RE: Paint/fabric protection package

I spent a year doing prep and detail for a Ford dealer in the earlyv1980s. When a buyer purchased the $199.00 "fabric protection" package, we sprayed a can of Scotchguard on the seats if we had it. If we didn't have it we sprayed nothing. I worked at a dealership in the 90's as well. They really pushed the ceramic coating on the cars with a 5 year guarantee. I was talking with the installer and ask if there was any maintenance involved after the application. His reply was he would recommend a good paste wax twice a year. OP these treatments do nothing more than lighten your wallet.

RE: Test for charging house batt

This is a simple test that will tell you if your charger works. But not how well or efficiently the charger works. Unplug your shore power and run the furnace blower for 2 minutes to pull any surface charge off the batteries. Put the volt meter on DC volts. The DC volts symbol looks like a solid line on top with a dotted line under it. If there are multiple selections for DC volts then put it on 20v or the closest reading that is more than 12. Measure the voltage at the batteries. Then plug the RV in and measure the voltage again. If the voltage increases you are charging.

RE: Purchase hesitation after deposit, 2 questions

Tough call. Are they sagging in the middle on on the edge? Mine have a small sag in them that I can push up on. I pulled down one of the AC vents and I could see up into the ceiling and there is no sign of leakage. Maybe the dealer will have one of their people pull down a vent or two so you can stick your phone up there and take a picture. As far as getting the deposit back, only the dealer can tell you. Hopefully they will allow it though.

RE: Windshield gasket leak

It will depend on many things. But first we really need to know what kind of RV you're dealing with. Is it a class A Class C a Class B van or a cabover camper.? can you give us the year make and model so we can make a more educated guess?

RE: Laptop battery stored in a cold car...?

Hide the laptop before you get to the airport. No need to have someone observe you parking and then hiding something then leaving. Probably doesn't matter if you take the battery out. But if it removes easily then why not?

I screwed up when I was registering on this site and I didn’t make a signature with that info. Now I have searched and clicked the help button but can’t find where I go to do that. Also can’t figure how to post pictures. The coach is a 40’ 2000 Newmar London Aire. There are two places you can visit to add or change information about you and your rig.

RE: Puzzled by Refrigerator Problem

Eddie, there was SOMETHING not working right. the little flame I could see was not the main burner. When the main burner is on you can see a bigger flame, and also can hear the "roar" of the full combustion. MT Bob, hope you're right and it'll work for the next month (or several years!) I'm making a big note about the fuse trick. Anyway, I went back out an hour or so after it finally fired up and it's still working. Keeping my fingers crossed.... I do hear a roar on the water heater But NEVER on the refrigerator. NOT once it is a small flame only 300-400 watt equivlent. YOu might need to clean the burner orifice.. But See if it gets cold.. I can hear my refrigerator making a small roar when I walk buy the outside access panel. In a really quiet camp spot I can sometimes barely discern it sitting inside the trailer. It's not a roar like the water heater, but it is a minute distinct roar.

RE: Another issue

Before you turn on the water heater open the access door and lift the lever on the pressure relief valve and make sure water comes out and keeps coming out if the pump is on or you are hooked up. If no water your winter bypass valves are in the wrong position.

RE: Windows license scam

If you're not in my phone book I never answer. If you're not in my phone book and don't leave a message I won't try to call you back. I strongly believe that blocking the offending number is a complete waste of time. They almost never use the same number twice.

RE: Installing Glowsteps as a one person DIY job (long post)

Thanks for the writeup it's very informative and well written. But an even bigger thanks is for the idea of the furniture dolly and scissors jacks. I recently struggled through a wobbly unsafe setup of my floor jack on top of blocks of wood to lower the rear tank on my Suburban to replace the fuel pump. In the end I had to have my neighbor help steady things while I attached hoses and wires and such. With your idea (which I already have all the parts to make) I could have more safely raised. lowered and tilted the tank. I think the only thing I would add to your setup would be to also bolt the scissors jacks to the bottom piece of wood so they can't tilt and fall sideways.

RE: Do you always need an RV Park ? .....

Short answer is no you do not need an RV park every night. Your class A is self contained.

RE: My water heater drain plug is metal, is that a problem?

what brand water heater? I believe all Atwoods use plastic with no anode and Suburban uses metal with an anode.

RE: Furion Glass Refrigerator shelves slide when traveling

I can think of three options. Can you put larger items in the back like the milk carton that can't fall through? That would block and keep everything else from falling through as well. Not free but try these to make a back wall on the shelves. Clamp them upside down on the back of the shelf and screw a piece of cheap 1/2 pine or even a cut off piece of clear plastic on the back. The idea is to put a back lip that runs across the shelf so even if it slides forward things can't slide off the back. Amazon A bit uglier, buy a sheet of insulating foam at Home Depot and cut to stand on end and fill the gap between the door and the shelf. Then put the foam sheet into the refrigerator and close the door when traveling.

RE: Water pump

Pump should not run. Check the water heater to see if the drain or pressure relief valve is seeping. Check the city water port to see if it's weeping. Heck check every fitting you can find in the water system and see if there is any water seeping out.

RE: Water Heater Question

Yes I've had that shower as well in the past. Now I'm always sure to open a hot water tap to relieve pressure before touching the plug.

RE: Wiring Short only under shore power

Does the fuse blow the minute you plug in to shore power? Does it matter if the light switch is on or off? Here's a couple things to think about or check. Get some extra fuses ready. On generator verify that the dinette light works. Turn off the dinette light and plug in shore power. Does the fuse blow? While still plugged in to shore power turn on the dinette light. Does the fuse blow now? Unplug shore power and turn off the dinette light. If there is a bulb in the dinette light remove the bulb. If the light is an LED you'll probably have to take it down and possible cut one of the wires. Plug in to shore power and see if the fuse blows. If you have a multimeter take a voltage reading from both sides of the fuse to ground. Does the voltage jump to 120v when plugged in to shore power (it should not jump)
