RE: Follow up from Meemaw and Pop pop?

We bought our 2003 Mountain Aire from Camping World of Atlanta -Woodstock. They were wonderful to deal with. Anything we could find wrong during the PDI was corrected immediately. The only thing they could not fix right away was a leveling jack that would not retract properly. They didn't have a jack to replace it with. They promised to purchase the jack and ship it to me. Then they arranged for the Camping World near my home to install it. They did everything they promised in a timely manner. I was completely satisfied with the entire purchase process. Having said all of this, I'd like to point out that some other issues showed up since the purchase that I have taken care at my expense. I don't fault Camping World for these issues. That is just part of owning an older used coach. I only wrote this reply to illustrate that not all dealings with Camping World are bad. We need to take some responsibility for the outcome of any transaction of this sort. If we do the proper research and check out the rigs carefully and thoroughly, the outcome should be predictable.

RE: Sears & Roebuck Alert

Everyone feels that the internet took Sears and Other retailers down. Actually I think it's the management that killed them. When I went to Sears today, my wife found the jeans she wanted with no help from a sales person. We had to look all over the sales floor ourselves until we found them. Then we stood in line at the only checkout that was manned for 30 minutes just to pay for the items. This same shopping experience would have taken less than twenty minutes on line. When you make the process of purchasing your merchandise more difficult, who wouldn't look for a better shopping experience. It seems to me that the last service you would want to cut back would be the means of paying for your purchases. Just my 2 cents.

RE: Stuck clear sewer fitting

I would go to Harbor Freight and buy a strap wrench. That should remove it easily.

RE: Norcold 121 Series Condenser Fan Noise

I just bought these fans with thermostat they seem to be working well. They just a bit louder than the originals, but not objectionable. I bought a furniture dolly from harbor freight and built a platform on it to make it the same height as the bottom of the fridge. Then disconnected everything, removed the screws front and back, and pushed from the back through tha rear access door. It was't as bad as I thought it would be. Hope this helps

RE: Packing to travel

One of the advantages to traveling in an RV is not having to unpack and repack each time you leave one destination for the next. Most things in the RV will ride just fine if you place some towels around fragile items. Things that can fall over in cabinets or medicine cabinets need to be laid down or packed tightly with other objects so they can't move. Dishes should be separated with foam sheets pots and pans should have towels around them to keep them from rattling. I'm sure others will chime in with other tips. Relax and enjoy the RV lifestyle.

2003 mountain Aire air ride dump valve location

Does anyone have any idea where the air ride dump valves are located on a 2003 Mountain Aire pusher with a Spartan chassis? I believe mine are leaking. The air bags go flat about 10 minutes after shutting down the engine. Both tank air gauges maintain pressure for days. Any help would be appreciated.

RE: Thetford Aria electric toilet won't hold water in the bowl.

OP here. Well, I finally got around to replacing the motor assembly. It wasn't too bad of a job. It took me about 2 hours start to finish. But now the bowl holds water as it should and the flush cycle works perfectly. Thanks to all who replied to my post. And a special thank you to dougrainer. Your advice was right on target.

RE: Thetford Aria electric toilet won't hold water in the bowl.

Thanks for the fast replies. I will try cleaning the seal this afternoon. If that doesn't solve the problem, I'll order the mechanism and change that out. What will take Doug less than an hour will probably take me all day. I have no experience with these toilets. But I am willing to tackle almost anything related to my rv. I don't know how long it has been since the seal was replaced if ever. We just bought this rv a month ago. Due to a leveling jack issue, we haven't been camping with it yet. Hopefully that problem will be correct tomorrow. Thanks again for you advice. Bill

Thetford Aria electric toilet won't hold water in the bowl.

Has anyone had experience with the Thetford Aria toilet not holding water in the bowl. Is it worth trying to fix or should I just spend a couple of hundred dollars and replace it with a foot flush unit.

RE: Norcold frig will not run on propane

Found the problem. A large piece of rust had fallen down and shorted out the igniter. Once I cleaned that out, it worked fine. The flame looks perfect. Thanks for all of the replies. Bill

Norcold frig will not run on propane

My Norcold 1200LRIM frig will switch to propane just fine. However, when it shuts down the burner after reaching temperature, it will not relight and gives a " no flame " fault. Anybody experienced this and what did you find to be the cause? It works fine on AC. Thanks for any suggestions you may have. Bill

RE: myrtle beach campgrounds

We like Lakewood Campground. It seems roomier than the others. It is quieter and has all of the amenities we need. We spend the entire month of October every year. Not as hot or as crowded then. I agree with the previous poster. I would not go anywhere near Myrtle Beach in the summer. Bill

Need a little help!

I recently bought a 2003 Newmar Mountain Aire 4097. I can't find a way to dump the fresh water tank except turning on the pump and opening the outside shower valves. Is there a gravity dump valve for the fresh water tank? If so, where would I find it. Also, I have read that I should open the air tank drains to expel any water they may hold. Where are the air tanks located and are these valves reachable without crawling under the coach? Thanks for any help you can provide. Bill

RE: electrically operated toilet experience.

Thanks for the replies, everyone. My toilet is a Thetford. It doesn't seem to be holding water in the bowl very long. Other than that, it seems to be working fine. I just have no experience with them. Thanks again for the input. I now have a little more confidence that it won't let me down. Bill

electrically operated toilet experience.

Has anyone had experience with an electrically operated toilet? Our new to us 2003 Mountain Aire has one. I had never seen one before. It seems like a solution to a problem that doesn't exist. How is this an improvement to the old foot flush toilet that I had in my fifth wheel? Are these things reliable? Am I looking at problems down the road? Are they supposed to hold water above the flush valve? If so, is there a replaceable seal? How much trouble is it to replace this seal? So many question about a solution to a problem that I didn't know I had. Thanks for you experience. Bill
