RE: What is going on with the underbelly of this Jayco?

Metal sided? Keep in mind many metal sided RVs the leak may not show up visibly inside. Sometimes stays within the walls and rots the wood.. Did someone tear the hole to inspect for damage? My question is why he bought it and wants to sell it so quickly. If the roof was replaced could be that it was leaking. There are some videos on utube about RV inspections. Looking for soft wood. Check inside drawers and cupboards for soft wood or stains. Soft floors or ceiling near the walls. Loose trim molding on the outside of the RV and badly rusted screws. May not be a problem but inspect it closely.

RE: Indio to Temecula best route?

I've driven that route a few times, actually 79 meets I-10 at Beaumont. Good route. We like to stay at Pehchanga Vs Hemet. Temecula is a nicer town.

RE: Upgraded Oven

We have never had good luck baking in an RV gas oven. My MH came without an oven. It had a microwave conv oven. It was almost a deal breaker. Dealer explained easy job to add an oven later by removing drawer under the gas range. After using the convection oven I would never go back to an RV with a gas range oven. DW likes the convection oven.

RE: ALT-89 Jerome, AZ accident

I drove that mountain before towing my 5ver. It is steep and winding. However, I think the problem is not the road but the driver. There are a lot of drivers out there that shouldn't be driving RVs. Surprised some even have a drivers license. I have been in RV parks where everthing is flat, and they still run into things. I just hope that when I lose my skills, maybe because of age, I'll be able to realize my limitations. All that said, accidents do happen. Even the best and careful drivers run into problems. Sometimes mechanical reasons, Sometimes sucked into accidents due to mistakes of other drivers. JMHO

RE: A '101' A/C question

Lots of RVs in the 80, 90s & even after 2000 had only 30 amps and 1 A/C. Running 2 A/Cs with 30 amps is a problem.

Inverters do draw current even when not under heavy load. When I bought a ranch in WY several years ago I bought a generator so I could use power tools since there was no electric to the property. Many times I had problems getting the generator started. I bought a 2000 watt inverter. Best money I ever invested. I had enough power anyplace on the ranch to run power tools. Just pop my PU hood and connect the inverter. I use a small 150 watt true sine wave inverter in my MH for my computer etc. when off the grid. Having a solar panel helps to keep the batteries charged. If I camped off the grid for longer periods I would install large solar on my MH roof.

RE: Tiffin or Newmar

If one of the had a side radiator that would be my choice. I like those DPs where you open the rear hatch and the whole engine is in view. Easy to work on.

RE: Test drove a Cummins last night.

Dodge builds a good truck. Unless they have changed the only downside is towing mirrors. Hard to beat the Ford towing mirrors. Motors in & out and folds with a push of a button. All I ever saw on the Ram was car mirrors.

RE: Fridge use with no elec during emergency?

Do what hotbyte recommends. Use battery jumper cables. I always had the front of my vehicle facing my TT. I'd get up in the morning and start my vehicle and jumper to my TT battery. More expensive to run than a generator but it will charge your TT battery quickly. Since I only dry camped about 1 week a year or less in my previous TT I couldn't justify buying or hauling a generator around.

RE: Purchasing an RV 1st timer

Climbing up on the roof with any RV is a good idea twice a year. Check for cracks in the caulkng. Also be alert to any unusual moisture. I carry sticknbond tape and dicor caulking in my tool kit. If you are buying used walk away from any moisture damage. All RVs have problems. Find the floor plan you like. Keep looking for quality. If you camp in cold climates you need to think about heated tanks.

RE: RV Toilete paper

Used a few rolls of RV TP back in the 60s. Have used plain TP since. Have never noticed a problems. Use lots of water when you flush.

RE: Leaking kitchen faucet

I just bought our new pull out fauset from Lowes. A lot higher quality than original. It is a little cramped under the sink. I am going to replace bathroom fauset next. A lot easier replacing washers in home type fausets. My kitchen fauset is a one hole fauset but they furnish a plate in the box to cover the other holes. I opened the box before puchase to make sure it would fit.

RE: Tilex on EPDM roof

How about black streak remover? Most RV dealers carry it.

RE: Improper levleing with auto level

What brand? Suspect it may need to be calibrated. If you don't have instructions they probably can be downloaded. Assuming of coarse all else OK.

RE: Gas station help!

Gas buddy app, planning exit before entering, I try to pull in from the station side with my exit towards the street.

RE: slide lube

I use dry spray lube. Works for me and it doesn't attract dust and dirt. Quiets my slides down when moving.

RE: Scanning photos?

Maybe it is scanning and the photos are being placed in unamed folders. Try checking all folders. Documents, pictures etc.

RE: How long do you allow your Generator to run?

They are air cooled and shouldn't shut down. Make sure oil level is OK. Don't know which generator you have. Some of the Onan gas generators have fuel pump over heating problems. My fuel pump was changed out under warranty. The generator will also shut down if your gas tank gets low so you won't run out of fuel. Does it throw an error code?

RE: Route ideas for Wyoming Grand Tour?

All you mentioned is good stuff, but I highly recommend you try to work in the Big Horn Mountain area. On the northern end, there is an ancient indian site called The Medicine Wheel, very cool if you like that kind of thing. and highway 14A is a must see, but not when you're pulling a trailer. VERY hard grade, climbing the side of a very high mountain...like the Bear Tooth, but with steeper grades. On the southern end, highway 16, there are lots of Forest service campgrounds, nice ones. I agree. 16 is much better for RVs.
