RE: Washer and dryer combo

Is it a heated dryer or air dry only? Heat won't be good unless plugged into shore power. Do a SLOW cycle trip on the breaker. Turn it off slow, wait, then on slow. Are you able to use a meter to make sure there is power after you put it back on?

RE: Tiffin owners, is this true

I am always confused when people ask these simple type questions on a Forum. It is a SIMPLE request, WHY not just call Tiffin or your Tiffin dealer and ask the question? Now, one thing you need to understand is NOT ALL Tiffins have this feature. So, you need to make sure your specific model has the Auto Gen-Start feature. The Phaeton/AllegroBus/Zephyr do have this as standard. But the other models, it is not always added as an option. You may have to specify it. Doug I have a simple answer. "Thank you for calling Tiffin" "We appreciate your calling" "Press 1 if you are a dealer" "Press 2 if you know your party's extension" "Press 3 if you'd like information on our new Phaeton" "Press 4 for warranty status check" "Press 5 for all other questions" Then you pull the cell phone away. Hit the dialpad, press 5. "Please hold" *Insert 7.23 minutes of bad music here* Call is answered. "Hi this is soandso with Tiffin support" "Can I get your name and number in case we get disconnected...." Then you convey your personal data. "Okay what can I help you with today". Give them your problem and hope they know the answer. You'll probably be transferred. Then your cheek hangs up the smartphone. Look, it's not that their support is bad. People would rather just ask other owners and not commit the time for phone calls. Plus it's more antisocial and fun on a forum.

RE: Back to the class A side

Well just sitting here waiting to go pick up our gently used 2016 Newmar Baystar 3401. Just shy of 3 years in the TT. It was a nice layout and pulled well but the overall quality and experience that I had hoped for. We owned our previous class A for 10 + years and had many (over 110,000) miles of fun and travel. I have decided I can do the gasser in this MH our last was an airstream DP. We look forward to the new coach it seems to be well made and I hope Newmar built this one with care and pride. DW can get back to using the facilities and making snacks etc... without pulling over and going back to the TT. I know the rough ride of our 2500 HD Ram will not be missed. So I will be over on the class A forum again from time to time. Come over whether or not you have a class A. There's always stuff to learn and anybody can contribute. RV'ing is RV'ing. :) Try having an A, C, and TT.... It keeps life interesting. :p

RE: Do you cover your RV?

My opinion on this matter is the best thing an RV owner can do is spend less on their coach and use the savings to get covered storage at their home. A metal enclosure to keep it in. Period. There is no cover that will protect like one of these, while keeping function. It will also prolong the life of the coach by decades usually.

RE: Screen door opener

Are you looking at the lever type or auto screen door openers?

RE: Paging adventurous BayStar/BayStar Sport owners......

I'm sure the dealer will tell you that their product will handle those dirt roads no problem. The reality is you better GO SLOW as the above post said. Watch for potholes.

RE: Polishing ALCOA Aluminun Rims

I LOVE to use Marvel Mystery Oil to polish all my metals. Works very very well. Rub in, buff off. :)

RE: Jack stands

I'd suggest just go off the recommended weight of the jack stand... I mean to mention brand / type / model number online is kind of awkward. Whatever weight of your vehicle, just be in specs. And remember, it's not always the jack stand, but what is under the jack stand that counts too.

x2, he needed to drive it not just start it. Starting it is better than not, driving is way better than just starting.

RE: Prompt suncreen wheel covers

They do work well, and I do think they'll preserve tire life some.... However I still state as I have for years that I'd rather go cheaper on the RV and buy an enclosure to store it in than a nicer coach and do covers and the like. (of course if it is possible in the area you live). A "garaged" coach from sun/weather will last WAY longer, look better, and won't have even close to the issues as one left outside. Dry rot, fading, paint, roof issues, funky a/c covers, etc. etc. All from weather & elements. 100k coach outside - no way. I'd go 70k coach 30k building.

RE: Air-bag Leveling

I would say it is a great feature on good campsites that are fairly level already. There is a variance, and I don't know the percent of how much the ground can change from tire to tire. But if the site is good, air bag levelers are awesome. Otherwise you may have to back up on some wood if the site is bad.

RE: Need New House Batteries - HELP!

I'd still put those batts on a desulphator. I bet they'd come back.

RE: Will getting a larger roof A/C solve the problem?

Certainly, but before making the plunge check a few things. 1. Take down the lower unit (the ceiling fixture inside the coach) and with a flashlight check the fins of the interior heat exchanger. Even with the air filters a lot of debris will get past and coat the fins and degrade performance. 2. Get up on the roof and remove the cover. Clean the fins and the external unit plus check the fins. If the soft aluminum fins are bent do your best to comb them as best as possible. 3. As best you can seal the interior duct work. While doing #1 above check to ensure minimal leakage between the intake and exhaust. Use aluminum tape to seal. I have the same thoughts as Ivylog with regards to a heat pump. A heat pump will cost more but will give you more flexibility for year round camping. Replacement is pretty simple and the hardest part is getting the new unit up on the roof. A/C has two purposes. First is to condition the air which is pulling the humidity and second to cool it. If you over air condition and get the temperature down faster than the humidity you'll end up with a coach that feels like a cave. Cold and damp. X2. There is nothing magic about a "new a/c unit" for cooling. A/C units use compression and expansion of gas to cool. So long as the gas has not escaped the unit, the compressor still compresses, and the blower still blows, then it's debris and build up on the unit that will cause it to cool less. They sell a/c fin cleaner at Home Depot. It's great to use. Clean EVERYTHING up. Take off the shroud and remove any debris. I've seen A/C units cool excellent that are 30 years old so long as they are kept clean!

RE: Reliability in purchasing older diesel A

I think on posts like this people are looking to comfort nerves because even though units are older, it is still a big buy. The thing is there are really TOO many variables. How was the coach cared for? What is the interior/exterior shape? Will it be used mainly for local ventures or touring? The main thing is define the usage, look at the overall shape, and go from there. Trust your gut. Get a checklist when looking at it and go over all details. Also (I hate saying this) look at the owner. Are they well kept? Is the lawn kept well? How is the home kept? (Doesn't matter if they are rich, just maintained). If they have a junkyard in their yard and weeds growing everywhere typically they kept up the RV the same way.

RE: Service in Texas

What vicinity in TX? Your OP shows Galveston... I know a of a moderate shop in Brownwood, TX, and a good one in Amarillo, and also Dallas. I don't know of any in Houston though but I'm sure they are there if you want anything closer.
