Piezo Electric Add On

Saw a thread on this awhile back but can't find it. My rig has a four burner stove and oven. It's old school light with a match or whatever. Can someone recommend an add on piezo electric kit so I can add this feature to each burner. Thanks. jor

RE: Need new captain chairs

If you are in the Tucson area there is a great upholsterer there. Bill, If you don't mind, I'd like that info. We are also in Tucson. Thanks. jor

RE: 2000 era, Beaver or Foretravel

I can speak to the retarder vs. Jake issue as I have had both (99 Foretravel with retarder and 95 with Jake). I really like my 2 speed Jake but it really can't compare to the Allison transmission retarder. The retarder gives you total control of braking and you just can't believe the stopping distance with the disk brakes and full retarder. Regarding the transmission heating issue, yes, the retarder heats the fluid but ours always stayed well below the Allison limit going down those long mountain grades. So the retarder, in my opinion wins hands down but the Jake is a good and safe second choice. jor

RE: Filling Drill Holes in Fiber Glass Roof

I'd just shoot some self leveling Dicor into them. jor

RE: Crack in fresh water tank

Before trying to repair the tank, find out what material it's made of. I had a leaky black tank and tried the plastic welding route. That didn't work. That's when I found out about Cross Linked Polyethylene. (different molecular structure than polyethylene). If a tank is made of this material, it simply cannot be repaired. It can't be heat welded and nothing will stick to it. Anyhow, before doing anything I recommend you determine the material of your tank and then proceed accordingly. Good luck with this issue. jor

RE: Generator Exhaust Tip

Is this for looks only or is there any other purpose for the tip? Just looks. I had them on our last rig on the gen and Aqua Hot and like the look. Those didn't vibrate off but come to think of it, I believe they were welded! I don't use the gen all that much so maybe the O'Reilly's one will be fine. Thanks for the input. jor

Generator Exhaust Tip

I've got a 1 1/4" straight steel exhaust pipe on my generator (Isuzu engine). I'm looking fgor a good quality chrome turndown extension. I'd prefer the type with a set screw rather than a clamp. PPL has the 1 1/4" but they are a little pricey ($44) and are the clamp on type. Anyone have a source for a 1 1/4" set screw type? Thanks. jor

RE: Black Tank Level Indicator issues..

Another alternative is to replace the factory system with an after market one like SeeLevel. That's what I did. The SeeLevel works from the outside of the tank, uses existing wiring and yields accurate percentage values for black, gray, water and LPG. jor

RE: Entry Door Opening Window

If this is on your Foretravel coach Yea, I was down at the factory a few weeks ago but I forgot to talk with someone about this annoyance. Thanks. jor

Entry Door Opening Window

My rig has an unusual entry door window. It opens by sliding up like an old counter weight window. The line that provided the lift for the window snapped and the window no longer holds itself in place when raised. I'm trying to figure if I can fix it. Take a look at these photos. The red arrow in the whole-door photo shows where the line/string was attached to sliding window. You would just unlock the bottom window and slide it straight up. In the other photo the blue arrow shows the rollers that line passed over and the red arrow where I think it terminated, probably onto some kind of spring or roller device. Anyone have any experience disassembling one of these? Thanks. jor http://i102.photobucket.com/albums/m105/joroiga/1_zpsabfc8169.jpg http://i102.photobucket.com/albums/m105/joroiga/2_zps4685384d.jpg

RE: Coolant Change ( Hose'es thermostat)

I was reading this thread with moderate interest when I started thinking about my own situation. I'm running an M11 with Shell's Rotella Extended Life Coolant Premix. In that I use the ELC I know I don't need to worry about the SCA-DCA issue. So what? Well, yesterday I changed my filters and replaced the coolant filter with the same one that I took off (Fleetguard WF2071). That filter had been installed at a large Cummins authorized shop. After reading the thread I checked my filter. On the side it indicated "4 Units." Checked the internet and confirmed that this meant four units of DCA. So, at Brett's suggestion I called Shell and asked what I should do. The Shell engineer said that no damage had been done in the 10,000 miles I had run with that coolant filter. Said that I would have some particulates in the coolant that would not otherwise be there but no harm done. He suggested changing to a blank filter which I will do manana. So, any of you guys running ELC and having others do your filter changes might want to check your coolant filter for peace of mind. jor

RE: Pre inspection mechanic/Tucson

I would recommend Ken Cameron of Cameron Reliable Mobile RV Service. I don't know if he does inspections but as far as I can tell, he can fix any problem on any motorhome. Give him a call at 520.490.7632. Also sending you a PM. jor Forget the PM. Message says you don't allow them.

RE: Small Inverter Issue & Recommendation

One other question: Of those recommended, which is the quietest? That little Bistek was pretty noisy. Re hard wiring, I think I will pass as I'd like to be able to move it and I already have a rig inverter that powers most of the outlets. Thanks. jor

RE: Small Inverter Issue & Recommendation

OK, I think I'll pick up a PSW. Now, what make? I need the kind designed to plug into a cig lighter 12 outlet and it should have a couple of AC plugs. I checked the Morningstar which looks like it's designed to be hard wired into a system. Checked out the Go Power and it looks about right. How about Power Bright and Samlex? I'm using it to run TV, DVD, iPod and charge various devices (iPad, laptop). Thanks. jor

RE: Small Inverter Issue & Recommendation

get a good psw Yea, I guess that would be a good solution. It looks like a couple hundred dollars for either the Go Power or Morningstar and I was hoping to get away for a lot less money. I could always do nothing and just plug into my rig's inverter but then there's dry camping and the overhead of the old Heart Freedom 25. I was hoping someone had a hundred dollar solution! Anyhow, thanks and I'll cogitate for awhile. jor

RE: Small Inverter Issue & Recommendation

UPDATE I was looking online for an explanation and I came across a suggestion to reset the iHome. Just remove battery, let sit and try it again. It worked! Not sure why the Bestek would cause this. jor

Small Inverter Issue & Recommendation

I have been using a small inverter for TV and iPod player. I paired up the inverter (Bestek 300w MSW) with my iHome player (was using in the house). It worked fine for a couple of weeks and then would no longer play the iPod (wouldn't work in dock or usb mode). I like the iHome so I bought another one. You guessed it. Same deal. Even though the Bestek indicates it supports the iPod it seemingly has blown two players. Anyhow, I'm looking for a recommendation for a good combination of radio/iPod player and small inverter. Pure sine wave? My regular rig inverter is MSW and works fine with the iHome btw. Thanks. jor http://i102.photobucket.com/albums/m105/joroiga/ihome_zpsb2964995.jpg

RE: What would you do??

He's going to need at least three more batteries (or preferably four 6V batteries) and a 1000W PSW inverter to keep from running the generator almost 24/7. I'm thinking he is a great candidate for a nice solar installation too.I don't see any way he will be able to avoid a significant expenditure in order to dry camp with his new rig. jor
