RE: Towing a Prius

Don't look for a Prius with standard transmission. They don't make them. Ed Headington

RE: Tire Sentry Pressure Monitoring system

I replaced a Pressure Pro system with the Tire Minder and it has been an excellent, and reliable system. In addition their customer service is fabulous. They have far exceeded my fondest expectations recently when I had a problem (probably caused by me) with our 3 year old system. Ed Headington

RE: Fridge on propane

I have had three or four 1200 Norcold refrigerators over the years in various motorhomes. I could hear the flame when it was on in all of them. It may be a small flame, but you can hear it plainly inside the motorhome at the refrigerator if you concentrate and listen for it. Ed Headington

RE: AGM vs Lead Acid

I agree that AGM batteries are expensive, but they sure are nice - never any corrosion in the battery compartment, never any need for adding water, and mine lasted close to twice as long as any floating acid battery I ever had. I just wish my new MH had them. I will probably eventually go back to them, costly or not. Ed Headington

RE: Horsepower be in a 1993 Cummins 5.9 in a Dolphin Moho

We had a 1992 Rockwood with a 160hp 5.9 liter Cummins. I thought the largest they offered in that block in 1992 and 1993 was 190 hp. I may be wrong though if they brought out the 230 hp engine in 1993. Ed Headington

RE: Flying J RV Islands

From what I have read in a number of states, including Florida where I live, all the diesel pumped at Pilot/Flying J stations is 20% bio diesel. I have a problem with this myself. Ed Headington

RE: Toad left in park

I agree with others who have said that we shouldn't have a holier than thou attitude. When I see where someone has made a big boo boo, I just say to myself, "there but for the grace of God, go I". After RVing for 48 years with a wide variety of trailers and motorhomes, there aren't many mess ups I haven't done at least once. I am VERY capable of messing up, whether I have a checklist or not.

RE: TPMS and Rubber Valve Stems

The manual for my Tire Minder says that because the transmitters are so light, they will work fine on rubber valve stems. Ed Headington

RE: TPO roof. How delicate ?

Sure, I like a fiberglass roof, but we've had motorhomes with rubber roofs for over 13 years and never had one problem with them. If the motorhome is what you like, I wouldn't let the TPO (which is actually better than rubber) roof stand in the way. Ed Headington

RE: Good Sam campground guide

My wife and I have used the Trailer Life CG directory for many years and have always thought it was the best, most complete, and most accurate of the various directories. However, we too were disappointed when we purchased our 2014 edition. It seems, as others have said, that most of the non-Good Sam parks no longer have a detailed description of the park, but merely and address and phone number. In previous editions that we have had, this was definitely not the case. We were very disappointed in our 2014 edition - it is definitely not as complete has it has been in the past. Ed Headington

RE: Tire Monitors

I have had Tire Minder TPMS for several years and have been very happy with it. When I purchased a new toad with aluminum valve stems, they were very helpful in upgrading my transmitters to aluminum. In addition, they provide free batteries for the transmitters for 5 years. Ed Headington

RE: American Tradition 1999 model

We had a 2000 Tradition with the 300hp ISC engine. Great motorhome. Gave us excellent service and we thoroughly enjoyed it. Put 90,000 miles on it. It does have a rubber roof, but never gave us any problems at all. Ours was equipped with the 4 door Norcold refrigerator and that also gave us no problems. If you get it, I wish you the best with it. it think you'll enjoy it. It is definitely a quality coach. Ed Headington

RE: Typical Size MH With Washer/Dryer

We have a 34' Newmar Ventane LE that has a washer/dryer combo. It will also accept a stacked washer and dryer if wanted. Ed Headington

RE: RV Residential Refrigerators

My point was that if someone wants a residential refrigerator, more power to them, go for it. But please don't think that it won't draw any more current when dry camped for a night or longer than an absorption refrigerator running on LP. The current consumption is probably, around 10 times as much. Personally my wife and I are happy with our Norcold 1200 RIM refrigerator. We occasionally camp with no electric hookup and like the Norcold under these conditions. We have a number of friends who have residential refrigerators in their motorhomes, and love them. They rarely, if ever, camp without electricity, and they enjoy the added volume and the lack of need for leveling the motorhome. I just get uncomfortable when I hear that residential refrigerators don't draw any more 12 volt power when running off batteries or solar panels than do the absorption refrigerators. Ed

RE: RV Residential Refrigerators

You guys all have me confused. If I accept your claim that your residential refrigerator averages about 1 amp. That is at 120 volts. Roughly, that means that at 12 volts, you will be drawing about 10 amps. That is the power consumption that is important if you are dry camped. I'm not sure what the Norcold draws of 12 volts when running on propane, but there is no doubt in my mind it is WAY less than 10 amps. Ed Headington

RE: Freightliner LBCU Issue?

Brett, I believe you can only do the Allison diagnostics on the 3000 series trans. I don't think it works on the 2000 series transmission. Is this right?? Ed Headington

RE: What happened to Chevy???

I know this ancient history, but actually there was a time that Chrysler was the only Class A chassis manufacturer. Back in the 1970s and until the first time Chrysler almost went bankrupt, the Chrysler chassis was the only one available for RV's. I believe the reason that they got out of the business was that part of the government aid at that time, they were directed to drop that line because it was too volatile. Then Chevrolet came along next with their chassis. Their big claim to fame was that they had an independent front suspension compared to Chrysler/Dodge's solid beam axle. After Chrysler left the scene, another manufacturer came along that offered a chassis much like an updated Chrysler chassis. It's claim to fame was that it had a solid beam axle!!!! (the name of this manufacturer slips my mind - getting old) Ed Headington

RE: Night Lights

Interesting. We have the bottom line Newmar diesel motorhome, and it came with little night lights at floor level between the bedroom and kitchen that can be turned on when wanted. Thoughtful feature that cost Newmar little, but certainly improved our satisfaction and enjoyment of our motorhome.

RE: Campgroungs Directory

I tried the Woodall's directory a couple of years ago and was very disappointed. Many of the directions to the campgrounds were wrong. One CG owner told me "I've told them again and again their directions are wrong, and they won't change them". I have used the Good Sam/Trailer Life directory for years. The last one I got though (2014, I think) disappointed me. It seems there are an awful lot of RV parks that are not Good Sam Parks, that have no write-up in them. All they have is the name, an address, and a phone number. They don't even give the number and size of the sites. Seems there are a lot more of those than there used to be. Having said all that, though, I still think the Good Sam/Trailer Life directory is the best available. Ed Headington

RE: Furnace

If your stove works okay, then I do not believe that you have a propane problem. You have a furnace problem. Sounds like you have an intermittent problem where the furnace does not ignite. In my experience that is most often a bad control board in the furnace. The problem with all of the hot air furnaces we have had is that if the furnace does not ignite, the fan just continues to run until either you turn it off, or if you aren't plugged into power, your battery runs down. From what you have reported that is my guess as to why the furnace is running continuously. Ed Headington
