RE: My problem now - First DP!

Our 40' Bus looks the same as yours. The ice-maker quit working on ours too. Since we drink bottled water and don't trust our fresh water tank or rv park water to always be bacteria free, we decided to take out the ice-maker. It gives us more room in the freezer. We just buy a bag of ice every couple of weeks and use the original ice bin to keep it in. Just a thought.

RE: Curiosity of RV Park parking?

I've seen trucks hanging outside the end of their pad and partially blocking the roadway. Most of the time when I'm checking in, I look to see the path to my site. If it looks like I can't squeeze through because of a vehicle blocking the road, I ask the mgr to notify the owner that I will need to come through there. The mgr and the offending vehicle owner have always complied. Both mgr and the customer have been nice and courteous about my request.

RE: Diesel fuel prices … how is that affecting your RV travel ?

To answer the OP's question...Usually, we take the Allegro on longer trips and the Isata on shorter trips. Because of the higher price of diesel over gas, we will take the Isata on all trips this summer. The price of gas is about a dollar a gallon cheaper than diesel and the Isata gets 15mpg compared to the Tiffin at 9mpg, so we will be taking the small gasser. We definitely won't be staying home all summer!

RE: Fuse location on engine a/c compressor

Have you checked the low pressure switch itself to see if you are getting power to it? If you haven't it may just be a bad switch. Doug also suggested this...so that will be my next step. Thanks.

RE: Fuse location on engine a/c compressor

Thanks guys for the knowledgeable replies on diagnosing an a/c system. Interestingly, they did not charge me for any freon! I will call them on Tuesday and find out why "no charge" if they had actually added freon. This was a diesel repair facility and likely didn't have an experienced a/c tech. I only did a visual inspection on the inline fuses{nothing melted} and will need to check continuity now. Other than that, I will have to find a shop that specializes in a/c only.

RE: Fuse location on engine a/c compressor

Rick jay and Doug, thanks for the feedback about no compressor running. This is a quote from the invoice. "Checked A/C. Recovered system. Was about a pound low. Charged to 4.2 lbs. Test ran. Clutch is not engaging". I have no idea if they bypassed the low pressure switch. Tiffins suggestion for fuse location was no help. I'm going to have to check every fuse that I can locate.

RE: Fuse location on engine a/c compressor

Apples to oranges, but the fuse for our '14 American Revolution is in an inline holder, buried under the dash, near the evaporator assembly. Not an easy find, even after being told where to look.... There are several inline fuses under the dash. Rather than pay $165 an hour, I picked up the rv and told them I will continue to look for the a/c fuse. Thanks for the suggestion. I'll probably start checking all of them after the holiday.

RE: Fuse location on engine a/c compressor

Thanks for the replies. I did have an a/c shop check freon level and they said it was good. Still hoping someone has a suggestion as to where the fuse might be that I may have overlooked.

Fuse location on engine a/c compressor

The engine a/c compressor doesn't kick on when activating the dash a/c button. There is no power to the wire that is connected to the compressor. I'm guessing that there is a blown fuse as it has worked fine until this spring. I have checked all fuse boxes and cannot locate the a/c fuse. I called Tiffin and they said it was in the battery compartment. I found 4 inline connector fuses in that compartment, but they all looked good and they are not labeled as to what they are for. Does anyone know where this a/c fuse might be on the DP in my signature?

RE: Dentist in Mexico

Guadalajara Dental has been doing excellent work for my wife and myself for a few years now. After crossing through the border entrance, go one block, turn right at the intersection and go about a 100 yards and it will be on the left side of the street. Several friends from Lake Havasu have been going there for several years and highly recommend them also.

RE: Towable vehicles

hotjag1 sadly when they ceased producing the Motorhome Mag they also stopped producing the Dinghy Guide. There has never been one master list, even with the Dinghy Guides you still have to check the actual owners manual. If you have a few makes/model/year post it here and you'll get some thoughts, but you can also google the owners manual for each one if you are unsure. I kind of figured that was going to be the alternative and checking each vehicle separately. Thank-you for confirming what I suspected.

RE: Towable vehicles

I was hoping that there would be a site that I wouldn't need to enter each year individually such as 2020. It appears that the other links listed I would need to subscribe for $29.95 a year as I am not a Good Sam member. The old Motorhome site was available at no charge and I was hoping that would be the case now.

Towable vehicles

For several years I had bookmarked the Motorhome magazine towable vehicles guide. It listed all towables from about 1995 to present. Now, when I click on the bookmark, the page no longer exists. Is there a site that I can bookmark that lists all towable vehicles for the last 20 years? Thanks in advance.

RE: best route from Barstow to Pismo Beach, CA

I have looked at Google and it does look like a fair amount of twisty curves on 58. We head to Pismo Monday morning and I'm still undecided. I'm now liking the looks of the long straights on 46. I do appreciate all the suggestions and recommendations. Monday after my coffee I'm going to have to make a decision!

RE: best route from Barstow to Pismo Beach, CA

Thanks for all the replies. I am leaning towards taking 58 since it is a shorter route and also because of the comment stating that 46 has quite a bit more traffic.

RE: best route from Barstow to Pismo Beach, CA

Thanks everyone. It looks like 58 or 46 is the preferred route. How much further is it to go north to 46 and then backtrack to the 101?

best route from Barstow to Pismo Beach, CA

We are trying to figure out the best route from Bakersfield to Pismo Beach in a 40' motorhome pulling a 22' enclosed trailer. Power and braking aren't a huge concern unless the route is very steep. The main concern is twisty, windy roads not suitable for a 66' combination. I welcome all suggestions, especially first hand experience. Google shows taking 58 towards Bakersfield. then taking 223 to 166 to 101 at Santa Maria. This route looks pretty twisty on the terrain map. What do you guys think? Thanks in advance...Don

RE: Onan diesel generator quits after a few minuthes

I did find the fuel filter on the frame rail and it looks clean on the outside so I don't know if it was changed or not. I will probably replace it tomorrow as that would be an easy fix if it is the problem.

RE: Onan diesel generator quits after a few minuthes

Wow, I always thought I had a 6500w generator. Wolfe 10 was right. It is a 7500w gen. Model #5HDKAJ 11451H. s/n B030472922 I pushed on the top of the rocker switch which I always thought was for the glow plugs. If it is a primer switch, I didn't hear anything from the fuel pump when it was pushed. I am in 75 degree temps if that makes a difference. The last time I got it to run, it ran for 3 minutes and 20 seconds. It is more difficult to start each time. I have over a half tank of fuel according to the gauge which has always been accurate. Hope I answered most questions.
