RE: Cracked Propane fittings

The info is also wrong in that the recall notice was a batch release. It included other items not related to the gas issue. So, not all the manufactures mentioned had gas issues, some were cracked insulation on electrical wires or a mounting screw that could cause a part to come loose. This is borderline sensationalism reporting for the panic effects.

RE: Water Pressure Regulator

I've used one of those brass non-adjustable (not even a gauge) regulators I picked up for about $15 or so bucks and it's worked forever with no problems. Never needed to adjust the pressure and wasn't that interested in what the pressure was so long as it was safe. I even have a few of those $8 plastic regulators in a baggie in case I need another one or run into someone who forget theirs on the last bib.

RE: Dentist in Mexico

If you have a dental plan, check with them first to see if they reimburse for care in Mexico. Some plans do provide coverage (reimbursement not direct bill) for care at select offices in Mexico providing the dental office properly completes the paperwork. I know someone who used Castle Dental in Los Algodones and the office completed the insurance paperwork and provided copies of the documents required. He submitted the paperwork to his US dental insurance, and they reimbursed him a sizable portion.

RE: ez pass/toll pass placement on class A

Wait! License plate mounted on? what is that? I can use the window for now. Some states/providers offer what's called a Bumper/License plate mounted EZPass. It's basically a snickers size plastic unit that can be screwed to a bumper or a license plate. For most RV's with windshields that have no overhead obstruction, regular EZPass units work fine. For RV's with overhead obstructions, the windshield units may have issues. The amount and frequency of issues probably are not worth the added potential for the EZPass transponder to get stolen (held on by screws in plastic tabs that can easily be broken off) when out in the open. I have the exterior that is mounted up near the clearance lights. This gives me no obstruction (highest clearest area on my RV's front) and never had any issue with it being read. Never had a missed toll or red light since mounting it high and forward.

RE: Black tank not draining!

If when you use the toilet, the drain appears full and when you open the sewer valve the flow is "solid-less" water, yep, the clog is between the toilet and the holding tank. You can add some commercial dissolver (RV tabs take too long) along with enough water to get it flowing through to the clog or use a mechanical device to break through the clog.

RE: Brake lights don't work

Does the brake and turn signal using the same "filament" on your coach or are they independent? Here's where you can look up the wiring diagrams : 2004 Winnebago Wiring Diagrams (not sure which model you have)

RE: Replacement catalytic converter

I just ran your vehicle on the Air Resource Board's website and it returned over 3 pages of approved aftermarket Cats for your make, model and engine. All that would be needed to cull the list is the Test# off the sticker in your vehicle. With that, it's basically the approved shopping list as to what you are allowed to install. They also include a downloadable pdf of the EO for the specific item. Of course the proper paperwork would need to be completed when installed, but that's routine for installers. Sounds more like the issue is everyone is passing the buck. Ford doesn't want to service the RV even though they can at their commercial service facilities and your insurance company is blowing you off.

RE: 1983 Midas Kingston - free RV with a locked engine

No major damage to the inside. Unfortunately, major damage to an RV coach portion is often hidden.

RE: Fresh water dump inside help

Have you considered a plain old 3" flexible flat blue pool water discharge hose and a zip tie? And I would think any diverter setup (plastic sheeting and some bricks) would handle and direct anything from the overflow outside.

RE: Replacement catalytic converter

Isn't your insurance company able to use their contacts to get it replaced? If you didn't get comprehensive coverage on your RV, try contacting the chassis manufacture and see which dealer services their medium duty commercial vehicles; they normally can handle RV's.

RE: Boondocking in Ventura County, CA

Over the years, there have been efforts by various campground owners associations to get overnight parking banned - ostensibly for "safety" reasons. In some cases, they have been successful. I disagree. The push to ban parking lot campgrounds is almost always based on community objection. Walmart has banned overnight RV parking even in the absence of any ordnance requiring it. It's often driven by simple bad RVer's behavior. It doesn't take many to ruin it for all.

RE: Converting PC laptop to Android tablet

Not sure about laptops but when doing the Android conversion on my old PC, I lost use of some built in added features like the wifi and extra front usb ports. I had to use a wifi dongle plugged into the rear usb ports to get wifi. The issue was that only one device could operate on the usb at a time. It could be because this was an old PC and the android conversion was done a couple years ago (old version). I haven't tried upgrading the android version as I really don't use it much.

RE: Electrical wiring question for Wolf Pup 2018 16BHS

If the wires are still exposed, you may want to consider not abandoning them but repurposing them. You can add a small 12-volt LED light with switch or maybe a simple USB charger port. However, first deal with the repeated low battery issue as you shouldn't be finding or placing yourself in that predicament too often.

RE: Prescott, AZ to Quartzite?

Glad you made it. How would you compare that trip to using Douglas Pass or Baxter Pass Roads in Colorado?

RE: Water hose stuck on side of trailer..

Over 2 decades of AZ water I never had an item frozen together from the hard water buildup where a hard twist didn't provide some (gritty) movement. If it was so frozen you were not able to twist it, and it's not been years of stationary never disconnected use, I suspect you had a a case of galvanic corrosion from substances within the water acting on the metals of the connection. Since you already cut the hose, just begin squeezing the metal parts together until it releases from the corresponding connector. Hopefully it was nothing, but the inlet screen corroded to the hose (simple easy fix in many cases) and not the entire inlet receptacle frozen to the hose as that usually means a full replacement.

RE: RV sulfur smell

I would first have the water tested to see how much hydrogen sulfide is in the water. If just an amount that causes the stinkies, many filters will do the trick of removing the smell and some HS2. If at a level approaching unhealthy, a more robust system is needed.

RE: Japanese Van Import As Dinghy Tow

Kei's can be flat towed depending on the drive/transmission system installed on a specific vehicle. Some systems will allow for flat towing as is or with minor modifications. Others will pretty much need a major rework. You just need someone who know the actual drive system of the unit your thinking of buying and what is required as a single make/model can have several engines and several transmissions in various configurations. With that said, Kei's are not really that good for flat toeing behind an RV. Many of the enthusiast will tell you how theirs literally started dropping parts along an interstate or simply burnt up along the way. Although their top speed can be 80 kph, they really were not designed for long travel over 80 kph. That's probably why you'll see many on trailers behind an RV.

RE: blue ridge parkway from Hwy21 in NC north to NC/VA border

As mentioned, the road is slow enough that there shouldn't be any issues. Just check that day for any unexpected changes or closures. Because of the lengthy distances between some access points, posted detours can be frustrating so pre planning around them (if they are known that day) can ease the drive.

RE: RV'ing couple missing

It is indeed tragic. Based on the Sheriff press release on location, I would assume they were looking for a shortcut back to 95 and took one of those "roads" that are really nothing but dirt trails. Once they were stuck, they tried to make it somewhere in their car and that also got bogged down. They first spotted the larger RV from the air but could not see the small car which was only a couples miles away. Once they got to the RV and discovered it empty, they used it as a reference point to fan out searching for the car. Having lived in the desert, I have always followed the practice that if you get stuck in the RV, stay with the RV as it's bigger to find and at least have the ability to provide survival resources.
