RE: Slightly used, but still running

See it's just a matter of your mindset. You, he, and/or she may care what an RV looks like... But some people could care less. Does it drive? Yep. Does it get out there? Yep. In life I've met people with net worth of 10+ million that shop at thrift stores and drive 20 year old cars. Some of them simply do not care what anybody thinks of them and only are concerned about function. One must ask. Two coaches side by side. This one, and a 2018. Both have the same views, both function. Outside it's all the same. But one is paid for, the other 100k in debt. Some may be snarky and say "I'd rather have the debt", but the other guy says, "Yep, but I get to be here on Monday, enjoy your weekend".

RE: ge produxts be aware

I want more than anything for Hobart to start making appliances for both home and RV's. Unfortunately, a lot of government now exists in our appliances.

RE: Having the hardest time buying a new class A

Thing is about residential refrigerators is they seem to perform way way better and last way way longer than the others. No they don't run on propane which is a problem... Constantly here even on RV net we've seen people with so much trouble with classic RV refrigerators... Countless posts. What we do when we boondock is freeze LARGE ice packs, lots of them in the freezer when plugged in. Put the ice packs all through the fridge and freezer when boondocking. If you need to fire the generator to re-freeze, get them all back into the freezer. At least that's what we'd do. To each their own, and understand all situations are different.

RE: On-Site Oil Change - Yuma

x2, check with park management. Usually oil changes aren't rocket science. I think so long as they are clean and quick the park management won't care... Unless it's more or less a ritzy snobby park.

RE: Kids and class C

We have a class A and our kids are all teenagers now, but when we first bought it, they were ages 1, 3, 4 & 7. Yes, in those days, we did use at least 2 cars seats with the youngest ones. But once they were big enough to be belted in, we no longer used the car seats in the motorhome. Our general rule was, once they were old enough to move around on their own, that IF they needed to use the potty, they would ask permission. If I felt it was safe (I was driving), then I gave them permission. This would require that we were not in a high traffic situation, there was lots of space between vehicles, good weather, etc. etc.. In other words, a low risk situation. If we were in bumper-to-bumper, stop & go traffic, then we pretty much encouraged them to get up and use the potty during the traffic jam. Again, very low risk situation. Once we started travelling at speed, most of those caught in the traffic jam were pulling into rest areas to use the potty while we just kept trucking down the road. If we were on a long trip, we would have premade sandwiches, snacks & drinks and wifey would distribute these. Or if a diaper needed to be changed, we'd pull over at the next convenient rest area. As the kids got older, they had more freedom, but they will ALWAYS ask for permission to make sure it's safe, and so that I know they are no longer in their belted seats. In my opinion, there is no better way to travel with children than in a motorhome. Use it wisely and enjoy the trip! ~Rick I like this because you let it "live a little". There were days when you could pile up children in a hatchback, ride in the back of pickup trucks, and not worry about every little thing you did on the road. I mean, you are the driver, if you are not in a dangerous traffic area, things look smooth, we'd go for it. :)

RE: Boys and Grils - A Change of Seasons

Glad you had fun with it! Life adventures don't have to stop even if you stop RV'ing! :)

RE: 1997 Southwind ignition key

It may just be easier to put a new key into it using lock pics to push the cylinder into place? Is it a classic fit key with the small whole to change the cylinder? Often doing so is a 5 minute job.

Why use fuel if you don't have to? I know electricity is a form of fuel, but at least it's a plug in and not something you need to go refill.

RE: FMCA Michelin tire program issues

Well if anything else is learned, always check on the labor rate. Still though $540 for 6 tires mount and balance seems very high. Many smaller tire shops will have the jacks needed (basically bigger bottle jacks) and heavy duty impact wrenches to service a coach. What size tires?

RE: RV windshield repair

Not really seeing a "scam" so to say. Perhaps the system you are seeing is an industry standard?

RE: Trouble shooting and other questions from a newbie

12 volt circuits will have fuses NOT breakers. Breakers will all be 120VAC Find your fuse panel. Check all fuses with an ohm meter. Go to the first light fixture closest to the switch. Assuming the switch has power on the on side. Take the fixture down and look. The wiring will be daisy chained and quite possibly a wife nit has come loose or a wire has pulled out killing the lights. This coach has 12v push button "breakers" in a panel next to the 120v regular breakers. The chasis 12v system has both traditional fuses/relays in one panel and then more push button breakers. Make sure the buttons are working too as I've seen several flimsy ones. Continuity with a meter should do.

RE: Water Softener

We recently bought this one directly from the manufacturer. RV-Pro 10,000 It's working well. These are excellent! I've only seen good things about them.

RE: Need advice, in a lot of trouble

The pan didn't get bent while it was bolted in place, it got bent when he prayed it off. If not bent too bad it can be straightened, and if bent to badly I wonder what else he did wrong. I agree something is wrong. They go on with torque specs too to not bend at the bolts.

RE: Can a rooftop a/c be added if there is not a roof vent?

Don't forget you'll need a dedicated 20amp line to it. Also some coaches are funny about dripping condensation. Be aware of that too. I saw one custom job fill up the awning at night with water! Usually it is okay, but just make sure that the way water runs works with your roof / awning.

RE: Tiffin Allegro Red 33AA vs. Winnebago Forza 34T

I'd go with the size of coach you want (if you trade in) and then plug in to where to go. The internet is definitely your friend to learn where you can fit.

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. :)
