RE: Refrigerator has quit working on elec./ where is fuse?

do you have a gfi that needs to be reset. The outside refrigerator. plug should be connected to a gfi. X2 - Happened to me a few weeks ago when washing the rig. I left her plugged into shore power to keep the A/Cs running and apparently I shot water into the refer's vent, hitting the electrical outlet and tripping the gfi. Reset the gif outlet upstream, and everything is back to working.

RE: Where to buy Flat Temper DOT Glass replacements

I had luck contacting Atwood directly to buy a replacement window for my driver's door. I think Dometic has purchased Atwood now, but you may still be able to contact them directly and get a replacement window. You might also try here: Lippert RV Windows

RE: 13,5K BTU vs. 15K BTU?

Another thought....if the problem is that your A/C units are freezing up, the above suggestions are very valid...cleaning, sealing, etc. But, you might also have a misplaced or bad freeze sensor. My 15K unit on the front kept freezing up and what I found was that the freeze sensor had fallen off the coil. After finding that last year, I put it back into place and resealed all the inside of the unit where the cold air was getting back into the air flow across the coils..... And, as of this morning at 80 degrees outside with about 85% humidity, (so thick you can cut the air with a knife)... it was a very comfy 70 degrees inside!

RE: Decisions

Thanks guys!! I can drive the 5th wheel have for years just can't back it up. I'm just looking for input as to which class c you'd suggest. Once again thanks for your help Take a look at the newer Class C's that are built on the Mercedes Sprinter chassis. Winnebago Navion, and Holiday Rambler Prodigy are 2 that come to mind. There are others out there as well. We are seriously considering upgrading/downsizing to one of them.

RE: Generator question

I'd go with the genset overheated and shutdown as a result, as the explanation. And, if there's any part of the fuel line that is metal, it may have created an air bubble in the line and consequently a vapor lock. 900ft elevation is not really all that much when considering air/fuel mixture. In aviation, small-plane pilots will start to lean out the mixture when they get up around 2K-3K feet to compensate for the thinner air. If 900ft elevation actually did affect the mixture, the genset would likely have run a little rich and maybe smoked some, but I doubt it would have shut down, and if it's running rich, the extra fuel would cause a cooling effect on the engine.

RE: blocks for leveling under jacks and tires

I'll chime in to say that I've successfully used the yellow lego blocks as landing pads for the jacks, as well as to drive up on when there wasn't enough jack to get on level without lifting the rear wheels off the ground. I've never had a problem with them breaking, although they will warp slightly, and they are really bad about smashing into the ground if it's soft, (it can take quite the effort to dig them out when it's time to go). I left imprints on asphalt once, last year in September in Virginia Beach, in average 95 degree days for a week. But, my square block imprints were among the many round jack prints on the blacktop....and mine had pretty patterns... LOL! The campground should have poured concrete instead.......they readily admit that........

RE: Essential Tools or I sure wish I had brought............

Along with most of the stuff already mentioned, I added a couple of 20 ton bottle jacks and a 3-gallon air compressor with 50' air hose, air tools(impact wrench and ratchet), tire chuck, and deep-well sockets. Able to air up tires and/or put on the spare tire if caught with no roadside assistance available.

Devil's Backbone Brewing Company

In Lexington, VA. Anyone ever been? Devil's Backbone Brewing Company We are planning a trip there in the next couple of weeks, and I'm curious about the route there. It looks to have a few switchbacks once the route gets near the Blue Ridge Parkway in the mountains. Proposed route is: US-501 N, US-29 N and US-60 W to N Wind Ln in South River Anyone local to the area or familiar with those roads in/near Lexington that could chime in would be appreciated! And if you've been to their campground, how was it?

RE: Holiday Rambler Prodigy

....... I would look carefully at the CCC of any MH's you are considering. This info is sometimes hard to find on the MFG web sites. From what I have seen the sprinter models don't have as much as the gas models. Also I would try to find a model with the large pass thru storage bay in the rear, going from a Class A to a small C storage will be a lot less. Good points! I'm not sure how to figure the CCC, but if I combine the listed axle weights at 12,130lbs, and subtract the GVWR of 10,858lbs, I get 1,272lbs left. So I would make a guess that with a full tank of fuel at 29 gallons at roughly 7lbs/gal being 203lbs, that leaves just north of 1,000lbs for people and cargo/food/water/beverage, etc. IS that the right way?

Holiday Rambler Prodigy

First post in Class C, as I have a Class A and spend most of my time over there! My question is..... are there any opinions (good or bad) on the 2019 Holiday Rambler Prodigy? We are considering downsizing, but upgrading our current 1999 36' Class A Endeavor gasser. We are also interested in looking at the Winnebago Navion, so any opinions on that one or similar models are appreciated!
