RE: Mountains on I40 from New Mexico to Las Vegas

Easy travel area. We go that route in early January and late March every year. We will avoid the route if there is snow in the forecast!!

RE: What is the best Tow Bar

I have used Roadmaster for 10 years and it has never failed. My brother had a Blue OX tow bar fail on a Jeep once!

RE: Wrong Pump in AZ

It's obvious that the sticker on the pump can be interpreted by AZ officials to include Diesel RV's over 26K and 3 axel and several have been ticketed for the 1K fine. So isn't it obvious that you would want to fuel at the pumps paying the additional tax unless you want to risk the fine! Is $8 per Hundred gals of fuel going to break the bank?

RE: How long can a DP sit until problems Set-In?

It all depends, we have a 12 yr old MH w/88K mi and have been using it regularly since we bought it. Start up and drive every month to 6 weeks and do all the regular maintenance required. This last year we have had many repair problems to the tune of about 18K $$$ including 2 breakdowns on the interstate last winter. I thought the Diesels were to last to 250k or more miles w/out problems. I was wrong. IMHO, It still beats buying a permanent vacation home w/ similar costs over the same period.

RE: How much weight do you tow? and with how much motor?

We pull 5000# toad and loaded MH thru the rockies all the time. Our 350 ISC cummins will hold 55 if we keep up RPM's and don't lose speed from behind a semi on 6% grades. If we have to slow down it will still climb @ 45MPH using manual shifting to keep up RPM's!!

RE: Advice removing water stains on front curtains

We cleaned ours (pleated) by soaking them in the bath tub using oxy clean. Let them soak for and hour and rubbing them, then took them outside on the driveway and rinsed them off w/ a hose. Let them dry in the sun and then tied them up w/ pleats in place. They came out like new!!

RE: Change coolant from the green to the extended...

Thanks again for all the help! I have ordered (2) gallons of concentrate from O'Reilly's and the rest in 50/50 from Pepboys (Pepboys has a great sale for 25% off internet sales) and I can pick them both up after work. Now to get the water filter with no additive and a new thermostat and new radiator hoses. I'll keep you posted! Don't forget the heater hoses especially the long front to back hoses if you have a DP, I just had mine replaced after a breakdown for a broken heater hose on I-10 near YUMA,AZ!

RE: LP gas leak detector sounding alert.

From some of your previous posts you have a 2000 Fleetwood Southwind. That means your LP Detector is over 14 yrs. old.....they have a shelf life of 5-7 yrs. Typically an expiration date is printed on backside of detector. Get and install a new one. Low battery voltage is the other most common reason that chip. X2

RE: Taking Apart Roadmaster Falcon 2 Tow Bar

I had to use pipe wrenches to take it apart, it's not easy and it did score the nuts but nothing else would work. The score marks are OK since I would rather have a rebuilt tow bar in lieu of not rebuilding it. Mine is 10 yrs old w/60K mi of towing!

RE: Prepping RV roof for caulking

If you have a white roof just clean the area with acetone get some 4' wide Eternabond and it will be the last time you have to do it. X2 on Using Eternabond!!

RE: Why do TPMS systems fail?

67Cutlass: What is a repeater and what does it do? I might consider the TST system since a lot op people have good luck w/them.

RE: Full-Timing...what's your opinion...

We feel the same as you. we like to have stick and brick home to go back too. We use the MH about 3-4 months a year and that is enough for us. My golf buddies and club activities, grandchildren nearby etc. are important to us.

RE: Car towing question..

I have set up two different cars for towing. Both of them had to have some small cut outs in the front grill/fascia to allow the tow bkts to be exposed for connecting too.

RE: fighting the steering

I had steering problems w/ my 31' Safari gasser on P30 chassis. I installed the safety steer device from Camping world. It helped a little. I was driving south down I25 south of Raton NM and a side gust hit me and I was moved from the right lane over to the left shoulder in about 2 seconds. Needless to say I now own a Diesel MH! Good luck w/your fix!
