RE: 2005 Winnebago voyage 35a

We are trading ours in soon and whoever gets it will have a top notch unit. Yours has the roof airs which is good! That is so nice to hear. Hopefully this one is good! Maybe you should send him a PM....:W:W......Dennis

RE: Timing the Purchase for a last-year's model

Congrats on going full time. That said, you might also consider where you will establish your RESIDENT State NOW. The tax savings could be significant. We were in California, (9.5%) and established our resident state as South Dakota (3%) BEFORE we purchased. Saved us over $35k. Do the math from your current state and decide if the savings are worth it. Every little bit helps.....Dennis

RE: water filter

We have a triple filter system on board but the filters are expensive. I've found by putting a whole house canister with the cheap charcoal filter at the CG spigot, the on board filters last much longer. We don't use bottled water....Dennis

RE: Full-Timing...what's your opinion...

Another take on this thread is the definition of "full timing". There are many different ideas of what full timing is. We live in our coach 10 months of the year with 2 months 'vacation' in AZ. We also have taken our oldest grandkids with us for their summer vacations. They've visited 42 of our great states. That's something few 14yr olds can say. A testament to that is they are looking forward to next summer and traveling again. Full timing can be, like us, where we rarely stay more than a week or two in any one spot. It can also be spending 3 months in one spot workcamping then moving to another for 3 months. We know some thousand trails members that simply travel from park to park every three weeks so it costs them almost nothing for CG fees. We know others who have 'leased' a site for a year or more and don't plan on going anywhere else. Others come to the States from Canada to stay 6 months here and 6 months there. Everyone is different. Parks can be what you want them to be. We've been to parks that have activities every day...participate as you see fit. Many parks, especially in the RGV, Florida and Arizona see the same folks coming year after year. You look forward to catching up on what's happened while you were apart. Besides the obvious of the full timing lifestyle being less expensive and not having to do the maintenance on the house and pool, there's also the freedom in knowing if you don't like your neighbors you can turn the key and go. If you don't like the weather, you can turn the key and go. Not all neighbors and neighborhoods are like the "Beavers", or the Andersons on Father Knows Best... How many folks have never been out of their city let alone their state ??? How many can say, let's go to San Felipe for a few months in the winter, Lake Louise for the summer, or visit Maine in the early fall...? True...this lifestyle is not for everyone, but we enjoy the freedom and the opportunities it provides....just sayin.....Dennis

RE: New AC pricing...

Fair price. I just had my front one replaced....$1900 including install, shipping and taxes. Extended warranty didn't even flinch......Dennis

RE: Full-Timing...what's your opinion...

Pretty simple solution....DO BOTH ! We sold almost everything...had a 'living' estate sale. Gave the kids what they wanted, sold most of what they didn't want and gave the rest away to charity. We then changed our resident state from California to South Dakota, bought our current coach and a mobile home in Arizona. Put enough left over furniture, tools, etc. in the mobile. Since we winter in AZ anyway, we're there 2-3 months of the year. Having the mobile lets us get out of the coach, allows me to do yearly maintenance, have any necessary repairs done to the coach and do any modifications I feel is appropriate. While we are in AZ, we have all our annual medicals/dentals done including the dog. By 3 months we are chomping at the bit to hit the road again. The mobile is looked after by neighbors and mgmt while we're away. IMHO, we have the best of both worlds......Dennis

RE: Exhaust Leak on a 400 Cummins

Black soot is the tell. Surprised your engine check light hasn't come on...maybe it's only a matter of time. You don't say what engine you have but Cummins can hook it up to their computers and tell you in a minute where it is. Meanwhile, check the vacuum line running to your exhaust brake for leaks....Dennis

RE: backing up your toad

IMHO..this is an irresponsible post by someone who should know better.....we watched a Class A pull into a pull thru spot and try to back up just a "bit". Heard a loud bang and saw both front wheels going in opposite directions....:S Can it be done,:h sure, under perfect circumstances, is it stupid to do so,:h.. without a doubt......Dennis

RE: Tough decision - Stressed out

The problem is, after being in a luxury motorhome along with our prior Montana fifthwheel, she don't like any of the trailers I've showed her.

RE: AC unit intake drips water

As I said earlier...clean the filters. One thing I forgot to mention, is run your A/C on FAN ONLY for about 20-30 minutes. That will clear out any ice that's built up on the fins. You don't have a good enough air flow, cuz your filters are dirty....Dennis

RE: Full timers MH ins

I don't believe Progressive provides full timer insurance...at least they didn't several years ago..be sure you are getting what you think you are. That said, in answer to your question, the toad is a separate policy. We have National Insurance and have been very pleased with their cost and handling of claims...multi million dollar policy cost us just under $2k/yr with diminishing deductibles...YMMV.....Dennis

RE: Head lights

Since you're going to replace it anyway, remove the entire headlight housing. Somewhere on there are part numbers. My headlights were Dodge Ram BUT aftermarket, NOT OEM. What that means is you may have to modify your housing a bit to make it fit. My rears are Lincoln Navigator but made by TYC so the OEMs will not fit..the correct replacement numbers were stamped on the housing....Dennis

RE: AC unit intake drips water

If the 'water' or condensation is dripping INSIDE the coach, it's usually because of a dirty air filter. What happens is the air cannot flow easily, thereby causing the A/C to freeze up. When the ice forms on the A/C fins, the unit struggles, the ice begins to melt and it flows inside your coach. Replace and/or clean all the filters and see if that helps. If it's leaking OUTSIDE the coach, it's simply because of the increased humidity. All three of my units have a catch basin under them with hoses that run down and out the bottom of the coach. When we are parked on a concrete pad, I made some extra drains out of PVC to pull the water off the pad. You might get up on the roof and see what you have. If there's debris in the catch basin it will not allow the water to drain off correctly. As the water builds up, it releases and appears to be more than usual. Think flash flooding...only on a very tiny scale....Dennis

RE: Staying at Walmarts and such

Doesn't proper etiquette require you to park way in the back if you want to dump your tanks while you're there....:h:h......:W......Dennis I always try to dump my tanks on their landscaping. :B I was thinking of installing one of those electronic valves on my coach...then I could dump while going down the turnpike.....especially if someone decided to tailgate the rig......:B...Dennis
