quick question

I just got a quote from a guy to remove a couple of trees from a family cemetery and it sounded like robbery. This is not the first time a repairman or contractor has don this. I think when they see a class a sitting in the drive they think "this guy is loaded, lets get him" Has this ever happened to any of you??

RE: Tell me if I'm crazy?

I didn't see how many were traveling with you, are you sure you need a rv that size? I finished a trip similar to yours in that area with a 35ft class A and if you are not used to driving something that big you may want to reconsider. When a big semi roars by you and moves you a half lane over it will thrill you. when you need gas and the only thing available is a mom and pop service station will you be able to get in and out? Even some of the public campgrounds have tight turns. And yes I think you are crazy.

screen door shade

I have a 2014 Itasca sunstar 35F. The shade on the screen door refuses to go up. I have removed it from the door but can't seem to disassemble the %$#@ thing without destroying it. It has no markings anywhere. Can someone help??

RE: Car Tow Dollies

I really don't know what you people mean by "pushing it around the camp ground". In the 7 years I've owned a motorhome I had to un hook 3 times. The words I use are "pull through" works almost every time. When it doesn't I back it in. My DW can pull the toad on the dolly and get her strap on then hook the safety chains while I put my strap on then go tighten her side and off we go. Trust me its not the problem people make it out to be. I can trade toads and not spend a nickel to buy a new plate and have it installed. I don't have to stop and crank the toad every 2 hours to lube the trans, I don't worry about unlocking the steering or running the battery down or hooking up some expensive brake system. Get a Demco with surge brakes and forget it. Even two 70 year olds can handle it.

RE: Need any and all ideas for things to see and do in Michigan

I was really impressed with Mich. and all the things that have been mentioned but they have left out cops and doughnuts and my favorite place the ship wreck museum at white fish point. Hard to believe 6000 known ship wrecks on great lakes. The story of the Big Fitz is worth the visit alone. By the way I'll always remember because my birthday is Nov 10.

any spots left?

leaving for Fl in about 2 weeks, are there any spaces left? Maybe a little north of Tampa. Like around Bushnell.

RE: Advice on tow dolly behind my Class A Gasser

I have a demco that has surge brakes that I've used for 9 years. Current setup is 36ft gasser and 2wd rav4. Buy a demco with surge brakes and be done, Any fwd car and any tow vehicle. Nothing to change no wiring no magic brake setup no fuses to remove no crank and let it run every 2 hours. I just returned from a 45 day trip out west and never had to unhook the dolly. Buy it once and forget it.

RE: bathroom oder

Whatever is used in back bath same as front, no problem there.

bathroom oder

I have a Itasca 35f class a that has the 2 bathrooms. The bath that is mid coach has a urine smell that we cant get rid of. This smell floats up through the cabin and is also in the compartment where the valve and macerator are located. I can find no leaks and have replaced the vent cap. I cant believe this is coming from the tank as it is not a black tank smell. Am I the only one with this floor plan that has this problem? Any intelligent suggestions appreciated.

RE: something was wrong

OP Update, was nothing left to do but hit the road. We headed west up and over Wolf Creek Pass 10800ft. She went up like a champ and topped out at 30 mph In 3rd gear. Put it in tow haul and went down the other side the same way, 30mph in 3rd gear Always go down a hill in the same gear you came up.

something was wrong

Was coming through Colorado 160 today and suddenly my 2013 ford f 53 would not pull motor revved trans shifted but would not do over 50mph. Motor noise was tremendous, gauges read perfect just would not go. Pulled over half way up mountain and went through Ford manual, nothing. Got back on the road and same thing for 1/2 mile the just as if you had flipped a switch motor quieted down and she took off like jack the bear. Any Ideas??

RE: Looking for NASCAR location for Class A

Martinsville for sure but since its a half mile you may not get a spot next to the track. People pull there units in line as much as a week before the race. I'd call first. I think all the others are infeld.

RE: Ford Gas Chassis for 38 footers ?

Hey devocamper Take this for what it is, I have a 2014 Itasca 35F on a ford f53 chassis the only suspension change is the cheap handling fix. Do a search on here and you will find it. I tow a yota rav 4 on a demco dolly and it hit 26250mi headed across Kansas this morning. Never had a problem gassing up just drive on the top half of the tank then start looking for a place you will fit. One rule, look for your exit before you enter. Most truck stops will have room at the gas pumps. Had to unhook one time in 9 years and over 70,000 miles. Get s floor plan that makes momma happy and travel on!!!
