RE: Benefits of 22" inch wheels on a gasser?

Reasons for 22.5 in rims and tires is weight capacity, and tire longevity, and ride quality. Don't plan on changing one yourself unless you are Charles Atlas. yes I've sen a few but they weren't happy they had to do it for a good while.x-2

RE: What do I flat tow?

I tow a Honda CRV all four down if you like Honda's and the CRV model you can tow any CRV from 2014 back to the 90's. All CRV 2015 on can not be towed all four down. Good Luck in whatever you choose to tow.

RE: GM 8.1 Workhorse O2 Sensors

This happened to me twice same engine once it was the Ecm which you can disconnect and reconnect and sometimes it will work. If not have to get new Ecm sensor the second time it happened to me was due to old gas in the fuel system check engine light came on. I stopped the RV read manual which said it was emissions that I still could drive unless check engine light started blinking if that happened I was to stop and shut off motor. I drove to nearest gas station refilled with new gas and a couple of bottles of Seafoam and that cured the problem for me. Good Luck

RE: 2005 Holiday Connecting Rod Failure

Deb, I'm also sorry to hear about what happened to you! I'm in hopes that Cummins will step up to the plate and take care of you. It's all about customer service! Keep us posted to what happens!

RE: No spare tire holder on our 2011 Coachmen Mirada 29ds. What?

My RV is a 2004 Winnebago which I bought new in 2004 and it did not come with a spare tire! I asked why and Winnebago said there was too many back injuries to RVers handling those heavy tires and rims! This is a very good point but also a good excuse for Winnebago too save money on every coach going out the door since 2004 without a extra tire in the coach! They saved millions of dollars by this move!

RE: Tire pressures and axle weight

I also own a Winnebago and tire charts giving to me were bogus! Both manuals Michelins and Winnebagos both said to run my tire pressure at 85 lbs. rear and 90 lbs. front. This didn't work for me due to I was experiencing tire squirm on the rear axle. What I did is take notes on the handling of my coach every time that I went out camping using different tire pressures. I settled on 100 lbs. all around! These tire pressures worked so well for me that I was able to get 10 years out of that set of tires. I'm now in my 3rd year of my second set tires. You have to experiment to see where you get the best ride! What works for me possibly will not work for you! And remember the lower tire pressure you run the more heat build up you will have inside your tires. I'm not a tire expert far from it but, I have a lot of knowledge about tires from being a truckdriver who logged over 4 million miles over the road. I'm now retired after 44-1/4 years of driving. I've never weighted all 4 corners of any of my RV's and I have been RVing since 1976. My last and current coach that I bought new in 2004, I weighed my front and rear axle with all tanks being filled when my coach was new and I was overweight! So I never bothered to weight again! Good Luck, Rooster

RE: BAd driver

Last time my RV was hit, the driver that hit me had no insurance! Made things very easy for me! My insurance company took care of everything!

RE: Traveling vs Camping

To me RVing is a way of life that I enjoy! And it's nice to sleep in my own bed and not worry about bed bugs etc. and my pets are with me. I haven't found a hotel yet that allows my large parrot.

RE: Picking up our New to Us Class A on Friday

Tug, I have a Roadmaster Tow bar system that was recommended to me by my welding shop! It's 17 years old and still looks and preforms near new! I also tow a Honda CRV.

RE: General Winnebago mechanical questions

90 weight oil will be fine in the rear axle!

RE: Upgrade to a DP?

I've always wanted a DP and can afford one but I don't travel the miles to justify buying one! In fact I'm driving less miles every year due to health concerns and I'm retired!
