RE: fresh water tank overflow syphoning tank dry

It can only siphon to the level of the opening inside of the tank. It sounds as though the tube is no longer at the top of the tank, but is now at the bottom.

RE: Winegard Road Trip SDI in motion satellite problems

I have had mine act flakey at times. When it would not lock, I used the menu to watch signal strength and it would find a good signal, but the a few seconds later, it would move and begin the search sounds again. If I was stationary, I could cut the power to the antenna at the switch while it was showing good signal strength (had to be quick) and I had great reception. Of course, it was not functioning as in motion. Later, at another location it worked normallly. I am at a loss to explain and this has happened a couple of times out west.

RE: Thinking of a Mercedes Class C

Having had both a diesel class C and a gas, I can safely say I got only 25% better mileage on the diesel. I can also tell you that maintenance costs on the diesel were about 400% more than on the gas unit. For example an oil change is more than triple on a diesel. The scary part on the Mercedes is the fuel system where some folks have had problems that the warranty did NOT cover. Oil change is 13 quarts but you should only have to do once a year unless running tons of miles and nothing special you cannot do yourself. Really surprised that you can get over 13 mpg on the gas unit.

RE: camera

Assuming that you have internet WiFi and a power source available, here is what we use.... Camera It is inexpensive and we power it with our 110 inverter or standard outlet when available and it is setup on our cell data router in our coach. The phone app receives motion alerts when we set them and you can view at any time from your phone app anywhere.

RE: Is the EV transformation of the market over hyped ?

In 2010 the Nissan Leaf came out with 120 km of range. 9 years later the Nissan Leaf with the same dimensions now has 380 km of range....and it’s cheaper...and faster...and quieter...and much better acceleration. Yep. No improvement at all. Lol. Keep waiting another 10 years.

RE: Jay Leno predicts demise of vehicles running on gas.

Already have brownouts on the coasts at times of heavy draw. No new power plants are being built and renewable only provides a part of existing load when wind and solar conditions are right. Nuclear is a solution but is being socially rejected. Now, add several million charging outlets and all goes to hates. Yes, it will work universally eventually, but not in my lifetime, so not too worried about the value of my internal combustion vehicles after I am dead.

RE: AT&T/Direct TV is Now Losing Over 8500 Customers Per Day

Truth in advertising provides that my experience with RV travel streaming is that it should be called “dribbling.”

RE: Fleetwood E2 "Toy Hauler Deck Replacement"

I'd use exterior .40 retention pressure treated plywood and replace it once. And then add a coat of Rhino liner.

RE: US 20 From Waterloo IA to Sioux City IA

Modern 4 lane controlled access highway. Good to go. The small towns are now bypassed. 50 year upgrade completed.

RE: Feds open 1.4 million acres to hunters and fishermen

One of the primary purposes of many (not all) regulations is to provide an advantage to a large donor to the politician that obtained the advantage for the contributor. The stated purpose is simply the cover story for the corruption. Sad, but true.

RE: no water pressure thru hot water side

Do you have the water line bypass valve to the water heater closed?

RE: Anyone ever use one of these

Works well, precool small bottles in freezer and you get pretty close to a full refill.

RE: I 76 Neb to Denver

Just drove it east bound from Denver to I80 on Monday. I really would not call it wash board as 5ne ride is tolerable, but there is enough surface wear from heavy vehicles that there is a loud oscillation thump in most sections, As was mentioned, the left lane is much better, but they have posted signs on state law requires moving back to right after passing. Although it is not a terrible ride, the sound is very annoying.

RE: split mattress question

We have had our bedroom slide with split mattress for over four years. We do not strip the bed. Just flip up and minimal adjustment when you flip back down. Comfort was good but as one of us is at 270# we added a foam mattress pad and it still folds easily. The split is under the leg area and is not not noticeable even when getting in and out from the bottom. Our longest trip was thirty days and comfort was good. We have not replaced, but I will assume that cost will be higher.

RE: Best motor oil for MB Sprinter diesel engine

Be awesome to see a list of all the oils available, which currently do meet the required Spec. Like this.

RE: Best motor oil for MB Sprinter diesel engine

As a practical matter on current model MB Sprinter specs that meet/exceed manufacturer warranty requirements purchase Mobil 1 #120760 5-quart jugs of European Car Formula 0W40. It is available at Walmart for approx $4.50 per quart in the 5-quart jugs. Keep your receipt and the two quarts left in your third jug for the unlikely event that you must provide backup for warranty claim. Hard to find a better price/solution but, of course, there will be one hundred other opinions and non-relevant comments. I simply want to provide one simple, relevant reply to your request.

RE: Gas prices.

they blame gas prices on shortages which I think is BS since the east coast doesn't seem to have that problem this year. it's all on the shoulders of the oil companies. they raise their prices at the drop of a hat and they always make sure they have a hat to drop. they are crooks 100% Yes, there are crooks. The tax hidden in gasoline in CA is about 75 cents when you include underground storage tax, state taxes and federal tax. The supplier pays thousands in transport tax, fees and permits to get it there after it is found and refined. Have to think about who are the crooks.

RE: Harley Battery Drains When Traveling

I pulled my Harley from AZ to FL and back (and other long trips) and never had a battery issue. Could it be your battery? Your 2011 does not apply. As was stated prior, the manual enlightens transport mode for this very reason.
