RE: Towing a 2019 Rubicon Jeep

Any different than towing the 07 Wrangler ? book says, Transfer case in N, Transmittion in Park. All wheels up or down, no dollies. The brake master cylinder may be different so it depends on the braking system chosen, the old M&G system may not work.

RE: Monaco

Been looking at at signiture can i still get parts an get it worked on. I have a mountain air now 2011. Sig is a 2008 model Generally speaking, yes most parts are available. I think the Multiplex chassis system in the front run bay Ivylog mentions depends on when the '08 was manufactured. I THINK the early ones have the same boards as the '07. If it has about 17 boards it is the earlier system and one board is the later system.

RE: Parking at Walmart

Why not park overnight at a local campground? One thing that surprises us is how often we find ourselves in an area with no camping facilities nearby or availability. None of the campground apps are complete which leaves many camping facilities empty, no one knows about them for some reason. Try to find the downtown Lynchburg, TN camp in Allstays, Good Sam or RV Parkey. Five 50 Amp with water and one of those has sewer in downtown Lynchburg at Wiseman Park. That is just one example of many.

RE: "303" Survey

Both MHs were stored outside - his in Las Vegas and ours in St Louis. Mine was parked next to my house with one side facing due south. I have to believe the huge difference in the way our two MHs looked had to due with what was used on them. Comparing Las Vegas sun and heat damage to St Louis sun and heat damage? There is no comparison regardless of any product you use, Las Vegas will always have more damage.

RE: Tecma Toilet

As for my Tecma's woes, it was all working fine again, this morning. Go figure and now, I just know when it might fail again....grrrrr! Can't blame this phenomenon on anything except tropical heat, while it was sitting in a shop's lot over the weekend. I saved my intermittent controller just in case I have another failure, it may work in a pinch. I have two Techma's.

RE: Tecma Toilet

Yep, that's the touch pad, I have. However my toilet is the Tecma Easy Fit, not the Silence Plus. So you're saying that the control box is not the flush pad and is located under the toilet? Correct, the toilet is bolted down, be careful when you screw it in after the repair as the porcelain is easily broken. I was able to pull the toilet away from the wall and replace that module without disconnecting any hoses, it was an easy job. The link was the first I came across so the parts on yours may be different. Call

RE: Tecma Toilet

One of mine was intermittent, changed the control box which fixed it. Had to pull the toilet off the floor but didn't have to disconnect the hose. I have not heard of the switch panel going bad although possible. Do you have the two button panel with the tank level light? Techma parts My bad control was like the 38646 part.

RE: Need a lift for my 5th wheel hitch

I sometimes leave the hitch attached to the trailer , pull the pins and the trailer jacks will lift the hitch and trailer off of the truck . Never have to lift .Leave the hitch hang until you need it again , reverse to install ! Otherwise I use this for loading stuff: Hydraulic Table

RE: Cutitng Fiberglass

When you're done, take a cool shower, (a hot one will open pores and drive the fiberglass dust into your skin) I wish I had known that before! I use the pizza cutter also. Never heard it called that but I like it!

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

I just moved my coach to a new location and next to us is a 2007 Holiday Rambler Imperial 43DSQ that was parked in 2009 and basically left - not started or maintained. Covered from sun exposure but still outside.That said, this one is almost on all flats and hasn't moved, been started, or cared for. Of course we'd have it thoroughly inspected but sitting for that long breeds plenty of gremlins that may stay hidden for years beyond the inevitable fluids, seals, fuel, gaskets, all of it. We anticipate at least $20K above purchase to get her up and running again but don't honestly feel that it would be as easy as just subtracting that from any fair market value because of the neglect. Assuming Phoenix area under cover, the main visible damage would be sun exposure and heat to body and interior. Are you doing the work or the $150/hour shop? If you are not doing the work don't even consider it. The engine and drive train are going to go through lots of hours of labor and material.

RE: AA battery life

most of my AA AAA rechargeable cells are NiMh In addition to leaking Kirklands I've had lots of leaking Duracells lately. I have never had a leaky rechargeable battery but they don't seem to last as long on a charge as an alkaline battery. Sometimes that makes a difference.

RE: Waze

I use Waze, Google Maps and Garmin. Waze and Google Maps are good for cars and small vehicles but when I'm 65'-70'long in heavy traffic on multi lane roads they do not show the projection of the lanes ahead and what lane out of 6 or 8 you should be in, Garmin does. I haven't found a GPS app that I like for everything. Does anyone remember Mapopolis? It allowed you to put in lots of preferences which no one does now.

RE: AA battery life

If you are near a Costco go buy their jumbo pack of Kirkland batteries. I quit using them after lots of leaking batteries screwing up my stuff.

RE: Mini-Split Airconditioners

I was talking to an A/C tech about mini splits. He said most are made in China by the one company and branded with many brand names. They generally work well. He said the one thing that you should check in the owner manual is the chart that says "Room Temperature" and under that "Outdoor Temperature" to make sure the Outdoor temperature range says 122 degrees. Apparently some are sold that are good up to 108 degrees and the thermal cutoff will shut it down above that temperature.

RE: Paper air filter conversion

Just keep in mind the air filter is meant to remove large particulates and allow small particulates to pass through the evaporator. It is not meant to clean the air you breathe. A "paper filter" by its very nature will create a large restriction, reduce air flow and increase head pressure in the compressor. That is not a good thing.

RE: Troubleshooting Compressor Windings

I can count on one hand the number of failed compressors I’ve run in to in 30 years of servicing them. Chris, you are a great technician with great ethics. Many are not. I'm always amused by the number of posts indicating bad compressors. Folks seem to want to find a reason to buy a new unit. I will go to great lengths to keep an R134A unit alive and avoit the R410 units. The major compressor manufacturers say a large majority of compressors returned under warranty are good and the technician was wrong in their evaluation.

RE: Double Towing Behind Motorhome

You know the rules and you also know that it is the luck of the draw, is the officer busy or does he care when you go by. I've towed over 80' without problems but there again it depends on that particular officer making the decision to enforce or not. One thing certain; if you are stopped you will be disconnecting right then and there and will have the problem of getting the separate pieces down the road. I have only talked to one person stopped in Oregon and had to disconnect, not a fun day for him.

RE: Much of a difference between 13,500 or 15,000 BTU A/C?

My vote is for the 15K and while you're at it go with a heat pump. I've never had a camper that I wished had a smaller A/C unit. When your heater quits some cold winter day you will be very happy with the heat pump.

RE: 2008 Monaco Entry Step

when you replace the magnets, were they like for like. My old ones was white with a ¾ inch bore so Coach Step advised me to replace them with the same color and bore magnets. One color of proximity switch is closed when near the magnet, the other color is open when near the magnet. Kwikee Step Magnet
