RE: spare tire

I carry an unmounted spare tire and have a Coachnet contract so they can send out a truck to install.

RE: Class A toad caught on fire

1) a rear camera won't show a flat tire. We had a flat and couldn't even feel a difference in the pull. The monitor can't show a view from the side. A motorist pulled alongside and gave us that dreaded hand signal. We were riding on the rim by that time. We immediately installed tire presser sensors on all tires - motorhome and toad. Months back I flagged down a MH where the pickup truck dingy had a very flat rear tire. He finally stopped, looked at it and told me well "I am just a few miles from home" Drove away with sparks flying dragging the truck on the back rim.

RE: Dolly,trailer or tow?

I will be towing our 2014 toyota 4 runner behind my MH.. in your experiences will I be better off to use a tow bar, a dolly, or a trailer? thanks! Check your owners manual as your Toyota may need to be trailered.

RE: Buying First Diesel Pusher

Some have wet bay floor issues and roof radius problems 2002 Tiffin MHs Do NOT have roof radius or wet bay floor issues. Sounds like a respectable deal with decent price depending on the AGE of the tires. You will get opinions on replacing between 5 - 10 years.

RE: damon and coachmen

this is why i love this site. thanks everyone. i'm better informed now. i know i won't be the most important customer to motorhome dealers. not spending 250+ so i need to be as informed as i can be to make the best choice for us. When you walk in the door you should be "the most important customer". Dealers need to sell their used MH trade-ins also as it helps them make a deal for the next new one.

RE: Those blasted drawers!!!!

A previous motorhome also had the issue of some drawers opening while traveling. The drawers had loop style handles which allowed me solve the issue with just a cut piece of wooden dowel thru the openings before travel.

RE: Odometer Reset

I had to check odometer on my rig for extended warranty work. Last shop wrote down wrong mileage. Freightliner pluged into the onboard computer and retrieved the information, charged me 1/2 hr. for labor. Go to a Freightliner Oasis Center or call Freightliner Help line. This issue was discussed when I attended Camp Freightliner. They said the actual mileage was easily accessible.

RE: Rodent in the RV.... ACK!!!

Check with your insurance as it maybe covered by your comprehensive policy. A few years ago I had a mouse go up a tailpipe of my 64 Nova & actually left remains in a couple cylinders. Insurance paid to rebuild the motor.

RE: Tire Age

Some of the more uncommon sizes are only made once per year. My cut off age is 12 months.

RE: Which older model gas rig would you consider?

As a former Fleetwood Bounder owner I would caution any buyer to be very careful of any wall decontamination and/or roof issues. Both are VERY expensive to repair. Consider a Newmar or a brand with a fiberglass roof. Do you mean DELAMINATION? Whoops.... I believe computer predictive spelling caught me

RE: National RV, and other orphan values

the real world be a lot lower for orphans The common thought on most forums is that the NADA values for RVs are NOT based on real world prices. A standard % depreciation maybe closer to their printed numbers.

RE: Which diesel rig would you purchase?

Regarding above comments. Cummins diesel engines did not have DEF until 2011 models. Maybe some late 2010 units.

RE: GM Recalls Expanded

Thanks for the update. www.chevyhhr.net is reporting that GM will be R&R the PS motor with an updated unit. PS motor is mounted on the lower part of the steering shaft.

RE: GM Recalls Expanded

Wait, there's more. GM has ordered all sales on the Chevy Cruze to stop immediately. Might be noted the Cruze is GM's best selling model. Wonder what that is all about? Kerry GM recalls Chevy Cruze for axle problem only ECOTECĀ® 1.4L turbo gas engine affected

RE: GM Recalls Expanded

My ignition switch was replaced 18 months ago with a recall on my HHR. It was a situation where the key could not be removed from the switch and in some instances you could not turn OFF the ignition. Now it appears that the switches will just suddenly go dead. Maybe somewhere in the middle is the answer to their switch problems. :B What year is your HHR? I didn't know of another recall. We bought an early 2006 HHR to tow and bought one of the last 2011s. Our 06 had about 150,000 miles showing before selling it to friends with a motorhome.

RE: GM Recalls Expanded

Recalls Recalls Recalls Yes it is GMs turn in the barrel. EVERY manufacture has had issues. Nissan currently has airbag problems. Dodge (RAM) recalled over a million trucks for tie rods braking. Toyota recently expanded their truck frame rust recall to newer models. Older recalls include Toyota floormats or computer issues. Ford cruise controls and ignition switches causing fires. Flash back to Ford Police Crown Victoria gas tanks exploding on impact (remember the Pinto?) Safety standards certainly have changed and I would bet most of us here even remember pickup trucks with the gas tank in the passenger compartment behind the drivers seat. Talk about scary in today's world. What concerns me is that modern cars are becoming sort of a PacMan http://thumb1.gamex.com/files/thumbs/120x90/pacman-1699.jpg game on wheels. The driver is slowly losing control with sensors feeding a computer deciding when to stop and go. I find it very refreshing when I buckle the lap only seat belt and fire up my 65 Impala SS for a ride. Mine even has manual brakes. I know I am in complete control.
