RE: Is Motorhome Magazine any good? GS RV Travel/Saving guide?

I enjoy reading the magazine and continue to subscribe. Not sure how one puts a value on it. I like it, cheap for a magazine, I buy it.

RE: DirecTV DNS issues...

Call Direct TV and ask to speak to someone in the RV section / office. DTV established this section a year or so ago, I assumed to compete with Dish TV, and not everyone is aware of it. I've talked to them a couple of times and they seem very receptive to solving any satalite tv problems one may be having with service in an RV.

RE: Using toad to pull MH backwards

Ive seen similiar same and done. Once was friends motor home that got stuck slightly off road on snow covered ground in an RV park, the other was me in a grass RV parking spot. In both cases the RV park pulled us out with their 4x4 truck hooked to the motor home receiver. Another was an RV that got stuck in a relatevely new filled but inadequately compacted trench where new electrical service had been run to the electrical pedistal. His tow vehicle was still hooked up and his wife just backed the truck while he was in the coach. So unlessthe RV is totaly buried I dont think there is any pronlem doing what you are suggesting.

RE: Should we turn off the water?

If we are going to be gone overnight we turn water off and water heater on vacation. If you have seen the damage a broken pipe can do in a matter of an hour or two you will turn it off. My son had a water hose for his washing machine break while the family was home. He was in his office rest of family sleeping. Ran unnoticed for nearly two hours. Thousands of $'s in damage. A neighbor had a water leak on line to his house while he was gone for a weekend. Undermined the whole side of his house causing big bucks to fix. Just do it and you will never be sorry.

RE: Roadside Service

Had Coach for 15 plus years and have used them 3 times. Once for a tow, once to deliver and install a new tire, and once for a roadside repair. Each was about as good, fast, and satisfactory as one could ask. I'll keep em.

RE: Towing a Jeep Liberty Diesel

Towed our gas liberty for 13 years. Had 120,000 miles when we traded. Probably towed over another 100,000 miles. It was a great tow vrhicle. Traded it when repair bill reached $400 a months for 5 months in a row. After the 13 years, the dealer told me to plan on spending about another $1200 in repairs. That's when I figured I'd spent enough and traded it. Actually miss it a little.

RE: Atwood Levelegs

Same thing happened to me only mine was when trying to retract. I just kept playing with them, recycling them, even shutting engine off and trying from the beginning. Mine finally retracted and did not (not yet anyway) do it again, Once when one jack did come up but the alarm would not shut off, the dealer who was only a couple of miles away told me to verify the jack was indeed up and then told me which fuse to pull to silence the alarm. Suggest you could do the same. If it is really up, find the fuse to cut off the alarm. The early case required the jack to be rrplaced. The recent case has not happened sgain, but Atwood customer service and my favorite RV tech tells me it is only a meter of time until it must be replsced

RE: Cable Tv in Rv Parks

Many RV parks have what I call "RV park cable" or especially "RV park Wi-Fi". That means they have it to advertise that they have it. Only problem is that the cable picture is fuzzy and the Wi-Fi does not allow one to get on the internet. We find this case many times. We have Direct TV at home so we take a receiver from the house. That and OTA TV works great. As far as Wi-Fi we have the verizon jey pack. That way we have internet access that also is secure. as we do baking etc with it. We never rely on the park. If it is there and works so much the better.

RE: Roadside Assistance Towing vs Actual Assistance??

I have coach net and they will tow me, or send tech assist for any vehicle I'm in. Couple months ago I had occasion to call coach net, ended up talking with a tech. He sorted out problem and dispatched a mechanic with the correct part, which he installed and I was on my way in about an hour.I paid for the part and $20 for the labor install.

RE: Toad Tires

If his jeep tires are the original tires yes there is something wrong with them. Probably wear strange, flat spots, noisy, and rough riding. Had them. Dealer told me to get different tires and all my tire problems would go away. I did, they did.

RE: Windshield getting dinged

I made a vinyl cover just like bumpy did. Ptoblem when it rained there was enough space next to the cover water would get into the jeep. Tried a commercial cover that hooked into the wheel wells. Wheel wells were too thick to allow them to fastrn securily so sent it bsck for a refund. Also need to be careful, if you find some ting that works make sure it doesn't rub paint off somewhere which can be another problem. I finally gave up and just tow the toad. Lastly I know people who say the wide rock guard causes the pits and take the guard off and no more damage. I am thinking about to trying this solution.

RE: Location of camp ground

As others have said there is none that close. Been going to the area for years. We stay at Elks (got to be a member) in Westminster or Jefferson County fair grounds. Many others listed in the general area are old and small.

RE: Campground near NFL Hall of Fame?

We stayed at the KOA in Canton. It was the closest we found. I think they advertise as the closest as well. Fantastic little breakfast restaurant in a little town about 4 miles away from KOA. Named something like canal street restaurant. Can't remember name of town but it's very close to the KOA. Also a very nice classic car museum not far from the HOF. We also went to the rock and roll hall fame in Cleveland from there.

RE: Water heater help

Don't forget the pressure relief valve. They don't ordinarily suddenly fail but I had one years ago that did. Worked fine one time out and shortly thereafter on another trip I hooked up and turned on the water and it just poured out.

RE: Jury Duty ?

Near same happened to me. Mine was being on call for duty for six months during a time we had planned a three month trip. I wrote a letter of justification as to how and why this was causing a hard ship as my retirement consisted regular and planned travel. I was released. Since then I have attained an age where I am no longer required to serve jury duty. Best of luck in making things work out for you.

RE: 2011 Fleetwood Discovery 40X

Don't have a discovery, but I use a cpap machine and I do not have a night stand or equilivant that will accommodate my machine. I put a small shelf under the edge of the bed on the side of the "box" that the bed sets on. The bed and matress over hangs that box. I used two shelf brackets and a piece of 1x6 finished like the cabinets. The machine sets on the shelf. I run the hose up to a 3m command hook on the wall near the head of the bed and hold the hose to it with a rubber band. Works great.

RE: Camping World Dealer Prep

No batteries is not too bad. Some years ago we bought a new winnebago that did not even have a smoke detector or carbon monoxide detector installed.

RE: Weatherpro Awning

Jerry, dougrainer is right on as to how to check. When I was talking to the awning tech I ask him if the wire size could be too small to carry the load. He said he knew for a fact that Newmar put a large enough wire and if it was a wiring problem it would have to be a splice or connection in the system from the controller to the motor. The dealer tech said there was only one splice and that was in a box in the wall behind the passenger seat. He checked it and found a bad splice. Put a new splice in and no more problem. This was all after Newmar told me the problem was and sold me a whole new controller and motor. They did refund my money.

RE: Weatherpro Awning

I had same problem, but only when the sun was shining on the passenger side of thr motor home. Awning, when retracting, would stop one or more times and after a short period of time, move again. Awning manufacturer representative finally had the right answer. A bad electrical splice in the wall that would "amp out" and stop. It would "amp out" sooner when hot from the sun. Drove me, consequential the dealer and factory people crazy until Newmar put awning rep on yhe phone with us.

RE: One more satellite question

Direct TV also has an RV department. Can now get monthly service from them just like with dish. It may not be that everyone at direct is aware , but if you call and ask for the RV section/ dept you can talk to them and get answers.
