RE: RV For Dog Rescue Charity

RENT the van for your trips. Mileage is tax deductible and maybe so is fuel costs..??? Maintenance is on the shoulders of the rental company so you arent in the whole at all for that.

RE: Financing a motorhome.

Not what you wanted to hear but.......... YOu should have been saving for this starting about 10 years ago. Something in the 5-10 year old range can save you a TON of money if it is in good shape. I have a 28" C and it would be fine if it had a slide out or two. A shorter term loan will save you money on interest. The problem IS......that not every institution will make loans on RV's at a reasonable interest rate. I always advise young people to NOT get in the habit of financing their "toys" and they don't understand it.......until they get to be in your situation and then it's too late. Good luck. You go out of your way to brighten everyones day....dont you?

RE: In RV park. Now have car to drive. Disconnect RV battery?

Even disconnected electrically...a SMALL (1 to 1.5 amp) trickle charger hooked to that battery wont hurt a thing....and the battery will be up to 100 percent when you need it most Not exactly. A trickle charger left connected indefinitely tends to bring the battery up to a full charge and then OVERcharge it and cause it to lose water. What is needed is a smart, automatic battery maintainer (battery tender). That is NOT a trickle charger. All of the small trickle chargers I ever had personal dealings with ....had enough "memory sense" to shut off after 12.5 volts!:S That way any sever overcharging never happened. And when does indefinitely ever enter into any RV picture

RE: Hemi Engines

Does anyone know why these engines are not being used by Workhorse as a option to Big Block Chevy? Thanks for all opinions! Too much weight and work for the HP you get out of them

RE: In RV park. Now have car to drive. Disconnect RV battery?

Oh, cool. I'll have to see where to buy that disconnect switch. Thanks for the information, everyone. Even disconnected electrically...a SMALL (1 to 1.5 amp) trickle charger hooked to that battery wont hurt a thing....and the battery will be up to 100% when you need it most

RE: Urgent: Need Tire Advice Class A Diesel

I have no idea why on a 33' coach they put 12R22.5 tires. What pressures do you run in them... 85 lbs ??? My point is a 12R22.5 is way more tire than you need for your weights. I would go to 11R22.5 tires that have 492 revs/mile instead of the 12s 487... not enough difference to worry about. You would have to increase your tire pressures by 10 psi because the 11R has a little less load carrying capacity. A 11R is a very common truck tire (your 12R is not a RV tire) and they may even have it in Toyo or Hankook for a lot less money. I would put two 11R on the front and get back to NC. I'm running six Hankook 11R/22.5 on the back of my DP because I did not need 295/80/22.5 on the rear for my weights. I'm running 315s on the front instead of 295s. BIG rubber was installed on CC's because of an imbalance situation.....and when 10's and 11's were installed they bew some out causing wrecks.....hence 12.00 tires at 120 inflation front and 110 psi rear

RE: What DIDNT you like about Born Free brand of coaches?

What didn't I like about our BF: I am quite satisfied with our 2010 BF, because it was custom-built to our unique accessibility needs. I'm also very satisfied with the company's focus on quality, with extensive testing before the unit leaves the factory. To me, the water chamber test just means that it's proven that it overcomes the leakage problem -- when it leaves the factory! The problem with leaks is that, once you take ANY coach on the road -- regardless of whether it's a fiberglass, aluminum on wood, or any other construction -- it will shake, rattle and roll. Over time, without the proper maintenance, any joint has the potential to leak. BF's 3 year warranty includes leakage coverage, so they'll repair any leaks that may occur. How many other builders will warrant theirs for that period? What I dislike about the current BF models: 3-4 years ago, the company made a pivot to "modernize" up their interiors with newer designs. However, although these are fancier, they often create problems for "older" owners (the historic RV audience) with poorly contrasting switch labeling and overly complicated technology (Firefly RV-CAN control systems on an iPad, RiverPark dash entertainment systems, etc.). It must be the modernizing that turns the wife and I off totally. But I asked and recieved the answer I was wanting to hear that THEY will install the brass hardware I purchase to be installed. That modernistic brushed stainless hardware leave me cold....and the interior lights....geeze!!!

RE: What DIDNT you like about Born Free brand of coaches?

I did find one thing from constant browsing. The factory contacted me and sent me some emails of various hardware...fabrics...etc I call them today and said I love the fabrics...the woodwork...etc, But the faucets and door pulls flat left the wife and I stone cold. I wouldnt have them in my outhouse and told the sales guy there exactly that. I asked that if I bought and paid for all that such items in BRASS....would they install them as they were building. I got an affirmative. Time will see whats what?

RE: Diesel or LP generator

If there is actually a choice ( diesel VS LP) definitively go the diesel route.

RE: Grand Teton National Park

Dennis, Since Yellowstone and the Grand Tetons are right there together (7 miles apart), you can stay at the Yellowstone Grizzly RV park at the west entrance to Yellowstone. We found this location very convenient to everything in the area. Mark Its quite a haul from the Grizzly down to the tetons. If you were doing it for a one day trip...Id say OK...but for repeats...BOOO!!! Stay at the Virginian when you are in Jackson...and at the Grizzly when up north. Its TIGHT parking at the Virginian...but you can do it

The old buggy is no more!

Well...looks like the old rat trap is now under new management! Thursday was their lucky day and the wife and I's day of grief....but just like a large thorn in your foot...you grit your teeth and pull it out. 15 years in that coach and almost all were pleasant ones. I wont be seeing a lot of you people for awhile if ever again. If we get another coach it will be a 24-25 foot class B that can tow our Liberty. Anyway....just wanted to stop buy and say ADIOS! to the few friends we have and made in RVing. Those that arent my friends can go straight to ****....but my friends I wish nothing but the best in up coming weeks. Adios Gary and Nancy

RE: 8.7 volts incoming (MAYBE RESOLVED)

RE: Good or bad...Falken tires?

I like Toyo's and will probably go with them, but I was hoping for some better reasons than just "because"... My brother is at the lake and he can flatten a right tire for just a good reason Don But my friend after the big blow out on the Michelin tried firestone tires on his heavy 40 ft Bluebird and said the best tires he has ever had. Hotjag is at the same lake as my brother so not being mean just teasing him. chevman Hey Larry, I talked with your brother last night. He thought the "just because" was a really good reason...haha. I thought maybe I was missing a hidden reasoning. I don't want Michelin's, especially since they are over $2000 more for 6 tires. Here where I live...12R x 22.5 Mich's were.....$905 PER TIRE.....you can guess what I told them. I settled on Firestone s at $515 per tire...M&B
