RE: Diesel fuel additives

This debate rages on. However, one additive you should always add is a biocide if you store your coach.

RE: Who treats their diesel fuel?

The only thing I use is Biobor JF at every fill. It's a biocide that is used by the military for all fuels not only diesel. 1.5oz per fill up and you don't have to worry about microbe growth in the fuel, it also says it increases the lubrication of the injection system. A biocide is especially important if your coach sits for long periods.

RE: Looking to install new tires.

Will they fit and will they carry the load?

RE: How fast do you drive your rig?

I run 60...Allison gets into 6th gear and the diesel just loafs along. Other considerations...tires are speed rated for 75 and the Honda CRV is rated for 65. Plus, anything above that and the mileage heads south.

RE: led bulb source

My Wal Mart has a good selection.

RE: Blow front tire, what do you do?

On my blowout, there was no violent pulling to the right, just some shaking of the wheel, and a slight tugging to the right. JMHO, but since I went through this, I don't care what the "experts" say, the last thing I wanted was more speed, so accelerating made no sense and never crossed my mind. As an old helicopter and airplane pilot, maintaining control was my first thought, slowing and getting off the road the second thought.

RE: Blow front tire, what do you do?

I had a blow out last week on I 55, south of Joliet, IL. Going 60 with the cruise on...35k diesel pusher, with 295/80R22.5 tires...right front blew. The last thing I wanted was more speed, so I tapped the cruise off and slowed to a safe speed before getting off the road. The most dangerous part of the whole experience was awaiting Good Sam with the street side of the coach 18" from bumper to bumper 18 wheelers. The curb side of the coach was as far off the road as I could get it...next to a 45 degree embankment. There was no control issue, therefore, increasing speed would have done more harm than good.

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.
