RE: What are your hobbies

If you have an RV, You usually don't have time for other hobbies! Terry. Agree!

RE: FMC Magazine April 2017 issue

On page 20, a gentleman inquired about flat towing a 2015 Silverado behind his class A. I have the same situation with my 2016 Silverado and have a much better solution to the problem and some other pointers. If anyone knows this guy please pm me and I'll give you my phone number to give to him. Why not post your solution here and we can all benefit.

RE: When to change Allison Transmission oil

I'd have it analyzed first, It may not need changing. That's what I would do.

RE: How old is too old?

Has it been stored inside or outside, that will make a big difference.

RE: 2017 Tiffin Allegro Bus 45 OPP depreciation

If you are really really concerned about costs and depreciation...you need a different hobby.

RE: Coach batteries

if you go with AGM make sure your inverter-charger is capable of charging them. some are not. My original inverter in my coach was not capable AGMs are the way to go...my inverter/charger has a setting for AGMs.

RE: Canada Trip Planning

Be very sure to research entering CA very closely...no guns, not all medical insurance is accepted, animals, foods allowed, alcohol, etc. Also, check for coming back in to the US.

RE: Opinions on Newmar Dutch Star

...have continually started it and operated its systems. How are Spartan chassis? What about the reputation of the Cummins/Allison combo?... Spartan, Cummins and Allison are tops. However, he did more harm than good by just starting it. If you start a diesel it needs to be taken out and driven...it will never even get warm at an idle. Bottom line...too old and too many miles. The miles are okay for the engine/trans, but too many for the coach.

RE: Shower mixing valve

Get the same brand that you are replacing, then maybe all the fixtures and plumbing will line up and fit perfectly.

RE: Oil change at Lazy Days, Tampa and was overfilled

I go to a mom and pop diesel shop that has been in business for years. They put in the exact amount of oil I give them, which I purchase at Sams. Everybody's happy.

RE: residential refrigerator locks

We use stretchy rubber or long pieces of velcro, lots of locks don't work with the bottom freezer. A long bungee will work (not the super strong black ones), just use caution not to scratch the door with the ends.

RE: Curbside or Streetside Kitchen?

Who cares, what difference does it make? We've had six RVs...kitchen has been on both sides...works fine on either side. Kitchen location was not was a consideration in buying any of them.

RE: Freightliner or Spartan on new 40' Dutch Star

FL has a number of different chassis. Most DPs have the XCM, higher end models get the SLM.

RE: Freightliner or Spartan on new 40' Dutch Star

The coach brand would not affect my decision. I've had a Spartan on a 41' coach and a FL on this 45' coach. Both have IFS and side radiators. Both are fine, drive them, you won't be able to tell the difference.

RE: Entegra or newmar

I think Newmar is exactly right that every 40 foot motor home has to have a tag. The reason is because without the tag it would be overloaded. Every one. Two years ago we traded an American Coach (they called it 40' but it was actually 40' 11"), single axle. Well within all weight limits.

RE: What I learned about big DP's at the FMCA rally.

You shouldn't have to run the tires at max pressure. Inflate them based on the actual weight they are carrying, not the max pressure listed on the side wall. I have two 315s and six 295s, none are anywhere near max pressure...on a 49k coach.

RE: GAWR - Spartan rating vs. Axle mfr rating...

Strange. I have the opposite of that scenario my drive is 21K per the axle mfg and Newmar down rates it to 20K. Hopefully the unit you are looking at has a tag which mean you'll have more capacity than you would ever use even with the 19K drive. Same here. I was told by the chassis manufacturer that the axle rating is the lowest rating of all the components of the axle and parts. The lowest rating of all associated parts is the rating the "axle" gets.

RE: Is a Dutch Star better

A 2010 model with four owners is one thing I'd check out.

RE: What do I flat tow?

We towed a 2000 Jeep GC for many years, but we now tow a 2014 Honda CR-V, which is even better. It is the last CR-V that can be towed with 4-wheels down. Any CRV 2014 and earlier.
