RE: Tire inflation

My Michelin & Winnebago Chart said to run my 22.5's on my coach at 85 lbs. rear and 90 front! I was experiencing rear tire squirm at those pressures! I experimented with different tire pressures and ended up running 100 lbs. all around. It has worked out very well for me, a tad rougher ride, but my tire wear couldn't have been better I was able to run my first set 10 years with no problems and I'm in the second year with no problems on my current set!

Great Actor & Comedian, but he was a lousy Class A Driver! My favorite movie was Patch Adams! GOD Bless your soul Robin!

RE: Tire Temperature - What is Significant?

What you don't want is to run your tires at a low tire pressure! That causes extreme heat build up and that is bad.

RE: How do they jack up big coach when replacing tires?

The tire shop had 2 large 8" X 8" wood blocks that they stuck under my front and rear HWH jacks and had me jack the coach up, first the front then the rear (all wheels were blocked to prevent movement), then they put my new Michelins on.

RE: M/H to Toad Braking Systems

I upgraded from a box brake to the Roadmaster Invsibrake. Absolutely nothing to do - no switches, cables, air lines or anything else. A light on the MH dash indicates the brake is activated. There are a variety of braking systems and the above recommendations are all good. Thanks for the info! I think I'm going with this set up on my CRV and I'm also going to run a live battery wire back to the toad!

RE: M.P.G.

Yes, tag axle will make you use more fuel! More weight added to the coach and when driving more friction (energy used) turning those extra wheels and tires.

RE: How long are (have) you keeping your MH in retirement

I bought my coach new 6 years before I retired! I still have it 10 years old now!

RE: CO2 Detector - 2003 Winnebago Journey

In my Winnebago it was hard wired in. I had to remove two screws to remove cover from wall. I bought a new detector for around $60.00 my old one lasted 7 years. I installed it myself in about 3 minutes. Good Luck

RE: Ford V10 question

You mean factory? First (2000 chassis models) got the improved crank, that boasted HP from 295 to 310 (F series) Then in 2005 the three-valve was introduced (F series only) that boasted power to 362 HP The 2-valve is still being shipped in E series (at least through 2014) The 1999 version (first year of the V 10 in the F53 chassis) of the V10 installed in the F53 chassis was 275 hp. In 2000 they upped the Hp to 310. While the 362 hp version was introduced to the F53 chassis in 2005 it was technically a 2006 chassis. Ford ran the 2004 model early into 2006. They skipped the 2005 model year designation and went to the 2006 model year designation when they introduced the 3 valve per cylinder 362 hp version of the V10. In short there was no 2005 model of the F53 chassis. The 2006 model years and newer also include the 5 speed Torque Shift with the Tow/Haul mode. X-2, I owned a 99 V-10 and I agree with this post!

RE: looking for a motorhome for primary residence

I would check out a Winnebago Adventurer there built with winter insulation package.

RE: Ski trip in a Motorhome. Am I crazy?

One thing I discovered while ski camping.Don't put your jacks down in the snow. They tend to freeze to the ground. Found that out the hard way.X-2, Another thing that I discovered is I had my slide outs extended out overnight and it snowed and when it was time to leave I couldn't retrack my slides due to the snow on top of the slides, and I didn't have a ladder with me. So I had to climb up onto a snowy, icy, roof with a broom a brush all the snow off the slide toppers. Then I was able to retrack the slides. Bring a ladder with you in case it snows!

RE: Class A

Welcome to RV.Net! Great question! I run our genset and turn on the air when it gets to 90* I have a heat pump in my coach (basement air) and remember to keep your fuel tank at 1/2 or above most gensets will turn off automatically when you get to 1/4 of a tank or lower. Have a nice trip visiting the West!

RE: Batteries

Yes, when going down the road and, Yes, when parked or camped if you have a solar trickle charger.

RE: Which oil

I don't own my V-10 anymore traded it away! But I used Mobil 1 - 5W-30W Synthetic Motor Oil with the gold cap (Extended Performance). In fact I still use that oil today in all my vehicles.

RE: What kind of batteries do I need for 1987 Fleetwood Bounder?

Jerry, IMHO it's about what you will be happy with! I have a 36' gasser that gets me where I want to go just fine!

RE: Been sitting and thinking...

What a great question! First off I don't think because I'm getting information from a idiot! Secondly, if your medically fit to drive it's your call! I'm dreading that day because I'll feel like I'm losing a freedom, but if I know in my heart of hearts It's not safe for me to drive I will have to do that. My Mom had to quit driving at the age of 80! Just couldn't do it safely anymore! Good Luck, Rooster
