RE: Rock, Tire, Hole.....

Here in the NW if I stopped to examine every rock in a tread I'd never move. Gravel roads.

RE: Full Timing without your partner

Jim, As I said, I do not understand many ways of the younger folks - and if this arrangement is good for you two - GREAT!! But 238 minus 4 means you have agreed (I assume from your post you two have agreed) to 238 days and nights away from each other. As a 'military brat', I do understand how couples endure long times apart - I just do not understand it being a personal choice to do so. Nuf said - JMHO Different Strokes for Different Folks!! Last I knew, military service was a personal choice. At least since 1973.

RE: a/c delay when hooking up

Normal in most cases. There is a time delay to prevent an immediate restart if there's a power interruption. If the unit were running and stopped, it needs several minutes for the high pressure to bleed down before the compressor can start.

RE: traveling coast to coast class A with motorcycle. ?

MH plus bike is the best of both worlds. Yesterday it rained all day so we stayed in or drove the toad. Today is blue skies, time to ride!

RE: 1986 Onan BFA 4 - Suddenly running rough

Just relating a similar experience with one of my Hondas; seafoam and other treatments did nothing, even applied for long periods and high concentrations. Took the carb apart and cleaned the jets, all was well again. YMMV, but if the treatments don't get it done, you got nothing to lose by disassembly and cleaning the carb before buying one.

RE: 500 miles under 50 mph

Just stay off interstate, it's not hard to do. Or take advice from random strangers that contradicts your manual. Your money, your choice.

RE: How important is the exhaust brake?

EB is just a convenience, I have run a number of rigs through the Rockies both with and without. Nice to have. Not necessary. Same for the age old gas v diesel war. Gas MH go everywhere.

RE: Large solar panels

2 x 315w and I would do the same again.

RE: 1986 Onan BFA 4 - Suddenly running rough

You put that 50w in there, didn't you? :B Sounds like fuel to me. Float level, or partially plugged jet.

RE: Taylor Highway

Two days ago the road was in great shape.

RE: A good friend

A newer gas truck of any brand would be a better choice if that's his budget.

RE: Boondocking at 10k feet: will fridge/water heater work?

Never had any issues with our propane appliances at 10k plus. I have had the cobweb thing, though!

RE: Let's talk about Lifeline Batteries

I have them. Would do it again again. Life's too short to water batteries and clean corrosion.

RE: Onan BFA Oil - Why not 20W-50?

Mex, you using any bypass filtration? On our fleet we found it to be an economic win.

RE: Dinghy brakes or not?

How about some of you jailhouse lawyers present your law degree? This cyclical argument never ends. More brakes stop better than less brakes. Saving money is the argument against it, it's ok to call it what it is, economics are a fact of life. OP you by now have your answer, you have plenty of company. But if things go wrong, don't expect them to be beside you in the courtroom. As for me, I expect driving what I do I would be a nice target for ambulance chasers, so I'm not going to do things to make it easier for them if it ever comes to that.

RE: traveling coast to coast class A with motorcycle. ?

There are horse's asses in every online forum. Ignore them. I'm in AK with my bike. I transport the bike in my pickup, towed behind the motor home.

RE: Mail when full timing

One factor not yet mentioned, is having a mail store and forward service that provides you with instant ability to view the mail they receive over the internet. You can then chose what they keep, what they destroy, and what they should forward immediately to you. Also having the ability to request they open and scan the contents of mail is a plus. I find such a service as St. Brendan's Isle mail forwarding service in Florida to be extremely useful. +1 SBI does a great job, helps you set up FL domicile if you wish.

RE: Grand Cherokee Owners - Help & Advice Please

Or tow a pickup with ATV in the bed. Or small sxs.

RE: Grand Cherokee Owners - Help & Advice Please

We had two Grands. Brakes, oil leak from axles, electric window motors, airbag controller come to mind. Probably forgetting a few things. Nice to drive and we enjoyed them, but they did receive more maintenance than all the other vehicles we've owned. Replaced the last one with a Nissan, 6 years of ownership and no parts replaced except the battery, fluid and filter changes.

RE: F150 vs 250

What percentage of time do you tow. 250 will tow better. And suck fuel.
