RE: Backup camera failure

Diligence has its reward! Congratulations O.k., I contacted the camera manufacturer. They were very helpful. The lights are all fixed, as is the camera. I managed to splice all the wiring. And, I covered the wires in a clear plastic sleeve called Critter Cord that smells awful and is designed to prevent pets from chewing electrical cords. Other than that I’ve got my fingers crossed. But, for now all is back to normal. Keeps life from getting boring?

RE: 2003 Newmar Dutch star help #2

We had a problem that was caused by a kink in the fuel line that was caused when the generator tray was pulled out and pushed in. The link broke the line slightly and allowed air to enter the fuel line. Www rerouted the fuel line and the problem went away the air in the fuel line caused the generator to stop. Took us months to figure it out. Check the entire fuel line to the generator. GOOD LUCK

I would look here for locations RV Service Folks, I just took the plunge on an old 1983 Allegro 23. Does anyone have any recommendations on a reliable/trustworthy inspection/repair facility near Millersville, Maryland? I plan to do a number of upgrades/restorations on the inside, but I want to make sure things are good/safe on the drivetrain/brakes/mechanical etc. Any advice/recommendations are appreciated. Thank you.

RE: Tiers of Motohomes

For a 20 year old MH IMHO I would look at the interior and external condition, then does it have the items I want that are most important to your wife. Then I would ask to see service records. Check recalls by VIN . Then if I am still interested I strongly urge you to have the engine and transmission inspection by a trusted dealer even if cost me a couple 100 bucks! Where if fits in the manufactures line up is immaterial at this age!

RE: Slide out room props

Several years ago a church bus converted from a school bus has the slide at window height sliced along the side by a RV slide out that extended while it was driven. We always used slide out locks!

RE: Taos and Santa Fe with 37’ Taos motorhome

X 2 Yup in those wonderful places, you have to understand that the downtown was laid out many centuries ago. Do not expect parking downtown for a motorhome. But, there is some public transportation and certainly Uber. DON'T MISS THEM. BTW, we spend summers in Angel Fire, just east of Taos. 8,400'+ makes for a very nice summer climate.

RE: Taos and Santa Fe with 37’ Taos motorhome

Bet it didn’t park a 40 footer on the Taos or Sante Fe plaza, we did it in a 40 foot Motorhome. The problem is I don't have a toad right now, so I have to drive my 37' around the town, how ease it is to find parking on the street for 37' motorhome?

RE: Class A Towing trailer with car and Motorcycle

Great quote Not exactly the same thing but I have a 30ft enclosed and can haul my 65 442 race car with the Smart car in front of it. I also have a 20ft open Featherlite and can put the Smart on there in front sideways and the car fits behind it. At the race track there are all types of stacker trailers with cars, golf carts, 2nd cars, street cars, etc up top. If you can afford a Vette, a class A, and a Harley you can afford a good trailer.

RE: Starting search for 20 year old Lux coach. Have questions

We ordered our 2002 DSDP and I spoke to a Newmar rep and he told us to order the TPO roof and not fiberglass. We never have had a problem. My wife and I will be looking for a rig in 2023 or 2024. I have begun the search of luxury coaches in the 2000-2008 years. After that I think they are getting above what I want to spend. I am keeping my eye on Beaver, Foretravel, American Coach, Nemar, Monoco, etc. I have been searching forums and reading a lot. The question of roofs came up as I just got down from my current Lance maintaining the seams around the items sticking through the roof. I am wondering about the coach roofs and the chance of leaks. I understand the Eagle from American Coach had a fiberglass roof. Are there others that may have a fiberglass roof? Or maybe others that have a roof that I dont have to worry about leaking. I am used to truck campers and 5the wheels. So other than the old Winnebago Chief I owned for 1 season, I am new to the Class A. Thanks, Ben

RE: I have no 12V power to my toad signal and brake lights.

RE: Anybody launching a boat with a Class A?

We have done it both ways with the rear hitch and a front hitch.hen in the back just a twitch of the steering wheel moves the boat feet because of the tail end swing. rear and side cameras help a lot. Practice in a big empty parking lot

RE: Good sam platinum roadside assist

We have had both Good Sam and Coach Net and found CN to be superior. Had a flat tire, inside dual in my storage spot. Called good sam a repair man was sent , I won’t go into all the problems with the service, eventually the valve stem was tightened all ok . I paid the repair cost 183.00 or so. I’m unsure if good sam will reimburse me. Anyone have the answers. Thanks

RE: Storing With or Without Full Gas Tank

We always store full even in the season if we are down for a few weeks.

RE: First front tire blow out....

Do you have a TPMS and if so did it give you any warning. In theory ours alarmed after a 20% lose of air pressure. In your case this could have been instantaneous.

RE: I did not know

So who did the servicing every 25,000 or 50,000 miles. Did or do you use Allison specified approved synthetic transmission fluid

RE: Best way to sell the coach

I learned, in a time long long ago that time forget, that in order to make a deal you needed a willing seller and a willing buyer. This assumes no duress by either party. The seller did not get more than it was worth and who knows if he had waited for the other buyers to make an offer he may have received even more $$$$$$. He may have received more than he thought it was worth or some agent said it was worth.Facebook is the most insidious application in the world! My buddy just sold his 12 year old TT for 3k more than it was worth on Facebook marketplace... AND it was the 1st person to come and look... within 12 hours of posting He had 6 or 7 others that wanted to come look that same night...

RE: Let’s hear your best MPG and driving style ?

Cat said that the best MPG is achieved when you are running at the RPM WHERE THE HIGHEST TORQUE IS ACHIEVED. We ran a 100 PRM above that suggestion. For us that was ~60mpg! We found lower elevations resulted in higher MPG. When the sulfur content of the fuel was reducing we lost ~0.3 to 0.5 mpg. We log all fuel mileage. We also set Tire pressure per the tire manufacturers recommendation based on 4 corner weights. We ran a TPMS to monitor tire pressure. We rarely utilized full acceleration starts.

RE: New Class A Winnebago owners

Cat said best mileage is to drive at the RPM WITH THE HIGHEST TORQUE for us that was ~60 mph and we ran 100 RPM higher that rated highest torque. We found lower elevations yielded higher mpg. We also ran with the tire pressure as recommended by the manufacture suggested based on the four corner weights
