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.

RE: Class A body roll

An update to this post. I did install Sumo springs on the front, and a steering stabilizer. Even though the original topic is about body roll, these two items helped with other issues I was having. The Sumo springs did help with the pounding jarring you get on those chassis' when hitting a bump on the interstate and it did help some with the sway. The steering stabilizer has done just that. I did purchase the additional Sumo springs for the rear to go in place of the bump stops. I think this will add additional stability with the jarring and with the sway, but I am going to go with the additional rear sway bar from Road Master on the rear. I feel a little more in control of the rig with just these two items installed. More importantly, my wife noticed a difference after she got behind the wheel.

RE: Tell me if I'm crazy?

Keep in mind on this thread the folks that are giving you advice that have actually been to those areas. The one thing they have in common is their encouragement for your journey. Most of the private full service campgrounds are going to be in the cities surrounding the areas that you are going to. I really like 2gypsies suggestions. It sounds like he has been more recently than I have.

RE: Tell me if I'm crazy?

You are not crazy and sounds like a fantastic adventure. There are plenty of private campgrounds that are open year round. We took that trip during Christmas and New Years about 3 years ago. We had a fantastic time. That area is just made for RV's. If you can't find a campground, there are plenty of wide open spaces that you can run the generator and just park overnight to sleep. Keep your water tank full while traveling, as there may be some parks that may not have their water turned on due to the time of year. The campground at Arches is a primitive campground, but absolutely gorgeous. I don't know where these people get their information when they tell you that you need a commercial license for a private motorhome for personal use. This is utter nonsense. You just need a regular driver's license. Have fun and enjoy!

Direct TV - extra bedroom receiver in motorhome

I am considering switching my home service to Direct TV so I can use one of the extra bedroom receivers in my motorhome. This use to work perfectly fine with the older receivers, but can we still do this with the newer receivers supplied by Direct for those with newer service?

RE: Owners opinions, please.

I had a 2007 Damon by Thor. I just traded it last year for a 2016 Fleetwood bounder. You did not mention what year Challenger you are looking at. I would make sure you check your rail system on those slides before you buy. There were one or two years that the larger slides were being installed with a two rail, rather than a three rail slide system. There were problems. If you have not checked into the newer Fleetwood bounders, I would highly recommend it. There were a couple of selling points for me over the Challenger. The bounder comes with a 100 gallon fresh water tank and a 10 gallon hot water heater. The Challenger only comes with a 6 gallon standard hot water heater. The difference is night and day. Your husband will appreciate the **** pit area of the newer bounder rather than that of the Challenger. One other thing to think about. In 2016 we have a newer overdrive gear in the transmission. This does help to alleviate a lot of noise issues associated with the previous years noise complaints, but only when driving on mostly flat terrain.

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: 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.
