Ice in the A/C

Any idea what causes this? We have a Dometic on our Work & Play. It has to work pretty hard to keep it cool at our races. The first time it happened, the ice got so bad it stopped the A/C and caused the 30A power cord to overheat and slightly melt at the connection to the camper. That was late last year and we had no issues again but rarely used the A/C. Then recently, it iced up again. It didn't get so bad to stop the motor but when we turned off the A/C and then restarted it later, the ice had melted enough to get blown out the vent onto the floor. Some pieces were big enough you could use in a drink. I pulled the cover on the unit and everything looks great. No wasp nests or mouse houses or anything. In fact, everything looks almost new. It has that styrofoam shell over the majority of the parts and everything is really clean and the cooling radiators are in great shape. The camper is still under warranty but the dealer is 100 miles away and I wouldn't have time until late June at least.

RE: Fuel mileage with/without cruise.

I'd never use the cruise in hilly areas. But when we had our F450, cruise would increase my mpg's on typical interstates.

RE: Shine On Polish for your Rv

Never used that brand, and there's tons of good specialty polishes out there. I use NuFinish. Cheap and lasts a long time. Never heard of Shine On. But I have a bottle of NuFinish I just bought for the Work & Play. For those who've used NuFinish, is it safe to go over the decals as well?

RE: Toy Hauler vs. Regular Travel Trailer

Are toy haulers built better than regular travel trailers, or are they more pr less the the same build quality? Does their metal skin make them more leak resistant, or is there no difference? We had two TTs before we bought a Cyclone. The two TTs (2004 Puma, 2010 Sabre) were FAR better and more reliable campers than our Cyclone was. We now have a Work & Play. Although not as fancy as the normal toy haulers, I love the build quality. Metal roof and tough as nails. Taking it to the tracks every other week has been no worries for this thing so far.

RE: Marcus Lemonis: The Way of the Profit

I would love to work at a Camping World, even if it was selling campers. But it would need to be the way most of us want it to be. Being honest, up front, and not just getting someone to sign on the dotted line. It might hurts sells to start with but wouldn't the long term reputation pay off in the end? But what do I know? I'm just a common man.

RE: New scissor jacks.

I also have to order a replacement jack because we had one get bent recently. Amazon appears to be a much better deal. Just by preliminary checking, Camping World was quite expensive from what I could tell.

RE: Cyclone Model: CY 4200 All New Concept!

What Steve76eb said is spot on. We had a Cyclone for two years and will never have another Heartland camper again. For us, a very unreliable camper and a dismal company to deal with. If I were getting another, KZ Infernos, Grand Design Momentum, and Jayco Seismics would top the list of the "cookie cutter" models. Not sure which ones are being made now but there are some even better ones out there that are far more durable and built more for full-timing. Excel Wild Cargo and the New Horizons are amazing and expensive. But you get what you pay for.

RE: Need to figure out how to haul my toys and my wife.

Work and play fifth wheel 44rls has a 20 foot garage but may be out of your weight range. The Work and play bumper pull 30fla has a 17 foot cargo area which I think would be in your weight range.. You may have too many toys for a toy hauler and a motorhome rated to pull a 10k plus trailer may be the way to go.. That is exactly what I was thinking. They're a little difficult to find but the Work & Play 44RLS is my dream race hauler. Taco. Call RV Outlet and see if they have any suggestions.

RE: Costco Insurance

I'm going to assume the post about Costco being a liberal company is in response to their stance on raising the minimum wage. Costco has always paid their employees far better than the norm for "common" retail store positions. They know that if the minimum wage is raised to something like $15/hr., its going to put a LOT of their competition on the curb. I personally have always resented the concept of a retail store making me pay them up front money just for the privilege to shop in their store. That's just me. :)

RE: Did Marcus buy Trailer Life?

I've always been a huge Trailer Life fan. Especially where people could write in for help with problems or they could complain or praise how a company treated them. Trailer Life seemed to be quite open to publishing those company's names without fear of retribution from said company. Hope things don't change.

RE: Costco Insurance

"yeah I must be weird." No your not weird, Costco is a very liberal company and I am not. I have been a member in the past and will not ever be one again. X2

RE: Voltage changes

I had a 2011 Cyclone 370C for two years. Therefore I would HIGHLY recommend the Voltage. Its what I would buy if I were in the market again.

RE: Which Generator? Need Your Opinions

I went ahead and ordered me a Honda EU2000i Companion for now. We have four more races between now and November 2. The way the weather's been lately, I think we can avoid the AC for the rest of the season. I'll use the companion for now and at the start of next year, I'll probably go ahead and get a second 2000 with the parallel kit and the extended run fuel tank.

RE: Forest River Catalyst, anyone have any experience?

I like the concept. In my opinion, the cookie cutter toy haulers (Cyclones, Raptors, etc) just struggle to standing up to daily toy hauler duties. That's why we bought a Work & Play. The Catalyst seems like a step up from the Work & Plays. I asked my dealer why they didn't carry them since they already carried lots of Work & Plays. He said the market was too limited. The Catalysts have such heavy pin weights, it limits itself to even less buyers. I still like them though. :)

RE: Which Generator? Need Your Opinions

Just a note that may help; you say the TT is 30 amp but you are mentioning some generators larger than needed. A 30 amp service is equal to 3,600 watts. A 7,000 watt generator will produce unneeded excess power. Good point. This is why I thought the Yamaha on craigslist was a perfect setup. Until I saw the price and the fact it was over two years old. But a 4500 watt Yamaha seems ideal. More than ample power and over 15 hours run time at 1/4 throttle.

RE: F-350 vs F-450. Any experience making the choice

For the last several years, its almost been a wash. I had a 2011 F450 for two years and it was a fine truck. It did everything well and my wife even liked driving it. Honestly, I thought the 4.30 rear end was overkill because the power all three are putting out these days is like a locomotive. For 2015, I think the F350/F450 comparison is a much bigger deal. I haven't even seen a 2015 F450 at a dealer yet. But its been beefed up even more. Its gonna be hard to get any real world experience yet. But if you could afford it, I'd go with the F450. I'm like you. I'd rather have too much truck than not enough.

RE: Which Generator? Need Your Opinions

Kit comes with a custom fuel cap where the honda can draw fuel in continuously through the fuel hose from a secondary tank. Looks similar to a fuel tank for an outboard motor. http://www.wisesales.com/duration-power-dual-feed-extended-run-fuel-tank.html Kit shown may not have the new fuel caps so call to make sure what you need. I assume you could even top off this fuel tank without shutting down the generators. I like that. Smart idea and would suit us perfectly. Isn't it odd how some can be paralleled and some can't. I even see how the new Honda 7000s can be paralleled. Nothing like 14,000 watts to get something started. :)

RE: New scissor jacks.

Check Amazon as well. Last time I was looking, they were better priced.
