RE: Surviving The 2015 SC Flood

Also look on the outside to see that the weep slots are clear on your windows. These slots allow water to drain from the window track so that it does not overflow and come inside.

RE: New class A owner (Electrical cord)

The larger the wire, the more current carrying capacity, and the longer the extension cord can be. A 12 gauge wire extension cord may be fine for 50 feet where a 16 gauge cord, which is a very common light duty extension cord around the house, should not be used at all. A 14 gauge extension cord, should be limited to 25 feet maximum. The wire size of the cord will be marked on the package as you buy it or will be stamped/embossed on the side of the wire. It may be something like this: 12 AWG, 14 AWG, 16 AWG. AWG means American Wire Gauge. In any case, you should not try to use more than 15 amps total when you are hooked up to a standard 120 volt outlet. This means that you cannot use the AC and the microwave at the same time, etc.

RE: Actia Instrument Repair...

Ultra RV has a great reputation so I guess you do have to pay a little more for peace of mind. There are less expensive places out there, and some advertise on eBay, but for the few extra bucks, I would go with the experts at Ultra.

RE: UPDATE: General DP Question (air leak in fuel line)

I'm guessing that you may have been close to an engine fire and the "hot" smell that you experienced was from diesel spraying on to some hot engine components.

RE: no power to map light

Since the map lights might turn on with the headlight dimming switch, I would look under your dash, to the left of your steering column, for the fuse box. That is where you will find the fuse.

You could go with a Winegard Carryout for a self install less than 1/2 price of the Trav'ler. Plus it's light weight to get on the roof. I picked up a used Winegard Pathway (Dish) w/stand and cable ($300) for our Phaeton when in trees and as the sole Satellite antenna for our B+. Trying to figure out a roof mount rather than the Winegard "legs" for the B+ so I can pull it off when stored and switch over to the Phaeton. We have had a Trav'ler for Dish for just over 5 years on our Phaeton and just recently had to change the LNB ($45) and sheathed cable assembly ($59). The carryout Winegard is for SD only for DirecTV, which the OP has.

RE: air bags for gassers

I have four corner air bags on my Monaco Workhorse chassis. When we travel out West, especially in the Great Plains area, high winds are more of the norm than the exception. When we are going to be in high wind areas, I pump up the air bags to about 80 psi and the coach is very stable, even in winds that blow other coaches around. We also tow a Chevy HHR which I think also helps to stabilize things. I have a push button on my dash that allows me to inflate or deflate my air bags and I just inflate them to a comfortable level to handle any crosswind. Sometimes in the early morning, the wind is not too bad so I drop the pressure down to maybe 30 psi to have a smoother ride. As we found out after traveling in the Great Plains, you either adapt or you stay put. We prefer to continue our travels and just deal with the winds.

RE: Cleaning under the RV

ATF is also used in power steering systems, and you know how many rubber hoses are in that system. There is a difference between heater hose rubber and power steering system rubber. The heater hoses, suspension rubber pieces, tires, etc were not designed to be in contact with petroleum products. Power steering hoses are. I would use Simple Green Extreme since any residue left will not hurt any of the aluminum parts on your coach. Regular Simple Green can hurt aluminum parts if not rinsed off completely.

I have the Winegard Traveler SK-3005 automatic roof top dish on my coach. If you tell the RV park where your dish is mounted on your RV, 90% of the time you will have no problem with reception. The rain hitting the dish problem is the same as it is with your dish at your stick built home. Usually not much of an issue. The dish is something that you can install yourself. The only hard part is getting it up on the roof. The dish itself is exactly the same size as the dish that you have on your stick house. There are connections on the dish to run coax to four different TV's from the antenna and you can watch different channels if you take two boxes with you. You probably already have a roof penetration point on the coach that will allow you to fish the coax down from the roof. The Winegard Traveler and antenna has HD capability so you will get more channels than the SD dishes with your DirecTV account. Some channels are only broadcast in HD and if you want to watch them, you have to have an HD Dish. We use our crank up antenna for the local network channels and have no problem finding them with our King Jack antenna. Most of these are broadcast in HD and the King antenna has the amplifier built in to the antenna.

RE: Winnabago Vista Roof noise

What about your crank up TV antenna? They can rattle in the wind.

RE: clear coat flaking off roof edge panels

Polishing compound is a much finer grit than rubbing compound. It will remove a lot less material and leave the surface ready for wax. If you use rubbing compound, you need to use polishing compound afterwards.

RE: Cleaning under the RV

Any of the engine degreasers should work well altho it might not be easy to spray underneath the coach without getting it all over yourself. Wear goggles and cover yourself. Also you may want to be careful where you do it so that the petroleum residue does not kill the grass or get in to the storm drain system.

RE: clear coat flaking off roof edge panels

When i tried a repair I attempted to feather the egde of the clear coat with fine sand paper. The color coat was so thin when it was "touched" it was gone. Clear coat cannot be cut in or patched but I figured at the top and roof of the coach it would not be noticeable. Not sure about other products, but if you have this condition on a Newmar motor home I think you will need a professional fix. You are correct. If the paint is so thin on the Newmar coach that to touch it removes the color coat than polishing compound will certainly remove the color coat of paint. If the factory put it on that thin, just rubbing it to put on wax may remove what little is left in which case a repaint is the best solution.

RE: Lumbar support

I ordered custom made seats for my coach after yanking out the uncomfortable Flexsteel junk. If you go to a place that makes captains chairs, you can order the type of foam, etc, to make the seat just what you need for a comfortable ride. I eventually had spinal fusion surgery and now the seats are even more comfortable.

RE: clear coat flaking off roof edge panels

The clear coat that is peeling can be scraped off and then you can feather the edges with fine wet/dry sandpaper to blend everything smooth. The problem is that you don't know when or if the rest of it will start peeling in a week, month, or never. Once the loose clear is removed, you can try using a polishing(not rubbing) compound followed by a good wax. This may bring back some of the gloss to the surface.

RE: My toad gets 133 MPG while towing

My toad does not burn any fuel when it is being towed. Yours must have a leaky fuel tank. :B

You will need a pure sine wave inverter to solve your problem. Even many phone chargers will not work well on modified sine wave inverters. You can buy 12 volt inexpensive pure sine wave inverters on Amazon, or other places, and hook them to your equipment instead of the UPS.
