RE: 45' A Class Diesel Pusher

About those roads...I don't think the good folks that design the State Parks in California have never been in an RV. Instead they like to make the roads pretty narrow and "enhance" them by placing huge boulders, just high enough to reach your storage bins yet low enough to be out of your line of sight, along every curve and campsite...:M......Dennis

RE: TPMS Alert: Tire Pressure Too High?

Do your tires have MAX PSI stamped on them? If so, if the tires do not exceed that pressure, you're ok. If they do, then that's a problem. Temps are another issue altogether. Too hot indicates an issue, (bearing, caliper hang up etc). Taking no action on a heated wheel can cause fire...not a pleasant outcome...Dennis

RE: Propane Tank Holder - Almost a disaster

You could have used a fiber lock nut which would have prevented the nut from backing off but seems that you fixed it. Good thing that there was minimal damage. But that would defeat the purpose of the wing nut....they used the wing nut because it was difficult to tighten any regular nut easily. Personally, if it's really necessary to remove the tank to use it, then I'd redesign the holder. I wouldn't want the propane tank to be loose in any configuration and it sounds like you've simply tightened the theft cable so it won't reach the ground. That will prevent the tank from slamming on the ground but it won't prevent it from coming loose. Look at Lowe's or Home Depot in the hdwe section in those little drawers they have there. They should have a self locking plastic knob with a brass nut inside that might solve your issue. Another solution would be to drill a small hole in the screw portion, which would allow you to put the wing nut on then lock it in place with a locking pin. (see pics) Good luck and safe travels....Dennis http://i.imgur.com/83TTEfkl.jpg http://i.imgur.com/Q8boOGJl.jpg

RE: Help with DP for Full Timing

A quick observation and then some suggestions...have you noticed most of the responses have come from Monaco owners? To the OP...Ivy pretty much summed everything up, but use caution when looking at the CrankyApe site, or any other for that matter. Most of their coaches are repos or insurance gigs. That TS he referred has a salvage title.:E We had a 40' non tag Dynasty before we purchased our current coach. The handling difference was night and day. The tag is more stable and easier to drive in all driving conditions. As mentioned, Monaco's S chassis is one of the best built. Eight of the ten air bags are placed outboard the frame rails giving a much smoother, more comfortable ride. They are also one of the few builders that offer the owner/driver the option of adjusting the pressure in the tag. Turn a small gauge in the engine compartment and you'll increase the pressure on the tag. This allows you to adjust the weight on all three axles. Other mfg have to be done manually at a service facility. Make sure any tag axle coach you're looking at can have the tag LIFTED from the driver's seat. Lifting the tag during turns in a campground or parking lot, eliminates the scuffing/wearing of the tires. It also shortens your turning radius. Monaco went bankrupt, was acquired by Navistar and later sold to Allied Recreation Group who also purchased Fleetwood through their bankruptcy. Allied is in business with service facilities in Coburg, Oregon and Decatur, Indiana. For your budget, I would look hard at any of the Monaco/Holiday Rambler lines. IMO, look at the luxury coaches only...i.e. Dynasty, Executive, Signature. These three have the S steel chassis. Anything lower on the food chain have a semi-monocoque chassis and consist of an aluminum alloy. Look for all wood construction inside. Is the interior screwed together or glued/stapled? Is the fit/finish up to your standards? What about sound proofing? Have someone stand outside the coach and talk in a normal voice. Can they be heard? In ours, they cannot. Here's a list of must haves from our perspective: 1. Decent engine specs. Minimum for a 45'..450HP - range 450-600. 2. AquaHot - wife likes long showers, almost instant unlimited hot water. 3. Residential fridge - although any absorption fridge can be changed out. I did ours last year at a campground for less than $1500. 4. Most other must haves come with any high end luxury coach such as macerators, electric hose and power cord reels, Johnny Beds, 10,000w gensets, solar panels etc. Finally, look at PPL Houston's website. They now have three locations and most of their coaches are on consignment. They offer FLOOR PLANS to look at. This will help you decide which models/makes to choose from and narrow your search. Once you've narrowed your search, be sure to look at their SOLD section. They list the sold prices from the last 18 months or so. This will give you a pretty good indication of the true value of any rig you're considering. Best of luck in your search....Dennis Monaco Coach PPL Motorhomes

RE: Texas weather in June

Since you're from California, you know about the 4 seasons that occur every day within the State. Texas is no different. Lots of different weather depending on where you lay your head for the night....Dennis

RE: Refugio Oil Spill

Reports say Refugio was evacuated and is now closed...probably through the holiday weekend. Carpenteria, being on higher ground shouldn't be affected although the beach most likely will be closed. Cleanup is supposed to take about 3 days. Fortunately, it was a relatively small spill...21,000 gallons....Dennis

He was at a WalMart...they carry acetone, iodine, toluene, and all kinds of other "needy" stuff.....the fact the guy was simply walking around gathering items makes me wonder what he was really doing when the thing blew up..my immediate response would have been to call 911...:h.....Dennis

RE: Fiver with Nostalgia

The trailer kind of looks like a converted horse trailer with the lines. Very cool setup though. I was disappointed that the story basically said nothing. I would love to know more about it and see the interior. I totally agree...I've searched looking for more info but was unsuccessful....Dennis
