RE: Ordering 2015 ram 3500

Mine stays , I just leave it in trans temp. I have 22000 on my 2011 and I love it. I have never seen a regen warning or something is getting full, never, it runs great , has huge power and gets decent mpg for as heavy as it is. Enjoy it.

RE: Onan Generator most likely problems

Most problems with gen sets are they are not used enough. Lack of use is very bad.

RE: 360 Hp Cummins

Based on over 100k miles driving 4 coaches, Go with bigger every time. My first DP was an ISC 8.3L because I knew the ISB at any HP rating did not have enough torque. I now have a ISM 10.8L Love it. Although I wouldn't mind getting the big ISX 15L. The smaller engines will probably do the job, but the west is vast and tall and you have to worry the whole way. Good Luck. So Cummins, Frieghtliner, Fleetwood must be repairing those little ISB's left & right as they've been put into many different MH platforms for some time. I doubt it's been a issue for anyone who has one, anymore than a larger ISC or any engine. Design limits and caution just thrown into the wind by the engineers ?? All those gassers & little ISB's must be terrified heading to the vast and tall great out West. In reality since you've really never driven a ISB, you don't have any experience with it. I guess I should have added the words. For me. Someone in there. I never said they wouldn't do the job and I certainly never said they break in any way. They just aren't enough for me. After crossing the Rockies more times than I can remember. I want a lot of power. I don't like maxing anything out. I feel things last longer if I don't run them at full power all the time. I have driven 3 coaches with isb. Dads, brothers, and brother in laws. All 3 of them agreed with me and all traded coaches after a few years. Buy what you want and enjoy your day ISB didn't have enough torque for what? I would suspect that is your personal opinion, as they go up and down and straight and flat just like any other MH. Unless of course you have some data to support your statement.

RE: 360 Hp Cummins

You will be going slow up the mountains, that doesn't bother some people. That is the same engine in my 8000lb pickup. Good luck with whatever you do.

RE: Coach Prices and Long Term Quality

There is a big diff between the chassis on an eagle and a heritage. I know nothing of the inside. I buy based on chassis. I know most people buy based on twinkle lights and other stuff inside. I see it all the time.
zb39 06/19/14 02:57pm Class A Motorhomes

I have owned both. I would take the Damon over the other if all else is equal.

RE: Tire Age

I would have ask the rep how many tires they make that 1 day of the yr, What a crock of BS, tire plant usually run yr round, not just so many days of the month or yr. Sorry, but tire plants don't produce the same tires day in and day out. The machinery can make a variety of different types and sizes and gets changed when needed. In the tire plant I worked in, the only thing that didn't get changed every day was the molds - and there was always several daily mold changes being made out of the hundred of molds in production. So the claim that they only make RV tires once a year is quite plausible. The production run might take several weeks, but they produce enough to satisfy the entire year's worth of sales. Besides, tires don't age as fast in warehouses. They have wax coatings and antioxidants to protect the tires during storage. It's been said that any tire within 3 years of production is nearly the same as a freshly made one. Here we have some facts, very nice. Also MH mag recomends starting the time when they are installed. I have been doing this for 22 years of RVing, never had a problem.

RE: What do you carry for protection?

Proper tools for the job at hand.

RE: Lance 1191

You have gotten some great advice. I would hit a CAT scale when you are fully loaded and ready to go. Then check rear axle weight rating, rear tire rating, and your rear wheel rating. I would be interested in knowing what exact tire you have on the truck now. People here just want you to be safe and enjoy the ride. Just so you know, I went this route once with a 2500 truck. I put 19.5 tires and wheels on it before ever loading the camper(1150). Along with a bunch of other items. I soon got a 3500DRW and I love it. Stress free driving. Good luck.

RE: Diesel Question for truck campers

Depending upon the terrain and the amount of wind blowing my MPG with the diesel engine varies from 9.5 to 13.5 MPG. I have to plan on 9.5 MPG as we go where AAA does not, nor is there cell phone reception much of the time. I am planning a trip to Glacier NP via eastern CA, eastern OR, Idaho, and western Montana. These areas have few people, few towns, and few gas stations, much less gas stations with diesel. It stands to reason that when you are in states where the total population is much less than for many cities San Jose, Seattle, Chicago, Atlanta, Dallas, Boston, Phoenix) that there will be fewer gas stations that can sell enough fuel to stay in business. It is different on major interstates that support the trucking industry. If you don't mind doing all your traveling on the interstates and only going where they go then it is true that one can find diesel. But that is one heck of a limitation in the western states. I have a diesel truck now but my next truck will definitely have a gas engine (and 4.10 gears). You will not have any problem finding diesel anywhere in Montana or Idaho. Been there many times in last 25 years.

RE: All Electric Motorhome ?

A generation raised on Star Trek continues to dream of a world with unlimited cheap clean energy supplied by Di-Lithium crystals. Unfortunately someone needs to do the real engineering and we'll never get there by just hugging trees or trying to legislate technological innovation into existence. But todays new generation knows that crystolic fusion is the way to go. Just ask Buzz Lightyear.

RE: Is this a scam?

I have sold 2 coaches on line and bought 2. In every case after I find the coach I want or the seller finds mine. We do everything over the phone. Talk to a real person. It works great. I even flew to CA and bought one. Great trip.
