RE: Does Exhaust brake activate brake lights?

...There is NO agreed way to do this. On some coaches, the exhaust brake activates the brake lights, on others it does not... Yep, different manufacturers rig their coaches in different ways. My lights come on when the engine brake is working.

RE: Power Gear Leveling System

Email PG, they will answer promptly. No, HWH and PG are not the same company.

RE: 5th Wheel Newbie

That is just way too much trailer for your truck. Towing rating has very little to do with fifth wheel towing. What is the scaled weight of your truck loaded ready to go camping? Subtract that from the GVWR of the truck. That is how much room you have left over for hitch and pin weight. Generally speaking pin weight will be 20% of the trailers ready to travel weight. Since you dont have that yet, use 20% of the trailers GVWR. Agree. The formula for towing capacity is the GCWR of the truck minus the weight of the truck when ready to tow (includes everything...hitch, pin weight, passengers, gear, etc.

RE: Arkansas to Florida

Been making that trip for years. The shortest route is US 65 to I 20 east, south at Jackson on US 49 to Hattiesburg (go around HBG on I 55), US 98 to Mobile, I 10 east to I 75 south, to FL Turnpike south to Okeechobee. The trip on US 65 is very nice, mostly four lane, little traffic.

RE: Jeep or CRV - the search for a toad continues

...Effy, obviously we like the Honda CR-V. It just does everything right. -AWD -Seats five -Good fuel economy -Comfortable ride -Weighs 3,400 lbs. -Reliable ... That about covers it. Unless you need a true 4wd, the CRV is the perfect tow car.

RE: Wintering in a Class A Motorhome

John S. has a good idea...the Aqua Hot will work much better than a propane furnace (or two). The AH with a couple of small AC powered heaters will keep you toasty.

RE: Class A DP door opinions??

What we "prefer" is really irrelevant...the majority of diesels are bus type, door in front.

RE: Power seats

Check the connection between the seat and where the wire goes through the floor.

RE: Buying a used Diesel

I lost about 2 miles per gallon. Yep. The gubmint, in their infinite wisdom, came out with the ULSD, to reduce emissions. Good idea. But, since our MPG goes down, we dump more pollutants back in the atmosphere because we must burn more fuel.

RE: Who weighs?

...I have by axels not side by side... Same here, and will get four corners weighed at a rally next month.

RE: Toad Advice

5,000 might not be your actual tow capacity. It's been on here before, but here it is again: Work the numbers: 1. GCWR minus tow vehicle's actual weight. 2. Hitch capacity. 3. Coach tow rating. 4. Chassis maker's tow rating. Remember too, it's the LESSER of any of the above......Dennis Correct...forgot to put that in.

RE: pros and cons of hydro heat

...The hydro hot system will keep you plenty warm, but without help you will certainly drink some fuel. That is the only downside we have found after a couple years of use.......they drink diesel fuel, and not my the teaspoon....lol... They burn .4 GPH according to the manufacturer.

RE: Transfer Switch Location

Hopefully a fellow PA driver will come along and help you out. They put those things everywhere, mine is under the storage shelf under the bed.

RE: what year is this coach

The only date that matters is the title.

RE: Looking to upgrade my Fleetwood, Looking at American Dream\Eagle.

I believe American Coach stopped making the "Dream" after model year 2001. They continue to make the Tradition,Revolution,Eagle,and Heritage.In 2009, they introduced the Allegiance, but after two model years, it was replaced by the Revolution, which was moved over from the Fleetwood line. I have always been a fan of American Coach and feel they offer a great product. (They are a division of Fleetwood RV) Good post, and yes, the Dream is long gone.

RE: Where to get Power Gear service for levelers

Most RV service centers can work on PGs.

RE: Roof Paint

Nobody has mentioned whether or not these paints will run. If they will, the OP will spend his time after every rain washing the white runoff from the sides of his RV...which must be done soon after the rain, or they will become permanent.
