Dry Cleaning Fiberglass Roof

The June 2015 issue of MotorHome magazine has an interesting article Dry Cleaning a fiberglass roof with waterless product. http://washwax.com/waterless-wash-products/ It sounds interesting. Has anyone tried this product and what is your opinion of it?

RE: Floor wax on motorhome

Do a search for 'Red Max Pro'. A lot of people like it. I started using Red Max Pro about 4-6 years ago and would re coat it every other year. Last year it started to flake off and now I will have to strip it and either start over of use something else. It looked great the first couple of years on my roof. The June issue of Motorhome has an interesting article "Dry Cleaning" your fiberglass roof. A product evaluation of Wash Wax All. It sounds interesting.

RE: Backing up with toad

I only had to unhook once, when I came to a railroad trestle that was 10' at a 90 degree to the two lane road and I was 12'3". I unhooked and found a driveway I could back into and turn around and my wife followed me to another route to the CG, that was only a few miles away. There were no road signs advising of a low trestle(low bridge with height). CG owner had complained to the State several times about this.

RE: Do you travel with your interior doors open or shut

We have a sliding door that we close and latch. Our bathroom door is closed. When it is very hot outside the heat in the bedroom will heat up the front of the MH, thus we keep it closed. We also run the gen when the outside temps. reach 80 degrees plus as our dogs in crates get warm and the dash AC will not keep the kitchen area cool enough so run the front Heat Pump on AC, works best for us.

RE: How do I level a dual axle trailer???

I carried one 2x8x6' and several 12" pcs. of 2x4's and 1-2 pcs. of 4x4's and elevated one end to make a ramp either backed on to elevate or pull forward to elevate the trailer then blocked the wheels on the ramp. Easier than making two small ramps for both wheels, IMO. It took me less than 5 min. to set up the ramp.

RE: Long term reliability of GM 8.1 Liter

I have the 8.1L in my 2001 Chevy 2500 Suburban but only have 50K mileage on it and have had great reliability with no problems. I bought it from the original owner that had it for 1 year and used it to tow a horse trailer putting 25K in one year. I used it primarily to tow my 32' Avion and my 20' enclosed car trailer with my 63 Grand Prix and no problems to date with the engine. It is much better than the 7.4L I had before.

RE: Towing a Prius

Have you checked in the Owners Manual for towing?

RE: front cap after red max pro (zep)

I used the Red Max about 5 years and have re coated it three times and last year it started to peel/flake off so will have to remove it and try coating again. I believe with so many coats the sun has caused it to begin to flake.

RE: tow dolly

I preferred the electric brakes as I have an enclosed car trailer with electric brakes and can control the brakes from my cockpit.

RE: Eternabond roof seal tape

I installed Eternabond tape back in May 2011 and have not had any problems with deterioration or coming loose. I purchased 2" x 50' in White from http://www.bestmaterials.com/detail.aspx?ID=15115 I also used Gray on the top of the crown on my roof. Used it around all vents, skylight, pipe vents, etc. I would recommend it to anyone. Be sure you stick it down where you want it as it is almost impossible to take it up.

RE: Hill Climbing

Based on my tour of the Allison plant and the Q&A I will let the transmisson do the shifting as programmed as the tour guide suggested. If you choose read the manual if have a different opinion JMO.

RE: consignment

I suggest you check with your Insurance Co. about selling at a consignment lot as some carriers do not cover any damage if it occurs. And Dealers insurance will not cover as they do not own the RV that is on their lot.

RE: New DP Owner. Maintenance Budget Question

I recommend you review your maintenance schedule for your chassis and engine. I purchase most of my filters fron NAPA, as they have specials every Sept. I have my service done at a local shop that does service on HD trucks and buses and familiar with those systems. I typically spend approx. $230 plus cost of filters, which varies each year.

RE: powere winders for water hose and electric cord

Mine came standard on my MH and I would not be without them. The 50 amp power cord is a bear to deal with if you have to manual handle IMO.

RE: Are We Allowed to have a gun in an RV for protection?

Is it legal to carry a firearm in an RV. I am not paranoid, but I like to be prepared. There is a difference between transporting a firearm in a vehicle/RV and carrying a firearm be it during travel or outside you RV. Federal Laws specify how to transport firearms while traveling in a motor vehicle/RV. State laws apply to carrying firearms on your person either concealed or open carry and vary by State. The NRA has much information on their website, joining will provide much information to your benefit. I recommend you seek training with any firearm you choose and educate yourself on the laws on when you can use deadly force to protect yourself. I would also recommend anyone that carries a firearm to have an Umbrella Insurance policy for liability if you shoot someone, as you may be sued. Having and using a firearm requires a lot of responsibility.

RE: Waxing MH - Avoid decals?

I have been using Collinite's #845 Insulator Wax for over 20 years on every vehicle or RV I have owned. www.collinite.com That includes 3 TT's, Classic cars, etc. I wax our MH twice a year by hand do not need a buffer and it still looks like new. My wife's 1996 RAV4 has over a 100K and still shines like new. Best wax I have ever used and the easiest to use.

RE: What is your toad of choice?

Our 2004 Honda Pilot 4wd. Been towing it for 5 years with no problems. When I go to car shows I take my 1963 Grand Prix in my enclosed car trailer.

RE: Gen Sets that auto start and stop

I installed a Onan Energy Command EC-30W several years ago to my Onan 8K gen. Installation was easy. Do a search and you can find the price and all details about it.

RE: Tire Life

Most Tire Mfg. recommend replacing them when 7-8 years from mfg. Michelin recommends at max. of 9 years. You can take a chance and go longer if you feel lucky, but if you blow a tire the damage will be considerably more expensive than the total costs if had replaced them before one blew. So do you feel Lucky?
