About mable

  1. I have a 2002 Pace Arrow that I bought used about 10 years and live in the western suburbs of Chicago. I store the RV in an outdoor storage lot and this year I started thinking about raising the coach on its jacks to take the weight off the tires in sub-zero weather and if I would/should do that , what should I spray on the jack cylinder?
  2. With all the bad news lately, I though that I would share some of my own and give you all something to laugh at. Yesterday I brought my 2002 Pace Arrow to my house from storage to clean and replace the fresh water. I hooked up the hose, turned the water on and starting cleaning and moving things into the house. While inside I got a cup of coffee and relaxed for a minute and then went back outside to find water coming out from under the RV. I thought it was coming from the overflow and thought "wow" that was fast. WRONG...I had hooked up the hose to the Blackwater spray washer and it filled and backed up and overflowed the toilet. Lots of screaming and cussing and now lots of cleaning and scrubbing.
  3. Norcold Refrigerator

    About four years ago I had the same problem refrigerator would not get cold,freezer was fine. It was determined that the door seals were bad. The problem is that you can't replace just the seals, you have to replace the entire door which was very expensive. I was still covered on an extended warranty and for about $700.00 I replaced the entire unit.

  6. Mail Forwarding

    Hi all and a Happy New Year. We are getting ready to leave the Chicago area soon and head down to Florida for about six weeks. Can anyone give me any input on using a Co. called 'Dakotapost' for mail forwarding. Any comments or other recommendations would be appreciated. Thanks
  7. Thanks for the replies.I have been with USAA since 1966 and very satisfied. I have a 2002 Pace Arrow with USAA along with 3 vehicles and roadside assistance. Never gave it a second thought until I started readind about all the conflicts that people have with the other co's. I called USAA about roadside assistance and they said not to worry...I won't. Thanks all
  8. Hi, I can't find any old comments so I'll ask: Does anyone have any experience with the roadside assistance provided by USAA? Thanks. Bob
  9. Camping In Southern California

    If you happen to be retired military, there are two locations in Los Alamitos and Seal Beach. Right next to Long Beach and great for getting around the LA area.
  10. Ditto on replacing entire fuel line to gen from tank. Had the same problem on my Onan on a 2002 Pace Arrow. It was a dry rotted fuel line near the gas tank. Dropped the tank, replaced line and problem fixed.
  11. Recommendations of Military RV Sites

    Welcome...go to 'US Military Campgrounds and RV parks'. It is a great reference point.
  12. Extended Warranty

    I purchased a 2002 Pace Arrow three years ago from Camping World and at the time purchased a 4yr/48,000 extended warranty thru them. Absolutely no problems wth it at all, regardless of who does the work. I believe it is now the same as GoodSam as they have merged.

    Rich, thanks again for your quick reply. actually, after Camping World rewired the breakers properly, they both run fine with the engine running. That problem (the a/c) shutting down when I started the engine only started after they fixed the gas line. She is fine now. I just had a hard time trying to figure out why and you were the only person with the answer. Thank You. Bob
