RE: Generator vapor locking

After the generator stops after running and is hot, press and hold the generator primer button, if you don't hear the normal pulsing sound of the electric fuel pump, it has likely seized. After it cools, try holding the primer button again, if you hear it, the generator will likely start and run again till the pump gets hot then seizes again. Replace the pump. The Amazon replacement pump worked well for me. With the generator running, the electric fuel pump should run continuously, but you just can't hear it over the generator's noise.

RE: Army Corps Of Engineers Parks Are Closing?

I received these emails from Alabama and Texas State Parks: https://content.govdelivery.com/accounts/TXPWD/bulletins/28102ca https://content.govdelivery.com/accounts/ALDNR/bulletins/2810bb8

RE: The Coronavirus

For those that hope to travel this season by RV or camper, I've received emails in the last week from State Parks like Texas & Alabama saying they will be open and will step up cleaning procedures in their public facilities. However, for Texas Sate parks, they mention if someone visits a park with Covid-19, they may close that park for a period of time. At least in Parks people are spread out. https://content.govdelivery.com/accounts/TXPWD/bulletins/28102ca https://content.govdelivery.com/accounts/ALDNR/bulletins/2810bb8

RE: Class a toy haulers that can fit a smart car

We tow a Smart Car 4 down and that has worked well for us. But I do see your points on ease of backing up and being "shorter" and so ease in maneuvering. Plus after towing in rainy weather or on muddy roads you end up with a really dirty car when towing. Plus the car is in a secure place "inside". I've seen some RV's tow an enclosed trailer with the car or motorcycle inside it which reduces a lot of wear and tear on them. A Smart Car is a bit over 1800 lbs. Good luck with your research.

RE: Charging electric car

We saw a Testa X towing a 20' Airstream trailer(US plates) parked in a campground in Newfoundland in the fall and of coarse the car was re-charging. Tesla just showed their full sized EV pick up truck(500 mile range) last week and other manufactures are to soon follow. Campgrounds will see more EV's in the future that are the tow vehicles and not just the toad. As mentioned, these charge using 240volts/48 amps. That may not be much more power being used than a RV with 2 AC's running plus other equipment. Example our AC/heat pump 30amps, water heater 12 amps, Kuerig 15 amps, Microwave 12 amps, etc.

RE: Charging electric car

As mentioned, just plug into the camp site's shore power. A Tesla or other EVs need a 240 volt supply to fully charge overnight if the EV battery is run down. Tesla Model 3 Standard Models need 240 volt/32 Amp and Long Range Model needs 240 volt/48 Amps supplies. You use the cord the car comes with. You can also charge with 120 Volts/12 Amp using the same cord but with a 120 Volt adapter plug but it's very slow. The issue seems to be how to tow it behind the RV. I believe Tesla says no as they are rear wheel drive or all wheel drive with no transmission with a Neutral. I would think a car dolly would work with a front wheel drive EV like the Chevy Bolt.

RE: National Sea Breeze bedroom slide gears

Does it look like this slide out gear/motor assembly used in the 05 Dolphin. If so, I had problems with the brass gear losing teeth. I tried a steal replacement gear but is too brittle and also broke. The gear needed was a Martin WB1220 that requires the bore to be drilled out from 1/2" to 5/8" and a 1/4" hole drilled for the roll pin. I found replacement gears in brass or steal but that was 4 to 5 years ago now, I see they are still listed. https://www.motioncanada.ca/productDetail.jsp?sku=00367424 https://i.imgur.com/y4eFXgll.jpg https://i.imgur.com/7Lnywiml.jpg

RE: 5-8 Error Code on Onan 7KW Gas Generator

I assume the error code was read counting the 2 sets of the number of blinks by the start button red light, that is after the first 3 blinks showing a shut down, then pressing the start button once showed 5 blinks followed by 8 blinks for code 58.

RE: First trip in Class A driving in Smokey Mountains

I agree with other's comments and it sounds like you did everything right, especially going down hill and not letting your speed build up and get out of control. I never worry about slowing down going up hill as I know there is nothing I can do about it and put on the 4 way flashers when under 45 mph. In the mountains out west, often I may end up following a semi who is also slowed down by the up hill grade and I usually back off a bit on my engine RPMs as it can be many miles to the top.

RE: 2007 workhorse w22 rear wheel axle seals

Your rear end is likely labeled as a Spicer model # S-130. The Workhorse seal # is W8000276 and the Dana-Spicer's part # is W20HH100. https://www.finditparts.com/products/2030547/dana-holding-corporation- w20hh100 Or made by SKF part# SKF 35000 https://www.rockauto.com/fr/moreinfo.php?pk=1837330&jsn=8 Also see DIY video of replacing seal: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZNw5wYmektE

RE: ~Post your campsite photos here~

Gros Morne National Park, Newfoundland, Canada, Berry Hill Campground, site 65 Sept 2019. This is one of the nicest campgrounds we've stayed in. It not only had large,well treed private sites, it had an amazing common area outdoor kitchen with 2 wood burning cook stoves(firewood provided), a stainless steel counter sink with running hot/cold water, well covered by a large roof, bright night lighting and is a Wifi hotspot. First class washrooms and showers were just around the corner. https://i.imgur.com/deqpuFml.jpg https://i.imgur.com/S5XobIql.jpg https://i.imgur.com/1dq8YYal.jpg https://i.imgur.com/jBLsUhbl.jpg https://i.imgur.com/7iE2vhHl.jpg https://i.imgur.com/WZhku1Ol.jpg https://i.imgur.com/PZKctapl.jpg

RE: ONAN 5500 Grand Marquis fuel pump & filter

I got a fuel pump and filter off Amazon.com a few years ago and is still working fine. My fuel would stop(seize) when it got hot causing generator to stop. It would work again once it cooled but stop again when hot. In cold weather it would work better. https://www.amazon.com/s?k=onan+5500+fuel+pump&crid=VQGILPQ11T1L&sprefix=onan+%2Caps%2C286&ref=nb_sb_ss_i_4_5
