RE: Garmin RV 760 vs Rand McNally 7720

Recently received the newly introduced Garmin RV 660LMT. Similar to the 760 but with a 6"screen. Setting up was a breeze. Currently available only from Garmin. Good luck. Jack h 2005 Bounder 8.1 Workhorse

RE: Details for Clear Coat Repair

I repaired a small area mainly to stop it from spreading. First I used a plastic scraper to remove loose clearcote. Then 2000 grit sand paper. Alcohol to clean. Masked off and used clear cotespray can from Walmart. Barely notice able and has lasted 2 years. Less than $10. Good luck. Jack h.

RE: rpm sweet spot on class A with 365hp v10 for mpg?

Forget about MPG's and drive with traffic staying in safe road position. The dynamics of road vertical ups and downs, negates the sweet spot due to the weight push going down and the weight drag going up grades. Sweet spots are even useless in flat terrain as traffic dictates the safest speed. Proper tire inflation to the load is more important than sweet spot RPM's. Just know enough to speed up and slow down at RV smooth and safe rates. 8 seconds behind any vehicle in front of you at 60 MPH and merge into moving traffic with signals and accelerate to traffic speed ASAP, even if it means putting the pedal to the metal. SAFETY IS MORE IMPORTANT THAN SAVING A FEW PENNIES. What a bunch of baloney! jack h

Factory installed Magnadyne 300 watt inverter

The factory installed 300 watt inverter's fan is howling and the unit likely will have to be replaced. Unable to find a close replacement for the hard wired Magnadyne inverter. Has anyone replaced with a suitable unit? Thanks. Jack h 2005 32W Bounder Workhorse 8.1

RE: Hail damage

FWIW. From what I have read fiberglass roofs are more susceptible to hail damage then rubber or TPO. Good luck. Jack H

RE: Fogged up window repair

You might also just remove one of the pane instead of replacing the window, making it a single window. Window may be etched. I'm also thinking auto safety glass is thicker? Thanks. Jack H

RE: Fogged up window repair

Has anybody replaced their dual pane windows with single pane auto safety glass? I would consider this for the drivers and passenger windows. I think the repaired dual panes would eventually fog up again. Thanks. Jack H

RE: Fogged up window repair

Ok, I found a web site on the subject but this is about home window. I want to do this on my dual pane on the MH. I do not want to change the windows. http://condensation2clear.com/?gclid=CNu6zaiuwMECFQMT7Aoda2gAQw. I know a guy that does it in my home town and it works, even at minus 30 in winter. After drilling a hole, they install a one way valve so air will escape and not go back in, creating back the thermal barrier. RV windows are tempered, check with RVfogdr.com. This is why the guy I called says he cannot drill through, but he says it will work if I drill in between, problem is I cannot install the valve and I will loose the thermal barrier. But this would be the least of the problem. It is interesting that Pella Windows used to use the same system in their casement windows. Except they called the vent a 'bee guard'.

RE: Texas safety inspection

So get it done in Texarkana Thanks. I actually checked into this. I'm trying to avoid the hassle of taking the time finding the location, disconnecting the toad, etc. I haven't had the rig inspection since 2011. jack H

RE: Texas safety inspection

A couple of years ago we were in the Dallas area when the state inspection came due. The inspection station had me sign an affidavit stating I was not required to have an emissions inspection because my county of residence did not require one. The registration sticker shows the county where the vehicle is registered. Do you recall the name and location of the station. The 2 I called in N. Dallas gave a no answer. Thanks. Jack H.

RE: Texas safety inspection

When I had my class a DP, Texas state inspections were my biggest pet peeve. I never could find a place that would do the work. The standard line was "we do not have an inspection bay capable of handling your 43 foot motorhome" I would always ask who does. I gave up after spending $$$$ on diesel running around every year trying to get an inspection and just went without. I was seriously considering a Montana llc in order to combat this problem of useless state inspections. Texas does not require the emission inspection on a DP. They have never even wanted to take mine inside. They do it sitting in the parking lot and only takes about 5 minutes; quick walk-around looking at the tires, check all lights (headlights, turn signals, lp light) and the horn is about it for a diesel. OH, and dougrainer knows what he's talking about. In Dallas they will do the inspection required for your residence county, and does not have to comply to the more stringent Dallas emission requirements. Actually this is wrong. According to the Tex.Gov site and the DPS office I called if you get an inspection in a emmission check county you have to get and pass a check even though your county does not require. That why I posted this question. I received the warning ticket from a Highway cop on TX 380 on my way out of TEX. He gave me a hard time. Thanks. Jack H

Texas safety inspection

My safety inspection has expired and I am facing difficulties renewing. The MH is registered in Polk county with no emission test required. I am visiting the Dallas area in a couple of weeks on my way to Yuma. Dallas and surrounding areas require an emission test, which I would like to avoid. I received a warning ticket last April traveling through Texas. Has anyone faced this situation? Thanks. Jack h

RE: Scan Gauge

For me I only have trans temp and engine temp displayed. I do have a couple more gauges set up, but they are not a concern. My phone is in a mount on the windshield just like a scan gauge, so it is very user friendly. Even on a scan gauge you only have 2 monitors displayed. Very easy to just swipe to the side to go the next display. When I get a class A I will have an IPad or Tablet to monitor the gauges. There is a bit more dash area in class A so the I pad or Tablet will fit better! Scan Gauge displays 4 parameters at a time! Get your facts straight. Thanks. Jack H

RE: Scan Gauge

Just for information, Scan gage/ultra gage keep the computer powered-up even when the engine is turned off. This might be a problem if you dry camp for an extended period. I don't know about the dongle. My ScanGauge goes dark after a few minutes with the engine off. Both my scan gauge and my Edge CTS went dark within seconds of turning off the ignition. I have engine programmer that has LEDs the monitor the ECU state. With a scan gage/ultra gage hooked up and programed, the ECU monitor indicates that the ECU is stilled powered-up. Yes, the display does go blank, and dark, but the programmer indicates the ECU is still using power. I didn't mean to start a debate, just information. More information. Current draw to maintain Scan Gauge memory when turned off is 2mA. (0.024 watts) IMHOP little effect on boondock time. Probably same as radio. Less than alarms. Good luck. Jack H

RE: Scan Gauge

I have the ScanGauge and use it to continuously monitor my charging voltage, my air/fuel ratio, my coolant temperature, and my transmission fluid temperature. My dash already has a digital readout of my oil pressure. I figure that by monitoring these things on a continuous basis, I can tell if anything is going wrong with my charging, cooling or fuel system. The gauge is mounted high on my dash and is easy to monitor as I drive down the road. It also has the advantage of immediately storing a fault code if something fails and it allows me to reset the codes if I need to. X2 I monitor Oil pressure, water temp, trans temp, current MPG. SG will monitor 16 parameters. Thanks. Jack H

RE: Scan Gauge

If you have a smart phone all you need is a $20 app and a WiFi or Bluetooth OBDII dongle (wireless connector) $20. I have one with my Iphone and my new tablet. it gives way more info than the Scan Gauge. I really like how it works. for $40 it works great! I am using an APP called Dash Command, you can get it from the Apple App store or Googe play app store. there are other versions such as Torque app. these are the only 2 good apps. there are others, but they are not as good. Have you used a scan gauge? Thanks. Jack H
