RE: Fisher/Paykel Dishwasher

We called and gave them the code and they told him that it was a loose connection (either water or elect). I think he is just gonna have to have a tech come out and check it. Thanks anyway...appreciate it. Ron

Fisher/Paykel Dishwasher

My friend has an 08 Monaco Dynasty with a Fisher&Paykel dishwasher that he can't seem to get to work. Lights work and we think it's getting water but not sure since we can't find the on/off valve. We've gone by the instrution manual and once everything is selected, the green light on the outside of the drawer stays solid for about 10 seconds and then goes to red and unlocks the drawer. Any ideas? thanks Ron

RE: Gray Water Tank ?

If you have an odor, weather from the gray or black tank, you don't need to add chemicals, you need to fix the problem that's causing the odor. Adding chemicals is just masking the odor and is just wasting money. Before you travel, put a little liquid laundry detergent down the toilet and several gallons of water. The swishing will clean the inside of the tank. You can also do this to the gray tank. A little Calgon water softener added to each will coat the inside of the tank and make it more difficult for solids and other stuff to stick. Good luck Ron

RE: Tow Bar Shields

Just by looking, it seems the "Protect-a-Tow" is basically the same thing as the Roadmaster Defender. Yet, the Roadmaster is more than $100. Any idea why? Ron

RE: Help! Clogged toilet in 5th wheel

Backwashing from the tank drain won't help if it is clogged in the pipe before the tank.. My advice is to get one of those devices (found here) that you connect to a garden hose and then stick into the pipe. With water pressure, the device will expand and seal off the pipe forcing the water down the pipe. Usually the water pressure will push the clog on down into the tank. Good luck Ron

RE: Over hang dragging

There are skid wheels you can put on the back of the "C"... but you wind up lowering the clearance even further. And you remove weight from the tires/suspension and put it on the rear of the frame. Tail dragging is a common problem with the C's with long overhangs. Not really much you can do about it. Larger tires won't make any difference. Ron

RE: Flat wheel towing

I don't think you would want to tow any vehicle with flat wheels....do you? :p:E That said, I'm sure you're referring to towing a vehicle with all four wheels down as opposed to a dolly with two wheels up or a trailer will all four wheels up. Many, many of the domestic vehicles with auto transmissions are capable of being towed 4-down; however, there are few import vehicle that can. GM, Ford, and Chrysler all have lots to choose from. If you have a particular vehicle in mind, you can go to: REMCO and plug in the info needed and it will tell you if it can be towed 4-down or requires a transmission lube pump or a driveshaft disconnect. I noticed you posted in the Class C forum. Please be aware that most class C's are weight limited to a max of 5000 pounds (and some only 3500 lbs) towing. Check your owner's manual for this info. Good luck in your search... Ron

RE: Your Thoughts on Camping with a smaller Travel Trailer

DW and I had a 25' TT and used it for years. Camping in the high Sierras, trips to Arizona, Utah, Idaho, Montana, Alberta, Washington and Oregon. Some of the best times of our lives. Go for it. Ron

RE: Question From a Really Big Guy Maybe You Can Answer

I'm a little guy of 220 and cringed every time I stepped out my motor home as the steps would move downward and creek and groan. I solved my problem by getting a small scissor jack and placing it under the bottom step. The jack (being adjustable) can be raised or lowered due to the steps being at different heights when at different campgrounds/parks. Sometimes getting the coach level requires the steps to be further or closer to the ground. Hope this helps Ron

RE: Towing an automatic car with all 4 wheels on the ground?

Very few automatic cars can be towed 4 down, without going to something from Remco. Mark Mark, with all due respect, this is simply not true. Almost all GM auto trans vehicles can be towed 4-down as well as many Ford and Chrysler products. It's the import vehicles that an auto trans restricts towing 4-down. Ron Yep, I have a 2015 Chevy Malibu that can be towed. That said, It seems even Ford has backed off some models after saying it was ok. On the whole, there are a lot of mid size and smaller cars that can't be without jumping thru hoops or not at all. Mark The only Ford model I'm aware of that they said could be towed and then backed off of was the Escape, and that was only for a couple of years of production. That problem was the transmission that was co-developed with GM that was also installed on the Chevy Cruise. Both now have different transmissions. "Jumping through hoops". Interesting description of pulling a fuse and/or turning the key to ACC. We rented a Malibu last year... great little car. Ron

RE: Aberdeen WA to Port Townsend WA ??

I don't know...if time was not of the essence, I would take the west route up and over the Park and then back down to Port Townsend. Going home, I would take the shorter route. Remember there is a Costco at Sequim, only a few miles from Port Townsend. If you have the time, drive up to Port Angeles and Hurricane Ridge. Ron

RE: Towing an automatic car with all 4 wheels on the ground?

Obviously what Philh wrote was NOT in the Recreational Towing section of the Owner's Manual. Altho, there have been times when my DW wanted me to be in the toad while she's driving the MH.

RE: Had to use GSRA yesterday

My DW is VERY critical of those who run out of gas and I tend to agree. Sorry for your troubles and glad you got it worked out, but next time don't be so hesitant to fill up when you're below a 1/2 tank. Better safe than sorry. So what if you have to stop a few more times. I've NEVER run out of fuel, mostly thanks to my DW. Ron

RE: fuel cards at trucker fueling stations

I don't think the PFJ Loyalty card is the same as the PFJ RV Plus card. Better go to their web site and see what the differences are. Ron

RE: fuel cards at trucker fueling stations

I too pay my Pilot/FJ card by my CC which gives me another 5% discount on all fuel charges. So I get the .06 cents off at the pump, and then the additional 5% off the total price when I pay my monthly bill. However, that said..... I mostly use the Pilot/Flying J fuel stations for the convenience of being able to get in and out without any hassle. The discounts on price is just an added feature as far as I am concerned. Ron
