General Discussion / Skylight shade
« on: January 30, 2023, 12:39:32 pm »
DW saw an ad for duo form thermo shield rv skylight shade. A bit on the pricey side, but if they work as advertised, might just be worth it. Anyone have any experience with them? Pros, cons and general knowledge is appreciated.

How many of you use a water pressure regulator when connected to city water? Are they really of value? I mean are they worthwhile? Necessary? Or are they basically a safety recaution?
If so what do you use and why?

General Discussion / Liquid Spring maintenance
« on: October 10, 2022, 12:02:50 pm »
Do you have Liquid Springs on your Cruiser? If so, what's your maintenance schedule like? We have over 2 years on our coach & slightly over 15,000 miles. The manual says every 6 months or 25,000 miles. So where do we fall? Another section says to tighten bolts to 600lbs torque. (yeah right, I carry a torque wrench with me).
Thinking about making an appointment for a go over the system, just to be save, as we are heading to the mother ship and Lafayette would be on our way.
Any opinions, thoughts, concerns?

Thanks keelhauler. I think that's the one. Especially with arthritis setting in.
Really appreciate it.

General Discussion / RV Water Hose

Time to replace our old Camco white water supply hose. I have been looking at one of these Silver Bullet type of expandable hoses. Which one I don't know. I know it has to be drinking water safe. Anything else I should be concerned about.
Any one use another type of hose? Which one & why?

Disconnecting house batteries: does the battery on/off switch by the coach door do the same thing? Or is a physical dismantle of the cables required?

mikeh, a little late to the party, but want to thank you for the clip info. We have a Garmin RV890 and am looking for an efficient way to mount it up & out of the way. My only question is, how difficult is it to remove the GPS for programming, etc. Does the magnet hold it or a catch of some kind?

General Discussion / AGM batteries & solar battery tender
« on: September 11, 2022, 11:30:03 am »
Thinking about switching over to AGM batteries & know nothing about what I should know & do. I tried to do online research but have a hard time distinguishing between a sales pitch & an honest review/opinion as I know nothing about the subject.
I did find that one important point is to keep the batteries charged while in storage. As I generally put it in storage from Nov to April. Cannot keep on our property due to our beloved HOA, so it is offsite with no electric available. Which brings me to a solar battery tender. These are effective??? Spending this kind of money on batteries, don't want them going south the first year. Since our coach is offsite can I use a solar tender discretely with no holes drilled, etc. I'd like to place the solar panel in the cab windshield & run the cables to the batteries. Does this even sound feasible?
And I guess solar battery tenders, like the batteries themselves, vary in price from one end of the spectrum to the other. And the higher the price isn't always the better.
Oh, where to start? Then there is always the consideration of total cost and what I can afford. But naturally I want the best for the least cost.
Any thoughts?

General Discussion / 2022 Reunion
« on: September 09, 2022, 11:53:20 am »
Tried to post on RVillage, but found the site to be completely useless. Anyway if anyone is interested in a meet up we are leaving St. Louis the 16th with a night over at Alley Spring Recreation Area (COE park) site #601, then on to Wanderlust for the reunion. We plan to arrive a day early to help set up or what ever.

We are hoping to have some other work done and wanting to make it a one stop thing. Do our repairs and add ons and have the maintenance done in one fell swoop. And yes, Liquid Spring has a dealer a lot closer to us than Elkhart.

General Discussion / Mothership & maintenance
« on: June 17, 2022, 03:50:53 pm »
For maintenance on your rig, including liquid springs, HWI Levelers, generator, everything else, have you had the mothership do this or where do you go for what? We'd like to schedule an appointment, have it all done, plus a few other things that need Doug's touch.I understand they are booked till Dec, but I can wait to have it all done right, so its ready for next season.
Your thoughts?
