RE: camping outlook 2021

We have been full timing for over 16 years and we have definitely seen the parks full and hard to get reservations. We are 45' so that already cuts down on the places we can stay. We commented many times this past year how many temporary plates we'd see on mostly trailers, 5ths, and many motorhomes. They are definitely new to the lifestyle, don't know any campground etiquette, have trouble backing into easy spots, etc. We have had to reserve out much farther than ever before. But would I sit without moving, absolutely not, we usually put 10-12,000 miles year on and did last year and plan to this year, although our cancelled plans of spending 6 weeks or so in Maine which we cancelled last year looks like it might be cancelled this year with the tight restrictions still in place.

RE: Need an Education

We have a DP and as far as leaving a site, we start the engine and then disconnect water, sewer, and electric, usually in the time that takes we come up on the air enough to bring in the slides. We bring in the slides which takes another couple minutes and idle out. It does take almost 10 minutes in all. We can't move our slides until we are fully up on the air. As far as pulling in, we turn off the engine to extend the slides but then need to start it again to level, but that only takes a minute unless very unlevel site. Idling into the campground cools the engine enough to shut down.

RE: Class A travel without interstates

We avoid interstates almost all the time unless we absolutely have to make time and that is rare.

RE: Selinoid

The Big Boy is normally hot to the touch, but certainly not hot enough to ruin another solenoid. There is some other problem, and you still haven't said what solenoid??

RE: Mt Rushmore and Yellostone National Park

Fishing Bridge just announced they will not open in 2021 at all, blame it on Covid

RE: Mt Rushmore and Yellostone National Park

Fishing Bridge RV Campground has full hookups and is right in Yellowstone National Park. It has recently been refurbished. Make reservations now. Fishing Bridge won't open until Sep 2021, it was delayed for Covid.

RE: 2017 Monaco Diplomat 43G

It's a REV product, so I would look into that brand and peruse the forums for Fleetwood and American coaches.

RE: Tire Pressure Chart For Continental Tires

https://www.toyotires.com/media/1475/rv_inflation_tables.pdf Here is the Toyo chart. https://blobs.continental-tires.com/www8/servlet/blob/912082/faa60148e1ae1092bd367a29287a88a5/continental-air-pressure-table-data.pdf And here is the Continental chart

RE: Tire Pressure Chart For Continental Tires

Okay perhaps it is the speed difference, but nonetheless SGTJoe's post that all of the same size tires have the same load table is wrong. Find the table for your size and model and use that.

RE: Tire Pressure Chart For Continental Tires

I can't seem to find a psi chart for Continental tires. Anyone on here that can steer me to one. Sorry, but Tire Load Tables are NOT specific to a brand of tires. They are published by tire standardizing organizations such The Tire and Rim Association (US based) and are the same regardless of the manufacturer. You can sometimes find portions of those tables published by tire manufacturers, but those are only reproductions of what the standardizing body published. So to answer your question: ANY table will work. Just make sure the table you use is appropriate to the application. There will be difference based on what kind of vehicle and the intended service. Then why do two different Michelin tires of the same size 295/80R22.5, the ZXA2 and the H Coach have different load tables, and why do my Toyo's of the same size have yet again different tables? Maybe that works for car tires, but it doesn't work for large truck/RV tires

RE: Impression on new coach

Just remember you Diplomat or Dynasty, you list both in your post is actually a REV product so you would do much better asking for Fleetwood or American coach people to help.

RE: Aladdin tank monitor

Reprogramming the system is easy. You can get new sensors from Cat-Con, they are easy to replace. Replace or clean the sensors, and leave the tanks empty, go to the Aladdin screen and find system setup, enter the code 1218 to get into the calibration. You will see what the raw value is reading for the empty tanks, enter that value on the appropriate tanks, then go to full value, it will give you a formula depending on the depth of the tanks, most are 12", calculate and enter that value. Done. I agree the Aladdin readings for the tanks is not completely accurate, but it has been working okay for us in 12 years of full timing in our coach.

RE: Aladdin System (Update)

So this doesn't tie into the Aladdin system? No, SeeLevel does make a system to tie into the Aladdin but the connection is about 120 bucks more and I didn't think it was worth the extra $$$. I never could get the Aladdin to calibrate correctly and I think it was because of the cheap phone cords they used. It also appeared the sensors were placed in an awkward location so I trashed that whole mess and went with sensors OUTSIDE the tanks. Unlike inside sensors, there's nothing to impair their reading. I put 10 gallons in each tank and they registered pretty accurately. I'm happy with the system. $179/system and $20/wiring/loom/switch....Dennis For the most part I don't have trouble with my Aladdin system, other than having to clean or replace a sensor a few times in over 10 years. And the location of the sensors in our coach makes it very easy to change out. But, the quest for accuracy from the Sealevel system intrigues me, although I think I would still want to use the Aladdin. Thanks
