RE: At My Witts End

interesting that they would change out the engine harness first, Did they have data from the control module that it was a load problem or a heat rejection problem or a bad instrument reading. If your gas milage is typical/normal I think Moses lake has pretty good input. Does transmission temperature track that of the engine. If so then instrument bad may be ruled out.

RE: Questions about repairs about to begin

my experience with fibre glass repair was replacing half the cabin on a 35 foot boat. adherence to old fibre glass is tough. chemically it has to be prepped to activate the old fibre glass. a good marine dealer will provide the resin, glass and pretreatment. be sure to buy the high dollar paint 60 buck a quart. any thing less will peel in 6 months

RE: Class A Gasser and Mountain Travel

I down shift and brake to keep the rpm under 4000 while going slow enough to avoid acceleration. We tow a lite truck and have been through many mountain passes with our gasser. Did run out of horsepower up one hill but it was at 11500 elevation pops

RE: Food at Potlucks- Am I the only one?

Sanitation at pot lucks is a minor issue. The problem I got is the folks at the front of the line scarfing up all the good dishes. The back get the left over bread and salsa pops

Define termination of full time rv ing

Looking at some of the faded rvs at the campground in Rockport, it struck me that rv ers put a lot of emphasis on when they jump off into full time camping. But there really is not a defining moment when folks discontinue full timing. I would suggest that when the rv brakes rust up and become inoperable, that would become the defining moment transitioning to the starlite starbrite economy trailer park. pops

RE: Had sleep study last night: calling all auto cpap users!

I am into my third year with 100 cpap usage and love it. A topic not covered is wither you use a service supplier like Linde or buy your machine direct. I used Linde and found them of value for the first 6-9 months, both in proving to the insurance co that usage is complete and to access different styles of masks. The service was really into pushing unneeded supplies billed to the insurance co. and after a year found CPAP.com to order stuff direct at discounted prices. My insurance co pay was generally approximate to the discounted price. To set up an account with cpap all you need is a dr script and pay yourself. I do have a 12 volt battery added to my class A for dedicated service. I forgot the cpap one weekend trip and had a miserable trip

RE: Can you back up with a toad 4 down

SDcampowner has no problems backingup. Trouble is he is backing up a 5th wheel not a toad. Check his postings

RE: cpap machine

Its all about battery management. I installed an additional 12 volt battery for boondocking use. If you are short of house capacity,,turn down the humidifier, eliminate the 12 to 120 to 12 volt conversion, add capacity. If you are not short, life is great.

If any one has have a referral to a repair source of info it would be appreciated. thanks pops

RE: Time to bite the bullet on batteries

Interstate rv batteries are only warrantied for 12 months now. I had one blow up at 33 months creating a real mess. At 6 years you are risking a lot to squeeze out a little more service. Replace them,

RE: battery detonation

Charging maintenance I define as leaving the ac power supply connected to motor home to replenish the watts used by the onboard electronics while in storage

RE: battery detonation

Replacing the batteries I find that interstate is now limiting RV batteries to 12 month warrantees. My failed battery was 33 months old. Plan going forward is to change out after 24 months of use. The charge/discharge limiting number of cycles for a wet cell battery probably supports that. The above several comments are good explanations for detonation of one of a pair of batteries

RE: How Long is Safe for an RV Power Extension Cord

For long distance power 100 feet 10-15 amp, enough for ac or microwave plus various battery chargers, I will use a heavy duty extension #12 cord which is enough on not hot days. The limit I found was the plugs which tended to get hot and soft, Plugs can be upgraded. A hundred foot rated 30 amp cord would be a beast to carry,

battery detonation

It finally happened. After 3o years of managing large electrical distribution systems with very large dc back up battery systems and 45 years of car battery use, I had one explode in the rv yesterday. Detonation was loud enough to where it upset the wife inside the house 100 feet away. one of the two battery, house rack internally exploded spreading plastic and acid. We had just finished a three day trip with utilities at the campground and at the house reconnected for charging maintenance. Every three months, I check levels and adjust with distilled water only. Batteries were two years old and required water only once. I will take both back to interstate battery and ask for a discounted replacement and Interstates recommended test for charge maintainer. The distributor is good folk and will do what's right. I guess the message is batteries do explode and when working around them personnel protection is important, along with ventilation, spark reduction etc. Googling the issue, that explosive force is similar to a stick of dynamite with acid spray as a kicker. stuff happens

RE: Buying gas

Turn about is fair play...Try using a us credit card without the micro chip in Canada and you will find yourself going inside to process each time
