RE: Death Wobble Continues ....

My research into the death wobble issue started when I experienced it with my Equinox. What I found was many thing 'can contribute' to a DW but the MOST OFTEN culprit was the power steering in the vehicles. In the Equinox case, it only occurred in the 4 cyl models. This was because it came with electric steering assist instead of hydraulic like the 6 cyl models. After my complaint to NHTSA, GM offered a solution. Instead of pulling the interior fuse, they switched it to the one under the hood. This allowed the power steering module to remain energized and functional while towing. Unfortunately, it also leaves all the other electrical items functional also. This means you should install a battery maintainer in your vehicle while towing to keep the battery charged. IMO, a minor inconvenience. While waiting for GM's 'fix' I installed an eye bolt through the floorboard just in front of the driver's seat. A bungee hooked to the eye bolt to the bottom of the steering wheel worked perfectly. However, GM's fix has cured the DW and I've had zero problems since using their new directions. As I understand it, Jeep has a similar power steering setup and the recall fix was simply a bypass cable for the steering module...hope this helps...Dennis

RE: Coast to Coast east to west

On the other hand, if you avoid CA you will also avoid some of the most beautiful Country on this Planet. $3 or $4 is really not going to make much difference in your retirement plan. I have traveled CA S to N and N to S and I have bitched the entire route. Well, the entire route expect for the places I parked along the way. CA coast is something that should not be missed. The OR and WA coast (in my opinion) is even better but there is nothing about our CA travels that I have ever regretted. If you can't afford the fuel you really can't afford to RV! To each his own. The ONLY beautiful places along the California coast is from Hwy 1 and that can't be seen from a 42' coach. Driving a 42' coach thru Laguna, Newport or Huntington just ain't gonna get it, IMHO...Dennis

RE: Coast to Coast east to west

If you are foolish enough to plan your travels through the Golden State, expect to pay $4 for fuel and with a 42' coach some of the roads are restricted, such as Hwy 1, along the coast and 49 through the Gold Country. Here is the map for reference....Dennis

RE: Would you switch from Class A to Travel Trailer

Most Class A's, at least the ones we looked at, were better insulated and had more amenities than any comparable travel trailer. Depending on where you will be traveling, this might be an issue. Yes, you can take potty breaks in either rig, but it's more comfortable in a moho if it's raining, snowing or hot like Yuma in the summer. That's whats great about America, we have choices depending on our likes and needs.....Dennis

RE: Centeroid fuel sender location 2002 Monaco Windsor?

As Doug mentioned, you have to turn the screw very slightly to make an adjustment. Be patient as the needle won't move right away. Adjust slightly then wait awhile before checking again. Otherwise, you'll think you have it right and next time you start the coach it'll be off again. The screw is difficult enough to find and reach. I used a mirror to ensure I had the right screw and could see what I was doing....Dennis On edit: My adjustment screws are on the driver's side, on top of the tank...D

RE: Trip report

Once upon a time,their was a time when I kept trip reports some what like your doing. Guess just got lazy, and went to way side. Yep! Now, after 100000 miles on the clock, I simply enjoy the trip and the weather. Only thing I do watch is fueling OUTSIDE California. Advantage of a large fuel tank....Dennis

RE: Black tank

Wasps are notorious for building their nests in the vent tube. If your toilet 'burps' your vent is clogged. Could be a birds nest also. You'll have to take your hose up on the roof with you and 'backflush' the vent tube. Use caution on the roof especially if it gets wet. You don't want to fall. The vent tube feeds into the black tank so either watch how much water you send down the pipe or leave your black tank handle pulled. If you leave it closed and fill the black tank it will flow out the toilet into the bath. Another mess you'll have to clean up.....Dennis

RE: Been a while

I put in a couple new TVs and an in-dash GPS unit. RV890 this winter. Write ups in my blog listed below. Going from a 32" 2ton unit to a 30 ounce Smart TV was the best upgrade. This year we are getting new day/night shades.....Dennis

RE: cabin water pump

Your city water hookup has a check valve inside which allows the water to flow IN and not OUT. That valve is failed, failing and/or is stuck. Whatever the cause, it needs to be replaced so as not to fail again in the very near future. Easy to replace and pretty cheap. Less than $20 buck either from Amazon or Camping World. I've also seen them in the RV section at your local Wally World....Dennis https://i.imgur.com/b8jRukul.jpg

RE: New again, remind me

More info. If you're going to sit in one spot for 6 mos then move to another spot for 6 mos then a fiver is your best bet. If you're going to travel a bit but travel light then a gasser is good. But, IMO, if you're a serious traveler who enjoys comfort, go with the diesel. You had a Monaco, they're still around and still build a quality coach. Not too many do that anymore as many brands are being sucked up by others. Tiffin, Newmar etc. I'm partial to Monaco of course but my coach is older too although upgraded a bit to 2021's standards.....Dennis

RE: Foremost insurance

We had Foremost when they were writing full timers insurance. They dropped us without warning when they quit writing those policies. No claims. There are only a few left that offer full timer insurance. We went with Geico and now have Nationwide. Nationwide has been good so far. Again no claims, so we will see. Insurance is a personal thing so opinions will vary greatly. Bad credit will raise your rates.....Dennis

RE: Bugs on Windshield

Still don't think they're LOVE bugs. Just sayin. When those critters die, they emit a small acid type residue. You don't want that on your PAINT for very long either.......Dennis

RE: Replacing water filtration under Rv...help

Depends on your water preference. That is a two stage water filter made by GE. Easily replaced but takes some patience. Whether you keep it or not, you'll have to fiddle with it. The fittings are standard 1/2 inch so you have several choices. 1. Cut the screw fittings off. Get two 90 degree shark bite fittings and a short piece of PEX and connect all of them together. 2. Buy a two stage replacement filter assembly and change it out. Obviously the second choice is my preference. You'll have to do your install under the kitchen sink which will be just as much of a nuisance as doing choice two, maybe more. There's more to water than just drinking. Sediment etc gets in your sink faucets and gums up your washer.......Dennis Replacement 2 stage water filtration system

RE: Fixed Frameless window removal/install

Is there a reason you do not want to tell what Year and brand /Model motorhome you have? Is there a brand on the inside frame hinge area of the Door? Doug Doug, maybe he just added it, but it's in his signature....Dennis

RE: Gas RV Front Table Ideas

Well, I asked that question because I can't see why one can't simply put their stuff ON the doghouse. Are they now too low to be convenient. My last gasser was a 1984 Pace Arrow. That dog house was plenty high to hold whatever I wanted to put on it. I made my own 'cover' out of oak and put cup holders in it.....Dennis

RE: Gas RV Front Table Ideas

Not that it matters, but why would you need a table between the seats while traveling? Playing cards while driving is distracted driving. :) Anyway, depending on what the intended use is for will determine what might work for you. If you're simply looking for someplace to put 'stuff' any cabinet shop can make a nice top for the dog house. Easily removed and can be finished to match existing cabinetry. If you want to go on the cheap, get a piece of plywood, cut to size and finish it off with material to match the interior. 3/4 ply would be heavy enough it wouldn't move around and/or slide off.....Dennis

RE: Tow Bar Suggestions

Ready Brute from NSA is my choice. It stays mounted to your coach, if desired, and incorporates a braking system built into the tow bar. Changing out the clevis allows it to be used with almost any base plate.....Dennis Ready Brute That "kit" includes EVERYTHING you need, including the base plate and the break away line.

RE: Bought a new coach & what about address

For now I'd use the campground's address. That may change in the future but for now that's exactly what it is....Dennis
