RE: Will that ladder and roof hold a 300-pounder?

Carry one of this type of telescopic ladder with you. Once collapsed, they easily fit into the basement of any coach and they will support 300 pounds without a failure. 12 1/2 foot telescopic ladder

RE: stuff needing repair

There are no guarantees. Your Class B could breakdown and leave you stranded just as easily as any Class A. Everyone here has had some issues while traveling but we all agree that the rewards of RVing far exceed any hassles that we have had while on the road. You can stay at home and not have to worry about any problems or you can go out and enjoy this great country and deal with things as they happen.

RE: Louisiana "handgun carry" laws

Remember that signs posted by private businesses that say no guns allowed, can be ignored. Private individuals cannot change the law but they can ask you to leave, which is why you need to conceal your weapon.

RE: Rear view camera wrong side viewing? What's wrong?

There is a setting that "reverses" the image. It might say "mirror" image. It should be on your monitor. My current monitor the button is on the rear of the monitor but I think one of my monitors had it on the front.

RE: Fuel Stops

As long as you don't wait until the last few miles of range to get fuel, there should be no problem. Many stop for fuel somewhere around 1/2 to 1/4 remaining fuel. That way they have the choice of several stations without being stuck with the last station available before running out of fuel. I've filled up at some small stations that had plenty of room for a big rig if you happened to go to them when the pumps were empty. Basically, if you are below 1/2 tank, and you see a station with easy access, stop and top off the tank.

RE: Norcold $33 million class action lawsuit

Not unusual for a company to be charged a large fine for wrongdoing, from some government agency, and NONE of the money is given to the customers. The government collects the money for something that affected consumers. For instance Google received a $22.5 million fine from the FTC for violating online privacy.(as a side note, it only took Google 5 hours to earn the $22.5 Million back) The Google users received nothing.

RE: allison 1000 transmission

Probably a good idea to change out the fluid, especially if it has turned a little brown and not a nice clear cherry red. A warning on the dash means that the fluid was seriously overheated. If you change the fluid, switch to Transynd fluid and this will make your tranny run a little cooler.

RE: Load and Inflation Table

Here you go. Inflation chart Looks like 110 PSI maximum.

RE: Exploding coach battery!

The battery was over charged and the outgassing of Hydrogen caused the battery to explode. Happens when the battery is being charged in a compartment without enough air circulation.

RE: Norcold $33 million class action lawsuit

When there is a manufacturer's recall of a product, NOT a class action lawsuit, the consumer's usually do all right. We just had a several year old dehumidifier recalled, along with millions of others, and we received the FULL retail price of that unit. Dehumidifier recall In this case, Norcold is admitting no fault and this $33 million is just hush money to prevent any future litigation. The difference is whether or not the manufacturer wants to do the right thing or not.

RE: Norcold $33 million class action lawsuit

For every class action suit that I have seen, you can opt in or out. Find out which attorney's office is handling the class action suit and contact them to find out if you are a part of the suit and if you want to participate or go it alone. Don't expect a big payout. Most class action lawsuits make big money for the lawyers and peanuts for the victims.

RE: question on trade in

You need to look at the total bottom line. In some states you only pay sales tax on the sales price of the new vehicle MINUS your trade in value, which can be a significant savings. I bought one coach because the previous owner did not like the trade-in value given by Lazy Days. SIX MONTHS later, after paying storage and insurance on TWO rigs, they finally sold it to me for $9,000 less than they owed on the loan. They had to pay the additional $9000 to the bank. Besides paying more in taxes, storage, and insurance, they were stuck down here trying to get rid of the second coach. Don't make a decision based on saving a few bucks that could cost you thousands in the long run.

RE: Check your turbo outlet pipe.

Seems lucky that you did not have a fire.

RE: 1st time using Coach-Net

The fact that you can talk with a technician is the main thing that sets CoachNet apart from the other road service providers. Glad things worked out for you and I hope the repair is inexpensive.

RE: Pretrip anxiety... Is everything goint to work?

In many years of RVing, I can't remember a trip where I did not have at least one MINOR problem creep up that needed attention. These usually consisted of a bulb burning out, or something insignificant that was easily taken care of without interrupting our schedule. The only time I had a major problem was just after we had passed through Dutch John, UT. We had not planned on stopping there but that is where we broken down. There happened to be a service facility there and CoachNet called them to check out our coach. The mechanic got us running again and we drove back to the RV park in Dutch John since we needed some parts for a permanent repair. We ended up spending one week in the area and we are glad that we did. It seems that people come from all over the world to fish the Green River near Dutch John. The surrounding area is beautiful and full of wildlife. It is now on our list of places to go back to, all because we had a problem. The point is, if and when you have a problem, you just deal with it and make the best of it. There is no use worrying about the unknown.

RE: LED Mod wih pics

I did mine similar to yours using the roll of LED's. One thing that I did find out is that the adhesive did not hold that long, even tho I did clean the light fixture before attaching them. I ended up putting a few dabs of clear silicone on each strip to hold them in place. Nice job.

RE: AirTab

what you pay for that stuff will buy a lot of gas. The Air-Tabs cost me $225, which won't even fill my tank ONCE. If I was worried about cost, I wouldn't be RVing. For the improvement in handling, they are worth many times their cost.

RE: Lug Nut for wheel rim chrome simulator

This place should have what you need. 4 Trucks You may have to call about the outer lug nut. Measure the size, from flat to opposite flat, before you call.

RE: Stumped by Generator

Push the battery boost switch at the same time you are trying to start the generator. Switching in all of your batteries might help in some cases and costs you nothing.

RE: AirTab

Well, here's another lying fool. I've been using AirTabs since about 2006 and they do work to increase stability. As others have said, the effect on fuel mileage is small enough as to be undiscernible to me. However, they are worth the additional stability on the road. These type devices work on airplanes to provide lift benefits on the wings. The principle is the same to provide stabilizing benefits on our rigs.Don't know if you are a lying fool or not, that's your call. But the impact of such devices on a plane have nothing to do with any impact such devices may or may not have on a slow traveling MH. However, I am really glad that they do keep the rear of the MH or whatever cleaner, I guess to some that is worth a couple hundred bucks. :B I think that you need to gather some information about aerodynamic drag and vortec generators. We are not talking about a WING used on high speed cars on the salt flats to provide downforce. We are talking about surface friction and breaking a boundary layer of air flow. Air tab like devices are used on airplane wings to modify the STALLING characteristics, which can happen as low as 30 MPH or lower, on some airplanes. I have used much smaller(1" x 1") stick-on vortec generators on my own planes and they do indeed work at slow air speeds and can be designed to offer different lift requirements at high speeds. Don't confuse something that reduces surface friction with something that is designed to provide downforce to improve the stability of a high speed vehicle.
