RE: 1994 Holiday Rambler Endeavor 30CB

Not much differance in MPG's betwen a samll class A and Class C motorhome. Class A will be somewhat more comfortable to move aroumd for the passenger while on the road. Most A's have levelors and only some C's do so in my mind the A wins out. As for gas milage and maintenance, they are pretty much the same.

RE: Air-conditioner availability

I work in the HVAC industry and never seen it this had. All the circuit boards, capacitors and relays are made in China and probably sitting off shore along the west coast. I struggle to get air conditioners and even enough parts to make repairs for my customers and this has been an issue for the last 6 months. While a year is a bit much, its not all that unusual.

RE: Newmar Slidout seal

You have a 2021 coach and Newmar replaced the seal twice? Or was it replace by a Newmar dealer? Somthing is just not right. I once owned a 1998 Newmar that I sold in 2012 and all the slide seals were original. You may wamt to have a conversation with Newmar about this problem. Your coach is way too new to have this problem.

RE: 12 Volt reset ??

Not at all unusual find a 12 volt reset will get an inoperable slide to work. It has happened to me before. A different time I lost the ability to read current for L1 on the EMS panel. A reset of the 12 volts and all was well. I for one need to learn that when 12 volt dc things stop working, a simple hard 12 volt reset is the first thing to do before tearing into the electronics.

RE: Winnebago quality

I have a Winnebago and have owned 3 prior RVs Newmar, Fleetwood (pre Bankruptcy) and a REV Products Ambassador. I feel the quality is as good or even better than any of them. The customer service has been better than any I have preveously owned.

RE: Black water tank overflow

Winnebago has always plumbed the 1/2 bath sink into the black tank on the 43 and 45 foot Class A rigs along with both toilets. The grey tank gets connected to the rear sink, kitchen sink and shower.

RE: Adam Graphine ceramic coating

Ceramic coating might last 7 months but I hardly thing is could last 7 years unless you never wash the motorhome and maybe keep it in a garage. If it doesn't last you could never prove it because it's invisible and can't be measured.

RE: A/C Issues??

You say both are set to 75 and the rear is 74. That means the rear is cycling the compressor off because the temp is satisfied and the compressor is cycled off. Just leave the front set to 75 and bump the rear down to 68. You need both running to drop the temp up front where all the glass is. At night you can bump the rear back up because you won't have the sun load on the front of the coach.

RE: Advice please

Body moldings on cars and trucks is installed with 3M VHB tape. If it holds door amd trim molding on a pickup it should hold on an RV

RE: 2012 bounder scare light

While some refer to that light as a scare light its not meant to scare anyone or anything so putting a switch by the bed would serve no purpose. The light is to help when hooking up after dark so the dash switch makes the most logical place to install it and why its over the wet bay.

RE: Winnebago Vista front end noise

I had that happen to me after doing the Cheap Handling Fix on an 09" F53 chassis. Somehow a the factory sway bar would tap the bottom of the coach when coach body would sway a little. I had front air bags on that coach so the fix and the bags didn't play well together. Look closely at your Super Steer sway bar.

RE: Stability Issues

There are a few that that have had issues. Maybe some people expect there class A to handle like a car or SUV and maybe there are some lagit issues with coach handling but I have owned a Newmar 34' FRED, a Fleetwoof 37' gasser, a HR 39' diesel and my current coach 43' Winnie. None of them had handling issues and I never needed to do any suspension work on any one of them.

RE: Plug and play wiring harness for Jeep

You could use the Mopar 82216358AA wire harness made by the manufacturer.

RE: Automatic air tank drain valves

Look a little closer. My lanyards were ty-wrapped to my frame and I had to cut the ty-wraps and stretch them out through the frame. That's probably how mine left freightliner and neither Winnebago or General RV took the time to do a very good PDI.

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.
