RE: Air pressure with the tire off

Any difference from weight is negligible. if loading the tire caused pressure to go up, the factory would have to give you a different PSI spec for your spare. (not saying your MH has a spare- but in general terms).

RE: Is It A Rear Engine Or Rear Drive That Makes It A Pusher?

In a parallel universe - when the same rear engine diesel chassis was introduced into fire apparatus, the nickname "hush pumper" caught on, because they were quiet enough in the front to have a conversation. I don't think I ever heard the term "diesel pusher" until I looked at RVs.

RE: Thinking about 5th trade in for class A

My dad used to have a truck that he towed, and the receiver of the Tow bar was welded to the frame of the car. I'm not sure I want to have 2 round receivers welded to the frame of my New F-150 Are there any other methods of securing the Toad?Things have come a long way since then. Most of the base plates hidden from view when the tabs are removed, and I don't think any are welded to the vehicle anymore.

RE: Thinking about 5th trade in for class A

All of those reason you mentioned and more is why we traded our 5er and dually for a Class A last year. Don't regret it one bit. We just used Speedco to change oil - it was a nice experience. They did not have my fuel filters in stock so I've learned to call a few days ahead next time and they will make sure all is in stock. We also use Blue Beacon to wash it unless I have time myself. We have Blue Ox gear and a RVi2 brake. I don't think there is a bad tow bar, but I did hear the aluminum ones had some issues. Anthem is nice coach. We looked at a 2013 I really liked, but couldn't come to terms. Just a thought, It's always a good idea to keep a spare fuel filter(s) in the rig. A plugged up filter can really ruin your trip if your nowhere near a place that happens to have yours in stock. Some have two different filters on the system as mine does so finding a place that has both can be even harder. Cheap insurance to keep spares.Agreed. I'm still not sure what mine takes, and plan to visit Freightliner here in Denver tomorrow. I will probably get one set to carry.

Congrats on that new rig!

RE: Hot water pipes whine

Even if it did come with the heater I would replace it. It may be bad new. They are not expensive.

Diode kit for my JK was super simple to install.

RE: Hot water pipes whine

However, the WH was recently replaced and it came with a new check valve per the CW repair tech First potential false assumption :) CW tech said a lot of things were done to mine. Once I figured out he liked to talk more than fix, I was able to erase any assumptions about what he did and start over to resolve some issues. Even basic things like - "Your rig was serviced and a new oil change tag is in the window". The oil change tag was correct, the rest was a lie.

RE: Hot water pipes whine

It may be possible that you have 2 check valves. When I heard that whine when using hot water, I replaced the check valve at the water heater. Still had the whine. Called Winnebago and was told there was a 2nd check valve and was told where it was located. Of course it was an arms length to reach. I got it out and removed the broke plunger and reinstalled it. No more whine.. Could be a check valve on cold inlet fitting at WH Tank But thought that was a 'Winnebago' thing ---for some reason they think it is necessary It ain't :BI believe it is necessary if you want to use the HW heater bypass (as one convenient valve) to winterize. If you install a valve in place of the check valve, then you don't need the check valve. It's definitely not a Winnebago thing - every 5er we ever owned had the same check valve and they all hummed eventually and had to be replaced.

RE: tow dolly vs. Tow bar

I guess there are two approaches - The vehicle type you drive is more important to you so you tow it by whatever means is required for that specific vehicle, or The towing method is more important to you so you find a vehicle that can be towed using your preferred method. Neither is the wrong answer.

RE: tow dolly vs. Tow bar

I heard, but haven't tried it, that if you really need to back up, have the DW jump in the toad and use it to back up the motorhome. I probably could with my Jeep on a level surface with the MH in neutral.

RE: Pagosa Springs, CO to South Fork, CO-Hwy 160

Wolf Creek handles all sizes of rigs, and it's really over-rated on the scary factor. I know trucker songs have been written about it, but it has been tamed quite a bit since then. I just came back through there with our DP pulling a Wrangler. The west side is the steepest grades so you'll be pulling instead of descending, and there is some construction towards the base on the east side by South Fork that narrows the road a bit. When we went through they had it down to one lane and a traffic control light to alternate traffic flow.

RE: Picture of MSRP 06 Monaco Exec

That was an order sheet at MSRP. Hopefully the original owner paid nowhere near that. Typically factory options are a fair value when you look at the discounted price.

RE: Picture of MSRP 06 Monaco Exec

Boy that is a nice coach! What is the See vision with monitor option? Mile High, that was one of my favorite items on our '08 Dynasty. There was a monitor on the dash (Aladdin system) that you could pick a camera to view. You could toggle between either side camera, the rear camera or the inside camera that was located where you would have a rear view camera. If Mom and Dad were in the bedroom, they could turn on the screen in the bedroom and toggle through the camera's outside or watch to see what the kids were doing in the living area. We have a similar system in the Liberty where I can look around the coach from the inside through the camera's. We don't have an interior camera in this one. Safe travels, MarkThanks Mark, that would be a nice feature.

RE: Coach battery/Generator

You can get your full manual here, but you have to decided if it was early 2014 or later 2014 based on your VIN; Winnebago Industries Resources I lost my house batteries over the winter. Same issues - I could charge all day and when I unplugged they died before I go to the door.

RE: Size matters...right?

I may be generalizing, but I think once you get over 40' you are getting 1-1/2 bathrooms. If that's not important to you, there isn't a lot of gain going over 40', and there are even 40' and under with 1-1/2 baths but it starts to get tight. Tag axles track in wind better I have heard, but that's not why they are there. They are there to overcome the load on the rear. If you have 40' and under, the manufacturer may not have installed a tag, but still may be a well handling coach. In 2013, we were the longest Winnebago made (43'6") and we struggle in some places, but when I drop the Jeep I only have to park 43.5 feet. In most 5ers you are parking 60' or more while the truck is hooked up. We agree with what Don says above.

RE: Norcold 1200 4 door fridge HELP

Well, I may have a rear radiator, but my Norcold woes are way behind me. My "sub standard" Freightliner coach came with a Kitchen Aide :)

RE: tow dolly vs. Tow bar

Tow dollies have to be stored, they are a pain to load, they have cheap ST trailer tires and Chinese wheel bearings, but they tow vehicles that can't otherwise be towed. It's like Flat tow eliminates the tow dolly, self storing towbar on the MH and hidden base plates for most cars. Get the right flat tow vehicle (such as Wrangler), and they are tow ready without all the electrical concerns and battery cutoff and other stuff.
