RE: alternator not charging

Start with the simple things. Make sure your cables are fastened securely to the battery posts and check the ground strap. Using a meter, measure the alternator's electrical output. If you determine it is the alternator, Ivylog's suggestion on buying a battery charger would be my plan of action. By the way, I carry a heavy duty 20 foot pair of jumper cables for emergencies to be able to bypass my chassis battery and run off the house.

RE: Thinking of trading in and upgrading.

Try a Bluebird. They may not be new, but your husband and you might be happy with this one: CLICKY

RE: Interesting Insurance issue I just discovered-Progressive

Depends on how long you keep it. If you keep it another 10 years and it is totaled you will wish you kept current insurance coverage. Otherwise, you will get a few thousand dollars which means a replacement will be almost entirely at your expense.

RE: Upgrading 30 amps to 50 amps?

The air conditioners alternate on/off on my 34 footer. It keeps very cool and comfortable even on the hottest of days. I would use it as is for a while to see if you really need to run both airs at the same time. If you do, search RV.net for adding a 15 amp line to run the rear air. The front air would run on the 30 amp service. Most electrical pedestals have a 30 amp and 15 amp service.

RE: Winnebago VIA 25T Loft Bed or Driver Side Door

Get what YOU want. Adult kids could always tent camp with you.

RE: Getting around the Campground

We use our feet. They are free, and are easy to transport to the campground. I didn't read this whole thread. I agree with the above statement. I understand it's different if you have mobility issues due to health problems. Walking is good exercise if you and the family learn to take walks together you will live longer, healthier lives, and save money on doctor bills and prescriptions. Your stress levels will be lower too. In fact jogging is not a bad option either. I agree and look for campgrounds (usually state parks) that have trails to hike as well as walking the campground. I am amazed at some people who are driving around morning, noon and night and wonder why they even go camping! Part of camping is to enjoy the outdoors.

RE: Generator Hunting Under Load

Check the choke adjustment.

RE: Winnebago Ad - Not always True

Hopefully that will be your only issue with the coach!

RE: Black vs. White A/c shrouds

Take the shroud off and see if the cooling improves.

RE: Florida panhandle Camping

Henderson has nice sites and the beach is right there. Very hard combo to match! The downside is the traffic noise. I like all the parks mentioned for their various attributes. I would suggest reserving at Henderson for part of the time and spend one or two nights at other campgrounds listed to test the waters. Part of RVing is being adventurous IMHO.

RE: Generator Hunting Under Load

First thing I would do is run Sea Foam through the carb for 30 minutes. Let it sit for an hour and then run it for 15 to 30 minutes more with the Sea Foam mix. Re-adjust the choke if needed and see if that clears up the hunting.

RE: Mobile Tire Shop?

You do want to have your front tires balanced. A mobile service could use balancing beads. Make sure they re-torque the lug nuts after driving the unit for a few miles. Frankly, I don't know what time you would save using a mobile tire service. I would think it will be more costly for both the tires and install.

RE: Screen door

Is this what you need? CLICKY If not, you could fab a replacement out of the stationary side.

RE: Can I whine???

I found my business ran better when I was on vacation. My employees worked harder to prove they could handle things in my absence. I always felt even if it did cost more money in hours worked or supplies expended, it was worth it not to be anchored to the business 365 days/year.

Another potential cause can be a radiator hose collapsing and restricting the flow of coolant.

RE: Opening Vent In Summer

When in transit, I keep the vent open and the dash air keeps the interior comfy. No need to run the roof airs.

RE: Service appointments

Search the web and try to troubleshoot the problem yourself. A lot of times fixes can be a lot quicker than the time it takes to drop off and pick up at a shop. If you are under warranty, wait.

RE: tv freezing problem

I use an a Droid app called TV Antenna Helper. It allows you to tune your antenna by letting you know direction and miles TV signals are coming from.

RE: precision parking

Lines on the floor and/or wall is the way to go as Scott and Jack have mentioned. It works for aircraft and large trucks on a daily basis.

RE: Onan Generator 5500 Gold Fuel Pum

I once had a "Full Service" done which included a tune up, filters and oil to my 6500 generator. I was charged 1.9 hours labor. That was at a factory service center so it should give you a very good comparison point for you determine how fairly you are being charged. Since that time, I do all my own maintenance and can tell you 1.9 hours is a generous amount of time IMHO.
