RE: backup monitor

BE aware that newer Ford chassis Class Cs with LED marker lights have a separate marker power supply that is around 11 volts and will not reliably drive wireless backup cameras tapped into them.

RE: Towing 4-wheels down.....braking required for vehicle?

The thing is, your state may not require braking on a towed vehicle depending on weight but there are plenty that do. That law is not a reciprocal one so if you get in a wreck and your equipment does meet the requirement for the state you are in, you can be in serious financial and legal trouble. Not worth taking the chance!

RE: Repair Price

PM me and I'll email you a copy of the service manual for the Evans system. It's 90% 3rd party.

RE: Water inside refrigerator

Put that little plug back in and be sure to regularly clean it. It's primary purpose is to block insects who smell the food and take the highway to it...

RE: Norcold Freezer/refrigerator

If it is in a slide, be sure the outside fan(s) works.

Dometic thermostat replacement.

I don't want to have to re-invent the wheel so thought I'd ask here. Has ANYONE deleted the overly complex Dometic touch thermostat and just installed a simple home digital? On other RVs with non-Dometic ACs I've installed simple box store digitals but since Dometic uses the "control box" scheme to digitize the signal between the thermostat and AC, that's a non-starter. As I have yet to go rooftop and dig into the AC, I'm hoping someone can enlighten me as to the specifics of what that control box is doing other than making sure you go to Dometic anytime the thermostat fails. I've accepted the fact I'll need to somehow thread a standard thermostat control cable from the AC to the thermostat location but am curious if that control box has been totally integrated into the AC wiring or just an interface I can delete without much effort. Has anyone done this or am I the first?

RE: Very Poor Results From Heng's Roof Coating

A 16 year old roof is done. The coating stuck to the surface it was applied to, the surface just pulled away from the substrate. Anything you put on it will do the same. Replace the roof membrane.

RE: Splendede washer lint filter cleanout

With a bunch of washer owners here, what is the consensus on Splendide washers? Are they well built and reliable? I just got a motorhome with washer prep and have realized there several to pick from (Splendide, Equator, LG). Anyone have comments on them? Thanks!

RE: What Chassis do I have

F-350 and F-53 are not the same.

RE: Walkie Talkies

These are much newer tech than the old Motorolas and far cheaper. Be advised you are supposed to apply for a license to use these or the Motorolas. The exam is quite simple and there is a free online "tutor" program where you just go through it and once you pass it's test, you will pass the real thing. These have the advantage of MANY channels including NOAA weather and can access the Ham radio repeaters to give you coverage almost anywhere. They serve as emergency communication from almost any location. https://www.ebay.com/itm/403225116390?_trkparms=ispr%3D1&hash=item5de216fee6:g:u78AAOSwq~ZhMb5x&amdata=enc%3AAQAGAAACkPYe5NmHp%252B2JMhMi7yxGiTJkPrKr5t53CooMSQt2orsS%252BMKizvpuEDUfX4dvRWfUzYEhLJRWcbIwQMEwgnolK5H9FpRk1g2r6Zhyy2W0L%252BqtTmBnxcrix%252FZIK6uydBa1WbdnB1CeHfRLMItrrReFNqhL1q6YU8l%252FF92OlKBQZJPshiuA3aRDQtBMGQD7mqtP8PxVgRorq76rmWzr%252F2a%252F39a1kTk3WARkYB1A20dwt8HKeEkoQNiOX7nsdwt4EeNEnYA15rc6Bl4eZVWlrNh7I%252BgeOyfFzpfihgYMTOqcgc7dTEwqA8WsOuriXHip8cT5C9BbDTwhyQaz5q4qU2sML8LZ6XpNTIipkJ9mtAIpkiyTnXGwz1LIv3gInujSGBxYDNgCO7bBD56rVazCeQa6CMwzRsLbpqpaoIwai%252BaUEutqvqDS32wFFMrl9UxHEQvo98AEOm56MVpPTHTswLRJdPeOB%252F4TIle69E%252FNye8PmfidWY1KHa3dpgd39EkmoMigebwfyKQhchny7UZa1I%252F3e1%252Bh5YnxfsxkmE5iywLlNS4Gks4eZfdGzvyL0zoipNRREEKIJ14wwJAPvyN%252BePOt6KMKIhbwicUD4bH%252Fkst0mL2Qzmp1%252BdscvOTngcqWad7ulV6mDtnqqiyp7zADLFKWhIrvp5CVxeO7IZSZ5Tyz7LL7Kc%252Bof6mg6K%252BNQYM6tXzhktgm7mo9daNvv%252BK17hOGcsCQxYiGYOOy20BhhCfbxp0Ztf%252F3N6wugDhzViXD7mPbMkxHNu2bafOt6faeuCAWSADdknZbRlERkjNQVierWR5XqIAxGES%252FUTRAiHCj%252F9W7OR5LdSWWCAXFuQIztixd6ZcullhwTRV4R949SUdyTtmC%7Cclp%3A2334524%7Ctkp%3ABFBMxPbi2t9f

RE: Rivian vs Tundra Tow Test

No one even mentioned that you can always make your own EV fuel with solar on the roof of your house. Pretty hard to drill an oil well and put up a refinery in your back yard.

RE: atwood GHC6A-10E water heater

The Motoraid unit is Winnebago specific. You can source one from them. In my opinion, it's a worthwhile feature, providing you with a tank of hot water for free on arrival at your campsite. Why are you looking for a complete water heater?

RE: Replacing carpet with laminate

Best to use vinyl planks, the SPC type (stone polymer composite). The WPC (wood polymer composite) is not temperature stable enough for RV use. Neither is laminate flooring. The extreme heat and cold temperature swings in a stored RV will cause the joints to come apart and your floor to buckle up.

RE: onan fuel pump

They are all made in China. Just buy the cheapest one you can find. If the OEMs were made any better they wouldn't be failing at the rate that they do. I've never had to go back and replace a cheapie. Cheap Fuel Pump Option

RE: Thinking About a Class C

An overdrive is a VERY expensive upgrade for a 1990 RV. $3500 for the unit plus a lot of install labor plus driveshaft modification machine shop work.

RE: How do you cancel an ESP?

Be careful cancelling your GAP coverage. RVs depreciate so much that if it did get wrecked, you will likely find yourself FAR underwater without the GAP coverage. You could always walk away but you would ruin your credit for years in the process. The big hazard of buying an RV on credit. As for the service plans, 2M2 is probably right as you have been in it long enough what you get from the cancellation won't be a lot. Crunch the numbers and try to determine if it will be worthwhile to you. As miserable as those contracts are and are such a pain to collect on, you do have SOME protection from them. The pittance they will refund to you may not be worth it.
