RE: RV Driver killed racing at NY Racetrack

As everyone knows RV's are not set up to race! Was there a failure in his roll cage or roll bar? You can't get on a legal sanctioned race track in these types of vehicles without protection? The only RV race that I heard of is when Chinook RV out of Yakima, WA. many years ago took one of there coaches off the production line. And took it to a race track to see how fast it would go. It was a gasser, big block chevy (8.1) and it did 101 mph and this took place at speed week on the salt flats to set and new land speed record for RV's.

RE: Tire Advise and Opinions

IMO, Buying tires based on price alone is a fools game. Doesn't matter how far you travel. Doing so on cheap tires can have disastrous, even fatal, results......Dennis I agree with you 100 percent, However Dayton tires are the second tier of Bridgestone tire company. I see no reason to pay $400 a tire when a $200 tire will do just as good on a GVWR 18000 Lb Rig. Especially when it is driven so little and mostly short trips. If it was a GVWR 26000 Lb rig or heavier I could see spending more for a Michlin or Goodyear tire for RV's. JMHO. Mel Goodyear and Michelin if your not aware make the only true RV tire. There made out of very soft rubber especially for RV applications due to all the time sitting in one place that RV's endure. All other tires are hard rubber truck tires. Just wanted you to be aware of this! Good Luck in what ever tire you purchase.

RE: What has happened to Winnebago Quality?

Jim, I bought my Winnebago Adventurer new in 2004 my third one. And, I have had very little trouble the last 11 years. I've alway's wanted a new Winnebago every year but, I have been fearful of purchasing one that might not be as good as mine and regretting it! So I have made a conscience decision to keep mine and run it into the ground. In fact a gentleman knocked on my stick built door a few weeks ago and offered to buy my coach. I told him it wasn't for sale. I have had good fortune with that coach and don't want to give it up. You just reinforced my decision, sorry to hear about your problems and thanks for the heads up on 2015 Winnebago.

RE: Front shock replacement tips?

Be sure to check your VIN before ordering shocks! This might not apply to you but my coach has a 2003 chassis with a 2004 living area mounted on the chassis. Therefore, my coach was registered as a 2004. My coach manufacture changed chassis in 2004 so 2004 shocks will not fit on my 2003 chassis. Just a heads up to you! Good Luck

RE: Weighing Motorhome

sew0177, You can go crazy trying to get those four corners weighed. I myself have really not put to much into that. Yep, there'll be a few pounds difference to be sure but, as I've stated many times, in my case, even if I did find that much difference, based on my compartment layout and, the way things are organized etc., I wouldn't change anything. I've weighed my coach, twice and, the tire pressure chart dictates just what's supposed to be in there. I don't add anything. I figure they pretty much know what to suggest, being that THEY made the tires. The coach handles perfect, the tires wear flawlessly, the mpg is what it is. I've had those tires as much as 15 lbs. higher than what's called for and, the mileage IS THE EXACT SAME only, it rode a lot rougher. If you get it weighed, front and back, then do the math and, apply it to the recommended tire pressure for your specific tires, you'll be just fine. Scott X-2, My Winnebago is overweight when full of water, gas, propane, etc.

RE: Is this the start of Workhorse again? Isuzu?

GM And Isuzu have been cross branding the N series for many years. But something must have happened to that agreement as Isuzu now markets the trucks themselves and GM does not sell them. We have 2 in our small fleet. One is an Isuzu NPR and the other is a Chevrolet 4500. They are twins! MoishehThanks for the info Moisheh! Workhorse is clearly not involved in this project!

RE: ABS light on and left front tire brake very hot

My guess would be a caliper problem! And if your traveling downhill and apply the brakes hard frequently this will cause the brakes to overheat and burn the ABS sensor up. This can happen quickly even when you think you were not riding the brakes hard.

RE: Sta-Bil Fuel Stabilizer

I've always used Sta-Bil in my fuel tank for many years with no problems. Anytime that my coach is going to sit 3 months or longer Sta-Bil goes into my fuel tank. I have a Big Block Chevy gas engine in my RV.

RE: Omaha

I would leave it at one of the casinos on the Iowa side of the river. They are only a few miles from the airport with 24hr security. You might even be able to use the shuttle service. Ameristar, Harrah's, or Horseshoe. Council Bluffs Ia. Horseshoe even has RV hookups. X-2

RE: Towing a Prius

Towing a Prius all 4 wheels down can be done if it has a standard transmission. I towed my Toyota Yaris all 4 wheels down (Standard Transmission) for years with no problems! If it's a automatic transmission I'm not sure!

RE: Dry Cleaning Fiberglass Roof

Anyone who's been on one of these fiberglass roofs, AFTER it's not been cleaned for quite some time, will tell you how bad it is, especially if it's been stored outside or, has been on the road for a while. Since the surface is horizontal, it will collect dirt/dust/debris/leaves etc. Getting up there and just "fluffing" it off with something less than soap and water and a brush, just ain't gonna cut it. To me, that goes along with the sides too. If that coach is DIRTY, as in you can SEE the dirt on it, I'm personally not going to grind it into the paint. It takes a good wetting to loosen the dirt etc. that's on the there and then, a soft brush/mop to scrub it off (with plenty of water) so there's no damage to the paint, then, a good rinse. I don't mind evaluating, testing and using new products if, they fit the bill but, cleaning a dirty motor home with less than soap and water, just won't happen on mine. Sorry. Scott In California wetting anything is discouraged, especially in central Ca.:) X-2, This could be the product of the future in drier States in the U.S.
