RE: What CAT engine do I have?

Thank you. The big yellow engine with the CAT sticker and the cat sticker on the outside of the coach lean me to believe it is indeed a CAT. 3126 may get the conversation started with my FIL X-2, I drove CATs all my life and the engine block will be Yellow in color if it's a CAT!

RE: Brown Spots on RV Awning ($2.97 SOLUTION)

You don't want to get Purple Power on paint it can damage a paint surface. It's used largely as a engine degreaser!

RE: Towing 4 down

Ok, ok, maybe a manual trans Yaris (that's just a toy, isn't it? :>).... I can't even find it on the Remco site and I can't find my motor home dinghy towing guide. Anyway, in 2010 we were looking for a new toad, preferably a Toyota (had three of them at the time) and one that held more than two people. Our first choice was a Rav4 but found out it was not 4-down towable. So we set our sights on the Highlander...nope, not that either. Then the 4-Runner...nope, once again not that too. Got to checking all available sources, and at that time, we couldn't find anything Toyota made that was towable. Didn't check the Yaris....way too small for us. Checked on this and other forums and the consensus was that Toyota was not interested in the "toad" world. We narrowed down all other choices to the CRV and the Terrain (lots of others in this category) and decided upon the Terrain. So far, after 55K miles, it was a good choice. Hope this helps Ron I really liked my Yaris Ron, but my wife didn't like driving a stick shift! So I sold it! I like you wanted to buy and tow a Toyota to tow all 4 down (my brother in law sales Toyotas), but as you discovered they don't make a towable all four down with a automatic transmission. So we just bought a new 2014 Honda CRV 4WD thru Costco. We were told by Honda that 2014 is the last year that the CRV can be towed all four down due to Honda is switching to the CRT transmission on the 2015 (CRT Transmission are currently used in Subaru's).

RE: Rambler Admiral vs Coachmen Mirada -- Advice

I also agree with the other posters that said HR. I do like the water systems in Coachmen Coaches.

RE: Covering cars when towing

I was wondering if anyone has any suggestions on covering your towed vehicle. I have a tow dolly that I plan on towing our Acura on behind our Class A motorhome. I dont think the motorhomes rear tires are back far enough to kick up much splash but the Acura is my wives baby and I wouldn't want to get any rock chips or broken windshields. Any in expensive suggestions are appreciated. Thanks I've seen Bra's used on tow dollies. You can buy them at CW.

RE: Tire Pressure Gauge and Chuck

My extenders never leaked air but, I did change them out and put new ones on when I put new tires on my coach. The old ones lasted 10 years!

RE: Windshield popping out

I visited Novus a few months ago to have my windshield resealed. While I was there 3 other Class A's were in there with windshield popping out issues. I told Novus that I didn't know that it was that big of a problem. Novus told me that a lot of RV manufactures in the past didn't glue there windshields in place, and that the more curve that is in a windshield the more the chance that it has not staying in place. In fact Novus was working on a late 90's early 2000 Pace Arrow and the tech told me they were not going to work on them anymore, just to much trouble he said trying to keep the windshield in place.

RE: Coach tends to wander

Most times it is the road not the coach. X-2 and wind amplifies it!

RE: lifetime of chassis batteries?

I just replaced my Chassis battery after 4 years and 2 months. I had a Interstate Gel Cell installed as a replacement and, I'm hoping to get 5 to 6 years of life out of it! I've never been able to get more than 4-1/2 years out of my chassis batteries and I have been RVing since 1976!

RE: Towing 4 down

No Toyota can be towed 4-down without modifications. Been there, done that. There is a person here on rv.net who does tow his Tacoma 4-down but has a driveshaft disconnect that has been pretty much error free. However, have read several post of people who also have drive shaft disconnects but have had a LOT of problems. So be aware. Good luck Ron I towed my Toyota Yaris manual transmission all 4 down for years with no problems (Washington State to Arizona)

RE: Towing 4 down

I owned a 2010 Toyota Yaris manual transmission and I towed it all 4 down for years. All I did was turn the ignition onto accessary to unlock the steering. I can't see any difference in towing any Toyota that has a manual transmission all 4 down!

RE: Small Class A with Large FW tank

Look for an Alpine Coach. Plenty of fresh water and holding tank capacity. X-2

RE: Results on $190.00 per hour survery

All: I have no idea why that thread was closed. Those of you that answered I want to thank you. Perhaps I broke a rule or something with my survey, but I'm very confused why the thread was closed. Again Thank you. Tommy I missed it Tommy! I would have liked to read it! Last thread that I seen that was closed the OP was posting about traveling with handguns. That and giving out web addresses is a no no on this site. Well, I don't think anyone did any of that. Oh well. It was interesting though. :)yes For the benefit of those who missed: That Thread I can only guess the reason for closing the topic was the overwhelming number of replies in the "NO WAY" column - which indeed includes MY vote. This time I'm siding with the moderator... ...Enough was Enough! Thanks for the clicky to that post!

RE: Fleetwood Bounder Classic 34B

Sounds like a good coach to me! Having owned a Fleetwood Coach in the 90's they have good factory service.

RE: RV Drivers License

Come to Washington State, State law does not require a Special License to drive a RV. Anybody can get into a Class A and drive for 24 hours straight if they choose regardless of there experience or health (really scary to me). Why don't you have the person your buying the RV from teach you how to drive it? Congrats on your new coach!
