RE: Operating on a 20amp circuit

We do that all the time when visiting friends. We use heavy duty extension cord and if the house were connecting to has antiquated wiring we usually keep the fridge running on propane. We use an electric heater set on low.

RE: Onan Gen--hard starting and surging

For what it's worth - soaking the carb with a bit of Seafoam for an hour isn't sufficient. You need to soak 8+ hours and then repeat as necessary. Your trying to remove 20 years of crud. If it were me I would load the carb with Seafoam and let it set at least a day.

RE: Hot water pressure drops

Some rigs have mixing valves - maybe yours is stuck?

RE: Nice Looking Classic

Sweet! Everytime I see a nice old rig I regret having sold some of my prior stuff.

RE: $600K Of Marijuana Seized in MH Near Joliet, IL

When Oregon legalized marijuana the price dropped significantly - there were farms/distributors everywhere. Feds are upset because Oregon suddenly became a major distributor of marijuana to other parts of the country where weed was still illegal. I suspect the Feds will eventually drop there objections to Marijuana - it has become pretty clear to the states the have legalized it that it hasn't ruined society and none of the "sky is falling" predictions have come true. For the most part the police endorse the legalization as it allows them to spend time on serious crime. Anyone who has followed the "war on drugs" knows its an expensive failure.

RE: Tucson to Depoe Bay, Oregon

BTW I've never had a significant problem with LA transient midday. I suppose "significant problem" is relative. LA was a lousy commute 30 years ago and it has gotten significantly worse. When I travel through LA I avoid the std/direct approach and take a longer but quicker route which avoids most of the congestion.

RE: Onan Gen--hard starting and surging

Most would agree that it's fuel related - likely gummed up carb and/or fuel filter or fuel pump. I would start with the gummed up carb since most rigs that sit have that in common. I would try the seafoam approach first - ain't fast but it's inexpensive and easy to apply. Small gas container with lots of seafoam can be connected to your fuel filter with small fuel hose - run the generator - let is sit - repeat.

RE: Need help with 85 pace arrow house batteries

One of your cables will come from your converter. (that goes to positive terminal on your battery - maybe through a fuse) One of your cables will connect to your chassis and act as ground. (that goes to the battery negative terminal). The two batteries will connect together - positive to positive and negative to negative - so you should have two shorter cables that serve that purpose. That should take care of 4 of the cables. You may have other smaller cables that power things like the electric steps or carbon monoxide alarm - every rig is different. A multimeter can perform continuity test which will help identify.

RE: Parts for Kwikee Steps

I purchase my parts on Amazon or Ebay - but if your new and aren't sure of the parts you might consider visiting camping World or other RV parts dealer and discuss the issue ... might cost you a little more but you will get the assurance of find the right part.

RE: Hulu price increases TWICE this year!

I carry a TV which I connect to phone/laptop/tablet which have a library of videos which I can watch. Cost almost zip. May not work for you but it's an alternative.

RE: Space Heater

While watts may create the same amt of heat the big difference between heaters is distribution, sound, and quality of the thermostat. The quietest heater is likely the oil filled radiator type - love them but they often require a fan to distribute the heat and they are kinda bulky. Most of the inexpensive heaters you find at Walmart etc have fans that are either loud and/or so pathetic that the heat builds up near the heater which triggers the thermostat to shut off while the rig is still freezing cold. I have used a boatload of heaters over the years. I currently use a Vornado which has sufficient air power to distribute heat quickly to the rest of the rig. It's not as quiet as advertised but it's OK. My runner up is to buy two cheapo Walmart specials and set them to "LOW" and place one in the front/back. If you these inexpensive heaters on low the heat will likely not build up enough near the heater to trigger the thermostat to shut off prematurely.

RE: beaded cab driver seat??

These days I use whatever foam/gel cushion that is currently on sale - don't look as nice as the beads but your arse will thank you.

RE: Where is the valve to drain freshwater tank

Your rigs new enough that you should be able to pull into any dealer who sells coachman and find someone who will know.

RE: A Question Are you limited to life on pavement

Different strokes for different folks. 40 years ago when I lived down in SoCal it was hard to find privacy, wildlife, camping etc - even playing a round of golf required you to make reservations weeks in advance. Everyone adapts or moves. I chose to move.

RE: Signing a power of attorney for bank when selling your RV

The bank/lender is unlikely to provide the funds without having title and a POA serves the same purpose. If the lender is credible/established and you independently confirmed the transaction with them I would go through with the deal. If it were me I would request them to wire the funds to my bank (won't happen until after they get POA).

RE: Toilet Leaking

I may just buy a new one since I don't know what is wrong and can't look at it before going out there. Seems I can get the same model online for around $150 shipped. If I pull it off replacing it should be easy. Any tips for replacing it? Do I need to purchase any other parts? It says it comes with needed harware/seals to connect to existing water lines and floor flange. If it says it comes with necessary hardware you should be good to go. Lots of Youtube videos on how to change rv toilets.

RE: 1999 Fleetwood discovery not cranking.

Do the simple stuff first - make sure the battery is good (any auto parts place will test for free) and clean all the contacts and grounds.

RE: Toilet Leaking

Every toilet issue I have had required me to remove the toilet - some were easy and some are PIA. Don't know what kind of toilet or age of your rig - but the new toilets are nicer/taller than old ones and they are inexpensive enough to consider buying new toilet rather than fixing old ones. Just a thought.

RE: Hearing problem need wireless mic and ear piece

When I added Air Tabs the noise level in the cab dropped dramatically making speech at normal volume possible. Interesting. The airtabs I have scene are located on the rear of the rig and owner comments are generally focused on handling and mileage. Any thoughts on why sound levels in cab are lower?
