  1. First RVs

    Sold the old motorhome a couple years ago and now have a travel trailer we bought new in 2016. Been an FMCA member about 5 years and will once again be checking in on the forums.
  2. Motorhome To Travel Trailer

    Our older Rexhall motorhome was crowded so we sold it and now own a Forrest River Bunk House Travel Trailer and the Grandkids love it.
  3. Water Pressure For Hot Water?

    I recently had the same problem. I removed the hot water on/off valve on the sink and found a small piece of plastic partially blocking the water flow. Removed the blockage and reinstalled valve. WaaLaa everything back to normal.
  4. Carefree Fiesta Awning Spring Repair

    Good information Jbrunson, may save others $295.00 in the future.
  5. Power Gear Leveling Problem

    Ditto.
  6. Fleetwood Storm 28F -Low Quality

    When I retired 5yrs ago we decided to look at motorhomes. Went to five different dealers in the Cincinnati/Dayton areas to look for a "good" one at a "cheap" price. We bought our one owner 1997 Rexhall Vision V-29 for less than 20G's with 34,000 miles on it and I must be honest we love it. Sure when we take a walk thru the campgrounds we are in awe of the big beautiful coaches all around us but we soon come back to earth and enjoy our Vision. I have put about 6g's in it (tow bar, supplemental brake, steering stabilizer, new brake lines etc) but everything works, even the dash air and we have towed the Jeep from KY to Virginia Beach via I-64 and travel from KY to N.C. yearly again over the mountains of W. VA. with no problem. Trips to Gatlinburg are also no problem. So it just goes to show there are some good buys out there if you're lucky. Oh and thanks to Rexhall using welds instead of bolts for the frame structure we have some squeaks but not as many as you would expect in an older motorhome.
  7. FMCA Placard Installation

    Ditto on the U bolts and aluminum bar from Home Depot for about $7.00 and it looks great.
  8. Over The Air TV

    We recently added the Wingman add on to our Batwing and now watch a lot more over the air TV. These two websites will come in handy on our future road trips. Thanks for the info.

  10. How Low Can You Go

    Thanks Rossboyer, I was planning on a 100w bulb in the water bay to keep the dump valves warm and my fresh water tank is under the bed in back room so that should be OK. A couple gallons of antifreeze in the black and gray tank should get me to Florida and back. Then I can use my new sewer solution and sewer branch I installed to empty the tanks for winterizing upon returning home.
  11. How Low Can You Go

    Thanks Herman, That is what I'm going to do.
  12. How Low Can You Go

    Hello TBUTLER I will be leaving from Northern KY. Yes I could use the rest stops as I have an old porta potti I could put in the shower stall. I guess another option would be to use RV anti freeze to flush the toilet with instead of water for a couple of days. Hoping some other members familiar with the way Rexhall heats the tanks will have some "experiences" they could share.

  14. How Low Can You Go

    I have a 1997 Rexhall Vision V29 and I'm considering going south for the month of January. My waste tanks are "heated" via the coach furnace but I'm wondering how safe it would be traveling in winter with waste water in the tanks? How safe are the dump valves as they are outside of the "heated" area? If any others have suggestions on how to travel safely in the winter I'd be interested in hearing from you. I've heard that putting a 100w light bulb in the dump valve compartment is a good idea? Thanks Bill.
  15. Rand McNally 7720 RV GPS Performance

    I've been using the RVND 7710 from RM for about 4 years and it has been a valuable companion. It started freezing up anytime the 12 adapter was plugged into the USB port. Running on the battery it still works great but of course the battery is only good for about 3 hours. The USB port seems to be the week point on the RVND 7710 and 7720. Now have a Garmin 2757 as a backup but it is a "car" unit not equipped with setpoints for height, weight, etc.
