RE: Diesel Prices

Diesel was 10 cents cheaper than unleaded for ONE WEEK now it's back at $3.99….I filled up 200 gallons in the bus when it dropped so I saved a cool 20 bucks….

RE: Servicing an Aqua-Hot System

I've owned 4 coaches with standard LP heater…..3 coaches with aqua hot…..I never, never, never will go back to LP. As far as maintenance, once a year done at the service about $275 and that's it…very easy to do yourself if you want to learn. Forever hot water, no filling LP tanks, no danger of explosion, warm floors, even heat……one of the best additions to any motorhome!

RE: Coach Prices and Long Term Quality

If your going to drop $500K or more at least look at these: Prevost, Foretravel, Newell, Wanderlodge…..by far these are the best built coaches and designed to run 20++ years. In the next group I would put american coach, monaco, country coach the new cornerstone, newmar…..after that comes Winnebago, Fleetwood ect….

RE: Coach Prices and Long Term Quality

I'm on coach #7……and I can tell you that my experience tells me that most "shells" will never last as long as the diesel engine, trans and chassis components. Build quality is the big question and american has a reputation for well built motorhomes…that's why you see a bunch of older eagles, heritage and traditions on the road. I made a huge leap from a fiberglass coach to a bus. We could have bought a new Cornerstone, Heritage, Tradition ect. BUT after looking at Prevost chassis's we opted to go with an older Prevost vs. a new fiberglass coach. Many people in our club are driving 20+ year old coaches and they look and run extremely well. The other thing is no matter who the converter is the chassis is still a Prevost and designed to travel dependably over a million miles with good maintenance. If you are looking for build quality and thinking of spending north of $500K I would strongly suggest you browse some older prevost coaches. In that price range you could easily find an '06 or '07 even an '08 depending on the converter.

RE: RV Park Tenants Rights in South Carolina

My only comment is why would anyone want to stay where they are not wanted or are being harassed? The wonderful thing about this lifestyle is you can pick up and leave on an hours notice and move on down the road to someone who will appreciate you staying and paying rent……If you've paid thru the end of the month or till a certain date then bite your lip and ride it out…..then LEAVE!

RE: Nashville,TN looking for suggestions

Just made reservations at Nashville KOA for June 2015, based on good recommendations on these forums. The KOA has been remodeled and is FANTASTIC. Big pull thru sites, newly paved roads, nice patio furniture….this is not your typical KOA. Also, if it rains, the other campgrounds get flooded very easily.

RE: DETROIT?

Thanks all….I've got a dual track going on….will check out the places above as well as looking into a hotel/motel Someone just PM'd me and said the westin downtown may be pet friendly…..so I may not have to navigate Detroit with the bus.

RE: Greatest campgrounds ever

Blue Water Key RV resort in Key West…….No place finer in the country! BTW…the price reflects this.

RE: DETROIT?

I don't know what your definition of close is, but perhaps you might want to think about overnighting the dog at a facility that can take care of its needs. Not an option…….no boarding facility will give him his food and insulin at 5 a.m. and 5 p.m. They also will not let me pick up the dog on a Sunday…..I guess it is a liability issue with a dog that has medical needs like diabetes. I'm going to check with the DAC first. I wouldn't need to spend the night anywhere in downtown I just need a "safe" place to park the coach from 5:00 p.m. to about 10 p.m. Once the reception is over I can easily drive the coach to a walmart in the suburbs or a campground. Don't really need to plug in anywhere the generator is fine for the time I am there. I wouldn't hesitate to go to a motel and simply drive the car but I'm having trouble finding a downtown motel that is pet friendly….especially with a big newfoundland.

DETROIT?

I have to go to a wedding on August 2nd in Detroit at t he Detroit Athletic Club. I will be traveling in the motorhome and the only place I've found that is somewhat close is Harbortown in Monroe. I'll have to travel back and forth to the coach because of our diabetic dog and was wondering if there is anything closer to Downtown…...

RE: Diamond Shield removal

Did mine while wintering in Florida…….used steam, heat gun and the stuff they sent me to remove it. 2 people working 6 hours each day and it took almost 4 days to get it all off. I will NEVER use this stuff again.

RE: RV Service near Oscoda MI

There is a cat dealer in Alpena and they work on cummins and detroit diesel also. There used to be a place in Harrisville called Harrisville Marine on US-23 (15 miles from you that did all kinds of RV repair. Bob (owner) passed away last winter so I don't know if his wife kept the mechanics but it is worth a call. Other than that it is camping world in Houghton or General RV in birch run…neither of those are close to you.

RE: PowerTech Generators?

Hmmmm…..gotta wonder why powertech is used in foretravel and prevost coaches……I don't think they would "skimp" when it comes to generators, a critical part of the coach, in units that are close to a million and way more than a million dollars. If you had a loud one, most likely it was because the coach builder either put it in a bad location AND did not insulate or soundproof the bay very well.

RE: PowerTech Generators?

I've got a powertech in my Prevost coach……I've had 5 Onan's in my previous fiberglass coaches……I run mine all the time and it is very, very quiet…I'm sure it may be the way Prevost insulate and soundproof the generator bay. Both the DW and I use it in rest areas and when we dry camp on the way to florida….doesn't bother either of us and we get a good night sleep.

RE: advice used dp HR Monaco or Country coach

5 extra feet, tag axle and quad slide is what I would go for. As far as the ROI….that is just not something I am used to hearing when it concerns a motorhome. My coach (2005) was well over a million dollars when new…….I bought it last year and paid a little over .40 cents on the dollar. The ROI is the happiness and memories you create which is priceless.

RE: Young Age/High Mileage or Old Age/Low Mileage MH???

The truth about diesels is they like to be ran….that being said, I would prefer to have a coach with some miles on it. Too many moving parts on a motorhome to sit idle. Most diesels, with good maintenance, will run over a million miles. The fact is the "house" part will most likely fall apart much sooner than the diesel will have problems. I have some friends in my prevost club who have well over 300K + miles and they run like they are new. A diesel motorhome is just broke in around 30K and you will begin getting your true mileage between 30-40K at the break in point.
