RE: Tow car hookup by single person

I tow a jeep wrangler with the cheapest rigid tow bar available. I wrap the chains around the tow hooks on top of the front bumper to hold the tongue up until it is lined up with the ball. Simple procedure for one person. Before that, I had a tow dolly and I towed a Dodge Grand Caravan. I have never had a problem hooking up the tow vehicle by myself. I have always considered this an easy process.

RE: Hot/Cold shower

Is it possible that you have a leak in your plumbing somewhere?

RE: Class A body roll

I can see where new or beefed up shocks would help the sway somewhat. I think a combination of all of the above would help with every aspect of the suspension on these F53's. I just don't want to drop $7500 at one time to have the perfect ride. One question I do have. Has anyone added aftermarket adjustable sway bar linkages? What about just purchasing the adjustable linkage and tightening them to produce more downward pressure on the existing bar? Is this possible, or could I break the linkage and bar?

RE: Class A body roll

I purchased front sumo springs and a steering stabilizer. I will start with these and see what kind of results I get. I can do the install very easily. I'm still trying to rectify why Tiffin has the sumo springs as standard equipment unless there is real improvement in the ride. I will update every one once installed.

RE: Key West info request

I think you will enjoy being at Boyd's. Good choice. It is still cramped feeling, but that is what get if you want to experience Key West conveniently. We did enjoy their pool.

RE: Key West info request

Boyd's RV park is the closest premium park to Key West. They will accommodate your rig and toad. https://www.boydscampground.com/ It is quite expensive though. We stayed there and rode bikes into Key West. I would not advise riding bikes into town unless you are physically fit though. The ride was probably 6-8 miles round trip with touring around downtown. Parking is at a premium, but very possible with your toad.

RE: DH is concerned because our Coachmen Mirada has no bumpers

I have not seen official bumpers on any rig. You can have one fabricated by a good welding shop. I did see a rig one time where the owner had a hitch receiver welded to the frame on the front and had a fabricated bumper with lights mounted to it. He could remove it to wash behind it, etc. I have considered having this done myself.

Class A body roll

I know this topic has been covered many times. I purchased a 2016 Fleetwood bounder 35K this year with a 22,000lbs F53 suspension. These are very tall rigs and very top heavy. I performed the cheap handling fix but the amount of body roll is still too out of control. Tiffin motorhomes adds Sumo springs as a standard feature on their class A gas rigs. Would the Sumo springs help with the body roll issue? I want to stiffen up the body roll. Road master makes a beefed up sway bar that is quite expensive, but for my issue, I think I need a beefed up sway bar for both front and back. What would be the cheapest route to begin with first? The cheap handling fix has already been done.

RE: Traveling vs Camping

Putting this in the class A section because I think it is more likely a consideration. Do you consider your use of your RV more for traveling or camping? Both Is there really little reason to have an RV if you don't want to dedicate your vacation time to camping? How many still fly and stay at nice hotels or do you spend every vacation night in a roadside RV park, night time parking lot, and a campground when you get there? All of the above As an example, how about a beach vacation - condo right on the beach, or an RV park 20 feet from your neighbor a half mile inland? For the most part, the more desirable real estate locations are not used for RV parks. Maybe for the most part, but down here where we live, there are a few that are right on the water. just curious So, I think your questions are more worded as though they are statements, but I will try and tackle the answer. It comes down to one word, Choice. A motorhome provides you with choice that you would not otherwise have by flying and staying in a hotel or condo. Deciding on whether you would like to sleep in your own bed or a hotel bed (some are good and most are bad) as you get older becomes a little more important. Taking things slower and seeing the country side is very appealing. If cost is an issue, then truly flying and staying in a hotel or condo is cheaper. Motorhomes are definitely more expensive over the long haul. It is nice though to decide one day if you would like to take the motorhome or if you would like to fly and stay in a hotel. We've done both, to even include cruising during our years of motorhome ownership.

RE: how do you remove watermarks on sides of rv

What do you all use to remove the watermarks from the sides of your rv? I have a black and gold finish on my coach and have the water runoff stains from the awning down the sides and can't seem to find anything to remove them. I have used the black stain/watermark remover stuff you can get at campingworld but it did not work. I have tried wax, wash and wax for airplanes and nothing has worked. Any help or info is greatly appreciated. Most any degreaser will work. Try Simple Green. It should work like a charm.

RE: rv financing

Ally bank just financed ours in June. We were able to get 3.95% interest.

RE: Is the engine dying a serious issue in a '94 Damon Intruder?

There is no way to know. I would bet that there are probably a dozen RV's for sale close by that would not stall out on the first test drive. It is definitely not a good sign when the engine stalls during a test drive. The battery would not be the problem if it started back up without having to jump start it.

RE: How do you answer when a stranger asks about MPG?

I just tell them that I get 6 mpg. On this site, I find this discussion more akin to fish stories though. I love it when someone tells me they get 12 mpg with a class A.

RE: Mount Rushmore in the Winter

I am still fairly young and don't mind taking some risk with traveling up in those areas during the winter months. I love touring around in areas with fewer people because I hate lines and waiting. I tow a Jeep Sahara and it did great in Silverton a couple of years ago at Christmas. The snow was about 1/2 the depth of the tires through town. Loved it! The route I am going, does not look like it will take me through any tremendously high mountain passes, but do have a set of chains for both vehicles if snow gets hubcap deep on a Ferris Wheel.

RE: Mount Rushmore in the Winter

We went to Durango and Silverton in 2012 during this time. Loved it. Very few people for getting away from it all. How do the slide topper awnings do in the snow and ice? Can you pull the slide in without tearing up the awning?

RE: What to expect with a new gasser

my wife's relatives had a gasser and a toad and when they came over the the rockies she had to get out and drive the toad over, it was just too much for the MH gasser to pull. he traded it in and bought a diesel and ended that problem How many years ago was this?

RE: What to expect with a new gasser

I do have a gasser, but pull a jeep. You will definitely slow down, but you will be on par with the loaded semi-trucks pulling steep grades.
