RE: What determines battery cable size?

If you have a generator you may want larger wire than #4. I have a 3000 watt generator and it can draw 80 Amps to start. The OEM used #2 wire for the battery connections.

RE: I have a hearing problem!!

I bought a 19" TV and it has terrible sound. I had an old set of speakers and I plugged them into the TV. The sound is fine now.

RE: rv camping in Canada, different than camping in the US?

You can get to Labrador from Quebec, cross Labrador, then take a ferry from Blanc Sablon, QC to Newfoundland. In my photo collection are pics of me going the opposite way. You are right. When we were in Newfie we went past that ferry and decided that on our return trip south we would take the ferry to Labrador. Unfortunately, when we got back we found a tanker had caught fire in the harbor and the ferry dock was closed until further notice. So much for our trip to Labrador.

RE: Guidance with installing TV in my 2009 Majestic 28A

I looked at the screws I used. The screws that hold the arm to the block are fairly heavy and go thru the block and into the wall. Nothing special about them, ordinary wood screws with a hex / Phillips head. I just don't want to go through the wall and have the screw come out through the exterior wall. Mine had several screws that went into the wall. I removed one and measured it. That was the limit that I would allow screws to go into the wall. If you remove some of the trim you can see how the wall is constructed and use the appropriate length screws. The wall in your RV may or may not be the same as the wall in mine.

RE: Guidance with installing TV in my 2009 Majestic 28A

I have a Four Winds 28A. I mounted my 22" TV to the front of the coach, just behind the driver's seat. Here is a link to a post I made showing how I installed it. Link Hope it helps. Thanks a million! Just what I needed. Really appreciate it. What kind of screws did you use? I used ordinary wood screws. I don't recall the exact details. I can look in the morning. There were several screws in the wall so I looked at them to determine the length to use. The block of wood was screwed on to the wall then the arm was screwed on to the block.

RE: Dingy braking - do, did, or won't

I have always used a braking system since I acquired my motorhome. I have to admit that there have been times that I was glad I had the extra braking.

RE: How long does a water filter last?

My filter in the house lasts anywhere from about a month to about 4 months. It all depends on whatever is in the water, the amount of water used and the filter. I don't have a filter in the RV so it never has to be changed. BTW I drink the water in the RV.

RE: Snow white - but snow weight? (How much on roof)

I have had well over 2 feet of settled snow on the roof of my RV and have not had a problem. I agree that you would probably do more damage shoveling the snow off than the snow will do.

RE: Class C extended chassis, Thoughts or your experiences

Pretty much what everyone else has said. Mine is a 28A but is actually about 31' long. We tow a Subaru, about 3000+ lbs. Never have noticed any problems with it.

RE: rv camping in Canada, different than camping in the US?

We want to rv in Newfoundland and Nova Scotia next. We have visited Newfie 2x and loved it, but we didn't take the RV. That turned out to be beyond our budget. I lived in Newfoundland for 24.5 years. Traveling by rv should be less than any other way, except motorcycle and tent. Something is out of kilter here. I certainly have heard of places where the facility owner, would say, 'use our parking lot'. Of course, this plan includes taking the ferry Port aux Basques to N. Sydney both ways. The Argentia costs lots more. & there are ways to be careful about gasoline cost too. Check Public Utilities Board for fuel prices: http://www.pub.nf.ca/orders/ppo/fuel/Fuel_161208.pdf Memorize this url http://www.roads.gov.nl.ca/cameras/default.stm There are lots of related travel links. Still, I should say my reason for moving away from NL upon retirement was to get away from the ferry cost. It's a very big source of outmigration, especially for those with grandchildren living 'away'. :C My comment about the cost was based on the cost of the ferry to get to Newfoundland. At the time the Canadian and US $ were about the same and the ferry would have cost us about $600 each way as I remember. As it was, we had a delightful time staying mostly at B & Bs.

RE: Leveling

I have used 2 x 10 wooden blocks with tapered ends and 3 different lengths for many years with no problems. Never have seen the need to buy plastic blocks. I just drive up on the blocks.

RE: rv camping in Canada, different than camping in the US?

I have never booked campgrounds in advance unless I was going to a special event and wanted to be in a certain place on a certain date. We have camped in Canada many times. This past summer we took a tour of New Brunswick in mid to late August and never booked in advance and never had a problem getting a site. We usually stop traveling about 3pm and often make a point to spend Friday and Saturday in the same CG.

RE: How do we get started?

Lots of good info here. Here is a vote for towing a car with a motorhome. Be aware that not all cars can simply be towed. Some can be towed 4 wheels down, some others can only be towed on a dolly while others can only be towed on a trailer. Before you choose this option, make sure you have the right car. Also, you would be surprised how quickly a small RV becomes too small, especially with kids.

RE: Wet Awming

Just started enjoying my Dometic awning after replacing the fabric. But noticed it is wet almost every time I open it. Not sure how it gets so wet inside as I try to roll it up only when it is dry. How do other folks keep it dry or is it just the nature of it. Are you saying your awning gets wet when you roll it up dry, and it doesn't rain, then when you open it, it is wet? Or, if it rains while it is rolled up, it is wet inside? Mine gets wet inside when it rains, not if it doesn't rain.

RE: Short Term Storage

I had mice in my MH stored here at home. They even made a nest out of fiberglass they took from the oven insulation. I crawled around under the MH and closed all the holes in the floor that I could find. I also made a little cover to block the power cord entrance since the MH is plugged in while in storage. Since I did that, several years ago I have not had any mice. I keep a loaded trap in it with fresh bait, but haven't caught anything and haven't seen any sign of mice.

RE: electrical

Your 2008 Dutchman Probably has a Magnetek-Parallax single stage converter. They are known for being poor. If you do find it is bad, you would be wise to replace it with a modern Progressive Dynamics, or similar, multi stage converter.
