RE: The case of the disappearing gas leak

If it's getting to the evap system as described above, one way to help stop that is to only let them pump till it clicks off the first time. Don't let them keep filling more after that, it's a known culprit for getting into the evap.

RE: Worst RV Brand List

Thor should be on the top of that list. Would never by anything made by Thor.Kind of funny from someone that owns a Jayco owned by Thor. My Jayco was made before Thor bought them out. After Thor Bought them they went down hill to the point they brought back in some of the original owners to fix things. I would not buy another Jayco since Thor bought them. This is true. Even though Thor bought them in 2016, the real changes didn't happen till 2018, at least for motorhomes. No more solid countertops, no more electric swivel T.V, no more 6 way power drivers seat, more paper less wood. There's a lot more but you get the idea.

RE: Worst RV Brand List

This type of post usually ends up with people fighting, that being said, I do see some truth in it, particularly the one they say is really bad.

RE: No more full size cars from GM

They want to build what sells, and full size sedans are not it. No surprise... I just read that the domestic automakers consider the SUV body style to permanently replace the sedan. People like the upright seating and better visibility in the SUV, plus more cargo capacity.

RE: RV'ing with a cat

We let ours have free run once their in the rig. On my old rig, I screwed one of those shorty scratching post to the floor in the back and they loved it. If you don't have a scratching post, they do a number on your upholstery. Mine likes to lay on my lap while I'm driving, but if she thinks I'm lost she'll lay on the dash right in front of me to give me directions :)

RE: Jayco TV antenna

Sorry guys, I screwed up my post and somehow got it inserted wrong. Doug is the 40 year tech, not me.

RE: Jayco TV antenna

I don't understand why you need documentation. It is a simple cheap omnidirectional Antenna. There are no user settings or ways to change its operation. Doug So Doug when you said you went out to your 2020's on the lot so are you and employee of a dealership? Just curious as if you are then if someone asks about the television do you just say on or off just a simple reciever, radio same thing, stove, pump heck all of the stuff in an RV according to you statement is cheap no instructions needed. I am one of those people who like to know a product and how it functions maybe too many years in a the digital electronics world but I guess that is my problem. Good luck to you and your endeavors in life it is after all you are born you live you die simple on off no directions needed. I'm assuming that it probably rotates from the inside, or am I wrong about that? I thought maybe you didn't know that it rotates -if it does. I think that's what Doug means when he says that's all there is to know. Don I am a technician(40 years). I understand you want documentation. But, it is not needed once you have the parameters. At this point you and I have more knowledge on this Antenna than probably anybody in the USA including Jayco. Doug You sir are probably correct on the knowledge part, well except the person in customer service who finally got me sent in right direction and telling me it was a Steiner Industries product and not a Steinert Technologies product. Like I have said 37 years of having documentation on every bit of equipment we used that I am used to having it. Hey I did read how to thermostat, the charming Dometic one that everyone seems to have problems with have read that thru and understand it, even so far as the communication cable between it and the A/C and furnace having to communicate. I appreciate your assistance.

RE: The buy local fallacy

I traveled half way across the country to get my rig, cause the price made it worth it. There was a NHTSA recall on a pump leveling bracket. When I called my local dealer, the first thing the guy said on the phone was "They want us to ask if you bought it here for no particular reason" I said, "tell them I said to get f---ed for no particular reason and a NHTSA recall is a legal mandate and maybe you would like to hear from my attorney. They scheduled me for 8 AM the next day and treated me like gold. The buy local thing is just a myth they perpetuate to try to intimidate you and restrict competition. Plus I got plenty of outer competent shops in town if I need them

RE: Adj. water pressure regulators

I use one called Renator M11. Great quality brass with oil filled gauge. Got it on Amazon.

RE: V 10 mpg

On my 31 foot Jayco Greyhawk(2017), I'm getting 9.9 mpg if I keep my foot out of it. A little less if I pull the toad.The new 6 speed transmission helps a lot.

RE: Quick question about oil changes

Condensation is not a rumor. Once you take the oil out of the bottle the moisture in the air gets in it. Just a question mind you. IF the oil is sealed in the engine, with no leaks, and no way to get air in. Does it still condensate? The engine is not sealed. Its exposed to atmospheric conditions through the engine oil drain holes and some other places. Engines inhale and exhale every day with the changes in temperature, and when it goes below the dew point, condensate forms on the metal which contributes to rust. When the air cools(contracts), it inhales, and when it warms(expands) it exhales. The other thing that happens is the oxygen in the air starts to combine with the oil in a process called oxidation, which changes the properties of the oil in a bad way. When the engine runs, it makes a gallon of water for every gallon of fuel it burns. It's real apparent at startup when the engine is cold, and you see water coming out the tailpipe. The oil is really under attack from a lot of different directions. What it wants to do is form rust and sludge, the two big enemies of our engines.

RE: Thanksgiving

I keep trying to like tofu. Tried it in a dozen different ways; yuk no taste can't stand it. Thanksgiving is that once a year event when my relatives do their best to pretend they don't hate each other. It kinda works as long as we don't let the alcohol flow.

RE: Hulu price increases TWICE this year!

I have OTA with Roku streaming Sling, Netflix, Amazon prime. Sure, the cost may be approaching cable, but at least I'm paying for what I want to see instead of silly cable bundles with home shopping, food channel etc. I'm a news addict, so I need that on demand and am willing to pay for it.You mean that everything on those channels/boxes you mentioned is worth watching? I really find that kind of hard to believe. So you're still paying for content you don't want/watch. The thing that really irritates me about cable is that I have to pay a surcharge for sports' channels. I HATE professional sports/advertising, but I cannot opt out of that surcharge. Stupid. Of course not everything is worth watching, but it's far worse with satellite or cable. I get what your saying about sports. DTV use to charge $300 for their football package. I like football, but not enough to get ripped off for it. The nice thing about Sling/Netflix is there's plenty of good programming you can watch without any commercials. That's worth money to me since it saves so much time. Does anybody know how much time the networks commit to commercials? That's a key reason I went OTA. With cable/satellite, your essentially paying them to show you commercials. If I'm going to have to watch commercials, might as well be free.

RE: $600K Of Marijuana Seized in MH Near Joliet, IL

Repeat after me, I do not consent to a search of my person or belongings Exactly. I use to be of the mind that I've done nothing wrong so why not? Not anymore. If you listen to this Law school professor and defense attorney speak about not talking to the cops, not only is it unwise, it's foolish. Then in the second video a cop speaks and reinforces everything that professor says. Very informative and great speaking too.

RE: A Question Are you limited to life on pavement

Different strokes. Sometimes all you need to get away is an overnight in your own driveway. I sleep in my Greyhawk every night at home. My wife likes it that way. My snoring is similar to a Mount Saint Helens eruption. The queen shorty mattress did not last long.

RE: Serpentine Belt

I use the Gates belt. It's a good idea to also change out the tensioner when you get a new belt. There is a cheap little plastic tool that will give you an indicator of the wear on a serpentine belt. You really can't tell by looking. Carry a spare for cheap insurance. One of our members broke a belt on startup when an unfortunate squirrel got caught in it.

RE: 20 year old hoses

A beautiful rig for sure!!! I would change at least the radiator hoses. They go bad from the inside out. Looking and squeezing is not a reliable assessment.

RE: Be careful out there. There are some bad people

There has always been great debate over who was the best gunslinger in the old west. The one who historians really think was the best was Bat Masterson. A couple quotes from Masterson. "never let another guy get the drop on you" and "never pull a gun you don't intend to use" I hear a lot of folks here echoing that good advice.
