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.

Double post.

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.

RE: Midlevel newer vs higher level older

Don't get hung up on chassis brands, both have good points and bad points. I've had both and both can do the job. Also, if you are looking at prices, comparing an Eagle to a Rev is apples to oranges.

RE: Entegra Quality

Entegras appear to be priced lower than similarly priced Winnebagos, Newmars, American Coaches, Tiffins, etc. There must be a reason. yup what I posted yesterday I guess there not as greedy Or they are cutting costs somehow....overhead, parts, components, labor, salaries, etc.

RE: Half-ton toad

This has been posted many times before, but here it is again...don't guess, do the numbers: Tow rating is the lower of... 1. Coach's hitch rating. 2. Coach tow rating. 3. Chassis tow rating (sometimes different than the coach's). 4. The difference in weight between the coach's GCWR and the coach's actual weight when ready to tow.

RE: 2016 Dutch star 4369 , 2016 entegra anthem 42rbq

Definitely the Dutch Star (Newmar). Nothing wrong with the Entegra but is not in the same league IMHO. I agree...never had either make.

RE: Oil change location question ?

I've used a Freightliner Oasis..$110/hour, high dollar. Look for a Mom and Pop who specializes in diesels. I found one, where I supply the oil (from Sams) they change and dispose of the oil and due a complete lube job for $65.

RE: Power Gear Hydraulic jacks won't retract

I have PG jacks operated by a Valid controller. I can push and hold the on/off button and it will reset the system. If you can, you might try that.

RE: Braking Conundrum

Theres really not that much difference. You make sure that you have the correct amount of air pressure (gauges) and you never, never pump the brakes as that will release air pressure every time you pump. All DPs have either an exhaust brake or an engine brake. Utilizing these, you very seldom ever need to use the service (air) brakes unless an emergency, need to stop quickly or come to a complete stop. It doesn't take much to get use to them, so don't worry about it. Ron Agree...try them, you'll like them.

RE: Coach with no slide outs

Any RV that is 20 years old will have problems.
