RE: Firestone FS560 Tires

I have 19.5" 560's on my Bounder with over 20k and would purchase again. Better handling than the goodyears they replaced. Jack H

RE: Do I need a special TV?

No special TV and no special toilet paper.:B:B:B:B I would suggest a LED as they are very thin and do not weigh very much. X2 I installed a 32" Samsung LED - 13# and 27 watts. Good luck. Jack H

RE: Class A Fuel Mileage

IMO, if you are worried about fuel economy you probably should not be thinking about a motorhome of any type or size! Ad nauseam. There are great opinions out there! This is not one of them. Telling someone not to worry about their MPGs is like telling McDonalds not to worry about the cost of a 7 cent cup. Why worry about cents when you make billions? It all most certainly matters in the end, but then again we already covered this quote; ad nauseam. Obviously the OP doesn't "IMO" your attitude on MPG, or they would not have asked.... There is a big difference in the fuel topic that is common here and the cost per cup for McD's. Yes for the Millions of cups that go into and out of the doors of any fast food chain the price of a cup counts. However we are talking of a single motor home that is operated by a private owner. What is the average miles a private owner racks up every year? The difference of 1-2 MPG is not going to have that drastic of a impact on the cost of owning, maintaining and operating a RV. If after purchasing the RV the cost of operating an RV that gets 10 MPG vs the cost of operating one that gets 7 MPG is going to impact your usage perhaps RVing is not for them. Fuel cost and usage is discussed here so much that it almost has become a source of entertainment. To read post of the efforts people will go through to attempt to cut their fuel cost when in reality it is a small part of the cost of owning an RV. Fuel cost/mile is something the driver has some control. Saving 1 MPG over 10,000 miles approx $550. To dismiss this effort is both condescending and insulting. Good luck. Jack H

RE: Lake Michigan...

Grand Haven State Park if you can make reservations. On Lake MI and the Grand river Channel. Beach ranked in top 10 world. One of the most photographed light houses on Lake Michigan and walking distant to great downtown on riverside boardwalk. Between Holland and Muskegon and 25 miles west of Grand Rapids. Good luck.

RE: Class A Fuel Mileage

tinkerer, same here! We have found that there are a lot of different factors when rolling down the road. The nice thing about the big diesels is the the +/- is relatively small no matter what you are towing. I haven't seen as low as 5.5, but a strong headwind going uphill gave me 6. Normal conditions, we stay right in the mid 7s. My truck pulling a FW stayed between 9-10. So when we did the math, the 2.5 mpg difference didn't equate to much and having 100 gallons of diesel vs 34 is huge! I like not fueling unless I want to! For those that keep feelin the need to pipe in and ask why, I too want to ask why? If you think the OP doesn't deserve your response, don't give it! Ever get a check in the mail for 17 cents? The accounting always matters and if someone owes you 17 cents, they will pay postage, print and paper, just to get it to you because the books must be right. Same thing when figuring costs on RVing, everything matters and I agree with the OP and I DO track my mileage. If you start getting 5 and always got 8, something is wrong! I think it is important to know all the costs. It is smart. Why post otherwise basicially telling the OP they are silly for wanting to know? X2 Why! To brag that cost doesn't mater to them. Whoopty do! A few people on this forum are on a fixed income and watch costs very closely. I track mileage with scan gauge and adjust speed to maximize mpg. I feel good about the $300+/yr I save. Thanks. Jack H

RE: power step extends part way.

The power step extends part way. Problem started with a hesitation while extending and now extends about 1/2. Any simple fix? Thanks Jack H Thanks for all your feedback. I ended up hiring a mobile guy who replaced the motor/gear assembly. 3 broken bolts and unavailability of separate parts meant buying the whole assembly for $280, total cost $550. Thanks. Jack H

RE: Possible to run heat at night without killing your batteries

Not a battery answer but does solve the problem of killing the batteries. http://www.mrheater.com/ProductFamily.aspx?catid=41 A Mr. Heater plus a down comforter works for me. I don't run the heater all night but start it about 1/2 hour before I'm up for the day. Its like a little fireplace. I have been known to run the furnace 10 minutes to get the chill off. Good luck!

RE: Quratzite, AZ

Just spent 2 weeks on Plamosa Rd. My 8th year and the best weather. Sunny, 70's and very little wind. Venders said traffic down 30% but business about the same as last year. I enjoy "Q". (Silly Al's Pizza alone is worth the trip) Good luck. Jack H

RE: ReadyBrake and Honda Fit

Why, it's so light you don't need one. Is over 2,600# plus what you stow "so light"? Poor advice. Jack H

RE: ReadyBrake and Honda Fit

I had a Roadmaster Brake master installed on my 2009 Fit, no problem. It has an air hose through the firewall. I believe 09 through 13 have the same drive train and engine layout. Good luck! Jack H

RE: replacing dometec refrigerator

My Dometec 2 door 8cf refer developed a leak and has to be replaced. Good Sam will only repair not replace nor will they pay for necessary removal of the dinette window per camping world Denton TX. I may be able to understand not paying for a new unit (I am paying the difference.) But I strongly object to paying 3 labor hours for the removal. This is normal part of repair and should be paid. Thanks jack h I thought the refer had to taken out to repair? Thanks for your friendly feed back. jack h

RE: flying J propane

Hi Bird Freak, The LP gas discount at Camping World is for all Good Sam Club members (not just seniors). Every Tuesday & Wednesday Good Sam Club members get LP gas for only $1.99 a gallon at select Camping World SuperCenters. We say “select” because this discount is offered at those Camping World SuperCenters that sell LP gas. You can find a list of SuperCenters here to contact and see if the location you're interested in visiting sells LP gas. Hi easlingn & chili's trip, To answer your question, Good Sam Club members who have the Pilot Flying J RV Plus Charge Card save 10¢ on each gallon of bulk propane at Pilot Flying J. Learn more about the Pilot Flying J RV Plus Charge Card. Sincerely, Good Sam Club Team thanks. I was referencing the $1.99 price.
