RE: CA to MO, best route?

You might want to bring up google maps on your computer and get directions by typing in your starting point then your destination. It usually gives a couple of alternate routes. Just a suggestion. Best of luck and have a safe Journey....:)

RE: Fuel Pump Replacement 2004 Fleetwood Terra V-10

You might want to have the fuel pump relay checked. Have you had a diagnostic check done for any trouble codes? Haven't read or heard of any fuel pump problems on that late model of a coach. Best of luck and let us know the fix....

RE: 2006 Monaco LaPalma gas

Hi all, Looking at a 2006 Monaco LaPalma with 30k miles on a Ford chassis. I have had 5th wheels for many years but have decided to go to a class A so this is my first one. Looking for opinions good and bad from those of you who know something about this coach and/or chassis.Cosmetically it is very nice inside and out. This particular coach floor plan suits us and the price is budget friendly. Thanks. Just curious, why do you have a duplicate post on the same coach:@

RE: Workhorse vs. Triton Engines

Overall, the v10 is a more advanced technology engine utilizing overhead camshaft along with coil-over-plugs. However IMO the Allison transmission on the GM v8 is superior to the Ford 4R100 transmission. It would appear the newer Ford 5 & 6 speed transmissions are perhaps comparable to the Allison units. Good luck with your choice & safe travels...:)

RE: Moving to Gasser

Well, for whatever it's worth, our 15 year old 2000 Residency gas coach has served us well over the years virtually trouble free. Good luck with your next coach whatever it may be.....:)

RE: Build quality gas vs DP

I seriously question whether there's any gas powered coach, old or new that can match the build quality of a Foretravel. Just my humble opinion for whatever it isn't worth....:B

RE: Triton V-10

We have a v10 powered coach bought new in Jan 2000. It's 37'8" long with tag axle and fully loaded with 2 persons weighs in at 21,230lbs. Now with 91k miles it's been virtually trouble free. I did have the Banks system installed along with the 5 Star Tune. To improve ride comfort installed Koni FSD shocks on the front suspension along with Firestone Ride-Rite air bags on all 4 corners. Over the years, fuel mileage has averaged 7 mpg. Based on the experience with our's I can highly recommend a Ford v10 powered coach. Good luck with your choice & travel safe.......

RE: Motorhome insurance

We've had our coach insured with Foremost Ins. Co. now for 20 years and during that time have filed several claims which have been handled expeditiously with no hassle. Current annual premium for full coverage & $250 deductible is $922. Based on my experience with Foremost I highly recommend them. Good luck with your choice & Safe Travels....

RE: Houston to Palm Springs & I 10 road grades?

If your coach is powered by the Ford V10 you will find it will go into a "limp" mode (firing on alternate cylinders) should an overheating condition occur and eventually will shut down to prevent engine damage. Personally I wouldn't embark on any trip knowing of a possible fan clutch malfunction. However it's your call. Best of luck and safe travels....

RE: Best Tow dinghy

We're still satisfied with our 03 Suzuki XL-7. No fuse to disconnect, just put transfer case in neutral, trans selector in Park, turn key to accessory position unlocking steering and go. It's been a great vehicle to tow, and while being towed, mileage isn't recorded on the odometer. Good luck with your choice of a tow vehicle & safe travels.....

RE: exhaust system

Doug Thorley or Gibson headers, Flowmaster, Magnaflow or Dynomax muffler and use a 3.5" exhaust and tail pipe. Good luck

RE: Filling Batteries

We've used the Pro-Fill system now for years and it works great and is easy to use, highly recommend it.

RE: 2007 National Dolphin

Though no longer in business, National RV built a quality coach, I wouldn't hesitate to buy one. Back in 2000 we almost bought a Tropi'cal but DW liked the interior & floor plan of the coach we finally bought. Good luck & hope it works out for you..:)

RE: Allison 3000MH service cost

For whatever it's worth, in 2004 while at an FMCA rally in Albuquerque I attended a seminar hosted by the Allison Transmission Co. The Allison Rep. stated that if the transmission came with Transynd fluid, the main filter must be changed at 5,000 miles then the next service would be at 150,000 miles, unless it had a Retarder, then it must be serviced at 75,000 miles. Not sure whether those service requirements have changed over the years.

RE: Tow Bar Age, how old is too old ?

We're still using the Duncan Tow-Master we bought back in 1995, still works great and simple to connect to towed vehicle.
