RE: What do you want in a long term RV site?

Some good suggestions and ones I think are good are simple.no covers etc,but the trees. Don't plant trees on the corners of any pull through spts. Not on the corner where it scs****s entering and not where it will s****e pulling out.if plant trees put them centered on yhe middle of the lot half when in and half way out. Pay attention to type trees. Some get big and will cause problems as they mature .

RE: Matching Receiver and Base Plate Height Using Drop Receiver

Ideal ie even / both the same height. Think you are correct tow vehicle connection should never be above the receiver on the coach and I believe two inches or so above is ok. You will get answers all over the subject with some saying plus or minus xx inches is ok. Best thing to do is call blue ox and follow there guidance. That what I have always done and gotten different answers than people post here. I think what I said above is what blue ox told me BUT, call them and go with their guidance.

Is there romm on top of the end cap for airtabs? I thought the tabs are supposed to go on the "edge" of the roof.

RE: Turn in motorhome back to bank

I suggest that whatever you do you do it ASAP. I had cousin who passed. His wife wanted to sell their coach. They owed $100K. Coach was worth $90K. "Could not afford" the $10K difference. She kept the coach, paid monthly payments of $1000 for the next 70 months plus tires and batteries ETC, then sold it for $20 less than she owed. Do the math, paid $70K over the 70 months plus another $20K at time of sale equals $90K rather than $10K. Then I had a neighbor do the exact same thing, exact same circumstances. Just was a little less money but hung onto 5th wheel for three years and spent more money hanging on than dumping It and paying the difference. "BEG BORROW OR STEAL THE MONEY AND MAKE IT GO AWAY".

RE: Mail Hold--What do you do?

2gypsies has the suggestion. That is essentially what we do EXCEPT, it gets a little harry around tax time and the IRS notifies you, by mail, of the audit, or the district or federal court sends you a notice for jury duty. We sometimes have a "mail box" store pick up our mail periodically, sort through and forward some of the first class and hold the rest. I have been caught by both the examples I ljsted. Always came out OK but made my heart skip a few beats when I was a no show for those two events.

RE: Mail Hold--What do you do?

I have not done this but several people I know have stopped their mail for 30 days, then sent in another card to hold it for another 30 days. They were told the card / hold request was only good for 30 days at a time so they sent in the second card. Worked for them.

RE: So does the auto retract awning really work!

Mine retracts when someone breaths at it. It cannot be used unless it is turned off. I used to have one that Newmar replaced under warranty that had an adjustment for wind speed. The new one apparently has no adjustment, at least i cannot find it and it is not like the original. I did not realize it until long after it was caged out. Right now if anything happens to my awning I am not sure I would ever replace it.

RE: Banking

I believe once an automatic pay method is set up and established it is the company oy the entity that you owe the money to that makes the draw on you savings or checking account. If i am correct and i rhink i am, you cannot be late. And yes I think many transactions do not show up on week ends. I have been watching my auto pay accounts and bank accounts as I just changed banks.

RE: New Guy with 1990 Fleetwood Southwind

Check out Allstars RV which is in a small town (village?) South of Denver on 85 in louviers. Had work done there some years ago and was very pleased. They did chassis work but am not sure to the extent

RE: Dometic Duo Them air conditioner

Sounds like coils are freezing up. Compressor shuts off and when thaws out, kicks back in. One of my two does same periodically and I'm not sure what to do to"fix".

RE: Leaking AC unit

Think the above two suggestions are right on. However should the gasket already be squeezed tight with no room left to tighten you would need new gaskets.

RE: Big FMCA Rally Advice

Make reservations to get into any of the parking spots you mentioned or you will have no choice other than your #2. Off site RV parking may be sparse as well. We prefer electric spot if it the electricity permanently distributed under ground rather than temporary distribution above ground and generated by large generatores setting around the parking area. AND especially should you happen ti be parked by a big generator that runs all night. We leave our 4 legged friend in coach depending on weather and power availability. If hot and no power no. Find other arrangements.

RE: RV Washing Machine

If th coach does not already have a washer and if it is plumber for a washer you will not have much of a choice as to where it s going to goIf not plumber then there is ususally a location thet would have been where the washer was supposed to go. Again not much of a choice. If npne of the above every floor plan is different so now you are knid of on your own. Another decision to make assuming you have to have a washer is do you want a combination washer dryer or stacked unit. Stacked unit will take more space than a combination. As for desireability: DW says washer or no motor home. Now that we have a stacked unit in our current coach it would have to be same again. no combination unit. I for one would not mind spending some time each week in a laundry, but wife is driving this subject.

RE: Bathtub Refinishing

Check with a local plumbing supply house or other related facility to see if they are aware of anyone who does gel coat repair. I had the entire shower pan in my sticks and bricks repaired and recoated by just such a find. Had the gel coat of an RV repaired by a fiber glass repair guy from the boat repair business.

RE: Nexus RV

From what I have read the nexus Bentley does have a window in the bed room. It is behind the bed head board. If is also the escape from the bedroom area. One can put the headboard up and let light in or close and outside light is gone. I think that is a great idea and would love to have that set up rather than the conventional windows we have in our Kountry Star.

RE: A Good Find???

2000 ford v-10 was 275 HP and was increased a year or two later to 310 which was better. That v-10 also had a problem with the number of threads on the plugs that could blow out of engine if not changed out / torqued exactly correct. Neither of those things would necessarily be a deal killer if all else is in good shape. I had a winnebago with that engine and towing into the wind or going over a rail road overpass would cause the transmission to down shift a lot.

RE: Checking amount of Ball Joint wear (DP Spartan)

You will get the same tire wear on the out side of the front passenger side if in need of a front end allignment. I was told same by an individual that had same wear. He had front end aligned several times with no corrction. That's when he found many places do not know how to do the allignment on a Spartan chassis. He found a place that checked with Spartan, aligned it correctly and problem solved. I had the same tire wear and asked and found someone who knew how to align the Spartan and it drove better and odd tire wear was also gone. The correct procedure has to do with checking ride height before proceeding with anything else but beyond that I am in the dark. It is well worth checking before you pay for new ball joints.
