RE: Question on length

Ok, another question I have... Another MH Im looking at has the option of either a Ford 18.0 or a Workhorse 18.0....whats the difference? If your meaning engines the V-10 Triton is of course 10 cylinders and the Chevy Big Block, 8.1 Vortec engine is a 496 CI, V-8 on a Workhorse Chassis. Chevy produced the 8.1 from 2001 until 2009. The horsepower ratings differ due to special factory ordering from the standard 340 HP to 550 HP. Torque was 455 ft. lbs. on the 340 HP and 690 ft.lbs. on the 550 HP. Most of the 550 HP engines were special ordered for PU's.

RE: Question on length

anyone hear any of these stories?? I owned a 99 Fleetwood with a V-10. I had good Luck with that engine. I've seen a lot of posts on RV.Net in the past about 99 V-10 Tritons with spark plug issues.

RE: Repair Shop Wait Times. What was the longest wait?

In 2010 it took our coach 6 weeks to be fully repaired from an accident! 3 weeks of that was on Winnebago because, 3T's in Lake Havasu City, AZ. could not get the needed parts due to a Christmas and New Years Holiday factory shutdown by Winnebago.

RE: Toll booth and Axis

Just go thru without paying....you'll get your TICKET in the mail....:W...Dennis X-2, Washington State has some tolls set up this way (Tacoma Narrows Bridge for one)! You just drive thru if you don't have a Good to Go Sticker (Pass) on your windshield. The Washington State Patrol sends you a bill in the mail that charges you $1.00 more than if you were waiting in line! On holidays when the toll booths are all jammed up a lot of people just drive thru. WSDOT has cameras set up that takes a picture of your license plate. Washington State Patrol Cadets look up your license plate on the computers to get a home address to send you the bill.

RE: Question for current or retired truckers

Thanks, I retired in 2010 with 44-1/4 years OTR! I drove sets of doubles 95% of my career, and I worked Graveyard 95% of my career. I've logged just a little over 4 million miles and never had a charged accident in my career. It was rare for me to see a RV at that time of night. The few I did see for some reason were driving under the speed limit? When I found a safe place to pass they would speed up and not let me pass. So I would fall back still driving under the speed limit? I couldn't speed up fast enough to pass due to my speed was computer programed at 65 MPH max. I could press down on the throttle all the way to the floor and 65 was it. Take Care, Rooster

RE: Windshield

Nick, whenever I get a rock chip or ding in my windshield I call Novus and they come out to my house and repair it for free. My insurance company pays for it. I have Geico Insurance and, I have insurance to fix or replace my windshield when and if needed.

RE: Limitations to gas Class A

I've been to every place that you mentioned in a gas RV (36' Winnebago Adventurer) and I've towed a car behind our RV when going to these places. My engine is a Chevy Big Block 496 CI, 8.1 Vortec and if I choose too I can go up any mountain pass 55 MPH plus towing my car. There are also gas engine kits ( Gale Banks) that you can have installed to give you extra horsepower if desired at a cost around $2,000.00. Ford also makes a gas V-10 Triton that is just as good as a Chevy (I know this because I've owned both) I don't know where you got your information from on gas coaches, but IMHO I feel that you have been misinformed!

RE: Tire Inflation Question

I have the same tire and wheel size as you on my chassis when it was new in 03. My manual said to inflate the tires to 85 psi rear and 90 psi front. These tire pressures did not work for me due to rear tire squirm. I was also worried about heat build up inside the tire at 85 psi. I experimented with different pressures every time that I went out on a RV trip. I ended up using 100 psi all around. I get a slightly rougher ride at 100 psi (compared to 85 psi) but, 100 psi eliminated the rear tire squirm, eliminated the heat build up inside the tire casing at and, at 100 psi my tires get exceptional road wear (I ended up getting 10 years out of those tires @ 100 psi), I'm now into the 2nd year, on my second set of XRV's at 100 psi. Good Luck in whatever works for you!

RE: Sudden drop on MPG causes?

I had this happen one time when I was at Lake Havasu City, AZ. I took my coach to Joe's the Workhorse Dealer in LHC and they did a diagnostic test and it was electronic throttle control switch. It was a $45.00 fix for parts and labor.

RE: Annual Maintenance: Gasser vs Diesel Pusher

My gasser the routine maintenance is once a year or 7,500 miles for a synthetic oil change. I go to a small local shop he greases my coach, changes oil & filter and tops off all fluids. My last maintenance cost was $50.00 plus tax. He said he gave me a break for being a good customer! He usually charges me $65.00 plus tax.

RE: Insurance Recommendations

We had Geico for the last 10 years. A runaway truck hit our RV several years ago and they completely took care of us (the agent checked in with us everyday until the claim was fixed we were on the road at that time). Great service and they never raised our rates! Good Luck in whoever you choose.

RE: leveler down lite came on

I had this happen to me twice in my Winnebago (a long time ago) I was driving highway speeds and the jacks down light came on. I pulled over and checked and all my levelers were in the up position. The only common thing both times is the outside heat was between 105* to 110* both times and it never happened again.
