RE: Afraid to make the leap to diesel

I had the jitters about my first diesel pickup! I used to turn a wrench back in the 70s, but today it just seems I leave it to the pros for both gas and diesel, except for my little Jeep. Cost will be higher on the diesel, but if you stick your head in up in there and look around, I think they are far simpler than a gasser. I wouldn't hesitate to put a wrench to a few things in there.

RE: tag axle MH sagging... what to do?

Did you try calling Mor-Ryde?

RE: Toad hit three times

Wow! I think the flag on a stick towards the rear would be best. I used to put those on my boat for triple tow because I couldn't see it back there otherwise. The beacon is probably a little annoying for those following behind you, like those road workers that forget to shut theirs off and it causes congested traffic behind them because no one knows what the warning if for.

RE: LCI - Lippert

Another reason I don't like LCI products. Check this video out. It tella one how to override the Schwintek slide system in the event of problems while traveling. I can't even imagine the nigh mare this would be on the road. https://youtu.be/xojUdPDWNS0 Thanks for the video link. I learned something today. That is far more simpler than I ever thought it would be.

RE: LCI - Lippert

NOTE: This is copied and pasted from another forum I belong to. My desire is to give a heads up to those with LCI/Lippert systems, or those contemplating purchasing a rig with this brand on the unit. I hope it's not confusing as I'm copying a few follow up posts. Not very pleased with LCI products. I'm not a Lippert fan, but I fail to see where Lippert contributed much to your hassles. Their product failed. That's where Lippert contributed to the hassle. ALL Lippert products fail, without fail. What's your point?

RE: Urgent: Need Tire Advice Class A Diesel

I personally would wait until Wed. I wouldn't mix tires brands. For what you saved buying those Toyos, you pay in lack of availability.

RE: Blue Ox Kargard

I looked in to one - but the collapsible arms on the front use the bumper to fold them back in turns. on mine, they would rub against the painted bumper. I know they are soft, but that is out of the box. Within minutes my bumper is dusty and that would scratch.

RE: Bus or Motor Home

We always "play down" the many virtues of our beautiful 2008 42ft Monaco Dynasty when in general conversation with people not familiar with the camping world and just call it "our camper". Otherwise they feel "funny" and call us "rich folks". It makes no difference to us if there is a "correct name" we just love what it affords us to do. To us it will always be just "our camper". becker We still call ours "the trailer" out of habit and it kind of stuck.

RE: Bus or Motor Home

If you find one of these on the seat when you get in, it's probably a BUS :) Wouldn't that make it a limo? If it has more than 16 seats, then it is a bus. My Prevost was never a bus. The shell was converted into motorhome right away. Lot of high end conversions started as a bus and later were converted. Still conversion is a motorhome. DP is just a submodel of motorhome. What part of a bus driver hat with a Flxble badge that has a picture of a bus on it reminds you of a Limo? Loosen your tie a bit and quite trying to make this technical! :h

RE: Bus or Motor Home

I always think of the big Blue Bird, or flex or GMC when I hear bus. Not saying it's right, just how my brain was programmed over the years.

Sunroof glass on Toad

Anyone ever lose the sunroof glass on their toad from gravel coming off the MH? Looking at a new F150 and they are glass from front to back!

RE: NHTSA& EPA want to limit speedof vehicles over 26,000 lbs

Hopeless conversation - I think I'll get ready for my 588 mph trip in a 129,000 lb tin can with wings and have some peanuts while everybody freaks out about weight and speed down below - jeezoots.

yes, mountains and curves and grade and traffic and visibility are all factors....

RE: Tag axle pros / cons

Tags are a direct relation to weight. I started out only looking at Tags because I thought I would have a bigger carrying capacity, but in reality the tags just means you needed the 30,000 instead of 20,000 lb capacity in Engineering, usually because of >40ft. We ended up with a tag because we liked the floorplan with the bath and a half, but we lost some cargo space below because of the tag. Pick the floor plan you like, and whatever axles it has - it has. We looked at many without tags that were just as nice (some even one and a half bath), they just didn't need he extra axle based on weight. With the Cummins, I was told to try to get into the ISL (8.9L). That's the 400/450 hp versions. Don't know why, just what my Cummins folks told me. Fiberglass roofs are the best invention ever made! After decades of caring for those rubber roofs and peeling that lap sealant off of them, it was a real pleasure to go up on a roof with a scraper and roll off that lap sealant in a few seconds and apply new (I just added vent covers and Travler antenna on mine).

RE: Split King Motorized Adjustable Bed

You might try Innomax as well. I understand your dilemma. My in-laws just got the split sleep number for their home and I don't think that would work on a flat platform like the motorhome. It for sure would never work in mine because our bed already raises at the head for bringing in the slides. We can both elevate, but not one at a time.

RE: NHTSA& EPA want to limit speedof vehicles over 26,000 lbs

yep - one truck going 1 mph slower but they are both maxed, so the faster one pulls out to pass the slower one and we all wait. I can only see it getting worse than it is now. Exactly - and we see it all the time. :S And now in NYS they've gone to running snow plows in tandem in the Interstate too - at 35 MPH max. How long do you think it takes that rolling roadblock to start? Worse yet, how safe do you think having that many cars bunched up on winter roads is? The state would never admit it, but I know this area very, very well. It's very rural and traffic flow is light. There is not a chance this ever would have happened unless the stupid tandem plows had traffic stacked up. There just it's that kind of traffic flow. This happened in the north bound lane, we were traveling in the south bound lane without issue. The southbound lane wasn't being plowed and traffic wasn't stacked up. Funny how that works... 30 cars & 4 tractor trailers pile upHow fast do you expect to drive in the snow? At 35 MPH those plows would probably be pulling away from me. No need to bunch up when driving slow but most drives still do. The reason there were not 35 vehicles involved was because the 35th actually had to proper following distance for speed and conditions. No you don't get it CA - 35 is way too slow on even the snowy roads - and the worst thing that can happen to you is to follow the plow because your vehicle is getting the fresh Magnesium Chloride that plow is spitting out the back, destroying the finish on the front of your vehicle, even at 2 miles behind the plow. The best place to be in a Colorado snow is with the blue light in your rear view mirror fading away. You folks have your own issues to worry about - like those Kamikaze Café Racers that use the white line as a speedway between cars. Jeezoots - I just came back from there and that hazard would keep me in my lane for sure, regardless of the speed of the guy in front of me.
