RE: Need new 245/70R19.5 tires, Thnking Sumitomo?

Sometimes people run "G" tires because that is what is in stock at the dealer. I believe "G" tires are more common than "F" at some dealers. For the SAME load, the tire pressure is the same for "F" "G" or "H" tires so I doubt if you will notice a rougher ride. The higher load rating tire just gives you a little cushion if you might overload your tires.

RE: Tv problem

A snowy picture can be from a poor cable connection. Perhaps there is a way to hook up a jumper coax cable directly from the antenna to the TV to see if that gives a clear picture. If it does, than the problem exists in your old coax cable from the antenna to the TV.

RE: Let's beat this horse once again

Keep in mind that the used RV you are looking at is for sale because the previous owner is done with it. You may wonder why. Most everyone on this forum, and other RV'rs have gone through more than one RV before they settled on their current coach, at least until the next one comes along. Take your time and do not let emotion cloud your decision. Ask yourself why this used coach is for sale. Don't buy someone else's problems and don't expect this to be your last Class A. It is just the way it is.

RE: Annual maintenance

Just ask yourself "has your maintenance schedule been successful?" Have you ever broken down on the road because of the lack of maintenance? If it ain't broke, why change? Your time and your money.

RE: Let's beat this horse once again

The floor plan is the most important since you will spend 90-95% of the time living in the coach compared to the 5-10% of the time you are driving it. Most people only put a few hundred miles per day when they travel so a little noise is not big deal. Find a floor plan that you like first and then worry about the drive train.

RE: Tv problem

The old TV and feed may be through a coax cable. The new TV may require an HDMI feed. Check to make sure that your new TV inputs are set up right.

RE: Removed over/stove...replaced with two burner induction.

We travel a lot out West in the mountains and at high altitudes. This where an induction cook top really shines. It is not affected by the high altitude as much as the propane cook top.

RE: Using Side/Rear Cameras for Security

The problem might be that the dash monitor is not easily seen if you are in bed, or anywhere else in your coach. Just walking to see the monitor may alert the "intruders" that you awake. Then again, if you being awake makes them leave, than all you have to do is just walk around if you hear a sound outside.

RE: Rear Slide Control Board died

I hope it solves your problem. For $39 vrs $1250 it seemed like a good deal to me.

RE: Rear Slide Control Board died

If the part number you gave in your first post is correct Kwikee 140464-02-700) Here is the board for $39. Control board

RE: Best floor plan for 6 sleepers

You can always tow a pop-up camper behind you for those occasions when there are extra guests.

RE: Best floor plan for 6 sleepers

Some of the toy hauler Class A coaches have drop down beds in the rear "garage" portion that is also used as a separate bedroom.

RE: Questions About People's Knowledge Of Various Issues

If you want a GM chassis with the Allison transmission, you are looking for a coach built on the W chassis, not the smaller lighter P chassis which has a GM transmission with the 8.1L. The Monaco coaches of 2003 had aluminum side walls, not fiberglass, as did a few other brands. This is not to say aluminum is better but if you are worried about fiberglass delamination, this might be your only choices. Most of the W chassis coaches have one or two slides.

RE: Steering wheel vibration

There are many things that can cause a steering wheel vibration. I doubt that it is common with ALL F53 chassis RV's. Wheel out of round, wheel out of balance, loose wheel bearing, bad shock, loose/worn suspension components, alignment, loose steering box, etc.

RE: Intermittent 12v current drop when on shore power

In my Monaco coach I have 120 volt fluorescent lights AND 12 volt lights. I believe that the converter charges at 13.8 volts and once it stops charging the battery voltage drops to closer to 12 volts, depending on the condition of the batteries. Year and Model Monaco? Doug I assume that you do not believe me when I said that my coach has both 120 volt fluorescent lights and 12 volt florescent lights. It is a 2003 Monaco Safari 3011. 2x2 light fixture with four 2' Fluorescent tubes on the kitchen ceiling tied in to the Kitchen GFI circuit.

RE: Intermittent 12v current drop when on shore power

A 50 amp RV plugs in to a 240 volt outlet. That 240 volts is split in to TWO 120 volt circuits at the RV's main panel. A 30 amp plug is 120 volts ONLY.

RE: Intermittent 12v current drop when on shore power

I would guess that this is when your Inverter/CHARGER cuts in to keep your batteries charged. The charger portion of your inverter can draw a lot of power and cause a momentary surge in amps needed. ON my inverter the charging rate is adjustible, or can even be turned off entirely.

RE: low coolant / add water?

Just make sure that you add the right coolant per your owner's manual. Not all anti-freeze mixtures are compatible and adding the wrong type can cause issues. I believe that Ford uses the green antifreeze but I would still verify to make sure.
