RE: Engine water temp-What is considered high?

What may also be of some concern is that when the engine temperature goes up, the transmission fluid also gets hotter. Best to keep them both lower.

RE: Gel Cell Battery

On my inverter/charger, it had a different setting for the standard lead acid batteries and for the AGM batteries. Make sure that the charger is set for the type of battery that you have. Thanks for the info Ron, I'm learning a lot today, I'll check the setting on my inverter! Here is what it says on my Xantrex inverter: Battery Charging Completely charging wet cell deep-cycle batteries requires the battery voltage to be raised beyond what is known as the gassing point. This is the voltage at which the battery begins to bubble and gas is given off. If charging stops short of this point, sulfate is left on the plates and deterioration of the battery begins. The gassing point will vary with battery temperature. At 77 ?F, the gassing point of a 12-volt battery is about 14.0 volts. AGM and Gel cell batteries must not be charged to their gassing point. In fact, high- voltage charging that gasses these batteries is harmful to them. They typically require a lower bulk charge voltage and a higher float voltage than wet cell batteries. Consult the battery manufacturer for specifications. Freedom Battery Chargers Freedom battery chargers are designed to overcome the limitations of conventional chargers by utilizing three distinct charge stages, each designed for optimal charging of wet, gel cell and AGM deep-cycle batteries.

RE: Lowering Driver's seat

Thanks for all the response. Goes anyone know where I could get something made to go on the pedals? I know I could make something myself but would really like something made to fit on them. I am going to try the idea of the 2 by in front of the pedals. Thanks again for the help A quick search of the internet shows that there are several companies that make pedal extenders and hardware kits to extend the pedals. I think your best bet would be to find a garage you trust and ask them to install the extensions to your specifications. If you have another driver, you may want to go tiwht something adjustable or removable for the other driver.

RE: main slide squeeks

The slide lubricant made for the seals does a good job of protecting the rubber as well as stop the squeaks. You can order it online or pick some up at Camping World or any other RV supply store.

RE: Another oldie ( Not mine )

You see the tow bar on the back? He was figuring the AVERAGE mileage while towing. In other words the fuel mileage from A to B for two vehicles. So if he used 10 gallons of gas to go 60 miles it would be 6 MPG for one vehicle. Since he was towing, then he has to figure the AVERAGE for two vehicles or 12 MPG. It is all in how you do the math. :B

RE: Pricing for Turbo

Is this your turbo? Clicky Naturally you must figure labor but most could be changed out in a day/weekend by the average DIY.

RE: Why did my coach batteries die?

If you have a radio, as well as the CO detectors, you will always have SOME draw from your batteries. This is to keep the channel memory intact and the CO detector functioning. There are other things that may also be causing a power draw such as leaving the Inverter/charger/converter on full time, lights in the basement compartments, mirror heat, etc. Check to make sure that all 12 volt items are turned off and you will probably find something that you left in the on position.

RE: Recall Verification for Used RV

Look for stickers under the hood from whoever took care of the recall. If there are no stickers, than check with the chassis manufacturer with the VIN.

RE: RV service, how often.

You didn't say anything about what has been done with the engine since last December. Has the coach just been sitting or have you exercised the engine during the last 8 months or so? If it has been sitting this whole time, it may be a good idea to check to see if any moisture has accumulated in the crankcase that would necessitate an oil change. If it has been used/exercised during those 8 months then you should be fine for a 4000 mile trip.

RE: Early 90's F53 Trans shift cable

Have you tried taking your cable to a local machine shop to have them repair it?

RE: Rust-oleum paint roll on rv

If the painted surfaces were later wet sanded, compounded, and buff polished, there is no way that you could tell if it was put on with a roller, brush, or spray rig.

RE: How many are using this monitoring system?

I followed the links until I got to the page that listed all of the retailers of this product. I tried 6 or 7 to find out the price and none of them listed this set-up in the search menu. It looks pretty neat but it doesn't seem to cover any overhead obstacles like tree limbs roof overhangs, etc. Clicky

RE: Mobile internet

Straight Talk wireless from Walmart can be bought month to month and can provide unlimited phone 5 and 10 GB data plans. Not sure if they are compatible to your existing phone but getting a compatible phone is not that expensive, especially if you do not mind a used phone to use for two months.

RE: gun laws in New York

Most people with CCW permits carry a firearm because cops are too heavy to carry.

RE: gun laws in New York

I didn't say LOADED did I? bumpy And you didn't say UNLOADED either did you? :B

RE: gun laws in New York

Thats what Im going to Bump. This post has gotten out of hand. Executive is right, Ive been on this site for 4 years, and the same people always want to argue and hijack post. New York has some specific laws about carrying a shotgun as to where it is carried, how it is carried, and in regards to ammo carry for the shotgun. I'm sure with more research you will find your answer. After four years I think you would know that firearm questions are frowned on at this forum. :B

RE: gun laws in New York

doesn't it make more sense to carry a 12 gauge in a RV and avoid lots of issues? bumpy Carrying a LOADED shotgun is not legal in every state and pistol grip shotguns are illegal in some states. There are issues that change in every state and issues that change within a state depending if you are hooked up to shore power as opposed to being on the road.

RE: gun laws in New York

Amazing that Americans need to have a gun to leave the front door of their home no matter where they go. Yes, Americans have FREEDOMS that our Constitution gives us when we used our guns to get away from the tyrannical England. We don't always need to have guns, but we have the freedom to have them if we want to.
