    A/C Short Cycling

    We recently bought a used 2019 trailer, with Dometic air and a single zone Dometic thermostat. On "auto", during the day, it seems to do okay, but of a night the fan and compressor comes on runs a couple minutes, then shuts off. Couple mins later it will kick on again, only to repeat the...

    Rear Electric Stabalizer Jack Dead

    So I hit the button on the rear jacks this morning and all was well as it has been. 4 hrs later when we arrived it wouldn't work. I've verified power to the switch and power going to the jack motor. I'm assuming that it's in the motor at this point, but find it odd that it happened without any...

    Can anyone give me any information/source on a replacement center cap for a 16" 8 lug aluminum rim, this is off a 2013 Bighorn. I'm so mad I could bite nails, as the tire shop that replaced my tires, crushed the existing ones.

    Electrical Problem

    Out of the blue our TV in the coach wouldn't raise or lower, and the LED lights above stopped working. A little troubleshooting later, I discovered that I had power, but a weak ground. Ran a jumper ground to the switch to get the TV up and down, and in doing so, also makes the LED lights above...

    Horizontal Slide Adjustment Lippert Hydraulic

    The kitchen slide out with Refrigerator needs to slide back in the opening. Followed the directions which were simple enough till I got to the part about moving the slide. Directions said to carefully "pry" the slide in the right direction. That may work on some but apparently not when you have...

    As near as I can tell we have a BAL Accu Slide, cable operated in our bedroom. Every so often it's been a little more noisy than usual, but yesterday after setting winterized for about 3 weeks, I put the bedroom slide out and it sounded like a giant grinder.

    Why You Always Need To Be Alert!!!!!!!!!

    A couple that we are friends with in another camping group, came in on Saturday from a trip. They park their trailer at the woman's father's house, in a tight spot. I'm not quite sure the reason for Dad backing in the trailer, but he was. The woman was at the back of the trailer guiding her...

    Seniors In Church

    Prayers Please

    Not sure this is the right section, if not hopefully the moderators will move it to the appropriate section. Some of our closer Heartland friends were aware that the better half of the JanAndBill duo (Janet) was diagnosed with Multiple Myeloma (an incurable cancer of the blood) in 2009. Though...

    Atlanta Campgrounds????

    Looks like we may have to be in Atlanta (Emory Hospital, NE of downtown) for close to a month. The choices of places to stay obviously is limited. We've stayed at Marietta RV Resort previously and not a fan of the park. There's one on the east side called Stone Mountain Heights, that appears to...

    How A Real Truck Driver Does It

    On the news from Australia, karma apparently evens the books sometimes. Seems there were some fellas in need of fuel, and there was an unattended tour bus, ripe for the picking. By the moonlight they snuck up on the bus and inserted their siphon hose into the tank. Had the thieves had better...

    Anyone have a solution besides vacuuming for another irritating pest - the Asian Beetle? We have been fighting and ongoing battle with these things for over a year. We tried sprays, sticky traps, etc. Nothing seems to stop them. Every time the the temperature goes up, they come out.

    Another Soaked In Fuel Day

    Love my Ford, but why anyone in their right mind would put a fuel filter under the truck and inside the fuel rail is beyond me. To make matters even worse, they mounted it horizontal instead of vertical, so every little dribble can run down your arm, while laying on your back in the accumulated...

    Repair, Adjustment and Maintenance of Tank Valves.

    I've seen a lot posts of late regarding leaking or hard to operate tank valves. The most common solution is add another valve at the cap. While this can be a good temporary solution, some of them I've seen are a problem waiting to happen. Our roads are littered with all kinds of debris making...
