RE: CEO Of Chrysler, Marchionne In Merger Talks With GM?

Oh the thought of Jeep being made by GM makes my skin crawl.

RE: Raptor Decals

Local guy here does RVs but he tells me that there isn't enough margin to make much money for the labor. He does them as a side job on the weekends to earn extra money for his hobbies. If he charged full price few would pay it. The graphics are pretty cheap its the removal and reinstall labor that adds up. You can check with your local dealer most will tell you who they would send you to, same goes for most auto shops.

RE: Highway 101 CA., OR., WA

Driving 101 through Oregon is pretty easy. Southern part is inland from the beach in some areas, plenty wide and very easy drive. Once you get North of Florence it gets narrower and lot more curves and ups/downs. Use the turn outs, let traffic get around you. Watch your speed, and even closer when you pass through the many small towns. During the summer the tourists are as thick as mosquitoes in the mountains.

RE: Winnebago customer notification letter

We've had ours since 2007 and have had a great run with it. Outstanding dealer and communication with Winnebago has been good. Talk with your dealer about the tape and see what's up. I guess I'd rather know there might be an issue then have them ignore it and it became a real issue out of warranty.

RE: Class A and boats

It's very doable. I've launched with our 35' Winnebago many times. Of course the larger the ramp the easier it is, getting yourself lined up is key. Walk the launch first and know your challenges. As other said you may end up with your tail end submerged, so scout things out and know what's back there. Our generator is at the tail so I can't submerge it, but so far in my 8 launches I haven't come close. It really helps if you have 3 people, driver and two walkers that you can see going down the ramp but only one giving you directions. Rear view camera helps even more. Driver should stay in the motorhome, let the other two disconnect and launch the boat. Same goes for retrieving it. As somebody mentioned finding somebody to launch & retrieve with a truck is a good idea. I watched an older guy with about 2 dozen cases of beer in his cargo bay do this. Said it was the cheapest way to launch/retrieve a boat since he didn't leave it in the lake over night. Pic of our setup launching at Chief Timothy on the Snake River. Once we filled with water we lined up and launched easily, even with just my son and I. But this wasn't a steep ramp, for other steep ramps I'd never leave the motorhome cockpit. https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/3767874/boatlaunch.jpg width=640

RE: Am I Being Realistic?

Imagine the front bumper can't be detached, what about on the rear? Tire, gas can, pintle hitch? If you have the room you're good to go. You might want to place a sheet of plywood up front so if the front bumper hits the wall it won't damage the wall and to spread the impact.

RE: 21' Desert Fox headed to a Boise, ID dealer

Cool on the delivery. Yes Northwood finally updated the DF line. It's always been a great RV but it was looking pretty dated. The new ones look a lot sharper. Glad to see them getting back into the DF 5er market too.

RE: How is your auto insurance?

So much depends on the State you are in, if you're in a Metro area, your credit score and your insurance history plus the type of car(s) you're driving. We use PEMCO, a NW company for everything home/auto/umbrella. But for the Boat we use Nationwide and the motorhome we're with Blue Sky RV. Sadly insurance is not really for taking care of small accidents as you pay for them several times over.

RE: Fuel station as aux diesel tank

Golden_HVAC makes some great points. I'd be more inclined to pick up 3 or 4 yellow portable diesel cans if you need to carry extra fuel.

RE: 21' Desert Fox headed to a Boise, ID dealer

That's sort of like finding a needle in a Hay Stack. Since it's a big camping weekend many folks are gone. Guess the real question is why are asking? http://btr.michaelkwan.com/wp-content/uploads/2007/08/needleinahaystack.jpg width=640

RE: Issue with generator

Did you store it with gas in it? Carb could be the issue.

RE: Where are you heading for Memorial Day?

We're at Moses at least once year. We have have been in Prosser and Leavenworth already this year and will be in Quincy and Spokane later this year. This rolling stone gathers no moss (even if I do live on the wet side). Moss? I remember that stuff when I lived on the Wet side too. Saw this story and thought I'd pass it along to you. Crowds prompt camping change at Moses Lake dunes

RE: Where are you heading for Memorial Day?

Moses Lake will be our destination. Arriving early and leaving late clears out much of the headaches. Welcome to the dry side of the State! Enjoy your stay. :)

RE: 2000 Tahoe Transport 21TB

The unit you have was made by ThorCA which was sold and became MVP, which is now Genesis Supreme RV. You can probably get the sheet at a local RV shop Or you can try Hemet Valley RV Siding & Storage

RE: What grill are you using?

Green Mountain Grill Davey Crockett pellet smoker and Grill. Runs on 12v Care to share some thoughts? How long have you had it? Do you do just grill on it or have you done longer smokes with it? Can you get a couple slabs of ribs on it?

RE: What grill are you using?

I have the Weber Q 100 and it's been very good, but if I had it to do over I'd got with the 200. The 100 has been replaced by the 1000 and the 200 by the 1200, the 1200 has 12,000BTU while the 1000 has 8,500 - for the few extra bucks get the bigger one you'll be happier in the long run. I'd love a new larger one but when the other one is still 100% working order it's tough to justify a new one.

RE: Heartland Error

Wow seems like bait and switch if they are lowering the numbers that you based your purchasing decision on. What's your dealer saying during all of this? I'd be pushing for them to match what the placard says... pushing hard.

RE: Graphics R&R

Originals are expensive. Talk to a local sign/graphics shop. I know one in our town does them, the owner say to keep costs lower he offers to do them on a time available basis, meaning it could take a few weeks. His stuff looks pretty good.

RE: PDI sheet

I've used the Tom Boles' Pre-Delivery Checklist from this site I think the only thing missing on it is to bring a 5 gallon gas can. Enough to empty into the tank and then dispense back into the can to make sure the fuel station is working. If others have a more specific Toy Hauler PDI please share with the group.
