RE: Need opinions, anyone with experience?

We too use our iPhones. However, years ago (pre iPhone days) we did have a set of the small hand held radios and they worked really well when used for short distance. Now they just stay in the drawer in the mh. Batteries are probably shot by now. ron

RE: Setting up RV to use water pump instead of Park Supply

After going through this, the simple answer is: yes, you can leave the water pump on all the time. It only runs when you run the water. When dry camping we never turn the pump off. This works fine until you have a loose connection or a hose break when you are out exploring the countryside. You'll come back to a flooded rv. Not good. :E Ron

RE: Setting up RV to use water pump instead of Park Supply

A friend of ours has that feature in their Dynasty....however, after having our first coach flooded once (my error), we now fill the tank with water and use the pump.....and we NEVER leave the pump on in case of a leak when we are away from the coach or sleeping. There was another post several months ago where a brand new Newmar Essex flooded going down the highway when the new owner left the pump on and a line or connection broke.

RE: Internet use

Yes, libraries are safe. Just remember to check the url for https if you are doing anything requiring security and privacy. I will also use starbucks, McDonald's, and other places with free wifi.455 Ron

RE: Wanting to spend some money

When we had our TT, the #1 item that served us the best was an electric tongue jack...#2 was a Sherline tongue scale...#3 was a TPMS...#4 was getting rid of the Goodyear Marathons and replacing them with Maxxis.....#5 was selling the Dual Cam on eBay and buying a hensley arrow. Ron

RE: Grapevine/Tehachapi

I would wait also. I understand that both 395 and 14 are closed to all traffic larger than an auto. Wait a day, the storm will pass. Ron

RE: Macerator pumps--how to spot one?

I think the reason you see so few for sale adds mentioning macerator pumps is because they're not very common. I personally never met any one using one. I don't think you have to worry about it too much, but if a MH you bought did come with one, just remove it. Bill I'm with Bill... if you find a coach you like and it happens to have a macerator...just remove the darn thing. No big deal and you shouldn't base your choice on whether or not the coach has one. But just look in the wet bay, if it has a small drain hose (1 inch or so), it has a macerator. Ron

RE: Florida Toll Road Bills

Toll roads? What are toll roads? Here in the west we call roads "free" ways. Ron

RE: HWH and slides

Sure sounds like low battery power. A friend of mine had this exact problem a couple of weeks ago. Replaced his batteries with new ones, and all slide problems disappeared. Ron

RE: RV insurance jumped

Loyalty means nothing to insurance companies. As soon as my insurance jumps a significant amount, I will immediately start researching for another company. In my 50 years of being an auto (of one type or another) owner, I probably have not had more than five claims.....so that's thousands and thousands of $$ I've paid out for premiums for those few claims. Who do you think is ahead in this game? Based upon those 50 years, the odds of me having to request another claim is very remote so I always shop for the absolute minimum cost to me, and will do so every year if necessary. So my advice to you is shop around and submit requests for price from at least 5 to 10 companies. Keep a record of those request so that you can do it again next year. Ron

Using the newest or active topics, you can pick and choose whatever you wish to look at. If the post has more than one page, I typically pass over it and go on to another. Since I've experienced several different types of RVs, I feel that my experience can help others who are having the same problems I did or learn from replies of others who have a better solution than I do.

You can read them all if you use the "Newest", "Active", or "Popular" links at the top... Exactly! I don't see a problem here. Ron

RE: Some of the little things you like/dislike about your DP?

The one thing I really, really dislike about our coach is the cheap a$$ Lippert entry steps...pure junk. Ron

RE: Loose chairs

I tie the legs of our dining chairs together with Velcro straps and they stay pretty much in one place. Our large recliner never moves and we don't do anything with it except rotate if fore and aft to provide additional walk space when the slides are in. I've had a couple of panic stops and haven't noticed any problem with any of the chairs. Ron

RE: Class A to 26' TT

Congratulation on your new TT. I think the easy towing is due more to pulling with a F-350 diesel than anything else. Of course with the trailer being empty, could have a little to do with it too. Speaking as a previous TT owner, watch how you load the trailer to insure a correct balance. Also, keep in mind those ST tires on the trailer are only rated for 65mph. I think I would still invest in a quality WD/Sway control system. When we got our first MH, I really wanted to keep our TT just for camping as I knew the MH would be too big for most campgrounds. Unfortunately, I let my DW talk me into selling it.:( Ron

RE: Generator Advise

When we had our trailer, it had a single 13K AC and a microwave oven. I purchased an EU2000 Honda, and it had difficulty starting the AC, but would handle the microwave ok. So if you will have "more" 120vac appliances than that, I would go with either dual EU2000 units or a single Eu3000 unit. Please stay away from those contractor type generators you find at Home Depot/Lowes as they are so loud they'll cause your neighbors to get a mite upset. Ron PS...By the way, you're asking for "advice" (a noun), but some one can "advise" (verb) you on what to get. These are often misused along with break and brake, to and too, and lose and loose. I'm sure there are plenty others...

RE: RV Security system ?

I think I would find a more secure campground or rv park. Ron

RE: Oil Prices Nosedive: Good News at the Pump

Good news at the pump, but for sure not on the stock exchange. Another big dip yesterday and probably today. Looks like it's time bail to change my IRA to low risk. 2.53/gal here yesterday. Ron

RE: Way too much fun in Quartzite

We too always stay at Rice Ranch, but limit ourselves to one visit every four or five years. We have found that if you've seen/gone once, it's not gonna be much different the next time. Typically we go when we are in need of maintenance on the coach, generator, or tow bar. Works for us. Ron

RE: All Electric Motorhomes

I suspect a lot of it is market differentiation. From a sheer practical sense the difference between an all electric and one that only has a gas cook-top and, perhaps, a gas/electric fridge is minimal. Marketing is what drives much of coach design and when something "innovative" resonates with the consumers for whatever reason that drives more of the same. MH design is not immune to current fads and the associated bragging rights. Have you ever seen the Marathon (I believe) that tried the slide out patio...that one didn't take off but if it had you would see others jump on the bandwagon practical or not. The coach that you are thinking about is the Country Coach Veranda. Personally, I though the only real purpose for it would be if you were handicapped or had a handicapped passenger. They could just roll out to the Veranda and enjoy the weather without having to climb steps, etc. The 'Veranda' took up the space for a slide which narrowed the interior. If it were raining, the Veranda would be a big mess. Also, leaves and debris would need to be kept away as the floor of the Veranda mashes up against the sliding door. You would want that area as clean as possible. MM. And another reason they "didn't take off" is due to the fact that Country Coach went out of business that very same year. Ron
