RE: Got hung up and could not move. How did I get out?

Sorry but I'm boondocking with poor cell service. This post was really to help those of us with air leveling only. MM hit it as I went into the manual leveling and lowered the front and raised the back. I even waited until I had max air while holding the raise button before trying to move. I do like the suggestion of letting air out of the front tires and the bored child. I did think about increasing the air pressure in the tag 's airbags but that regulator is hard to get. I was not going any where until I got the hitch out of the asphalt. Steep driveway and bad internet/cell service. You are really roughing it!

RE: Winnebego Itasca Passage 1995 fuse block question

Tying in to the TV amplifier might be a good way to go. It might even have a cigarette lighter type plug-in as part of the amplifier.

RE: Building and installing a slideout in a Class A Motorhome

You will kill the resale of the coach. Most people will not be interested in a one off modification done by an individual.

RE: Generator Smoking

Oil filter may need to be tightened. Oil could be dripping on muffler causing white smoke.

RE: What to do on way to New Orleans

It might take you out of the way to start in Nashville, but I think doing the Natchez Trace Parkway would be a great way to spend some time. Free campgrounds and lots of points of interest to stop at.

RE: Tank odors

Dump your tanks every three days especially in the heat of summer. After dumping, add several gallons of water to the black tank before using. Also, I dump my tanks when in transit to prevent any build up on tank walls. We do not need to use a tank treatment due to frequency of dumping.

RE: Are fivers roomier than a motorhome

A real benefit of a Class A or C is the ability to get behind the wheel and go if there is a bad element outside of your RV. Also, setup is faster and easier with a Class A or C. Comments some say is a 5er seems more homier.

RE: Oh - nooo. Not the engine repair you want to hear so soon

At least the repair is under warranty. I had to have an after cooler gasket replaced on an engine with 40 hours due to it being double gasketed from the factory. Since an air leak didn't show up on error codes, it took Cummins 12 man hours to diagnose the problem and 3 hours to repair. I was thankful for warranty on that one.

RE: Need help with my vents

There should be a rotary switch on the dash marked "Rear Heat". Turning it counter clockwise will turn the fan and heat off. If you can't find the switch, call Winnebago customer service and they will tell you exactly where it is.

RE: loosing Propane

Check the purge valve which might not have been tightened after last fill. No power to the safety solenoid would have shut off propane to the motorhome narrowing leak to the tank, fill valve or most likely purge valve.

RE: Another negative recommendation of an RV Park

Most of us have been the victims of a site near us having an excessive amount of visitors and making our stay less enjoyable. It may be a way for a campground to fleece a few bucks but at least they are managing crowds and abuse through fees.

RE: Amazon Same Day Delivery

Being rural we buy almost everything on the internet. Amazon is getting faster but still takes them the 7 days by the time they get the stuff on the stage coach headed to NW Wyo. Plus they have to feed the horses before they leave. That's your mistake, using the stage coach. Have you never heard of Pony Express. Good point except Pony Express has size and weight limits!

RE: Blown Engine, 8.1l

Jasper does have a "find an Installer" search on their website. Might be useful info.

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.

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.
