RE: 3M's Paint Defender

Streaks coming down from the roof are caused by dirt and debris that settles on the roof as it sits, just like the stuff that settles on the roof of your car if it sits outside. There are many coatings that you can put on your roof, but NONE of them will prevent dirt for accumulating on your roof and causing streaks when it rains. The front cap on my coach is fiberglass and it is painted and the heavy gauge aluminum roof is also painted. I keep them both waxed, but I still will get streaks from the accumulated debris and rain. They do make an RV gutter that can be used to prevent water from draining down the sides or front of your coach and installing the gutter is not that difficult.

RE: Timing the Purchase for a last-year's model

Some dealers are a little more willing to discount further between Christmas and New Years when their sales lots are almost vacant and they are looking to make their end of year sales goals. Paying cash is also a proven tool to help get the best price. As suggested above, I would guess that the dealer will want some type of address for the registration/tag. This is something you want to establish before you try to close the sale on an RV.

RE: water filter

I use the screw on hose type of filter that you can order online or find at Camping World. This filters the water before it gets in to the coach. Then, for water we use for cooking, drinking, and for the dog, we use the large filter that is under the sink. This seems to work fine no matter where we are in the country.

RE: Rodents!

At many hunting supply stores you can order urine from various predators that your local rodents don't like. This may be fox, coyote, or whatever is around your area. A few light sprays around the wheels of your coach will keep the rodents away for months. The urine is not very expensive, not harmful to any animals, and it beats dealing with a trap. It only takes a little bit to spread the odor around day and night so that the mice/rats/squirrels will go elsewhere.

RE: New Ford F-53 Brake Fluid

As with most things.....you can order it online, in an quantity, and have it delivered to your house. When on the road, you can order online at NAPA, and many other auto parts stores and have it delivered to a store where you plan to be next week. I would guess that any Ford dealer that sells and services their medium trucks would have it in stock.

RE: Should I wax the fiberglass roof?

Use the same wash/wax liquid(Blue Coral, Turtle Wax, Etc) that you use to wash the sides of the coach. That way it gets some UV protection that Zep #3 floor wax DOES NOT provide. You need the UV protection for your fiberglass and paint so use an exterior product that has it.

RE: Big car, big cigar and no gas.

All it takes is developing a budget and sticking to it. If you need more money for gas, then you can off set that money by staying at lower priced state parks or traveling less.

RE: Prepping RV roof for caulking

You need a solvent like denatured alcohol or acetone.

RE: jack antenna no lights on antenna

The 12 volts from your antenna booster is not making it up to the Jack antenna. It could be that it is turned off at your entertainment center switching box.

RE: Gas leak on Generator

It looks like the fuel filter is leaking and it could be that you just need some thread sealer on it. Might be time to change it while you are at it.

RE: failed outlet

I agree, check the circuit breakers on the inverter first. Some manufacturers did use the outlets where they just pushed the bare wire in to the back of the outlet, instead of stripping the wire, wrapping it around the terminal, and tightening the screw. This type of outlet connection cannot handle a high amp load and they have been known to fail.

RE: How close is too close

Why continue to worry about it? Rerouting your brake lines is not that difficult. It is something you can do yourself if you are at all handy. Check the size of your brake lines and you can buy just the steel tubing at any NAPA store, along with the couplers. Then you need to buy a DOUBLE flaring tool, which can run from about $20 on up, depending if it is made in China or in a decent country. DO NOT use a standard plumbing single flaring tool. Once you use a tubing cutter to cut the brake lines, then you can add additional tubing to route the brake lines away from any heat source. Once you have everything rerouted and securely fastened, you will need to bleed your brakes and enjoy a permanent solution to your problem. Naturally any competent garage can do the same thing if you do not want to do the work.

RE: Toy Hauler Used for Toad

I don't know how old that you want to go but the Monaco Safari Simba had diesel coaches with a hydraulic rear lift with a 3300 pound capacity. Options included THREE queen sized beds with two of them bunk style back in the garage. Here is a brochure and I believe these were made up until 2010. Safari Simba toy hauler

RE: fighting the steering

Get your coach weighed. Shift your load if needed to load your front axle to close to the maximum weight. Once you have shifted your load, if needed, adjust your tire pressure and then, while the coach is loaded, have your alignment checked. Try to find a TRUCK alignment shop that can check your 4 wheel alignment to insure that your rear axle is tracking straight down the road.

RE: Sewer solution

The reason I bought it was on my MH I have a issue using the normal sewer hose as it exits my drain too low causing many times sewage needing to run uphill. On most coaches, the sewer drain on the coach will rotate 90 degrees and instead of dumping straight out the bottom, you can hook up your hose and drain out the side with the basement door open. This may eliminate the problem with your sewer bend being so low with the bottom drain.

RE: 2004 Fleetwood Flair 8.1 engine fan noise

You may not throw any engine codes but if your AF ratio is not at 14.7, after the engine has reached operating temperature and you are at a normal level cruise, you just may be running a little too rich. Besides impacting your fuel mileage some, it may also cause your plugs to foul sooner and may eventually affect your catalytic converter. This is an easy thing to check with any scan tool rather than to guess as to what is happening with your engine.

RE: New AC pricing...

If that is the installed price, that is not too bad. I know it is a shock to your wallet but here is a website with the units listed: Penguin II There are other 15,000 BTU AC units that are cheaper.

RE: water pump help (fresh water)

Make sure that your faucets are all clear of debris by unscrewing the screen at the outlet of each faucet. Check to see that your fill valve is in the right position for the water pump instead of shore water from a hose.

RE: Blowout, bad and good luck

In my case when I backed off the throttle and it never moved and stayed straight. I don't see how flooring it would have done anything. Good for you. In the OP's case, his vehicle did not stay straight and he drifted a few feet before he got things back in his lane and under control. He did not crash so that is a good thing. Giving it gas is an instinctive move that has proven to work best for me. Do what you think will work best for you.
