RE: CoachNet - First experience = Awesome!

We had to use Good Sam 3 times on Jan to Mar winter trip and they towed us twice on one breakdown to two different truck repairs. 2nd tow was 140 mi from Gallup to Albuquereque and they paid for it all. They gave us great service! We learned the hard way to be sure the repair facility that you will be towed to has the computer diagnostic equip to trace an engine shut down problem.

RE: Tailgater satellite--pros and cons in various campgrounds

My roof top KVH in motion sat quit working last Jan. KVH said that's too bad it's now obsolete. I used my direct tv dish and tripod for 2 months while in Calif for the winter. Took about 20 min to find signal. I guess I will be looking @ something else that is automatic in the future. I don't want to carry any more than necessary in the MH storage so I guess I will go with a roof top replacement.

Do you suggest I replace water pump ?

I had a heater hose break and lost all coolant on I8 several weeks ago leaving YUMA and am now going to replace all the coolant hoses now that I'm home. Should I be concerned w/ replacing the water pump also. We have 88K miles and 12 yr old MH w/ original pump!

RE: Dometic NDA 1402 ammonia smell

Shut it down, get a cooler and ice and save as much food as youcan and live out of the cooler until you get home.

RE: How long for your air pressure to drop?

Ours dropped over night and we had an air valve replaced and now it stays up for several weeks. Have it fixed!

RE: Towing GMC Acadia or Buick Enclave

I looked at both of these and bought the new Ford Explorer instead. It's big and lighter.

RE: Good Sam roadside assistance

Good Sam towed us twice this winter. Always be sure that you get your rig towed to a repair shop that has the software to diagnose any engine problems w/ the proper software. We didn't the 1st time and had to have a second tow from Gallap to Albuquerque after 5 days and J&J trucking repair shop couldn't fix the problem w/ our cummins engine although they had a cummins sign on the highway. Good Sam was great to cover over $2500 in tow costs!

RE: roof sealing

Dicor on rubber roof. Eternabond on all perimeter seams. EB eliminates any resealing for many years.

RE: Would you replace the Hydraulic hoses?

I subscribed to the theory if it isn't broke don't fix it and we broke down on the Interstate twice on this winters trip!!! Cost $$$$$!!

Would you replace the Hydraulic hoses?

My 02 Dutch Star is getting old obviously. My question is would you replace the Hydraulic hoses (they run the fan and steering),they are the original hoses? I just replaced the heater hoses and my rad hoses are about 3 years old. Am I missing any other hoses that could fail? Just being cautious.

RE: Trans output shaft leaking. Need opinions.

Thanks for all the oopinions. There is no fluid on the ground. I did have the MH parked on a hill (5 degrees) and did get some trans fluid on the ground after prolonged storage but no leakage on the ground when sitting level! Maybe this is what the mechanic is referring t.

Trans output shaft leaking. Need opinions.

A mechanic noticed that my allison trans output shaft seal is leaking but I never have had to add trans oil. Can anyone tell me if this is serious and if it should be fixed right away?

RE: I need a good mechanic in Prescott AZ.

My gas 1996 Safari w/ the chev 454 had problems w/ plug wires being damaged from the hot exhust manifold. A typical problem w/the P30 chassis. I found local repair shops on RVrepairreviews.com.

RE: Do it yourself

I do as many repairs as I can except I also use Speedco for any oil changes as does Dennis! I used to have a local mechanic change my oil and I bought filters from Filterbarn.com. Oil was shell Rotella 15-40 from Wallmart!

RE: Leveling with hydraulic jacks

My instructions say level side to side and then front to back. I never would take the back wheels off the ground since they are the parking brake. Also I never use blocks unless absolutely necessary and then only on the front.

RE: Re roof my 1995 newmar

I had camping world's body repair shop replace the 40' edge cap on my DP and they used an aluminum tape that failed after 2 years and leaked. I removed it and replaced w/ Eternabond that fixed the leak. I have had eternabond on the other 3 roof seams for 5 years and no leaks on those seams!!! I don't know what brand alum tape they used but I only trust eternabond products as many others have on this forum!

RE: Question about overheating coolant!

I don't think the Cummins uses a fan clutch. Thanks for all the input guys I think I can make it to Denver from Sedona before changing the thermostat since I drove from Yuma to Sedona without any overheating.
