RE: Question for S. Cal people

There is no way to avoid the mountains in Cali, just take the fastest and easiest rode and deal with it, I have traveled all over this state and there is no flat way around this state..

RE: Realistic Budget?

Was just thinking the months your going to in the west is our cooler months and you can do lots of dry camping and such to save the money, not sure were you are going but here in Cali now they have Indian casinos about 40 miles apart from each other and they always allow free camping in there parking lots.

RE: Realistic Budget?

Also if your going to be in a place for more than a week than get the weekly rate, it usually cost around $22 a night at some places.

RE: Realistic Budget?

Just a hint, I am on a trip now in Northern Cali and tonite I am dry camping in a Indian casino RV parking spot, FREE and cheap food and beer, and my last RV spot was $35 a night on the river.

RE: Realistic Budget?

January - April Trip $3,600.00 Camp Fees $1,457.00 Fuel $2,000.00 Admission $3,200.00 Hlth.Ins. $400.00 Wireless 440.00 Dish $200.00 Grooming $2,400.00 Food $800.00 Restaurant $400.00 Hobbies $ 15,397.00 Total 5200 mile trip. January 1st through April 30th. $3600 for 4 months of camping spot fees, ever thought about dry camping along the way and cheaper RV parks, where did you find those prices, and the other prices are just way out there, I could RV for a year and maybe have some change left over with your budget. Your cost adds up to $29 a mile..

RE: 2013 sightseer 33c wind noise

This is probably what you checked first, but are all the side window weep-hole covers in place? I had one come off in the middle of the drivers side window and it sounded like a wind tunnel. Yep I would start here as this post says, I would upload a pic but don't have one of the weep holes and the plastic cover for the weep holes, if they are missing it will be noisy..

RE: Class A - Gas vs Diesel

As a gas motorhome owner myself I would say save your money and go with a gas but if your going to be over 36 feet with 2 or more slides than a Diesel might be better but if your going to be under 36 foot than save your money and go with a gas it will get you there the same as a diesel but will leave more dollars in your pocket after the purchase.. Newer gas motorhomes are not like the ones 15 years ago..

RE: 2013 sightseer 33c wind noise

All class A motorhomes have some wind noise, how much of a wind noise do you have.

RE: Gas vs Diesel

There is other gas brands out there with better quality than the Coachmen for about the same price, Fleetwood would be a great start. In the long run gas will be cheaper to maintain.

RE: Faded Front Cap - Another Story

$400.00 to buff it out and apply 3 coats of clear coat, what a bargain, here in Vegas we pay that just have our RV washed and waxed..

RE: BANKS HEADERS for 2016 Winnebago 38Q

They show the Peak HP/Torque increases in 3200 to 4500 RPM range where it is needed the most in the hills. http://assets.bankspower.com/prod_inline_images/1429/Ford_MH_68L_chart_lg.jpg Carringb Quoted >> That's for the whole PowerPack package, not the headers alone. Whats the gain of the Stinger system? (Stinger = PowerPack - Headers) Headers alone does very little, you need cold air intake with more air flow and better exhaust flow system to make the headers do what its suppose to do..

RE: BANKS HEADERS for 2016 Winnebago 38Q

RE: not s hsppy camper

I have never took my RV to camping world or any RV repair shop as of yet, but to the post above about making appointment does not always work, I took a boat I had under factory warranty into Bass Pro shop for its one year service, did not want the boat to sit for weeks so I made appointment a week in advance, so I showed up and I still was told to leave it and it still took 2 weeks to change the freaking oil and inspect for proper operation for warranty, I never took it back to them and did the service myself after that..

RE: Why Do They Do This?

How do you know you need to replace the hose? Does water start leaking onto the floor instead of the drip pan? How do you know, just by looking at the plastic hose, my was dry rotted and 2-3 holes in it plus it crumbled when I removed it.

RE: what are you paying for insurance?

National Interstate is mine also, my cost is around $800.00 per year, could be a little less not sure, I also moved my Jeep I tow behind over to them from State Farm and it went up a extra hundred per year on that but thought it was best to have both under same insurance in case of a accident, they have the best rates with great coverage, they replaced my front window on motorhome and only cost me $100 and never raised my rates.

RE: Why Do They Do This?

Yea I replaced mine about 2 months ago, the old drain hose was just cheap plastic, I went over to Lowes and bought a quality kink free rubber hose and did the job myself, did not need to pull out fridg.

RE: Balance rear tires on class A?

They put Equal in the last set of tires I bought (truck shop). They're supposed to put special valve stems in that have a screen to prevent the Equal (basically sand) from clogging the valves. Next time I'll do beads. A couple of times over the winter I deflated a tire by checking the pressure and the vale got stuck. The tire installers never put the filter on mine so every time I check the pressure I 1st shoot air into the tire to blow the Equal out of the valve stem, works every time.

Gear Vendors Under/Overdrive for Fords 5 speed Trans

Was on GEAR Vendors website and they show they have the under/overdrive for the Ford 5 and 6 speed transmission, but it only shows up for the Ford trucks but not on the Ford motorhome ? Does anyone know why and is Gear Vendors worth it now with the extra gears or would this give us 5 speed trans the extra gears when needed.. http://www.gearvendors.com/f2wd4s.html Here is link to motorhomes and no listing for the 5 or 6 speed transmission.. http://www.gearvendors.com/mh4speed.html

RE: Double-towing and the livin's easy

Oregon, Washington and I think Canada does not allow double tow.. Sell the 5th/truck and get a motorhome and a stacker trailer and put the worries behind you.. http://i.imgur.com/Qb18ovwl.png]http://i.imgur.com/Qb18ovwl.png My length is only 51 foot and no special license required..
