RE: Leaving for Yellow Stone NP on 8/4 how is I-84

going to Yellow Stone NP in a 2000 39 foot DP Bounder from Vancouver WA 8/4 going to try and get into Yellowstone Grizzly RV Park in wast Yellowstone. Is there anything I should know, either on the road or at the RV park. Second thought, we are during our Lab with us. Has any body used a day kennel in West Yellowstone? I understand pets are not allowed in the park Pets ARE allowed in the park, as well as all other National Parks, and are welcome anywhere except in buildings and on the hiking trails. We have a large 150 pound dog and it was not any problem at all.

RE: Rv Insurance

Here is one place to try. With my excellent record, they were the least expensive by far and they write policies for all vehicles including RV's. I have an agreed value type policy as well as coverage for interior personal items for less than $350/year. Auto Owners Insurance

RE: Diesel engine question

This past week I started up a 10 wheel truck with a GM 6-71 engine that has sat for over 10 years. It started in less than two turns, aired up and moved it. No way would you do that with a gas engine. Wrong!!! I've restored many vehicles that sat for as long as 50 years and could still get the gasoline engine fired up after cleaning out the fuel system. The gas engine itself will last as long as a diesel engine when neglected. The fuel does degrade at different rates with the new fuels, both diesel and gasoline, degrading much sooner than the older fuel.

RE: Diesel engine question

The engines on an RV will stand up better to sitting unused than the rest of the coach. Things like the fuel, brakes, belts, generator, and many other things do better if they are used. Very seldom will you see an actual internal engine problem caused by a vehicle sitting for several months at a time.

RE: Warranty Maintanance requirements?

No auto dealer is allowed BY LAW to require you to bring the vehicle to them for service. They can require receipts and some documentation that proves the service was done but they cannot prevent you from doing your own service. H.R.2057 -- Motor Vehicle Owners Right to Repair Act of 2009.

RE: How Ironic....

Unhitch the trailer and drive like the wind away from that thing.

RE: Any regrets going from Gas to Diesel?

No regrets going from gas to diesel, back to gas, back to diesel, and now back to gas again. Each one has it's advantages and disadvantages and when I find another floor plan I like, who knows what is going to be powering it. Personally I don't care what the power plant is because I have found that each of them has gotten me to the top of any of the Western mountain highways and back down again, pulling a toad..

RE: Black Holding Tank Heating Pad coming loose on my Motor Home

There are very few adhesives that will stick to the polyethylene or polypropylene plastic that your black tank is made of. Check with the maker of your heating pad.

RE: What is a reasonable maintenance wait time

Thanks for all of the advice. I heard from the dealer yesterday evening, my coach is now ready. They and to order and replace a relay to fix the charging problem. Not sure why they didn't check this before letting it sit waiting for a slide part. At any rate, I will soon pick it up. Someone mentioned asking to get the warranty extended. I had thought about that, what are the odds of that happening? The warranty comes from Thor, not the dealer, correct? Actually all you may need to do is have an attorney remind the selling dealer of Illinois Lemon laws. Here is the link: Illinois new vehicle laws Here are some excerpts from the law and who it applies to: "New vehicle" means a passenger car, as defined in Section 1-157 of the Illinois Vehicle Code, a motor vehicle of the Second Division having a weight of under 8,000 pounds, as defined in Section 1-146 of that Code, a vehicle purchased by a fire department, a fire protection district, or a township fire department, and a recreational vehicle, except for a camping trailer or travel trailer that does not qualify under the definition of a used motor vehicle, as set forth in Section 1-216 of that Code. (815 ILCS 380/3) (from Ch. 121 1/2, par. 1203) Sec. 3. Failure of vehicle to conform; remedies; presumptions. (a) If after a reasonable number of attempts the seller is unable to conform the new vehicle to any of its applicable express warranties, the manufacturer shall either provide the consumer with a new vehicle of like model line, if available, or otherwise a comparable motor vehicle as a replacement, or accept the return of the vehicle from the consumer and refund to the consumer the full purchase price or lease cost of the new vehicle, including all collateral charges, less a reasonable allowance for consumer use of the vehicle. (2) the vehicle has been out of service by reason of repair of nonconformities for a total of 30 or more business days during the statutory warranty period. In any case, the next step is yours. Apparently you do have legal recourse according to Illinois law. At the vaery least you should be able to get a warranty extension. Every state has different lemon laws so what works in Illinois does not necessarily mean that it is the same in another state. In many states, recreational vehicles are not covered.

RE: Motorhome weighed today. - Need input

The Public scale operated by the Dept of Highways near Parksville ,BC has enough room along side to weigh the Left side Front and rear ,independently. Then we drive around and reweigh the entire Coach. It's simple to subtract the left from the total to come up with the independent weights. We only go there when the Scale is closed to commercial traffic. The scale is actually turned on 24/7! I'm pretty sure that Most ,Government run scales are set up the same way! Unless the coach is perfectly level when you pull in off to the side of the scale, the weights given are not accurate.

RE: Motorhome weighed today. - Need input

Hard to tell until the coach is weighed with it loaded like it would be for a trip with all of your food, clothing, pets, tools, FULL fuel, and anything else you usually take on a long trip. Even then it is only a guess without four wheel weights. With only axle weights, you can divide by two but you should add extra because one tire WILL be carrying more weight than another on the same axle.

RE: ABS Warning Light

The sensors just pull right out. Might be a little tight but they will slide right out. The electrical connection is about 2' from the sensor. Use your meter and you can read the resistance on your sensors. The one that reads different is bad. A good sensor will read about 1000 ohms. If they all read OK then just clean them and reinsert them on each wheel. Be sure to push them all of the way in until they will not go any further.

RE: Tire question

If you are near Orlando, there are numerous TRUCK tire shops that will come to you and change out the tires. You can even order tires online and have them delivered to you and then contact someone to come and change them out. If you use the balancing BEADS, you can balance them on the spot with no machines needed.

RE: route

Are you just wanting to make the drive in the shortest time or do you want to stop and take advantage of the various sites along the way?

RE: What is a reasonable maintenance wait time

I have made APPOINTMENTS at dealers before and always asked them to schedule it when they could actually do the work. Leaving it sit on their lot for longer than it takes to do the work, if it is still drivable, is unacceptable. I would definitely ask for an extension of the warranty for the time that it is sitting. In addition, if it is still usable, I would pick it up and ask them to call me when the parts are in and they can work on it.

RE: Is it really too far to walk to the bathroom at a rest area?

And don't forget - there are a lot of RVers who travel with empty fresh water tanks (to save on fuel). There you go, save steps to rest area rest room. Every RV has a built in urinal, never thought about that. I knew the answer would show up sooner or later. Except I think the point was that those RV owners would NOT use their own toilet because they have no fresh water to flush. Actually, who cares? Most all of us have been in the ocean at some time and we all know what fish and humans do in that water. :B

Of course some people do have dogs that will pee anywhere.
