RE: Construction Question

During the Teton factory tour in 2006 a couple from Minn had their Teton in for repairs. The tour guide was telling the visitors about the great construction and the wood framing and how the windows can't leak so the wood would be the better material for a fifth. The front of one Teton showing the framing of the closet had a cross member butting up to a vertical stud. One of the pieces was split from the staple and was hanging out not really connected. Probably was repaired but not good for a tour to see. Then the couple with their Teton in for repair was in a room we were walking though. He walked over to see what was found. window leaked and the wood was rotten. he got a bang out of the previous talk on this subject. Nice cabinet shop and a nice fifth. So nothing is perfect. chevman

RE: Construction Question

No matter how it is made no rv has not had issues. Alpenlite as we have did the vacuum bonding walls. On later alpenlite' the glue was bad. On wall hung models the side wall came loose from the studs. On the wood framed models the wood did rot when wet. I have seen all of this my self and happy nothing happened to ours but sad it did for others. chevman

RE: Casa Grande, Az.

We have stayed in Casa Grande since 2002 including 2 short visits in 2001. We really like this area and will be sad soon as our winters might be staying home for health issues. Hope for 2 more years. Rv'rs are nice folks and the park doesn't make the difference in my thinking. chevman

RE: Name one thing you like best about your TV

I like the nice drive it gives us. Nothing drives like a GM up to 05 anyway. chevman

RE: Storing Honda 2000

I fill will fresh non ethanol gas with 1 oz per gallon after running the old gas out and refill each year before leaving for the winter in Oct. Always starts up to do the same each year. Never use it but it needs to run if needed. chevman

RE: Care to guess the new Powerstroke HP and torque rating?

Hot Shotters are hauling a heavy load when they are hauling several cars or Ford vans as I have shown pics of before. Bottom line dependability past warranty is why the independent haulers choose RAM as sworn by my recent survey. We saw that going south from Chandler az to Casa Grande from a Costco run. Here came a red Ram towing cars and soon another car hauler with a white ford dually (both duallys) ford was really dragging the rear end both were not going slow. Just fun to see what we see when traveling. My story is a true story but means nothing. chevman

RE: Care to guess the new Powerstroke HP and torque rating?

Hot shot haulers are not towing a loaded rv if this matters. From my experience a hotshot is driving so much faster than we tow their momentum helps on the climbs. Coming home one pulled into the weigh scale on I-84 with a long line of semi's on a rolling stop. Soon after he was on our tail again. He was driving a Ram but he was working not enjoying the drive as we were maybe. chevman

RE: Care to guess the new Powerstroke HP and torque rating?

With all of the comments about HP and torque I am getting a feeling our 310 HP and 605 ft lbs of torque might not get us to Az this October. chevman

RE: Is my butt saggy?

Your truck looks like what I see many times at our winters rv resort at the check in area. Even Rams can have a low rear look as the ford. I know of a 350 ford dually friend that travel the USA with his alpenlite and it was very low. So I think even time I see any truck sagging it would be an air bag purchase if I was asked. Our dodge was not level when the 32 ft alfa Ideal was hooked up. Air bags fixed the issue. Level just looks better. chevman

RE: 2016 MS36RSSB3 purchase

It is a fact that money does not mean quality. I beg to differ. Our Mobile Suites came with equipment such as the MorRyde independent suspension system, Kodiak disc brakes, Goodyear G114 17.5" tires, Progressive Dynamics PD9280 converter, Progressive Industries power protection and energy management systems, SeeLevel non-intrusive tank level monitors, Trailair TriGlide pinbox extension, etc. These are generally recognized as quality components in the RV industry, are they not? Now, quality control during assembly is another matter. We had 10 years of excellent service from our 2004 MS 36RE3, and it was still in excellent condition when we traded it in; we upgraded since I was about to retire and figured that our current 2014.5 MS 38RSSA would probably be our last RV. To this point, the 2014.5 has been at least as good as the 2004. Perhaps that's because it was built well at the factory, or perhaps that's because the dealer was very thorough in his make ready process. Either way, the result has been the same for us - as I said, it hasn't seen a repair facility of any kind (let alone the factory) since delivery. Rusty Rusty you are not wrong . Just seems quality is not great for most folks. We also have been very lucky for our 15 year old alpenlite. We have had repairs but not long drawn out stories trying to have repairs done and be done. Never needed to have alpenlite factory repairs before they were done. 122 miles to their factory would have been good for us if needed. I enjoy your posts. chevman

RE: 2016 MS36RSSB3 purchase

It is a fact that money does not mean quality. Look at high end MH's as we see in Arizona it just means the repairs are high end also . Might be a reason some rv manufactures couldn't keep up with the lower cost rv's. Money sells > good luck Jim. Dealers are important. chevman

RE: Care to guess the new Powerstroke HP and torque rating?

My thoughts are what will keep the tire from leaving the wheel. Might need a bead lock set up like RC cars have. chevman

RE: RV wrecks - to many

I believe the TT owners have a truck that is not big enough. In a not great day and weather issues this can cause problems. chevman

RE: HD Truck 0-60 Times

This topic always upsets the dodge guys. Not really big inline six will never be first off line, once moving hard to stop! I like towing 33K up and down 14 percent grades without overheating the trans or the engine and not touching the service brakes or at least very slightly. Ron pay attention to where you are going 14% is not a good idea for any rving trip. Everything will be at the back going up and everything will be at the front going down. Might not even be safe be safe everybody chevman
