RE: Caulking Roof

Many people plastic chisel up as much of the old Dicor as they can, and then cover the area with Eternabond tape (Amazon carries it in several widths). If you have a Winnie type fiberglass roof, which are known to loosen on the edges, wind gets under the thin fiberglass, and rips part of the roof off. So you might consider using 2" Eternabond tape in the J-channel along the edges to prevent that problem. Also, many people use 4" Ebond to seal the front and end cap to the roof. Here's a link to my blog where I did just that as PM: Fiberglass roof Preventative Maintenance.If you look at his profile, he has a Tiffen.

RE: Phaeton Motorhome

We really liked the Phaeton when we looked. The only think wierd I remember was the continuous hot water but looks like the 2009 had a standard hot water tank. Not saying the continuous was bad, just nothing I had experience with. We have the six batteries (gasmat) as well and it seems to be a nice balance for the fridge (same model as ours) and I thought we got over 35 hours with it, but I may have to re-try again and check voltage.

RE: 96 Winnebago slide out w/awning

You have a 20 year old RV with a 20 year old Slide Topper. Others that are posting should NOT assume you do NOT have a slide awning lock. They were used until about 2002 on some models of Carefree Slide toppers. So, IF you can post a pic of the slide topper, we can give you info on IF it does have the slide lock. Doug Slide awning lock or slide lock - you said both and they are distinctly different.

RE: 96 Winnebago slide out w/awning

You don't happen to have a switch in the panel that says "slide lock" do you? Our full wall has a slide lock at the top that is electric. Other than that, it could sure be the slide topper is jammed in there. See if you can unscrew the brackets from the slide and try the slide without the topper.

RE: Class A Gassers and The General Quality of Products

We looked at many - Winnebago seemed to match our preferences and after learning a little about the company that was all the DW wanted to look at. Ours has been great, and after coming from a 5er I have no complaints about build or quality, this thing is a rock.

RE: Diesel Pusher Blues

Granted Cummins and Volkswagen are different but as with anything as it gets out in the field and some use they tend to get feedback and improve the systems. Ya, I think the biggest difference is Cummins is honest about the results :S

RE: RV Insurance

We've never had a claim so can't really recommend anything. Safeco is our current company based on best value for us at the time. Before that we had replacement value through camping world on our 5er. That got too pricey on MH. As said above, it's all about driving risk (age-record), zip code, and credit history along with other demographics so no two people get the same answer.

RE: New to Class A are lots of steering corrections normal?

We came from a 5er and I was impressed with how well the Class A tracks. As expected though, wind can push you around a bit, and high wind can tire you. Agree with others - have it checked at a reliable service center.

RE: Coleman AC warranty

I tossed a video camera once after it broke, only to find out it had an extended warranty from Best Buy. My rule after that was 0 extended warranties because by the time the factory one expires I've already forgotten I had an extended warranty. I personally would consider an AC reasonably reliable, so not sure the risk justifies the cost. There are a ton out there still chugging away after 20 years.

RE: base plate for toad is bent

Definitely a lot of chest beating in this thread. In the end the OP resolved it himself. Probably sorry he asked :)

RE: Coleman AC. Should we upgrade to heat pump

Another option may be the electric heat coil in the furnace. Cheap Heat. I don't know anyone that has this, but the advantage would be that it would operate continuously down to temperatures that the heat pump would not (<40 degrees), and it would circulate as well as your existing furnace to a point - they do have to slow the fan down to match the heat output.

And we very quickly learned that you cannot live without those items once you become accustomed to them. You can't, others can. Key words Once you become accustomed If you have never had them And.don't buy them You don't become accustomed to them Dang, look how much money I would have saved if I never got accustomed to an RV and just stayed in a tent :)
Mile High 04/28/17 11:07am Class A Motorhomes

I found I really enjoy almost all of them and we are glad we went the way we did. You forgot one (heated floors for like $7K). NEVER would have ordered this and we love it! These "options" are likely carefully thought out by the mfg and driven by demand etc. Heated floors would definitely be nice! That tile is c-c-c-cold in the morning! :)

RE: Looking for a Class A with one slide

There are a ton of 1-slide DP out there. Once they (slides) caught on, the typical single slide was the LR, followed by the Bedroom as a second one. If you like the feel of having your coach almost as usable down the highway as it is in the campground, no slide and 1 slides are great. Once you get into multiple slides, they become far less usable and passenger friendly down the highway. Almost all of our walls on both sides are slides, which makes it incredibly massive inside when opened up, but when closed, not much is usable. We can get to the fridge, the 1/2 bath, and there is a place on the couch to sit but kitchen, beds, etc are not reasonably accessible.
Mile High 04/27/17 04:02pm Class A Motorhomes

The Dealers don't give a rats most of the time what options it has on trade in. We like options, so when we looked for used we turned away from most that looked "stripped", but that doesn't mean the next guy didn't buy it. I will say most options cost you far more to have retrofitted later, mainly because they are harder to wire in and high labor vs the factory. The guy before us figured he wasn't go to use an outiside TV so he didn't get it, and it is going to cost me twice what he would have paid on the order for me to get the factory type TV installed.

RE: Advise or help

Let me guess. You buy it, they ship it and if it doesn't meet your approval on inspection you get your money back! Be very wary! Just did a Google search Vinton Auto consignment and rip off came up in the search. They are a scam.

RE: Follow up from Meemaw and Pop pop?

If CW can't put some consistency in attitude and service, why take a chance with them? Yes, 1966 but that was catalog order followed by a few retail outlets and install. Nothing like the cluster it is today, not the same people, not the same vision or value system. In fact, you are likely to get the finger before a good morning. Service Manager apologized for his dip nut gatekeeper at the counter that put us on the 8 week park it and wait plan for a "we owe" at purchase, but said he trained him to be that way. He said his job is to bare his teeth and scare everyone off he can because they are so busy. I tried to find humor, but he was serious. I would start by chaining the doors and shutting off the lights if it was my shop! Not the same place that used to sell you pop-a-plate :)

RE: Follow up from Meemaw and Pop pop?

Mile High, how do you know who bought your turned in used rig? Pretty cool they contacted you, wish many more would do that BEFORE they are taken. I have never bought a rig at Camping World, but have friends who have and each of them have had NOTHING good to say about the transaction etc. Unfortunately we have another friend who just made a transaction with the CW in Union CT and hope they are good to our friend but I have little hope. The problem really is that they sell units and do not go over the units for defects before they deliver the unit, so right away the customer has problems and then they have no interest in fixing the problems once the unit is paid for, so it is a bad problem. I totallly buy from individuals used and have not been burned yet. RV dealers are similar to Used car dealers and that is NOT a compliment. Did I see that Camping World is going public and Marcus Lemonis is getting out of the RV business? I am not sure I saw that or if it is right but would not surprise me. IF so, would advise anyone, DO NOT BUY THE STOCK,! I learned of the new owner of our trade through our old forum. He contacted me because he recognized my pics on the forum. Hope he is liking it, as we were proud of that one. We haven't stayed in touch beyond talking CW war stories :)
