RE: House Batteries are fully charged but acts like they are not

I would check where the negative cable attaches to the chassis ground. I have had that connection get dirty or corroded. You might try bypassing the battery cut off switch. It sounds to me like you have a bad connection some where. Good luck finding where it is!!!

RE: Problem with autobrake on p30 or p32 Chevy chassis

Here are all the answers for your AutoPark System Yes, oldusedbear is the authority on the auto park system. His name is Roger Haag (sp). He is very helpful, you have to email him as he can't hear on the phone. To answer your question, if you disconnect the auto park you will have no park or parking brake. You will have to chalk the wheels to keep the coach from rolling!

RE: Windshield Replacement Recommendations

I had one replaced a few years ago, my insurance company recommended a company. They came and replaced the windshield at my home. They did want some numbers off the old glass. I don't know what would happen if I couldn't have given them to them.

RE: Wax on my Motorhome fiberglass roof

After it dries for more than the normal amount of time, it can be TOUGH to get off. I'd get it off sooner than later. Wow, yes wax that is on too long is really hard to get polished! I don't know what would happen if you never buffed it???

RE: Emergency roadside assistance

We have Good Sam E R S. We were towed twice on the same trip. They did their best and we were very satisfied with the service!

RE: Brakes and Steering on a 1984 Itasca P30 and convertor

Wow, I am surprised to hear that! I have a 2001 workhorse chassis and have had 2 different Chevy dealerships do service on it just this summer. One in Iowa and the other in Montana. I spent about $1450 with them and they seemed happy to get my money. Good luck, I hope you get it fixed!

RE: Brakes and Steering on a 1984 Itasca P30 and convertor

Have you tried a Chevrolet dealer that services trucks? They are pricey but I have had them fix P 30 chassis for me.

RE: Brakes and Steering on a 1984 Itasca P30 and convertor

Plugging into a 220 volt system is bad but should not have anything to do with loose steering or bad brakes. I think you need to take it to a good shop for evaluation and service. The P 30 has power brakes that are powered by the power steering pump. It could be possible that the steering and brake problems are related.

RE: Glacier national park

Tap the RV Parks button at the top of this page and it will tell you all you need. If you want to pay the big bucks give the KOA a try. We stayed at the Rocky Mountain Hi park and it was nice without busting the budget. I agree on Rocky Mountain High, we just spent 10 days there and were very satisfied. It was the best park we encountered and we were out 16 days. We have stayed in several RV parks around Kalispell over the years and Rocky Mountain was one of the best if not the very best. Price was reasonable, I think our 10 day rate was $360 with G.S. discount.

Rocky Mountain High RV park in Kalispell Mt.

We just spent 10 days at Rocky Mountain High and were very satisfied. It is a very nice park with a choice of open or wooded camp sites. It had good cable TV with pretty good wifi, level full hook up sites. Our rate was $36 per night. I recommend this park if you are staying in the area. The wifi did get slow at high traffic times but it worked good most of the time.

RE: KOA, Cody, WY

I agree, I try to avoid KOA, we just returned from a 16 day, 2500 mile round trip. Stayed at 2 KOA camps and they were the highest priced we encountered with only fair camp sites. One would have been OK except I had to raise the front wheels off the ground to get level.

RE: RV toilet with a self contained holding tank

We had a 1976 17.5 foot Mobile Traveler mini home with a toilet like that. I don't know where to get a replacement but the marine idea sounds like a possibility.

RE: Brake problem

The large GM dealership that I trust from previous service tested the system including the master cylinder and said it was OK. I drove it 1400 miles home including Mountain driving with no problems. I think the MC is fine!

RE: Brake problem

Just a follow up. We drove the MH the 1400 miles home and had no more brake problems. So I am satisfied that it was the moisture in the old fluid that caused the problem.

RE: I got the shakes

The above comments are all good but I would take off those wheel covers and do a test drive, just to rule out that as a possibility!

RE: Brake problem

Sounds like you found yourself an excellent shop while on the road. Nothing is worst then going cross country and not knowing if your brakes will stop you. A thermal gun at Harbor Freight is very cheap and is a handy tool. When you pull over for fuel shoot your rotors and start to get a feel for them. You just may find out that one which ran hot still does. Clearance changes when things start warming up. Safe travels back. Thank you

RE: Brake problem

OK, I took the MH in to the large local dealer here. They tested the brake fluid for moisture and there was 4% water in it so they flushed the brake fluid, checked the calipers, tested the pressure, and test drove it. They said one rotor showed signs if being hot at some time but that the caliper was free and moved easily. They checked all calipers for being free to move as they should. They said the master cylinder was OK. I am very happy with their service, it was not cheap but very thorough and were very good at keeping me informed on their progress. Thanks for all of the comments!

RE: Good Sam credit card fuel limits

We just traveled over 1400 miles and almost every station we hit had a limit. Some were $95 and some were $100. We used to have them shut off at $50 or $75 but it seems most have raised the limit. This was from Iowa to Montana.

RE: Brake problem

I did not actually feel the wheels but I was under and looked for fluid leaks and did not smell anything hot. I had that happen to my previous MH but I wouldn't think a caliper should have hung up as I just had the wheel bearings packed and they had the calipers apart and checked the brake pads which still looked like new.

RE: Brake problem

I have driven in mountains for years, I know not to ride the brakes and to shift down. I was not in heavy mountains for the last 50 miles at least and was on a slow road with a speed limit of from 35 to 55 mph. The brakes worked fine when I got to the campground. I left the engine running while I went and signed in, that took 5 or 10 minutes and then I slowly drove to my camp site, that is when I noticed the pedal sinking to the floor. I think I will go to the Chevy garage in the morning and make an appointment to have the fluid changed and if they think the master cylinder is bad, I will have them change it. Although I agree the fluid should be changed I really don't think the brakes were that hot. I just had the MH in to the Chevy garage back home before the trip and had them pack the wheel bearings and check it over including the brake pads and all fluid levels to the tune of $830 so it is rather disappointing that we are having this problem. Oh well such is life, I am just happy it happened at 5 mph and not 60 mph. Thanks again for your ideas and opinions.
