Slow Refueling

Ken Freund Coach & Powertrain

May 20, 2015

  I have a 32-foot 1998 Bounder Class A and my problem is with refueling. Sometimes the coach will take fuel readily and at other times it only allows fuel to trickle in to the tank. I try to find stations with a slope where I can park with the front end down, which sometimes helps, but is not always... Read more »

Transmission Position While Towing

C&P-shifter

May 20, 2015

  I have just read that a 2010 Jeep Wrangler must be placed in park while being flat towed. I own a 2006 four-wheel-drive Jeep Liberty, and in the past, I have flat-towed it with the four-wheel transfer case in neutral and also the transmission in neutral. By doing this am I harming the transmission?... Read more »

TV Vibration

CP-TV

May 20, 2015

  We own a 2005 Phoenix Cruiser 2350 motorhome. It has a flat-screen TV that is mounted on a swivel arm located over the cab area, between the driver and passenger seats. When traveling, the TV vibrates and rattles; this gets worst at highway speeds. We have tried a number of ways to stop the vibration.... Read more »

  Winegard’s new automatic amplified broadcast dome looks like a mini satellite dish but brings in crystal-clear local HDTV signals   “Free TV” has a nice ring to it. The idea of receiving local programming via over-the-air broadcasting is appealing to those who prefer not to incur... Read more »

Oil-Filler Helper

QT-funnel

February 23, 2015

  Many owners of Class A motorhomes find it difficult to replace, or even add, a quart or two of oil during a trip. Engine platforms are generally built for trucks with hoods so the oil filler tubes are hard to access in many coaches. The oil filler tube in my 2011 Fleetwood Southwind is about 4... Read more »

Waste Not, Want Not

February 23, 2015

  After we return home from a trip and drain/clean the black- and gray-water tanks, I have a plan for the remaining fresh water. I added a couple of sections of PVC pipe to the drain and installed a hose fitting to the end. Then I hook up a garden hose and drain the remaining fresh water on my wife’s... Read more »

Spring at Last

  Preparing your coach for another travel season   After a long, hard winter, one of the things that signals spring for RV owners is the de-winterizing of the motorhome. Once you know that freezing weather is over, it’s time for the annual spring freshen-up to get ready for the fun and... Read more »

  How to remotely control 120-volt AC circuits, lights and appliances in a motorhome using Z-Wave technologies   One of the features of today’s custom homes and high-end bus conversions is automation, or the ability to control just about anything from one place, even when you’re not actually... Read more »

Motorhome Cab Heater Issue

February 19, 2015

  I have a 2011 Damon Astoria 40KT. The issue is the dash heater; it seems insufficient to provide adequate comfort heating when traveling down the highway. When I first took possession of the coach, I noticed this and my local service technician said the baffles were not completely open, so he... Read more »

  Installing new slide-topper fabric isn’t difficult, and costs just a fraction of a new hardware assembly   The humble slide-topper awning is the unsung hero of our RVing experiences. Just think of all the work they do: They keep the sun off the slideout roofs, which helps prevent UV damage,... Read more »
