RE: Newbie mistake, after 4 years...

I had the same experience a few years back. The nice thing is...........it's the cheapest fix I've ever had on an RV :) Brian

RE: Stay in Play SMI

I have a vintage 2005 Stay N Play, wireless. Have 40K on my current coach, no problems. Mine is wired to my brake switch, as on my previous gas coach. I haven't noticed my system being activated when exhaust brake kicks in. I have over 110,000 miles on my unit, and never had a problem with it. I like the ability to activate toad brakes manually, and the system also has a latch mode, which takes the inertia component out of the equation, activating the toad brakes whenever I use coach brakes. Perhaps your brake lights aren't activated with the exhaust brake switch. Some manufacturers had the brake lights come on with the exhaust brake and some didn't.

RE: Stay in Play SMI

Ideally, sell it or trade it to SMI for the Air Force One if you have air brakes. They will give you a trade in value for your Stay N Play. If you don't go that route, you have to adjust it way down, so basically it will only come on in heavy braking. You don't want the tow brakes coming up as you're using the exhaust brake descending a 10 mile long grade. You might talk to SMI and see what they say too, they've always been very helpful with me. By the way, I had an old Stay N Play that I had on a gas rig but upgraded to the Air Force One now that I have a DP. Seems to work great, I'm glad I made the switch. Brian

Adding auto start to Generator??

I have a Onan 7500 watt generator in my 04 Fleetwood Revolution. Is it possible to add an auto start to this generator? If so, any idea how much it would cost? Thanks Brian

RE: Brag about your deal on your Tiffin diesel.

From what I've read, 25% off is common...........some get up to 30% off, but that is rare. Anything over 30% is usually an older model or for some other reason. Good Luck.

RE: can i buy just the gears on slide out motor?

I tried to a few years back with NO luck. Maybe you'll have better luck, would be nice if one could. Seems like a waste to buy the whole motor assembly just because one gear is broke. Good Luck Brian

RE: BANKS HEADERS for 2016 Winnebago 38Q

In the past, I've had a couple of motorhomes on Workhorse Chassis. I alomost did a mod to increase power and then changed my mind since the mpg really didn't change. As I remember going up a grade I didn't want anymore then 4000 rpms because the noise was unbearable. Also at this rpm, I usually got 45mph or so going up the steepest grades towing my car. I couldn't understand shelling out a bunch of $$ so I could get up a hill a few mph faster. Just my thoughts. Brian

Max HP and Torque ??

I have an 04 Fleetwood Revolution with a Cummins ISC 350hp and I believe torque is 1080lbs. My coach has a Silver Leaf that displays hp and torque. My question is, when do you get max hp and torque. I can't remember the exact numbers, but approximately the highest I've seen is around 260 hp and 800lbs of torque. Even going up very steep grades like the Grapevine or the grade leaving Las Vegas I've never seen anything close to max numbers. Just curious. Thanks Brian

RE: Anyone flat towing a Corvette?

I did see a beautiful Vette being towing the other day in Las Vegas, but it was on a trailer. Was surprised it was out in the open and not in an enclosed trailer.

When to change hoses on a Diesel Pusher ??

I have an 04 Diesel Pusher with a Cummins 8.3 350hp, side radiator. Just curious if there's a recommendation on when to change the hoses due to age. It has about 40,000 miles. Thanks Brian

Exhaust brake with Cruise Control on ??

I just noticed yesterday that with my cruise control on, the exhaust brake doesn't work. As soon as I clicked the cruise off, the exhaust brake light came on , and I could feel the exhaust brake kick in. Is this typical?? I have an 04 Revolution on a Freightliner Chassis. Thanks Brian

RE: Am I Crazy for Thinking of Stepping Back 9 Years?

I've had 2 gas motorhomes, and 3 diesels, and I'll share my opinion with you. My current motorhome has a 350hp Cummins. As far as climbing a grade, your gas rig will do just fine. It will probably keep up with the diesel, and in fact might even be a little faster (just a couple mph difference if any). Going up a 6% grade, you'll do around 45-50mph......give or take a little. Most grades are only a few miles long anyway, so a little difference in speed is not a big deal, one way or another. The big difference is noise. The gas will down shift so the RPM's increase and fans will come on to cool the transmission...........it will be so noisy, it will be difficult to talk. The DP, will down shift also, but the increase in noise is barely noticeable. That is one of the advantages of a DP. The other, is going down the other side of the grade. The exhaust brake makes brake usage minimal. My motorhome is an 04, it has 40k miles, and is in very good condition. I've owned it 2 years now. I've had to replace the lift pump, Electronic control module replaced, and just the other day, had an air leak, which was the left side ride leveler actuator. I also had to have the plastic engine coolant tank replaced. I did buy an extended service contract (extended warranty) which has helped, my out of pocket expenses on these items was approx. $1400. Oil changes cost about $250 at Speedco, and can cost several hundred dollars more at some shops. My gas 8.1 Workhorse Chevrolet use to cost about $60 for an oil change. The cost of the DP is a little more.....but the ride quality and the lack of engine noise is well worth it to me, and I know many out there will agree with that. With new tires, batteries, and good overall condition of the unit your looking at, I'm sure you'd be very happy with it, but if you decided to keep your gas unit, don't worry about grades, it will do just fine, just nosey.

RE: Recommendation for service?

If you're headed up I-5, Brazels RV in Centralia WA about 90 miles north of Portland is a very good RV service center.

RE: White water hose bulging ??

I have a new hose I've never used, so will change out the old one. The old hose came with the RV when I bought it 2 years ago, so I don't know much use it had before that. Thanks for the feedback. Brian

RE: White water hose bulging ??

Yes, I use a regulator, and it's bulging with it attached.

White water hose bulging ??

My fresh water hose is starting to bulge a little in a couple of places, is this a sing of weakness? Is it time to replace it? Thanks Brian
