RE: Maximum Tire Pressure

You asked a good question about tire pressure! I own and drive on the same type tires as you, and have had extremely good luck running 100lbs. all around. I did a lot of experimenting to find what worked for me! Michelin & Winnebago recommended 90 lbs. front and 85 lbs. rear when my coach was new in 2004, that combo didn’t work for me due to tire squirm.

RE: Busting the Myth of 5 year tire life.

I currently have Michelin XRV’s on my coach! They were on my coach when I bought it new in 2004! These tires were replaced in 2014 with another set of XRV’s, which still look near new. Tire care play’s a very important role in a tires life. I do everything that is requested to do by Michelin Tire Care on there website. I don’t recommend to anyone to buy Michelin Tires, just because I run them! But great tire care is of utmost importance!

RE: What ladder do you keep in motorhome

I carry a 5’ ladder that fits in the storage compartments of my Winnebago! Don’t know the brand of the ladder it was given to me by my Grandson!

RE: Thor v Forest River

When it comes to RV’s and sturdiness, I look for the RV with the best or strongest seams!

RE: Motor home Lengths

RE: ground squirrel or mouse??

Steve, I don’t like using bait that attracts rodents to your coach! But, I understand you need to eradicate them from your coach! I had them get into my genset and chew and destroy my wiring harness! After you get them out of your coach use double 00 steel wool. I bought mine at Lowe’s and I put the steel wool in every cubby hole that I could find. I even removed every drawer in my RV and put steel wool everywhere inside the drawer! I’ve never had a rodent inside my coach since and it’s been over 10 years! I’ve also used steel wool around my genset and haven’t had any trouble with it either.

RE: Front diesel engine

Nate, first one I seen was a 1985 Air Stream Diesel Puller! Any type of noise not a problem to me I had my hearing blown out in Vietnam in 1969!

RE: Pulling from the front of a Class A

Not all motorhomes are pulled from the front! I own a 2004 Winnebago that has to be towed from the rear and the driveline has to be disconnected. I know this for a fact because my RV was towed into Lake Havasu many years ago when it was hit by a runaway truck! Why would you have to disconnect the drive line when towed from the rear? Isn't the drive line off the ground? It’s what the towing instructions said to do!

RE: Gifted Class A

Check in all the outside cubby holes for signs of rodents. Congrats on your new coach!

RE: Thinking out Loud

My best friend owns a diesel pick up and tows a 5er! This past summer his turbo went out on his pick up on one of the Montana Passes! He had to call 2 tow trucks one to haul his pick up to the shop and a second tow truck to haul his 5er to a RV Park. If he would have had a Class A motorhome breakdown call one tow truck and drive to a motel in your toad.

RE: Have you seen one like this before??

I was in Arizona last month and I was camped next to a 1985 Airstream Diesel Puller, that was prime condition!

RE: 2018 jeep compass

I just hope you are not thinking the Compass is a REAL Jeep. If you want a true Jeep to do real 4X4 off roading you will need the Jeep Rubicon with Lockers or the Grand Cherokee TRAIL Rated. The minimum for off roading would be the Wrangler Sport. Be advised that even the Sport does not have 'Lockers' so is not TRUE 4 wheel drive. If your salesman can't explain these differences in models, go elsewhere to buy. Here we go... where'd I put that popcorn? Come on Jerry, please pass the popcorn!

RE: Gas Chassis battery

Bob, this past Fall, l had to replace all 3 of my batteries! Les Schwab had to come out and make a service call to get me going to get to there shop! I had the chassis battery replaced and both of my coach batteries replaced. One of my coach batteries was actually boiling and very hot. I was sick for awhile and neglected my coach. All 3 batteries were Les Schwab that we’re replaced and all 3 were 8 years old. I’ve in the past I’ve used all the batteries you mentioned and have had good luck with all of them!

RE: Exercising tires on a coach that’s parked for a while

Great research Ron with all the tire experts. I try to move my coach once every 2 weeks just because I want too. Last year I was really sick and the coach sat 6-9 months and it didn’t get moved. Didn’t seem to effect it! Good question!!

RE: Progressive Insurance questions

Ron, I’ve never had Proggressive Insurance on a motorhome so I can’t comment on there rates! But, before I got married and had a RV, I had Proggressive insurance on my auto. My wife shopped around and found me insurance with Nation Wide for $900.00 less a year for the same coverage. That made me so angry I never went back to Proggressive, so far in the past 25 yrs. In reality it’s my fault for not shopping around, but that experience still bothered me.

RE: Just wondering...

The wife and I discussed this and research it and it didn’t work out for us do to our Parrot! We’ve owned a 31’ Class C we needed more room to accommodate a large bird cage for are Yellow Naped Amazon Parrot! So we bought a new 35’ Winnebago Class A in 2004. After looking at down sizing this past year we can’t fit the bird cage in a smaller Class C! I’m not about to get rid of the Parrot for my own convenience so I’m going to stand pat. We also have two dogs a Red Standard Poodle and a Westie! My Winnebago is almost paid for so I might move up in length. My wife likes the Tiffin Phaeton!

RE: HWH Leveling System

1. Easy answer--- absolute BS. 2. HOW would he even know if a jack had fully extended too many times??????? 3. The Solenoids can be energized up to 15 minutes with no harm. The AVERAGE time a Solenoid is activated is about 2 to 3 minutes. 4. What will cause an HWH solenoid to burn out from too long is if your jack down light came ON on retract and you drove off with that light on and in Store mode. The system will NOT time out if just one jack down light stays on. Thanks, for the info Doug. I never drive until jacks are fully up and storage mode says all jacks are up, then I always turn the Store Mode Off. I’ll have everything gone thru at a RV Shop when I get home!

RE: Where to store sewage hose on a class A

Your plan would work. Some folks attach the PVC under the RV with the opening right at the drain access. Some Class A's have room inside the drain bin. Some store in a plastic container along with all the connections you'll be accumulating. X-2 mines in a 6’ PVC pipe with both ends that have screw fittings and I store it in my storage compartment!
