RE: What did you do to your Class A MH today???

Just got hit by hail storm Tuesday night and now waiting for the insurance adjuster to review the damage. So far I have the following damage: 2 A/C covers, Refer cover, plumb vent covers. both 40ft long alum edge caps, high tail lite, side running lite and some paint chip on drivers side. I bought the roof covers today and will install tomorrow so we can at least take our August trip to Yellowstone and when I come back it will go to the body shop!!

RE: A used Newell, what do you think?

Just remember you will have maintenance costs for any older coach. This past year I have spent close to 17K on maintenance problems on our Dutch Star. It started with a leaking exhaust manifold and went downhill from there. I just had all new heater hoses replaced because one broke on the Interstate on the way home from CA last spring! Have all the running gear checked by a good mechanic before purchasing any older MH. It is money well spent!

RE: American Fuel

Californians will always pay more, in taxes, food, fuel, etc. Just don't go there or live there if you don't like those factors. I am a native Californian and I go there every winter for 3 months, because I still love the state no matter what the cost. Also if you need to worry and analyze every $ spent on your MH you need to find a different way to travel!!!

RE: radiator

I had a Spartan authorized repair center in Denver replace my radiator w/ a new one (in 2009) they ordered from Spartan. Took several weeks to get the job done. Two yeas later a rock hit the rad and put a hole in it and I had a repair shop remove and repair the hole. I recently had a heater hose break and now have replaced all the heater hoses. I feel like I can't get away from heating/cooling problems w/ this Spartan chassis.

RE: Are you scared of the mountains!!

No problem, we have been driving the mountains for about 13 years and mostly go west w/ the MH on yearly trips to CA, WY, OR, NV, AZ, & WA. Just be sure to have you MH in good mechanical condition whatever the age and put the pedal to the metal!

RE: Erosion of rubber fuel and hydraulic lines on older coaches

I just replaced all the heater hoses on my 02 DS. Had one break on I-10 outside of Yuma. The 2 long front to back heater hoses were trapped inside the tubular steel frame rail so they had to go on the outside beneath the floor system. You don't want to pay the price to have one replaced on the side of the Interstate like we did. I also had to replace a hydraulic fan motor and the Tech said my hydraulic hoses look OK so I won't worry about them for now. We have spent $$$$$$$ on maintenance items the past year but we decided we will use this Motorhome until I can't drive anymore.

RE: Class A towing

I towed a Honda Odyssey for eight years and was an easy hook up. We like bigger vehicles for our toad and everyday living so now we tow a 12 Explorer 4WD and love it. I had a SMI brake system on the Honda but now use RVi Brake system because it is a non-invasive system.

RE: Need help with camping near Denver CO please

We think the best campground in Denver is one in Golden off Colfax Rd. We stayed there for 2 months while waiting to get into a new home! Dakota Ridge is a 10* rated resort! You can also visit Downtown Golden, one of the best towns in CO for tourists and the Coors Brewing CO tours!!! PS: Scott and Karla, we stay 2 months in the winter @ Campland Mission Bay and visit your town of Ramona for side trips. Small world.

RE: Flying Jays going Down Hill since Pilot took over

They have definitely raised their prices to be in line w/Pilot,etc. I still like some of their RV pump fuel separation locations vs having to go thru the semi-truck fueling lanes.

RE: Best Place to Purchase Bilstein Shock Absorbers

I just bought 4 from shockwarehouse for my Spartan chassis and they just shipped them after 2 day of the order. They were the best price I could find. $382. Camping World quoted $582. I have a local repair shop lined up to replace them.

RE: WOW What a difference!

I had a 31' safari and put on steer safe, etc. and still had trouble w/wind and semi's. Glad I sold it and bought our Dutch Star DP! Solved those problems.

RE: up grading TV's

I just installed a ultra thin 32" vizio (14#) in my front overhead cabinet. I mounted a 13" ht X 24"w pc of 3/4 plywood about 3" back into the cabinet which gives me a nice face plate to mount the articulating (80# capacity) arm on. I attached the plate to the sides of the cabn't w/1-1/2" alum angle mounted vertically and angled to match the front angle of the cabn't. The bottom of the TV extends back into the opening and rests on the bottom of the cabinet. I keep it from coming out w/ a 3/4" strap and buckle that wraps around the entire cabinet and TV. I am still looking for a better way hold the TV in while traveling.I have a space at the top that I will close w/ some type of black fabric. There is still room inside the cabinet for a sound bar in the future. I was able to connect the new TV to my radio speaker sound system that the old CRT TV could not do. It sounds better and looks great.

RE: Allison 3000 fluid change

I paid $250 to have the fluid changed and new filters @ 50K miles. They used a synthetic "Castrol Max Life ATF" trans fluid.

RE: Montana LLC Re-Visited

I bought my Newmar in 04 and studied the Montana LLC method for tax evasion and decided not to do it and paid the Colorado sales tax and registration for peace of mind. I sleep well @ night.
