RE: Ice Maker Quit

I also do what Hoefler does. I have also poured warm water into the ice tray when cubes seem to be trapped and cannot be moved.

RE: Black Tank Odors

I abandoned the check valve and ran flexible tubing from the removed check valve pipe to the exterior. Life is good now!

RE: Black Tank Odors

MFL might have identified your problem. My grey water vent pipe was installed too deep into the tank and would not function when the tank became full, and would vent through the kitchen sink.

RE: pie day?

My structural engineer retired on 03/14/16 in awe of PI. He rounded it a bit.

RE: Best 22.5 tire for 22,000 lb motor home?

I went to Toyo, some say that is a rougher ride, but I have not noticed that. I'm glad to be done with the Michelin sidewall failure issues, which mine previous tires had.

RE: Road to travel

Be sure to stop at Hama Hama Oysters for their oysters on 101. I've planted 7,500 oysters on my own beach in the last 5 years, but I love to visit with them for their wisdom. . . and a few of their BBQ'd oysters. They are great people.

RE: Road to travel

Check the weather, 50+ miles of 101 along Hood Canal has been closed for many days recently from snow depth and fallen trees. It's been a difficult weather year.

RE: Using my Class A in freezing weather?

That sounds like a very good idea Ron where did you find that mat? Google "Floor Heating Mat" They are intended for warehouse/factory workers that need to stand in cold environments. I also use a 35F thermal switch for it to come on by itself, when needed. I saw them listed at Home Depot and Target.

RE: Using my Class A in freezing weather?

I hang a 24x36" 120v AC floor heating mat in my wet bay during very cold weather.

RE: Las vegas

We also like Oasis RV Park. We had my cousins from Finland fly in and stay with us there. When we walked around LV at night they mostly had their mouths open staring at the spectacle. He wanted to buy dinner for my birthday at the Bellagio. . . he spent more on the tip than he had ever paid for a dinner!

RE: Indian Reservations

Don't look them in the eye. Be polite. If they say "maybe" take that as a no. Be sure to visit the Crazyhorse monument. Be sure to visit the National Music Museum at Vermilion SD. Partake of the Lion's Club free campground with power, water and a bathhouse, while there. No Boondocking at Rapid City. Well said

RE: Indian Reservations

I spent 2 years as a Community Organizer in an off-reservation Lakota Sioux Community near Rapid City, SD many years ago. I learned many things, and had great and challenging experiences. It depends on your attitude, that will determine your experiences. Be gentle, speak softly, and shake hands gently. You should have no issues. Many reservations are "dry" where alcohol is not permitted.

RE: New Batteries

Thanks for all you responses, you gave me confidence in replacing what I have. I'm truly amazed that the price hasn't changed much!

RE: New Batteries

Lithium is the answer if you have "deep pockets" ! Battle Born is the Cadillac but they also charge Cadillac prices. There are several lesser known brands on the market that are challenging BB in both price and amount of power stored. SOK has gotten very good online reviews. Bonus is two SOK batteries actually have more "usable storage" than your 4 6V lead acid and they weight a lot less ! Be aware you may have to upgrade your converter as lithium has different charging requirements Thanks I understand that I may need to upgrade the converter and revise shared starting issues when the starting and house batteries can share that function. I plan on keeping the MH for another 10 years, if I last that long?

New Batteries

I have (4) 6v Group 24 Interstate golf cart batteries (232 Ah) purchased in 2014 that seem to be getting tired and do not seem to come up to charge anymore. I am looking to replace them and am interested in looking and any and all options: Lithium, AGM or? Any thoughts?

RE: Tires?

I also changed my Michelins with Toyo's. Michelin has had issues with sidewall deterioration. Do you have a reference for that? I've had 2 set of Michelins, they give a softer ride, and longer life. I agree that Michelins have a softer ride. I can't seem to find an official reference, but Google "Michelin RV tire sidewall cracks" for lots of discussion of the issue.

RE: New Class A Winnebago owners

We have a 2008 Itasca SunCruiser 35L that we bought in 2011 with 6,400 miles on it. We put about 5,000 miles per year on it and have had very few issues. Ours came with terrific manuals, and I have links to additional manuals on-line. I try to do most of the work myself, but use a local mechanic for chassis / engine work, and a RV repair facility nearby for repairs beyond my capabilities. Y-Guy provides good advice. . . keep up with things and enjoy it.

RE: HOW did you choose your Class A ? ....

We had purchased a 2002 Triple E Senator Class C motorhome from a rental agency in BC, Canada. It was a great MH, but we needed something a bit larger and perhaps with slides. The new search began. We searched many local MH dealers, and were looking for a 30+ foot diesel pusher with slides. We found a 35' 2008 Itasca Suncruiser that we love and we bought in 2011. Then salesman (a blues guitarist for the WHO) convinced us that a gas version was more appropriate for us. We entered the MH on a cold day with the heat on, classical music playing, and with mood lighting. We were sold! The MH had been used by his step-father on a trip to Yellowstone, where he had a heart attack, and never used the MH again. It had 6,400 miles on it and was 3 years old. They gave us a great price for our Triple E and we negotiated a great price. We have never looked back. Good luck with your search!
