RE: U-Line under counter ice maker not working.

On my model 95 U-Line Ice Maker, it NEVER makes ice the 1st I turn it on, NEVER!!!! The solution is buried deep in the manual trouble shooting. It says to turn the thermostat UP slightly. Once you hear the tinkle of ice cube making, turn it back down to where it was. Kind of counter intuitive but works every time for me. U-Line FYI It is a replacement ice-maker compressor. The original U-Line was an R12 Gas model and is no longer available. The new compressor assembly is available from Air & Water, Inc., at $369. The unit is model A1-500SS. Phone 1.800.734-0405 or 714.421.4328. FAX 714.200.0665. Their address is 100 South Linwood Ave., Building B, Santa Ana, CA 92705. One has to shave off approximately 1/4" on one of the vertical frames.

RE: Safari Sahara 3044, 300hp Cat

Sounds like I have the Serengeti in that year, a M-4044 - 40 footer, angled kitchen wall, and seperate "Throng Room." I would suggest that you go to either Yahoo Safari Websites (Safari Friends or Safari Coaches). In the Files Section is probably the very BEST & downloaded Used Motorhome CheckList. Extremely Good Insurance. also be aware that most Coaches (Used) are way over priced due to sellers not understanding KBB/NADA correctly.

RE: Cheapest place to buy cash in Canada?

Provincial Liquior Stores, you get that hour's exchange rate, and they do it cheerfully (my experiences) without even buying anything.

RE: Dingy towing VW Beatle, stick

Toad'ing any of the manual transmission 99.5 thru 2004 VW MK-V platforms (Jetta, Beattles, etc.) is OK, mine is a 2002 Jetta TDI. Be aware that the TIME to install Roadmaster Tow Brackets takes a couple hours longer than Roadmaster's estimate.

RE: Satellite TV reception?

No problem with DirecTv (SD - 18" Round Antenna) on the northern end of Vancouver Island (Port McNeil, BC). And that included getting the Seattle Locals Spot Beam.

Recliner Shopping & Customer Service

Brad And Hall, in particular George & Stephine. My coach only had a sofa & one recliner swivel rocker when we bought it. Always wanted to get a second Flexsteel Recliner in color matching Ultraleather. Then I was struck with a rare auto-immune disease, CIDP. I have rehab'ed since where I can get into and out of the coach and safely drive it. But for me to get into and out of "Low" seat heights, i.e., recliners, they have to be stable, no swivel and no rocking. What an Odessy of Recliner shopping with companies acting like they don't need the business, especially in today's economy. In particular Flexsteel & their retailers -- Shame on Them! One morning I was reading one of my RV magazines and I saw Brad and Hall advertisement. I checked out their website which further peaked my interest. So I called their 1-800 phone number & got ahold of "George!!!" Lucky me, old school Customer Service oriented gentleman. I explained to George my medical situation and Flexsteel Ultraleather Recliner needs ($1,450+++). He asked if I had looked at the "Other Recliners" on their Website, in particular Amish built Lambright, I had not, which I very quickly DID!!! Geesh, $300 - $400 Cheaper which appealed to me. In talking to George, he assured me of the quality of the Amish Built Lambright and that it was one of their better selling chairs. He sold me. The next problem was Ultraleather texture & color matching to my existing 15 year old Flexsteel recliner. My better half & I wound up turning the flexsteel upside down and cut a small sample out and sent it to George at Brad and Hall. Within 5 business days we received a call from Stephine (George's Helper) who did the color match. Again, Customer Servive in the highest, Stephine explain each chair is made to order and would take about 4 weeks to make, and 1 week to ship out here to the west coast. Arrived yesterday exacting on time, very well packed/boxed for shipping, with No Damage. I am more than impressed with the quality and workmanship and design of the Lambright Recliner. As well as the Old School Customer Service of George & Stephine at Brad and Hall. You just don't see that anymore.

RE: Portland, Oregon

If you don't mind $20/night water/power hookups, easy on/off access from I-205 hwy 99 exit, Willemette River view, and only 12 miles south of the PDX downtown area (hwy 43 West Linn/Lake Oswego), try the Clackamas County Park, Clackamette Park, google it.

RE: Northern Vancouver Island

Try Alder Bay Resort & Marina just south of Port McNeil. Probably the Best Deal on the entire Island. Their Website -- http://www.alderbayresort.com/

RE: Jetta Dingy Questions

Well, we tow both a 2002 VW TDI Jetta 5 speed manual transmission and a 2004 Explorer Limited. The Exploder needs a brake system but I don't think the Jetta does due to weighing around 2,350 pounds. Since I had to get a braking system for the Exploder, I got a Roadmaster Even Brake System. My Safari does not have Air Brakes, just hydraulics, so "Air Based Systems" were out. For the Jetta, I did have to get an optional Jetta brake pedal clamp and a different length pedal rod for the Evan Brake box. Bottom line -- pain in the you know what to setup, so I have only used it twice on the Jetta.

RE: Satellite radio antenna

What type of roof is your coach. My Safari has a Filon/Fiberglass roof. My Sat Radio antenna just sits on top of the TV/Entertainment cabinet. Signal passes through just fine.
