RE: Scented bleach

It was some time ago, but I remember reading a label on a bottle of scented bleach that cautioned against using it for water treatment or in water systems.

RE: Messed up

I set up an orange cone in the spot I paid for and left to get some work done on the coach. Came back to find someone in my spot and my cone no where in sight. The jerk had my cone in his storage bin. Best thing about the whole experience was my wife was dealing with the guy rather than me as I wanted to rip him and his RV apart.

RE: In dash navigation worth the cost?

Have built in dash navigation unit in car. Usually use the same garman stand alone unit I use in the motor home all the time. It's just easier to take into the house or sit in the recliner in the motor home to program plan etc.

RE: Customer service lacking

I can feel for you. My experience with a new winnebago in 2001 was somewhat do similiar as yous only mine went on for 5 years until I got rid of iy. For 5 years I started and completed every trip I took at the dealer. The dealer was responsive , but sometimes had to wait for parts that took forever to arrivr. The dealer supported me to winnebago and winnebago picked my coach up in NM, took it back to the factory and returned it to me. Winnebago was still authorizing one year type warranty work at the 5 yesr point. I kept track of the mileage didicated to warranty. It was 8000 miles. I talked to every same model I found in RV parks, maybe 100, and no,one had problems like I did. I think sometimes they just produce a lemon.I solved my problem when I got a Newmar product. I feel for you, good luck.

RE: Looking for new vehicle- suggestions

Additional, Subaru is coming out with a new and larger vehicle, I think a 2018 model. Forgot the name but it is an SUV type vehicle with three rows of seats. Considered a 7 passenger vehicle. I've seen pictures of the interior and longer shot of exterior side view. Looked pretty nice.

RE: Looking for new vehicle- suggestions

Had some of the same issues. Didn't like climbing down to get into some and up to get out of cars. We checked out a new 2016 subaru outback. Did not have a dealer close but while on a trip and away from home and time on our hands we went and checked out the subaru. We were impressed and bought onr. Big doors, high clearance, great visibility, easy in and out, etc. Subaru cars are full time 4 wheel drive all the time. The outback has a good size 4 cylinder engine (6 avaliable) that gets 32/33 mpg. We love ours, check them out, you may also.

RE: Medicare???

As mentioned by a couple of folks you need to talk with your company retirement plan people. It all depends on what that contract says as to whether you continue with your current plan as 1st payer or you must have medicare as first payer and you company plan becomes second payer. Most plans (contracts) reguire medicare 1st and existing as 2nd. (HOPEFULLY YOUR EXISTING DOESN'T DROP OFF ENTIRELY) If it did then you would need to get and payfor a supplemental plan.

RE: Collapsible fresh water hose

Zero-G hose is guaranteed for 5 years. Save the receipt as you may need it. Just took mine back to Lowes after about a year. It was replaced right away with no problem. I was told that they replace a lot of them under warranty.

RE: Frank's Autoformer? Available?

I just punched "Frank's autoformer" in the computer and found them, also found a forum thread where most people said they were sorry they ever bought one. Also found a hughs autoformer, 50 amp, at Walmart for $509. Are you sure you need or want one? In 20 years of motor homing I've only found about 3 instances where I might have used one. Two of those were parks where I checked the voltage before I hooked up and I got my money back and left the park. The other case I had to run my generator in mid afternoon when everyone else turned on the acnd.

RE: Omaha to Salt Lake City - Interstate 80

Drove it about three years ago. Don't remember condition of highway at all, but don't think there are any steep mountain grades.

RE: Newmar class A

Taking off in our 2007 Kountry Star next week. Ocer the years we've had a few things come up. No big ones and far less than the 4 previous motor homes of SOB. Looked at many coaches at FMCA rally and Newmar is heads and shoulders above others at same level. It'd the only brand I want.as for used, just have to check on how it was maintained. Best in the world can be "damaged goods" if not taken care of.

RE: The tale of two toads

Just got one, 4 door sport unlimited. Took it for a 10 mile or so test "tow" for the first time yesterday. It just tucked in behind, tracked true, no wobble nothing. (just like it us supposed to be) previously towed a silverado 1500 crew cab and really looking forward to our first outing with the wrangler next week. I think it is a little lighter than the truck so anxious to see if any noticeable difference

RE: towing thru the mountains

Slow down and gear down at the top of the mountain and start down at the speed and in the gear that will maintain a safe speed all the way to the bottom. Do not let the coach get going too fast and end up burning up the service brakes trying to get the speed back down. Will take a few times to get some experience with downhill, so start out very consertively.

KOA campgrounds have three different classifications. They are "journey", "holliday", and"resort". Journey is a basic rv park for overnights and usually the least ecpensive. As the amenities go up in the higher classifications, so does the price. We stayed at quite a few journey parks last march and found the price pretty comparable to others in the area.

RE: Kayak mount for RV Ladder

I second Don's comment. I wouldn't want one bouncing up and down on the ladder on my motor home. I prop mine up when I get on the roof.

RE: Newbie researching Class A.

We've had several 35 foot motor homes and now have a 39 foot one. Cannot tell that 4 feet or so is back there. Drives the same . Suggest go for test drives in few of different sizes, but in the end it's all about the floor plan. You might like the extra 4ft or the smaller one might fit you just right.

RE: Best cell service providers, (areas covered)

Have had Verizon for about 20 years. Very few places we do not get coverage. We travel with folks who have AT&T and there are a few places we have service and they do not. Agree that #1 is verizon and #2 is AT&T. All the rest are way behind when it comes to coverage.

RE: FOUR Corners Monument

We were in the area so went there. Not what I had expected but glad we went. Talked to many of the vendors there and others are correct in that it is not a lot of poor folks. Talked to one older lady in a sales booth who was well traveled and and had a master's degree from NMSU. Talked to another very impressive anf infotmed young lady who talked about the tribes capabilities, how they were getting rid of contractor run operations and managing vast resources themselves. All in all not necessarily what I expected but sure am glad we stopped.

RE: Tucson / residential refrigerator

Freedom RV can do it. I've never had it done but seen others that have. I had them change out TV's including cabinet modifications etc. Great work, not cheap though. Another possible source is Cameron RV. He's an independent tech highly regarded by many, but I do not know anything about him and the job you have in mind.Cameron's pH is (520)490-7632

RE: Using portable Flo-jet macerater pump at home

I do the final dump and clean at one of several locations in the city before I park it beside our house and behind locked gates. I have several dump locations and never wait. Can choose between a dump station at chamber of commerce, one of 2 truck stops/gas ststions, the county fair grounds, or a fraternal organization of which I'm a member. If one looks around you may find lots of dump facilities that get very little use.
