RE: Help With DVD Player

Most DVD players do not have an amplifier so there are no speaker hook-ups for surround sound. You will need to play the DVD through a surround sound amplifier which is where your speakers will be hooked up.

RE: Factory Service

Are you planning on leaving them a blank check? It sort of sounds like you are giving it to them to fix what needs fixed, that YOU know about, and also take care of ANYTHING that THEY deem necessary. It might make better financial sense to trade the coach in on a new one from a local dealer. Just saying....

RE: Quick Fill Fresh Water Tank

Since I usually fill my coach alone, I just watch the manual fill location behind the small upper door. When it starts running out there, the tank is full. Some tanks do have an overflow pipe(NOT your tank drain) that will allow a certain amount of water to run out AFTER you stop filling the water tank. Since I have the upper manual fill, which also acts as a vent for the tank, I just plugged my over flow valve. This has caused no problems after more than four years of travel with the overflow plugged. I would only do this if you have the manual fill location above the tank, behind the small exterior door.

RE: Quick Fill Fresh Water Tank

We really need to know what type of coach you have. They are all different.

RE: Day/night shades

Best option, if the fabric shades are still in usable condition, is to change the cord to a much stronger fishing line. This line will outlast the coach and there is always someone around who can restring it for you. It is not that complicated and it is easier to restring them than to remove, buy, and install a different type of blind, especially if your day/night shades are the black out type. Heavy duty fishing line is very inexpensive and one roll will do all of the blinds in any coach.

RE: Tips on keeping mud daubers at bay!

You can only screen out certain locations like your furnace, refrigerator, and water heater. This will not stop the mud daubers. I find them under the chassis, under the hood, and anywhere else they decide to build a nest. If you see them spray them. If not, just break off the mud nest and wait for the next one to appear.

RE: Deka Batteries ??????

Deka batteries are great and they are made in the USA. East Penn Manufacturing is the company name. All of my AGM's are Deka and are going on four years with no problems at all.

RE: Spare tire class A motorhome

There is a huge difference from 19.5" to 22.5". In addition to the weight is the fact of getting lug nuts loose on 22.5" that take 450-500# torque to loosen and tighten compared to the 125-150# on the 19.5". The W series Workhorse chassis all require 475 ft pounds of torque for either their 19.5 or 22" wheels. Using basic hand tools and a breaker bar extension I can still get all of my lug nuts loose on my Workhorse chassis. If you use a torque multiplier attachment, it is even easier. The wheels are still heavy although any road service still only sends ONE man out to change a tire. Mounting and removing the wheel is somewhat easy. Getting the spare wheel out of and in to the basement compartment is where the wheel weight is an issue.

RE: Bad GFI ?

I guess I did not explain my problem clear enough for some, the "only" receptacle in the motor home that was not working was the one in the bathroom which is up under the corner cabinet near the sink. It is clearly labeled bathroom in the panel box and is the gfci breaker. I put a normal single pole breaker in tonight and the outlet is fine. There are no GFCI breakers for the kitchen area, maybe due to the outlets being up high on the bottom of the upper cabinets. I found the breaker for as low as 25.00 shipped online so will order one up. If your coach is older than 1987, GFI circuit breakers were not required. If you do not have any GFI protected outlets in your kitchen now, and your coach is newer than 1987, than the wiring was probably changed by the previous owner, which may be some of the cause with your current bathroom GFI problem. Outlets high up on a kitchen cabinet has NO bearing on whether they need to be GFI protected.

RE: Bad GFI ?

No green wire? If you do not have another GFI in your coach, then I would guess that this GFI was supposed to protect the kitchen outlets also. Perhaps it was wired wrong at the factory or by a previous owner. It would not be a bad idea to have an electrician check things out. Two white wires and a black does not sound right if there are no green or bare copper ground wires that are also hooked up to the outlet.

RE: Paint Work on Our Dynasty

Great job Mike. When all is said and done, you did a better job yourself and saved a lot of money in the process. Like most maintenance work on our coaches, it is not fun but if you want it done right you just do it..........:B

RE: Can smell mold but can't find it

Go rent an ozone generator then close everything up and let it run for a day or so, until the smell is gone. This will kill any mold and the ozone can get in to cracks that you can't see. Naturally the smell will come back if the leak is still present so this is only helpful if you have found a leak and repaired it completely.

RE: Extended Warranties

For a 2006 coach, a lot of policies have too many exclusions to make them worthwhile. The fine print will kill you. Some will not cover any seals and gaskets after 6 years. Others exclude anything to do with the slideout structure, roof leaks, etc. Belts and hoses are almost always excluded. Some require full maintenance records which very few people will have on a used RV. Just be sure that you understand ALL of the exclusions before you pay the thousands that it will cost. Accept nothing unless it is in writing. Verbal promises are worthless.

RE: Michelin sidewall cracking . Need advice

I've had too many tires on too many vehicles to know that Michelin are not the only ones with sidewall cracking. It can happen to any brand tire in the right circumstances. Tires are made of rubber and rubber degrades over time. The black is added to help prevent the tire from degrading sooner than if the rubber was left the natural off white color. As the tire changes from nice shiny black to dull grey, the ozone protection ingredients are evaporating. It is primarily caused by tires sitting too long and the various ozone prevention additives leeching out. Tires that are used on a regular basis will last longer and tires where the owner has used some of the various sprays, to make them shine, will develop cracks sooner. Tires left exposed to the sun or anywhere there are high concentrations of ozone will suffer the most. tire cracks

RE: Replacing Old TV w/Flatscreen...HELP!!!

The design of your mounting method will depend on the TV. Some have front speakers and some have rear mounted speakers. If you do not plan to hook up your new TV to your existing speaker system, then you need to purchase a TV with front mounted speakers and build a frame to hold the TV with the speaker area open.

RE: Michelin sidewall cracking . Need advice

There is a possibility that your chassis may have been built in 2007 and your tires may have been manufactured as early as 2006. The thing that degrades tires the most is ozone which may or may not have been a problem where your coach was stored. Some electric motors produce ozone and if there were any in the area that may have sped up the sidewall cracking. The only way to tell the age of your tires is with the sidewall date code.

RE: Need new captain chairs

Your pedestals are probably generic. I got rid of my Flexsteel seats because the foam just flattened in a few years. Poor quality materials, etc. I ordered replacements from DiscountVan & RV in California. They are less expensive than Flexsteel and they will custom make the seats with any type of foam you want. Their quality and service is excellent. Four bolts and you can install them on your existing seat bases.
