RE: Best TPMS?

I have a TST TPMS. TST or Truck System Technologies. It is my second TPMS as the first one would not display current pressure on all sensors. For my TST System I have installed a signal booster. TST has been good with tech support. Safe Travels. JD

RE: Soon to be full timers but a question re: 6 speed gassers

I made an error. The five speed selector is D321. The six speed is D421.

RE: Soon to be full timers but a question re: 6 speed gassers

Hi. I traded my 2006 five speed for a 2016 six speed. The shift patterns have been changed in the six speed. Top RPMs in the five speed is about 5200 RPMs. When climbing at 5200 RPMs the cab is very noisy. I would disengage cruise control and climb at 4000 RPMs. Top RPMs for the six speed is about 4200 RPMs. The six speed is much quieter than the five speed. My 2016 is much easier to drive than my 2006. White knuckle driving is greatly reduced. I'm much more relaxed when driving my 2016.I don't know what makes my 2016 more stable. My 2006 had 19.5 tires and my 2006 has 22 inch tires My 2016 is about 4 feet longer and it is on a heavier chassis. I had a Safe-T-Plus steering damper, and a sway bar, and trac bar added before I drove the coach. Love it. Winnebago Sightseer 33C. Very informative, thanks! Can you say if the six speed is able to lock out higher gears or better yet selectively choose one gear in a manual mode? In my Ford pickup six speed I can disable upper gears incrementally in D or go to manual mode and select one gear and no shifting out of that gear will happen, even when using cruise control. I would love to have that control for the MH. I do not have knowledge of the pickups other than others have said that they wished that in their F53 six speed they could select gears like they can in their trucks. The gear selector allows for downshifting from drive to 3, 2, or 1, but I allow cruise control to pick the gear or I drive allowing the transmission to pick a proper gear. If cruise control gets too far in the hole cruise control will disengage. I keep my foot on the gas when climbing so that if cruise control disengage I can take over. I'm retired and I no longer feel the need to get somewhere fast. So climbing a grade somewhat slower is fine to a point. I will pass the trucks that are climbing at a snails pace. Safe travels. JD

RE: Diesel in Cortez Colorado

I'm currently in Cortez, CO. We drove past the Ute Casino today and they do have a Mobile gas station just south of the casino on 491. The gas pumps appear to have ample room for big rigs and there are also diesel pumps for large diesel trucks. Safe travels. JD

RE: Stuck in the mud, any tips?

Wow! Not fun. We sometimes drive our motorhome to my brother's house at Bethel Island, CA in the delta. That is where our motorhome is right now. My wife asked last night if we needed to move it to safer ground. We are in Washington State so it would be a long drive. I checked the path of least resistant for the water and it appears that the south delta should be safe. I got stuck near a lake in Wise, VA and had to dig out my steps before the tow truck arrived. My steps deployed when I exited but would not retract. It took eight hours for a tow truck to arrive so digging out the steps gave me something to do. I think you need to dig out your jacks and retract them. I would buy a 2 X 12 to use as a jack pad. Then you can jack up the rig. I've never had a lot of luck trying to drive an RV on wood so, if you plan on gravel later, try making gravel paths for your drive wheels. Another option is to raise the jacks and call a tow truck. My niece says that there is another storm predicted for this weekend so whatever you do do it quickly. My sister-in-law said with all the rain I might need a tow to get out of her yard. Safe travels.

RE: Satalite vs Antenna TV

I had cable before changing to satellite. Satellite can go out because of rain or snow but no more often than my cable service went down for unknown reasons. Satellite outages can be a result of antenna size. I have a Winegard Carryout portable satellite antenna and a Winegard Roadtrip installed on our RV. Satellite DirecTV signal is weaker in the northwest. My installed Roadtrip antenna looses a signal when we have a heavy rain in the northwest but my larger Carryout portable antenna can pick up a signal in the rain. A portable dish similar to a dish mounted on a house picks up a good signal, even in Canada, but a manual antenna can take time to aim at a satellite to find a signal. RV automatic satellite dishes make locking onto a signal easy. If you live in the southern part of the US the Winegard Roadtrip will work but if you live north you may want a satellite antenna with a larger dish. Safe travels. JD

RE: Motorized Sun Shade

It's probably just setting the limits issue. I haven't had to adjust mine but there are what appears to be wires or cords (about 4" long) on the passenger side attached to the shade mechanism. These are used to set the limits when the ignition is on. I don't know if you have the same model. Safe travels. JD
