RE: 2020 Jayco GrayHawk Prestige 29 MVP Water Overflow?

Mini screens ? Or add petcocks. Dont drink water from the holding tank, use bottled water. I have access to holding tank which is under my bed. I cut an 8” hole in the top of the tank to match a marine deck plate that i installed to cover the 8” hole. I unscrew the deck plate to allow me to reach inside the tank to clean it. I could not believe how much slime i wiped off that interior plastic and i always sanitized my tanks with bleach as suggested. Bugs always find their way into holding tanks thats why i never drink that water.

RE: Propane tank

I have been using the Mopeka Tank Check sensors and free app, transmits fuel levels to your smart phone.....I find it extremely accurate. You need to buy the sensors in order for the free app to work, correct ? If so, how do they install ? Will they work on the class c horizontal tank ?

RE: Yellowstone and 30ft Motorhomes

Here is an old rvnet thread on the area. You could read it and ask now for specific updated info.

RE: 2002 Dynamax Carri-Go House Battery Location

Can you follow the cables under the MH from the converter area or from a battery cut off switch ? The negative wire is normally grounded to the frame somewhere near the battery. places to look, crawl under the MH to look for a battery box along the rails, under the entrance step , inside a baggage compartment or under the engine hood. I would think in 2002 it had to be in vented spot due to the common use of wet cell batteries.

RE: Freedom elite toilet

Thanks for the replies. I removed the toilet and there is no name tag anywhere. But the lid does say thetford. Ordered a new one rather than buy parts to fix because the parts, lid, valve and gaskets almost as much, over half the price of new. And the T bolts were so corroded I had to cut the bolts off with my angle grinder which heated up the bolt and damaged floor flange and toilet base. And besides my DW had already said just buy a new one??. Happy wife know the rest and it’s been over 50 years we’ve been married. Just make sure the rear water valve is in the same location on the new toilet so you do not have a possible clearance issue. My H/C water lines run along the floor behind my toilet and the lines are covered inside a wooden enclosure. The water valve at the rear of the new toilet hit the enclosure. I was able to alter the nut by shaving off a little plastic on the nut. I was lucky . :)

RE: Covid has not stopped the Off Road Motorhomes

People that work in Australia must get paid very well. :) Yes with people not being able to go overseas, RV production has gone up using online ordering Yes, I think its been a good rv sales year all over. At 50% capacity its difficult getting a campsite in the U.S. They certainly look beefy. I worry about tree branches scratching my rv while riding dirt roads, I guess if I owned one of those units I would worry about taking down the entire tree as well as the stump. :B

RE: Freedom elite toilet

Looking at 2011 31's for sale , if its a foot flush then it appears to be a Thetford aqua magic .

RE: Help! Looking for a manual 1985 Chevy G30 Rockwood

If you need to know something about your rv, ask here. If you need more specific info about something you are having a problem with, snap a pic and post it with your question. That will be more helpful than any general booklet that came with your rv. :)

RE: Steering stabilizer

It was money well spent. I agree with that. Most of the time we all think of crosswinds and a more comfortable ride. You would really appreciate that well spent money in the event of an emergency avoidance maneuver to avoid a deer, road debris or accident. Having an rv well tuned with stout parts will likely give you an edge in an event like that. Then it would be 'money very well spent'. :C :)

RE: Steering stabilizer

I would do a front end alignment first. x2. *That seems to have made the best difference for my class c. The shop had to add the Ford front end kit to give a +5 positive caster which was needed. *experiment with tire air pressure to fine tune. The stabilizer was the last of 5 handling mods that were done and it offered the least difference. My mods: alignment ( made it track better and helped with the crosswinds) FST / Bils shock upgrade, rear/front rear track bar (smoothed out the bumps) Rear track bar - (much like the proper alignment, helped being pushed by crosswinds and big rig bow waves) H.D. f/r sway bars by Hellwig (helped with side to side motion) Roadmaster steering stabilizer ( cant really say it did anything that I could feel) as I'm reading what others have posted, I should clarify that I replaced my OEM steering stabilizer that was not worn with the Roadmaster. That's probably why I did not notice that much of a difference.

RE: 2020 Jayco GrayHawk Prestige 29 MVP Water Overflow?

No real gravity fill anymore ? Hmm , maybe it's time to carry an extra pump in case the pump goes south. I started carrying an extra pump when my OEM pump died on Sat noon of a holiday weekend 75 miles from rv help. Its $79.00 insurance and you can keep the extra pump if you change rvs.

RE: Best house battery?

Yes, you can use a maintenance free wet cell. If you use two batteries, make sure they are both the same size and age otherwise the charging and depletion might be off sync. Detectors : Pull the fuse when you store it or install a toggle switch on the detectors if its running down your batts. Simply unscrew the detector, pull it off the wall and you will see the two thin wires powering it. Spice the toggle switch into the wiring and install the switch next to the detector. Use it when you need to. Another option is to install a knife switch onto the battery terminal to kill the power when you park it.

RE: Best house battery?

The 6v batts might be a little taller make sure you have room. If you accidently deplete an AGM below 50% it might be more forgiving once its charged back up but I have found in the 12v models, that AGM and wet cells were both fine for my off grid camping needs. What I do is carry a third 12v AGM battery that I run my 150w inverter off of when needed. I store it inside my toad and use it inside the rv on the floor out of the way. That battery is charged with my solar system or my genny off a separate smart charger that accepts agm charging rates. I use that for my 12v 40" tv that draws 5 amps :M. That battery also operates my Dish Network recvr. off the little inverter. Doing it that way saves the coach bank for my stereo system , lighting, furnace if I should need it and vent fans.

RE: Peeling out

No. I have heard the name and remember that shop being a long time family business when i was a Pulaski-Boylston member riding up on Tug Hill. Because of the good reviews and nearby location I just offered it as starting point to see if your in the $2,000 range or $10,000 range. The shop is an rv shop so it has tall doors and large bays to accept rvs

RE: Peeling out

RE: Peeling out

Personally, I would get a professional opinion from a good body shop who knows fiberglass. As far as I know gelcoat delamination is a common problem with many brands of rvs . I'm not sure if its a good idea to tackle a large area yourself if its a first time deal for you. I know that body shops have performed the task of repainting. If that's the case with your rv then you will need a 'dust free paint booth' inside a garage to work. The rv would need to be taped and wrapped in plastic to protect it from overspray. Surface prep, I would imagine, would be very important to be performed correctly. If that step is not done right then all your work will not last and need to be done over by a professional shop.
