RE: 6 Months RV Trip - Trailer tow van behind RV or buy Dinghy?

I have towed my enclosed 20' car trailer and have not had a problem at any of the R V parks I have stayed at. I do recommend getting a RV Campground Book so you can review the CG you might be interested in staying. An open car trailer either 18 or 20' would surfice based on the length of your van. Another consideration is the towing capacity of the MH you buy. MOST 40' DP's have 10K towing rating. Some CG's have pull through sites that are long enough so you do not need to disconnect the trailer. Being new to driving a MH and towing a trailer you will need to become educated with using a car trailer,loadin and securing the vehicle and general driving the combined unit if you have no previous experience with either.

RE: Ohio state home game

I attended a game years ago with several people from the Pontiac Dealer in Columbus. They had a motorhome that was parked right outside the stadium. It started to rain hard after half time so several of us went to motorhome and watched the rest of the game onTV in the MH. I don't know if they had a special permit or not.

RE: Eternabond Tape on Roof Length-Wise Seam

My Cougar EDPM roof is in good shape with no leaks. To help keep it that way I am planning on getting some 6" Eternabond tape for some preventative medicine. Why 6" vs 4" tape? I used 2" over my seams on my Class A MH.

RE: Rear A/C

I own a 2001 Chevy Suburban 2500 with rear air and have not had any problems with the rear air my only problem currently is with a sensor that is sporadic and causes the compressor to shut off when it gets hot outside. We have not been able to find which one it is with the tester.

RE: Replacement tires

I had Michelin 275/80R/22.5 tires on my 2003 MH that I replaced with 30,202 mileage that were 8+ years based on date of MFG. They had very slight cracking on two at the bead and being approaching 9 years old were due for replacement. Tire wear was never a problem and ride and handling was great. I replaced them with the same Michelin XZA3 tire and now have 54,000 mileage on the MH with no problems and still satisfied with their performance and would buy the same again. I check and maintain the tire pressure and they do not show any abnormal wear for 24,000 miles since installed. I believe you get what you pay for. If other brands are so good why do Mfg. not use them when they build the MH, as they would cost less?

RE: tow dolly towing of 2015 colorado

Neither Tow Dolly Mfg'S or Car Makers recommend towing a vehicle backwards on a Dolly.

RE: Airless tires

I doubt they would have the weight carrying capacity for a tow vehicle.

RE: Sanitizing Fresh Water Tanks - How to with NO gravity fill?

I have a spare water pump I carry and connect it to the inlet to fill my fresh water tank. I put a hose on the inlet side and pump into my tank. I do this to sanitize my tank and to winterize my MH in the Fall pumping in antifreeze into the lines after blowing they out.

RE: must replace gasket on windshield

I would call a auto glass company to do it. They are good at what they do, and won't break the glass. My friend had an auto glass company do his, and it leaked, had them reset it several times, said the glass was cut wrong. Finally found a RV specialist that was familiar with RV who finally fixed it.

RE: Interesting article on tire rack about tire applications

IMO Trailer Mfg. always recommend ST tires only and not LT tires because the sidewalls are not the same.I would suggest to check with your Trailer Mfg. for what they recommend.

RE: Wax?

I have been using Collinite's Insulator Wax #845 for every RV (TT and MH), Auto's, SUV's and custom cars I have owned since 1984. It is the easiest and best wax I have ever used. http://www.collinite.com/automotive-wax/insulator-wax/ I wax my MH with it twice a year and use less than a bottle. I also use it on my 1963 Pontiac Grand Prix and it has the best shine with on swirls or "cobwebs" being a dark blue metallic. It is all by had and does not require a buffer and comes off very easy. Durability is the best of any wax I have ever used. Collinite has many other products, paste wax, etc.

RE: Eternabond vs MFM Peel&Seal

I sealed my roof 4-5 years ago and no sign of any leaks. I also sealed the roof on my enclosed car trailer, easy and don't have to worry about it not working. I believe you get what you pay for. I buy mine from Best Materials http://www.bestmaterials.com/SearchResult.aspx?CategoryID=1021

RE: Entry level have anything to do with quality?

Entry Level means you get what you pay for, don't expect Cadillac quality for Hugo price.

RE: Run generator to charge batteries (how long)

I run my Gen once a month for a min. of 1.5 Hrs. which will bring my House Batts. up to 100%. I also load the Gen by running moe of my Heat Pumps. When I exit the MH I switch off all of my breaker panels and the 12v switch at the door. During storage I also remove the fuse from CO2 and propane detector as they draw current and will discharge the batts. and start beeping when the batts. get low.

RE: 2004 3/4 ton Suburban with the Big Block 8.1

Actually, the small block puts out more HP than the big block. Yes but less torque and lower Max. trailer weight capacity and a 1500(1/2 ton) vs. 2500(3/4 ton) model. Bigger suspension, brakes, tires, etc. If I recall the 6.0L only had a 9,000 towing rating vs. my 12,000 rating. I always felt that torque was a key vs HP in towing. For ex. my Cummins ISC is 350 HP but 1080 ft. Lbs.torque w/Allison 3000MH 6 spd. moving my 29K MH.

RE: Roofs-Fiberglass vs. Rubber/TPO

I have a fiberglass roof that is 12 years old and no leaks or problems. I sealed all seams on the roof a couple of years ago with Eternabond and no leaks or problems. I wash my roof before every trip and when I return. I tried Red Max Pro a floor coating, re coating it every two years and it lasted for about 5 years and then started to flake off. Now it is back to where I started. I originally waxed it by hand, but that grew to be too much work. During that time it sat out in the sun most of the Summer and that is hard on anything. Now when I am not using it I put it into my VersaTube RV shelter.

RE: Dogs rideing in RV

Both of our Bassets are Rescue dogs and travel in their crates, one is a soft crate and the other is a typical large Airline crate. They are very comfortable and secure while traveling, any sudden braking would not cause them to become flying objects and get hurt. They have been crate trained since we adopted them 5 years ago.
