RE: Tow dolly or not?

I have never noticed a swaying while towing. I tow a KIA on a dolly with many thousand miles without a problem.

RE: Steps

I guess my first question is, does the motor have power? Can you hear it try and run when you open or close the door? If the motor has power and tries to operate, you might what to check this. Could the steps be binding putting pressure on the system which will shut if off. The pivot points on the steps may be dirt and need lube of some type. Have you gotten underneath and looked to see if the motor assembly was still attached to the frame. The reason I asked that was last year my steps stopped working but the motor was running. I looked underneath and the four screws holding the motor assembly had become loose and sheared off. Good Luck

RE: GAS CLASS A. Vs. Dually

I had a dodge ram 3500 dually diesel, pulling a very heavy 35' 5wheel. One sure knew it was a truck it rode like a truck and handled like a truck. Even though I had a air bag/shock system king pin the chucking was still very bad at times. Moved to low end gasser the ride was some much more enjoyable even DW was happy. Moved to older diesel pusher and the ride was better. For us there were so many advantages to moving up to a class A over the 5th wheel set up. Ride was just one of many, over all convenience related to class A traveling. Dogs love it as does the cat! good luck

RE: Dometic NDA1402 Cooling Fin Heating Element

The rig in your signature says 03, I would say the frig could use some help. In my 07 the frig (norcold) up and died while on a trip. I also did not want to really replace the frig. I did however looks at replacing with residential ones. To much wood work for my to make it look like it belonged so that was out. A new norcold same size would mean taking the windshield out to get the frig in. So that was out. I ended up going with new cooling unit from JC Refrigeration. https://jc-refrigeration.com/ I changed my old cooling unit for their 120v only unit as I do not boondock and am alway plugged in. I am very happy with the unit and JC customer support is spot on great folks to work with. Good Luck

RE: 2007 Winne Journey 39Z pasenger window - Moves on its own

On my 07 Meridian (sister to journey) the mirror does somewhat the same thing. If it is the whole mirror part that moves there are screws that can be tightened. By removing the protection caps the set screws can be seen. If its the wind that moves just the mirror, mine does that also. I have tryed to move the whole mirror assembly so the wind may not catch the mirror. That seemes to help somewhat. I have no idea of the rod you are talking about. Good Luck

RE: Memphis to Springfield, MO

As living in Branson we've traveled that route afew times. You really have two choices both end up on hwy 65. The more laid back, yet alittle longer is I40 through Little Rock and meeting hwy 65 at Conway. The part around Little Rock is not bad traffic wise. The other route is hwy 64 out of Memphis to Bad Knob then hwy 167 to hwy 36 at Searcy then onto hwy 124 to hwy 65. This is a true ozark mountain driving experience. The road is great the scenery is great its a sit back enjoy whats around you. Very doable with many curves. Good Luck

RE: THOR VEGAS 24.1 USED - SERVICE CONTRACTS

I have had and was pleased with Good Sam Extended Service. I have heard that FMCA has a good plan. I would not go with dealers plan as they tie you up in to many things. With GS I can say you will beable to get the work done anywhere that excepts the plan. Thats important if you are traveling away from home alot. All you have to do is call them up and they will give you a quote, you can decide from there. It seems you really like this coach which is good. It seems the dealer is not very knowledgeable on its condition. Thats understandable, I would (if possible) get an independent company to do an RV inspection before you sign on the dotted line. This will give you some reassurance of the condition of the coach. It will also give you a punch list of things the dealer could fix when doing the PDI. Good Luck and safe travels

RE: New propane tank

So what size tank are you looking for, as there are many types and sizes. As for the rust can you not sand or wire brush it off and repaint? Check this site out may help; https://www.rvpartscountry.com/RV-Propane-Tanks_c_387-2-1.html

RE: What to do about fire damage

Its only my thoughts and opinion on this. As you did not mention the brand it leaves us kind of up in the air. So if I understand your post you are in need of replacing the wireharnes that was damaged. Now there are multitude of wireharnes in your unit for alot of different things. Some more important than others. The factor repair folks may have a better idea on how to fix that. But on the other hand the "whole" harness is not damaged just replace the section of wires. Your local shop can do that. Is there other items that need replace along with the wireharness. Those items can be ordered from any repair shop. As for Camping World each one is different. I had work done from the one in Cedar Falls Iowa and was very pleased. I think no matter who you take it to large or small plan on not having your rig for along time. I live where we only have a small rv shop, I would trust them far more than larger shops. But thats something you will have to decided. I would make a few road trips (car) visit and talk with everybody about the problems and get their feed back. Take pictures of problem with you to show. I had a fire in the front of our DP last year that melted most of the insulation off the wires, plus a few other parts. I did not replace the whole harness just the wire. Reason I said that is your smaller shop may be a little more concerned on making it right. Good Luck

RE: Road side assistance

I would go with Good Sam, I have only used them for flat tires with not complaints. I am confused on the postings about towing however here is a link to the GS towing comparison page. There three levels all have towing so I do not understand the other posts. Please explain https://www.goodsamroadside.com/compare/index.cfm

RE: How to Find Parks?

I have been using RV Life Campground Reviews for years. I like it as not only can you find the place it also gives many years of reviews for the campground you are looking at https://campgrounds.rvlife.com/ The others out there are good also rvparky was mentioned. Good Sam also has a sight. I think once you find a sight you like and is user friendly to you, you will stick with that sight. Good Luck

RE: Onan Marquis 5500 Model 5.5 BGMFA11578G

Voltage for the battery has a lot to do with the starting process. You did not say if it was gas or diesel, maybe that does not make much difference however. I know when my diesel gen. does not want to start I have to start the rv motor to help build up the batteries. That seems to help, also if diesel it will be common for that as it takes awhile for the glow plugs to heat up enough.

RE: New cooling unit or refurbish?

I can not relate to the Dometic frig. but I can tell you my experience with the Norcold. The cooling unit went out, so I did the normal looking around at options. To replace the whole frig would have cost way to much plus the unit would have had to come in through the windshield. Putting a residential frig was not an option as it would have required to much wood work to make it look like it belonged. I do not do good with woodwork. So I looked at what JC Refrigeration had to offer. https://jc-refrigeration.com/ I ended up with their 120v unit as I never boondock and am always plugged in. The removal of the old cooling unit and install of the new unit went very easy. JC Refrigeration provided great info for both removel and install plus on the spot help if needed. I would go with them again if needed, I believe its worth looking into. Good Luck
