RE: Wind!

We were in a camp near Garden City, Kansas when a tornado was heading our way. High winds, rain, hale, lightning, and a lot of shaking. No where to go. Had the weather radio on all the time. It missed the area we were in and glad of it!

RE: Gulfstream Water Heater Light and Switch

The electric heating element is burned out. I suspect that while I had the motorhome in for other repair, someone saw the light on and switched the light off. This would then turn the element on without water causing it to burn out. That light is confusing in that it is opposite of the way it should work. Yes it is SW6DE.

RE: Gulfstream Water Heater Light and Switch

I have a 2007 Gulfstream Yellowstone Cruiser with a Suburban gas/electric water heater. I am talking about the electric heating switch and light.

Gulfstream Water Heater Light and Switch

I have a Gulfstream Class C. When the inside water heater is switched off, the red switch light next to the switch comes on. When I switch the water heater on , the light goes out. Seems it should be the opposite. Anyone else with a Gulfstream have the red switch light on when the switch is off? How about anybody with this?

RE: Itasca, Winnebago and Forest River Diesel Options

What questions did you have about diesel options. Very few class C with diesel options.

RE: HOT AND COLD WATER HOSES

Thank you guys for the responses. I too have caped the ends to stop the leaks. Outside showers are worthless.

HOT AND COLD WATER HOSES

I had a leak at my outside shower. Every time I fix it, the leak starts again later on. I found out that Accuflex T2008 for COLD WATER was used on the Hot and Cold water lines. They were connected to pex hoses through T fittings. Not good when hot water runs through the cold water only flex tubing. This is what caused the leaks. Anyone else have this problem?

RE: New Holiday Rambler Class A...no interior!

Now you say repoed! The owner may have stripped them before they were reposed. Maybe they were mobile meth labs! Who knows. Maybe it was a mobil morg for funeral homes. The list goes on and on!

RE: California DMV

The motorhome vin# tells what year the motorhome was built, what year the frame and engine are, and what year the motorhome is. The frame does not have a vin#. The frame has a serial #. The year of the motorhome is determined by the year it was built and the year model info in the vin # provided by the manufacture. The frame year is not used to determine the model year. You sure you didn't buy a 2004 model and not a 2005 model? If you really want to know do as I did, call the manufacture and give them the vin# so they can look it up to tell you the year model. They will also send you a letter telling you what year model it is. Then you can show the letter to the DMV as proof of model year.

RE: Missouri driving age restrictions

Age discrimination! I respectfully disagree. It would be "discrimination" only if they revoked or restricted your driving rights based on your age only, instead of based on your skill, knowledge and physical ability as they are here. It's discrimination because your skill, knowledge, and physical ability is being challenge due to age. Everyone should be challenged, not just older drivers!

RE: New Master Catalog

Got mine today. I like to look thru to see what's new on the market. Always finding new things to look at and to think, "do I need that or not".

RE: Sitting @ Dinette w/slide in when stopped?

One of the many reasons why I don't like slides is the "quick stop" when you don't want to extend them. That must be a new definition of "quick stop" that I'm not familiar with. I timed our slide and it takes exactly 41 seconds to deploy and another 41-42 seconds to retract. I know for fact that we never stop for less than 82 seconds. And we use our dinette all of the time with the slide retracted with no problem what-so-ever. Perhaps, but you're considered a real douchebag if you throw out your slides at a truck stop or oasis while you grab a bite to eat or a quick nap. That is debatable!

RE: Need help with Invisibrake

What braking cable are you talking about?

RE: Need help with Invisibrake

Sounds like enblthen is correct about looked up steering. Make sure that the steering is unlocked per instructions. That is what will happen if steering is locked, front wheels will be dragged side ways on turns. Need ignition key in inorder to do this.

RE: Need help with Invisibrake

Sounds like the power steering belt is slipping. Power steering does not run when towing a car.

RE: Camping Altercations?

When our kids were still at home my brother and I always took our families in the fall to the NF. We would camp and ride 4-wheelers for a week. We always stayed at the same spot at the end of a dead end road. We went up one morning and put up our tent and put the chairs around the camp fire ring then headed back for the travel trailers. My brother was first back because he lived closer. When he got there the tent and chairs were thrown out in the woods and three men and three trailer (from out of state) were set up in our spot. It got really ugly and they were threatening him. He told them they better sleep with one eye open. He was still mad the next day and went back with a couple of friends but they were gone. They had told him they were staying for a week but I guess they changed their mind. We always teased him about it, said you might be a redneck if you ever got in a fight over a camping spot. Per the National forest service rules, you are required to occupy the site and not just leave something there to "reserve" the spot. What did you expect to happen? That's nonsense. We had occupied the site by unloading our first load. You are saying you cannot leave camp. We setup camp (tent, chairs, firewood, tables)and went after the rest of our stuff. What about people that have camp setup and go out to hunt. Is it OK to throw their stuff out in the woods and move into their site. Sorry, I was thinking of a Forest service camp site. Were you setting up a camp that was out in the woods like a deer camp and not a Forest service a camp site?

RE: Receiver tube/hitch shank slack or play?

If you pull a car with that play and more so when you need to raise or lower with an adapter meaning 2 connections, the play adds up enough to cause the tail wagging the dog effect. It will throw your rear end around. Drill a 1/2 " hole on the side and on top. Weld a 7/16" nut on the out side of each hole. Use a 7/16" bolt to tighten up against the tube eliminating the play. Be sure to use a jam nut so the bolt won't loosen up. The silent hitch from CW only is good for one direction. The play is up/down and side/side. Moves 2 directions. Blue OX makes one that locks both directions.
