RE: Winnebago basement air

With basement air I don't have to worry about tree branches or low clearances hitting my roof top air. And, I don't have wind pushing my RV all over the road when the wind gusts hit the roof air units.

RE: Got Coach back and they unplugged radio

I wouldn't let it go that is "Bad Service" when I get my RV back from Service Dept. I don't want anymore problems no matter how simple.

RE: Hercules Tires

Hardest Rubber Tire that I ever ran on a vehicle!

RE: Traveling without a TOAD

Just call Enterprise when you get to your destination. X-2, The DW and I traveled to the Mt Rushmore area several years ago without a toad and used Enterprise! We were staying at the KOA in Rapid City and Enterprise brought the rental vehicle right to our RV site. We have just done this one time to try it and it worked out fine on this trip.

RE: When towing with a tow dolly, overdrive on or off?

I use OD when towing when driving over 50 MPH and higher.

RE: To Plan or not to plan campgrounds

At any State of Washington Campground you have to reserve a spot a year ahead of time from May 15th to September 6th. Otherwise you will not get a place to camp unless someone cancels out!

RE: Driving time

Tom, since I retired, I drive 4 hours and sometimes 5 at the max! Being a retired OTR Trucker I don't ever want to driver 10 hours again.

RE: What is a Jake Brake?

Holstein13, I'm a retired trucker 44-1/4 years OTR and a simple explanation of a Jake brake is when you flick the Jake switch it turns your engine into a compressor as a result the back pressure caused by this helps slow down your vehicle.

RE: Slides won't extend

My slides will not go out if the parking brake on the RV is not set!

RE: Brand rankings

I've been RVing since 1976 and can't answer your question! All major brands build lemons at one time or another. And RV's are not ranked like a Car and Driver magazine.

RE: Is it really too far to walk to the bathroom at a rest area?

I'm a retired Over The Road Trucker and when I stopped at a rest area I always used the restrooms. I enjoyed the short walk also which, gave me a chance to stretch out my legs! I never carried a pee can in my cab and never knew of any other trucker that did and I drove for 44-1/4 years! I heard of some truckers that would urinate outside at weigh stations which, I totally disagree with. The new semi's with sleepers (not day cabs) have motorhome technology built inside of them!

RE: New to RV world, starting to shop.

I recommend that first off set a price that fits your budget and stick to it. Next when you narrow your search down to 3 coaches pick the coach that has the best floor plan that suit your needs. Don't pick another coach because it has a nicer paint job. I'm in retirement and the wife and I have a 36' Winnebago Class A that we drive back in forth to Arizona during the winter. So far since we owned this 36' coach we have not be able to get into only one campground, and it was a Forest Service Campground up in the North Cascade Mtn. range. I've been RVing since 1976.

RE: Survey - How Do You Store Your Class A?

I store my RV just like all the RV selling stores right out in the open weather which they are designed for! All my coaches that I owned have been stored outside properly and I've been RVing since 1976! Great Question!

RE: Tire question

FMCA has a Michelin Tire Discount Program where you can buy Michelin Tires much cheaper.

RE: Newbee question for long timeRVer's

I traded my old RV in on a new one for more space. I upgraded from a 31' to a 36' to better our living quarters. I've been RVing since 1976.

RE: Core Value of Old Tires

Core value also depends on the age and condition of the tire. When I bought my new tires even though they had plenty of good tread the dealer junked them!

RE: Working in winter location

I keep everything on during the winter when I'm not down in AZ. My coach has basement heat and I don't worry much unless it gets below 25* then i winterize the coach.

RE: Shocks

I changed my shocks 2 years ago from Monroe to Bilsteins and they have provided me with a satisfactory ride.
