RE: 275/80r 22.5 tires

First of all if you want to run those slightly used 7 year old tires I would take them to a tire shop and have them broke down (off the rim) and inspected inside and out that way you know what you have. I'm on my second set of XRV's having run my first set for 10 years. In the 10th year of the mentioned set I got minor UV cracks on the sidewall. This was my fault due to I didn't cover my tires from the Arizona sun. You can go to Michelins Quality Care Website and no where on that website does it say you can run on cracked tires. But, it does say the cracks can be run on, if there within a certain depth and they are Inspected by a tire expert (Not a RV.Net tire expert). I have never had a Michelin Tire blow out on me in my RV or my Semi truck in over 44 years! Is that coincidence I don't think so! My life depended on a lot of different Michelin front end steer tires in the millions of miles that I drove OTR (Over the Road). The Michelin XRV is a true soft rubber RV tire designed for RV applications only (RV's sit a lot without moving this is just one of the many applications) XRV are not hard rubber truck tires that the Michelin bashers always fail to mention! I like Pastor Charlie, purchased my tires from the FMCA/Michelin Fleet Tire Program at a discount for $378.00 per tire my local Michelin Dealer wanted $505.00 per tire plus freight! Do your homework when buying tires! Good Luck

RE: Do you flash people?

A question. A truck driver with experience...doesn't he KNOW by looking at the mirrors when to go back over? :h It can get difficult to judge distance when your pulling doubles or triples especially in the Pacific Northwest in the gloomy weather rain, fog and darkness.

RE: Leaving seat while driving

The gets up to make a snack or get me a drink, use the restroom, or attend to the dogs! When not doing that were buckled up. A coach that has a engine up front (diesel or gas) would have more protection in a accident IMHO. When I bought my coach new the shop foreman at the dealership that I was at told me not to buy a Alfa See Ya (I was looking at one) and he showed me why. Not structural sound up front.

RE: Do you flash people?

Yes, I do it as a courtesy to Truckers and Leo's! I'm a retired OTR Truckdriver! A long time ago when I took a CDL test at the DOL that light flashing was a question on the test that I took. I was amazed to find out it is against the law. How do I know this? I answered the question incorrectly and said it was O.K. to flash headlights. The DOL Officer told me if you flash a truck to pull in front of you and a accident occurs from that result, you are responsible for that accident by signaling to the truck that it is O.K. to pull in. I have never in my 44-1/4 years driving OTR heard of anyone being cited for flashing there head lights. Good Question

RE: States with no tax on private party purchase?

Washington State, but the tax the heck out of you at registration time (tabs)! We have to chip in and help pay for light rail and possibly coming next is State Parks? Em, no You a "use tax" that is the local commercial sales tax at the time you register the vehicle Plus the other taxes, like light rail, which you wouldn't pay Kitsap is not included in the regional light rail tax I can show you the receipt from my registration and yes I'm aware that Kitsap County does not pay for the light regional rail tax system! This has nothing to do with the regional Light Rail! This was another back room deal separate from regional rail. It's called a TPA look it up! I had to pay $75.00 extra on my tabs and I believe it runs for 5 years . The TPA's in Washington State do not require a majority vote from the legislature, it's a yea or nay from the transportation committee! I'm surprised your not paying it or aware of it! I looked it up to help you review it : www.wsdot.gov/Projects/Funding/2005 TPA stands for Transportation Partnership Program Annual Fee. It started in 2005 and runs until 2021. Fee of $75.00 per Motorhome to bring in 130 million. It's so nice being a unwilling partner!

RE: Best ways to keep RV cool inside in desert climate

Reflective material in windows (inside coach) when sitting (camping), a windshield shade cover (outside) to protect your windshield seals and windshield wipers. Awnings out and air conditioning on by 8 AM. All my tires covered to prevent UV damage. Fantastic fan on to get warm air out before you turn on your air. When walking my dogs outside you can't walk them on pavement during high heat times. And I keep a coyote shaker on my person when walking my pets in the desert.

RE: Purchasing an RV in Coos Bay, OR - Need an inspection

Jordan, just wanted you to know that your buying a Super fine coach! There billed as the finest steering coaches in the World. I've been to the factory in Yakima, Washington State where Western RV was manufacturing them. And I've also been to a few Western RV Rallies. There very nice luxury coaches. Good Luck with your new ride!

RE: Coach water system schematic

I have a WorkHorse chassis manual, I have the Coachman's Owner's manual, and I have the brochure on the coach a 2007 Coachman Epic, but for the life of me I cannot find a schematic of the water (or for that matter any system) installed by the manufacturer after receiving the chassis? Coachman was absorbed by Forest River a few years ago but when my Coachman was assembled it was the Coachman plant. Anyone know of a source for the what's hidden inside the walls/floors of your coach? I would hope that the nearest dealer's shop would have a schematic! I looked at the new Coachman in 2004 when I was in the market to buy a new coach and Coachman had one of the best water systems on the market IMHO.

RE: Would you buy a 200k miles Pusher?

Yes, if the engine was properly maintained! The worst milage that I've gotten on a diesel engine was 750,000 miles the best 1,200,000 miles before a rebuild. Are truck shop ran synthetic oil and changed the oil filter every 10,000 miles and the engine oil every 20,000 miles. These engines were run 5 times a week under heavy usage.

RE: Sweet Spot for DP Odometer Mileage

100,000 miles on a diesel engine is near new to anyone who has experience with them. I've drove them most of my adult life everyday!

RE: Interiors

Tom / Barb, we have light colors in our coach! And in our stick built we went with maple hardwood floors one strip of wood light the next strip dark throughout the house and it turned out very nice.

RE: under sink filtration water discolored

Time to change your filter when it's discolored.

RE: 2009 Winnebago Adventurer 38n

Good Luck with your new coach I have a 2004 Adventurer that I bought new and have had very little problems with it. There very solid coaches and I'm sure you will enjoy it.

RE: Are Our Tires REALLY that sensitive?

I've been RVing since 1976 and of yet I never had major tire problems. I'm not into all the technical gadgets etc. I air my tires at 100 psi before I head out on a trip and before I return from a trip and that is it. Same as when I was driving a Semi. Just as important is other tire care that no one else is talking about. Your rubber tires are very sensitive to road dirt and grime, heat, cold, moisture, going over curbs and holes in the road surface, overloading, dirt roadways, and I see this at every campground I go to RV's up on blocks and the block surface does not cover the complete tire surface which can result in inner side wall break down and damage which you can't see. Great Question

RE: stolen trotwood

Sorry to hear about your bad news! I would try to see if your local TV Station could do a little short story about it being restored and stolen! That would really have people looking out for it.
