RE: how do you remove watermarks on sides of rv

What do you all use to remove the watermarks from the sides of your rv? I have a black and gold finish on my coach and have the water runoff stains from the awning down the sides and can't seem to find anything to remove them. I have used the black stain/watermark remover stuff you can get at campingworld but it did not work. I have tried wax, wash and wax for airplanes and nothing has worked. Any help or info is greatly appreciated. Most any degreaser will work. Try Simple Green. It should work like a charm.

RE: Is the engine dying a serious issue in a '94 Damon Intruder?

There is no way to know. I would bet that there are probably a dozen RV's for sale close by that would not stall out on the first test drive. It is definitely not a good sign when the engine stalls during a test drive. The battery would not be the problem if it started back up without having to jump start it.

Is this drive Motorhome friendly?

RE: How do you answer when a stranger asks about MPG?

I just tell them that I get 6 mpg. On this site, I find this discussion more akin to fish stories though. I love it when someone tells me they get 12 mpg with a class A.

RE: Mount Rushmore in the Winter

I am still fairly young and don't mind taking some risk with traveling up in those areas during the winter months. I love touring around in areas with fewer people because I hate lines and waiting. I tow a Jeep Sahara and it did great in Silverton a couple of years ago at Christmas. The snow was about 1/2 the depth of the tires through town. Loved it! The route I am going, does not look like it will take me through any tremendously high mountain passes, but do have a set of chains for both vehicles if snow gets hubcap deep on a Ferris Wheel.

RE: Mount Rushmore in the Winter

We went to Durango and Silverton in 2012 during this time. Loved it. Very few people for getting away from it all. How do the slide topper awnings do in the snow and ice? Can you pull the slide in without tearing up the awning?

RE: What to expect with a new gasser

my wife's relatives had a gasser and a toad and when they came over the the rockies she had to get out and drive the toad over, it was just too much for the MH gasser to pull. he traded it in and bought a diesel and ended that problem How many years ago was this?

RE: What to expect with a new gasser

I do have a gasser, but pull a jeep. You will definitely slow down, but you will be on par with the loaded semi-trucks pulling steep grades.

Mount Rushmore in the Winter

Considering a trip from the panhandle of Florida north to Mount Rushmore, Custer National Park, Cody, Wyoming, Billings Montana. Will be heading that way through Memphis and Jonesboro, Arkansas. We will be looking to do this at Christmas and New Years. Any suggestions or recommendations?

RE: sleeping with generator on

Now we will have above members coming back and saying that 500 deaths for whole USA in neglectable risk. With no indication of the CO source in those 500 unsubstantiated incidents mentioned, we have no way of calculating the risk factor from running onboard generators. Exactly. I would actually like to look at the data that the writer is referring to associated with these "500" deaths. No doubt Co2 is poisonous and can cause death, but I really would like to look over the data.

RE: sleeping with generator on

If your rig is well maintained with a functioning Co2 detector, you should be fine. We have been sleeping with the generator running for years. No problems. They are designed to do this. The recommendation for the Genturi is concerning to me. Your generator manufacturers do not recommend using this add on device. In fact, I read a few years back in a Motorhome magazine, that these could potentially put you at greater risk of Co2 poisoning, as these expel gas above the rig where your AC's could recirculate the air into the rig. If these were safer to use, the industry would have added them years ago.

RE: Even new rigs need to be inspected when you get home

On a new rig ,it is very important to check/tighten every electrical connection. Starting with the batteries,auto transfer switch,distribution panel and so on. You do this without shore power and the inverter Off. You also want to check your water line connections,compression fittings into the fridge/icemaker and LP-gas line connections. Ask me how I know this? Siggy I can only imagine.

RE: Even new rigs need to be inspected when you get home

Other than these few small items, the new rig is smooth as silk driving down the road. I love how the chassis handles. It looks nice and everything is functional.

RE: Even new rigs need to be inspected when you get home

We get your point about the things you find later. However the real key is to do a thorough PDI before you leave the lot. Consider everything you find later partially your fault for not finding it before you sealed the deal. If you take this approach you will slow down and take all the time you need to scrutinize everything. Let the dealer know you plan to take lots of time looking the unit over. Scrutinizing everything sounds like a big hassle but in the long run it will save you headaches and time down the road My point of this post is to notify people to double check their caulk lines and make sure that part of the caulk line is not missing. Make sure that the caulking is appropriate to keep water out. I do not trust the dealer to caulk appropriately. I would rather do that myself to know that it is done right. On my way home, while it was raining, there was water in the windshield well at the bottom. After further investigation, I discovered that a couple of my clearance lights were not absolutely snug to the coach. Weather they were, or not, I would have sealed around them anyway. There is no way this could have been uncovered during a proper PDI. So, I say again, get on a ladder, check around each window and entry door. Make sure your lap sealant is covering all the holes on the roof, etc. This post does not apply to the folks who take multiple days to do "proper" PDI's.

RE: Even new rigs need to be inspected when you get home

It's really better catching those things before taking delivery. A proper PDI should have been done by you, then have the dealer fix those things before the transaction finalizes.Question. Did you get on a ladder and inspect each gasket of every window during the PDI? Did you get inside the shower and spray water on the inside shower doors to make sure there were no leaks outside of the shower during your PDI? Another question, did you inspect each of the clearance lights above the front windshield to make sure they were caulked appropriately during your PDI? I did the walk through very thoroughly. I took 2 plus hours to perform this. This including getting underneath the rig, on top of the rig and inspecting every gadget to make sure it worked before taking delivery. Now that we have that cleared up, there are items that need to be inspected thoroughly after bringing the rig home, and seals are one of them.

Even new rigs need to be inspected when you get home

I purchased a brand new Fleetwood Bounder a month ago. When I got home I did some inspection around the rig. The first thing I noticed is that caulking around windows and door was approximately half done. Shower doors were not caulked sufficiently to prevent water leakage. Clearance lights were not caulked sufficiently to prevent leakage inside. Before others start talking about poor workmanship and how their particular company gave them a perfect rig, three of the four rigs I have purchased, I purchased new from different manufacturers. Each had similar issues when I drove them off the lot. Water leakage will destroy a motorhome. Everyone check to make sure your rig is caulked and sealed appropriately. Don't forget countertops too. Happy Camping
