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.

RE: Rock Guard

The mud flaps behind the wheels should be enough. The big flap is just trapping hot air kicking up rocks etc. Looks nice till you drag it through dip and the trailer hitch puts a big dent or cut in it.

RE: In search of a heater !

Why not get a long thin transmission cooler run the water through that and just put a fan behind it so when you want the heat just turn on the fan.

RE: Vehicle for Pennsylvania to Arizona and back

You've got the tow vehicle why not rent for a week end and see if wife feels comfortable pulling a smaller travel trailer. Then just rent one for your trip.

RE: Dumb mistake

You may want to spray the whole area that got wet with bleach. You are now camping in a hazmat area. Everything came out of the black tank.

RE: Motor Whine

In the past some MH's had noise made by the grill. I'd think if it was an engine made noise if you brought the rpms up to the same as they were when it was going 60 the noise should again be there. This wouldn't happen if it's drive train noise though.

RE: FanTastic bathroom fan?? ((UPDATE)){{{UPDATE}}}}

When I replaced my motor the new one will not stay engaged with the motor gear so I need to just push up on the knob to keep it engaged till it's opened or closed. I can hear the motor running on mine can you hear your motor running or does it just shut off.

RE: Refrigerator has quit working on elec./ where is fuse?

do you have a gfi that needs to be reset. The outside refrigerator. plug should be connected to a gfi.
