RE: Propane tap on curb side

Ya that's true, I should try it first. Just didn't know if I wanted to spend money on the hose if it wasn't going to work, but I think I can borrow my buddies. About the hose, I bought a no-name hose and it did not work so I went to Lowes and bought a Weber brand and it worked just FYI JimR

RE: Crazy RVer Gets Arrested

Drugs? Alcohol? 5150? Or you just can't fix stupid? What is 5150? It is also the name of an energy drink in California that was pulled from the shelf of a popular supermarket because some people complained that it was making fun of those that were actually 5150. :S Also while responding to a med call it is the phrase that will slow you down just a little so you can get a good look around before you get there. jimR

RE: Propane tap on curb side

I am assuming that your tap is after the regulator just like mine and I run my Weber with its regulator on no removing it or modifications and work very well. As I understand things the RV regulator runs at 11 inches of wc and some BBQ regulators will run at a less pressure at 5.5 inches of wc. Try it first and see. JimR

RE: Blue OX Customer Service - Is this Fair ?

Although I use Roadmaster the bar you have is a good tow bar and I agree with the others that you need to find out why it bent then if you can get it cheaper else where do that. JimR

RE: Lack of "Assistance" from Road Side Assistance

and your going to let them re work on the unit.? not me. Camping World installed the "Invisibrake System" on my Jeep---that is why I went back to them. I went to Camping World and they fixed my Jeep. The connector for the "6-wire plug, male" was "wet" due to the rain we had. This connector is located on the front of my Jeep below the bumper. The "fix" is to silicone the rearside of the connector to prevent water from entering the connector. Thank you to everyone for all of your posts. Sorry but that does not sound right as I understand what you wrote, the plug for the toad for the lights and such got wet and stopped working?? The fix was to silicone the connector to waterproof it. I have a Jeep too but I do not have the brake system you have so I could be wrong but IMO that connector will breach and you will get moisture back in there. My plug is on the bumper and it gets all types of water and mud and junk from the road from off road and from running in deep water not problems yet. Just questioning the fix from a distance so there could be something there but does not sound right to me. JimR

RE: Water hook ups

All four pump switches are off. The light on the panel shows pumps is off too. This was the first thing I checked. ;)If the pump is off why is it trying to run? Also 4 pump switches???????:h JimRI have 4 pump switches also.4 switches in my coach alsoPretty normal for 3 or 4 or even 5 in a 1 and 1/2 bath. Kitchen Toilet Room Vanity, Water bayI've got a bath and a half and I only have 4 switches. One in the master bath, one in the half bath, one by the kitchen and one by the pump outside. Where's the fifth one? I guess if you count the silverleaf system, I've got two more but those are on a tablet screen. So I guess you could say I have six. OK OK you win I get it. Learn something every day and lose it all the following day. JimR

RE: Won't start, step funky, recliner slow, light blinks

If I read it right it's your steps and a few other things not working. No one has thought to mention that your entry steps and generally other power options are connected directly to the chassis (engine) battery not the coach (aux)batteries. If plugged in to 110 it will usually only charge your coach batteries and 12v converter. It will not charge your engine battery. Put a separate battery charger on your engine battery. If will accept and hold a charge great. It may take a couple of days depending on the type of charger you use. If not, time to buy new engine batteries you let them discharge to low and they won't recover. If you park your rig for long periods of time it helps to install a battery tender to your engine battery and run the power cord back into the coach and plug it in to a 110 outlet. This way you should never have a dead engine battery no matter how long you camp in one location while plugged in to shore power or running the generator. Ditto this and sorry I did not make it clear in my first post that the CHASSIS batteries may not charge when plugged to shore power but the house batteries will. JimR

RE: Engine dirt

That is tire dust thrown off by your and others tires as you go down the road you throw a little bit of tire, kinda like drying the clothes and you clean out the filter that is a little bit of your cloths. JimR Why does the tire dust accumulate only on the right side of the toad? Because that is where most of the tire dust is. Yea I got to thinking about this and I think it may be a crankcase vent.

RE: Won't start, step funky, recliner slow, light blinks

I have had it plugged into 110v the whole time. I understand what you are saying about cleaning and checking the batteries (and I'll certainly try that...but shouldn't the batteries be charging off of the power coming in from the 110v as well? What's the best way to check to see if that is happening? Also, I tried using the button to use the "house batteries" to start the coach and that didn't work either...but the batteries were running the slides, lights, etc. just fine... Your batteries may not charge when plugged in I had a neighbor in a Winnie that was plugged in but his batteries did not charge and he had to run the motor he said it was supposed to work that way so I guess it. Depends. At 7 volts on a 12 volt battery the battery is dead and all the things you said did not work were from one of two things a bad ground or dead batteries. JimR

RE: Snakes

Anyone come across snakes hiking in the southwest? Being from Michigan I have never seen them, but now in the southwest they are out and they scare me when hiking. I came within a few feet face to face with a copperhead a couple days ago. There is Copperheads in Arizona?:?

RE: RV Plus card & Swipe & Save

I'm writing because I simply haven't used this yet. Not sure if this is a Good Sam question or PFJ. I have an RV Plus charge card through PFJ. I've also registered my Good Sam club card with PFJ "MyRewards" program which is their loyalty point program. My question is does the pump ask for a loyalty card when filing up using the RV Plus card, specifically in the truck diesel lanes? Thank you, Todd NO once you put in the charge card you will be asked for the PIN number that is how it works for me no second cad required or needed JimR

RE: Dogs and ticks while traveling

GoTo The Vetrenarian to get the medications that will be safe for your dog or cat, just getting something and administering that may be fatal if certain condions exists. Also not all is fail safe I used an anti tick and flea to my pup but he still got a tick that I missed in his ear and he got sick from that bite and almost lost my little pal. Have fun JimR

RE: Michelin tires

Just want to ride I put new Michlen tires on my RV and my ride is smooth level and does not wander and in high winds holds the road much better the the Goodyear G670s that I had on prior. JimR
