RE: CRV = PIA

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.

RE: Anyone use Eternabond instead of Dicor?

I used Eternabond about 6 years ago on all of my roof seams and around all of my roof vents,etc.and have not had any leaks. I highly recommend it.

RE: California adds 12 cent gas tax and 20 cent diesel tax

... If, and that's a big if.... the increase in gas tax is used ONLY for highway infrastructure...that will be great and I'm more than willing to pay the increase.:C RonReally, it doesn't matter to California whether you're more than willing or not. If you want gas/diesel you'll pay it. Like it or lump it. :) And that's a fact Jack! However my statement was just meant that "I" personally not only will (due to the fact I don't have a choice as long as I live in California), be willing! That's all folks. Ron IMO the people deserved what they get from the Politicians they elect. I left CA 17 years ago and do not miss all of the taxes and high costs of living there. That is the worst State run by he Democrats who never saw an opportunity for raising more taxes. Just like the High Speed rail they are building and are Millions over budget. No wonder so many Large Corporations that have moved out of State.

RE: Coach batteries

I just purchased four Crown CR220 6V Flooded Batteries that are factory blems, for $85.00 with a 1 year warranty. They retail for $129.00. If you contact the factory you can find a Distributor for your area. They are reported to have thicker plates and from what I have heard from others they lasted 6 years for them . http://www.crownbattery.com/crown-battery-golf-electric-vehicle I am replacing my four Duracell 6V Golf Cart Batteries I purchased from Sam's Club that have only lasted for 2 yrs. 7 mos.

RE: Spare tire on the roof?

My tire weighs 100+ lbs. and I would not try to get it on my roof or get it down. It was heavy enough when I carried it in one of my storage bays.If I decided to take a tire with me I would put it in one of my storage bays where is covered and out of the sun.

RE: Curbside or Streetside Kitchen?

Our kitchen is on the driver's side with the couch behind the drivers seat. We have tile in the kitchen area and carpet in front of the couch. Our table and chairs are on the curbside, our Fridge is towards the rear, with our J Lounge behind the co-pilots seat. Our two windows are very large on the curbside giving us a good view or our site vs.looking at our neighbors site. Our previous TT had the same floor plan with with kitchen on drivers side and booth on the curbside. This is our preference in floor plans.

RE: Dicor Self Leveling or Eternabond Tape

I did my roof with eternabond tape about 5 years ago and have never had any problems since then. I ran the strips the entire length without piecing it. Proper cleaning the roof as directed and it will not come loose. I used a small wallpaper roller to remove any bubbles and seal the edges.Be careful before you put it down as you will not be able to lift it up once it sticks.

RE: CROWN CR-220 6 VOLT 220 AH GC2 DEEP CYC Battery

I used Interstate Batteries in the past and got 3 years and 8 months out them then tried Duracell from Sam's Club and they are 2 years and 4 months and loosing their charge while in storage. Everything is shut of at my Circuit boxes and the main switch at the door and they still are going down to 12.0-12.2 volts. I have located a source for the Crown CR220-6 volt batteries and will try them, based on the good report from Earnest. I maintain the water monthly and when stored for the Winter in my VersaTube shelter I run my generator monthly as recommended by Onan,

RE: 2.5in to 2in Receiver Reducer

A hitch that has a 2.5" receiver is usually a Class V hitch, which is what I have on my Class A Motor home which has a larger weight capacity than a Class IV.

RE: rear air bag suspenson

Your air bags may have weather cracks and leaking. I had to replace both of my rear air bags, plus the coating on the metal drum peeled off and caused it to leak.

RE: Where to park your Tow Dolly?

Adding a hitch to your towed vehicle can be a big help jockeying your dolly around when you need to. X2 I had a hitch on our RAV4 and after unloading the RAV4 would connect the dolly and my wife would tow it to the campsite and park it behind the MH. Worked great for us.

RE: I test drove my first motorhome today - Noisy

I have a 38' Travel Supreme on a Spartan Chassis with a Cummins 350 HP and do not notice any noise going down the Interstate. We listen to the radio and have regular conversations. If it is windy we may hear some of the wind flowing by but not what I would call noisy. I have been in more cars with more noise while driving.
