RE: Truck stop or Cummings shop for filter and oil change?

We have a Bridgeway Cummins shop by us. I've been going there for years. Really great very professional guys. I trust them and their work is top notch. They even go as far to suggest alternatives to the standard maintenance schedule as shown in the owners manual which wouldn't compromise the warranty and save some money. X2 !

RE: Rust Underneath on Chassis

Nothing to worry about unless you winter travel here in the rust belt. Spent some time this year helping friends look for used MH and we saw some real rusty stuff here in the midwest. Rusty basement compartment frames, windshield frames & Chassis frame extensions are probably the biggest early problem areas. All quite expensive fixes.

MH fire at NSRA event

A 2002(?) Monaco Diplomat burned last Thursday night in the campground for the NSRA (National Street Rod Assoc) Northern Nationals in Kalamazoo Michigan. I was told the owners dog woke them up and everyone escaped safely. Looked to me like fridge fire & I heard the owners said two recalls had been performed. No coverage by local newspaper, so far

RE: What insurance companies cover high value motor homes?

As with any insurance company, time changes everything. Full timer insurance also contains a "homeowner liability" contract so it's more expensive. Like MrMark, we carry large coverage amounts. However, I carry a $1k collision and $500 comp. deductibles. Also, when your rig reaches the magical 10 year mark, replacement coverage goes away and it becomes an agreed upon replacement amount, negotiated between you and the carrier...Dennis Good info Dennis, I would like to emphasize get the agreed upon value in writing and be aware many insurance companies like to revalue at the time of a loss.

RE: rusting out cargo bins

Found another Winnebago rust posting. http://forums.motorhome.com/index.cfm/fuseaction/thread/tid/28229227.cfm I was actually searching for a previous article for OP showing storage bay restoration from rust. Cant remember where it was posted or printed. Quite sure the MH was an American Coach. There are also some real rust disasters on normal vehicles over 8 years old on Michigan roads. Road salt is a real killer.

RE: Emergency Escape - What to Do??

We have the rear ladder extension section stored & easily accessible in our bedroom closet for emergency use. This was previously suggested in an RV online forum.

RE: full time options

1)Been thinking about looking into a class A (gas) in the $100,000.00 range Max (MSRP), don't think I could afford anything decent in a diesel pusher. You should be able to buy a new $100k MH for about $75,000. There are some awesome used DP motorhomes in that $75-100 range that would make a much better full time home than a new gas powered motorhome in same price range.

Roll Call posts- where did they go?

Just wondering what happened to the Roll Call 2015 etc threads? There was some great information on Alaska travel.

RE: Spare tire for Alaska trip ?

Keep in mind the road from Destruction Bay north to Alaska is "Terrible" with miles and miles of gravel. Lots of potholes also as of one week ago.

RE: Roll Call Alaska 2015

Just an FYI We crossed into Canada this weekend and everyone should be aware of a sticky point. At Canadian Customs they are checking for fresh eggs and chicken in RVs. Neither item is allowed into Canada at the present time due to the bird Flu issue. We only had six eggs in the fridge to turnover to them for disposal.

RE: Fleetwood Flair Starter

You will be far better off taking the current starter off and taking it to an auto parts store where they can match it exactly. You will still need to know the size and make of the engine. I would guess that you have an 8.1 chevy engine, but that is only a guess without actually looking at the MH. X2 - good advise except it will probably be a 454 cu in (7.4) NOT 8.1. The 8.1 is a later model engine.

RE: New coach

On #1 I would not put the carpet material in cupboards where dishes or pots & pans are to be stored. Our experience was those items slide around and clink on one another going down the road. We found the rubberized shelving material worked better for those areas. ..................... X2

RE: TPMS in Class A Motorhomes

I agree that ALL motorhomes should have a TPMS as standard equipment. Best upgrade to our coach we have done. We bought our Truck Systems Technology 507 system about four years ago and have never had an air leak issue. Has worked flawlessly since new.

RE: Roll Call Alaska 2015

I believe we are ready for departure. https://www.rv.net/SharedContent/cfb/memberphotos/18381117/rig/IMG_0126MA44420-0001.JPG Plan on cleaning that neat sign 3 or 4 times a day!!! Actually it might look more appropriate with some mud & dirt. :B

RE: Storage Damage.

Exactly where is this storage facility that carries no liability insurance?? I've never herd of a business that carries no insurance!! A year ago in Michigan we had roofs of several storage facilities collapse with snow loads including one with my brother's MH. Several other RVs, collectible cars including one local barn full of Corvettes with some damaged beyond repair. Storage facility insurance does NOT cover contents in Michigan. Vehicle owners who did not have current comprehensive insurance lost out. Also read an interesting article recently about Liability insurance for your RV while stored. Thought about the large RV storage fires in Florida (?) over the winter. If an RV owner had canceled their Liability insurance while stored and their unit had an electrical short, fridge fire etc causing the storage facility to burn.... That would be one HUGE Liability lawsuit. Sorry, not trying to hijack the topic
