16  Main Forum / General Discussion / RV Insurance and Extended Warranty Insurance on: October 31, 2015, 11:24:39 am
    I have had Good Sam extended warranty insurance for past two years and  I have never used it. I guess that good or not. I have decided to gamble and cancel it as it is due Dec 2nd. It was approximately 280. a quarter and feel I could put that money in the bank. I keep up maintenance on the rv and really travel from March to November  and since they do not prorate it I feel they are making money. Plus my RV service dealer said they did have a problem with Good Sam warranty even when they received an approval to do the work.  The RV is now winterized and parked in the Garage. 
  My RV insurance is with Good Sam as well and they have been notified that it is not in use till Spring.  At the same time I am sure there are other insurance companies that our members have used and maybe better rates.  Presently I am paying $900 a year and I don't pay for time garaged.   I did get a  quote through Family Motor Coach for $100.00 less but they don't give you a break for being out of service for the winter.   So many things to consider when getting quotes from these companies.   One is from National Interstate from FMCA and Good Sam uses National General Ins.Co.
So what are the opinions from other members.  I guess it has to be where you live that denotes rates.!!
I always check this forum for all ideas and value everyone's opinion. 
  Happy Halloween to all!

Age old problem of cleaning your tank sensors.   Check out this site website: tanktechrx.com
Boy did I learn  a lot about some of the chemicals.  Worst chemicals to use are TSG, Orderless and Happy Camper. Happy Camper being the worst one. This tanktechrx solution is not a chemical but a probiotic. Check it out. 
What was stated about the chemicals were told to me and I am only passing on this information.  I've used these chemicals over the years and it was interested to find out about them.

Thanks so much for your response. Does the stick-on one stay put when you're driving, or does it have to be taken down each time? Can you give me more info on the stick-on towel holder? Is it the kind that has tension and holds in place that way?

Never had a problem when driving. Weight of the towel holds it down.  Just put up two 3mlarge hooks with tape that comes with the hooks and the curtain rod just sits on the hooks and the towels holds the rod down. Its never has fallen while traveling.

I have to admit I have not found a spot I like for the toilet paper or the hand towel, so they both sit on my bathroom countertop.  I did put two big 3M stick hooks on the shower wall to hang towels.  I understand the reluctance to drill holes when you are trying to figure where you want things.  I have moved hooks multiple times before I settle on the perfect spot.  That's why I use the removable stick-on, because they really do remove without damage.
For the towels I used the 3M adhesive tape hooks on sliding bathroom door and use a round curtain rod to the towels.  I have two sets, one below the other, spacing out the length of the towels. works great.  For the toilet tissue I mounted it just above the heater vent  in the corner which faces the toilet.  that works too.  Hope this helps

Before you start replacing your batteries take a picture of the wiring. You can refer to this picture when rewiring to insure you have it correct. Wink

Remove the negative/ground wire first. Replace the that wire last. This will prevent sparking, which can be a bad thing.
I plan to mark each cable and take photos as it is very intimidating. I am well aware with so many cables. I also have my sons to help.
Thanks for the input. Smile

In my recent post I needed advice on batteries and now I solved my problem with batteries and was able to replace them and save $$$.  Found a place In Newark Delaware called TBS Tri-State Battery. these people were knowledgeable and save me a few dollars.  I dealt with Sarah and Josh and they were very personable and helpful in choosing the right batteries for the coach and chassis.  They are online and they do ship batteries.  They cost $109.95 each and the right size for the coach to fit in the 13x14 tray.  They are already charged and ready to go.  So if anyone is near or going thru Newark DE I or MD would recommend this business.  I also saved on sales tax in DE .  I will get $45.00 back when I turn in  the dead batteries.
Their address is 107 Albe Dr., Newark DE  19702 phone is 800 852-9700 and they also have a branch in Belair MD and Gambrills, MD.  Batteries I purchased were Deka Marine Master for the Coach and Deka Gold for the chassis. Coach batteries  are similar to Astro-Lite Group 27 Deep Discharge Marine Battery that Kermit told me about. 
Now to get my sons to mount them this weekend so we can get ready for camping season. thanks to all for advice in previous post Smile

I found several Group 27 batteries that I though would fit the battery tray on the PC at Battery One (Excide and Crown) and Battery Warehouse.  You might check those sources near you.

Found a place in Newark DE that has the 2700 series that will fit.  Its only a half hour from my house. They are $298 ea.
Thanks for your help. This forum is really great.

Hi,
I replaced the coach batteries in my new to me 2008 2551 in late January.  I went to S&S RV Super Service Center (recommended by Tom Hanlon).  George at S&S recommended Astro-Lite Group 27 Deep Discharge Marine batteries (12 volt).  He also tested the charging systems both from the vehicle alternator and the Trip Lite Inverter/Charger.  I had a very good experience with S&S and would recommend them. 
I see that you are in PA, but I don't know how far you are from Gettysburg.

David
Found out that astro-lite battery is no longer available.  It would have been perfect. Still searching for the correct size too. Will keep you posted..

Freckletweety I sent you an email.
replied to email and  checked out the battery mentioned  and found a place in Newark DE which is closer. I will call them tomorrow and get a price.  It seems the size of the batteries will work. The present ones are 12x6.25x8" high.   This battery from TSB Tri State is 6.9 high x6.5wx13 long.  I will double check the pan again to see if the 13"length will work.
Keep you posted. thanks for the help Smile

thanks.  I know them. They were very helpful when I camped out there. They are 90 miles from my home. So maybe it would be worth while to go there if I don't have any luck in my area.   Having problems finding the right size to fit.

My 2010 PC 2551 batteries are dying.  I am the second owner and I believe the batteries in coach and chassis are original. Date shown on batteries is 2008 but could be older.  Called Kermit and asked what I need to purchase.  I searched with the name on the battery which was Exide Nautilus NC27 and no luck so Kermit said search for 12v Group 27 Deep Cycle Marine battery.  So far the batteries are too high for the case/holder.  So has anyone else had this problem.  Luckily I don't have camping plans at present with this cold weather  and now  have to take care of this issue. The MH has been kept in our Pole Barn and it has been in the 20's some nights. I had MH plugged in and drove or ran it from time to time to hopefully not have the above problem but when the batteries are old there is nothing that will help.   I just had to replace a battery in my Saturn. It was only two years old and that was the life of the battery. 
So any suggestions.  Hopefully I won't have refabricate the pan for the batteries to fit
Kermit said they installed 2- 6v batteries in the newer homes.  Sometimes I wish I could afford the newer PC's.
