RE: onboard GPS systems

We don't use our in dash GPS. It would cost more to update twice it than a new portable unit...so we got a Garmin a Sam's Club with life time updates.

RE: tag axle

Get the coach you want, with the size and floor plan you want. If it has a tag, fine, if not, fine. You don't want to buy a coach just because it has (or doesn't have) a tag axle

RE: Mastercraft or Bradd & Hall

In don't use either one. But your furniture at a normal furniture store. "RV" furniture is expensive because it says "RV." We bought a leather recliner, as a replacement for an uncomfortable Flexsteel piece that came with the MH, at Sam's Club.

RE: Allison question

Here's the one I use: JG Lubricant Services, they have several labs, (317) 803-3750. The guy that runs it is the engineer who was the key man in developing Transynd.

RE: Carefree SOK III Slide Topper Owners

Is there any kind of a date range for this issue...those made prior to a certain date? I have three Carefree toppers and two powered awnings. Had serious problems with all of them except the small awning over the door. All three toppers had to be replaced and the motor replaced on the main awning. The only good thing was that all failed while under warranty.

RE: Winterizing Aqua Hot System

If you have AC power, put a couple of trouble lights with 60 watt bulbs in the AH compartment. Been doing it for years, works great, no "dewinterizing" required. UNTIL you have a severe storm that cuts your 120 power, then what do you do? You do NOT need the 60 watt bulbs. Just leave the AH on 120 and THAT keeps the boiler fluid hot and the hot water coil hot and protected(until you have that storm). Doug Haven't lost power in 10 years. I use the bulbs rather than leaving the electric element on due to a weak circuit breaker in my rented space that flips off if anything other than bulbs are put on it.

RE: Black tank chemicals, Happy Campers, TST, Aqua Kem ???

The P traps in your faucets/shower prevent odors from coming from the tanks into RVs. Chemicals have nothing to do with it...water only. If you want something to help evacuate the tanks, concentrated dish soap (Dawn) will help.

RE: Putting Black Tank Chems in Grey Tank?

Won't hurt a bit. But, the traps under your sinks and shower should prevent the odor you are reporting... Agree, you don't need any of that stuff, that's what the traps are for...just like at home.

RE: K&N Air Filter

When in doubt use OEM, can't go wrong there.

RE: comparing 2 new DP's

Don't know about Forest River, but FW has great tech phone line support. When in doubt, get the floor plan the D/W likes, can't go wrong with that.

RE: Honda CRV

We are on our second CRV as a toad...great vehicle.

RE: Toyo vs. Hankook tires

Both are fine, get the ones where you get the best deal.

RE: Winter covers

No way I'd swap a covered storage building for an RV cover.

RE: sell or trade?

...You'll usually get more selling privately. That said, it's much easier to trade it... True. Much harder to sell an RV than a car. You have a very limited group interested in buying, plus the higher price.

RE: Cummins ISL 9 with Alison 4000 6 speed.

Agree with Ivylog...I think you'll fine it's an Allison 3000, that's what all ISLs that I know about have. As for the power loss, check for a turbo leak around the hose/fittings. You'll have normal RPM, but a power loss.

RE: inverter question

...I only turn on the inverter if I need it to power something... Same here, why run it if you don't need it?

RE: what is better Freightliner or Spartan

Spartan used to be a step up...side radiator, IFS and more. Now I think they are pretty much the same.

RE: Towing a 2015 Honda CR-V "four down"

Constant Velocity Transmissions (CVT) are being installed. CVT cannot be towed or lub pump installed to get around it. Nope, there is no reason a Continuously Variable Transmission (CVT) can't be designed for four down towing. Other manufacturers do it such as Ford. I've never heard of a Constant Velocity Transmission. I think you meant Continuously Variable Transmission which changes the leverage ratio using chains or belts instead of gears. If you bing it, you'll find both kinds of CVT transmissions.

RE: 275 hp Cummins

First thing I'd check is if the transmission can handle the extra horse power and torque.
