RE: Chassis

The best solution is to test drive one of each. Your opinion is what really matters. You can have coaches that are on the same suspension but vary in weight and have different shocks tires etc. It all comes into play.

RE: Filiter Minder Pegs in Red

Try the Cummins forum here on IRV. Better yet phone Cummins and they will tell you if that is adequate.

RE: Leaving seat while driving

Hey Don your second and third sentence should have something in between them. Just kidding! Years back before we bought our coach we were looking at a privately owned DP and the lady was telling us that her and the kids would have showers while driving down the road. Not for me or anyone in my coach!! My wife will get up for potty breaks or to get something from the fridge, but only after I tell her it is safe and we are on a good straight piece of road with nobody close by.

RE: 275/80r 22.5 tires

I just put 6 new Firestone truck tires 1100 22.5 on my Imperial. It had 10 year old Goodyear "RV"295 75 22.5 on it and it rode and handled really well. The dreaded truck tires ride and handle just as nice or in my opinion alot better. They were a better price as well. Over thirty years of buying and wearing out all makes of truck tires including the low profile sizes I have never really noticed a huge difference. Unless you compare a Michelin to a Sailun or like. I always liked Michelin but have ran all the other main brands with success as well. Depending what kind of suspension your coach has, mine has 8 airbags, you probably can't even feel if you have a flat or not. Dropping the extra bucks on Michelin's that you will never wear out, does not make any sense to me considering they have their problems like every other brand. Just my 2 cents.

We are on the road now doing that trip. We left friday morning and went as far a as Tulalep Casino at Marysville and dry camped in their lot for free. We do all the shopping for groceries that we need. Sat morning we head out through Seattle and Portland to avoid the weekday traffic and go to 7 Feathers casino at Canyonville Or. We fuel up and dry camp again for free. Sun. morning we head out and and get over the mountains and stop at Corning Ca.At the Rolling hills casino. Nice place $28./ night. Monday we headed out and are now in Bakersfield. Today was about 8 hrs and the longest day we have put in. I5 after Stockton is pretty rough in places. Your first 2 days are doable but will be longer than 6 hrs. The third day would be a very long day from Redding to Indio. I hope that helps, and enjoy your trip. Also you can check the road conditions by going to the state dot road conditions. I just goggle them. It can get iffy over the mountain passes if the weather is bad. That said they keep the roads in pretty good shape.

RE: Calif Hwy 101

Thanks to all for all the info. It sounds like an adventure that we will do on our way back closer to spring. I used to haul logs and steep cliffs and drop offs do not bother me. DW is a different story so coming back she will be on the high side.Ha Ha.

RE: Not A Good Welcome

If the guy had a problem and was worried about his Buddy he should have gone to the office. And to come and stand there with his phone stuck on his ear, that is rude! If you were weaseling in on that spot it is the responsibility of the staff there to send you packing. If that were the case you would deserve having to re pack up and move.

RE: Calling all tire gurus

Hey Sully2, how do you like the Firestones? I am looking at them as well. The company I work for has ran alot of them with good sucess. I love them. Good as any large tires Ive ever used Thanks, I should have got them 2 months ago when they had some rebates on them. They are still a great price.

RE: Air horn and wipers

On my Imperial very similar to your coach the controller was under the dash behind the music radio. My coach had done the same thing and I found the telescopic steering was jammed in the down position and when I lifted it up it fixed it. Also another problem can be in the steering column there are several plugs in the harness that can be checked for loose. Sometimes unplugging the wires off the controller and re plugging them will help. If all fails it may be the controller. Good luck.

RE: Watching someone backup with a toad attached

Some people have enough trouble going ahead yet alone backing up.

RE: Most reliable/easiest to hookup 4 down toad?

We tow a 2007 Chevy Trailblazer 4x4 auto. It has an electric transfer case so shifting to neutral is easy. It has no steering wheel lock so you can just turn the key off. It does not add miles while being towed. It might not be the best off road vehicle, but on the highway and around town it is a nice riding vehicle. There is nothing wrong with jeeps,it depends on what you want.

RE: Big truck gets stuck in Zion tunnel; driver blames GPS

It may be that his boss gave him a motivational talk and he was so pumped up he thought he could move mountains!
