RE: Is 360 hp enough for for 38-40 ft class A

It's not the HP that gets a MH over the mountains, it's the torque. And these motorhomes have some incredible torque. For example, the Cummins ISB6.7 has 200-360 hp and 520-800 LB/FT torque (same size engine (6.7L) you find in Dodge Ram pickups). The ISC8.3 has 380 HP and 1050 LB/FT of torque, 8.3L. Bump it up to the next level and the ISL9 has 400-450 HP and 1250 LB/FT of torque. The king of Cummins motorhome engines is the ISX15 with 600 hp and 1950 LB/FT torque. These are the current specs from Cummins website. It also depends on which model of a brand one gets. For example, the Tiffin Phaeton 40' comes with the ISC engine, while the higher level Tiffin Allegro Bus 40' has the beefier ISL engine. Same length, different engines. If it were me, I would be checking the torque rating for any motorhome I was looking at. I would hate to think I was buying an ISC engine when it was actually an ISB. Quite true, HP is only part of the question. Cu inches and torque play key roles.

RE: Sewer Odor (most likely the grey tank)

...But your tanks are a closed system with a roof vent. Something is wrong...You should never have a black or gray tank odor inside your rv. Adding chemicals or deodorizers is just a waste of good money... Exactly.

RE: Lower Gas Prices...Are you RVing More?

...If 100 dollars breaks you then a motorhome is not the hobby for you... True. If you can't afford the fuel, find something else to do for fun.

RE: Synthetic Oil - Do you use it in Cummins Engine?

To answer the OP's question, no, can't see the advantage. If you have engine preheat, the dino starts fine in cold weather.

RE: Winter Storage Questions

I agree with Brett...add a biocide. It will keep "stuff" from growing.

RE: Enough Power?

Any MH will take you to the top of the hill. Some faster than others. All the V10 drivers will tell you it will do fine...if you can stand the roar of the engine at max RPM, screaming.

RE: Battery Tender

As I stated earlier, the Harbor Freight model is not a charger and will not charge a battery. If fully charged it will "maintain" it. That's what it says on the box.

RE: Battery Tender

Becareful buying a charger from Harbor Freight. They have one that is a maintainer, but it will not charge.

RE: Should I wax the fiberglass roof?

...Should I also wax the roof?... Only if you are really really bored.:)

RE: Storage question

Jacks down, that's what my manual says.

RE: Vail Pass

The OP has a gasser and a number of posts are from guys with diesels...that's an apples to orange comparison. Also, the altitude gain will not affect the turbo diesels like it will a non turbo gasser.

RE: North or South

South in the winter, north in the summer.

RE: Safari Serengeti DP - Any Opinions?

We RV with friends that have a '94 model with the 8.3 Cummins. Still going strong at 200k plus on the odometer.

RE: How to REMOVE ugly vinyl letters?

Hair dryer and a single blade straight edged razor.

RE: Engine Coolant

Whatever Final Charge you use, it should meet Cummins 14603 requirements. I use Peak Final Charge Global Extended Life. Zerox Extreme Extended Life also works.

RE: Class A Towing capacity

Your towing capacity is normally the lowest of: - GCWR minus weight of MH when ready to travel (loaded). - Hitch capacity. - MH tow capacity. - Chassis tow capacity...some times the last two are different.

RE: Considering installing an electric pressure washer

I have a pressure washer but do not use it on the MH. If not very careful, it will drive water where it's not supposed to be, and if you have stick ons, it will loosen them.

RE: Covering cars when towing

Our MH has a rock guard that is behind the rear wheels. It is the width of the MH and very close to the ground...our tow vehicle is very seldom (if ever...never noticed it) hit with debris.
