RE: Flying J Ripoff

Pilot in my area is always the same or lower than other stations. I use the charge card and has always been less than anyone else in the area!!!

RE: Slide outs. Any typical construction drawings out there

Unless you have access to a forklift or overhead crane leave it to a shop equipped to handle that kind of work. You'll find the slide needs to be removed to replace the support wood. I watch a shop put a small slide back in after repairs and it was a forklift and 3 men to get it lined up, guided in and secured.

RE: No Power to refridgerator

If it's a Norcold it's the over temperature light. Need to take it in and have it inspected by a dealer.

RE: What tire mfg. is best at sidewall crack prevention?

The best way to prevent tire from cracking is to cover them when ever your going to be parked for extend time!

RE: Any downside to a domestic refrigerator?

Only real draw back from being 25 in the Appliance repair business is getting service. In most cases it will cost double to triple what you would pay for a service repair in a stick and brick home. Mainly because of access. Live span on most home refrigerator has drop from an average 18 years with 3 service calls back in the 90s to 7-8 years today with 2 service calls. Another myth is the house refrigerator does not need to be level to operate, read the manual that comes with a household fridge. They do need to be as level as possible for proper operation since defrost water goes into a small pan under the unit. The biggest problem is refrigerators today use mostly circuit boards and this is the most common and one of the most expensive items other than the compressor to fail. Either one will fail prematurely from low voltage. The use of a household refrigerator is an owner decision since there are advantage to both types used in the RV industry.

RE: Does Campingworld scew customers that don't buy?

Camping World in Belleville Michigan does appointments all the time. Right now they are booked up at least 2-3 weeks in advance. They tell the customers that they can wait for there appointment date or leave the rig and if an opening comes up they will work it in. They also try to work in those emergencies that happen to people on the road. I've seen them go out of there way to help RVers. On the Collision side it's usually a drop it off cause the insurance company has to look at and then give the Okay for repairs, parts order with sometimes months for parts to be received, and then work can start. It doesn't matter if you're a Good Sam member or not everyone is treated the same!!!!!!!

RE: Camping world lying? Outrageous response Las vegas

You didn't say what was wrong with the tires that they need to be replaced under warranty. It's not the first time I've heard that a manufacture wants the tires for inspection before replacing. I agree with that not just Camping World but all service centers should give you an appointment time for the warranty work but then again if they have to order parts it may end up sitting there for a while.

RE: Power Cord/Extension Cord Melted Together

Cut the ends off and replace them which is a lot cheaper than new cords. If you haven't pick up a voltage meter. They melted from either low voltage, or bad connection but my bets on low voltage.

RE: Tire Inflation Guide

Need to look at the load range on the replacement tires. Most RV replacement tires are one or two load ranges high with a higher max. pressure then what was originally put on. I was taught many moons ago that to be safe air tires to 10% of what the max. pressure is on the tire. This has worked for 40 years now.

RE: Troubling pattern w/Pilot/Flying J

Only had a couple of problems a few years back with the charge card when they first can out. Use it all the time since all the station around SE MI are within a couple cents of each other with the discount works for us. Gas buddy is useless unless you want to drive all over town to a station I wouldn't attempt to drive my RV into.

RE: Water heater repair worth sharing

The problem is if you can do it with the right parts and safely it can be worth it. Gas valves are not only a safely device but also controls pressure. Using non stand parts can endanger you, your family and others. If you can not repair to factory spec. then replace the item for every ones safety. Saving a few dollars is not worth the cost of a hospital visit or bill from a fire department.

RE: Totaled my rig

Sorry for the accident! Sounds like you were driving in windy conditions. I've made it a habit to stay put if cross wind gusts over 30 MPH are expected. Maybe the truckers was going that speed because he knew the winds were gusting. Remember just because it says 70MPH does not mean you should drive that fast if unsafe conditions dictate otherwise. The Mackinaw Bridge is a good example of cross wind driving with days that trucks and RV are escorted across at under 25MPH because of high cross winds or even not allowed until the winds die down.

RE: Quality Vendor to Purchase Motor Home Tires

Those are old tires since Goodyears are now all load range G in that size. They sound like original and if one goes it's time to replace them all. You should be running load range G all the way around.

RE: Fixing a REALLY old American Apliance (Suburban) water heater

From a 25 year Appliance tech. either convert to all electric with a Hot Rod kit or replace the water heater. Bypassing/eliminating a gas solenoid is a fire or possible explosion waiting to happen since the two solenoids are a safety design!!!! Water heaters start a about $450. Your burner tube is just about rust out and bypassing the gas valve is an accident waiting to happen.

RE: purchasing new tires

Have the tires inspected by a qualified tire dealer after 6 years and at least once a year thereafter. If tires are good they can go 10-11 years. I'll be changing my back 11 year old Goodyears next month which are still good but tread depth is getting down.

RE: Thor AXIS or VEGAS ruv

Not impressed with Thor quality control. They have come along way but standards are not as high as the other MH manufactures. Thor has bought up several manufactures but done little to improve quality.

RE: Outside fiberglass ripped off

Inspect it real close for water intrusion around the area where in ripped off. A lot of time water will seep in cause the wood to swell and pull away along seams.
