RE: Gas can

You're overthinking. Unless you need to run a generator all day for some reason, then you might enjoy having the Honda along. In which case you'll need a gas can. But for normal uses, no way. Use the Onan, fill up your fuel tank when needed, and forget it.

RE: Hwy 1 at Pfeiffer Big Sur: bridge failure indefinite closure

We have spent time right in that vicinity. Man, the people just south of the bridge are up the creek without a paddle. News article with stories In fact, this resort says they are closed because the road south is blocked too. http://www.postranchinn.com/important-notice/

RE: Is this a good deal for a used 2016 sun seeker 3050?

You might find that new ones are under $70K. We were at a dealer open house last month, and the new Sunseekers were in the upper 60s. Get a quote from rvdirect.com just to see what the typical low price is for new. (You should then be able to find a dealer in your region who will match it, if you want to buy new.) If the 2016 is built on a 2015 chassis, which is typical, then you will be getting the 5 speed trans instead of the 6 speed which started with the 2016 chassis. For me, I'd definitely want the 6 speed if I was buying almost new. A lot of owners don't like the shift pattern of the 5 speed.

RE: Need ideas for repairing delamination on front of cabover

Andy, if you hung a couple of bags of sand from something solid on the roof or even the rear bumper, and draped them over the slope, do you think they would provide enough pressure? You might estimate this based on how much hand pressure it takes to press the filon down. You don't want to be so extreme that you collapse the darn thing.

RE: Diesel prices - truck stops vs regular gas stations

...and the diesel pumps were just as messy as the truck islands tend to be. Why is it diesel gets spilled all over but not gasoline? One reason is (can be) the dispensing nozzles. If they use high flow nozzles, those lead to more overfills in my experience. And the fill openings are unrestricted. Unlike a gasoline opening that is shielded, which can hold back some of a momentary back-up. So I do think that there is more diesel spilled than gas. Another factor is that a gas spill evaporates within minutes. Diesel is an oil, and it stays there.

RE: Birds

I have had good luck with a rubber snake.

RE: Diesel prices - truck stops vs regular gas stations

The reason is that the truckstop chains have deals in place with trucking companies. Depending on their size and leverage, the trucking companies are paying very little above the truckstop's cost for the fuel. In any case they are not paying anywhere near the posted price. That price is for anyone else who falls into the truck stop and buys diesel. Gas stations OTOH don't have the same kind of customer base, there is usually some local price competition, so they view the diesel price differently. This is based on first hand knowledge of the truck stop industry.

RE: unintended consequences

Has it got roof trusses? If you made the end wall opening taller, is there more clearance available? Do you have bird problems inside it? That's one thing that would deter me from that kind of shelter.

RE: 2017 Winnebago Fuse 23T

The Paseo is a Class B, so it will be a good bit smaller.

RE: Used class c

We were at a dealer open house last month. The brand new Sunseekers were in the mid to upper-60s. I suggest you go to rvdirect.com and request a quote on a new one. Then take 25% off that. Then offer lower.

RE: Horrendous smell and pink water coming out of FW tank

I haven't read all 3 pages. Some tanks don't drain completely. The drain is on the side of the tank rather than the bottom. If that is the case, you'll need to feed a tube down into it and siphon everything out. I bought a used MH with the same problem.

RE: Full Length Queen size beds

It may not be what you are looking for otherwise, but our Sunseeker 2300 has a full length queen bed in the rear corner. Most brands have a similar model.

RE: Ridiculous lack of payload....

In the article, they noted the weight problem, and said they called the factory engineers to discuss it. They were told the factory is working on it. I can't see how they could take enough weight out to make enough difference.

RE: Making a corner queen bed?

I agree with Phil. I think those who won't own another corner bed have valid concerns. But everything in RVs is a tradeoff. We can trade a little bed-making for the benefits of having it all in a short MH. I should have mentioned in my first post, once the bedding is set up, each day consists only of pushing the top sheet and blanket back into place. No tucking anything in, no overlaying with a removable finishing layer, etc. Not hard at all. Crawling over the other person in the middle of the night is a much bigger decision consideration than making the bed, IMO.

RE: Buying a Rental Class C. How many of us out there? (Long)

Thanks Ichabod. All fluids will be replaced since they couldn't produce actual maintenance records only a carfax and a list of what happens in the refurb facility. For those of you with these CA vehicles I have a question. The LED bulbs inside are that AWFUL blue light. Has anyone replaced the LED bulbs inside and what type are they and what's a good place to source them? I want ones with a warmer color. I and many other forum members have had good luck with the warm white bulbs from this vendor on ebay. You do have to wait maybe 3 weeks or so for the slow boat from China. Just enter your bulb base type in the search box. 1156, 921, etc. http://stores.ebay.com/duan-led2010?_rdc=1

RE: Making a corner queen bed?

It's not easy, but no exercise program is! :) Well you start at the foot of the bed reaching what you can. Then crawl on, spreading things out ahead of you as you go. If you can work on your hands and knees for a minute, you can do it. It actually is good for you, unless you have physical problems that prevent it. Whenever I am tempted to complain about some inconvenience of our RV, I remind myself, "we could be sleeping in a tent".

RE: Jayco Grayhawk 29mv vs Forest River Sunseeker 3010ds

We were just at the Pontiac (Illinois) RV dealership open house. I did not pay strict attention to the price postings, but my recollection is that Sunseekers listed as upper 80s MSRP were being offered in the mid to upper 60s. My wife recalls the same. These were white, not full body paint. Models in the 30xx numbers. When we bought ours there, we got 37% off MSRP. MSRP is sort of a fiction in the RV industry, I think. We got our good price by starting at RVdirect.com, getting a price from them. Then asking midwest dealers if they would meet that price. Pontiac RV actually beat it. I think RVD sells Jayco's too, so you can get a price on both Sunseeker and Jayco from them. They have a dealership in Des Moines, so not too bad if you actually buy from them. From your bullet points, I would rate #6, Jayco's cap, as the most important advantage between the two brands. I personally don't think I'd want the tankless heater, but I guess I'd be willing to try one. You didn't mention the roof. Climb up on each and see what you think. Sunseeker is fiberglass, but has the water puddle catching built up seams above the sidewalls. Then it has a separate piece which wraps over the sidewalls. I don't know what Jayco has. If Jayco wraps over the sides in once piece, I would like that better. In our case, I will just make sure to get up and inspect a couple of times a year. This would not keep me from buying another Sunseeker, but still. An extra year of warranty could be nice. Certainly can't hurt.
