RE: Tire question

FMCA has a Michelin Tire Discount Program where you can buy Michelin Tires much cheaper.

RE: Newbee question for long timeRVer's

I traded my old RV in on a new one for more space. I upgraded from a 31' to a 36' to better our living quarters. I've been RVing since 1976.

RE: Core Value of Old Tires

Core value also depends on the age and condition of the tire. When I bought my new tires even though they had plenty of good tread the dealer junked them!

RE: Working in winter location

I keep everything on during the winter when I'm not down in AZ. My coach has basement heat and I don't worry much unless it gets below 25* then i winterize the coach.

RE: Shocks

I changed my shocks 2 years ago from Monroe to Bilsteins and they have provided me with a satisfactory ride.

RE: fuel cards at trucker fueling stations

BTW, I also have a Pacific Pride fleet card that's good nationwide. Only problem is their prices are all over the board and you must call if you're interested in what the price is at a particular facility. I have one for gas and one for diesel, only cuz it's easier to pay em with my bookkeeping...:W......Dennis X-2, I also have a Pacific Pride card I like the ease of fueling wherever I go, but the DW doesn't like how flexible fuel prices are as Dennis mentioned.

RE: Being pulled over by LEO

Leo should approach from curb side of RV for safety reasons and he will pick door or window he feels more comfortable with. You should have your license, vehicle registration, insurance card ready. I don't think this is right. Protocol is to sit with your hands on the wheel and don't grab anything until told to do so. Be visible and don't start rummaging for anything. The officer has no idea what you are digging for and can assume the worst. If he asks you for your info, then you get it. I've always done this my whole life and never had a complaint from any officer. If I got shot it wouldn't be the first time for me.

RE: OK to mix tire brands? (Front/Steer tires)

I retired from a trucking company in 2010 after 44-1/4 years OTR and our trucking company did this when one of our trucks had a flat tire that couldn't be fixed immediately. The one thing our tire guy focused on was getting the right width of tire and the right tread height of the tire to insure the best steering / handling possible. So to answer your question Yes! But it was done at our company for no more than 3 days (weekend) because our tire guy liked us to run matched sets of tires when over the road for maximum road handling. Good Luck in whatever you decide to do. I'm not a tire expert, but have been associated with tires for 44-1/4 years. Ask your local tire guy for his advice.

RE: Mount Rushmore National Park

Yes, and when you leave Rushmore go to the Crazyhorse Mounument up the road about 20 minutes.

RE: waxing Motorhome

Twice a year my Grandson does it for me! I don't use wax! I use Aerospace #303 spray on wipe off! Aerospace #303 was invented by a Boeing Aircraft engineer and Boeing uses it to shine up there aircraft.

RE: Do you let any maintenance items go longer than recommended?

I really try to do my maintenance on schedule but sometimes go over when I'm on the road. I do change oil when I know my coach is going to sit for awhile. My Workhorse manual says I should change oil and filter once a year / or every 7,500 miles whatever comes first. I'm a retired truckdriver and our shop changed oil in the diesel engines (which ran hard everyday) once every 20 thousand miles and the oil filters every 10 thousand miles. The trucks that had CAT diesel engines our shop ran those engines over full by one gallon by recommendation from NC Machinery.

RE: Bilstein shocks

My coach came stock with Monroe's! I put a set of Bilsteins on and it was a great improvement over the Monroe's! The only problem that I had was my coach has a 2003 Chassis, with a 2004 living box therefore it was sold new as a 2004. Winnebago changes there chassis every 4 years. With me the chassis change was 2004 therefore, I had to buy Bilstein shocks for a 2003 chassis to make them fit. Check your VIN to make sure you have the right chassis for the correct shock. Good Luck to you.

RE: What mountain grade .....

In Washington State, IMHO it would be Chinook Pass on the Mt. Rainier side of the pass.

RE: RV and trailer lenght.

Your OK if you travel to Washington State, but you will have to stop at Port of Entry and get a over length permit. This permit will tell you where and what times you can travel. You will also need several over length placards.

RE: Roof seam repair

I had trouble in the same spot last year with my Winnebago. Mine did not separate and I used Dicor self leveling caulk.

RE: Winnebago Roof Seam Caulk

I use Dicor self leveling caulk on my Adventurer. Bought my coach new in 2004 and had to caulk it for the first time last year around the roof dish and above the passenger window. I always power wash my coach on a very low setting and keep the stream of water off the seams and decals. Sounds like you bought a very nice coach.

RE: Comparing Class A Cost To Travel Trailers

Steve this was a push for us! I don't own a P.U. my wife wanted a luxury TT (5ver) the one she liked was $100,000.00 and to buy a new diesel P.U. was $75,000.00. We ended up keeping our Winnebago Motorhome.
