You may want to consider this option instead of upgrading your rig: http://www.hendersonslineup.com/

RE: Totaled my fifth wheel, how to work with insurance adjuster

I would ask for assistance from your carrier.....hopefully they will be willing to work for your benefit against the other carrier. I would also take the original purchase price of both the 5th wheel as well as the truck and deduct 10% for each year of ownership. You can also see what www.nada.com says about the value of each vehicle.

RE: How many in the RV community own an Electric vehicle.

We own a Tesla Model S but do not tow it. We have a Chevy HHR as a dinghy.

RE: Costco Auto Program

We have used it on 4 vehicles over the years. It is a money saver and no haggling. Bought our daughter a 2015 Hyundai and had a price in mind. Ended up saving $200 over what I really wanted to pay.

RE: Travel to Mammoth, CA in Winter

Have gone to Carson City,NV for family ski trips and stay with relatives. I watch the weather and plan accordingly. I have had to put chains on the Class A twice and that was between Mammoth and June Lake.

RE: Maybe a contracts question?

THIS IS IN CALIFORNIA!! First, if they do call you, say "no cooling off period". They accepted your vehicle "As-Is". It was their responsibility to perform an inspection. Then you need to call the DMV and Dept. of Consumers Affairs and report them as withholding DMV paperwork on your new vehicle. http://www.dca.ca.gov/publications/car_buyer_rights.shtml

RE: class a tires

For Michelin's I think the tire buy program through the FMCA club is well worth a one year membership.

RE: Thoughts on a Chevy 8.1L Gas Engine vintage 2003

We had a 2003 Holiday Rambler Class A on the Workhorse Chassis with the Chevy 8.1 liter engine. Had a for 11 days and an engine fire destroyed the rig. Insurance handled it well. The cause: Recall Summary: ON CERTAIN MOTOR HOME AND TRUCK CHASSIS EQUIPPED WITH GENERAL MOTORS 8.1L V8 ENGINES, IMPROPER HARDENING DURING THE HEAT TREATMENT PROCESS CAN CAUSE THE FUEL RAIL PULSE DAMPER RETAINER CLIP TO FRACTURE, RESULTING IN INADEQUATE RETENTION OF THE DAMPER. IF THE DAMPER BECOMES LOOSE, FUEL COULD BE PUMPED BY THE FUEL PUMP INTO THE UNDER HOOD AREA. This recall was issued in 2006 and can be found on the internet.

RE: Carry chains- Travel Trailer and Class A Question???

I have had to put them on our Class A and on our C, when we had that, up at Mammoth Ski Area.....I did not think it was to big of a deal as long as I wore my ski pants and jacket and laid on a piece of outdoor carpeting. Bought ours at Les Schwab Tire Stores.

RE: Sanitizing fresh water system

I do this annually. 1/4 cup bleach to 10 gallons of water. Pour the bleach into the tank using a funnel. Drive 15 miles to slosh it around and then run it through all of the faucets until I can smell the bleach. Then let it sit for 4 hours. Then drain the tank and refill with fresh water. Usually change the oil at the same time.

RE: Ford V10 Power, effectivity

We have a Ford in a 2013 Tiffin Allegro Open Road 36LA which is actually 37 ft. I find that pulling a small HHR it goes over the passes slower but well enough. I figured that for the same coach with a diesel it was going to cost another $30,000. I did not think it was worth it. BUT anything larger I would go Diesel.

RE: Trim those trees.. please!!

All trees near roadways in campgrounds should be trimmed up to 14 feet. That is just common sense. Please make sure you post this review on www.rvparkreviews.com

You can try advertising on Craigs List We have saved time and hassle and sold two cars to CarMax. Give you dealer price, but quick and easy and no hassle.

Good ideas above...but also Google the "Geo Method" and do that as well.

RE: 2004 Holiday Rambler Admiral 30'

Had one for 8 years. Had the 2003 & 2004 34-SBD. The 2003 caught fire and was a total loss. Bought the 2004 and they had a recall for the fuel line bracket on top of the engine. The bracket was not properly hardened. The wet bay heater, dual pane windows and energy management system were options. You will want to make sure that the following recalls were completed. Air flow diverter kit to increase air flow over the spark plug wires. Brake caliper, dash instrument cluster replaced.

RE: Oregon Lemon Law

Did this in California 5 or 6 years ago with a Saturn Vue Hybrid. It was really simple. No attorney was needed. I read in the owners manual how to initiate the Lemon Law Procedure. I called GM's customer no-service hotline and it was really unprofessional on their part. Per the Saturn Owners Manual I then contacted GM's Lemon Law Advocate which was the Better Business Bureau. Took less than 4 weeks to get a credit on a new GM product. The underlying problem was the hybrid battery had shorted out again and they had no idea when we could get a new one.

RE: Rough riding F53 chasis.

Weigh your rig....tires will probably need to be inflated to 80 or 85 PSI. Anything higher will increase the ride harshness. Some info can be gleaned from this website http://www.hendersonslineup.com/. Had work done on our 36 Allegro Open Road and made a huge difference. Expensive, but much cheaper than a new diesel.
