RE: Switch to Bumper Pull?

A 10-15 year old gas MH with 40,000 miles is pretty cheap. Get on ebay and see what they are really going for. Inspect it well, and do 3-4 thousand in maintenance (tires, shocks, Henderson bell cranks, sway bar bushings, rear axle brace, Sumo springs, 4 rolls of eternabond tape etc), and you will be good for 10-15 more years. I have an old p-32, and it took me a while to get it to handle well but I've got it straightened out and it is a great unit. Much easier to deal with than a TT. Generator starts at the push of a button. Traveling is much more convenient. My class a is more noisy than a car. I wear noise canceling ear buds.

RE: Switch to Bumper Pull?

What about a smaller motorhome? Mine is a lot easier to deal with than my TT was. I buy used so the financial hit wasn't that bad. Your truck will probably cover the cost of most of it.

RE: Eternabond as prevention

I like to use lacquer thinner applied with a cloth rag for surface prep. I've had some lift offs using acetone. Wear gloves.

RE: Magik's Class A

Did the dually spacers improve the handling of the motorhome?

RE: Address of beginning (Nashville) of Natchez Trace

Is there a Fly'n J, Pilot, Walmart, Cracker Barrel or other place to boondock somewhere fairly close? I'd like to get there Friday night and start the Trace Saturday.

Address of beginning (Nashville) of Natchez Trace

I'm trying to get Googla maps to route me to the beginning of Natchez Trace south of Nashville. Anyone have the address or name of a small city that will get me there?

RE: Sears & Roebuck Alert

We were able to get our first Credit Card at 16 thanks to Sears and start building our credit. When I first started filing bankruptcy cases in the 80's everybody had a Sears card, and they all wanted to keep it. Sears had a representative at every creditors meeting. I bet I haven't seen a Sears card in 15 years. Now that anyone can get a Visa card, there is no need to shop at Sears. Easy credit was the foundation of their business.

RE: is This Safe?

Find a Radio Shack. They should be able to cobble something together that can take 12 volts off your RV electrical system (cigar lighter) with a plug on the other end that will fit your TV. My Samsung takes 19 volts, and I was able to find a 12v to 19 v converter in a cigar plug, and a plug on the other end that fit my TV. Now I can run the TV without the Ganerator or inverter.

RE: Moab and vicinity

6 days THERE; not counting travel days. That is all I can do until I retire.

RE: Moab and vicinity

I will have 6 days out there in September. I'm going to do the North Rim, Mokee Dugway with Valley of the Gods, and Monument Valley. I plan on taking all the time I need at each spot. I would like to see other things, but I want to throughly enjoy these 3 places without feeling rushed. The only rushing I'm going to do is getting out there and back. I'm taking the motorhome. I was considering taking my convertible, but traveling by motorhome is so darn convenient. I'm bringing a 225cc dualsport motorcycle for the Dugway and VOG.

RE: Newbie Adventures in a 1987 HONEY RV w/ a Chevy 454

Looks nice! I agree on the length. Mine is a 27 footer; the shortest I could get with a slide.

RE: Rremoval of MegaBackup and MacKeeper from Mac

It worked on the MacKeeper! Thanks. Now I need to work on the MegaBackup.

RE: RvParky and Cracker Barrel

I usually arrive at CB after close and park in a regular spot in the front close to a street light. Sometimes the designated RV sots are isolated.

RE: Rremoval of MegaBackup and MacKeeper from Mac

Rremoval of MegaBackup and MacKeeper from Mac

I thought I was updating a flash player. Anyway, MegaBackup and Mackeeper were the result rendering the computer unusable. I've searched the net for solutions, but can't find anything that works. Is there RELIABLE software to remove this malware?

RE: 86' Chieftain Acquisition

I always hear owners of these carbed coaches complaining about gasoline smell. Is there an inexpensive throtle body injection kit for this engine?

RE: 86' Chieftain Acquisition

Eternabond every seam and joint on the roof as soon as possible. Water is the enemy.

RE: Front receiver hitch on tow vehicle

I carried a 230 pound motorcycle on the front of my Ford Excursion. No problems.
