RE: Need windshield installer in San Diego area

Insurance is paying for it minus the deductible.....Not the issue.....Issue is: I can take it anywhere I want, I just wanted to get a good recommendation rather than a glass company that rarely does MH windshield's.....My insurance company has a recommendation but it may not be the best, just the cheapest.... In talking to Newmar they were very emphatic about getting a company that does MH's and one-piece windshields pretty routinely...The customer service guy I spoke with said they see quite a few issues with MH windshields put in by a company that may do very well on cars but the MH is different...Many not put in properly leak or the tech is not equipped to handle the larger size of the MH w/s....

Need windshield installer in San Diego area

Have the MH listed below...Rock from truck, w/s is beyond repair....Driveable but needs replacement.....I will be in the San Diego area mid-Nov and wondered if anyone has a recommendation for getting this done.....I have called around in the SD area but really would like a rec from someone with some firsthand experience.....Getting these large one-piece windshields installed correctly is sometimes a bit tricky..... Newmar recommended one of their dealers in the area but I had a bad exp there couple yrs ago and will not go back.....(Holland RV)...

RE: Purchase Out Of Area &Warranty Issues

I live in NE Nevada most of the year and just bought a new Dutch Star in SoCal......Never gave a second thought to warranty issues after talking to Newmar before the sale......Anywhere I want, they will authorize warranty work, within reason...... Example----power water hose reel went out.....Did not want to take it to Twin Falls for warranty work.....Called Newmar--they said give them about an hour and they will call me back....They called back and they said take it to the local Freightliner dealer here in Elko...Newmar shipped an entire new reel to FL, they installed it and within an hour I was back in business....All under Newmar warranty...That is service (and clout too... to be able to talk a large FL service center into fixing something on the coach side of a MH under Newmar's warranty)......

RE: Looking for boondocking near Bishop / Big Pine

Go a bit south to the Lone Pine area and try the Alabama Hills.....I have camped all through the Eastern Sierra area and this is my favorite..... Much much movie history in the area.....The Movie Museum in Lone Pine is worth a visit.....

RE: RV Storage Garage

I would add a sump/drain in the middle of the bay......Lifesaver if you wash the MH indoors.....Assure whoever does your concrete/flooring to angle all sides slightly towards the drain....I built a 50x40 and this drain is the best addition I added during construction.....

RE: Changing Insurance to State Farm, your input requested

Had State Farm for many yrs......I recently got a quote from another highly recommended company that specializes in MH's and they were 800 more per yr than I am paying for the MH below......A bit more coverage for that price but not 800 dollars worth..... I get the multi-car discount and the thing that keeps me with SF is not the price but the ability to walk into the office of my agt and talk to her......

RE: workhorse or tritan

There was a significant improvement in Fords in 2006 (both engine and trans).........If you are debating something in that time frame, might be worth it to take this into consideration.......

Good service

Going home recently..gravel road in the rain..All is fine on the gravel but I cut a turn too sharp and stuck in the mud. Called Good Sam and within an hour largest tow truck on the road showed up and winches me out...no charge of course.. I was in an area way out in the country and never expected such quick and hassle free service...very happy..

RE: A new home for the big beast (and us)

Scott---- We left Fallbrook last May for Elko, Nv.....after 31 yrs SDPD....Could not be happier....Built our RV dream garage first (50x40) with an apt, then the house..... Will be back in SD area periodically each winter, it does get a bit chilly here sometimes compared to SD..... Overall, could not be happier with our move.......More property, better house, dream garage--all for much less than we were paying in SD.... Good move....

RE: US 395 CA to Canada

Did the trip 2 yrs ago...Only San Diego to North Oregon...One of the most scenic trips we have ever made.....We both loved it....Weather (rain every day in June) finally made us break East to Yellowstone.....One day we will finish the trip all the way to Canada...... The road and accommodations are great.. Suggestion: If you do it, stop by the RV park in Likely, Ca......Well worth the 2-3 mile trip off 395........Middle of nowhere but worth it.....

RE: Where to add oil on my Generac Guardian RV 6500? Pic inside

I have a 5.5 Generac in my MH and the set up is just as yours.....Dipstick in the bottom one, I fill at the top one (quicker)....I think they made many of them this way due to diff applications, etc......

RE: Interested in Elko, NV or Jarbidge areas

I live in Lamoille...A few RV parks in the Elko area, prob the best is Iron Horse right in town.....Many miners living full time in many of the parks..I have found these are generally a good bunch of people and more than helpful and courteous.... If you have the time, go up the 13 mile paved road (toad recommended) to the end of Lamoille Canyon, out of Lamoille....Great hiking and worth the trip.... Angel Lake, out of Wells, 50 miles east, is worth the trip....Makes a good day trip if staying in Elko but there are a couple CG's on the road to the top..........Great hiking, great lake/fishing and 2 nice campgrounds......Some will say that the CG at the top of this paved road adjacent to Angel Lake is not accessible to RV's....I have seen 40' MH's at the top CG and have taken my MH in my sig to the top CG many times......It is steep though and you need to be aware that it is just as steep going down.. Cannot speak of Jarbridge....Wild Horse is nice, driven by but never stayed there......Metropolis ghost town is near, debatable if worth the trip.... Elko has many events in the summer....They have a good website that lists them....

Question ref water pressure -----UPDATE/SOLUTION---------

Ref the below...Thx for all the input....Went back to square one today and found I had 2 press regulators on the hose....Did not see the one at the MH....Had one at the pedestal and one at the MH......Took them both off along with the in-line filter and all worked fine..Filter back on and all worked fine...One of the press regulators back on and the problem appeared....Took this one off and put the other one on and all fine.... Hooked the bad press reg up to the pedestal and put a pressure gauge on it...turned the water on and pressure up to 45 lbs then slowly bled down to zero.......Bad pressure regulator.....Did the same with the other regulator and pressure up to 45 or so and stayed there....As it should.... Never had a pressure regulator go bad like this.....I learned something..Again, thx for the input... *********************************************************** Have the MH in my sig....Plugged into full hookups for the past month..About 2 weeks ago when turning on any fresh water source, there started a momentary delay in getting water (3-5 secs), then it comes on as normal....(using water hose)....Yesterday the delay increased to 30-45 secs, then it came on as normal......This morning it is not coming on at all.... Turned the water pump on and all is normal off the pump.... I removed the in-line press regulator and filter hooked up to the hose at the pedestal and it still does the above.... Is there an in-line something on the MH side of the hose, where it goes into the side of the MH?? Suggestions where to look?? Thx
