RE: Sidewall Problems/"Gassing"/Checking of Paint

RE: Sidewall Problems/"Gassing"/Checking of Paint

I am having a dialogue with my coach maker (Thor) about the paint degradation on my 2005 Mandalay caused by deficient sidewalls. I am looking for some financial accomodation for the "disappearing" suface paint (clearcoat). This problem has been discussed in various threads here and elsewhere. One of the tech reps is asking me who made the defective sidewalls (I would have thought they knew that..). I have always been told/read online it was Owens Corning. But I recall another company name being mentioned. Can anyone confirm what company actually supplied the sidewalls in the time frame 2005-?2008? that causes this problem..especially to the darker paint areas? Thanks, Hank 2005 Mandalay 40B Diesel Pusher Currently in Apache Junction AZ After 10 years? Is that reasonable?

I would look at the propane safety shut off. It is shutting off the propane for a reason. Leak or a malfunction in the propane detector.

RE: Hello all! First time buyer, 1985 Pace Arrow 31'

Here are the "big Items" you should pay attention to. These are the things that can let you down. 1. Tires - Don't trust tires over 7 years old. Look for the date codes. If you don't know how to read them simply Google tire date codes for help 2. Rubber - Hoses, belts, etc should be replaced. In particular upper and lower radiator hoses, and the heater hoses. 3. Cooling system. Have the radiator checked by a specialist. I can only assume the RV sat for long periods. The radiator is subject to clogging simply from sitting. 4. Brakes. Need I say more? 5. Obviously, the engine and transmission should be checked. Yes the RV only has 60K on it, but that engine and trans has been under constant stress moving that RV around. They tend to wear out faster than car engines due to the duty it has to perform. 6. Filters. Fuel, oil, air etc. 7. Batteries. You probably have three. If they have been sitting, they are probably at the end of their life cycle. 8 Refrig - Make certain it works. New ones (three way, gas, 12V and 110V) are very expensive. North of 2K from what I have heard. Other than that, you should be good to go. Just expect lots of little things to go wrong. Hopefully, just annoying things. Have a tool box and a good attitude and you will be fine.

Older Class A

Many people come into these forums looking for an inexpensive Class A. Well, here is one that has met the reserve, at $3,200 with less than 30,000 miles on it. HERE

RE: Transmission slipped temporarily(?)

Clutch plates in the transmission were not engaging. Low fluid, dirty fluid, clogged filter, bad modulator, all sorts of possibilities. When transmission fluid burns, white smoke is seen. Best to have an expert look at it.

RE: .

Sorry to hear about your troubles. The tires if original, are due to be replaced. 6-7 years is the expected life. Nothing out of the ordinary there. The water intrusion, while not good, you really only have yourself to blame. You assumed the water was not a big deal and wiped it up. You are now discovering it is a big deal. A very big deal. You should have talked to Camping World about it as soon as the problem was discovered, not two years later. Yes you may have bought someone's old problems, but it seems as it you made some incorrect assumptions. I am really sorry, and I know you must be frustrated, but I don't see where Canping World did anything wrong. Best of luck.

RE: Roof Repair Services

Novice here on issues like this. Just thinking out loud here. You are going to re-engineer the entire roof? They are going to remove the fiberglass roof and replace it with an EPDM roof? I dunno, but that seems really extreme and really expensive. Maybe overkill. I would really think hard about a project like that. To be honest, is an RV of that vintage really worth sinking in what could be $5,000 - $8,000. Even after you spent that much money, what will you have as an end result? An RV designed for a fiberglass roof that now has a EPDM roof that may or may not actually perform properly. To my thinking, that is good money going after bad. Just my opinion, and I really know nothing about your situation. Just shooting from the hip.

RE: Winnebago CEO email

Nice going. I am certain Don appreciates your posting his email address on a public forum. Not good.

RE: Costs/types of RV storage shelter?

Currently keep RV in outdoor storage in Orange County. Just received notice of another rent increase. For years have weighed the pros/cons of second home in high desert. The prospect of "free" RV storage tips the balance in favor some. But I wouldn't want RV sitting in the intense high desert sun. The homes I'm considering are sound cosmetic fixers but don't include RV parking garages. The goal here is not some kind of dream house but a clean usable second home without breaking the bank. What are prices for permanent shade canopy installed suitable for shading a 25' RV? I would prefer some side shading too but don't want to spend for a full-on barn or garage.

RE: Thor Palazzo The Good Bad And Ugly Please

Here is the short version of what happened with the Palazzo as reported 1. Customer had terrible slide problems among other things. Thor stepped up and agreed to give him a brand new RV. 2. As the new RV was being delivered, it was totaled in a wreck. 3. Thor once again stepped up, gave him the next higher level RV. This one made it into the hands of the customer. As far as I know, all is good.

RE: chirping alternator

For testing purposes only, rub a bar of soap on the belt for the alternator. (I have to say it....WITH THE ENGINE OFF) If the squeak goes away, then you know it is the belt. If not, then you need to look at the alternator itself.

RE: Opinions of this coach.

I do not see anything strange about the pictures... yes a 14 year old Monaco can look that good. I do not have a problem with the ad referenced in the first post... he gives a phone number and a location... most scammers do not. The wording of the ad did not raise any red flags, so I called him. Yes he has it advertised in ten different cities. He speaks American English and I could hear his wife in the background. It has Hankook tires. He knew the correct answers to several other questions. It's not too good to be true. His number is 907-398-4523 in AK That number is also list as a SCAM number. It is? The name associated with the RV is Paul- The number listed is also associated with a fishing guide, also named Paul. Fishing Guide. It all fits together well. No scam.

RE: Opinions of this coach.

The phone number listed is from Alaska. The RV is in Arizona. If this is a scam, it is a good one. The description is written by someone who knows RV's. I am feeling it is legit.
