RE: No spare tire holder on our 2011 Coachmen Mirada 29ds. What?

My RV is a 2004 Winnebago which I bought new in 2004 and it did not come with a spare tire! I asked why and Winnebago said there was too many back injuries to RVers handling those heavy tires and rims! This is a very good point but also a good excuse for Winnebago too save money on every coach going out the door since 2004 without a extra tire in the coach! They saved millions of dollars by this move!

RE: Tire pressures and axle weight

I also own a Winnebago and tire charts giving to me were bogus! Both manuals Michelins and Winnebagos both said to run my tire pressure at 85 lbs. rear and 90 lbs. front. This didn't work for me due to I was experiencing tire squirm on the rear axle. What I did is take notes on the handling of my coach every time that I went out camping using different tire pressures. I settled on 100 lbs. all around! These tire pressures worked so well for me that I was able to get 10 years out of that set of tires. I'm now in my 3rd year of my second set tires. You have to experiment to see where you get the best ride! What works for me possibly will not work for you! And remember the lower tire pressure you run the more heat build up you will have inside your tires. I'm not a tire expert far from it but, I have a lot of knowledge about tires from being a truckdriver who logged over 4 million miles over the road. I'm now retired after 44-1/4 years of driving. I've never weighted all 4 corners of any of my RV's and I have been RVing since 1976. My last and current coach that I bought new in 2004, I weighed my front and rear axle with all tanks being filled when my coach was new and I was overweight! So I never bothered to weight again! Good Luck, Rooster

RE: BAd driver

Last time my RV was hit, the driver that hit me had no insurance! Made things very easy for me! My insurance company took care of everything!

RE: Traveling vs Camping

To me RVing is a way of life that I enjoy! And it's nice to sleep in my own bed and not worry about bed bugs etc. and my pets are with me. I haven't found a hotel yet that allows my large parrot.

Thanks, Sailor Lou and AZ Andy for the explanations!

RE: Picking up our New to Us Class A on Friday

Tug, I have a Roadmaster Tow bar system that was recommended to me by my welding shop! It's 17 years old and still looks and preforms near new! I also tow a Honda CRV.

RE: General Winnebago mechanical questions

90 weight oil will be fine in the rear axle!

RE: I test drove my first motorhome today - Noisy

Keep in mind that your driving a house on a truck frame!

RE: Upgrade to a DP?

I've always wanted a DP and can afford one but I don't travel the miles to justify buying one! In fact I'm driving less miles every year due to health concerns and I'm retired!

RE: Search Continues

I've been RVing since 1976, I've owned RV's with Chevy & Ford motors and the Chevy 8.1 is hands down the best gasoline motor in a RV IMHO!

RE: Crock pot cooking while traveling?

I put mine in the sink. NO towel. Might cause it to over heat. Works good. X-2

RE: freezing weather

So far I'm O.K. we've had snow 2 days ago (very rare in my area), and the cold coming down from AK. has us in the mid 20*'s for 2 days now! Clear and cold again tonight and a 1/2 foot of snow coming on Thursday. I've had my furnace on in my RV since the start of this storm along with my compartment lights on at night. So far no problems!

RE: Pear Harbor Day

I can't imagine a sunny warm Sunday morning your laying in your bunk on a ship and bombs falling from the sky and torpedos coming at you from the water! A utter helpless and hopeless situation! All those WWII service men and women were very brave! I have the utmost dignity and respect for all WWII Vets.

RE: "Flex Seal" for an RV roof?

What I'm reading don't sound to encouraging! I have a can in the storage compartment that I never have used!

RE: Hawaii

Thanks for the posts so far and I'm assuming that there is no RV dealerships anywhere in Hawaii? I've only been to Hawaii one time we stopped to refuel as I was on my way to Vietnam (1969) so I'm out of the loop about RVing in Hawaii.

RE: Winnebago RV house batteries

Terry let me be the first to welcome you to RV.net and Happy Holidays to you and your family! I own the exact same coach as you a 2004 Winnebago Adventurer. One thing you want to be careful of is the Battery Disconnect Switch it's right on the steps to your left as you enter your coach. Not only do I hit this accidentally with my foot or leg and switch the batteries off. My dog also hits the switch when she enters the coach. Check the switch first! On your Roof you have a solar trickle charger which constantly helps charge your house batteries. If your not aware the 04 Adventurer is Winnebagos top of the line gas coach for the year 2004. Also not having fully charged house batteries can effect other things in your coach like the Kwikee Steps. I changed out all 3 of my batteries last month because they were 8 years old and wouldn't hold a charge and they were causing my Kwikee Steps not to extend or retract. I'm at 14.5 volts now and everything is working. Feel free to PM me anytime as need be if you need help. John

I'm curious to know if there is RVing through out the Islands? State, Federal or Private RV Parks? Are there any RV Dealerships there? I can't recall hearing from any RV.Net posters from Hawaii?

RE: Lost man
