RE: NHTSA& EPA want to limit speedof vehicles over 26,000 lbs

They would have to be governed to not exceed a given speed. Setting a limit would not work. First time I traveled I-10 from El Paso TX to San Antonio with a speed limit of 80 mph I was surprised by the number of cops and the number of vehicles they had stopped. Trucks included.

RE: Overnight On I-25

Not sure what kind of stop you have in mind but there is one rest stop between raton and Las Vegas where overnight parking is permited. If wanting RV hook ups we like the Whittington center (NRA). They have two RV parks open to the public. They are about 4 miles west of raton, nm.There is a KOA off i25 at Las vegas. Casino rv park between Santa Fe and Albquerque. In addition to these there are probably 100 more.

RE: Beach Trip

I nearly buried my car on Padre island once. Fortunately it was a vw bug and my buddy and I lifted it up and out of the sand and back to the road. Be careful!

RE: Newmar Ventana

He is "picking on it" as he does not like the rear radiator and would instead choose the DSDP as it has a rear radiator.

RE: Tow Bar connecting

Yes. That's probably the only way you will get it ti lock in plsce. I hook up then put my towed truck into reverse and back up until the arms are locked. I then prepare the truck for towing. Sometimes I do not get both arms of the tow bar to lock. Then, unless everything is heading downhill I'll just drive the motor home forward until the other arm locks up.

RE: Replace or Reupholster

Suggest you shop both and see. We did that with sticks and bricks furniture. Cost was about the same so decided that all new was better than some new. I would guess when it comes to RV furniture reupholstering might be better. Better because less money,better padding, and perhaps better fabric than you'll get with new RV furniture.

RE: Electric Awning

DC&MC I think have the correct answer. It the awning comes in properly when a battery is hooked directly to the motor, there is an electrical problem with the wiring somewhere. I had same problem. I was told it could be that the wire size was too small. The awning manufacturer rep told me Newmar put in large enough wire so look for the problem in a connection or a splice. Found a bad splice in a box behind passenger seat where awning, patio light, and a 12 volt outlet were wired. A new splice and problem solved. Unfortunately it was solved after Newmar sold me a new awning motor and controller that was not needed and did not solve the problem. The problem was intermittent and only occurred when the sun shined on and heated up the exterior of the wall where the electrical box was located. Look for faulty wiring or a wire size is too small.

RE: Another Motorhome??

I have a Newmar and were I looking for another it would be a Newmar. I have had 3 Winnebagos in the past, two gas models which were OK and 1 diesel that was a five year nightmare. No question in my mind.

RE: New to this. Best weather in winter??? Help?

My experience is that the warmest consistent winter weather is in yuma AZ area. I lived in Florida for three years and it is great compared to winter weather where you are now. I grew up in northern Illinois so I understand that. I spent one winter in the Texas Rio Grand Valley. Again warmer than the north but had cool days, wet and windy days, etc. Not like the southwest. Met a couple several years ago from northeast. They went to Florida, said it was cold, moved west to rgv, said it was cold, moved west to southern NM and said that was first time they had been warm.I now live in southern NM and winters here are mild, however can have cold snaps. Yuma area is best at having consistently warm weather. I have tried all of the areas and this is my exprrience.

RE: paint

If you have a paint number, take it to any automotive paint Store and they should be able to match it. I did that with a number on a winnebago. They mixed a small amount and the name of the color was identified as "winnebago xxxxxx". Seemed to be an ordinary thing to the guy in the store.

RE: Insurance Question when the MH is upsidedown on the loan

Talk to your insurance person about agreed amount insurance.foe example if your rv is worth 90k and you owe 100 ask about insuring it for the 100k. It will cost more than actual cash value (90k) but less than the current amount based on what you paid for the rv. My agent said I could not do this. I called the insurance company direct and they said I could. After a lot of dancing around the agent said they were mistaken. Since I had already paid direct and had the policy in hand they had no other choice. Not are why I had been told for two years that I could not do this but I took Mr $500 a year reduction and went on down the road. All I cared about was covering the balance owed on the loan.

RE: DP going up and down mountains

Go down the hill at a speed your engine or exhaust brake will maintain a constant speed-not speeding up or slow in down.. If you have an engine or jake brake you can slow down faster than you can with an exhaust brake. It is best to start down at that speed rather than start down too fast and have to use the service brakes to slow down to that speed. Saw one coach that burned to the ground because the brakes got hot burned and then burned the coach down. Experience is about the only thing that will tell you what that speed is. Until you get the experience go slower rather than faster. The reason for slower is because the engine will upshift with no input from you to keep from over reving if it gets going too fast. Trying to slow down a runaway coach is where the damage, including ruining brakes and fire comes in.

RE: 09 paint not right

Suggest you walk away. If it is a paint problem that is one thing and with money can be fixed. If it is a problem with what is called "sidewall checking" or "sidewall etching" that is a problem with the fiberglass siding material and cannot be permanently fixed short of replacing the material. Any kind of "fixing" or painting is temporary and the condiyion will reoccur. Many manufactures had the problem and my understanding from Newmar was that the last year of their problems were in 2008. I had it and my siding as as well as many other Newmar coaches have had the material replaced.

RE: Passport America and its ilk

Pretty hard to call them "gotcha's" if one stays informed. Have been a member for years and use then when possible and they have always paid for themselves.

RE: Solution for damage from flat tires - thoughts?

Would be extremely tough to mitigate damage caused by a steel belted tire whipping around at the speed of (don't know but very fast) and with a tremendous force. I kind of thing the tire, especially a steel belted, one would win.

RE: Roofers estimate

If the price quoted was per square then he is due the cost for the number of squares he installed. And any excess are his. If you want them then you need to pay for the excess material, but pay only material cost rather than the per square installed price. (He did not install and therefor had no expense) if the price was lump sum based on his estimate of number of squares then any excess should be his. As for the senior discount I would just ask if the final cost took into consideration the senior discount. Of course his answer will be "yes". Should have been determined up front.
