RE: covering a 40 ft motor home.

While it doesn't hurt to pour 10 inch thick concrete, it is an overkill. I only have a 35 foot DP, but I parked it on a 4 inch pad for years and never had any problems. The concrete was reinforced with fiberglass and not rebar and it help up just fine. X-2, 10 inch concrete is perfect if your parking a couple of military tanks on the pad.

RE: Roof A/c

I have a large basement heat pump in my RV and it stops heating at 33* then, I have to turn the furnace on if it's really cold or use a small portable heater.

RE: Split King Motorized Adjustable Bed

TarHeel 2, My wife gets acid reflux and she takes one teaspoon of organic Apple Cider Vinegar. And, it's gone really fast. Just wanted to throw that out there if you weren't aware of it! Good Luck with your bed.

RE: Outside tv

I have nothing against TV, (except Samsung there thieves and copiers) When, I'm outside my RV in a RV Park, I do not want to hear some one's TV playing loud.

RE: Newbie Adventures in a 1987 HONEY RV w/ a Chevy 454

66 vdub, Thanks for sharing! Divorces are very hard to recover from (been there, did that when, I left the courtroom all I had was my underwear on and pickup truck) glad to hear your alive and doing well! I've been through that meat grinder more than once. Hopefully the laws change enough to give a guy a fighting chance. Some equality they serve up. :MShe wanted the pick up truck! I told the judge no pick up truck, no workie! Amen on laws changing!

Don't waste your money on Premium gasoline

AAA, just finished a survey on gasoline the public uses. The result was 270 million drivers needlessly use premium fuel! What vehicles need to use premium? Those that have engines with turbo chargers or super chargers need the higher octane according to AAA study. Do you need to use premium fuel in your RV or toad? According to AAA in there study you should open your owners manuel, the most informative and most unread piece of documentation relevant to your vehicle. I got this info from today's USA Today Newspaper. Just passing the message on to those on RV.Net, who don't read the newspaper.

RE: Corner weights in Forest City

We are going to be in Forest City for some repair work. I understand that a grain elevator there that will do corner weights on the motorhome. Where is the elevator? Do you need to make an appointment or just show up? Approximate cost? ThanksSince no one replied, I would look for a grain silo in the area! Those grain trucks have to weigh before going out on the road so there is weigh scales near. Good Luck in weighing! I've been RVing since 1976 and never weighed all four corners in any of the coaches that I owned.

RE: Best Way To Protect Toad

I just use the stock mud flaps that came on my Winnebago. I've never had any problems with dings out of the ordinary!

RE: Tires

I also used FMCA for Michelin. $2600 for my tires.X-3, my local tire shop wanted $550.00 per Michelin Tire plus shipping for each tire. And, XRV Michelin Tires are made of soft rubber (only other soft rubber tire is GY 670) all other tires are hard rubber.

RE: Heat pump on 13.5 AC

12 to 15 amps. Doug Doug is correct my Winnebago runs on 15 amps. When I hook up to 30 amps my management control only allows one compressor head to run on my heat pump in my Winnebago which is enough to cool or warm things up or down unless I'm in the S.W. cooling can be a problem.

RE: Opinions on 1997 Winnebago Vectra

Joe, in 1997 the Vectra was Winnebagos top of the line Diesel Pusher. You shouldn't have any problems with the motor and Allison trans. In fact at 80,000 miles the inside of the engine if well maintained should be near new, most diesel engines get broke in around 20,000 miles. What damages motorhomes more than anything else is water damage. Beware of water leaks and the moisture that accompanies them. Good Luck with your new coach.

RE: Water Works Question

Thanks, GP Wayne, I'll shut off the pump! I do use RV designed hoses I have a 10' hose and a 25' hose but, I was over 50' from faucet so I used our garden hose. The DW and I do not use the water in our Freshwater Tank for drinking or cooking.

RE: new tires?

I have a 2004 Southwind with 19.5 Michelin tires. I think they are about 6 years old. I can see small cracks in the sidewall of the front tire. I am wondering if these small cracks are considered dangerous and in need of replacement. I also wonder if they are weather related. Any info will be helpful. Thanks in advance. William Michelin claim 10 year tire life on a RV.Go see a tire expert and have them judge the weather cracks, Michelin are famous for them Not quite true. Go to: http://www.michelinrvtires.com/reference-materials/tire-guide-warranties-and-bulletins/ Click on "RV Tire Guide". On page 3: Tires that have been in use for 5 years or more should continue to be inspected by a specialist at least annually. And further down the same page: While most tires will need replacement before they achieve 10 years, it is recommended that any tires in service 10 years or more from the date of manufacture, including spare tires, be replaced with new tires as a simple precaution even if such tires appear serviceable and even if they have not reached the legal wear limit. X-2, I read the same thing.

RE: New RV and Tire Pressure

On my coach the tire manufactures manual and Winnebagos manual said to run my Michelin Tires at 75 psi rear and 90 psi front. This did not work for me. I was getting rear tire squirm at 75 psi in the rear tires. What I did was experiment with air pressure in the tires every time I went RVing. I settled on 100 lbs. psi all around! It must of worked because I got 10 years out of that set of tires and two years on my new set of tires at the fore mentioned lbs. psi. And your absolutely right in saying low tire pressure is dangerous. The lower the tire pressure the more heat build up you will have inside your tires.

RE: Running roof air

I don't have roof air (I have basement air) but I've owned RV's in the past with roof air and, I have run the genset before while driving to power the roof air. My dash air doesn't cool enough in very hot weather, especially in the Southwest.
