RE: EPDM roof, Is it toast?

Really EPDM rubber roofs only last 10 or so years. I would not chance it at all. Water damage will cost far more than a roof. So, my 15 year old EPDM roof (which doesn't leak and still looks good) should be replaced??? Why??? I agree, if the rubber roof is cleaned and cared for it can last 20 plus years even in the desert sun.. To the OPer you can also go to Lowes and get the white solar roof coating and apply that, wont cost much and does work.

RE: Thor Motorhome Issues

You are going to have to learn how to fix the small things by yourself and let the warranty take care of the big stuff or your motorhome will spend more time at the dealer and not at a campground..

RE: What has happened to Winnebago Quality?

This whole thread only reinforces why I keep polishing my 95 Bounder. Richard Yes I agree with the Bounders before Fleetwood went bankrupt, I have a 08 Bounder pre bankrupt Fleetwood and its been great, yes a few thing here and there but nothing that needed to go to the dealer about.. Oh and mine has the full body paint, much easier to polish :p

Hitch Hog Where To Buy ??

Was looking at this Hitch Hog on YouTube but cannot find out if they were ever made and if so where can I get one, I search the internet without results. https://youtu.be/8nkcEzvXHbc http://i1.ytimg.com/vi/V7987fFomOg/hqdefault.jpg

RE: We want to buy our 1st coach and eventually go full time

I would keep the 5ver. FT for 8 months to a year. After that you will know exactly what you want and need. Yep that is what I would do, keep what you have now and try full timing 1st to see if you like that, because buying new now and changing your mind about full timing in a year will be expensive.

RE: Bishop, Ca. to Las Vegas via Hwy 6 & 95

I have done that route a lot in class A and C, good road, much better than taking 395 down to I-15, however travel with full fuel tank not a lot of fuel stops that way but other than that you will be fine. Oh yea one more thing drive at least 62 mph or more if your not towing or you will have lots of cars and semis behind you trying to past if your going slow, so many times I have got behind other motorhomes that drive 55 and all it does is cause problems.

RE: Thor Miramar, Vista, and Bounder

Go with the Bounder, good motorhome as far as I am concerned.

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: Leaf Springs

If its a bigger motorhome than the P32 than the springs will be bigger/thicker plus 9 years ago things did cost less than today Opps read to fast thought you said 9 years ago, oh well
