RE: Bath and a half dump station?

DSDP Don, Is the SaniCon system something you add on or is it a system the comes with different coaches? J-Rooster, do all coaches have an Oscillator? The 5 gallons of water with Dawn sounds like a very good idea. Hey Ivylog, is a grinding pump used to break up the solids and is it on all motorhomes? And does it run manually or automatic? The MH I was looking at that prompted my question was a 37' gasser. After watching the video again I still can't tell if they were talking another black tank or gray water tank? I'm happy you guys answere more than I ask for. I don't know enough to know what to ask and your filling in the blank is helpful to the max! IMHO, from what I've seen only higher end RV's have oscillators!

RE: What 22.5 tires are good and won't break the bank?

Join FMCA if you haven't and buy your Michelin tires thru there system. I paid $2400 for 6 22.5 tires. X-2, my local tire shop (Les Schwab) wanted to charge me $520.00 per tire plus shipping for Michelin XRV's. I joined FMCA and bought the XRV's for half of that thru there Michelin Fleet Tire Discount Program! There are only 2 manufactures who build true RV tires and that is Goodyear and Michelin (XRV), they use soft rubber compound to compensate for all the sitting a RV does and they use UV compound in there tires to compensate for UV Rays from the sun. All other tires are hard rubber truck tires.

RE: Use automatic levelors during storage?

I've alway's used my jacks when storing my RV and I've been doing it since 1976! The purpose of this for me is to take weight off the tires. I have Michelin Tires on my RV (XRV's) and Michelin's Quality Tire Care Website advises to use a barrier between your tires and the ground. The reason I do this is to get optimin tire performance and tire care.

RE: Diesel Runaway Engine

I drove Peterbuilts with diesel engines for 44-1/4 and never had this happen, and never heard of this happening until now! Must be very rare.

RE: Daytona 500 camping options please !

Sounds like fun Dave! I'm a West Coast guy that goes to PIR (Phoenix) and it's really cool to see 42,000 RV's parked outside of the Race Track and a mobile Super Market there to serve them.

RE: Bath and a half dump station?

I own a 35-U we have a complete bath all in one room. When I empty the black tank when finished I do 2 things to keep my black tank clean. Use the oscillator to clean the inside of the black tank then drain again. And before I head out anywhere I put 1/2 cup of Blue Dawn and 5 gallons of water down the toilet and let it slush around down in the black tank as I'm driving down the Blvd. (Interstate) it really helps keeping the tanks clean!

RE: I'm yearning to get behind the wheel again.

I'm very happy for you but, I'm the opposite when it comes to driving. I'm a retired truckdriver and after 44-1/4 over the road fighting traffic trying to make my schedules I enjoying being in my coach for 6 months enjoying the view of Lake Havasu! Good Luck, on your driving and your RV Camping.I never thought about that. Makes sense. I wonder if a doctor can look at a beautiful woman the same way as others. Good Point! I know as far as doctoring goes, if I was a GYN I would never miss work or show up late or get tired of my job!

RE: One Piece Windshield Leaks At Top Quick Fix?

The more curvy a windshield is the harder it is to get it in place to stop a leak. I had my windshield on my Winnebago resealed several years ago. Caulking and seals were installed by Novus the windshield couldn't be moved because they are glued in and Novus said most of those windshields break when they are moved. Sounds like you fixed your problem! I also bought a dehumidifier that I keep between the split windshields to keep inside water out and off of the windshield frame. The Winnebago Windshield frames are known to rust out over time so you want to keep condensation out of the inside of the front windshield.

RE: chevy gear heads

Doesn't sound like a bad coil but more like a vapor lock with the fuel pump. Pull the coil wire at the coil and loosen the fuel line. Turn the engine over to see if any fuel comes out of the line. This way you can rule out fuel problem and consider ignition as the problem. X-2, very good advice for a starting point to eliminate your problems. Good Luck, I love Chevy engines I have the newer now obsolete 496 in my coach.

RE: Wind push P-32; Sumo Springs or Super Springs?

I just drive slower to get more control of driving in windy conditions.

RE: Top 10 tips for newbies...

When packing or putting anything in your coach think light! A lot of heavy items can add weight fast to your coach! This advice was giving to me when I first starting RVing in 1976 so I'm passing it on!

Sometimes you just gotta wonder where the OP runs off to, after their original post and without a word to those who tried to help. X-2

RE: Opinions on Class A Quality

If buying used and you don't know the seller it's a mystery? You my buy the best coach ever or a lemon and all brands have made lemons from time to time! More coach history you have the better!

RE: Ever have your fuel siphoned?

That was a crappy story! Dennis thanks for posting the clicky!
J-Rooster 01/26/16 12:07am Class A Motorhomes

I saw at the Tampa RV supershow there is a new class of rv called an RUV,,,to me they are just mini motor homes which Winnebago made for many years called mini-winnie . so they are not really a new thing at all.... I agree the Tacoma RV Show (Washington State) is going on now and there's more smaller RV's there for show than larger units.

RE: Triton V-10

Just make sure its the post 2006 V10 with the 362 HP & 5 speed trann, 6-7 MPG. I've had an older V10 with the 305 HP & 4 speed tranny. AWFUL! The V10 with 305 HP & newer 5 speed Tranny in a small Class'C' is great, 10 mpg. X-2 the 1999 V-10 Triton were know to blow out spark plugs! I know I owned one! the newer V-10 don't do that!
