  1. But all that said, we need to have much, much better quality for the $100's of thousands that we pay for even an entry level Class A motorhome. The auto manufactures did it due to foreign competition. I guess we will have to wait for China and Japan to make Quality Motorhomes.
  2. Mapping/Navigation using Laptop w/Windows 10

    While Delorme has not had a 2016 upgrade, Street Atlas 2015 is still available. I sit in my easy chair at home and plan our whole trip including where we will stop for fuel and possible restaurants. The laptop sits well on the dash, plug in the GPS that comes with the software, and plug into the outlet just below the laptop that runs on the invertor. I need the invertor to be on anyway due to traveling with a residential refrigerator. Directions are at the bottom of the screen in 1/2 inch high letters. When it states that I have 130 miles to the next turn, I don't worry about what is next for about 2 hours. There is a learning curve as there is with any new system.
  3. Carpet Replacement

    Mine were 16x16, but I think it comes in 12x12, also. I was planning on laying on the diagonal, but found I would have used about 20% more due to waste. The pattern I used is a lot easier to lay because you can lay a chalk line the full length and work from that line to the outer edges. Any imperfections that you may have will be harder to detect. Also, this is just one of 6 or 8 colors available. I am sure that there are other sites where the product is available, but you can contact Habegger Flooring, 260-724-2180, 1337 Village Green Drive, Decatur, IN 46733, or stop in and see them. Nice people.
  4. Carpet Replacement

    I was asked to post pictures our Villa Stone flooring. Floor 1 is at the driver seat where I cut the edge off two commercial hard rubber stair treads to make a surface that wasn't slick below my feet. The treads were installed with contact cement because the floor at this location is a steel plate. The color shift between Floor 1 and 2&3 is due to change in sunlight. Floor 1 is the closest to the true color. Floor 2 & 3 are of the rest of the floor. No tile was installed on the slide out or in the bedroom. Floor 4 just shows my installation of s Samsung RF197 residential refrigerator. I don't know how to rotate Floor 2,3,&4.
  5. Water Pump

    If both valves are open on the inside shower or outside sprayer but the hand valve is closed on the head, the water will circulate on some systems causing the pump to recirculate, too.

    The quality and support of Jayco is very good.
  7. Golf Cart

    We have had a Cricket 24 volt for about 6 or 7 years. Ours was the first Resort Model that Rick's sold. It has a hard top which is not available anymore. We carry it in our Chevrolet Equinox. I will fit in a late model Chevrolet HHR, also. We use to carry it in a Pontiac Vibe. You have to remove some parts, collapse the length (it telescopes) and run it up ramps into the auto. The motor is the brake; therefore, you don't need to tie it down. I did replace batteries last year because the power cord became unplugged over the winter. The batteries were almost zero volts. They did recharge, but didn't want to trust it. The charger has a separate charge circuit for each battery, and you can leave it on charge all the time. The charger will charge to full and keep it topped off as needed. The difference between my 24 volt and the new 36 volt is about 10 to 12 % increase in speed. My top speed is 8 mph.

  14. Carpet Replacement

    We have a 2006 Fleetwood Expedition. I have replaced the carpet with a marble dust and resin flooring product called Villa Stone 4 years ago. The product was suggested by Habbagar Flooring in Decatur, Indiana. They do the custom floors for Fleetwood where ceramic tile is not used. This product is installed with outdoor carpet adhesive and grouted with a resin based grout. Basically the installation is just like installing ceramic tile, but when done, the floor looks like ceramic time and weighs less than the carpet and pad that you take out. It is about 1/8 inch thick. Problems that you may find: 1. Hundreds of staples that must be removed. 2. Fleetwood used a pin to hold the plywood floor to the frame. When the carpet and pad are removed, I had 5 of those I had to cut off with a grinding wheel, counter bored the floor, put in large fender washers and bolted down the floor. Filled around the head with floor leveling patch available at big box stores then laid the new floor. Altogether, it took me two weeks. I did not tile the slide out. Total cost was about $750.00. We have been very satisfied. I would do it again.

    Your favorites should still be there. There is an option to get them back, but I did it about 8 months ago and do not remember the steps. Google the problem and there should be an answer out there.
