RE: tire replacement

IMHO, there is no set age on tires! Every year past 4 years I have my tires broke down and inspected inside and out! I don't care about the cost, what I care about is peace of mind that my tires are good to go after been inspected by a tire expert. To throw out a number of years is a disservice because every tire is different and who knows but you how it's been maintained. If I'm buying a used coach with no tire history I don't care about the miles on the tire what I care about is what the inside and outside of that tire casing looks like from a tire expert. Then, I can make a informed decision based on fact!

RE: Tow Bar Age, how old is too old ?

I bought my Roadmaster towbar new in 1999, this is my 16th year. I have it inspected once a year and I spray silicone spray before and after every time I use it. Good question!

RE: Motor home insurance

Don't skimp on coverage when you do get it. You may need to file a claim and end up in severe shortage. X-2, insurance is to protect you! We havie Geico Insurance. Sure treated us right when my coach was hit by a runaway truck and the driver had no insurance. They called us everyday fixed everything right and didn't raise out rates! Great customer service and service overall!

RE: Rodents

Your going to have to use a bait trap to get then out! I prefer not to use bait traps because it draws them to your coach, but once there already in you have to get them out. I don't like using Decon because it makes rodents thristy and they may chew thru one of your water lines to get water, especially under the flooring. I haven't had rodents in my coach in 5 or 6 years. Once I got them out I bought 2 electronic noise devices. I keep one plugged in (inside the coach) the front end of the coach and the other plugged in at the rear of the coach. I also went to Lowes and bought double 00 very coarse steel wool. I took out every drawer in the coach and stuffed steel wool in every crawl space that I could or runway or open space. Did the same with the under storage areas. Any place that I could find a opening I used steel wool. I also used steel wool around my Genset! Rodents got in there one time and chewed up my wiring harness and other wires it was over $1,000.00 repair. I don't worry about it anymore. Good Luck, in the method you choose.

RE: Warning about United Shades

I had custom Alan Roth shades from Lowes, the kind the auto roll up when giving a slight tug, they fit inside the Fleetwood valance just fine, they were only 2 inch thick, when looking for new shades you must also check how thick it is in the frame when rolled up. X-2, we had to replace one shade in our coach several years ago. We bought it at Lowes in Lake Havasu City, AZ. they weren't custom (stock) but Lowes employees helped us in making them fit.

RE: Floor Scales

I've never weighed my motorhome since I drove it off the showroom floor. Full of fuel, propane and water I headed to the scales and it was overweight. I've been RVing since 1976 and I have never weighed any of my RV's. I've never had any handling problems in any of my RV's. I guess I've just been lucky!

RE: Highway thru Hell

I have never heard of the Canadian show that you guys are referencing. I would really enjoy watching it. I like the ice road show going to Alaska which may have included Canada. I'm just glued to those shows when they come on. I've been guilty of watching the dash-cam video's, which mostly, are Russian (on YouTube). I can watch hours of it! LOL! It's amazing how many Russians use dash-cam's and the severity of the accidents. MM. Mark, Adam a tow truck driver helped a broken down truck on the Coq. in that truck was Mark Miller a Canadian TV guy. The show airs in Canada and the U.S. so far there has been 36 episodes plus 8 reloads. Sounds like that Jamie guy already has paid for that $600,000.00 tow truck.

Highway thru Hell

The Canadians call it the Coke, in B.C. Canada. Does anyone know if the wrecks on this TV program are staged or not. I've seen during the TV program during winter RV's, cars, trucks and big trucks all wrecked on this Highway. My 19 year old Grandson say's the wrecks are staged for TV? I really can't believe how lazy and stupid these people are driving up and down this mountain pass if there is no staging for T.V. Three most common mistakes I see on this snowy icy mountain pass is driving to fast for conditions, to lazy or don't know how to put on tire chains and using the Jake Brake on ice or compact snow which causes the vehicle to jack knife. I seen one show where there was a truck wreck and traffic was backed up and chains were required and this one trucker didn't chain up because he didn't know how? What! A trucking company sends it's drivers out to drive over that pass and they don't know how to do the job? Unbelievable to me!

RE: What was your best DIY road side repair?

I had a leaky heater hose I was able to find a small rock on the roadside that fit into the hole. I used black electricians tape to wrap around the rock to stop the water leak. That road repair got me into town where I could buy and install a new hose.

RE: Circa 2002-2004 Cat C7 Heui Issues

Rooster. For MH's Cat has advised just the opposite. You must run less oil to prevent the slobber tube from spitting out the excess. Moisheh Thanks for the info I wasn't aware of that!

RE: Early 90's Class A --which brand best to buy?

I think it's a real disservice to recommend a certain brand. What I would look for is a coach with the best floor plan that suits your needs regardless of brand! Good Luck in your search!

RE: Tis the season - Theft

Sounds like tweeker druggies to me! I'm lucky to have my coach stored at home! I always leave my storage compartment bins unlocked and I have a non looking gas cap. I don't want my storage bins pried open or a hole in the bottom of my fuel tank. Sorry to hear about your theft.
