RE: Best Practice to tie up dog?

I use a plastic coated cable and have a corkscrew staking device meant for frequent relocating. That said, I usually hook the cable to a picnic table leg. My big boy lab is well behaved but gets hooked up due to that 1/100 chance that something attracts his interest and he is tempted to leave campsite. Also, it eases camping neighbors minds since they do not know the dogs behavior.

RE: Searching for the best RV GPS also with good volume

I use a smart phone and run volume through the radio via Bluetooth. I don't know if your unit has that capability but I'd investigate.

RE: Reimbursed for traveling to manufacturer?

Personally, I would be more interested in getting repaired correctly than being reimbursed for expenses. I would schedule an appointment, have the work done and camp in the local area for a few days to make sure all is OK. Not worrying about when it will fail again is priceless in my book.

RE: RV Stolen Yesterday

Another person recommending a rescue dog. I've had two and they are the best. They really do appreciate having a home and people of their own.

RE: sleeping with generator on

Admittedly it is a very negligible risk, but it is too much risk for me to take with my life. Equipment including sensors, alarms and generators can malfunction at anytime.

RE: sleeping with generator on

I will not run mine while sleeping. If it is that hot at night, I will plan accordingly and be in a campground with an electrical hook up. If you must run while sleeping, please use a Gen-Turi generator extension.

RE: Onan genset stops running--------Fixed

Start by dis-connecting generator fuel line. Mix a gallon of gas with SeaFoam and run generator for 15 minutes from gas can fuel(Have can higher than Genny for gravity feed). Let sit for at least 30 minutes and then restart. It just may be a gunked up carb. Repeat again if necessary. Might have to reset choke. If that doesn't work, then look at other culprits like fuel pump and filter.

RE: Refrigerator Cooling, Propane vs. Electric

We have always run it on electric and store frozen food in freezer to assist in cool down. The frozen foods in freezer is a suggestion in my refrigerator owner's manual.

RE: Generator fuel consumption

Go to the generators manufacturer's website. It will list hourly burn rates at various loads.

RE: Winnebago Ad?

Glad the Good Sam Club, Camping World and CWRV Transport ads don't bother anyone.

RE: Need a new GPS, recommendations etc.

My vote is for a smart phone with Google Maps. Bluetooth the phone through your radio and you will always hear the driving directions. Free and great app. Did I mention the app is FREE.

RE: Grayton Beach SP access to beach?

It is a short walk to the beach. Approximately 10 minutes. Walking is a good thing!

RE: First-timer: essentials for that maiden voyage...

As mentioned earlier, Walmart is your friend. Buy what you forgot there and don't worry about it.

RE: A golddie oldie that I stumbled across

Winnebago bought back the Spectrum's due to the rear engines overheating. They were very innovative and included rubber hinges on storage doors as well as other advanced features. Later, they were sold to Special Interest Vehicles who supposedly was able to resolve the engine problems. Looking at their website, it appears they have a few new conversions available! SIV Link

RE: What to do when RV has been idle for more than a year

I am assuming it is a gas engine at 33 feet. Start it up and run it. If it runs rough, add a fuel system cleaner such as SeaFoam. Make sure to run the genny with the fuel system cleaner as that will probably need it more than the engine fuel system.

RE: Coach batteries toasted?

I can run my furnace all night in 20F weather and have power left in the morning. I do set the temp to 60/65 during sleeping time. The coach batteries are two 12 volt deep cycle batteries.

RE: Winterizing in Texas while still using RV regularily

For piece of mind, I would blow out the lines, empty tanks, drain W/H and add antifreeze to p traps. Takes me 20 minutes.

RE: Cat 275 hp Diesel

That era of CAT engine did have a problem with engine castings and turbo lubrication. There would have been catastrophic engine failure many years ago if those defects were present on that engine. No worries but I would still find a CAT dealer able to load test the engine and spend the money to have them test and inspect before purchase. A major engine problem could meet or exceed the value of the coach to repair.

RE: White dust coming from dash AC vents

It could be talc used to eliminate or reduce dashboard squeaks.

RE: Coach Insurance In Storage

Nothing is "secure" anymore. I had a 40' Tourmaster in a 'secure' storage facility. The thief (s) broke into the coach, hotwired it and drove it right through the fence, onto the street and away they went. It was recovered several weeks later, with obvious front end damage and lots of other stuff. Fortunately, it was recovered about 10 days AFTER I received my insurance check. Think this decision over carefully, the money you save may not really be a savings...Dennis I agree. Suggest you shop insurance for lower rates as a way to save money than putting yourself at potential risk.
