RE: NAPA Air Filters

Here's a thought....FilterBarn.com. I've been using them for all my filter needs (MH wise) for year's now. They even carry Napa, CAT, Baldwin, Fram, Donaldson etc etc. X2

RE: air compressors

I carry a Pancake 5 gallon 150 psi compressor with me. I've got the onboard, but it takes to long. X2 You can pick one up at Lowe's. X2 works for me!

RE: Spare Tire

Ive been Motorhoming for about 30 yrs and never have carried a spare tire and never had a tire problem on the road. We carry Good Sam road coverage and have used them for towing only.

RE: Will getting a larger roof A/C solve the problem?

I replaced my 13500 (2002) with new 15000 units and it made a major difference. They are lower profile and w/ a new thermostat makes a much better A/C situation in our 02 Dutch star.

RE: New 06' Executive Owners... Ride Home

I would replace the engine air filter, ck/water hoses and radiator hose condition. No fun if one breaks on the interstate.

Opinions on Travel Assist Insurance

Does anyone use Travel Assist Insurance and/or is there any other way to get your Diesel Pusher driven home if you have a physical problem on the road and can't drive it? My DW Can't drive our 40" DP.

RE: Replace tires?

the only thing that matters is your peace of mind. if it were me I'd replace them simply because I have no way of knowing how the tires were cared for, stored, etc. if you're of a like mind and if it gives you peace of mind to replace them then replace them regardless of the opinions you'll receive here.

RE: Diesel push HP recommendation

When we picked up the IKON in AZ we took the southern route through the mountains to Cali. it pretty much made a joke of the mountains. Poor semis where in the crawl lane and you could count the tire revolutions, we went over the top holding 60 easily. We hauled two sprintcars in a 32ft stacker trailer behind it and could roll 75-85 all day long. So yes shes a brute but way too much machine for our use now. You really can't compare an RV to a semi truck combo, they could weigh 80,000 lbs. going up the same hill that you are climbing weighing 50,000 lbs. I know the hill in Southern, CA, that you are talking about (the 8 freeway)...we would probably go up at about 40-45 mph pulling a towed at best. On a flat freeway, we could cruise at 75 mph all day long with power to spare. The speed limit in CA is 55 mph max when towing. I like to travel at 55-60 or 65 when the speed limit is 70+. X2 MM.

RE: Reliability in purchasing older diesel A

I have 105K mi on my DSDP and it has had major work over the years and regular maintenance. To list a few items we have done since about 85K miles: 1. new roof and upgraded A/C to 15000 btu & repainted 2 sides due to hail damage in Colorado 2. new shocks 3. Complete dash air overhaul. 4. new muffler 5. new hydraulic pump motor 6. new lift pump 7. new heater hoses including front to back hoses 8. 6-new Mich tires last month 9. new high pressure fuel pump & lines 10. new turbo charger 11. new exhaust manifold 12 new head 13 new radiator in 08 w/ hoses As you can tell we maintain our coach & it should be good for another 100K miles, but who knows what will happen next. PM me if interested, were going to sell ours next year!

RE: rv gas mileage

if you have to worry about gas mileage you probably need a different hobby. neither one will win a economy race. it is more about how the driver uses the pedal and wind/terrain. at the end of a trip will $10.or $20. really make a difference? get the one you like and enjoy it. X2 We average 7.5 pulling a 4800# toad. Wind direction, mountains and speed all have to enter the equation. I set my cruise control on 65 about 75% of the time on the interstates. I had a 31 ft gas safari that only got 5.5 to 6.5 mpg. It had the p30 chassis and 454 chevy engine...

RE: Flying out tomorrow. Do you remember picking up your Rig?

I flew to Maine (from Colorado) to pickup my DS in 04. It was 2 yrs old w/ warranty. I had a problem on the Ohio Turnpike broke the right mirror off hitting a post on a pay toll. Had a shifting pattern in Indianapolis and had to leave it w/ Spartan. Flew home and went back and picked it up a week later. I called it a trip from hell. But love the DS and am still driving it after 100K miles and 30K of repairs later.

RE: Switching to 4-flat towing

My brother had. a blue ox break on the San Francisco bay bridge, not a good experience. I have used Roadmaster on 2 cars and about 70K miles. It has never let me down. Have had a SMI brake and now a RVi brake. I prefer a non-evasive breaking system. Easy to use and easy to connect and disconnect.

RE: TPMS shows different pressure than pressure gauge

I have a TST TPMS w/ 10 sensors and the never read the same as the tire actual Tire pressure gage. That's OK as long as they always read about the same when tires are cool in the AM. I have one tire extender that causes a loss of about 1psi a month. Very aggravating to have to deal w/ this problem. I just recently bought new tires and that tire was flat the next day in storage. This is my 2nd TPMS system. I'm very frustrated w/ TPMS systems & am considering to eliminate it altogether.

4 down towing parts

I used to have a web site that you can list and sell used rv tow bars, brakes, towing equipment, etc. Does anyone know of such a web site. I can't remember, so what else is new.LOL

RE: Life span of typical roof air unit

Mine original A/C units were 13500 but would not cool the MH very well in 100 plus degree climate. Now I have 2-15000 btu units and they work much better in 100 plus climate.

RE: tow dolly vs. Tow bar

We've been 4 down towing for a long time; It's the most convenient. 8 yrs w/ a 2004 Honda Odyssey and 5 years presently w/ our 2012 Explorer. The only problem I've had is car battery going down on long day trips so I just charge battery at end of the day.

RE: Looking for advice on Used DP
