A Different Tire Question / Research

Rookie RVer :C here with a different tire question / research.........is there a such thing as a "quiet tire" for Class A motor home? I understand tire size, what the numbers mean, the year, etc. but I want to invest in quality "quiet tires". I want to get a smooth, quiet ride instead of a rough truck tire type of ride. Is there a such thing? Plan to purchase six tires some time this upcoming week; no later than the weekend. Also, does the function of the shocks contribute to what I want to achieve....."smooth, quiet ride"? (2008 Winnebago Vistat 30B, weird tire size of 19.5) Thank you in advance.....

RE: Full Timing In a 30ft Class A

Rookie RVer :C here! My first Class A was a 26 footer, but it didn’t long for us (wife) to realize we NEEDED more living area. Moved up to a 30 footer and lovin it.....

Going Full-Time RVing Question

Rookie RVer :C here with probably the most serious question I’ve ever asked about rving. My dream, my goal, my passion is to live full-time. I believe I am taking the right steps to fulfill my dream......purchased a nice 2008 Winnebago Vista 30B, “growing small” with my stuff, becoming and learning to be very financially wise. I am sitting in motor home now in my backyard and can’t answer this question.........”what does living full-time rving truly mean?” My vision is to pull up anchor any time I want and go any place “she” (motor home) will take me. Is my thinking just a fantasy and not the “true” reality of full-time rving?

Need To Know Stuff....

Rookie RVer :C here! There are a lot of “need to know” stuff that would be useful to a Rookie like me. For example, I recently found out when using the stove to ALWAYS, ALWAYS have a window open and the hood fan on. This example would fall under safety “need to know” stuff. Where can I find “need to know” but not just limited to safety? I’m thinking quick tips, don’t forget to, here’s what I do, etc.? Or is this too broad of a question?

Keeping Her Plugged In

Rookie RVer :C here! My question for this week......is it okay to leave motor home plugged in (30 amp) while parked in driveway for long periods of time? No plans of getting on the road any time soon, but I do spend time “tinkering, repairing, and learning about” my new to me Winnebago Vista so I am in and out of it.

About The Slideout.....

Rookie RVer :C here! My last post I apologized for “temporarily” attempting to go to the other side with a bumper pull, but I am back with new to me Class A (Winnebago Vista 30B). This is my first slideout and I am kinda lost regarding upkeep, maintainance, do’s and don’ts. Is it okay to leave the slideout out for long periods of time? I keep it in backyard already set up and use it as ‘my get away space’. Am I asking for trouble by always leaving the slideout out, even during rainy days, cold days, windy days? Or is it best to retract the slideout each time I leave? I have been reading all manuals but have not come across anything that address this particular ‘do’s and/or don’ts. Thank you in advance!

I Apologize!

Rookie RVer :C here! Haven’t been here for awhile because I tried going to “the other side”. I sold my Class A (Rexhall Vision) with these wild ideas a travel trailer would be better for my wife and I............it wasn’t! I spent many sleepless nights gazing out the windows of the travel trailer missing my Class A. Well I couldn’t take it any more! I got up this morning, emptied my stuff out of the travel trailer and headed to the dealership. The third Class A I walked into called my name once I was inside. I got a really good deal on my trade in and drove away with 30 Winnabago Vista! I APOLOGIZE FOR ATTEMPTING TO GO TO THE OTHER SIDE!!!! I will NEVER do ‘DAT’ again...... Da Rookie RVer is back! :C

Question About Generator

Rookie Rver :C here! Sold our Class A to purchase a toy hauler (2018 Livin Lite QuickSilver 8.5x26). Please accept my apology if this question sounds crazy or need to be posted else where. The toy hauler is a 50amp that does not come with a generator. Can I install a 50amp generator, or purchase a stand alone that can provide the power needed (A/C, lights, electrical outlets, etc.) Am I asking for future trouble by having one installed after? Would it be best to purchase a toy hauler with generator already installed?

Maximum Driving Length and License

Rookie RVer here :C I want to know what the rules / law is regarding maximum driving length, and if specific driver's license required. After years, and years of begging I finally got permission to upgrade from the family's financial adviser. One idea is to get a toy hauler. The other idea is to get a Class A and a 16ft trailer (hold two ATVs). Do you know if there's a special driver's license requirement for......let's say.......a 30ft Class A towing a 16ft trailer? Where would I start to research this?

When Driving Class A What Route....

Rookie River :C here! Yes its been awhile and no I haven't disappeared. Question for ya.........when driving / traveling, especially a bigger Class A is it wise to follow truck route? My financial advisor has finally approved years and years request to upgrade. I had to sell the 26' Rexhall Vision first (hated to see her go) and now shopping for a bigger Class A. Didn't realize how big they are until now. I'm thinking about dangerous over-hangs, tree branchs, underpasses etc.
