RE: New motor home blues…

Try to keep athe glass is 1/2 full perspective. Wires up against the exhaust is a simple fix. While I understand your aggravation as long as the fix is simple take care of it and move on. Its when the fixes are not so simple that the real problems begin! Hopefully the entire rig will be sorted out before long and you can forget about all your new RV blues.

RE: Gasser guys and gals ...why not a diesel ?

To add ... people saying diesel maintenance is too high ? Like what ? LandYacht35diesel My 1987 was on a Ford 350 chassis and was a FRED. 1. additives to every tank of fuel 2. oil changes at $235.00 3. 3 sets of fan belts 4. 2 transmissions 5. having to have shore power or a generator for starting in cold weather. 6. failed glow plugs 2 x 7. failed power steering 2 x 8. failed house isolator 9. failed grounding wire to dash 10. failed starter 11. front tires needing to be rotated every 6 thousand miles 12. failed fuel line. I had to have them cut out the heater and use generic fuel line. 13. failed starter solenoid 14. failed transmission cooler These are a few of the many problems I and my brother had. Only a couple of those items are exclusive to diesel. Fan belts, transmissions,starters can fail on any engine even the gas powered ones.;)

RE: Gasser guys and gals ...why not a diesel ?

Diesel is all about performance. In short some are willing to pay extra to experience and enjoy diesel performance. Others see no value in the diesel experience. Or they may see some value but are not willing to pay for it.

RE: Generators for 5er

At this point built in gensets are getting to be obsolete. For the same $$$ I spent on my built in Onan. A DIY solar system can be assembled to supply all my electrical needs incuding A/C. Yes A/C is now possible with solar and a large Lithium battery bank. Solar is the wave of the future, that wave is here now. It will only get better.

RE: Generators for 5er

Prior to our toy hauler we had a regular 5er and a Yamaha 3000 in the bed of the truck. We ran generator in the bed of the truck, but would unhook from camper when doing this. It worked well, but required having portable gas cans. Toy hauler has 5500 Onan. We have 60 gallons of onboard fuel which is great. No unhooking, no cords, no gas cans. No overload worries. It does drink more fuel. You might search for a diesel generator you could mount in truck bed and feed off the truck. For the life of me, I can not figure out why Onan hasn't started making inverter gensets OR why Honda dropped their on-board gensets years ago OR why Champion, or any other company, hasn't started building on-board inverter gensets. :h Lyle There really 2 different markets. A built in Onan is a $7000.00 option. vs. any portable which are 1/3-1/2 the price with none of the conveniences of a built in.

RE: Pro-Pride Hitch

A Propride or Hensley will eliminate the push caused by passing 18 wheelers. The premium hitches are expensive but they are game changers. Friction based hinges do not compare.

RE: Question about freshwater tank use

All I can say is: If you don't put water in the Fresh Water Tank, you won't be camping at some of the Beautiful State Park CGs that we visit, as may State Parks in numerous Cities don't have Full Hook-ups. That sort of my point. But if your happy with what your doing and FHU is what you seek. There is nothing wrong with that. The main reason to use your tank is that all parks do not have running water at the site. There are lots of fantastic sites with no running water.

RE: Question about freshwater tank use

It's amazing to me how many people do not use their fresh tank fresh. But I guess if you are a pedestal topedestal FHU camper you have no need for a fresh tank. While I enjoy FHU camping,there are many great places in my area that are not FHU.Some are electric only sites. When the weather dips below freezing often CG's will turn off water and require all campers to disconnect from the hose connection and use their fresh tanks to supply water to their RV. If I did not use my fresh tank I would miss out on a lot of great camping spots.

RE: I'm actually in favor of high cancelation fees....

Don't make up rules that can't be enforced.How do you suspend someone? THe offender will just make reservations in the wife's name. Then the son, brother, sister etc. Is the plan to suspend the entire family? Simply cancel the entire reservation and enforce 1st day show up rules. It's not foolproof but it will tighten the loophole. Yes you could cancel and try to re-book but that is not guaranteed.

RE: Generators for 5er

What is the fixation with high KW gennys? No heat. No air. When it come to higher KW gensetsTHe fixation is the A/C. If no A/C is involved any 2000 watt unit will do. But A/C is a real concern that requires more power. Sleeping/living in a hot RV is not an enjoyable experience

RE: Our first, and last, TT rental experience

Consider it a preview of what you will be up against if/when you buy your own unit. No,If it was their own trailer,the mess either would not be there, or cleaned up when it happened. The black tank would have been clean, the fridge would have been running and cool, the maintenance and repair would have been completed. Rental experience is not at all equal to ownership! Ownership is not just a breeze. While the OP discovered the issues last minute and had to deal with them. If he owned the unit he would still have had to discover issues and deal with them.

RE: I'm actually in favor of high cancelation fees....

In the Ohio state parks you cant do that scam anymore since they caught on. You cannot cancel part of your reservation its either all or nothing. That^^^ is probably a simple way to close the loophole. If you truly need to cancel than you have no choice and you will understand the policy. If you are taking advantage of the system then that loophole has been closed

RE: I'm actually in favor of high cancelation fees....

I agree the loop holes could be tightened up. But the root of the problem is the demand is greater than the supply.

RE: Figuring Mileages

A general rule of thumb. Use whatever method you want to determine distance. Divide total distance by 50 and you will get a pretty accurate time that includes stops.

RE: 12 volt DC Kuerig Mini

The Myjo coffe maker is a way to make Kuerig coffe if you have a way to heat the water. Very simple gadget. No electric required. MyjO

RE: Tire Failure

"Might have to take our chances with Goodyear." Say it ain't so Ethyl. ;) Not only will you take your chances with Goodyear. You will pay signicantly more $$$ to take your chances with Goodyear.

RE: Black Eye

Based on responses from this thread, we can see why there is no firm pull over, don't impede traffic rule. It seems we all have a different approach / standard as to what s acceptable when it comes to a line of traffic behind you.

RE: Tire Failure

I am an Anti-Chinese tire person. How much evidence does one need to understand the problem? You are obviously not aware of Sailun tires. They have reinvigorated the 16" and larger towable RV tire market.
Lantley 09/17/21 05:18am General RVing Issues
RE: Black Eye

I think the issues is driver awareness. The driver should be aware that they are impeding ttaffic and do what they can to improve traffic flow vs. being oblivious to the fact that there is a line of traffic behind them. In some cases a pull off maybe available in some cases there maybe no way to allow the traffic to pass. However the offending driver will never find a pull off if they are aware they are impeding traffic and not looking for a way to let the traffic pass. A good driver will be aware and couteous vs. unaware or stubborn. Often the driver does not believe they are impeding trafic or they believe it is OK for them to impede traffic regardless of the situation.

RE: Kia, Hyundai: Please come to the rescue "Pathetic Quality"

I think the prior post raise a good point. All or at least most of the towable manufacturers that built a better unit are out of business. Excel,Carriage,DRV are gone. We claim we want better, but we don't seem to support the companies that build a better unit. When the time come we settle for the mass produced mediocrity vs. paying more for a better unit.
