RE: What diesel conditioner to use for storage??

I have always added biocide for winter storage. Diesel does expand when it warms up so fill to 7/8 to leave room for expansion.

RE: Gas leak on Generator

Cross reference to a NAPA filter. I believe it is a filter used on older model Fords.

RE: Clearance lights continue to flash

My system will do that if a lock is out of sequence. In other words, all locks must lock at the same time. If one lock was manually locked before using the remote, my clearance lights will flash. They will also flash to indicate low chassis battery charge. This is on a 1991 but it might give ideas on items to check.

RE: 1990 Class A, 460 Ford Vision by Rexhall- maintenance

The brake fluid reservoir should be located in the drivers side front wheel well on the frame.

RE: Doing dumb things..

My back up camera monitor is built into the dash. I took it out to have repaired. The repair wasn't done and I took off on a trip. About 1100 miles into the trip, I discovered that I forgot to refasten the dash. It had been lying in place all that time. I guess air ride really does work.

RE: Any chance for Topsail without a ressie?

When you know when you will arrive, go on Reserve America website (or call) and check for site availability. Dependent upon your length of stay, you might have to reserve separate sites for different days. Flexibility is the key.

RE: How old is too old, subjective question but I want opinions

Compared to my 1991, you have a relatively new unit. We've had ours since new and don't hesitate to go coast to coast in it. As far as replacing a tranny or engine, that expense would be less than the depreciation hit the first day you drive another new one off the lot. I am afraid if I upgraded, I would be a two motorhome owner since I don't think I could part with mine.

RE: great spot without a car?

Henderson Beach State Park in Destin Florida may be a great choice. Restaurants and shopping across the highway. Very nice sites and well run park.

RE: Going to need new winnebago generator start switch

Clicky Mobility RV in Iowa specializes in Winnebago parts. They are close to the factory in Forrest City.

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. So, Jeanette's Party Bus and Jeep in tow will have no issue on the Trace? We are looking into the idea of riding it from Nashville. Not a problem. I've seen Bluebirds with tows in the campgrounds. Since they are free, I suggest stopping by 2-3 pm before they fill up for best site selection.

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: 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.
