RE: rv gas mileage

The best thing to do is buy the RV and then tow a vehicle behind it. Towing a vehicle will not affect the fuel mileage that much BUT you will be getting two vehicles from point A to point B so effectively you are doubling your fuel mileage. I'm no engineer but I did stay at a Holiday Inn Express. :B

RE: Recalling recalls

When I had my recall work done, in addition to the sticker under the hood, I received paperwork from the shop just like I would have gotten for any service work. Ask the seller if he has paperwork proving that the recall work was done if you can't find the sticker mounted somewhere under the hood. Mine was attached to a frame member in front.

RE: Routine AC unit preventive maintenance

If you feel that the AC covers are starting to get brittle, it is time to replace them before they blow off. The alternative is to cover them with fiberglass cloth and resin, like I did to make sort of a permanent repair.

RE: Experience at Snider Tire

The problem with ANY service facility is that they sometimes lose key employees and they are replaced with others, who may not share the same good service philosophy. If you go back to that facility in 6 months, things may be entirely different, which may be good or worse. Unfortunately getting reliable service done is always a crapshoot.

RE: Mildew smell

Once you find the source of your smell, fix it and then go rent an ozone generator to remove the smell and kill the mold.

RE: Safe/vault

I have a small safe that came from the factory, but to tell the truth, I hide my valuables in other locations. The safe could be removed in a few minutes with a pry bar so I don't feel that it was really that "SAFE".

RE: Newbie a little nervous about driving a class a

There is also the trick with putting a piece of tape on the windshield that aligns with the highway centerline when you are in the normal driving position. It is a little hard to explain but by using it as a reference, you can be sure where you are in the lane, in relation to the lane marker on the driver's side..

RE: Side mirror camera inop - help needed to troubleshoot

You have two connectors in the side camera circuit. One is probably close to the camera itself and the other is to the back of the monitor. I have had the connector come loose at the back of the monitor before. The camera connector may also have been exposed to the elements and needs to be cleaned of corrosion.

RE: Newbie a little nervous about driving a class a

Go rent a 24' box truck from one of the local truck rental companies and practice with it. Be sure to get insurance. :B Seriously, this will help but your seating position is a little different than in a big box truck as opposed to a class A but at least it will give you some experience driving a large vehicle. The main thing to learn, which the truck rental will help with, is to give you the experience to learn where the truck will fit and where it will not. Think back at some of the unlikely people that you have seen driving large trucks, buses, etc. If they could do it, so can you. :B

RE: Motorhome weighed - Tire Pressure to set

Without weighing all four corners, you have to ASSUME that the motor home is balanced equally when loaded. In fact it may be heavier on one side than the other side and the factory just added a heavier spring on that side to compensate and not cause a lean. I would also weigh the coach with full fuel and maybe 1/2 tank of water.

RE: Not to Happy with Thor or Ford

If the Super Steer track bar bent the frame so bad that they could not adjust the thrust angle, then a LOT of RV owners are in for a huge problem. Dealers like to use any excuse they can find to deny responsibility and correct their own problems.

RE: Not to Happy with Thor or Ford

The problem can be corrected. The issue you have right now is who is going to pay for it. Even an altered or bent frame can be repaired by a competent alignment shop that has the right equipment and the mechanics that will take the time to do it right. Unfortunately, most RV manufacturers, and factory warranty issues are usually done using the least expensive solution, which may or may not work. There are only a few places in the country that I know of will do the job right, but I doubt if Thor or Ford will want to pay for the fix. One shop is Hendersons and another is Champion and a third is Brazels and the last that I know about is Sunshine Alignment. Just remember that you are looking for a shop that will correct "Thrust Angle" alignment problems with a truck chassis and that they have the equipment to accurately measure the before and after alignment.

RE: TV's Control two TV's in living room

Look at the top of your remotes and see if there is a switch that can be moved that says the remote can be used to control different devices. If you have that switch, just set one remote as #1 device and program the other remote as #2 device. Ypu can also try programming the remotes using different codes since more than one code sequence will work with each TV.

RE: Sky Light Replacement

My Monaco skylight was held with pan head Phillips screws. Are you sure that the Phillips slots in the screw heads aren't just filled with sealant.

RE: Slide-out question

Remove the slide lock. Make sure the batteries are all fully charged. Maybe run something along the edges to make sure that the seals have not stuck to the side of the coach so that they are not torn when the slide is extended.

RE: Ac/heat pumps

My main thermostat was mounted on an exterior wall. I took it loose and put a piece of styrofoam behind it and remounted it with a gap between it and the side wall. This prevents it from picking up a false temperature reading and has been working fine since then to maintain a constant temperature inside the coach.

RE: Ac/heat pumps

The leaking around the ducts is what I found on my AC/heat pump as well. I sealed the ducts with the aluminum duct tape and then coated the duct tape with the white latex duct seal which is thick but can be brushed on. Once this duct seal dried, there was no chance that the tape could come loose and it has stayed sealed for four years of bouncing down the road. It is nice to have all of the conditioned air coming inside, instead of in to the roof structure or outside.
