RE: Water Pump switches not working

I just replaced mine in my Imperial. It was located behind my monitor panel for the tanks etc. The way I found mine was by working all the switches and found the clicking noise coming from behind that panel. I ordered mine from Northwest RV. It was $44. My local rv dealer wanted $120

RE: Disaster Strikes

Suspect #2 has that look that says wasn't me I am a much better driver then that. Joking aside, I am sorry this happened to you. Just another life experience and a good thing no one was hurt.

RE: RV Blows Tire Causing Roll-Over Video

To me it looks like he was on cruise and by time he reacted it was gone. It didn't appear to slow down until he hit the barrier.

RE: Cowcatchers

Most of these Moose bumpers are made out of Aluminum,so they remain light. They are hinged on a half inch bolt on each side. Strong??? They may stand up to a deer hit but in my opinion they are there for looks. Beauty is in the eye of the beholder,because I think they even look dumb. I went to work for a company and the truck they gave me had one of those things on it and it was a huge pain in the --- when you wanted to lift the hood. First you had to let that thing down and then put it back up after, and oh did I mention the rattling that drove me to cut the thing off.

RE: Replace Cooktop With Unit With Oven

I changed our in our Imperial and it was not that bad.We had drawers under the cooktop and I just removed 2 drawers and put a piece of oak facing under the oven and it looks like a factory install. The gas line hooks up at the back behind the rear burner on the cooktop. It was the same location on the oven. I reconeected it and checked the connection with a soapy solution and no bubbles no leaks. Hope that helps.

RE: GM predicts what driving will be like in 1976

Due to the lack of skills presented by many drivers I have seen, I think alot of the cars out now are self driving. Too bad there are so many accidents as a result.

RE: Havasu River Resorts?

Are they the same sales people that sold the London Bridge to Lake Havasu? Watch out they are good!!

RE: You just cannot fix stupid

Years ago I was listening to an interview of a park ranger on the radio. This was in Jasper National park. The ranger said the dumbest thing he had ever seen was a dad putting jam on his two little kids hands in effort to get a bear over to lick their hands so he could get a picture. We travel through there often and there are usually big bull elk grazing beside the road with their huge racks. Countless times we have seen people trying to get close enough to get a picture of them touching these animals.I can't get away fast enough as I do not need to see the results.

RE: Floating floor - Who installed them?

I put laminate through our coach and like above left the gap around the edges. It has been five years and it has seen -35 to +95 temperatures and no problems. I have my recliner chair bolted down through the laminate and no problems.

RE: Seattle to Calgary

Coming from Seattle you will cross into Canada a one of 4 border crossings.I would recommend the Sumas crossing that will get you to Hwy 1 faster without alot of traffic. Hwy 1 is 4 lane to hope BC and then turns to 2 lane through the Fraser Canyon. If you take the Coquhalla hwy #5 form Hope it is 4 lane all the way to Kamloops and it re connects to Hwy 1. There are some high mountain passes but it should be no problem this time of the year. Hwy 1 will take you through Banff National Park which is very scenic before you get to Calgary. I hope this helps.

RE: Norcold Fire Repair Time

I almost had a fridge fire but it was not Norcold's fault. When I had the recall done they found there was no flue installed up to the vent on the roof. All the wood right up to the top is charred black. I had the recall done just after I bought it and it was 8 years old. I would say it was a coach manufacturer oversite. If it would have burned it would have been blamed on Norcold.

RE: Flat Tow Vehicle Equipment Recommendations

You will get a ton of opinions on this matter. The best advise I can give is to shop around and make your choice. There are several different brands out there. Myself I use a Blue ox tow bar and the base plate for the car came from Night shift auto where I purchased the ready brake. It is a mechanical surge brake that is simple and inexpensive, and works very well. Blue ox is a great company that stands behind their product. I am sure the others do as well butI can't speak for that.

RE: Need Spare Tire & Rim

Any tire shop that deals with big trucks will probably be your best bet. They usually have a spare used rim and tire that will work well for a spare and not break the bank. I carry a mounted spare and have never needed it but I will keep on carrying it.

RE: Will these scratches buff out?

Buy it, put on a pair of goggles, paint been there and done it on the back, and drive the heck out of it. You don't have to worry about scratching it and all that washing and polishing. When you park at Walmart you won't have the problem of someone parking too close.

RE: wipers on 2007 newmar dutchstar

A couple years ago we were parked next to a 07 Dutch Star and the fellow told me the wipers were a real problem on it right from new. Maybe Newmar has a fix?
slickest1 04/09/15 11:08pm Class A Motorhomes

Yes it is rust on the drum that is the problem. After they break free, when you apply the brakes the first couple times while driving you will usually hear a bunch of squealing. After a couple applications they are back to normal. Some types of brake shoe are more prone to this than others. My coach does this quite often.

RE: Migration north

We live in the Fraser Valley, and when we got home they had just cut the grass in our complex. We have flowers blooming in the back yard. A couple tulip just opened up today and a Rhododendron is set to bloom. It is raining though but will clear in a couple days.

Reminds me of when I left my accordion in the back seat of my car, and forgot to lock the doors. When I came back, there was another one sitting beside it.... It could be worse! You could have found Lawrence Welk sitting there beside it! Ha Ha!!
