RE: Quarantine in RV?

I would not crank it for a full minute. That may eventually lead to starter failure. Most gens say to crank for 10-15 seconds at a time with a minute or so in between. Check for spark and then use starting fluid to get it going. If it starts then stops, then you have a fuel delivery problem.

RE: Solved: Vibration while accelerating issue

Had the identical problem on my V10 in the motorhome. Checked U-joints, center bearing, etc. Turned out to be a bad coil pack on #8 cylinder. Swore it was a drive train problem. Wish I had seen your earlier post, I could have helped. Good job!

RE: Polyester-mites

I heard that dryer sheets keep them away. Since using them, have not seen any mite residue.

RE: Unusual tire wear

Goodyear Tire Pressure Chart I find this chart to be good for any brand tire. There should be a chart somewhere in the motorhome with the recommended tire pressures. 85 psi is a good starting point. The most accurate way is to weigh the axles or all corners.

RE: Unusual tire wear

Generally speaking, over-inflation causes the center of the tire to wear and under-inflation the outside edges. The way to get the proper inflation is to weigh the axles, preferably the individual corners. This should get you in the ballpark of the proper tire pressures. If both the inside and outside edges of the tire are worn, under-inflation is the problem. If just one edge is wearing, it is most likely an alignment problem.

RE: 2004 Bounder New To Us Has Issues We Need Help With

As far as the water leak is concerned, since your tank is empty. the only thing that could be leaking is the P-trap or possibly a water filter if you have one. Good luck.

RE: Don't come to NH either!

Maine is open, for now at least. Best to bypass Cumberland county for that is where most of the active cases are happening. Come on up for some yummy Maine lobstah....... Lobster for those that don't understand the downeast accent..... Lakeside You are joking right? Please correct me if I'm wrong, but I don't recall hearing or reading about turning off your sense of humor during this pandemic.

RE: Best RV trip planner

X2 on Delorme Street Atlas. Best trip planner out there. However, in 2016 Garmin bought Delorme and promptly discontinued it. I use the last version 2015. I also use CoPilot on my tablet for up-to-date maps, and also for trip planning. But Delorme is my primary trip planner.

RE: Your Favorite Browser?

X2 on BRAVE! I use it on all my devices. With their ad blocker, some of the sites I visit look new without all the ads. Also, I avoid Google as much as possible. For a search engine, I use DuckDuckGo.

RE: DUAL BATTERY CONNECTION

They are wired correctly. RV systems, lights, furnace, water heater, fridge etc. run on 12 volts. Your two 6 volt batteries are wired in series, meaning the voltage is added together. 6 Volts + 6 volts = 12 volts.

RE: Mh Interior 12 volt LEDs

I also got led replacements for the halogen puck lights (G4's) under the cabinets for around $10 for a pack of 10. So far I like all of the leds. They are poleriized positive and negitive. Don't assume that the ones that don't light are bad. turn them around. I thought about that as I was plugging them in, but all six I replaced worked the first time. Just lucky???

RE: Mh Interior 12 volt LEDs

I just replaced all my 1156 type bulbs (14) with 'cheap' leds from Amazon for @ $20 for a pack of 20. I got both white and warm white bulbs. The bright white I will use in my compartments and the warm white in the interior. Though I haven't used them much yet (the MH is in storage) I have not found a bad one. If one goes bad, I have plenty of spares. I also got led replacements for the halogen puck lights (G4's) under the cabinets for around $10 for a pack of 10. So far I like all of the leds.

RE: Water Fill up - Flying J?

Most Flying Js have potable water in the RV lanes, which also includes a dump station ($10...$7.50 with GS card). We've stayed at FJ's all around the country and have never had a problem. Safe Travels! As an added note, get the Pilot/Flying J app and it will tell you what amenities are available at the FJ's as well as the fuel prices.

RE: WEN inverter generators on woot.com today only

I remember when stuff made in Japan was considered 'junk'. We, the U.S. helped them recover from WWII and gave them the technology and help to produce quality products we see coming from them today. China, on the other hand, stole or was given the technology by companies to produce cheaper (less expensive) products, However, I must say the quality of China made products has been improving, much like Japan in the past.

RE: Compartment Door Slam Latches

There is no brand name anywhere on the lock....only'Made in China' HERE is a link to the lock on Amazon. Here you go, Fastec AKA Wesco......... $13.95 which means they cost about $1.50 or less to manufacture. Wow! Thanks for that! Guess I didn't go far enough in my search.

RE: Compartment Door Slam Latches

Regular shots of silicon spray on the handle pivots and latches helps the mechanisms stay lubricated and last longer. Slamming the doors, . . . . . NOT! Chum lee There's a reason they are called 'slam latches', and are made to be closed without using the handle. As I have said before, when you close the door on mine, the striker pushes the bolt UP AWAY from the cam. The cam is there only to move the bolt up with the handle. Do what works for you. Thank you and yes, I'm very familiar with how the handles/strikers/latches work. Slam latches? I guess we went to different schools. Who is this "they" you refer to? (rhetorical question) Chum lee Rhetorical answer; the 'they' refers to the slam latches themselves. Read carefully.

RE: Compartment Door Slam Latches

Another who haven't had issues, but since it sounds like replacing them is a pretty big hassle.. can you buy the replacement and then just salvage the parts? I'm not willing to pay $40+ to replace a 50 cent part. For the rest of my doors, it would cost me over $400.
