RE: selling at CW

Better check you Insurance, as most do not cover you MH if on a consignment lot and the dealer's Insurance will not cover as he does not own the MH.

RE: 3M Protective Film

I have Diamond Shield and when it was replaced they used a steam gun, not a heat gun. Started from an edge and as heated pulled it horizontal to the surface which would lift the 3M material. Takes patience and in some places the clear coat was lifted requiring re coating, before the new material could be installed. Mine was covered under warranty.

RE: Blue tote wheel mod

My original wheels failed after 20 years and found good replacements at Tractor Supply that have bearings in the metal hubs and not plastic hubs like the O.E.

RE: Who makes the best Ruben Sandwich?

IMO Arby's makes a very good Reuben sandwich and they have stores everywhere. The best is based on a personal opinion and who is going to drive that far to be sure?

RE: what is reasonable profit for the dealer

Thank you all for the replies. I am doing my research, and this is part of it. My question stems from the fact that, after I did my research on a particular model, I made an offer, and was pretty much shown the door. No counter offer, no haggle, very much unlike any negotiating I had done for a car or truck. Since there is no "consumer reports" service available that I am aware of, I just wondered if there was some protocol that I violated in my negotiating. I know the dealer has to make some profit, but it's my money, and I'm kinda attached to it. Buying an Motorhome is not like buying a car or truck, different volume, and RV Mfg. are not like the Auto Industry. It may be your money when buying, but it is the dealer's money tied up in a facility, inventory, overhead, taxes, etc. and he is attached to his money also.

RE: fuel

If you have to ask,you probably can afford one. Like asking a yacht owner how much fuel he burns in an hour. You fill it up and when it get low you fill it again. I have averaged 9 mpg over a total of 44K miles, towing dinghy, tow dolly, enclosed car trailer and 600+ hours on my Diesel Generator.

RE: Max weight for trailer

What would the max travel trailer weight that you would recommend- Maximum towing capacity of 6200 lbs. as recommended for your Durango by the Mfg. and electric brakes which are required in all states for trailers over 2,000 lbs.

RE: setting five months run the engine or not?

Running engines every month seems to me to be an idea especially prevalent in the RV community. There are many thousands of boats both gas and diesel powered sitting on shore in the cold parts of this continent. There is no way they can be started and run every months for 20 minutes under load. They are all fine in the spring. Farmers store all kinds of expensive equipment every winter. Most of it is diesel powered. You can bet they don't take their combine out for a spin once a month. Millions of dollars worth of construction equipment sits all winter. I don't see paving machines out for a tour in Feb. Use the correct storage additive in the fuel. Charge and disconnect the batteries. Come back when you want/need to use the machine again. x2 I do run my gen once a month under a load, which is what Onan recommends.

RE: NADA Pricing

I have no faith in NADA prices, as I question where they get their information. When dealing with a private owner, I would base my offer on the specific unit, condition, equipment, maintenance, etc. and what you are willing to pay. Do you research on what similar units are listed for and go from there.

RE: RV Manufacturer quality ratings

Here you go. Just saw our Damon gets a great rating. Yay! http://www.rv-coach.com/rv/manufacturers/survey/rate_your_rv_results.html Interesting note the fine print says highest score 75 pts so a 60 equals 80% Wonder when this was done - does not have a date on it Check the number of respondents and the ratings of quality MHs *you* know should have many very satisfied owners. Do the same with any RV brand/s you are familiar with - whether it's a 5th or MH. IMO - the poll numbers are WAY, way too low to form any kind of opinion, or a reliable indication of good, bad, or ugly..:S . I find their poll numbers ridiculous. Check Newell,Prevost,Bluebird, and other high end units and compare to standard or lower end MH, etc. Like comparing custom built to high production units.

RE: I'm amazed

When I travel I take one of my DirectTV receivers and connect to my King Dome Satellite receiver, works for me and does not cost any additional as I have three receivers in my home.

RE: ABS Light

It depends on what ABS system you have. Mine takes special software to diagnosis what the problem is, wheel sensor, etc. Usually it is a bad sensor or connection, at least that was my problem.

RE: Need a ride..

Since you just purchased a 2001 Travel Supreme MH, you might want to join the Travel Supreme Owners Forum. https://groups.google.com/forum/#!forum/travelsupreme_5thwheel_rvers

RE: High cost of diesel

Around here it's about .30 to .45 difference. Inconsequential to me considering the extra energy in diesel and it's associated performance. .30-.45 diff? According to Pilot/Flying J stations the lowest in WA. is Ferndale, WA @ $.76 a gal. In Florence,SC. it is $.86 difference and Waddy, KY $.94 difference. South Carolina has one of the lowest fuel tax in the country. The Love's Truck Stop in Dandridge, TN has a $.69 difference. If you can afford a Diesel then you can afford the fuel.

RE: Seat Belts

For those that think nothing can happen while driving on an Interstate, do a search for Jeff Gordon's driver's ed teacher killed in Tennessee crash in his Motorhome. He and his wife were killed when his MH went off I-75 near Jellico, TN Monday. Some traffic was detoured, while some waited on the Interstate to move very slowly. I saw their MH over the bank, probably stopped by tree(s). Don't know time of day that it happened but weather reports previous evening suggested foggy overnight, and that area is known for foggy conditios. Another reason to always wear seatbelts is if a tire blows which can result in a loss of control if you have not had training on how to control.

RE: Saftey Chains on Tow Dolly

Our RAV4 had tie downs on the frame used for shipping that I used for the safety chains.

RE: Onan Generator

Are you sure it is not a Diesel Gen and not a Gas Gen? What model MH? Is your MH gas or diesel?

RE: I'm caught in his jet wash!

It also has to do with the shape of your TT . Get an Airstream and the push pull will disappear. Hogwash, I had an Avion and occasionally still had semi's traveling a faster speed, push me when they passed. A good sway control does help, it would move both the tow vehicle and the TT as one unit. I get the same thing with my MH when a truck is traveling at a greater speed than I am.

RE: backing up your toad

the myth is evident in these replys. Its why I raised the subject. A driver can do anything backwards. Its just the reverse of forward. Professional Drivers (teamsters) do it every day. Watch and learn from them. These manufacturers of tow hitches protect their liability with disclaimers . Backing a 4 wheel down towed behind a MH is no different than backing a trailer behind a truck. See through the smoke and mirrors, disclaimers , realize what you can do. Be that professional driver. Let me suggest you try backing a kids wagon with the handle connected over a trailer ball on the back of a lawn tractor. That is the same as a dinghy attached to a MH. If you can do that for a distance of 10 feet, you might be considered qualified as a driver. ;)
