RE: Super Singles

On a recent road trip I seen many trucks and trailers equipped with super singles. They are becoming more popular in the trucking industry. I personally would not put them on a motorhome. I too have many miles rving and never had a flat other than a screw in a tire. Like I said before if you ever had a flat on the rear at 60 mph it could be quite a ride. Without the other dual to keep that corner up and the lack of clearance on a motorhome the damage could be major. There may be many advantages to super singles and it a choice like everything else.

RE: Sacramento

Thanks for the info on Sacramento, but I never asked about Seattle, nor do I care. Maybe someone else might care, but since you are the only one on the road sorry to distract you.

RE: Sacramento

We were back and forth through Seattle last month and yes the road is rough but the traffic volume is just nuts. 7 hrs. from Everett to Salem. Sacremento is another city I hate to pass through. I haven't been through there for 2 years but will this winter. I was wondering if it would be better so thanks all for the heads up.

RE: NEWBIE TO 5TH WHEELS

I don't quite understand the problem. Your hitch should be locked in whichever position when you are hooking up and unhooking. If it is not locked in position then yes it would be a problem. After you are hooked up you can unlock and slide the hitch or slide it manually without the trailer hooked up.

RE: Firestone 22.5 tires for RV

I had a set on my DP that I just sold and was very happy with them. I put 4000 miles on them.

RE: Experiences with Toyo M144 tires in winter

I didn't have Toyo's but ran Goodyear Steering tread tires on my drives and made the trek from central Alberta several times with no incident. I got caught in a snowstorm around Jasper once and drove through six inches of snow with no issues. A really steep hill would probably been different. I did buy a set of cable chains but never needed to put them on. Cheap insurance to have them along. I always watched the weather forecasts before travelling and stayed off the road if a storm was coming through.

RE: I just cant understand...

Dutchman, A good buddy of mine was stationed out in the boonies in Vietnam, and was quite the favorite of the officers in his little compound, mostly due to his less than acceptable attitude. He often was rewarded by being assigned latrine duty. One day he decided to speed things up by switching from Jet fuel (Kerosene) to AvGas (high octane gasoline) He splashes some in each barrel, and decides that a 10-12' long pole with a flaming rag, would make the task perfectly safe. As he touches the first pan, it blows and throws him backwards about fifteen feet. He lands awake and face up, no real injuries actually. He opens his eyes to the feeling of rain, and then watches as a large cloud of poop and poop paper, returning from the heavens, covers him. As you might imagine, he decided that there was no real time savings in switching to Avgas, and the rain didn't taste too good either. I don't know anything about composting toilets, but that story had me laughing to tears.

RE: Trailer crash on mountain road.

It was a loose nut behind the wheel.

RE: anybody know how to cure this??

For me it is that old guy that stands in front of me when I look in the mirror. He is the guy that hides this stuff.

RE: Looking seriously at a 1999 DSDP3884 Dutch star

I would not worry about that engine and transmission. Like Cummins said with that mileage not to worry. If the guy has records of everything like you say it is probably well maintained. The low mileage could be a few miles every year and not sitting for a long period. If it sat for a very long time you may get seals drying up on the engine transmission and differential. You would see oil leaking there. The oil you seen on that tube is most likely the slobber tube and is normal. Price wise where I live it is well priced and what can you buy for that price that is better? Only you can answer that. Happy trails!

RE: Cat 300 running hot on gradea

The harder you are pulling the more heat it will build. It may hold at a certain speed climbing a hill but if it is lugging along at a lower rpm it will build more heat. When in very hot weather it adds to the problem dramatically. Shifting down alows it to pull the hill easier and not build as much heat plus your fan is cooling better at the higher rpm.

RE: Hubby says we need more power!!

It sounds like your coach is pretty normal. My last one had an ISC 350 and was 38.5 feet. It was no hotrod. like Windmaker said have things checked out. Make sure there is good air intake and no exhaust resriction. Add ons can sometimes work great but can also cause some serious problems as well.The one plus that you do have is most likely decent fuel mileage.

RE: problem uncoupling

Try pulling it out all the way and then pushing down on the handle. My last hitch would sometimes not want to stay in the open position unless I did that.

RE: I am so MEAN! :(

I'm the meanest person in the world. I started to water the plants in front of the house with the hose and out runs this LITTLE baby bunny, soaking wet and scared to death. I never even saw it in there. I felt so bad-the poor little thing was terrified. At least now I know what's living in the holes in the garden! Elmer Fudd is meaner than you with his shot gun!! He He!!

RE: problem uncoupling

I usually give it a bump back also. Just be sure you have your wheels chocked. I almost had a disaster.
