    For removing wheel covers on our 02 Southwind 35R I use the 'T' wrench that came with it but need to use the water pump or channel lock pliers on the outside of the nut cover to break it loose.

    I'm looking for a way to improve the headlights on my 2005 Discovery. I find that although they are functioning normally they are nearly as bright as the newer vehicles. Has anyone done any modifications that they are happy with?

    Before we arrived in Daytona, I stopped at a truck wash center, when I hooked up, tried the water heater on electric, didn't work, tried on gaz, no better, checked fuses, power etc. I called a service guy, we were on Saturday, he came on Monday only, we used the campground showers in the meantime, never thought of trying the heater again, Monday, the service guy asked me to turn the switches on, bingo, it does work on electric and on gaz, when I told him about the washing (pressure), told me that's probably what caused it, the board was sensing water and stopped the starting, I won't use those pressure washing center in the future

     When ever I take out the drain plug & flush out the hot water tank, water gets on the controls. As soon
     as they dry off, everything works fine.

    Check your water heater connectors they are plastic fittings on the metal hose rather than metal fittings that connect down there we have an 06 and have had both on the hot water side crack and blow out leaving a flooded bedroom floor. They can be replaced with standard metal fittings/hose you can get at lowes.

    I found a great little device from Amazon that alarms when it gets wet. My greywater floods into the shower stall and then onto the floor making a real mess. I'm sure I'm not the only person to have this wonderful experience, LOL.

    The item is the Leak Frog and it really works After showering, just dry the shower floor and place the Leak Frog on the shower floor, if the contacts on the bottom get wet it sounds off.

    On the headlight lens is a part number. Look up that part number and it will tell you what car or truck it was originally used on. We have a 2007 Discovery, our headlights are from a 1999 through 2004 Jeep Grand Cherokee.

    We had this problem (2003 Fleetwood Revolution). Problem turned out to be Fluorescent light above galley sink. Changed out fixture and problem went away.

    I have a 2006 Excursion with a Spartan chassis.  WHen turn my control knob for the heater on I do not get any warm air.  Warm air out comes out of the vents and/or the defroster ok, so I know it is not the heater. Can someone help me find the switching mechanism  that controls which port the air comes out?
