RE: Where to place TIP

We put our in the top centre of the windshield, just below the tint. We have had two broken windshields and both times the glass shop was able to remove the decal and stick it back on the new one. Had a windshield on the toad replaced in Mexico and they cut the glass and we taped the whole thing in place. Like Moisheh's idea though. Wish I'd thought of it first!

RE: Cleaning the oven

I was told never use DW40 on anything so I just use DW to clean everything. :B Hope she doesn't see this post. :E

RE: coach battery drain

So it's your chassis, not the house batteries that are going dead? Common drain for chassis batteries is electric steps, dash radio, slide and stabilizers, and of course the engine ECM. Oh, And of course the vehicle lights.

RE: O.K. guys and gals, here, I believe, is a new one...

It's time to change your water filter Larry, and that problem will be solved. Thanks! Now if I can just figure out how to get that 'stuck' filter removed...! Make sure the lever is all the way up. Then give the filter a good two handed twist. (Don't rip the housing off the wall though!)

RE: Surge protectors etc

High voltage in the US is rare compared to the common inadequate CG wiring and low voltage. In Mexico (this is the Mexico Forum) the CFE standard in many areas is 127 VAC. We often see the 127 or more - in some area I see 132 as the norm. Many variables whether you have high or low in Mexico. Can vary from one side of the RV park to the other. The device I suggest is for Mexico and the question asked I believe was about Mexico. A low voltage regulator could be useful in the US - but maybe not so much in Mexico. I have seen (in Mexico) daily variation from during heavy use hours 133 Volts. Our Xantrex Prosine 2.0 Inverter watches the incoming voltage and line frequency and drops it out if out of spec. It does not give protection for transients and voltage spikes. We've been lucky so far. (We pull the plug during lightning storms) Forgot to mention that when the Xantrex cuts the power, its inverter function cuts in. The TV doesn't even flicker.

RE: 2002 Bounder Diesel front end clunk

I occasionally have the same thing happening with 2002 Itasca Horizon, also Freightliner chassis. Only at low speed though.

RE: I had a craving, but got over it!

It's only money. Have never seen any U-haul trailers full of money hooked up behind a hearse on its way to the cemetery yet. Here you go Milo. :B One of my nephews posted this on Facebook today. https://scontent-dfw1-1.xx.fbcdn.net/hphotos-xpt1/v/t1.0-9/12279143_1200962483253249_7895770887415209687_n.jpg?oh=40859440b738a6a2007d70d76eb1fad8&oe=56E4F49B

RE: New Oaxaca campground

And if we finally do, (we have missed them by a day or two through the years) we will do the same! Ditto. Met them at El Manglar years ago. Nice people.

RE: Answered. Thanks. No Current reading on Intellitec EMS

This may help: Manual From manual page 2: If 240 VAC, 50 Amp service is available, the energy management feature is disabled and the Control Module sends a signal to the Display Module which causes the load meter to go blank, the 50 AMP service indicator to light, and all power status indicators to light Thanks. Downloaded and saved in my Manuals file.

RE: Answered. Thanks. No Current reading on Intellitec EMS

I believe if you are connected a 50 amp service it will be blank YES! On 30A the ammeter reads correctly. I'm so seldom connected to 50 Amps I had never notice that before. (Only had the rig since April 2008.) :S

Answered. Thanks. No Current reading on Intellitec EMS

The subject line tells it all. Powerline EMS by Intellitec AC Line Load meter is blank. Used to work fine. Is it easy to remove the cover to get at it? I don't want to start prying and breaking things off. Thanks in advanced Art

RE: Congratulate me

How far can you tow your toad with the emergency brake set on it? Ask me, I know. Depends on whether it's on asphalt, concrete, gravel or grass. Gravel works better than asphalt. :S Need someone else to comment on the others. Or better yet, all four. :B

RE: Opinions on Mr. Clean Magic Eraser

We get a lot of dark staining from Arbutus (Madrona) leaves.I have found that a preventative good paste wax on the roof makes it easier to clean. No need to buff it to a high polish. Be careful on a waxed roof though, especially when it's wet. (My balance isn't good so I stay down on hands and knees.) Same with the front cap--keep it well waxed and the bugs come off easier.

RE: Letting a Class A sit for a month or two but full timing

And DON'T run the engine once a month "just to let it roar". If you aren't going to drive it for an hour, don't start it. Don't take my word for it, ask the dealer service manager. Or any competent mechanic. The generator should be started once a month and RUN UNDER LOAD, (heat, AC, what ever) for 30 to 60 minutes.

RE: Emergency Stop

Had to do it twice; 1) 80 KM/H (50 mpg) 4 lane highway in the right lane, car passed then pulled in very close in front of us, braked hard and pulled into a gas station. Hit the brakes then the air horns. Missed him by inches. I followed him in and had a few words. His wife said please don't yell at him we're on our honeymoon. I said I'm driving over 12 tons. Keep doing things like that you won't live to see your first anniversary. In downtown Monclova, Mexico, approaching intersection with the green light, car in the cross street blew the light. Again, missed by inches. Both times there would have been a collision without the auxiliary braking in the toad.
