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.

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.

RE: Fuel stops around Durango

This pub won't help you in Durango, but is great on the interstates: http://www.thenextexit.com/

RE: Blowout Results

The problem with pull behinds and 5th wheels is lousy tires. Most OEM tires are STs made in China. On my 5th wheel, I had a tire come apart, so I changed all four to US made LTs...no problems. Most MH tires are not made in China. Re stability, my MH's GW is 49k, it's pretty stable.

RE: Blowout Results

I'd like to know the cause of the blow out. Based on the year of the coach, the tire should not have been old. What about tire pressure, inflation and speed of the coach? To me, that video by Michelin makes no sense. With the good power steering in today's vehicles, you can control the vehicle without contributing to a more serious accident by going faster. I wonder if the host has ever had a real blow out and not a staged blow out. We had a RF tire blow last May. I tapped off the cruise and coasted to the side of the interstate. We were cruising at 60 and the last thing I wanted was more speed.

RE: 2015 fleetwood discovery 40G

FW's tech phone service is second to none...as is factory service. As for comparison...check the prices, if they are about the same, they are comparable.

RE: Black Tank Fillin to Fast

We have friends with a mid 90s Serengeti. The bathroom sink is plumbed into the black tank. What about a washer...do you have one, and does it go in the black tank?

RE: Seeking Battery Knowledge

Good advice from MrWizard. You'll fine most RV owner's manuals are designed for many RVs, and are just about worthless.
