RE: 2005 Volkswagon Jetta, 5 Speed Manual Trans, Can I Flat Tow

Thanks for the post, this is the problem my neighbor is having, VW says no but has seen others doing it, just like a post above they sell the base plates for the Jetta to flat tow, why is VW so hard headed over flat towing a manual trans, when many have done it with success.

RE: Suggested Price for 2014 Bounder Classic 34b

30% off MSRP is a good start. I would think $85-88k is where you want to land. Google search revealed that General RV just sold one they had discounted to $87k. sold one The one you have listed for 87 thousand is a bunk model, I had a rv salesman {5 years salesman} tell me it takes longer to sell those, most class A buyers are retired and don't want bunks and family's usually have a tight budget, so the bunk models after sitting for over 10 months the dealer will blow it out at cost to get it off the lot.

2005 Volkswagon Jetta, 5 Speed Manual Trans, Can I Flat Tow

I am asking for my neighbor that has upgraded to a motorhome, he wants to flat tow his Jetta with 5 speed manual trans, is he OK or not.

RE: AVOID Shell station selling tires & gas in Wells NV

Wells Nevada is a small town out in the middle of no where on a major highway, tow charge into Reno would have cost more, at least they got you back on the road with 2 new tires and valve stems, could have cost more or got used tires for the same price, I would have to say you got a fair deal for your location.

RE: Sewer Odor (most likely the grey tank)

When my grey tank gets about 3/4 full it smells out the rv everytime, have added chemicals in grey tank to help but it still does it no matter what I do, I guess its just the way it is.

RE: UK citizen- Wants to buy an RV in Canada & sell on in USA..?

Jeez it would be cheaper and less headache to just rent a RV in Canada and when done in Canada turn it in and rent another in America. Did you even consider break down cost, the rental company will take care of that..

RE: How to tow our Wrangler?

Thanks all! I'm waiting on a few quotes from RV stores to determine the best way to go. One question: I asked if a dolly would work and was assured that even though a dolly is meant to be used with a front wheel car; it can still be used towing a rear wheel Wrangler as long as I remember to not only place the manual transmission in manual before towing BUT also shift the transfer case to neutral. Is this correct? Do not use a dolly for a wrangler, either tow 4 wheels down and on a flat bed trailer.

RE: 2011 ford v10 air filter

Yes When I said motorhome he had that dead eye stare and asked if it was a F150 or 250 I will try the other options Thanks for all the help You need to tell the parts person that its a F-53 and than they can find the part, the kids behind the counter don't know this but its in their computer system.

RE: Montana LLC

TinMac, if it was a private party sale there is no sales tax. DMV fees should'nt be that bad for that old of a coach. The sale was in AZ thru a consignment lot, I think he is still on the hook for taxes not sure but he is also doing this to get the low cost plates and yearly tags.

RE: Shock Absorbers

Here is the review I referenced: Shock Absorber Review The review did not do the Monroe RV shocks, WHY, I put on new Monroes on my 2008 Bounder 32W and there was a difference is the ride, the bumps were smoother and quieter, I find this review short..

RE: Shock Absorbers

Monroe RV shocks is the way I went, the ride is soft and still good sway control and is the least cost of all RV shocks.

RE: Montana LLC

Its not that the Montana LLC thing is illegal the real problem is neighbors turning in neighbors, states are hurting for money and they know the Montana LLC loop hole to save RV buyers thousands in tax and DMV fees, however your state can go after you if they find out you have out of state plates, trust me on this, don't do the Montana LLC if you still have a house and park the RV there, only do this if your a full timer.. And to add to this my neighbor next door is doing the Montana LLC to avoid Nevada tax as I type this, he just payed cash for a 2008 Fleetwood Southwind but wants to avoid Nevada tax and DMV fees, he is safe with regards to me but I don't know about the people across the street, the lady is retired from the Fed nark unit, I see trouble for him down the road..

RE: NEW Tankless H2O Heater Installed...

Just when you think you have seen it all !! 6 gal Atwood from Amazon $280.00 Sometimes you can find RV water heaters on sell for $240,00, not sure if OPer saved any money on that, wait till a big rain storm and I wonder what will happen to those controls on the water heater, warranty will not fix that one, and yes that is to be mounted inside away from the elements. :D

RE: Overwhelmed with choices of motorhomes

Have you ever seen on television the program called ICE TRUCKERS? Now you know that those truckers do not use gasoline engines on those big rigs hauling equipment way up into the coldest parts of Alaska. They are all diesel my friend. So if you like a gasoline motorhome, that is fine with me. But lets keep the posting believable. Diesel engines have always operated in the coldest parts of the world. Sometimes you have to add additives to the diesel fuel, but that is having knowledge as to what to do in those cold places. That's funny you mention that show and about diesels in cold weather, they had a episode where a truck was not left running and it would not start because the driver forgot and shut it off.. Diesels are good for heavy loads and have lots of torque but don't shut them off in very cold weather or you will be walking.

RE: Entry Level Fivers With Man Beds Dont Exist

Just replace the short RV queen with a house queen and everything will be just fine, did this on my last 2 motorhomes, my current one came with a RV king built in, wide and long..

RE: Major Fail

This is why I carry a spare with tools to replace the flat, no waiting for help and I am down the road.. I have used Good Sam Road service twice and they came for me in just a few hours or less, once in Oregon and once in Nevada.

RE: are all Winnebago 37F's junk?

I am not bashing Winni's I don't own one but I do read this site and I read problems after problems with motorhomes on this site. People are always asking how to fix and repair items on here every class and type of Mo Ho, trailer etc. My major problems has been with the Onan generator, the chevy chassis and the furnace. The rest of the unit has been pretty good. But after owning and seeing how it is built I think these manufactures could use a lot better quality control. Well I would say most of the posters here come here for issues, not very many come on here to say everything is AOK, RV.net is just a small segment of the RV market. Reading post here is not a gauge of over all quality, just the bad stuff here is reported.
