RE: Fitness Watch??

My friend told me to try a Fit Bit. I have no personal experience with anything like that. It is just for exercise etc. Ken

RE: This cartoon sums it up for Canadians

Well maybe. " In the not too distant future they may not want to go south." In the near future, end of January Feb with daytime high temperature of -20c (-4f) while shovelling the 2 feet of new snow, I'll definitely be thinking of FL, TX or Arizona. Ken

RE: How much do you really need?

When you are shopping, check to see what is included or not included in the Dry / UVW. Battery(ies). These would also have a big impact on tongue weight. Do different manufacturers use different criteria, use the weight of base unit, NO options. Or do they actually weigh each unit when It comes off the line. There could be several hundred pounds different before starting to load your things. Ken

RE: No water pressure when connected to city water.

If you have good pressure from your pump, but not city water, the restriction would be in the short section or fitting s from the city water inlet to where it tees into the main water feed line from the pump before the first fixture. After that point it's common plumbing to the whole RV, pressurized by either or both sources. Check inside your cupboards from where the city water inlet is to where that line connects with the line from the pump, usually fairly close to the pump. Hopefully just a link or pinched PEX line.

RE: What do you guys use for a BBQ?

Another vote for the Weber 'Q'. I have the 100 or Baby Q, it's size is a good fit for one of my outside storage compartments. No problem cooking for 4. Good heat evenly across entire grill. Ken

RE: Tried towing after new tires & algnment...it did not go well

Same tire with the same tread pattern? same pressures, possible a 'new bad Continental tires,' Does it handle the same without the trailer as it did before. Since you had the alignment done, start at there shop, maybe they can check the tires as well Ken

RE: Floored

Your picture indicates that you have an E-450 not an 'F'-450. When searching the Weathertec site, use the Econoline or E series body style. They make floor mats, but not the Floorliners (extreme lip). The E-450 series cutaway is commonly used as the platform for c-class MHs, the cab unit is the same style, for all, 150,250,350 and 450 cutaways. The full vans have been long discontinued, but the cutaway cab chassis are still being made for the conversion market. Ken

RE: Tire covers

Yes, use them. I have used them all the time when parked, the covers finally fell apart from the UV rays after 8 years. A year later the previously crack free tires started cracking badly. The tires did last for 9 years. They were checked yearly after the 5th year. Ken

RE: Delamination Class A or Class C?

IMHO, most delamination issues are from a lack of good maintenance, A or C-class. Behind the cab, overhead bunk, if there is one on your C, the basic wall and roof construction is the same for each manufacturer. Yes there can be defective materials in any unit, but if EVERYTHING is properly maintained, there shouldn't be any issues. The cab overhead on a C-class does take extra work, because of the potential for more movement and the lack of vertical support. Roof, sides (probably with windows, front maybe another windows and the underside. Ken

RE: Air conditioner supply shortage?

On our 06 Outlook, the generator is an Onan 4000 KY......, Which I think was pretty much Winnebago's standard for c-class of that vintage. What's happening to cut the generator off? Generator still runs, but trips the breaker ON THE GENERATOR! Maybe just a weak breaker on the generator. On mine, the breaker started tripping on a heavier load and finally could not be reset, the breaker handle just flips from side to side, no tension. The generator runs fine but no power because of the breaker. For 12+ years, the Onan would run everything in the coach. Then the A/C started tripping the generator breaker. The Air Conditioning unit still works great on shore power, kept my interior at 70F this past July (90-100F), no shade. Ken

RE: Is this a problem?

Interesting. Maybe you could visit the dealer and have a look (pictures) of similar units/roofs, someone on the forum with the same unit roof could check. If other units are smooth, it might be time to talk to the dealer service dept or check with the manufacturer. Ken

RE: Back cushion support in the forward dining area,mods

I would help if you could post a picture of the area your dealing with. On our old hybrid one end of the dinette was the end wall of the trailer and the other was part of the dinette box. In our current c-class, the dinette the area is a box with supporting end walls from the floor up. Actually the front, (behind the passenger seat) has a hinged cutout so that the passenger seat can recline. Ken

RE: Minimum gate opening width needed for TT parking........

Double check your clearances, clearance after the gate is opened to the eave and how high up is the eave. If it is a straight run at it, should be doable. Don't forget the mirrors on the tow vehicle, they probably will have to be folded in until clear. When looking at the trailers, remember that the box width stated is NOT the total width of the complete unit. It may state 7'6, 8'0 or even 8'6". (102"). Our RV is 8'6" wide plus awning on one side and slide toppers on the other, thereby requiring a clearance of almost 9'. Ken

RE: Theater seating sofa malfunction

Those are usually pretty easy to fix. Flip it upside down and see what came loose. Since they are new the Mfg. should agree to ship any needed parts for free. Good luck. X2 I had a similar problem with a lazy-boy at home. Called Lazy-Boy and they mailed the part out, no charge. Could be something as simple as a nut or bolt not tighten properly when assembled. The hardest part would be taking it out and turning it over. Posting the make of the theater seating sofa, may get a response from an owner with the same specific problem. Ken

RE: Best quality 4 season trailer

For a RV designated as 4 season by a manufacturer, it would depend on what they consider the 4th season WINTER. Winter in Florida, Washington. Minnesota etc. Heater tanks and water systems in some 4 season trailers maybe good for a couple of nights at 20F, minus 20F at night and daytime highs of 10F, Totally different story. Furnace, propane, batteries?? An RV designated as 'light', generally has less insulation or none for the underside, plumbing etc. Single pane windows. Ken

RE: Travel trailer lengths

You would have to read the fine print in each manufacturer. The model number maybe close or 2 or 3 feet different. Some manufacturers may use the actual box length rounded up or down. Some may use the tongue hitch to bumper or spare tire. If in the specs, it should say exactly what points they are measuring. If a fifth wheel, another story. Ken

RE: How long does a 18lb propane tank last you?

To quote my neighbour "Well you answered your own question complete with variables that no one can calculate to any degree of accuracy. Do yourself a favour and take along a spare 20lb'er and keep track of your usage" I have a handheld baggage scale, weight the tank full, write it on the side of the tank. When completely empty, weigh and record that weight. Any weights in between will give you a reasonably accurate guess of how much used or left. Ken

RE: RV carport/shelter

I just measured our 29b and it is 9'6" from the ground to the extrusion at the top of the side. Then there is the sharp curve where the roof meets the sidewall. + 3 1/2", then the fridge vent on the sloped roof + 4". So just in from the side I'm over 10'. Don't forget the ladder going up and over, mine is on the back but realtivley close to the side, max air covers. I would go with a 12' wall, maybe 11' IF the framework went to a minimum clearance of 12'+. That would be the minimum if you are backing under from a level driveway. Ken

RE: Melting wires

Improperly tightened wire connections. Loose causing poor connections generating a lot of heat. Dangerous. If you're not 100% comfortable working with 120 volt AC wiring, get a professional to check it out. Ken
