Well I am still learning...

Posted 09-05-2021 at 04:25 PM by Misjudg

Today it's all about the awning. I'm trying to figure out how to get my awning down cuz it's hot and I want the Sun not pounding on my front door and I also want to protect my plants. I still have to download my manuals for my appliances and stuff so I can start researching and studying that. I really really really really really want to figure out what the heck is wrong with my hot water heater and why the switch keeps popping there's so much I want to learn and do but you know what when...

A vaca? No way. ...well maybe.

Posted 08-10-2021 at 10:43 AM by Misjudg

I need a vacation. The stress of everyday life and two jobs I need it desperately. I just can't afford it. Maybe a long weekend. Obviously I wanna road trip in my RV (haven't named her yet). I don't want to go real far, but go spend time where I hope to spend the rest of my days. It's about 5-6 hours north, pretty straight shot after San Francisco Golden gate bridge. I know it's going to be a long while before I can relocate, if it ever happens, but just being away where I love so much would do...

I am a ding dong

Posted 08-08-2021 at 11:32 PM by Misjudg

The reason why I haven't posted a plug in a while is because I couldn't figure out how to get to it! I'm a ding dong so I think I figured it out cuz obviously I'm writing right now.
Okay so I got all my stuff for my exterior propane setup get ready to install the valve and I need another adapter so it fits on the flexible hose so that was frustrating and I couldn't go another day without propane so I went and got some. Yes I drove the big girl. I was absolutely terrified I was all by myself...

Okay so I got everything ready got everything out of the way it's all excited my brother sent me pictures of it working and I go and I go to turn the key for the slide out and the key just spins around it won't turn either way and then I hit enter out and there's absolutely nothing so am...

2003 class A Hurricane...

Posted 07-18-2021 at 12:38 PM by Misjudg

N stuff..

Hmm I think I will do a blog! How fun! My learning as I go blog! So excited.

So the last two week has been traumatizing. With that being said....I have made it only because of the forms on this website.
I'm going to attempt driving it to get propane. Stand by for that one. Hopefully all the advice I received will be enough. I can do this!

Front HVAC Swap and general maintenance on 2014 Fleetwood Discovery 40G 6-2017 PART 1

Posted 06-21-2021 at 02:12 PM by MEWright

Part 1 of 3 due to limit of picutres per post

Our front AC went out at the end of the season last year. Due to covid, non-use and general lack of caring I never got around to taking it in to the shop. I did have a mobile company come out and diagnose it as “A Dead Soldier” and not worth trying to fix. They also told me that to do a proper write up for it to qualify for warranty they would charge 400 and take it off the bill when I did the repair. The shops I call wanted upwards of...

Wrapping it up

Posted 05-06-2021 at 09:15 AM by TexasJeff

So, it's been about 6 or 7 months since taking delivery of our new 2021 Forester LE motorhome sold to us by RV Wholesalers and it's now time to close out the buying experience blog.

Where we left off:

Back in October we had punch list items that we asked RV Wholesalers to submit for us. The terms of purchase were that we would find a RV repair shop to do the work and then submit the repair costs to RV Wholesalers who would, in turn, submit to Forest River. The caveat...

Redwolf Journeys - New TV

Posted 05-05-2021 at 06:55 PM by Red Wolf

The front TV that Tiffin put in is fixed. The only good seat is the rear dining table bench. What I need is to have a set mounted on an extendable arm that can be angled towards the couch.

I decided to swap out the small 33" front TV with a new 40" Vizio. The area for the TV is 36 wide by 22 tall, and this Vizio is just a bit smaller than that wide. Here's the link to the TV on Amazon.. Picture looks crisp, and I like that it's got built in AppleTV and ApplePlay....

No power steering.

Posted 04-25-2021 at 10:42 PM by Rwbrown3

So when I bought our new to us 2007 Damon Tuscany 4076 I noticed the steering wheel was hard to turn at a stop, the instant the wheels started rolling the coach could be turned. I thought that was just normal, I'd never driven a CP coach before. This spring when I brought the coach of a deep winter slumber the coach had lost all power steering. I was almost pulling my arms out of their sockets trying to turn the steering wheel. Three weekends ago I received my TRW power steering pump. Less than...

Last weekend

Posted 03-26-2021 at 10:34 AM by Rwbrown3

So, I'm about caught up. Last weekend, I flew out of the village and over to Homer, drove the 70 or so miles up to Best Truck in Kenai to pick up the coach. I had rented covered storage to help keep the coach out of the weather but the past two months it has sat in the weather at Best Truck, not smart on my part. When I called to let them know that I was coming to pick up the coach and would need to have them bring it around front they agreed. A day or so later I got a call from them saying the...

What I like and dislike about my Tuscany 4076

Posted 03-25-2021 at 06:04 PM by Rwbrown3

The biggest thing I do not like about my Tuscany is the invisible "shield" on the front of the coach, it has molded as many of the them do and will need to be removed, that'll be a pain but something I plan on taking care of this summer. Secondly is the cost of any work being performed. The big truck shops seem to charge a premium for any work on an RV and I can understand some things require a contortionist to get to but other things are exactly the same as a commercial truck. Fortunately...

Edmonton AB Freightliner

Posted 03-25-2021 at 05:44 PM by Rwbrown3

About an hour west of Edmonton the trip took a turn for the worse. While driving the high temp light came on and an alarm sounded, I pulled off the highway, turned off the coach and walked to the back of the coach. I didn't smell anything out of the ordinary and there wasn't any smoke. My wife immediately called roadside assistance, fortunately we bought that with the coach. I pulled up the floor to look at the motor and saw a shredded serpentine belt. After a couple of hours a huge tractor with...
