RE: Any Hurricane owners out there?

Had a 2009 Hurricane, Model 30Q Entry level. Once I got all the first year problems taken care of, it was a good one. Ford V-10. Held road great. The only problem I could not get fixed was a wind noise coming in through the passenger front seat window. It was terrible at 55 to 60 m.p.h. Would repurchase that particular one. That is actually somewhat common. First year issues. I have no idea why this is a total trend in RV's. I wish mfg's would be more careful.

RE: Coleman AC. Should we upgrade to heat pump

Heat is very relative to wattage. A good quality space heater will go a lot further than a low qual because of the distribution, fan, and overall engineering. REMEMBER though that more expensive does NOT mean better. One of my best space heaters is from the 1980's and still going today.

RE: Breaker panel

Are they in the closet or near the converter?

RE: Battery Boost / Auxillery Switch

I have the Neptune with a 300 Cummins and the only time it does not work is if the shift is not in Neutral. There have been times I need to hunt for the exact spot. X2, I'd try this and also check for continuity on the switch terminals.

RE: Gas check valve for Genset

If your carb has a bowl I assure, the fuel isn't going back into the tank from the bowl.

RE: HELP--Driveshaft auto-brake area throbbing vibration

MY thought is take it to a shop, you may have more than just a few problems. X2, yeah it really sounds like it's shop time because there really sounds to be several problems going on.

RE: Do I need to change out my converter?

I forgot to add, the golf cart batteries generally have way more amp hours and can take more abuse than those deep cycles.

RE: Do I need to change out my converter?

You can also upgrade to 6V golf cart batteries and wire them in series for 12v, then you shouldn't need to change the converter.

RE: quadrajet replacement

You can also find carbs that have already been rebuilt on Ebay. I'd do the repair kit.

RE: Impressed with MPG in old rig

That is pretty good. RV's of course are terrible with MPG's. I still believe the MFG's could do better with aerodynamics and such to get better. It's also weight so there's that. I would love to see the day where large coaches get 12-14mpg. :) I do in my Toyota get great MPG but not the Bounder! I get about what you do.

RE: Hot Transmission, what can I do?

Some of these suggestions are easier said than done. The fan itself couldn't be just an electric fan, must be 12v and have a thermostat to cut on. Also should be durable (auto grade) for rain/weather, etc. I'd suggest just adding the cooler first to open venting and then go from there if needed.

RE: 50 years of Newmar

They do make a great coach. Thanks for the link & history. :)

RE: Need a driver for my motorhome (possibly)

Keep looking you will find somebody. Check with RV dealers as suggested, also check with local RV parks. Dealers however may have people the drive them anyway. I wouldn't expect a willing driver to tote you + hubby back necessarily though. They may want to go for LONG stretches or all at once. May need to get a bus/train or fly back.

RE: Stolen tow bars

The bolt and nut are good but a thief with a Makita impact gun will have it off just as quick as a standard pin. And a thief with a cut-off wheel on a battery powered angle grinder will have the locks off just as quick. I suspect most tow bar thefts are spur of the moment impulses on the part of the thief. If somebody shows up with intent, proper tools and a little planning nothing short of an armed guard will stop them. True. The lock stops the crime of opportunity though and the unprepared thief. You know what is effective, putting a "Jesus is the answer" bumper sticker on your coach. :)

RE: Do My Own Maintenance

Of course you can. The access is just barely any more difficult... Do your own maintenance if you can. You'll save money and know the job was done right.

RE: Buying advice

Hello everyone. New to the forum. I am about about three years away from retirement and at this point I am in the "investigative" stage of my motor home purchase. I have already read JohnnyT's post of buying an motor home and it was great. I do have a very general question. Never having owned a motor home I pose the following question? (numbers and names are only cited for example purposes) If I decide my budget is 150k (have not settled on a budget yet) would I be better off buying a new motor home that cost 150k (say a Thor) or would I be better off buying a used Prevost that cost 150k? One will obviously be new and the other might be 20 years old. Thanks for the input. You went from one extreme to another. I'd go with a gently used Tiffin. Good coach, not total luxury, but great quality overall.
