RE: Slide moving out

A good RV technician can repair your problem or a hydraulic repair shop. Not many truck shops would want to tackle slide issues

RE: Jeep towed discharged when towing. This is new.

You say you towed this jeep for a few years with no problem, maybe your battery is failing. If a cell is shorted, it will run a your battery down. Most auto parts stores will load test it for no charge.I once had a battery that that would start my coach and I could drive all day until I turned the coach off. After a while the battery would cool down and start the coach again. The charge circuit was heating the plates and causing one to seperate but only while driving.

RE: Window shades?

Day/night roller shades work the best. Easy to clean, not noisy when you travel and actually help quite the inside when the noght shades are down. The can be purchased almost anywhere window coverings are sold and are not very expensive.

RE: Where is everyone getting their wiper blades?

You need 32's not 33's. 32's are a popular size for motorhomes. I get mine from Amazon and 55 dollars sounds about right. Like others said, shorter blades are cheaper.

RE: Alternative satellite option?

I use a roof mounted dish and carry a Tailgater but useally don't need the portable. I also habe a Verizon MiFi for streaming when in the southeast but it isn't much good in the North Central part of the U.S. Couldn't get a signal for streaming in Nebraska and the d Dakotas

RE: Back lights wire

Why not just pick up 12 volts from the ignition switch or just run a fused hot wire from the battery? might be easier.

RE: new satellite hook up?

I have used (2) 211k receivers for many years in the coach. I have a RF Mogal dish on the roof but cary a Tailgater for those times when I am under trees. You don't need a Wally to get satilite in the RV. I move the 211's back into the house when we are home and to the coach when we travel.

RE: Holiday Rambler Fuse location

I had a 15" Ambassidor and my power seats were fused from the panel you mentioned, front left basement door. I had the same issue, fuses were not labled. As a matter of fact, nothing was labled very well.

RE: Plastic sheeting under shower?

One of the first stages when building a coach is to put the floor down and then cover it with thin plastic sheeting to protect it during the rest of construction. What you are seeing maybe some of that plastic that wasn't removed pre delivery?

RE: Winnebago vs Tiffin

Winnebago has givin me greate tech support and the quality of their coaches goes without exception. Fit and finish is almost perfect. I looked at Newmar, Tiffin and Winnebago, all for their build quality and although I would have been happy with any one of them, I absolutely do not regret my choise.

RE: roof air

How ofter do you clean the filters. They should be cleaned every month when in use. The dirt thay gets past them will make the evaporator coil smell pretty bad after a short time.

RE: Water Heater

When I had a LP water heater I always had the electric element on. I now have Aqua Heat and only occasionally turn on the electric element.

RE: A/C Issue

A weak run capacitor could cause the amps to go up and open the thermal switch (klixon) when it cools and resets the compressor would start again. Just a thought.

RE: Newmar Dutch Aire 4304

Can't say it that price is fair without alot more info but as for parts, there should be no issue with getting replacement parts. Nothing on those coaches was proprietary other than the monogram.

RE: Serpentine belt

Assuming you mean because of a locked up air conditioning compressor, then that is quite a job, If the compressor is driven with the serpentine belt, when it locks up it will distroy the belt no matter how new it is.

RE: Class A-what year is it?

I just recently registered a 2019 and that is what my Florida title shows. It left the factory in August 2018 as a 2019 model and it rides on a 2017 freightliner chassis. Florida registers the house and not the chassis.

RE: Rust Around Basement Doors on Power Bridge Chassis

Sometimes its salt air, sometimes road salt and sometimes it the lack of care by the coach builder, not prepping the metal corectly. I've seen rust on the chassis frames on new coaches before. Surface rust can be delt with though.

RE: Class A automatic leveling never works!

I've owned 3 coaches with Powergear automatic levelors, never had an issue. Most of the time we look for level sites to begin with. a few times we ended up on sites that were pitched and used them manually, useally with wood blocks under the feet. Seems strange that an RV tech hasn't been able to find the issue and make repairs.

RE: Coleman mach 8 A/C

I haven't had any squarrel cage fans come apart but I did have the condenser fan blade break when the grommets that the motor mounts on failed. Happened to a friend recently too. That was on a 15" model. My new coach has a totally different condenser fan set up and is now called an assembly. Motor, blades and bracket are all one assembly now.

RE: Propane fill for parked motorhome?

Our local propane company will fill an RV tank but they charge a higher price per gallon when delivered. Odds are that someone in the area will be filling a large tank at their home close by and they could fill when in the area without a special trip.
