RE: Recommendations for National Parks in Utah

Moab! We stayed at the Moab Rim Campark 1900 South Hwy. 191 Phone 435-259-5002 very nice park and it don't cost you a lot! Eat at the Brewery in town very good food! We stayed a week and from Moab we visited we visited Arches, Canyonland, went into Colorado and visited National Monument, then back into Utah and we visited Valley of the Gods and Navajo Twin Rocks and Mexican Hat and Monument Valley.

RE: Tire question Again

Got my tire problem solved. I just happened to go to a place that had 6 tires, my size. Another person had ordered them and then decided he didn't want them. They were Michelin just the same as I have on our coach. I think I got a good deal and had them put on the next morning. They were $413.88 each and $40.00 each for mounting and balancing plus tax. The date on them was 44th week 2013. Close enough for me. Problem solved. Thanks for all the help. Good Luck with your new hoop gators! You lucked out getting those tires quickly, and at a good price! I had to wait several weeks (back order) for mine.

RE: Overweight Toad?

Sounds like a lot of folks on here know more about towing and laws of physics than any of them dumb old engineers anyway, so go for it. If you're stopped or have an accident, just tell 'em the guys on RV.net said it was ok....that should work......Dennis Just tell the Police RV.Net said it was O.K.! Another Outstanding Effort Dennis!

RE: Fish line in day/night shades

Monofilament line will cut like a knife and has a chance of damaging your shades. I would recommend using a very soft cotton thread. Thanks for the info! I thought about going with fishing line last time the shades were restrung, but just used string and now glad I did!

RE: How many cubic feet of air does my 16" tire hold?

Wow, that's probably a tough one. But when it comes to dealing with pie, I'd rather just eat it than mathematically try to figure it out! :B X-2, But I admire the OP for his math knowledge!

RE: Allegro Red 33A, Itasca Meridian 34 B or Newmar Ventana LE

I'm not going to tell you what 3 of the coaches to buy that would be a disservice, especially if something should go wrong after you bought it! Just because someone had good luck with there coach does me you are! All 3 are good brand coaches! I would go with the floor plan of the one of the three would that suit your needs best, then check the records on maintenance! Good Luck

RE: Sell it then promise to fix it....seriously

If you decide to buy one of these coaches get what the salesman promises you in writing! If not no deal. It's very strange the repairs posted by you haven't been fixed?

RE: Schwintek Slide slides out while driving

In the late 90's I had trouble with a slide out moving outward while I was driving. I took it to the nearest shop and it was revealed to me that I had a broken Shear Pin. Everything was fixed and I was back on the road in about a 1/2 hour.

RE: Quick Fill Fresh Water Tank

In my Winnebago (Water Department Storage Compartment), I have a water selector switch! City water goes directly to all my coach inside faucets. Water tank fill goes to my water tank reservoir that fills my fresh water tank. I have the choice of watching the water filling into my tank by opening a storage cabinet door. Are I can rely on my inside tank water fill gauges. Hope this helps you!

We also have one at home in our stick built! Enjoy it very much!

RE: Overweight Toad?

Most likely 700 lbs. won't be a towing issue! If you get into an accident and the investigation reveals your towing over hitch recommendations, then you will be liable and possibly sued if your insurance company refuses to pay due to your negligence.

RE: motorhome purchase

My last and current coach I bought new! I almost bought a Holiday Rambler Ambassador DP it was 3 years old, it had high miles 22,000, and the inside was very worn! There was no maintenance records on the coach and that was a deal breaker with me, because I had no history on the engine and didn't know what I was getting into with this used coach! I went ahead and bought new that way I new what I had. I don't understand your time limit of 5 years? Are you going to quit RVing in 5 years regardless if your healthy and have extremely good luck with the coach?

RE: Dolly,trailer or tow?

Go to Remco Indutries or Blue Ox websites to see if your rig can be towed 4 down/find an RV dealership that sells those products. Some model years of certain makes are not towable 4 down. Also, check your owner's manual...it should tell you if it is towable and the recommended method/what you have to do to make that possible. Do that 1st and you'll know which method is possible rather that decide which you want to do. X-2, Remco will be your only way to tow 4 down if it's applicable unless your Toyota is a stick shift.

RE: Class A toad caught on fire

1) a rear camera won't show a flat tire. We had a flat and couldn't even feel a difference in the pull. The monitor can't show a view from the side. A motorist pulled alongside and gave us that dreaded hand signal. We were riding on the rim by that time. We immediately installed tire presser sensors on all tires - motorhome and toad. 2) RE: a safe hidden in a rear closet, etc. Ours is portable and is kept by the front door and is easy to grab when we leave the motorhome. We don't have a safe for intruders as the chances of that are almost nonexistent. 16 years of full-timing, lots of boondocking in remote places and talking to full-timers constantly, and have never heard of an instance of intruders. Yes, it 'could' happen but if it does so be it. Our concern is having our important documents, etc. ready to grab on exit. If we're in a shop for servicing our documents go with us in the toad for the day. I understand that it won't show a flat tire I've been RVing since 1976! I was referring to smoke! The rear camera will show black smoke billing out back there!

RE: Replacing the old one

The Damon is officially home. Drives very nice. Now have to learn all the ins and outs. Since it's home may as well sleep in it tonight! Have fun in your new coach SP!

RE: How does a Honda Fit Sport do as a TOAD ??

The Fit will also be my next tow vehicle! I just don't know what year I want to buy? I'm awaiting info on the 2015 to see if they can be towed all 4 down, which I prefer.

RE: RV Height

Don't trust the published height. Measure it yourself! X-2, measure the air conditioners from the roof up. Then measure your coach roof from the ground up! Add both numbers then write it with a magic marker on the lower drivers corner of your windshield. Whenever, you see a low height just look down in the lower corner of your windshield and you will immediately know if you can clear! Good Question!
