RE: Selling a Motorhome for Dummies?

Owner to owner sells will never get top dollar, what you have done is enough, just sell it as it is, do let them know what you have done to it.. Besides that if you knew it was upside-down than why did you put $4000 into it, having a dealer do inspection and to bring it up might have been a slight rip off..

RE: 6 year update on running Michelin Super Singles

The only down side I see is the 2 spares you will need, I like having a spare when needed and I have 1 now but where to put a super single spare ?? :h

RE: Chassis/Walls/Roof Twisted after Collision on Class A MH?

Sounds like a total lost, your insurance company should handle this..

RE: workhorse or tritan

In the later years, Workhorse wasn't sitting still. After 2006 they then had the Allison six-speed transmission with overdrive and with the transmission grade brake for mountain use. Yes that's true, but still just a little better to have the Ford after 2006 since Ford is still making them and Workhorse and GM is not..

RE: workhorse or tritan

Get a Workhorse if RV is older than 2006, if 2006 and newer Ford F-53 would be a better deal, 2006 and newer Fords V-10 HP and torque was a little more than GM 8.1 and came with the 5 speed tow-haul transmission..

RE: Sewage in Camper

Got a call from Insurance and they are totaling the camper...just what I wanted to hear...but it will be next week before they can get the check written...we missed our week vacation this week..but hopefully we can be camping by next weekend again Tom Johnson Camping Center put our name on a camper just like what we had..it was the last one they had too...he reserved it first of last week for us..he just knew we would be needing it lol... they will have it ready for us when we get the check. We should be happy campers again soon :) That RV park needs to refund all your money for staying there and maybe gas money as well or threaten to post the name of the park on the web...

RE: Breaking laws F Y I

My toad is a Jeep not a trailer.. With that said I don't have brakes for the Jeep and don't need them, I also double tow with a small trailer with boat hooked to Jeep, it to has no brakes because its under 750 lbs, I do however make sure its connected good with safety chains/cables and my hitch is reinforced on motorhome and under my GVWR.. Flame Away... :p

RE: Sewage in Camper

Wow sorry for your problems OPer but at least you open my eyes, I always close the black tank valve but always leave the gray open, I am planning on leaving my motorhome in Reno for a while and fly back and forth to Vegas, now I will close all valves before leaving, would have never thought..

RE: RV Memory Foam Mattress

It depends on the type of sleeper you are as you said yourself. I prefer soft mattresses, they keep me relaxed on the road. I have a Tempurpedic at home and I am looking to get something similar to that for my RV. Im going to ask the store I got the first mattress from tomorrow and see if they can give me any affordable prices and suitable sizes for the RV mattress and keep you posted. Maybe try the Brentwood 12" HD Memory Foam Special RV Replacement Mattress, its in the link above, comments on Amazon is its on the soft side, I went with the Dynasty because it was listed on the firm side..

RE: Motorhome Depreciation

Depreciation is based in areas of country as well, your chart seems about right. The depreciation starts the moment you sign the papers, 18 percent 1st year seems about right, maybe more is some cases..

RE: July has been taken away.........

No travel for us. We went on our first trip just a few weeks ago. When we returned I was looking through the stack of mail. On the very bottom was a jury duty summons for my wife. She is on call for jury duty for the entire month of July. There goes our summer, or at least a good chunk of it. Big mistake, you should have not responded to the letter, now the courts know you got the letter, I just circle file mine and have for years with no issues, they always send out more than needed because they know not all respond..

RE: 1996 Ford F53 Vapor Locking

I thought fuel vapor locks were a carburetor issue only, fuel inject systems are under pressure and that avoids vapor locks, are you sure there is not another issues such as fuel pump gets hot and shuts down..

RE: question on 2000 fleetwood southwind 35a or 32v

does it have a 14 year old rubber roof? bumpy Those rubber roofs if taken care of can last longer than 14 years, much longer.

RE: question on 2000 fleetwood southwind 35a or 32v

I agree with many here, to many miles, pass on this one trust us, normal for that year should be under 75,000 miles.

RE: Kelderman again

Sorry, I was responding to my slide squeak post and realized upon following your link you were helping with cab noise. I can say the cab has gotten quieter with every new motorhome and the tranny in the 2014 Ford shifts easier with less gear hunting than the 2011. Thanks for the link. Was that a F-53 in 2011, because my 08 F-53 does not hunt at all and I am in the west where there is lots of mountains, maybe it was a bad transmission..

RE: Warning on RVDirect for those currently looking

I don't see how anyone can afford to pay debt load (financing cost) on top of the price of the RV. You are under water immediately with absolutely no hope of ever getting on balance. When you sell, the depreciation and loan cost will more than pay for top flight accommodations. Yes I am a RV owner and have been for many many years. Maybe we all don't have $80,000 or more in the bank, I had $40,000 to put down on a $80,000 total purchase on a nice slightly used class A that I did not want to get away from me so financing was the way to go, yes putting down minimum on a brand new purchase one would be upside down, I and maybe others are not..

RE: Centramatic Wheel Balancers

Well let me chime in here, I have both, Equal in tires and Centramatic Wheel Balancers and my ride is much smoother than wheel weights, is it perfect, no, but as perfect as a 19.5 tire can be, I never have to rebalance tires and worry about wheel weights coming off. your tire will ride smother over time with Centramatic Wheel Balancers and Equal once tire breaks in.

RE: Tire inflator

Harbor freight tools has a small 125 psi 6 gal tank compressor, it fits nicely in outside compartments, runs on Generator, will work on 19.5 tires and maybe 22.5 inch tires..

RE: Kelderman again

Goldencrazy You can also fix the noise with this stuff, I put in my doghouse and under the floors on both driver and passenger side, made a big difference in noise, noise level was reduced by half or more.. http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00069QLVC/ref=oh_details_o04_s01_i00?ie=UTF8&psc=1 http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B000P70UP8/ref=oh_details_o04_s00_i00?ie=UTF8&psc=1
