RE: Small dryer in Minnie Winnie 25b basement.

Wow, cmon guys…. @clutchdust, the OP asked an honest well thought out question and is obviously trying to make sure it’s a safe arrangement. And you’re trying to complain about where he is or isn’t going to dump his hypothetical wash water? Maybe spend your efforts on understanding your audience and not inadvertently insulting their intelligence. Assume much? Complain? Asking a question chief. I never thought his intelligence needed to be insulted, you did. You have anger issues. You never fail to add your two cents where it may not be appropriate. Ill post what I care to post, non of your business. and it's Klutchdust.

RE: Small dryer in Minnie Winnie 25b basement.

So far I’ve seen several “ratings” including rotocast manufacturers who rate every bin at 250 lbs capacity. No info in Winnebago documents. Seems the total weight including cargo carry and axle weight are all they publish. I be already gotten good advice here so not too worried about Buster and Festus. :-) The advice that said don't do it, I agree. Start saving your quarters. What wasn't mentioned is the venting of the dryer, the warm/hot air with moisture and lint in it, then the washing machine water will be going into the parks sewer system correct? Or do you plan on dumping the water to the ground in a camping area that offers dry camping only. Asking for a friend.

RE: Small dryer in Minnie Winnie 25b basement.

Don't get yourself into trouble by not getting the information that accurately describes what that storage area can actually hold. When someone says I want to...i need to...Will this work ...and they are asking a group of well intentioned but unfamiliar folks and you end up with something like the photo. below https://i.imgur.com/alx3ZYBl.jpg The towed vehicle had no base plate, Buster said "don't need one" The angle? Festus said "can't see it from my house" How fast can i go? louie said "fast as you want, makes no difference" Lol. ;)

RE: Chevrolet 4500 service

Who can service the Chevrolet portion on my 2020Jayco Rehawk 22C in the dallas, tx. area What needs to be done. You might consider a mobile RV service . They come to you.

RE: Stability control

The curb roll on my 30' Cambria was minimized by the addition/changing of the shocks to Koni vs. what Ford installed on the chassis. Curious to see what the Sumo can do. Was under the impression they were meant to be more of a weight bearing device.

RE: Taking B+/C Offroad Experiences

https://i.imgur.com/MEqY2Iwl.jpg We checked the road and it was hard and compact. Well, the tail on my rig is a bit long and it didn't take much for it to drag. My buddy russ is underneath and with the levelers and some planks we were shortly on our way, which basically was I backed up and camped there. https://i.imgur.com/g0ceNsEl.jpg 60 miles from town but we had a few other rigs/trucks with us and it was a great weekend. I hosted a camera crew from Sweden for the weekend and somewhere there is a video of our desert adventures being shown. Russ is the most experienced desert traveler i have ever known and we were both surprised this sunk like it did. Maybe that's when my spare tire rack bent and couldn't remove the tire when i had a flat once.

RE: Axxera avm70 touch screen not responding to touch

I just purchased a used 2018 Thor Freedom Elite 22FE the radio works and I can scroll with the mobs, the screen does not react to touch at all. Any suggestions. My past experiences with touch screens in vehicles was to disconnect the chassis battery and let the screen reboot, if you will. The screen in my '19 rubicon would not respond and that was what was suggested to do and it worked.

RE: Replacement for broken cover

Is there another one to compare it with? Mc Master Carr may have something. RV parts are whatever the manufacturer could source at that time to fill the need. Doubtful that cover is even made any longer, who knows.

RE: Stability control

I would start with an alignment. Replacing or adding parts before having the alignment checked could be a waste of money. If it needs new ball joints, they find that out during the alignment. -Michael Doubtful that anyone that has upgraded their suspension from stock has any regrets. Just changing the shocks on my Cambria eliminated the side to side roll and that awful RR crossing banging that is all too frequent. Alignment, done right, will help for sure.

RE: Stability control

Front and rear stabilizers, wheel alignment and Koni shocks for my Cambria.

RE: Changing a tire yourself

My only flat on my C in 6 years and when AAA got there we found the bracket holding the spare tire into the rack was bent. he had to unbolt and remove the rack to get the tire out, so do check that from time to time. And he borrowed my tools to do the job.

RE: Paint/fabric protection package

You didn't purchase the extended warranty for $$$$ did you? Pretty much worthless gimmicks that reward the seller generously.

RE: Trying to diagnose a loud rattle coming from the floorboard

All of my delayed rattles have been exhaust related. My Jeep, motorhome and diesel pickup. Inspect very closely, there is metal touching metal somewhere. My GMC it was the bracket that holds the exhaust as it leaves the manifold, my jeep a crossover bracket connected to the cat and my "C" a exhaust shield bracket under the shield and difficult to see. I found my rattle on my C by driving home after smog inspection with the dog house off, kind of tough to do and only a few miles but the rattle noise with and without the dog house sounds like two totally different areas. To check your motor mount, raise hood, apply parking brake and gently accelerate and see if the engine tilts or lifts. You can have someone watch from a safe distance or record with your phone. Hold foot brake as well, just a touch on the accelerator will do it.

RE: Smog Test Mystery

" Note: you might actually spend the extra money and have it tested by another shop before you need the smog cert -" Why? Test only shops are just that. The man is a scammer and should be reported. Just like the jiffy lube type shops, they always say you need a new air cleaner at 3x the cost of an auto parts store then you need a brake flush, engine flush, trans flush which are all unnecessary and damaging to the transmission. My friend Jerry had a trans shop for 35years. His volume increased once trans flushes became popular. Drop the pan and filter and refill. Or get that "piece of mind" thing and end up having it rebuilt, you choose. And don't forget that extended warranty....:R First, we don't even know if he was charging for the fix. It may have been something as simple as letting the engine warm up first. Those don't equate to a scammer, just a smart tech who is saving the OP time and money. Second, my suggestion of having the vehicle tested elsewhere before the test is required is in the case the vehicle is failing the test and the tech was pulling some sort of fraud with the DMV. I'd hate to take it to another shop at registration time and find out it needed a lot of work to pass legally. Doing it early would give me time to budget out any repairs. The OP wrote...." to the same smog test only shop "'' so, the shop is not permitted, by California law, to do ANY repairs to a vehicle being smogged. IF your vehicle fails, it goes to another shop then returns for a free re-test. Doubtful that year after it always needs a little bit of $$$ something.

RE: Gen-set Troubles

Google carburetor gummed up with ethanol. Very likely your problem is gummed up carburetor fouled and something else. Cummins is the best place to take it but expensive. It's a simple gasoline engine, what does Cummins need to do that a mobile RV mechanic could not. The carb can be removed and cleaned, replacement parts are available. Not much more than a large mower motor in my opinion. BTW, mine had similar symptoms and a fuel pump cured it. Recently it would not start at all, found a wire chaffed and broke. Check the wiring loom. Frequent start ups deters rodents also. I have a solar powered light that illuminates the area in front, then brightens if it detects movement. Rats don't like lights.

RE: Smog Test Mystery

This shop/man is a fraud. Go someplace else and report him. What he is telling you is nonsense. I took my "C" to the pyramid looking place on Grand and LaVeta and was always an easy smog. Also i always disputed the motorhome extra fee as basically they are smogging a Ford pick up. Now IF they remove the doghouse then they will charge extra. Why they have to remove it puzzles me. Anyway, go to a legitimate shop, this one isn't.

RE: Gen-set Troubles

Repair this one, much less than a new one. Find a mobile RV mechanic near you. It sounds fuel related, maybe pump, filter or fuel lines. Sta Bill IMHO is worthless. I added that to all fuel for all my small engines and they still gum up after a month.

RE: Looking for RV docs for 2000 Fleetwood Tioga

What documents would be helpful. The manuals for the appliances are readily available on line and those items are not that specific to one brand or model of coach. The chassis is the same. In my years of ownership of my Itasca, I rarely if ever looked at the large binder for any information, it was easier to do a search online. Good luck in your search and welcome.
