RE: Other State Registration

I believe you may have a problem if you register in a state other than where you reside and from which you have a drivers license. Used to be and I believe still is if you get stopped by police in one state, are licenced in another, and registered in yet another (three different states) you are illegal. Two of the three must be in one state. I almost ended up in jail late one night. Was licenced in illinois, lived in Colorado, registered in Texas. Was while I was in the service and while I was wrong, it kept me from jail on a Sat night of a three day weekend. Also your state will be missing your taxes and may come after you with penalties and fines if you get caught.

RE: Scary New Credit Card

Eventually all the cards in the US will have the chip then we will have caught up with the rest of the world. We are in a transition phase now and every business that accepts a card has to change equipment to utilize the new card. Every individual that has the old card will get a new replacement card. During the transition phase businesses have to be able to accept both. How would you like to be in charge of this nation wide program?

RE: Heating Empty Water Heater

I had to replace the heating element in a 2001 journey because I turned it on with no water in it. Had to remove the water heater to replace the element. Sounds like you have same situation

RE: Heating Empty Water Heater

It quit working on electricity just a few minutes after you turned it on. Ask me how I know.

RE: What has happened to Winnebago Quality?

Yours sounds like a 2001 journey I bought new. Many same type items plus a few others. I had the motor home for five years and put on 8ooo miles dedicated to warranty work including one trip back to the factory for and entire 39 foot long sidewall replacement. At five years winnebago was still doing warranty work covered by the one year warranty so I have to give them credit for that. I talked to other journey owners in every RV park we stayed in and I never found another owner with problems like ours so I figured every now and then they just screw up. I had 2 adventurers before the journey and all were pretty much trouble free but the journey finished me off of winnebago.

RE: Hovenweep National Monument

We did exactly as NCWriter recommended. We thought it well worth the drive.

RE: Alamogordo - how long and where to stay

For 43 foot coach, Boot Hill is a good choice. Realitively new so is a big gravel area with not trees, but this is a desert climate so not unusual. Nice park and nice people. If a member of BPOE, the Elks lodge has full hook up, some 30 and some 50 amps. Desert paradise RV park a mile or two east of Boot Hill doesnt look bad either. I live here do have not stayed or have friends that stayed there. Also a KOA, but will have smaller spaces than any of the above. If you stay a Boot Hill and see all their list of things to do and see around this area you will soon find you cannot see all in your two days......Howard

RE: Towing weight limits

I would not continue to tow either the truck or the trailer. However I would for sure weigh the truck. You may well find it weighs more than you think. The weights of many (most or all--??) Are based on the standard vehicle with out any options that are on/with the vehicle. Assume the truck is a 4x4, may have skid plates, it's own hitch, etc. These things may not be included. Also I am aware of folks that exceeded limits and were fine for awhile but eventually hitches cracked and other anomalies occurred because they were over stressed. I would not tow as you are.

I heard a story of an RV club that had a member that was 90 years old. They were saying he just bought new tires for his RV.

RE: What to do with an old Nordic Track

X2 on donating it. That's what we did with ours.

RE: Can I run 15,000 BTU air cond with RV plugged into my house?

If it is tripping the 20 amp house breaker obviously you cannot run the coach acnd without tripping. You can take a look at what else you may have on that circuit that could be disconnected and maybe reduce the load or more than likely you will have to get a qualified electrician to see what is required to install at least a 30 amp circuit.

RE: What did we do wrong

We have 2 daughters that were as you describe at about the same age.they are now 45 and 41. Both have good steady jobs, make decent wage, one a great wage and one about to get her MBA, and both have the work ethic I did and thought they should have had at a much younger age.They matured-finally. Hopefully yours and other will also. Maybe it just takes longer today. Have a son started and quit college 6 or so times. As an adult got an electrical engineering masters degree aND a great job. Hang in!!

RE: How are these Air conditioning voltage numbers?

Should be ok down to 108 volts. Any lower shut it off. The best any electrical company will guarantee is 120 volts plus or minus 10%. That's the standard US wide.

RE: Automatic Satellite finding a Satellite but no signal

When you first connect the TV to the satallite Direct TV receiver you should get a picture on the TV that says Looking for satallite or have a large "D" moving around the screen or something equilivant. That means the TV and sat receiver are communicating. If nothing like that they are not communicating and you cannot get a sat. Assuming they are communicating then you must have the sat receiver and TV both set or tuned to a station that can be received, which is how the antenna knows it is receiving a signal, before you start the antenna to search. Sometimes I have a hard time getting set up and "find" the over air station first, then set up everything as I listed above and make sure sat receiver is set for either channel 3 or 4 depending on which is not used over the air, then on the TV do and "add a channel before I start searching for the sat. sometimes go through a lot of trial and error but eventually find everything. te

RE: Inner Dually Valve Stems

Sometimes the best way to learn is by trial and error and just plain old fashion making a mistake. Hopefully when one learns that way it is not too expensive. I think you got a great coach by the way. Hope you enjoy it for a long time.

RE: Weighing Motorhome

Getting the weight of each axel and dividing by two for the wheel weight is better than nothing or guessing. If you do that I would air up based on that and add 5 pounds. I add 5 pounds anyway. Before I got individual wheel weights that's what I did. After I got the individual weights the reguired air pressure did not change.

RE: Weighing Motorhome

Check with moving companies. They all have scales. Most are willing to weigh you. You will need to check and see if you can jockey the coach around on the scales to get the 4 corner weights.

RE: Now for the jelly

Try Smuckers "black raspberry blackberry jam". Fairly new and not available some places. It is sweet but actually has lots of flavor. Many are just sweet with unidentifiable flavor.

RE: leaving for 2 months??

We cover every drain with saran wrap including the toilet bowl and tank tops. I guarantee water will evaporate out of every tank and drain if not covered with wrap or oil. First time we were gone for three months everything was dry including the tank flapper seals as well the seal between the tank and bowl. Water ran through tank and some right out onto the floor. Not what anyone wants to come home to. Last thing we do is shut water off and cover every drain.

RE: Chicago Campground or hotels?

If you want to look around the city I recommend that you arrive there and do so the day before you pick up the motor home. You cannot drive around down town Chicago.
