RE: **** foul odor ****

Wolfe10 has good advice. I was going to vote for the autovent under the sink in the bathroom. On my rig, it only has one roof vent and both holding tanks tie into it. If yours is the same this could explain how flushing would affect a vent on the sink drain. As he said, make sure the roof vent is not blocked. As he said, I'd then check the tanks where the pipes connect. I finally solved a similarly frustrating issue and it was a tiny leak around where the built-in tank flush nozzle was attached. Odor found its way up into the coach.

RE: Anyone ever find holding tank vent pipes leaking?

Put a qt of Pine Sol in the gray tank with about 10 gallons of water and then drive the unit. See if you get the Pine sol smell. If so, you have a vent issue with the gray tank. If no Pine sol smell, flush the gray and do the same test with the black tank. This is EXCELLENT advice. Use Pine-Sol to isolate the "offending" tank. As suggested, put some in the grey tank. Didn't even drive around but soon started smelling it. The rig is a 1.5 bath model and the odor has been isolated around the half bath in the middle of the coach. This is right over the tanks and the vent pipe runs up through the back of the half bath. To confirm it was not the autovents, I got down and stuck my head in all the cabinets where a sink is. No pine-sol smell. I actually smell it more just up walking around, even outside of the half bath. SOOO, I am thinking there is a problem with the vent pipe up at the roof and odor is getting between the roof and ceiling. Will investigate further, but I think I am on the trail of it. Thanks for the tip!

Anyone ever find holding tank vent pipes leaking?

First off, if you are inclined to tell me to check the autovents under the sinks, don't bother. They have all been replaced. I've been having trouble eliminating holding tank odor from my half bath. As I said, the autovent under the vanity has been replaced multiple times. I also tried to re-seat/re-seal the toilet a couple of times to no avail. And no, it is not the flush valve. The toilet has no problem holding water in the bowl for days on end. The only other thing I can think of is that perhaps the vent pipes going from the tanks to the roof have a broken connection somewhere. I shot water into the roof vent down into the tank and did detect some moisture on the outside of the vent pipe going down into the holding tank. Thing is, it was not clear if it was coming out of the pipe through bad connections or a bad seal at the roof, as some of the water from the hose was spilling out of the vent. I opened up the wall in the bath and the vent pipe is exposed from tank to roof. I plan to remove the vent cap and put a hose down the vent pipe to make sure any water coming down is INSIDE the vent pipe. That should make it clear if there is a bad pipe connection somewhere. I should know more in a couple of days, but just wondering if anyone has ever found their vent pipes to have bad seals at the elbows and such. It's about the only thing left that could be wrong in my case.

Replace Thedford Aria Deluxe I with Dometic Revolution 320?

Has anyone made this switch? From the footnotes on the Sealand toilet, since the Aria has angled bolts, it appears a Sealand mounting adapter is needed. Curious if anyone has confirmed that is the case and if there are any things to watch out for in that regard. Any other words of wisdom appreciated as well. From what few reviews I saw on the Sealand toilet itself, folks sure seem pleased.

RE: Check engine light 4 days away from vacation

check your fuel cap! Up until a month ago, this suggestion would have resulted in me scratching my head. But recently the check engine light came on and it was emission related and turned out it was the fuel cap not sealing properly! Agree - take it by an auto parts store. Most of all, let us know what you find! If it is the fuel cap you might have to drive it around for a while after you tighten it before the light goes out. It took ours till the next day after driving that evening for the check engine light to go out, after tightening the gas cap. Agree. Mine did not go off immediately either, but eventually it did.

RE: 2004 Monaco Executive

You say new batteries. Are they new since you last used the rig? Maybe they got wired incorrectly?

RE: Replace M/H window awnings?

I recently did my Carefree window awning canopies. Here is my report. If you have a different brand this might not apply. http://www.rv.net/forum/index.cfm/fuseaction/thread/tid/27722917.cfm

The way I read the OP, the problem is that the pump will not operate even though the fuse is fine, so it is not a problem with the tank - and besides he says he is using grey tank only.

RE: RV Convection oven

Yes, they bake just fine. A feature mine has that I like - not sure if all have it - is a mixed mode. The convection cooks at 325, but it also throws in microwave power - either 10% or 30% power. I use it for meats, frozen lasagne and such to speed up cooking and still provide browning unlike all micro. I don't run mine on the inverter. It sounds like it is struggling, so maybe the amperage is not there. I have read of others burning theirs out that way. Probably depends on specs of oven vs inverter.

RE: Slidder Topper suggestions help needed

I agree, you really don't notice the fabric so much as it up high. I will offer another piece of unsolicited advise. If possible, have them install the unit so that the fabric will slope down from the side of the rig. Many get installed so the fabric is horizontal when the slide is extended and that allows water to pool on top of the topper. There is also a model that has some kind of peaking mechanism for the same reason - not sure how much extra that costs.

RE: Jeeps - Patriot vs Liberty vs Compass vs Cherokee

You don't say whether you are looking at new or used Jeep. If used, be aware of this ongoing N23 recall that many of us are battling right now. http://www.irv2.com/forums/f85/jeep-gc-recall-done-now-xfer-case-wont-shift-into-neutral-186935.html

RE: Slide gasket reattachment

tk, did you replace the seals yourself or have it done? Do you know the method and material that was used? I did it myself. I mainly just used my fingers to seat the new seals, but on a couple of sides there was not enough room for the seal AND my fingers so I used tools there to press the seal into place. Sorry, I don't remember exactly what I used - a wood chisel, maybe. I just started at the bottom of one side of the slide and worked my way around. To better conform in the corners, Monaco had cut the blade, overlapped the edges and glued them together. I used Super Glue Gel for that. To make sure I got the right thing, I ordered directly from Monaco, but the part for mine was ED50470 - Deal, Double Bulb w/2" Blade. Your rig may take something different.
