RE: What roof vent covers for Fantastic Fans

I have the older Fantastic Fan,installed 2010 and I use the New Maxx Air Fan mate. The new Maxx Air Fan Mate 955 like this is taller than the others,has no screen and I have no problem with my Fantastic Fan,which BTW the cover is designed to stop when it hits anything. I like the clips,they make it easy to open and clean the vent cover,unlike the others that you have to unbolt to clean or replace the vent lid Maxx Air Fan Mate This video will walk you thru the install. The part you will need is near the end,about the 3.30 time. 955 Maxx Air video

RE: Fabric ceilings

If the ceiling is covered with fabric like mine is. I have had great luck with Folex,on my Fabric ceilings just spray it on and BLOT don't rub,you will be amazed at how it lifts out any stains. It may take more than one application but it cleaned it all. http://images.lowes.com/product/converted/079738/079738000323.jpg height=280 You can get it at most big box home improvement stores or Amazon check out the reviews and pictures on Amazon.

RE: Lumbar Epidural Steroid Injection

Well I am back,after 3 weeks I have not seen much improvement in my pain. So now it looks like we will go for a second try,this time at the L5 location.This was discussed before as maybe the next step.I am good with that. My Dr. has been very good at explaining this all and I have hopes that this will do the job.I have an appointment for about 2 weeks and I will come back and report if anyone is interested....:B I have waited up to the last minute to cancel my week long camping trip hoping that I would be better.This would have been the 11th year with this new camper. Looking forward to next year. Happy Thanksgiving Everyone!

RE: New Chevy chassis

Yeah chassis is unchanged. The 4500-5500 trucks got a new chassis a couple years ago. Maybe that’s what you were thinking of? There was a great Youtube video on the Express 4500 chasis put out by Chevrolet,showing all the improvements,it has since disappeared. The only thing I could find that may be of help is This One.

RE: Alternative to bumper sewer hose carrier

I keep all my Rhino sewer hoses,The 15 Foot and The 5 Foot extension and all fittings in a Rubbermaid Tote,this keeps them away from everything so it won't contaminate anything and it is stackable. https://i.imgur.com/SH8IILul.jpg height=350

RE: The GEO Method and Space Heaters - Thoughts?

As for the GEO method I always do it after each dump with about bowl full of water,without the chlorine,the tank sensors all work just fine on this 16 year old Former Rental. I really did not like to sleep with the propane heater on,although I have done it. I preferred to use an electric heater but I did not like to run it off of the outlets in the RV as they are a bit flimsy for running something that uses that much power. I decided to run an Extra circuit that I could plug in the outside pedestal just for that use,it has worked out very well. I like the Vornado it is safe and also has a remote.

RE: dingy induced sway

Have you tried adding a "de-rattler" at each of the interfaces between hitch and receiver? There is some play at those joints and that can cause stability issues. The de-rattler will eliminate that play. I have tried almost every Anti Rattle device on the market, most have been no good or so complicated and cumbersome that they are useless. I have a whole tool box full of them. Until I found the one at Hitch Rider. This will keep everything tight. No back and forth or up and down,as most others only pull tight in one direction. Their Hitch Vice is the best and easiest one I have come across and it really works,nothing moves.

RE: Buying a Former Rental Class C. How many of us out there?

Hey Chris My thermostat is hooked to my Ducted A/C unit and also to my furnace,It replaced the old one Like this one which controls both of them. It can be hooked up to only control just the furnace.As I found out when trying to replace the old one,kept changing wires around until I got the right combo to run them both as the old one did..There is quite a few posts here on the forum,Here are a few That I found using the google search. As for the Bilsteins,they made the ride much nicer and controlled the leaning and porpoising.With the old ones after a dip the RV would go down then up then down again and up.With the Bilsteins they only make one rotation then settle back to the flat ride. It also takes out the harshness of the ride. I have been using Bilsteins for over 30 years,from my off-road vehicles thru all of my other vehicles,trucks,Suvs and other RVs. I hope this helps,anything else just ask,happy to help when I can. Happy Camping. Gary

RE: How does this work? TV antenna

When I bought my RV it had a Winegard Batwing that was not working, I cleaned up all connections and tested to see if it was broken, it was,so I replaced it with a new Batwing Head then ran a Channel Scan I was not impressed with the amount of channels that I got. This was done in my driveway here in the south bay of So Calif about 30 miles from the transmitters, using my SensarPro. I then went out and got a Wingman add on, that put my channel scan up to 85,but I had a clearance problem with the Wingman,it hit my A/C. So I opted to put a Jack Antenna and my channel scan went up to 174 https://i.imgur.com/jo4c1hQl.jpg width=280 http://i.imgur.com/7ZrhCTUl.jpg]http://i.imgur.com/7ZrhCTUl.jpgheight=220 I always get beat up by the techies, The debate will go on and on, but I know what works best for me,in the real world.

RE: How does this work? TV antenna

It's missing a crank & dial, that cranks up the antenna and turns it, it's directional, if I'm remembering right. It looks like it is missing These parts to move it around and the Handle to crank it up

RE: Refill small propane cylinder

The little green bottles are single-use disposables because the valves are junk. This is the very reason I went to the 1 Gallon that I linked in my OP. More than once after I turned off my Weber and did not take the bottle off I would come back and it would be empty.One time I took one off and the valve didn't close up and the propane still was flowing. With the 1 Gallon when I turn it off I know it is off.

RE: renting out your RV? Success stories? Issues?

There have been a few on here that have done that and seem to be happy with it and the way it helps pay for their RV. Here is one example They list on RV Share and seem to do very well. They also list on Outdoorsy On a personal note I have run across a few campers that had rented them thru RV Share and Outdoorsy. One told me that the person that he rented from had 2 Majestics that he rented out. One trip recently,a Chinese couple parked one space away from me and I happened to ask how they liked their Former Rental. I was surprised when they told me that they had rented from a man in their Chinese Community that had 5 of them and rented mostly within that community. They told me that they had reserved months in advance just to get an open spot. I seemed that he was doing very well.

RE: Loss of power

In the hatch where the shore power cord is stored is where the genset receptacle is located in your vintage of rigs. The older style motor homes (which yours is) usually had a plug (female receptacle) in one of the storage bays. Probably the bay where the power cord enters the motor home. When you plug into shore power, the plug goes to the receptacle on the pedestal. When you need the generator, the plug goes into the receptacle in the storage bay. If you don't plug the cord into the receptacle, the generator will run but will not connect (power up) to the motor home. Look in your electric bay or one of the others see if you can find something like this https://i.imgur.com/f1JDKIzl.jpg height=360 Plug your shore cord into it to power the RV from the generator https://i.imgur.com/vQx4nATl.jpg height=360
