RE: Constantly turn residential frig off and on

I turn ours off if we will not be using the MH for a month or longer...otherwise it stays on.

RE: Jake Brake / Pac brake question

My 2003 Magna with a C12 has a 3 stage Jake brake. There are two switches involved. One activates the Jake while the other is three position 2, 4 or 6 cylinders. My 500HP Detroit Diesel works the same way.

RE: Diesel ?

With a diesel, if you aren't using it for a long time either leave it alone or take it out and drive it far enough so ALL systems get up to operating temperature. The worse thing you can do is start it and let it idle for a long time. Unlike gassers, a diesel will not get up to operating temp at an idle.

RE: Tires

Buy the ones from the company that gives you the best deal. Your tires will age out before you run the tread off them.

RE: ISL and hesitation and chk engine lite

The easiest and cheapest first fix for a fuel problem is to change the filters. My ISL had two.

RE: Damon Daybreak Towing Capacity

This has been on here before, but here it is again. Tow rating is the lower of: 1. Coach's hitch rating. 2. Coach tow rating. 3. Chassis tow rating (sometimes different than the coach's). 4. The difference in weight between the coach's GCWR and the coach's actual weight when ready to tow.

RE: Tag axle pros / cons

Couple of points of clarification: - Some MHs do have steerable tags, American Coach being one. - If you get a 45' tag you will not lose a storage compartment. - If you get a 42'/43' tag you will lose a storage compartment.

RE: Packing to travel

No. Take nothing out. Might clear off counter. Yep, take things off and put them away that sit on table tops, counters, side tables, etc, if they will move during travel. If they sit there and don't move, like toasters and coffee pots, leave them. You'll have it figured out after a couple of trips.

RE: how do you remove watermarks on sides of rv

If the water marks are not baked on, a wet chamois will sometimes work.

RE: Tree branches scratched Motorhome

Lots of good suggestions. In order to avoid those issues, I carry a six foot ladder and a pair of heavy duty, long handled clippers and a small saw. If a limb looks bad, I cut it down prior to pulling into the space. And, no, I don't ask for permission first. I'd rather say, "sorry, I won't do it any more," than pull in and scratch the MH.

RE: New Toad - 2014 CRV

We are on CRV number two, one of the best toads on the road. No problems with either one.

RE: Tow capacity

the amount of weight you can safely tow will be the lesser of the following: - the gross combination weight rating of the MH minus the actual weight of the MH as it is loaded and configured fir travel - the weight rating of your hitch - the weight rating of your tow bar ...and: - the coach's tow rating. - the chassis's tow rating, some are different from above.

RE: Running generator while traveling

...Running the generator and A/C is no problem. It doesn't hurt anything... Agree, that's why it's there.

RE: Anyone chip a Cummins ISB 6.7 XT?

Be sure to check to see that you don't exceed transmission limits.

RE: tag axels

I'm not convinced a steerable tag is worth the expense and maintenance costs. Not to mention when it breaks. My tag is semi lift able, still drags a bit. However, these tires will age out long before the tread is gone.

RE: Diesel generator.

A good first step is to change the fuel filter.

RE: What are the proper ways to keep batteries charged.

What Brett said. On my coach, when on shore power, the charger charges the coach batteries. However, if putting out 13.3v or more, the charge goes through to the chassis batteries and charges them as well.

RE: Do you name your baggage compartments?

Street side or curb side, front to rear.
