RE: Allied Insurance

Sounds like you may have been at fault, you hit him. He didn't hit you. You are suppose to be able to control your vehicle at all times. Just my opinion.

RE: Removing the plastic shield from Motor Home

Removing the plastic shield from Motor Home

Don't think I have ever read on here. Has any one ever tried a pressure washer to remove that plastic shield?? I do know that a son-in-law tried to pressure wash their coach one time and he washed part of a decal off before he realized it. But our coach is full body paint. I'm thinking about trying it. Any one got any good or bad news about trying a pressure washer.??

Subject: Truisms for Pilots

Subject: Truisms for Pilots No matter what else happens, fly the airplane. Forget all that stuff about thrust and drag, lift and gravity; an airplane flies because of money. It's better to be down here wishing you were up there, than up there wishing you were down here. If you're ever faced with a forced landing at night, turn on the landing lights to see the landing area. If you don't like what you see, turn them back off. A check ride ought to be like a skirt, short enough to be interesting but still be long enough to cover everything. Speed is life, altitude is life insurance. No one has ever collided with the sky. Always remember you fly an airplane with your head, not your hands. Never let an airplane take you somewhere your brain didn't get to five minutes earlier. Don't drop the aircraft in order to fly the microphone. An airplane flies because of a principle discovered by Bernoulli, not Marconi. "Unskilled" pilots are always found in the wreckage with their hand around the microphone. If you push the stick forward, the houses get bigger; if you pull the stick back, they get smaller. (Unless you keep pulling the stick back-then they get bigger again.) Hovering is for pilots who love to fly but have no place to go. The only time you have too much fuel is when you're on fire. Flying is the second greatest thrill known to man. Landing is the first! Everyone already knows the definition of a 'good' landing is one from which you can walk away. But very few know the definition of a 'great' landing. It's one after which you can use the airframe another time. The probability of survival is equal to the angle of arrival. IFR: I Follow Roads. You know you've landed with the wheels up when it takes full power to taxi. Those who hoot with the owls by night, should not fly with the eagles by day. A helicopter is a collection of rotating parts going round and round and reciprocating parts going up and down - all of them trying to become random in motion. Helicopters can't really fly - they're just so ugly that the earth immediately repels them. Pilots believe in clean living. They never drink whiskey from a dirty glass. Things which do you no good in aviation: Altitude above you. Runways behind you. Fuel in the truck. Half a second ago. Approach plates in the car. The airspeed you don't have. If God meant man to fly, He'd have given him more money. What's the difference between God and fighter pilots? God doesn't think he's a fighter pilot. Flying is not dangerous; crashing is dangerous. A good simulator check ride is like successful surgery on a corpse. Asking what a pilot thinks about the FAA is like asking a tree what it thinks about dogs. Trust your captain but keep your seat belt securely fastened. An airplane may disappoint a good pilot, but it won't surprise him. Any pilot who relies on a terminal forecast can be sold the Brooklyn Bridge . If he relies on winds-aloft reports he can be sold Niagara Falls. The friendliest flight attendants are those on the trip home. Good judgment comes from experience and experience comes from bad judgment. Being an airline pilot would be great if you didn't have to go on all those trips. Aviation is not so much a profession as it is a disease. The nicer an airplane looks, the better it flies. There are three simple rules for making a smooth landing. Unfortunately, no one knows what they are. It's a good landing if you can still get the doors open. Passengers prefer old captains and young flight attendants. The only thing worse than a captain who never flew as copilot is a copilot who once was a captain. It's best to keep the pointed end going forward as much as possible. If an earthquake suddenly opened a fissure in a runway that caused an accident, the FAA would find a way to blame it on pilot error. Any attempt to stretch fuel is guaranteed to increase headwind. A thunderstorm is never as bad on the inside as it appears on the outside. It's worse. It's easy to make a small fortune in aviation. You start with a large fortune. A male pilot is a confused soul who talks about women when he's flying, and about flying when he's with a woman. A fool and his money are soon flying more airplane than he can handle. The last thing every pilot does before leaving the aircraft after making a gear up landing is to put the gear selection lever in the 'down' position. Try to keep the number of your landings equal to the number of your takeoffs. Takeoffs are optional. Landings are mandatory. You cannot propel yourself forward by patting yourself on the back.

RE: 06 Winnegago, protective film on vehicle when purcnased.

Our coach sits facing the sun every morning till about noon. All it has done is make that film crack more. I can't find any one that will take it off . They don't even want the job. They all told me it would have to be repainted.

RE: slide out operation

My Winnebago Adventurer will start and can be driven with the slides out. The reason I know I was in Cheyenne, WY. one time and the bedroom slide would not go in. I drove right thru town too the repair place with the slide out. I just had to be careful and watch where I was going.

RE: Monaco or similar. Have you swapped out Dinette for a booth?

RE: Floor tile sliding

The 1998 Winnebago coach I had did that. Don't think it moved as far as yours. I was able to apply pressure with my foot and move it back into position but it just slid again. I believe you are correct that it is peel and stick. Don't think there is a good solution other than pull it up, clean off the adhesive on the floor and put down new floor covering. It must be something that just happens to Winnebago. That's what we have is a Winnebago Adventurer.

Floor tile sliding

Any one having trouble with the floor tile sliding in their Motor Home? I noticed mine is sliding from under the kitchen sink cabinet all the way to the entrance steps about a half inch so far. Of course that tile looks to be that peel and stick stuff. I guess I applied the brakes to hard and it all slid forward.Of course the coach is 10 years old, we have had it since it was brand new in 2006.

RE: NEVER call for a tire- RIP OFF

I still don't understand anyone buying from these roadside assistance organizations. I get it from my insurance company at a fraction of the cost. It covers all my vehicles, including RV, and it's worked great the one time I needed it. I also have it with my car insurance (Farmers) but they won't cover the Motor Home.

dash Radio in MH

Do they just put cheap radio's in RV's or am I just unlucky. The MH I had about 10 years ago, the dash radio went bad. The dial light went bad. So I had to replace the radio. Now, this coach I bought new in 06. The dash radio , the on off switch has gone bad. It is a push button is an on/off volume all in one switch. It won't turn it on or off. The volume still works. I can turn it on and off with the remote. Radio repair shops are very hard to find and the one I did find said it's cheaper to replace the radio. The problem is I can't find a radio to fit in the same place as the old one. Any one got any ideas ?? Thanks

RE: Is 70 the age to stop towing

I guess at age 70 you should stop towing any thing behind the Motor Home. Man I'm 13 years to late to find this out. I'm 83 closing in on 84, I still tow the Jeep back there.

RE: How to determine if roof can hold a/c unit

If you have a vent up where you are going to put the AC I bet your good. My brother in-law added one to his Winnebago. Because his basement air did not keep them cool. His pretty much sits right over where the vent was.

RE: JC Penny - list of store closures

Our J C Penny in Wichita Falls Texas has been here since 1917. It said in this morning paper it will still stay open.

RE: Is a Dutch Star better

I don't know much about a Dutch Star. but I would like to make a comment about the Brand new Dutch Star My son-in-law bought back in about April of this year (2016) He bought it at a place in Denver. It is a 41 footer with tag axle. First long trip was to Washington state. He broke down twice while in Montana. First was Billings as it overheated, there was a piece of plastic that had not been removed some where close to the side radiator. Left there after a couple hours it over heated again in Bozeman , this time the fan quit working. Again he was told another piece plastic had wrapped around the fan. Back to Denver OK. Next trip was to upper state of Michigan, on the way back to Denver he broke down in North Platte, Neb. This time it took a week to get the part as it was the fan again. I'm not sure just what part that caused the fan to almost go into the radiator. Getting back to Denver it was placed in the dealer ship to get checked out as it was still under warranty. next trip was from Denver to down here in Texas. This time broke down just northwest of Amarillo This time the box thing that holds the fan fell off sent the fan down all the way through the radiator out the side of the coach tore up some of the fiber glass, threw parts all over the highway. when the wrecker came to tow it, it tore up the front end as the wrecker didn't hook to it correctly. The story was that the repair done in North Platte all the bolts were not replaced which let the whole thing come loose. It took over a week to get it all repaired. He is still fighting with the dealership to make sure every thing is fixed properly, or he wants a new coach replacement. I told him Good Luck. I believe it had a Freight Liner engine. I always thought Dutch Star was one of the Top If the line Motor Homes.
