RE: Onan genset stops running--------Fixed

Start by dis-connecting generator fuel line. Mix a gallon of gas with SeaFoam and run generator for 15 minutes from gas can fuel(Have can higher than Genny for gravity feed). Let sit for at least 30 minutes and then restart. It just may be a gunked up carb. Repeat again if necessary. Might have to reset choke. If that doesn't work, then look at other culprits like fuel pump and filter. what do you mean or how do you reset choke? I ask because I had similar problem as the OP, same solution, but my choke has not worked since. It starts fine, runs rough for a few minures, then runs fine. sounds to me like faulty choke

RE: Vanity light keeps burning out

is it 12V? if all else fails, maybe stick a diode in series and drop the voltage. voltage can kill lights

RE: Even new rigs need to be inspected when you get home

it's amazing how the RV buyer needs to be an expert in identifying poor workmanship now a days..... I spent 2 days in my rig at the dealer before buying, gave them a long list of things to fix. Also amazing how fast it gets fixed if they are awaiting closing and payment! Given all the threads about poor initial quality, it's good advice to VERY thoroughly check out your potential new rig! I will say, that on the 3 motorhomes I have bought, once the initial bugs were worked out, the motorhomes preformed very well for a long time if maintained ...... good job OP!

RE: Bad experience buying an RV from out of state

If you are really in Florida and the dealer is really in Silverdale Washington, I understand the dealer ignoring your buying wishes. They obviously had a local buyer ready to buy. . that's the conclusion I came to also......

RE: Bad experience buying an RV from out of state

anyway, I probably could have said "I'll wire money" but didn't, I trusted they were working with me and would help me buy it. I will never call that business again. I'm over it.....moving on Seems you can't do what you said...the last 5 words. :R I have moved on from the deal I'm just trying to communicate to those that post If I stop replying, then the posts start....what happened to the OP, trolling, etc etc.......

RE: Bad experience buying an RV from out of state

maybe I wasn't clear, if they would have asked for money, I would have sent it. All I was waiting for was for them to tell me it was in good condition.

RE: Bad experience buying an RV from out of state

Impossible for any of us to know what really happened. I do know what I would do if I was the seller and had to choose between a guy on the phone and a guy in front of me with cash in hand. if they had a guy in front of them with cash, they could have had the courtesy to tell me and not string me along. they could have said it checked out and wire money, I would have

RE: Bad experience buying an RV from out of state

Well, since there was interest here I'll post about my experience. Maybe the Title should have read: "Bad Experience trying to buy an RV at Clear Creek RV Center (Silverdale WA) from out of state" sorry for the confusion, I didn't buy, I tried to buy. I am looking for an older RV that I actually owned in the 90's. I have a search and notify on RVTRADER. I got an email about the model I was looking for that was available at Clear Creek RV Center. I called the day it was listed and spoke with a salesman. Told him I was very interested in the unit and communicated that I had the model previously, so I knew what I wanted. I was told the unit was just in and looked nice. When I asked about the condition I was told it was being checked out and if anything major was found bad, it would be wholesaled out. I said I wanted it, if it checked out. I called an hour later and asked if I could put a deposit on it and have it mechanically checked out, was told no. Made my final call that day and did my best to express again that I would buy it if it checked out, please keep me in first position. That was a Saturday. I called back Monday morning and asked if the sales agreement could be filled out, was told we could do it later that day. Later that day I get a call that someone had just bought the unit. I called the sales manager and he defended his salesman. I called the owner and was sent to voicemail and never received a call back. I did not get the feeling that "customer orientation" has a highly regarded value. I was pretty emotional (read PO'd!)so I didn't want to post here while emotional. anyway, I probably could have said "I'll wire money" but didn't, I trusted they were working with me and would help me buy it. I will never call that business again. I'm over it.....moving on hope it's ok to post

early 90's C on a Ford e350 7.5l V8

I'm thinking of buying an old class c with an early 90's Ford chassis. I've been rving for 25 years and am pretty comfortable fixing and maintaining the house stuff but not to sure about the chassis. Looking for suggestions on how to assess and maintain and older rig like that. thanks!

RE: Banging when turning

RE: Necessity of a spare?

do you need a spare? no should you get one? depends.... I've been RVing for 24 years and used my spare twice. Glad I had it on hand. Once was July 4 th in the afternoon and I have this "not available" XRV size. Other time was nail found at departure tire pressure check. quick change and on my way. if you have a spare, do have an ERS that will change it for you if you don't have a spare, do have an ERS that will find one for you and be prepared to "possibly" wait longer and pay more....possibly is there a right or wrong answer? no (unless you didn't get ERS!!!):B
