FMCA 2014 Convention History
The “FMCA Convention History” in the January 2015 issue (page 320), which lists previous FMCA convention dates, locations, and coach counts, erroneously indicated that the 89th and 90th Family Reunions in Perry, Georgia, and Redmond, Oregon, respectively, occurred in 2015.
Owners Manual Info
I have a 2011 Sportscoach Pathfinder. Have you seen a specific year and model owners manual for this coach? All I have is a generic motorhome manual from Coachmen for all types of motorized RVs, and it is too general in its content.
The following companies have recalls detailed in this month's column: Allied Recreation Group, Prevost Car Inc., Winnebago Industries Inc.
Sticky Leveling Situation
Dear RV Doctor:
We have a 2007 “new to us” Georgetown motorhome. We have used the Lippert Components leveling system five times — during the walk-around at the dealer when we picked it up (worked fine); that evening at a campground (worked fine); in our driveway a couple of weeks later (all jacks stuck down); camping a couple of weeks later (worked fine); and during an end-of-season trip (rear jacks stuck down).
We all know the importance of the motorhome being relatively level when parked — for efficient operation of the refrigerator and also for comfort inside the RV. Normally, when settling in to a new site, the driver has to move the motorhome back and forth while the copilot stands next to the bubble levels inside and gives directions to help level the vehicle.
The California Pacers chapter of FMCA marked its 25th anniversary with a rally from September 24-28, 2014, at Wine Country RV Resort in Paso Robles, California. The wonderful event was filled with fun and laughter, as are all of our rallies.
The Lebanon Valley Expo Center & Fairgrounds in Lebanon, Pennsylvania, was the setting for the Penn Coachmen chapter’s 45th anniversary rally July 17-20, 2014. Seventy-six members attended. Ron and Carol Becker served as rally masters.
The Oregon River Ramblers chapter celebrated its 15th anniversary during a rally held September 12-14, 2014, at Port of Newport Marina RV Park in Newport, Oregon.
