RE: Are large gas motor Rv's underpower?

No, My Chevy 8.1 Vortec engine (496 C.I.D.) can climb any mountain pass that I've been on 60 MPH with no problem. I drive 45 MPH now to save on fuel. Interesting Question, Happy Trails!

RE: Personalized plates

My wife and I support Washington State Parks so we have a special license plate honoring Washington State on our RV and Tow vehicle. The main feature on the license plate is a picture of Spokane Falls in all of it's wild glory!

RE: Oregon & Washington folks heading south in the winter

I've only had to wait one day (once) going over the Siskiyous on I-5 in all the years we go down to Lake Havasu City, AZ and back. Interstate-5 is a major commerce trucking route linking North & South the Western United States with Mexico and Canada, therefore I-5 gets high priority for it's roadwork to keep it free of ice and snow. I've seen it snow and get real icy on the coast route, when the temps really drop and a bad storm goes thru the Cali/Ore border areas. I always stick with the I-5 route, more business if you need services, more lane choices and wider road then the coast route.

RE: W22 or W24 chassis

Mick, IMHO, a Workhorse W-22 Chassis comes with coaches 36' in length or less and Workhorse W-24 Chassis comes with coaches 37' in length or more.

RE: Diesel --- front engine -vs- rear engine

A friend of mine owns a Winnebago Journey D.P. (rear engine) and he had to add insulation over the engine compartment because the engine noise was so loud he couldn't sleep back there when his wife was driving! I owned Harley Davidsons all my life and I'm grateful for Honda and the Goldwing because, Honda motorcycle technology has forced Harley to build better bikes IMHO!

RE: Introduction

Welcome to RV.Net and congrats on the new coach! 150,000 miles would be high miles to me, not 80,000 for a coach in the 90's!

RE: Tire pressures

IMHO, your going to have to experiment with tire pressures! My Michelin manual said 85 lbs. rear and 90 lbs. front. That did not work for me, rear tire squirm and the lower tire pressure that you use causes more tire heat and that's on Michelins website! I ended up going 100 psi all around and that is what worked for me after using different tire pressures!

RE: Buying a used winnebego what to expect

If your buying a Winnebago your buying a very good coach. And to answer your miles question you will wear out the inside of that coach before the engine goes, if it has been properly maintained over the years.

RE: Campground Question

You rented that space for two days and under any circumstances that space should not have been rented until the two days were up! It doesn't matter what the office thinks if your gone or not! You had a binding rental agreement for that space for two days. That RV Park clearly practices poor customer service and greed. I can't believe other posters saying it's O.K. because they gave you another spot, I guess contracts or agreements don't mean anything to them! I'm sorry to hear about how you were treated!

RE: First Timer Looking for Advice

Joe, welcome to RV.Net! I suggest that you make a budget of what you can comfortably afford to spend on a RV and stick to that budget. Next, I would look for a floor plan that suits your needs. Then engine and trans, and colors! Good Luck and happy camping.

RE: Need battery help

Hi all, COMPLETE NEWBY here. I bought a 1982 Itasca Sunflyer 27' from a person (did not tell me all the major problems) and they removed the positive/negative clamps for the second set of battery hookup cables. I have no way of knowing for sure which is which. One cable goes to a small box and the other disappears behind the metal wall. The left hand attachment is the motor battery positive and the right side is the unknown cable. Should the right side also be positive? I have a regular car battery and a deep cycle. I want to use the deep cycle for the house battery and think that is what the second set of cables are. http://i.imgur.com/Wos9bjkl.jpg http://i.imgur.com/FpZz89Ql.jpg ANY help would be greatly appreciated. Take this to a qualified chassis mechanic, what you have is a solenoid so the other side is not going to connect to the positive side of a battery it is going to connect to something else like the starter. You are asking for troubles if you try and figure it out yourself. Have someone who knows what they are doing hook up the batteries and then explain the setup to you so you will know for future reference. X-2, this is very good advice! Welcome to RV.Net

RE: Gas pusher

DW and I are looking for a "Gas pusher" MH. What I understand so far is they were discontinued in 2008 due EPA reg. Please post if anyone knows of one for sale any where. Thank You. The Gas Pusher was discontinued by Winnebago with the Chevy 8.1 Vortec because Chevy's 496 Cubic Inch engine couldn't pass newer EPA emissions standards. Everyone with a Chevy 8.1 is Grandfathered In even though the engine is now officially obselete. I don't know why Winnebago chose not to go with the Ford V-10 in there gas pusher series. I'll send you a PM if I see or hear of a GP in my area. Good Luck in your search!

RE: Insurance and Rv value

I was looking over some of my insurance policies today and while looking at policy for coach, mine is listed as Actual Cash Value. How is this value determined, I've looked at NADA values on coach and have also searched the web for current prices . Also are things like new tires,new roof,updates to coach added to price to determined the value. IMHO, if your coach qualifies for it, get a actual replacement value policy.
