RE: Are damage deposits at parks customary?

I do not know if its customary! I will say I have never seen anything like that. I am sure there must be something written in the sign in sheet people sign about damage to the property. If I had to stay at a place like that I would do a pre-site inspection with the owner taking pictures and writing down every scratch, chip, etc on everything. With that said, move to a different place

RE: Winnebago Sunstar 27N Question

I used to have a 2017 Thor ACE 29.5 which is a little bit longer than the one you are asking about. I towed on a dolly a KIA with no problem, even in colorado. Never had windshield fans so can not answer that question. Do not have so never missed. The ac to me was a big mistake. My 29' only had one and it was very hard to keep it cool. We had to have fans running to help with the process. This was just in normal midwest temperatures. I can not believe the 2 foot difference in length would make that much cooling difference. You may want to go to the winnebago forums and see what is said there about the unit. I would say a big no to the mirrors Good luck safe travels

Hwy 36 across Kansas

I will be leaving the Denver area heading to Saint Joseph MO and plan to go hwy 36. Other than seeing alot of Kansas landscape is there anything else one should stop at and not miss? Its about a 10hr trip for me so plan on one over night, maybe two if there are things to no miss. Your help with sights would be helpful. I also posted this on irv2 with not much response. Hope that doesn't mean there's not much to see

RE: Dometic Teardrop stovetop RATTLES

This is one of those things that someone is going to have to be at the stove while you are driving down the road. My first thought was the grate over the burners. I do not know about your model but most stove grates have small rubber grommets between where the leg of the grate enters the stove. I am always replacing mine as they get lost very easily. Good Luck safe travels

RE: Child safety seats

I would do this, it may not be correct but in a MH you have to think out of the box. You did not say how old the kids are, if they are the age for front facing seats of either type. I would find your coaches seat belts and just use them. They are truly "seat belts" and will help. If the kids are in the rear facing seat age group, I guess I would use the seat belt and just strap them in, using their seat. There is not really system for seat belt use other than the front folks. I would make sure you have an adult who can supervise the kids as they are going to want to look around and stuff while you are driving. Good Luck safe travels

RE: Help/ Fresh Water Tank

I have done fiberglass repair on a holding tank 4 rigs ago. Its was a crack close to the exit fitting. For me it work very well however as I was working against gravity very messy. I first cleaned the area then drilled a small hole at each end of the crack. That will stop the crack from getting any larger. Than came the fiberglass cloth, hardener etc. It held very well for as long as I had the coach. There are other products out there now that may do as good if not better job. I am sure some folks will help out with that. Good Luck, safe travels

RE: Best Company for Extended Service Plan (ESP)

I had GSESP for many years on all of my different rigs. I had my 5th wheel and tow truck covered and I am glad I did. GSESP covered ALL of the steering components on both sides of my truck, well over 2,000. I would still have GSESP on my current coach but because of the age 07 the cost of ESP was way to high. Now the garage did have to get the ok to do the work, I believe GS had someone come out to check if needed to be done. I understand why this needed to be done. It seems there are folks out there who would take advantage of the system, do you believe that! Yes they may not cover stuff but then so do a lot of house ins. policies auto polices, even warranty policies. Just know what is covered and whats not. I like GSESP because they do not require you to go to a certain place to get the work done. I.E. if you are traveling and something happens your taken care of. Good Luck safe travels

RE: Suggestions for places near New Orleans LA.

A couple years back we visited New Orleans and stayed at Bayou Seggnette SP. Great park and easy access to the city, we were there during the off season so not many folks which made it nice.

RE: Window fog

I do not believe its a mfg problem. I know my coach is a 07 diesel and the front door glass is foggy. This is due to just being old I guess. The cost of a new glass for me is about $1200. I have read of two different methods to fix the problem. One is to remove the glass separate them clean very good and put back together with caulk and tape. Yes there will be not gas in the middle but to me its a trade off worth while. The second is a glass company replacing the glass with a single pain automotive glass. If you are talking about the normal window glass can not help on that one. I would not let the glass be the issue between getting the coach you like our not.

RE: Let's beat this horse once again

We downsized about 6 years ago from a 35' 5th Wheel. Thinking we did not need something that large and wanted something easier to set up. We decided on a 30' gasser 2017 v10 new rig. It was great enough power for what we wanted pulled the car etc. The engine noise was doable but then I have a hard time hearing anyway. After traveling a year and half we knew we lost some important things in the downsize. The holding tanks on the gasser were very small black was only 26 gal.. Maybe more important was lack of storage both inside and out. We started looking for different units and found that the diesels pushers have alot more outside storage than other units. Anyway my point is you need to look at what you are going to be doing with your rig. If for weekends a gasser may work out, if for long trips I would go with diesel. As we go out for months at a time the diesel with all its storage is the correct unit for us. By the way the 2007 Itasca Meridian is so much better built than the 2017 gasser.

RE: Fl to Mo thoughts

Take hwy64 out of Memphis to hwy 65 then up to Springfield. I drove it coming back from Memphis to Branson instead of the 60 63 route. Much better drive

RE: Onan 7500 generator wont start in cold

I just had somewhat the same problem. My Onan 8000 diesel would not start. I would hold down the stop button to heat glow plug then the start button. Nothing would happen other than I would hear the fuel pump working. I cleaned everything looked at everything. My RV tech told me to start the engine let it run for 30 min or so then try and start the gen.. Sure enough the gen started. I also was plugged in but found out the coach batteries were no good. The volts would read 13.5+/- so I thought all was ok. Took batteries out and had them tested the volts were good but the amps were not there to do much of anything. I learned its the amps that to the work. Just another note the gen also started with the motor running and the coach batteries disconnected. Get batteries checked

RE: Oil rubbed bronze Handheld Showerhead

To me the Oxygenics 26488 BodySpa RV Handheld Shower is the best. I have put it in my past 3 RVs and have no complaints. Water pressure is great vs. water usage. For you however it only comes in chrome and white. I think you are going to have to make a choice.

RE: Slide rubber

If they are not doing the job, its time to replace. The water leakage will do more harm than the time spent replacing. Check out Steele Rubber for replacement. https://www.steelerubber.com/

RE: I just got the new RV Magazine

Some of you will remember the "Highways" magazine that I believe came out quarterly. That really had some good information in it, and worth reading. Then GS combined it with the Trailer life and MH magazine, which as you know is mostly selling rv stuff. Over the months the articles stopped and then it just became a sales magazine. Now to the beginning of 2021 a great idea from GS/CW lets combine all magazines into one and save money. So we received ours like most did the other day. I gave my DW the first chance to page through it. When it was my turn to look through I was trying to find the stories, the good things to read, stuff other than the merchandise. I made a comment to my DW how stupid this magazine was compared to past things. I was then inform by her that this was a "CATALOG" not a magazine, much like the old Sears was. I told her she was 100% correct so i put it where the old Sears Catalogs would go. Right in the Crapper.

RE: Warm weather traveling

With my three class a's I have always ran the gen.,I start the motor then start the gen. unplug and off I go. The reason for me makes sense. The coach stays cool all the time, this way once stopped with no dash air the coach is already cool. I also like to keep the frig running on 120v with the gen. running my frig stays cold also. When stopping and want something warmed up to eat in the microwave its ready to go. Generators are made to run the little fuel they use to me is not worth it. But then I am not concerned about my fuel mileage. I have the coach to use if I get 5mpg or 50 mpg I am going to use the coach. Enjoy
