Because nice folks went out of their way to suggest the route vs the Interstate and I thought it proper to report back to them and future travelers how it went. Is there a problem doing that? Nope just couuldn't make a connection, glad it worked out for you.

RE: Suburban oven will not lite

I think most RVers use the stove for storage! Not,it's for cookies, cakes, sticky buns, pizza, home made brad & rolls. You get the idea, wife loves cooking & baking.

RE: Magnetic Cam Locks???

I replaced all 6 cam locks with keyed alike for $21. I wouldn't want that odd magnetic key in my pocket. I had a cellphone that had a magnet in the speaker that attracted metal particles in my pocket from my metal working. Don't get it near your debit/credit cards either, kills the strip on the back.

RE: Magnetic Cam Locks???

Spray the existing locks with penetrating oil. Wipe them clean, then "fill" them with Vaseline. Never use oil it attracts dirt! Graphite Powdered Lock lubricant available at Lowe's, Home Depot, Walmart, & most auto parts stores. Use the right product for the job, only a few dollars.

RE: Flying J Dedicated RV Lanes

Just don't think all FJ RV lanes are created equal. Quite a few feed directly towards the c-store, then a fight with idiots getting lotto tickets, five hot dogs five different ways,etc. Haven't fueled at FJ for a number of years. Then add the RV drivers that can't drive, no thanks.

RE: Plain Black Wrapper

Municipal agencies around these parts have gone with stealth / ghost markings. All the lights hidden, graphics are very dark gray against black paint. Still counts as a marked vehicle. Becoming common nation wide, the "ghost makings" make it a marked unit. Under statue to charge eluding, it has to be a marked unit. I was a motor cop a couple years and people would drive by and look back like was that a cop? KZ1000P 4 cylinder Kawasaki and our helmets were Gold/Green.

RE: Replacement AC fan motor very weak.

My first thought was is it getting enough power? Low voltage = low speed?

RE: AC 20amp breaker trips mid day

Replace the breaker, they wear out & they are cheap.

RE: Puzzling problem with Dish

My Dish & Wally specifically says RG8 cable. I have found lots of RG6 but still looking for RG8 as I have the same issue. Works fine direct and maybe going trough the factory wiring. I use on of these to bring it trough a window. https://www.amazon.com/Valley-Enterprises%C2%AE-Cable-Doors-Windows/dp/B001WAPIRW

RE: Flying J Dedicated RV Lanes

quit using truck stops and getting ripped off. Get the gas buddy app and check prices, filled diesel today @ $2.41 FJ $2.99.

RE: Suburban oven will not lite

The thermocoupler needs heat to let the gas through. Make sure the coupler is in the pilot light or hold the lighter under it while pressing the knob in, in the light position. Hold for a minute or two to keep it lite.

RE: Cross Winds

That's one of the pluses, 5W handles better than a TT all the time. I live in wind country and have pulled in 40MPH winds. You also need a truck big enough to handle the 5W, way too many trying to pull 5W with 1/2 tons. Yes they advertised they can be pulled by a 1/2 ton properly equipped. That properly equipped 1/2 ton will cost the same as a standard 3/4 ton. I will guarantee you will never hear someone say they have too muck truck.

RE: siding repair parts

Search for J skirt for the metal & Icon Technologies for the fenders. I did one on my last 5W took a couple hours. I pounded the damaged fender flat for a template. On mine there were some hidden screws under the trim strip. I was able to carefully open it to get to the screws and bent it back when done. That was a Jayco but they are all similar. CW wanted $1300 and a day. Long story short that went down hill and I ordered all the parts needed for $250 + $250 shipping. The J panel was 10 or 12ft and I had them cut and ship to save over size shipping. I think I could do it in an hour now. Good luck.

RE: Fifth wheel brakes

when were the brakes adjusted last? Mine don't lock but you definitely know they are on. You don't say what the TV is, built in controller or after market?

RE: Surge Protectors, 2 or 1 or none

Even plugged to 50 amp your using one leg = 30amp. Mines the opposite 50 amp & at times I only have 30 amp available. The one leg supplies limited power so I am only able to run one A/C or the Micro wave, on 50 amp it will all run at the same time.

RE: Diesel Fill up

Why truck stops? Local FJ $3.05 Murphy's gas station $2.42. Fuel after your camped or take the 5W, few stations you can't get in. I take it one step further, 80 gallon aux tank + 40 in the truck, 1000+ range, I choose where & when by price. Using the current price if I take on 80 gallons I save $50.40 https://i.imgur.com/WZMSGuWl.jpg
