RE: More efficient propane furnace

No, In my experiance, the RV industry is still using the same furnaces as they were thirty years ago. With the exception of outsourcing some components and fancy electronics that will be sure to pre maturely fail. Nothing as far as efficiently has changed. Some will say they are as efficient as can be expected in such a small package. I will be looking forward to hearing some new things I am ignorant of.

RE: 1998 Holiday Rambler Vacationer? 13k Is it worth it?

The harsh reality is that any RV of that age will most likely will require an expenditure equal to the purchase price in the first year to keep it on the road and fully functional. There are rare exceptions, but considering your inexperience you will not know the difference until it is too late. No offence intended, I am only pointing out what seems to be the obvious to any experienced RVer. Considering everything involved, my opinion is, you should rent an apartment in close proximity to where the new house is being built and be there every day to watch over the project. Building a home is a monumental project and the ramifications of problems may last for decades. I am in envy that you have the resources to proceed with such a plan, but I would not attempt it due to some of the above reasons. The idea to go on the road and tour the country to return to a new and perfect home are just not realistic in my opinion. I genuinely hope other members will chime in with a more optimistic outlook. A full “Pre Delivery” inspection of an RV before purchase should take about four hours to check out all the systems and the entire rig from top to bottom. Take a ladder, creeper, flashlight, multimeter, camera, and lunch. DO NOT, supply any payment or deposit in advance, that will be the end of your negotiating advantage. Best of luck.

RE: A very old stray {The Old Fella Story}

Burch, Awhile back, one of your little guys was having a lot of trouble with it's anal glands. Were you able to get it under control?

RE: Outrageous CA registration fee!

I guess I’m skating by on my US$46 ($60 CDN) a year. :B

RE: Outrageous CA registration fee!

Is that a one time registration or annual? Some states have gone to a permanent trailer plate, so you only pay once. Great if you hold the trailer for 20-30yrs...not so good if you trade every 2-5yrs. Annual........

RE: Outrageous CA registration fee!

Last December we bought a 2000 Airstream Land Yacht. They want $775 to register it for 2022! WTH? We never paid anything like that much before on our previous motorhome. Is this some new punishment from our governor for our "carbon footprint" or some such nonsense? Does anyone know what's going on? We are furious! We love living here for the climate and geography but this has to be the worst governed state in the union. You may as well get used to it, under the current valuation to registration charges, in four or five years it will go down to about $600. For the first time, Californians have the opportunity to pay more for vehicle registration than many pay for insurance! Aparently the residents like it, 66% just voted to keep the administration in dictatorship. You should enjoy your gas prices, it is only $7 a gallon close to you, coming to your neighborhood soon. Click Here "this has to be the worst governed state in the union" You are just figuring this out now?

RE: Broke my hitch pin today

"The problem is that there may not be any 3" shanks that work with weight distribution made. If a source is found, please post it." This is what I found, Equalizer did not make a 3" with enough drop for my set-up.

RE: Batteries won't hold charge - need help

Some older RV refrigerators have this: "The climate control switch (sometimes called a humidity switch).is used to control frost that may collect during very high humidity situations. The RV refrigerator climate control Switch controls a 12-volt heat tape behind the metal frame around the refrigerator and freezer doors." This switch is often a small toggle switch semi hidden on the frame of the door on the fridge. Even when the fridge is off, if this switch is left in the "On" position, it continues to draw power. This was a common problem when the switch was overlooked causing dead batteries for seemingly no reason.

RE: A very old stray {The Old Fella Story}

I remember all the obstacles of the original rescue, the across country trip for Anna, the statue and the bricks, and the establishment of the shelter. Richard and Old fella have made quite a legacy. I am sure there are many more highlights others can remember.

RE: Rusty grille - How to avoid

When I wanted a different grate / cooking surface for my favorite RV / portable grill, I simply found an oversized version of what I wanted and cut it down to fit. I liked it so much, I made a spare grate and obtained another grill too :B Since the original was circa 1985, I went to eBay for an extra complete grill "new in the box" Back then, LP grills had "Lava Rock", I replaced that heat diffusion media with a more modern ceramic product as well. Now I have a one of a kind tiny grill that actually works better than any full sized BBQ I have ever used...............

RE: tow limit - 1984 Ford Honey with 460 motor under hood

I had that same RV for ten years, the truck frame stops just behind the rear axle. The RV manufacturer welds / adds a channel to extend the back part of the Motorhome frame. Often this channel extension is considerably smaller than the OEM truck frame and the receiver / hitch is attached to that. You will want to have a welding shop inspect the hitch for overall capacity evaluation and possibly beef it up with some extra welded brackets or replace it all together with a higher rated hitch. You will experience 4 to 5 mpg @60 mph that's about 28 ounces of gas a minute! :B

RE: RV Rebuild Website - Online soon - Input?

Thanks! :B Is the comment section hard to notice? Should I move the see below... further up the page? I appreciate your support! Well, it should not be hard to notice, it is certainly large enough. I guess I got so excited wanting to start reading I over looked it? Or my attention span is too short or I am too dumb :B I did eventually catch on....

RE: RV Rebuild Website - Online soon - Input?

Well, if we look on the bright side, there are several other RV related sites that might appreciate a traffic creating story such as this. I just noticed that you have included a comment section at the bottom of the home page, that should help make your page self sustaining for years to come. I will raise one or four in your honor today, CHEERS! :B

RE: RV Rebuild Website - Online soon - Input?

I guess no one noticed the nice dedication to RV.Net. "I would like to dedicate this site to all fellow RV enthusiasts, but very specifically to all the wonderful friends on RV.Net. The RV.Net site has been a wonderful source of inspiration on so many levels since I joined in December 2003. They are My RV Family. When I was so exasperated with the staggering project I got myself into that I wanted to push it into the street and set fire to it, I would go to RV.Net and read many of the rebuild threads and follow them through. It gave me hope and the incentive to forge on, keep going and not quit. One in particular is a motorhome rebuild by Clubmaxx that inspired me more than anything. I read and studied it dozens of times. I wish he was still a member. I can only hope that the content here will help others in their quest to effect their own repair or rebuild on their RV of choice.. I thank you all."

RE: RV Rebuild Website - Online soon - Input?

WHHAAAAT! :E :( :M :h Then would it be okay for someone other than yourself to present a link to let's say an "interesting site". This has been done thousands of times here, will they delete all threads that have a link in them. I don't get it.......... I have book marked the link for future reference.

Now that you are on a roll, is it about time for the "Topic" title to be edited? Maybe a click bait title :B

RE: RV Rebuild Website - Online soon - Input?

I got through the fifth chapter "Walls Rebuild" Great pic of the Grandson! That was a LOT of work! I especially liked the part that showed "Solid Blocking". I don't know why more people don't think of that. Half of the way through, while I was reading, I was thinking to myself, "I wonder what kind of hilarious comments Bob's neighbors must have made to him" :E:B:h Then at the end of the chapter, you said "I wonder what my neighbors think of me......" Care to share any responses from your neighbors? It looks like a really nice neighborhood.
