I had a Moountain Aire with a Workhorse chassis and we could carry on normal conversation at any speed. It was much quieter than our previous Pace Arrow. I think it makes a difference what motorhome you have.

RE: Mt Rushmore

If you aren't pulling a toad it would be a good place to rent one. Rafter J Bar had rental cars the last time we were there. It is still my favorite CG i the area.

RE: so is 29 ft the cutoff for not towing a toad ?

Using my 19' Roadtrek I find I can park in many car spots. Some of the small lots have problems. Since I use handicapped spots I find they are sometimes a little larger. If I have to park in a far away spot I will use my Travel-Scoot to get to the store. Having had a Moutain Aire there was never a spot to park in most lots. A toad was a necessity. I have had others from 27'-38' and they were all too large for parking lots.

RE: Rooftop AC for 144' Sprinter Conversion

If you are going to attempt to run a 110V AC off of the 12V the MH is putting out you will find a lot of problems. You will most likely be overloading the alternator of the vehicle and get shortened life out of it. If you have a generator on the RV that is what would be needed to run a 120V AC. If your idea was possible it would have been done by everyone building MHs. That is one of the prime reasons generators get installed.

RE: Electrical Issue

It always helps to give the info on your motorhome. Someone on here may have the same model and have had a similar problem.

RE: GoodSam vs AAA

AAA Plus will tow you up to 100 miles to your desired destination. Good Sam tows you to the nearest repair facility that can handle your problem. And it is their opinion of who can handle your problem. My experience was not a treat but a real trick.

RE: Dodge Xplorer 228 manual?

There are a couple of companies that make generic manuals. "Motors" is one and I can't remember the other one. Check with NAPA or Auto Zone. You can also check E-Bay for older manuals. I got a complete set back when I had a '96 P30 from E-Bay.

RE: Valuation of older motor homes

Sorry about that loss. Now it depends on your insurance co. Have all the receipts available for everything you had done as an improvement for your negotiating. Depending on the insurance co. and the adjustor will determine your payment. Good Luck If you don't agree, after negotiations are ended then you can get an attorney. I have found you will get better settlement if you don't even mention an attorney at first.

RE: Free RV Storage?

When my daughter & SIL were building another barn I pitched in some cash for part of the roof. That isn't exactly free but it works. If you can't afford storage you are getting in the wrong hobby.

RE: New Tire time (beat up subject I know)

Join FMCA and get a great price on Michelin tires. I have the same size tires on my Roadtrek and GMC MH and last year I got 6 Michelin for about $900. the the FMCA Advantage program.

RE: Nail in Tire - Need Advice

Most tire shops (i.e. Walmart) can only go up to 16 inch tires. A truck shop will have the bigger machine to break and put a tire on a larger rim. First, I would not consider Walmart a tire store. Second, my Equinox has 18" tires and I bet Walmart would even do those.

RE: 2003 Newmar Mountainaire

I had one of those and wish I still had it. The 6 steps into it were my downfall. We did not have the basement full but never had a problem with the weight. I had it weighed at our local grain scale by individual wheels and with full water and ready to go we were a good 150# under the limit. I could always travel with less water to give more CCC. We always had a car behind and averaged a little over 8 mpg for the 11 years we had it.

RE: Are we too long to enter Canada?

I just came back from Ontario at Port Huron/Sarnia crossing 2 weeks ago. When I got to the US side there was no one in line. I mentioned that I usually got my passport out while waiting in line. He said he got rid of all of them for you so you wouldn't have to wait. When he asked what I was bringing back I said a couple boxes of cookies. He asked what I spent in Canada and I said I just sponged off relatives. He laughed and sent me on my way, I have never had a crabby agent in either direction and I go a few times a year since most of my relatives are in Canada

RE: Tips for making RV ing easier with disabilties

I like my Roadtrek for the fact it has a 30 gal. tank and If I use it carefully I don't have to dump for a couple weeks. I typically use only the 110V hookup because it is the simplest to use. With my drain for the holding tanks under the LF door I only do that when absolutely necessary. To me it is a great combo for not giving up on travelling.

RE: Ford chassis brake lines

You are overlooking the part of brake lines corroding from the inside. Moisture collects in brake fluid and causes corrosion from the inside out and also in the calipers. Boiling brake fluid will let the pedal go to the floor the same way a leak does. I had this happen on a 2 year old Ford E350 chassis and that was also the heart of the Workhorse brake problems of 10 years ago.

RE: Newmar question

Did you get a build sheet with your Newmar. I had a list of all part numbers on my MH from my Mountain Aire. That came in handy when I had to have a jack replaced and ordered by phone.

RE: Temp in RV

I usually camp where there is electricity to run the AC. I have travelled with cats and a dog also. When someone says Canada is cool in the summer don't believe it. I have been fro British Columbia to Nova Scotia and the days can get very warm in the summer. I have been in Northern Ontario and seen 90F on the thermometer.
