RE: protocal at fuel stops

Get in line, and once a pump is open, get on the phone and talk for awhile before you get out. Then after a couple of minutes, go in and give your card to the cashier..........oh ya, don't forget to get some snacks while you're in there to eat while you're pumping. Then go out and pump the gas. Only after pumping, clean the windshield, make sure you do this while still parked at the pump. Then leave the vehicle at that pump, go inside and pay..........might as well buy some more snacks, make sure you take your time,while you're in there. Then come on out and talk on the phone a little more then start the engine, make sure you let it warm up for a few minutes before pulling forward. I've had this scenario happen twice. Once in Weed Ca by a guy re positioning a U Haul truck. One other time by a couple of gals in a SUV in Kingman AZ. You may ask, why I didn't go to another pump.......well, in both cases I was towing a car and couldn't back up. I try not to get to close now, but sometimes you can't help it. I share the above because this is what you DON"T WANT TO DO. Use common sense, be courteous and observe how other thoughtful drivers do it. Brian

RE: Screeching HWH Jacks

When extended spray the chrome portion with a lubricant. When I called them, they advised me to use WD-40. I asked them if silicon spray would be ok, and they said sure, and asked me why I prefered to use it. I told them, that WD40 will attract dust/dirt, and silicon won't. They thought that was a good reason to use silicon. Brian

RE: Refrigerator Safety Device

Divebobber, you might check this company out. http://www.fixyourfridge.com/. It's been awhile since I talked to Paul at ARPRV, but I think this is the company he recommends. I'd give him a call and check. He's a very knowledgeable person on these RV Frig units. Brian

Diesel prices finally falling !!

Gas prices have been falling the last couple of months.........down well over a dollar a gallon....yet diesel has held steady, at least in this area. Finally, diesel has started falling. Checked at our local Flying J and it's down about 20 cents from just a couple of weeks ago. Hopefully it will continue. Brian

Are tow Dolly's a Hassle?

I've always tow'd 4 down. I've been looking for a new car............I like SUV's and the choices that can be towed 4 down are very limited. So, I was just thinking, maybe buy a SUV that I like, just buy a tow dolly. Having never used one..........I'm looking for input...............the pros and cons. Thanks Brian

Ford Edge, Honda CRV or Jeep Cherokee, which to tow?

Looking to buy a new car. Will be towing it behind the motor home, plus my daily driver. Have narrowed it down to the above 3 vehicles. Looking for comments. I know the 2015 CVR are not towable, so would be a 2014 model. The Jeep Cherokee comes with 2 engines, 4 and 6 cylinders, any comments on these choices? I prefer 2 wheel drive, I have a 10,000lb tow limit on my motor home. Thanks Brian

Any problems with plastic coolant tank on Cummins engines?

Just curious if anyone has had problems with cracking on the plastic coolant tanks. I've heard there's a metal replacement. Anyone switched? I have a ISC 8.3 350hp Thanks Brian

RE: Repair Shop Wait Times. What was the longest wait?

A few years ago, I took mine in for a few minor issues. Called and they set up an appointment. I called the night before to make sure everything was still a go. Went to the office and they filled out all the paper work, came out and did a walk around..........took the keys, and said, they'd give me a call in a couple weeks, when they hoped to get to it. When I mentioned I had an appointment, they said yes, an appointment to drop it off. When I questioned them, they said that's the way they schedule, they're always at least 2 weeks out. When I again questioned them, they said that's the way they have been doing it for years. Even though they're suppose to be a very good shop, I'm never been back. Brian

RE: Question for current or retired truckers

When I'm travelling, I usually just get in the right lane and put the cruise control on about 57mph...........(speed limit here in CA for towing is 55mph, whoops I'm over by a couple) 57 or there about seem to be the typical speed of traffic in the right lane. As far as other drivers.......as a whole, most truck drivers are good, there's always the exception though, I've seen some really bad ones out there..........of course I've seen some really bad motor home drivers too. I've seen truckers doing 70 plus and motor homes towing doing 70 plus, but they are rare. Keep in mind, that some states have much higher towing speed limits then here in CA, so I assume there's always the possibility that the odd motor home or trucker from out of state is unfamiliar with our 55mph limit. My biggest complaint with AUTO drivers is they don't have a clue on how to merge into traffic. They don't look, will match you speed and just nudge up too........unaware that you can't get over because of traffic, plus they're the ones, that are suppose to adjust their speed to blend into traffic. I don't play games with them, and will try to adjust my speed, but sometimes that's difficult in heavy. traffic. Brian

RE: Inexpensive bike rack?

Thanks for the replies, I bought a Swagman 64955 Looks like it will do the job. I thought this type would be easier for me to stow my tow bar. Brian

RE: Top of the Grapevine, lost all air pressure!

Glad it all worked safely out for you. Gee in movies, if you have an air leak/break, you loose your brakes and are a run away..........same things for trains in the movies........disconnect the air hose and you have a run away train..........only in the movies .......thankfully. Biran

Inexpensive bike rack?

I'm looking for a bike rack that will fit into a 2 inch receiver. I've priced some locally, and they're all over $200.00. I just need one to carry 2 bikes. Don't want junk, but don't need a Tour de France super deluxe model either. Thanks Brian PS. I need to clarify something. I need a rack that will fit into a double receiver. The lower one will be for my tow bar for the car........upper one will be for the bike rack........so clearance is an issue. I want to be able to fold up the tow bar when I unhitch the car.

Looking for 2 inch receiver adapter for Bike Rack

Do they make an adapter that will slide over the square tubing tongue of the tow bar that has an additional 2 inch receiver for a bike rack. I know they make a double receiver, but I'd rather not add the additional length to my hitch.........seems like that would just add stress to components. Thanks Brian

Blue Ox ??

Tried calling Blue Ox the last few days, and all I get is a recording asking for me to leave my name and number. I did yesterday morning, and haven't heard anything. What's going on.......anyone know? Thanks Brian

RE: Resale Diesel or Gas

I would think there's a market for both.......just do look at all the RV's for sale online and on the lots. I've sold 3 motor homes myself.........1 gas, 2 diesels. Gas I sold in a couple of weeks 1 Diesel I sold in a couple of days Other diesel I sold in about a month All boils down to being priced fair........and someone out there wanting you coach. If you're over priced, you won't sell either a Gas or Diesel rig. Brian

Fuel Prices............WHY ??

Gas prices have dropped nearly a dollar in our area..........and diesel has dropped about 10 cents.........why hasn't diesel prices maintained the same decreases as gasoline? Brian

RE: Thinking Diesel. Am I biting off more than I can chew?

Yes, Carry a tool box. I bought one at Home Depot. i bought it when I had a gas motor home. I carry basically the same tools for my diesel as I did when I had my gas. There's always something that needs to be fixed, but 99% of the time it's a little item that can be fixed with a screw driver, or combo wrench. You're not going to do heavy maintenance on the road, that's why they have diesel shops all over. As far as carrying parts.........filters, a belt, that's about it. You could load the motor home up with parts, and I'll just about guarantee that the part the would break, would be the one you wouldn't have. Kinda of a common sense thing. You'll find out as you go along what you need. If you need something, you can always drive to the nearest store and get it. Concerning a Diesel being complicated......well yes and no. If it's a gas or diesel, they all have the typical house things, frig, sinks, TV's, Microwave etc etc...so there's not much difference there as far as maintenance. As far as the running gear.........well, they both have engines........diesels are suppose to be more reliable......but anything mechanical can have problems. Both have transmissions, drive trains, front ends etc. Diesels generally have air bag suspension, typically, very few problems there, Diesels have exhaust brakes, again, very few problems. Diesels, cost more? Diesel parts generally are more expensive, but how many parts are you going to buy, the engines are suppose to typically last a million miles. Tires are bigger, and do cost more, but this is a once in 7-10 year purchase. Typically more batteries, but again, so you have a couple more batteries to buy every few years. Oil changes...........diesels have more oil capacity......but typically you only change the oil once a year, and that should be around $200 at the nationwide truck/RV oil change store. Having owned both Gas and Diesel, I'm enjoy my diesel more, the ride and lack of noise is very nice. With that said, NOT all air suspension motor homes ride the same.......be careful.........and test drive, and then test drive some more. Good Luck Brian
