RE: Water heater Anode

My current rig the previous owner also put a spigot at the drain location. My heater did not require an anode rod anyway. This is why I answered your question. Every spring and fall while doing the winterizing and dewinterizing I like to flush out the water heater. I bought on of the plastic wands to get into the heater and flush out anything thats there. Once I dewinterize water stays in the heater til fall. It just made no sense for me to keep the spigot. Different side of question

RE: De-winterizng an RV

rk911 gave you some great advice. Let me add and maybe go a different route. I am thinking of sanitizing the water lines. Look at the water pump, hopefully you will see a extra hose coming from a valve that may have a cap on the end. This hose and valve is used for two things one to winterize by sucking the RV Pink stuff out of the gal. jug into the lines. The second is sanitizing the lines after you flush them out with fresh water. Take a gal. jug fill with fresh water and bleach (i forget the amount of bleach to water) turn on pump one faucet at a time until you smell the bleach. Leave the bleach water in the lines for a short time. Then flush with fresh water again. I would take this time to clean out the water heater. There is a plastic wand made for that. I think walmart even carries it. The wand will go in the water heater and hopefully clean out any particles that should not be there. Good Luck

RE: Motorhomes with 19.5 vs 22.5 tires

I had a 29' gasser with 19.5 tires. I myself did not really feel that there was an issue. It was an entry level coach that to me handled all right. After a couple years traded for a 37' DP with 22.5 tires. The ride is great so is the cost of tires. Its not fair to try and compare the ride as my coaches were about as far apart as possible. I think its going to be hard to compare apples to apples on thin one.

RE: Suggestions

Not knowing where in western Kentucky you are, but thats ok. You should try Branson MO, its full of things to do and plenty of FHU RV parks. The reason I said Branson is to me you did not really say which way you wanted to go.

RE: Dead Refrigerator

I do not have a Dometic, but I did replace the cooling unit for my Norcold unit. I am a believer in JC Refrigeration, from their products to customer service. I did not want to change out the frig for many reasons, we do not boondock and am always plugged in. I went with the 120v replacement cooling method. Its an easy DIY wife and I spent maybe total of 3hrs taking out puting back. I would recomment at least looking into them. https://jc-refrigeration.com/

RE: Gatlinburg/Pigeon Forge fall camping?

Living in Branson MO which has the same wounderful humidity as the Pigeon Forge area I totally understand. We in fact travel north from mid June to mid Sept. to get away from the humidity. This year we are spending the time in your "mitten" starting with the thumb and ending on the west side. Anyway we are stopping in the Pigeon Forge area on way home. I saw alot of posts of different places to say. As FHU rvers most state parks are out. Never staying here but reviews and location made sence to me. We are resting the tires at Up The Creek RV park https://www.upthecreekrvcamp.com/ As for the timing most of the humidity will be gone by September as will the kids. Good Luck enjoy

RE: 30 vs 50 amp electrical issue help

Let me ask a few questions to just clear my mind. The cord, you said it has 4 prongs normally that would say 50amp. Question is the cord plugged into the trailer or wired directly? Reason I ask is two fold one if plugged into trailer how many prongs is it plugging into? If both have 4 prongs it would be almost safe to say you have 50amp. If direct wired maybe, just maybe the dealer or someone only connected one hot wire. That just does not make sense but stranger things happen. You did not say if you had power at campground before going dark. Without being able to look at breaker box kind of hard to figure things out. I would see what dealer has to say and I guess go from there. Good Luck

RE: Securing a Regular Microwave in an RV: Affordable Solutions?

If the mic fits past the front frame work. Take a piece of wood stain to match what you have. Make a lip so mic will not slide out. You could even screw cups, for the mic feet to fit into in the bottom of compartment. Good Luck

RE: Metal Structure on RV's Rear: What Is Its Purpose?

I also believe its for a BBQ grill. As for how to use it have no idea. I do believe its needs a certain grill for it to work.

RE: Missing orange cover on marker light; Water leakage concerns

That looks like a normal marker light. I would look at an auto parts store or one that is rv related. I know when I was in Canada and needed a light for my tow dolly I came across I believe they are call Canada Tire. That store had everything. As for making a leak proof seal. A small bead of silicone or even plumbers putty would take care of it.

RE: Fresh water tank location in 1999 Windsor class A motorhome

As much as I hate to send folks to different forums! It may benefit you to try irv2. Due to the age of your unit you should find some good information there. Go to owners forums then to Monaco. Other than just wanting to know was there are reason why you needed tank location. Designer's are really crafty on how they put things between frame work. Figure the fuel tank, fresh water, grey water, black water. all have large tanks that have to be placed between the frame work. Good Luck safe travels

RE: The time has come to replace the cooling unit in my fridge.

I do not have Dometic but Norcold which really does not matter. Two years ago I had the same problem. I did not want to replace the frig just the cooling unit. I went with JC Refrigeration https://jc-refrigeration.com/ I went with their totally 120v unit as we are plugged in all the time, never boondock. JC Refrigeration folks are so customer friendly and so helpful it makes replacing the unit almost a pleasure. It took my wife and I about 3 hours total time, as we did it over a couple days. It is really a great DIY project. We had a few hickups along the way emailed JC about problem and got answer within minutes of sending.

RE: Genny won't start a/ trying to turn on while on shore power.

I would first off like said make sure the battery disconnects are in the correct position. When you pushed the switch to start the gen. did you hear it try and start or was there no sound at all? Start the engine and while its running try starting the gen. I could be wrong on this but I think the gen. gets started with the engine batteries not the house. You may also want to go over to the Winnebago Owners forum for some good info also. https://www.winnieowners.com/forums

RE: Reviews on thousand trails camping pass?

Thousand Trails like Coast to Coast and the others are only as good as you use them. I had Coast to Coast for 3 years and never used it. There were never any parks where we were traveling to. I have gotten more bang for my buck using the 10% off from Good Sam and the same for KOA. Take a look at their offered RV parks and if they are in your traveling area maybe they would work. Good Luck

RE: Smoke Detectors

I could be totally wrong on this, but for some reason I remember reading that there are special detectors for RV's. Not saying house ones would not work but for some reason I remember that there was a difference. Might want to check that out.

RE: NORCOLD Refrigerator Removal

Have you thought about just replacing the cooling unit? I replaced my norcold cooling unit two years ago with a totally 110v system works great. You may want to look into JC Refrigeration products. Its really an easy DIY process. https://jc-refrigeration.com/ Its not getting the old one out but the new one in. A lot of folks have done it so hopefully one of those will help. Good Luck

RE: Campgrounds along the Great Lakes in WI and MN

Lets start with WI. Door county, is full of shops and cherrys. When at Door County we stay at Hy-Lands Court https://www.hylandcourt.com/ As we like the FHU that private parts give. Great smoked fish at little store at Gills Rock. Another do not miss is the famious "fish boil" not only good eats but fun to watch. Our go to spot in MI is Two Harbors Burlington Bay City Park https://www.twoharborsmn.gov/city_departments/burlington_bay_campground It may be to late to get reservation there but worth the try. Lots of water falls to see along the coast
