RE: your opinion on appliance age

I bought my Winnebago Adventurer new in January 2004 and all appliances in the coach are original and are still in good working order after 10 years of use.

RE: Explain DOT Tire Certification

I'm researching tire prices for a set of 295/80R 22.5 tires. The prices vary "all over the place" from the "junk" Chinese brands to $800-$900 for American brands like Goodyear. When someone posts on here asking for tire recommendations, the responses are like wise "all over the place". Things like poor workmanship, cheap untrained labor, inferior materials are mentioned, especially for foreign brands. It's all very confusing to me. How much latitude is there in the DOT tire spec? What is the difference in the $200.00 tire and the $900.00 tire if they are both certified under the same spec? There are LOTS of opinions posted on here. They vary wildly. Where can I get straight answers? Tom, whatever you buy make sure the DOT Stamp is within 6 months of new (when they were made), and get the highest sidewall rating possible!

RE: 2014 Honda CRV Toad... Totally Almost Confused...

Is your 2014 CR-V 2WD or AWD? I have just returned from towing my 2014 CR-V AWD for over 4,000 miles with 4 wheels down. I am not aware of any difficulties doing that. After running through the gears for a few seconds each, and 3 minutes in neutral and the key in the "1" position, you are good to go. It does say not to tow it over 65 mph. Thanks for the info Ron! We might buy a 2014 Honda CRV this week thru Costco.

RE: Going from short class A to long(ish) class A

IMHO, you should be OK just allow a little more room for length!

RE: Odorlos and Rid-X RV

Rid-X is for septic tanks last I heard. It does not work fast like Happy Camper. I dump like once a week both tanks and no smell at all. But I have seen some in RV parks when they dump, they just about run the neighborhood out of the park. They use just water and not much at that. So they get all kinds of problems with toilet pyramid problems because of the lack of water. Stinky all around, no enzymes to eat up the waste. Some are just stubborn and will not do it. Not even for the sake of the guy parked right next to them. LOL! Ray, my friend you can lead a horse to water but you can't make him drink!

RE: Toad battery

I only know of two modifications that seem to work for most people. One is to pull the fuse that powers the accessories. The other is to run a charging line from your coach to the toad's battery to keep it charged up. If you use a braking system that uses the toad's battery, this would be the preferred method of keeping the battery charged up. If you pull the fuse, the electrical plug may not be powered, so the charging line may be your only good solution. Finally, you could stop every few hours and run the toad's engine to recharge the battery. X-2, on the charged line!

RE: Check Antenna Light

I own a 2004 Winnebago, when I first start my coach the Antenna light and buzzer come on for about 15 seconds then go off. It's just a warning device in my coach to encourage you to get out of the coach and look to see if the Antenna is down. The Antenna light and buzzer does not effect the starting of my coach. There is a electrical plug to the device in my coach that you can use to disarm the buzzer and light.

RE: Odorlos and Rid-X RV

RV Digest is what you want to use in your holding tanks it cleans your holding tank sensors while it's eating up your solid matter inside your tanks. It's also safe for the environment when it's time to dump your tanks.

RE: Worry About Possible Problems

I just do the proper maintenance and let everything take care of itself! I have no worries in life just challenges and circumstances! When they arise I take care of them and that is the end of that. I'm not going to stress over anything that hasn't happened yet!

RE: 2004 Workhorse R-Vision TrailLite Motorhome Dash LCD Display

Mine did that too.. Turns out there is a Technical Service Bulletin out on them, this is not a recall since it is NOT a safety issue.. But what it means is if you take it to a authrized service center you just might leave happy. As i said,,, Mine went out.. ON THE WAY to said authorized service center :). I did not even have to make an appointment to get it fixed, Just and "Oh, by the way, on the way here....." Since the OP's coach is a 2004, it would be subject to the recall, 50402-C, that was a safety recall since it affected the calibration of the Actia dash that affected the ABS system. This recall was for 2003 and 2004 Workhorse chassis RV's. There may have been a TSB for later year coaches but the OP should first check to see if the recall was performed on his coach, which can be found by entering his VIN number at the Workhorse registration. Thanks for the info! Rooster

RE: Very Scary Tow Car Breakaway

I pre check (double check) and post check double check and always check when I stop anywhere on the road! I drove a set of doubles OTR for 44-1/4 years and I never had anything break apart on me. That's how people can get killed!

RE: CB Radio?

I'm retired now but when I ran OTR I used a Galaxy DX 44 Set, Turner Astatic Mic, 12' coax cable and a 6' Firestik antenna, mirror mounted. It's hard to beat this combination and many OTR's are still running these. I also used but don't recommend to you a 250 watt amp (for emergency purposes only and, I had that marked on the amp) and I had all the funny channels. I currently don't own a CB radio and I don't want one in my coach after having to listening to them 5 day's in a row, 52 weeks, and 44-1/4 years.

RE: Are large gas motor Rv's underpower?

No, My Chevy 8.1 Vortec engine (496 C.I.D.) can climb any mountain pass that I've been on 60 MPH with no problem. I drive 45 MPH now to save on fuel. Interesting Question, Happy Trails!

RE: Personalized plates

My wife and I support Washington State Parks so we have a special license plate honoring Washington State on our RV and Tow vehicle. The main feature on the license plate is a picture of Spokane Falls in all of it's wild glory!

RE: Oregon & Washington folks heading south in the winter

I've only had to wait one day (once) going over the Siskiyous on I-5 in all the years we go down to Lake Havasu City, AZ and back. Interstate-5 is a major commerce trucking route linking North & South the Western United States with Mexico and Canada, therefore I-5 gets high priority for it's roadwork to keep it free of ice and snow. I've seen it snow and get real icy on the coast route, when the temps really drop and a bad storm goes thru the Cali/Ore border areas. I always stick with the I-5 route, more business if you need services, more lane choices and wider road then the coast route.

RE: W22 or W24 chassis

Mick, IMHO, a Workhorse W-22 Chassis comes with coaches 36' in length or less and Workhorse W-24 Chassis comes with coaches 37' in length or more.

RE: Diesel --- front engine -vs- rear engine

A friend of mine owns a Winnebago Journey D.P. (rear engine) and he had to add insulation over the engine compartment because the engine noise was so loud he couldn't sleep back there when his wife was driving! I owned Harley Davidsons all my life and I'm grateful for Honda and the Goldwing because, Honda motorcycle technology has forced Harley to build better bikes IMHO!
