RE: Got the call this weekend....

Well all you “youngsters”, I’m heading to my 60th class reunion this coming August. Looking forward to it. Doubt we have a lot of attendees from the 62that graduated in 1958.

RE: Class A Diesel Idling

I’m not sure I’ve seen and or heard of people idle for 90 minutes but sure have seen and heard them for WAY longer than needed of any modern diesel book recommends. I just figure it is from people that don’t know how to read or if they do don’t believe manufacturers know what they write.

RE: I finally understand what a dry heat is.

Well buckhorn, your comment reminded me there are always exceptions where it is hot and dry and feels hot. One such time was when we pulled in to the Avi casino RV park near Laughlin Nevada in the late afternoon in July. It was 115 F. It was hot. Parked, went to the casino and did not come back to the coach until after dark. Dry did nothing in that case to make it even tolerable

RE: I finally understand what a dry heat is.

Maybe you shouldn’t be telling everyone. They might all like it and overpopulate the Southwest.??

RE: Rattle Snakes

I’ve lived in NM for 38 Years and I’ve seen one rattle snake in that time.it was on a county road and an individual was trying to “herd” it across a road with a stick. My wife walks a dog in the desert and watches and stays away from likely habitats but has never seen one. The point is watch for them, be aware but you may never see one.

RE: Dometic AC 13.5K fan failure.

My acnd with heat pump had the yellow wire with the spade connecter but was not to be connected. During The techs conversation with dometic he was instructed to cut the wire off. He did and it was fixed.

RE: Dometic AC 13.5K fan failure.

My problem I explained above sounds very similar to yours. My acnd would run-initially for about 18 minutes and then the fan would shut off but compressor would hum. After leaving it on it would run for 3 minutes, fun shut off, and hum continue. The fan would come on 4 minutes or so later for another 3 minutes. What caused it was connecting the wire to the board rather than clipping it off as I explained. What was happening was the fan motor was cutting off due to thermal overload. The motor was shutting off because it got too hot. In fact hot enough to burn the techs hand when he touched it. The fan motor and the board was not capatable because it was a three speed motor, high, medium and low. The thermostat would only work correctly with a two speed motor. Cutting the wire of disabled the medium speed leaving only low and high. Problem solved

RE: Dometic AC 13.5K fan failure.

Had similar problem after installing new replacement acnd / heat pump.long story short . After 1st extremely well qualified tech installed unit it would not work. Was checked by 2nd extremely well qualified tech who after 4 hours of working could find no problem. Finally called Dometic tech service and found that because of changes in units the board required to make a new unit work with old thermostat one wire somewhere had to be cut off rather than connected to the board as instruction indicated. Both tech said there are so many changes Dometic could not change instructions as fast as they made changes to units. I had called Dometic customer said I need to have a tech call them. In fact insisted on it. They were correct about that

RE: Why I will not retire

I retired at 63 years of age. I was waiting for a buddy from work to retire and then we and spouses were going to take off in RVs. He went to hospital one day, 4 Days later was diagnosed with cancer and 4 months later we attended his funeral. I month later I was retired, my wife and I took off in the RV. For several years we travel 3 months, home for three months. 15 years later we are home ( visiting doctors) a little more, but still travel lots. Loved my job, but enjoy retired life better. I my lesson learned was if I want to do something, go do it. You Have no guarantee as to what tomorrow may bring.

RE: Southern New Mexico and Big Bend

From Columbus and the musieum you should go across to the pink house in palomas Mexico for a great lunch, including a margarita p, maybe some Mexican music and some shopping. With everything folks here have outlined for you to do you may as well visit with a reatitor, buy a home and move to Alamogordo . Of course I may be a little prejudiced . If you are a member of the Elks there are full hook RV sites here.

RE: Southern New Mexico and Big Bend

Recommend at least a week at big bend national park. Stay at the campgrounds at the south end of park along the rio grand river. There are lots of things to do and see in and around the park for which you will need your Jeep. Day trips around southern NM are many. Valley of fire state park, petroglyphs north of Tularosa, Billy the kids stomping grounds in capitan, international space hall of fame In Alamogordo, mountain towns of Cloudcroft and Ruidoso. This is a start..

RE: Can I Use My Old Base Plate

If it’s still on or for the original Jeep you should be able to use it. If the Jeep was also replaced you will have to check part numbers to see whether the “old” base plates will fit on a newer Jeep.

RE: Help Guru's I'm Undecided on Possible MH change

The coach I referred to above looks like the model 3736. Check it out to see if it meets your requirements.

RE: Help Guru's I'm Undecided on Possible MH change

Check out a (assume they still make it-not sure) the full wall slide 37 foot Dutch star diesel.. if still made it may be about the same size. My 39 foot 2007 Kountry is exactly 39 feet bumper to bumper. The 37 foot 2016 Dutch star coach I reference above was longer that 37 feet. I loved that floor plan and it appeared to be very close to the same size as my 39 foot coach.

RE: Recliner hold down bracket help please.

I wouldn’t drill through the floor. Think I would just let it sit there. It’s not going any where unless you have an accident and then the movement of a couple of chairs is the least of your problems.

RE: Thinking of a class A but have one question about the gen

Talked to a guy who was dry camping in Alaska who was running a small Honda generator most of the day. Ask him why he was doing that when he had the on board generator. He said that was all the power he needed most of the time. It was enough to charge the batteries, make coffee, watch s little tv etc and it was far cheaper to operate than running his on board diesel generator.

RE: Convection Microwave

My DW uses the convection oven in the coach for everything. Liked it so much we put one in the house and she uses it far more than the stove oven. And leaves the turntable in

RE: Safe method of financial transaction at sale time

At least one other poster had the only way I would do the deal as either the seller or the buyer. Go to you bank or other bank and have them set up an escrow account. They then hold the title and when they have the money, they hand over the title. Have done this several times. Very easy, very safe.

RE: Power Problems at Campground

The unit surge protection can only look at incoming power, looks at incoming voltage, it probably detects faults, or voltage on neutral or grounds where it should not be. It cannot detect any problem internal to the RV. As for going to another campground one only needs to go to another pedestal that is on a different circuit. If works on one but not the other one knows where the fault is but unless you have a read out capability you will not know what it is.
