RE: Help: leaking hot water heater

The water heater bypass valves should be right at the water heater. Mine has 3 valves. Two are right in the hoses entering the heater. The third is between the 2 hoses on the hose side of the other 2 valves. The valves into the heater should be closed, the valve between them should be open. There are other types of bypass valves. All are right at the heater.

RE: Sewer Hose Cleaning and Storing

I do as the others have said, but after I have rinsed the hose with the grey water, I rinse the hose with fresh water. I then hold the hose vertically and compress the hose, starting at the top, forcing any water in the hose to drain out. I then store the hose in the rear bumper like storage tube. I have not had any problem with rusting the hose storage tube, or with odors from the hose.

RE: Dolly Towing FWD Vehicle

I Googled VW Tiguan 2.0T. It came up with several AWD models, so, the Tiguan does come in an All wheel drive.

RE: Dolly Towing FWD Vehicle

I interpreted FWD as Four Wheel Drive. If your VW is Front Wheel Drive, then My post would not apply. But it doesn't change the fact that no VWs are listed in the Motorhome listing. What does your owner's manual say?

RE: Dolly Towing FWD Vehicle

Is your VW towable? I was unable to find any VWs in my Motorhome Magazine towing guides. I tow a 2010 Subaru FWD, only the older manual transmission Subarus are towable and only 4 wheels down.

RE: Battery question

My battery is wired with #2 wire. Not all use wire that heavy. I am assuming that mine uses heavy wire because I have a generator that draws about 80 amps to start. It also depends on how long the battery wires are before splitting up into various branches.

RE: DC clamp meter recommendation

I have had a Craftsman AC DC clamp-on meter for many years and it has always worked fine for me.

RE: How to monitor battery state of charge

I hard wired a voltmeter and ammeter and mounted them in a convenient location. They tell me all I need to know about the battery state of charge. Cost me under $20 at eBay, and a little time.

RE: Has anyone used or made or purchased a Genturi exhaust?

I made my own and it works great.

RE: Electric problem and question

You might also want to get a clamp-on ammeter to measure the current being drawn by the battery. If you do, make sure it can measure both AC and DC.

RE: Gauging the wire....

I think your choice of #2 is good. If you have a generator it can draw a very high starting current. With the improvements you are planning, #2 makes a lot of sense.

RE: How many make park reservations vs find as you go.

If I am going to a destination for a certain event I will make reservations well in advance. If I am on a trip consisting of many overnight stops I usually don't make reservations but I may phone the campground of choice an hour or so ahead of our expected arrival. These trips are usually planned as we go and our destinations often are not known until only a day or two in advance. Holiday weekends or mid summer trips in busy areas may be exceptions and we may make reservations a day or so in advance. It all depends. If all else fails, there's always a Walmart.

RE: What did you do to your Class C MH today???

Looked under the hood to see if there was any obvious damage, then looked around inside to see if there were any water leaks, or other problems, after the winter. Happy to say there were no problems found. Next comes the dewinterization process.

RE: 2 night min stays - negotiable?

Walmarts are a good bet if you are just stopping for the night and then continuing on your way. Just check with the management.

RE: Why did you decide to get an rv?

Started canoe camping with a tent, moved to tent camping, then to a small travel trailer, then a larger trailer which we totaled on the first time out but we only got some scratches and bruises. We decided we didn't want another trailer so we bought our current Class C and have used it for many years. Seems to satisfy our needs. Hope to use it several more years.

RE: charging a toad

I am not familiar with the battery maintainer you have, but I have towed my 2010 manual transmission Subaru as long as 2 days and have not had the battery go dead. Maybe you have some other problem.
