RE: Oregon to spend $50 million on new campsites, park imprvmnts

Oregon needs more State Parks - the ones we have are always filled. And those from out of state who complain their is a minor surcharge - vote with your feet.

RE: Winterizing black and gray tanks

Under ideal circumstances I would dump - but that's not life in my world. I put a jug of pink in both tanks and have had no issues for 20+ yrs. My black water tanks is mostly pee which is tough to freeze even without the pink stuff.

RE: Oregon to charge 25% more for out of state RV campers

I am from Oregon and have always had to pay an out of state fee when I camp in adjacent Washington. Our campgrounds are maxed out - it's hard to get a spot these days. I would have preferred them giving Oregon residence a discount but that would ask Politicians to cut revenue - something that will never happen. In short - I don't mind they charge a reasonable fee to out of state campers.

RE: Chasing down gas leak?

Consider taking your rig into Commercial Propane dealer. The one time I had a leak that I couldn't locate I went to Suburban Propane (commercial outfit) had them fill the tank and ask them to locate the leak - they had the tools to find/fix the leak very quickly. No charge to fix the leak.

RE: Sharp Microwave Oven Door

The cost of new unit maybe less than repair - make a phone call to repair shop to determine.

RE: Dometic fridge not cooling on LP. Just LP.

Fridge sounds like it works fine - you just need to develop patience. Let it cool overnight and then check. Quit opening the door and checking - buy a remote thermometer if you feel you have to monitor. Common problem for new RVers.

RE: Check light on fridge not working

When on "auto" the fridge should resort to AC if it's available. If no AC then it will revert to gas and the Check Light will come on if the gas fails to ignite. If you select "gas" and your haven't turned on the propane and you don't get a "check light" then something maybe wrong - light bulb or maybe bad board. If it were me I would turn on the gas - select gas and then see what happens. Make sure the gas lines are purged - (turn on the gas stove). If that works then I would plug in the RV to AC and select auto - and see what happens.

RE: fuse "Stripped chassis and modified vehicle."

I would think any fuse that energizes when you turn the key on would work fine. I piggyback on fuse that runs the radio.

RE: Nomadland

I just watched this movie and thought it did a great portrayal of the nomads I have met. It was somber movie - but that was the point. Older people who have lost everything is a somber subject - but those same people who have found a way to survive/recover/thrive and that's worth celebrating. One of the underlying themes that everyone should recognize is the culture of the RV community. Never had a problem in any campground that wasn't fixed by a fellow camper.

RE: recommendations for class C for overnights at ski resort

Agree with the others - 4x4 tough to find and probably not necessary. My Class C doesn't pretty good in snow - but I carry chains just in case.

RE: Heat duct oder

If it smells like urine or poop then it's the toilet (leak, bad vent, etc). If it smells like rodent or mice nest then that's your issue.

RE: Touch Up Paint

I would start with auto body repair shop.

RE: should Onan gen make noise when applying load and shut down?

Onan attempts to maintain the same RPM - so yeah it runs a bit louder when it's under load. NBD. You and I should get together and have Alzheimer drink.

RE: Sloping driveway parking

Not sure the reason your looking for level. But in general if your rig is level enough to be comfortable for a person it's level enough for your fridge. The number of inches between the two axles is significant and there are plenty of posts which have the "numbers/equations". In my yard I keep my Class C with the nose high so that water drains away from the cab (problem in many Class C's).

RE: Black tank

Climb on the roof. You will have vent for black water tank and gray water tank. You can remove the caps and run a hose down the tube to clear any clogs.

RE: Need awning input...

My 02. Owners already don't trust the awning that came with the rig. Making the cover out of aluminum or whatever doesn't mean squat if it's attached to the rig because Oregon Coast winds will just rip it off the roof and maybe the roof with it. If it were me I would just open the door when the dog wanted out. If not I would build a small shelter that protect the door from the winds and leave the door open. But that will take a lot of work and depending on where the rig is parked might not be acceptable.

RE: Fresh water pump

I turn it on and leave it on - but it's safer to turn it off when you leave the rig.

RE: Extended warranty - best options?

There are always exceptions - but most who have this type of insurance would recommend you avoid. And the provider doesn't seem to be a significant factor. Google is your best friend.

RE: Battery Monitor

As pianotuna has said - the OEM battery monitor is worthless. If it were me I would wait/learn B4 I would invest in expensive upgrade.

RE: Delmanation repair help needed

Might consider visiting a boat dealer - boats are similar to RV's without wheels and boats have more delam issue than RV's. Probably the best place to get legit delam advice.
