RE: Yes...this is another tire question...

Recently, when reading a thread on tires (age of tire before replacing), I read a comment from one individual in which he stated the 'clock' starts from the time the tire is installed rather than the time of manufacture. In most cases, such formula would not give the owner much additional time unless the date of manufacture was a year or longer before installed. Just wondering if anyone else agrees (or disagrees) with the writer regarding the 'clock' starting at time of installation. / Larry 2 years ago I took mine to a regional tire place that dealt with jumbo truck tires to get the tires I had on the coach at the time spin balanced. As I stood in the warehouse I happened to look down at a stack of 4 LARGE truck tires....sized for 24.5 rims. ( I mean real jumbos). What made me notice them was the huge cracks in the sidewalls of all I could see and these tires were brand new ( never had been installed) That sure tells me the "decay" of rubber tires must start about the time they leave the mold...let alonE hit the road.!

RE: Spare tire class A motorhome

Even older, by current standards, larger motorhomes do not come with a spare. Most people could not change a 22.5 tire and it could be considered dangerous to even try. Therefore, no tire, no jack. I'm sure the savings in manufacturing and the reduction in weight had nothing to do with the decision. Anyway, when we were taking a Track tour to Mexico I put a used but usable unmounted spare in the underbelly. I then switched it out when I put new tires on the MH with the best of the previous tires. It is out-dated (expired), whatever the proper definition is, and if I had a major tire malfunction in a populated area I would certainly opt to purchase a NEW tire. But, if on vacation, I have the option of having this tire mounted by roadside service and use it until I reach civilization. But in answer to your question, no spare is offered with new larger motorhomes. Mine is a 2000 model year....no spare in it

RE: Correct tire press for Flair 31

On the sidewall of your coach next to the drivers seat here is a metal placard that says that running "X" sized tires you need "Y" inflation to carry its maximum load.

RE: Rodent in the RV.... ACK!!!

I figure the rodent has done from 1500 to 5500 in dollar damages. It hid in the foam of the fold out couch, and the drivers chair. I'm very curious where it found water... I purchased MANY glue traps, and set them all over. I purchased an expensive electronic trap, but I think the rat was sorta smart and it avoided it despite being hungry. Every evening I was trying new methods to get rid of this pest. I was using Jiffy, I think, peanut butter in the smaller mouse traps. That worked, as bait, till the RAT, was able to back out of being caught. I bought a new style Victor Rat Trap, and I put a drop of Olive Oil on the trip mechanism. When I heard the trap SPROING, and I saw the trapped RAT, I initially thought it was a lethal event for the critter. Well, it worked.... sorta. The trap only squashed the critters frontal head. After about two hours, I noticed it was still ALIVE... so I put my foot down on the other side of the trap to suffocate it; seems it worked. ?? why did you wait 2 hours to get rid of the deceased? And use this stuff...http://www.earth-kind.com/news/rvrs-guide-to-winter-storage/....and the mice and such dont even come IN your RV

RE: valve stems and extensions

I took all my valve stem extensions off and tossed them. They are nothing but trouble and cause leaks. And yes I had the "good" ones that take the place of the shorter stems (not the screw on type) they are for sure trouble,so now I check my pressure the hard way. Although I bought a special kit for taking pressure on those inner rear tires. Works great. Ive had extension hoses to my rear wheels for more than 15 years. I had a leak ONCE and that was MY FAULT! It only proves that you have to be smarter than the extension hoses.

RE: valve stems and extensions

Stop getting tires from the "5 and dime" and go to a REAL tire place. They'll change the stems, etc when they do tires

RE: Anti corrosion washer for battery post

Smear Vasoline Petro Jelly on the terminals; cable end...etc. Butter it up good. If battery acid splash cant reach the metal of the terminals....it cant corrode them. Walmart brand works fine... That's what I've done for years, also. Great minds think alike.....:B

RE: Calling all Country Coach experts price check

Also look at motorhomes of Texas for CC. They were a Foretravel, Newell and CC dealer and get them in regularly. They actually have a non slide foretravel for awhile that I like. Danger!...Danger! Will Robinson.. Buy at least a single living room slide model

RE: Calling all Country Coach experts price check

Had a friend from rvnet check if out today and take it for a ride. If has a 8ft x 10ft delam issue. Will pass on this one. Hopefully off to NY Saturday to see the 99 Allure. Had a fella come by today to look at my PaceArrow and think it may be sold. With a delam issue as large as that...you couldnt give me one for free even. Wise choice. If your serious about a CC...keep a close eye on PPL motorhomes. They have some nice ones at times

RE: New Driver Seat

I have a 1998 Country Coach. The driver seat has seen a lot of butt time and is somewhat worn. I could have the seat redone but I wanted to see what is out there that may offer more comfort and maybe an adjustable lumbar support. :Z Check out Bradd & Hall

RE: CB channels...

If its against the law ( many places) to drive down the road with a cell phone to your head....why is it "supposed to be" OK to do the same with a CB ?

RE: National RV, and other orphan values

the real world be a lot lower for orphans The common thought on most forums is that the NADA values for RVs are NOT based on real world prices. A standard % depreciation maybe closer to their printed numbers. I dont believe either part of that post. While I dont think NADA is the gospel...I also dont think that some number printed somewhere reflects the ACTUAL value of a coach

RE: Calling all Country Coach experts price check

DO you have pictures we could see. If you could pay someone to go check out the coach, that way you can be sure it is real. Is 1500 miles a typo, Most coaches have to be driven when delivered. He is 1500 miles AWAY from the coach he might buy...NOT 1500 miles ON the coach.....

RE: Calling all Country Coach experts price check

This is the best negotiation I could do being some 1500 miles apart and not seeing unit in person. I can get this 2001 CC Intrigue double slide with a 370 hp Cummins for just over 50k. Looks to be in mint shape one owner new tires. Only thing wrong is two bedroom windows have a bad creeping seal and on the outside were the hater heater goes through the side wall on the corner there is a 1/4 inch long by 1/16 wide crack. This crack is on the side wall. Sound like a fair price if everything checks out? The book says low retail at $56,700. If you can get it for 50 flat...get them to fix the cracked fiberglass before you pick it up

RE: And where are YOU headed this summer???
