RE: class a tires

We went to see the space shuttle in Houston, Texas a few years ago. Guess what tires they used on the space shuttle...Michelins. That's all I run on all my cars and coach.

RE: seat covers

I agree with J-Rooster. Check a local upholstery shop. I recently had my drivers' seat redone on my Lexus RX300 at a local upholstery shop in Fresno, California for about $180.

RE: Average Maintenance Costs

Works out to about $1,200 a year for tires,brakes,oil,engine repair,etc over the past 80,000 miles and 11 years. I do my own oil, transmission and filters.

RE: Anti rodent asian beetle treatment

What I use. I spray my undercarriage and furnace/refrigerator area about three times a year with this stuff. Also my sticks and bricks. Buy mine at Lowes and Home Depot. I suspect it's cheaper than what you are looking at.

Speaking of Autoformers...what is a ballpark price for one, installed?

RE: Wiper blades

You may get a laugh out of this, but I still just buy the rubber replacements. I order them through summit racing, I order the longest ones I can, usually 22 or 24 inch blade replacements. I order at least a dozen at a time. Then I cut them to fit the vehicle. moho, truck car or what not. Cheap and saves me time hunting around for the stupid correct blade holder.... Holy Cow...a dozen at a time? How often do you change them? In 12 years I've done mine twice.

RE: Allison Tranny Oil

2004 and prior W22 chassis came with Dexron iii. 2005 and up came with Transynd. Do NOT use Dexron 6. If you are doing it yourself you need to drain the transmission into a bucket that has quart markings on the side. Refill with exactly that amount. It will usually be about 11 quarts. Drive the coach 15 to 20 miles and then drain the transmission again and refill. That is what Allison recommends for a complete change. Allison says do NOT do a pressure flush. You need to replace the spin-on filter. There is a magnet at the base of it that needs to go on the new filter. I suggest using Transynd if it doesn't already have it. I've changed my transmission fluid four times now over the past 12 years/80,000 miles. It's a easy as changing your engine oil and filter. the unit only holds 13 quarts so to me NO one in their right mind would put in 11 quarts of High$$ 295 oil and drive 20 miles and drain and refill over the dilution of 2 quarts of dex111 or whatever You need to read the Allison transmission page to find out how to do a complete change and then you will understand. You can't completely drain all the old fluid out, a lot stays in the converter. Hence they recommend a double drain and refill. One time I let it drain for two days. No help. Believe me I'm not happy about it but that's how it is. Although I'm not in my right mind anyways so it doesn't matter.

RE: Air Conditioner Shroud

My A/C covers had cracks across the top and the mounting holes were cracked/broken. I priced new ones and they were over $100 each. No way. So I duct taped the inside of the covers and reinforced the mounting holes and used rubber gaskets under the mounting screws. I've painted mine to match the color of the coach so after my repair job I painted them again and they look like new. They sure are flimsy.

RE: New Aftermarket Engine Starter

I have sworn off aftermarket parts, too many failures. The parts were replaced but I still had to change them out again, some twice.

RE: Facebook Groups

To get back to question the op asked: another one to consider is RVillage. Lots of good information. Looked at it and wondered if you got a lot of Email advertising from them.

RE: Matthew

How do they handle a wreck on those escape routes? Is there a special procedure set up? I know they close the other lanes and redirect traffic to use them but 500,000 people on the road fleeing could soon become a quagmire I suspect.

RE: Matthew

I'm curious what the highways looked like with people evacuating. It would seem to me that a massive traffic jam would occur as it only takes one wreck to hose up the traffic on a good day.

RE: Towing a vehicle. What kind of set up

Remco Towing Information Remco will tell you what cars are able to be towed 4 down and what to do if yon need to modify them. It will also tell you if it can't be pulled on a dolly.
