RE: Class A or C ?

I've owned both and will choose Class A hands down! But a lot of people don't like sitting over the steer tires and prefer to drive a Class C. I mentioned this because my wife is one of those people!

RE: Has anyone ever heard of a Vixen RV

I don't think anyone would want to do this (fun fact) Vixen and Chinook were two RV's billed to go over 100 MPH. Chinook RV (from Yakima WA.) holds the RV land speed record at Bonneville Salt Flats in UT driving over 100 MPH.

RE: Full Time

Winnebago they have 2 different lines of high end DP coaches to choose from. Winnebago has built RV's before all the others RV manufactures were in business, and they will be in business when most of the others are gone. Outside of rubber and glass they make everything for there coaches in there factory. And one last thing during this last economic trouble 2007 and on they expanded and started making travel trailers when most of the other manufactures mentioned in the post went broke. I recommend not getting a warranty I've been RVing since 1976 and have never bought one. I'm a decade in on my third Winnebago and never regretted buying one of them. JMHO

RE: Am I out of my depth?

I think it's a great deal! You can fix it up as needed and your not making big monthly payments for 20 years.

RE: do gassers offer anything like the DP engine brake

Gassers have a transmission brake as a lot posters mentioned! If your not aware DP's have a engine brake this is when a Jacob Head (hence the term Jake Brake) turns the engine into a compressor by closing all the valves in the engine, therefore creating back pressure! Good Question

RE: slide topper banging in high wind

Bob in the past I've used foam mattress pad and cut it to fit and I've also use a inflatable air mattress just stuff it under the slide topper and leave a small note on the slide out switch panel to remove before extending.

RE: Wholesale Warranty extended service agreement

I would put the money in the bank and pay for your own repairs. X-2, I've been RVing since 1976 and never have bought one!

RE: Rust

The only rust I get on my coach is when any States your traveling in there DOT puts down that chemical to prevent ice. Before I retired OTR you should of seen my converter dolly (hooks up dual trailers) paint surface corroded off, and it ate thru the wiring!

RE: Put MH on boards or not for winter

Great question Scott! I'm not a tire expert and I have Michelin tires on my RV. Michelin on there website has a tire quality care section. And in that section it says to have wood or rubber or plastic between your tire and the surface. It also says when your storing your RV indoors to use cardboard between the tire and the surface. The website also says to make sure whatever your putting on the ground make sure that the complete tire surface must be covered (if you use for example a piece of 2x4 it will only be covering 4" of the tires 6" to 8" surface and inner sidewall damage could occur according to Michelin. I use a 2 foot long piece of Doug Fir 2x10 under each tire, whenever my coach is parked regardless if it's sitting at home on gravel or in Arizona sitting on concrete, or any other surface when RVing. It's my belief this helps me to get longer tire life.

RE: Windshield water leak just started - Itasca 30B

I have a 04 Winnebago with the same problem this past summer! The heat of the Southwest finally shrunk my windshield seals which caused a leak. I had Novus take the old seals off and inspect my entire windshield assembly! Novus found that I had a lower windshield frame rusting out. Novus didn't want to do anything with both split windshields since they are glued in from the factory. Trying to move a glued in windshield according to Novus would most likely (90% of the time) cause the windshield to break. The rusty bracket was still holding so I took a chance and had Novus reseal the windshield put in new moldings and of course they caulked everything. It worked they fixed the leak and just charged $100.00 Next time my windshield leaks,or is broken or cracked I'm going to have new windshield frame installed along with new windshields. In the mean time I bought a dehumidifier that I place between the split windshields when I'm not driving and that little machine is the best investment I have bought for my coach. I empty it once a week 3 to 4 inches of water that is not going down into my windshield assembly. When I'm in Arizona during the winter I do not run the dehumidifier due to the humidity in Arizona is 8%. Anywhere else I go when RVing that little machine is on 24/7.

RE: Fresh water leaks into tank

I would check the water selector switch to see if it's completely on City water. Also one time my selector switch came loose and fell to the ground. My wife seen it on the ground and without mentioning it to me see put it back on in the reverse position! And this was causing me the same situation you are describing.

RE: Counterfeit Tires

I hope the counterfeit tire makers get sued! Like Samsung got sued for stealing all of Apples technology and made all those cheaper tablets and phones! That's a two way street. Technology companies are always stealing from each other. From what I've read, Apple has had to remove Samsung's technology as much as Samsung has had to remove Apple's. You could be right? I don't have the facts but Apple is hands down the leader in computers, tablets and phones. But I was at a conference and Steve Jobs was talking and he quipped and laughed about the one thing that he stoled from Microsoft after they stoled so much stuff from him. I'm so glad Samsung got nailed!

RE: cold weather travel

My tow car lost tire pressure at Lake Havasu City, AZ. after a cold spell last year. The tire light came on the dashboard warning me. I went to Lakeside Tire in LHC and the manager told me it's quite common for tires to lose air after a cold spell. He also told me that I was the 12th vehicle to come in that day with low tire pressure. I've never had that happen to me before during cold spells in the Pacific Northwest?

RE: Condensation Problem on front window.

We run an electric water collecting dehumidifier in the HTT during winter outings. Leaving windows cracked or vents seemed silly. Now we dial in the humidity we want. We have been known to put the unit in the shower and dry cloths by hangin them in the bathroom. I think these should be standard equipment in all RV's.We have collected three gallons of water from the air in less than 24 hours X-2 on being standard equipment in a RV!

RE: Most secure motorhome?

The most secure motorhome is the one that is double locked! The door lock is locked and the deadbolt lock is locked locked! Any RV that I've owned since 1976 had both locks on them. Good safety question IMHO.

RE: Chains for driving on snow and ice

I'm a retired truckdriver and the dual chains that are mentioned in this post are called 3 railers! I've driven my motorhome in the snow just fine without chains (one time April 1999, I went from the Grand Canyon to Flagstaff, AZ. 1-1/2 feet of snow in the drift areas and I never spun a wheel) and I had chains on board but did not need them. I recommend just carrying a set of singles and 2 short pieces of 2"X10" wood that way if you have to chain up put both pieces of wood under each inside dual and drive up onto the 2x10's. Your outside duals will be off the ground and set up easily to install the chains. And you will be legal if you go over any mountain passes which require chains Nov. thru Apr. RV's drive well in snow (not ice) because there so heavy. If it's super icy, I run two singles on the outside rear and a single chain on my left steer tire. I do carry chains today but I try not to chain up just sit and wait. Before I retired I chained up almost every night during the winter driving a set of doubles over the Cascade Mtns.
