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. ;)

RE: Plumbing

All of my TT's and MH have had the bathroom sink, shower and kitchen sink plumbed to the Gray tank. That is what I would always prefer.

RE: Black Tank Readings Not Possible

I've installed the SeeLevel II external capacitance tank sensors and display system on each Class A we've owned, and found them to be reliable, accurate, and relatively easy to install. The percentage readouts give a much better picture of the tank status than the "Empty, 1/3, 2/3, Full" systems common to the "screw through the wall" sensor systems. X2 We have the SeeLevel system that gives the reading in %filled, i.e 23%, 45%, etc. than you use the tank capacity to determine the gallons in the tank. When my tanks are empty they read 0%. It also gives battery voltage, propane tank reading, fresh water, black and gray tank readings, that are all very accurate. This is the only accurate system to have IMO.

RE: Are you camping at the 2014 NHRA US Nationals?

I don't think it is going to be dry camping as the weather forecast shows scattered or isolated thunder storms Wednesday thru Saturday, with Sunday partly cloudy and Monday mostly Sunny.

RE: tow dolly brakes

I had electric brakes on our Tow dolly because I also tow an enclosed car trailer and had a brake controller for it. One advantage of an electric brake is you can stop any swaying if it were to occur or possibly on slippery conditions, without using the MH brakes. I have had that problem with with TT or Car Trailers under different conditions.

RE: A frames in a Walmart lot ?

Best advice always check with Management of the store, as some Walmarts do not allow overnight parking/camping.

RE: Paint

personally i think the fancy paint and graphics age a coach faster....they fade & go outta style more quickly. No one ever thinks our coach is 10 yrs old. My MH is 11 years old and another MH owner thought it was brand new, still has the original Travel Supreme paint job done by Precision Painting in Bremen, IN. I would not trade it for what looks like a giant refrigerator going down the road, just my opinion.

RE: Fix for non-functioning "dummy" status lights

I have a SeeLeveL II gauge by Garnet Technologies that measures batt. voltage, fresh water, gray water, black water and Propane, with a switch to turn on my water pump. It measures a percentage of the tank capacity, i.e. 42%, 75%, etc. If the tank has a capacity of 100 gals. and it shows 55% than I have 55 gals. in the tank. If the tank is 60 gal. cap and it shows 50% than I have 30 gals. in the tank. Beats the old 4 monitor light system that was usually a wild guess. No sensor lights to foul as the level sensing is on the outside of the tank. http://www.rvgauge.com/products/model_709P3W.shtml

RE: From class A to T. T.

We went from a 32' Avion TT to a 38'Diesel MH and would never go back to a TT. There are so many features and pluses (to list)on a MH for our use that we would never change.

RE: Power Protection..Why So Few Have If Really Needed?

I think price could be an issue. Those surge protectors are upwards of $500. Made me think twice before I bought one That is cheap insurance if you have a low voltage problem or electrical surge that could destroy many electrical products in your Fiver or MH. Mine has save me on several occasions when the voltage was too low, and could have destroyed my heat pump A-C units. I consider it just like a fire extinguisher, having it is better than wishing you had one in a emergency. A friend had a very expensive experience with a wiring problem when plugged in, one time.

RE: Someone help please...Progressive Industries EMS-HW50C

I installed a Progressive Industries EMS-HW50C several years ago and it has saved us with low voltage several times. I also suggest you find a new repairman, as I have not heard of anyone having theirs removed for not working.
