RE: Removing Carpet from 2005 Winnebago Journey

Tile (ceramic) is very heavy and prone to cracking. Better off with vinyl that looks like tile. Fast install, easy to clean, and weights nothing.

RE: Purchasing a New Coach -> Trading Old

If I were you, I would sell it privately but keep the price low. You will probably get a quote from the dealer something about 30% below low NADA. List the defects as honestly as you can. In real estate, the fixer uppers get more attention than the new ready to move in types. Why? There are many people out there willing and able to do the work and are excited to do so. RV's are no exception.

RE: Tires and Wheels

Putting larger tires will really mess up the performance of the RV. Taller tires equals taller or higher gears. If you increase the tire size, you will have to change the gearing in the rear end (higher gear ratio). Ask anyone who has put large tires on a Jeep or SUV. Requires gear change, speedo gear change and who knows what else. Not a good plan.

RE: class A brake job

appreciate the responses. I got another estimate and am getting more not less confused. this one is for $1500, 12 hrs labor, pads and 'turning' rotors $180 for all, plus seals all wheels. This guy is just turning rotors, the other was replacing them saying they don't turn them anymore. from the responses 12 hours sounds??=3hrs per wheel. as someone said removing rotors turning them or buying new, replacing seals and pads, wheels on and off 6 total with rear doubles. maybe 3 hrs is about right. Anyone care to weigh in on turning vs replacing rotors, got one vote for replacing. Question I have here is yes rv much heavier than a car but is that accounted for in size and thickness of rv rotors?? I guess I didn't read your original post correctly. Doing all wheels and pads, $1500 is not out of line. 12 hours labor is about right including seals.

RE: class A brake job

Thinking it through, if your part costs are about $475 plus some fluid etc, and your labor is about 5 hours which is not unreasonable, then I think a decent price would be about $1000. That is just for the front brakes. If you did it yourself, which I do not recommend, unless you really know what you are doing, your could get it done for about $500.00 I just did the front brakes on my Tundra this morning. New rotors and pads it was $175.00

RE: class A brake job

Considering how much a car let alone an RV relies on the front brakes (70%) of your stopping power is from the front brakes, I would be inclined to replace the rotors, not resurface them. You need all the heat eating meat on those rotors as possible. Just my 2 cents.

RE: class A brake job

Quick research shows new rotors at around 175-200 each. Brake pads about 70 for a set. Not sure how they are coming up with the price you are being quoted. Keep shopping

RE: thor tuscany 45lt

Simply do a search on Thor and you will find quite a bit of information. Most not all that good.

RE: Deal or No Deal? (new here)

If it runs and the tires have some life left to them, that is a smoking deal! Good luck.

RE: Crotchety old man

It ain't over until you leave the left blinker on for over 50 miles.

RE: American Tradition 1999 model

Yep. Not a bad price at all. Not to offer buzz kill, but do check the dates on the tires. The tires represent almost 10% of the asking price.

RE: Towing 2005 Jeep Wrangler

"if you DONT disable the ignition you'll run the battery down (while towing)." Not true on a 2005! 2006 and prior Jeeps had an "OFF, not locked" position in the ignition switch. THAT is the position the switch has to be in while towing (as noted in the Owners Manual). I towed a 2006 Wrangler Rubicon Unlimited many miles with the switch in the "OFF, not locked" position. Since my son's 2003 Rubicon has that type switch, I'm fairly sure the 2005 does as well. My 2000 Wrangler had the off position as well. No need to pull fuses.

RE: deleted topic

Frankly, I would change the name of this thread. You are trading on liable issues here.

RE: deleted topic

The deal is... there was no deal. Stop blaming the dealer for your lack of action, meaning no deposit, no contract.

RE: deleted topic

You have to look at it form the dealers standpoint. Ever heard the term "Be Back"? That refers to the majority of consumers who say "I'll be back". of 20 people that say "I'll be back" maybe one will actually be back. You are that one of 20. No deposit, no contract, you were considered a "Be Back". They are going to sell to who ever comes up with the cash first. Cash talks. No amount of emails or calls is going to change that. Harsh reality.
