RE: COSTCO no longer wants motorhomes in gas lines?

For a penney or 2 a gallon it is a PITA waiting in line that long to save maybe 1 or 2 dollars.

RE: No-Start Class A

Use a multimeter one lead on starter ground lead. Other lead on starter plus lead. Read the voltage when you turn ignition to start. If voltage drops probably bad contacts. Could be eithe ground lead or plus lead.

RE: Onan Fuel pump

When the Onan repairman replaced my fuel pump under warranty I asked him why Onan would still place the pump on the generator when they realized a heat problem was killing them. He said Onan sells complete generator units. The unit mounted in MHs is just an off the shelf unit. If my fuel pump goes out again I'm going to move the fuel pump to the MH frame where it will stay cooler.

RE: Surprise effects of wolves in Yellowstone

This is all fine and dandy until the wolves leave the park and start killing live stock. Hence the reason wolves were shot on site many years ago, along with grizzlies. I imagine it is very nice to live in an area that there will never be a threat from wolves. Unfortunately, wolves have already moved into Colorado for me. Imagine walking your precious pet and a pack of wolves show up. I'll bet you won't be so happy to have wolves around then. Wolves don't kill for the sole purpose of eating. Most kills are for pure sport. Same with dogs and domesticated cats. Don't get me wrong, they are beautiful animals, but there is a reason they were removed from the lower 48. Very good point that urban people don't understand

RE: Battery Charge Line

I use a heavy duty diode in a metal box. You need a diode to prevent the toad battery discharging back into the MH when MH ignition is off. Built a diode into a box for about $6

RE: NJ to Yellowstone

May want to fuel up in Buffalo. Not much between Buffalo and Worland on 16.

RE: Broke down days from home, what would you do?

In a lot of areas motels and hotels have longer term rates. That would be my first option. Also depends how far away it happened.

RE: Hwy 26 from Casper Wy to Jackson Hole Wy

If you are traveling toward Jackson now you should google fire info. Last time I checked 12,000 acres were involved near Jackson

RE: External laptop coolers

Yes the external fans do work. DW uses an external fan on her Acer laptop. Her external fan is called "Connectland accessory". It plugs into a USB port. Her Acer has always overheated when purchased new.x2 Probably not needed but sure knocks down the case temp Called a laptop but funny DW dancing around in a chair with her Acer laptop on her lap :B. I have a Lenovo and doesn't get nearly as warm. I'm sure you are right though, probably not really needed.

RE: Seatbelt extenders

I have been unable to find seatbelt extenders for my 2005 Fleetwood Southwind MH. It has a Ford F53 chassis. The tongue width is 1 1/4 inch. The widest I have found is 1 inch. Anyone know of a supplier? Yes, go to Ford. They gave one to me no charge.

RE: What to expect with a new gasser

You'll be just fine in a gasser V10. The rear axle ratio is higher. I believe about 5.2 in 24k pounds. In longer coaches is 6.3 ratio. I live in WY and don't have a problems in the hills around here.

RE: lost signal/short, coax tv cable from front to rear

I've been working in electronic for over 60 years. Althouth it isn't impossible for coax to be damaged. I doubt it. Probably bad measurement. Usually bad connectors. Probably a splitter or something else on the other end. Put a known value resister on one end and measure resistance on the other end and also to ground. Don't be tearing out walls for no reason.

RE: Zamp 200w portable panels

I also have the Zamp. Pricey but they work well. Noisey but that is the problem with a lot of solar chargers because of pulsing. Unless you have amateur radio equipment you'll never notice the RF noise.

RE: Reese Dual Cam for off-road

Our previous TT we had the Reece straight line with dual cam. It was solid in high winds. We went over South Pass in WY with onver 40 mph cross winds. Out TT was only 5000 pounds but I was really impressed. We never drove off road but did drive on icy slick roads in WY in the winter. Hooking up wasn't that difficult in uneven areas. After latching the ball I jacked the rear upward prior to connecting the bars.

RE: opinions please....on a old Lance

If I recall they were selling for about $14,000 new. Basically trouble free at the time.

RE: Question

Converters Vs inverters. Converters changes 120 volts to 12 volts. Almost all RVs have them to charge the batteries.. Inverters change 12 volts to 120 volts. If you have an inverter the input should be 12 volts and the output will be 120 volts. Brand name and model would be helpful so we would know exactly what you have and trying to accomplish.

RE: Free dumping at CW! But poorly designed dump station.

Management probably just found out they were treating customers good. at that CW. That has to stop. :B

RE: Lost control when towing?

I lost control while towing a horse trailer. I was all over the road. Fortunately I regained control but it was white knuckle experience. #1 Horses became untied and moved to the rear of the trailer. #2 My trailer electrical plug was not plugged in properly. What I learned from that experience. Never trust anyone else to check your vecicle. I should have checked the horses and everything else myself before driving. I now walk around my vehicle at every stop, checking out everything myself. I don't rely an anybody else to tell me all is OK. It only takes a few minutes to make a complete safety check of my vehicle and a trailer or toad if I am towing.

RE: RV Insurance

We never know how a insurance company handles claims until we have a problem. Its not like we have accidents all the time. Sometimes we have one company for years before we know how good or bad they are. After reading your post it did sound more like a maintence problem than an accident. Did you hit something that caused the problem?
