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.

RE: Battery Disconnect... What does it disconnect??

Also - your battery disconnect may not be functioning correctly. As I recall mine is based on latching relay which has a couple of fuses. Probably worth a few minute to check whether your battery disconnect is working.

RE: Boondocking? Tell me where

My limited knowledge says that there isn't much near Portland or the Coast. Last time I camped on BLM land was near Steens Mountain which was nice but took all day to get there. I will follow this post to see what else is available.

RE: Snow Chains VS Cables for Trailer

I would drop in to a Les Schwab dealer and get their opinion. Also if you buy chains from LS and don't use them they will refund your money.

RE: I Am severely dissapointed.

If it were me I would start by contacting the Manager of the facility were you purchased the RV. I would explain that they asked you to stay in the RV overnight on their property to evaluate whether everything was working - when you pointing out the water leak their salesmen essentially lied. Now your stuck waiting for 6 weeks. The manager may move you up on the repair list. My experience working with RV repair shops has been that getting mad doesn't help the situation. Talking with the boss often does.

RE: house batteries and generator

Depends on how your rig is wired. Easy to test - remove the battery and try and start the Generator. If you park your rig near a electric outlet you should just plug it in - most modern converters will maintain your battery without harming it - add in an inexpensive Trik L Charger and your converter will keep your chassis battery charged as well.

No expert but FW isn't under pressure and something like Eternabond might suffice. Won't cost much to test.

RE: How cold is too cold?

Takes very cold weather and significant time b4 you have water freezing issues. If your really concerned then you can empty the hot water tank and open the low point drain valves - that should protect you in most situations. Adding an electric heater will provide additional insurance. When weather gets nasty you can consider emptying FW tank and winterizing the rig.

RE: Cleaning out black tank for winter

Unless the crud is significant I would just ignore it - you really don't need a perfectly clean black water tank. If your determined to have a really clean black water tank then consider buying a bottle of septic tank cleaner (available at most hardware stores) - fill the black water tank to the top and give it 2-3 weeks to work. When you drain hold your breath as the fluid will be very nasty.

RE: Blue water in black tank - does it freeze?

If I couldn't dump I would just add some antifreeze - just in case.
