RE: Ownership rv resorts ... Are they all the same?

We are with 5 - 8 years of retirement and looking at all ways to fulltime economically as possible. So the thought of owning a lot at a rv resort might be a option. There is a resort locally in our state that we've stayed at a few times, and have considered it as a possibility. Owning a RV lot with all the HOA due's, taxes, upkeep, etc, etc, would not be the economically way, traveling to warmer climates and finding low cost rental spots and boon docking while traveling would be cheaper. Unless you just want to stay in one place all the time than maybe it might be cheaper in the long run but what is the point of owning a RV if your not traveling around this big country.

RE: Ford 6.8 Y pipe mod opinions/ recommendations

Banks sales a better Y pipe for the Ford V-10, but wont do much by it self, will need headers, better flow thru exhaust and cold air intake to make more HP. No signle mod to the exhust does anything unless you start at the air filter intake and all the way thru to end of exhaust with upgarded mods than you can have the HP/Torque increase.

RE: 5 STAR TUNING X4

It does have HP/Torque improvements, not a lot but will make your motorhome do better in the hills where you need the HP/Torque the most. I have 5 Star with the full Banks Power Pac system on a 08 V-10 Bounder and I tow 6000 lbs with ease and still maintain around 6 to 7 mpg.

RE: Roadmaster Spare Tire Carrier

Never used one but saw a display at Quartzite AZ RV show and it looked built really good, I say do it, its always better to have a backup spare tire while traveling than not have a backup.

RE: E350 Super Duty Triton V10

We are back for some more help trying to sort out issues with this camper which has sat for a couple of years unused by our in-laws. The vehicle makes a tick, tick, ticking noise on start up when it's cold - we have travelled from Phoenix beginning of June with no issue with this, however we are now in Anchorage, Alaska and it happens almost daily. Could it be oil not getting to tappets/lifters and is it a concern ? Cheers Don't get cheated by a starving mechanic, go to a muffler repair shop and have them check the exhaust manifold, sounds more like a exhaust leak, if it checks out OK than drain the oil and add 6 quarts of transmission fluid and run motor at idle for a hour than drain trans fluid in motor and fill with oil. Trans fluid in motor lubricates while cleaning out all gunk, don't forget the oil filter.

RE: paint

I have a 2005 37a pace arrow and trying to find touch up paint for the color mocha metallic #745 476Im.Any help would be appreciated. thank you. You also need to know the maker of the paint, like Dupont, etc, paint code number alone means nothing without the name of paint company.

RE: Coachman Mirada versus Fleetwood Bounder

I would appreciate any opinions on the two coaches above. One is a 2012 Mirada and the other a 2008 Bounder. Both coaches look mint. Perhaps if a few owners might chime in on the merits or drawbacks of either one. I'm experienced in a class C so this would be out first class A. Thanks in advance I have a 08 Bounder 32W, been great so far no major issues just little stuff, 08 is the last year for Fleetwood before it went Bankrupt from the 2008/09 financial issues and $4 a gal gas, new company owns it now same name but different company with all new employees.

RE: Changing V10 spark plugs...

Yep, no special socket needed on that year V-10. How many miles? About 110K miles. So I don't need to worry about getting the old plugs out or getting the new ones to thread in properly? Haven't had a close look at the engine and I've read too many horror stories on these plugs but maybe they all apply to the early version V10s? Get the right socket less than ten bucks Well that piqued my interest, but it does not seem to be the captive type according to the description. There's other similar ones too but they don't the little rubber thingy inside either. Your lucky you have a 09 V-10, because the 06 to 07 and some early 08 V-10's have the spark plugs that can break in two while removing and takes special tools to remove broken plugs, I have a 07 and dred the day when I change my spark plugs.

RE: man its hot !!

I have a 1990 Coachmen 25 ft. 5th wheel with an aluminum roof. Being anal I painted the roof with white Dicor Elastomeric paint. Did a great job at controlling indoor temps, I would say it knocked it down a good 5-10 degrees... but the stuff lifted and peeled like a sunburn on an Irishman in the desert w/in a year. To add insult to injury when it flakes off during a bath or rain storm it sticks to the siding and won't come off unless you sandblast it!!! If anyone out there has a suggestion I'm all ears. You have to primer the roof if you want it to stick to bare metal, don't have to on other roofs just bare metal. Would have been some good info to print in the instructions on the can:h Just ask the people at the store where you bought it they should be able to help, I am sure somewhere on the product it says to primer bare metal and they might even sell the primer that works best.

RE: man its hot !!

Might be best to call Tiffin inc. And ask them about this. Watching for other comments and thank you all. Its a 93, just apply it you will be happy, but like I said above you need to block the windows during the hot summer months.

RE: man its hot !!

I want to say the roof on this 1993 allgro bay class c is fiberglass but i just dont know. Ill look into it. Some say " ive used it with no problem"and some "say dont ever use it" im new to this i dont have any idea. all i know is ITS HOT. So many folks just don't know, I have seen the liquid rubber coating used on almost anything without any issues, here in the southwest its been applied everywhere and still no issues, I applied last year on my 20 year old roof on my home and its been great, have seen temps lower in house and now my 20 year old shingles will last another 20 years. I should have applied this 10 years ago.

RE: man its hot !!

OPer Koolseal might help but not that much, during the hot months you might want to try the aluminum heat shield rolls from Lowes/Home Depot on some of the windows to help with the heat, most RV's just are not good above 95 degrees, here in Vegas we see 110 as our normal and with 2 ac's running full time its still not so great till sunset, so blocking the windows is the only way to keep it comfortable.

RE: man its hot !!

Yes. Do not use Koolseal on your roof. (Koolseal is a brand name of a roofing compound commonly found on older trailers. Absolutely do not use it on a rubber roof or on anytype of RV, or you will be paying $$$$$$$$ to fix the damage. A tarp or something like a shed should help. If you are on the road, I suggest using your A/C(s) to cool down. I have seen Koolseal or similar brands applied on rubber RV roofs and no issues, have not done mine yet but my neighbor has it on his and no issues after 4 years, can you let us know what the issues are since its all just rubber.

RE: Investigating Full-Timing (stationary to start)

However, I am looking into a TT rather than a 4th wheel. As a motorhome owner myself I would say a 5th wheel has better floor plans and home feel than a standard TT but a park model TT will have the most square footage.

RE: 09 paint not right

Nothing looks worse than paint peeling off and blisters in the fiberglass, it might be minor today but what will it look like in 3 years. I would pass. Look out the front window and drive. you'll never notice. Sitting outside at a campground and seeing the paint peel away and blisters makes one want to stay inside or not go camping.

RE: Newbie. Wanting to buy a class A

Hi all, I'm looking to buying a RV A class So far, I've decided on 30-34 ft, class A, triton v10, $60k-$75k, min of year 2013 What I don't know is brand. What is a good quality and reputable brand? And what are good models as well? Thanks I haven't check used prices as of late but at that price range you may have to go down to 2010.

RE: Buying An RV Lot

But I thought RVs were for traveling and not the headache of living in one on land with all the BS restrictions and such. Keep life simple and just rent.

RE: Looking for Suggestions on a Gasser for $60K

Sectionals you usually see in the most newer models, for $60K your years will be around 2006 to 2010 depending on the model and condition as you already know. What I would be looking for is the chassis, if its a Ford just make sure the chassis is 2006 or newer and if its a Workhorse make sure the front brakes have been repaired under the recall. I also think above 35 foot on a gasser the towing rate can go down as low as 4000 lbs but that does not mean you cant tow 4500 if you need to.
