RE: Do I need a surge protector?

My 2013 Itasca Ellipse has the factory protector but I still use a surge protector. The price is small compared to the damage that can occur.

RE: blue ox tow bar loose

Order the kit from blue ox consisting of the spacers and new locking nuts. May want to order the rubber boot covers also.

RE: 3 battery banks. Is it necesary?

My Alfa had the 6 batteries in the front and the control electrical components under the steps. There is a main fuse for the batteries in the front drivers side. The setup worked for me. If you have to replace batteries get the sealed no maintenance ones and just change the settings for charge.

RV show

Went to the West Palm Beach RV show today. I was totally shocked at the poor quality of the units there. There were many people including young kids going in and out but the problems were missing panels, loose or missing hardware, doors that did not close. The most expensive motor home was the Dutch star. I toured the Newmar factory and this unit should not have passed the final inspection.

RE: Attention to detail is the exception and not the rule!

We go back to the dealer that we bought our RV from because they take us sooner than 3 months that other dealers quote. Knowing the people and staying in constant contact ( being a pain) is important. Do not accept poor service!

RE: slide out seals

Depends on your RV. Mine is 43 ft. and I ordered the seals from Winnebago. Side seals are easy but you have to remove the top cover so I had someone do that. A few hundred $'s for the seals.

RE: Natchez Trace Parkway

We did the Trace with our 43 ft. motorhome towing a car. Many places to get off and camp. Follow the battlefields and history of the area. We ended up in Pigeon Forge, Tenn. before heading west to Cal.

Cow Pens National Park is interesting, Rangers there are very helpful.

RE: Quilting in Yuma?

My wife said to find a quilt store and they can fill all of your needs. I've spend many hours waiting for her in quilt stores and customers give the greatest advice. Just don't say " what are you going to do with this material, you have too much now".

RE: rv insurance

We are in south Florida so many companies do not cover us for house, cars and RV. We check all insurance companies and have different policies for home cars and RV. Go online and get quotes.

RE: Freightliner Airbag replaced. Now not level

On my Alfa 36 foot RV they moved one rear valve to the front. 2 on front and 1 on rear. Had my Itasca Ellipse at Freightliner in S.C. this year for front end alignment and the right front is still higher than the left. It causes no steering or driving problems.

RE: Dead batteries 2013 elipse

Your batteries are sealed so no need to check water. Use your power monitor to check the charge. I have changed the house batteries in my 2013 Ellipse because of not fully charging, there are 6 of them and they are heavy to lift.

RE: Ceiling Flush Mount Puck Lights-Halogen to LED Bulbs

Almost 5 years and my 10 w and 20 w leds are still working fine. They are the white light not the yellow. Only problem when I use the antenna for the tv, the lights in the bedroom cause signal loss!

RE: Failed Again. Dometic Brisk Air II 15K Air Conditioner

We got to know them when the 1st replacement only lasted 15 min. The next lasted 2 days. The next unit was the wrong one. The next was damaged in shipment. The next blew its guts out and the last one has now lasted 3 years. Most problems were leaks which the mobile rep said he could fix but they would only replace the unit.

RE: Auto Gen feature disappeared? SOLVED!

You left a wire off of the batteries -

RE: a/c works on shore power but not generator power

You are running off of your inverter from the batteries - that's why your microwave shuts off.
