RE: Coach water system schematic

I have a WorkHorse chassis manual, I have the Coachman's Owner's manual, and I have the brochure on the coach a 2007 Coachman Epic, but for the life of me I cannot find a schematic of the water (or for that matter any system) installed by the manufacturer after receiving the chassis? Coachman was absorbed by Forest River a few years ago but when my Coachman was assembled it was the Coachman plant. Anyone know of a source for the what's hidden inside the walls/floors of your coach? I would hope that the nearest dealer's shop would have a schematic! I looked at the new Coachman in 2004 when I was in the market to buy a new coach and Coachman had one of the best water systems on the market IMHO.

RE: Would you buy a 200k miles Pusher?

Yes, if the engine was properly maintained! The worst milage that I've gotten on a diesel engine was 750,000 miles the best 1,200,000 miles before a rebuild. Are truck shop ran synthetic oil and changed the oil filter every 10,000 miles and the engine oil every 20,000 miles. These engines were run 5 times a week under heavy usage.

RE: Sweet Spot for DP Odometer Mileage

100,000 miles on a diesel engine is near new to anyone who has experience with them. I've drove them most of my adult life everyday!

RE: Interiors

Tom / Barb, we have light colors in our coach! And in our stick built we went with maple hardwood floors one strip of wood light the next strip dark throughout the house and it turned out very nice.

RE: under sink filtration water discolored

Time to change your filter when it's discolored.

RE: 2009 Winnebago Adventurer 38n

Good Luck with your new coach I have a 2004 Adventurer that I bought new and have had very little problems with it. There very solid coaches and I'm sure you will enjoy it.

RE: Are Our Tires REALLY that sensitive?

I've been RVing since 1976 and of yet I never had major tire problems. I'm not into all the technical gadgets etc. I air my tires at 100 psi before I head out on a trip and before I return from a trip and that is it. Same as when I was driving a Semi. Just as important is other tire care that no one else is talking about. Your rubber tires are very sensitive to road dirt and grime, heat, cold, moisture, going over curbs and holes in the road surface, overloading, dirt roadways, and I see this at every campground I go to RV's up on blocks and the block surface does not cover the complete tire surface which can result in inner side wall break down and damage which you can't see. Great Question

RE: stolen trotwood

Sorry to hear about your bad news! I would try to see if your local TV Station could do a little short story about it being restored and stolen! That would really have people looking out for it.

RE: stress fracture

No it's not normal and I would take it back to the dealer as other posters suggested! I'm sorry to hear about your troubles.

RE: Diesel versus Gas

I didn't even consider fuel that much when I bought my RV new 10 years ago. I don't drive the miles to justify myself buying a D.P. Especially now that I retired. I drive to Arizona sit for six months then drive back home and sit for six more months. If I was driving all across the U.S.A. etc. I would buy a D.P. It's just not practical for me the way I use a RV to justify all the costs of a DP. What I like best is a very low payment and my coach is being close to being paid off.

RE: setting five months run the engine or not?

When in Arizona and my RV is sitting for 6 months, I run the engine for 20 minutes once every 2 weeks. I've discovered by doing this in unison with my RV's solar trickle charger helps to keep my batteries charged. I've been doing this since 2004 without any adverse effects. In other words it works for me and I could care less what anyone else thinks.

RE: leveling

It appears that "scotch blocks" is a term used in tow trucks and railroads-it serves the same as a chock in aircraft. ( and RV's) Thank You, I drove OTR 44-1/4 years and I wasn't familiar with that term. I was on the track gang with Great Northern Railroad in 1969 and never heard of that term!

RE: Necessity of a spare?

What I was told from a representative from Winnebago in 2004 (when my coach was brand new) no more spare tires to customers due to back injuries and other injuries caused from RV owners changing there own tires. And to be honest with you, I'm to old to be tackling a heavy tire out a shoulder of a freeway, I leave it to the professional tire people. Great Question!

RE: Anyone tried these tires?

No! And, I never heard of them or seen them on any vehicles!

RE: OK to run furnace while traveling?

No! My Winnebago has a duct system to where the dash heater air is blown throughout the coach. It keeps my coach at 65* when it's very cold outside and I'm traveling. Winnebagos have one of the better heating systems in RV's. They make all there heating ducting systems at there factory.

RE: Levelers/Stablizers

IMHO, levelers are a Must!

RE: Why does it seem that the RV salesmen of today look lik60's?

I shop for new RV's at Roy Robinson RV in Marysville Washington State. There sales people are way above average in the RV trade. Takes me hours to get to this dealer but well worth it. There sales manager is also easier to work with than say Poulsbo RV.

RE: Southern California and Rving

IMHO, Cal Trans and the private contractor are both at fault for not having proper traffic control (signs & detours) at the work site. There should have been a detour in place for larger vehicles to exit and get around the concrete barriers. Cal Trans should of had a compliance officer at that site to insure everything (barriers, signs, flaggers, detours) were properly in place and being used correctly. I'm sorry you had to experience that, and the "Merry Go Round" that followed between Cal Trans and the private contractor pointing fingers and blaming each other is totaling unacceptable! Taking pictures was excellent! I'm retired from a trucking company and our boss had cameras in all the glove boxes of all the trucks to take pictures regardless of fault. Good Luck to you on the lawsuit! I would love to sit in the jury box of your lawsuit!

RE: Any tips for backing into my camping site solo?

Lot's of good advice so far, just keep in mind when backing up 3 things can happen and two of them are bad.

RE: dealing with loss of pets

All of our past and present pets are on the screen saver on our I-mac computer. We see them everyday!
