RE: Overwhelmed with choices of motorhomes

Have you ever seen on television the program called ICE TRUCKERS? Now you know that those truckers do not use gasoline engines on those big rigs hauling equipment way up into the coldest parts of Alaska. They are all diesel my friend. So if you like a gasoline motorhome, that is fine with me. But lets keep the posting believable. Diesel engines have always operated in the coldest parts of the world. Sometimes you have to add additives to the diesel fuel, but that is having knowledge as to what to do in those cold places. That's funny you mention that show and about diesels in cold weather, they had a episode where a truck was not left running and it would not start because the driver forgot and shut it off.. Diesels are good for heavy loads and have lots of torque but don't shut them off in very cold weather or you will be walking. Your talking about temps in the -50* that would be some nice camping.

RE: Over Priced Used Motorhomes.

Or maybe the moderator removed once already. Guess someone never read the forum rules :R You may not use the Open Roads Forum for "For Sale" or "Wanted" posts. Solicitations by private/public agencies, or individuals for any cause are also not allowed.

RE: Over Priced Used Motorhomes.

Hello to all. I'm a first time poster here. I joined to get into a like minded group. Presently looking for a used dp and kinda relieved to hear the comments. I thought I was the only one thinking sellers are trying to recoup their new sale price. I live in Las Vegas which has tons of rvs owner/ dealers. My budget is low but I know I'll be hitting the roads asap. My plan is full time all the way, splitting my year half in western Canada and the balance in western US. A question about used mh. How are older units received in most rv parks? Let's say the obvious 80`s style Allegros or Fleetwoods. Are they welcomed the same or is there a class distinction like neighborhoods? Really curious about that. Looking forward to hear anyone's response. Joy Welcome to the forum. Lots of good info here. You should have no problem finding a nice used unit in or around the area were you live.

RE: Over Priced Used Motorhomes.

After looking at dozens of motorhomes over the course of a couple of years there's is a ton of junk out there. You can go broke flying out from here to there looking at coaches. Thanks to the members on this site and irv2 that happened to be or live in the area of some of the coaches I was interisted in and took a quick look at them for me and gave their opinions. When I saw the coach that I did purchase I didn't mind spending a few grand more for it just because of the condition it was in. As long as your happy with the purchase who cares.

RE: Anyone has taken their turbo apart to clean it? 2003 Cummins

I have taken mine off my ford 7.3 to install a aftermarket compressor wheel. As far as cleaning it there should be nothing to clean. Your sucking in clean air through your air cleaner. Diesels don't like to injest dust and dirt and if they do your looking at that 20k repair bill.

RE: Hankook tire inflation question

Last year I replaced 6 Michelin tires with 6 Hankook 225/70R19.5. I called Hankook and they advised that I should use the same tire pressure that I had been using in the Michelins which was (70 #) and based on my verified MH weight. The Michelin tread had worn quite well for the 50,000 miles that I had run them and the ride is about the same now. Dave. http://i.imgur.com/11fLntYl.jpg "border=0" http://bit.ly/1CIRlV8

RE: New tires

I know a lot of folks here will disagree with me, I put 2 Samsons on the steer axle. My rear tires still good with no sidewall cracks or signs of wear even though they are 7 years old and about 40,000 miles on them. I am ultra conservative. Can you tell? :) Bought them from a reputable truck tire store. I just purchased my new/used Moho and it has 6 Samson's on it. We just put on 2k miles on it no problem with the tires at all.

RE: Country Coach Allure 2006 questions

Country Coach have sent me a brochure for 2007 same model with the list of changes (since 2006) attached and there is PTO. So, now the question is how to check it is dry or wet? Just look and see how many hoses go to the pto. 1= bad 2=good This is a good read

RE: Country Coach Allure 2006 questions

I think the owner is wrong if he says it does not have a PTO. It was mounted on the transmission since 2005. Here is the build sheet for my chassis. Line #14 pto. Chassis is a 1997 http://i.imgur.com/xNLOFXhl.jpg

RE: Lighting / Ambience / Outside / Inside / Upgrades / Awning

I do have a lot of rope lights on the inside. I do not think I need anything else on the inside. X2 I think the inside is done.

RE: Country Coach Allure 2006 questions

Also post your question on the Country Coach Yahoo Group. Many CC owners there to answer your questions. We have an '04 Allure and love it! I wish they would change the format on yahoo. I dont use it just for that reason.

RE: Country Coach Allure 2006 questions

With all the dry PTO problems I have read about I would say good. I would look at the paint real good. Especially the darker colors for checking. This is with any manufacture around that year.
