  1. Air Bags Replacement

    Sorry, that was on my 2008. It really got slimed up, and I have my MH's serviced once a year. Also, under warranty, was the dash air gauges. Freightliner had a problem with the fitting on the gauges where the air line connected. They replaced my air gauges. I noticed it because in a short while the pressure reading dropped more than it should after shutting down. Also, rabbit ears that can hear anything - Earlene, heard a slight hissing sound that my deaf ears can't hear. Brett lived just a little ways from my storage unit and he dropped by and found that the leak was under the dash. Ergo, replacement. Thanks again Brett.
  2. Safe-T-Plus

    Glad there is a Safe-T-Plus thread. During the storm Harvey my MH was flooded. I called Safe-T-Plus and they asked me to send it back to them (I had removed the piston) and they would check it out under warranty. I'm not going to go into details but let me express my gratitude for Safe-T-Plus and their exceptional service. Kathy and Kelsey are so customer service oriented and helpful. It has been a pleasure doing business with Safe-T-Plus. If anyone is in the market for a steering stabilizer I can strongly recommend Safe-T-Plus as the company to do business with. I have no affiliation with Safe-T-Plus other than being a satisfied customer. p.s., on my previous MH and for a short period of Safe-T-Plus being installed I noticed a significant difference in the handling characteristics.
  3. Air Bags Replacement

    If the system has a leak in it, e.g., air bag, the air pump will continue to run keeping the system as inflated as it can keep up. If the leak is substantial you should notice it on the air gauges. Instead of 125 psi you may only be showing 100 psi or 90 psi all the time. If it gets below 70psi it's time to pull over and get it fixed as you are close to having your brakes lock up. Walking around with a good ear may detect a general area of the leak, then a spray bottle with soapy water may show where the leak is when sprayed in the area. I had a relief valve on the air drier stick open and my AP dropped to around 70 psi. I did pull over, found out what it was and called Freightliner. They are the ones that warned of below 70 psi. I know 65 is the typical cut of but to err on the side of precaution is better.
  4. 2011 American Coach Eagle: HDMI Routing

    I used this system in my house between rooms. No reason why it will not work in an RV. What ever the transmitter is hooked to is what the receiver will see so both TV's will have he same TV station playing. ActoinTec Wireless HD Transmitter and it did transmit HD if that is what was on the front TV.
  5. Register Your Tires

    Actually the tires are filled with smoke. Trust me on this. If you see the smoke escaping the tire will have to be sent back to China to get the smoke repacked into it. Smoke is gray or black, take your pick. Never let the smoke escape from anything mechanical or electrical. It will be on a slow boat to be fixed....er repacked.

    Wow, just did the direct to "community.fmca.com" and it loaded in about 3 seconds. Considerable difference than going to the home page. From there I just click on unread threads. I might even use Bretts link.

    Herman, All my friends live in the computer and they eat all the cookies. I don't bookmark FMCA as it is just as easy for me to type fm in the url line and my last connection is established, however it is to the FMCA home page and from there I go to the forum. Hmmm! Need to try going directly to see what happens. BRB.
  9. Hazardous /Propane and RVs

    I'm with Carl on routes South of Conn. I run around all that and on up to I-84 and take the Newburgh Beacon Bridge. Much more sane taking I-84. If the sign says 13' 6" I'm alright with it as that is the "clearance," but then one has to worry about any road repairs and addition hot patch just before or after the bridge/tunnel. Some hot patch repairs can raise the road an inch or more. In the old coach I was only 12' 4" but the new one is 12' 11". Need to pay attention to the signs.

    Once I'm on the site the pages open just like any other site. it is the initial joining to the site that is extremely slow in comparison to other sites. I'm on a fixed system, and here are my stats. Ping: 17ms Download speed: 237.37 Mbps Upload Speed: 11.16 Mbps Those figures are far higher than any cellular, satellite, or other connectivity speeds and I'm still slow at initiating contact with FMCA Web Site. In many instances, but not all, the site load time is determined by the amount of ads and other tracking data taking place. (I said, not all.)

    Carl, Are you using Safari, Firefox, Chrome or what browser. Knowing that I can tell you where to go. (I like that.)

  15. Bedroom TV Upgrade

    Joe, Also when purchasing a new replacement the speaker placement is important. Anything that is permanently mounted the speaker should be facing the outside. Most of the new TVs have the speakers either on the side or on the bottom, and both are behind the frame. with a pull out mount there is no problem. In our situatoin I put in a full articulating TV mount. Another item that may be of concern is any peripheral equipment and how it is hooked up. Most of all the old TVs had RCA connectors (Red, White, Yellow) and the now-a-day have HDMI, Fiber, and COAX. Choose accordingly.
