    GarynNancy:
    Thu at 12:12 PMI was wondering if anyone had experienced this:
    I have mopped our floors dozens of times, sometimes with a cleaner and sometimes with just water. It doesn't seem to matter how I clean them. I even cleaned them on my hands and knees with a cloth.
    If wat...  more

      Sally & Terry Thu at 12:25 PM If you notice, your floor is textured. It grabs every bit if dirt you track in. So, it’s always a little dirty. Ours is colored to hide the dirt.

      Robbie & Alice Thu at 12:56 PM We have the very same problem with tiles.   Noticed the problem to be worse when we are parked on pavement...our feet become black.

      GarynNancy 11 hours ago This 5th wheel is a 2017 so not that old.  It is kind of textured though so that kind of makes sense that my sponge mop might not be getting it all.

      Jim & Sharon Ham April 14 They do make a complete replacement unit where the old damaged back side is removed and a new one slipped in place.  You can google replacement cost.  If you make it a DIY project, it is cost effective.  If you pay a shop rate of $100 an ho...  more

      TheClearyClan April 14 If your in an RV Park ask the office about repair guys that come to the park on a given day of the week or so. They usually have several appointments in the same park and don't charge extra to come to your campsite.

      Richard Lang Mon at 5:58 AM You an also give Dometic a try; when my fridge bit the dust in Perry they let me know the proper replacement part number (although I had already found a company with an exact replacement). A good repair tech should be able to get what you need.
    • Karma (The Great Canadian Girl)
      Robbie & Alice Mon at 7:14 AM Google "dometic refrigerator parts" and you'll get lots of good information.
    • Karma (The Great Canadian Girl)
      TeamFoxy Mon at 8:45 AM If you don't smell amonia, the fridge is probably repairable for a lot less than buying a new fridge.
      The first thing you might try is resetting the circuit board. You would need to download the service manual and study how to do that. On a Norcold...  more

      Charles & Sharon April 9 The IR module may be bad:  Visio is especially noted for bad IR modules in TV and maybe it uses the same PCB?  BTW-My Visio 32" D series once in a while desensitizes so that the remote has to be close or not work at all.  In this case I unp...  more

      TeamFoxy April 9 Search Amazon for a "your brand of stove" burner ignighter. The one for our Magic Chef stove is $18. I have not needed to replace one on our RV stove, but have replaced many on propane grills over the years. Not hard at all.

      Andy & Maureen T April 9 Make sure the burner and around the igniter are clean. The smallest of particle can effect lighting. Here is a good google site     www.google.com/search?source=hp&ei=SJ-sXJ3mJ6LX5gKA0IuYBg&q=gas+stove+igniter+not+working&oq=Gas+sto...  more
