RE: Battery weight

I am looking for a deep cycle battery that I can use camping as well as use on the trolling motor for my canoe. Weight is the main issue. I can deal with any issues as far as battery life or how long it will run the trolling motor. The main issue is weight, so what is the lightest battery out there. I can't spend hundreds of $$$ but not looking for the cheapest thing out there either. Well if you don't want to spend hundreds on a deep cycle lithium battery that is the lightest on the market than your stuck with lead acid or AGM type that is heavy, it would still be better to have a battery for the camper and the trolling motor, 2 battery's surly cant break your bank right.. :W

RE: Winnebago cold air leaks

Well the nights have been cold here in Nevada as late, my Bounder is also colder up near the front than the back, they don't insulate the front area under the dash very well in most motorhomes, I have seen some people use thick blankets and place them over the dash during the winter months for insulation, also all those windows up front add to the cold coming in as well, just wait come July/August you will be complaining hot the RV is even while the a/c's are running..

RE: Windows 10 nightmare won't connect to Jefa Tech Repeater

Windows 10 has issues with connecting devices, my wife accidentally hit the upgrade 10 button on her computer and it disconnected our fax/scan machines we use to scan and send invoices for our business, so we had to call our tech guy in to get them to work with the computer, the windows 10 is difficult to connect with devices if you don't understand how it works like myself..

RE: Opinions on Class A Quality

Hi everyone, I'm selling my 24ft C and moving up in length to +/- 35ft and was thinking A because I will be full timing. My budget is around 120-140K and of course I'm looking to get the best quality for my money. Wanted to hear personal thoughts/experiences on brands. Also, I was thinking of consigning to sell the 24ft C. So far I've read positive things from people on Facebook. Anyone not have a good experience selling this way? TIA, any opinion welcome. Fleetwood has always been good to me, I am on my 3rd Fleetwood, pre bankruptcy Fleetwood's, I have a 08 Bounder 33 ft on a Ford chassis and has been great so far, only paid $69,900 for it 30 months ago, could go used around 5 years old with little use and save $70,000, don't buy a used diesel the repairs/maintenance will eat you alive.. Go slightly used gas motorhome, save money and you wont loose thousands the day you buy it like a new one will.

RE: Chevy Workhorse parking brake electrical system

That is why I think the F53 chassis is so much better, no electronics to operate a emergency brake that can fail any where at anytime. Ford keeps it simple and that's why its better, 2006 and newer that is..

RE: Las Vegas parking - changes?

Parking fee also has a lot to do when another casino have big events and people park at other casinos parking lot when the other is full, they loose business when the parking lot is full from people parking and not using the casino.. As a local I will tell you its no longer cheap here in Vegas anymore, eating on the strip cost a lot now days, the cheap Vegas days are gone..

RE: Advise on 2016 Fleetwood Flair 26D?

Flair has been Fleetwood's lower end class A, I owned a 2002 Flair 25y, I now own a 2008 Bounder and the quality is better in the Bounder but I still never had any issues with the Flair, as to the Ford V-10 its a great motor/trans and don't expect mpg to be over 8 mpg unless your going down hill.

RE: Carpeted ceiling

Foam carpet cleaner will also do a good job and will not soak thru and losing the glue, you will need to use some elbow grease to work the foam cleaner into the carpet.

RE: Day/Night Shades problem raising

First of all, I do not believe it is a "string"problem... We have a problem raising the Night part of our day/night shades. This has been an issue since we bought the Motorhome (used). The "day" shades go up and down nicely, the night shades go down ok, but do not stay "pleated" as they go up! We are constantly having to manually "fix" many of the pleats to make it go up. By fixing, I mean pulling them from both sides to straightened them. They are Day/Night shades. The "Day" shades are a soft cloth (semi-transparent) and the "Night" shades are a darker, paper-like material. Anyone have this issue? And can anyone give me any suggestions? I hate to buy new ones as they are not cheap. Thank you in advance, Matt Best bet is to replace those old day/night shades, they never go up and down with ease, I went with Allen Roth roller shades from Lowes with the EZ-lift clutch, its so easy to raise and lower the blinds now, only need 2 fingers to do the job.. http://www.lowes.com/projects/decorate-and-entertain/window-shades-bg/project

RE: RV value in an accident

So, I just got hit last week. The damage does not look bad, but the body shop and the mechanic both say totaled. The door is too bad to fix, and the front axle is too bent to fix for what ins would pay. My concern is there anyway to get the real value of the RV from the ins company? They want to pay minimal and the RV components are worth more alone. It will cost 3 times that to replace my RV even considering its age If you never had it appraised and insured as a RV at the appraisal value than you have very little to go on, insuring it as a old box truck you will only get that valve, however you can have access to all the improvements you made to the box truck, so I would make arrangements to get those removed..

RE: Need info on mid 90's p30 or 32 chassis

Jeez he just wanted a simple answer, 80 to 90 psi would be the range you will want to use in 19.5 tires, I run 85 in my fronts and 90 in back.. If a 110 lb max tire and a upper weight limit MH it would be severely under inflated. Giving info on tire inflation without knowing what tire the guy runs IS DANGEROUS. The ONLY GOOD ANSWER is run at the max pressure on the tire UNLESS you weigh the rig and use the tire inflation guide for your tire. If you note he has a 34 foot motorhome with one slideout on a P-32 chassis, his weight is about the same as mine so he will only need 80 to 90 psi on 19.5 tires.. Most 19.5 tires x 6 tires has a gross carrying weight of 27,000 lbs.

RE: reservations

San Diego and Yosemite you might need reservations but not the other spots most of the time.

RE: 2003 Itasca Sunrise 32V workhorse

Thanks for that more accurate info tropical36, that's why I think Fords F-53 chassis 2006 and newer was even better by just going with a 5 speed on all F-53 chassis with more HP and torque than the Workhorse without the brake issues.. Now the F-53 has 6 speeds.

RE: 2003 Itasca Sunrise 32V workhorse

I didn't think they used any other transmission than the Allison 1000 with the 8.1 engine. Hmmm, learn something new every day. if its an 8.1 its an allison tranny Not So, I had a 2002 Flair with a workhorse chassis and 8.1 with just a 4 speed GM transmission, if it has air bags with front coils than its the lighter duty chassis with the GM 4L80E transmission, in the early years of workhorse it was this way not sure about the later years.

RE: Passenger pickup at McCarren Airport with class A motorhome

There is plenty of room to pickup in a class A at that airport but parking might not be available.

RE: Warning about United Shades

I had custom Alan Roth shades from Lowes, the kind the auto roll up when giving a slight tug, they fit inside the Fleetwood valance just fine, they were only 2 inch thick, when looking for new shades you must also check how thick it is in the frame when rolled up.
