RE: E 450 V 10 MPG

Most RVs wouldn't get 10 MPG on the way down if it fell out of a tree. Just remember that you're driving a house. You got that right "Jim"...:B Someone MIGHT break 10 MPG but its not going to be a constant.

RE: AirTab

I wouldnt put them on a Gitney that I drove back and forth to the outhouse. No different that nitrogen in the tires...tell enough people that "X" is great and you'll have everyone saying that its great. Someone stated that they arent on all new coaches because they cost money. Who you trying to fool anyway? The builders dont install them because they do no good and if there was even an iota of proof that they actually inproved fuel comsumption....buyers would insist on them

RE: Best of the Best???

If you end up with a Ford chassis, either the E-350 or E-450, be sure and get the 55 gallon fuel tank. I think it is standard on the 450 and an option on the 350. Check out the Viper series of B+'s from Nexus RV. I am biased but it is based upon a very good experience with our Nexus Phantom 23P(see my sig). Ours came with a quality innerspring mattress that is probably the most comfortable bed we have ever owned. Other high end/quality features are steel framing, fiberglass roof and end caps, electric power 5 way drivers seat, electric awning, heated tanks etc., and all of this factory direct and priced accordingly. Good Luck! :B Many thanks capt. and the 450 is all Id even think of because the GCWR on a loaded 350 is too low. Again...many thanks

Best of the Best???

Knowing the term "best" is all relative. Im considering a classB+ van conversion. High top model. And I see many different brand names and online advertisements for various models. The wife and I dont need much in the way of comforts. A good bed is one; sufficient A/C is another...etc. It appears that either a Ford chassis or a Mercedes is what is being built on and I have no preference either way except I do want a coach with pretty decent cruising range.....so something with the proverbial "5 gallon" gas tank is going to hack it. What brand and models do YOU like? Any helpful pointers greatly appreciated! Sully

RE: Bridgestone/Firestone Tires

It's time for new tires on the MH. 275/70R 22.5. I stopped by our local Les Schwab tire store today to ask about the FMCA Michelin Advntage program. After explaining it to me, he said that he has sold a lot of the Bridgestone/Firestone tires lately. From what I can find out, there is a savings of about $800 on the out the door price between the Bridgestone/Firestone over the Michelin tires. Does anybody have any experience with these Bridgestone/Firestone tires or have any comments on them? Jerry Im running them on my own rig at present ( 12R-22.5) and they beat the socks off of GY tires I had been using

RE: Engine Oil

The 5-20 is used for the cam timeing not the epa. Stay with 5-20. Why Take à chance? Bob There's a new one every day! WHILE OPERATING the cams wont vary 1 iota whether 5W-20 or 10W-30 motor oil is used!

RE: Engine Oil

In my 2003 F53 I use Motorcraft 5W-20 semi synthetic as suggested by Ford. I have my oil tested by Blackstone Labs. The last test was over 6,800 miles. It used 1 quart over that period. Every time I use 5w-20 in mine I use a qt in 3-4000 miles. With 5w-30 it doesn't use any. That tell you something? It tells me something. Years ago ( early 80's) I had a Chevy Blazer....using 10w30 on a trip to Wyoming Id be a qt low on arrival. Switching to 10W-40....Id make the trip out and back and still be right on the mark. I decided to fork over the $$ for a chassis manual and there it told me that within various temp ranges to run various weights of oil. I stayed with 10W-40 the rest of my life and still do

RE: What diesel conditioner to use for storage??

I use Howe's Lubricator for winter storage and will start adding a biocide in also. After a ruined vacation because of nasty stuff growing in my fuel....I wont chance it anymore. The additives are FARRRR cheaper than a trip stoppage

RE: Change coolant from the green to the extended...

Go straight to Cummins. Tell them what you want and what you want installed and let them handle it. You might also think about a new thermostat at the same time..!! Thats what I did and Im glad of it.

Towing concern(s)

Can a 24ft class B with either a Ford V10 or a Mercedes 6 cylinder be capable of towing a Jeep Liberty that weighs in at 3800 lbs? Ive never had a class B with either engine so Im at a total loss to this question. Thanks

RE: Full-Timing...what's your opinion...

I admit that the thought of full-timing has some appeal but, for me, not enough to make the plunge. In no way should this post infer nor in anyway suggest that those who full-time are wrong in their decisions to move in that direction. My decision not to full-time has to do with my need for a 'place of roots', family doctors, family living in the area of the 'sticks and bricks' and simply the unknown of such a drastic life style change. Now to the purpose of this post: I would like to hear back from those of you who feel, as I, that full-timing is not in the cards for you and your reasons for those decisions. Thanks! / Larry This clearly sounds like a cry for help. You want justification for NOT being a full-timer. You need help, my friend. Deep down inside you really want go! You want others to pat you on the back for not having the courage to do what you really want to do. Buck-up! Just do it! There is a whole new adventure waiting for you! Home is where you park it. You can do this! If you really prefer "stick and brick" living, then why did you post this? With one..single post under your belt....why get on the OP's back about his decision? Wait till you have a couple of seasons under your belt before you spout off your decision or get on someone else's back.

RE: 2010 Jeep liberty Toad option

I purchased my older son a 03 Liberty that I just sold last week. He had it for seven years and not one problem and he took it off road all over Ct. and were he went to school in Vt. He was also a snowboard instructor at Killington mountain so drove in some pretty nasty weather and road conditions. I also purchased my younger son a 2008 Liberty in 2010 it had 80,000 miles on it and was/ is in awesome shape I picked up the 08 for 13k. I have a Wrangler that I use just to plow with and for a toad. Actually all three have never been to the dealer or needed repair. This is a pic of the 03 the day it left the house. http://i.imgur.com/0rstH1wl.jpg Same color as my 2002 Liberty. Keep an eye on the auto tranny pan. Mine rusted thru from the outside in!!??? It was an easy change out but Im glad it didnt happen out on the freeway somewhere
