RE: RV carport/shelter

I just measured our 29b and it is 9'6" from the ground to the extrusion at the top of the side. Then there is the sharp curve where the roof meets the sidewall. + 3 1/2", then the fridge vent on the sloped roof + 4". So just in from the side I'm over 10'. Don't forget the ladder going up and over, mine is on the back but realtivley close to the side, max air covers. I would go with a 12' wall, maybe 11' IF the framework went to a minimum clearance of 12'+. That would be the minimum if you are backing under from a level driveway. Ken

RE: Melting wires

Improperly tightened wire connections. Loose causing poor connections generating a lot of heat. Dangerous. If you're not 100% comfortable working with 120 volt AC wiring, get a professional to check it out. Ken

RE: Flashlights

Harbor Freight specials, even have one hanging on the linen closet door handle at home, just in case I can't find the cell phone. Ken

RE: Disconnect Power When Using Generator?

"With all the home wiring jobs discussed on it is a big unknown if all RVs still meet code to isolate the cord. For a properly wired and maintained RV there is no issue." X2. They Probably had an issue umpteen years ago that fed power back into the park grid. Ken

RE: UPDATED - Ran over Gator

"You were a couple hundred feet too close for emergency stop" Not necessarily, the truck could have been in a different lane and threw the gator into another driving lane. I have seen worse, the gator being thrown up and taking out the windshield of a car. Ken

RE: Leaking pressure relief valve.

Before replacing, try 'cleaning' it. There could be some debris in the seal area. With the water cool/cold but under pump pressure, flip it open and closed a couple of times, this might be enough to clean it and stop the leak, also a good time to turn the pump off and re-establish the air bubble. Cost $zero. If that doesn't work, time to replace. Ken

RE: Hooks on my counters

If they are glued on, two sided tape etc. Use a length of fishing line and use a sawing action to cut through the adhesive. Tie each end of the line to some type of holder, eye hooks or something easy to hold and not cut your fingers. Left over glue residue, will be another project to clean. Ken

RE: Newbie - Class A or Class C

How many grandchildren do you have and realistically how many will travelling with you at any one time. The Coachman c-class will most likely have the cab over bunk for 2 extra sleeping positions. Both units will the couch and dinette for sleeping as well. Get the floor plan that works best for you, slides IN and OUT. Personally,after owning a c-class, I now would go with an A. More living space, seating choices when the cab seats are swivelled. Driving, pros, cons, personal preference for each, I might take a day or 2 to get used to either. Both units are the same width, approximately the same height. According to the model number , the A is about 3 ft longer, not much when driving on the highway. Ken

RE: How do you know how much you can TRULY pull?

See if Toyota oh and small print (*,1,2) etc with that tow rating. I know Honda did at one time. 5000lbs if it was a boat or flat bed trailer, but only 3500 if a box or travel trailer. IMHO, you shouldn't have a problem with a 4000lb gvwr trailer, even the ideal tongue weight 400+ lbs should not eat into the Highlander cargo carrying capacity. Enjoy your RV Ken

RE: Any help? First camper/trip issue with water heater.

I agree with Roger, probably a blockage (spiders etc). There is a brush made for cleaning BBQ tubes, about 1" diameter on a loong flexible handle. Run it through the propane burner tubes and then the chimney, follow up with some compressed air. A general cleaning and then try it. Ken

RE: To buy or not to buy insurance?

Can you afford a $30000 (-1000 deductable, 600yr premiums) if something should happen, fire, water, accident, that totalled your investment? Maybe re think after 5 or 10 years. Ken Edit added, from another recent post, stolen. Ken

RE: E-450 Spare Tire carriers

My 2008 Winnebago came from the factory with a spare carrier mounted underneath. The spare has never been on the ground! The same as Desert captain. A rectangular boxes made from 1" square tubing, and a centre plate with studs to hold the rim/tire. It's hinged on the drivers side mount to the frame. On the other side, the threaded stud coming down. Held up by a large wing nut and secured by a snap pin, so it can't vibrate loose. Hint once a year or two, take it down and lubricate or use anti-seize on all moving parts/nuts. Better than having to use heat and a breaker bar when you really need it, side of Interstate in the rain. Ken

RE: canadian insurance

I've used Wayfarer Insurance, since buying the MH 13yrs ago. No problems with them, for the one claim I had 12yrs ago, broken side window. It is a local (to me Ontario) company that specializes in RVs of all types. I see them a couple of times a year at the Toronto RV shows. They staff their booth with knowledgeable and enthusiastic members of there staff, Ken

RE: Should we buy a Ford 5th Wheel Hitch?

Pin weight 16800 @ 20% is 3360 lbs leaving 240 lbs for all other cargo, including the hitch (200 +/- lbs) and passengers in the truck. Pin weight maybe less but could be up to 25%. Also is that 3600 payload a brochure weight for a basic truck with no options. Ken

RE: Circut breaker question

"If she used an adapter and plugged into 50amp would that cause damage to the trailers electrical system." No, the input breaker on the trailer system would be a 30 amp breaker and would trip if the trailer (2nd AC unit) plus other things tried to pull more than the 30 amps. Ken

RE: Kwikee Steps

"On the trips we have taken since the motor was fixed, this didn't happen. It just started yesterday." My suggestion would check and make sure all connections are clean and tight, especially the 2 ground connections on the steps. Ken
