RE: Buying a Former Rental Class C. How many of us out there?

I've ignore my tank sensors for 10+ years. I listen to the water as the toilet flushes. As the water rises in the tank the sound changes, especially as it approaches the neck. If you listen well you can pretty much gauge when the next flush will cause the toilet to burp. At that point it's time to dump.

RE: Raised toilet, what’s underneath

In my Class C, the toilet is sitting on top of a wheel well. https://live.staticflickr.com/8179/7937499488_7ff97c79f1.jpg

I have a Coleman camp stove (grill on left, burner on right). I have a Stay-A-While Deluxe adapter: https://live.staticflickr.com/8426/7796513374_e038868e0d_n.jpg I connect the 12' gas grill hose that comes with the Stay-A-While to the top port on the adapter and connect the other end to regulator on the Coleman stove - where the butane bottle normally goes.

RE: Replacement keys

When I had my Trimark coach keys duplicated I found that hardware stores and home centers don't carry Trimark double-sided keys. I had to go to a lock smith.

RE: Remote/Built in Genny Question

In the cubby that stores my shore power cable there is a receptacle from the MQ 4000. I plug the shore power cable into the receptacle, then go inside and start the generator. I don't wait for it to be running before I plug in the shore cable. Never had a problem with the appliances. BTW, the Onan MicroQuiet 4000 is misnamed. There is nothing small and nothing quiet about it. :D

RE: Hellwig Sway Bars on 2021 24-footer

Track Bar? What is that? ..... A track bar is installed on the rear axle of a towing vehicle and is most useful if you are towing something. The term: "tail wag" refers to the towing vehicle being wagged side-to-side by what it is towing. A track bar reduces or eliminates in many cases any tail wag. A track bar and a rear sway bar can be installed together. It is not one or the other.

RE: Long Beach, WA to Spokane

When I go to Spokane I break up the drive by going to Wild Horse Casino in Pendleton, OR for a day or 2. They have an RV park (nothing to write home about), commercial truck parking area, an RV parking area, and an Arrow gas station. I use the RV parking area with the other RVers. The casino has a nice buffet and a 5 theater cinema. The buffet has a nice view of Cabbage Patch Hill. I don't know what their present restrictions are. I'm in Chinook right now. This is the route I would take: 101 South to Astoria, OR OR-30 East to Longview, WA (433) - (it's easier than driving WA-4 on the WA side of the Columbia) In Longview - 433 to 432 to I-5 South I-5 South to I-205 South to I-84 East to Pendleton, OR Then double back 30 miles on I-84 West to I-82 West I-82-West to I-395 North to I-90 East to Spokane I have found that Biggs Junction, OR is an easy in/easy out location for fueling. I-395 is a really nice road. You can set the cruise control and enjoy the drive.

RE: Buying a Former Rental Class C. How many of us out there?

all of a sudden I feel old
gotsmart 08/29/21 02:26pm Class C Motorhomes
I had Roadmaster refurbish my 10 year old Falcon 2

Probably the best $75+tax I ever spent. After 11 years of FT in the PNW with the tow bar always attached to the MH, the arms were seizing and I was using a hammer to extend them. Since I'm over here by Astoria, OR I took the tow bar to Roadmaster in Vancouver, WA. They told me that if I had dropped it off before 9 AM they can usually finish refurbishing it and have it ready by the end of the business day. I live on RV time - where 9 AM does not exist. The refurb included cleaning, seals, and several small parts that escape my memory. Additional replacement parts would cost extra. Mine did not need additional parts. Roadmaster did replace the replace the round nuts on the end of each arm with a new version of it (it connects to the collar assembly that the base pin goes through). Hopefully it will last another 10 years.
