RE: Recommended class A gasser

My priority for a gas coach would be one that is of a high quality build with a comfortable, livable floor plan that would best suit my needs. I would seriously consider a Newmar or Tiffin coach.

RE: Firestone VS Bridgestone Class A Tire

Over the years, Bridgestone tires have worked great on our gas coach, with zero problems... Good luck with your choice of brand & Safe travels...:)

RE: Benefits of 22" inch wheels on a gasser?

Our 2000 coach came with 19.5 tires that work just fine.

RE: House batteries

I would say yes so that you won't place a straight current load on your converter. Your 12v current load should come from your house batteries with converter keeping batteries charged.

RE: Gas vs diesels

You will no doubt receive many and varied opinions on your post. If your RV lifestyle will involve logging high mileage on a coach, perhaps a diesel powered unit would be the best choice. In our case we opted for a gas powered coach as we wouldn't be logging high mileage. Our travels average 5-6k miles annually spending 3+ months at any one location. Insofar as we would be living in the coach more than traveling in it, we gave priority to a coach with a comfortable, livable floor plan that would best suit our needs. Fortunately we found one in our 2000 gas powered coach we currently own which is now almost 17 years old with 91k miles and still in great shape. Wishing you the best on your choice of a coach, and may you enjoy many fun, safe and trouble free journeys.

RE: Motorhome Insurance Renewal

For whatever it's worth, we've had our first and current coach insured by Foremost Insurance Co. Over the years we've filed several claims which were handled expeditiously and without any hassle. Based on our experience with Foremost, I highly recommend them. Good Luck & Safe Travels.....:)

RE: 16 year old Bridgestone faired better than 17yo Michelin's

The main reason for this post was me thinking out loud how the 16yo Bridgestones held up a lot better than the 17yo Michelins, when in my mind, Michelins are the best tire money can buy. Guess I'll chime in and say AMEN to "the best tire money can buy" Been RV'ing now for 21 years and the only brand tire I'll use on our coach are Bridgestones. Never had one fail yet. Best of luck & safe travels.......:)

RE: Gulfstream Sun Voyager

We have a different brand coach than yours that also has the 120vac wall type switch under the sink and it's for the 120vac heating element in our 10 gal water heater. Good luck & Safe Travels......

RE: Metal to fiberglass bonding

Might want to consider trying JB Weld

RE: Your F53 tire pressures

The the load inflation chart for our R250 series Bridgestone 245/70x19.5 Load range "G" tires reflects a minimum of 80psi so that's what we comply with.

RE: Ford V10 Power, effectivity

We're satisfied with the performance of our 2000 38' v10 powered coach. Loaded for travel with 2 bodies & full tanks it weighs in at 21,230 lbs with our toad weighing 3,400 lbs. Our engine develops 425 lb ft of torque at 3,250 rpm & 310 hp at 4,250 rpm. Over the years we did add the full banks system along with the 5 Star tune. Average fuel mileage 7 mpg.

RE: Clicking noise?

Might be the Isolator solenoid cycling on and off...

RE: Ford Gas Chassis for 38 footers ?

Our 2000 38' coach powered by the ford v10 has served us well over the past 16 years. No major problem fueling, as whenever possible we use Pilot/Flying J stations with the RV islands. Nice livable floor plan that well suits our needs. Insofar as we travel to destinations where we spend 3 months or so living in it more than driving it, didn't see need for a more expensive DP. Good luck with your choice & safe travels...

RE: Mobile internet

On our Sprint cell phone we have a personal "Hot Spot" we can activate when we want to connect to the internet. Our service for 2 cell phones is $130 per month.

RE: 2000 harney coach ...trick to start?

If the start button in the rear works to start engine, you may have an open circuit in the 12v feed from ignition switch to the starter solenoid, just a thought. Best of luck & let us know when you find the fix..

RE: How to clean Toilet bowl seal?

On our Thetford Sealand unit I've found by dumping all the water then spraying 303 Aerospace Protectant on the ball seal and letting it soak for a a day or so works for us.

RE: Best "A". For under $350,000

I would opt for an older model Newell coach over any others.

RE: Tag Axle problems on 2000 Pinnacle 3790

You most likely have the "Henchen Tag Axle System" that we have on our 2000 Residency 3790. You may be able to get some assistance from this site of Airstream as they use the same type of axles.: http://www.inlandrv.com/axles/ Here's another site with information on the Henchen axles: http://www.inlandrv.com/tours/axle-plant/axles-briefing.htm As far as the wall separation from the floor, you'll need to remove the long molding strip on the outside under which you'll find screws that attach the sidewall to the floor. The screws may be broken, if so, you'll need to remove a screw that isn't broken and try to find the same type of screw at a hardware store, perhaps Lowes or Home depot. After finding matching screws you need to drill a hole in the sidewall in line and next to where all the broken screws are located then reattach the sidewall to the floor with the new screws. If you're lucky and the screws aren't broken off, than all that's necessary will be to tighten the screws to bring the sidewall back tight against the floor. That's how I fixed the same problem I had with my coach where the gap between sidewall and floor occurred on the driver's side just forward of the Living room slide out opening. Good luck and let us know if the fix works. Feel free to e-mail me at duvay35@yahoo.com. Best of luck and safe travels...

RE: Suggestions for making my F53 a little easier to drive

I have a 2001 Itasca Suncruiser built on a 2000 Ford F53. Just got back from a long trip. Overall it did fine, but am looking for suggestions on what to make it a little easier to drive. I have Koni FSD shocks, and I am overall ok with the ride. The problem the driving. I get blown all over the road when a truck passes by. If I encounter an uneven piece of pavement, the coach swings from side to side very easily. I'm not sure if anything can be done to help, but I'd appreciate any suggestions or success stories. We had that problem, and my solution was to install the Davis Tru-Trac stabilizing bar to our front suspension. It reduced the harsh sideways shove by overtaking 18 wheeler's to now just a gentle nudge. Here's a link to a website with more information if interested: http://www.supersteerparts.com/products/davis-trutrac-front-trac-bar-ford-f53-v10-1999-to-2006.html Best of luck & safe travels:)

RE: 2000 Residency 3790

I'm looking for any information that I can get on the 2000 Mountain High Residency. I have a friend that is selling one and I'd like to know what I'd be getting into. I've searched the forums and found very little information on these RVs except that the motor mounts have been known to wear causing issues with the back slide, the transmission cooling can cause the transmission to fail, and the stock fuel pumps can cause stalling issues. Any information on where to get replacement parts, maintenance manuals, or service would be helpful. Thank you, Ray Hi Ray, sent you a PM Jim
