RE: cabin rentals? Eastern PA

The Delaware River KOA is normally open year round and they have cabins.

RE: Lake Mead should show some increase in level.

The CA rains will do little for Lake Mead. At best, it will send a very small amount into the Lower Colorado River Basin most likely south of Laughlin.

RE: Time to Paint the RV - Who's good at it ?

Navarro's Paint & Body shop in Algodones Mexico. Not far from the Yuma crossing. Just be prepared to wait for an available opening, they tend to book up way in advance.

RE: Winnebago View

From a WB View owner I know, the main problem with these streamline RV's is people drive them like their mamma's mini-van.

RE: Valve stem extension

I believe the recall was due to the (more decorative versus strong) valve stem extensions not being properly supported causing them to hit the wheel. This could result in the stem being sheered off and a sudden loss of air in the tire. For whatever reason, it was easier to remove the extension completely instead of adding new stronger extensions with the proper support to prevent contact with the wheel. Since millions of vehicles have extensions without issues, you may just want to head over to a truck store and buy a set of adequate valve extensions with decent supports and install it yourself.

RE: Looking for 1994 generator part: Onan 166-0779 Ignition Coil

Yes. No stock per a comment below there. Thanks! I have learned to never go solely by other's comments as stock levels can change daily or their comment could be from years ago. I would recommend calling them to see if it's available. Having an older RV, I often come across "out of stock" online messages only to find they have 1 or 2 in stock when I called. Oftentimes, the message is generated when they stock falls below a certain level. You should also get to know your regional RV salvage yards as they are a great source for older parts.

RE: Propane feed question

It's possible that that "outlet" is actually a one way inlet used to attach a larger external extended stay tank with it's own regulator. Vapors will flow into the manifold from that port but vapors will not exit through that port. Just a possibility to check out.

RE: My generator may not be repairable, what do I do?

Regarding the replacement generator. Check to see if the "compartment" is an actual compartment or if the floor is nothing but the base (part of) the exiting generator. If so, check to see how much below the existing generator the new one will hang once you make your own bracket and shelf. Go examine the proposed generator and see how much height is taken up by the base and wheels. If mounting inside the RV, there's no need for the wheels and base to be attached. You can keep those as a platform for if or when you remove the generator and want to roll it around. Next remove the side covers and see what is above the working portion. Often the top is just an integrated handle and fuel tank. If the handles can be removed or eliminated, you may gain another inch or so. The fuel tank may also be removed or relocated within the compartment if you can find a way to ensure fuel delivery. You should be able to connect the generator to RV just like the previous generator without he need for added or outside cables. If you want to keep that replacement generator intact as is, a cargo carrier setup is very common. Just know you'll have to do some creative cabling if you plan on using it while in motion.

RE: New here & source for motor parts

Welcome to the joys of an older RV. As others have mentioned, the first thing is to determine the "chassis" of the RV. The chassis is the motor vehicle portion of the RV. Chassis parts are usually very common auto parts available at most auto parts stores or online retailers. One important fact is to make sure you know the actual year of the chassis as RV manufactures "RV" years may be a year or two past the chassis manufacture's year. It normally isn't that big deal unless (like mine) you're straddling a chassis change where the year (and month) is important as parts changed. Also if there are component differences (there were two transmission designs in my year each with slightly different parts) you need to know which you have in order to get the right parts. As for the "coach" portion of the RV, many of the major components are standard RV parts used across many manufactures or more universal that swapping isn't that big a deal. So a A/C may be the same used across dozens of RV makes and models from that period and not specific to yours alone. Many older RV owners do like using RockAuto simply because it allows you to focus on the parts category as well as see multiple options from cheap knock-offs to OEM parts. I avoid retailers on Ebay simply due to the abundance of counterfeit parts found repackaged into OEM boxes and sold as discounted genuine OEM parts. I also use a national retailer (Advance, Auto-Zone, NAPA, O'Reilly) as you can take the part into the store and have them match it up if there's a question as to if you are ordering the right part. I find they usually have many parts in stock or at least a day away in a warehouse. Of course, unlike RockAuto, your selection may be down to OEM, a couple brand names, or their own branded part. However, being able to have a hands on selection option sometimes saves the day. So, enjoy your mature RV.

RE: Winter Travel Phoenix, Az to Montrose, Co

Probably don't need to remind you but pay very close attention to the northern AZ weather forecast that time of the year. You don't want to be stuck in a standstill whiteout for hours, or travel embargoed because you need full chains, or on the news as another "trailer" blown over by the winds. I-40's bad weather can be a mean surprise that comes out of nowhere.

RE: Route 89A in utah

We've never done this one before...now a class A 30 foot with toad. How is it...steep? which we have done just yesterday on 530 in Wyoming/191 in Utah. If you really meant 89A in Utah (the Utah to AZ border crossing route), it's flat as flat can be. Wide lanes and easy as you can get. Now 89A through the AZ mountains and highlands is another story.

RE: Medicare For Full Timers

The issue some have with these "any network provider" Medicare Advantage "nationwide" plans are in some parts of the country, there are too few providers let alone any specialist. Even when there are providers, the next available appointment for non in-state enrolled patient is a month or more out. Humana, like all "networked" Advantage plans is provider deserts, no provider within any reasonable travel distance. Yes, you may be able to go out of network in some cases and have a portion covered, but often they use the network requirement for coverage as an excuse to deny payment. I don't think is really a case of "gambling", more like a careful needed evaluation of risk vs rewards. For the rewards of saving substantial money, can you tolerate the risk of a possible no or denied coverage and expense?

RE: CARB smog testing motorhomes Every 4months by 2024

Because this is an OBD only smog check, I suspect there will be many mobile testing (allowed under the regulations) setups especially along the state's borders. I can even see a RV Park having an arrangement with a local Certified Carb Inspector to perform inspections at the park. Maybe even inspections available at truck stops while you fuel up. I believe they estimate the entire test is under 5 minutes.

RE: Clogged Black Tank

Did you verify that the tank valve is actually opening and not just opening a crack?

RE: Hedging Gas Prices

I don't think the major companies offer a buy now/pump later plan, but maybe there is a way to do that in the futures market. Sure you can do that but for practical purposes, how will your gasoline get into your tank when and where you need it at that price?

RE: RV registration in SD

Here I begin the debate. We have been legal residents of SD while full timing. We have now bought a home in AZ. Can we continue to register our motorhome in South Dakota once we get new drivers' licenses in AZ? Thanks. You can continue registering the RV in SD but that would not exempt you from legally being required to register it in AZ. Once you obtained the AZ operators license, you became a resident of the state. As a resident, the ARS require you register all motor vehicles with AZ. There are some exception but wouldn't apply in this case. As for enforcement, unless pulled over between October through April, odds are LEO's or DOT Enforcement wouldn't be looking for violators (too many snowbirds). But come the "summer" months, DOT is more likely to be out crosschecking registrations and drivers licenses on-the-fly to see if they have a violator. Just to add; A state may allow you to register a vehicle in that state based on their regulations, but that doesn't mean it negates another state's registration requirements for residents. You may have been reading about the Montana crackdown and that's causing lots of hurt to many when caught.

RE: Holiday Rambler 2006 shower plumbing leak

Every plumbing project requires 3 trips to Lowes. Never had that happen; go to Lowes once and get what I think I may need. Next I wait for all the retired neighbors to come over and help. By the end of the day, nothing got done, the system is in worst shape, parts all over the place, everyone ran home and I'm on the phone to the mobile RV tech. Still only one trip to Lowes.

RE: Its great to compare/contrast similar C's...

My floorplan was introduced in the mid 1970's (1979 first used my manufacture) and ran continuously by the industry until about 2005 (discontinued by my manufacture in 2002) with what appears to be only different choices in material/fabric and the graphics changed outside. I'm sure they updated the mechanics and such, but to the eye, the layout did not change at all. Even today the new Gulfstream BT Cruiser 5210 uses the same floorplan. I guess when they find a layout that works, they are hard pressed to mess with it.

RE: RV parking in Bardstown, KY

As for the "downtown" area, if you go a few blocks away from the main streets, you'll see street parking that isn't in marked spaces. If you don't park directly in front of someone's house or business (think street parking along a large open area), you shouldn't have any concerns. Just pay attention to the signs. As mentioned, the schools and government building has parking. But, again, pay attention to the signs as some are technically closed when the offices or school is closed. As for the distilleries, most have ample parking that can accommodate an RV.
