RE: 12 volt Fridge

The 12 volt option is really just for when you're driving. Cool it down first with 120 or propane.

RE: First time with an inverter

Thanks to everyone for the replies. I've got a better grasp on how folks deal with them and what we can do in our situation. :)

RE: First time with an inverter

This average user usually leaves it on 24/7. Probably harder on them to be turned on and off frequently.Ours is from 2004 (probably 2003) and there's a fan that runs continually while it's on. The manual does say to turn it off when not in use so that's what we want to do.

RE: First time with an inverter

Leave the TV and DVD on and just use the inverter switch to turn them on and off. Our inverter runs other things too so we have to actually unplug the TV since it is still on in standby drawing power when it is "off"Thanks for that - we'll try using the inverter switch to turn things off. If we can't seem to do it we'll end up replacing the switch with one that is lighted while on.

First time with an inverter

Our Roadtrek has an inverter for the TV & DVD player. There is a switch to turn the inverter on and off, and the TV & DVD don't work unless the switch is on. So, even if we're on shore power we have to turn on the inverter to watch a movie. Problem is we forget to turn it off when we go to bed and it runs all night... The owner's manual says to be sure to turn it off when not using. Is there a way to switch to shore power when we're hooked up or maybe get a lighted switch for the inverter so we are reminded that it is on? How does the average inverter user handle this?

RE: Water pump or owner malfunction - Update

..snip.. So I did the normal water fill - hooked up the hose with pressure regulator to the screw on water fill, switch the lever that's there from "normal operation" to "water fill" and proceeded to take on a full tank of water. Have done this hundreds of times and this was no different. Switched the lever back to 'normal' and disconnected the water and pressed the plug back into the water fill opening. ..snip.. I think it is that valve (the one with the lever on it that you turn to change where the water goes) that is bad. It is letting the pump push back into the FW tank. At least that is how mine works - if I forget to turn the valve back into normal position after filling the tank the pump will run and run because it never builds up pressure.

Thanks for the information and update!

RE: Shutting off the water

Cannot believe the number of people who do not turn water off. I can't believe it either. After reading on this forum how many people have had so much damage... We have a note over our door that says "Water Off?" so that when we leave we make sure to turn it off, whether it's the city water or the pump.

RE: Overnight stay in Birmingham?

Earlier this year we stayed at Five Mile Creek Canoe & Camping off of I-22. Easy access from the highway - exit 87. It was a very interesting stay - FHU and it was relatively cheap. Can't remember the amount - either $20 or $25. And... We paid the mayor. Yup - he came out to meet us at the city owned CG to collect. Their number is: 205-910-4746.

RE: informed delivery

I just got this in my email yesterday because I have a USPS account using MY USPS: "We are excited to announce that the My USPS application will soon be upgraded to offer you more benefits and convenience. No action is required from you - you will retain your My USPS benefits, but will also have access to Informed Delivery® notifications, a new, free feature that gives you the ability to see a digital preview of your incoming mail. Informed Delivery allows you to view grayscale images of the exterior, address side of your household’s letter-sized mailpieces* on a computer, tablet, or mobile device. This new feature offers the convenience of seeing what is coming to your mailbox - anytime, anywhere. Now when you log in to your My USPS account, you will be able to track packages and view a preview of your letter-sized mailpieces in one, integrated dashboard.

To learn more about Informed Delivery notifications, please visit the Informed Delivery FAQs.

RE: Is your S&B the Land of Hard Work?

Not a snowbird, but yes - this year especially our home is the land of hard work. We just retired this spring and took a one month trip in April. Since we got home it has been work, work, work. First the mower needed a new head gasket to mow the foot high grass. And like you we are getting a new roof and also hoping to build a garage for our new-to-us B. So we're cutting trees, talking to contractors, etc. Every day we have an agenda. I'm freaking out that we're going to lose the whole first summer. Winter comes quickly here and it lasts a looooong time. This morning I'm starting to plan our fall trip to the Adirondacks and Vermont. I'm hoping that the work will be done by then! Then we'll come home and work to get ready for winter. The condo idea sounds great - but then we would need to store our trip mobiles off site. :(

RE: where are the "B" people?

Oh, and I just though of this last night. The ideal way for me to travel would be to have a Class B towing a fifth wheel. I would park the fifth wheel say in Sedona for a month, then use the Class B to travel around in AZ, NM, TX, etc on one day or multi-day trips and use the fifth wheel as home base. Then move it to Utah for a month or so, and do the same. Then Wyoming, Colorado, etc. all across the country. Ideal, but I haven't seen a Class B that could tow a fifth wheel ;) I don't want to have to give up the Class B when the wife and I full time because its so useful for those short trips, urban exploration, festivals, day at the beach, etc. And I don't want to backup and move a fifth wheel, large motorhome or trailer every couple days either.Interesting idea - we can actually pull our trailer with our B. :)

RE: Back burner has yellow flame

OP here... Thanks to all for the ideas and help. I ran the furnace with no problem and the stove burners are very very clean. I'm thinking it might just be the regulator in the stove top, but I'm going to hold off a bit on getting a new one since it's $45 for a maybe...

RE: Award trailers

We've got one and love it. Very easy to tow. I can't help much with the mileage question as our tow vehicle is gas - and carbureted at that! We get about 8.4 mpg. Look close below the front window for evidence of leaks - definitely a weak point. I used 3M marine caulking all around the window to keep it from leaking. We love the layout, maneuverability, and size. Perfect for 2 people. When we bring along a guest it gets rather tight. Ours has always been stored inside - that's why it has lasted so long. I used to belong to a Yahoo Award group - but I believe that fizzled out and moved to Facebook. Good luck!

RE: Back burner has yellow flame

OK - thanks guys... I found a brush that would fit. I went in and out, twisting and nothing came out at all. I do believe it is working better than before as long as I keep the flame real low. Still when I turn it up after about 3 to 4 minutes the flame is mostly orange. I'm actually starting to think it has to do with the burner getting hot, since it is perfect at first. The aluminum expanding? The front burner flame gets more orange as time goes on too - but not as bad as the back burner. Thanks for all the help...

RE: Back burner has yellow flame

Take it out and clean it.Thanks! This is the cleanest stove I have ever seen. This is our new-to-us 2004 Roadtrek - and it looks like nobody ever cooked. I did take off the burner to look into the tube - maybe a spider got in there... Looked clean, but I blew it out anyway with the air compressor. Still gets orange-ish yellow after about 3 minutes. Is it possibly a manufacturing fault? What I am wondering is if I could make the air hole in the tube a bit larger with my Dremel. Or would I wreck it entirely?

RE: Back burner has yellow flame

A yellow burner flame means the burner is not getting enough air.Thanks - Yeah - I looked it up on Google and it said to adjust the opening for the air. There is no adjustment on those burners. :(

Back burner has yellow flame

I've got a Suburban 2 burner stove and the back burner doesn't burn clean and blue like the front burner. It starts out OK, but after a few minutes is almost completely orange-ish yellow. Anyone have ideas of what causes that and is there anything I can do to fix it?

RE: Route 6 Through PA

I live in PA but, I've never traveled Route 6. Hopefully someone with experience will post an answer. The best advice I can give you is, contact PA Route 6, they can probably advise you of any possible problems pulling your RV.From that site there is an FAQ section. From there: " Q. Can I take my fifth wheel across the complete route? A. Yes, a fifth wheel or even a tractor trailer should be able to fit under all bridges along the highway." We travel it a lot and yes - tractor trailers do go on it.
