EHILL,

There have been some of the new Tour Masters that are having a cooling problem with the basement air conditioning as the circulation is not what it should be and it does not cool the coach.

Gulf Stream Coach has authorized the installation of a roof top unit on some of these and calling them "boost/conditioner". They are supposed to work with the basement unit to cool the coach.

I was responding to Dave (djqualls) when I mentioned the unit because his was one that GSC had authorized the installation of one of these units.

If you are having the same problem, I would recommend that you contact GSC and your dealer. I understand that GSC is well aware of the problem and are working on it, but they are taking care of the coaches already built on a case by case basis when the customer complaints.

Ron

EHILL,

Would you mind turning off your "Caps Lock", it makes it hard to read in all capital letters and some consider it shouting on the forums.

If you are talking about the breaker on the front of the inverter, it protects the inverter and the inverter charges your house batteries. On my Xantrex Inverter/Charger it is a 25 amp. breaker.

Now about your water heater door loss. It has happen to many, including myself on our first MH. There are some when you stop at a rest area or other places that will turn the spring loaded latch because they know the door will fly off when you are traveling down the road. Really funny they think!!!

What I have done to prevent this is that I drill a hole right above the latch in the slot and install a stainless steel screw. This prevents the latch from being turned easily and also keeps the door from coming off. The only drawback is that you have to remove the screw to remove the door to service the hot water tank. But this is a minor inconvenience compared to losing the door/cover.

We are all here to help as the forum motto says: "Gulf Stream RV owners coming together to help each other!"

I figure that we all are the experts here on the forum since we use our RV's and learn our systems sometimes the hard way.

Ron

Actually Ron, I think JD & Ellen were intending to shout! With everything that went wrong for them on their outing, I'd be shouting as well.

Particularly troubling is the water on the floor. We keep the icemaker shutoff turned off outside in the external compartment behind the fridge, though for another reason.

For those winterizing their units, don't forget to disconnect that line & drain the water up to the icemaker itself. Follow the manufacturer's instructions) Also after the small line is removed, open the valve, & pump your RV antifreeze thru the larger feed line onto the ground till the fluid is red. DO NOT get antifreeze into the smaller line to the fridge! You southern snow birds need not pay attention, but us northerners better pay heed & not forget this water line.

RJ,

Great advice on winterizing the ice maker. Ours is done while waiting to head to Florida next month after Christmas.

Shouting or not, ALL CAPITAL LETTERS ARE HARD TO READ.

I screwed up last year when we went to Florida with the icemaker. I reconnected the lines and didn't tighten or check the one line. Water leaked and ran under the back of the refrigerator out onto the hardwood flooring in front of the frig. Dumb on my part......

So I sealed the bottom of the frig where you access the frig from the outside cover. Now if I would do that again or would develop a leak the water will not run back under the frig and inside the coach. It runs out the access cover and down the side of the coach. I tested it after doing this with a leak that made by loosening the water line to make sure.

Ron
