RE: New Air Leveling/suspension Bags

I've over 75,000 miles on my coach and find the ride as smooth as silk, most of the time. Maybe my expectations are lower than yours, dunno. The 10 air bag outboard system, IMHO is one of the best in the industry. If you're concerned, have your shocks and air bags checked by a reputable service center. Your air bags should last for a very long time....Dennis

RE: Whats the best car to tow ??

Two different thoughts....ease of TOWING....Jeep, Equinox, Saturn, Geo Trackers, even the Suzuki Samurai....however, if you want to open Pandora's box, talk about which TOWED Vehicle provides the BEST and most COMFORTABLE ride! Add to that which one(s) have the most INTERIOR room....good luck....:B:B....Dennis

RE: New to RVing... need help with fresh water filling

While I admit I'm not familiar with your rig, the manual certainly specifies what you're supposed to do to fill the tank. According to Page 23, you simply turn the valve 1/4 turn to fill the tank. If you're doing that and it's not filling, I was simply suggesting that you start with the valve. The valve's probably original so it's at least 22 yrs old. I'd take it apart and see how it works...that said, why not bypass the PUMP and see if the tank fills. If it does then you problem may be that there needs to be a "Y" so that the valve when turned 1/4 turn fills the FW tank and when closed the fresh water is fed to the pump. I hope that's clear...if not, let me know or send me a PM....Dennis

RE: Campground Question

The reason I am not naming this park is because I feel the owner does not know what is going on and why hurt him when he plays no part?.. I have worked at places that dealt mostly in cash and I have had a front row seat to some of the games that were played...If anything I feel sorry for the owner and just trying to educate others . Like the old saying goes, We screwed the last guy and passed the savings on to you... Trick is not to be the last guy... What "others" are you trying to educate..:h....the only education needed here seems to be to either leave a sign that 'your' campsite is occupied or tell the office you're returning. You COULD have shared with the office when you checked in that you'll be taking your rig to the museum the next day so you're site will be unoccupied until you RETUN. But, that might have been too easy.... IMHO, get over it....you're not going to educate anyone unless you name the park so people can decide for themselves....I understand a rant, done em myself, but once the rant's over, it's over. Let it go....you continue to 'defend' your rant....it's done.....Dennis

RE: New to RVing... need help with fresh water filling

Maybe it's as simple as your fill valve is bad. Remove it and check to ensure it's working properly...Personally, I wouldn't try to reinvent the wheel....just sayin....Dennis

RE: Campground Near Chicago

We stayed at ChicagoLand KOA, now known as Chicago Northwest...clicky below. It's a nice place for a family event and has FULL HOOKUPS! There's a wild west tourist trap right next door too. Lots of stuff for the kids...Dennis Chicago Northwest KOA

RE: Whats the best car to tow ??

We towed an HHR for years...(last year of mfg 2012) and they are great toads. Weighs in at a bit over 3k pounds and seats fold flat for more storage. Seats five comfortably and is good on mileage. Unfortunately ours was a flood casualty several months ago and was totaled. We purchased the Equinox and found it to be excellent so far. Both vehicles needed a fuse pulled to tow, but I wired in a toggle switch for that, so I simply put it in neutral, leave the key in the aux position to unlock the steering and flip the switch. As for the Blue Ox system, keep in mind each 'system' consists of two parts...the tow bar, that's the part that stays on the coach and the base plate, that's the part that stays on the car. IMHO, the nice thing about the BO baseplates is with the stubs removed, they are mostly hidden. Most tow bars are adaptable to their baseplates. For instance, I have the ReadyBrute tow bar from night shift auto with the BO ends. You can also buy them with Roadmaster ends etc. Easily interchangeable. The advantage of the ReadyBrute system is it incorporates a braking system in the tow bar itself eliminating the need for a Brake Buddy or similar external braking system.....Dennis

RE: Odor coming from behind washer

I would pour two cups of water down the drain pipe. If that 'cures' the smell, you're good to go....if not, check to make sure a mouse or other rodent didn't die behind there....try the water first as I suspect it's simply a dry P trap.....Dennis

RE: Interesting Insurance issue I just discovered-Progressive

I never thought I'd have a total loss either....then Mother Nature threw me a curveball and I missed.....28" of rain overnight....flooded the car, couldn't move the moho cuz the car was in front of it...thank goodness for air bags...saved the coach but lost the HHR...two other folks in the campground in the same predicament weren't so lucky, lost a 2009 Newell and a Prevost......never know what will/can/could happen at any time.....just sayin......Dennis

RE: Refrigerator size.

The overall dimensions are what the actual size of the fridge sitting on the sales floor. You'll need to use the 'enclosure' dimensions to ensure enough room to install the fridge into the coach. The enclosure dimensions also take into consideration any necessary breathing room for the fridge..(hint: don't cheat these dimensions)...Dennis

RE: Our First Motorhome

The reason you tripped the breaker was most likely the size of your extension cord. A 100' run is quite a bit for a 14ga cord. Upgrade to at least a 10ga cord and many of those issues will disappear.. No you know why we say "Never drive a diesel unless you have your checkbook"....:W.....Dennis

RE: Warrenty Company

thanks for all the advice but my question was simply does ANYONE have a decent warrenty company...please reply ONLY if you can offer a name. Thanks. I would go with Wholesale Warranties...they are the best in the industry. I've had several claims that they've handled quickly, efficiently and without hassles...Dennis

RE: brake and tail light bulb

You are only changing out the bulbs. On mine, I can open the engine compartment and access the bulbs from the rear. The sockets are the twist type. Lefty loosey, righty tighty. Twist off, replace bulb, twist on..you do not need to remove the housing to change the bulb.....Dennis

RE: Basic Motorhome Questions

1. I would buy a higher quality diesel 6 yrs or newer. Gasser 2-3 yrs. Diesel will be easier and more comfortable to drive. Prices will be about the same. 2. Passenger may use the restroom while underway with no problems unless you're on a very winding road. Use common sense. 3. We make sandwiches BEFORE leaving the campground and have them in the fridge. That way we can either stop at a rest area to eat or do so while underway with a minimal amount of fuss. 4. Passenger can sleep while underway either on the sofa or in the bed. Again, the diesel will provide you with a more comfortable and stable ride quality so more comfort while sleeping. 5. We spend the same as Mark for annual maintenance...$5-800. Annual oil changes, lube, filters, inspections etc. cost $289 @ Speedco. 6. We travel about 15,000 miles annually on mostly secondary roads and average about 8.7 miles per gallon. Secondary roads means many small towns, traffic lights and varied speed limits so less mpg but more things to see and do. Good luck.... hope this helps...Dennis

RE: Up date on problem posted a couple weeks ago...

Sorry, but I'm in the labor charge seems reasonable camp...while asking Marcus to give some back might work as a 'goodwill' gesture, IMHO far too many people want something for free. Yes, to fix the problem was simply resetting a breaker but, much of that was probably diagnostic. It always amazes me that we go to a doctor and think nothing of shelling out a small fortune for the doc to tell us we're ok, or spend a couple hundred dollars to have an attorney write a letter, but complain when a service facility charges us to fix our coaches. Part of the expense of fixing things is paying for someone else's knowledge, experience and overhead...we often send the techs on the wrong direction by telling them what we've done 'so far'. My guess is the OP told them he'd checked the breakers so they started inside the coach at the TV outlets and worked outward.....sorry the OP didn't find it himself even after posting his issue on here but as he stated, "lesson learned"....I'm not chastising the OP, simply commenting on other posters telling him to hammer the service facility......Dennis
