RE: 30 ft- one roof air sufficient?

I owned a 31' coach a long time ago that had one air conditioner and it didn't do well in temps from 90* to 127* that I've been in with that coach.

RE: Residential vs Repair RV Fridge

Owning a Winnebago with a glued windshield taking the windshield out is a no go for me.

RE: RE Even new rigs need to be inspected My Winnebago story

Sorry to hear about your problems and hope you get them fixed correctly and have no further problems. It's important to get all the bugs out. I hope Winnebago takes care of you. I love Roy Robinson RV outstanding customer service. We bought are Winnebago new from Roy Robinson back in Jan. 2004 and it's still going strong with very little problems.

RE: Spare Parts To Carry

I've been RVing since 1976 and I don't carry any spare parts with me outside of light bulbs and fuses.

RE: wifi and tv upgrades?

Any B-Ham RV Dealer should be able to give you references to get your needs taken care of.

RE: Do you name your baggage compartments?

I use curbside storage compartment (forward or rear) or driver side storage compartment (forward or rear) to the DW.

RE: Workhorse Dash Background Color Changed

I don't know if this involves your coach or not, but Workhorse had a dashboard cluster panel recall several years ago. It's my understanding that the dashboard cluster isn't considered a road safety issue by the feds so recall notices were not sent out to RV owners. To those like myself who haven't had this problem taking care of yet, it's my understanding that this recall will be taking care of by Workhorse at a Workhorse Dealer for no charge.

RE: Shurflo water pump left running!

Shurflo Pumps have a Thermal Overload built in system. IF the motor runs too long with no load, the motor heats up and the Thermal switch stops the motor. When the Pump cools down, it functions again. From the Shurflo owners manual. Doug Is the motor hot? Thermal breaker may have triggered; it will reset when cool. 4 Gallons per Minute55 PSI, 10 Amps Max, High PerformanceReduced Cycling with Flow Reaction Technologymooth, High Powered FlowRuns Dry Thermally ProtectedSelf Priming to 6 Vertical FeetInternal Bypass-Low CyclingBuilt In Check Valve Prevents Back Flow I had no idea that those pumps are that durable!

RE: Lost a pin on the tow bar. Don't use these pins!!

had you recently stopped at a rest area? i had both removed at a rest area,don't know if a trucker didn't like to share or a kid but i was lucky to notice it before we moved. now use locking one I'm a retired trucker and I or anyone that I ran with wouldn't even think of doing something like that. It could kill someone!I had 10,000's of cars cut me off in my 44 years of driving over the road which made me mad, but I would never pull someone's pin are do anything evil to someone on the highway.

RE: Blowout

This is not a slam against Hancook Tires! Any tire as you know can blow! I'm throwing this tire blow out problem back on you. How do you feel about your Hancook tires after what you experienced with them on the road! If you don't trust them anymore, then it's time to switch!

RE: Mountain driving

If you feel that you are braking too much going down hill, then manually shift down one gear and see how that goes! If that works then your where you want to be on a downgrade. If not and your on a extremely steep downgrade (like Chinook Pass in Washington State, West Side of pass) drop two gears manually. On I-90 highway speeds with the Jake On and slight braking should do the trick for you. I've drove diesels (semi's) my whole adult life (44-1/4 years) just so you know who is giving you this advice. And on your dehumidifier I take mine everywhere I travel especially in the Northern Tier States where your going. Good Luck in your travels.

RE: Shift Inhibit and a crash

Paul, IMHO this needs to be seriously looked into! With all the experience your wife has driving RV's I would rule out operator error. It sounds like to me that this would of happened if you were behind the wheel. The coach shouldn't have lurched forward like that? Good Luck and keep us posted!

RE: Need new spare tire carrier whinch

Sir, If it's what I think, a tiny winch located under the coach to lift and hold a spare tire, you can get those at any wrecking yard that handles trucks, pickups that is. I've mounted several of them over the years. I think you're looking at oh, maybe around $20.00 or so for a good one. They don't get used all that often so, just about all of them are good. You may have to do a tad bit of adapting to make it fit but, it's better than spending whatever the factory wants for that same part, I guaranty it. Good luck Scott X-2, solid advice to mount under coach! Mounting a tire in back of coach above rear bumper will not be covered by insurance due to it causes too much extra damage if involved in any type of rear accident, regardless if your hit from rear or back into something, that's why there not mounted there anymore.

RE: Buying a used tire to carry as a spare?

Brian, I would purchase a used tire no older than 6 to 8 years old for a spare preferable newer than that if I could get it at a fair price. I run the same tire size as you so if I have tire trouble I hope your around to lend me a spare? Very solid idea to carry a spare, but I don't want to give up the storage space! As you know I've been RVing since 1976, and haven't had any major tire problems to this date and I'm praying for my luck to continue.
