RE: power awning problem

RE: power awning problem

As two posters have said look for possible spots that cause low voltage. Plug in connections etc. You can also plug a jumper wire directly into the motor from a separate and fully charged battery. If it works then you are reasonably sure the problem is low voltage. It took 5years and finally the factory replacing my entire system which still didn't fix the problem before a tech figured out I had a bad electrical splice between the controller and motor.

RE: GPS stand/mount question

I stuck two small pieces of Velcro on the dash of the motor home and the toad vehicle I put the other half of the Velcro on the bottom of the GPS unit. I just stick the unit on the Velcro and use the suction cup as the rest stand and can adjust the angle at which it rests. The Velcro is black as is the dash of toad. Once the GPS unit is removed and stashed no one can see any evidence it was there. I also have an electrical cord in each vehicle so all I move from vehicle to vehicle is the GPS with the suction cup stand.

RE: is it water damage?

Not sure what kind of wood everyone is talking about. There is wood and then there is plywood and oriented strand wood (osb). If it is plywood or osb, like would be flooring material,that got wet and soft it needs to be replaced.

RE: Towing

I used to tow without an aux brake in the towed vehicle. On one trip I nearly rear-ended a vehicle in front of me when traffic came to a sudden stop, on two different occasions. I got a brake Buddy before the next trip in the RV. Have never regretted the purchase.

RE: leveler down lite came on

Had the same intermittent problem when I had my Winnebago. I was told that when retracting the jacks to hit store or retract (whatever the button is called) and just leave it on until the light times out and not to turn it off. I did that and never had the problem again.

RE: Fuel Cost in Arizona?

If a customer signs the form to get the"refund" when not entitled to it I doubt the clerk behind the counter is the one who it's going to be fine. Guess who it will be.

RE: new tires

Just make sure that any tire you buy is rated for the weight of your motor home. If I was told correctly when I shopped for tires the 275/70/22.5 hankooks were not rated the same as the same size michelins.ie my front tires, for the weight, need to be inflated to 100 psi. The handbooks would have to be inflated to 130 psi. More than the max for the wheel.

RE: Going back to cash

I used to write checks for rv. parks that would accept them. Then one park office was broken into one night. My check was one of the things stolen. I would much rather "fix" stolen cc number than cancel and reestablish a checking account. It's a cc for me from now on.

RE: I'm still convinced these people are crazy.

To each his own. Buying an rv on time makes about as much sense as buying an rv in the first place. It is the biggest and fastest depreciating thing I have ever purchased. But I love our motor home so we have one.

RE: Putting stuff in the black and/or grey tanks?

I too think you will be just fine using only water. That's what we have been doing for years. Haven't had a problem.

RE: We are on our way

Life in an RV is indeed fun. Just be careful about walking around while the coach is underway. My dw does same but only very quickly and on a straight smooth piece of road. Know someone who had to be airlifted from the side of the road and thought to have a broken back when the motor home hit a bump in the road. Turns out she was ok but one family was very scared for a dozen hours or so. I think of that every time my wife wants to move around for whatever reason.

RE: Allison Fluid Level Questions

Per Allison the dip stick is to take a "rough" measurement. And the key pad is to be used for the final and accurate measure. Of course one has to do every other thing accurately

RE: Thinking of downsizing

I don't see anything wrong with your selection. Looks like there is room for one person which is all you would need if proceed.

RE: Air horns not working

Just make sure you are not making the same mistake I did. Had my motor home serviced. Just before I found the air horn did not work so I added that to the list of things to fix/repair. When I picked it up the service manager told me about the switch on the dash to turn the horn on/off. After owning the coach for six years was really embarrassed that I had forgotten about the switch because I never turned it off. I think.our 4 leg fury friend was the guilty one.

RE: Air Conditioner for Class B

I have two 13,500 units in my 39 foot class A. The one in the bed room gets it cold enough to hang meat in there. I would certainly think.It will do fine in a class B

RE: Battery/Alternator problem

Go back to him and ask how many he wants. Tell him they are cheaper if he buys 100 or more and that you will send them as soon as you receive his down payment.

RE: Air conditioner

There is, used to be anyway, a repair shop named triple t or similar in lake havasu city. The owner was a consultant to Winnebago. Never went there but he diagnosed a problem for me while at a rally. Extremely knowledgeable guy.

RE: Battery/Alternator problem

Sounds to me as well that your battery is bad or on I it's way out. I would replace it and bet all works fine. A five year old battery is at or near the end of it's life so on the off chance it does not change anything font think you lost anything.
