RE: Temperature Monitor

We are planning a two month trip to the southwest with our two rescued greyhounds. We leave out the first of September. I am in a panic over losing power in our motor home. We bought a surge protector that is pretty good at resetting the power, but I don't trust that it will work in every instance. I started looking for products to send us an alert if the temperature starts going up in the motor home. So far the only product that looks like it will work best is the Temp Stick. Anyone have experience with it or can recommend other products? I want something that does not rely on electricity. This product works great, I have it installed and no more worries about my pet when the power goes out. https://rvautomations.com/automatic-generator-start-system/ What happens if power is working, but your air conditioning stopped working. I guess if you had 2 separate units in an RV it would work. Yes I have 2 a/c units so the lost of 2 at the same time would be very very rare, also the auto start system in the link is easy to wire up, no need for difficult setup for a/c, temps, etc, just a easy start for gen when power goes out, its also cheap to buy..

RE: need tow company to move classA: greneda,MS to atlanta,GA

The cost for a tow on a burnt out RV that distance will cost 5 times more than its worth, why not buy locally instead of 4 states away, makes no since unless the RV was drivable. This is now the 2nd RV the OPer has wasted money on for homless Vets, I hope its not donation money he is wasting..

RE: Generator finally repaired after seven months

I went down to our local Onan/Cummins shop here in Vegas to buy some parts for my Onan gen and while waiting at counter ask the parts/service guy does your shop repair/service the Onan gen in my motorhome and he said NO we don't work on the Onan gen in motorhomes.. Not sure if he was having a bad day or what but thought that was strange..

RE: 22.5 vs 19.5 tires

Most motorhomes have room for a full 19.5 spare tire and rim, that helps with a flat issue without waiting all day for a tow service.

RE: Sorry, gotta have TV and recliners

I hate to say it but at times it got boring. We missed our LazyBoy recliners and TV at home. We found the dinette uncomfortable and a total waste of space. So I ripped the dinette out and installed two slim wall-hugger recliners from Wayfair. That took 4 hours. And gave the parts to a friend with a rickety dinette. The cheapo recliners turned out to be well made and very comfortable. Adding a 24" long x 12" drink table between the recliners fit with space left over. This arrangement does not interfere with the jack sofa or swiveling cab seats so we can sit 5 guests. Hung a 20" flat screen from the upper cabinet on the opposite wall which doesn't cover up much of the window. At 6 feet away it looks like a big screen. We now have the most comfortable TV room ever. To each their own but camping/RVing to me is being outside doing things, site seeing, boating, etc, sitting inside RV just to watch a big screen TV seems silly, might as well stay home..

RE: Class A prices dropping??

I've been keeping track of the value of my motorhome for fun the past few years. In the last 6 months (in particular), the prices have been dropping HARD. Anyone else noticing this? I'm not interested in selling, but like to keep a pulse on the value. No need for replies telling me how an Rv is a depreciating asset, I already know that... Just surprised at the very rapid drop the past 6 months. Yours being a 2012, it has just passed the 5 year mark - that's a big deal with the banks. The next big hit will be at the 10 year mark. Most people don't pay cash, so when the banks get a little shy the value drops quickly. Acutely it passed the 6 year mark, some banks don't loan on autos older than 7 years and that's why NADA and KBB price drops a big chunk around 7 years old, unless its a popular model like my 04 Jeep Rubicon in perfect condition with low miles, the price is now going up.:B

RE: Camping World online...........Seriously?

Not sticking up for CW but 11 days is not that bad, I have had other places take longer than 11 days, I just ordered a new prop for my boat on Amazon and my order will take up to 9 days, so even Amazon can be slow at certain orders. Yes I am even a prime member and still have to wait 9 days on this order.

RE: Interesting Read...

If only that tax (ethanol) would be paid only by those that believe in the scam. You are welcome to send a check to the farmer of your choice. You don't have to buy ethanol gasoline if you don't want to. How does one buy fuel without ethanol, all the pumps here in Vegas have mandatory ethanol requirements as well many other cities and states.

RE: I-95 is the “middle of nowhere”?

I am sure Good Sam would love everyone to pay there prieums and change there own tires. Well that's me, I can change my 19.5 motorhome tire when needed, I use tow service for when its a mechanical breakdown, I think I could do the flat change in about a hour and be down the road, no reason to wait hours or the next day for just a flat that many have.

RE: I-95 is the “middle of nowhere”?

Yesterday, i called GSRA. I gave my location as I-95, South Carolina, southbound at mile marker 51. I had a flat tire with a good spare. The agent told me this was insufficient information to locate me, as she was in Texas, and did not know where that was, and asked what city I was close to.i replied that I did not know,only that I could see the mile marker. After 2 hours, the agent called me back and said she could not find a provider as I was in the “middle of nowhere” and would I like her to contact the highway patrol, maybe they could help me. Twenty minutes later the South Carolina state police had a wrecker on the scene. Why am I paying Good Sam, if my best option is to call the state police? The agent seemed to be poorly trained, and, obviously did not have the tools at her disposal to help me. I noticed you have a truck and a 5th wheel and have a complete spare for truck or 5th wheel and not able to replace the spare yourself, cant be that hard.

RE: New Motor Home vs Used

I bought my 08 Bounder used when it was only 5 years old very low miles and about $10,000 in after market upgrades and paid almost half what a new one was and no issues as of yet, sometimes used is OK than other times its not.. Even new ones have issues, just search the forum and see..

RE: Generator Auto Start Systems, Where to Buy

Well I got the device and installed it and works just as they say it does, easy hookup and smaller than it looks in the pic. https://www.rvupgradestore.com/ShorePower-Guard-Emergency-Generator-Auto-Start-p/spg-gaslp.htm

RE: Rusty 2017 Newmar Mountain Aire Don't let this happen to you

Dear fellow RV'ers, here is a link to the pictures from underneath our brand new Mountain Air. Please note most of these shots were taken by the dealer prior to us taking delivery ! https://imgur.com/a/7InJw Thank you, Paul & Kim. I do not know how much Newmar has to do with how a coach is treated or used after sale. Your pictures show mostly chassis parts that are rusted. It looks like the rust is mostly surface rust, and not a safety issue. If this were my problem, I would spray the whole chassis with THIS Then keep an eye on it. see more rust, spray it again. This stuff works well applied with a small garden pump up sprayer. BINGO I was going to say the same thing, might as well treat the rust now cause rust never sleeps, don't wait months or years or for the dealer that wont come thru, start fixing it today or else..

RE: Rusty 2017 Newmar Mountain Aire Don't let this happen to you

{ The great saddening deal of rust in the suspension and steering components brings questions of safety } Your pics did not load so cant see your issues, also you said rust in these areas sounds like the chassis maker is at fault, what chassis does it have..
