RE: Missing bolt on rear suspension on new Class A

yes, I was going to post that this has been reported before, glad you found it! keep an eye on those bolts and while you are at it, get the poly bushings, the original ford bushings on my 09 disintegrated. There is a great thread on the bushings somewhere and a member supplys them for a reasonable price.

yeah, come to think of it, I'll pull out the old paper map and read it while driving......no one ever did that......or change the radio station.......or get a burger at the drive thru.....or put their sun glasses on.........nevermind.....

RE: 2018 jeep compass

look at the Cherokee Trailhawk, it is very comfortable and has a locker for 4x4, tows 4 down. I have a 2014, probably towed 30,000 miles, and been on some awesome mountain rides in Colorado. Definately not as capable as a Rubicon, but it goes everywhere I want to go.

RE: Onan Generaor - 10 yr old

sounds like the automatic choke to me to, as they get older they can stick and take a bit longer to function.

RE: Why are there so few Fr.E.D.?

If I redline my ford v10 up a hill it's noisy, if I back it off a gear or two up hill it's not very noisy. Since I'm not always going up hill and not in a hurry.....it's not to noisy.

RE: Rte 50 in Colorado

check road conditions! one year there was an accident on 50 and we were routed up 9 to Hartsel no fun!

RE: Rte 50 in Colorado

50 is a bit winding along the river and you will go over Monarch pass which will be slow, but you should be fine. 24 to BV is another option but it's about the same. Check conditions ahead and make sure to accidents or snow chains required

RE: Door entrance lock with deadbolt

My advice is to replace it before the internal mechanism fails, which will require you to drill the lock assembly out. I had to do this on my old rig, and it was something of a PITA. Fortunately, America's Funniest Home Videos was not there to watch me crawling in through the driver's door that had been turned as a seat... been there, done that! When that spring loaded pot metal bolt breaks, it's like cracking a safe! And as you mention, the gymnastics involved in entering the rv via open window

RE: Just not livin right I guess..

It's been nothing less than perfect to 25 years! well, there was the sandstorm/haboob on highway 10 west to California and, the tornado in kansas and, the squall off lake Dardanelle that knocked over the tree next to us and, the weather alert for tornado that said "seek shelter in the basement" and..........but I only remember the GOOD TIMES!

RE: Is everyone ready for what may be the next Hurricane to hit?

Baby sister (age 50) and her husband left at 4:15 AM eastern time this morning from Boca Raton..... sloooooow going she says on the Turn Pike, after an hour they jumped on highway 98 heading northwest and will eventually make it to TN. Safe travels, MM. as of yesterday, I think 98-19-10 west was fastest way out of harms way

RE: Small Class A

We have a 2010 Windsport 32v (32'). It had some initial problems that were all taken care of and then we've had 7 years of good service. Look for. 30'ish gasser with 22.5" tires, those will probably have more storage in basement and a few pass thru's. We have 2 slides and for two people, it feels massive, we spend as much as 5 months per year and never feel cramped. Milage 6-7 but I do go 70 if laws allow. I have many hobbies and have never felt I had to leave something at home. Just about any RV you buy today requires planning and prudance on the buyers part, a thorough check out (I spent two days in mine before I bought and didn't sign till all was right), then local trips close to home to get any more bugs out near the dealer). Anyway, don't want to hijack your thread with all that! Good luck, I'm sure something is out ther that you will be happy with!

RE: Who's in charge?

sounds to me like a loose wire or dirty contact. try cleaning and tightening all your main 12v wires on chassis and house batteries and any connections in between ( like in the chassis ground and the main wires to the slide out driver)

RE: Possible frame rail, hitch receiver issue..

I can see that if backing up and scraping had hit a obstruction or hole, that could cause a downward bending on the frame until it broke free, I think you solved it there good luck with repairs

RE: Possible frame rail, hitch receiver issue..

good point!
roam1 07/27/17 10:27am Class A Motorhomes
RE: Possible frame rail, hitch receiver issue..

since it looks like it was bent down , my guess is it was overloaded tounge weight. If you only row 4 down, I doubt you caused this. Bottoming out on a dip in the road would cause it to bend up so I doubt you caused this. Is it possible it was damaged before you purchased?
