RE: Monaca with Cummins 8.3 won't start the first time

Sounds like a solenoid (weak one at least).

RE: Does the engine alternator charge house batteries?

Yes, it charges through a battery isolator which "splits" the current between both but will not allow the house to drain the truck battery.

RE: How practical is the sliding bunk over cab in Class A's?

I think they are just fine for those who want it. RV's vary so much, just get the things you think you'll need.

RE: The death of a motorhome

Yes it boggles the mind. I witnessed a nearly 80 year old man buy a new DP and he parked it.... Sat... Sat.... and Sat. Well it sat for 5 years. I guess he got scared on the drive home. ? Don't know the outcome of the DP, but it was kind of sad to see it waste away.... I would have gladly put it t use for him.

RE: First Time Buyer! > Need advice on inspections

A LOT of people will say "get it inspected", but very few are out there who just "know" who to inspect the RV. We hear that so much, but often I wonder where people find all these mysterious inspectors floating around. Here's the scoop. I would get a mechanic (yes a regular mechanic) that you may know to inspect the coach if you don't know an official RV inspector. A mechanic will be able to tell you a lot of any mechanical issues. If they have a moderate head on their shoulders, they'll also be able to tell you if the roof is leaking, etc. Of course this depends on the coach you are buying. A used Class A, sure I think a regular mechanic would be fine (so long as it is not loaded with tons of features). A very complicated and expensive diesel pusher - get on the interenet and find you an official mysterious RV inspector.

RE: Water & Traveling in Winter

You'll be fine. They won't freeze in those temps if it's just night temps.

RE: Does buying that 45' rig do it for you?

I'm one who likes a good small RV. While I appreciate the large it is my preference to be able to have an easy and enjoyable drive. We travel far and hard though. Sometimes 500-600 miles in one day. Once, 900 miles (not by choice but emergency). It's good to feel like you are in an oversized pickup with those kind of miles.

RE: directv question

I wonder why that is, it's the same satelliets you point to....

RE: Pre Purchase Advice

That kind of $ for a 1996, 18 years old.... Dunno.... I'd pass.

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.
