RE: Still broken

Thank you everyone for your responses. Never thought that the RV might have been in a flood as there would have been signs of water damage in the house of the RV. I know I should have given up on the RV a long time ago but it is so addicting and I am forever hopefully. It has been a rough ride but life can be that way sometimes. It might have been high water that covered the basement compartments and never got up to the floor level in your coach. Even if it was not in a flood, perhaps it was driven extensively in an area where the roads had been salted. This could have been the reason for the extensive rusting of the steel under your coach. If the salt or water has gotten in to part of your wiring system, it can cause intermittent problems that are difficult to find. As I mentioned, perhaps your charging system can be rewired with new wires to see if that corrects the issues.

RE: Still broken

Is there any chance that this coach suffered any flood damage? You mentioned awhile back that you had some bad rusting underneath the coach. If there was flood damage, your entire electrical may be slowly corroding away. The only way to check things if that is the case is to by pass major components with separate wires.

RE: Still broken

Monaco coaches of that era had manual mirror heat switches, meaning they did not automatically turn off. Have you checked to see if the mirror switch is on. As mentioned, has anyone put an ammeter on your coach, with everything turned off, to see what the draw is on your batteries. It will not be zero because of your CO and LP detectors, as well as you radio memory, but it should be less than 1/2 amp.

RE: Fueling at truck stops

There are lots of trucks stops that provide gas islands for RV's That is true plus many fueling stations are easily accessible if you stick with the outside islands. As mentioned, look things over and you will find plenty of places that you can get in to and out of without any hassle. The trick is NOT to wait until your tank is almost empty and your choices are limited. When you get down to a 1/4 tank, don't pass up any station that has easy access. We frequently find lower fuel prices away from the interstate truck stops, even with the Flying-J discount.

RE: Should we turn off the water?

As we found out at our vacation home in Tennessee, be sure to drain the toilet trap or put in RV anti-freeze to keep it from freezing and breaking the porcelain, IF you do not keep some type of heat on. We did drain the upper tank but forgot about the trap. When we got back to the cabin a few months later, the toilet had fallen over on it side when the trap froze.

RE: Should we turn off the water?

We live in Florida and we always turn the water off when we are leaving for a trip. Not concerned about freezing but about water leaks from failed joints/hoses, etc. We also turn off power to the water heater and some other items.

RE: 2015 Itasca Sunstar 27n

These are the lights I used. They are sealed and waterproof so if they sit in water, it won't hurt the connections or leak, as long as the base and wire penetrations are sealed. Mine were set in a bed of urethane caulking. 12 LED sealed electronics clearance lights Be sure that you get the ones with TWO wire input.

RE: 2015 Itasca Sunstar 27n

I had problems with the clearance lights leaking from the INSIDE. Even tho the base was sealed around the edges, water would get under the lens and leak in to the coach. I switched to SEALED LED clearance lights, of the same size, and that solved the problem. These lights are primarily used on boat trailers and do not have a removable lens to leak. Once the base is sealed, problem was solved and they have now lasted for several years. The plus is that they are also brighter than the original incandescent bulb clearance lights.

RE: Gas Mileage

6-8 MPG on most roads. Down to 4MPG on steeper mountain roads.

RE: When To Sell

We stayed at one RV park in Georgia and while we were parked, a really nice DP came in and the young driver set everything up. Pretty soon his wife showed up in their car and dropped of his parents, who actually owned the RV. They were going to stay there for a couple of weeks but they could no longer drive the coach. Talking with the son, he regularly drives the RV to different nearby RV parks and gets everything all set up for his parents to stay in their coach. Sounded like a nice solution to a problem we will all face in the future.

RE: When To Sell

Since there are several places where you can basically list it for sale for free, go ahead and list it now and set your price. If a buyer comes along great. I wish the best for your wife and your next great adventure.

RE: Why spotlights on older Class A'?

I've got a two piece light and remote spotlight myself. haven't used it to spot deer yet.;) bumpy Down in Florida a spotlight is legal to use to kill the wild hogs. Basically it is open season on them at any time of year, day or night. I think Texas and some other states also have zero restrictions on hog hunting so perhaps spotlights may make a comeback for RV/hunters. :B

RE: Sony Monitor XVM-B62

Your monitor has dimensions of 6 1/2" W x 4 1/2" H. The size of the Voyager 7" monitor is 7-3/4"W x 5-1/4"H. This means that if you have room you would have to enlarge the hole slightly to make it fit. It sort of looks like the existing monitor is in a recessed pocket so a new Voyager monitor may sit on top of the recess since it is a little larger in all dimensions.

RE: RV Recalls on the upswing...

Recalls by the NHTSA ONLY involve safety issues that can cause death or injury so more is not better. Other issues like roof leaks or other items that don't work are not covered by recalls.

RE: Defective Ultra Leather on Flexsteel Furniture

Any local upholstery shop should be able to handle the redoing of your furniture. It does not have to be an RV shop. They will also give you a more complete choice of fabrics, do it quicker, and probably do a better job than Flexsteel. I do remember that there was a problem with some of the knock-off Ultra leather material, but as mentioned, it is way out of warranty so you are on your own.

RE: Coach with no slide outs

There is certainly a group of people, even on the Prevost site, that prefer to have 'no slides'. It does take out a cost-element of motors and seals. My understanding is that a Prevost air-seal replacement (maybe Foretravel too if air filled) can cost $5,000 per slide. Sometimes simple is better. MM. My friends Liberty Prevost is a million plus coach with bunk beds for their three kids and no slides. It worked out just fine for their travels. Not sure how it would have worked if the children were teenagers. Then it might have been a little cramped for five people.

RE: rear camera delay

Try this website to find your manual and see what it says about the delay. RVS camera systems My Voyager system has a menu setting to adjust the delay time. Don't know about RVS system so you need to check what the manual says.

RE: Transmission

I haven't heard of a transmission burping out fluid since my old cast iron Powerglide GM transmissions. With them there were a few causes but primarily it was because the transmission couldn't vent and it built up pressure and fluid came out the filler tube after you shut things down.. Are you sure that it was not over-filled with fluid? Did you check the two cooler lines on the passenger side going to the radiator for leaks?
