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: 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.

RE: Motor home insurance

We've been insured with Foremost Ins. Co. now for 20 years. Over those years we've filed several claims totaling over $10,000 including our 1st and current coach. We always received prompt no hassle claim service and just had our first premium increase this year of $95.00 on our $250.00 deductible, full coverage policy. Our Current annual premium is $922.00 which I consider reasonable for the coverage we have, and the excellent claim service we've received over the years. Based on our experience, I would highly recommend Foremost Insurance Company. Good luck with your choice and safe travels...:)

RE: Early 90's Class A --which brand best to buy?

You might want to look at used Dolphin or Tropi-cal's built by National RV and/or Allegro coaches built by Tiffin also Dutch & Country Stars built by Newmar. All built decent quality coaches in the 90's Good luck on your search....

RE: # of watts solar system needed to MAINTAIN coach batteries?

Our coach has 4ea 6v deep cycle batteries and we have a 100w solar panel with controller which more than adequately maintains both coach & chassis batteries.
