RE: peeling decals on my Tiffin Allegro Bus

It would seem that if Tiffin lives up to its reputation of standing behind their product, they should have those decals available. Whether or not they provide them at no charge is maybe a dream. Regarding removing the old decals, like what was mentioned, it can be done, but there is no "easy" way to do it. Probably a gentle heat gun to soften the adhesive and a plastic putty knife. I have heard that Goo-Gone removes the residual adhesive. I have used Crud Cutter as well. Both are available at Home Depot.

RE: California coast

Regarding Yosemite, you can find spots as there are cancellations all the time, but you have to be johnny on the spot and hit the Reserve America website several times a day. It can be done, but you have to be flexible on your time. The drive up Hwy 1 can be a bit of a challenge, especially around Big Sur. It gets narrow and curvy. Nothing that cannot be done, but it is a challenge. Take your time, pull off often, and try not to sweat the time factor. If you decide not to try Yosemite, there are literally dozens of campgrounds around Mammoth lakes that rival Yosemite. Granted, you don't have the Yosemite Valley, but there are plenty of other options. Fishing, horse back riding, devils post pile, Rainbow falls, endless hiking possibilities, good food in town, free shuttle buses, nice camp grounds. While I love Yosemite, it is a bit of a zoo. Tour buses, crowds, overly eager rangers staring you down. If you have a dog, expect to get a lecture about leashes, potty bags, yadda yadda yadda. It's frankly overdone, but just the same, beautiful.

RE: checking for recall service

Since you have the VIN, call the chassis mfg and ask them. They generally have those records readily available.

RE: This Isn't the Slow Season For Motor Home Sales

Just like RVing, its not the destination, it's more the journey. Be patient. The right one will come along.

RE: Advise on 2015 Fleetwood Storm 28F?

Its the Ford V-10 or nothing. There are no current alternatives since GM got out of the RV market. Diesel, yes. BTW, the Triton is the Ford V-10

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?

RE: LP GAS ISSUE

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.
