RE: What constitutes a "new" tire?

When I purchased my Toyo's I told the dealer that they should not be older than 3 months. Dealer told me I would have to wait a week or so - NBD.

RE: Furnace runs but blows cold

Low battery is a common reason for furnaces not firing up - when a battery is low it won't run the furnace fan at high enough speed to open the sail switch. If battery is Ok then check the sail switch.

RE: Dump Station Etiquette???

If there is someone in line behind you dump and move on. If you want to super maintain your black water tank - fine - but do it on your own time.

RE: Drained fuel tank, now fuel sender is inop?

If you have to drop the tank you might consider replacing the fuel pump which is 30 yrs old.

RE: Clicking sound from where home battery is.

Self-resetting CB? :):) not sure but my circut breaker box is under my bed in the back. there is a part that is located next to the battery that may have been making the noise but im not sure. Self resetting circuit breaker is located near the battery and looks nothing like a regular circuit breaker. Google search should give you a good picture.

RE: Tires exercised

It also helps keep the brakes working properly.

RE: Spare on Class C

Older RV's tended to come with spares - some of the newer ones don't. The dealer is correct that carrying a spare doesn't guarantee that your capable of changing the tire -- but it does guarantee that you have tire/rim when the mobile tire repair outfit shows up to do change the tire.

RE: Drip

Can't fix it until you locate where the leak is coming from.

RE: Annual maintenance

My rig from 92 and I do something similar to what you have been doing. At some point you need to change out all the rubber. Check your antifreeze every yr and replace as needed - when it doubt change it - not hard and lack of attention can lead to new pumps/radiator which are expensive. Don't forget to change transmission fluid - should last a long time but it's something we tend to ignore.

RE: Onan 4000 Intake Manifold replacement

If it were me I would drop by a small engine repair shop and get their .02.

RE: Order placed on Web Site

You get lousy service you cancel the order and buy from someone else. Cancelling online orders because of failure to ship on time is pretty std. - no big deal.

RE: Converter fan revving up and down

Furnace is a battery hog - that's why your converter turned on. No big deal.

RE: Carsick dog

Most of our dogs got car sick when we first took them RVing - they all got over it quickly. If your driving a car then you might try leaving the windows open so they can hang their heads out. Another possible alternative is multiple stops until they adjust.

RE: Oregon state campgrounds

On the bright side - old farts like me who aren't used to having to make reservations have a chance now. In the old days I never made a reservation - just made sure I didn't camp on weekends. Then things changed and I discovered that not only did I have to make reservations I had to do it months in advance - I never had a schedule which allowed that. In fact - I bought an RV because my schedule was always chaotic and when I had a few days off I just used the RV for spontaneous mini vacation. We were always an hr drive from plenty of great camping spots. Those days are gone.

RE: Heater keeps dying

Are you connected to shore power? Are you using your propane heater vs electric heater? The std propane heater for an RV requires fully charged battery and they are designed to shut off if the power gets low. Common for rigs to loose heaters when batteries get low.

RE: Oil change + replace battery, which comes first ?

I would do both - neither is very expensive and both are important. If your desperate for funds - battery first.

RE: Removing Dicor from screw holes...

Didn't have a heat gun but even my wife's hair dryer seem to loosen the caulk enough to get a screw driver bit to work.

RE: Happy Thanksgiving All

Couldn’t find any small turkeys but chicken will be fine. Hard to stuff a chicken but it’ll stuff me! Small turkeys are tough to find - we bought a large one and will just be creative with leftovers.

RE: Dehumidifier overkill?

Most large dehumidifiers require shore power/generator - probably cheaper to crack a vent and run an electric heater/fan.

RE: Twin beds in cabover bunk?

Our boys used sleeping bags - and we kept them apart by putting a couple of our old sleeping bags (still in there stuff bags) between them. Seemed to work. The cabover bed is large and two small kids should have no problem sleeping up there.
