RE: The 300 foot rule -- do they mean what they say?

when you drive off the track in the arizona desert, you mark the earth for many years to come. the track on grass recovers much quicker than dry desert soil. use common sense and courtesy. leave the place you stay at least in the same condition you found it. thats for desert, forest or walmart parking lot.

RE: MIxing differant weight oils

yes, weight refers to viscosity, not actual weight. kind of like gauge in metal refers to thickness, while gauge in guns mean size of bore.

RE: A question of filtering poor propane.

get your propane from a company that sells lots of it. the grease accumulates in older used storage tanks. just like diesel fuel, propane gets old, and some of the components, such as the smell material, which has grease in it, separate and accumulate in the bottom of the big tank. when the suppliers tank gets low, its put into your lp system. ive seen an rv lp system filled up so bad, i had to disconnect the lines and run a swab on a wire thru it to clean it out. its a smelly, and nasty job.its not a common problem.

RE: One jack sticking

listen to doug he doesnt get paid to answer all these posts. he does it on his own. he doesnt solicit service work or sell parts here he does it, imo, because there is a need for good substantiated answers, based on experience, and the service manual he sees many times the problems that an individual owner sees. like i said, listen to doug. i havent seen a wrong answer yet. i monitor this site, as well as others, and also answer questions. there is no need to add my response, because it would be the same as dougs. i work for hwh full time. i also do not sell parts or service on this forum

RE: ALLISON 2000mh TRANNY PROBLEM, HELP!!!

geez, give it a rest. lots of folks make mistakes, they dont get nailed to the wall because of a spelling mistake. everyone knew what the op meant. everyone like a smart person, no one likes a smart ??? you dont make yourself look good by making someone else look bad. you see this on every site. must be that someone has nothing else to contribute. must be an english major

RE: Jack slips down while driving

the jack extends because the fluid heats up and expands. if this is a new set of levelers, i would say that a hose had been run near a heat source. but its several years old, so i would say the springs are getting weak because of rust or road grime. you can either clean them with a wire brush or rust solvent, but if it was mine, i would replace them. you can get them from hwh, stuarts in elkhart in, or on the internet. the fluid doesnt have to be changed unless you have allowed it to be contaminated. it doesnt get very hot, it doesnt wear out and doesnt evaporate. it also has a 30 micron sock filter in the tank, in case something get into the tank while filling it. if you dont have a visible leak, checking it once or twice a year is ok. i work for hwh.i do not sell parts or solicit service work on this forum. i do diagnostics

RE: spray lube for jacks?

btw, im with doug on the blown hoses. hwh states in their manual that anytime you have to go under the coach, that you use a jack stand or blocking. its a safety issue that should never be overlooked, but is on a regular basis.

RE: spray lube for jacks?

i work for hwh. i have worked on hwh jacks since 1973 hwh recommends either atf or wd 40. only. some rv techs may have other ideas, but thats their opinion. wd 40 is a solvent with fish oil in it as a small part of lubricant, ( i looked it up) atf is the fluid that is used in the system. it cant hurt a thing on the jacks. i know other mfg recommend other products, but its your jacks, use what you think best. i use dry silicone for a lot of things like my slide seals, my step and other areas that need lubrication. but not on my jacks.

RE: RV park "age restictions"

when asked about age of your coach, just ask the age of the park. and when was the last time it was upgraded. ive stayed in parks with that rule, and it was marginal at best. the electric was overloaded with all the coaches hooked to a couple of 110v feeds supplying the whole park. only a few 50 amp services. oh, and ask for pics if its over 10 years old. i understand the purpose of the rule, but i have rules too. my money my rules. ps walmart doesnt ask the age of your coach
