RE: Considering this used Class A.......

Thanks for posting the pictures! The coach looks great to me! I 'm retired truckdriver and have driven diesels my whole adult life. The worst milage I ever got out of a well maintained diesel is 750,000 miles the best 1.3 million miles. The engine is under powered, I would offer $13,000 for the coach ( I believe the coach is worth the $15,000 if it's well maintained) after the sale, I would spend $2,000.00 to have a Gale Banks diesel engine improvement kit installed to help boost the H.P. of that coach. JMHO Good Luck with your new coach Roy.

RE: Quartzite AZ

Where are you planning to go? There is a number of campgrounds with full hookups if you need them. Last year, most of them were about half full. The weather n Q can go from excellent to krapy real quick. Sometimes you can be in shirtsleeves and then next you have to be in thermal underwear, you never know. With our "World's Finest Motorcoaches" we are able to go 12 days without a dump or fill and still drive off with 1/4 tank of fresh. That includes a shower for two every day. But then again, Country Coach people don't get that dirty! We will be at mile post 99 during the last week of the RV show. I'd like to know how you do that, 12 days without a dump and still have water available. I do good going a week and taking Navy showers. Wish I knew your secret. :S I made a big mistake out there one year Ghost! To save on water going into the gray tank. I used the outside shower to wash my hair after dark. I didn't completely shut off the shower head and we ran out of water overnight.

RE: new owner of A 2000 Georgetown

If the engine is properly maintained I would say 250,000 miles are more!

RE: Another Blowout!

I would call Goodyear and see if they want to inspect the casing and find out what they will do about it!

RE: Taking off while the other occupants sleep

Since I retired I don't get up early anymore! And I don't drive more than 5 hours a day. Before retirement the DW would not allow the coach to be moved until she is up and had her coffee. She does not like to be disturbed when she is sleeping.

RE: Quartzite AZ

Be carefully of the Valley fever and Quartzite crud. OH!!?????:E....:h Sully, If you have a low imune system be careful when going outside in AZ. when the wind is blowing those Valley Fever Spores are in the air when it gets windy! Use a bandana to cover your face. If you stay at La Posa Campground (BLM) it's 1 mile south of Quartzsite as your heading toward Yuma on Hwy.#95 it's $40.00 for 2 weeks and they have septic dump there and fresh water. If you don't care to move your coach from your RV site there are trucks that will come to your site from Quartzsite to bring you fresh water and to pump out your septic tank on site. See you in the big tent!

RE: Cold weather refrigerator question

I've never ran into this issue and I've been RVing since 1976! I leave my fridge on 24/7 /365 and the coldest weather I've been in was 9* with no problems.

I love my Dish and my Hopper! I might have a bone to pick with them later down the road if they don't settle with CBS!

RE: Dealership service challenges if buying coach elsewhere???

I bought a Winnebago from a Winnebago Dealer (Roy Robinson RV) and they went out of there way to please me and never complained about anything. I also gave them good ratings to Winnebago. It's a two way street!

RE: Time to bite the bullet on batteries

I replaced my batteries not long ago with Interstate and my tires last year thru the FMCA Michelin Tire Fleet program. If I have good luck with products I stick with them regardless of price. Good Luck

RE: 52' Motorhome

Washington State allows motorhomes up to 46' max overall length. http://apps.leg.wa.gov/RCW/default.aspx?cite=46.44.030 "It is unlawful for any person to operate upon the public highways of this state any vehicle having an overall length, with or without load, in excess of forty feet. This restriction does not apply to (1) a municipal transit vehicle, (2) auto stage, private carrier bus, school bus, or motor home with an overall length not to exceed forty-six feet, (3) an articulated auto stage with an overall length not to exceed sixty-one feet, or (4) an auto recycling carrier up to forty-two feet in length manufactured prior to 2005." You can tow a trailer as well but you have a maximum "combination " length of 75' including the tow vehicle. Semi trucks operate under a different rules because the "tractor " does not count towards the length I.e. you can tow a 5th wheel trailer up to 53'. I guess it all depends on what Washington State DOT website you look at. I also got my info from a WADOT Website and it said 40'. I drove truck for 44-1/4 years and with my over length permit I was allowed to be 75 feet 6 inches. My set was 75' 3" with a long converter dolly and was only pulled over once in all them years by a female WSP Weight & Measures Officer at the Cle Elum scale house. She got out her bridge weight chart and it said I could go to 75' 6" I called her eagle eye from that point on. I believe in what you posted! I don't post anything on this website without fact to back it up.www.dmv.org/wa-washington maximum length

RE: 52' Motorhome

The DMV Law for Bus lengths in Washington State is 40 feet. I've seen lots of 42' RV's and the police treat them like they could care less if they are a few feet over. That's because the Wa. DOT treats them like a box truck, they can be up to 75 feet in combination. I once had to prove this to a local LEO. Thanks Tom, I wasn't aware of that!

RE: condensation

Dehumidifier is the greatest product that I ever bought for my RV. Keeps all that water from going down inside my windshield. I empty one coffee cup or more a week out of it.

RE: Towing, 2008, Honda, ,Element, 4 down

We have towed an 04 Element, an 09 CRV and now a 2011 Element. Honda pulled towing approval for Elements after 06 but they are the same drive train as CRV which is approved thru 2014. We follow the procedure and have never had a problem with tens of thousands of miles. Great car. X-2, This is correct information. Honda stopped the 4 down towing with there 2015 models and I believe 2013 with the Fit. Honda has gone with that CRT transmission that cannot be towed 4 down. The Honda manual says to turn the key to acc. then go thru the gears and leave the trans in neutral. It also says not to tow over 65 MPH and change transmission oil every 30,000 miles.
