RE: Will Hymer Bring Their Class A To America?

Well, they will have to come here because Germany has banned diesels.

RE: P/N of Serpentine Belt ?

Side Note: The belt tensioner on the 8.1 Chevy motors were known to have issues and make noise. They're cheap and I would replace the tensioner when you change the belt, especially since it's 11 years old. I've replaced two noisy tensioners.

RE: Newbie buying 2002 Monaco LaPalma

I have a 2004 Monaco La Palma 36 DBD. We bought it new in 2004 and have put 87,000 miles on it so far going all around the country. If I had it to do over again I'd buy it again. Make sure the brake recall has been done. If it has the Norcold 1200 4 door refrigerator make sure the safety recall has been done. Has the Allison 1000 transmission been switched to Transynd? Mine has been in the shop a couple times for exhaust manifolds. I suggest Thorley or Banks. Replace the plugs and wires and also clean the MAF. MAF being clean is very important. Actia dash LCD readout almost always go bad. I'm on my third. That's the display that tells you what gear you are in. Put new tires on it. Had an inside dual blow on mine...$12,000 to repair. Insurance covered it. Make sure you get windshield insurance...just got mine replaced last month, $1,395. Again AAA insurance covered it. You will probably need shocks.

Have you ever lubricated it?

RE: Anyone planning on traveling in Pennsylvania - take note

I think it's a good idea to shut down the roads to RV's. An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.

RE: Getting ready to buy a Winnebago Sunstar 29VE Class A

The layout is the most important thing and if you both like it that is great. If you decide to tow 4 down Remco will tell you what cars are towable and what is necessary to make them towable if they need modifications. Remco Website

RE: Busting the Myth of 5 year tire life.

The 5 year comes from the ST trailer tires I believe. Some of those should be 5 days in my opinion. Amen!! If I ever buy another trailer the first thing I will do is go put an expensive set of tires on it.

RE: What ladder do you keep in motorhome

I carry my 5' aluminum ladder on the back ladder of the coach.

RE: Front diesel engine

Would the front end diesels be cheaper to work on than the rear engine diesels?

RE: Workhorse 8.1L Low Oil Pressure

2003 and only 5k miles, is this a rebuilt/replacement engine? How long has this been happening? Did it occur before the last oil change? Took the words out of my mouth....

RE: Hi Tech Safety Gear

Several times I have seen strange white lines that were very confusing and I always wondered what the automated self driving cars would do with them. They just approved driverless cars in California last week. Gonna be interesting to say the least. Huh, last time I was in CA most seemed driverless anyway, just like CO :) I can't make up my mind if driverless cars will be better or worse...There are some people driving here who are mindless.

RE: Workhorse 8.1L Low Oil Pressure

Are you low on oil? When was the last time you changed oil and filter? Who did it? You have the Actia dash gauges and Actia has a known problem of randomly setting off the alarm and all gauges pegging. It then resets itself and all is well. Mine will do it several times a year. Used to scare me half to death, now I just ignore it. What do you have to do to clear the oil light?

RE: GPS for steep grades

Sandy & Shirley....I'm curious where you are staying in Oakland...RV parks are scarce in that area.

RE: Hi Tech Safety Gear

My Garmin Dash Cam 55 is supposed to have lane departure warning and forward gap warning (approaching slower or stopped vehicle too fast). My first trip with it will be next month. Do you have to calibrate/align it initially for lane departure? How do you make it NOT warn you if you purposely change lanes? I assume it needs white lines to work...?

RE: GPS for steep grades

Are there any units or phone apps that will warn us when we are approaching a steep grade? Would love to hear something like, “7% grade 5 miles ahead”. We will be traveling from Maryland to Oakland and back again this April and May. The plan is to unhook the toad and drive each unit separately up or down steep grades. None of the road atlases we have seen seem to give a good definition of what grades are where, we have heard that there are apps and systems that will do that. Any help pointing us towards the products we should consider would be appreciated. Thanks Have you picked a route yet? If, for example, you are going to use I80 I'd suggest removing your toad at the Boomtown exit and then hook up again near Sacramento.

RE: 2004 National Seabreeze help while work in progress.

4. The hydraulic levelers are slow.....Spray with WD 40 or use transmission fluid on them. I lube mine every year. 6. Do I want a Sewer Solution...... NO 8. The engine A/C doesn't work....can be anything from low on R134 ($20) to a bad compressor ($1200). You should convert the transmission fluid to Transynd if it hasn't been done already.

RE: CA licensing

More information, please. At what point (size, length, weight?) does that Non-Com Class A license become required? Is there any RV that requires a Class A CDL? Statutory references? The non-com requirements start on page 2. Recreational Vehicles and Trailers Handbook I found no references that would require a CDL for private use non-commercial operation of an RV in CA. Notice that is dated 2011.

RE: CA licensing

With a Basic Class C License: a 2-axle vehicle with a GVWR of 26,000 pounds or less. a 3-axle vehicle weighing 6,000 pounds gross or less. a motorized scooter. any housecar 40 feet or less. A farmer or employee of a farmer may also drive: any combination of vehicles with a Gross Combination Weight Rating (GCWR) of 26,000 pounds or less if used exclusively in agricultural operations and it is not for hire or compensation. ===================== Above is from "California Driver License Classes" that toedtoes posted. Looks to me anything over 26,001 lb or over 40 feet needs the Class B noncommercial license.
