RE: How important is a refer thermistor?

I would replace it. If it is going bad it might get worse. If you replace it you are fixing 2 problems, 1) replacing a component going bad 2) replacing a now broken component. After replacing it the fridge will be as new and everything working properly.

RE: Kentucky Horse Park CG

One of my favorite areas to visit. Take a drive out to see the horse ranches. Tour some distilleries, Visit Churchill Downs, Visit the Capitol in Frankfort. There’s just a lot to do around there.

RE: Charleston, SC

James Island County Park CG https://www.ccprc.com/1434/Campground I'll second this choice. It is a 12-minute drive to the historic district (a friend was going to College of Charleston) and I made the trek at 5pm every evening to pick him up for dinner. It's close to Folly Beach and they also run a shuttle to the historic district, but those are during peak times.Stayed there myself. Nice park.

RE: membership rv parks

Called an rv park and they said I had to join first. What should I know about such rv parks? What you should know is RUN AWAY! I can buy a site for about 8k. But only allowed in part of the time. What do they do with the site when I am not there? They allow many other fools that bought into the system to stay there. Are they timeshares?YES! And you will be paying a membership fee for the rest of your life even when you are too old to use it anymore. Then it gets passed on to your kids when you die and they will be paying the fees until they die. Thanks allYour Welcome.

RE: Bezel for covering screw holes?

I usually just put a screw back in the hole. Doesn't look bad.

RE: Mileage on used class A

Motorhomes are not like cars. Most people don’t put a lot of miles on them. It could be either they didn’t use it much or they lived in it fulltime and stayed put (this can usually be determined by the interior condition). I probably put less than 1000 miles a year on mine anymore but I do start it once a month and run it through the gears and pump the breaks a few times and run the AC. I would do my usual through look over as I would any vehicle no matter what the mileage is. Spend a little time looking at things, engine, trans, tires, under and over the whole unit. Even if you don’t know what you are looking at you can still usually spot things if it doesn’t look right.

RE: What's up with RV names??

Two names that I never wanted to own; Fire Ball Challenger...Throttle up Challenger My present is Aerbus. Not sure where, what or how?? There are definitions for other spellings but none for AERbus.

RE: Dometic Refridgerator stopped cooling

New units can be very expensive unless you are thinking about a residential unit. As stated earlier if there is/was no ammonia smell and there is no yellow powdery residue around the gas burner (indicates a cooling unit leak) than a repair will be A LOT less expensive and less invasive than a replacement. Even if there is an ammonia smell or yellow residue it will still be a lot less expensive to repair. If the cooling unit is ok then there isn’t much else left. Control board, Blown fuse, Rodents ate wires, all fairly inexpensive.

RE: Thinking of downsizing from DP to View

I went from a Class C to a gas Class A. The difference in handling is incredible. If I downgrade I will go to a smaller Class A. Don't think I will ever go back to a Class C.

RE: Repaired at the dealership... with a happy ending

Hopefully it was actually a bad circuit board and not just a bad connection that unplugging the connectors and reconnecting them could have fixed. That's how I fixed my water heater once.

RE: Any regrets after becoming a full timer?

My only regret was that I quit Fulltiming too soon.

RE: water pump replacement

Ok, this thread has been hi-jacked lol. Sorry for the Hi-Jack… Last post, This afternoon I went down to the motorhome with allen wrench in hand. To my surprise when I turned on the pump there was no noise. I turned on the kitchen faucet and got water, a second or two later the pump kicked on, then a second or two after turning off the faucet the pump shut off. Several attempts later I could not get it to fail. The water flow wasn’t as I was hoping for so I checked how much water I got out of the kitchen faucet in 1 minute. Pump is supposed to deliver 3.0 gpm. I got less than 1.5 gpm. I figured the faucet has a restrictor in it so I am not too concerned. Now back to the original post… Other than the hiccup in the beginning I am happy that I purchased this 8004-101-e65 Shurflo rather than repair the old (obsolete) pump. Oh and it is a bit quieter than the old.

RE: water pump replacement

It sounds like you have you input water lever on shore water which will not allow the pump to build up pressure and shut off. I did not have the motorhome hooked to shore water. I believe the valve was turned to input water. There is a check valve on the water inlet to hole pressure. If this is where I was loosing pressure I would see water coming out the inlet, which I didn't. Before blindly making any adjustments to the pressure or bypass I will cap off the outlet side of the pump to see if it shuts off. This will illuminate any pressure loss in the system.

RE: water pump replacement

Try running it on city water and open all the valves one at a time to bleed all the air out of the lines then try the pump again to see if it will shut off after it builds pressure. I did that. I ran it with all faucets open for about 10 minutes. It still won't turn off. I did not have the toilet open though. I need to try that.

RE: water pump replacement

Besides the obvious problem with the leak, your pump might be noisy because of the way it is mounted. In my coach the pump was mounted directly to the side wall in the basement. When I replaced it I got two braided plastic hose extensions at Home Depot and relocated the pump to a rubber mount on the bottom of the basement compartment. This not only made the pump much easier to service but it also made it so that I could hardly hear it when it was running.I installed the pump today and it will not shut off. I ran it for a while to purge all air out of the system. No leaks as far as I can tell. I guess I will have to play with the bypass switch adjustment tomorrow to see if I can get it to shut off.

RE: water pump replacement

I just went thought the same thing. Mine was leaking so I took it apart to find out why. In the process I broke a wire off the pressure switch so I defiantly needed a new switch. Could not find just the switch, would have to buy the upper housing with switch. Since I did not find a good reason for the leak I didn’t trust putting is back together without it still leaking. So I thought I would replace the whole Pumphead Assembly. I called Shurflo for a part number since I could not find my model number anywhere on the internet. Shurflo suggested I replace the whole pump with the new modern model. The 4008-101-E65 has a higher pressure with a slightly lower flow and lower current draw. It also does not cycle so there is no need for an accumulator tank. The reason it does not cycle is because it has an internal bypass valve, so, no matter how low or high you have your faucet on, you get a constant steady flow. It's also supposed to be quieter. And the best part is it was only $10 more than the part for the old pump. $60 on Amazon, free shipping. Ordered it yesterday and it is going to arrive tomorrow.

RE: CornerStone Extended Wat

Another thing about the warranty. If you roll it into your RV payments you will end up paying about 3 times more for it due to the interest of the loan. Just don’t do it.
