RE: We're all tired of reading about 'wandering' problems....

My 34’ long Tiffin 32SA gasser has factory installed Sumo springs but an otherwise stock suspension and tracks and handles well. Perhaps this can be attributed to the 24,000 pound chassis, unusual in a 34 foot gasser, and the 228” wheelbase, the longest available in a 34 footer. Indeed, some 34 foot gassers use a 208” wheelbase and have a tragically long rear overhang. In any event I’ve no need to modify the suspension or steering. I do think the Sumo springs are helpful. I purchased a 2016 Bounder 35K and added the Sumo Springs. It did help to stiffen up the roll that was causing my main steering issue. It does feel somewhat tighter in the steering. I also added a steering stabilizer and did the cheap handling fix, but all of those things help moderately. I do believe that I need the auxillary Roadmaster sway bar, but I really hate to drop over $900.00 for it. Will end up doing that though. Check with Henderson's Line up online. They actually have package deals with installation that include several of these parts for improved ride.

RE: Camping World for Collision repair? General Auto body shop?

I have used Camping World for a passenger side mirror that had come off because of a leak. They removed the fiberglass and fixed the mirror. The paint was essentially spray paint and peeled off rather easily from the repaired fiberglass after the work was done. The icing on the cake for me, was when my door lock failed and they destroyed my door and frame trying to get the door opened. Then they tried to return my coach to me without repairing the disaster they created. I had to file a claim with my insurance for the damage they created and they, in turn somewhat corrected. The door and frame never closed properly again after they damaged it. A good body repair shop, more than likely would have been able to correct that. I know that every Camping World repair facility is different, but I have two within a 50 mile radius of where I live, and I have had a lousy experience at both of them. Consumer beware of the Camping World repair facilities. This is just my experience and opinion though.

RE: New Class A - opinions on covering it?

I have a 36 foot metal prefab 12Ft high carport. If you have the space go with 18 feet wide rather than the 12 I went with. If I had the space I would have gone a little wider than 12 so I can get into my storage bins etc. without any problems. Permanent poll barn or carport all the way. I too purchased a fold up cover and used it once. Never used it again. Too heavy and too much work.

RE: Strange Sound

Did you check to make sure your jacks are not partially down? The alarm on my previous MH made a sound similar to what you describe. If a wire comes loose it can cause that persistent false alarm if the jacks are not down.

RE: Diesel more sluggish than gas?

I drive a 2007 37 foot Super C diesel with a group that I sing with. I also own a 2016 newer 36 foot Class A gasser. The weight comparison of both rigs is close. Here is the difference. The Super C diesel gets about 10 miles per gallon of fuel where my gasser gets about 6-7. The Super C has more power on hills and takes them at lower RPMS. The only downside to the diesel is that it heats up more on the hills than my gasser. The gasser is louder because of it's requirement to downshift more frequently than the Super C. The diesel is not more sluggish. I would recommend the diesel if the cost is not prohibitive.

RE: Our first motorhome question.

Yes. This is normal class A gasser behavior. They do not behave well on bumpy roads or windy conditions. There is no magical fix other than lowering the air pressure in your tires. Be very careful about the potential for blow outs with insufficient air pressure in your tires though. You can't really group them all into that category, IMO, as we had a P32 National Tropical with a tag axle for 9yrs, that we drove all over the country and must say, that if anyone had complaints with the way it handled, then I'd have to say, that they just couldn't drive. The only strain I ever had with driving it, was when we drove across three SW states in 50mph crosswinds and that would have been with anything. Other than that, one little finger on the wheel would keep it between the lines and trucks didn't have much of an effect on it, either. Don't think there's a better ride out there, other than a DP. Naturally what we have now is superior and even without the tag, as there's not much overhang behind the rear wheels and what it's all about IMO with whether or not, the tail is going to wag the dog or not. Topical 36, I was not aware that gassers had tag axles. Please read my post again. I specifically stated "gassers". I would much prefer the diesel chassis ride over a gasser, but the poster was asking about his gas rig. Just clearing it up.

RE: Tire covers

I too utilized them once and did not find that they made any difference in a set of tires that would be timed out at 7-8 years. I still had cracks in the side walls at 7-8 years. My experience with them would be identical to "hipower".

RE: Not Happy witn new Tiffin

I've had my 2016 Fleetwood Bounder 35K for a little over a year and am just now getting all the kinks worked out of it. Not big stuff (thank goodness) just little things that are annoying, but having owned travel trailers and one rig previously, I chalked it up to normal RV ownership.

RE: Sumo solos

Yes. it does stiffen up the ride a bit. But it also makes you feel a little more in control of the rig with all four. I replaced the bump stops. It would have made the ride too stiff if I had placed the larger sumo springs on the rear. You will still feel sway, but not to the degree that it was before. I will probably still go with a larger auxillary sway bar on the rear later.

RE: Why is there a TV over the driver seat?

I have 4 TV's in my rig. I only have two in my house. You almost get the feeling that they just put a TV on every empty wall space they can find. They are all the same brand as well. When you turn one on, there is at least another that will turn on at the same time with that same remote. Not complaining, just more than we will ever use.

RE: Deleted

These are vacuum type toilets that suck the contents into the holding tanks. Reverse air flow. Much like they have on cruise ships. The noise is not as loud as an AC unit. It should be slightly louder than the onboard water pump. I would consider someone too picky if this was bothersome to them in their site next door.

RE: Natchez Trace

Loved this trip. The roads are in good condition except through Jackson and Tupelo. You may hit a few pot holes in those two towns. The road gets better the further south you drive. Loved this drive! It took us about 4 days to do it. Make sure you eat at the King's Tavern in Natchez and the Lovelace Café in Nashville. Spend some time in Natchez and tour a few of the antebellum homes. Great trip. One of the best trips we have done in our MH.
