RE: Is this doable or am I overlooking something??

As to what CharlesinGA says about campground restrictions—campgrounds are all about the money. If you find one that restricts outlet usage, you could ask to be allow to use more than one if you are willing to offer to pay an additional charge for electricity. Also, sometimes it is easier to ask for forgiveness than for permission!

RE: Adding a new 120 vac circuit and outlet

I agree with Lwiddis. I learned the hard way not to pull everything through the 30 amp RV plug. A separate extension fished out through the slide seal and back to the pedestal solved the problem. Good job on the wiring and outlet though.

RE: Foam Mattress Topper

Hi there—we have used a 2” gel-infused mattress topper from WalMart and are very pleased. We put the foam topper under a mattress cover and used elastic straps to hold the cover tight. Topper doesn’t move much and it has made all the difference in the comfort level.

RE: Reverse shoulder operation

A good friend had this procedure about five years ago and was very pleased with the results. He also had the conventional surgery on the other shoulder. The only setback with the non-conventional method was that when he was in rehab, the therapist over extended the shoulder muscle and tore some of the tissue which resulted in a second surgery to repair. OUCH!

RE: Looking at this 99 Safari Trek deisel

PS—I just checked it out—GO FOR IT! Price is good and there have been many improvements. Coach looks in great condition. Alloy wheels have been added, new toilet, etc. Sounds like a deal to me!

RE: Looking at this 99 Safari Trek deisel

Hi—we had a ‘98 Trek and it was, by far, the best built motorhome we ever owned! Our was a gasser, but a good friend had the same one with a diesel. The diesel in the one in question is a GM 6.5 which is the same one the friend had. Read the reviews for this engine, and, if you can live with what the naysayers say, then make your decision. Another factor to consider is the increased cost of diesel maintenance. Personally, I would not hesitate to seriously consider this motorhome for purchase—I don’t think you can go wrong! Good luck!

RE: Use Verizon IPhone hotspot with Dish Hopper for On Demand?

Yeah, we tried that. Having Verizon 4G LTE with unlimited everything, we thought the hotspot was going to be our answer. What Verizon doesn’t tell you is that when you connect anything to the hotspot the speed drops from the fast 4G to 600mpbs which is slower than the old dial up used to be! Their answer was to sell me another line with a dedicated hotspot just for the TV. Hope this helps.

RE: moving NC to Fl

As far as vehicles and registrations, tags, etc. the fees are much the same except that Florida charges a first-time fee of $275. For each new tag issued.

RE: Roadtrek Water Stains

We have successfully used OxyClean on water stains. Mix the powder in some hot water to dissolve, put in a spray bottle and apply. Let it work a few minutes and wipe off. You might need to wipe several times as it sometimes leaves a white deposit when dry. Stains just disappear!

Constant Convertor?

Hi all—new to us 2000 Sunline TT. Installed new battery two weeks ago. Unit is plugged in and the only thing on is the refer on AC. The cooling fan in the converter runs constantly and has done so for the last week or so. Have had many RVs and never had one where the converter fan ran constantly. What is going on?

RE: is weldwood contact adhesive strong enough?

Weldwood is pretty good stuff and, from experience, I would say you have a 50/50 chance of success in using it. I built a Florida room for a friend who lives full time in Florida and had the same problem. I used Weldwood in putting up some of the moldings and, 10 years later, most of them stayed in place. I believe the ones that needed to be re-done were due to applicator error.

RE: Opinion: 1986 Pace Arrow 27FT Motorhome Chevy Chassis

We owned that model back in the day. As I remember, there were several things that bugged me and made me trade for something else. Overall, it was a good unit and fun to drive. The roof design made not sense to me as it had a radiused edge all around, that, when you were parked dead level, created a swimming pool of water on the roof. Constantly sealing was in order to deal with constant leaks. Another constant was the hot start problem and the exhaust manifold problem that the 454 engines of that era were plagued with. The unit sounds like a good deal at the price and if you are ready to deal with the challenges, go for it!

RE: Rubber roof glue?

Hi—you can use a non-solvent based contact cement. Make sure both surfaces are dry and coat with the non-solvent contact cement. You have to be careful laying the rubber back down as once it makes contact, it cannot be moved. Sort of like applying contact paper.

RE: Benny=18.2 volts?

Darn autocorrect—tag line should read “genny”

Benny=18.2 volts?

Working on a friend’s 1999 Pleasure-Way with an Onan 2800. Generator fires up, puts out 110 volts (?) everything AC works. DC volt meter shows 18.2 volts with genny running. Is the normal or does the genny need work? Thanks.

RE: Android vs Apple

My vote is for Apple. Having had both systems, we find the IOS on IPhones to be much more user friendly and intuitive than the Android platform. Same with the Windows computers—can’t believe we resisted Apple for so long!

RE: Many paged forum?

Thanks Schlep1967! Never thought of that—so used to clicking on “newest” that I never realized how much more there is on the active site.

Many paged forum?

As a long-time member and daily follower of the forum, I am wondering whatever happened to the very active and many paged forum of yore?? Used to be four or five pages, now we are lucky if we get a page at best. What gives? Sorry if this is posted in the wrong place and hope it will be moved to a more appropriate category.

RE: leaking sunroof

I ordered a magnetic sheet which I place over the sunroof. The material is white, the vehicle is white so it matches without being seen. Want to use the sunroof, simply pull off the sheet, roll it up and carry it until the vehicle is parked again. The magnetic sheet, which I bought on Amazon, stays on the roof while driving, no matter how fast I drive. Simple solution, stops the leak and still allows me use of the sunroof.
