RE: Prest-O-Fit Sewer Hoses

I use them but if your worried about them coming off you can buy hose clams with a thumb screw fitting instead of the screwdriver fitting to tighten the connection that's what I do if I'm going to leave them hooked up for a long period of time

RE: Considering moving from a Newmar 40' to a Fleetwood 38'

Why not just spend the money to up grade newer things into your present MH.

RE: 50 Amp Surge Guard Issue?

Just remember they are NOT water proof, when I was putting mine on the power pole I'd cover the pole and unit with a black trash bag and bungee cords. Never had to worry about rain or watering systems doing damage to it.

RE: Wax on my Motorhome fiberglass roof

I go to the dollar store and get 2 or 3 foam mops wash the roof then spray on Protectall and spread it with the foam mop and don't worry about buffing it off and I can do it all standing up.

RE: Diff, transmission maintenance questions

Are you sure you don't also have a drain plug on the bottom of the dif. It will be like the fill plug you found on the side. The plug in the drain pan on the trans. is the drain plug. You may also have a inline trans filter. On my friends F53 it is up near the radiator pass. side in the return line for the trans cooler. Looks like a small can that unscrews.

RE: Bedroom Slide motor seems to be disengaged

Is there a chance that something could have hit the motor. There should be on the motor a leveler with as I recall a black plastic cover. This is what they call the motor brake it's so if something happens you can disengage the motor and move the slide manually. If anything around it moved it could have disengaged the drive gear. On my slide the motor connects to the rail gears with a square tube can you turn this tube with a wrench and get the slide to move in or out?

RE: advice on purchase

I think the 330 engine is the different then the 300 which is the 5.9 that goes in the Dodge pickups if so it's a plus. Which allison trans does it have I'd prefer the 6 spd over the 5spd. As to the tires look for the date code on the side of the tire you should find the letters DOT then in a box behind the letters will be 4 numbers the first two are the week the second two are the year ( example 1316 would be 13 week of 2016, 2406 would be 24th week of 2006) The numbers are only on one side of the tire so if you can't find them on the outside of the tire you need to look at the inside. Most replace their tires when they are about 7 years old.

RE: Which dash cam to buy??

I have a YI and am happy with it and you can get an app to down load to your phone and it will take a 64gb card.

RE: Accidentally plugged into 220v

The converter converts 110 to 12 volt so it charges the battery when plugged into shore power but also powers all the 12 volt things, lights, water pump, circuit board for thermostat, refrigerator, hot water heater, etc.

RE: Electricity? Never touch the stuff

Just make sure you have a good EMS surge protector or you check the readings Old-Biscut posted BEFORE you plug in your RV. To make sure it was wired correctly. In fact it's a good idea to do this before you plug in any time.

RE: "leaking" fridge has caused trim to start rotting

When you put that drain tube outside make sure you have a little bend in it (p-trap) like your sinks so warm air can't get into the frig. via the drain tube.

RE: When it rains, It pours--HELP

To help finding out why the one fuse keeps blowing replace it with a resettable 15 amp breaker

RE: Connected to shore power

I would only add that make sure you have a good 3 stag charging system be it inverter or converter. If not make sure you keep and eye on the water in your batteries, so it doesn't go low.

RE: Invisibrake or Stay-In-Play Duo ??

See if you have room to install a separate bulb and socket in the tail lights, then you don't have to tie into your toads brake light circuit. If you use the stay and play duo you can run a wire to the MH dash to light a light when the Stay and play has activated the toads brakes. Make sure when you tow the CRV to follow the instructions to the letter had a friend go through two transmissions pulling his.

RE: Dometic fridge won’t stay lit

That's as big as the flame is going to get. Pull the connector off the circuit board and reinstall the connector and see if that will help. Or wipe the circuit board contacts with some alcohol before reinstalling the connector. See if that would help. Also check the ground connection.
