RE: What manufacturer do I purchase?

Pick the coach with the floor plan that fits your needs. I went with Winnebago! I'm on my 3rd coach since 1976. Winnebago has a history of building great coaches, they have been building RV's longer than any other manufactor, make almost all of there own parts and there financially sound. I'm not telling you to buy a Winnebago, just giving you more info to make a sound choice. Good Luck in whatever you buy!

RE: Staying in parking lots??

We are new to RV'ing and will be headed to CT at the end of May. While traveling to your destination, how common is it to pull over in a Walmart parking lot or truck stop to sleep instead of paying to stay at a campground? Any advice is greatly appreciated! We stay in them very rarely! We prefer a safer place (RV Park) with shore power, water and sewer.

RE: Spare tire class A motorhome

Winnebago told me they don't provide spare tires because of the large amount of back injuries caused by the handling those heavy tires.

RE: Toad 2015 Honda Fit

Actually, that information has not been released (I have been working with the staff guy at FMCA to get the final Honda ruling). With tomorrow being the release date for introducing the vehicle, I suspect a copy of the owners manual will be available for viewing VERY shortly. If you see one, would love to have a copy of that page (at least the official owners manual is what I would view as the proper source-- not some salesman's answer). It is possible that the manual transmission may be towable, while the CVT may not be-- just my guess. But, the Honda legal department may have other ideas. Thanks Brett, I'll be watching when Honda releases that info. May have to buy a 2014?

RE: RV Insurance Coverage in Canada ?

RE: Water in basement

Some freshwater tanks have an overflow valve (pressure release) up on top of the tanks if the tank is in danger of overfilling. My Winnebago has a valve like this but the water is designed to leak out of the basement. If you have a indoor/outdoor carpet in your basement flooring just wash them as usual. If you have a wet vac use that also. To get wet and smell out leave all compartment doors open and use a fan!

Toad 2015 Honda Fit

Our next Tow Vehicle is going to be a Honda Fit! The DW was reading an article to me off the internet that was saying the 2015 Honda Fit cannot be towed all 4 down? Has anyone on RV.Net heard of this or anything different?

RE: Chowchilla CA Truck Weigh Station??

Super Cub, your getting the right info so far! But I'll take this a little further,sometimes they are also used for tracking if a vehicle trips a transponder at one weigh station and trips the transponder at a second weigh station there is a speed formula they use to see if you were speeding. If the weigh station is open your called in, if not you receive your citation in the mail. Also in Washington State there is two metal arms one is for the transponder and the other is a camera. Also one time I was returning to Seattle, WA. from Bellingham, WA. in my semi and I took a back road off I-5 to Algier, WA. (there was this store that sells great fried chicken) after stopping for my snack I continued down this road for about 10 miles and I had the Washington State Patrol waiting for me. I tripped some type of alarm that they had set up at 11' in height (laser beam) and it turned on a camera at the weigh station on I-5 and the WSP assumed that I was running the I-5 scales! You should have seen there faces when they had me open the back door of the trailer and nothing was in the there! But they did go thru all my papers, health card etc. trying to find something wrong! Big Brother is watching!

RE: Rodent in the RV.... ACK!!!

I had a squirell get into my genset many years ago and chew up the wiring harness. I don't like using bait traps because it attracts rodents to your coach. But I do use them once I know there inside. Now I use electronic sound devices (at least 2 of them) and, I took one day off bought a lot of course steel wool pulled out every drawer in the coach and anywhere else where I could get to a runway or cubby hole and stuffed it with very coarse steel wool! I haven't had a problem since. Good Luck to you and sorry to hear about your problem!

RE: Seattle WA

KOA in Kent is tight but nice, location is perfect - they do have weekly rate - call them not on their web site - we have stayed there 2 1/2 months on and off over a 5 month period very recently X-2, Just off I-5, not far from Rapid Transit Station that takes you to Downtown (Plenty of parking at the RTS). A bus stops at the KOA which will take you to the RTS if you don't want to drive. Karen Rosier is the KOA Kent Mgr.

RE: Haines

I agree on using the Alaska Marine Hwy. especially the M.V. Columbia or M.V. Matanuska!

RE: Homemade Jack Stands

A railroad tie cut in half, then use your chainsaw to cut a wedge to drive up on! It will easily hold the weight of a motorhome front end.

RE: Re-Winterize?

Heating your coach like you explained will work just fine! I got back from AZ. recently and I forgot to turn my heaters one night and it got down to 25* and everything was O.K. The weatherman said it was going to be in the mid 30's.

RE: Shurflo Water Pump

My water pump went bad, it was a Shurflo about 15 years old. I must say that I had to replace, but the service at Shurflo was excellent, tech support from Andrew was really great, and I had to let everyone know that they stand behind their product. Arnold Good Report about Shurflo!
