RE: Washer issue driving me nuts

HE washers, top load and front load, are supposed to have a "cleaning" cycle run once a month (I think Splendide manufacturer says every 30 washes). It should have come with the directions for your washer. My HE top loader has a "clean" cycle (just add bleach) just for cleaning. I find it easier to run the clean cycle on the 1st day of every month. Otherwise you can buy a product called Affresh and run that in a cleaning cycle OR a short cycle (NOT a fill and dump cycle but an actual wash cycle). On a front loader, you MUST wipe out the backside channel of the flange around the door as it will smell nasty and can also make your clothes smell. You may not notice your clothes smelling if you use a heavily scented fabric softener or detergent (do you smell like "Eau de Gain" or a similar detergent/softener?). Don't forget to clean the detergent/bleach/softener dispenser cups. OK, I give up! What is a "HE" washer??? Never mind, I figured it out!

RE: Foggy windows help please

Nice job Mr. Brown! You can be proud of your work. I also believe that dual pane windows do a lot to keep the RV warm in cold weather and cold in hot weather.

RE: Dipping my fuel tank

Found my problem getting full to my generator. Bad fuel line. I'm lower then a 1/4 tank of fuel so I think it's a good time. Has anyone ever pulled the tank if so what im I getting in to? Pros and cons Maybe I misunderstood, but the generator fuel line is not supposed to empty the tank, but rather, it only goes down to 1/4 full. This is to prevent the tank from emptying which would prevent the DP from running (to get more)!

RE: Extinction of Fossil Fuels

What you say is so true, yet there is very little we can do about this except to vote, and hope the elected persons are smart enough to understand what is going on, and move in the right direction.

RE: Daytime Running Lights.

Quick update: My repair shop, one of the few which will actually work on RVs, has had my RV since last Thursday. Apparently it takes a laptop in addition to the Ford tool to simply enable the DRLs and their trained tech hasn't had them time to accomplish this. I find this somewhat disturbing considering in 2004 a Dodge tech turned on my DRLs on my RAM 3500 in the parking lot in about 5 minutes. Ford has a better idea!

RE: Southern luxury rv resorts. Need Ideas

For the past several years we have stayed at Thousand Trails in Clermont Fl, near Orlando. The facility is huge, and has lots of things for kids including swimming, playgrounds, biking, etc. Also, there are always tons of kids playing in a large green area surrounded by RVs. Most campsites are large, and W,S,E equipped.

RE: 2005 Fleetwood Expedition

Personally I would avoid RV with a Cat engine. Cat got into the RV business back around 2005 and failed terrible, then got out as quick as they got in. The engines are bad, but service is. This is why you will see so many RVs for sale at low prices, with Cat engines Sorry, but you must be confused. I have had predecesors of the C7s (3126) from 95, 2000 and now a 2005. CAT has been in the business forever. The C9 and the C7 are both great engines, as a metter of fact, they are considered the best engines. The only issue on the C7 is the HUEI pump. It is very sensitive to oil changes and bad fuel. My only concern would be that it does not have enough miles. It sat all its life. That is normally a bad thing because everything dries up and you get leaks and blo up hoses. I just realized I made a mistake describing the Cat engines. I agree that Cat makes a great engine. My comment had to do with RV service. Cat really doesn't like to work on RVs, even with a Cat engine.

RE: LP gas leak

YELLOW THREAD SEAL TAPE meets all gas company standards for gas lines of ALL types including butane and propane. It's important to use the right thread seal tape for gas and the yellow tape is the only safe choice.

RE: Daytime Running Lights.

Are those the lights that always blind me when coming toward me? Always wonder what kind of death wish the driver has, that he wants to blind me coming toward him such that I may accidentally drift over into his lane and hit him head on! Just curious. Huh? You may want to check your blood sugar or something…cause you’re not making sense. Hmmm, sorry to hear that. Maybe next time will be easier.

RE: Fabric ceilings

You have to be careful because the fabric is frequently glued to plywood and too much cleaner will bring out the stain from the plywood onto the fabric and then it is done for.

RE: Three-pronged plugs

I make my own extension cords up. Usually with industrial spec or green dot hospital grade plugs and receptacles. I hear what you say, but those are hard to find and EXPENSIVE! I have found that the Leviton Clamptite 3W101 plugs and 3W102 outlets are adequate for up to 16/3 SJOOW cordage. Reasonably priced. Your SO cord is only rated 10 amps. Not enough for a good extension cord with 15 or 20 amp plugs.

RE: No scheduled maintenance on Ford Superduty

Synthetic fluid! My wife has a 2007 Toyota Camry. Never has been changed per owner manual. My Cummins powered motorhome has a 50,000 mile change out IF if has synthetic fluid.

RE: House Batteries not being charged by engine.

Man am I disappointed. I thought this would last until the New Year and give me some entertainment.
