  1. Fridge Fixer, works great.https://www.rvtechmag.com/tech/91_fridgefixer.php
  2. I agree, if you want a class c, try a private owner. I have observed on many occasions, these rental units being abused. I recall one time on a road near Destruction Bay on a trip to Alaska. The road was barely passable at 45 mph. A rental unit passed us going over 60 and I swear the back wheels came off the road a few times when the RV hit those big dips in the road.
  3. When we travel for an extended time, we use the Goodsam Service out of FL. They hold our mail sometimes for several weeks but will go over what we have anytime I call. If we need the mail, we will have it forwarded to our next destination based on our time in one spot. We have found that most campgrounds worth anything will allow you to have mail sent to their office. last year traveling through Alaska was a challenge but managed to get our mail several times. Like you we receive and pay most bills online. we have used General delivery at local post offices also.
  4. I would certainly pick flat towing over a dolly.
  5. If you’ve ever watched a tire shop change tires, you’ll probably notice that the tech just throws the valves and caps on a work station. If he uses the same ones is anyone’s guess. I have stainless steel caps in my vehicles , if I have the wheels rotated at a dealer, I remove the caps. Most times when I get the vehicle, back I find cheapy plastic valve caps on the wheels.

    air bags

    Air driers should be serviced every three years.
  7. From what I have read here, you have had the front end checked a few times and no one can find a problem. Has anyone checked the front tires and rims for runout or broken belts in the tires?
  8. I have a 2020 IPad and have no problems getting on this site. Make sure you don’t have the block all cookies tab checked. You might try a reboot of the iPad as well.
  9. Back in the early 90s, we’re on our way back to US from LaPaz, MX after running the Baja 1000, came over a small hill and found a class A sitting on the side of the road. The entire body was in a pile of broken wood etc along the road and just the chassis and two front seats were left. A couple of passerby were putting one of the occupants in the back of an open Jeep. We were in the middle of nowhere . On the same trip home we were stopped by the Mexican Army and all our cars and persons were searched. Kinda scary knowing you have absolutely no rights and these guys had loaded military automatic rifles.
  10. Not sure what fuses you are talking about but in the bay with the HWH pump there should be an in-line fuse for the solenoid/relay. Check there. It also could be the main relay in the bay. There are two of them, one energizes the system, and if it fails or sticks, nothing will work. do you have the manual for your HWH system, they are available at their website.
  11. We previously had a Phaeton with 380 HP, 1050 torque. It pulled a Jeep no problem, was not a rocket up hills but got it done. Our present bus is 450 HP and 1150 torque. It pulls a 4 dr Jeep rubicon that weighs in at about 4750 lbs. it pulls better than the previous Mh but still no rocket on steep inclines. This MH gets between 6.5 and 8.5 mpg depending on terrain. Both engines were Cummins .
  12. I Think if you look at the tail light wiring, the second set of wires on the DS, run over to the PS.

    Snow load

    The problem I see is with the slide toppers. The weight of the snow will certainly make them sag and eventually stretch. The only thing I can think of is to support the toppers and brush off the snow when you can. I’ve seen some folks put beach balls under the toppers. we got stuck in the snow last Thanksgiving , it was wet and about 3”. The toppers were sitting right on top of the slides.
  14. If you’re going to wait until March. A nice trip south would be getting onto 13 in Wilmington and follow it south. Lots of small towns, beaches, state campgrounds along the DELMARVA, then cross the bay bridge and again follow 13 to 17 along the coast. You’ll eventually end up in Myrtle Beach where there are several large campgrounds right on the beach as well as Murrells inlet. Great seafood in that area. Florida has nice state parks but reservations are a must along the coast. We’ve camped at Anastasia State Park and Gamble Rogers state park. Both have sites large enough for MHs. but traveling south in March might be to your advantage as snowbirds are headed the other way starting around that time. In Georgia you have the Okefenokee Swamp if you are adventurous. There’s a state park on the west side near Waycross where you can rent canoes etc to explore the swamp.
  15. That wire looks pretty clean. Did you just notice this? I found this. https://onan.xmsi.net/940-0125 Onan 6.3KW NHL (spec P) RV Genset Operator's manual (01-1983).pdf it looks like that wire does not go to remote start.
