RE: Empty Nesters

We decided when we are empty nest that we will buy a small casita, simple to tow, and tour the entire country for months at a time. We are already cozy in our small RV. The class A Bounder we have more room in of course, but it's not majorly important to us. Ease and comfort of travel (and simplicity in travel) can be nice too. A's & C's are nice for us with children. We can even bring a toad. But I think we are going to go with a tiny TT later, or perhaps even a cabover. This way we can tour the country, both city & countryside.

RE: Trouble fueling

I have posted this before, but so far, none of the suggestions have worked. Sometimes when we try to put gas in our 2003 Southwind, the pump continually shuts off. Anyone out there have a solution to this? Is this a new problem or has it always done this?

RE: Snow chains for small class C

DAS26miles - I believe I would go for the lighter weight chains. Unless you are going to frequently be traveling those types of roads. We drove through Denver, several years ago, heading to Grand Junction. The snow was really falling. We saw signs that chains may be required farther West. We slowed our speed and kept going. We saw several 18 wheelers over to the side putting on chains. We did not spin a wheel. We were carrying the load and they were pulling the load. Found these on the internet Tire Chains 'R' U. The sixth line in the 16" size should fit. Price seems reasonable - $67.41 free shipping in the lower 48. I agree completely. No reason to go too big really. This is what I have in my teeny class C.

RE: freightliner service vs RV dealer

Very common. It's sort of unfortunate, but freightliner would be the experts....

RE: Counterfeit Tires

I bet most of us could avoid this trouble by shopping at a major dealer of tires. Never going to a runty small tire shop. We buy from Costco & Sams. I'm pretty sure they buy in bulk directly from manufacturer.

RE: cold weather travel

I just kick mine in the morning. See you on the road! :)

RE: Build Year and miles on your chassis

To the op, I don't see any reason why you could not go the length with it. Just keep up your maint, good fluids, good tire pressure, and go easy on the road!

RE: Find Spare Parts for old Class C

Also check and see if somebody can fabricate one. They are not the toughest thing in the world to fabricate.

RE: New (to me) class C

The best advice I can give you is to have fun and enjoy it! :)

RE: RV Inspection

It's a second choice, but a reputable mechanic in your area could also help you some with this. Most will know the functions of enines, 12v, and have a generaly know-how of tools and what condition things are in. They won't be afraid to crawl up under it and shine flashlights in the right places.

RE: How do you find a place for lunch in your motorhome?

Eat while driving of course! :)

RE: Trailer vs Tow Behind Vehicle

Enclosed to keep things simple plus they'll be out of the elements.

RE: State parks on gulf

We like Galveston Island State Park. It's nice and the beaches are expansive and not crowded. It's not blue pretty water or white sands, but nice in its own nature. Be sure to bring plenty of bug spray to keep mosquitoes off. When we went there were a bunch and the local stores were all sold out of repellent.

RE: What year MH models are too old to consider buying?

Really it is about the same as buying an older vehicle. They are cheaper and often uglier and may even need more mechanical work. But in the end, you usually will end up with something good that functions.

RE: Storage and Batteries

They sell small solar panels that plug into your cig lighter. This will keep the batts trickle charged. They work good. Also battery minder sells a desulphator with a panel that works great.

RE: Rigs over ten years old

My opinion is that is just snobbish. There are perfectly fine rigs and perfectly fine people in RV's that are well more than 10 years old. Not everybody has nor wants to put a lot of money into a coach. Some folks go on 1 to 2 trips a year tops. My Toyota class c is well over 10 years, but the Bounder we have is only 7 years. If I went to a place that excluded older coaches, I would leave and tell them why. It's ridiculous in my opinion. However it's their place - their rules... But my free choice to not trade with them.

RE: Heater core removal

You may want to post what the year, make, and model is of the vehicle. Without it we are all guessing. Yes, it is like hearing "I'm sick I need medicine". Details! :)

RE: Parts Needed

Ebay is a great place to get any oddball RV parts. Lots of salvage, some new.

RE: Smog check - Where do you go?

Google is your friend on this one. Call around! Some places should be reasonable.
crasster 10/21/14 10:11am Class A Motorhomes

Just so you know, there is a small rebellion with MANY RV owners just installing regular fridges in their coaches. There are a lot of problems people have with RV fridges. The one listed in the OP is very common. Home refrigerators run at 34F in the fridge and 0F in the freezer. It's nice having real ice cream at camp, and not soup. :) We just inverter ours off 12V on the road.
