RE: How much oil do I really need?

I agree with Wolfe. I always fill my oil filter prior to putting it on the engine, but I fill ONLY through the smaller outer holes. Ed Headington

RE: Ceiling hanging a little - How do I fix it

I had this happen years ago in a 1992 Rockwood motorhome that we owned. I located the wooden ribs that should hold up the ceiling and at specified intervals I pushed in colored thumb tacks to match the color of the ceiling. Did a super job and looked very nice when it was done. Ed Headington

RE: Shopping at Lazydays?

I agree with krivanj's comments. Lazy Days is a great place to shop, no pressure, LOTS and LOTS of RV's to look at, all open and unlocked. We know a number of people who have had experiences like krivanj's and purchased motorhome from Lazy Days. Our own personal experience is that we can never reach an agreeable deal with them when we are ready to purchase. One time a number of years ago, we saved almost $20,000 by purchasing from another dealer. Since we live only 21 miles from Lazy Days, I wish we could reach an agreement with them!!!! BUT, they are definitely a great place to shop and see lots of RV's. Ed Headington

RE: Cold weather refrigerator question

I'm with MountainAir. We have traveled in the winter never having a problem with the refrigerator. We've been in morning temps down to the single digits. I agree I would not go plugging air vents, particularly if operating in the lp mode. Ed Headington

RE: 295/80R22.5 Latest Tire Prices

That is indeed good news that they make this size. As I said, a few years ago they didn't. The only question I had though is how do you determine the load capacity of the tires? When I followed the suggested link I couldn't see any numbers that I could correlate to numbers that I have seen to give load capacity. Ed Headington

RE: 295/80R22.5 Latest Tire Prices

When I checked a couple years ago, Hankook did not have a 295/80-22.5 tire.

RE: 15' Ventana 43' got enough grunt?

For what it is worth, we owned a Revolution LE for 9 years and 90,000 miles. It was a wonderful coach and we loved it. We decided we wanted to downsize though, and last spring bought a 34' Ventana LE motorhome. This unit is the bottom of the line for Newmar's diesel motorhomes. We have driven it a little over 6000 miles since we purchased it, and absolutely love it. One of the things that makes us so fond of it though, is the floorplan. Ed Headington

RE: 15' Ventana 43' got enough grunt?

I would suggest you buy the motorhome with the floorplan and amenities that you prefer. Both of these motorhomes are excellent choices. The Mountain Aire will certainly have some more upscale features, but they won't count for a lot if you don't like the floorplan. Ed Headington

RE: 15' Ventana 43' got enough grunt?

I believe if you research it, you'll see that the 2015 Ventana has the independent front suspension and the Newmar Comfort Drive. Ed Headington

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
