RE: First Time RV owner...need some advice please!

I started with a brand new Jamboree in 1969 and have many various RVs in that time. In my experience I found that many Cs have a water problem in the cabover section that is expensive to repair. I would consider an A and I would also say that Newmar was the first to come ot with slides in 1990 and has the most experience with slides. I had a 2003 Mountain Aire gas MH and had virtually no problems with it in 11 years. I miss it but the 6 steps up kept me out. I have 1 step in the GMC and the Roadtrek suits better for a single person. Keep looking and it is no more difficult to drive a Class A over a C. The rear is the same width on both so you need the same space to get around.

RE: man its hot !!

Keep in mind that white will be cooler than silver. If you don't believe that try touching 2 different cars in a parking lot

RE: European RV's and AC

My 19' Roadtrek has a 7500 BTU Fedders window unit that they mount in the roof rear. I was in 95F and had no problem keeping cool.

RE: sleeping quarters on a class b

My bed is left made up all the time. I use the small round table up front for doing things. In the 3 years I have owned the RT I have still nt eaten a meal in it. I bought this from my 6'3" neighbor after he took it out one time and found the bed was only 5'11". Be sure to check the bed before purchase.

RE: House batteries not charging -- Road Trek

I have studied electronics and worked on them a lot and don't carry a VOM with me. I can use a 12V lightbulb and tell from the brightness if I have good voltage or not without being concerned about polarity. It works for me.

RE: House batteries not charging -- Road Trek

It is a 2013 and that means it could have been built in the last half of '12. If the battery is original it is probably nothing more than a dead battery. Don't replace it with a car battery but get one for that use as an RV battery. If she doesn't have the manual it can be downloaded from the RT website. They have all the previous model info available to download there.

RE: Parking Class B's

My 19' Roadtrek takes the closest parking spot available. I usually take a handicapped parking spot since I have a walking problem. If I don't find a close spot I take my Travelscoot from under the bed and drive into the stores. The only problem is I can't load my basket with much. As stated a pickup takes that much space also.

RE: No turning back... need advise moving forward

I would surely rent a MH for a trip if you have no RV experience. To me a 5th. wheel would be out because I would not be able to use all the steps to the bedroom. We travelled a lot with a 38' MH and a Saturn Vue behind and never had a problem with any place due to size. DW loved the kitchen in our Mountain Aire better than our home kitchen.She always swaid when I died she would sell the Mountain Aire and get a Roadtrek. You can see what I use now. Since she died I have not cooked in a MH. There are so many good restaurants out there and an occasional bad one. I have made bad meals at home also.

RE: Short Queen Mattress

Go to a local mattress store that makes their own and get it made to size and cofort you want.

RE: Fastest RV

Those GMCs will keep up with the traffic flow. They only have a 3 speed tranny so I am much happier running at 55-60 mph.

RE: Vintage Class A Motor Homes

I am thinking of downsizing and getting down to only the Roadtrek. My '75 Eeganza II has only 58K mies on it and Holland Motorhomes and the Olds mechanic are sure that is first time around. I have't made my mind up yet but have used the Roadtrek a lot this year.

RE: What price to replace the engine water pump in a workhorse?

The reason they want to look at the motorhome is to determine how difficult it will be on your MH. Every builder uses different ways of hiding components and access varies from one maker to another.

RE: Used Class A's

From my experience there is very little difference in operating costs. I have had 4 A's 3 C's and a B. I prefer a nice A to a C any day because of the tendency of Cs to leak in the cabover section.

RE: DP going up and down mountains

The hills going to FL. are not much different than the ones from Barrys bay to Hutsville, just longer. Hwy 62 has some good hills also for practice close to home.

RE: maintenance

Your coach is from the period of the Workhorse brake recall. I had a W22 in my Mountain Aire from '03 and had the problem. Be sure to flush that brake fluid

RE: FREE prescription cards

When my insurance had a ridiculous co-pay on Celebrex I got it for less from Canada Drugs. Now with a generic I pay $25.00 for a 90 day supply of the cheap imitation and it works.

RE: Lucille Ball Long, Long trailer

My first trailer was a 1969 21' Layton and I towed it with my '69 Lincoln. Back then it worked fine with a 460 CID motor. A hitch dolly was advertised in the TL magazine at that time also. My TT only weighed 4400# empty. I think that '56 Mercury had about a 353 CID. I also lived in a 55' New Moon for a couple of years back in the early 60s.

RE: Is Having GPS In The Radio Worth The Time and Money?

I bought a 2016 Equinox for Christmas and they don't offer CD players in any cars anymore. I have a couple of USB inputs in the center console for whatever I wqant to plug in. I use XM for my radio needs for Symphony Hall and Jeff & Larry's Comedy channel.

RE: Averages

I gave been retired for 23 years and am now alone. I have had my Roadtrek for 3 summers now and have still not eaten in it. I eat before stopping in a CG. I did make 650 miles a few weeks ago because I didn't want t stop in Chicago but that was an exception. It is lonely with no one to share the scenery with after 55 years with DW.

RE: Coach battery on 1995 coach house van

My Roadtrek has it under the rear seat/bed on the driver side. Since it is in a non-ventilated area it is a AGM battery. Look close to electric boxes like circuit breakers.
