RE: Dual Pane Windows 2007/08 Fleetwood & Winnebago

I have dual pane windows in my 2004 Adventurer they came as standard equipment when I bought the coach new! The Adventurer is Winnebagos top of the line gas coach and there is no skimping of equipment on this model. The Adventurer is also a very well insulated coach and performs very well in the cold! The coldest weather my coach has been in was 9* and it handled it with no problems. Good Luck in your search!

RE: Old Toad/New Experience

Towing all 4 down is the way I chose to tow! It really works for me and i've been RVing since 1976. Good Luck to you if you choose to go the other way.

RE: Windshield

When I bought my Fleetwood new back in the 90's the windshield leaked during the first rainstorm . The windshield wasn't sealed correctly at the factory. Also during hot dry weather after time the sun will shrink your windshield seals and they will shrink and leak.

RE: looking for a vehicle to tow.

Sam, I'm towing a 2014 Honda CRV 4X4 all four wheels down. 2014 is the last year Honda made transmissions to be towed with all 4 wheels down. Honda changed transmissions in the 2015. I like the CRV because it's light, good on fuel, and hands down the best steering vehicle I owned in a long time. In the past I've towed Saturns and Toyotas all four wheels down. Hope you find a vehicle that suits your needs.

RE: Damon versus Winnebago

Tom, Winnebago just about makes all there parts! I know that they don't make glass or tires, but do make just about everything else. The only time that I've had trouble getting parts is around Christmas time when Winnebago shuts there factory down for two weeks. I'm not going to tell you to buy a Winnebago because I own one! I feel that is a disservice! But, I will tell you that I'm into the 12th year (bought it new) of the 3rd Winnebago that I have owned. Good Luck on your search.

RE: 275/80r 22.5 tires

First of all if you want to run those slightly used 7 year old tires I would take them to a tire shop and have them broke down (off the rim) and inspected inside and out that way you know what you have. I'm on my second set of XRV's having run my first set for 10 years. In the 10th year of the mentioned set I got minor UV cracks on the sidewall. This was my fault due to I didn't cover my tires from the Arizona sun. You can go to Michelins Quality Care Website and no where on that website does it say you can run on cracked tires. But, it does say the cracks can be run on, if there within a certain depth and they are Inspected by a tire expert (Not a RV.Net tire expert). I have never had a Michelin Tire blow out on me in my RV or my Semi truck in over 44 years! Is that coincidence I don't think so! My life depended on a lot of different Michelin front end steer tires in the millions of miles that I drove OTR (Over the Road). The Michelin XRV is a true soft rubber RV tire designed for RV applications only (RV's sit a lot without moving this is just one of the many applications) XRV are not hard rubber truck tires that the Michelin bashers always fail to mention! I like Pastor Charlie, purchased my tires from the FMCA/Michelin Fleet Tire Program at a discount for $378.00 per tire my local Michelin Dealer wanted $505.00 per tire plus freight! Do your homework when buying tires! Good Luck

RE: Do you flash people?

A question. A truck driver with experience...doesn't he KNOW by looking at the mirrors when to go back over? :h It can get difficult to judge distance when your pulling doubles or triples especially in the Pacific Northwest in the gloomy weather rain, fog and darkness.

RE: Leaving seat while driving

The gets up to make a snack or get me a drink, use the restroom, or attend to the dogs! When not doing that were buckled up. A coach that has a engine up front (diesel or gas) would have more protection in a accident IMHO. When I bought my coach new the shop foreman at the dealership that I was at told me not to buy a Alfa See Ya (I was looking at one) and he showed me why. Not structural sound up front.

RE: Do you flash people?

Yes, I do it as a courtesy to Truckers and Leo's! I'm a retired OTR Truckdriver! A long time ago when I took a CDL test at the DOL that light flashing was a question on the test that I took. I was amazed to find out it is against the law. How do I know this? I answered the question incorrectly and said it was O.K. to flash headlights. The DOL Officer told me if you flash a truck to pull in front of you and a accident occurs from that result, you are responsible for that accident by signaling to the truck that it is O.K. to pull in. I have never in my 44-1/4 years driving OTR heard of anyone being cited for flashing there head lights. Good Question

RE: States with no tax on private party purchase?

Washington State, but the tax the heck out of you at registration time (tabs)! We have to chip in and help pay for light rail and possibly coming next is State Parks? Em, no You a "use tax" that is the local commercial sales tax at the time you register the vehicle Plus the other taxes, like light rail, which you wouldn't pay Kitsap is not included in the regional light rail tax I can show you the receipt from my registration and yes I'm aware that Kitsap County does not pay for the light regional rail tax system! This has nothing to do with the regional Light Rail! This was another back room deal separate from regional rail. It's called a TPA look it up! I had to pay $75.00 extra on my tabs and I believe it runs for 5 years . The TPA's in Washington State do not require a majority vote from the legislature, it's a yea or nay from the transportation committee! I'm surprised your not paying it or aware of it! I looked it up to help you review it : www.wsdot.gov/Projects/Funding/2005 TPA stands for Transportation Partnership Program Annual Fee. It started in 2005 and runs until 2021. Fee of $75.00 per Motorhome to bring in 130 million. It's so nice being a unwilling partner!

RE: Best ways to keep RV cool inside in desert climate

Reflective material in windows (inside coach) when sitting (camping), a windshield shade cover (outside) to protect your windshield seals and windshield wipers. Awnings out and air conditioning on by 8 AM. All my tires covered to prevent UV damage. Fantastic fan on to get warm air out before you turn on your air. When walking my dogs outside you can't walk them on pavement during high heat times. And I keep a coyote shaker on my person when walking my pets in the desert.

RE: Purchasing an RV in Coos Bay, OR - Need an inspection

Jordan, just wanted you to know that your buying a Super fine coach! There billed as the finest steering coaches in the World. I've been to the factory in Yakima, Washington State where Western RV was manufacturing them. And I've also been to a few Western RV Rallies. There very nice luxury coaches. Good Luck with your new ride!
