RE: Heating Your MH

We have two Lasko towers (the shorter of the group) from Wal Mart. The max watts any of these can put out is 1,500. Oil heaters are heavy, slow to heat and slow to cool down.

RE: Looking for Carefree Awning Parts

You might try Carefree...if they'll send it to you (and not a dealer). If they do send it to anybody, you might be too old to drive by the time it arrives.:(

RE: Good Bad or Ugly........I'm a Diesel Pusher owner.

Which Cummins is it? The 8.3 would be fine, the 5.9 might struggle a bit.

RE: Flexsteel Recliner won't stay reclined

A Flexsteel recliner and foot rest came with my coach. It was very uncomfortable and arm rests were so low they were useless. I sold it on Craig's list and bought a different model.

RE: Tiffin Phaeton Aqua Hot -- 400D good enough?

One other point, if not already mentioned, the 400 is propane, not diesel. The 400LP is propane, the 400D, which was stated in my original post, is diesel. DNC Correct...didn't see that.

RE: Would you buy a 200k miles Pusher?

The 200k on the diesel would not bother me as much as 200k on the coach. What is the condition of the "house" appliances after that many miles?

RE: gvwr and towing weight?

Don't "think" don't "guess" do the numbers. 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: DP with only a 7000lb or less towing capacity...why?

At a rally, I attended an Allison seminar. Their transmissions are not limited by weight, but by HP and torque. Here are the limits: All transmissions below the Allison 3000: Max HP 340, Max torque 575...not positive of these numbers. Allison 3000: Max HP/Torque is 450/1250. Allison 4000: Max HP/Torque is 650/1950.

RE: Electric Heater Recommendations?

We use two Lasko towers from Wal Mart. Two problems with oil heaters are that they are heavy and take a long time to get warm.

RE: Tiffin Phaeton Aqua Hot -- 400D good enough?

It is VERY important to PROPERLY winterize the AquaHot. You need to pump the pink antifreeze through the fresh water loop in the AquaHot. Just blowing it out can leave enough water in the loop to break it when it freezes. This will require replacement of the AquaHot (Big $$$$). Steve I just read the AH owner's manual. Seems straightforward enough. Or you can drain the water and put a couple of 60w light bulbs in there. It's worked for me down to 10 degrees. I think Tiffin is saving a couple of bucks by using smaller AHs in their coaches. Amer Coach uses nothing smaller than the 450DE and in the larger coaches uses the 650. One thing to keep in mind with the 450, if it is producing heat and you turn on hot water faucet, the heat function stops until the demand for water is no longer there. That's what my manual says, and that's how it works. The 650 can run heat and water at the same time.

RE: motorhome polish

To much work for me. I'll stick with REJEX Rejex is good stuff, but I only use it on the front and windshield. It says to use it every six months...I'm not about to polish this beast every six months! I use Nu Finish on every thing else.

RE: Would you buy an as is Newmar?

I would not even consider a coach struck by lightning. These things are electrical nightmares as they are, a lightning strike would make things even worse. I flew a twin engine turbine powered airplane that was stuck by lightning...the electronics/avionics never worked right after that happened.

RE: Great, Average or Poor deal

The DS is a nice coach, and not what would be called an "entry level" rig. However, many of what are listed as options are standard on similar rigs from other manufacturers. As mentioned, there was nothing in the ad about maintenance, a very key issue with a used coach.

RE: Hold tank treatments?

We've never used anything other than plain water. No problems. Fred Agree. Anybody that uses anything else has fallen victim to some company's marketing propaganda.

RE: Pros/Cons. Base plates, CRV, 06,11.

I have Blue Ox. I like it. It is not very visible when you are not towing. It hooks up easily. Same here. I'm using it on my second tow car.

RE: Gen and shore power

...Only if the transfer switch doesn't do what it's supposed to. This switch is supposed to cut out gen power when the shore power comes on. ... My coach is the opposite, gen power take precedence over shore power.

RE: Mileage on CR-V

We are on CR-V number two. We have friends that have an 04...120k drive miles, over 100k towing miles...purrs like a kitten. IMHO, Honda made a huge mistake by not making the '15 towable four down. All for the sake of getting two more MPG with the CVT trans.

RE: Electric Fireplace or AC/Heat pump

Get a couple of Lasko tower heaters. They put out the same amount of heat as the fireplace, but you can move them where ever you need them and don't lose a huge amount of storage space.
