RE: Ok to get on roof?

You said you have an aluminum roof. Are you sure? My 2004 Monaco La Palma is basically the same as your HR and my roof is fiberglass. I've been on my roof probably 80 times over the years with no problems. What engine/transmission do you have? If you just bought this RV there are other things you need to know about it. How to make your signature so we can serve you better: 1. Log on and click "My Preferences". 2. On the "My Preferences" page click the middle box and enter your rig info. 3. Scroll to the bottom and click "Submit Changes" 4. Exit and you're done.

RE: DIY film removable from front of MH.

Ivylog...That came out pretty nice. I'll bet you'd pay $150 like rv2go did if you had the chance.

RE: Is a visit to Quartzsite worth our time

You need to go one time to be able to say. "Been there done that " I vote yes worth it. I agree. We stayed there a few times in a campground. I wasn't too impressed with the RV stuff for sale in the Big Tent last year.

RE: Generator Power Question - Might be a silly one

I had a 1980 something class C...Mallard I think...and you had to plug the cord from the generator into a receptacle by the generator. But we need more information about the year, make and model. It's possible the breakers on the generator are open which would cause a no power situation too.

RE: Tradewinds in hospital.

Took my Motorhome in for a smog check last month. $2,000 later I picked it up. Turns out all my rotors were cracked so I had a complete brake job done. I've got 80,000 miles on it now so it was about time. Stops quicker now! So, yes, it's true, misery enjoys company. WHOA, $2,000 for a brake job! I'm in the wrong business. I'm curious what parts/labor hours they put into that job.... Just sounds like an awful lot of $ for a brake job. That was including smog check and rear seals that were leaking, etc.

RE: Vacation Florida

We've stayed at Markham Park a couple times, very nice. Do NOT stay at Twin Lakes Travel Park. The owners are very nice but, unless you speak French, the people that stay there are just plain RUDE.

RE: Oxygen Sensor

Why do you think the O2 sensor is bad? Perhaps it is doing what it is supposed to do...tell you when your air to fuel mixture is bad and polluting the air. I too had O2 sensor Check Engine Light problems and replacing the O2 sensor didn't cure the problem. Cleaning the MAF (Mass Airflow Sensor) corrected the problem. So I'd suggest a $10 can of MAF cleaner might help you out.

RE: GM 8.1 Workhorse O2 Sensors

Thanks everyone for the input. I did misunderstand what the service person was saying, he said that the O2 sensors had tripped the code. I asked them to replace the O2 sensors and clean the MAF as recommended. The dealer is having problems finding the O2 sensors, appears they are on backorder. If the check engine light comes on again, can I reset it by turning off the chassis power or disconnecting the battery? I suspect cleaning the MAF will clear the problem. There are a couple different O2 sensors so I removed one of mine and took it to NAPA to get the correct sensor...about $65 as I remember. I had to buy a special socket to remove the Sensor. I think if I was you I'd run it after they clean the MAF and see if the problem goes away. Yes, removing the battery terminal cable will clear the Check Engine Light.

RE: GM 8.1 Workhorse O2 Sensors

kcgaz...I'd suggest new plugs and wires based on my experience over the past 80,000 miles and 12 years. Another thing to be aware of is the transmission, Allison 1000, came with Dexron iii in it. That needs to be changed every 2 years or 24,000 miles along with the spin-on filter. I suggest switching to Transynd that is the recommended synthetic fluid now.

RE: GM 8.1 Workhorse O2 Sensors

Mine were P0151 and P0131 codes. I noticed kcgaz said code 202 but I thought maybe he was confused. In any case the O2 sensor is doing it's job of reporting a problem with the air/fuel mixture and it's burning.

RE: GM 8.1 Workhorse O2 Sensors

I had the exact same problem with my 2004 8.1 engine. I replaced the sensors myself and the problem continued. I cleaned the MAF and the problem cleared right away and my power increased. So have them clean the Mass Air Flow Sensor.

RE: What do I flat tow?

Check on any vehicle for 4 down towing.

RE: Norcold 1200LRIM won't stay off

Doug mentioned a defective Fluorescent ballast. I had a bad one that caused my garage door opener to fail so I'd check that out like he said. I would also run an extension cord from shore power and plug the refrigerator into that with all the power shut down in the RV.

RE: Norcold 1200LRIM won't stay off

Are you using an inverter?

RE: I got a new CLASS-A - Pictures included!

Obviously you don't own a cat...that RV would be a new target.

RE: Driver side window replacement

I'm curious if you contacted your insurance company.

RE: Sniff test doesn't work

Turn the water on in the sink and listen at each of the pipes. Perhaps you may hear the water running into the gray tank.
