RE: For what it's worth...Flying J and Pilot

Old news. There not the first or will be the last!! Government needs money so they find a way to fine anyone for anything!

RE: Power Cord/Extension Cord Melted Together

Cut the ends off and replace them which is a lot cheaper than new cords. If you haven't pick up a voltage meter. They melted from either low voltage, or bad connection but my bets on low voltage.

RE: Tire Inflation Guide

Need to look at the load range on the replacement tires. Most RV replacement tires are one or two load ranges high with a higher max. pressure then what was originally put on. I was taught many moons ago that to be safe air tires to 10% of what the max. pressure is on the tire. This has worked for 40 years now.

RE: Troubling pattern w/Pilot/Flying J

Only had a couple of problems a few years back with the charge card when they first can out. Use it all the time since all the station around SE MI are within a couple cents of each other with the discount works for us. Gas buddy is useless unless you want to drive all over town to a station I wouldn't attempt to drive my RV into.

RE: Water heater repair worth sharing

The problem is if you can do it with the right parts and safely it can be worth it. Gas valves are not only a safely device but also controls pressure. Using non stand parts can endanger you, your family and others. If you can not repair to factory spec. then replace the item for every ones safety. Saving a few dollars is not worth the cost of a hospital visit or bill from a fire department.

RE: Totaled my rig

Sorry for the accident! Sounds like you were driving in windy conditions. I've made it a habit to stay put if cross wind gusts over 30 MPH are expected. Maybe the truckers was going that speed because he knew the winds were gusting. Remember just because it says 70MPH does not mean you should drive that fast if unsafe conditions dictate otherwise. The Mackinaw Bridge is a good example of cross wind driving with days that trucks and RV are escorted across at under 25MPH because of high cross winds or even not allowed until the winds die down.

RE: Quality Vendor to Purchase Motor Home Tires

Those are old tires since Goodyears are now all load range G in that size. They sound like original and if one goes it's time to replace them all. You should be running load range G all the way around.

RE: Fixing a REALLY old American Apliance (Suburban) water heater

From a 25 year Appliance tech. either convert to all electric with a Hot Rod kit or replace the water heater. Bypassing/eliminating a gas solenoid is a fire or possible explosion waiting to happen since the two solenoids are a safety design!!!! Water heaters start a about $450. Your burner tube is just about rust out and bypassing the gas valve is an accident waiting to happen.

RE: purchasing new tires

Have the tires inspected by a qualified tire dealer after 6 years and at least once a year thereafter. If tires are good they can go 10-11 years. I'll be changing my back 11 year old Goodyears next month which are still good but tread depth is getting down.

RE: Thor AXIS or VEGAS ruv

Not impressed with Thor quality control. They have come along way but standards are not as high as the other MH manufactures. Thor has bought up several manufactures but done little to improve quality.

RE: Outside fiberglass ripped off

Inspect it real close for water intrusion around the area where in ripped off. A lot of time water will seep in cause the wood to swell and pull away along seams.

RE: Is it worth the washer and dryer?

YES!!!! YES!!!! and YES!!!! The Splendide gets used almost every other day. Other than the queen size bed spread and throw rugs everything gets washed no matter where we are parked as long as we have a drain. A few loads will fill up the gray water tank so you need to be able to dump.

RE: Hard wired surge protector versus Autoformer?

Autoformer will increase voltage slightly when needed and surge protector will shut down until voltage increase to a safe level. The all in one yellow box system sold at Camping World will do both!

RE: Monaco Lapalma

They had a lot of frame problems with the early 2000 models when they used a different type framing system. Friends was repair twice under warranty and ten grand the last time two years ago. Be careful and research past history including calling previous owners if possible. This could be one to walk away from!

RE: a follow up to "service disaster at Coburg Camping World"

I have to agree with Knowles that all his post so far are about CW and problems with a 13 year rig he bought from some Wholesale dealer and expects CW to fix for him since they did an inspection on it. We go back to the old saying about buying a used vehicle or rig "Buyer Beware" and a 13 year old rig is going to have problems. Why do you think it was traded in!!!

RE: leak

Take back to the dealer and get it documented and totally checked. Water damage is something you want documented since you could have real trouble months from now from water sitting hide inside!!!!

RE: flying J

I find Flying J and Pilot prices the same and in some cases cheaper than other large fuel stops in the area. I've used them and the charge card for the last few years and with few problems. With the RV lanes and large pump areas fueling is easy at either site!

RE: Tips on picking, entering, and leaving gas stations

A lot of people bad mouth Flying J and Pilot but they have some of the biggest swing around to the pumps. Also the RV and truck lanes are great.

RE: Credit cards at the pump

Been using the Flying J charge card for a couple of years needs control number for safety, no limit at the pump, discount automatically at the pump, and paid monthly or earlier if needed. There prices are about the same as everyone else now.
