RE: Fridge WOES......Again

If there is a fan it should be attached to a thermostat on the cooling fins directing the fan to come on at 130 degrees or at least around there. If it's not then the heat can't rise and escape so the freezer will work but not the fridge. Thermistor should read between 8-10000 ohms after about ten minutes in the ice. To make sure the board works just unplug the the thermistor from the circuit board and over about a day at most the fridge should become a freezer. That will prove the circuit board is functioning. Just went through this on my parents fridge last month. These instruction were in the dometic book and online for troubleshooting. There are checks for the heating elements but I never got that far. Replaced the fan with two, (the factory bracket will accommodate two in my parents) and works really good now. Oh and double check the door gaskets too. Unbelievable how much cold air you lose when the door opens.

RE: Fridge WOES......Again

Does it have assist fan or fans in the back outside of the fridge to move air? If they burn out it can breathe and while freezer will be cold the fridge will not. Just a thought.

RE: Venom

I agree with the switches. That's a lot to go through just to turn on a light or water heater. We wanted a 3911 but to order one would put us into late sept and then the season is all but over for us so... We took the owners demo at the dealership. I've been making note of the things that need attention and have been trying to do some of the stuff myself. I hate taking these things back.

RE: Which 5er would you suggest?

I just moved to a toy hauler from a 38 ft. Big Country and I think the triples make for a better ride. Really, if your already spending the money on a toy hauler what's a little more for a couple more tires when it comes time to replace. I just bought some g rated tires online for under 130 a piece. Gonna try to get them thrown on this week.

RE: Upgraded to sailun s637 Tires, huge difference from towmaxes

I've got six Sailuns sitting out in my shop waiting to be put on my new toy hauler. Unfortunately I just burnt the heck out of my hand today and I think they may have to wait a while.

RE: IRS after me ...... again

I have been getting that IRS call about once a month . If things work out maybe I can pay them off , because today my wife was left a message that said that there were two steel boxes of U.S. currency being held in the Customs office at " the Texas Port Of Entry " in the USA .All we must do to receive these steel boxes of currency is forward $850 to cover freight to Florida . Maybe one of you guys in Tejas can run over there and pick it up for me ? Ask if you could just go pick it up as you are planning a trip the Texas. My dw is in IT Security and she always a cute way of dealing with them. Most don't know what to say when threatened with logic and realistic facts. They get quiet and soon go away. Microsoft people called once over Christmas and she asked which computer as we have several. Then went on to say they are all MAC's so how does this change things. Can almost hear the head scratching.

RE: Venom

It appears we are going to find out. Settled on the 4114tk that the owner of the dealership used as a demo a coulee of times. We went through it a week ago when we were out in South Dakota and it seemed nice. There are a few changes I would like though. Don't know why KZ put the sewer dump handles outside under the frame. I'll have to move them. And the sewer is way under the slide when extended. It can be cut and moved forward. Apparently this is the only one in the country. A dealer lists one in AZ. but they have no pics either.
mudmaker 07/30/16 11:51am Toy Haulers

Anyone have any experience with these? Have been researching toy haulers my local dealer is selling these now. KZ rep even took some advice rep the dealer and made a new model with their ideas in mind. 4114. Looking hard at these and I see a few things I would change but am willing to consider others though. Just would like an independent opinion on the Venom line from someone who may have real experience. Thanks

RE: Improving Air Flow in Roof A/C vents.

I think it made a decent amount of improved air flow this morning. Easy fix. I also put some tape I the end vents to help divert airflow down the vents. And I cut the flow in the bathroom by half. It's always way cold in there anyway.

RE: Improving Air Flow in Roof A/C vents.

Hey I discovered mine has the same leaky areas. Guess I'll do a little taping in the morning.

RE: My sink is falling

Ahh didn't get to Lowes today. And didn't think of it when I was at Menards either. On the list for tomorrow I guess.

My sink is falling

Got home from a three hour drive and parked it in the home base spot. Got out to start putting things away and drying out from having to pack in the rain and my dw come in and says the sink is sagging. We have marble countertops and an under slung metal sink. Apparently the silicone lost its sticky and the thing retainer clips didn't help out much either. I think the marble sink covers are just too much weight for our rough roads. Guess I'll have to find a place to store them during travel. So now, the doors are off, shelf torn out, bottle jack installed and sink reglued into place. Just need to make a couple more retainer clips that are a little beefier than the originals. Should be good to go for next weeks trip to Rushmore and Wyoming. I hope.

RE: Is my butt saggy?

Try moving the hitch forward. Looks like it's pretty far back right now. Watch the clearance between truck bumper and trailer when doing so.

RE: G-Rated Tire Recommendations

Four new Sailun tire from simple tire.com shipped for $607. That was a month ago. Mounted them myself. I'm satisfied.

Just ordered a set from Simple Tire and mounted them myself. Really impressed so far.

RE: Colorado Campground - Beware of Cancellation Policy

I reserved two spots for three nights at Rafter J and they wanted everything up front with no refund for cancellation. About 65+ per night per spot. Very high traffic areas can get high prices and high cancellation fees. Someone will always fill the spot I guess.

RE: 2015 Chevy/GMC 2500 Diesel or Gas?

My 3500 srw just got up to 26.9 mpg empty in perfect conditions. Certainly not going to complain about that. Pulling it registers around 11 mpg. Just can't get over the fact that a half ton with all the bells and whilstles is more than my 3500 with full features. Nuts. Think I'm missing the sun roof and 20inch wheels. If your looking at a 2500, just go all the way to a one ton. Such a little jump and piece of mind. Think the difference with a 2015 2500 vs 3500 is 15300-17k pulling a fifth. never heard anyone complain about too much truck.

RE: 235/80/16 tires what let tires did you go with

Just mounted up four new Sailun S637 tires this morning on my camper. Went back to an st tire with these as my Yokohama LT tires were almost four years old. No sense in chancing it. I was impressed with the weight and my friend who drives otr for a living says they are a good buy. Everything I have researched says the same.
