RE: Security system instead of RV specific system?

Had a system like that from Sam's club. Took it back after a month. Great during the day but night time had some issues. Infrared draws bugs at night so it looks like it is snowing outside. Bugs draw spiders so every couple of days I had to clear off the webs. Caught on video a neighbors car being broken into at 0130 in the morning...all we could tell was that the thief was driving an old light colored Ford Ranger. The only way to get good night coverage is to add outdoor flood lights. There is a time line across the bottom of the screen and when movement is detected it puts a red marker up. Ha...the bugs create red markers all night long so trying to find the break in was very time consuming as I had to review a lot of footage. During the day birds and a ton of other things trigger the markers.

RE: Water Pump switches not working

Other than the latching controller, be sure to verify your fuse is good. Use a meter. Sometimes they LOOK good but have failed....Dennis I've seen that happen a couple times over the years. Pull the fuse out and if possible swap it with another one of equal amperage.

RE: No lp

rfsod48....There are TWO ways of turning off the gas. One is the safety switch which you have checked. The other is an actual valve built into the gas line itself. You must turn that valve on by hand. Have you found this valve yet and if so, did you open it?

RE: Be careful, Don't let this happen to you

I use jack stands every time I change oil and transmission fluid. One time I forgot to remove the jack stands and retracted my levelers. Heard a big bang and the coach didn't go down. So now I know my jack stands work...although now I attach a warning flag to the steering wheel so I remember to pull them. It's the same flag I attach when the TV antenna is up.

RE: gearheads help me out with this please

A bit more information on your motorhome would help. Those symptoms are common on one brand.
ArchHoagland 06/17/15 11:23pm Class A Motorhomes

What brand, year of motorhome? How come you replaced original unit? Who did the install? My Norcold takes about 24 hours to get cold, yours will too.

RE: Weighing Motorhome

I've been calling around and still cannot find a place to weigh it. I am going to take a trip for a few days in the next week. While I am looking for a scale to weigh the corners, can I take the axel weigh and divide by 2 to at least come close? Absolutely. That's how mine is weighed as I've never found a scale to be able to weigh all four corners. I add 5 lb to the recommended weight from the Michelin chart. 10 years so far and all is well.

RE: My Engine replacement odyssey - 1994 HR

RE: ABS light on and left front tire brake very hot

Twere I you I'd buy an IR gun and shoot the brakes and tires every time you stop for a break. I do that...good exercise and gives you a chance to inspect the RV for any other problems that may have popped up. Tire temperatures should all be about equal. One that is a lot hotter than the others may indicate low pressure and needs to be checked.

RE: Selling Motor Home

hire a local attny to set up a closing where the money will be transferred from his trust account to the seller/buyer after the attorney has done due diligence for the sale/purchase. That should only cost about a $1,000.

RE: Selling Motor Home

I saw a $10,000 cashiers check bounce. A wire transfer is good forever.

RE: Need more cooling

RV Pillow vents in all roof top vent openings makes a BIG difference. Cover front windshield a must. I bought van sized windshield sun shades. All good tips that I forgot. Also.....trying to stop the heat on the INSIDE of the glass is pretty much ineffective; you need to stop it on the OUTSIDE to really do much. That includes an outside windshield cover. That's my thought also. I had an exterior windshield cover made at a Auto upholstery shop that snaps on and it reallly helps block out the heat. Another thing you can do during the day is pull the slides in. We were in Las Vagas for a couple days when it was 113 degrees. Pulled the slides in so there was less air to cool.

RE: (Gasoline) fuel injector cleaning

Cleaning company. I haven't used these people but they do have places in the north east. I didn't even know you could clean injectors out of the engine...never thought about it, but it makes sense if you've got them out anyways to go ahead and have them cleaned and checked by a professional. Let us know who you use and how they worked out for you.

RE: Norcold Fire Repair Time

Who is your insurance company? I went through the posts and didn't see their name.

RE: water pump

I'm with Gjac...how do you know it's bad? Last year mine quit working and I thought it was the pump. As billnwoodland said about Monaco the pump is in the wet bay and easy to get to. Got to checking voltages and discovered no power to the pump. Bad fuse.
