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.

RE: Gas Vs Diesel Yah-Yah-Yah!

I agree with Dutch, floor plan is the most important thing. We chose our current coach for floor plan and length. No one offered a 43' with a gas motor so for us it wasn't an option. I have owned a high end gasser and while it was a great coach I never liked looking for fuel every 325 miles of travel and there are a lot of benefits that come with traveling in a diesel coach.

RE: Holes in exhaust

If your local muffler shop won't work on it without it being lifted just remove the pipe and take it to them. Have them fabricate a new pipe and install it yourself. Or maybe a 100 dollar bill will persuade them to do something they normally don't do.

RE: Which of these 3 battery brands would you choose?

I would go with Trojan as they are are very high quality battery and worth a few bucks more than other wet cells. The seller can say what ever they want but T 105's are wet cell not AGM's

RE: Fish bowl cooling class A

You say the roof a/c's are high capacity and cool well when parked. If the heat is an issue while traveling and not when parked check you firewall for air leaks. Often manufactures are sloppy sealing penetration's for hoses, wires and steering columns. Air pressure on the front of a coach can push a lot of hot air through a coach and out slide seals, windows and around fans.

RE: Inside sewer smell

Commonly called "studor vents" by the commercial plumbers around here.

RE: A few mods done today

All good mods. Nice work on the vents. Looks like they were meant to be there from the factory. One of my favorite hobbies is doing changes and upgrades to the coach.

RE: oil leak

Running a quart low can't cause a leak and really won't hurt anything but it is better to keep it on the full line. Like others have suggested, you probably spilled a little.
