RE: Letting Go

We take the grandkids with us. Full timing 7 years now. They've spent the past 7 yrs traveling the country with us. That said, we only take the two oldest, they're now 15 and 16 but still want to travel. They've visited 42 States and loved every one. Since they live in separate parts of Ca. their summer vacations start at different times. Once they know when their vacation starts they ask where we will be and their parents fly them to the nearest airport. We pick them up and they travel with us until their vacation is over then they either fly back home or their parents come to meet us, spend a week or so depending on where we are and then head home. Nothing beats camping several months with your grandkids. Think of the memories they've taken back to school with them....Dennis

RE: Tag axles

On mine, very little adjustment makes a big difference at the axles....Dennis

RE: I 65

Too many variables. Length of rig, weight distribution, air pressure, speed, etc. etc. I don't find too many roads bumpy...YMMV....Dennis

RE: Tag axles

Not sure I agree with the "adjustable from driver's seat". Adjustable, YES. But having "balanced" many tag axle coaches by finely tuning tag axle PSI using individual wheel position scales, I would think VERY few could do this by feel. And, a mistake here could easily overload an axle and cause a blow out. To clarify, Doug, I did not say "driver's SEAT. I said the tag should be adjustable by the driver. This is different from a switch on the dash. In fact I know of no mfg that provides this "feature". Many tag axle coach mfgs only allow the mfg or their rep to adjust the tag. Most high end Monaco's allow the driver to do so. Mine has a gauge in the engine compartment that allows me to do just that. I have adjusted it on occasion after weighing my coach...as always, thanks for your valuable insight and allowing me to clarify my statement....Dennis

RE: Tag axles

Two things about a tag that I feel are "must haves". First is liftable as it shortens your turning radius and the second is it should be driver adjustable. This means you, as a driver should be able to adjust the amount of pressure placed on the tag at any given time. This allows you to adjust the axle weights on your coach. Heavier the tag the heavier the steer axle, lighter the tag, the heavier the drive axle. Important when weighing your coach and adjusting the handling of it.....Dennis

RE: Motorhome registration tag and tax cost by state

So many things to consider and license fees are but a small portion of that. There are but a few insurance carriers that offer full timer insurance. Sure, you can fib or 'forget' to tell them you're a full timer, but I wouldn't want to have to pay the piper come claim time. We use National Interstate and it's about $1500/year. Less coverage means less premium, so yes, you can get it cheaper. A simple phone call will get you a personalized quote. Pennington County was one of the last no wheel tax counties, but I believe they enacted that this past year. Don't forget voter registration and driver's licenses. You must show proof of a one night stay to renew your DL in SD. Everything else can be done by mail. As for cost to register the vehicles, I can only compare SD to Ca and Az and they are cheaper than either of those states. As mentioned above, be sure you know and understand how residency will affect your health coverage....best of luck.....Dennis

RE: Towing a Jeep Liberty

Some depends on your preferences. Here's my opinion since you asked for it. Assuming money is a factor in your life, to get the most bang for your buck this is what I would do. 1. Base plate - Stick with the known mfg. Remco, BlueOx etc. My preference is BlueOx mainly because I've had excellent results from their service personnel at rallies etc. 2. Tow bar - again personal preference. I've used several but the absolute best I've found is the ReadyBrute from NSA. It also incorporates the ReadyBrake system which is a proportional braking system so no external braking system is required. No extra 'stuff' to plug in, no extra 'stuff' to wire up, etc. etc. 3. ReadyStop - This little jewel runs a cable between your coach and toad. If the toad disconnects from the coach it will stop in it's tracks. This prevents the toad from potentially sailing across the fwy and hitting someone head on. 4. Wiring - again personal preference. You can use the toad's wiring system and tap into it with no issues but you'll need a diode to prevent back feeding, you can add separate bulbs by drilling a hole in the existing tail light housing and wire a complete separate system, or you can buy the magnetic light bars from Harbor Freight that you place on the roof of the toad. I prefer to use the Jeep's existing wiring and run it through there. That's it. If you're not doing the work yourself, expect to pay about $1000 for the materials and about $500 in labor for the install. Best of luck....Dennis Base Plate Tow Bar - Ready Brute Ready Stop - Emergency Breakaway System

RE: replacement fridge

While not a Dometic, I replaced the Norcold 1200 which is about the same size. I did it myself in a campground in three days...Dennis Samsung Install

RE: Tow bar

Tow Bar - ReadyBrute Elite Base Plate - Blue Ox If you go the ReadyBrute route, your braking system is incorporated in the tow bar assembly so there's not extra "stuff" to install and hook up. That said, whatever system you choose, please look at the ReadySTOP addition. It's on their website I've provided below. The ReadySTOP addition will STOP the towed vehicle in the event it disconnects from the towing vehicle..$109.00...Dennis ReadyBrute Tow Bar ReadySTOP

RE: Would you drive in the snow?

Good decision to wait. Something else to consider. While I have driven in snow/rain/slush/wind etc. and do ok with all of them, you MUST consider OTHERS that may not have. It's the OTHER guy you have to worry about....IMO....Dennis

RE: RV maintenance on a 1996 Monaco Dynasty

I added a macerator pump to mine..one of the better additions. Mine had the center hall and I put a whole house vacuum in the small compartment next to the ice maker. I also added the ADD-A-ROOM which the grandkids loved during the summer months when they came to stay with us. I'll see if I can find some pictures for you later today. I believe they are on a separate hard drive.....Dennis

RE: I don't know what this is.

The Manabloc has a small plastic wrench that allows you to turn each of the valves on, off or in between. Monaco installed them on most of their luxury coaches, Dynasty and above....as Old Biscuit said, it's a water distribution panel.....Dennis

RE: Cummins Service

Cummins Southern Plains 7045 N. Loop E. Fwy Houston, Texas 77028 (713) 679-2220 Excellent service, knowledgeable technicians. They have electrical service available but they will lock you in overnight if you need to leave your rig. They reinstalled my turbo and did an excellent job....Dennis

RE: Chevrolet HHR toad exhaust leak

Excellent advice. Thanks for the heads up about the warranty angle. Covered under warranty is always good to hear...exhaust leaks are dangerous too, especially in cold weather.....Dennis
