RE: Do you turn off your engine at the gas station?

RE: What slide design do you prefer

We personally don't like slides in the bedroom. After looking at hundreds of motorhomes one thing I would never get would be the headboard of the bed in the slide. We prefer the brightness and the air flow with two large windows.

RE: Pre Purchase Advice

Price seems good to me. I purchased mine almost six months ago without a single service record or any kind of independent inspection. The inside and outside were in very good condition figured the engine and tranny would be also. I'll let you know how it turns out.

RE: Do you turn off your engine at the gas station?

Yesterday was my first time ever filling up my new diesel pusher at the truck lanes at the Pilot in Marianna, FL. It was raining heavily when I arrived. What seemed odd to me was that not a single big rig tractor trailer turned off their engine despite the fact that the pumps indicate that you must turn off your engine. I turned mine off, but was wondering, what exactly are the pros and cons of turning off the engine? Why do so many truckers leave the engine running and should I also leave mine running? And while this post is about diesel engines, I welcome comments about gas engines as well because I've often been curious as to why they have to shut off their engines. I've heard it's a fire risk, but I have some difficulty seeing how. Maybe if someone pours fuel on the engine? Beautiful coach. Good luck with it and many happy miles. You look very small standing next to that beast. Lol

RE: Fun / Projects / with my 1997 America Dream

1998 Country Coach Magna. On a side note if you would like a bunch of info about your chassis such as part numbers,front end specs,build sheets,chassis inspections and more call Bo with your vin number and he can send you about 15 pages of stuff. Might be able to ask he about the gillig plaque also.

I also sent a message to Country Coach to see if I can get a part number. Bo.Vongamath@gillig.com

RE: Rough enough?

Wolfe10, there is a picture of Johns motorhome in the profile section. It kind of looks like a Pace Arrow. It also looks like a 1998 Country Coach Magna. Mid door entry. Don't think CC had one. I had a 94 Pacearrow. I'm going with 96-97 PaceArrow. Mike, Country Coach did offer mid-door versions of their coaches. The original brochure of our coach shows a mid-door version of every floor plan for that year. Can't tell you how long they offered that, but I have only seen one mid-door Affinity, and I believe it was around a 97-99. http://i.imgur.com/t1Jf8sOl.jpg

RE: Am I out of my depth?

Seal up the leaks fix up the inside and enjoy the heck out of it. De lamination is an eyesore, do not look at it. You will have a great time using it. Pogoil. I agree. I think you got a good deal overall. After reading about it, I was surprised at the pictures. Fix it and enjoy. Fred X2 I thought it was going to look something like this http://i.imgur.com/3Knoo4yl.jpg

RE: Fun / Projects / with my 1997 America Dream

bad repair shops / lazy workers - I wouldnt call that bad luck....but thats why i do most of my own repairs....the rest comes w/ ownership...he's STILL money ahead compared to buying a NEW coach ! having to replace a generator....no fun...but it happens...i had to replace the stator on mine ($2k). Well that's what is great about these forums. We can agree to disagree.

RE: Fun / Projects / with my 1997 America Dream

Wow seems like you have been having some real $hitty luck. i disagree. its mechanical & its got some age on it....stuff wears, breaks and need occasional refresh....motorcycle, car, boat, rv or airplane....this is all part of ownership. I dont know if you have read all his stuff but a lot of it is bad luck. From the shady overpriced repair work that was done by I believe two different repair shops and then had to file in small claims or with dmv. Just recently with Window replacement the tape pulling off the exterior paint and the window installers chiseling finish screws out with a screwdriver. As far as old stuff I'm right there. My last rig was even four years older than the old one I have now.

RE: Considering this used Class A.......

For 1-2 trips per year I would skip a diesel. they need to be run and do not like to sit for long periods without use, this actually goes for any RV. I would suggest renting one instead. save the purchase for when you will use it more frequently. That's why farmers buy new equipment every couple years :W

RE: Safari Owners

it may be a battery boost switch since it's a rocker switch.....gives you some extra power for starting the coach! That's what I would go with also.
