RE: Roof reseal

I used Henry’s Tropicool from Home Depot on my EPDM roof. 3 years in and still no issues.

RE: Sway bar issues

A little off topic but when you replaced your springs, did you have the front end aligned to SuperSteer specs. It made a world of difference in my P32.

Dicor Wheel Cover Parts

Since Dicor has stopped producing/distribution of their Wheel products, does anyone know of a replacement that looks the same. I found that Phoenix makes parts but they have a different look or style to them. I am looking specifically for some Wheel cover jam nuts for a Workhorse P32 chassis. 19.5 wheels. Do not know the lug size.

RE: Towed braking system problem

With my Brake Buddy, I attached a piece of 3/4 inch pvc to the handle which gives it space at the seat to clear the seat adjustment lever.

RE: Temp Reg. Question Buying from out of state in California

This may be what your looking for. https://www.dmv.ca.gov/portal/vehicle-registration/license-plates-decals-and-placards/temporary-operating-permits/ One-Trip Permit In lieu of California registration, you can get a one trip permit (for a fee) to move a vehicle: Show Citation 11 When unladen, for one continuous trip from a place within California to a place in or outside California or from outside California to a place in California (by the most direct route). For participation as a vehicular float or display in a lawful parade or exhibition for one round trip from one place to another. The total round trip cannot exceed 100 miles and must be completed within 60 days. A one trip permit is also valid for a nonresident: To move a newly purchased trailer coach into California. Member of the armed forces to move an unregistered trailer coach they own into, out of, or within California. A one trip permit cannot be used to move a crane or trailer coach owned by a California resident. Blank one trip permits may be purchased in volume from any DMV office. Issuing a one trip permit doesn’t affect California tax requirements. For sales and use tax information, contact the Board of Equalization (BOE) at www.boe.ca.gov or 1-800-400-7115.

RE: 2013 Winnebago vista 35b flat towing jeep rubicon

Your route includes some steep mountain passes. Long upgrades and downgrades going over the Sierras and some steep areas around Yosemite. I have done all of that area numerous times over the years in my 2001 Fleetwood Flair towing a 2000 Jeep Wrangler. Without any issues. Take your time and enjoy the scenery. Sounds like a fun trip. Try to pre-plan your fuel stops if you can. Fuel costs can be high closer to the main routes or around the small towns (Lake Tahoe, Yosemite, etc.).

RE: Selling RV, urgent help needed on proper process California

A side note for any vehicle transfer in California. The license plates on your registered vehicle are yours. Take them off of the vehicle and physically surrender them to the DMV. This forces the new owner to register the vehicle in their own name and in a timely matter. Simply submitting the title transfer online does not fully remove you from liability of the vehicle. If you don’t take this step, the new owners can then operate the vehicle under your plates that are attached to your name. Toll evasion is the one issue that comes to mind but a crime committed can also wreak havoc for you. This information was told to me by an employee at the DMV. From the DMV website Does the NRL (notice of transfer and release of liability) remove my name from the vehicle record? No. Only the buyer’s application for transfer, using the endorsed title received from you, can remove your name from the vehicle record. Per dmv.ca.gov: Generally, license plates remain with the vehicle they were issued to. Certain types of plates (personalized environmental, special recognition, or special interest) can be reassigned to another vehicle upon request by the owner and payment of appropriate fees. Sure, you can remove the plates, but the buyer may not be appreciative as they will not be able to legally drive the vehicle home without those plates. If you are that concerned, then go in to the dmv with the seller and do the transfer. I was simply forwarding the information that was told to me by an actual DMV Employee when I last did a vehicle sale. Sorry for trying to be helpful.

RE: Decal replacement

The best way I found to remove the decals was with an Eraser wheel. And it removes the adhesive at the same time.

RE: Water fill connection fitting

Check McMaster Carr. https://www.mcmaster.com/ If they don’t have it, it probably doesn’t exist.

RE: [SOLVED] Bad converter? Low voltage

Verify voltage at the converter as time2roll suggested. If good then check voltage at the cigarette lighter. That could be your problem. Or try connecting to a different power source to see what you get. Check cheap simple things first.

RE: w22 fuel pump

Drive the rv up on some blocks to gain some working space. Empty the tank of most of its contents. Using a floor jack with a 2x4 or 2x6 on it to support the tank, unbolt the tank and slowly lower it down. I tried both metal and plastic fuel line removal tools and neither worked for me. I ended up using a small metal pick to release the tabs on each line. Once everything is disconnected, removing the actual pump is simple. Make sure the top of the tank is clear of debris. I had a handful of walnut shells on mine from some friendly squirrel. Having an extra set of hands is always helpful. Good luck. Let us know how it turns out.

RE: iPad as a GPS device

I recently got a wifi only (non-cellular) iPad. Is there a way to tether the iPad to an iPhone to enable using it as a GPS device? Just found this after I posted my response. “AirLocation is an iOS app that sends GPS data from your iPhone to your Wi-Fi-only iPad. To use it, you activate the Personal Hotspot on the iPhone, connect the iPad to the hotspot and run the app on both devices. Now you can use proper, accurate GPS data to track yourself on the iPad's large screen.” https://www.wired.com/2011/04/airlocation-sends-gps-data-from-iphone-to-ipad/ I couldn’t find the actual app anywhere but it did lead me to numerous other posts both on the internet and YouTube about how to accomplish what your trying to do. Hope this helps.

RE: iPad as a GPS device

I have a slightly different setup than what you are asking. I use a Garmin GPS receiver and connect it to my iPad via Bluetooth. Then use any navigation program you want. I get the large, easy to read screen and great useable features without relying on cell service. I have read that an iPad with cell capability has the gps chip built in. And you do not have to pay for an extra phone number. But to answer your question, I have not tried to connect my iPhone to my iPad for navigation. Only for hotspot use while camping. Good luck.

RE: Walkie Talkies

https://www.ruggedradios.com/ My son uses them when dirt bike riding and said they are amazing. Kinda pricey, but you get what you pay for.
