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.

RE: Avoiding garden state parkway south

84-81-77-26-95 is the only way. The GPS says it is an hour longer but in real life, traffic, stoppages for no reason, and other aggravations it is much the better and less time route. I have gone both ways in a big truck many times and I know the difference. I totally agree. I've done it every way possible and the above route is prettier, more relaxing, and avoids all the big cities with their associated traffic and delays. Winchester VA is a favorite stopping over point.

RE: Lincoln mkx 2016

The dealers give contradictory information and there is just no way to know the truth without getting it directly from Lincoln. Can you provide a way for me to contact your person at Lincoln?

RE: Lincoln mkx 2016

Hot news! I went to the Lincoln dealer and took a demo ride of the 2016 MKX. I then asked the salesman to demostrate how to prepare the car for towing. The salesman went in to the manager and came out and told me that they just got word that the 2016 MKX CANNOT BE FLAT TOWED. Wherupon I walked out. End of story.

RE: Help Tiffin ceiling panels falling down

Most dealers can't fix things right, especially major things. That's why folks go back to the factory.

RE: Lincoln mkx 2016

Not sure, just un-nerved by the original post in this thread.

RE: Lincoln mkx 2016

Back to the original topic: I went to my Lincoln dealer and showed them the original post in this thread and asked them to get me something in writing saying towing a 2016 MKX is authorized. They came back to me with the Ford Fleet Towing Guide, which clearly shows on p. 11 that the 2016 MKX can be towed 4 down. So that makes the owner's manual AND the towing guide which say thumbs up. Should I trust this?

RE: Lincoln mkx 2016

I just had an online chat with a Lincoln advisor who told me that 2016 MKX is towable.

RE: Class A purchasing help - input requested & welcome

Hard to find a diesel pusher in your size range. Most of the ones made were 40 to 45 feet. A few around at 38 or below, but they are few and will be very hard to find.

RE: Lincoln mkx 2016

Grimshaw, how did you discover that the owner's manual is wrong? We were just about to buy a '16 MKX for towing.

RE: Test Drove 2 DP's this weekend... and an earthquake...lol

My Entegra coach is extremely quiet. There are no rattles on most roads and I cannot hear the engine at all. They use a Spartan chassis and then Entegra welds in added x-bracing for extra chassis stiifness and strength. The ride is awesome. Try to test drive an Entegra.

RE: My solution to Sleep Number mattresses bursting...

I totally agree. I have had an inflatable RV mattress since 2003 and have been very pleased with it. Always reduce pressure in the mattress before going to higher altitude. After nine years of travel I still don't find it to difficult to push the button on the remote and air the mattress "down" before a big change in altitude. It doesn't seem hard to me, and I am lazy.

RE: Protect-A-Tow Problem

Do you have a mud flap/gravel guard hanging from the rear of your coach? I put my eyebolts into that.

RE: RainX Windshield Chip Repair

I have some tiny chips, smaller than the head of a pin. Are these repairable? Are they worth worrying about or too small to matter?

RE: Will Single A/C cut it?

I agree you need two. I had a 40 foot DP with two 13.5s and it was hot inside. I replaced one 13.5 with a 15K and it made a little improvemnt but not much. Now I have a 45 footer with 3 15K units and it is comfy in any weather. One A/C unit is simply insufficient for anything over 26 feet, unless you spend all your time in cool weather.

RE: Honda abandons Dinghy market? maybe not!

Agreed. The car manufacturers are not concerned about keeping or losing our business. We are a tiny sliver of the market and they have much bigger groups to target. That is why Honda no longer makes towables, although I did read that the 2015 Honda Fit is towable with manual trans.

RE: Hydro Hot Question

There is a low fluid sensor that shuts it down. You probably lost some fuid by leak or evaporation. I used to have a tiny leak and this would happen. A few onces of fluid added would fix it. Since it took so little fluid I used distilled water which only very slightly reduced that antifreeze concentration.

RE: Brand new 2014. What % discount?

Hmmm. How do you get past the salespeople to the boss? Some of these car dealers have many levels of management.

RE: Where have all the ladders gone?

I had two previous coaches without a ladder and I can tell you it was a royal pain to try to get up there on the roof when something needed done. Our present coach has rails and a strong ladder built into the rear cap, and I wouldn't be without it now. Even if a branch needs trimming I can quickly climb up and take care of it along with washing the roof and doing any maintenance needed. The ladder would be a deal breaker for us. JMHO I totally agree. For me an attached ladder is a must. My Entegra Anthem came with no ladder and I paid to have one added. Oddly, the lees expensive Entegra Aspire comes with a ladder. The problem with a portable ladder is that it can slide away as you go on or off the roof. It can fall back, or sideways. I want my ladder screwed in place for safety.
