    Jensen JWM9A Power Cycling

    I have a 2017 Bighorn 3160 with the Jensen JWM9A media center. It works great, except when the coach battery reaches 12.7 volts the radio power cycles every 2seconds. I have a 0.7 volt drop from the battery to the radio, which means the radio acts up at 12.0 volts. The specs on that unit say it...

    king pin tripod or landing gear stabilizers

    I have the Steadyfast system on my Greystone. Easy to install, and took out 90% of the shaking. I would highly recommend it for the money. Al

    Oops - I put DEF in fuel tank!

    This looks like a pretty good option for the RAM plastic fuel cap. It would also help prevent putting DEF in the fuel tank. They must have a Chevy version also...

    Watch The Diesel Pumps

    Re: AZ Members Chat Room BP in the Upper Midwest uses green handles for gas. That is why I never go to a BP station, I'm afraid I might "gas" up my truck in a forgetful moment. Al

    Good (or bad) repair shops in western washington?

    We had to have an emergency roof repair this summer. Brazels in Centralia Washington was recommended. They are just South of Olympia, I believe you will have to go very near there. They have an RV park on site for customers, free if repair is over $500. We just left the trailer for them to work...

    Another TowMax victim reporting in....

    I changed my Blowmax with Michelin Ribs, and tow with much more peace of mind. I use the TST TPMS, and found the Ribs to tow much cooler. Next time I will replace wth the same Ribs, but go to the 245/75 to get more clearance between tires. I am about 1 1/2 inches between tires which is within...

    Not feeling great about dropping my camper off at CW of Tampa

    We tried to have some work done in the Boise and Spokane CW's this summer. I ended up leaving because of the service attitude. On the other hand the CW near Minneapolis is top notch and I've used their service quite a bit. Al

    Cargo Door Supports

    This is the second branch to this thread, but I went with Velcro. I have three sections to my basement wall, used Velcro on each. Works great, I can take the whole basement down or put it back up in seconds. Al

    Vinyl Trim Insert

    Almost all of the vinyl trim insert has failed on my Greystone. It cracked in the middle and was flopping in the breeze. I am going to replace all of it with new. I have what is probably a dumb question. Should I leave the ends open, or put a dab of caulk in the ends? Part of me says the...

    Flooded Bathroom - moulding swoolen

    We've been worried about this also. After flushing we give the pedal a little lift with a foot to be sure the ball valve closes and watch to be sure that the water flow stops. Al

    Why wouldn't you balance trailer tires???

    When I replaced my Towmax tires with Michelin Ribs National Tire and Battery included balancing as part of the standard deal. I made sure they balanced them with the TPMS sensors installed. I noticed a big difference in ride. Later added the EquaFlex with Never Fail bushings (my stock nylon...

    We're retiring!

    Linda and I are finally retiring June 4 and 6! We have had our Greystone 29MK for two summers now, and have had great fun with it. But we found that work was getting in the way of our fun. So we each put in our notice a few months ago, and the great day is approaching. For our first trip we...

    Whole Coach Water Filtration

    John, I like your manifold setup, but one question. I assume you use this setup at a campsite with fresh water for the backflush, and if at a dump station you disconnect that hose and run direct to the dump hose bib? Al

    Winterization access.

    I have a 2011 Greystone and it's a long reach to the WH from the basement. It is close to the cabinet under the TV. I unscrewed the lower panel in the cabinet under the TV, put on 2 strips of Velcro and two knobs. Now when I winterize its just a matter of pulling the interior panel and the WH...

    Titan Fuel Tank Users

    Looked everywhere for small leak behind UDC, can't find it?

    Is it possible that the pressure relief valve could be leaking? If the high limit switch trips a little high and the pressure valve opens letting some water out, you could get what looks like a small leak. Or, maybe the pressure relief valve is just a bit weak or you've lost the air pocket at...

    ATF: Bighorn - Frame Question

    I checked for frame flex by taping a string from the top of the front cap to the front of the pin box when unhooked. Then I hooked up and watched to see if the string went slack. It was just the tiniest bit looser which I thought was good. Is this a valid way to check for flex? It sure was...

    Firestone Air Compressor

    I have the wireless compressor and it is great. However, the compressor is low volume and I'm not sure the duty cycle would be enough to air up a tire without burning it up. I run the airbags at 35 when towing, not sure if they can get up to 80 pounds. Would take forever with that little...

    Oil change..for the very last time!

    I bought a package of 4 oil changes for $189.95 from the Dodge dealer for my RAM. It is good at any Dodge dealer in the country when we are traveling. They told me it is a Chrysler program. Al
