RE: help with long term storage

I'm a West Coast guy so I can't help you with storage, but I recommend that you get rid as much fuel as possible before your coach is going to storage. Take Care, Rooster

RE: Back up camera acting up

T-Bone, good for you on the fix! Any more troubles I suggest that you give Tim Lazroe a e-mail at RVCams.net he has a wealth of knowledge that he doesn't mind sharing and he's located in the South.

RE: 1995 Winnebage Vectra 33RQ with FORD 460???

I just took my coach out after a 2 year sit and my only problem was with the gas! The gas is bad after sitting that long so if you purchase this coach I recommend using 3 cans of SeaFoam for every 50 gallons of fuel in the tank. You can get SeaFoam at most auto parts and the cost is around $8.00 per can. This stuff is "GOLD" when dealing with bad gas! Good Luck in your RV search.

RE: A/C or de-humidifier?

I'm in a cool, moist, damp climate in the Pacific Northwest and my dehumidifier is the greatest gadget that I have inside my coach, besides the DW.

RE: Winnebago - Defective and Deceptive

Just wait until the roof peels back. You will think the decals are minor. Ronnie, you sure know how to give a guy hope! But your right, know matter how bad something is there is always someone struggling with worse problems.

RE: Winnebago Products windsheild cracking

I have severe frame rust in my windshield frame holder but never a cracked window. And I've never seen a Winnebago recall for windshield cracking.

RE: must replace gasket on windshield

I own a Winnebago my windshield is glued in so Novus fixed it without taking the glass off. The more of a curve in a windshield the harder it is to be put back in. When I was at Novus they had a Pace Arrow in there for a windshield replacement and it took Novus three tries to get it back in place.

RE: 95 Thor Columbus or 95 Winnebago Vectra?

On our neverending quest for a reasonably priced Class A motorhome and we have found 2 other "contenders". Both 1995 year. One is a Winnebago Vectra w/ 28,000 miles on it. Supposedly it has been sitting for 2 years. Pics look good but you know how that goes... The second motor home is a 95 Thor Columbus with 46,000 miles on it with a rebuilt transmission (3k on it) and new bigger A/C unit on it both from Nov 2015. They both have a 454 engines with the Thor having L480E overdrive and the Winnebago having a "gear vender". So without seeing, which rv SOUNDS better??? I have heard some bad things about Thor but seemed like it was with the newer ones. The Vectra was Winnebagos top of the line gas coach in 1995.

RE: Best way to level when the jacks don't work

I've alway's used and carry with me 2"X10" Douglas Fir wood planks 24" in length. I get my wood at Lowes (I buy one 2" X 10" X 8' long) and they cut it for me for free. The 10" planks are wide enough so all of my RV Tire is on the board.

RE: levelers used when storing RV?

I store with all 4 tires on the ground then I use my leveling jacks to take weight off the tires.

RE: Refueling locations for gas class A towin

I just look to see if I have room to get in and out! I've been RVing since 1976 and never hit anything or had to break down the toad.

RE: Class A versus Class C Motorhome

I've owned both and a Class A steers better when turning and you sit higher allowing you to see better.

RE: levelers used when storing RV?

I always have my jacks down in storage to keep weight off the tires! Makes for better and longer tire wear not having all that weight on the tires all the time.

RE: Any problem with the refirigerator behind the driver?

All refrigerators that I seen are bolted to the floor or wall! My slide out is behind the drivers seat.

RE: How many use HAM vs C/B for rig to rig etc?

Ham. Had my call letters 12 yr, my wife has hers. I have a CB but am sick of drivers dropping the F bomb. It's just a reflection on their IQ. I agree with your CB post! Most of the large trucking companies don't allow there drivers swearing because it reflects on there image. The company that I worked for you did that (swearing over the air) you were fired. I've also noticed most people that swear are angry people!

RE: Suggestions for Visiting the Badlands and South

As I entered the Badlands N.P. there was a helicopter for rent so I went thru the Badlands with a view from the air. I stayed at the KOA in Deadwood for 3 days and visited all the sites around the area. Prior to that I stayed at the KOA in Rapid City for 3 days and went to all the sites around there.

RE: Just wondering....

As we get older, those of us who will be survivors will adjust their driving styles, lifestyles as a whole really, to our diminished physical skills. Chronological numbers don't work for this. That is the answer. Numbers don't work. It is up to each of us to decide or, better yet, have a regular physical, and let a doctor decide when we are too old to be safe. Listen to the signals and don't deny the inevitable. Remember that getting older is a gift that many do not get to experience. Don't drive unsafe and jeopardize the lives of others who still have their life ahead of them. This answer is right on! You will know when it's time to stop driving! Until then clear your mind of this subject and enjoy RVing. I'm 66 and still can drive my coach but I'm going to have to give up the game that I love the most Golf it's just to hard on my body even with a cart!

RE: Finding County Parks

Also, very nice La Paz County Park on the Parker Strip about 20 miles South of Lake Havasu City AZ. (If your a snowbird) it's across the street from the Desert Canyon Golf Course and it's first come first serve.

RE: How many use HAM vs C/B for rig to rig etc?

Where have all of the truckers gone? Cell phones, HAM or? Great Question! I trucked on the West Coast for 44-1/4 years. Most of us truckers had 10 liter radios and we talked on the funny channels (These were channels that we had installed in our radios that were above Channel 40. Old CB's had 23 channels until the late 70's when CB's were allowed to have 40 channels. Funny Channels are Channel 41 and above the channels we talked on on I-5 were in the 70's) I ran a Galaxy DX-44 and it was pumped up plus I ran a 250 Watt Amp. What I really liked about the DX-44 was it was able to pull in the signal to the other trucker that I was talking to as we were driving in the opposite direction. I had a CB Radio Shop install my funny channels and it was very nice quiet polite channels. Truckers get sick in tired of listening to filth on the regular 40 channels where most of the filth comes from and the worst was coming out of Tacoma, WA. base sets. We complained to the FCC to no avail.Did you call em' and say you can't talk over those filthy truckers even with your 1/4 gal linear? :) I used to build those way back then but the smallest we sold was 300w dead carrier. Btw: Liter = Meter To honestly answer your question I couldn't get ahold of any of the line drivers! I caught up to a few of them at a coffee stop and they told me why I couldn't get ahold of them. Bye Bye to that useless Cobra 40 Channel CB and hello Galaxy 44DX. Most of the filth were coming from base sets ran out of people houses in the Seattle/Tacoma area not the truckers that I ran with.
