RE: Breaking System

RVi Brake system is awesome! I have had SMI but I like a non invasive break system!

RE: Transmission oil change 3 gallons low

I had trans oil and filter changed @ 55K. I had synthetic fluid installed and they said it should last for100K miles. Does that sound right?

RE: What is the most stressful part of driving your coach?

The only time I was stressed was when I crossed a narrow bridge over the columbia river and a semi coming at me started pointing at me to move over and I was already next to the rail. Needless to say he won and I slightly glazed the guard rail and scratched the Motorhome. I was really pissed and needless to say there are a lot of rude and thoughtless semi drivers out there!!

RE: Replacing antenna

We also just had a new roof installed. Replaced the obsolete KVH in motion dish w/ a new Winegard traveler and left the old crank up there which still gives great signals for OTA TV. I might replace the old crank up w/ a newer low mount type unit soon because it can be in the way of the new traveler when it is looking for a signal. The traveler works great w/ our new flat screen TV replacements.

RE: Are Our Tires REALLY that sensitive?

I put 100 - 105" in my 6 tires (w/tire gage readings) and have only had problems as follows: -lost air in a tire while @ daughters driveway. Found a nail and had it repaired. - lost air in a tire while in campground. Found a leak in the extension I added. -lost air in a tire while in storage. Found problem w/ new TPMS sensor leaking & still trying to figure out cause of this problem. I have never weighed the MH and replace tires every 5-6 yrs. On my 3rd set now. My new TPMS system has given me readings as low as 92 psi when cold and up to 122 psi on on tire on this recent 1200 mi winter trip. I have always checked the tire pressures before starting a trip to be sure they are in the 100-105 psi range. The new TPMS seems to read the tires about 6 lbs lower than my gage when cold.

RE: OK to run furnace while traveling?

We ran our furnace from Denver to Sedona late last Dec. It was a colder trip than we normally have taken in Dec.

RE: How Long a Learning Curve Driving a Class A

I started towing boats in the 60's. Didn't take long to learn the class A. I always take extra wide turns even if I have to have someone back up their auto if in the way on right turns. Try to always have the DW in the rear on back ups.

RE: Tire Replacement

I replace my tires @ 6 yrs. A blow out can cost $$$$$ to fix the wheel well. I've seen the damage caused by this. Safety is the primary issue!

RE: Used DP Reliability

I thought our Cummins would last to 250-350K w/out major repairs. I have done all regular required maintenance over the years. Last 18 months have replaced the following: exhaust manifold, new head, high pressure fuel pump. lift pump, fuel lines, turbo charger, hydraulic pump, shocks, muffler, fuel pump sensor @ $$$$$$ cost!!! That doesn't include being hit w/ Hail storm last July and had to replace the entire roof, ac units, etc, and repaint 2 sides of the MH. Just took it in for a diesel inspection and a driver hit the front and now have a new paint job on the front. Murphy's law? We still love RVing and would not quit for anything!!!

RE: Heater door came off on this trip!

RE: Typical Fuel Mileage You Get With Your Gas or Diesel Class A

We get 7-7.5 in Denver to San Diego trip every year. I set cruise @ 65 most of the time.

Heater door came off on this trip!

Pulled in for fuel and noted that my hot water heater door was missing and must have blown off on the interstate. Has anyone had this problem and where did you get a replacement. I'm sure I can call Newmar to get one, but are they a standard size for replacement?

RE: Will pipes freeze camping in 26 deg.weather

We just camped @ 8 degrees and have all the water on. We have basement heating. Run your furnace and check if you have basement heating and you will be OK. We keep the furnace on while traveling during the day so the basement stays heated. Above 38 degrees we use our A/C heat pumps to save propane! Good luck in your travels.

RE: Road side assistance

We had to be towed twice last winter and good sam responded as quick as anyone could expect. the first tow we went to a local shop for repair and after 4 days they could not fix the RV. Then good sam paid again for a second tow of 130 mi. Couldn't ask for more than that!!
