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.

RE: No cruise control- Magestic, 2000, e450

Check your brake lights. If they are on they will turn the cruise control off.

RE: Air conditioner dripping

You say dripping… Is it dripping inside or outside?

RE: Workhorse engine pre-filter

I don’t believe the foam filter is a separate part. In the 15 years I have owned my W22 Workhorse motorhome I have never come across a separate foam filter. It depends which filter you buy. Some come with the foam and others don’t. I use the NAPA 6361 which comes with the foam.

RE: Our experience as Camp Hosts - California State Parks

I agree with you Dennis. My wife and I did it for a few years and loved it. We tried to get back in this summer but our favorite park had all the hosts they needed.

RE: what shower head allows reasonable flow

I got one of these. Best shower head I have ever had in an RV.

RE: 8.1L Knock and Update

It is easy to damage a plug wire while replacing the plugs. I bet that was your problem. As far as the extension, It is known fact that if you drop anything in your engine compartment it will not fall through and you will never see it again. I bought a car once that had a plastic smell coming from the engine compartment. Never could figure it out until one day I was looking at something in there and spotted a screwdriver with a melted plastic handle wedged between the exhaust manifold and the engine.

RE: Newbies! Sometimes you've just gotta laugh!

When I was traveling on the east coast, they called every RV a camper. I would cringe when they called my 36 foot Class A motorhome a camper. To me, only something you carry on the back of a pickup truck is a camper.

RE: Please Directv, what is going on Rant

It is becoming more and more evident that ATT does not give a hoot about their present DirecTV customers. I had a problem with not receiving the movie channels I pay extra for and they wanted to send a tech out at $99. I told them I am not paying $99 to have a tech find out why I am not getting the channels I pay extra for. I told them I might have to cancel my service after being a customer for 15 years and go with cable. There answer was OK should I shut it off right now?
