RE: RV's that are Lemons

Thanks Randy, this is the response that I was looking for! The wife and I are thinking about buying a new RV. I'm fearful of the quality of some of the new RV's from consumer complaints that we have been reading (a website other than RV.Net) and I don't want to purchase a Ford Chassis. I'm thinking about a newer used D.P. but didn't want to purchase one that had a lot of trouble. And, I wasn't aware of the term damaged titles, I'll watch for that. I'm not in a hurry to buy and I'm getting close to paying off my Winnebago. Were going to go check out RV's at the Tacoma RV Show this coming October 6th. Hope to meet Gary Bunzer there.

RE: Weather Tech Mats for your tow car.

I bought Husky liners for my F150 due to the poor customer service I received with my WeatherTech mud flaps. I installed the flaps on my Super Duty, in 7,000 miles the paint under them was gone. WeatherTech said they had never heard of such a thing, and after I sent them pictures they offered to sell me a new set for a few $$$ off. When I was researching mats for my truck I read more than a few reports of the WeatherTechs curling, with the Huskys being softer. I'm not saying don't buy WeatherTech, I'm saying look at Huskys too. They're a nice option. Thanks Bruce, I enjoy the luxury of having choices!

RE: RV's that are Lemons

what is the point of this post except to start a major pissing match. I'm sorry you did not read my opening line! I would like to know what happens to a consumer and what happens to a manufacture that is stuck with a high end coach that is deemed a lemon? Why are you critical and judgemental of me because I would like to know? And I'm not trying to start a fight as you accused me that's way I didn't mention a certain brands.

Weather Tech Mats for your tow car.

I was thinking of buying these mats for my CRV! Does anyone own these mats? How do you like them and what is the cost of them.

RV's that are Lemons

I'm writing this post to assume knowledge on both sides of a RV's story if it turns out to be a lemon! I would like to hear from anyone that had a lemon or if you know anyone that had a lemon. First off to the States that do have lemon laws I know that you are afforded some protection. Those States that do not have lemon laws the fight to protect your investment is much harder. If a RV is deemed a lemon by law, does it have to be destroyed or parted out by the manufacture or does the manufacture have the right to resell it or wholesale it? And on the other side of the lemon issue does the consumer get his money back or does that party get another coach from the manufacture?

RE: Future owner questions

major problems were 2015 to 2017 Winnebago, Thor and Tiffin. The two problems that stuck out in my mind were newer Ford Chassis some how, paint was in the fuel system so rooster how could all three manufacturers have paint in the fuel system? and it not be a chassis problem?What's your problem man! Your killing the messenger! I didn't say all 3 manufactures had this problem. Ok no problem I read it wrong I guess so which of the three had paint in the fuel? and any idea how it got there Thanks for the reply Jim, I wasn't being harsh towards you, I didn't want to mention it but, the consumer of the complaint owned a 2017 Winnebago gas coach on a Ford Chassis! And how in the heck paint got into the fuel system is a mystery to me?

RE: Looking for a dishwashing soap with very few bubbles!

RE: Toad hit three times

I can't believe some of the answers from your post. All you need is "Car in Tow" sign to protect yourself. Your not doing anything wrong too many aggressive drivers out there on the road! If the other drivers don't see the toad, why would one think they'd see a sign? And where exactly would you put this sign to ensure that any merger will see it?Great question, I live in Washington State and it's a requirement when towing any car to have a tow bar, lights that work on the rear of vehicle being towed, working brakes on towed vehicle if it's over a certain weight, and a sign on the rear of the vehicle being towed saying, car in tow. I agree with with you a sign won't stop someone from hitting your tow car. It covers all the bases legally in Washington State if your tow car is hit.

RE: Onan Gen Removal

I own a 2004 Winnebago and my genset was dropped to the ground by using a transmission jack.

RE: Class A question

I think there might be a lot of truth in Tom's post before me. I think no matter who Winnebago goes with it's nice to have a change in engine choice. I won't buy a new Class A with a Ford engine after the last one I bought.

RE: Afraid to make the leap to diesel

These days thier just like driving anything else. As to working on them, that's rarely needed and any real repairs are so complicated that just like a modern gas engine, you pretty much have to get the dealer to do things other than normal maint. X-2, I agree with Scott's post! And to be honest with you I don't have the courage to buy a new gas motorhome, especially a Class A.

RE: Where does one find out the wet weight of an RV?

I did the overall weight in my Winnebago W-22 Chassis one time when I bought it new in 2004. I filled all tanks, except for gray and black tank and I didn't weigh with my toad. And my RV was overweight. I never bothered to weigh it again.

RE: HWH slide and jacks problem

Call HWH. They will help you. This is what I did and HWH got right back to me. And if you can't get ahold of HWH then send a PM to Doug Rainer for advice he has a lot of knowledge with HWH systems.

RE: Future owner questions

Andy, I'm just throwing this out there for you to process not trying to be negative O.K. My wife was on a RV Consumer Reports Blog last night and started reading to me all the RVers have major problems with there RV's. And the top 3 manufactures with major problems were 2015 to 2017 Winnebago, Thor and Tiffin. The two problems that stuck out in my mind were newer Ford Chassis some how, paint was in the fuel system and the posters said they went to the RV Manufactures who turned them away saying it was a Ford Chassis problem? Ford sent these people back to the manufactures and these consumers were on a merry go round. The other was a Doctor who bought a high end Tiffin DP! It turned out to be a lemon and the State the Dr. was in had a lemon law. The Dr. with his mass repair receipts drove the coach back to Red Bay Alabama, and met with Bob Tiffin, who refused to take the coach back. The Dr. said he has a lawsuit pending against Tiffin. There were so many complaints on this website it was incredible!

RE: DEF diesel engines

Ken, one advantage to a non DEF engine in Winnebagos is there is room for a basement heat pump. The Winnebagos with a DEF system used the area where heat pump basement is for a DEF tank and moved there A/C system to the roof top! Great Question!

RE: Battery isolator switch?

John, your observation on your batteries is right in the ballpark! I just went thru what your going thru and was told I need to check my batteries more often and start up and run the engine more often. Good Luck

RE: Tires

Ron, let me be the first to welcome you to RV.Net! Yes, you can run different brands on front and rear. I would buy the 2 tires of your choosing from the tire guy that's going to give you the best service!

RE: 235/85/16 Tires - What are you running?

When I bought our 28' Coachman Santara 4 years ago it had 2 year old Les Schwab (Dean Tire & Rubber Co) Wildcat tires, I have always kept the sun side of the MH tires covered when parked and with about 8k on them and loosing one last weekend I want to replace all with new. If I planned on keeping it another 4-6 years I would probably put the Michelin XPS ribs on it (still might anyway). Looking on Schwab's site and Vulcan Tire's site that used to sale the Wildcat it looks as they are not available anymore so looking for a cheaper but better name tire. Any suggestions? Thanks, KeithIf your intent on buying Michelin Tires I would buy the thru FMCA/Michelin Fleet Tire Program. If you buy Michelins thru Les Schwab you will be paying more per tire plus shipping. Buying thru the FMCA/Michelin Fleet Tire Program Michelin will get ahold of you and tell you where to go to buy your tires and you will not be charged for shipping.
