RE: RV sitting for over 2 years - recommendations

Don't matter if it's gas or diesel run 3 cans of Seafoam thru the engine and genset it will clean your fuel system up after sitting for a couple of years. Seafoam is $6.94 per can at Walmart and 3 cans will treat a 50 gallon fuel tank. Pour the Seafoam in first then fuel!

RE: Air compressor will it work?

I have a little 125 psi compressor that I bought at Harbor Freight and it runs as darsben1 described. Sure is good for blowing off dead grass on the riding lawn mower before I put it away. I would take Mandalay Parr suggestion and buy one at 145 psi! By the way I bought mine for $99.00 brand new (NIB). Good Luck, Rooster

RE: Mt Rushmore

Planning trip from Salt Lake City Utah to Mt Rushmore what is a RV friendly route? Wife doesn't like switch backs in motor home. Some curves are ok but nothing drastic. She's not going to like the road up to the monument, :) X-2, or the road to Crazy Horse just up the road!

RE: 30 ft- one roof air sufficient?

I owned a 31 footer many years ago and it did just great. Had trouble with it cooling when I was in the Southwest in July in 100* + weather. Good Luck and enjoy your new coach.

RE: Rear Mud Guards

It's funny you mentioned mud guards Ray. I was at my dentist the other day and he told me that a Washington State Trooper stopped him on Hwy.#16 and gave him a warning, due to he did not have mud guards on his diesel pick up truck. Unless it has been changed, it has been a requirement for all vehicles to have mud guards on every axle location, no matter what year, pick-up or passenger car. I was researching what color lights were allowed on front and rear, and was taken back to see the requirement for mud guards on all vehicles. We have seen pictures of toads with far more rocks on the hood, windshield, and roof. I was told by the WSP that red marker lights go on the rear! When I was driving (OTR) we used amber colored lights to the front. And, I agree with your post Wildman!

RE: Rear Mud Guards

It's funny you mentioned mud guards Ray. I was at my dentist the other day and he told me that a Washington State Trooper stopped him on Hwy.#16 and gave him a warning, due to he did not have mud guards on his diesel pick up truck. That is a new one I had never heard of something like that. I got mud flaps behind the wheels, and I have the big mud flap that goes all the way across. The big mud guard is the one I am going to replace. I went up a steep drive way and bent the metal on the mud guard with the tow bar. Starting to get hot here in the high desert. We are leaving in another week to the Sierra's where it will be much cooler and do some creek fishing. Ray my friend have fun up in the High Country! Mud Flaps on Pick Ups is to try and help reduce rock damage to windshields on vehicles behind the pick up according to the Washington State Patrol.

RE: Dealer wrecked my motorhome

RE: 110 hookup only ???

On a single 120 volt outlet I have been able to run one AC as well as the TV and lights. I switch off the AC when using the microwave. The WH is on propane as is the refrigerator. It just requires energy management and watching the meter to see how many amps you are drawing. X-2, I've done this before Brian, but you don't want to do this in extreme heat!

RE: Do not use awnings in heavy rain?????? Really???

I live in Washington State and use my awning all the time in rain. Even if my awning was in the in position during those one week soaker rain storms my awning still gets wet while it's all rolled up. First dry day I air it out! What you have to watch is the wind if you don't have a auto wind awning roll up you will be buying a new awning. I have mine set at 30 MPH windspeed, even if were not around the coach the awning rolls up automatically.

RE: Fiberglass Cleaner for Motorhome Roof

Richard, I use a product called Simple Green which I purchased at WalMart. I use it 1 to 1 in a 5 gallon bucket about (1/3 full). I use a stiff bristle deck brush to apply it on my fiberglass roof. Then I use a power washer (on the lowest setting) to remove the Simple Green. If you use my method wet down the sides, front and back of your coach to prevent run off streaking, and never let the power washer touch a caulk seam.

RE: check engine light

Tommy, what your describing happened to me and it ending up being a tank of bad gas going thru the engine. 3 cans of Seafoam ($6.94 per can ) at WalMart cured the problem for me at the next fill up. Good Luck

RE: Raising The RV

Chalk block one of the front wheels, front and rear and put the RV transmission in Park mode. You want to do this so the RV does not move when the rear wheels are off the ground. I've done this before with success, but it still makes me nervous with the back wheels off the ground.

RE: Do you carry fire wood in a storage bin?

Bob, I don't burn wood anymore I don't like the smoke! When I did, I would put the firewood in a recycle bin crate. By doing that it kept my storage bins clean.

RE: Highway 12 between Yakima and I5

After you leave Woodland head north on I-5 and take the mile post #68 exit. You will be exiting to the right and stay right onto the White Pass Hwy. #12. Very nice view up on top of White Pass during daylight hours of the Lake and as your starting down the Dam. You will follow the Naches River all the way down. When you get into Yakima if you like Hamburgers? I highly suggest Miners. Plenty of room for a RV and same people that own Miners are still alive and have been in that spot since 1949!

RE: would ya/could ya use Flexseal on the roof??

I hope to find old posts of this subject that has been discussed before. So it is going to be a do not use on the MH roof product. Thanks for the input!! Travel safe. If you have a fiberglass roof Dicor Self Leveling Caulk works really well. Interesting comments on the flexseal, I also bought a can of that when it first came out but never used it on anything!
