RE: Outdoor "mudroom" to prevent cat from door-dashing?

We traveled with two cats for several years and had a screen room add on for them briefly. It was not secure enough to hold them no matter how many modifications we did to it. The best thing you can do is start retraining your cat NOW while you are still in a house. It can be done but it will take a lot of effort on your part. Our cats retrained to waiting by the door for us to put their leashes on before we took them outside. I'm not saying it will be easy but better to do it now while still in a house then later when you may be in a trailer. It took us about 4 months of work to retrain ours.

RE: STRANDED - no power to slide controls or jacks

on ours, the jacks down indicator light comes on with the jack fluid is low. It can be just a very little bit low and the lights will come on.

RE: How do you begin to plan for extended road trips?

Another post made me re-read your original post looking for the answer to this question - What do you consider an extended trip? I should have asked that first before replying. My original reply was written with the idea that an extended trip is at least three months if not 6 - 8 months. In my experience, the shorter the trip, the more likely folks are to make reservations.

RE: Where's this brown water come from?

Just to add a little context to your question, is this new rig, or a new to you rig (used) or one you have had for a while with a new problem?

RE: How do you begin to plan for extended road trips?

lots of questions. I would recommend planning to get reservations for major stops where you know that you really want to be close to x, whatever x is for you. For us it is National Parks. For instance we may have reservations for 6 days at a National Park but not have reservations along the way. It is fairly easy to find campgrounds if your requirements are flexible. We have reservations for July 9- July 15 for a place approximately 1600 miles away but nothing until that. We try to only move from place to place during the week days instead of the more popular weekends. For non destination stops, we use casinocamper.com and passport america and campgroundreviews.com. Sometimes we travel 250 miles in a day, sometimes up to 475 in a day. We also use WalMart's about 10-15 nights a year if we are just going from place to place and it makes it easier to stock up on supplies.

RE: Class A automatic leveling never works!

we are the original owners of the coach in our signature. I used the automatic level function exactly twice in nearly 12 years and 97,000 miles. The automatic level raised the coach way too high. I have learned how to use the MANUAL level function per the instruction manual. Much easier and faster than waiting and watching the automatic function groan on and on while lifting at least one tire off the ground.

RE: Propane fill for parked motorhome?

google extend a stay. Many folks use them and have the local propane company deliver a tank to their location.

RE: Help with electrical please

My first suspicion is the age of the battery. It is 3 years 8 months old. It has been hooked to shore power it's entire life while at home. Is it a bad thing to leave the trickle charger on all the time? Zulu I thought you said that the outlet you were plugged into wasn't working? If that is true, depending upon how long that was, it could definitely cause a totally dead battery with a premature death. 3 years 8 months isn't really old for a battery depending upon the type of battery.

RE: Help with electrical please

Update! I pulled the battery and put it on a charger. It totally fried it in about3 hours. Smoke was coming out of it! Bought a new battery and installed it today. Now everything works! It certainly was the battery. Thanks for all the input. Zulu make sure you monitor your new battery until you know for sure why your old battery died. Unless you have been checking the battery as it charges with a tester, you still don't know WHY your old battery went bad - it could have been the bad outlet, or your converter/charger didn't charge the battery or maybe your battery just got old and used up.

RE: Water not working at all through city, but it's on outside.

Maybe something like this could help.It sounds like maybe something is may have gotten put down the drain that shouldn't be there. Something that moves when pushed by the snake but that didn't actually clear out.

RE: Battery Question

It depends on year and model of the Monaco. Knights/Dips/Camelots usually did not have a BIRD type system. The upper models did. On the MAIN Circuit Fuse board in the LF storage there is a place for the BIRD system control to be installed if not installed from the factory. It is a small circuit module that plugs into the existing harness and allows the Coach charging system to charge the chassis batteries. Doug Also worth noting your manual may be incorrect. Our 2007 Monaco Knight Manual READS that our coach will charge both the Chassis and house batteries when plugged in to shore power but it didn't charge the Chassis batteries as it came from the factory. When I called Monaco back in 2008 and questioned it, I was told that they were aware that the manual was incorrect and that that feature was only included on "high end" units.

RE: Help with electrical please

check for bad battery - everything that works is 110 volt, everything that doesn't work, works off of 12 volt. Maybe your battery went completely dead while it was plugged into the bad outlet. take the battery to have it load tested at any auto store.

RE: Rear View Camera

We tried a Tadi Brothers product for 2 years but had random intermittent problems with it. We now have a Rear View Camera and it has been trouble free. clicky

RE: staying in 5th wheel

do you own the property in florida or do you rent? You may want to use that address as your official address particularly if you own the property but a lot goes into that decision. Health insurance costs, property taxes, state income tax costs, vehicle insurance costs, etc. All of those vary depending upon your official home of record address. The home of record decision is more important than just where you mail gets sent.

RE: Linville Falls, NC to Fancy Gap, VA

Original poster here - we ended up staying 7 days in the National Park Linville Falls Campground, Site A06. There were really only two sites that a rig of our size fit into A06 & A09. Really enjoyed it. We came in on US 221 North from Tom Johnson's down in Marion, NC. By the time we left, we changed our plans are decided to head for Greeneville TN. Departure Route: North on Blue Ridge Parkway for less than 5 miles Cut over to Hwy 181 North Left on US 221 Right on SR 194 which later joins US 19E to US 321 to I-26 Departure route was a much more pleasant drive than the drive in on US221.
