dsfriday,

My 26RSB is a 2005, not the newer ones that much discussions were posted about mechanical vs electronic switches. Plus, the electricity from the generator never came back on, even though it runs.

Funny thing is, we almost never use the generator nor the AC...:O(

Ok, feeling stupid about this. I started up the generator today to make sure it works ok. It started right up and fridge and the micro works. I switched on the AC. After a bit of normal delay I heard the AC kick on. Almost immediately, I heard a click in the area of the fuse panel/converter and no 1...

I used to change my oil religioously at 3 months intervals. Then I was listening to the guys at Car Talk and they said that was silly. Oil doesn't go bad over time. I now use Mobil One for the engine and generator and strictly go by miles (hours for the genset)

Square head screws and drivers area called Robertsons, invented by a Canadian, I believe. They come in different sizes and are a lot less prone to stripping.

We had the factory ship us the three lapbelts. We had a local RV shop install them Work great!

Bill, this is exactly how I broke my valve. Now, when winterizing, I turn OFF the pump, go outside and push in the valve without any pressure in the lines. THEN have my wife or daughter turn on the pump, thereby allowing the antifreeze to flow up and thru the valve. Live and learn!

I broke my check valve winterizing the unit one year. I had the pump on and when outside to press on the check valve to allow the antifreeze to flow thru. I guess I pressed too hard and broke the valve. It is such a flimsy piece of plastic. Yes, I had to cut and pry off all the sealant from the insi...

I am usually pretty diligent in terms of battery maintenance. I check the water/acid levels two or three times each camping season. When the BF is not in use, the house batteries are disconnected via the kill switch and a Battery Tender is hooked up to them. In preparing for another winter's slumber...

Ours kept going off too. It would be worse when the weather was humid. I had the local shop go thru the motorhome and they could not find any leaks. Kim Olsen graciously sent me TWO replacements and they all performed exactly the same - many false alarms. I have one of those small hand held detector...

Very interesting! Carrying 'bents are always a challenge. How did you connect the bars to each other? It look like U bolts a the top section of the racks. I am guessing the bikes and the rack weigh less than 75 pounds. Do you need to subtract that from your hitch tongue weight?

I used one a few years back. It does have a feature to flush out your black tank. Basically, the jet that is used to 'pulverize' the solids can be turned inwards towards the tank. Not the best flushing system, however. Noticed that I said I used it, and no longer using it. The only advantage is that...

I believe some older models of CO detectors do in fact go bad. But you might want to double check your instruction manual. CO is nothing to ignore, as it is odorless and the symptoms sneak up on you. It would be well worth the money to buy a new one to double check, just in case. In the mean time, k...

FWIW, our 05 26RSB has the CE upgrade and the power awning. We purposefully chose the CE as we like cherry over oak. We also like the upgraded fixtures and countertops. We felt the CE is worth the money. The power awning came with the coach and after using it for 3 years, I'd say forget it. A manual...

Actually, specifically, it is a valve question. In trying to drain my fresh water tanks, I stripped the black valve handle that opens up the valve. I was able to remove the handle and 'steal' it from another valve and drain the tank. Since these are made of plastic and not very strong, has anyone up...

Bill, that is a GREAT way to clean the coach! Why didn't I think of that?!
