RE: Check engine light on V-10

The first thing I would ask what was the code that caused the light to come on. then look the code up and see if they are on the right track. Then go from there.

RE: Electric awning question?

It is possible that your awning has a wind sensor that activated with the gust of wind and tried to retract your awning as your wife was trying to extend it with the switch . The awning was receiving 2 opposing signals and didn't know what to do so it shut down.

RE: Slide won't close on one side

If your slide runs with a rack and pinion gear system, the pinion gear could have jumped a tooth or two on the rack on one side and is now out of time. Put the slide out and using a marker count the teeth on the rack on one side between the end of the rack and to the tooth that meshes on each side. If there is a difference in the number of teeth, you will have to remove the shear pin on one gear and slide it out of mesh and move that side of the room in or out by hand so when you slide the gear back in mesh, both gears are back in time with each other. For example if one side is 120 teeth to where it meshes with rack and the other side is 124 teeth, one side is off 4 teeth and needs to be moved that far. If your slide is a hydraulic operated, I have no clue what to do. I had the same misalignment problem on my Power gear slide and that is how I got it back in time, now it closes both sides evenly

RE: Open Tanks with no worries

Without telling us more details how it works, most people on this forum have a good working knowledge of sanitary systems and with more details could probably give some advice on if it will work. I for one would not pay $200.00 for such a device especially if each RV would have to be individually fitted. Who would do the fitting?

RE: Broken plastic Atwood hot water heater drain plug

Heat a square shank screw driver and push it into the center of the stuck plastic. Then put a crescent wrench on the square shank and unscrew the broken plug.

RE: Slide topper replacement ?

Go to Tough Tops web site and it will tell you how to order new fabrick and the DIY section will show you how to do it. You need a minimum of 2 people but 3 is better to keep from tearing the new fabric while sliding it in the slot. A couple of ladders will also help Tough tops When it comes up, click on DIY and scroll down to slide Toppers video and watch how to measure, order, and install. Not too bad of a job with 2 handy people

RE: Low Tech ......Toilet/Tank Issue

TURNKEY, I have a old broom handle that we use to "stir the pot" when it starts stacking up. This works very well. Additionally, I calibrated the stick with marks that show how full the tank really is. Steve And then what do you do with contaminated Stick? Sounds STINKY to me!!!

RE: Adding additional fresh water tank: no pressure to faucets

Sounds like you have the intake and outlet hoses switched. Your pictures did not show up.

RE: California 101 to Yosemite

My route would be south on 101 and catch hwy 20 between Willits and Ukiah, Then Hwy 20 over to Williams and south on I 5 to Stockton, and then `East on Hwy 4, cross town freeway, over to Hwy 99. South on 99 to Merced and then Hwy 140 to Yosemite. Fuel up at safeway in Willits on 101 and then again at Merced before heading to Yosemite. (No fuel in Yosemite) Some will recommend hwy 120 in Manteca but that puts you over New Preist's grade which is kind of steep and windy. Doable but I don't like it my self in a MH. OK in a car.

RE: No I did NOT sign up for your emails

My Preferences do not stay unchecked and yes, I click on "Submit Changes". Then I go back in to Preferences and they're unchecked. A few days later they are again checked. I just did it again....so frustrating. It's like they'll email you or send you tons of paper even though you uncheck that you don't want it. Anyone else with this problem? Just for fun I tried it, unchecked everything, hit submit changes and then went back in like you did, and guess what? everything was checked again. I guess I am now in for a lot of emails. Oh well

RE: Emergency Start switch didn't work

Most "aux start switches" don't actually switch battery banks, they tie the banks together. If your chassis batteries are really low, or bad, the switch may have to be held for some time because the bad batteries draw most of the initial load. I agree with this post. push and hold the button a little while and let the two batteries equalize. It is kind of like using jumper cables, hook up and let the jumper vehicle run a little bit before trying to start the dead vehicle.

RE: No I did NOT sign up for your emails

Go to "my Forums" and then click on "My Preferences", then scroll down quite a bit to "E Mail preferences" and then unclick all the ones you don't want, then make sure you scroll all the way to the bottom and click on "Submit changes" DONE

I assume you are talking about a FAN. Am I right?

RE: Travel assistance away from home

You need to call Itasca and request with them, not good sam. Itasca should also pay for the AC if it is a brand new RV.

RE: Gas tank leak/gas smell

I had a gas leak where the fill tube connected with the tank. Tightened the hose clamp and it stopped.

RE: Hubby busy!

What is your original problem and have you posted the problem before? While reading this post what happened to your tires? Otherwise your post makes no sense to me.

RE: Electrical issues ..Please Help!!

My guess is you have a dead battery. What voltage does it read? should be 12.7 volts for a fully charged battery. So use your volt meter and check and report back what you find and you will get more help after that. When you hooked up the 7way from the tow vehicle you were running off of the Tow vehicle battery and things worked from that fully charged battery. Things did not work from your RV battery because it is probably dead. They don't stay charged all year and you need to plug into shore power to recharge the battery. Report back what you find about battery voltage.

RE: Tire OVERPRRESSURE Warning on Chevy 250 Silverado

When you rotate the tires on a Chev with pressure sensors the sensors stay with the tire/wheel. You then go into the owners manual and use the procedure to "Relearn" each position. This is done on the dash board by selecting "Relearn" and then follow the directions from the manual. just a hint before you start remove all valve caps and have an air supply hose that will reach all tire, then start the procedure and don't hesitate too long between tires. I think you start with the left front but not sure, but it is all in the owners manual if you read it. Good luck
