Saying you don't have access to a scale is a cop out. Any truck stop, Flying J/Pilot/Loves/TA have scales. Get your coach weighed and inflate your tires according to the table specs. Michelin and Goodyear have tables posted on their websites. Lots of reasons to maintain the correct tire pressure...Dennis
If it's only the kitchen faucet then it can only be one of two things...plugged strainer or contaminated filter. Check strainer first, as that's easiest. Then trace the water lines looking for an in line filter.....Dennis
The problem with generalizations and stereotypes:
No, this was not in 1984 - it was less than a month ago. Technically a "Class A". Not so much "class" as it is "vintage" but we have fun with it. And we go outside.
But.....two of the three kids have their electronic toys.....:W:W:W.....Dennis
SpeedCo charges $288 for lube, oil change, filter change and both fuel filters. Done once a year, every February. I carry a spare set of fuel filters in case I get a batch of bad diesel and a spare serpentine belt, just cuz....other than that, I wash and wax it regularly and it gets me down the road....Dennis
If you have to ask, maybe you shouldn't be looking....:B:B:B.
Why not call an insurance agent and ask them..........:B:B:B.
OK. I feel better now.....:W......Dennis
That said, insurance companies figure things different ways. In your example, depending on coverage, an '04 Newell would cost more than the '10 Fleetwood, simply because it's older and parts are more expensive to fix them. Now if you're ONLY looking at theft coverage, they're probably both going to be the same.....Dennis
Another vote for RV Glass Solutions...they came to our campsite in Flagler Beach and replaced our one piece on site. Very professional. Arrived on time, did their thing in about an hour and a half and cleaned everything up when they were done. They have nationwide mobile installers, and they had our windshield in stock. When you call, make sure you have the numbers off the lower left hand side of the windshield. It makes it easier for them to find the right one........Dennis
91302 Coburg Industrial Way, Coburg, OR 97408
Maybe he was just admiring your Pelazzo....!!!....:B:B.
First thing to do anytime something like this happens is get his license number. Second thing is to use your cell phone to record what he's doing. Third thing is to call 911, report it and show the responding officer the video.........Dennis
There's other stuff, of course...and probably cheaper too, but for my money, try some Super Concentrated Odor Eliminator, SCOE 10X. I bought it on line for some cats we owned when we had our stix n brix. It works!...IIRC it was about $30 for a bottle but it was concentrated. I only used a small amount.....Dennis
We don't camp anymore. We RV...in the morning we enjoy coffee outside, then have breakfast inside, shower, inside of course and get ready for the day. If we are not going anywhere in particular, we read, work on stuff, watch TV if there's a game on, do bills etc. Usually in the afternoon, we go outside again to nap or read. Early evening, we go back inside as all the yahoo's are building their fires with gasoline and whatever wet wood or a pallet or two they brought with them, and have dinner and sit back with a glass of wine or two and watch TV, talk or play games, sometimes adult ones..:W.....we also walk about 4-5 miles every day with our fufu dog too....we don't worry too much what other people are doing as long as they're not bothering us.....we enjoy each other.....just sayin.....Dennis
If they are so great why does Consumers Reports highly recommend you stay away from them?
Because they DO NOT ! Please POST WHERE you get this information. :S:S
Be sure to specify where they "HIGHLY RECOMMEND" you stay away from RV, MOTOR HOME, TRAILER etc. service policies. Thank you....Dennis
A tag axle coach is a pretty easy give away for any CHP cruiser on that road. The CHP has been known to enforce zero tolerance on that road depending on accident stats.
While they have you stopped, they might just as well do a complete inspection of your rig, insurance, safety, driver's license, even weight if they choose etc. IMHO, save yourself the aggravation, possible delay of your travels and invariably added cost of a ticket(s) or more. Other folks traveling that highway will appreciate it as well.....just sayin.....Dennis
Real life experiences here....I've had two policies and have been pleased with both. The first paid for a third member that lost a gear, $5400, a middle A/C, transfer switch and microwave, $7800 and the second has paid for a front A/C, $1900, slide repair, $450, an Amish unit for my Norcold, and a blow out, $733. So, yes, I believe they are worth it.
That said, a couple of caveats...first they are NOT warranties, they are service contracts. Contracts should be read VERY CAREFULLY. My current contract cost just shy of $5k for 4 yrs. I opted for a $50 ded, tire add-on as well as an extra fee to have the 'weasel' clause removed. That's the clause that says "If a covered part fails due to the failure of a non covered part, the covered part is not covered." Also, make sure, if you do buy, that it's an "Exclusionary" contract. Those contracts list the items that are excluded from coverage. If it's not listed, it's covered. That way you know exactly what you're buying. They also will pay for mobile mechanics that will come to you. Keep in mind, though, that there are specific instructions that will need to be followed to get reimbursed. So far, I've not had a claim denied.
I'm pretty handy at fixing things, but having the peace of mind knowing if I don't want to do it myself, I have a valid backup. For instance, I replaced two solenoids this past year that the insurance would have covered. It simply wasn't worth it to me to file the claims. I hope this helps...good luck with your decision.....Dennis
After much to do, thanks to one of our forum members, I present below the OFFICIAL position relative to the diesel fuel tax situation in Arizona. The first post is the letter received from the Deputy Division Administrator. As you can see, Arizona is now acutely aware of the confusion and have promised to implement a change in their wording and pump stickers. In the following two pages, on AZDOT letterhead specifies RV's are NOT included, note section B. Personally, I've printed out the 2004 memo and carry it in the coach in case I'm challenged while fueling.....this is for everyone's information.
Please keep any comments constructive and to the point.. thanks...Dennis
Actually the owner of the coach we looked at was a full timer.Hadn't considered that that was why he had so much stuff. I figured everyone traveled with tools and spare parts.The one we're considering is a 2000 foretravel with 95000 mi on it. I'm hoping the cummings motor and Allison transmission will be fairly trouble free for another 200,000 mi.I'm feeling more comfortable that it won't be too complicated.Thanks for the quick replies!
You'll need to carry extra fuel filters, a serpentine belt and CoachNet or Good Sam. Less stuff than you'd carry in a gasser. The drive train is pretty bullet-proof. That said, when you have the rig serviced, make sure you shadow the technician so you know how to change the filters on the road. A batch of bad diesel will plug the filters and you'll save tons on money and time if you can change them yourself. Easy to do and certainly doable on the side of the road.
Finally, CUMMINGS is a CITY in GEORGIA.....you have a CUMMINS....:W....Dennis
We have been camped in NM for several weeks. They have some of the lowest fuel taxes in the USA. Their roads are in very good condition. Compare that with Los Angles. All freeways in LA have been redesigned 4 wheel drive roads. LA roads are so bad that after the pounding I put my coach through six weeks ago I have sworn I will never drive the coach through that miserable place again. Oh, and California has the highest gas taxes in the USA. Go figure.
Sorry, but Los Angeles has more vehicles in their City than New Mexico has in their entire STATE !!...more vehicles mean more abuse to the roads infrastructure. Because of the traffic, the roads can't be shut down for very long, so most everything is a patch job. Vote for the new guy!....Dennis
