RE: freightliner service vs RV dealer

I agree with what others have said, I would have the Freightliner fix that problem. As a matter of fact, we had the exact same problem with our motorhome when we purchased it last spring. I did indeed take it to the Freightliner dealer and they had it fixed in no time at all. Ed Headington 2014 Newmar Ventana LE

RE: cold weather travel

I agree. When on the road, I check my tires EVERY morning and make sure they are the right pressure for THAT morning, whatever that temperature may be. Ed Headington

RE: Hello All. Advice on new/used purchase.

Safari was a good motorhome, a lot of unique design features like torsilastic suspension in lieu of air, stretched aluminum skin, etc. My biggest concern is that my recollection that in those days the Safari's typically did not have a very big load capacity. You might want to look at that aspect pretty carefully. Ed Headington

RE: 2015 Winnebago Forza 34T, 340 HP enough?

Last spring we went from a 40' motorhome with the CAT c-9, 400 hp engine to a 34' Newmar with the little 6.7 liter Cummins. Sure, on a long hill it is slower than the CAT was, but overall we are VERY pleased with the performance, to say nothing of the improved fuel economy!! Ed Headington

RE: Propane vs space heater

It just seems strange to me. We pay all this money for a beautiful motorhome with central heat, that also heats are basements to keep water and holding tanks warm, and then to save a few bucks we want to use a spot space heater, use blankets, etc., to keep warm. Me, when it gets cool and we need heat, we turned the propane furnace and set it at a temperature where we are nice and comfortable.

RE: I-25 Albuquerque, New Mexico to I-10

Did I miss something? If you are going west on I-10, getting off I-25 at Hatch is an excellent idea. I wouldn't go that way if I were going east on I-10 though!!

RE: Are there 2 different Monaco's?

For those of you who had the CAT C9 and had a bad experience, my heart goes out to you. However, we had a 2005 Revolution LE with the CAT C9 engine in it, and it was a fine engine. I really couldn't see any difference in dependability or reliability between that and the 4 Cummins engines I have had. We put 90,000 miles on the Revolution with next to no problems. Ed Headington

RE: update on PacBrake

A number of years ago a Pac Brake representative told me that if you are going to "not use" your RV for several months, you should definitely lube the mechanical assembly. However, he further said, if you use it regularly, you do not have to lubricate it. We run our motorhome at least once per month all year round, living in Florida, and have had Pac Brakes for over 18 years now and have never lubricated the Pac Brake. We have never had a problem. Some of our brakes have run over 90,000 miles. Ed Headington

RE: RV Direct vrs RV One

I agree, Bob. When we bought our motorhome from Tampa RV (where Bates used to be) I really didn't care. The few issues we had with the motorhome we got taken care of at the factory when we were up near there this summer. Then we KNEW we got it fixed right!!! Ed

RE: RV Direct vrs RV One

About 6 months ago we purchased a new motorhome from Tampa RV which I believe is one of the RV One stores. The sales process was fine, price was good, but don't go there if you want to get service. Granted the location was brand new and they admitted that their service left a lot to be desired, but I found the Service Manager there to have a very bad attitude. If he stays there, I question if they will ever have a good and reliable service department. Ed Headington

RE: Fogged up window repair

Big Katuna, if it makes you feel any better, it is not just SEGI windows. Suncoast Designer folks told me they see ALL makes of windows, including Prevosts (whichever windows they use). It is just that more SEGI windows were used than other makes. Another thing I like about Suncoast is that they do not evacuate the space between the two panes of glass. They inject an inert gas in there instead, which seems to me a much better solution to the problem. Ed Headington

RE: Tire Minder vs TST tire pressure monitoring system?

I check my tire pressures every day when we are on the road, so I LOVE a tire pressure monitoring system. In addition I like to have a system that screams at me if I have pressure loss in my toad. We have had the Tire Minder for several years now with excellent service both of the product and the company. Prior to that we had a Pressure Pro system, which likewise gave excellent service. I have read entries by many people who use the TST system and seem to like it too. As a result I would say that they are all 3, good systems. Ed Headington

RE: Cost of staying connected.......

We are closer to you, Tony and Karen as far as service goes. We use "over the air" TV or campground provided cable if available. We have two iPhones with 1GB of data for a total cost of $94/month. We use the internet whenever we are in a campground or area with wi-fi, which fortunately are getting to be more and more available. When at home we add FIOS with unlimited phone, TV and internet for an additional $90/month. Ed Headington

RE: PacBraKE

After I posted my response, Brett, I finally figured that was probably what happened. Sorry 'bout that. Ed

RE: Shine On Polish for your Rv

I can only say that I've used NuFinish for years and applied it right over decals. I never saw any problem from doing that. Ed Headington

RE: PacBraKE

Brett, didn't you say the same thing I said, except maybe a little more detailed???? Duh, or were you answering the original poster's question, not responding to my response?

RE: PacBraKE

I make an effort to use our pac brake every time I take the motorhome out to prevent it from seizing up. What I do is apply the Pac brake. You can feel the transmission downshift, and engine braking occurs. When the RPM gets down to 2000 rpm or a little higher, I turn the brake off. Hopefully the transmission won't upshift. But when I turn it off, I can feel the braking let up some as the Pac brake releases. Ed Headington

RE: Opinions on Fleetwood Revolution LE

I can only add to what others have said. We had a 2005 Revolution LE with the 400 hp CAT engine. It was an excellent coach. Gave us a wonderful 90,000 miles over 9 years with minimal problems. If the one you are looking at performs anywhere near like ours did you will have many years of happy travels from it. The only reason we traded ours last spring is that we are getting older and wanted a shorter coach. Ed Headington

RE: 20% Bio Fuel at Flying J/Pilot

Turtle n Peeps, I assume you are talking about a Cummins engine in a Dodge or Ram pickup truck?? My Cummins engine is in a motorhome, and the warranty is from Cummins, so if they tell me that if I follow their procedures all is okay, then I'm not jeopardizing my Cummins warranty.

RE: 20% Bio Fuel at Flying J/Pilot

Thank you!!!! That is much more encouraging than the message I got back from Cummins via email when I asked them the question. Since it looks like many of the stations in Florida are going to B20 bio-diesel, I was a tad concerned!!! Thanks again, Ed Headington
