  1. My chassis going to have it's annual there this Nov 22
  2. I wouldn't of taken a even class C under that bridge. You know it has to be off the main road.
  3. The even brake works fine but can be a little finicky. It must have a good 12 volt power supply or it will give out false errors. I used a extension cord to get 12 power from the back of our SRX and had to get a 14 gage heavy duty cord that will work. Also if you have adjustable brake pedal make sure it is all the way up. Make sure the seat is adjusted so you can place your fingers between the front of the seat and the rear bar of the even brake. If these don't solve your problem give Roadmaster a call.
  4. The rear toilet is a Tecma macerator with pump. DW found there can be too much TP used in it.
  5. Yes, wrong color and smell. When I first saw it I was WTH???
  6. I wouldn't touch that problem until I got the rig home. Very stinky to say the least. I don't know any plumbers that eat their lunch while working . I didn't mention it at lunch because I wouldn't be able to eat just because. It was nice meeting with you and wild Bill.
  7. When I saw Robin Williams in the movie RV I thought no way that could happen.
  8. This is a update of the clogged toilet line I posted from Spearfish, SD. The rear toilet began flushing through the roof vent and down the driver side of the coach instead of the black tank. After flushing the black tank and thinking all is well and cleaning up the coach then wife flushes the rear toilet. What a mess so I call a mobile mechanic. In the meantime I call Entegra CS and ask the representative what to do. He told me that it has to be snaked from the roof through the vent to the tank. When the RV mechanic arrive he wasn't having any of that. He told me he wasn't a plumber to go into the pipes. He told me that he can only plug off the 1 ½ vent to plunge and flush the clog out. It didn't work and I only had to pay a service charge. Since RV tech don't work on plumbing I called several plumbers and guess what plumbers don't work on RV. That pretty much had me stuck with on figuring out how to unplug it myself. I called Entegra CS the next day and got them to email me the diagram of the drain plumbing for the rear toilet. It basically looked like a upside down T with the vent running between the bathroom and bedroom with about a six foot pipe coming from the toilet. Also had a longer pipe that goes to the black tank. Because of the clog these pipes was full to the roof line with sewage. There was no taking the toilet out to clean because all of that nasty would end up in the bathroom. With the rear toilet off limits we went ahead to Gillette, WY FMCA rally. I will tackle the problem when we get home. The first thing I found is the snakes I had was too short. I would need a 25 footer minimum to get the job done. I picked up a hand crank ¼ x 25 snake at ACE hardware. With it I able to pull a little TP out of the clog 20 feet out but not able to break it loose. After much trying the cable started to kink so I had to quit as it wasn't going any further. Again I went to ACE hardware and picked up a bottle of rid-x made to desolve TP. I had to wait 24 hours for it to work after adding it. At least I get to install the bling I got at Gillette. The next day I tried plunging the clog from the roof followed with 20 feet of snake. No joy so I have to try something different. I then went to Harbor Freight and picked up a electric hand held snake. The cable was a little stronger and with a bigger corkscrew on the end. It was made for 1 to 2 inch pipe. I tried it a few times and pulled plugs of TP out a few times and pushed the clog until I ran out of cable. At this point I was getting frustrated. The last thing I tried had a big risk involved. The pipes was full of sewage to the roof. The toilet had to have a check valve to prevent back flow. I already tried to plunge the pipes from the roof. I had a bladder that gets hooked on the end of a garden hose and water pressure should push the clog the rest of the way. It works from 1 ½ to 3 inch pipes. The bladder expands inside the pipe to hold it in place as water put pressure against the clog. The question was if the check valve was strong enough? I decided to test it first. I set it up and turn the water for 10 seconds. That did nothing but at least no water came into the toilet except a little that was in there before. Then next time I decided to do it for 20 seconds and right before the time was up I hear a whoosh sound from the rear bathroom. I quickly turned the water off and ran inside. I expected to see the the rear bath flooded and was surprise to find no water anywhere including inside the toilet. I check the black tank level and found it went from 0 to 11 percent. I filled the toilet near the top and gave it a complete flush and it all water went out to the black tank. The tank level went from 11 to 18 percent. No damage done. In summery, the rear toilet flushes down a long 1 ½ inch black PVC pipe. It can't handle very much TP at once or it will clog.
  9. We are here at C41 parking. Oops sorry It's lot M 37th Street then C-41. 😂
  10. Lab, it's a blood test.
  11. We have one in ours on a slide tray. Last time out we use it as a wine cooler..
  12. Anybody who drive a class A above 75 MPH is crazy.
  13. You should have both a electric (sealevel) and manual sight gauge where the tank is located. My tank is located in front of right rear wheel. It's your dealer fault for not showing you all the operation of your new coach. On Monday morning you can contact Joyce Skinner @ 1-800-517-9137 or e-mail joyce_skinner@jayco.com She is the Director of Customer Experience of Entegra and Jayco. She will know who can help you.

  15. Get a RV inspector to check the whole thing out before buying. Be armed with information.

  17. Did you or your mechanic find a replacement reservoir? If not remove the broken flange to measure that and and then measure require length. Then do google search with the manufacture of your pump motor assembly.
  18. Your picture shows a horizonal one and his appears like long vertical one with cap on top like on my 2 post lifts. They have ones that bolt on and that may how it his may what he had. Thinking of the design and looking at the picture again hitting bumps on the road with about a gallon of fluid it would have a tendency to rock back and forth and crack even if bolted with what appears is 4 bolts holding it on. The crack spread until it fell completely off. Looks like the part that is left is wet with fluid and splashed surrounding area. https://www.carliftparts.com/lift-and-hoist-parts/oil-tank-reservoir-for-spx-power-units-5141ac/?network=g&device=c&keyword=&campaign=1740001091&adgroup=pla-301428449958
  19. With that style pump and motor, the fluid reservoir looks like it could of very well slipped off if there was just a band holding it on.
  20. I know it can be a great expense, but I would never do it. Unless you have measured the circumference of both tires and they are the same, you might have problems. A smaller tire turns faster at a certain speed than a larger one would. So there would be a lot of friction on the weaker of the two. Also the taller tire will be carrying more of the weight and getting hotter. Hot tires can catch fire and burn up wheel bearing, burn the vehicle, or fly apart causing more damage. If you have to buy two tire, it should be mounted on the front, and two of the same size front tires should be moved or remounted to the duals providing they are same circumference. (my opinion)
  21. Sorry to butt in but you said 2 then 2 then 2 over a three year period. The problem with that is the dual rear axle will have mixed wear tires. I seen first hand what happens when not all tires on dual axle are not changed all the same time. How are you going to be sure that the tires wear even if you only replace 2 on rear axle?
