RE: Class C RV cost in the Covid era...

I would wait to buy, post Covid impact on demand and supply will be interesting, $ should go back to normal similar to other products that have spiked during Covid. Make sure you like the lifestyle since many new owners who rushed into it may sell. Maintenance and repairs especially on motorhomes will be a surprise for many especially if they are not handy.

RE: Help! Onan 4K generator refuses to start and stay on

I had the same issue, not starting easily. I changed the spark plug, changed the air filter, and changed the oil. Then run it monthly for 30 minutes with a load. Treat the generator nicely and it will treat you well. I always use 87 octane over the last 20 years.

RE: Trying to level my motorhome

For parking at home and depending on your situation, created large concrete ramp/platform to back up the vehicle to level it out. More complex but long term solution; bags of concrete, rebar, mix it yourself, wheelbarrow. For campsites used 2x6 different sizes to put under the tires if you must. Plastic ones are not very good.

RE: Be Thankful Your Ford V10 Is The 2-Valve Version

Thank you for the information. I perform oil changes every 3000 miles or every 2 years on all my vehicles. Not too much $ for peace of mind. I do it myself still running strong all these years. Ford E450 V10 is very strong engine and it has treated us nicely.

RE: What do you use for local travel once camped up?

Bikes are great good exercise.

RE: Considering move from class A to C

I like the Class C, Winnebago Minnie, 2002 because it had sleeping capacity for 2 kids and friends. Drives like a large van and I liked the Ford E450 V10, great power, never worried about MPG. If you are worried tenting is still fun :). The class A has a larger view upfront which is a plus. It does get a little hot up front on the Class C but nothing to worry about, been driving the unit for 19 years. Maintenance on this unit is much easier since there is so much room. Overall the Ford chassis held up nicely over the years, engine and transmission still going strong. Pay attention to leaks but easy to maintain and repair. Hope you enjoy many more years RVing.

RE: First Impressions

Congratulation on your purchase. I purchased a new Winnebago Minnie in 2002 and still drive it today. I chose Winnebago since they made decent quality products in 2002, It has provided wonderful moments with the family and I was fortunate to have started early with the RV life. Also it provided emergency service for the family, (power outage, heat, pandemic). We are not big resort type vacationers, like to eat our own food, sleep in our own beds, and bring our dog. Back then quality was not great in certain areas of the coach, focus on leaks. Inspect annually and repair. MPG was at 10 on average, gas was at .99 per gallon back in 2002. Gas prices and mpg was not a big concern since it is part of the lifestyle expense. Same for a home and vehicles, being handy helps, buy quality tools and parts. As you know service centers are difficult to make appointments and good mechanics / coach services are tough to locate especially when there is so much demand. Of course you can get a new vehicle before large repairs are required or hire someone, but that is a different debate same as homes and cars. GoRv.
