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.

RE: Batteries Stolen...Now What?

I would cut the post off at the base,... I'm off to get my hacksaw, Doc. Thanks! Teach These guys don't steal them to use them. They steal them to sell for the lead. Druggies are stealing lead and copper as fast as you can replace it. OP was probably lucky they did not cut the power cord and take it too.

RE: Blue Mesa Recreational Ranch

I don't have an agenda, I just know that The Western Horizons web site has changed and that they are selling off parks, so I'd like to know that they'll still be in business in 2015. So would everyone else. You can be sure they will be collecting dues and selling memberships right up until the time they close the doors.

RE: Best material to park a 33 ft RV on grass area over winter?

I would purchase a couple rubber horse stall mats and cut them to fit. You can get them at most tractor supply or farm supply stores. I use them for jack pads and leveling blocks.

RE: Blue Mesa Recreational Ranch

Looking at a list of WHR properties on their web site, Blue Mesa is no longer a WHR property but now an affiliate what ever that means. You can see the list here Web Site

RE: For Those Who Tow: Do You Using a Braking System?

For years I never considered using a braking system. Had Class A motorhomes and towed what I considered to be light enough cars not to need one. Purchased my first 40ft diesel which should not even notice a car behind it. One trip I crested a hill at about 60 mph only to find traffic totally stopped in front of me. Panic stop requiring me to go off the side of the road. Needless to say I have had a braking system ever since.

RE: finding a outside beam on a trailer????

You might try a stud finder. Home Depot or Lowes around $10 should do the job.

RE: RV membership

All three are still around. In order to belong to either RPI or Coast to coast you must join a membership home park. If interested what ever you do avoid purchasing a Western Horizon membership as they are on the verge of bankruptcy and are selling off all their parks,

RE: Home park sold.

The "rules" state you must belong to a home park that is affiliated with C2C. However they will honor your membership until it expires. Interesting enough though, when our home park dropped C2C we went online before our membership expired and renewed for four years and they continued to honor our membership with no problems.

Sparks Marina RV Park. Actually in Sparks but Sparks and Reno are basically one in the same.

RE: I don't know what it is called.

Since you can pop the bubbles by squeezing them probably would not last too long.

RE: If you're going to fail obedience class - do it big!

Loved the video. Golden's are totally food oriented. Beautiful dog but our vet would have a fit when seeing his weight. We tried saying Daisy was just fluffy but that didn't fly.

RE: Tire Feathering after alignment

Just a thought but; when you had it aligned was the coach fully loaded including water tank etc. I once had a new coach eat a set of front tires in a little more than a thousand miles. Dealer said it had been aligned empty when built and that after loading I should have had it re-aligned.

RE: In a bind Need Furnace Help

Others may have a better idea but I think the first thing I would do is jumper around the thermostat and see if it keeps running.

No, the rain sensor will be useless. X2

RE: slide out help on holiday rambler

This actually should be a very easy fix. If you are not mechanically inclined you may want to just take the coach to a service center or at some point you have to do something for your self. You need to actually crawl into the compartment where the gear is and watch it while someone actuates the slide. At the point where things go from turning to not turning there will be either a bolt or sheer pin that is broken. Just remove the broken part and replace it. If you are not comfortable with this have a service company take care of it.
