RE: Any 80mph PLUS - class Aers still on here ?

I occasionally slow down to 80, when I'm not in a hurry.

RE: Non-level campsites Class A

Carry some 2x12 or better 2x16's to drive your low wheels onto so that you start fairly level. Then level so that your wheels aren't hanging in the air. It may be necessary to put a few boards under your jacks depending on how much travel your jacks have.

RE: Awning leak

The bigger issue is water coming in around a closed basement door and the furnace panel. That shouldn't happen no matter how hard it rains

RE: Winnebago High beam replacement

Just like a double pane window, if the seal fails eventually you will end up with moisture in and 6 or 7 years is about average before failure. During the day the air inside heats up, expands and leaks out. During the night the air inside cools, condenses and pulls in moist night air. Any metal inside will eventually rust and replacement is the best fix but it will happen again some day. Sealed, glass beams back in the 60's and 70's seldom had the problem but the foreign manufactures don't properly seal the plastic.

RE: Safe-T-Alert RV Carbon Monoxide/Propane detector

Drew has a good plan. The detector draws such little power that it probably isn't fused separately anyway.

RE: Mirada Select Steering

You should first check that your Safe-T-Plus is installed correctly and has been adjusted to drive straight.

RE: Getting help from ALISON

Always a **** shoot with almost any customer service. There are a few that really shine though, Winnebago and Freightliner have been the best for me.

RE: Convection oven - phooey, Switched to Toaster oven

I agree that the convection oven takes a long time to preheat but it does a great job once you get used to it. I also carry a toaster oven in one of the cabinets but seldom use it for some reason. Maybe next time out I'll do some cheese toast and chili.

RE: 2012 Sightseer slides, do they all need to be opened?

It makes no difference on how many slides are out on any motorhome that has levelers. If you weigh your RV you would find that the 2 sides are not equal in weight anyway.

RE: Aftermarket wheel up grade

A larger wheel will take a larger tire so expect your speedometer and odometer to be off considerably. You could use a good GPS to monitor speed

RE: Time to replace batteries??

If you depend on the batteries, replace them. If you only use campgrounds with electrical hook-ups, you may get some more time out of them but 7 years was a pretty good life for wet cells. If it were my coach, they would be replaced because bad batteries are a pain and in the scheme of things, the cost is small compared to what we spend on our RVing .

RE: Question on Winnebago class A's

Both slide walls and fixed walls are constructed of the same material. I am surprised Winnebago customer service couldn't confirm that

RE: Leveling jacks

first you should extend the jacks and clean them with WD 40. You should also consider replacing the springs because the are more than likely original and my be getting weak.

RE: stay pluged in or not

I have owned 4 different class A's and have always kept them plugged into a 50 amp service when at home. If you have a smart charger your batteries will just be maintained on a float charge. My current batteries are AGM so that makes life a bit easier.

RE: Gen leaking fuel

After checking all the hose connections I would start at the carburetor. First by checking the gasket around the fuel bowl and the gasket on the drain. next check the float to see if it has an open seam and getting fuel in it, preventing it from closing off the fuel supply.

RE: Do you run house AC while on the road

For Memorial Day weekend I traveled from north Florida to central Florida and back during the heat of the day, 90 plus. Just me and the wife, we only used dash air and were quite comfortable sitting up front. It got warm in the back but we never felt it up front. If had passengers the roof a/c's would have been on

RE: Anyone travel with a Dish Hopper?

I have always found manually aiming a dish is a PITA. I carry a Tailgater and use it when ever I can't get a clear signal from the roof dish. Its a pretty simple operation using the 211 receivers.

RE: Wanting to install Ceiling Fan in Bedroom

If you decide on a ceiling fan I recommend one that is reversible. Ours is quiet and moves more air in reverse due to the ceiling height but it still has the wall switch and no pull chain or light.

RE: New To the Forum

Congratulations on your new rides. Have you chosen a trailer yet? A steel tandem axel trailer is pretty heavy and you will be hard pressed to find an aluminum one for less than half of your tow set-up quote. I think the Bronco Sport weighs in at around 37,000 lbs. so you may be over the tow rating of your new 36LA with steel.

RE: dinging towing

Well there is one good thing about the magazine is it can't get any worse.
