RE: Removing personal info from web?

There are many things you can do to "minimize" your private data on the web-internet. 1. Google or use a search engine on your full name and go through the list that comes up and delete whatever you can delete like web posts with your name on it. 2. Only search the web using a service that does not sell your information. I rarely use google. I do use duck duckgo every day. Works well and my searches are private. 3. Clear out your browser caches like history and cookies. 4. Do not use a free email that scans your mail. 5. Go into your settings on your browser and turn off anything that looks like it will invade your privacy. 6. Never post anything on Facebook you don't want the public to know about. 7. Do not use free photo online storage services of anyone who makes money selling ads. 8. Delete old public stuff like Linked In and My Space 9. Never never write anything on the internet that you don't want the public to be able to find. 10. Switch to Apple stuff. Their main business is selling your gadgets, phones, and computers - the hardware. They sell software that works with their devices. In general they encrypt the information that goes on the web. Even things like their message app and mail app. 11. Final comment. I like google and have long used them. But they do scan your stuff. They do save info on you like where you have been every minute of the day 24-7. But they do let you erase it if you want to. If you use google maps and want to erase your location information you can do that easily. 12. I almost forgot. Do get and use ad blocking software on ALL of your stuff, phone, computer, iPad and so on.

RE: How much to paint a 40 foot Class A?

I have had our coach serviced several times at Country Coach in Junction City OR. I have bought parts a bunch of times from them in the last couple of years. Last time I checked most of the people that worked for Ron Lee and Country Coach are still there at the same factory in Junction City. I went to the Winnebago Grand National Rally this past summer. Most of the large coaches made by Winnebago are being made in the old Country Coach factory. We have owned our Country Coach for almost 9 years and have never had any issues getting it serviced either where we live, at the factory, in various other parts of the US. I suppose an argument could be made that CC ceased to exist back around 2000 when they sold out to National. So what is the point of all this discussion? I still have a Country Coach. I like it. Better built than 95% of the new motorhomes built today. Back to paint. We did have some pealing of the clear coat on the top radius of our coach where the outside walls became the roof. We had Country Coach fix it about 3 years ago. I also have some checking in the dark color on a couple of the panels. Unless the sun is hitting it wrong you don't notice it. A friend of mine just had is 34' coach painted in So California about 3 months ago. Very good job. He paid just under 20,000. There are many levels of paint/clear coat quality. To get a high end paint job with several layers of clear coat over it IMHO a 40' coach will run you $30-35,000. Simpler job like my buddy would be in the $25,000 range.

RE: question about batteries

Tim, Most motorhomes have 12 volt DC, a generator, a inverter to convert DC to AC. Even my 1975 motorhome had all three of these. What you can run depends on the size of the batteries, inverter, and generator. My 1975 had one large deep cycle battery an old simple inverter and a 6 kw (6000 watt) gas generator. The refrigerator was a three way so I ran it off of propane when not plugged in. And she had enough inverter power to run a TV or radio or computer. That was about it. Anything more and the genny had to be turned on. Our current rig is 14 years old and is all electric. We have 6 8D (big big) batteries, 2 inverters of 3,000 watts each) and a 12,500 watt diesel genny. You can run pretty much anything except the air conditioners with the inverters. Although if the volts are lower the generator will sometimes kick on if you run the microwave. The watts needed to power the device you want to run will determine how you have to power it.

RE: Your First Class A

Sonny54 - In general you can break down motorhomes into three categories, vacation, snowbird, full time. Full time means you are going to use things a lot and they need to be built to take that level of use. Prices of new motorhomes go up when you go from vacationing to full time, a lot. So do used ones but the climb in price is not so steep. So if you are going to live in it full time make sure you get a rig built to take that use. In general diesel motorhomes either pushers or front motor are built heavier than gas rigs. But these days gas motors go a very long time. You also should consider your use when full time. Are you going to go around the country mostly or are you going to stay in one place for months at a time and then move on. If you are going to move a lot you want something you really like to drive. Many standard truck chassis ride like UPS trucks or worse. Many diesel pushers are quite luxurious when driving. We do not full time, but the motorhome in my signature line would be considered a full time capable rig.
