Made it to Indiana!!!. Left Dallas last Friday, took 2 1/2 hours to get out of town and it wasn't rush hour! Sure won't miss Dallas traffic! Myra followed me in her car and acted as a blocker when I need to change lanes, BIG help in Dallas. I was pulling a 6x10 enclosed cargo trailer, sure wished I had gotten the track bar on before we left.

Spent Sat and Sun in Oklahoma visiting old friends I hadn't seen in twenty years, sure was nice. The town I lived in has grown a lot and very different. Had breakfast at the very old restaurant where the movie Where The Red Fern Grows was filmed, interesting place and great food! Drove by where Mr Ed the talking horse was buried, watched that show a lot when I was younger.

Drove to the Six Flags KOA in St Louis and stayed Monday night, VERY nice campground! Left about 8:30a thought traffic would be bad and it wasn't. Drove to sister-in-laws house Tues and got in about 3p, had a good dinner then went on to the KOA in Bluffton, IN. 15 miles down a narrow two lane, located on the other side of nowhere. Nice place, but very basic, lots of full timers working on the GM plant in Fort Wayne staying there because the campground is open year round, most close here the end of October.

Yesterday we moved to the Johnny Appleseed campground in Fort Wayne, nice place, no cable or sewer but good location for us to stay until we close on our new house. Lots of walnut trees here, walnuts dropping on the coach sound like you're having baseballs thrown at you!!! We'll be here about a week or so until house closing.

Observations:
Having the big camera monitor on the dash is great in heavy traffic! The insulation added to the doghouse was worth every penny, no heat and big reduction in noise level. With cruise control on the engine noise is almost nonexistent, only time you have noise is when accelerating. If you pull a trailer you need a track bar, no ifs, ands, or buts, you need one! On narrow two lane roads class A coaches and semi's don't mix well, but I already knew that, just saying! Windshield wipers worked great, was concerned after hearing about the problems others had. We hit some pretty heavy rain in Illinois and partly in Indiana. Wish they had a wiper for the rear camera, after the rain quit I had to stop and clean it so I could see!

Coach has performed Great! Averaged 8 mpg pulling a heavy trailer running around 65 mph over about 1200 miles, not to bad in my opinion. Since we've had no cable the digital Samsung tv's have been great at pulling in over the air stations.

This has been a great trip, no problems at all! Great to be back online with my friends, hope everyone is doing well!!! Anxious to get moved in to our new house but dread having to buy a new snowblower!!!

Windsport

Does anyone know where the water pump is on a Windsport 31S? I would like to put on an accumulator tank like I had on my Vegas.

Thanks

Easiest way to find it is open a faucet, turn on pump, and trace the noise. Should be fairly close to your fresh water tank. I’ve had an accumulator tank on the last 3-4 motorhomes and wouldn’t be without one now.

3 of 6 tv connections working/not working

Hi guys,

I’m trouble shooting the 3 tv’s on my 2017 Windsport 29M. Living room tv works on both antenna & dvd. Bedroom tv only works on dvd - no antenna signal. Outside tv doesn’t work on either. It does appear that the outside HDMI cable is inoperative, but that doesn’t explain the antenna not working. Appreciate any input or suggestions.

First cabinet above the dinette next to the door has your box for hdmi cables, check to see they are all plugged in securely. Check your coax connections on the back of the TVs. If everything is plugged in you may have some bad cables which will require a trip back to the dealer for replacement. As you will soon learn the Seiki TVs are junk! Changed out my TVs to Samsung and now get over twice as many over the air channels. Seiki TVs will not work with most campground cable systems without a converter.

Think I remember seeing it beneath the floor panel of the left side of the galley base cabinet.

It is under the left side of the kitchen sink's false floor (just above the water tank inside the coach. They should have shown it to you on the PDI.

All the TV signals from the antenna and cable come to the TVs by coax. HDMI signals are generated by some computer in the coach (Dish, DirectV, DVD). If one TV works on the antenna and another doesn't the problem is with the coax. The problem could be at the TV connection, splitter connection or the coax itself.
