RE: Extended Service Plan for older Class A

Read the fine print in the policy before you sign anything or give them any money. There are usually many things not covered. Some have good luck with the policies, others not so much. Check the age of the tires, don't just look at the tread depth. RV tires usually age out before they wear out.

RE: Motor Home estate auction

RE: Disconnect my battery

I don't think disconnecting the battery will harm the car in any way. However, I have been told the computer will lose its memory and will have to relearn how you drive, which may take a few miles snd start/stop cycles. I have noticed that my car and truck act a little different when I replace or have to disconnect the battery. Cars can sit for a long time with a dead, or no battery and not hurt anything.

RE: Airstream Land Yacht 39 Diesel or Winnebago Vista

Condition is the major factor when buying a used RV. Which one is in the best condition? How well were they maintained, are any service records available? Winnebago generally has a good reputation for quality, but so did the Airstream motorhomes as far as I know. You're comparing a diesel pusher to a gas unit, that will get you different responses. Which floor plan works best for you. Water leaks will do major damage if not repaired quickly. Can you check for evidence of leaks? There is a lot to consider when comparing these two RV's. TIRES: Another thing to consider is the tires. Most RV tires age out before they wear out and most are replaced between 6-9 years. Check the size of the tires snd compare prices. Check the date code on the tires currently on the units you are considering. They may need to be replaced. Don't just go by tread depth. Factor the price of tires into the selling price of the RV..

RE: Septic Tank For Fulltime

Don't make the mistake of thinking you can now leave the black valve open all the time. As said above, keep it closed and wait until at least 3/4 full before dumping. X2. You still need to treat your RV as a RV when it comes to dumping the holding tanks. I agree with using PVC pipe. It will drain better and be less susceptible to wind movement.

RE: Is this a good deal for Jayco 273 vs Coleman 250TQ?

How much would a 2018 Jayco 273 cost? That would give you a better price comparison. The original buyer took the depreciation hit on the Jayco you are considering.

RE: Another reason to be careful when shopping at Camping World

As word of their pricing and policies spread, CW researches new practises for keeping customers in their stores. :B It's called Customer Retention. :)

RE: 17 Ways to Cook with Beer

RE: headlights on new cars to bright or is it me?

I don't think they're too bright. It's new technology and we need to adapt. LED street lights are becoming common, yes they are bright, just don't stare at the 'light bulb' and you will be okay.

RE: Interesting way to dump the black tank

It was better than dumping your holding tanks in a storm drain or on a Walmart parking lot. :)

RE: Custom one of a kind DIY 5th wheel

It's definitely unique. I wonder how much it weighs compared to a similar size factory built unit? Thnks for posting.

RE: ARRRRRRRGH!! I Can't Put It Back Together! UPDATE!!

First rule of "inelegant tinkering" is keeping all the parts! I take pictures before I take unfamiliar stuff apart.

RE: Insiders

Would you prefer barking dogs, screaming kids, loud music, revving engines, noisy family arguments, idling diesels, etc.? Sometimes silence is golden. :)
