RE: Help finding nightly parking for our caravan

Wherever you decide to stop, make sure you tell them what you're traveling with so there are no surprises upon arrival....Dennis

RE: Air Conditioner Performance

using a commercially available sun screen on the exterior of the windshield. these screens block up to 95% of the heat but still allow you to see out during the day. good luck and safe travels. Good advice. But this is what I used and it was a bear to get off. Maybe I should have used the spray on....:W....Dennis https://i.imgur.com/alrTwJXl.jpg

RE: Voltage or Ground

Relay AKA solenoid usually one that looks something like a Ford 'starter relay' technically the electrical coil and the plunger/activator rod, are the solenoid it called a relay because it is a complete device that has electrical contacts for controlling the on/off of electrical power (power control relay) a Sprinkler valve, has solenoid coil that opens a valve for water to flow so if it has electrical contacts , it is a relay and if it controls opens/closes something else mechanical it is called a solenoid, air, water, hydraulics etc..door lock plunger .. Too bad you didn't answer the question, rather than try to impress us. Not only did he answer the question, he provided additional information so everyone can understand the mechanics of things. That is how we learn and why we can get great information off this forum. That is, if we look for it. Have a great day.....Dennis

RE: Replacement Fridge or New Cooling Unit

My 1200 failed once. Had the Amish unit installed. It failed a year later. Removed the 1200 and it went to the dump. Installed the Samsung and couldn't be happier. Best mod done to the coach. Did it myself at a campground in Gulf Shores. Took me two days with the tools I had. Would have been shorter if I had the right tools. Below is a link with pictures and narrative.....Dennis Samsung Fridge Install

RE: Trailer wiring

Has any one of you actually cheecked the plugs that connect the trailer to the motorhome, 80% of the time theese connectors fail due to the vibration of the cable, the screws that hold the wires are minuscule and most technicians do not solder the ends, they just jam the wires on and tighten the screw, this also has the added benefit of severing the wires and the end result is a loose wire. Also take into consideration that theese connectors are open where the cable enters and water does get in, corrotion will take over and you loose connectivity, the other culprit is actually done by the person(s) vigorously either yanking on the plug and cable or moving up and dow and sideways on the connector and spreading the female receptacles in a manner that connections are either intermittent or non existing. I start at the connector on the trailer and then on the tow vehicle, then the trailer and finally the tow vehicle, I solder the wire terminals and protect both connectors with liquid rubber to prevent any water or moisture from getting in, I have not had an electric failure between the RV and the toad in 17 years. navegator Finally, someone who gets it! OP stated he had power at the TV receptacle and the trailer wiring was ok. That ONLY leaves the connection between the two. Use a meter or 12VDC tester and go from there...Dennis

You didn't say who the manufacturer is. You might get more pertinent answers if YOU answer this question. Just sayin....Dennis

RE: Interesting article: Tesla Semi Electric Motorhome.

"The company also argues that with a price of $180,000 for the 500-mile version of the Tesla Semi, it’s actually not expensive for a large luxury motorhome." LARGE LUXURY motorhome? I must have been looking at the wrong article. That thing is uglier than a plumber's crack on a Sunday morning. For a single guy on a weekend trip maybe but not for me and the missus. Imagine the electrical spikes with a few of those plugged into the grid in many of the RV parks??? Someone's gotta pay as we continue to fight for the fake climate change. Buy one of those puppies and the campgrounds will charge you extra for electricity as they should. There goes your $100,000/yr savings. (Who comes up with these numbers? Musk? We already knows he lies through his teeth) I'll keep my fuel guzzling, pollution belching diesel, thank you.....Dennis

RE: Air conditioner repair near me

Get up on the roof,(Be sure to take a can of silicone spray with you.) remove the four phillips head screws holding the shroud on and remove it. Find the squirrel cage and look at the shaft where it comes out of the motor. You'll most likely find a good amount of dirt and lots of rust. Clean the shaft and squirrel cage of any debris and dirt and liberally apply the silicone spray. Have someone turn on just the fan, no A/C and see if it quiets and/or stops completely. If it quiets, turn everything off, clean the shaft and cage again. Spray again and try it again. These A/C units are probably the most neglected part of our coaches. They should be lubed just like your coach, at least annually....Dennis

RE: RV park rates

Hi Western, It is run by the community. I think the intent is to offer accommodation for family members who come back home in the summer time (when the living is easy). There are no services in town except for a post office. There may be a place to buy groceries. Have a look on google maps with satellite view: 50.937951, -105.689746 I stayed in a lovely grassed park last night. There are 12 sites with 15 amp power, flush toilets and showers for a fee of $10.00 per night. I was the only camper.WOW, that sure proves that having a low price really brings in the business. Every so often we get a thread about how if there were parks with $10.00 a night rates people would flock to them and no longer need to use places like big box parking lots, rest stops, truck stops and boondocking. Somewhere there must be a Walmart executive panicking over the lost business we so often hear about that is driven by them allowing free overnights. I wonder if the owners of that $10.00 park have considered franchising their concept. It sure looks like a winner. Whether it's pertinent to this thread or not, it's nice to hear of alternatives. Especially if we're just 'passing thru' and don't need frills. That said, IMO, and it's just that...the LAST line says it all... I stayed in a lovely grassed park last night. There are 12 sites with 15 amp power, flush toilets and showers for a fee of $10.00 per night. I was the only camper. This pretty much indicates why a $10/night concept might not work.....Dennis

RE: F-53 tires

Manufacturers recommend INSIDE inspection yearly after 7 years. This means the tire has to be dismounted to check for separation 'issues'. Given the hassle and cost of dismounting etc. I simply budget for replacements every 7 years. YMMV..Dennis

RE: To DP or not DP

Yea now If I could only get under my coach to get to air line so I can install that cylinder I got from you. Isn’t that what air bags are for? :B Dave Dave, Suspect you are joking. But, actually, not funny. Some newbie may indeed think that the air suspension alone gives them safety to get under the coach. Newbies: NOT. Air system fails, you do not want to be under there when it happens. Safety stands are the answer. AGREED 100% ! I disconnected a 1/4" air line to replace a solenoid. I was shocked at how fast the coach dropped. Fortunately, I was above in the generator compartment. It was shocking to see the coach drop! Please use SAFETY STANDS or don't get under the coach. Your life may depend on it....Dennis

RE: Motorhome drinking oil

We'll keep watching the dipstick over the next few thousand miles as we continue our trip. And someday when my body feels nimble, I might crawl under the motorhome to have a look at the undercarriage. Thanks for the additional comments. All very helpful. Just a comment. You're "ASSUMING" the dipstick is accurate. Many, if not most, are not. Next oil change, verify the 'lines' on the stick are accurate. If not, simply correct it with a file....Dennis
