RE: Pink stuff vs Air pressure - The Verdict

In typical over-do fashion, I blew out the lines, suck in a couple of gallons of pink stuff, then blow out the lines again. It's hard to get everything out of the washer pipes. yup drain out anti freeze no taste.

RE: Don't Buy a Dodge, There is a Good Reason Why .

Don't like it get rid of it.Who said it has to cost you more money,bet there is a good chevy out there that is better then your truck and cost less.So what if you have to go back a few years.I have to agree that buying a leased manual shift vehicle is very iffy.But you did get a really good deal didn't you,and you weren't going to have to deal with those crappy Ram automatic transmissions.You listed all the other problems that Dodge is supposed to have and bought it anyway??I have a friend that did the same thing,a lease back.He asked my opinion and after looking at the truck,knew it was an oil field unit.He finally got rid of it after spending a huge amount to keep it going with repairs.He now laughs and says his pride cost him more then a new one.Move on shed the stress,that is what will kill you not the truck.

RE: Olive oil?

You can Google EVOO and read on Wikipedia for hours about EVOO. Quality EVOO is the product of pressed olives: basically pure fruit oil. Easy to digest. Much of what is sold as EVOO is processed, cooked,refined oil. You might as well use Canola. Trader Joes has some good EVOO. You can find good EVOO at most Health Food stores. The refined light olive oils aren't much if any better for you than Canola. I use first press EVOO for all my cooking except for deep frying and then I use Peanut oil. Somebody knows what they are talking about.thanks.

RE: black tank valve handle in or out means valve closed

His dealer couldn't answer the question? Not very encouraging. Tell your buddy to pour some RV antifreeze into the black tank. He will get his answer. If some antifreeze runs out, no harm. He hadn't opened the drain pipe cap yet. Always stand with your feet wide apart when doing that to check.

RE: Olive oil?

It's really all in the taste buds of the user,do some research on olive oil and you may decide that the olive oil cartels of Italy do a very good job of labeling and defining.Used animal fat,butter for 74 years probably not changing due to advertising,lol,

RE: town ordinace against travel trailers on city streets

And tell me if you would be alright with people living in the rv.s and hoses and cords running across side walks and then tanks being dumped because it slopes toward the storm drains????No, well now just legislate the size of hose,amperage of cords and grey waters ok but no black.Ok define black and what degree of black is really black.Think about it and expand the box!!If you are comfortable with any of these and others aren't guess who is in the minority.Remember democracy,as long as it agrees with ME ok.lol.

RE: Need help with decision on my coach

Well think of it this way.What will your existing motor home be worth in 10 to 15 years/ what will your money from sale of it now and invested be worth in 10 to 15 years.I know you can't very accurately determine inflation or investment rates for that long.Also how do you estimate maintenance and insurance costs for 10 or 15 years of ownership if you keep it.Do what your comfortable with and what feels right,make sure to look at it from all angles.It is a very hard question to answer,I suspect 90% of opinions will be biased to keep it on this site,and thats fine too.

RE: Costs that go away, costs that stay

And the big one that most folks ignore or don't think affects the long term financial picture.Rv Depreciation.Stick homes vary up and down but long term appreciate in value,Rv's never appreciate.It starts as soon as you sign the bill of sale. Not true. Our previous 5TH wheel sold for a 5% appreciation value after 4.5 years of use. That is great, mind sharing the facts.There are exceptions for sure,glad you were part of one,certainly bucks the industry norm that appears when looking at values.So to understand you made 5% on your original investment after 4.5 years.Wow.

RE: Costs that go away, costs that stay

And the big one that most folks ignore or don't think affects the long term financial picture.Rv Depreciation.Stick homes vary up and down but long term appreciate in value,Rv's never appreciate.It starts as soon as you sign the bill of sale. In all our figuring, we did not consider depreciation because we consider it spent money. The depreciation on our RV isn't costing us anything because the money doesn't exist. As far as we are concerned, the money spent on our RV is the same as the money we spent on gas, food, insurance, etc. It is the cost of every day living. It doesn't affect our long term picture because it is as meaningless as the money we spent on pizza yesterday. Someday, if we sell our current rig, we will get money for it. That money will exist and will be useful - it will be found money. Real money, not 'on paper' money. Just like when we sold the contents of our S&B. When we bought our rig, we didn't buy it for profit, just like we don't buy our clothes for profit. An RV isn't an appreciable asset such as a house (which is only appreciable because of the land it sits on, not the house itself). And all appreciation is on paper anyway, until you actually sell it. Never sell it, and appreciation and depreciation are meaningless. Lol.Pretty innovative accounting.How do you know your net worth when you do any accounting or taxes and investing?That can be a pretty big write off.At any rate just a comment of mine that may be totally irrelevant to anyone else.

RE: Remdies for Bugs & Bears

Very interesting about Canadian law. Are you saying in Canada you are not allowed to defend yourself against an attacker? Just have to accept attack and file a report? Don't even go there about that issue.

RE: RV held hostage by CW - Little Rock

I think you may as well get ready for a long ugly drama.Bet the final solution will be you pay the extra that Monaco does not want to pay.It is all a bunch of bull as Monaco authorized the repair,and should resolve the problem.Why is CW even talking to you about the bill.The CW manager should be demoted at best or fired for even being this stupid.You do not pile bad press on the business,Monaco should pay there bills and shut there pie hole,what a pair of upstanding reputable business's.Ridiculous.Ok I am taking my meds and going to bed the nurse is here. Well, our local physic has come forth with his insight. Shame he could not take his meds before the prediction. This comment is even less helpful then mine.Lol.Being a PSYCHIC I finally figured out what you meant:W

RE: stress fracture

Maybe the dealer would take calls from your lawyer. Let's see if I read this correctly. You are advising OP to hire a Lawyer and try to force a Dealer (which he did not purchase the unit from) to do work on said unit. Do you think the OP would be satisfied with the work done on the unit? Do you think the Dealer will put the unit in front of their customers that purchased from them, to get OP unit fixed? What if you were the customer that purchased from said Dealer, and Dealer pushes you back to work on a unit that was not even purchased from the Dealer? Take the unit back to the Dealer you purchased it from and get it fixed. I doubt Monaco can force, or even wants to force, the Dealer to work on a unit they have no interest in. Well all I can say is that a reread of all posts pertaining to this issue might be interesting to you,including the CW performance along with Monaco support in another post.You will then understand the situation a little better.

RE: Foam for pipes around underbelly?

I would be very surprised if the foam is anything but the cheap stuff painted black.

RE: Everything Was Going So Well.....Until It Wasn't

Yep these things don't play well together, slippery conditions,dual wheels and four wheel drive.Dual wheels are not good for much except weight carrying.Likely a single rear wheel would have bit through the snow and ice with more weight per square in. then the dual wheels.But once the truck wheels stop turning ,there is no steering available.Too bad nice looking truck,hope you can fix it.
