RE: Rotate tires on Class A YES OR NO ( why?)

I'm not a tire expert! But I have a lot of experience being around tires! I have never rotated a tire on my Semi 44-1/4 years driving over the road (logged over 4 million miles) and, I have never rotated a tire on my RV and I've been RVing since 1976. My tire guy told me not to and I believed him, never asked him why, just did what I was told.

RE: Bbq

Grill We have had a George Forman (round ) Electric grill for the last 5 years and it works great.Gets VERY hot if you want it too. Has a ribbed solid surface teflon like grill> Plugs into the outside patio plug and keeps the smoke etc outside No flame easy clean up. We also carry a small charcoal grill for some occasions but the electric gets used the Most. X-2, I love mine!

RE: Workhorse Chasis Service

I'm not in your area but when I'm home I use a Chevrolet Dealership in Tacoma and when I'm in Lake Havasu City, AZ. I use Joe's Automotive and RV both are authorized Workhorse Dealers. I would give your local Chevy Dealer a call! My Workhorse is a 2004!

RE: Why I own a MH continued

I would use a large carry on bag when flying (I travel light) it goes on and off the plane with me! No waiting for suitcases for me.

RE: Need some tires

FYI, Michelin & Goodyear make the only soft rubber tires for RV applications! All other tires are truck tires not designed for all the long sitting periods that most RV's require. Good Luck in your tire search.

RE: The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly

I bought a Fleetwood RV new in 1999 and it was hands down the worst coach that I ever owned! I will give Fleetwood credit they happily fixed everything with an apology! All kinds of things were going wrong with that coach and it was never ending and, I finally traded it in due to I didn't trust it going down the road anymore. This experience soured me on Fleetwood!

I didn't take my toad one time on a trip to South Dakota. I rented a car for a week and I enjoyed the experience.

RE: Inverter

I own a 04 Winnebago and my inverter is located under my gas range. There is a drawer under the range, I pull out the drawer and I'm looking right at the inverter.

RE: looking to buy 2006 itasca sunrise....but....

If there is no signs of leaking your good to go IMHO! I own a 04 Adventurer my 11th year and I've had very little problems with my coach! Love it and still not interested in trading it in! Welcome to RV.Net and you asked a great question.

RE: Looking for Fishing Pole Storage Soulutions

I bought a large plastic tube at Camping World that has a screw cap on the end of it. The poles fit right inside of it! Works great!

RE: RV Manufacturer versus Tire Company air pressure settings

The correct tire pressure is the pressure that gives you the best ride while going down the road. You will have to experiment with tire pressures (every time that you go out) to find what works best for you. I own a Winnebago and the manuals (Winnebago & Michelin) said 75 lbs. psi rear and 90 lbs. psi front. That didn't work for me it caused my coach to have tire squirm (wishy, washy, side to side feeling) I experimented with tire pressure and found 100 lbs. psi all around (all 6 tires) gave me the best ride! I got a good ride and my tires lasted 10 years at that tire pressure. Also be aware the lower the tire pressure (psi) that you run inside your tires the more heat builds up inside your tire! High heat is a enemy to tire wear and tire failure. Not trying to scare you just inform you to help you make a correct decision. I'm not a tire expert but I'm a retired over the road trucker 44-1/4 years driving and have owned a RV since 1976 so I know a little bit about tires, I've been around them most of my adult life. Great Question

RE: shortest tag axle class A?

The shortest tag axle that I've seen on a Class A RV has been 38 feet! That RV was stuck in the sand along side the Rogue River about 12 miles upstream from it's mouth (Gold Beach). He had the best spot on the River until it was time to leave. There was a bridge and a campground with a unimproved side road going out to the River from the campground.

RE: VERY VERY Confused - 2008 Bounder 38P

Please correct me if I'm wrong isn't the 8.1 in a 2008 Workhorse a Chevy engine and not a Ford?

RE: To cover or not?

Winnebago and many extended warranties forbid covering because of the risk of condensation under the cover causing interior rot in the coach. The humidity in Arizona during the winter is only 8%, very low condensation! IMHO, somehow keep it out of the sun if it's stored outside!

RE: Invisi-Brake

Rather than post how I set mine up (different vehicle), I e-mailed Roadmaster. Here is the reply: The short answer is that we recommend 65 lbs. for the 2005 Honda CRV. Also, we have a reference chart that states the recommended pressure for many popular towed vehicles: http://roadmasterinc.com/pdf/inv_resource_guide.pdf The long answer is that the pressure we recommend assumes the cable has been attached to the brake pedal arm as low as it can be mounted so that it is just above the brake pad you step on. Some installers mount the cable higher on the brake arm which reduces leverage. In these cases a higher air pressure is required to achieve the same braking performance. Thanks for posting the the clicky Brett! Great information you passed along again!

RE: Where have all the ladders gone?

I don't think not having a ladder is a cost issue. How much could it actually cost after all when compared to a $200,000 mh? However, it may have a big impact on liability. Someone gets up on the roof and while getting down they fall and sue. Claim the ladder encouraged them to get on the roof, or the ladder was a bad design or otherwise faulty. I don't feel comfortable using the ladder on the back of my mh but is is better than using a extension ladder. As a former insurance adjuster from years back, I can tell you ladders are huge liability issues. You are probably correct. The MH manufacturers probably figured it's better to leave the ladder off which leaves the owner to figure out a way to get on the roof and if they fall they sue whomever built the ladder they did use. But I can see a good (or sleazy) lawyer going after the MH builder and claiming their client would not have been on the portable ladder had it not been for the MH not having a fixed ladder and therefore it's still their fault. I agree with the liability issue with ladders! I was told the same thing from Winnebago about spare tires and liability issues!
