RE: RV Drivers License

Is he "legal" going and picking it up prior to having the license? Do they have a learners permit type process? I see you have to do a driving test to get the license and I doubt that DMV has their own 42 motorhome for you to drive, so how do they work that out? No he will have no issues at all, the law is only 2 years old and many in Nevada today with RV's over this weight don't even know the new law, most highway patrol don't even know the new change, what I was told when someone goes in to get the new tags for plates on motorhomes over this weight will have to go see the desk and they will inform them of the new DMV law, anyways how would Florida even know Nevada's new law. The good change in the new law 2 years ago is they dropped the R rating for double/triple tow, any one can double tow with any license as long as your under 70 foot and all 3 total weight is under 26,001 lbs gross weight, I am 100 lbs over with my double tow but am not going to get the new non commercial license, I bet the highway patrol would never know my exact weight..

RE: Fleetwood Bounder Classic 34B

There is one question in regards to handling; with the load G tires, and stiff Bilsteins, any small bump, crack or joint in the road was like a big Bang. One stretch of freeway had so many cracks/joints, the nav unit on the dash was moving around some. Will Ride Rite airbags help with the absorption of this? I would think that they would help to 'cushion the blow' so to speak. If so, front, rear, or both. Any input here is greatly appreciated. Yep get rid of the bilsteins they are to stiff of shocks, get the Monroe RV shocks they are softer, also airbags will help as well. Example as to the shock websites, Bilsteins are gas charge at 360 psi and the Monroes are gas charged at 80 psi, guess what shock rides smoother..

RE: RV Drivers License

Was thinking about heading to Orlando,Florida to pick up a 42 foot Class A diesel. Thanks, Steve Go get it but when you get back to Vegas you will need to upgrade your license, you have to go to Loosey and Craig to the commercial DMV and take a test and test drive in your new motorhome and if you pass they will issue you a non commercial class A licenses.

RE: RV Drivers License

Nevada does require non commercial class "B'. Anything over 26,000 lbs. Yep that's a new rule in Nevada as of 2 years ago, but its a non commercial class A license, they even dropped the R rated for double tow, anyone can double tow up to 70 foot and under 26,000 lbs, over must have a class A license non commercial..

RE: Help Low Water Pressure In Motorhome

Finally, check your water FILTERS. A dirty filter will lessen water flow.... Let us know what you find....Dennis Holly Molly just as you posted this I just replaced my water filter, last time I put one in was a year ago and oh boy did my pressure come back, must have gotten so plugged that it killed my pressure 3 weeks ago, well now I will replace it every 6 months regardless..

RE: Hardwood Floor Installation or ???

Floating would be the best way to put hard floor down in a motorhome, I have floating hard floors in my house and its held up well after 10 years..

RE: How old is too old, subjective question but I want opinions

But you must also consider if you wait till motor dies than its worthless, if you want something newer this is the time to sell while its still running good and you can get some cash out of her..

RE: Help Low Water Pressure In Motorhome

take the end of the faucet off and try it, I have a small shut off valve in between the hose and RV inlet, no pressure going in or out, what would removing the hose do or are you talking about some faucet inside, don't understand ??

RE: Small Class A with Large FW tank

My 08 Bounder has 85 gal FW and my last motorhome 02 Flair had a 100 gal FW, seems Fleetwood liked to put in big FW tanks..

Help Low Water Pressure In Motorhome

My 08 Bounder water pressure has gone way down, started about 3 weeks ago, at the hose connection and at the 12 volt pump, so I changed the water pump and problem still there so I checked for leaks and found toilet valve leaking so I replaced that and my pressure is still down about 1/3 of what it was, when I 1st open a faucet the pressure comes out good but seconds later it drops, my showers are almost worthless, on the 12 volt water pump and from the hose bib connection. So does the Bounders have a internal water pressure regulator by chance, cant see where I got something in the line because screen at hose bib side is in good shape so nothing got past that, the screen on water pump side is also clean, has this ever happen to anyone..

RE: Selling a Motorhome for Dummies?

Owner to owner sells will never get top dollar, what you have done is enough, just sell it as it is, do let them know what you have done to it.. Besides that if you knew it was upside-down than why did you put $4000 into it, having a dealer do inspection and to bring it up might have been a slight rip off..

RE: 6 year update on running Michelin Super Singles

RE: Chassis/Walls/Roof Twisted after Collision on Class A MH?

Sounds like a total lost, your insurance company should handle this..

RE: workhorse or tritan

In the later years, Workhorse wasn't sitting still. After 2006 they then had the Allison six-speed transmission with overdrive and with the transmission grade brake for mountain use. Yes that's true, but still just a little better to have the Ford after 2006 since Ford is still making them and Workhorse and GM is not..

RE: workhorse or tritan

Get a Workhorse if RV is older than 2006, if 2006 and newer Ford F-53 would be a better deal, 2006 and newer Fords V-10 HP and torque was a little more than GM 8.1 and came with the 5 speed tow-haul transmission..

RE: Breaking laws F Y I

My toad is a Jeep not a trailer.. With that said I don't have brakes for the Jeep and don't need them, I also double tow with a small trailer with boat hooked to Jeep, it to has no brakes because its under 750 lbs, I do however make sure its connected good with safety chains/cables and my hitch is reinforced on motorhome and under my GVWR.. Flame Away... :p

RE: Sewage in Camper

Wow sorry for your problems OPer but at least you open my eyes, I always close the black tank valve but always leave the gray open, I am planning on leaving my motorhome in Reno for a while and fly back and forth to Vegas, now I will close all valves before leaving, would have never thought..

RE: RV Memory Foam Mattress

It depends on the type of sleeper you are as you said yourself. I prefer soft mattresses, they keep me relaxed on the road. I have a Tempurpedic at home and I am looking to get something similar to that for my RV. Im going to ask the store I got the first mattress from tomorrow and see if they can give me any affordable prices and suitable sizes for the RV mattress and keep you posted. Maybe try the Brentwood 12" HD Memory Foam Special RV Replacement Mattress, its in the link above, comments on Amazon is its on the soft side, I went with the Dynasty because it was listed on the firm side..
