RE: Looking To Buy A Dash Cam, Pros and Cons

He told the officer I pulled in to his lane, changed his story to he was avoiding a pothole after he was told I had a dashcam. Here is the video link; http://vid1028.photobucket.com/albums/y346/Bob_Walchli/20140617-053311_EVT_D_zpspjzh2jdb.mp4 That's why I am getting one, so many people pull out in front of my motorhome because they think I am going slow or just don't want to be behind me, even was cut off once when a person passed me, I hit my brakes hard to avoid a crash, its time to have a dash cam..

RE: Sewer hose love

I currently have three 15 foot sections of Rhinoflex, just thought if I could eliminate the two junctions I would eliminate the possibility of leaks at some point. The only thing I have issue with macerators is that it is standard practice to wait until the black tank is 3/4 full so you have good flow to drag out all the "gunk". I am sure they work fine but I find it somewhat hard to believe that the flow though one is equivalent to the 3" Rhinoflex. I have looked and looked for a manufacturer that would sell "bulk" lengths to make a one piece hose. I guess I will stick with the three 15s and two couplers. Not so I have a 5/8 water hose for my macerator and dump usually before half a tank and my hose goes about 35 foot and it works great, the way to do it is dump the black 1st than clean out the hose with gray tank water, works like a breeze. I know I am suppose to use a 3/4 hose but had this old hose in my shed that needed something to do and it works fine for now..

RE: Desert heat

What areas are you going to be? Mesa for a couple days, and also Vegas will be the hottest. Bryce, UT has a high forecast, but we are staying at a place that is at 7600 elevation. Looks like in Mesa we will have a lot of sites to pick from, so I am hopeful for some shade. There is lots of vacant RV spaces here in Vegas during the summer but finding one with shade is like hitting the Royal Flush twice in a row, good luck..

RE: Make Sure You Know what RV Prep Includes

Preparation fee is a Scam, my current motorhome and my last motorhome I paid NO preparation fee and never will in the future buys, if a dealer says its mandatory than I walk.. I also avoided dealer fees on my last 2 motorhomes as well, but could never avoid that darn sale tax.. :B

RE: Desert heat

Hello, Will be heading out the SW portion of the US in a couple weeks. Some of the places we'll be staying will be 100+ degrees for the highs. What do I need to take into consideration with my TT to avoid a total meltdown? Thanks in advance for any tips. I live in the SW heat and looking to get out of here in July, heading north, why would you want to travel here in July and August I have no idea. However if you must get some of that roll foil insulation they sell at Lowes and cut it to fit your windows, you will need that for sure, forget looking for shade because any parks that have any shade is already occupied, don't do heavy stuff outside from noon till 6 pm, make sure your TV is in good running condition, good radiator, good tires and batteries and bring lots of fresh water because we are running low on that.. :B

RE: Looking To Buy A Dash Cam, Pros and Cons

How large an SD card will your GoPro take? The only limit to how long it can record for is how much storage memory it has and what resolution you are recording at - and with a 32Gb SD card you should be able to record as long as any dedicated dash cam will - and you already own it. Some GoPros will accept 64Gb SD cards. I don't think my GoPro can rewrite when card is full and it is meant to be mounted using on battery mode and the battery life is not all that great, GoPro is great in certain areas of use but I don't think it can do what dash cams do. Thanks for all the replies I got some learning to do so I buy the right one the 1st time.

Looking To Buy A Dash Cam, Pros and Cons

OK I want a dash cam for my motorhome just in case of a accident, what is the best cam out there, I know nothing about this market what so ever, what I want is one that continues to record for even hours of driving if available, and tips on how they work, I have a GoPro but I don't think it can record for that long of a time.. :C

RE: Is this the start of Workhorse again? Isuzu?

So Ford is getting a 6 speed tow haul transmission in 2016. I guess this is similar to what WH had with the Allison transmission way back in 2006. It was easy for Ford to be leader of the pack when they had no competition. Talk about engineers that screw things up, the two piece spark plug fiasco that Ford did with the F53 chassis up through 2008 is a perfect example of bad engineering. . Yes Ford has some issues but as time goes on it will just get better if they stick with the current V-10 and transmission, I have the 2 piece spark plug now in my 08 and soon to replace them with the newer 1 piece spark plug but other than that the chassis is flawless so far. The spark plug that breaks in 2 pieces is only a minor issue if you replace them before 50,000 miles and they have a tool to remove broken piece if it happens, many now on Youtube have videos about this and its almost a 100 percent removal without any issues if done early.. Here's a success removal, hope mine goes this well https://youtu.be/XOVhhkC3A2c

RE: Is this the start of Workhorse again? Isuzu?

This is the third time around for GM to try a comeback into the MDT and HDT business, after being forced out of it twice by the terms of a U.S. government financial rescue. I don't think it has anything to do with Workhorse, a company set up to pick up GM's chassis business after GM was forced to abandon it in the earlier bailout. There is no other connection, and Workhorse has since failed, been bought and sold again, and will get into the motorhome chassis business if the new owners (mostly in the hybrid truck chassis business) decides the tiny RV chassis market is worth the bother. More likely that GM might try to get back into RV and step van markets themselves, to compete with Workhorse? That's why I think Ford will rule the future in gas motorhome market, buying from a company that has a history like Workhorse and all the new engineers to screw it all up all over again and almost get it right than they shut it down to start all over with another company and engineers.. However this new start up will get Ford moving again and even make more better improvements to stay leader of the pack and they have already done that in 2016 by putting in the 6 speed tow-haul trans and more chassis improvements..

RE: EPDM rubber roof on 1997 monaco windsor

EPDM roofs last about 10 years. I have seen them 20 years old and still in good shape if cared for..

RE: Is this the start of Workhorse again? Isuzu?

Here we go. My daddy can beat up your daddy. Time to get out the popcorn since no one knows for sure what the exact engine engine specs are. :S Wait till Workhorse makes their announcement and we will all know. :B Your wrong about the engine numbers on the soon new Workhorse chassis, its already been announce and its only slightly above the stock V-10. Add HP improvements to the V-10 and its slightly better in some cases..

RE: Is this the start of Workhorse again? Isuzu?

But was not the Ford chassis about $5000 less than the Workhorse chassis, I wonder want the price difference will be now. When I bought mine, the W-22 was exactly $2,214 more than the Ford chassis on my build sheet from Georgie Boy. (That was back in 2004.) Wifey liked the lower doghouse on the Workhorse. I liked the Allison transmission. So, in my mind, I spent $2,213 to keep wifey happy (a relative bargain) and I got an Allison transmission for a dollar!!! LOL (An even bigger bargain. Gosh, I hope she doesn't read this. :) ) Anyway, it'll be nice to have competition again. The Ford chassis got better in the early 2000's because of the improvements Workhorse was making to their chassis. When you're the champ, it's easy to rest on your laurels unless some new contender is nipping at your heels. :) Workhorse back in the market should be a win-win for everyone. ~Rick Ford even got better in 2006 with the 3 valve V-10 with more HP and TQ than the 8.1 and almost matched the Allison with the 5 speed Tow Haul trans, now Ford is putting the 6 speed Tow Haul in for 2016 with more chassis improvements, Fleetwood even redesigned the dog house so its a little smaller and better for 2016, Workhorse is going to have to work hard to keep up. My biggest complaint with Workhorse was the Auto-Park Brake, Ford kept it simple with manual control, less to break down and cause headaches.. Keep it simple and stupid is how I like it best.. :C

RE: EPDM rubber roof on 1997 monaco windsor

Yep as Fire Up said {The Dicor product is designed for use on Rubber roofs} that's the cheapest fix for these roofs and does a good job, I cant see spending $5000 for a new replacement type when this is cheap and fast compared to the other companies..

RE: EPDM rubber roof on 1997 monaco windsor

EPDM roofing can be recoated, they sell a product for this, don't have the link but I think its the cheapest way to go without replacing the roof material..

RE: Is this the start of Workhorse again? Isuzu?

So it only costs a few grand to get the V10 to perform like it should. But was not the Ford chassis about $5000 less than the Workhorse chassis, I wonder want the price difference will be now..

RE: 245/70-19.5 Hankook tires

I bought these same tires for my motorhome last year and so far they are great, many here recommend these tires, gets better reviews than the Goodyear's and Michelins

RE: Is this the start of Workhorse again? Isuzu?

Looks like the current gas version of PSI 8.8L is rated for around 550 Lb-ft torque max. http://i.imgur.com/1pOsqTn.png PSI brochure indicates that the block is capable up to 1,000 Lb-ft. http://i.imgur.com/ZQO9F9nl.jpg "border=0" http://bit.ly/1CIRlV8 The Ford 3 valve V-10 with the Banks Power Pack and Five Star tuning can achieve about the same Torque Lbs and more HP than the stock 8.8 And I bet there is no after market HP improvements for that 8.8 motor.. FORD RULES AGAIN.. :B
