RE: compartment lock

To open a door that you can't operate the hasp like in your case, you have to look at the sides of the door where the hasp is located. I have used a short stubby knife to slip it into the crack and push at the pin of the hasp while pressing in on the door. Then allow the door to put pressure on the pin again while I pull back on the knife and re-apply pressure on the pin again. Repeat over and over again until it finally gets to the open position. Then go to the opposite side and repeat. Its a test of patience but it works for me on my Fleetwood Expedition. My pins break and become useless but have to be forced open just like in your case.

RE: Power Wahser to Clean Rear Radiator

Had my rear radiator pulled and cleaned at abou 35,000 miles. I bought the MH used. The slobber tube was extended at the time of the cleaning. Since then, 80,000 miles I try to find a car wash that I can fit into every year or so and use the pressure spray from the rear, carefully. I do not have any overheating problems. Course it helps to start that procedure with a professionally cleaned radiator :)

RE: I am stupid, I am stupid, I am stupid.........

The pairing of wires in same direction is a bit unconventional but not really wrong. As long as the bare ends are not sticking out the ends, which is hard to see in the photo. The yellow wire missed its mark to make a connection and I don't see a second wire in the connector unless its the green wire thats end is not seen.

RE: Campground Question

Heres the scoop: The campground isn't in the 21st century yet. No credit cards???? Heck you can get a scanner for a cellphone now very easily. So you know that the majority of their income is not reported. So records are sparse or non existent to say the least. A lawn chair with a rock on it to keep it from blowing away would have kept your spot secure. Simple stuff. Like you, I would have been POed if it happened to me. But I spend my time complaining about the fuel prices and the government.

Did ya' ever notice?

When the campground has a central dumpster or multiple dumpsters, the wife will walk up with a bag of garbage, with one hand open the lid and at the same time sling the bag into the dumpster and walk off letting the lid just settle down on its own. The husband? He walks up to the dumpster, and with one hand opens the lid and holds it open while he gives the contents of the dumpster a really good once over. Sometimes even moving something out of the way to get a better look...then sling the garbage into the dumpster and lets the lid slam and walks away.... On occasions, the husband will turn around and walk back and re-open the lid to give it just one more double look.

RE: What is the favored air compressor to carry?

I can easily recommend this one. Kobolt from Lowes Its $130 bucks and has a 2.6 inflation at 90 lbs. Pumps up to 150 lbs and is more than adequate for even those higher psi MH tires...I run 105 lbs and its a simple task to inflate them to proper poundage. Plus as a Vet you get 10$ off of the price so that pays for the tax.

RE: Hard Starting

Try starting it without ever touching the accelerator. Don't give it that startup pump.

RE: New (or not so new) SCAM!

We can all read these phonies on this thread and are smart enough to know that they aren't legit. But the sad thing is: They are getting better and better at their scams. Even "smart" people are being taken every day by them. Its not going to go away, they are just going to keep educating themselves and get better and better at their ploys.

RE: Did I Do a Dumb Thing?

I don't think it will have any effect on your emission test. Suggest you run the RV fairly hard just before the test and arrive with it at full operating temperature. Never test a cold engine.

RE: Getting screwed by CoachNet

3. This may be the case. CW has their own Coverage for this type problem on new sales and even tho the OP's father has Coachnet, Coachnet KNOWS that the RV is already covered. So, they decline coverage and is probably IN the contract that if you have overlapping coverage, the PRIMARY FIRST Insurance is who you go to. Doug A lot of speculation but I'm betting Dougrainer nails it. Thats the only thing that makes sense.

RE: Foot pain - Orthotics?

I refereed soccer for well over 20 years. Didn't quit until they doubled the size of the field :) At one point, my feet hurt so bad, I decided I have to quit. I couldn't run or even walk without pain. I was diagnosed with Plantar Fascitis. A set of orthodics, about 2 o 300 dollars back then but within a couple weeks I was running again and without any pain. Not to say everyone will have the same results but my results were truly amazing.

RE: PVC pipe has crack

Lowes carries a product that is made especially for PVC typ piping. It can even be put on a wet surface. Sorry I can't remember the name but I used it on my shower drain in an area that would be virtually impossible to replace without removing the shower and its held for over 5 years now.

RE: ZEP/Red Max Pro

Zep makes a stripper for just that task. It works very well. If you want to hear more, send me a PM.

RE: 15 amp Questions

The majority of all the above is true. One thing that will help you deal with the 15 amps available is to run anything off of propane that has that capability...ie: water heater, refrigerator, cooking. Turn your converter down to it lowest charging capability. That little bugger can overload a 15 amp circuit all by itself if its allowed to. Can you possibly run a second 15 amp circuit to the RV? If so, split the electrical to the converter and add a male plug and plug it into the second circuit. You can also do the same thing with the AC so that its the only thing on a single circuit. You have to get creative. I do this when parked in my sons driveway....I draw from three seperate 15/20 amp circuits and really don't have to monitor my usage much at all.

RE: ZEP/Red Max Pro

I didn't intend this to become a flame war amongst posters. I appreciate the advice given and am taking it all into consideration. It's obvious that much like there is passionate Ford, Dodge, and Chevy fans there is the same about the different methods on upkeep of their rigs. I think that's a good thing because no one way is right or wrong.As it turns out, this is such a hot button issue to one individual, it will probably go to private communication between interested as did the last post on the same subject. Most people can feel strongly about a subject but still understand that there is a difference of opinions and be able to deal with it. Not this subject.

RE: ZEP/Red Max Pro

If you do a search you will find that many users have had very good luck using it. Its not the only product that will give great results, its just one of the products that will give great results. But in answer to your question. I applied Red Max Pro to the basement doors on my 2001 MH 3 years ago and they came out looking great and still do look great. With your MH being primarily metal, I'm assuming you've tried a good wax application? Meguires is a very good product that should give very good results. Thats all I used on my '57 Ford for years and of course it was inside all its later life, I couldn't have been happier with my results. Suggest you try a small panel for a self test and make up your own mind as to its worth. Do a similar panel close by with a good wax/polish and compare after a period of time.

RE: Familarity of telemarketers

Obviously there is a payback for the telemarketers pitch, resulting in a sale of something. I have to ask? Has anyone or anyone you know, ever bought anything from a telemarketer? I don't even know anyone who hasn't hung up on them.
