RE: Wiper Motor Fuse Location in Thor Vegas

You might try asking the folks over at the Thor forum. www.thorforums.com I used to have a Thor ACE and those folks were helpful. As for the fuses I know on my ACE I had two separate fuse blocks inside on the drivers side. One was on the firewall and the other on the side wall. Both hard to get to.

RE: jack pads

I was parked in a field for a rally when it rained and rained some more. The yellow lego things sunk may be 2+ inches. I was lucky to get the jacks up. When home and ordered Jack pads from Outrigger (bigfoot) and are they great. I got the 15x15x1.5 and can not be happier. I would check them out. https://www.outriggerpads.com/for-rvs/

RE: Graceland RV Park & Campground

Was in Memphis this past Sept., did not stay at Graceland. When we visited Graceland the park is more or less right there. If I had not book a 5night stay at Tom Sawyers that would be my next place. Side note plan on almost a full day at Graceland. By the time you go on the Graceland tour then they have building after building of all Elvis stuff. Its worth the time. We did a full day at Beale street, Sun Studio etc. If you are into Zoos there's another full day, great zoo however.

RE: pressure washers

I have always used a pressure washer on my units. I do however make sure of a couple things. Try and go with the graphics so as not to get under the edge. I always use the fan type spray never the full pressure one. Over the years I have never seen a problem. I put a diluted turtle wax, wash and wax product in the soap reservoir. Wet down the a part of the rig spray the wash and was on. I then use a brush made for RVs to help remove the dirt. Rise off and go to next section, and so on

RE: Winter Storage

2) You should have a separate switch that turns just the invertor off. It is most likely on the invertor display panel. There is no need for it to be on because you are on shore power. 3) I believe (could be wrong) but they are referring to things like the ant. power boost, frig, water heater, TV, etc. things that draw power. There will always be some 12v draw and 110 draw but you have taken down most it. Remember to check your battery water levels monthly

RE: Estes park colorado

A couple years ago we stayed at the KOA there. I am not a fan of KOA but we wanted FHU, went to Estes in fall to see and hear the Elk Bugle. That's worth it!! Anyway the KOA was a typical one close together etc. There is one between the KOA and the park but can not remember the name.

RE: Niagara Falls scow moved

Was there just this August its something to see. You have to wonder how its been able to stay it one spot that long. I do believe something will or should be done, as DW said how would you like to be on one of the boats and that thing went over the falls. One side if possible to get a recording of it would be great, on the other it could be dangerous coming over the falls.

RE: South Dakota, July 2020

Great trip. The badlands and wall can be done from one campground. As can Custer, Rushmore, crazy horse. Have not been to deadwood but it may fall into that not having to move area. We stayed at Sleepy Hollow RV park in Wall. Great spot for both the city and Badlands, while there do not forget the Missile Soul tour. Stayed at Ft. WeLikit rv park in the city of Custer. Found it to be a great park and well within driving for all that is around that part of SD. Where ever you end up staying make your plans very early as you will be going there in the middle of the season.

RE: MasterTow Dolly

I have a RoadMaster dolly, it sounds like they are built about the same. I would not drive very far with a broken support arm. Maybe towing without a car on it would be ok for awhile. Other than that call Master Tow and get an expert to give advise.

RE: Lake Superior Circle Tour

We did the northern part this past year. Started out staying 5 nights at Two Harbors city park. This is a great place, they have made the new section so MH can drive in and look over the water. Much to see and do all along the the North west shoreline. From there we went to Thunder Bay and stayed at Fort William provincial park. I was not over taken by this park, it just seemed that they did not finish building it. We stayed 4 nights and saw a lot of things. The park itself is filled with history along with the area. You have to make it a must to visit Kakabeka Falls park while there, its great. From there we went to Wawa and stayed 2 nights a the GS park.The campground was nice but very tight both in width and length. I had no Verizon signal. Between Wawa and Sault Ste. Marie there is no gas stations so make sure you fill up at Wawa. To me this is one of those things that I can say I have done. I thought I would be traveling and seeing the water most of the way. This does not happen, at least it you stay on 17. We did not turn off and venture elsewhere while moving from one spot to another. I will say its more hilly than I thought. No problem with boarder crossings either way.

RE: First Diesel Pusher Drive

To me the hardest part to get used to was the air brakes. To me they work so much different that the conventional brakes. I have always left a lot of room to brake but it seems with air brakes you need just a little bit more. You need to plan ahead more also, for braking and turning. Like you said its parking lot time, work on those right hand 90 turns. I have found that my 38' DP turns better than my old 30' gas.

RE: Newbie from Alaska

My thoughts would be a large class C, but a good size A would be better. In my hunting for MH, I realized that a C is still hard for the DW to get up and out of the passengers seat while moving. I think with all of your live stock an A would provide them a little more room. If I was you I would be looking a class A. I could be wrong, but I believe you will still need to winterize your rig. I do not believe there is a true all season rig that you can just leave the water in and get up and go. Maybe if you kept your rig plugged in with furnace running etc. you may get by. I would check with the folks up in your neck of the woods for that information.

RE: Slides- Important stuff AND what they don't tell you.

1) When I go looking the first thing is, what can I get to with the slide in. Important for me is the frig, toilet, bed (DW likes to nap while traveling), microwave. Those models are out there it just takes a little work to find. 2) I would never open a slide part way, but that's just me. I feel you are asking for trouble by doing that. I know that the schwintek brand of slide states all over do not stop slide part way. If you do the motors will get out of sync and you will be in for big problem. 3) As for power pedestals an easy way is to cut a rope the length of travel the slide makes. Go out and check with the length of rope if you clear the power pedestal. Making sure that all of the seals are in good shape and in the correct location will make a big difference in the water proof issue. Having a awning topper on the slide makes a big difference in keeping the top clean. I have had two rigs with no plumbing on the slide and one rig with plumbing on the slide. I am in favor of no plumbing, propane, on the slide. I had no problem with it but I only had the rig a couple of years. I could just see things happening easier with moving pipes. Out of all I think the most important is what can you get to with the slide in.

RE: 2016 Forest River Forester ws mbs low water drain

Look under your unit for pipes coming through the floor. I had a 5th wheel that had two side by side and then a third by itself. I also had a past MH that had two sets of two.

RE: Electrical issue

With everybody else it sounds like a bad or tripped GFI outlet. Let us know what you find.

RE: Upholstery needs to be redone

I would think each shop is different as to the removal of the item. I would take pictures measurements etc. with you to the upholstery shop and see what they say. But yes a standard upholstery shop should be able to replace the fabric, just finding that shop could be a challenge.

RE: Need some Ideas

What was the material that the wood screws were screwed into? If wood,an old trick I learned way back. Take some sawdust mix it with wood glue to form a very thick paste. Force as much of the paste into the hole as possible, once it dries drill a polite hole for the screw. There may be some already made material however that will do the same thing.

RE: Dog Chwing resistant entry mat

You should be able to go to any pet store and find what you are looking for. When our dog was young we found a product, just spray on and the dog would not go near it. I can not remember the name, but it work great.

RE: Leveling Jack Pads

Thank you all, however I guess I should have mentioned that the pads were for a Diesel pusher. I also must have failed to mention I was concerned about parking of grass which is a far piece from a solid surface to park on. Why not plywood, I believed that given the sinking jack foot print, the weight of the MH plywood would only break, yes I could glue two 3/4 together. My choice was to go to a company that has been around for many years (1991) plus something made in the good old USA. https://www.outriggerpads.com/
