RE: Flat tire 36 hrs after I purchased new

Are there any scuffs on the sidewall from the road where it was parked?

RE: Used RV Loans

X2 on credit unions. Also if it is old and you have a credit card you can buy one on a credit card and then get a personal loan (with less interest) for the credit cards. (Or debt consolidation if you have others). My rule of thumb though, it may be good to go old enough to NOT take on debt. Sure shiny and newer is always nice, but it truly burns up $ to take on debt. It's often about how old we are willing to go and what compromise.

RE: allegro motorhomes

I know of a guy with these problems in a 1987. :) Tiffins generally make a good coach. I think every coach has a share of different problems. How does the one you are thinking about buying look? Will you store it covered or not? After all most RVs (non-full time) suffer the most weathering/rotting while being stored.

RE: Water drip from AC return

Two things to check. Pull the A/C cover and make sure the drain holes are not plugged and pull the inside plastic cover and check tightness of the four hold down bolts. Since it happens at speed and not stationary I would suspect the bolts. X2 Drain holes.

RE: One Disadvantage of a DP

Well another disadvantage is parking a 40 footer and the compatibility of many parks for them. Also many parks have 30 amp only, when most DP's are 50. Another disadvantage is the up front cost. Easily one can START you at $300k new. There's still some good gassers at $70k new. But with all this said, we have 3 rv's. A Class A bounder, A Toyota Class C, and a KZ travel trailer. We ARE shopping around for a DP and wanting to get rid of the KZ and Bounder. :) Why? Well there's TONS of advantages to a DP. :)

RE: How many hours a day do you drive?

Usually no more than 8.

RE: 91 Georgie Boy Cruise Aire 3

Really the best thing to do is to check it out and inspect it as much as possible. 91 can still be good coach.

RE: Preventative hail damage

yeah we are hunkering down here in TX. Lots of storms coming through. We generally spread old bed comforters on top of all of our coaches because we don't live near an underpass. It's not fool proof, but it can take the ding out of some hail.

RE: Upgrading our couch

If you forget the air mattress you'll be ok. :) I suggest memory foam.

RE: Class A camping near The Biltmore

We liked Asheville East KOA in Swannanoa. 11 miles from the Biltmore. We thought this one was pretty good.

RE: TPMS wont register on inside tire

You should try a new valve core. Bruce I was thinking the same thing. :)

RE: 80mph gusts wind ..ripped off half roof

I bet they will insure it. Look, we don't just go out for fun and peel back the roof on our RV. :P Use weather reports for that day in the area it happened to give them.

RE: Putting Black Tank Chems in Grey Tank?

We use bleach or apple cider vinegar to clean grey tanks.

RE: Sealand toilet seal leakage

You should not have to use "Plumbers Grease" on any part of a RV Toilet. If the job is done correctly. Doug Exactly. It should fit just right.

RE: Winnebago vs Tiffin

I barely lean Tiffin. You'll be fine either way though as I'd give it 1% better. The reason I BARELY lean Tiffin is nothing Scientific, but just through the years I just see a lot of surviving Tiffins to antiquity. :) Winnies too though... but in ratio it just seems to be Tiffin.... But we are talking like ancient coaches.

RE: Updating radios

If its an in-dash style outdoor radio, you may even find it easier than an in dash radio if it has good access. I don't know specifics on your model. I've seen them on tear drops and they were installed right behind a simple panel.

RE: LP gas tank extension question

You might want to consider a Stay a While or Extend a Stay Tee. They are available with a outlet and hose for an external grill and an outlet and hose that will fit an external cylinder. The later can be handy when you are stopped for a while and don't want to move the motor home to fill up the on-board tank. They have some built in safety devices so are better than just a plumbing Tee. You can get a longer hose for the grill. As I recall the one that comes with it is about six feet long. A friend had one made that was about 20 feet long. I installed mine myself - took maybe ten minutes. This is exactly what I was thinking. Install the T and there are multiple uses. You'll be able to grill, fry, and have an interesting flamethrower if that suits your purpose. ;) They install easy. For me on my bounder about 15-20 minutes. On my Toyota C it was a bit harder as I had to re-engineer a divider.

RE: used coach

Same as I'd tell anybody else buying a DP... Do your homework. If you are very mechanical give it a very good inspection which will merit next - Next hire a RV mechanic/repair person to inspect it. If you don't hire an RV inspector, you better seriously be good at inspecting and bring a friend who is mechanical and has a great eye for inspection. Also ALWAYS bring a lady along. Women have eyes for "stuff"... Details... Details guys miss.

RE: K&N Air Filter

I would not use one. The point of an air filter is to filter the air from small (or even large) foreign bodies. They may say they "breathe easier", but if you consider the overall size of the filter and compare it to the air intake tube, it is usually MUCH larger. This is because the filter has a larger surface area than the area of the circle of the intake. So it breathes from a "larger area" to a smaller area, and the "breath" is filtered. Hence it should go pretty unrestrained once into the intake. The K&N stuff I don't want to debate about, but I'd agree with the post above about "snake oil". However if you are looking at more MPG's, there is an oil called "Marvel Mystery Oil", that often people look at and think is snake oil. I can give actual testimonial of my own that it increases MPG's in both my home vehicles, my children's go-karts, my lawn equipment runs longer, My Class C (pictured below) gets better MPG, and my class A bounder gets better MPG when using that stuff. A bit in the oil and fuel. For Diesels read up on their site about the use. Really it's a high detergent with a kick.

RE: Fresh Water Tank Problem

I'm with the others - check valve.
