RE: REV group discontinued phone tech support

Was talking to a friend of mine who just traded his American Coach for an Entegra....REV group in what I think is the dumbest move so far this year has discontinued phone tech support for all its brands including HR and Monaco etc..If you get to customer service, if your vehicle is still under warranty and you need something, they will only ship to a dealer and not to the owner. Also you must go to the dealer or one of their three service centers for warranty work. All older HR and Monaco people and materials have been "lost" and if you call you won't get anyone who can possibly help you. I actually could not believe this, so I called the HR line and asked for help with my leveling system to test this out. They had no information they could offer me. What a laughing stock of a decision and a sad one for any current REV group coach owners. Entegra, Newmar and Tiffin will benefit quite much by this. A Happy Easter to all. This is not firm. The ACA president is working on it.

RE: Washing my Class A roof - will it support my weight?

Agree with the others, it will hold you fine. During the course of ownership, you'll have to get on the roof often. Things on the roof will need maintenance and to be repaired. Plus I get on the roof every time we are parked under trees...don't want the slides to come in with pine cones or branches on them.

RE: tires

Recently, at a rally, we had a seminar given by a guy not associated with Michelin. He said Michelin puts an additive in their tires that, after the tires have been sitting for along time, will look like spider cracks on the surface. He said after the tires have been run for a while, the spider cracks, which are part of the substance they put in to protect them from the sun, will disappear. Sounded like BS to me, but he was correct and that's what happened to my OEM tires.

RE: Sofa Sleeper

Nothing wrong with a pull out if you have opposing slides, plenty of room.

RE: Purchasing rv without seeing in person

A number of years ago, we bought a new DP sight unseen, we did see a similar model at a different dealer. It had some problems, but nothing we would have found if we had driven the 300 miles to see it.

RE: Heated floors

A coach with tile floors should come with heated floors. Unheated tile in the winter make the whole coach cold.

RE: Quikee Step problem

Have you ever lubricated it? Good question, it should be lubricated monthly.

RE: Flexsteel and Newmar

Flexsteel won the contract with the lowest bid. With the low bid, you get low quality.

RE: Tire inflations

Weigh your coach then find the correct TP for each weight, for each axle from the tire manual that came with your coach...or get one off the internet. Add 10% to the number in the manual and use the same TP for each side of the axle. Here's a great air compressor that is on sale, I carry one with me: https://www.lowes.com/pd/PORTER-CABLE-6-Gallon-Electric-Pancake-Air-Compressor/4764588

RE: 2006 American Tradition advice?

The Tradition is a fine coach with excellent support from the AC tech line. As noted, 100k is nothing if the Cat got service regularly.

RE: Induction cook tops in most new Coaches?

Have you actually measured the consumption? My NuWave on the highest possible setting draws 1300 watts or about 12 amps. However run times are not terribly long--so possibly it might use 30 amp-hours per day. Same for the Induction cook top, it uses more than the refer, but is much better and safer than propane. Seven amps on a True Induction. http://www.trueinduction.com/

RE: Induction cook tops in most new Coaches?

The new residential refers use very little power. My Whirlpool uses two to three amps with the compressor running. Same for the Induction cook top, it uses more than the refer, but is much better and safer than propane.

RE: In Winter Storage, Should I Run Engine?

...Yes to running generator under some load. If you have a diesel MH do not start engine unless you drive it 25-30 miles... If it is a diesel, agree with above.

RE: Block heater location

The plug on my last two coaches was in the bay with the power cord. It was activated by a switch in the back of the coach near the closet.

RE: MagneShade

Great product. Held on by very strong magnets. I had five of their shades on my last RV....driver's window, wind shield, door and pass windows and a custom shade that covered two side windows. Expensive, but you get what you pay for.

RE: Inputs/Ideas on insulating dump bay compartment??

Two 60 watt old style light bulbs will make it toasty there. Also lay something in the bottom to cover up all the drain holes.

RE: At what temp do you remove water hose?

Wrap the hose in heat tape (and the CG's faucet if necessary). Problem solved.

RE: 425 isl

You probably have an Allison 3000...max HP is 450, hardly worth the expense.

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."
