RE: batterys

Needed a size 24F for my car two days ago. Walmart had it for $104 with a 5 year warranty. First 3 years complete exchange and final 2 years prorated. Made by Johnson Controls.

RE: Schwintek must not stop while extending/retracting?

I never heard of that. We've stopped slides midway probably a hundred times or more. I think I would contact your RV manufacturer and ask them.

RE: Spots after removing Diamond Shield

Was the shield installed at the factory or was it installed after you bought the coach? Just curious.

RE: Tow Bar connecting

If both my arms don't lock up, and that happens from time to time, I pull forward and turn to the right and then to the left. Then my wife checks them to make sure they have locked up.

RE: Packing to travel

I put a bungee cord through the coffee maker and that's about it. We put small miscellaneous items in the sink. Have had three panic stops over the years and everything stayed put. A little noisy from the dish cabinet but no damage done.

RE: Broken window

$2-3 for a hide a key. $1-2 for a replacement key. VERY VERY worth it. Any time we get a new coach or vehicle, I always hide a key. Metal Hide-A-Key is worthless. 1. They can fall off. 2. Moisture gets inside them and the key rusts. I put my spare keys in a zip lock bag and Duct tape it to the frame in my engine compartment which isn't locked. Actually Gorilla Tape. I also leave my drivers side window unlocked now due to a similar problem when thieves broke my entrance door window in a storage facility and wrecked the lock.

RE: batterys

I get my 6 volt batteries from Costco and 12 volt batteries from Walmart. They work fine and last a long time.

RE: 09 paint not right

Do a trip to Mexico and get it painted. Several people have done that.

RE: Will regular epoxy hold?

I'd use regular epoxy. If your floor is getting to 300 degrees my thought is that something is wrong.

RE: Good or bad...Falken tires?

Facts It's a Japanese tire. Never heard of it but I like Japanese cars, wonder if their tires are as good as their cars.

RE: Do you wash your roof?

I wash my fiberglass roof a couple times a year with Dawn dish soap. We live in an agriculture area with a lot of dust and if you don't wash off the roof you get mud streaks down the side of the coach.

RE: towing a full size car

I pull a Lexus RX300 that weighs in at 4,020 lb. I think you'll be fine. 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: Recommendations in New England?

You didn't mention when you are planning on going. If it's in the fall beware that lot's of leaf peepers go then and the RV parks are booked up way in advance. Also beware they start shutting down in the fall so call ahead. New England is a very pretty area to visit. We spent about a month up there wandering around. Boston was, let's say, interesting to drive in.

RE: Lug Nut source

That's it! Thanks folks! I would have never figured that search term out. The long story is that mine fell off way down in ole Mexico and my wheel cover went rolling off into a field, unbeknownst to me. A taxi driver (with a fare) saw it happen and stopped and chased it down. Then, still with fare, chased us several miles down the road to return it. And he wanted nothing for his trouble. Wow! Nice guy! Good to hear stories like that.

RE: Mount Rushmore in the Winter

My recommendation? Don't do it. Have you ever camped in subzero weather? Not much fun.

RE: Carefree of Colorado Power sun visor

Mine fell off also in the middle of a trip. It was on the wife's side and I had to duct tape it up for the next 90 miles where it promptly fell down again as I pulled into our campsite. I HATE plastic!!! Bought a 2 1/2" or 3" pipe holder, can't remember which and used wood screws up into the ceiling which had wood at that spot.

RE: Engine replacement

I'm curious how often you changed the oil in that engine.

RE: Considering 2004 Fleetwood Southwind 37 C

Have basically the same RV with 80,000 miles on it. You'll need tires. Check the exhaust manifolds, mine have been repaired twice. Make sure the Actia dashgauge LCD is readable. I'm on my third. Make sure the brake recall has been done. Make sure the Norcold recall has been done. My engine air conditioner compressor went out a few years back. $1,000 You can flat tow the HHR with no problem. I've pulled a 4,000lb toad most of the time. The Allison 1000 transmission came with Dexron iii. You need to switch it to Transynd, about $450 The price sounds pretty good to me. We run coast to coast and that engine/transmission combo is great.

RE: Running rough fleetwood cornado

RV engine repair These guys are excellent and very reasonable, not to mention quick. I was having engine issues while on a trip to Utah and they corrected the problem which was a dirty MAF sensor that was causing poor performance and o2 sensor errors.
