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

RE: 20% Bio Fuel at Flying J/Pilot

How do you access Service Bulletin 3379001? I tried to access that bulletin on their website and was unsuccessful. Ed Headington

RE: TPMS Recommendations

Hmmmm, interesting. I have the Tire Minder, and my tires show tire pressure when the tires are stationary. How do I know?? Well, in the early morning, the pressures are lower, and later as the day warms up their indicated pressure rises. Do you suppose they don't report temperature changes as often when the tires are stationary???? Ed Headington

RE: Insurance Rate Doubled after Accident--Help!!

We have our motorhome insured with Progressive. A couple of years ago I had a minor accident which was my fault, and my insurance rates didn't go up at all. Ed Headington

RE: TPMS Recommendations

Understand I am a happy owner of the TireMinder system. However, having said that, if you do not get 5 years or so of free batteries for the transmitters, it appears to me that there is not a lot of difference in long term cost between replaceable batteries and "non replaceable" units. When I look at the cost of batteries over 5 years (which is how long the batteries in my Pressure-Pro transmitters lasted) it makes the cost of replacing the transmitters much more reasonable. In addition the transmitters are simpler, no threaded covers and gaskets. Anyway, just a thought. As I said I still like my Tire Minders and don't regret getting them, especially with the 5 years of free batteries and the superb customer service. Ed Headington

RE: Thinking of downsizing

We have had RV's since 1967, and motorhomes since 1981 when we bought a used GMC motorhome. For the past 14 years we have owned 2 40' motorhomes. LAst spring we downsized, not to a trailer, but to a 34' motorhome. We went from a 40' Revolution LE to a 34' Ventana LE. That is a significant change. We took a 7 week trip in it this summer with our two dogs and two cats, and loved it. I appreciate the increased mobility, easier maneuvering etc., and we both are amazed at the room inside. My wife didn't want to give up her 4 door Norcold refrigerator or her washer dryer, and she didn't have to, so she is happy. Anyway, only you two can decide if you are ready to downsize. With today's slideouts, smaller RV's seem much larger inside. When I was younger I could not understand why someone would have a 30' to 35' RV when they could have a 40' or even a 45' unit. As I get older though, I seriously wonder about my previous thinking. I can get in places and campgrounds that I wouldn't have even thought of with the bigger units. So there are merits whichever way you go. Ed Headington

RE: TPMS Recommendations

I have had the Tire Minder system on our motorhome and our toad for over 2 years now and have had excellent service out of the product, and excellent service from TireMinder, the manufacturer. From this experience I would certainly recommend it. Prior to the Tire Minder I had a Pressure Pro system for several years and had good experience with that too. I primarily changed to the Tire Minder because I wanted changeable batteries in the transmitters on the wheels. Ed Headington

RE: 20% Bio Fuel at Flying J/Pilot

That is strong evidence. Thank you, that eases my mind considerably. Cummins suggested using special filters, do you do that in your trucks, or do you just use the regular fleetgard filters (or other "standard" fuel filters - you can tell I have a Cummins) Ed Headington

RE: 20% Bio Fuel at Flying J/Pilot

Well, I have to admit that I thought you folks were making a mountain out of a molehill with this biodiesel question. So, I sent an email to Pilot/Flying J first to see if they were offering both biodiesel AND regular diesel. According to them, they are not. If they are selling biodiesel, that is all they are selling. Next I sent an email off to Cummins. They were not at all encouraging. First they said that if you burn biodiesel, you should cut your fuel filter change intervals by 50%. In other words, if it was 10,000 miles, it is now 5,000 miles etc. They also warned about damage to gaskets and seals and didn't offer any reasonable solution to that problem. SO---- I share your concern about the bio-diesel. I do not understand why the truckers are not screaming up a storm over this. It seems to me it is a legitimate concern and I know that now I am concerned!!!!! Ed Headington I apologize to all of you whom I thought were making mountains out of mole hills. And I am surprised this isn't located in the "Class A motorhome" forum.

RE: How do Class A rv's handle in snow?

We used to live in the northeast before moving to Florida. I definitely agree with what others have said. We always try to travel on dry roads, and heavy snows have caused us a little grief on the windshield. A typical motorhome handles much like a front wheel drive car in the snow. The majority of the weight is over the drive wheels, in this case, the rear wheels of the motorhome. The only thing is that when a 3-4000 pound car slides it is one thing, no where near as frightening as if a 30,000 pound motorhome starts to slide!!!! (which is why we normally try to drive on dry roads!!) Ed Headington

RE: 2015 Newmar Ventana MH Ordered!

Congratulations!!! You will like the Ventana. We purchased a 2013 Ventana LE and are very happy with it. We have had very few problems with it too. We visited the factory this summer and they took care of all our issues in less than a day of work. That tells you something!!! Best of luck with it! Ed Headington

RE: Fleetguard Fuel Filter Recall Information!

Whew! Glad we don't have one of those in our motorhome!! Ed Headington

RE: Price range of coaches and quality

We had a Monaco "semi-monocoque" body/chassis. The reason they called it that was that the "frame strength" was provided by a bridge type truss system in the walls of the body of the coach. While it didn't include all of the body, it did move the forces up into the lower 18" or so of the body. Personally, if a motorhome has 3-4 slides, to say nothing of a full slide on one side, I do not believe that the monocoque either full or "semi" is as good as the rail coach. By the time you put all of those cutouts into a body, it is next to impossible to get the strength that we think of with monocoque. Just my thoughts as a former strength of materials engineer. And I apologize because I dont' think I've spelled monocoque correctly. Ed Headington
