RE: Buying Newmar or Monaco

Why limit yourself to two brands? Lots of good coaches made by other manufacturers...check 'em out.

RE: Side or rear radiator diesel pusher

Side is preferred, but not a deal breaker.

RE: I love Sunday fill-ups

When at home, Sun AM, early, is the best time to refuel.

RE: Levelers Up Or Down

I keep the levelers extended when parked. It takes pressure off the tires. Same here...that's what they are there for...use them.

RE: Toad vehicle turn signals not working

Look also for a bad ground. Using a voltmeter can occasionally be difficult. I've found using a single wire with alligator clips at each end can be used as a test jumper to bypass components, providing a ground alternate. Just used one today to jump a bad tail light ground to my trailer, tail light lit right up telling me the ground wire needed to be cleaned and reattached more securely. I also like to use jumpers, but I use fused jumpers to prevent any problems with wiring. It's as simple as putting an inline fuse on one end before the alligator clip. JMO Good suggestion...check the ground.

RE: 2016 Dutch star

Not to hyjack this thread but I have a question for all you Newmar devotees. Looking at the Dutch Star in the 43' lengths. Spec sheet shows axle's as 17K steer, 20K drive, 10K tag. sounds like it ought have a GVWR of 47,000 lbs except it's listed as 44,600 lbs. Why? Good question. Mine is 17,20,12...= 49k. I did some research, the dually axle itself is actually rated 25k, but is down graded due to the lowest rated component of the system. Maybe something in your system down grades it. Call Newmar.

RE: 2016 Dutch star

Don't pay MSRP.

RE: Engine Battery Not Charging

My AC, made by Fleetwood, charges both house and chassis batteries. However, house comes first and the charge to the house batteries must be at least 13.3, if not the charger will not charge the chassis batteries. Found this out last week...MH would not start, due to non charged chassis batteries.

RE: buying used American coach

You'll have to narrow your search or give us some more information. AC has five models. Bing the year, make and model and that will get you started. I've had two ACs, one new one used. The tech support is excellent as is the service at the factory.

RE: Diesel engine question

It is far worse to run an engine at idle or high idle for 10 minutes every once in a while than it is to just let them sit. If you must warm up the motor, run it down the road and let the engine temp. come up to normal. This boils off the moisture in the oil. I did this last winter until the middle on January when the roads got covered with salt, then left it alone until April. Good advice. At an idle, a diesel will not get up to operating temp like a gasser will. Either let it sit...or run it.

RE: Survey - How Do You Store Your Class A?

RV garage with power.
Blaster Man 07/30/15 10:56am Class A Motorhomes

You need to consider ALL aspects of towing a trailer. 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: So does the auto retract awning really work!

They work but are very slow. If a gust starts the retraction, a second gust could destroy the awning as it's slowly coming in. If windy or wind is anticipated, I don't use the awning.

RE: truck stop ettiquete

My experience, like those above...Pilot/Flying J, easy. However, Loves is a PITA, I don't stop there.

RE: Newmar Dutch Star v Entegra Aspire v Forest River Charleston

Of the two, I'd opt for the Dutch Star. Of course I'm a bit biased, but you really should check out the American Coach line.

RE: 2003American Tradition 40 U

Traditions are nice coaches. Well made and well appointed. Also, excellent tech service from American Coach.

RE: RV Storage and tires

Put the jacks down, that's what they are for. Check the date code on the tires. Since you don't know their history, replacing them would probably be a good idea.
