RE: AE Electric Awning Troubles

Sounds like it "amps" out. When amperage gets to some point because it is binding it stops til it cools then will go again. Can also be low voltage. Especially on hot days it is worse. Low voltage can be caused bu too small wire supplying the motor, a bad splice in the wiring someplace.if you hook up 12 volts directly to the motor and bypass the controller and it goes in and out with no problem start looking at controls or wiring. I hab same problem and it took 5 years to figure out then find a bad splice between the controller and motoe. Only splice was by passenger seat. That was it.

RE: clear coat flaking off roof edge panels

When i tried a repair I attempted to feather the egde of the clear coat with fine sand paper. The color coat was so thin when it was "touched" it was gone. Clear coat cannot be cut in or patched but I figured at the top and roof of the coach it would not be noticeable. Not sure about other products, but if you have this condition on a Newmar motor home I think you will need a professional fix.

RE: clear coat flaking off roof edge panels

Very common problem with Newmar products in that time frame. Per Newmar it was a problem with the clear coat product and they corrected it sometime later. Happened to mine and many others. I tried fixing mine. The color coat was so thin that it would sand off when sand paper touched it. Got an estimate to fix for $3000. Found that Newmar at that time had a special price to fix meaning repaint the roof and radius for $1200. I took mine to the factory and it was redone. Three years later still good.

RE: Poorly designed ductwork - need opinions!

If you install an adjustable grill or otherwise reduce the size of the existing duct and reduce airflow, make sure you don't reduce it enough that the furnace shuts down via the thermal cut off because the furnace got too hot.

RE: Extended service plans

Have a friend that bought a preowned coach and because he had no history with it he purchased the good Sam extended service plan (or whatever it is called His intention was to only purchase it for the first year of ownership to see what how things went and to build confidence that all was well with the coach. Worked out fine for him. Kind of like buying your own warranty policy. Other wise I would never buy any such policy. Put the same amount of money in the bank and pay for items as / if they come up and be money ahead.

RE: Mail problems very fustrated

We had same problem. Post master gave us a red card to put in mail box that says or means do not put mail in box. Goes back to post office and as far as we know it then gets delivered to our post office box or held whichever as we planned. If it goes to our postal box we then have someone pick it up and forward it to us.

RE: From one extreme to the other - electrically speaking

I left two RV parks this past month because of low voltage. When I first connected i read 102-104 volts at pedistal with no load. Got refund and went on down the road. The lady at one park ask if I had "one of those things" between my cord and the pedistal and if I did I should remove it because they cause problems. Found a mobile RV tech next to where I was going to park and ask him if there was a better location in the park for power. His answer was there if no place in this park with good power.

RE: How are the walls built in a 79 Itasca?

They are vacuum bonded walls. They have aluminum framing and metal backing for things that may be mounted to the walls and foam insulation. You cannot get inside the wall lIke in a house or motor home with "hung"wall construction which more resembles a house construction.

RE: Ride height adjustment on my '02 Eagle DP

Think it is on a Spartan chassis. If so, Call Spartan and ask them who can do a front end allignment. To do the allignment the ride height must be adjusted first. It all goes together and not everyone who does alignments knows how to do the Spartan chassis.

RE: Need a toyota mechanic

Call "tiera del sol" in Alamogordo NM and ask if they can help. Yes it is 90 or so miles away but this guy is good and he is honest. They are on first street. Don't have the phone number available at this time but know you can find it.

RE: A response to reduce unsolicited live sales calls.

I have asked several callers right away, "what is the name of your company because this number is on the do not call list and I want to report this call properly". So far three callers just said thank you and hung up on me. Has worked very well so far.

RE: trip routing web site

I still use streets and trips. Even though the latest version is 2013 and no longer updated, it is still the best for what you are looking for. Not sure if you could even a "leftover" version but I use it lots for exactly what you are looking for.

RE: Base Idle, Fast Idle, Non Idle - Best Practices Diesel

Call the engine manufacturer and ask them if they have a manual with guidance on this subject. I have had a coach with a Cat Engine and now one with a Cummins engine. They were both pretty clear on the guidance about that which is being discussed. I've read them both and following what the manufacturer said for the engines of those years. They answered all the questions Holstein asked down to idle for three minutes before shutting down from a "hard" pull or run.

RE: Base Idle, Fast Idle, Non Idle - Best Practices Diesel

Many truck drivers do not own the truck, they do not pay the fuel bill and in yhe old days a mechanical diesel could idle all night long and the only thing that happened was the amount of fuel used. The new computer diesels should not be idled more than about 3 minutes after being driven. If for some reason they must be idled longer then it should be at fast idle as stated here numerous times.if folks read their owners manual this discussion would probably not be taking place.

RE: Cost of Toll Thru Indiana and Ohio

Suggest you get the pass. Just came through Houston on the toll road. No pass so we used cash. Every toll booth had about three lanes for passes, one for cash exact amount and one foe cash and making change. The one foe cash with change was always the far right lane. Absolutely a pain in the derrier to get across about 3 lanes as you left the booth to get back in the flow of traffic and not be forced into an exit only lane, the toll booths were at least 6 inches wider than my motor home mirrors leaving 3 inches each side. (That's what it seemed anyway) a pass would have made my white knuckle experience a little easier.

RE: Large slide sticking to seal issue

Hopefully would not be needed every but I'd use it as often as needed.
