RE: North Platte Nebraska

Stayed here We stayed at Holiday park. Bailey Train Yard A couple miles from the campground is the largest railroad yard in America. It's funny you posted this thread now because I was wearing my T-shirt from the train yard today. You sit on the 7th floor of a tower building and look down on the yard as retired engineers answer questions about railroading. Great place if you like trains!!!

RE: Rear brakes smokin'!!

I use an IR gun every stop to check for dragging brakes and low tire pressure. what if you never stop ? or don't stop for hours ? I can appreciate the laser thermometer tactic but its only good when you stop. a good TPMS monitor that also monitors temperature will alert you long before you stop. I agree with you. However after seeing so many posts of the problems with the TPMS systems it looks like they are a bit of a pain.

RE: Norcold Recalls

It's been my impression, after watching web chats such as this one, that there are more problems with the Norcolds after the recalls than before. And all this to fix a problem, the frequency of which is unknown. Amen.

RE: Honda Pilot

You can flat tow it as is.

RE: gas price down

Filled up with gas yesterday here in Clovis, California. It was only $4.19 a gallon! Down from $4.33 last week. You guys better count your blessings.

RE: Acceleration 0 to 60 in 30 Seconds

Today I was able to do my speed test without the toad. Same conditions...level and no wind. Shaved 5 seconds off to 25 seconds. Also I went over the Grapevine today with no toad...nice.

RE: Acceleration 0 to 60 in 30 Seconds

Will be on a return leg of this trip to San Diego and won't be towing the toad so I plan to do another 0 to 60 test without the toad Friday. Should be interesting. Thanks to all who replied.

RE: Towable vehicles

See if it towable Pick out a car you like and then go to the Remco site. That site will tell you if you can tow it or how to modify it to tow.

Acceleration 0 to 60 in 30 Seconds

0 to 60 in 30 Seconds I timed my acceleration getting on the freeway the other day. Flat ground and no wind. 2004 Worhorse 8.1 with Allison transmission. I'm about 25,800 lb with the toad. Anybody else ever time their takeoff time?

RE: Wanting to hear from Class A gas powered owners

I have a gas 8.1 GM engine in a 36 foot Class A. I always pull a toad, it weighs 4,020lb. We run coast to coast and live in California with lots of mountain trips. Pulls just fine. From what I've read on here the V10 does a good job too. I averaged 7.1 mpg over 65,000 miles. So I figure that's 14 mpg if I pull a toad, right? Two vehicles for same amount of gas? So pull a toad....it doubles your gas milage! I think you'd be wise to buy a gas engine and use the money you save on camping trips.

RE: intermittent noise coming from engine and/or trans.

UltraGauge I use one of these and keep an eye on engine temperature. Last week the engine temp went up to 219 degrees and the gauge on the dash didn't move a bit. My normal range is 199 to 204 degrees. If your gauge on the dash is moving up to the hot marker you have some serious cooling problems and need to have it looked at soon.

RE: Wind sensor awnings?

We've had two awnings blown off. We never leave it out unless we are there. We were in Boise last July and one afternoon a horrendous wind storm came in very fast. Several awnings were blown away at the campground. I asked the campground owners about the sudden wind and they said they see that a couple times a year there. When the dealer installed our electric awning we have now I requested the wind sensor be eliminated. I had one on the previous RV and was not impressed with it.

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

What did your insurance company say? Do they have a preferred repair place? I had a blowout and my coach had to go to Workhorse for some of the repairs and then towed to a RV dealer for some of the other damage. Insurance (CSAA AAA) covered it all.

RE: precision parking

I park beside my house on a concrete pad. To be able to open my compartment doors I need to be centered within about 1 to 2 inches. I have painted the concrete with white stripes and watch those as I back in. As rjatijnet1 said...you really only need to focus on one side and I concentrate on the drivers side line which I made a little bigger for visibility.

RE: MPG : gas -vs- diesel

36' class A with a GM 8.1 gas engine. I get 7.1 mpg...that's averaged over 65,000 miles. I figure I get 14 mpg if I'm pulling my toad...after all, two vehicles get there for the same amount of gas. So if you get a Class A be sure to pull a toad.

RE: Monaco Lapalma

Our 2004 has been excellent as far as what Monaco put on it. Workhorse chassis had some problems but your's is a Ford so I don't know about the chassis. My slides are both electric gear driven. Snapped a gear tooth on the bedroom slide, replaced gear and it was fine. If something happened to this coach I'd go try to find a used one just like it. How much are they asking for it and how old are the tires?

RE: Toad brakes

Seems to me in a panic stop I like the idea of eight brakes instead of four. The facts are four huge MH brakes do most of the stopping and the four tiny brakes on the TOAD are doing very little to stop the whole thing.....I think that most people put a lot of stock in little brakes. LOL...Yep and I'm one of them.
