RE: 2007 HR Imperial 43DSQ parked in '09 and not started-moved

The problem with RVs that sit unattended is that a small roof leak can do horrendous damage over the course of 10 years. Occupied ones have the leaks noticed and fixed but this one..... I'd sure pass.

RE: Bye Bye DuraMax

Next year Ford introduces their new V8 with a heavy duty 10 speed auto. Might be worth waiting for....

RE: Norcold 1200

Yup, it's automatic. If you start having cooling issues, first thing to check are the outside fans. The sensor for them is on the top of the coils on the back and is known to fail. Cheap, easy fix.

RE: Windsheild Drapes

If you can affords it, MCD power on windshield. MCD manual on sides.

RE: sparkplugs and wires

I've never been disappointed by Motorcraft parts. The originals last a long time and the vehicle is falling apart before the replacements go bad...

RE: Michelin tires

Mine are 4.5 years old and are getting quite cracked. Will replace them before next long trip. AND it's not sunlight that does it, looking at the inner rears they're just as cracked as the outers.

RE: Camper Cover

Be careful with your location. Here in the Reno NV area, you can't tie a cover tight enough to keep the wind from beating up your paint job with the cover.

RE: Gas pumps and Flying J

Flying J and Pilot are notorious for that. The one in Fernly NV works sometimes, not others. It is what it is. With the discount up to 5 cents, it's worth the walk...Especially if you are really low on fuel.

RE: 12 volt power switch

The switches fail more often than the relay so I'd start there, then check the relay.

RE: 2002 Bounder whistles

X2 on the drain holes. There are 4 on the bottom of the window frame. The front 2 are the culprit. Just cover them, looking at them, you will see water only enters at the rear of the frame anyway. The rear 2 drains will handle any water just fine. As the RVs get older, the plastic covers fall off. They don't really help cut the wind noise near as well as some black electrical tape will. Come back and let us know what worked.

RE: Time for a Leveling System Upgrade?

The problem I had with mine was quite simple to fix. Removed the motors and taking off the end cap found that residual lubrication, dust, dirt, and particles from the brushes made the brushes stick in their holders. Was simply a matter of cleaning the brushes and brush holders to remove the crud and get the brushes free. Our coach was over 10 years old at the time and the brushes did not seem noticably worn, they were just binding enough in the holder to lose contact with the commutator and then the motor would not run. Was very intermittant failure. Once I cleaned them, they never failed again. We finally traded the coach for a new Winnebago with Lippert hydraulics, had a 2+ year battle with noisy jacks, Lippert finally relented and sent us new jacks. Noise now gone.

RE: Rotella for GAS Engines

Looks like just another synthetic oil to me.

RE: blackstone griddles

My worry, too. If you have it at home and use it every day, no prob! BUT sitting in the storage bay for 3 weeks until the next outing???????

RE: Valterra pull handle

If your grey and black tank valves get the LEAST BIT sketchy, go here! The alternative is far too nasty to gamble on! https://www.amazon.com/Valterra-T1003VPM-Bladex-Waste-Handle/dp/B000BGK22E/ref=sr_1_2?crid=16K8F1KQ005M2&keywords=valterra+3+inch+waste+valve&qid=1554709926&s=gateway&sprefix=valterra%2Caps%2C173&sr=8-2

RE: insurance companies and cost

If you are old enough, we've found Hartford through AARP is the cheapest and comes with no charge towing option.
garyemunson 04/02/19 04:20am Travel Trailers

"Recaulking" windows is usually futile. The flexing of RVs quickly breaks the seal and the leak resumes. Every 10 years or so it's really necessary to remove the windows, clean off old caulk then replace the rope caulk between the frame and wall. Not all that difficult with 2 people and a ladder. Remove all the screws on the inside, remove the inner part and start pushing the window out. The outside guy should have a putty knife handy for the few spots of sticky caulk remaining. Once the new rope caulking is installed and window back in place, every year the inside screws need to be tightend to take up the slack from the slowly compressing caulk. After another 10 years it will be squished flat and due for another go-round.
