RE: Schwintec Slide

Yes it turned to be a loose wire on the motor itself. I got lucky and was able to solder the wire back on. The motor has wires that tell the controller that both motors are running. If it doesn't detect both running it shuts them off. As long as the wires supply power and ground are good the override will allow the slide to run

Schwintec Slide

One side of my slide will not move unless I go to the override mode on my controller. At this point I assume either a wire is loose from the motor or its the wiring harness. My question is, is it best to access the motor and harness from the inside or outside of the RV? Thanks

RE: Water Pump Being Weird. Is it dead?

Another thing to check: If there is a short hose for sucking anti-freeze into the lines, check for a loose cap on the end. (The cap on mine was loose once, letting the pump suck air into the lines with what sounds just like your problem.) X2

RE: GM trucks outsell Ford first quarter !

????? You have 1000's of hard working working people through no fault of there own now out of work. As an older person through my lifetime I have accumulated a decent nest egg to survive on but when i was young with a family we basically lived from pay check to pay check. I'm sure there gonna run out and buy frivolous things like food, medicine, and gas. Just curious, how will you spend the check(s) you are getting? Things like food, medicine, and gas. :B

RE: GM trucks outsell Ford first quarter !

The stimulus package will be a double edge sword, giving away money to even those that don't need it or deserve it won't teach responsibility. Excellent point. It will help some people. It will give others more money to hoard things they don't need. What ever happens, I think the world as we know it has changed forever. ?????

RE: Water pump warning... a little long but may be worth it

Never understood 'quick connections' on an RV water pump. Just have many times do you need to remove/replace one that it needs quick disconnects ??????? :B

RE: camping in ohio

Lantley Since where you live has no shelter in place order you are not violating any orders. However the OP is in an area that has a shelter in place order. In short the OP should obey the order. In short they want to limit an interactions. The OP will require, food, fuel, water etc. for the trip, he may have a flat, or a breakdown along the way. All of these things require interactions that can potentially spread the virus. Staying home eliminates all the potential interaction risk of camping. ??? Ohio has been under a order for a while now. these are the only reasons were to be out. The parks are currently open for exercise only. Were also threatening to close the parks do to the lack of social distancing. DeWine said the order allows exceptions, such as going to the grocery store, getting restaurant carryout, going to a park (but not use of playground equipment), taking care of neighbors or family members and attending weddings and funerals "

Yes that is what I used also. I got tired of my poor water pressure and dropped the underbelly and found the hose between the tank and pump kinked in 2 places.

RE: Dometic AC unit

May well be normal. AC fan runs on high until it reaches set temp. Unit shuts off and comes back on with fan speed on low. Cycle can continue several times especially when temps are high

RE: Can You Pass Through States with Stay at Home Orders?

From the article, "Those in jail for probation violations and low-level crimes — fourth-degree, disorderly persons or petty disorderly persons offenses — will be released Thursday." No felons. While not state wide many communities in Ohio are doing the same thing.

Ohio State Parks

COLUMBUS, Ohio – In response to the developing public health situation with COVID-19 and the Ohio Department of Health’s Stay at Home Order (pdf), the Ohio Department of Natural Resources will be closing campgrounds, cabins, golf courses, restrooms, shower houses, playgrounds, and state park marinas at all ODNR properties effective March 24, 2020, to protect the health of both visitors and staff. Public outdoor spaces at Ohio state parks, wildlife areas, forests and nature preserves remain open, including trails, dog parks, and non-marina docks, but visitors should use common sense and follow? this guidance ?from the National Recreation and Park Association for staying safe while they are out:

RE: Propane Auto Changeover

Sorry. I don’t use an auto change over. I want to know unmistakably that one of my tanks is empty. I switch over manually and have the empty refilled pronto. X2 I have an auto change over but leave 1 tank valved off until the other is empty. That works fine unless you enjoy cold weather camping and wake up freezing at 2 am because your tank ran empty. But that allows me to wake up at 2 am and open the valve to a full tank

RE: Would you plug in here.

Looks like a typical fairgrounds to me. Been doing that at county fairs for 40 years. NP. Usually the biggest issue is hose weight on the water spigot.

RE: Cleaning your AC Filter

All of the replies have to do with cleaning, cleaning, cleaning. I get it. My question was more about air flow, which in my trailer is significantly stronger with the filter out. "All of the replies have to do with cleaning"???. They all have to do with keeping max air flow. Letting dirt clog you AC unit by not having a filter is gonna restrict your air flow. Sounds like you had your mind made up before you asked the question though, have at it.

RE: Cleaning your AC Filter

Cooling coils are wet. Dust in the air will quickly collect on the coils greatly reducing there efficiency. The fins will clog reducing the airflow more then the filters do.

RE: Ohio's New Online Reservation System!

Not a fan of the new site also. Somehow my account information got screwed up and I had 2 accounts with one having some of my info and the other having the rest. Couldn't log into either account and it had no record of my email. Took 3 weeks to straighten out. Worse part for me is it doesn't show past reservations which let me know which campsites I liked

RE: Another Tesla problem

I'm in my 60's and have never been in a car accident. That said, and much to my embarrassment, once I was on cruise control on the interstate approaching my exit ramp and went to tap the brakes to slow down when the truck started to accelerate. Shocked I pressed harder and the truck continued to speed up. White knuckled I made the curve and went to let off what I thought was the break pedal and the truck slowed down. To this day I don't know how I thought I was on the break when I was on the gas. This was 20 years ago when I was a little sharper also. :h :S
