RE: Towing Car On A Trailer - Weight Limit

I have never seen a Gas Motorhome with a higher tow rating than 5,000 lbs. All Diesel pushers have ratings of 10K -15K or more.

RE: Switching Browsers

I deleted Google Chrome due to problems after they updated it. Several of my friends also had problems and deleted it. I switched to Firefox and very satisfied. Ad blocker works very well with it.

RE: Class A Insurance

I had National Interstate Ins. who quit handling MH insurance in December 2017. I contacted Geico RV, Overland Ins. Safeco, Progressive, Good Sam and Foremost. I found the best price and coverage with Foremost that was recommended by my regular Insurance Agent and I went with them. If you have a regular agent you might check if they handle MH insurance or contact Foremost direct. https://www.foremost.com/products/motor-home/ The next best but slightly higher was Overland. It all depends on your coverage,year of MH,and what coverage you want. Meghan Kozacek, CISR Overland Insurance Services 800-677-4027 Fax 480-994-0448 www.rvins.com

Safeco vs. Foremost MH Insurance Comments or Experience

I have narrowed my choice down to Safeco or Foremost seem to be comparable in quotes and price. Wondering if anyone has any experience with either to recommend.

RE: Pulling a Car behind 38fk Columbus 5’er

I would suggest you check with your Fifth Wheel MFG. to see what towing capacity they recommend behind your Fiver.

Why just install a battery disconnect switch at the battery? I have and use when I tow my Honda Pilot to prevent any discharge while towing. It prevents any discharge. When I disconnect I turn the wheel to reconnect and reset the radio and clock and back in business. Works for me.

RE: Transfer Switch Questions

Just had our 50 Amp Transfer Switch replaced Monday at Onan in Elkhart, IN. Orignal unit was 14 years old and started to have problems. Our Progressive Industries Surge Protector is hard wired in our MH. New Transfer switch was Lyghtpower recommended by Onan. Price for new switch was $257.00 and took 1 hr. to replace. I have always been very confident with Onan and their knowledge and expertise in any thing electrical on my MH.

Quality MH RV Service

I just had Quality service performed at Paul's RV Service & Interiors located @ 66540 St. RD. 19 Wakarusa,IN. 46573. Ph.574-862-6778 Cell 574-209-2980. Paul used to be Service Mgr. At Travel Supreme back in 2003-2005. Then he went to work at Precision Painting in Bremen, IN. as Service Mgr. He recently opened a new operation and continues to offer excellent service. My service was done in a timely manner and to my satisfaction. He has serviced my MH since it went out of warranty and I have never been disappointed.

RE: 5th wheel vs. MH advice

As a couple of OP's have stated if you have done any camping at all with a 5th wheel the more you back one in the easier it is. In fact backing a 5th wheel into a tight camp site is easier with a 5th wheel than a TT. My MH has a 45 degree turning radius and takes less space to backup than a Fiver. As well DP are very expensive to maintain, your pickup take 10 to 12 quarts of oil, a Cummings or Detroit engine takes 30 to 40 quarts of oil My Cummins takes 22 qts. of oil., your filter on a pickup takes a quart maybe two, a DP takes about the same but the filter it's self cost three to four times more. Tires for your pickup may run a $250 per tire for good tires, a DP will run you $400 to $600 or more per tire depend on the band and size of the tire. Yes MH's are more expensive but offer more features than Fivers, Air bags for better ride, air brakes, exhaust brakes for long down hills, 8K Quite Diesel generators, greater fresh water, gray and black tank capacity. My Trans is a Allison 6 speed, towing capacity is 10K with CCC of over 3K. Not to mention in after checking in and disconnecting my dinghy I can pull into my campsite in pouring rain and do not have to get out to setup until the rain to stop as I am fully self contained until it stops. Make no mistakes MH's have a lot of features including ride, etc.for travel if you can afford one.

RE: Leveling jacks question

My suggestion is to read the Manual for you jacks for proper operation. Not all Jacking Systems are the same. I have the Equalizer System on my DP and I am sure your system is not the same operation, as DP's have air bags that figure in leveling the Coach. I would never recommend leaving your front wheels off the ground as it is hard on the front suspension. If the site is that much unlevel I would request a different site, JMO.
