RE: Replaced air admittance valve, Still stinks.

On your toilet, you have a gasket that seals at the top inside the bowl. This gasket moves every time you flush the toilet and is subject to wear. If your toilet will not hold water for an hour or so, it could be that air/odors are coming directly from your black tank around the upper toilet gasket.

RE: Dogs rideing in RV

We have a pure bred Great Pyrenees and allow her to travel where she is comfortable. Our other Pyr, male, was the same way. Since yours is a mix of a lazy dog(Pyr) and a high energy dog(Border Collie) I would let your dog decide where it is the most comfortable and then move the dog's bed there and see how it does. Our Pyr is well over 100 pounds so a crate is out of the question because of it's size. I'm not sure how big the crate would have to be to comfortably allow a 70 pound dog to ride in your coach. Probably about the size of an RV couch. Drooling comes with the Pyr since it is a "wet mouth" type breed so you may just want to keep plenty of towels in the RV when you travel. It might take several trips for the dog to feel comfortable but remember Border Collies aren't known for wanting to lay still.

RE: Live outlets with inverter

It depends on the size of the inverter. Most coaches have a standard size with options for larger inverters. On my 3.5K inverter, it powers all of my outlets including the microwave. The standard 1.5K does not power the microwave and only half of the coach outlets. A GFI should make no difference in the outlets that are powered since it just looks like another outlet to an inverter circuit.

RE: Why I don't like Thanksgiving

Since we live in Florida and hurricane season does not end until Nov 31st, our coach is always fully fueled and full of fresh water. You must be on the east coast of Florida. Our hurricane season ends on Nov 30 here on the west coast. :? Must be daylight savings time. :B

RE: replacing rv furntiture

Ultraleather material comes in different thicknesses so it is difficult to say about the service life without actually comparing apples to apples. I believe that you can get Ultaleather material in .5mm up to 1.4mm thickness. If you get a quote make sure of the material thickness and where that material is being used. For cost savings they may use the thick material for the wear surfaces and the thinner material on the sides and backs.

RE: Why I don't like Thanksgiving

We have been stuck at home for several months while our dog heals from her surgery. We have had our granddaughter, her husband, and our great-granddaughter in from Colorado for the month of November. My wife loves to put out a big spread for Thanksgiving and for the past several years it has only been the two of us. She was tickled to be able to prepare a full meal for the family. About one hour before everything was ready, we lost power, along with several thousand other people. No storm or anything but a transformer problem at a distribution center. Luckily we keep the coach in our driveway so it was no problem to fire up the generator and the propane stove and cook top. After some shifting of things from the house to the RV we were able to finish off the meal and sit down for a nice family dinner. Since we live in Florida and hurricane season does not end until Nov 31st, our coach is always fully fueled and full of fresh water. This major power outage turned out to be a minor inconvenience and we were able to enjoy a fantastic meal with our loved ones. Obviously even tho we won't be traveling for a few more months, we were thankful that our coach was there to save the day. Just one more great memory with an RV. :B

RE: Abs light

If you have an ohmmeter it is easy to check and replace the ABS sensors. Most have a connector about two feet from the sensor itself. It should read about 1200 ohms between the two contacts once it is unplugged. If you find a bad one, they are fairly easy to replace. You can also try making sure that they are all pushed in completely and then drive it and see if they reset themselves.

RE: water heater not restarting

Also check for dirt and debris and that your igniter is adjusted right.

RE: In Your experiance what are best ...

Liberty Coach and Marathon Coach, are the manufacturer's names. Search either on the internet and you will get to their website.

RE: In Your experiance what are best ...

Liberty, Marathon, and any of the other high end custom Class A manufacturers.

RE: How do I get speakers to work???

Most TV's have an audio output that must be connected to the same amplifier as used by your DVD. Assuming that you have it already hooked up properly, go to the menu portion of your TV set-up and make sure that you have specified an external speaker/amplifier.

RE: Sidewall Problems/"Gassing"/Checking of Paint

With automobiles there are Technical Service Bulletins(TSB's) that alert a dealer or repair shop of any defect that has occurred on a regular basis. The safety issues become a recall and in SOME cases, the TSB's are taken care of by the manufacturer even if the vehicle is out of warranty. These TSB's are available online for anyone to look up on their vehicle. Back in 2005 Allison put a 5 year 200,000 mile warranty on their transmissions but don't expect ANY RV manufacturer to follow suit. They do not have that much faith in their own products. In most cases, once the short warranty period is up, you are on your own.

RE: Sidewall Problems/"Gassing"/Checking of Paint

Azdel and Crane Composites both supplied exterior panels to the RV industry. I am sure that there are others.

RE: If you had to buy again today...

There are other factors that can affect the size. If you have unlimited storage space, then length is not an issue. If you want to park it in your driveway when not in use, then the length may affect your decision. Right now our current coach is the longest that we can legally fit in our driveway and it is plenty big enough for us to travel several months at a time. We have had larger and had smaller coaches and all have their advantages and disadvantages. There is no such thing as one size fits all. The best you can do is go to a large dealer, or an RV show, and look at various floor plans. We have always gone with the smallest coach that would suit ALL OF OUR NEEDS at the time, which may be different than your own needs.

RE: 2003 Itasca Sunrise 32V workhorse

Thanks for that more accurate info tropical36, that's why I think Fords F-53 chassis 2006 and newer was even better by just going with a 5 speed on all F-53 chassis with more HP and torque than the Workhorse without the brake issues.. Now the F-53 has 6 speeds. In 2006 Workhorse also went with the 6 speed Allison transmission with a double overdrive so you got the reliability of the Allison and better fuel mileage. The Allison also has the grade brake feature that automatically downshifts when descending a hill.

RE: Quality control issues-curiosity

The only way the automobile industry improved their quality was by replacing most humans with robots. Since RV's are not built in quantities sufficient to warrant a lot of robots, I think the quality level we have now will be the same or decline more as fewer young people coming in to the job market want to work with their hands. Sort of sad but you see the same thing in the stick housing market.

RE: Noisy front TV

If it still has the original TV instead of the newer flat screens units, it is probably quite heavy and it is subject to movement while in motion. Are you sure that it is the TV that is moving and not the cabinet that it is mounted in? Sometimes the cabinets can get loose and will rub against adjacent cabinets and cause a squeaking noise. I have changed out three TV's in coaches that I have had and I am not sure that there were any "standard" way that they were attached in the cabinet. I doubt if you only had two screws holding the TV. There are probably several more that might have to be accessed from the side, top, or bottom. If there is a cabinet "face" around the screen, it may have to be removed for better access.

RE: 2003 Holiday Rambler Vacationer

The engine is rated for at least 200,000 miles and the Allison transmission probably longer. It is made by Monaco but as with any used RV, it should be thoroughly inspected to make sure that it was maintained properly and that all recalls have been taken care of.

RE: O.K. guys and gals, here, I believe, is a new one...

If it is cold water at the kitchen faucet, it is probably your charcoal filter that is under the kitchen cabinet. If it is just hot water it can be coming from the water heater.

RE: Traffic violation in a Class A

I'm missing your point? The passenger was restrained in the second seat, not the front seat. But the restraint was in use. The statute does not state where you must sit or restrict you from sitting in a back seat. Apparently I'm missing something. :h The point was that the passenger was not sitting in the front seat. She was in the bucket seat behind the passenger seat and probably was not required to have a seat belt as an adult. Seat belt laws
