Thanks Bruce, that did the trick. I'd looked at the post but it looked pretty solid and I never thought to try adjusting it, but I did, and that solved the problem. I'm not sure what you mean by top and bottom jaws, Mike. My latch has a single C-shaped piece that rotates around the post when the lat...

Thanks for the info, Mike, though it's not what I was hoping for. Because our coaches are essentially the same model only one year apart I was hoping that what worked for you would also work for me, but that's apparently not the case. I've sent a message to Kim and we'll see what he says. Maybe he h...

I'm suddenly having a problem with not being able to close my side door.The door seems to have shifted downward so that the top of the latch, which should go over the top of post on the doorframe, now hits the bottom of that post, preventing the door from closing. The door hinges appear to be screwe...

Thanks Bill, that did it. My breaker box was in roughly the same place as your; I just hadn't bothered to unpack the stuff in that cabinet enough to find it. My sloppiness. This also brings up an issue with the message board, though. When I search the board for "generator" the only results...

The combination of A/C and microwave apparently tripped a generator circuit breaker in my 2000 24' RSB last week, and I can't find a way to reset it. I've reset the circuit breaker on the side of the generator and those on the power panel in the rv, and still get no AC power from the generator. My o...

A friend once had a similar problem with his MG. The engine would stop for no apparent reason and after the car sat for a while it would run again. He eventually traced it to a plugged air vent in his fuel tank cap. The vent was supposed to allow air into the tank as the gas was used. When that didn...

I'm the original poster for this thread, and I want to bring you up to date with the resolution. After my second rubber valve stem failed I wrote Costco customer service -- to say that the rubber valve stems created a dangerous and potentially life threatening hazard, and to ask that mine be replace...

I replaced my original Firestone tires in Sept 2003 with Michelins from Costco. I asked them to give me steel valve stems, but they used rubber stems instead that they said were were reinforced with metal cores and appropriate for the tires. Six months later a valve stem failed and they replaced it....

I'm planning on a permanent mount, either through the roof or attached to the ladder. May have to get another longer cable to do that? Other than the hole in the roof does anyone have anyother pros or cons on this? A longer cable will introduce additional losses and negate somewhat the gains from t...

We have a 2000 24'RSB (a model they don't make any more in that length). Our adult daughter often travels with us and when she does, the RSB is hers and we sleep in the cabover. Sitting up isn't possible and you have to learn how to best manage what happens when the person on the inside wants to get...

I have the Wilson magnetic mount antenna that doesn't have a built in ground plane and so needs to be mounted on a magnetic surface. I stick it on a metal plate about a foot across and that often works well with the plate and antenna sitting up in the cab-over. One advantage to this setup over a fix...

In reference to Ralph's post regarding the motorhome that was destroyed, my question would be was it due to the fact the refer was on or from a spark caused by the accident itself which would have created the explosion even if the refer was off. Not true. An extensive network of propane lines runs ...

Driving with your propane on is like driving with your seatbelt off and your air bag disconnected. It's fine as long as you don't have an accident, and it can cost you big time if you do. If your propane line is ruptured anywhere in the vehicle, you'll spew an explosive cloud into the air and turn t...

What altitude were you camping at? Gas fridges have a problem at higher altitudes, where the air is thinner. I've also found more of a problem in keeping it lit when it's colder. So the worst time is late night or early morning at high altitude. There doesn't seem to be much you can do about it. I'v...

One possibility is that the charge in your coach batteries was low when it wouldn't stay lit. The batteries may have had enough juice so you could hear the fan running, but not enough to convice the control circuitry to keep the gas flowing. If it happens again, run the generator (or just turn the e...
