RE: How many cubic feet of air does my 16" tire hold?

I know the word "Nitrogen" causes all sorts of controversy, but it sure works well for me. The pressure is always stable in the tires and eliminates the squiring effect of cold tires in the morning. Hope this helps you. I noticed that Walmart is filling their company truck tires with it. If they are doing it, there must be something money saving benefit about it over regular air!!!

RE: Who Double Tows With Your Motorhome

Legal and safe are two different things. This setup in conjunction with the 85MPH speed limit announcement should make for a really safe environment for everyone around you. Yep, imo I do agree. I pulled commercial short flat bed doubles, hauling steel, in NYS, Ontario, Michigan and Indiana. Loaded or empty, we did not call that last trailer a wiggle wagon for nothing!!! It wiggled all over the road. All you had to do was a quick snap of the steering wheel and it was off and running. And as far as handling, it was very critical of how it was loaded, and when it was loaded perfect, it was still a wiggle wagon!!

RE: Overweight Toad?

... I wouldn't think twice about only 700lbs. It won't be a "danger" thing in this instance, more of a long term stress issue. If 700lbs snaps the hitch, it was bad from the beginning. But you are talking a Chevy 454 engine and a P30 chassis with frame extensions. That tells me that it is a old Class A, maybe 20 plus years old. That is a long term stress issue, and maybe even, a rust/corrosion issue that has already happened! And your saying it okay and not a danger thing??? I've seen cracked and broken frames on class 8 tractors. It doesn't take much where metal stress and age is a factor.

RE: Overweight Toad?

I'm still waiting for someone to give a specific example of what is going to fail and how it is going to put everyone's lives at risk on the road due to the weight rating of the hitch. Dennis came the closest with a tire blowout but that doesn't have anything to do with the hitch rating.I've read numerous reports of motorhome hitch failures on this forum over the years. But seeing that you didn't read them, must be they didn't happen.

RE: Overweight Toad?

Lets see, a 454 engine and a P30 chassis. Lets throw some metal fatigue on the issue!!! And on the subject of frame extension reinforcement, did you get it DOT certified? Is the welder certified? I know welders, and I know welders. They are not created equal!!!

RE: Georgetown 350

Georgetown recalls and you can also check the National Highway Transportation Safety Administration website for recalls. You can also file a complaint there too!

RE: Quick Fill Fresh Water Tank

I know if you guys could see the pictures you would know exactly what to tell me. I believe you are correct. I think there is a tank flushing setup. I think when I turn that valve the other way I hear it going into the black water tank. The fresh water tank is under the bed in the back of the MH. Should I be able to see the water level going up when I am filling? Should I have to turn the pump on when I am filling?I think maybe you would get a quicker, more accurate answer if you were to ask this question on a Rexhall forum: Rexhall International RV Club.

RE: Quick Fill Fresh Water Tank

I can fill quicker turning the pump on.

RE: Quick Fill Fresh Water Tank

sounds to me like your "off" position makes the water go into the tank, and the other position is for using city water. bumpyThat is my thought too. Exactly like my setup with the Foretravel. My valve when on just fills the tank.

RE: Quick Fill Fresh Water Tank

I agree but the valve doesn't say on or off it just has an arrow showing the you can turn it one way or the other. I can't find where or how to post a picture of it.You have to use a photo hosting site like photobucket. Here is a whole discussion area on how to do it: RV.Net Tutorials and Picture related FAQ's

RE: New Gas Chassis Choices

Negative to too big a gasser is after about 36 ft plus a toad getting into gas stations requires prior planning. Backing up with a toad is never advised. For whatever it's worth, our 2000 gas coach is 37'8" long, and in the 14 years we've had it, no major problems getting fuel with our toad attached. Granted the layout of some stations are a bit tricky. We usually try to fuel at Pilot or Flying J stations where they have islands dedicated to RV's, also get a small discount on our fuel. Safe Travels...:)Some people with have trouble maneuvering a 24 foot coach with a toad. In fact, some will have trouble doing it without the toad.

RE: Deka Batteries ??????

House batteries in the coach ate Deka 8D AGMs. Best bang for the buck imo.

RE: Bad GFI ?

A GFCI outlet is called a ground-fault circuit interrupter (GFCI). It's there to protect people from electrical shock, so it is completely different from a fuse or circuit breaker. It monitors the amount of current flowing from hot to neutral. If there is any imbalance, it trips the circuit. There can be additional protected outlets down stream from the GFCI outlet, depending how the circuit is wired. If you don't know what you are doing, get someone who does to help you!!!

RE: Diesel fuel filter info

Yep...a great way to ruin your engine. Why would you want to do anything like this? I don't understand why you would want to carry diesel fuel either...my Ford and GM diesels just need to be either electrically primed or pump primed. You should NEVER add fuel to the filter before putting it on as this puts unfiltered fuel into the engine, and it will explode :)Have seen lots of folks, including diesel mechanics, do it. Back in the old trucking days, we used transmission fluid as injector cleaner. It consist of anti-wear additives, rust and corrosion inhibitors, detergents, dispersants and surfactants (which protect and clean metal surfaces); kinematic viscosity and viscosity index improvers and modifiers, seal swell additives and agents (which extend the rotational speed range and temperature range of the additives' application); anti-foam additives and anti-oxidation compounds to inhibit oxidation and "boil-off" (which extends the life of the additives' application); cold-flow improvers, high-temperature thickeners, gasket conditioners, pour point depressant and petroleum dye. In a bind, your diesel will start on it, and it isn't going to hurt a thing. And it will not cause your diesel to explode!!

RE: No shift

Sorry, but I don't know anything about your Allison 647. However, I Googled it and came up with a similar shifting problem discussed on iRV2.com. http://www.irv2.com/forums/f125/a-little-advise-requested-mt647-no-shift-126622.html Good luck. sorry to say, if you dont know the answer to a persons post, why do you post and say you dont know? just askingWait a minute, you're the guy who uses a air nail gun to install the front bra on a motorhome, and your questioning the guy who offered a decent link???

RE: What manufacturer do I purchase?

Yep - RV-Coach is about as close as you will come, and it doesn't do justice to some coaches, while it rates some others to high imho. And yes, your question has been asked many times. Be careful what you buy and be extremely careful when listening to RV salesmen.

RE: Ford Ecoboost gas mileage and reliability???

And the bad! My son brought one of the earlier ones. When ever it saw a hill approaching, it started shuddering. Ford could not fix it and he took the lemon law approach. Got a very large settlement from them, close to 5 figures. They still have not been able to fix the shudder. Other that the shutter, he likes the truck, and it is still afraid of the hills!

RE: Cruise Control - Not Working

Have you thought about asking over at the Winnebago Industries Owner's Forum?

RE: Trucks or Buses Left Lane Only. Does that mean me?

"The answer, according to Pennsylvania Turnpike Commission spokesman Carl E. DeFebo Jr., lies in the special conditions presented by the construction zone. In order to keep traffic moving as efficiently as possible during repairs, engineers sometimes route vehicles temporarily onto road surfaces not designed for full-time traffic, DeFebo said. For instance, when driving on temporary lanes through a construction zone, you might actually be using what's normally the shoulder of the road, or a stretch specially built for use only during the work, he said. As the Warrior has reported previously, roadway "shoulders" are not as deep as main travel lanes, the subsurface materials vary, and other differences make them unable to sustain heavy loads or lots of traffic without failing prematurely." source: http://articles.mcall.com/2003-09-05/news/3485580_1_lane-concrete-barriers-roadway
