RE: Our new to us Country Coach

Congrats, it's been a long search but it appears like it was worth the effort. Lou 05 Travel Supreme Envoy

RE: Tow Dolly

When we had a dolly, I did the same as ferndaleflyer and mounted a 2" hitch on my riding mower. Lou 05 Travel Supreme Envoy

RE: dives slide

Fred, On a Travel Supreme I would first spray silicon or a light oil on the exterior slide rollers. You can see them with the slides extended by looking up where the structural slide supports go into the coach body. Also check to ensure the rollers under the slide on the inside are free. You can feel them under the slide from the inside when the slide is retracted. Another item to check would be to ensure the slide motor mounting bolts are all secure. If it still needs a push there is an adjustment you can make to the motor controller. Each slide on a Travel Supreme uses a motor controller which provides power and polarity (inward/outward travel) to the DC slide motor. The controllers are usually located in the basement compartment forward of the driver's side front tire. They are marked kinda funky, DS means Door Side (NOT Driver's Side) and ODS means Opposing Door Side, so be sure you adjust the correct one. The controllers monitor motor current so when the slide reaches it's end of travel (either fully extended or retracted) and the motor is mechanically stopped (locked rotor condition), the controller senses the increase in current and de-energizes the motor before any damage occurs or the fuses blow. You can adjust the trip value using the potentiometer on the controller. There are two adjustment (extension and retraction) so pay attention to what you are tweaking. Also, it usually doesn't take much, so make small adjustments (a couple of degrees at a time) and then try the slide. If you need to adjust it so much that you are blowing the fuse, either the controller has a problem or the slide is binding. All the controllers are the same so you can always swap one out to isolate the cause, but I think lube or adjustment will be all you need to do. Good luck and feel free to PM me if you have any questions. Lou 05 Travel Supreme Envoy

RE: Very Scary Tow Car Breakaway

Although an additional means to secure the baseplate would help (I believe some of the Blue Ox baseplates are provided with an addition cable to wrap around the frame), the load on the cables would not be all that great since both vehicles would be traveling at approx. the same speed. I see the biggest advantage of the safety cables/chains being physical attached to the frames on both vehicles is that it is independent from the normal attachment hardware. Then again, I worked as an engineer at a nuc power plant for 31+ years, so redundancy and independent safety systems are locked into my head forever. :) Lou 05 Travel Supreme Envoy

RE: Very Scary Tow Car Breakaway

In addition to periodically checking that the baseplate bolts are secure (as identified in the instructions), it is also important to ensure the safety chains/cables are attached to the frame of the car. Just walking around I've seen many installations where the safety cables are attached to the baseplate assembly. Lou 05 Travel Supreme Envoy

RE: Campground Question

Bring a car next time..........only kidding. :) C'mon folks, we're talking a CG parking spot here, life is too short to sweat the small stuff. Personally it wouldn't bother me, but I know several people that would have a similar reaction to the OP. If it is real a concern to you, I agree with the other posters to provide comments in rvparksreview.com, but be sure to provide all the facts. Otherwise, consider it a lesson learned and remember to tell the CG when you leave for the day. Lou 05 Travel Supreme Envoy

RE: Engine Monitior

I also purchased mine from RVUpgrade.com (same a DSDP Don). Also note that you will need to determine the proper connector before buying. Lou 05 Travel Supreme Envoy

RE: A note of gratatude to my RV.net friends

We should come up with a sticker, window decal or something that has rv.net logo (hint hint Good Sam Owners of this forum) and our forum name on it so people can see it. That way when camping and if we see that then the invitation is there for other rv.net people to chat and get to know each other! Something like this: http://i168.photobucket.com/albums/u171/stugpanzer/Forum%20Photos/rvnet_graphic_zps28dac569.jpg They already have something. If you click onto "My Forums" and look in the section labeled "Member Card" you can print one with the logo and your name with a few stats. Lou 05 Travel Supreme Envoy

RE: Ez pass locations

Mine works well in the center of the windshield very low near the dash. This is about the same height as the top of the windshield in my car and truck. Lou 05 Travel Supreme Envoy

RE: Up date on problem posted a couple weeks ago...

Provided that is all they did I would post a polite comment questioning the charge in the Dear Marcus section here: Camping World Service and Installation Lou 05 Travel Supreme Envoy

RE: wont move when in gear

I don't have a dash gauge either, but use this with my PC: SilverLeaf VMSpc It will provide boost pressure plus a whole lot more. Lou 05 Travel Supreme Envoy

RE: A used Newell, what do you think?

I always liked the mid door design because it keeps the cabin entrance in the middle of the awning and out of the weather. I don't care too much about the loss of some basement storage, but do see a down side in that the passenger side slide is shorter. I guess that's why there are so many floor options, different strokes for different folks. Lou 05 Travel Supreme Envoy

RE: Power Boost chip for 300 HP Cummins

In addition to xmission capacity remember that higher hp will generate more heat, so before you bump up the hp too much be sure your cooling system can dissipate the load. Lou 05 Travel Supreme Envoy

RE: wont move when in gear

Do you have a turbo pressure gauge? A leak in the intake hoses or CAC would reduced boost resulting in a significant loss of power. Lou 05 Travel Supreme Envoy

RE: Kitchen Faucet

Even a compliment to Camping World gets negative responses. Revump, I'm glad to hear you had good service at a reasonable price. Thanks for posting. Lou 05 Travel Supreme Envoy
