RE: Advice removing water stains on front curtains

Jack at Colorado River Blinds told me to use is Club Soda he called it a trade secret! My wife and I have used Club Soda on many things since with great success! Remove the curtains pour on the Club Soda, then scrub gently with a soft bristle brush, let the curtains dry out in the sun and they will look near new. Our curtains were as you described when Jack seen them he told us about the trade secret that they use! You won't be sorry! Good Luck

RE: Driving 93 south from Lake Meade

93 south from Hoover Dam to kingman is a 2 lane hwy with speed limit of 65, boring drive but easy for your rig. we travel it pulling our tt with no problems whatsoever. The washouts you have read about are the roads off 93 to Dolan Springs and Meadview but it is old news, I believe it was 2 or 3 weeks ago when the washouts occurred. X-2, I have a good friend that lives in Meadview!

RE: Our interstate highways!

Here is the solution from Washington. Prepare to start paying for using the Interstate highways. Interstate toll booths Do you mean Washington D.C. or Washington State the real Washington.

RE: Best gas engine, is V10 good

You didn't state if you wanted to buy a new coach or a used coach? If your buying a new RV then Ford Triton V-10 is your only option and this is for any RV from 2010 to present (there maybe a Big Block Chevy out there in a 2010 RV model that was a late seller?). If your buying a older RV from 2001 to 2009 (Big Block Chevy's were last produced in December 2009) with a Workhorse Chassis then Chevy can be a option for you to buy. I've owned in the past a 99 Fleetwood with a Ford Triton V-10 and I currently own a 04 Winnebago With the Chevy 8.1 Vortec. Both are great engines! I prefer Chevy over Ford and that is my personal choice.

RE: What is the best Tow Bar

I still use a 18 year old Raodmaster tow hitch that fits on the back of my motorhome. Now they have a model with easy to release locking pins, and it is much easier to unhitch. I also have a "Tow Shield" to protect the front of the car. I bought the hitch for both my cars at Camping World. 1999 Honda CRV and 2007 Ford Edge. I installed both, I install HVAC for a living. Fred. X-2, My Roadmaster Tow Bar is in it's 15th year of use! My tow vehicle is a 2014 Honda CRV.

RE: Help!! Dry Rot On Tire Sidewalls

Michelins Tire Website has information on there website that can help you! First of all you need to buy tire covers to keep the sun and UV rays off your tires when the coach is not being driven. You can purchase them at Camping World and they are the best tire protector from the sun. Michelins Website on tire care says to use only warm soapy water to clean your tires. Most tire UV protectants use a petroleum base in there products and anything with petroleum base should not be used on rubber surfaces so check the labels on these products to see if there petroleum based. Michelins Tire Care Website says you can drive a tire with UV cracks on the sidewall but, I can't remember the diameter that is allowable your going to have to find that information out yourself on Michelins Tire Website.

RE: Newell is a good ride right?

You asked if Newell was a good ride? IMHO, yes very nice quality built coaches. How those coaches were treated by previous owners is another story! This is when you need the coaches history!

RE: Bridgestone/Firestone Tires

Les Schwab in Washington State put a new set of Bridgestone 19.5 tires on our motor home. I decided upon the Bridgestone tires because the date code was only 3 months old. With my new Bridgestone tires my motor home became very squirrely to drive. First trip on our new tires was to the coast. Because we were taking our grandchildren my wife drove some of the kids in our Dodge Durango and I drove the rest in the motor home. On the way to the coast, not towing, our motor home would dodge and swerve as we drove down the road. The first time my wife road in our motor home after installing the new Bridgestone tires she was scared to death. I weighed my coach and adjusted air pressure to meet Bridgestone tire pressurization charts. Les Schwab had inflated the tires to the max pressure. Adjusting pressure did not help. I had a steering stabilizer and rear trac bar added. My coach came with a front trac bar installed. The suspension mods made our coach drive a little better but it was still squirrely and would dodge either left or right whenever it decided too. After a few local trips we headed south for the winter. As we headed south our coach started behaving better. We took I-5 south through Oregon and California. After spending some time near LA and San Diego we moved on to Tucson, AZ. The last time our coach lurched was as we were driving into Tucson. Returning home from Tucson our coach drove great and it is still driving just fine. I sent an e-mail to Bridgestone but they never answered. I asked Les Schwab and they could not give an answer. I have posted on forums and asked RV industry experts but no one can give me an answer. My guess is that either the tires needed time to allow the rubber to age as they were only 3 months old when they were installed or the tires needed to be driven to break them in. I have never heard of either of my explanations. Safe travels. JD That's bad customer service from Bridgestone Tire JD, when they don't have the courtesy to respond, especially if they don't know the answer.

RE: Steering Wheel

Isn't that kinda like having a low tire on the left so you let out some air on the right to 'balance' them out...:h. Seems like you need to have the alignment checked FIRST. Then have the front end checked. Adjusting the steering wheel only masks the actual problem..it doesn't FIX it.....JMHO....Dennis I have to agree with you Dennis! He's treating the symptom of the problem and not the cause!

RE: winter travel in the northwest

As mentioned weather is unpredictable. Keep informed as to what to expect each day on the road. Get yourself a set of chains for the rears and have them available, even if you do not need to install them. Some places require that you have them with your rig and the fine is more than the cost of the chains. There used to be places that rented chains but I have since bought mine. When driving in Winter temps, drive slow and do not make any quick adjustments. Do not change lanes or steer when you are going over an overpass as the road could be covered in ice. From experience, driving in a blizzard can make it difficult for your defroster to melt the snow on a 4 foot tall windshield. Other than that, just enjoy the trip. X-2, on Ronnie's post! I can't remember about Idaho or Montana, but in Washington State you must carry tire chains in your vehicle during the winter months and when going over the Mountain Passes even when the sign says no chains required. The Washington State Patrol sits on top of these passes and when they see a vehicle with no chains on (when the chains required sign is on) you will get pulled over a ticketed. The best route IMHO is I-90. Good Luck

RE: Bridgestone/Firestone Tires

No, I don't! But, I would like to comment that Les Schwab does not participate in the FMCA Michelin Fleet Tire program! The Manager at Les Schwab in Port Orchard, WA. told me that and Michelin Tire Company HQ told me that when I was talking to them on the phone. Les Schwab in Port Orchard,WA. quoted me $503.00 per Michelin XRV Tire, plus I had to pay the freight charges! Les Schwab is the closest tire store to my home. Michelin Tire Company HQ in NYC via phone sent me to a tire dealer in Tacoma, WA. (25 miles from my home) where I was charged $378.00 per Michelin XRV Tire! Thought you would like to know that! Good Luck with your Bridgestones/ Firestones!

RE: ACC Warranty

I've never had a warranty contract on any of my RV's and I've been RVing since 1976. I'm not saying they are bad, I just don't know about them. I've bought all my RV's new and trusted the brands!

RE: Insurance

I went with Geico, but I had to do a lot of research on the web and phone calling for rates.
