RE: What manufacturer do I purchase?

I didn't see Beaver, Travel Supreme, Entegra, or American Coach on the list. All top notch brands as well.

RE: Does Exhaust brake activate brake lights?

An exhaust or Jake brake is basically just duplicating the inherent compression braking of a gas engine. I don't see any reason for turning on the brake lights every time you lift your foot with either engine. Not exactly. Some Jake brakes have as many as three levels of braking which can be selected by the driver. Some of those levels are much stronger than a gas engine's compression braking.

RE: Creede/Lake City CO

Once you have figured out how to do one mountain pass, the rest are more of the same. Not exactly. Some are narrower and curvier than others, making them more difficult.

RE: Trucks or Buses Left Lane Only. Does that mean me?

Why is this an issue. You are driving a truck, go with the trucks. Wrong. That's the whole point. A motorhome is NOT a truck. In addition, truck or not, you are not expected to make a right turn from the left lane. If you need to exit right, you should be in the right lane comfortably before the exit.

RE: Trucks or Buses Left Lane Only. Does that mean me?

If you are preparing to turn right you should be in the right lane regardless of what you are driving.

RE: storage for one month

I say leave everything on and plugged in. Turn the water suppy and water pump off. Not much different than if you were staying in it. Here in Florida you must have AC or everything mildews. I stored my motorhome this way for 8 months a year for ten years and it worked out fine.

RE: Do You Have Allied Insurance and Made A Claim

I just changed from Allied to Geico and saved money. I KNOW Geico will pay their claims. My wife had an at fault accident in her car almost three years ago and Geico was great to deal with. They increased our rates modestly due to the accident but they will go back to normal when the three years are up. And they are still cheaper than most other quotes.

RE: Registration of a 2014 coach on a 2013 chassis

It is not unusual for the chassis model year to be different than the coach model year. The standard vin (this is on the chassis and cannot be changed) is physically coded to the model year it was issued for, that is "how they know" IMHO, this is not even worth argueing with anyone over. It is a government piece of paper that exists purely to facilitate collecting a tax. It means nothing. You pay a tax to get your title, and then you pay another tax to get your plates... It is still a 2014 whoever whatever motorhome, even if built on a "new 2001" chassis. X2!

RE: Do you rent out your coach?

Friends don't ask :B Well, I have a very good friend who did ask. The answer was NO!

RE: 350 HP ICE vs. 350 HP Diesel?

Boat engines run wide open but they do it at 3000 RPM or so. Big difference in longevity between running wide open all day at 3000 and running wide open all day at 6000 RPM. The latter might turn out to be a short day.

RE: How to flat tow an AWD SUV?

"cautious driving leaving plenty of room to brake" is just self-deception. No matter how cautious you are, you cannot control what others do. There is no telling when another driver will pull in front of you, run a red light in front of you, or have a blowout in front of you. You need to be able to stop in all types of unexpected circumstances, unless you don't mind killing yourself or somebody else.

RE: Sealant for cracks..

Remove old caulk - put new one and then eternabond tape. You won't have to worry about it again. Doxiemom is right. This is the best way to do it. Let the new caulk cure for several weeks before applying he Eternabond. Once the Eternabond goes down, the new caulk is sealed in place and cannot be deteriorated by sun and/or weather.

RE: Sealant for cracks..

If you cannot get the eternabond tape off what do you do when it is necessary to replace a skylight or holding tank vent or fridge vent etc. Cut through it.

RE: 350 HP ICE vs. 350 HP Diesel?

All this talk of HP and torque is only one small part of the equation. Diesel pushers are built better, on better chassis, with better suspensions, and better amenities. They ride better, handle better and are more comfortable. Like most things that provide more benefits, they cost more to buy and to own. I defy anybody to drive them both and then say that they would take the gasser if the cost were the same. There is ONLY one reason to chose a gasser over a diesel: cost savings. If you want save money get the gasser. If you want the best experience regardless of cost, the diesel is the only way to go.

RE: 350 HP ICE vs. 350 HP Diesel?

There is much more difference between the coaches than just the engine. Most diesel coaches have rear engines. That means that all the noise, vibration, and heat are 30-40 feet behind you, instead of right between the front seats. Diesels have air suspensions that perform much better and smoother than the spring suspensions on a gasser. Diesels have more carrying capacity and get better fuel mileage and range (although not better fuel economy because diesel fuel costs more than gasoline). There are many good reasons why a diesel coach costs so much more to buy. Drive them both and you will see. The diesel ride is quieter, smoother and more controlled. Most diesels have larger fuel, water and waste tanks, and more amenities. This is not to say that a gas coach will not do the job, it will. But it is like asking if you want to drive across the country in a Chevy or a Mercedes.

RE: Is buying an RV lot a good investment?

Is a trip on a cruise ship a good investment? Holiday in Europe or the far East? How about tickets to a Broadway show or the Super Bowl? All these things are worth it only if they bring you pleasure and you can afford them. You don't expect to recoup the monetary cost. Likewise with an RV lot.

RE: Pressure washing the batt compartment

No pressure washer, just a hose. Flood the dirt away, don't spray it. You want the acidic corrosion to flow onto the ground and not spray all over the place.

RE: Automatic trannys four down

The world of automatic transmission towing is generally limited to certain models of GM, Ford, Honda and Jeep. Other than Honda there are no Japanese or European models that can be towed with an automatic, with the exception of the pre-2006 Acura MDX which is over 3500 lbs. Forget about Subaru, Nissan, Toyota, MB, BMW, Land Rover, Jaguar. I am sure that some of these European and Japanese cars could be easily made towable, but the towing market is too small for the automakers to care about. I wish it were different as I am tired of the limited selection.
