RE: Class C RV cost in the Covid era...

I want to buy a new/slightly used Coach House, but my current rig is doing the job, so I will wait on prices to drop. Mine is 17 years old 35, 000 miles on her and my mechanic who just changed the oil says she's barely broke in. We bought her to take to Alaska and she did great. When my DH died I sold our 40' Phaeton (got what I wanted) and I kept the little one. I'm currently on the road, 5,000 mile trip to see relatives I hadn't seen in a year, and I'm now on my way back to Florida. Life is good. I have noticed the NADA price on my current rig is up from the last time I checked. She's in good shape inside/out, except for decals which I will be replacing. Dale

RE: A very old stray {The Old Fella Story}

I am on my way back to Florida. Stopped for the night in Millbrook, Alabama, to visit some former fulltiming friends. Been a good trip so far. Will be in Florida tomorrow, but don't know if I will make it all the way home. Best wishes for Richard. Dale

RE: KZ Connect C231RBKSE Refrigerator Quit Working

Your profile says "midwest." Are you close to northern Indiana? Take it to JC Refrigeration or National Refrigeration both in Shipshewana, Indiana. I know National does warranty work. They will fix it. Dale

RE: NorCal Fridge wont run on AC

I have a 2004 with a Dometic fridge. It quit running on electric. That almost never happens. . . it's usually the other way around. Works great on gas, though. So I took it to the Amish and they tested everything. The fridge actually does run on electric, but not through the plug it's plugged into. So I had my electrical engineer friend put in a new outlet. The old outlet was one of the really cheap trailer receptacles that are a press fit and the wires were just not making good contact. Now it works great. My friend charged me nothing for labor and the parts were $1.87. Dale

RE: Refrig. Repair.

You won't be disappointed with either of these businesses. I just had some work done by Glenn Miller at National Refrigeration and then some friends at the Elkhart Campground had him put in a new cooling unit the very next week. Very thrilled with their refrigerator now. Glenn bought the business from Leon Hershberger who is building generators now. Dale

RE: Fridge on the Fritz

Since you are in SW Michigan, you are not far from Shipshewana, Indiana. Give Glenn Miller a call at National Refrigeration at 260-768-7059. You will not be disappointed. He will troubleshoot your fridge and fix it and he doesn't charge an arm and a leg. He's an Amish man, very honest, etc. He bought the business from Leon Hershberger and has relocated on SR120 north of Shipshewana about 1 1/4 miles. It's on a curve, new building. . . you can't miss it. Address is 6755 W SR 120, Shipshewana. He's troubleshooted mine a few weeks ago. Spent 45 minutes on it and didn't charge me. He couldn't fix it, but it wasn't the fridge. . . it was an electrical problem at the outlet. A friend in the campground (an electrical engineer) fixed it. That same friend had to run over to Shipshewana the next week and have Glenn change out the cooling unit in his fridge for $1100. Running great now, but his boiler had ruptured. He will fix you up for sure. Dale

RE: Rear View Camera

It does have a rear view camera but the sales person told us it only comes on when the coach is in reverse. Same with the side views on the mirrors. They only come on when the turn signal is engaged. That is true for the turn signal cameras, but you should have a rear view camera. Salesmen don't always know. Like the one that told us our generator was propane. I said, ?????? He said, they ALL are. No, that's not true. I got the serial number off of it and called Onan. It was a GAS powered generator as I thought. It may be a setting, but I'm betting you have a rearview camera. A backup camera only comes on when you are in reverse. There is a difference between a backup and a rearview camera. We had a friend who refused to run with his rearview camera on going down the road, something we did without fail to keep an eye on the toad and on traffic. I asked him why he didn't have it on. He said he couldn't stand the road noise. I said. . . "You do know there is a volume control on it don't you?" He looked at me like I was daft. Guess what? It had a volume control. He had the coach for over a year and didn't know that. :-) Dale

RE: Rear View Camera

You have a new Tiffin and it doesn't have a rear view camera on it? I'm surprised. My 2006 Tiffin had it. I have not seen a Class A without one. I would call the boys at Tiffin and ask about it. Dale

RE: Sharp Microwave Oven Door

My DH repaired my Sharp Carousel Micro/Convection twice. First time the turntable motor needed replacing and the second, he replaced the door latch which broke. He never removed the appliance. He googled the repairs on YouTube and accomplished both with minimal effort. So before you go to the trouble of removing the microwave, google youtube and see how to fix it. Dale

RE: What is the Passport America plan

We found a sorta neat, new RV park in the edge of the N Georgia mtns yesterday. Nothing fancy just FHU 50 amp with a bath house. Small place, concrete pads, wide sites - some on a small river and others in the open. They say there regular price is 50 dollars, but with PA it is 25. I am not sure it is worth the 44 fee to join PA for a couple of times there per summer. Tell me more about PA please What is the name of this park? Dale

RE: Garmin RV GPS

I didn’t want the bigger screen for in my B+ so I got the 785. Also the 785 has a built in dash camera and the 890 doesn’t. Just depends on what features are important to you.

RE: Garmin RV GPS

I just purchased and received the new Garmin 785. Dale The new Garmin for RVs is the RV890 Well, I got a new Garmin 785. . . perhaps not the latest, but it was the size I wanted and it has all the features of the 890. Dale

RE: Garmin RV GPS

I just purchased and received the new Garmin 785. I've been setting it up and putting addresses in, but haven't used it for travel yet. I really prefer the Rand McNally RV GPS, but I've had 3 and they all have failed. When you are on the road and it says "No GPS" you are screwed. One I sent back and received a replacement and it works "most" of the time, but I guess I have to say they are unreliable. I've had a Garmin fail as well, but it was years. . . and I mean many years old. This Garmin has a dash cam and traffic as well. My DH recently passed away and I wanted a unit that multitasked, since I don't have my navigator with me anymore. Gone are the days when he would sit in the passenger seat and have a split screen on his laptop showing GPS and weather/traffic, etc. Dale

RE: Rubber Roof help

A friend of mine in the camp is an electrical engineer and wanted a crack at the fridge. The outlet was faulty. You could jiggle it and it would flash power intermittently. So he went to Menard's and bought $1.87 worth of parts and installed a new outlet. He did a great job and the fridge now runs on electric and switches back and forth from gas to electric when on auto. Thanks, Roger. You saved the day! I kept my appointment and had them address the leak, which after the rain last night, was more of a waterfall in the motorhome. They checked the gasket and it was substantial, so he snugged up the A/C and tested it with a water hose. It works great now. . . no more leaking, although he would have preferred I authorize a new roof. LOL Back at the camp, I filled with propane only to find that the yellow cap on the fill valve had disappeared. Was there last time I filled. So off to find the part. Found it next door at the RV sales place. $3.00. Back in business. So all is well. I even restrung my day/night shade myself. Whoo hoo! Thanks for all your suggestions. I am glad all is fixed. Dale

RE: 2006 Winnebago aventurer

Hello, I'm looking at purchasing a 2006 Winnebago that has been garage kept since 2006. I plan on replacing the battery and tires and also a complete inspection. I want to get some pros cons. Thanks, Vic When we purchased an older, little used motorhome, we had our mechanic change all the belts, hoses, fluids and filters. Also changed the batteries (house and chassis), all the tires, which had 8,000 miles on them but were 8 years old. We were taking it to Alaska. The mechanic did not change the fuel filter/pump because they were in the tank and would necessitate dropping the driveshaft. Second trip out on a shakedown cruise, the fuel pump failed so ended up getting that changed out on the road. That was because it had been sitting for at least six years without any gas treatment in the tank. She ran to Alaska and back with nary a hiccup. Now my DH has passed and I am in this motorhome on my own adventure. She is still running great. Dale
