RE: Trip report

Well...what kind of a trip was that!! No problems? That's no fun. We're in the last two days of a 3 week trip, about 2,500 miles with no problems yet. Almost unheard of for me.

RE: Removing inside engine cover on a class A motor home

Run your fingers around the edge of the doghouse cover and you should find some screws. You could also use a magnet. I'd be curious to know how pine cones got to the top of the engine and how they saw them without removing the doghouse. Let us know what you find.

RE: Switching Refrigerator to domestic style

Came home and took the Norcold out. There was wallpaper behind the old Norcold that had came off the wall and was falling down on the flue. Glad it's gone. The new one is on order from home depot and it's a 12 cubic foot one. Anybody need any parts from my Norcold N611? I wonder if the wallpaper was creating cooling problems with your Norcold.

RE: Crystal Fusion

Had a windshield replaced about 9 years ago..rates stayed the same. That stuff sounds like snake oil to me too. Who is the dealer?

Remco Towing We need more information. Rear wheel drive...not towable, needs a dolly. 4 wheel drive standard 5 speed transmission is towable. Go to the Remco site and check it out.

RE: Possible Delamination - run away, run away!

Assume you buy it and next year you have to sell it for whatever reason. Do you think you'll be able to sell it with that bulge? If it's bulging there where else will it start to bulge a year from now? Get a written guarantee from the dealer that they will correct any problems down the road OR, as Dennis said, get a heck of a deal on the coach. The dealer knows that's a problem and will be glad to unload it.

RE: oder in new RV

Any signs of water leaking anywhere down there? Dampness anywhere? You may have to open the door and put a fan blowing in there for a few days to dry it out completely. Had a similar problem in my back bathroom and discovered my rear camera had a leak and water was getting under the cabinet. Had to run a fan several days to get it all dried out.

RE: Do you let any maintenance items go longer than recommended?

Usually I keep current on oil and transmission fluid/filters. I'm curious why you are switching from Toyo tires to Michelian tires.

RE: Headed west

They have really good ice cream at Wall Drug. Depending on what route you take you may see a sign or two for it. Good ice cream at Mt Rushmore too!! Iowa 80 Truck stop is one of the largest in the world...kinda fun for a break.

RE: Gray tanks question

I suspect you have one gray tank and one black tank. The gray tank is for kitchen and shower. The black tank is from the toilet. Probably the black tank is empty, or near so, but that depends on whether you are taking showers in the trailer or using the campground facilities.

RE: Rear Jacks not working - sometimes

Have you ever lubricated your shafts? I don't think it's the problem but worth a try. When mine need lubrication I have problems retracting them. My manual recommends using transmission fluid to lubricate them. I wipe it on with a cloth. In the past I had used WD40 in a pinch but the transmission fluid lasts longer.

RE: Free At Last

Ha...mine is paid off too. The payments go to another place now...the Workhorse repair center.

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: workhorse 2004 8.1 help please...Radiator hoses...

Are you replacing the thermostat too?

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.
