RE: What is the most stressful part of driving your coach?

L.A. Freeways, esp San Diego and I-10 east of Riverside. The fast lane moves @ 75, the # 2 at 70, the # 3 at anywhere from 75 to 80 and the far right is no mans land.

RE: Motorcycle and jeep towing.

My first coach was a used 2002 36 foot Endeavor which the previous owner had outfitted with a lift on the back for his 800# HD. He honestly told me that it did affect the handling to some extent; light front end with some "mushing" feel in the rear. I suspect he was overloading the rear axle. I chose to sell the lift and carried my bike in the back of my pickup. Too old to ride now, so not a problem. In my present coach, a non-tag 40 footer, I think I would be very close to max rear axle rated weight if I hung a bike on the back. Wayne07SCepter-4-sale

RE: I'd like some clarity on the California towing speed limit

Lived in and towed in Calif for 70 years (50 towing) and I just simply run with the trucks. If they slow down, I slow down. Back and forth LA - SF the average speed on I-5 for moho's / trucks towing is 59-61 MPH. Pretty consistant. 59-61 works well for me as that keeps me in top gear. BTW, I am one of those who can't tell the difference in fuel MPG at 55 or at 65. The difference isn't measurable, at least not on short trips i.e. one or two fill ups. Ca. to Co. I travel 62-65 and get the same as when in Ca.@ 59-61

RE: Slide issues

If it were me I would take your $125-150 K and go find a little used pre 2007 38-40 foot coach, maybe a tiffin or a monaco. They are out there, you need to do the leg work, but you will get a substantial coach, better built than many of todays "lightweight" units that are built for a certain price point,lots of glitz but garbage.

RE: 52' Motorhome

In almost any state that I am aware of, anything over 45 feet in a single vehicle is illigal. There are ARTICULATED buses that are 50 + feet, but no one makes an articulated moho except by special order. Wayne07Scepter

RE: Purchasing a new class A

As many have said, buy a little used Diesel Pusher-38-40 feet with at least 2 slides; but you can get 4 for the nearly same price. MAKE SURE that you deal with the owner, that he has all the service records, and he shows pride in ownership. You can tell from just looking at the moho. You can find a 3 to 5 year old coach for around 2/3rds to 1/2 what they originally cost. If you take your time and are willing to travel a bit, you should be able to find ANY brand that you are interested in and most floor plans. YES, it is easier to just go by a new one or a used one off of a lot, but that will cost you money n the long run. Go to CraigsList, put in the area you are close to, and you will be surprised at how many moho's are listed. Buy the biggest you can afford, and you will be glad you did a few years down the road.

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

I have to remove the kitchen faucet every year to scrap the calcium deposits out of a small orifice. I KNOW what you mean, it is a terrible job to get under there to loosen the retaining nuts. HATE ITWTD

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

Re-applied Marine Grease to the toilet seal so it would hold water in the bowl. Yep, I know I can buy a repair kit but the grease lasts for 2 to 3 months of constant use. If I remove the toilet to rejuvinate it and something goes wrong, my DW will kill me if she has to walk to the park johns in the middle of the night.

RE: Does buying that 45' rig do it for you?

IMHO, IF I was a full timer I would have the longest coach available and the nicest one I could afford. That being said, I am not a full timer but do do 150 nights in the desert every year. In one place. So, our 40 footer works out well and I don't have quite as many tires to worry about. Wayne07Scept.

RE: Open Neutral 30 amp service

Sounds like a park power problem to me--did you check the outlet at the pedistal?

RE: Palm Springs, CA RV Park Advise

Happy Traveler is right down town Palm Springs, clean, nice, small. They are open all year but you will not get a spot during the winter. Filled to capacity every year, same people, me included. You can get in after Apr. 1 I would guess

RE: Traveling in cold weather

Often if you have rain or snow, freezing temps, and the slides are out, you will get a freeze on the toppers or the slides . You will not easily be able to put your slides in. So, if you want to leave first thing n the morning, you should clear the ice off the night b-4 and put the slides in for the night.

RE: update on PacBrake

A friend of mine was doing the same "hammer fix" dropped the hammer and it went into the fan--radiator. BE Careful if you try this.! WayneD

"Show stopper" road probems

When I was younger we traveled all over the lower 48 and never gave breakdowns a thought, just fixed them and kept going. Now that I am an old geezer and can't do the stuff I used to do, we are somewhat hesitant to just take off and go where ever. And, mo-ho's are so much more complex now, that finding a competent repair person in The Middle Of No-where is hard to do. So, we stick to traveling fairly close to home and in areas where we know of good RV shops. This has become a bit boring as we would still like to strike out for "parts unknown" What do others do to overcome the fear of break-downs where there is no help available.

RE: spare tires

I think carry'ing a spare tire (only) is a no brainer. You slide it in the middle of a compt. stow small stuff inside / around it, and when you have a tire problem all you need is the tire changing truck. Why get ripped off for the wrong size tire or wait days for the right size? Wayne
