RE: Wheel "Simulators" (covers) on Duallies

Lost the center cap on my dually last week. $110.00 later and it looks normal again. But, now Im gun shy about losing another one.

RE: Got new rear tires and now my truck sways on the highway

Its not uncommon for new tires to behave badly when new. But.... You have the rear tires aired to 85PSI? Is that not already 5PSI over the max posted on the tires sidewalls? You have mixed tire types on the truck? You put the new tires on the rear? I think you need to drive across a set of scales to see what your weights truely are. Put the new tires on the front, unless this is a dually. Unless its a dually and even then it is likely your exceeding the RAWR, and also the trucks GVWR.

RE: Possible 4 season 5ers and minimum requirements?

In the south? Just about any RV would work OK. For the very few days a year you get cold temps just go for it. Now, if you really want a good RV for full timing, start looking at Teton, Mobile Suites and the like. 50A will allow you to use 2 AC units at the same time, plus other stuff.

RE: Newbie...what are typical annual maintenance costs?

50 bucks a year IF your doing everything yourself. A thousand or more if your paying some punk to do it for you.

RE: Australians buying a Motorhome in USA

Be aware. Sales taxes on purchase is state by state. California has really high sales taxes, Oregon has none. Do your research before making any decisions on where to buy.

RE: Wildcat Frame Issues

Lippert frame flex issues seem to generally be located in the pin box area. And no, there is no way to inspect it without opening up the nose.

RE: Carrier AC blowing breaker

High amperage current draw. Bad motor is the likely cause. But high compressor pressure could also cause it. Since Carrier no longer makes RV products probably your most cost effective solution is replacement.

RE: Questions on purchasing campers from dealers.

Thunder RV in Lagrande is the closest dealer to the Northwood factory if your looking at Arctic Fox. Also Apache Camping centers in Portland and Seattle are interested. Host campers are built in Bend and appear to be good. But you would have to check for dealers.

RE: Air Conditioner "click"

Go up on the roof, take the four screws holding the shroud in place off, lift the shroud off and have a look.

RE: 12V Inline System Fuse

Actually what your describing is a 30A auto reset circuit breaker, not a fuse. Fuses are a one time item. Do you need two? No, but I suspect one is to protect the battery, the second one to protect something else. Only way to know for sure is to disconnect one and see what does not work.

RE: Protecting Front Cap Paint and Decals from Fading

Does the 3M stuff have any UV protection built in? If not you will still end up with an oxidized front cap to deal with. Go buy the best RV/Marine or aircraft wax you can find. Wax it thoroughly and often, and it will look as good the day you sell it as the day you bought it.

RE: I-5 to 97 on Oregon Hwy 138

By middle Sept things usually start to freeze up east of the cascades. So yea, parks start closing no later than Oct 1.

RE: Best fuel economy speed

Too many variables to give an answer. Motor, transmission, rear end ratio, load, tire diameter, peak torque, all play into your answer.

RE: Towing 6355lbs/Yukon designed to pull 7,300 - Need advice

GCWR minus scaled loaded ready to camp weight is? Trailers GVWR? Towing capacity as found from line 1 minus line 2 equals? Real world tou might make it work, IF the TV is empty except the driver, trailer is basically empty, no food, water, propane, clothes, dishes and you might be OK.
