RE: TPMS vs Gauge

The gauge is an analog unit. Tomorrow I'll dig out my digital and see how it matches up. Thanks for all the comments. Ron

TPMS vs Gauge

I just got finished checking all eight of my tires. With gauge I'm reading 95 in duals and tag and 105 in front (275/80-22.5 H-rated Michelin XZR3) and my TPMS (Pressure Pro) reads 93 in rear and 102 in front. So, 2 - 3 psi difference is not too bad. Of course I have no idea how accurate my gauge is, so I'm hoping that it is at least fairly accurate Michelin's weight/pressure chart requires I have 90 in rear and 100 in front. So I added 5 lbs (per the gauge) as a fudge factor. Any advice/comments? Ron

RE: Cpaps and dry camping

If you use a genny and hook it to the electric cord from your rig the outlets should work. Will you be camping near people who may object to the genny being on at night? Be nice if we knew if the CPAP has a puck in the cord or is it just a straight cord. What is a puck in the cord? OP, as mentioned above, yes you can use your generator to recharge the batteries, and no, I would not rely on solar panels as you may not always have a nice bright sun...then you're screwed. Personally, I just got a 12v adapter cord for mine and used the rv batteries for power all night. Then I use the generator to recharge the rv batteries the next day during times that generators are allowed. Ron

RE: CRoute 65 from Bakersfield Ca. to Lemon Cove

It's been a few years since I've been over it, but it was an ok route back then. Ron

RE: Buying Online is More Hassle than it's Worth

My recommendation is to buy from Amazon. Their price for that item is probably cheaper than CW's even with the coupon. Ron

Now only will it tell you "if" it can, it will also tell you "how" you can. Ron

RE: Worries about clearances

Not sure anyone here can help you unless you tell us exactly where this is and hopefully someone has been there, done that. Ron

RE: Cell phone use in Canada

I think Walmart offers a smart phone for $45 (US) monthly with endless data. I'm sure you can get the same deal in Canada. AB and BC are some of the most beautiful places on the north american continent. Enjoy. Ron

RE: Sleep Number bed question

When we had ours on our previous motor home, it all depended upon where we were going. If we were going to travel where we would be making large difference in altitudes, we would just deflate the bags to about half. I'm not really sure if it would have made any difference if we had not, but due to the cost of replacing the mattress, we just never took the chance. All it takes is a couple of minutes to deflate and re inflate. Our new motor home came with a 10" foam mattress and we like it even better than the SN....so much so we replaced our SN at home with a foam. Ron

RE: Black Tank Fills Quickly......

Now here's my issue. We'll dump the black when we are packing up to go home and then run the black water flush line for a few minutes with the black valve open. This gets a lot the **** out. Then we'll close the black and shut the flush off. We really like to clean our tanks so we'll have someone stand on the toilet pedal for a few minutes to fill the black up with fresh water again. Filling up the tank this way takes FOREVER! I can't believe how long it takes, 10-15 minutes of standing on the foot pedal to get the black filled up again. Why does it take so long to fill up this way when it only takes 3 days to fill the tank up under normal use? Yes, I understand that more than just water is going down under normal use but the numbers just don't add up. Does anyone else experience this? Wait! I'm confused :? Your title indicates the black tank fills too quickly....but your question is why does it take so long to fill? Ron

RE: rv window awning

I'm with Ivhlog and Clay. I found the exact type, size and color of my existing window awnings and installed all new ones on the passenger side including the rear bath. This allows us to not have to have the large awning out all the time. It was not difficult and I did it by my self with the exception of having my DW hold one end of a very long awning material while I guided it into the slot. I got mine from Carefree of Colorado who made all my existing awnings. Ron

RE: New to Class A are lots of steering corrections normal?

Well, I'll add another possibility for you. Maybe it's you. When I went from pulling a trailer to our first Class A, that dam thing was all over the road. After complaining on this forum, It was pointed out to me that with that huge windshield right in front of me, I was looking at the road much closer than I would be when driving my truck. I was instructed to look much farther down the road, maybe two or three cars ahead of me. Sure enough, that was the problem. Once I started doing that, the coach would track straight and true. If i took my eyes off of the distance, the coach would start wandering again. This is just something that you will get use to after driving it some more. Be patient, it'll come to you. Ron

RE: 2017 Equinox recording miles when towed

A good way to check to see if fuse #32 is indeed disabling the odometer is to turn the key to ACC (where it's suppose to be when towing) and you'll notice that the digital odometer display will come on. Now, remove fuse #32 and the display should go out. I'm not familiar with the RVI Brake 3, but is there any way that it keeps the odometer display active? Again with the ignition on ACC and fuse 32 removed.... connect the brake system and see if the display comes back on. After looking a little at the RVI website, I see no way that this brake system can affect the digital display for the odometer. So, I gotta ask. Can you tell us how you have come to this conclusion that miles are being added when being towed and the ignition on ACC and fuse 32 removed? Ron

RE: 2004 country couch

Boy, that's a big couch. You must have a very large living room. And it has it's own engine. What will they think of next. :W All kidding aside, Country Coach made an excellent motor home regardless of size or year. I don't believe you can go wrong getting one. The ISL has been around a long time and that one is free of the smog additions. 130K is a lot of miles, but I bet it has that much and more still left.....if it has been taken care of. Do you know the previous owner or have any maintenance documentation? Good luck Ron

303 on roof

I've heard of using 303 on fiberglass gel coated mh roofs to prevent oxidation and white streaks. My question is: is one coat enough, or should I put more, and if yes, how many more? thanks, Ron

RE: ERS renewal

Well, sorry to disappoint you Rocky, but they fixed me right up, no problem at all. Just cost me a 5 min phone call..... that I shouldn't have had to make. So, I agree with your assessment on their procedure. I have no doubt you're correct. Ron

RE: Tank techs rx?

I wouldn't put too much stock in you tube videos. Being a senior member, surely you know that water works just fine. Happy trails... Ron
