RE: Insurance Recommendations

We had Geico for the last 10 years. A runaway truck hit our RV several years ago and they completely took care of us (the agent checked in with us everyday until the claim was fixed we were on the road at that time). Great service and they never raised our rates! Good Luck in whoever you choose.

RE: leveler down lite came on

I had this happen to me twice in my Winnebago (a long time ago) I was driving highway speeds and the jacks down light came on. I pulled over and checked and all my levelers were in the up position. The only common thing both times is the outside heat was between 105* to 110* both times and it never happened again.

RE: How many RV batteries is to much for a trip

I just use the original set of batteries that my RV came with! I change the old batteries out every 4 years and have a solar trickle charger to keep them charged when I'm not traveling.

RE: Decals!!!

Have all them removed and never go back to decals, have stripes painted on. Tim, sooner or later I'm going to remove mine and not go back with them. I keep mine half way decent by using Aerospace #303 every 3 months but, I'm getting tired of doing that. When, I have stripes painted on it will free up a lot of time to be used elsewhere.

RE: Tips for keeping mice out?

I had at one time a horrible rodent problem! The rodents chewed up the wiring harness to my genset! I've tried everything suggested on RV.Net and was successful with three Peppermint Oil, Steel Wool and Pestchaser Pro. I quit using Peppermint Oil due to it was too much work constantly soaking the cotton balls in all the nooks and crannies in a RV. The Pestchaser Pro made by Victor is a electronic device 10 times larger then those small electronic devices that you plug into a wall outlet! It kind of resembles a small boom box! Lastly, I used #00 Course Steel Wool! I used cases of this stuff and packed it tightly behind every drawer and runway that I could get too in my RV. I can honestly tell you that I haven't had any rodents in my RV since, and it's been several years now! I went all out because I don't want anymore $1,000.00 repairs due to rodents. I finally got real aggressive with them! Good Luck

RE: Secure internet access?

Verizon has a pay as you go plan X-2, and they have the best coverage of the Tri State area (AZ.,CA.,NV.) of the Southwest.

RE: tire rotation

No! I was told that by Michelin and my local tire shop! I've been RVing since 1976 and never have rotated a RV tire! Why? As long as you don't change the direction of rotation, why would there be a problem. You could be right! I'm just following instructions from my tire shop!

RE: Where do you get service work done

I take my RV to a local shop for repairs! Works out very well for me because the old guy that owns the shop retired and turned the shop over to his son. The old guy has the the same RV as mine so the son has very good knowledge when working on my coach.

RE: Breaking News

Just found out today that General RV has bought out ALL of the Fleetwood sales and warranty work. We just bought a 2015 Southwind from Camping World and now they can't fix the items on our brand new motorhome that are under warranty. We now have to take it to General RV for the warranty work. At this point we don't know if it is throughout the who Nation or just Florida. I live out West and never heard of General RV! Sounds like Fleetwood does not want to have two Fleetwood Dealerships in a close proximity!

RE: Resale Diesel or Gas

If I was buying a coach used gas or DP, I would be interested in a good price, proof that the coach has been well maintained!

RE: The Workhorse Isn't

RE: Where can I buy large tire covers

If they fit the Adcos are fine. I've had a set for at least 6 or 7 years, year round , and they've held up well. X-2, I bought mine at CW!

RE: Michelin tire sidewall issue

I've been running Michelin XRV's on my coach for 2 decades with no problems.
J-Rooster 10/17/14 11:14pm Class A Motorhomes

I've owned both and found out Class A steers better than a Class C and you sit higher therefore you can see better when driving a Class A. More room for bottom storage in a Class A.

RE: Fuel Cost in Arizona?

The 'use fuel tax' doesn't apply to private MHs If you fuel up at a pump that is set for the higher fuel use tax......go inside and get your refund of $.08/gallon. All you have to do is ask cashier, fill out info on THEIR 'refund tax form' (provided by AZ Fuel Tax Division) and sign for refund. X-2, I've never had a problem at fuel pumps in Arizona! I've been going to AZ. for many years and I stay there for 6 months at a time.

RE: Vinegar or Baking soda

Has anyone ever used white vinegar or baking soda to clean out the grey and/or black tanks? Nope, mainly because vinegar, baking soda, or hydrogen peroxide won't sanitize, but bleach will. Read this. At room temperature only bleach will sanitize. Plus, you only need a 50ppm bleach solution (1/4 cup per 15 gal of holding tank capacity). To sanitize like bleach but using vinegar or hydrogen peroxide, you'd have to heat the liquid to 130 degrees F and use full-strength solutions -- that's 15 gal vinegar or H2O2 per 15 gal holding tank capacity. $$$ Use bleach. I would never use bleach in a black tank! JMHO

RE: Sudden drop on MPG causes?

This is a good example for checking fuel mileage. I have done it at every tank on our coach (even though it's diesel). If a person didn't check their mileage do you think this would have been caught? MM. X-2, I check my mileage like Mark at a minimum of at least once a year! Very good practice!
