RE: Given choice gas or diesel powered fill time coach

Don't take this the wrong way but it's apparent you've never owned a diesel. While a gas coach is wonderful, I cannot think of even one advantage it has over a diesel. Even when not driving, typically the build materials are a touch above a gasser - not a knock on a gasser, there is just more chassis under the diesel to handle the weight so they can use heavier materials. Also the basement storage of a diesel is something a gasser just can't do. And full timing storage is always at a premium. Now get to the driving side of the discussion. Years ago we were warned by friends DO NOT DRIVE A DIESEL PUSHER UNTIL YOU ARE READY TO SIGN THE PAPERS. They were right. X2 the whole post

RE: Big FMCA Rally Advice

We've never been to one of these but I think we will head up to Wisconsin to check out the one coming up at the end of the month. We are in a 40 footer with toad. I've got a few questions directed toward FMCA rally veterans: 1. They offer dry camp, 30 amp and 50 amp. No prob dry camping for us but what do you prefer? 2. Anyone stay outside the rally and buy day passes? 3. Any prob leaving a well behaved dog in coach when attending seminars? 4. Any prob getting toad out on demand? 5. How about the seminars? Are they usually full? Any other advice? Thanks. jor 1) Prefer SOME real electricity 2) that sucks 3) You know the dog. We left our AC running (Genset)and had no prob. 4) We didnt have a toad at the time 5) Many are full...get in early

RE: OK to mix tire brands? (Front/Steer tires)

OK. When I get the ball joints replaced and the front end all fixed up at Spartan in a couple of weeks, I'm going to have them put Goodyear 661's on the front, which I'll be bringing along with me. Yea, I know, they're not "RV tires" per se', but they're supposedly very good for steer tires (can be used in all positions too). They are a lot heavier duty than the RV670's for sure. 275/70R22.5 LOAD RANGE J. The thread pattern is kind of similar to the Michelin XRV style. The only thing that concerns me a little is how much "harder" they will ride since they're so much more heavier duty? The tire dealer that I deal with said they they've put them on quite a few DP's and after they "break in" a bit, they should be fine. They claim to not have had any complaints. Mark: Check and see if those 661's are short haul tires or long range / over the road tires. It makes a difference for sure

RE: Question about 30 amp vs 50 amp service

My 97 holiday rambler could run two acs on 30a. It had a smart controller. My '93 Southwind was the same way...30 amp service...2 rooftop AC's.

RE: Air brakes

RE: Preventative Air Brake Maintenance

Why not replace all 4 at once...at the same time??

RE: Roof Vent Covers

Looking into adding roof vent covers to our motorhome so we can leave the vents open and not worry if it rains. Have you added them to your RV and do you like them? What brand did you get? Will it still allow the roof vent to open all the way? Thanks :) I had them installed over the telephone when I was ordering my second RV. Wouldnt have a coach that didnt have them

RE: searching for a coach

Too much air in new tires especially will give loose handling but if the pressures are around 100 psi then there's probably something else wrong. 340 HP will be a Cummins ISB 6.7L engine... a good LITTLE engine but less than 700 ft lbs of torque. A Cummins ISL (400-450 HP) 7.9L engine is limited to 1250 ft lbs as that's the max for the Allison 3000 tranny. 340 compared to 400 not a big increase, but 690 to 1250 is a huge difference. Maybe in your coach.... I run 110 in the rear and 120 in the front AS RECOMMENDED by CC!

RE: OK to mix tire brands? (Front/Steer tires)

FINALY found this thread Mark. I posted info to you in a PM but here it is again. I had 12R-22.5 Firestone tires installed That were quite a big cheaper than anything else I had priced. 16 ply tired. And some of the other bands that are talked about time and again...the local "tire guy" wouldnt even sell to me. Not for any reason!! Firestone FS560 tires..ride good...handle nice..etc

RE: Being pulled over by LEO

A very interesting thread. First, the only time I've been stopped was at a DUI checkpoint and the officer just looked at me thru the window and asked me a few questions and sent me on my way. But I find it interesting to see how many people are so paranoid about the police entering their MH. Whats the big deal? If the situation presented itself, I'd ask the officer in to sit and have a cold drink or a cup of coffee. Course, I don't think I fit the profile of a gangbanger or dope head but not all gangbangers and dope heads look like gangbangers and dope heads either. Amen to all of that!

RE: OK to mix tire brands? (Front/Steer tires)

OK. Thanks for all of the informative replies to my initial post/question. Clearly, there were a couple of details that I wasn't considering. Don't know how this turned into a "this brand is better than this brand" thread (not my original question), but since it has, let me put this question out there.... How is it factually known that Goodyear, Michelin, Bridgestone/Firestone, etc. are "better" tires than Cooper, Toyo, Yokohama, Hankook, Sumitomo, Dunlop, Continental, etc.? Why? Because they're more expensive than the others? Because marketing literature says so? Perhaps because the popularity of the brand names indicates "popular name=higher quality"? I would like to know. Has there ever been any known statistical testing done on RV tires? FWIW, I've been exclusively running Goodyear G670RV's on my motorhomes (current size, 275/70R22.5 LRH). However, given the current, ever increasing prices of not only the Goodyears, but the Michelin RV Tires as well, I find it hard to believe that they are the ONLY tires we could/should be "safely" running on Class A DP's as some would seem to have us believe. I feel that because "RV" is included in the model description, we're getting "jacked' for a couple of hundred extra bucks per tire. Then again, I realize that I could be completely wrong... It ISNT "factually" known. Im running Firestones at present and love them. LOTS better ride and handling than the Goodyear G670's i did have on it

RE: OK to mix tire brands? (Front/Steer tires)

Thanks for the very informative reply Busskipper. Dont run different size OR different brands of the same size on the front.

RE: Bent awning roller

Buy a new tube....your wasting time trying to straighten the existing one. After this...prior to any heavy downpour...set your awning so one corner has a DEFINITE slope to it. Rain will then collect and run down the low corner and run off. I sit mine so the low end will hit me in the head ( Im 5'10") and the high end I cant even jump up and touch

RE: Transmission Rebuild cost?

SULLY2: The shop I used for the tranny replacement offered me two choices: 1- rebuild what I had, or 2- Jasper They never mentioned a new one from Ford. I wonder why....that option never occurred to me...I'm courious if Ford even offers that. The Jasper works OK....as expected. Ford and GM both sell re-manufactured transmissions. Normally they have a three year warranty and are excellent units at competitive prices. Yepper...they sure do!

RE: Being pulled over by LEO

I would always approach the drivers window... With a normal vehicle...yes. With a motorhome...NO WAY am I going to cause a police officer to stand in traffic to talk to me inside. Some people dont watch TV enough to see all the cops and other people get HIT by some DUMB*** driver going down the road
