RE: Detrioit to Niagra Falls in Spring 2015????

Traveling from Niagara to Detroit is a much more pleasant drive on the Canadian side IMHO.

RE: Considering this used Class A.......

Before or as a condition of purchase, I would have a Cummins facility check out the engine and drive train. Try to find one that has the equipment to load test the engine. A major problem with a diesel can cost near the purchase price of the unit in question. Even if it costs you several hundred, it is better to be safe than sorry.

RE: Portable BBQ grills

I use a Weber Go Anywhere grill. First one lasted 19 years. Needed a new flame bar and flavorizer so I bought a new one for a few dollars more than replacing worn out parts. I think it would be a lightweight quality replacement you are looking for.

RE: Cold snap, not winterized yet, issues?

You should be OK. In the future, I suggest you blow out the lines after every use in the fall and early spring. It only takes about 10 minutes and will be one less thing to worry about.

RE: Action Credit Services LLC

No one wants to jump in the hole you dug for yourself except a person with bad credit who wants an RV now and is really using your credit worthiness. This scenario usually doesn't end up well for the seller (you) because you are still obligated to pay the debt when it goes into default unless fully released from liability from the loan company. Personally, I think you are better off to sell it for what you can and pay any shortfall to the bank and be done with it. Consignment companies like PPL Motorhomes might be another option to maximize sales price and get rid of it quickly.

RE: RV propane water heater

We only run it for showers and use a kettle to boil water for dishes, coffee etc. We do the same except microwave water to clean dishes. Need to run generator to charge batteries when off grid or use electricity in a campground so there is not extra cost to heat cleaning water.

RE: Generator noise under bed

If I need 120V electric at night, I will find a campground. I do not feel comfortable running a gas generator while I sleep due to carbon monoxide poisoning.

RE: Complaint about a dealer

I would take the motorhome to the selling dealer and have them fix the auto brake issue under their self administered warranty plan. Remember, the dealer's out of pocket expense is much less if they do the work themselves. I know it is frustrating, but from an outsiders view it looks as if the dealer is trying to work with you.

RE: The Workhorse Isn't

If the engine overheats in a little over a mile, that indicates that you are NOT getting water circulation. This eliminates the fan clutch, transmission, dragging brakes, etc. I would look at things that will stop the water from circulating like a bad thermostat or an air pocket in the cooling system that will cause the water pump to stop pumping. Check the thermostat with a pan of hot water to make sure that it opens completely and that it is installed correctly, and not backwards. Fill the system with water and properly bleed it to make sure that all air is removed. Good suggestions. The bottom radiator hose could be collapsing or plugged. Make sure that there are new hoses in that $5000 worth of parts. Check the hoses- If a hose has a tight bend it could cause collapsing. I have one vehicle where a spring the diameter of hose ID is inserted to prevent collapsing.

RE: Got some road hazard damage today. Pics

Sorry to hear of your troubles. You guys have had a tough week!

RE: Paper journal recommendations

We use the Camper's Daily Log available through Camping World. We have used it since 1991 and it has proved to be invaluable in many instances to find a good campground quickly or just to reminiscence. I've had laptops since 1991 but would have lost stored data several times. Plus you can reference or input to a hard copy at anytime without the need for a boot up or power requirement.

RE: Traded in the Class A DP for a class c!

I feel for the next poor soul who buys that coach!

RE: St Joseph Peninsula SP in Florida

I love St. Joe but I don't think kids will be happy for more than a day. You might want to replace it with a stay at St. Andrews in Panama City. Lots to do for the young.

RE: Campgound name changes in a.State Park

I was up there one year for the colors and thought I was in a cartoon. It was that colorful and beautiful.

RE: Battery charging service?

There are portable solar charging kits that hook up to your battery or plug in cigarette lighter. I don't know if they have the capacity you are looking for but check them out on EBAY.

RE: Discontinued Part Search help needed

Verify what manufacturers used the control. Then google that car companies name and NOS (new old stock) and start calling companies specializing in that brands obsolete parts. If they don't have the part, ask if they know who might. Some companies are very helpful and have a database indicating where the part is available.

RE: What Constitutes Vintage Class A

There is vintage and then there is reliable. I would opt for a coach from 1991 forward that has fuel injection and over drive transmission. The GMCs are neat and a classic however they lack the above two features as well as storage.

RE: What diesel conditioner to use for storage??

I have always added biocide for winter storage. Diesel does expand when it warms up so fill to 7/8 to leave room for expansion.

RE: Gas leak on Generator

Cross reference to a NAPA filter. I believe it is a filter used on older model Fords.

RE: Clearance lights continue to flash

My system will do that if a lock is out of sequence. In other words, all locks must lock at the same time. If one lock was manually locked before using the remote, my clearance lights will flash. They will also flash to indicate low chassis battery charge. This is on a 1991 but it might give ideas on items to check.
