RE: Haines

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

RE: Trucks or Buses Left Lane Only. Does that mean me?

IMHO you were O.K.

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!

RE: Tyre Sizes

9R22.5 is a common size, at least in North America for older diesel motorhomes, delivery trucks, etc. Might look at this Michelin RV Tire Guide: http://www.michelinrvtires.com/michelinrv_en_us/toolbox/reference-material.jsp Just click on RV tire guide. You can also go with a 255/80R22.5 Michelin (a little wider, but with 7.5" wheels no problems). Another alternative with 7.5" wheels is a 265/75R22.5 X-2, this is the website that I used to find a Michelin Dealer that participated in FMCA, Michelin Tire Fleet Program, Michelin Tires at a discount! I paid $378.00 per tire (22.5) last fall using this discount program.

RE: you gotta love it

They will have no problem selling off a couple of their campgrounds for top dollar. Then they can use that money to fund the left over parks. I know its not the way the members will like to see it happen but the way I see it 1/2 a pie is better than no pie at all. X-2, this is the smartest route for there customers!

RE: gas or diesel?

I own a gas coach. I can easily afford to buy a DP, but I don't drive enough miles to justify buying one. I'm a retired truckdriver and drove diesels all my life and I enjoy the engine torque (pulling power) and the air ride a diesel offers (both going down the highway & leveling). I'm currently not towing a vehicle so I get very good fuel milage with my coach and my maintenance is $65.00 plus tax, once a year. I have a very nice Captains Chair to sit in when driving and new shocks and tires so my ride is comfortable. Noise, I'm hard of hearing and I don't put my hearing aids in while driving and I get one quiet ride (only nice thing about being hearing impaired). Good Luck

RE: hankook tires

Drive tires should not be used on steer, but steer can be used in any position (which is what most motorhomes use.) The biggest difference is that drive tires are built for straight line traction at the torque axles. The tread patterns are lug/coined/sipped on drive tires, instead of ribbed like steer tires. The tread of that style works fine for the go tires but would not do well in a steering application. Very good advice about drive and steer tires!

RE: Which older model gas rig would you consider?

I would look at Winnebago Adventurer, Sightseer and Voyage. Winnebago 2005 Product Line I agree with this post!

RE: So I weighed my coach today....

Yes, run at the lowest on the chart if you are well below the weights for the specified load. I agree with Brett!

RE: Winnebago. Journey or Itasca higher end?

Both the Journey and the Itasca are very nice coaches made by Winnebago! I'm on my third Winnebago and yes the Itasca has a little more detail in there coaches!

RE: Can you jump the coach to chassi batteries to charge

X2 on the TRIK L START. I have one and it is great! I also have one works great!

RE: electrolysis ??

Back in the 70's Catapillar was selling these tiny colored beads (they came in a tube) at the Cat House and it was used to retard electrolysis. I also had a friend (in Forks, WA.) and Gene would put nothing in the radiator except pure rain water! He had barrels under every down spout around his house. None of his Cat Motors experienced electrolysis.

RE: stink bugs

A large pan, a half a gallon of water and some Dawn dish detergent. Then, shine a desk lamp on the pan of water. Place the pan of dish water with the light shining on it in a dark room for twelve hours at a time from 7:00 at night until 7:00 in the morning. I really like using Dawn and all the stuff it can do!
