RE: Do I Really Need A Brake Buddy

Quote from FMCA Towing Guide: "Dingy brakes are mandatory in most states and Canadian provinces; besides, any time extra weight is added, there must be a way to slow it down without over taxing the brakes on the MH."

RE: Roofs... fiberglass or rubber?

Higher end coaches use fiberglass, so I would 'assume' they are better.

RE: FMCA to allow Towables Owners to join

Those who are FMCA members and don't like the change...talk to the people that did not vote. Wikipedia says there are over 100,000 members, and 9,800 voted.

RE: car for towing

2012-2016 Honda CRV. Reliable and if you get the AWD model you will have rear wheel drive when front wheels slip. I have a 2012 and works great for me. Agree, we are on our second CRV, perfect tow car. One correction to the above post....only CRVs 2014 and earlier are towable four down. 2015 and newer have the CV transmission...can't tow 'em.

RE: Do you like your electric toilet

The only problem with an electric toilet is that it uses lots of water...on both modes of operation.

RE: First decent trip and pretty surprised at the mileage...

Worst thing to affect MPG is a head wind. None of these engines, gas or diesel, care about that wind, they just get thirstier.

RE: Dash Air suddenly quit

If you do the numbers, on my coach at least, you will find you will burn more fuel in an hour running the dash air than you will running the generator and the roof air for an hour. For this reason, I never us the dash air.

RE: DEF Additive

Walmart is a bit more expensive than the pump, but lots easier to use. Atwood's 2 1/2 gal jugs are the same as the pump.

RE: DEF Additive

The pump is a bit cheaper than Walmart, and the same price as Atwoods.

RE: Tag axle

You have a novelty, there are not many tag axle gassers.

RE: Diesel fuel

You can always do better that the Flying J price, use Gas Buddy and look around a little bit. In five years what we've saved in diesel cost will pay for six new tires on our DP. Bill Agree, Flying J, TSA, Loves, Pilot, etc are all higher than anybody else. The truckers have national contracts and get lots better prices than individuals.

RE: My engine won't run

Could have bad fuel or lost prime.

RE: oil change frequency

I do it annually because that's what the manual says. When It's out of warranty, I'll go the oil sample route.

RE: Family Motor Coach Rallies

The true reason for FMCA wanting more members is to finance FMCA Assist. They cannot afford that program with the current number of members. Here's a description quoted from their web site: "FMCAssist Medical Emergency and Travel Assistance Program From the first day of your membership, you’re automatically covered 24/7 by FMCA’s Medical Emergency and Travel Assistance plan, FMCAssist. It’s built into your membership, at no extra cost to you, and coverage is worldwide. In case of an accident or serious illness during your travels, you, your motorhome, your children, your grandchildren and your pets will be returned home."

RE: new tire selection

...replacing all 6 Michelin 235/80/R22.5 XRV tires on my rig. Blew one out last night.Tires are 10 yrs old. Thinking of going with the Sumitomo brand Rv tires. ... At 10 years old, you're lucky only one blew...get the Sumitomos. RV tires age out before we can wear them out.

RE: tire size upgrade

You need some more information, such as will the duallies rub together, what will it do to the Allison shift pattern and speedometer, can you make a maximum steering wheel turn with out the tires hitting the fender well and do you really need more tire capacity? Normally the manufacturer puts OEM tires on that will support the max weight for the axle and coach.

RE: Anyone ever drive off with a slide out left out?

Drove off with the door awning out once, but not a slide.

RE: Air Suspension Storage Recommendations Needed

My manual says to store it with jacks down...that's what they are for. Also, during the leveling process, the air is automatically dumped.
