RE: Will Single A/C cut it?

WOW! - thanks for all the support and ideas. To put and end to this story I will say I bought a 36 foot Jayco Precept 35UN with dual A/C and 50 amp service yesterday. It did great on the test drive but ambient was only 86. I suspect it may have trouble as well at higher temps but i can "dump" the vent in bedroom to sleep and pull slides in at night if need be. I came up with a plan to park a cargo trailer so I do have room for this rig at the house now. Cheers!! Wow! Nice Rig

RE: Will Single A/C cut it?

I see you live in Las Vagas. I'm surprised you even asked the question. We were in Las Vagas a couple summers ago for three days. 113 degrees every day. One A/C and 30 amp...No Way!!!

RE: K&N Air Filter

Tried one 35 years ago... never again. If you do use one the problem comes in when you re-oil it. Easy to get too much oil on it. And on a gas engine using too much oil it will wreck the MAF sensor.

RE: oil filter

Many years ago the market was flooded with fake oil filters from China. As a result I go to the dealer to buy my filters. Chevrolet dealer for my coach and Toyota for my car. I'd suggest you go to a Ford dealer.

RE: RV Generator

I went to Cummins and bought the filter removal tool from them. Also you need the generator to be hot.

RE: 30 amp to 50amp Adapter

Saw an adapter to do just that at our local Walmart last week. About $15.

RE: Class A travel to Destin,Fl

I generally will always take the interstate or four lane roads. I think it is safer...less chance of a head-on collision, I'm not blocking traffic and I can pass those who are blocking traffic. The on ramps allow others to merge as opposed to people pulling out from their driveways, etc. In case of engine or tire problems I can get off the road far enough for others to pass by me. As time goes on I see more and more people texting and not paying attention to their driving...hence I want to give myself every bit of an edge to get out of their way. So, my answer is...stay with the four lanes. For those who claim the scenery is bad on a four lane...I disagree. I've hit all the lower 48 states and found beauty everywhere we've gone.

RE: soft pavement

I carry four 2X12X18 boards with me at all times. I don't need them very often but it's essential to have them sometimes.

RE: Utah RV Service Recommendations ?

Is it a Sharp Microwave Oven Model R-1874? Does it run for 59 seconds and stop?

RE: Diesel smell inside coach

We keep all ceiling vents and windows closed while moving. I assume you mean diesel exhaust?

RE: Need advice on Chevy 8.1 Vortec engine (2003)

Had the exact same problem over a period of about a year, got worse gradually. Changed the fuel filter and Oxygen sensors. No help. Type of fuel won't change it either. Cleaned the MAF sensor...problem cured. The O2 sensors were detecting that the air to fuel mixture wasn't right and set the check engine light. What code are you getting for the Check Engine Light? I was getting P0150 and P0151 codes.

RE: check engine light comes on

What engine?

RE: undecided before buying

Pick the one whose layout you AND the wife both like. Remember if Momma isn't happy, nobody is happy. That Ford engine will take you over any mountain you encounter.

RE: Resale value on discontinued models?

ugh..you are probably right...that's the great feedback I was looking for..at the end of the day this is a asset and just trying to minimize taking a "massive" hit versus a "major" hit down the road.. Dude...I have some bad news for you. You will always take a massive hit selling these things. Buy one enjoy it and don't think about selling it. I paid $120,000 for mine and it's worth about $35,000 now. We've had a $1,000,000 worth of pleasure with it so I'm ahead of the game.

RE: From Mass to Cali and back

I am not afraid to drive. I am a road warrior of sorts. I drive between 35k and 55k per year. When making the trip (in my car or truck) to visit my mother in Florida, I have done the 24 hour trip straight through too many times to count. I prefer to stop around the Georgia/Florida line and then finish up the short trip the second day. What I have yet to do is travel a long distance driving a MH. I assume it is much more work and more stressful than driving my car that far. Based on that I am inclined to think that 8-10 hour driving days will be plenty. Also I know that that 8-10 hours will bring me much shorter distances in the MH. I once did Boston to Daytona in 16 hours door to door. We were only going for 3 days so we needed to make tracks. I think you will find driving your coach long distances actually easier than a car or truck. I prefer to drive the coach long distances, it is more comfortable and you can see more. Drove from California to Florida last November in seven days as we had to get there for a cruise. Couple 10 hour days and I wasn't tired even with me being 70.
