91  Main Forum / General Discussion / Moisture collects on side walls of twin beds when very cold weather on: February 19, 2013, 07:09:32 pm
WE experience 22 degree weather and found icy frost on the side walls between mattress and wall.  How can we prevent this and the windows are drafty by the beds.   Since this is first time using the mh I am finding alot out but that is what you get I guess in buying used.
  Also the mattresses have alot to be desired.  Need to replace them and need to find out where I can get new ones.
The coach is only two years old and wouldn't think they would be uncomfortable.  They give us back problems.
   ThankYou in advanced
92  Main Forum / General Discussion / Sanitary Mascerator System didn't work right. on: February 19, 2013, 07:02:57 pm
First time out with motorhome and the pump did not work. So had to do the old method and was able to dump. The only problem with that my emergency hose I carried with me was not long enough, so off the walmart for a new system.  Had help from the campground owner...Will have to take mh to dealer and see what the problem was.   I was looking forward to using the system but at least the old way worked.  The test shows that the black water is still 1/3 full so there are some dirty sensors. Will need to clean it out when I get home.    Even Thetford couldnt help me.  Almost call a rv service but the campground owner and another rv camper helped out.  If you ever come to Williamsburg, Va a small family owned Anvil Campground are very accomodating.
 So what could have been the problem

 ThankYou REally appreciate all the advice. Would prefer to use electric to get hot water but wasnt sure about the red light. So now I know what it is for.  My paperwork doesn/t tell  you.
    Thanks again

this my first trip out with my 2010,2551 and the red light on the switch for the hot water heater does not lite up when turning it on. water heated ok and I heard the lighting. I also have electric to make hot water but without the light working I am not sure how long it takes and trying to save on propane by wanting to use electric. Could the light need to be replaced??   
  So used to see the lite work on my former mh. 
   
any advice???    Smile

thanks for the tips.  I did open the plug and drain whatever was in the tank which was not very much.  Put in some water in the fresh water tank and ran it and it was clear.  I think we are okay.  I have bottled water with me anyhow.   Still have to install the cartridge in the  water filter but going to wait until all the lines are clear.  I only drink bottle water anyway.  I also have a filter to install on the kitchen spigot but goin to wait on that too.
 ThankYou  Thanks again to everyone.  this forum has been very helpful since this motorhome is so different that my 33ft that i traded in.

    in trying to learn the system and dewinterize the mh, and  I think i got accidently get antifreeze in the hot water heater, so if I open the drain on the hot water heater outside and empty it, would that work to clean it out.  Then follow the above instructions, I should be ok.  Plan to leave on my trip, Thursday and head to Gettysburg, PA and then to Williamsburg, so I have to straighten things out before I leave, as well as check my tires for pressure....Repacking the motor for the season is sometimes daunting.
   This has been quite a learning experience.  In my other mh, there was one valve and it said shut-off valve.   Why don't they color code these valves to make it easier.   Also, when cruiser was build it seems most of the weight is on the passenger side with the fresh water tank and hot water tank as well as the inverter/converter. I only have one slide and still have room on driver's sdie when not extended.
  At this same time last year, my husband was there to advise me.  But since he passed away in May, I am the one to does it all. At that time I had a large C-class.  We did things together.

Getting ready to travel to Williamsburg and test out the motorhome as this is my first trip out. I am the second owner of this PC and paper instructions were left by former owner on opening and closing the valves to the water system.   It is all to confusing.  the valves are in back of the bottom Galley drawer. Laying flat they are in the shape of an "H".   Trying to figure out what valves are for the water heater. two are the vertical valves and the middle horizonal is the third one.   So which one is the bypass to the hot water????  The paper instructions are confusing.  They listed winter and summer but look the same to me.   Does anyone else have this system.....  Help!!!
   I also have an inline cartridge water filter system.  I see that all the antifreeze is is gone in it and want to know, before I put in the new cartidge, whether I should run clean water for awhile until all the pink is gone.  I did most of it but still not sure when to install the catridge.  Filter is under the driver's side bunk.  You have to be a contaugious to change it.....
   I thoroughly enjoy this forum and look forward to the Sept rally up north.  Plan to attend Passport America's rally in Tenneesee in June and have other camping plans in the meantime.  Help   Help

thanks, it is cheaper to disconnect the hose and for the amount of cold weather camping I do, I 'll do the cheaper route plus it is another hose to store.
Going out the end of february to Williamsburg, VA and it shouldn't be that bad then. I was there at the end of Feb. last year and did okay.
 ThankYou

  shrug Need some input on the Heated Water Hose advertised in Camping World. Thought of purchasing it but there is always the thought of it being stolen.  Had to think that way. It's $92 but the shipping is $15. Camping world shipping costs are high. My nearest store is 30 miles and a 45 min drive from my home.  A couple of times I camped  last year in the cold weather, I just disconnected the water hose from the camper during the night when it was reported to be freezing.  But after a few hours and the sun came up, I just hooked back up again.
  So what is everyones thought on this hose.
 ThankYou

 Cheer Thanks for the suggestions on the flannel sheets.  I was able to get 2 twin sets at target online that were reduced. I will adjust them to fit and give up the idea of making my own. For what I paid for these sets, my time is more valuable. 
  So thank you for all your ideas and tips.  They were very well appreciated.     ThankYou

  :)Hi Everyone, Just joined the forum after finding out about it from a member of the Cruisers.  I traded in my 2006 33ft Gulf  Stream Yellowstone C Class for 2010 , 2551 Phoenix Cruiser. Since my husband passed away this spring, it was time to downsize.
My unit has twin beds and a very nice layout. It feels real cozy compared to the GS which had two slides and had a 7Ft ceiling, and had to use a stool to turn on fan, etc.  I put 18,000 miles on it and this unit has 20,000 but it was in my price range.  Looking forward to camping next month in Williamsburg to a quilt show.  I am a quilter and love to go to quilt shows and get ideas.  Been quilting for over 15 years and it keeps me busy.  I live in the amish country in Chester Co. Pa and it is so quiet compared to when I lived in Philadelphia.  I have three grown children, three grandchildren, and 4 great grandchildren. They all live out of state and don't get to see them too often so I don't get to spoil them.  So I go see them and camp nearby. From Albany, NY, Mt.Washington, NH and Hagerstown MD.
  Looking forward to warmer weather and have a trip planned with Family Motor Coach this June to Wyoming. Never traveled west before so this will be the first. Luckily I have a quilter friend going with me and share the driving. 
  So, maybe we will cross paths someday.    Heart Shower
105  Main Forum / General Discussion / Flannel Sheets for Bunk Size Sheets on: January 20, 2013, 04:11:44 pm
Just joined the forum and have a 2010, 2551 with bunk size Beds. Looking for flannel sheets and having a hard time finding them in a reasonable price. I bought bunk size regular sheets from camping world and they fit fine but would like to get flannel  sets.  My last resort is to make my own.   I just traded in a 33Ft. Gulf Stream yellowstone with two slides and it had a King size bed. So I have 3 sets of king size sheets, one being flannel.  So worst comes to worst , I am thinking of splitting up one set which is  flannel.  Trying to avoid that work.   So if anyone has any suggestions, would appreciate a come back.
I  really enjoy the forum and have already got some good tips.
