RE: Afraid to make the leap to diesel

Nothing to be afraid of. Diesels are at least as reliable as gas engines, probably more so. They run hundreds of thousands of miles in trucks and busses with no maintenance except fluid and filter changes. Yes, more expensive to fix but they hardly ever need fixing. The driving experience in a diesel is far better than in a comparable gasser.

RE: 2015 Lincoln auxbraking

I have a 2010 MKT and I have been using this brake since 2010. Works great. However, nowadays most people are going with the Air Force One.

Colorado 91 Copper Mounain to Leadville

Is this route doable in a 45 foot DP with toad?

RE: north thru N.J. Turnpike/ GSP/thru-way...are they the same

I have driven the GSP north of the turnpike the whole way to NY state and there are no problems for any size rig.

RE: Air ride with 8 bagz

I had a Beaver with 8 airbags for ten years. I traded it a few years ago for an Entegra on a 4 airbag Spartan chassis. The Spartan chassis rides far better, and handles just as well or better, so I don't miss the extra airbags at all. To be fair, the Beaver was 40 feet with no tag, and the Entegra is 45 feet with a tag, so the comparison is not a direct one. But my point is that eight airbags are not needed to make an outstanding chassis. Witness all the high end Newmars, Entegras, American coaches and others on four airbags.

RE: Where is Winnebago in the Gasser lineup?

While DSDP Don's post may sound harsh, he is right about the need to "kick the tires". You must narrow down your choices to a few models, and then go through them and imagine living in them. Try everything you can, open every cabinet, sit in every seat. Examine the storage bays and the tank capacities. Check the levelling sytem, operate the slideouts. Sometimes it is the little things that can tip the scales. A great way to do this is at a major RV show such as FMCA nationals, Tampa Supershow, or the big annual show in Harrisburg PA where you can directly compare one model versus another. When I bought my first motorhome, I flew half way across the country to do this and it was well worth the time and money spent.

RE: Entegra

Entegra quality is as good as any, and better than most. Their 2-year warranty is unique in the industry. Factory support is beyond terrific. It is the best insulated coach around, which makes it very comfortable and very quiet. The specially reinforced Spartan chassis is a real winner. All this, and it is priced very attractively compared to the competition. Many things that are options on other coaches, are standard equipment on Entegras.

RE: Lincoln mkx 2016

I have done a whole lot of homework. I have asked Lincoln spokesmen directly and consulted both their owners manual and their towing guide. In every instance they said that ALL Mkts can be towed four down, but the dealers say no, so who am I to believe? It is a conundrum.

RE: Lincoln mkx 2016

Thanks for your reply. I will do what you suggested.

RE: Lincoln mkx 2016

Thanks for the report, ceativepart, and best of luck with your new tow car. I had really wanted the Eco-Boost, and I'm still puzzled because the manual says it can be towed but dealer says no. I wish Lincoln and their dealers could be on the same page so that customers would not be left hopelessly confused.

RE: Chevy Volt as toad and battery system for RV

Possible, yes. Economically feasible, not very likely in our lifetimes. The development cost would be too large to be paid off by the relatively small number of RV's that could afford it.

RE: 2015 Toyota Highlander V-6 All Wheel Drive Towing

Also Lincoln MKX, Lincoln MKT, Buick Enclave, Cadillac SRX. My 2003 Acura MDX was AWD and towable, but the new ones aren't.

RE: Do you cross your safety cables?

I can't see any good reason NOT to cross them. There is no downside to doing it, and it could keep the broken parts off the ground in the event of an equipment failure or breakage.

RE: MagneShade Owners

If you want to save money go to www.rv-sunscreen.com. The RV Promptscreen costs less than half as much as Magneshade. It goes up easily in two minutes with no ladder needed and nothing to attach permanently to your coach. The only drawback is that it doesn't always lay completely flat on the windshield, so it may sag a tiny bit. I have nothing to do with the company but I have used the product happily since 2003. Looks just like the Magneshade.

RE: Any tips for driving 40' class A diesel in snow

Gee I hope you have a really good reason for wanting to do this. To me it is far more risk and trouble than it is worth. I'd rather wait it out and drive in good conditions.

RE: Lincoln mkx 2016

I've seen that evidence too, but when a Lincoln salesman who makes his living on commission tells me it is not towable, that shatters my confidence. I don't want to invest 50 grand in this car with crossed fingers.

RE: Lincoln mkx 2016

Owners Manual says yes. Dealer told me no. Poster above says not with Eco engine. I want the Eco Engine. I'm not buying unless and until there are online people reporting sucess over a period of time. It is just too confusing. A definitive confirming statement from Lincoln would be a big help here. Does anybody here know someone in Lincoln management?

RE: If you had to buy again today...

The only reason that I have a 45 footer is because they don't make a 50. Bigger is more luxurious, drives better, rides better and carries more. Most people who trade are trading for a larger size, and trading is very costly. Unless you have a special need for smaller, go bigger.

RE: Lube pumps for towing

j-d is right. The number of people who want to tow is a drop in the bucket to car manufacturers and they are not going to make their decisions to please us. Hence the disappearance of some great towable vehicles. At one time all Hondas were towable, Acura MDX, Ford Escape, etc. No more. The towable vehicle with auto trans is an endangered species. I wish that Remco or somebody else would make lube pumps to fit a wider array of vehicles.
