RE: Where can I buy large tire covers

If they fit the Adcos are fine. I've had a set for at least 6 or 7 years, year round , and they've held up well. X-2, I bought mine at CW!

RE: tire rotation

No! I was told that by Michelin and my local tire shop! I've been RVing since 1976 and never have rotated a RV tire!

RE: Michelin tire sidewall issue

I've been running Michelin XRV's on my coach for 2 decades with no problems.

I've owned both and found out Class A steers better than a Class C and you sit higher therefore you can see better when driving a Class A. More room for bottom storage in a Class A.

RE: Fuel Cost in Arizona?

The 'use fuel tax' doesn't apply to private MHs If you fuel up at a pump that is set for the higher fuel use tax......go inside and get your refund of $.08/gallon. All you have to do is ask cashier, fill out info on THEIR 'refund tax form' (provided by AZ Fuel Tax Division) and sign for refund. X-2, I've never had a problem at fuel pumps in Arizona! I've been going to AZ. for many years and I stay there for 6 months at a time.

RE: Vinegar or Baking soda

Has anyone ever used white vinegar or baking soda to clean out the grey and/or black tanks? Nope, mainly because vinegar, baking soda, or hydrogen peroxide won't sanitize, but bleach will. Read this. At room temperature only bleach will sanitize. Plus, you only need a 50ppm bleach solution (1/4 cup per 15 gal of holding tank capacity). To sanitize like bleach but using vinegar or hydrogen peroxide, you'd have to heat the liquid to 130 degrees F and use full-strength solutions -- that's 15 gal vinegar or H2O2 per 15 gal holding tank capacity. $$$ Use bleach. I would never use bleach in a black tank! JMHO

RE: Sudden drop on MPG causes?

This is a good example for checking fuel mileage. I have done it at every tank on our coach (even though it's diesel). If a person didn't check their mileage do you think this would have been caught? MM. X-2, I check my mileage like Mark at a minimum of at least once a year! Very good practice!

RE: winterize questions

IF you hook up hose to city water connection it has to go thru same plumbing lines you just winterized. If you have a black tank flush connection...that goes directly to black tank only No flush connection........hose down toilet Also can fill sinks and drain....that goes directly to grey tank After dumping waste tanks...... some anti-freeze down toilet and sink/shower drains. anti-freeze helps waste tank dump valves and in sink/shower 'P' traps http://www.adventurerv.net/imagemagic.php?img=images/winterizing-rv.jpg&w=&h=&page= X-2, this is what I do also.

RE: Shock Absorbers

I have Bilsteins and so far very happy with them! Way better than the Monroe Shocks that I had replaced.

RE: What comes after you’ve selected the Coach?

I'd rather buy from a private party, they don't usually have professionals clean and detail their coach, you can get a better feeling as to how well a coach was cared for. Always use your bank and financing, never the dealers. With a private party you are not paying the dealer mark up. With a private party you can see the prior owners maintenance records. With a private party you can take your time and see how each system works, what they have used as chemicals, waxes, etc. And you don't get the bums rush that many dealers will try to put on you. Deal direct, take your time, go thru each and every component/system, ask questions, we shopped 2 years before we found what made us happy, and never had any owner get angry with us for looking. X-2, Check out all the service records to make sure the coach has been properly maintained and any promises need to be in writing!

RE: Vinegar or Baking soda

Happy Camper or RV Digest they have enzymes that eats up everything inside your black tank. These 2 products are very good at cleaning your tank sensors!

RE: New to RVing with our dogs

I wouldn't think that you would have any troubles with your dogs. We travel with 2 dogs with no problems. The only time we have been hassled about dogs at some Private RV Parks they wanted to know if we had dogs that were on some dangerous dog list? I know very little about this list? We own a Red Standard Poodle and a Westie!

RE: Question on length

427435: What are your thoughts on the 35u? I recently looked at a 2004 Winnebago 35u (2003 F53 chassis). I really thought the unit was thoughtfully laid out, and construction solid. Concerns were: never had a central lower AC unit, the power was only 30A, and wondered about the power train since it had the 4R100 trans. Would appreciate your thoughts. I also own a Winnebago 35-U, Workhorse 8.1 with Chevy 496 CI engine with a Allison Transmission. The 35-U was Winnebagos best seller in the 2000 / 2010 era. I've had mine over a decade with very little problems. My coach is 50 A and I love the basement air / heat pump!

RE: Gasser rides like lumber wagon

Why not? Harold the "P" Chassis is Ford not Workhorse!

RE: Lower Gas Prices...Are you RVing More?

No, all of our trips are pre planned, when it's time we go no matter what gas prices are!

RE: Gas under $3.00

And headed for 2 bucks a gallon. I hope your right!

RE: spare tires

I haven't had a spare in over 10 years! I don't want one due to a back injury many years ago. Changing a spare out on the road for me would be like wrestling with a gorilla with all the weight involved with a spare tire. I'll just call road service and wait however, long it takes if that ever happens to me. I've been RVing since 1976 and I've never had serious tire trouble out on the road. Similar experience - except we've been Rv'ing longer than that. Never a tire problem. However - what does one do if experiencing a tire problem in northern BC or the Yukon territory? As I understand it, Road Service will change your tire - if you have a spare. What happens if you don't? Or - if one carries an unmounted tire - will road service mount and install the new tire? I don't travel to Canada! Did one time in the 90's didn't like how people in Canada treated Americans! So that wouldn't be issue for me maybe someone else!

RE: are all Winnebago 37F's junk?

Maybe the actual owners of 37F's can tell us all how junky they are. Lol. I haven't heard of any owners having problems or consider them junk. X-2

RE: Over Priced Used Motorhomes.

My coach is a 2004 Winnebago that I bought new in 2004! It's not for sale but, the paint is faded from the sun in Arizona (I applied treatments of Aerospace #303) but the sun is still to harsh on the paint. The underside of my coach is rusty and it's rarely been around salt water. Coming back from Arizona in the spring to Washington State, California and Oregon DOT use a chemical on there mountain passes that is very harsh on the underside of chassis. For me to get under my coach and grind the rust off would take 6 months no way that I'm doing that. My tires, brakes and steering is all near new as is the inside of my coach. When I put my coach up for sale if someone was to complain about the rust or faded paint, I would tell them to take a hike! I'm not paying $27,000.00 for a new full body paint job!
