RE: Hit my mirror. Need help removing mirror housing.

I'm only guessing, but can you take the arm off, is there a nut on the bottom so you can take the arm off. then perhaps that will allow you to take the black housing off to expose mounting nuts underneath. Or does that black housing pop off, maybe with a screw driver, carefully prying it?

RE: Travel to Mammoth, CA in Winter

I've driven my motor home over 88 several times towing my car, I would be very careful doing it during the winter. Snow mounds along the road makes an already narrow road even more narrow. Can you do it during the winter yes, but like others have said, keep an eye on the weather and road conditions. 395 heading south can be the same way. Personally, I'd plan on taking the southern route, better and safer road conditions during the winter. Might take a couple hours longer, but what the heck. Enjoy your trip. Brian

RE: Air dump.

Try hitting the auto level, and see if that dumps the bags. if it does, then start up and refill them, and then try the dump switch again.

What glue to use?

I have a piece of trim coming loose on the side of my motorhome. It appears to be held on by adhesive. It's an 04 Fleetwood Revolution. Any idea what kind of adhesive to use to glue it back. It's a trim strip that is about 2 inches high, about 1/2 inch thick and runs most of the length of the motor home. It appears to be the same material as the side of the motorhome. An area about 3 inches is lifting. Thanks Brian

RE: Roadmaster Spare Tire Carrier

I was giving some serious thought to carrying a spare tire awhile back. I called a truck tire store and the manager told me, he wouldn't spend the money on a used tire, that I may never need. His reasoning was, I may never need it, and it will deteriorate in 7 years or so. Plus my tire size is very common and he said I shouldn't have a problem with any road side service having one. After talking to him, I decided against it. I thank him for his honesty.

RE: 2003 Holiday Rambler Neptune

Make sure you test drive it over various road conditions. If it's on the R4R chassis, they're known for a very rough ride. Don't think that just because it has air suspension it will ride nicely. They typically ride very harsh. As mentioned above, make sure you check that the trailing arms have been upgraded also. The replacement arms should look like this. http://sourcerv.com/trailing_arm

RE: Bodie CA

Thanks for the replies. Based on what I've read, I won't be taking my motor home there, I'll drive my car. Thanks for the feedback. Brian

Bodie CA

How is the road into Bodie? Is it good enough to drive my 38 ft diesel pusher, towing a vehicle? Have never been there. Any comments about visiting that area? Thanks Brian

RE: Holiday Rambler Neptune?

If it has the R4R chassis, it will ride very rough. I would test drive it over a variety of road surfaces. Ride is very harsh, to put it mildly. Yes, make sure the trailing arms have been replaced, and not replaced with Roadmaster arms, but with the Source Engineering Trailing Arms. They also offer a ride enhancement kit for the R4R Chassis. My experience was it still rode very rough.

RE: HELP! Low tunnel question

The road on the south side of the Columbia is 4 lane hiway, you won't have any problem on that side. I've driven both sides, and personally, I think the south side is a prettier drive.

RE: Fogged dual pane window solution for $60

Best thing to do, is replace the dual panes with a thicker single pane. There's a company that does that now. The price is about the same as having the dual panes redone, and the insulation factor is nearly the same. The best part, they won't ever fog. Dual panes in an RV will eventually leak. The biggest window we have is single pane..........the windshield.

RE: Best vented washer dryer combo

I have a Splendide 2100XC vented and wouldn't be without it. The only negative is, you can't do big loads like at home, and it hakes +/- 3 hours to do a load.

RE: DP going up and down mountains

For what it's worth. I seldom if ever down shift my DP when going down a hill. I just turn the exhaust brake on and usually will hold the desire speed. If needed you can select the "down" arrow and down shift. I believe the gear you have selected is displayed. As others have mentioned, once at the bottom of the hill if you have down shifted just push the "D" button and you're transmission will be back to automatic. Sometimes going up a hill, if the transmission keeps going back and forth between gears, usually 4th and 5th, I'll use the keypad and select a gear, usually 4th, but it depends. When at the top, just select "D" and you'll be set again, in automatic. The exhaust brake is your best friend when descending. Just click it on when you start down a grade and you'll feel it kick in, might take a few seconds. Some people leave the exhaust brake on all the time. Personally, I turn it on when I need it. If you leave it on, every time you take your foot off the accelerator it will engage and start slowing you down. I'll turn it on at the top of a grade, usually at the speed I want to maintain, and it seems to keep you in the vicinity, speed wise. If I'm in the flats, I'll turn it on as I'm approaching a stop sign or signal light to slow down. As mentioned in another posting, if planned right, you'll probably only need to use your brakes below about 15 mph or so to complete the stop. With an exhaust brake, regular brakes use is minimized. Turn it on when driving in various conditions, and you'll feel how it works, and you'll end up loving it. I don't think you'll ever wear brakes out on a motor home if used properly. One more item, if descending a grade, and you do need to use your regular brakes, press on them some what firmly for about 5 seconds and then ease off, this will typically slow you down 5-10 mph and will aid in avoiding over heating the brake. Don't use the brakes for long period of times, what is commonly called riding the brakes. Good Luck, and don't be overly concerned about the grades, your diesel pusher will do fine. Might slow down going up a hill, but you'll get there, and the exhaust brake will minimize the need for braking going down the other side. Enjoy your trip.

RE: Downsizing from diesel pusher

Downsized from a 41 foot DP to a 32 foot gas Class A. Lasted less then a year. Sold it and now have a 38 foot diesel pusher. I'm set and won't change, love it.

RE: Running Both Air Conditioners On 30 Amp System

I use to have a 30 amp motor home. Under "just the right conditions" you could run both AC's, but that was rare, you certainly couldn't count on it. I did some research and found a box to install that allowed both AC's to run. I can't remember the name, but do some searching and I'm sure you'll find it. If I remember right the generator is wired like a 50 amp service so there's separate legs to each AC, and you split off one of those lines into this box and then plug into two separate outlets. I believe that's how it was, like I said can't remember, but it did work, and was somewhat easy to install.

RE: Cat C9 Engine

Great motorhome, Have it checked out, which I'd do no matter what the mileage. If everything checks out, the mileage is nothing to be concerned about.

RE: Broke down days from home, what would you do?

ANSWER >> RV MOBILE REPAIR Don't know where you are leaving your RV for 6 WEEKS but I sure would not. I full time RV, I don't even have a home to drive or fly back to!! My RV's are repaired the 'same day' they break and/or need repairs right at what ever CG I am at at the time. If you are in a CG ask the manager who they use for mobile repair. They come out to you, repair the RV and you are done and have a working RV. 99.999% of the time it is repaired right at your site within ONE DAY. Their trucks are so full of RV parts that in 7 years on the road I only had to wait for an ordered part once....and that was for a full awning replacement. Which BTW arrived the next morning and was installed by noon! If a part does have to be ordered (unlike a dealership) an RV Mobile repair guy with have the part the 'next day' and be back on that SAME day to install it. And guess what? For half the price of what you will pay at a dealership AND get 10 times more the experience of a tech. There is NO reason to go to an 'RV dealership' and/or leave your RV for months on end. None, nada, zip, zero reasons to use those whoremongers. :B When we broke down, failed hydraulic pump it took just shy of 30 days to get the pump. This was at a truck repair shop. So you folks that think you will be on the road the next day are in for a huge surprise. This was not the shops fault and I was on the road soon after the part arrived. Pickup. Was this the pump for the jacks? Why not just drive it home, and have it repaired there?

Broke down days from home, what would you do?

I read on here the other day about someone being broke down, and it was going to be 6 weeks before the problem could be fixed. I got to thinking what I would do. I'm a single, traveling with my dog, and I tow the only car I own. So, flying home, in my case, wouldn't be a good option, because I wouldn't have wheels when I got home, plus I'd have to get my dog home. Say it was a 4 day trip from home where one broke down, that would be a lot of extra driving to get home, and then have to go back a few weeks later to retrieve motor home. Would towing be option? or hiring someone to drive the RV home after it was fixed be an option? I have no idea what costs would be involved. I'm just curious what you might do, or suggestions you might have.
