RE: Dometic 2652 stops cooling after 4 days

Not out of level.

Dometic 2652 stops cooling after 4 days

My friend has 2000 Class C RV with the original Dometic 2652 refrigerator. When he first turns it on, on either 120 or Propane it cools just fine, but after 4 to five days it stops cooling. The fridge is still getting power, and the gas is on, but will not cool again until he leaves it off for a few days. Has anyone ever had a problem like this? Thanks

Itasca Meridian 39K with Cummins 6.7

I am getting close to purchasing a very nice 2008 Itasca Meridian model 39K with the 6.7 liter Cummins engine with 45,000 miles on it. Can anyone comment as to whether this will have adequate power to tow my 4000 pound jeep through the mountains out west? Thanks in advance

RE: Tire life

I'm th OP on this thread. Thanks for the comments. I think I'll take it in a 100 mile shake down trip and then replace the belts, shocks, tires and have all the hoses checked before heading out on an extended trip out west. I also have to change my signature to say Winnebago Journey Diesel. Thanks again.

Tire life

Is there any consesus on how soon you replace tires on a motorhome? I'm about to purchase a motorhome with tires dated 3811. I think I should replace them even though they look like new, just to be safe. Anybody disagree?

Checking for flood damage

I am in the process of purchasing a used 2004 Winnebago Journey. The motorhome has low miles and is in beautiful condition. Today I ran a Carfax on it and found that its original owner lived in Gautier, Mississippi (on the Gulf Coast), which was ravaged by Hurricane Katrina. The carpet, cargo bays, undercarriage, etc. are all extremely clean and rust free. There are no smells or evidence of leaks or water damage, but I'm thinking I should run away from this deal. It has had 4 owners. The original owner moved to Alabama and kept it for 4 years after Katrina. It has had 2 owners since. There are no reports of any damage on the report, just a note indicating that it was In a county that was declared a flood disaster area. I looked at the location (Gautier, Mississippi)on Google Earth, and looked at pictures on Google of the town it was in, and the damage there was horrible. Any thoughts?

RE: 2005 Monaco Dynasty vs 2007 Fleetwood Discovery

Thanks for your feedback. I'm more concerned with the potential for trouble ahead with the house portion. I'm also wondering about the longevity of all the long hoses for power steering, heater hoses, a/c hoses, etc. Thanks again

2005 Monaco Dynasty vs 2007 Fleetwood Discovery

I'm looking at 2 motorhomes that I like. One is a very nice 43 foot 2005 Monaco Dynasty with 85000 miles for $105000 and the other is a 2007 Fleetwood Discovery 39V with 34000 miles for $83000. Both are in excellent condition, but I'm reluctant to spend $100000 on the Monaco with that many miles. Any advice?

Fleetwood 39V Diesel

I'm considering purchasing a 2006 Fleetwood Discovery 39V diesel. The other day I came across something that said most single rear axle diesel pushers were loaded almost to capacity on the rear axel, as delivered from the factory. Does anyone have any experience with this model, who could offer some advice? Thank you

RE: Wind and road noise in late model class A gas?

I have owned 3 early 2000s gas class A units. One was a Newmar gas Dutch Star and the other two were Fleetwood Southwinds, all with Ford V10 drivetrains. I have also test driven several other brands of higher end gas class A units with the GM drive train. They all had similar engine and road noise, with the Fords being the loudest. Are the post 2013 models, for example, any quieter, as a whole, than the 10-14 year old models? Simple question.

Wind and road noise in late model class A gas?

I have a 2004 Southwind Class A gas and I'm considering buying either a late model class A gas or an older diesel pusher. I wonder if the newer units are any quieter on the road than the 10 to 15 year old class A gas units. Any comments would be appreciated.

RE: Route 90 through Cleveland

Matt, I just followed the route you suggested on Google Earth. I think I'll take that route. Thanks much. :)

RE: Route 90 through Cleveland

Yes, we went to Watkins Glen state park a few years ago and we are going back. The waterfalls there are beautiful!

RE: Route 90 through Cleveland

Thank you for your advice. I guess I'll just keep away from rush hour and bite the bullet and go through Cleveland.

Route 90 through Cleveland

We are leaving on a trip from Detroit, Michigan to Watkins Glen, NY on Tuesday. The GPS is directing me to take Rt. 90 through Cleveland. It has been several years since I went that way, but as I recall there were signs on the freeway as we approached the Cleveland vicinity directing trucks to follow a "Truck Route". To be safe, in case of low bridges, etc., we took that route and it took us right through the heart of downtown Cleveland. I hate driving the motor home in downtown traffic. Does anyone know if there is an alternate way to get through there without going through downtown? Maybe things have changed, or maybe I was lost, but I'd rather not go through there if I can avoid it without going way out of the way. We are driving a 36' class A towing a car. Thank you ahead in advance for any advice.

It has the Ford chassis.

RE: Class C vs Class A gas driving comfort

When we had our class C years ago I once drive 700 miles in a day. Driving our class A wears me out after about 300 miles. I'm 70 years old now. Perhaps it's my age and not the type of motorhome I'm driving that wears me out? Someone mentioned tire noise. The tire noise in ours on concrete is loud enough to be really annoying. I have 2 year old Goodyear G670s on it, inflated to 85 pounds, based on it's measured weight. Thanks for the input so far. I'd still like to hear more opinions of the driving comfort in Class C vs Class A. The engine noise is a little obtrusive when climbing grades, but otherwise not a factor.
