31  Main Forum / General Discussion / Rusty hinges on: December 05, 2011, 09:24:35 am
Has anyone had rusty hinges???   Noticed that the bathroom door hinges were
rusty....had seen a reddish-brown powder on the floor...

Will need to be replaced.

Had not had this ever before....in former rv. 

 Guess I will need to keep the pc either
plugged in or hang a Damp Rid in bathroom.

(Have also used vent/fan after using shower....and door propped open
when stored.   ???

I tried them on the last trip.   With lots of laundry, it was great not having to lug a heavy soap container, too!   Smile

Am really liking those hooks called Command Strips.   They come in various shapes and sizes....and tell you how
many pounds they'll hold.  You can remove them without damage to the wall.

I am using several (the ones that say they can hold 7 lbs.) in the shower to hang up items to dry...towels, washcloths, and even a plastic bag of dirty clothes.

Have also used two to hold up a net bag with pockets ... just below the shower head... for holding several things, like
soap and spray bottles, scrubber, etc.  They also hold a bag of doggie "bags" and leash by the door.
 
You might find all sorts of places to use them in the rv!   Smile

Well, I have two things to mention. (1)  Does anyone know how to raise the tv volume?  When the
ac is on, the highest setting is not enough to hear .  (When a dvd is playing, it is plenty loud. Is there
some way to use all the speakers for just tv listening?

(2) On my first long trip (FL to TX), the Sprinter caused me some concern, but I learned something and
wonder if other Sprinter owners have had this happen.  ???   The oil light began blinking.   I checked
the (Seems all new Sprinters will have Mercedes logo now...not Freightliner and Dodge as well).
Found a dealer in Pensacola who did service them, but they could not do it that day.  He had seen this
problem before, though, and that was a good thing!   He said that Sprinter is very sensitive to too much
oil.....the oil level must not reach the Max mark on the dipstick.  It should land between the Min and Max
marks.   
 Has any of you PC Sprinter owners had that oil light blink?
All input is appreciated!
Thanks,
LRS

I really appreciate all of the tire advice!!!  After reading your replies, talking to others, and doing
research...I am getting new tires....was not wanting to have the expense...but have decided it will
give me peace of mind.  Thank you all.  Upon further observation, I found that the tires on my 2010 rv are dated 2007.
The cruiser is outdoors, but in a "carport" on concrete.  It is nestled in trees and "woods"...not indoors
and lucky to be heated like some of yours.  I am in Florida.
 One guy parked his rv on wood.  Is that if the rv is on
the ground...rather than concrete?   ??   
Anyhow, I feel better now that the decision has been made---right or wrong.  Happy rv-ing to all!

After getting the oil changed and the sprinter phoenix checked over in general....the shop owner told me about some e-mails he had
received about someone with a similar vehicle and the same tires...Kuhmo (sp.?)  blowing....multiple tires on the writer's
 rv.
Some got bubbles in the sidewalls.   
Has anyone had any trouble with these tires?   My P.C. is listed as 2010, but the Sprinter manual that came with it has 2008
on the cover!!
The factories buy these chassis with the tires on them...and sometimes they might sit...so, am I correct to figure that my tires
could be almost 4 years old....instead of 2?
The recommendation for replacing rv tires is 5-7 years, I think.   For safety, I might better get new tires...especially after hearing
about the tires on my rv have had bad reviews.
What kind of tires should I get?  (The shop owner said to get Michelin.) ????

Been a Good Sam member for years...and after three rvs....but never stuck that decal
an any of them.  Smile        Did the same for Passport America, too.
Kept the card or decal in a "camper wallet" in glove box.  Kept all rv related cards in there
to take in campground offices when registering.

I think I remember someone attaching a handle on the inside of their PC's door.Seemed a good idea, so put on a suction cup one.....called a tub or shower safety bar...
plastic, but has things to "flip" at each end that starts the suction.
Came off at first,...then left it for weeks...and when I went out to the rv, it was still
there!  Yay!   (Mounted it horizontally --  across the door--)
Works well.   Smile

Thanks so much for the oil advice!   
Voices of experience are much appreciated.
Guess I will drive a little farther and find that Dodge dealer.

39  Main Forum / General Discussion / Changing Oil on: May 19, 2011, 04:55:57 pm
I am wondering if there is a Sprinter PC owner out there who has put synthetic oil in their rv.  ???

Also, where do you folks go to get the oil changed....Camping World?  Jiffy Lube?  Other?
Am checking prices...and to see if they can "do" this vehicle....tall and 24 ft. long. 

      (Our previous rv was 38 ft. long and a diesel pusher that had fewer options for service places.)

Just wondering if anyone has used a place like Jiffy Lube where they have a "pit" for the workers and tall bays.

One more:   What about changing the oil in a LP generator?   Same place?  Kind of oil?    How often?

Thanks a lot.

 Thank you.   
Someone said that Tank 1 (inside panel) is likely the black tank. ....otherwise just try them.
(The pumps outside were not labeled either. Haha...)

Hope to use the cruiser more this year.  Yay!

Yes, we did have very serious health problems....both of us had cancer....so we did not get to use our cruiser but once
that first year. 
42  Main Forum / General Discussion / Dump Tanks on: May 13, 2011, 01:02:35 pm
Finally dumped the tanks of the Sprinter 2400.
Discovered that the pumps outside were not labeled, so used trial and error after calling the factory.

But---when inside, found that the panel over the stove listed:  Tank 1 and Tank 2, but did not specify as
to which was gray and which was black.

Never thought of it before....til time to dump.
Please help a newbie.   Smile
