RE: Steering Stabilizers

I have a Blue Ox Tru Center sitting on my work bench for over a month while waiting for the back ordered bracket that is suppose to be on on July 15th. I've had that same one for about 80,000 miles. It is adjustable on the fly and it does make things a little easier to keep things going straight. I doubt if it will help much in the event of a front tire blow out since the power steering is much more powerful than the shock absorber on the steering stabilizer. This is assuming that you have your hands on the wheel. The only problem I have experienced is when trying to set it up while driving down the road. As soon as you hit the button to disengage it, the vehicle tends to veer off to one side or the other. Not a lot but it does need correction to stay in the lane. Then you go through sort of a trial and error until you finally hit the spot where it tracks straight down the road. Once you get it set right, I doubt if you will adjust it very often.

RE: Headed west

From Jackson Hole, take 89/191 south to Rock Springs, then continue south on 191 to Flaming Gorge. Nice campground north of Dutch John, called the Firefighter's Memorial, water and dump and some elec. Then down the hill to Vernal and staying on 191 to I 70, then east and down to the Arches..then back up to I 70 and across CO. We took I-90 West towards Rapid City, SD. When the Badlands come in to view along I90 it is pretty spectacular. You can find a campground near the airport at Wall, SD. From there you can take your toad to Rushmore and the Badlands. We continued across I90 and picked up 14 just north of Sheridan,WY, which we took through Cody and in to Yellowstone. There are RV parks all along the way for you to stay at. It is still open range and we had to wait for a large flock of sheep to cross the road before we got in to Cody, WY. Lots to see around that area. From there you can drive south from Yellowstone through the Grand Tetons, Jackson and pick up 191 south through Rock Springs to Dutch John. There is a campground in Dutch John, that is basic and the Fireman's Memorial campground is SOUTH of Dutch John, UT. Nice area, but watch out for cattle on the highway since it is open range with no fences. Or you can head on to Vernal, UT and on down 191 to Moab, UT to see Arches, CanyonLand, and Dead Horse Point. After that, you can head north back up 191 to I70 and head to Denver and East by any route that you like.

RE: Roof seam repair

Doesn't Winnebago have a recommendation since the sealant that you use also holds the roof in place? Winnebago roof seam sealant

RE: Airlift kit

Soak the new bags in hot water to soften them up before you try to install them.

RE: trading for bigger DP?

Check to make sure that it does not have any flood damage. There were quite a few vehicles flooded during the floods in the mid-West. They are usually sent out of the area to put up for sale. As I know from my own experience when our Jaguar was totaled,it takes a few months for the info to show up on CarFax. By then our Jag was repaired and sold to an unsuspecting buyer.

RE: Comparing Class A Cost To Travel Trailers

How many travel trailers have large pass through basement compartments?

RE: Moving Winguard Traveler

The Winegard came with two very long cables for the coax and the control so the extra is probably coiled up somewhere inside of your coach. I doubt if anyone cut the control cable since it has connectors on each end. If they did cut the coax, it would be easy to add an extension cable.

RE: Fair Market Value

You can also go to eBay and check the COMPLETED listings for a coach like yours. The ones with the price in GREEN are the ones that actually sold and the price they sold for. NADAguides is just that, a guide, that is not much help if you can't find anyone willing to pay that price. Here is a 1998 Country Coach Intrigue, that actually sold for $28,000. Ebay completed sale

RE: Luan plywood

If it is dry and feels pretty solid, they make several different MARINE products that bond, fill, and stabilize wood that has been water damaged.

RE: Dragging up driveway

Another vote for the air springs. I installed the Air Lift on my W24 frame. My drive way slopes down, and where it levels off at the bottom it was dragging. I had to use boards to get it in, and figured I only needed 1.5 " at the tires. The air springs got me 2" at 80 psi, so more than enough. I think I got close to 2.5" of lift at the rear of my coach with the air Lifts pumped up to 80psi.

RE: Dragging up driveway

Thanks for all the advice. I think I'll go with bags. You will like the air bags and they also have another benefit. Besides raising the rear end for your driveway, when you have to drive in windy conditions, just pump them up to around 80psi or so and it will stabilize your coach so that the gusts have minimal affect. I have the air bags in the front and rear and a push button on the dash to inflate or deflate the bags as needed. Windy conditions, I pump them up. For smooth roads and little wind, I keep them at about 30 psi.

RE: Dragging up driveway

No photo goes un-criticized on this forum, primarily why I rarely post them any more....so many uninformed critics. The photo of the wheel on the hitch is mounted/welded to the rear frame of the coach. On Monaco's, the rear hitch is the frame and engine mount. 10 years of towing a 5K boat and 6K truck and the hitch/frame didn't crack....should have known the hitch police would show up. There's a dual hitch there also, another hitch/weld police topic. On second thought, maybe it's better to drag the hitch instead.....that certainly won't cause any cracks or hitch failure!!! IF I wanted to criticize YOUR picture, I would have referenced it and quoted it, just like I am doing now. I was speaking in generalities about a wheel attached to a hitch. Not too many GAS coaches, like the OP's, have the rear hitch as part of the motor mount since most gas coaches, like the OP's, have the motor in the front. I stand by my comment about how a bolted on hitch, with a 500 pound tongue weight, on the back of the OP's coach, may be damaged by a roller welded on to that type of hitch.

RE: Opinions on replacing tires

I guess it depends on how you advertise it. Saying it is in good condition and is "ready to go camping" means that everything is in good condition and it has safe tires. Saying that it is in good condition but that it is sold "as is" and the buyer can decide what it needs, including tires.

RE: Dual tire pressure equalizer - Anyone use them?

Crossfires have check valves to prevent rapid deflation in one tire from deflating the other tire, however, a slow leak can deflate both tires over time. Best bet is to use a TPMS with a Crossfire installation to minimize that risk. Of course a TPMS is a good recommendation anyway, with or without the Crossfire setup. WRONG! You buy Crossfires that are set for a certain tire pressure, like 100 PSI. Then if one tire gets low, it will be isolated as soon as it reaches 10 psi below the set tire pressure. There is no way that BOTH tires will deflate unless you have a blowout or nail in BOTH tires at the same time. From their instructions: In slow leak situations, the valve isolates both tires after a pressure drop of approximately 10 P.S.I.

RE: Dual tire pressure equalizer - Anyone use them?

They work pretty good to keep the tires balanced. If you have a blowout on one tire, the other tires DOES NOT go flat, or even lose any air at all.

RE: Opinions on replacing tires

That depends what type of tires you get. Some people will want to buy the brand of tires that they prefer. I would lower the price and let the new buyer purchase the tires of his choice.

RE: Shipping toad from Portland, OR to central NC

From Oregon to North Carolina for a running automobile that is being shipped with normal delivery is about $900. Auto Transport Quote I've shipped several automobiles around the country and there are a few ways that you can save some money. If you can deliver it to the truck terminal that saves some money. If it can be picked up at the truck terminal, that can also save some money, especially if the nearest terminal is several miles away. Shipped on an open car carrier rather than an enclosed trailer also saves some money. Almost all of the carriers that I used provided me with GPS tracking of the transporter. I did use one private carrier that delivered one of my vehicles in their own personal enclosed trailer. This was a husband/wife team and their cost was only a little bit lower than the large transporter. The difference was they picked the vehicle up at my house and they delivered it right to the Texas museum that bought the car.

RE: Dragging up driveway

Casters mounted on the frame rails might work fine. A caster, or skid, mounted on the trailer hitch could easily overstress the design limit of that hitch. Hitches are designed for a tongue weight which is a down force and anything pushing up on them, especially if it is the extreme force of supporting the rear of the coach, could easily cause cracks that may show up the next time you are pulling your toad.

RE: What Dish Are You Using For Satellite TV

rgatijnet1, Sent you a PM. Thanks. Chuck The KingDome is going to be picked up by Chuck tomorrow. :) Tested the KingDome today and it works perfectly. Darn it. Now I will have to mount it on the roof. A big thanks to Ron. Now if I can only get him to come and install it:) Chuck Fantastic! Glad it is still working. It has been quite a few years since I replaced it with the HD dish. I guess you could always use it as a portable if you can't convince Susan to install it on the roof. :B

RE: Water pouring out from under the coach

If you would have just topped off your fresh water tank there is an overflow hose on some coaches that will continue to siphon water out of the tank.
