    Sailun Tire Recall

    I was able to get four replacement tires installed today. Mine were the 3820 code. I feel fortunate to be able to find a tire dealership able to find the replacement Sailums.

    Follow up to inform that Anderson has sent me a replacement valve to replace the broken valve. My plan is to give this new valve a turn when I check out my rig while it is storage. Thanks for the replies to this post. Dumboldles

    Anderson brass valve froze up

    May need to replace the whole valve system unless you can get it unstuck. Seems to be a design flaw that, I’m sure, we are going to see many others in the future with the same problem. Dumboldles

    Anderson brass valve froze up

    Thanks for the replies. I’ll take care of this issue after we make it back to home base. I have informed Anderson about the issue. From now on I’ll make it part of checking on my rig to give the handle a turn. Here’s a photo of my system that hopefully gets us through our trip.

    Anderson brass valve froze up

    I should have mentioned on my earlier post that it was an all brass unit that froze. I replaced the original plastic valve with the brass about a year one/half ago.

    Jim’s RV, Santa Clara Utah

    I had an excellent experience with Jim’s RV in Santa Clara, Utah. Had them repack the axils and actually had somebody figure out and fix my jack system that did the stop start routine when extending or retracting. While the wheels were off I rushed the tires over to a tire installer changed the...

    Let's visit this again...Lippert 6 point leveling issue

    Jerrod, went out and looked at the solenoid, I could see a screw on the top with a wire connected, assuming this is the connection point. I admit when it comes to mechanics this guy is pathetic, thanks for the information. Les

    Hi folks, I also have this problem; I just changed out the breakers on the fuss bar with 50 amp breakers...made the mistake of telling my wife the start and stop problems were fixed. She obviously commended in a snarky way stating “thought you fixed it”. Anyway I have followed this...

    Winterizing complication

    I’m following up on my earlier post: decided to change out both the Sureflo 4008 and the Anderson valve. I was getting pressure built up coming out the place where you put the hose, this made me think it may be a check valve issue (I am far from being very knowledgeable on RV pumps) so picked a...

    Re: self install or Dealer I had the dealer do mine, at the time they had a very competent tech that knew what he was doing. I have done some minor repairs and upgrades to my unit but do not consider myself competent on the complicated stuff.
