RE: Whoa, how much to wash my rig again...???

Jim, I pay my grandson $100.00 he's very happy and so I'm I! And, I agree with you that most of those mobile services charge too much!

RE: Class A Tire Blow and Roll-over

When I was a very young man United Parcel Service put me thru there driving school. And, I went thru a driving school while working for Food Services of America (Smith System Driving School), both of these schools recommend if you have a blow out to take your foot off the throttle pedal hold the steering very firmly and try to get off the roadway! Both schools said not to apply pressure to your brakes when this happens. I drove over the road 44-1/4 years and logged 4 million miles and this practice worked for me a time or two!

RE: Used DP, Miles vs Years

You should be able to get all of the information you need by asking if the seller has COMPLETE service records on the coach. Without any records, you have no way of knowing when or if any service was done on a regular basis. Some full timers put very little mileage on their rig but they have used the systems and interior 24/7/365 and the exterior has been exposed to the elements 24/7/365. Low mileage does not guaranty low usage. You can also find coaches with higher mileage that have only been lived in for a few months at a time. It just depends on how the people traveled. Again, COMPLETE service records will answer your questions. X-2, this is very important! You will wear out the inside of a DP before the engine needs rebuild. A well maintained DP should run over one million miles on the speedo!

RE: Good GPS for Class A motorhome

I use Map Quest on my phone. No extra cost. Down loaded the app. Between that and RVPARKY i had a great trip. Don't need a screen, it lets you know ahead of time what lane to be in and what turns to make. I did purchase a external speaker so i could hear it while laying on my dash. Drove over 6K last winter and did not go out of my way by 1/4 mile. X-2

RE: gun laws in New York

I live in Washington State and I have a concealed weapons permit. Legally it is unlawful for me to carry my handgun thru Oregon and California so when I'm traveling to AZ. I go thru Idaho, Utah and Nev. That way I'm legal and don't get to spend any money in Ore. or California when traveling.

RE: No turning back... need advise moving forward

www.Demartinirv.com (there out of Sacramento) has two used D.P. that you described and wanted 2004, 70,000 miles, 38', silver and black, there asking $78,000.00 and a 2011, 9,000 miles, 40', silver, black and white and there asking $169,000.00 We travel with 2 dogs and a parrot with no problems! We had a cat we traveled with but it died of old age several years ago. When we travel we have the post office hold our mail until we get to our destination then we have it forwarded. My meds, (Chimo), we have delivered thru CVS Pharmacy, I take enough with me to get to our destination then have them send it to my oncologist office (it costs me $12,000.00 per month). We pay our bills online with a Apple I-Pad we never had any problems. I recommend a Roadmaster Towing system when towing your jeep. My tow bar is 17 years old and is still in near new condition preforming just fine! Good Luck, John

RE: Jeep toad catches fire on interstate 15 in the Cajon pass

There was another RV related fire yesterday (8-18-16) on I-5 Federal Way, WA. State (between Seattle and Tacoma). A Class C RV driving S.B. on I-5 at 60 MPH rear ended a Red Toyota sedan (traffic came to a complete stop but the RV didn't stop) the Toyota was pushed under a large box truck. The fuel tank exploded on the Toyota and the people in the Toyota were trapped inside there car. Six brave people (other motorist) stepped up pulling there fire extinguishers out and got the fire out! The two people in the Toyota had to be cut out of the wreckage and were injured but alive. The Class C RV driver was citied by the Washington State Patrol for causing the accident. I would hazard a guess that the Class C driver had not installed brakes on the toad! It makes a huge difference in stopping distance. I totally agree with you! And the aftermath three vehicles that he caused severe damage too because he didn't want to put a braking system on his towed!

RE: Electrical Fire - Insurance Claim

I have Geico Insurance, a run away pick up truck (it was the paper boys pick up truck, he bailed out of the truck and didn't set the parking brake at the Ranger Station in Cattail Cove State Park, AZ.) The truck rolled down hill about 200' between 2 trees (truck missed both trees) and T-Boned my propane tank at 0500 A.M. it knocked me out of bed. I called Geico and they had me take pictures of the accident and send them to them, and had my RV towed to the nearest Winnebago repair shop. No adjuster was involved and Geico paid to have my whole propane system replaced along with all my hydraulic jacks that were bent. Lastly they did not raise my insurance rates.

RE: shower fixture

Most parts dealing with water problems, I found Lowes to be a big help! In AZ. they even ordered parts for me that they didn't have in stock. They have great customer service!

RE: Broken window

Ghost, I locked myself out one time but, I left one window closed but unlocked! I found a kind neighbor that had a ladder so I could get into the coach. Your downfall which is not your fault was time of day! Good Luck, getting a locksmith out of bed in the late evening.

RE: Running HDMI cable

Do you have ducted air conditioning? I just upgraded mine a few months ago and ran the HDMI cable through the A/C ducts. I put some photos on here, I'll see if I can find them for you. Very inventive!

RE: Kwikee Steps

The POWER to the ON/OFF switch is dead or not supplying the power to the Step module. When you have the Engine or KEY ON, that supplies the 12 volt power to engage the steps. The WHITE wire on the 4 wire quick connect under the step area harness should have 12 volts when the On/Off switch is engaged. If NOT, odds are the fuse for that wire is blown. The steps have 3 fuses. Fuse 1 is 12 volt Power. Fuse 2 is the 5 amp for that wall switch. Fuse 3 is the Ignition power wire from the Chassis fuse block. Fuse 1 and Fuse 3 obviously work. Fuse 2 is your problem area. Doug Thanks Doug, I'll take your advice and check everything out that you suggested!

Kwikee Steps

What do I need to look for to get my Kwikee Steps to work properly? When the engine is running my Kwikee Steps work just fine! When the engine is shut off my Kwikee Steps will not extend (they stay in the retracted position when the coach door is opened). The switch is in the on position but, nothing happens when the door is opened! My coach is a 2004 Winnebago!

RE: Inverter Questions

I haven't read all your posts! I own a Winnebago and my inverter is under the Range. Most inverters units will be mounted close to your batteries.

RE: What price to replace the engine water pump in a workhorse?

Mine took ME about 3 1/2 hours and the water pump cost me about $250. Once it was apart, I also changed the lower radiator hose, the smaller coupling hose, thermostat, serpentine belt, and idler pulleys. Obviously these add an additional $100 in parts PLUS the cost of antifreeze. Make sure that when they replace the lower radiator shroud that they check it's clearance from the water pump fan. I think you can expect a hit of about $800-$1000 to pay a shop to do it. I should add that there are less expensive water pumps out there that will fit the 8.1L engine. The problem is that you need the extra heavy duty one that has the larger front bearing to handle the weight of the heavy fan clutch and fan. It was GM part# 89017773 on a 2003 chassis several years ago. Thanks for the info I'm going to file it!
