RE: Slides out or autolevelers down first?

RTFM as in read the factory manual.I have seen slide and then level and level and then slide. We’re now on our third Class A MH and the dealer insisted slides go out first . We have always leveled first. Any thoughts?

RE: generator fuel line

Yes and it took me a year to find it. I extended the generator slide all the way out and traced the like to the MH fuel tank. I have a 2003 Duch star on a spartan chassis. I figured out the fuel line to the gen set must have a air leak. Or something I have to keep bleeding the gen set. Has anyone ever had with problems and got it fixed? It runs great from a 5 gallon can.

RE: Starter Batteries

IMHO they have not changes over the years so I would go find another unit and see how it is wired. Does anyone have any kind of schematic showing where the cables(wires) go in hooking up the starter batteries on a 1999 National Tradewinds. Had batteries replaced and now he isn't quite sure where all the wires go properly. I know they should have been tagged as they were removed but that didn't happen so now need help. Thanks

RE: Frozen levelers

What kind of jacks, electric, hydraulic or something else. Check switch, wiring, or relays. listen for clicks or other sound when trying to raise the jacks. Check for rust on the extend cylinders. If hydraulic check the reservoir and pump.If HWH call the factory as they may have a mobile techs name and number. Good Luck I'm looking at a 2006 Safari Simba that has been at a seasonal cg for 2 years.I haven't seen it yet but will on Saturday. The owner says she left the Jac k's down and they won't retract.it otherwise looks to be in good shape,on a workhorse chassis,just don't know if sitting has caused more damage. Thoughts would be appreciated.

RE: Auxiliary brake system

We used a tattle tale system that would create a red light every time the BB was activated and stayed on as long as it was activated.put it right in the middle of the dash in front of the steering wheel. Could not miss it. Tested each time we started. We've been using the same one for 21 years. Towed Jeeps, a Colorado and for the last 10 years a Silverado. It's been back to the factory twice ($200+-) with about a week turn-a -round. Ed We have (I think) Classic or similar, I have blocked between the driver seat and the unit but still it gets loose. I really cannot tell if the thing releases or not by looking at the device that sits on the dash in front of me. I have about given up on even using it. If not too much effort on your part, please tell me steps you go through to make sure the BB is installed and working correctly (ie releasing when it is supposed to) Thanks in advance

RE: Auxiliary brake system

We used a Brake Buddy for 15 years. Had to have the unit rebuilt one time. We used a tattle tale light to indicate when the brake buddy was activated. Never used anything else so no comparison gave be given!

RE: Backup camera failure

Diligence has its reward! Congratulations O.k., I contacted the camera manufacturer. They were very helpful. The lights are all fixed, as is the camera. I managed to splice all the wiring. And, I covered the wires in a clear plastic sleeve called Critter Cord that smells awful and is designed to prevent pets from chewing electrical cords. Other than that I’ve got my fingers crossed. But, for now all is back to normal. Keeps life from getting boring?

RE: 2003 Newmar Dutch star help #2

We had a problem that was caused by a kink in the fuel line that was caused when the generator tray was pulled out and pushed in. The link broke the line slightly and allowed air to enter the fuel line. Www rerouted the fuel line and the problem went away the air in the fuel line caused the generator to stop. Took us months to figure it out. Check the entire fuel line to the generator. GOOD LUCK

Does anyone have any recommendations on a reliable/trustworthy inspection/repair facility near Millersville, Maryland? I plan to do a number of upgrades/restorations on the inside, but I want to make sure things are good/safe on the drivetrain/brakes/mechanical etc. Any advice/recommendations are appreciated. Thank you.

RE: Tiers of Motohomes

For a 20 year old MH IMHO I would look at the interior and external condition, then does it have the items I want that are most important to your wife. Then I would ask to see service records. Check recalls by VIN . Then if I am still interested I strongly urge you to have the engine and transmission inspection by a trusted dealer even if cost me a couple 100 bucks! Where if fits in the manufactures line up is immaterial at this age!

RE: Slide out room props

Several years ago a church bus converted from a school bus has the slide at window height sliced along the side by a RV slide out that extended while it was driven. We always used slide out locks!

RE: Taos and Santa Fe with 37’ Taos motorhome

X 2 Yup in those wonderful places, you have to understand that the downtown was laid out many centuries ago. Do not expect parking downtown for a motorhome. But, there is some public transportation and certainly Uber. DON'T MISS THEM. BTW, we spend summers in Angel Fire, just east of Taos. 8,400'+ makes for a very nice summer climate.

RE: Taos and Santa Fe with 37’ Taos motorhome

Bet it didn’t park a 40 footer on the Taos or Sante Fe plaza, we did it in a 40 foot Motorhome. The problem is I don't have a toad right now, so I have to drive my 37' around the town, how ease it is to find parking on the street for 37' motorhome?

RE: Class A Towing trailer with car and Motorcycle

Great quote Not exactly the same thing but I have a 30ft enclosed and can haul my 65 442 race car with the Smart car in front of it. I also have a 20ft open Featherlite and can put the Smart on there in front sideways and the car fits behind it. At the race track there are all types of stacker trailers with cars, golf carts, 2nd cars, street cars, etc up top. If you can afford a Vette, a class A, and a Harley you can afford a good trailer.

RE: Starting search for 20 year old Lux coach. Have questions

We ordered our 2002 DSDP and I spoke to a Newmar rep and he told us to order the TPO roof and not fiberglass. We never have had a problem. My wife and I will be looking for a rig in 2023 or 2024. I have begun the search of luxury coaches in the 2000-2008 years. After that I think they are getting above what I want to spend. I am keeping my eye on Beaver, Foretravel, American Coach, Nemar, Monoco, etc. I have been searching forums and reading a lot. The question of roofs came up as I just got down from my current Lance maintaining the seams around the items sticking through the roof. I am wondering about the coach roofs and the chance of leaks. I understand the Eagle from American Coach had a fiberglass roof. Are there others that may have a fiberglass roof? Or maybe others that have a roof that I dont have to worry about leaking. I am used to truck campers and 5the wheels. So other than the old Winnebago Chief I owned for 1 season, I am new to the Class A. Thanks, Ben
