RE: FMCA Vote. A Poll and your thoughts.

I am a non-member and have always felt along this line regarding FMCA: H) I am already a member of other similar organizations and see no need to join. Lou 05 Travel Supreme Envoy

RE: Selling - Ohio to PA - how to get temp plates?

We purchased our RV in NC. The seller took us to the DMV office where they provided what we needed (30 day temporary plate) and transferred the title. We did need to show we had NC insurance so we addressed that with our insurance company before we went down there. After we got home we change the insurance and reregistered in our home state. I'm sure every state is different so I would check with the DMV before hitting the road. Lou 05 Travel Supreme Envoy

RE: Do Slides scratch or disrupt Pergo flooring?

Regarding the scratching, on my rig there are several large (approx. 10" wide) slide rollers that travel over the flooring. The rollers over carpet are metal and the ones over the ceramic tile are made from a hard rubber. If you have a similar setup, I would look into changing them all to a rubber material. Good question about the snap flooring separating, esp. if it is floating over a flexible mat. I would look into an engineered plank flooring that can be glued down. Good luck.

RE: Veteran's Day

Happy Veterans Day to all. I served 6 years in the US Navy (75-81) and a majority of that time was on-board a fast attack submarine, USS Memphis (SSN-691). I didn't believe it at the time, but it was one of the better moves in my life. Lou 05 Travel Supreme Envoy

RE: How many miles on your Cat C7

I checked my valve lash at 40K and it took little to no adjustments, so no noticeable change in performance. I have good engine access from the top and the job was pretty easy. Lou 05 Travel Supreme Envoy

RE: Thinking of a pusher

As Bruce pointed out, hung wall construction would be my first priority. I also would avoid EDPM rubber, but wouldn't rule out a rig with a Brite Tek or a TPO roof material. Those materials are just as good as any solid fiberglass roof and probably better than the thin fiberglass some manufactures use. Good luck in your search. Lou 05 Travel Supreme Envoy

RE: New A/C's cheaper from sites other than camping world...

Like with anything else, you always need to shop around and include both shipping and sales tax charges. I purchased three window awnings a few years back and at the time Camping World provided the best deal over all the online vendors mentioned above. It appears most places change their prices and shipping charges daily so no one place is always the best. Lou 05 Travel Supreme Envoy

RE: Diesel fuel filter priming pump

On my CAT C-7 I install both filters dry and manually pump until the handle is difficult to move. I then secure the handle (screw it into the housing) and start the engine. I've never had any starting issues using this method. Good luck. Lou 05 Travel Supreme Envoy

Congrats and I agree with the others, Newmar is one of the better rigs out there. Lou 05 Travel Supreme Envoy

RE: Tires in storage

Michelin specifically states do not store your tires on concrete. They recommend a barrier of plywood, cardboard or plastic as Trackrig suggested. Lou 05 Travel Supreme Envoy

RE: Norcold class action

I received a $137.16 check (first of four) for my Norcold 1200LRIM. Anyone know why the difference in what some of us received? Lou 05 Travel Supreme EnvoyIt was all based on points.. Did you own it, do you still own it, did you pay to fix it, has it had no problems, etc. The checks were based on these points I purchased the rig when it was three years old and still own it. I did supply the S/N and had the "shut it down on high temp" recall box installed. It was working, but based on the problems discussed pretty much everywhere, I wasn't going to wait for it to fail or, worst yet, catch on fire so I replaced the fridge with a residential unit that I installed myself. Maybe (no...most likely) my memory is fading, but I don't recall answering any questions when I first got involved with the class action suit. In any case, any payment was more than I was expecting so no complaints here. Lou 05 Travel Supreme Envoy

RE: BF Goodrich tires

In July of 2015 I replaced my (overpriced & cracked) Michelins with Bridgestone Ecopia R283 tires (295/75R22.5, Load Range H, 16 ply). I only have about 6K miles on them, but no issues and the total cost was $2891 out the door. The dealer also reimbursed me $120 ($60/tire) for the front two, but the back four had too many cracks to be used for recaps. Lou 05 Travel Supreme Envoy

RE: :h - TOOL's Let's talk TOOL's - :@

I always joke that I carry enough tools to rebuild the engine on the side of the road if I needed to and I'm not so sure that it is a joke. However, the tools I use the most are simple screwdrivers for screws that occasionally back out due to road movement/vibration and the multimeter. Lou 05 Travel Supreme Envoy

RE: Massachusetts EZPass Transponder Mounting on my Class A

Mine is at the bottom center (about the same height as it would be in a car/pickup truck) and we have had no issues. Based on the responses here it appears both locations work fine. Lou 05 Travel Supreme Envoy

RE: Generator

Many RV's have an auto start on the generator at a preselected battery voltage. A bit more info is necessary. Lou 05 Travel Supreme Envoy
