RE: Cleaning windshield at campsite

I carry a ladder and spray the windshield with window cleaner that I buy at Costco. I let it soak a good two minutes and wipe off with a microfiber rag.

RE: Tire blowout video on I 26

I always wondered about those cable barriers...now I know. Here in California there is a state wide project of putting concrete barriers on all four lane highways to prevent exactly what happened to that RV.

RE: 2004 Holiday Rambler Admiral 30PDD

I have a 2004 Monaco La Palma that we bought new back in 2004. Have put 80,000 miles on it and I'm impressed with how well everything has held up. Monaco built them right. If it has the 8.1 Workhorse chassis then you need to make sure the Actia LCD dash readout, to tell you what gear you are in, is readable. Make sure the Bosch brake recall has been done.

RE: AC in hot days

Make sure all your roof vents and windows are closed.

RE: 2003 Holiday Rambler Neptune

You need to check the date codes on the tires and determine what year they were manufactured.

RE: More Battery Problems

J-Rooster, Did you wire the new batteries in a balanced manner? Could you explain "Balanced manner".

RE: 2004 Holiday Rambler Endeavor bedroom slide question

On my Monaco La Palma, that has a HR emblem on the front cap, the bedroom slide assembly is a Power Gear. I had the drive gear break a tooth on mine and it caused erratic operation. A local Dealer had the correct gear in stock but did mention it was hard to get parts for Power Gear assemblies sometimes.

RE: Oil change on workhorse 8.1

Have you changed the transmission fluid? It came with Dexron iii and should be changed every two years or 25,000 miles. I change my own and it's as easy as changing you engine oil. It has a spin on filter that should be changed too. I switched mine to Transynd two years ago. I suggest you do the same. When you drain it measure the amount that comes out with a bucket that has quart markings on the side and put that exact same amount back in. I will usually get 11 quarts. After adding the fluid drive it about 25 miles and drain again and refill. That's the only way you can get a complete change. Do NOT use a power flush. Allison says NOT to do that.

RE: Some questions about a trip out West

We've done several two month trips. We put everything on a credit card and I then average out the cost of the trip when it's done. I've discovered that $100 a day is what we spend on a cross country trip. That includes fuel, RV parks, Greyline Tours, food, entry fees, entertainment,etc. Everything. I'd be curious what others have come up with for a daily average. We very seldom make reservations although Florida in January requires reservations as does any place on the 4th of July. California is very crowded in the summer months when the kids are out of school so beware of that. Sturgis Motorcycle Rally is August 7 through the 13 in South Dakota. Don't go near there then. 700,000 people are there at that time.

RE: Fleetwood or Thor

I'd go for the one the wife likes the best. All RV's are good and all RV's are bad so pick the one that has the best floor plan.

RE: Sunroof glass on Toad

I've pulled toads with sunroofs 80,000 miles and no problems were encountered. pointrow's neighbor is the only time I've ever heard of a sunroof getting cracked.

RE: Finding Out Generator Load Maximum

I've got a Onan 5500 and what I did was fire it up and turned on every electrical device in the coach except the furnace. Sat like that about 15 minutes with no problems so now I know where I stand.

RE: batterys

Needed a size 24F for my car two days ago. Walmart had it for $104 with a 5 year warranty. First 3 years complete exchange and final 2 years prorated. Made by Johnson Controls.

RE: Schwintek must not stop while extending/retracting?

I never heard of that. We've stopped slides midway probably a hundred times or more. I think I would contact your RV manufacturer and ask them.

RE: Spots after removing Diamond Shield

Was the shield installed at the factory or was it installed after you bought the coach? Just curious.

RE: Tow Bar connecting

If both my arms don't lock up, and that happens from time to time, I pull forward and turn to the right and then to the left. Then my wife checks them to make sure they have locked up.

RE: Packing to travel

I put a bungee cord through the coffee maker and that's about it. We put small miscellaneous items in the sink. Have had three panic stops over the years and everything stayed put. A little noisy from the dish cabinet but no damage done.

RE: Broken window

$2-3 for a hide a key. $1-2 for a replacement key. VERY VERY worth it. Any time we get a new coach or vehicle, I always hide a key. Metal Hide-A-Key is worthless. 1. They can fall off. 2. Moisture gets inside them and the key rusts. I put my spare keys in a zip lock bag and Duct tape it to the frame in my engine compartment which isn't locked. Actually Gorilla Tape. I also leave my drivers side window unlocked now due to a similar problem when thieves broke my entrance door window in a storage facility and wrecked the lock.
