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?

Are you in Clovis, California or Clovis, New Mexico? If California who is the dealer?

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: 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.

RE: From Mass to Cali and back

We've run coast to coast four times now. Three weeks won't cut it. While we were working we kept our trips west of the Mississippi and into western Canada. Only after we retired did we go coast to coast. May I suggest you explore some of the beautiful east coast until you have more time.

RE: The infamous Norcold refrigerator! Rant!

Good luck with your repairs. I'm curious as to what make and model motorhome you own.

RE: Oil/tranny fluid change

I drain my both oil and transmission fluid when the engine is cold. It takes the engine oil maybe a half hour or so to stop dripping. The Allison 1000 transmission will drain about one extra quart after sitting a week without running. The only problem I have run into is loosening the oil filter if the engine is cold. I've been doing it that way for ten years now.

RE: Best route Monterey Bay to Tehacapi CA

Went to that campground last spring for 2 days. Wanted to see the trains on the Loop. Guess what...they shut the railroad down for maintenance for the whole day and part of the next. Wasn't meant to be I guess. I'd wanted to do that trip for the last 15 years...ticked me off!! I like Dennis's route suggestion the best.

RE: Onan 5500 Generator problem

Once a year I add 6 cans of Seafoam to my gas tank just before a long trip. While that Seafoam is in there I run the generator for at least a half hour to keep the carburetor clean. 10 years old now and about 300 hours on the Onan 5500 with no problems. Have to prime it before you start it.

RE: Oil drain petcock for Cat 300

I've put a Fumoto drain valve on five vehicle so far. Excellent and never had a problem.

RE: pluging in to 110 v when parked

If you are going to leave it plugged in be sure to check your battery water levels at least once a month.

RE: EMERGENCY repairs needed

Let us know if the new board fixes the problem.

RE: EMERGENCY repairs needed

Check the sail switch. When the blower comes on it moves the sail switch which then allows the furnace to ignite the LP. The sail switch should be somewhere near the blower impellers.

RE: Oil change at Camper World

OP....two words...."ROAD TRIP"..!!!.....:B:B....Dennis I agree with Dennis...Think I'd check around and do a trip somewhere that you can find a decent price and a few recommendations from people who have used the facility. $600 seems a bit steep.
