    Andersen Weight Distributing Hitch Question/Opinion

    I am considering an Andersen weight distributing hitch to use with a new travel trailer that I am purchasing. It looks like a simple hitch and is much lighter than the hitch I am currently using. If you have experience with the Andersen WDH, I would greatly appreciate your opinion. Do you...

    Replacing and Relocating Main TV in Motor Home

    To replace the original TV in the living room area of my motor home I came up with the idea of relocating the TV and installing a larger TV than could be installed in the original TV location.  The wall separating the living area and bathroom had a large mirror and I thought that would be a good...

    Converter Questions

    My coach is connected to shore power, the coach batteries are completely dead and there is no power to the 12 volt system (e.g., lights don't work).  If I start the engine, there is power to the 12 volt system and all 12 volt lights work. I assume that the problem is with the converter (IOTA...

    Problem with Solenoid for Slides

    A while back our slides started working intermittently and I discovered that the solenoid that prevents the slides from extending while the engine is running was defective.  The solenoid would get very hot while driving and would not work until it cooled.  This is a "normally closed" solenoid...

    Slide Out Electrical Problem

    I am experiencing a problem with my slides.  On a recent trip we had a couple of occasions where the slides would not open when setting up in a campground.  Nothing at all happened with either slide (no sounds, no movement).  I checked the 12 volt electrical panel to see if anything was...

    Bathroom Fan Upgrade - Review

    I was considering replacing my small noisy bathroom fan and vent with a Fantastic Fan, but after seeing a review of the Heng's Vortex Fan Upgrade Kit (http://www.rvupgradestore.com/Vortex-Fan-Upgrade-Kit-p/31-5010.htm), I decided to try the cheaper upgrade.  It took less than an hour to install...

    Leveling Blocks and Jack Pads

    Although I have leveling jacks, I have encountered a couple of places where I needed to use blocks under the tires to keep them from hanging without support.  I have some 2x10 boards that I have been using.  My first questions for those of you with a lot of experience is, how many blocks do...

    Need a cheap new toad?

    Are you looking for a new toad?  Take a look at some of the Pontiacs.  Pontiac is a dead brand, but is backed by a GM (Government Motors) warranty.  For some of the cars they have rebates up to $3,500. Today I picked up a new Pontiac G5.  I did not buy it with the intention of using it as a...

    Motor Home Will Not Start - Any Advice?

    We returned home today from a 10-day camping trip.  The drive was about 7 hours and everything worked well during the drive.  When we arrived at home I parked the motor home in the driveway.  When I went to move it a few minutes later, it would not start.  It will not do anything.  When I turn...

    New (to me) MH Purchased

    After looking for several months we finally upgraded to a newer motor home.  Last week we traded our 1998 Class C for a 2005 Allegro 32BA (Workhorse W22 chassis).  Our primary reason for upgrading at this time is the depressed market made the prices very attractive. Thank you to several forum...

    Would you purchase a National RV?

    I am looking at a 2006 National Surf Side 32'.  The price is lower than other similarly equipped models.  Does anyone have any concerns about buying a National RV since the company no longer exists?  I read a thread on this forum from last January and the consensus seemed to be that there was...
