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

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
