RE: to drain or not to drain fresh water

I don't drain either tank. No point in it for me since that water is not used to drink or cook in.

RE: Weigh Station

Weigh Stations are for Commercial Carriers only in the State of Washington! They don't want Motorhomes or pick up trucks driving onto there scales.

RE: Cleaning Top of M(Fiberglass)

How does everyone keep from slipping off the roof with all the suds and soap? Just saying, the slippery surface really freaks me out. I use deck shoes! (It's what the sail boaters use for slippery surfaces in my area).

RE: Cleaning Top of M(Fiberglass)

Roy, I use Simple Green on my fiberglass roof and I mix it 1 to 1! Then I use a deck brush as a scrubber!! Lastly, I use a power washer on a easy setting and I Do Not power wash any seams. I'll be doing my MH next week.

The last correspondence that I had with Pat was in June of last year (2014). On their annual trip through the Southwest last year, the (diesel) engine blew on his Foretravel. They had to leave it down there and have a new engine put in. They flew home while the engine was being replaced. When they flew back to pick it up, there were problems with it about an hour down the road. Again, back into anther shop for more costly repairs. This resulted in more hotel stays, flights to and from home etc. By the time all was said and done, the whole ordeal cost them thousands upon thousands of dollars. When they finally arrived home, Pat's wife (and I imagine Pat to some extent) were so disgusted with the entire incident that they put the Foretravel up for sale and got out of RV'ing. Too bad because Pat, being a retired OTR trucker, was quite a knowledgeable guy.Thank You, for the information about Pat! I didn't know about all the costly repairs!

Has anyone heard anything from Pat? He is a long time RV.Net Poster from Buffalo, N.Y. and he hasn't posted in quite awhile? Thanks, Rooster

RE: Possible insurance discount for having a CDL license

I'm a retired OTR Truckdriver and I still have my CDL after 5 years of retirement and, if your not driving professionally you are not required to take the annual health test. On my CDL there is a restriction on my license saying I need to take a health test (physical) before I can go back out on the road again driving professionally. I have a current CDL and I haven't taken the drivers physical in 5 years. Just wanted to clear that up. I also have Geico Insurance and I've taken the Smith System Driving Course which also gave me a discount.

RE: Trip planning Upper Washington State US 101

Dennis, wherever you decide to stay around Port Angeles make sure you visit Hurricane Ridge! Take Race St. in Port Angeles and head West until you run out of road. It's very beautiful up there you will be up over 5000' in elevation with no snow. You'll be looking right at Mt. Olympus and the Elwah River drainage. Lots of wildlife up there also. The Elwah River right now is a giant science experiment never seen or done before in the U.S. both Dams on the Elwah River were tore down several years which drained Lake Mills and Lake Aldwell. It's a free flowing river now from Mt. Olympus to the salt water of the Straights of Juan De Fuca! Enjoy!

RE: Gale Banks upgrade on Workhorse w22 with 8.1 GM

Has anyone done a Banks Stinger or a Power Pack upgrade to a W22 chassis With the 8.1 GM. Has it made a worth while difference in power? I'm hope to squeeze a few more horses when it comes to climbing hills. I'm not expecting any improvement in fuel economy. Any feed back would be appreciated. Thx Art I've put close to 80,000 miles on my stock 8.1 and have crossed the country several times climbing over many mountains with a 4,000lb toad behind me. In my humble opinion I don't think you need to spend any money to get more power as this engine pulls pretty strong just as it is. Put the money you were going to spend on it into gasoline and take more trips. I agree with this post!

RE: Seat Belts

Wherever there is a seatbelt in your coach and if someone is sitting in that seat, then it's a State Law you must buckle up in Washington State. Too take this a step further in Washington State the Federal Government pays LEO's money for this enforcing this law.

RE: Winny Brave 32v

We just purchased a 2002 Winnebago brave and we have a couple of questions now that we have lived in it for 4 weeks. If anyone can help, we would appreciate any answers you may have. 1/ Below the TV in the drivers area there is a map light........where the heck is the switch?:h 2/ On the floor we have several heating grills......I haven't found the heater yet!! 3/ I see that the Brave is pre-wired for a CB, how many people out there use one? 4/ oooh edit the post.......I see a lot of you record the states you have visited...how do you do it, where do i get one? Thanks Terry I own a 04 Winnebago and my map light switch is a switch on the dash that I have to use my thumb to either go up or down on the switch. When I'm done turning the switch downward the map light comes on. It's not a toggle or a dash switch it's more like a very small wheel switch. My floor heating grills the heat is piped in from the radiator on my R.V. and not from the dash heater. My RV is also pre wired for a C.B. but I never cared to install a C.B. radio unit in the 11 years that I've owned it. Lastly, I never cared to record what States I've been to, but you can buy that stuff at your nearest Camping World Store (CW). Nice Coach that you bought have fun RVing in it!

RE: How many hours a day do you drive?

I drive 4 to 5 hours a day when driving from Port Orchard, Washington State to Lake Havasu City, AZ. and back. I try to really enjoy my driving time, I don't speed, stop when I want!

RE: Cordless Upright Vacuum Cleaner

We have been RVing since 1976 and have owned all the major Vacs. The best one we owned has been a Dyson! Pricey YES! But it's the real deal you get what you paid for JMHO.

RE: Watch that bridge!!!

That low overpass has been on RV.Net before several years ago!
J-Rooster 04/23/15 12:53am Class A Motorhomes

On any flat stretch of road or downhill driving, I kick in the OD at 40 MPH it's a great fuel saver for me especially at 59 MPH, @ 1900 RPM, "the sweet spot".

RE: Black tank chemicals, Happy Campers, TST, Aqua Kem ???

I've never used chemicals in my black or gray tanks! I use RV Digest in my black tank it eats everything up in the black tank via organisms that digest everything in the tanks.
