RE: Winnebago Adventurer Roof issues

Unfortunately the maintenance on the roof is mentioned in your owner's manual. It mentions that it needs to be inspected regularly to maintain the seal. For this reason your insurance company can back out just like they would if you let the oil go low on your engine. This was a known issue and I'm sure that it is not the first time that the insurance company has dealt with, and rejected, paying for repairs caused by lack of maintenance. Naturally the insurance company will claim that any receptionist(you did not speak to an adjuster) is not authorized to tell you what you can or cannot do. This is a Winnebago design fault and let the buyer beware because even if YOU, as an owner, perform maintenance checks on a regular basis, like many do, they still may deny any warranty issues unless you have written documentation that the service was performed according to their standards. I agree. Who thinks that gluing down a roof is maintenance? "Hey everybody... you .... you retired person..... Climb up that ladder risking life and limb often and make sure our glue didn't fail". Crazy. Usually Winnie is very good about stuff. This one surprises me. Ah, so maintenance should be limited to only what a retired person can do :)? I guess I shouldn't be expected to change my oil or check my brakes either because I have bad knees (which I don't) - or did it possibly mean that you should do it or have someone do it if you aren't capable. I think the point was more that it has to be done every 6 months, and it's not something you can do without either climbing up a ladder or working off the roof. Plus the 6 month thing; I was just thinking about our roof. Ours will be 10 years old in August. I have spent maybe a total of maybe 10 minutes on roof maintenance, and it still looks like new. There you go Bruce - banging your friggen drum again. You couldn't give me your POS rubber roof. I'm happy it has held up for you, because most never make it the 10 years. Buddy just showed pictures of his last week on another forum and his 3 year old rubber roof is totalled and the manufacturer gave him the same finger because they said he didn't follow the maintenance and inspection schedule. He sucked it up and had it sprayed. A 6 month inspection schedule is not out of line. Heck Lippert requires 6 months wheel bearing inspection in their manual. You have to take all that with a grain of salt and just be your own advocate to make sure your stuff is in shape. If you physically can't do it, or can't afford to have someone do it, then you are running it to destruction and you accept that, or you probably shouldn't own it anymore. PS - I don't believe your roof looks like new after 10 years - your sensationalizing and embellishing. Your roof is the same POS rubber as the rest of them out there.

RE: Dish or Directv - Best satellite to purchase

Most of the customer service reps can't see outside of the box. RVs just confuse the heck out of them.

RE: 2005 Monaco Dynasty vs 2007 Fleetwood Discovery

You guys are funny! First I hear, "drive drive drive that diesel because it ruins it to sit", but here is one with 7K miles a year and its all worn out and deserves a huge cut in price :) I also hear that a high mileage diesel with documented regular service is worth far more than low mileage undocumented diesel. What would it be worth if it had 9,000 miles on the odometer? I think in the end, people just get skittish about anything over 40,000 miles on a MH, regardless of what the forum says :) You just have to make your own judgement on care and condition and fair market.

RE: Dish or Directv - Best satellite to purchase

We upgraded our house to the Hopper 3 with 8 TVs and Dish still let us add a MH receiver for $7/month which I can suspend over the winter if I want. I had to get the ViP211z because the new Wally is having issues operating unless it can get all 3 satellites. I'll get the Wally as soon as that issue gets resolved. We used to have a Hopper and 2 Joeys in our 5th wheel on a separate Dish account we would suspend over the winter, but we didn't need it for the MH because of the 4X4 matrix system factory installed.

RE: double pane window

Just know that the double pane ends at the cab. My windshield and side windows in the cab are standard automotive glass, unlike a trailer that may have double pane throughout. Double pane are great for noise reduction, minimizing interior frosting, and some thermal credit, but the noise reduction is awesome for us, don't care about the rest.

RE: double pane window

Tiffen builds their own windows, so they are unique. At least in the DPs, the windows were double pane - very thick double pane.

RE: Placing retirement on hold and selling RV

All I can add is, travel and do what you want while you are able. You don't know what life will hand you tomorrow. Amen to that!

RE: HELP! can't decide on this rv.

There was a whole caravan of them that used to run to the local lakes around here and camp on the beach. They were painted fancy and made great beach houses that you could drive home. I think they had fun, all up to what you are into. If you are trying to restore it to original, that is a tedious and sometimes unfulfilling task in the end, because you sometimes end up with something you wouldn't have bought in the first place. I drug an old CJ home from my Mother-in-laws garage (with her smiling) with the intent to restore it and tow it. After pondering it for a while, I figured I had better things to do than put heart and soul into a toad with drum brakes, bad defrost, soft top and terrible cornering and that's after restoration. It takes a certain type of person :)

RE: Is This Water Damage

I wouldn't want to look at that regardless of what caused it.

Great looking coach - that is one of the few layouts that made good use of a Mid section TV for actually viewing it!

RE: Another Oldie. Not mine

Mine too! but that is a dedication and love for animals I don't share with her. She definitely got that from her Mother.

RE: Winnebago 3 year Warrenty on diesel pushers

if it "extends" to 3 year, then it is probably whatever is covered under the original warranty.

RE: Winnebago 3 year Warrenty on diesel pushers

They dropped the Itasca line? I know it's like Chevy and GMC just didn't know they did it. They haven't dropped the Itasca line, just the Itasca name. As far as I know all of the former Itasca models still exist under the Winnebago banner.so far. I doubt it will stay that way too long

RE: Winnebago 3 year Warrenty on diesel pushers

Awesome! Now that they got rid of these silly Itasca's I guess they can do that :B Just kidding, love our Itasca

RE: Looking to buy a diesel pusher - How big is too big???

I'm wondering now if I should abandoned my bus conversion project :) http://pic100.picturetrail.com/VOL1523/6528899/12657597/413182460.jpg

RE: Looking to buy a diesel pusher - How big is too big???

How many places have you been to that your 5er "barely fit"? Those would be places too small for a 45 ft MH.

RE: JK Wrangler towed flat wiring

Thanks all! Picked up the Jeep today, and ordered the Hopkins. I'll give that a try.
