RE: Going from Gas To Diesel(?)

Ignoring the question of adequate power, here are some of the differences I've noted when I switched from Gas to Diesel. ............................... I didn't copy everything but... What an excellent post!

RE: need general advice

I am a newbie to dinghy towing. So much that i am waiting for my kit to arrive. However, I have done a lot of reading on this subject and our 2014 JKU. The 2011 (?) and newer Wranglers do not require the key in ignition. So just place the keys in your console. I decided on the Readybrute and Currie baseplate. I like the looks of the Currie as it looks like a skid plate and is reasonably priced. I also like the Readybrute because everything is all-in-one and I don't have air brakes so the AF1 was not even a thought. I was opting for the MOPAR wiring kit because I like simple plug and be done set ups. I wasn't into wiring diodes or light bars on our JEEP. I happened to find a great price on a used set up in another forum and it just happens to come with the Cooltech wiring harness, so that will work. I am planning to install the kit myself as it appears to be pretty easy to do so with this set up. I read of people paying around $1000 to have their kits installed which is mind-blowing to me. I am a bit nervous about the first outing with the JKU attached but am excited to finally be able to go out and explore areas off the campsite.

RE: Opinion Requested

The Rexhall looks a lot more dated for only being a year older. IMO

RE: Y R exhausts/hookups on awning side

This was actually a feature I was pleased with when buying our ACE. When we tailgate during the winter months we have tables with food/drinks set up curbside in which with our old MH, the heater would blow exhaust on our table the entire time. The way the curbside was set up and the coverage of our awning dictated this. We would run the heater so the wives could go inside to warm up occasionally.

RE: Thinking of getting an RV - lots of questions

Didn't read the long post but suggest renting a few times to be sure it's the lifestyle you like. Go around the campground and ask any and all owners what they like/don't like about their rig. People love to talk about their toys. Why even respond then? He is asking for opinions in here so he doesn't need to walk around the campground. smh

RE: RV wave

My wife drives a Wrangler and actually gets excited when she gets to wave to another. She alerts me as soon as she see's another motorhome. Although, I admit I don't wave to tt or 5th wheels. Does that make me a motorhome snob????

RE: You might be an RVer if.

You might be an RV'er if memories and a certain feeling of attachment rush through your mind every time you step into and take a deep breath in your motorhome.

RE: Will that ladder and roof hold a 300-pounder?

I agree they are all different. My McKenzie Rogue felt as If I could carry my son on my back up the ladder to walk around for better views of the surroundings. The ACE makes me nervous. I almost feel as if the roof is flexing as i walk around on it.

RE: $500,000 Motorhome. Class A? or would it be a C.

I saw a special on how they build these. they are quite impressive. They may not have amenities that we are have grown accustomed to. But, that clientele is not looking for what we find essential. A Unimog will take someone to places most of us will never see except for on tv. A 60" flat screen tv that we are watching in our Prevost while plugged in at an RV resort. :D

RE: Class A - Why so limited windows?

Generally, I want privacy when we are inside, the patio is for visiting and being in the open. MM. I must be more private, because I agree with this. When camping if we wish for a bit of privacy, we like to know we can simply move inside the motorhome. Our class c had a huge window by the booth which I liked while inside, but did not care for the 'view' from the outside. Often times we would find ourselves lowering the blind because if not it would place us on display to the campers nearby. However, tinting the windows would have certainly helped.

RE: What is Unique To Your Coach?

Another minor convenience of the Thor that I like compared to other A's I have looked at is the front grill opening. I love how the entire front opens up for a class a gasser. I know Forest River's likewise have a similar opening. But I have seen other A's that have a small hood opening similar to those on class c's.

RE: What is Unique To Your Coach?

Well, getting back to the original thread context...I like the small 'mud room' inside the door. We always end up having loads of sneakers, flip flops, boat shoes, etc to store in our motorhome when the kids are along. I love just throwing them all into the mudroom. I like how it has an inside light and a removable plug for washing it out. We for obvious reasons hang an air deodorizer in there too.

RE: Thor ACE ahead of the competition

Effy, it's pointless. Some people just don't get the whole WANT TO BUY NEW point of this thread. Here goes- Name another, better NEW class a for under $100K that is head and shoulders above the ACE in quality...

RE: Best Satellite for class "A"

Yes. I was talked out of the 'dome' satellite for the Dish Traveler linked above. It doesn't work in motion. But I was told the domes are glitchy while in motion and the signal quality is not as good.

RE: What are the advantages of frameless windows?

We've had our Fuzion since March, and we've already lost 2 of those beautiful frameless windows just driving down the interstate. We've owned 3 campers, and have never had this problem. Needless to say, I'm not a fan. I was wondering if they can be kept open while moving.

RE: Thor ACE ahead of the competition

People will always defend their poor choices! As an Owner of an ACE I did a lot of research before buying. I feel good about my purchase. All I can tell you is that in my real world experience of owning 2, I have had no major issues and happy with Thor as a Company. I love our 29.2. Is the build quality comparable to a high end rig, of course not. But is it on par with the rest in the same genre, yes. Would I buy a Palazzo, no. Would I buy a Thor again, yes if it was the right model. I really scrutinized every unit in the same price point. FR3, Vista, Pursuit, bay star, terra, etc. And I will say this, the innovation of Thor is spot on. Is there an element of ready, shoot, aim? Yes. So in that sense I would agree that buyers need to look past the shiny bits. But frankly all of them in the same range are built with the same quality. All of them, and I think anyone who thinks otherwise in this price range is kidding themselves. Based on a level playing field for build quality, often you are left with a better d├ęcor, or more innovative options, like electric bunks and laptop work stations, mud room, and massive storage and the ACE hit the mark on every one. So in that sense and my painless ownership thus far, I would say I made a good decision. Great post Effy. Find me a better new coach for under $100K. That is the catch. I was joking yesterday tailgating in the RV lot with guys about our new ACE. I mentioned that it may not be the biggest, fanciest, best built class a out there. But for under $90K, it was I felt the best new unit available. And yes, I love all the 'little features'. Heck the guy in the Newmar DP next to me watched me run the electric canopy in and out. He was jealous! (I found that laughable actually) But there will always be the argument that for $125K one can buy this. Well, then again a DP is necessary if you are going to tow. And don't forget you also need this...that...throw this in too...oh yeah, this is also a necessity. :D First thing is to determine how much you wish to spend and then find the best unit in that price range. ;) And FWIW DSDP, I find spending $400K on a motorhome to be just as ridiculous. I'd rather invest that money into a nice property (4000 ft2 vs 400ft2) that will not drop in value like a motorhome.

How about 26' 26 foot Winnebago I love this motorhome! It is not quite big enough for our needs. But I wish it was. So retro= cool!

RE: I love my Power Awning

My wife could never operate a manual awning if a storm came up and I were off somewhere. The awning would be toast. She can push a button though. This is a true fact. I also like the convenience of being able to close it early in the morning if the wind suddenly picks up. Having to go outside at 3A to close the manual awning in high winds while people are sleeping...well, you get it.
