RE: Do all Class A gas MHs have generators in the back?

Many gas A's have genny midship
roam1 10/29/14 03:30pm Class A Motorhomes

DW and I spend 3-5 months a year in our 32' A like OP plans to. We've had an 18' C, 28' C, and now a 32' A (22000#) What I noticed going from the C to A: Cab space in A is usable so going from 28'C to 32'A we gained about 9-10' interior space, not just the additional 4' A has pass through garage and holds so much more 22.5" tires are expensive but carry a LOT of stuff! Front window is panorama on the A versus covered up and lower on C If I were looking at 32' A vs C, would not consider C again. hope that helps we tow less than 5000# so super C is not necessary

RE: Tire Inflation Question

if I were in the OP situation I would run the pressure for the axles max weight rating if I "assumed" I didn't overload, maybe add 5# to that

RE: Tough decision - Stressed out

We had a similar situation with a second home we only used 4months a year. Between cost of capital and maintenance, it was $40k /year or $10k/month we used it. Sold it, invested the $$$, and we now rent. No stress! Add up your annual maintenance, insurance,what you would get from a safe 10 year CD, and loss of equity per year. (Not to mention loss of sleep and stress you have). Use that to rent! My recommendation based on listening, sell and rent! (A rv, trailer, cabin, or motel) you have many stress free options!) But in the end, do what you want, there is no wrong answer!

RE: disadvantage of having MoHo parked in driveway.

In 22 years of parking my MH at my residence, never had a problem. Sorry the OP did. Locking gas cap and neighbor hood watch may help!

RE: Replace 235/80R 22.5 XRV Tires

235/80R22.5 is a Michelin size. Equivalent size is 245/75R22.5, however, the 275/70R22.5 is also close. Look at Load Rating, diameter, revolutions per mile and minimum dual spacing as well as rim size. You can compare various sizes here: Tire Size Calculator Dual spacing is determined by rim offset, if you measure between the centerline of each of the tires it will give you the dual spacing. (Extend the dashed lines to the tread to see the offset) HDS is half Dual Spacing or rim offset... http://www.mullins.com.au/Images/ttw-rk-spacingdisc.gif Another factor is wheel well clearance... Thanks hooligan! Do you have a tire dealer you like in Pensacola area for 22.5 tires? We are headed that way and will need tires soon. Would be great if I could arrange by phone and have them ready!

Replace 235/80R 22.5 XRV Tires

It's time to replace my Michelin 235/80R 22.5 tires on 2009 F53 chassis Thor Windsport I hear the Michelins may not be available. Since the 235/80 seems to be unique to Michelin, I may need to change sizes. I have read a bunch of posts and looked at the links on comparing tire sizes. My question is, how do you know a slightly wider tire will fit on the 22.5 x 7.5 wheel and not cause rubbing problems on the dual axle? I see posts where folks run a wider tire but I can't seem to find anything in the tire guides that specify wheel/rim width approved sizes. Thanks!

RE: So whats in your basement. Cabinet organization ideas.

My best tip for basement organization is make a map on paper and log everything you put into it and where. It will save many hours of searching for something you know you put in the basement! Don't ask me how I know..........

RE: Small Class A with Large FW tank

Another option is to add a flexible fresh tank. My 32 thor Windsport carries 60 gal FW I added a 40 gal flexible tank from west marine Fits easily in the forward pass through basement Just an option.......

RE: Are my turn signals invisible?

Happens to me all the time Seems to be directly proportional to how close to a city you are Closer to a city, closer the gap and no one lets you in I hit turn signal and if ignored, slowly move over You wonder why trucks change lanes so aggressively, no one lets them in The DW unfortunately is not so aggressive and now refuses to drive in cities, I don't blame her.....

RE: Cobwebs!

What really bugs me is when I crawl under my rig to check something and find the "cobweb maker" crawling on me! :E

RE: Wind question

When I can't keep it between the lines, my awning is whacking the safety stop, or my DW eyes pop out and she goes silent!

RE: Conflicting requirements for towing 2014 Jeep Cherokee

What ever you do, make sure the parking brake did not auto engage while you were hooking up and going to neutral. Mine did once and I noticed the wheels would not roll. There are lots of reasons a it will auto engage, understand them!

RE: Conflicting requirements for towing 2014 Jeep Cherokee

I drive my Trailhawk to MH, put in park, hook up tow bar, put xfer case in Neutral per the manual, disengage electric parking brake, put tranny in drive and confirm it does not move, if so, move tranny to park and release the electric parking brake ( because it automatically engages when you put tranny in park), remove key. When I first start the motorhome, I put it in drive and see if it will roll without the accelerator, if so and toad wheels are rolling and turning I smile and GO!

RE: Mountain driving and towing with a gas class A

I have driven over just about every paved mountain pass in CO. While my 09 Ford 22000# rig and 4000# toad can make it just fine and slow, I prefer to unhook and let the DW follow. Only takes 5 min on each side and doesn't push the vehicles so hard. Adds 10 minutes per pass to my drive and a whole lot of peace of mind. So I get there 10-20 minutes behind you, you will be set up and greet me with a cocktail!
