RE: storing for winter and diesel fuel additive

If there is no water in your fuel, you don't need a biocide. The biologicals will/can only grow at the water/fuel interface. True. But (make that a big BUT) knowing 100% that you do not have any water and that there will be 0% chance of condensation over the winter is too much speculation for me. Your fuel is at best only as good as your last fuel stop. In other words, who knows! It is sage advise to use a biocide for storage and is not costly per treatment.

RE: storing for winter and diesel fuel additive

I use a biocide when storing a diesel for more than 2-3 months.

RE: Natchez Trace; mid-October; entire lengh; where to RV camp?

Natchez Trace is a great drive. Take a few days and explore its many stops. There are three free campgrounds on the drive with no hook ups which will easily accommodate your set up. They do have clean and modern restrooms.

RE: Back up Camera advise

Check out Rear View Safety. They are available online and Costco.

RE: A Peek Inside an RV Factory

I din't see any gremlins in your pic. They must already be hiding in the RVs!

RE: Antifreeze and water lines

Blow out the lines with air, then flush with water. Solves the problem of diluted antifreeze in your water supply at the tap.

RE: Water and Power for Winter

It takes maybe 20 minutes to blow out the lines. Empty the tanks (WH too), blow out the lines and add antifreeze to the p-traps. No worries and less costly than running heat. To go on a trip means filling the water tank - not a big deal.

RE: Buying old RV

I suggest you look harder and find a 1990 or newer unit with fuel injection and overdrive transmission. Those improvements will enhance the drive ability and make the unit easier to sell when you are done with it. As rgatijnet1 states, many major mechanical problems can render the purchase valueless and you might want to go the trailer route if your main goal is to live in it. You can always hire someone to move a trailer for you.

RE: 1992 onan on board generator operation startup

I would run Seafoam through the generator for 15 minutes then stop the engine for 1/2 hour. Restart and see if that solves your problem. If not, adjust the choke.

RE: How much does a new engine cost?

As horsepower increases for the same engine block, the price of the engine rises drastically. The additional cost is to cover potential warranty claims. It is best to stay low to mid range horsepower for an engine block if your concern is longevity.

RE: When is overprice, a Rippoff ?

It just isn't NAPA. I've noticed most auto parts stores charge high prices for the incidental items needed to do a job. It is only a rip off if they charge more than the tagged price.

RE: What's Best Digital Antenna Upgrade ?

I added the Batwing and it did increase the amount of stations received.I also use "TV Antenna Helper" app for Android which takes the guess out of properly aiming the antenna.

RE: Safe-T-Plus

I installed the Safe-T-Plus in 1992 on my 1991 Winnebago. Improved handling and still works as new all these years later!

RE: OK, question for you "A/C" experts

I think your idea has merit. Your past posting of projects you've done leads me to believe you could easily fab a shroud from sheet metal and test it out. If it does improve cooling, then you could refine it (make pretty).

RE: Grey water tank failure

Investigate if the tank is repairable. Google search plastic tank repairs for ideas, repairers and DIY information.

RE: Kelderman Air Ride System

Ride height is critical for proper performance. Winnebago can give you specs for pavement to frame height. On my air system, it made a world of difference in ride quality when it was properly adjusted.

RE: Pricing confusion???????????

PPL's website has a section which lists actual sales prices. Also, the advanced search feature of Ebay can be used to find out what items really sold for.

RE: Buyer Requirement for RV Sale - What's your opinion

I would offer to drive the unit to his mechanic for inspection before the sale. I would request a non refundable fee of $300 to cover fuel and one night of camping. Any price negotiations for deficiency should occur before the sale, never after.

RE: What is the single best part of RVing?

The feeling of freedom when the fridge and fuel are full and waste tanks empty.

RE: Shower sunshade?

Take a look at RV Vent Insulators. They are available on Ebay. You might have to modify for a shower skylight or make your own.
