RE: Help, broke down-.over heating Cat 350 near Needles CA

It appears to be the clutch fan that has failed. They are tracking down the parts. Thanks everyone Tempest. UGH! $$$ sorry.....Dennis

RE: Help, broke down-.over heating Cat 350 near Needles CA

RV Service Reviews Click on the link above and you can search for repair shops nearby, just in case you don't like the facility they took you to. BTW, they appear to be the only diesel shop in Needles. FYI, you'll have Needles, California; Laughlin, Nevada; and 4 in Bullhead City, Arizona.....Dennis

RE: Missula, MT on US 12 to Lewiston/Clarkston, WA

Rarely do we use the freeways, only back roads. We did the exact same route a few years ago with no problems whatsoever. You'll enjoy the trip it you take your time to do so. Don't be in a hurry and be considerate of the drivers behind you. Also, I wouldn't go in the winter due to rain and snow.....Dennis

RE: Help, broke down-.over heating Cat 350 near Needles CA

If it's only a belt, it should be an easy fix. They should be available at any auto parts store, even on a Sunday. Reach out to Brett Wolfe, (Wolfe10). He's a go to guy for Cat engines. Send him a PM as I'm not sure he's on yet. Best of luck and let us know the final outcome.....Dennis

RE: Trade-ins... when did things change?

The only time I tried to 'trade in' my old coach, the dealer suggested I buy his rig, he'd take mine to the wholesale auction for me and give me whatever he got for it. Needless to say, I didn't deal with that dealer. Sell it yourself, you'll be $$ ahead....Dennis

RE: oil change

Just beware of Speedco's "up charges" that they don't run by you until the bill is tallied up. Ran up my bill to over $400. Never had them do that. They always ask before doing anything to the coach. You have to witness them torquing the drain plug. I've even been invited to go into the pit with them to look underneath the rig. Perhaps different locations have different rules, dunno. One should always be vigilant....Dennis

RE: oil change

$300 @ Speedco. Includes filters, oil and fuel, lube and radiator check... as you can see from the above posts, though, each one seems to differ in what maintenance you are doing. Some engines require 15qts/oil, some 28. Mine takes 32. It's worth it to me to let someone else do the work. Draining 32 qts of oil means I'd have to drain it probably 8 times to complete it, move those 32 qts 32 old milk jugs, then cart them to the recycle center. Not really time nor labor efficient. I'd rather play golf, cards, play on the computer or take a nap, which I can do while they're changing my oil...:).....Dennis

RE: Repairs and Maintence

To the OP. I put about $500/month into a 'maintenance' account, for my good friend, Justin Case. Oil changes including oil and fuel filters, lube and radiator test will run you about $300/yr. If you respect your coach and take care of things as necessary, you'll find your yearly expenses are much much less. Letting things go will cost you more in the long run. I spend about $750/yr. for maintenance. The rest is saved for expenses like tires, $4500 every 7 years, major tuneups every 100,000 miles etc......and yes, entry level coaches will cost more in the long run due to quality of materials and build, including fit and finish, of the original coach.....Dennis

RE: Repairs and Maintence

I am debating whether to buy a MH or just build a house in the yuma or phoenix area. don't know which would be less a problem Depends...if you build your house in Yuma then decide you like Phoenix better, you have to build another house. If you're in your RV in Yuma, you simply turn the key. Just sayin.... :)...Dennis

RE: RV Parks in Tucson

Maricopa County parks are a great choice but the do not have sewers. We prefer Usery Mountain Park as it's only 5 mins from shopping yet out in the middle of the desert. 30 miles of hiking trails etc. Lost Dutchman is nice but sites are much much closer together. If you want/need sewer hookups, Fort McDowell has a campground adjacent to their casino. Otherwise there are way too many camping places to list here. You'll have to narrow down your area a bit. Lots to do in the greater Phx area. Remember though, winter in AZ means the temps drop all the way to 74 degrees with lows in the 50s at times. Interpret that as MANY MANY SNOWBIRDS. Plan accordingly and don't get discouraged if the park of your choosing tells you they're full. Go on to the next one. You might want to start a separate post on Phoenix. Here's a couple shots of Usery Mountain Park...Dennis https://i.imgur.com/dgxTGoXl.jpg https://i.imgur.com/JyuD9x7l.jpg

RE: Golf Cart or A G M 12 volt Batteries

Your post begs a question. Your coach has two battery banks. You will have two TWELVE VDC batteries that start the coach. Your house system will have anywhere from 4-6 SIX VDC batteries. DO NOT CONFUSE THE TWO. You asked which you should buy, AGM or Golf Cart. AGM batteries come in both 12VDC and 6VDC configurations. AGMs are way more expensive but they are maintenance free and as pointed out, can be mounted any way you choose. GC2, Golf car batteries, 6VDC have to be mounted with caps up and need to be checked periodically to ensure the water levels are correct. Personally, I bought mine at Sams Club for about $100ea. I put a teaspoon of mineral oil in each one and found I've never needed to top them off....Dennis

Pandi, below are some things you might want to explore. I have pics at all the locations so if you see something that perks your interest and want more info, please ask. We prefer staying away from the big cities and associated crime and traffic which is why we chose Amado.

RE: RV Parks in Tucson

How long do you plan on being in Tucson? Lots to do if you have the time. Let us know how long you're going to be there and we'll give you a list. We stayed in Amado at the old Greyhound Dog Race Track. Excellent campground but about half hour south of Tucson away from the big city....Dennis

RE: $1 difference between gas and diesel, WHY ??

:) Hi, "Because they can." Exactly. It's private enterprise and they charge what the market will bear and it's a 'must have' so it's a stick it to you commodity. Hope it feels good. NOT exactly! The REAL reason is not because they CAN, it's because Californian's will PAY it. Until the real voters in Cali, that's the voters less the illegals, felons and the dead, step up at the polls, and demand better representation, the tax collectors will continue to have a field day. Someone has to pay for dam repairs and a bullet train to nowwhere....Dennis BYW - Diesel in Arizona is $2.49/gal. Gasoline is $2.08/gallon

RE: Thinking of removing Hydraulic levelers.

That's why I don't like extended warranties. Never had one. Money ahead. What do extended warranties have to do with the OP's problem. The problem was with the repair facility not the one paying the bill. Extended warranties could be worth their weight in gold. I've had two and both saved me tons of money. Anyway, to the OP I think pushing 80 you'll be sorry you tossed the levelers. Follow Doug's advice and find a repair shop that knows what they're doing. The one you've been going to are using your coach as a training unit - and at YOUR expense. Hooking up the batteries wrong was the fault of the dummy that hooked them up, not your coach. The best advice would be to pick and choose who works on your rig by doing some research before dropping it off. Ask for references. Another way is to ask on RV.Net for help in choosing a repair shop.....Dennis
