RE: Fuel line for generator

Well, in the spirit of rigging things up, Yes, you can always run another fuel line. Just be sure you use fuel grade rubber / metal. It's not my 1st choice (dropping the tank and replacing is), but it can be done. It's just physics.

RE: Front end align on a fairly new coach

I recently upgraded my Newmar's F53 chassis with a rear sway bar, CHF and a roadmaster safety steer. After reading many posts it seems that the general feeling among class A owners is that the the alignment ( from the OEM ) is not correct for a MH I don't spending the $$ to do an alignment but I wonder if I am reading these posts correctly. The changes I have made to this point have calmed this coach down I initally had some handling problem when it was windy. I did not have problems from passing trucks etc... Just wondering. So on a calm windless day it runs fine? Also with passing trucks? Doesn't sound like it has an alignment problem. RV's are big sails, basically.

RE: 2014 Coachmen Pursuit 31B - Thoughts?

I would agree that the price is middle high. I'd haggle that one to middle. :)

RE: Front wheel bearing service timeline ??

There are so many dependencies on bearings it's too hard of a question to ask. 20k though seems too soon to me. Do you drive primarily on good roads (not gravel/farm roads or pot holes / dusty roads)? I can't imagine they need it yet though at 20k.

RE: engine air update

The AC in my truck has acted up twice lately. I *think* it froe up but it fixed itself much like yours did. The problem is, things that fix themselves rarely stay fixed. I have seen A/C systems freeze up and rapidly melt and in turn somewhat cleaned off the coils. Eventually it will probably freeze up again though because they were not cleaned properly.

RE: New coach

Yes x3 I agree that anything custom will be a huge premium. On the lot dealers have capital invested, often are paying interest, and all know the year is ticking and sun glowing (aging). You'll get a much better deal with more features.

RE: Polishing wheels

I love Marvel Mystery Oil on aluminum and chrome rims. Does an excellent job polishing.

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: Roof repair

Would eternabond work? I mean if you just want a DIY with no frills.

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.

RE: 1997 Country Coach

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.
