The air horns on the Allegro stopped working. Not the fake electric ones up top, but a pair installed by the previous owner in the grille. I have plenty of air pressure, the solenoid works and I can…Continue

So I bought a Valterra Sewer Solution pseudo-macerator pump so I can dump my RV at home into 1 of 3 sewer clean-outs in my yard. I went to Home Depot and bought 100-feet of plastic sprinkler lines…Continue

So this has been a very slow move. We got 33" of snow last week so I couldn't get to the "old" house to move the remainder of my belongings. We dug out on Monday, I worked all week and didn't have…Continue

Today's Pocono 400 race was the first trip out this season with the old Allegro. I am the world's worst procrastinator. I didn't get to half of the work that I wanted to do on the rig before I left. And I had to leave the race early because I have school work due at midnight (that I am not doing right now -…Continue

My brother, a member here but not a frequent poster, lost his RV today. We were supposed to head out to Hershey this afternoon. He had the fridge on electric, and in preparation for leaving switched it over to propane. He waited for the green light indicating it was lit and went in the house. 15 minutes later the trailer exploded. Thank God no one was hurt and the house, while damaged, didn't light up.
I'm still going, but I have to say I'm really shaken up. You may recall…Continue

Filled the Allegro up in preparation for my next trip this coming weekend.
It looks like I went 165 miles between "fills", and it took 40 gallons. So about 4 MPG. I did run the generator quite a bit - a bit over 5 hours and it sucks down about a gallon an hour. I also question my last "fill" because I know that when it's full it pukes gas out the top of the tank where it meets the filler tube. The gas station attendant (can't pump my own gas in NJ) insisted it was full but…Continue

If you recall, my RV has been sitting for around 6 years with a bad engine. I bought it for basically nothing. The owner said everything works, and so far he has been 100% correct. He also said he put Stabil in the 80 gallons of fuel when the engine failed. But, the generator would not run unless I put the fuel supply into a 5-gallon container of fresh gas. Today, I decided to siphon 5 gallons of the "bad" gas out of the RV. I dipped the generator feed into the "bad" gas. Holy cow it runs.…Continue
