RE: Traveling in cold weather

We travel in Jan out of Denver area every year and sometimes get into 10 degrees weather but by keeping the heaters on and all the other things to do as stated by many folks above it is no problem. Go and enjoy your winter trip.

RE: Bleed off Air Tanks (water)

I had lanyards installed 2 years ago since the coach didn't have any originally. I dump the air tanks on a regular basis. The tanks don't seam to collect much water and that is a good thing. If you get/live in freezing conditions and have water in the lines that freezes up you will possibly lose your brakes!

RE: RV parks NO motorhomes over 10 years?

RE: Steering Stabilizer

I'm looking at installing a Roadmaster steering stabilizer on my 2014 Ford F 53 class A motorhome (since I've tried everything else) to hopefully eliminate the steering wander. My question is from the people that have installed a steering stabilizer of any brand. Do they work or am I wasting my money? Thanks Roy I installed a safe-t-steer on a 31' safari gasser and was traveling down I25 and got hit by a side wind gust and in 2 seconds it blew me from the right lane to left shoulder. That's why I changed to a Diesel Pusher!

Replaced 13500 A/C's w/ 15500 A/C's

We are replacing our 2002 A/C units w/ new 15500 units after having them damaged in a Hail storm several months ago. The 13500's did not do a very good job of cooling the MH in over 100 degree temps. I will be picking up the MH this week after 6 weeks of hail damage repairs. Those who have 15500 units, do they cool your MH reasonably well in high temps?

RE: Smog check - Where do you go?

What's interesting, when we were in San Diego we had to renew our tags and I was told by the DMV that they don't test diesel MH's in CA. Here in Denver we pay $90 and a yearly check is required on our 02 DP and we don't have anywhere near the smog problems that California has! I don't know what the gasser's cost here, but $70 sounds reasonable.

RE: Secure internet access?

We use the VERIZON MIFI 2200 plan for 3GB data that creates a secured WIFI HOT SPOT for up to five wifi enabled devices. VERIZON seems to be the best coverage for us all over the US. This MIFI unit works anywhere you pick the Verizon cell phone signals. http://cdn.ubergizmo.com/photos/2009/5/mifi-2200.jpg height=200 I was always very Leary using the HOT SPOTS scattered all over various places but alot of folks do just that.. My VERIZON MIFI device sits in a WILSON SLEEK Cradle which has an external antenna that really boosts the signal for us. http://www.antennagear.net/images/InitialSet/MiFiHS-1.jpg height=200 Roy Ken Verizon has the best coverage thru out the southwest. We have been using this system and their phones for about 12 years!

RE: Generator Hours

Ours has 1500 hrs. Coach has 89K miles. Runs great if I keep the fuel filter maintained. I also run mine at least every 1-2 months during the year!

RE: new to DP and question regarding charging batteries

I have lived w/30 amp for 2 months in the winter, I only run one a/c w/heat pump at a time. At home I use a 20 amp and can run one A/C only. My ac's take about 15 amps/ea for the compressor to kick in. So you can see why you need 50 amp for both to run at the same time.

RE: Is 360 hp enough for for 38-40 ft class A

My 350 Cummins pulls a 4800# toad and I don't even feel it. I go over the rockies all the time and if that is not a test nothing is!!!

RE: Hwy 1 in Ca

I've been on that route w/auto & I wouldn't do it w/ my MH!

Need ideas on replacing crank up antennae!

I just had a Winegard Traveler installed on my Dutch Star. The old crank up antennae can't be used at the same time as the Traveler dish since it can be hit by the Traveler. I need a 10" or lower antennae in place of the crank up for over the air TV. Has anyone faced this problem and any suggestions on a replacement antennae!

RE: Head Light Lens Fogged Up

I had to replace mine since they would not clear up w/ the lens cleaner/polishing method. The inside of the lens was also clouded from aging!!!

RE: Shock Absorbers

I replaced the shocks on my 31" Safari gasser w/Bilsteins and also just replaced the DP w/ OEM Bilsteins. I am happy w/ the ride & I don't think I would notice that much difference w/ Koni's or Monroes!!

RE: labor cost of Cummins ISL replacement

The diesels are not perfect engines by any means. In the last year I have spent $$$$$$$ on my engine for repairs. Had the exhaust manifold replaced, new turbo charger, new head, new fuel pump, new fuel lines was the first problem. Then the engine shut down on our last winter trip on I40 and had a nightmare of a time trying to get that problem solved. I have 89K on the MH so the 300-400K mi engine didn't quite last that long without major repairs. I was told to R&R a rebuild engine could cost about 30K at that time but at least I didn't have to do that. By the way I have kept up with all the required maintenance on this MH.

RE: Winter Storage Questions

I take our DP out for drives (10-20 mi)every 4-6 weeks to keep all the seals, etc lubricated. Been doing it for 12 years and don't have any problems.

RE: Pulling I-40

It's and easy ride. We use that route every January!!

RE: Denver to Utah in January ??

We live in Golden, CO and leave when it gets cold. I'm not much for traveling in the MH when there is possible snow or ice. I use I-25 in the winter, not interested in going over the passes on I-70. Been there done that! I guess you can call us snowbirds now!

RE: Flagstaff

AZ has been super friendly to us over the years. I have camped in Flagstaff and never a problem.
