RE: Side windows are fogged up

I would also recommend RV Fog Doc in Searcy Arkansas.. I had my two front side windows done this last Sept. The price was $500.00 plus tax. In and out in about 6 hours. I went up on Tuesday night, parked and plugged in at their place and they got me in first thing the next day. On the road by 2pm. Very happy with their work and the windows look great. Had called and made an appointment first. If you have the funds, that would be my recommendation. Best to you in whatever you decide Happy travels. Arnold

RE: Interior dash lights flickering

My headlights are fine. I am going to replace the light switch. Thanks, Doug, I didn't know it might be a Ford switch. Will let you know the results.

Interior dash lights flickering

When I pull on the lights for night driving, my interior dash lights flicker. I'm wondering if I need to replace the light switch. Thoughts?

RE: coating rubber roof what have you used

I recently did a complete cleaning of my roof including taking off (all) the old caulk, re-caulking completely and applying three coats of Hengs' (orange can) I used almost two gallons applying with a roller. Took me about a week to complete the whole project. Hard on the knees, body but I am really happy with the results. There are other products that I researched but decided on the Hengs' because of the easy process of application. Good luck with your projects. Let us know what worked for you. We are always interested in the final results. Safe travels. Arnold

RE: Pros and Cons of owning a class A RV

I own an "older" Motorhome with less than 100,000 miles and I would not be afraid to purchase one that had been properly maintained. It sounds as though you are not planning to use it extensively, so why put a lot of money into the RV? Having only owned a class A, I can't speak about a TT but we really like the convenience of traveling in a Motorhome. Many here will give good advice as to what to look for in shopping but you should consider that with a Motorhome, you will most likely need something to tow so you can get around once you reach your destination. If you don't already have that vehicle, it could be an added expense. Something to think about. Let us know what you decide. We are always interested. Safe travels. Arnold

RE: When it rains, It pours--HELP

It is usually advisable that if one of the four coach batteries goes bad, it is best to replace all four at once. I have found that Sams Club or Cosco carry a suitable line of 6 volt deep cycle batteries. I'm sure there are others and the folks on here can be of help there also. On the Tradewinds chart that I have, fuses F17 and F20 are 10 amp and the others on that row are 15 amp. That being said I'm sure those have been replaced over the years on a coach that old and I doubt that 15 amp fuses in those spots would cause a problem. You mentioned the CO2 sensor beeping. That usually occurs when the house batteries are low. It sounds that many of your symptoms might be due to low batteries. I would suggest a check of each one and if necessary, check your charging system. (inverter/Charger). Posting the solution, when you find it , will be of great help to others who may have encountered similar problem. If you would like a copy of this fuse chart I have, PM me a cell phone number or address where I can send you a copy. Happy Travels. Arnold

RE: When it rains, It pours--HELP

F20 shows to be the stereo and fans. On my chart, it is located next to F17. It is on the upper right hand row last fuse to the left in that cluster of fuses. It also shows to be a 10 amp fuse on the chart. The engine starts on the two big batteries and sounds as if they are low. The generator starts on the 4 house batteries and the slides get power from them also.

RE: Battery corrosion

Next time when you need to top off your batteries, put 1.5 oz. of mineral oil in each cell. It cuts down the amount of bubbling from the batteries. I have found it helps the batteries also last a little longer. Happy travels. Arnold

RE: 120 volt electrical outlets, no power.Help!

I have two gfci breakers that will shut down power if tripped. Check to see if you have them and if they are tripped, reset them. That is a possibility. Please post the answer when you find it.Happy travels.

RE: Duracell 6 volt batteries

Well I bought four from Sam's and have them installed. My last interstate lasted seven years but I put mineral oil in them and felt I had a longer life from them because of that. Am debating about adding oil to these. Thanks to all for your input. Happy travels. Arnold

Duracell 6 volt batteries

Looking to buy 4-6 volt batteries from Sam's Club. Has anyone purchased them and how dependable are they? Any other possibilities? Thanks for your input. Happy travels, Arnold

Heart Interface charger remote.

I have a 1999 Heart Interface Remote for free if someone needs it. Had to replace my inverter and this remote would not work with the new Xantrex inverter I purchased. Just asking freight fee. I know it is old technology but someone out there might could use it. Let me know it you have a need and this might work for you. Happy travels. Arnold

RE: CAT 3126B

I guess "crank" did mean "start" Glad you got it running. Have had to use the pump myself a couple of times. Safe travels.

RE: CAT 3126B

Sorry. I interpreted crank to start. My bad.

RE: CAT 3126B

There should be a pump on top of the engine nearer to the front of the RV Raise the bed and find it. Pump and get air out of the line. You may have someone pump while you crank the engine over. Soon it should get air out of the line and crank. Do not crank for longer than 30 seconds at time and give it rest. Best to you. Arnold

RE: Batteries not charging {Resolved}

I have verified the inverter has no output and will tomorrow take it apart and determine that the pins that hold the boards together are in place. Saw that on youtube. Checked PPL on new Xantrex units and they are on sale until the 21st. One has a single output 100 watt and the other has a dual output 100 watt. Not sure which would be the one to get. Thoughts? Also the remote they show looks exaxtly like the one I have but "Horsedoc" says I need a new remote and new wire to it. I see running the wire as a definite problem. Open to suggestions. Thanks for all your help.. Will keep you posted as to the results.w

RE: Batteries not charging {Resolved}

When the inverter is turned on, the light on the panel blinks. One you tube video I checked indicated it was in "Service watts" mode. I reset as per instructions and light still blinks. Sorry, I don't know what Pass through outlets you are referring to.

Batteries not charging {Resolved}

I have a 1999 National Tradewinds with a Heart Freedom 20D inverter which doesn't charge the house batteries. It has power to it but does not seem to be powered up. I'm wondering if there is a fuse inside on the input side that might be blown. Ideas? Thanks Arnold Thanks for all the help on my problem and found my inverter was kaput. Since parts are no longer available for one that old, I bought a new Xantrex and controller. Will have it installed by local tech. As you all know, a very expensive fix, but necessary.

RE: Mobile oil changes

Speedco on I20 near Lancaster. Drive up and wait for oil change and lube.. They run them through pretty fast. A little pricey but they do a good job. 972-225-0544
