RE: Sewer Hose Supports

Sewer hose supports at the campsite help to protect the hose from rocks, goat heads, and other things that might puncture it. Most dump stations are concrete or blacktop and sloped well so support is not needed unless you find laying the hose on a possibly unclean spot a problem. I use chunks of gutter at the campsite and nothing at the dump stations.

RE: Why does my network adapter have to be reset so often?

What operating system are you using? I have two identical laptops sitting almost side by side. One running XP never fails the second is running Windows 7 Home Premium and it fails all the time. I have installed all available updates plus replaced the internal wireless adapter with a USB adapter. Still fails. I am beginning to think Windows 7 is the problem.

RE: Class A RV One-Way from Coast to Coast (May-June 2015)

Look into hiring a professional driver to return the coach for you. It might be the way to go. They will be bonded and insured. My son bought a coach over the internet from back east and paid a professional driver to deliver it to Washington state. Worked out good for him. Contact some of the major RV dealers where you want to end up and find out if they have delivery drivers making deliveries from the East who would be looking to get paid for a return trip rather than having to fly back.

RE: Bakersfield to Pahrump

127/178 no problem at all. Two lane road through the desert with the normal sand heaves so don't expect to drive over 55. Other than that good road, have done it many times.

RE: Rexall Aerbus opinions

I had a 32ft 98 Aerbus for several years. Probably one of the best coaches I have owned. Only reason I sold it was the wife wanted slides and we did not have any.

RE: Highway 20 Oregon

About as good as it gets going from the valley to the coast.

RE: we put down a deposit on a new-to-us 2005 Dolphin

Ok; maybe I am a little slow but, if you Pay the $899 does that mean they will fix anything found wrong at the agreed upon purchase price? Is there any warranty if they say something is good and it fails in X number of days? First off I think a good independent survey by a tech of your choice might be more in your favor. Next if you get some quotes for an independant survey and they are offering some type of fix/warranty will they meet the quote? Seems to me $899 to check out a coach they really want to sell you is a little steep. Just wondering but if this "unbiased" survey showed the coach had major issues would you still have to pay for it even if you don't purchase the coach?

RE: under sink filtration water discolored

Only time I had a similar problem bluish/blackish water the carbon filter had broken down and was putting the carbon in the water.

RE: Slides stored in or out?

In. Your not using it and by having them open you just open more area to sun, rain etc. which will cause it to deteriorate faster. When loading we open slides as needed to access closets, etc.

RE: should I consider older diesel pusher?

you asked "should I consider older diesel pusher? " The answer is a definite yes! For this age coach I think the main thing to look for is service records. People are throwing all kinds of off the wall prices out there. It's worth what ever you are willing to pay for it. The coach itself looks good in the pictures and if after driving it you like it, spend the money to have it checked out by an expert then, make your decision. Personally I like it and if it checked out good I would start negotiating. Naturally you start so low you are being obnoxious and work up from there. Remember what ever you offer they won't offer it lower, and never never be afraid you will be offending them!

RE: Passport America Campgrounds

It is a cheap way to travel but most of their parks that we have stayed in were not what you would call five star. Still I consider it a very worthwhile investment.

RE: US 191 in Eastern Arizona between Clifton & Alpine

Did it with a 40ft motorhome towing a car only because we did not know any better. Since we survived I have to say it is doable but I would not do it again.

None really. You need to go to a scale and get loaded weight then go to tire manufacturers charts for correct PSI.

RE: Carl G Washburne State Park in September

School will have already started and the weekend crowd will be winding down on Sunday. Doubt that you will have any problem.

RE: Extended Service Plans

Our 08 Endeavor came with a 4 year no deductible extended warranty since we bought it new in 2010 after HR/Monaco went under. In the four years it was in effect we never took a trip that something major did not break and I am sure the repairs were way more than the cost of the extended warranty. The warranty expired in June and since then we have put almost eight thousand miles on the coach with absolutely no problems. Coincidence? I think not!!

RE: The death of a motorhome

I have an even more odd one to consider. Over a year ago a distant neighbor who I only have a slight acquaintance with purchased a used class A diesel. He paid to have several modifications made to the interior like adding a desk, larger flat screen TV etc. He then took delivery and the motorhome was put in storage. About 3 months later he put all new batteries in it as it would not start. This motorhome has never left the storage area since he purchase it. To the best of my knowledge both he and his wife are both in good health and have been retired for several years. What a waste!

RE: ABS Light

Nowadays almost no service center will do anything without being able to pull computer codes. Any reasonable home-brew mechanic would pull and clean the sensors before doing anything else. A fairly quick and easy remedy in most cases.

RE: Anyone ever hear of a Vogue III Luxery motorhome?

Back in the 80s Vogue was one of THE motorhomes to own. Not sure I would pay that much for it. If it is in decent shape I personally would offer around 10. At that age service records are important. Check the age of the tires as they most likely will need to be replaced a somewhat major expense. Will probably also need all new belts and hoses.
