RE: Freightliner Cooling System Fill label

6. Close petcock at heater loop outlet valve when it begins to flow a steady stream of coolant. Do not allow more than 1.5 quarts to escape. 7. Open heater loop outlet valve. Tom

RE: Strange goings on

The "Go to first new post" link has nothing to do with whether or not you have looked at a thread. If a thread has more than one page and a post has been made in it since you were last active, then the "Go to first new post" link will be displayed. "Last active" is determined by a length inactivity; the length idle time to be considered inactive is determined by a preference setting. A thread can have new posts without the link being displayed, if there is only one page to the thread. BTW, the number of posts on a page is also determined by a preference setting. Tom

RE: Roadside Assistance

In our almost 30 years of RVing, we've had only one road service, CoachNet, so I can't speak for the others. But here is an example of their value to us. One Sunday after Thanksgiving, we were returning home from Huntington Beach State Park, in Murrellls Inlet, SC, when our right front brake locked up, as we approached Conway, SC. This was around 7 PM. I pulled into a K-Mart parking lot and called CoachNet. Their first question was "Are you in a safe location?" I responded that we were in a K-Mart parking lot in Conway and gave the street names. After describing the problem, the person I was talking to said let me check and I will call you back in ten minutes. In less than that amount of time she called back with the following information. "You have a warranty issue, so we need to get you to a Workhorse (the manufacturer of our RV's chassis, service facility. The closest one is more than 100 miles away and, of course, closed." We agreed that our best option was for Sarah to take the dogs home in our toad and I would spend the night in the parking lot. She said, "I will call the K-Mart to tell them what the issue is, but please go in and talk to them, yourself. I will call the Conway police department and tell them about the issue. We will call you in the morning and tell you what the arrangements are. How early will you be up?" The next morning, I was called around 7:30 and told that a tow truck would be at my location at 8 and that the coach would be towed to Whiteville, NC, about 44 miles away. The tow truck showed up at 8:05 and at 8:10 I received a call from CoancNet asking if the tow truck had arrived. We would not travel without CoachNet. Tom

RE: Am I correct or not?

...If you don't live in it full time then there is no tax write off as there would be in a house. ... IRS Publication 936 (see page 4) A motorhome is treated as a second home. Like a second home, if you don't rent it out for any part of the year, there is no residency requirement to claim a tax deduction for the interest paid on the loan. If you do rent it, then you must live in it for 14 days or more than 10% of the number of days it is rented out, for the motorhome to qualified as a second home. Tom

RE: test

Particularly from a senior member, one wonders why there is a test post with just the word "test." If one wants help or an explanation of something, it would be helpful to know what is being tested. For example, one that is having trouble making posts in another forum makes such a post, and they are successful, may go away without any clue as to what went wrong in the other forum. On the other hand, one that posts, "testing my ability to make a post, I don't be able to make posts in other forums," will get a response about the troubles the RV.Net portal is having processing some characters, such as the percent symbol. Hopefully, you test satisfied what you needed. If not, tell us what you are testing and/or why. Tom

RE: Testing 1, 2, 3

For some time now, since January 25, the RV.Net portal into the Open Roads Forum has been having issues; most notably with processing some characters; most notably, the percent symbol. Photobucket.com replaces spaces with %20. If the file name for the picture contains a space, the RV.Net portal will have an issue. Solution? Use the Woodall's portal to this forum. It is the same forum with the same login, without the same issues. Tom

RE: Odd forum behaviour when trying to reply to a post

If you are using the RV.Net portal, the problem is probably related to characters you are using. For example, the RV.Net portal cannot process the percent symbol (%) unless you are on the secured server (https://). Switch to the Woodall's portal, which is not having the same issues. Same forum, same login. As far as square brackets: The forum does a rudimentary format check related to tags used for URLs, images, and text formatting. Generally, you can use square brackets as long as you use an even number of pairs. For example, , is will pass the check. An odd number of pairs will be flagged as an error. If you post fails the format check, you will see a window with your post all on crammed together and a format error message. Tom

RE: Air Brakes - Alarm HELP

We had a 2008 Journey with a similar problem. In our situation, both gauges would go to zero. Turned out to be the wring to the gauges. In fact, there was a freightliner service bulletin on the issue along with a better wiring harness. Tom

RE: Missing Search Results

So is there any way to find it? I know what I am looking for is over 1 year old but newer than 2013. I am searching using Message Author in the Advanced Search. The forum search engine cannot find posts made between April 30, 2013 and 12 months ago. You could try a google search using the site option. If I wanted to search for the key word allie in posts that I made, I would enter the following in the search field: site:rv.net pulsar + allie That's a very inefficient way to search but may be the best you can do. (Did you look at 1492's hack?) If you quote this post, the site:rv.net pulsar + allie will be changed to site:rv.net pulsar + allie Tom

RE: Missing Search Results

Something is definitely not right? Why aren't the records for 2014-2015 showing up? :h Hopefully, its a search config issue. Which I'm leaning toward, as I can pull this date range using this hack here. The problem arose late on April 29, 2013 or early on April 30. I think that when a post becomes 1 year old, it is not being archived, as it is suppose to; i.e., it is staying in the active database. If it still is in the active database, the search engine cannot find it. A normal search can only look back 12 months, so it can't find an older post in the active database. An archival search can't find it because it isn't there. It is similar to the inability of the search engine to find old posts in still active threads.. (Do a search for Rainbow Bridge this post from 2006 that is a still active thread will not be found. That's because it is older that 12 months. Now do an archive search for Rainbow Bridge. Although it is more than 10 years old, it will not be found. That's because it is in an active thread and the forum software has never archived a post until the thread it is in has been inactive for 12 months.) Tom

RE: Cargo Capacity Rating-Is it Enough

CC sometimes is determined including water & propane, but is usually bone dry of everything. In real life, at the level this one has, you'd be probably over if you put a couple rolls of toilet paper in. The rules are different than when we started RVing. Then, weights disclosures were more an imaginary thing. In 2000 RVIA developed a labeling requirement that members were suppose to use. Included in those requirements was one that manufactures had to post the cargo carrying capacity of the coach. But there were no real teeth in the RVIA standards. Things changed in late 2007, when the federal government, through NHSTA, finalized their own regulations and labeling requirements. From the preamble to the regulations: we are requiring that the stated load carrying capacity not overload the vehicle. The GVWR of the vehicle must not be exceeded when the vehicle is loaded with the stated load carrying capacity. Manufacturers are permitted to understate the value of load carrying capacity to compensate for variances in manufacturing techniques, materials, and weighing techniques, however, under no circumstances is an overstated value of load carrying capacity permitted. Any inaccuracies due to scale tolerances and variances in manufacturing techniques or materials must be compensated for by appropriately increasing the safety factor between the allotted weight for occupants and cargo (or just cargo in the case of RV trailers) and the GVWR. Accordingly, the probability of moisture absorption by wooden structures before first retail sale should be considered in assigning the load carrying capacity. Included in the regulations: When weight is added between final vehicle certification and first retail sale, the load carrying capacity values on the labels must be corrected using one or a combination of the following methods: (a) Adding a load carrying capacity modification label within 25 mm of the existing vehicle (FMVSS No. 110) placard, and/or the motor home OCCC label, or RV trailer CCC label (FMVSS Nos. 110 and 120); (b) modifying the original permanent RV load carrying capacity label or vehicle placard with correct load carrying capacity weight values; or (c) replacing the original, permanent RV load carrying capacity label or vehicle placard with the same label or placard containing correct load carrying capacity weight values. Federal Registry In the end, you may find some manufactures that will cheat on the numbers, but not like in the old days. The Feds have too much clout. Tom

RE: Plans for Classifieds

For a period of time, 2008 - 2009, or so, the forum had a free classified section. http://i39.tinypic.com/2n8a3r8.jpg We were not informed as to why it was terminated. It was not moderated by the forum moderators. and it was very unwieldy;. Tom

RE: Cargo Capacity Rating-Is it Enough

It sounds low, but it would help to know how the CCC was calculated. If the coach was manufactured before 2008, the CCC is probably calculated using RVIA standards. In that case, CCC is in addition to the weight of fresh water. If it was manufactured after 2008, then the CCC should calculated using the (required by law) NHTSA standards. In that case, the weight of dress water is counted as part of the cargo. Regardless of which of the two standards, the weight of propane is in addition to the CCC. Tom

RE: Not able to reply to posts

I get this quite often when I check in and I am already logged in. Logout of the forum, log back in, and it will work perfectly. Its got something to do with being logged in for an extended period of time. I'm glad that works for you - It could be that when you log back in, that you are getting the secured server, which doesn't have the issue. I log out every time I leave the forum, yet I will have the problem. Here is a % symbol. Quote this post and make a reply?

RE: Having trouble posting "new post" to 5th wheel forum

I wonder if anyone has tried to fix this or at least explain in the error mesage. Has to be something simple. This is not the first time this issue has occurred. We saw it in late spring 2012 and it took several months to be resolved. I doubt that anyone who looked at the problem back then is still with around. This time around, the issue arose in late January, so we are 5 months into it. More than enough time to figure it out, one would think. Tom

We have carried (and used) one for 5 years and I recommend it. I can't speak to the weight on the rear bumper, since ours travels in the basement. Tom
