RE: rv repair in Las Vegas

Over the years, I've been satisfied with services at Johnny Walkers RV on Boulder Highway.

RE: Electrical Help

I would highly recommend you follow barlow46's advice when using your generator. Although we have an ATS on our coach, when I exercise our genset I disconnect from shore power... Best of luck and safe travels....

RE: Batteries

That depends on many things; not much information given. Are these batteries in the same bank hooked to the same charger? Different brands, chemistries, ages, etc? Any load on them while being charged? I would check for a possible faulty solid state or solenoid type isolator that may not feeding the charge voltage from your converter to your engine battery. Just a thought. good luck fixing your problem..:)

RE: Eletric steps

I have a Georgetown Class A MH, my problem is when the door closes the step retracts, and then it sounds as if the motor is still running. Other times the steps will retract and then extend about 1/3 of the way. Both gears are good, all is tight. Any ideas? Just had the same problem with our KwiKee steps. I was able to obtain the step motor & gear/linkage assembly along with the step controller from our local RV dealer and installed it myself. Cost was around $300 Good luck & safe travels...:)

RE: new tires

I'm biased toward Bridgestone tires as have been using them for 14 years now with zero issues. Good luck with your choice & safe travels...
LVJ58 10/14/14 02:01pm Class A Motorhomes

Class A for me provides better wide view of highway & surrounding scenery while driving and the ease of access to other areas of coach for wife while traveling. Other than that can't think any other reasons I prefer the class "A". Best of luck with your choice and enjoy safe travels...

RE: Bridgestone/Firestone Tires

Les Schwab in Washington State put a new set of Bridgestone 19.5 tires on our motor home. I decided upon the Bridgestone tires because the date code was only 3 months old. With my new Bridgestone tires my motor home became very squirrely to drive. First trip on our new tires was to the coast. Because we were taking our grandchildren my wife drove some of the kids in our Dodge Durango and I drove the rest in the motor home. On the way to the coast, not towing, our motor home would dodge and swerve as we drove down the road. The first time my wife road in our motor home after installing the new Bridgestone tires she was scared to death. I weighed my coach and adjusted air pressure to meet Bridgestone tire pressurization charts. Les Schwab had inflated the tires to the max pressure. Adjusting pressure did not help. I had a steering stabilizer and rear trac bar added. My coach came with a front trac bar installed. The suspension mods made our coach drive a little better but it was still squirrely and would dodge either left or right whenever it decided too. After a few local trips we headed south for the winter. As we headed south our coach started behaving better. We took I-5 south through Oregon and California. After spending some time near LA and San Diego we moved on to Tucson, AZ. The last time our coach lurched was as we were driving into Tucson. Returning home from Tucson our coach drove great and it is still driving just fine. I sent an e-mail to Bridgestone but they never answered. I asked Les Schwab and they could not give an answer. I have posted on forums and asked RV industry experts but no one can give me an answer. My guess is that either the tires needed time to allow the rubber to age as they were only 3 months old when they were installed or the tires needed to be driven to break them in. I have never heard of either of my explanations. Safe travels. JD Interesting, our coach isn't a bit squirrley to drive with the Bridgestones wonder why it is with yours?

RE: Best gas engine, is V10 good

We are looking for 32 or less, class A. Note will probably not need diesel as will be moving to MI, WI or such, wouldnot use in winter, nor "travel a lot" in other seasons. Want 32 or less due to size restriction in parks etc, just two of us,do not need more. So if we rule out diesel, what is best gas engine? We have son in law who had Ford with the Trition V10 in truck, had one mess after another, but he is ot exactly know for mechanical skills/knowledge. Many said the "Triton V10 has issues as Ford tired to make a V what ever is needed, rather then dedicated single unit. So what oare experiences with gas engines, failures, great ones, repairs and routine maintenance, etc What is expected miles before major works. Note will do lite maintenance work, oil, fileters, etc. Am mainly diesel guy so no much experinece with the gas. Would you care to elaborate on what type "one mess after another" he's having with his v10?? We've put 90,000 hard miles on the v10 in our 2000 coach with nary a problem. Thanks

RE: Ford v10 or gm 8.1 liter class A

For those with the V-10, how is it pulling a toad over a grade? My dentist (an avid fisherman and Rver, somewhere on this forum) highly urged me to stay away from the V-10 and go diesel. His complaint was the pulling power over a grade. He had his hand in my mouth and was drilling a tooth at the time so I was certain to agree with him. How is your V-10 over a grade? I am sure it has to do with your rigs weight, etc., but on the average, how is it? For whatever it's worth, in 2002 or 03 towing a 1990 Ford Aerostar van with our 2000 v10 powered coach we had occasion or perhaps I should say made a BIG mistake taking alternate US 14A from Lovell to Dayton WY. Barely made it over the grade in 1st gear, but we made it. Later I discovered it was a 10% grade. Now I know why we didn't see any 18 wheelers on that highway. Since that event, had the Banks system installed along with the 5 Star Tune and stay away from any grades over 8%:B

RE: Norcold issue once again

Our Norcold 1200LRIM lasted for 12 years, when it died, replaced the cooling unit with one of those Amish built units and so far it's working great, still using the original circuit board.

RE: Troubleshooting Air Horns (UPDATE)

You need to check to see if voltage is getting to the solenoid air valve, if it isn't you have an open somewhere in the circuit. If you do have voltage, then most likely the solenoid valve is faulty, or sometimes the inside valve assembly gets corroded from moisture in the system. Had a problem with mine and I disassembled the valve, cleaned it out, it then worked. Good luck and let us know the fix..

RE: Frivolous question but I can't find the answer......

The bus is higher in the pecking order of their other models, but one step below the Zephyr model which is presently their top of the line. The Phaeton is one step below the Bus and is a very nice coach. Here's a link to the Tiffin website: http://tiffinmotorhomes.com/

RE: Rambler Admiral vs Coachmen Mirada -- Advice

Logic would dictate that a 2011 model would have a higher value than a 2006, kind of no brainer wouldn't you say...:h Best regards and good luck with your choice....:)

RE: Oil Change V10 Newmar

Re: Only main problem I had was the chassis cross-member that is directly beneath the drain plug that makes it difficult to get an oil catch pan successfully beneath the oil pan without it deflecting the discharging oil and spattering all over the concrete driveway before realizing that it is making an absolute MESS!! Sorry, I forgot I had said don't ask... LOL! I found that by using my leveling jacks if I raise the coach slightly I can fit the oil catch container (flat type) between the axle & oil pan. Sees to work pretty good.
