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

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

RE: Running 2 AC's on 30 amp

He has a 2005 Fleetwood MH and it is probably equipped with an EMS system. My 2004 Fleetwood is equipped with an EMS. When both AC's try to run, the EMS will "SHED" power to one of the AC's and a little red light will come on with the word SHED showing. You can see which one is being "SHEDDED". When it safe to turn power back to both AC's the EMS will "unshed" and power will be restored. Of course you should probably not have the water heater on 110 electric or use the Micro wave while using both AC's.

RE: CATV / OTA problem

Have you used the remote, press menu, and set the proper "INPUT" to "Antena" or "Cable" and then do a "SCAN" to bring in the available channels? It won't bring in any Channels until you scan. Give it a try and point the antenna in the direction of a Known transmitter in the area you are in. Digital channels will usually end in a .1, or .2 or .3, for example if you normally get channel 3, it will now come in as channel 3.1 or 3.2. Remember SCAN SCAN SCAN As an addition, you can bring up Antenna web and enter the Zip code where you are at and it will show the direction and distance to the available transmitter. You might need a compass to point your antenna Antenna web

RE: Replacing ABS Sensor on W24 Chassis

That link that you posted is the link I used to solve my ABS sensor problem. I got by with just removing each sensor and cleaning them and the cage and reinstalling them. Note on the link, you have to scroll down to find the ABS topic. Read it all
