We use a 5 page double column check list. Some of the stuff stays in the MH between trips. Really beats getting on the road only to find you forgot something.

You probably have a standard E-450 Van. There are hundreds of thousands of these Ford Vans around the country. If someone is telling you they can't find the part, run from them as fast as you can!

If perhaps it is a chevy van, there are fewer, but still thousands around.

There is no plumbing for the black water tank. The toilet mounts on the floor inside the RV and drops straight into the tank. There is a pipe or hole which should be obvious which comes out of lower side of the tank and goes to your dump valve. Here is a link to pics of the gray & black water ta...

"Low Water" in the battery, I believe, means that the plates are exposed to the air, not that the water is lower than normal. As long as the plates were not exposed when you looked to see how much water was in the batteries that should not have been the cause. If the previous owner left the coach un...

I learned something new today, apparently Winegard makes a satellite dish (Roadtrip MinMax) which has switches which can be set for Diretct TV, Dish, or Bell satellite TV service. Interesting. It would appear that if you have Dish or Direct TV at home you could pick up your receiver/DVR and put it i...

What Winegard Satellite Dish does BF install on the new BF's? Looking at the BF website, it just lists a Wingard Stationary Satellite, but doesn't specify which model.

I wonder if the OP has a manual aiming dish on the roof which I guess could be aimed an any satellite. You will still need a receiver and pay for the service from the satellite TV provider. The experience I have had with Satellite TV is the dishes which are mfg for either Dish or Direct TV and will ...

Our 2014 BF is equipped with a Winegard satellite antenna. With no previous experience obtaining satellite coverage/usage, any suggestions most appreciated.

Which Winegard satellite dish, and is it Direct TV or Dish? To the best of my knowledge they are all manufactured for either Direct or Dish.

Oliver, The link you are showing above is going to the Direct Spark Igniter to lite the propane, not the 120V heater element. I found a manual online and it shows the p/n of the heater element is: 520789. Amazon.com has one http://www.amazon.com/Suburban-520789-1440W-Electric-Element/product-reviews...

We have only had Coach Net for road side service and IF you tell them you have an unmounted spare they will send someone that will change the tire and mount the spare on the wheel. However, you have to pay for the labor to install the unmounted spare. The trip charge is covered though. One down side...

I would go to the gen set mfg website and check for their authorized repair places and see what they would charge to clean or replace the carburetor. $800 seems really high to me. Or buy a new or rebuilt carburetor and get a mechanic to replace it. It shouldn't take more than an hour labor to replac...

I have seen ramps like that for RV'ers with dogs that have bad hips and can't climb up and down the steps.

When we had an RV w/slides we always parked where we could put the slide out over the grass. Other than that we kept a low profile, no lawn chairs, awnings, etc.
