RE: Class C jacks?

I know folks say they just push the button and its done, I cant say that nor can my Brother in law who has a class A. He also uses blocks for the pads to level and even has to level manually. On mine the auto feature raises the back and the front stays down! I also pre-level the rv when we get to a parking place. 2x10s or maybe the yellow stack pads. But be careful when putting the jacks down on soft ground or even asphalt they can stick or sink. If its raining and not off level much I just wait till it stops then add the blocks under the jacks. On my class A I just press the button and let it do its thing. With air ride / air leveling thats all thats needed and it will adust itself from time to time

RE: Class C Leveling Jacks

Not only do they add lots of weight to your rig, they are expensive! I have had my rig for over a year (24'), and have used my yellow levelers 3 times...so easy! I would rather use my money for something important! :) Quite evident you never had a set of good working jacks!!:E To the OP: IMHO HWH jacks are the best. Not the cheapest...just the best. Just like a VISA card...dont leave home without them!

RE: Rigs over ten years old

Ours (see sig) is over 10 years old. We like it that way, simply because here in Montana that means we can put PERMANENT registration on it. We never have to renew as long as we own it. We took a trip from here to Chattanooga and back in it, and never once did any campground manager ask how old our rig was. The question was never asked in our trips through Washington, Oregon, California, Idaho, Utah, Montana, or Nevada, either. IIRC, we have NEVER been asked that question. Same here bro.....never have been asked

RE: Transmission Retarder vs Exhaust Brake

What is better, which works best ? A MH I'm considering has the transmission retarder is the reason for my question, I have no experience with either. On a scale of 1 to 10.....if the exhust brake is a 2....the tranny retarder is a FIFTY!

RE: Class C jacks?

I bought the HWH kick down jacks, shortly after I arrived in a CG when it was pouring rain. HWH was what I had on my sped sheet for a class C that Im looking at but the salesman told me they use this other brand. All in all In not too impressed with their specs

RE: Repair Shop Wait Times. What was the longest wait?

I think it matters if an appointment was made or if you just dropped the coach off for service, unannounced. It dont at my local shop. I can even include the parts and its 5-10 days before they look at it.

RE: Repair Shop Wait Times. What was the longest wait?

How long have had you had your motorhome in the shop for? I brought my rig in on July 13th for some brake work and a new alternator. It took them 3 weeks to even look at it. Another 8 weeks later, they conceded that they couldn't locate new calipers. It took me 5 minutes of web searching. I gave them the parts and now they are still dragging their feet. They are the only game in town, otherwise I'd go anywhere else. I'd do it myself, but I don't have the heavy equipment for it. There is nothing special about your coach.....Load it up and take it to the nearest LARGE truck repair facility

Class C jacks?

Who has Lippert brand 4 point leveling on their coach and how do you like it? Does it do its job? Repairs if any...etc. Thanks

RE: spare tires

I think Ivylog has the right idea: put a spare, unmounted if you wish, wrapped up on the roof. Then pull that big mudflap off! If someone cant handle a 120 lbs tire to get it on...how in gods name do you expect them to get it on the roof....toss it up there...:S.:S

RE: How to Repair Scuffed Gel-coat?

Believe it or not Toothpaste works! Preferrably non gel type. If you can find it...tooth POWDER works lots better

RE: Who pulls what toad behind their class C?

OK...still looking at a 28 foot class C, of course on a Ford chassis with a V10 engine, and wondering what people do...if anything...for a toad? Ive got a Jeep liberty that on the scales sits at 3710 lbs and its an oldie but goodie as its a 2002 model. Ive pulled it a ton of miles behind our class A rig and would sure hate to have to get rid of it! So..what if anything do you tow when you hit the road? Hi Sully. I'm happy to hear that like me you are upgrading to a class C. I used to enjoy your posts in the A. To your question. I have towed several vehicles, 4 down and tow dollyed. By far the best was the Wrangler Unlimited 4 doors (JK). Even with the 305HP V10 it towed great. If you get a C with the 362HP V10, I would imagine it would be even better. Dont really know if the term "upgradng" is the right one...:B But lets say a definite change of pace in our RVing and we are just trying to get something that will fit the traveling the way we like to do it.

RE: Replacing tires with wider tires.

Hi, I upgraded to wider and taller tires. If you have duals it requires new rims so the offset is correct. It improved mileage and handling and got me into a "safe zone" for tire carrying capacity. I would do it again. Make sure there is fender clearance. I had 8R-19.5s on a 1993 Southwind and switched to 225-70 x 19.5 Bridgestones and never replaced anything. Ive never seen a P30 yet that a direct swap from 8R's to 22-70's couldnt be easily accomplished

RE: Tips for keeping mice out?

I've heard of a couple: moth balls (not too healthy for humans, though!), or the strongest scented fabric softener sheets. Right now I've got 4 electronic devices plugged in that emit a sound that the critters don't like and I think that is working. Plus moth balls in the basement compartments and the sheets scattered throughout inside the coach. I've seen products at RV stores, like "botanical rodent repellant". Do any of you have some favorite products or recommendations? http://www.earthkind.com/news Its worked for me for 5 years now

RE: Where can I buy large tire covers

RE: Who pulls what toad behind their class C?

We have a class "C" Bengal Tiger (The Tardis). We are towing a Smartcar on a trailer built for the Smartcar. You don't even know it's behind you until you look at the rear camera. Towing on a trailer VS 4 on the ground allows us to back up when necessary. The Smartcar can be towed with 4 on the ground but to me it puts a lot of ware & tare on such a small vehicle. The cost of the trailer VS tow bar, break activator & toad mods is almost tit-for-tat. http://i.imgur.com/QxXmBwJl.jpg Those things plus the SmartCar crack me up. I doubt I could even get in one but they are a total hoot to see. EDIT: I see that IS a Smart Car...thought it was another of those teeny tiny auto's
