RE: Mega Used-MH Dealers or Lots (besides PPL)??

General RV in Michigan, Berryland in Louisiana and there's many more. General RV is now in IL. and OH. as well as Michigan. I bought my last 2 MHs from them and was very happy with the sales and service.

RE: Tires...other than RV...

In 2001 I bought a 1992 Chevy Astro van with only 30K on it. It had original tires on it that still looked good. Since I only bought it to help me move across Michigan I thought the tires would be OK. The first night I had 1 tire go flat overnight. Repeat that for the second night. I am not that slow a learner. For day 4 I had all new tires.

RE: 1987 Bounder 34ft wiring question

There are a couple of wires on my Newmar that are not factory equipment. I towed my wife's PT with a trans pump and that wire is still there even though the car is gone. There is also a wire for the brake system that I still have. If I were to sell without the brake system I would remove the control but leave the wire there.

RE: Ongoing saga of the motorhome

If you are paying high NADA price you should at least get new tires. Depending on size they could be $2500-$4000. You shouldn't have to spend a dime on h8gh retail value.

RE: leveler spring noise

About the only way the springs can make noise is the movement on the anchors. Shoot a little oil on the top and bottom where the spring hooks on. See if that quiets them down.

RE: Why is the Class B forum so dead?

I am a new owner of a B as well as an A owner. Just for fun I looked through the local Craigslist last September and saw a '95 Roadtrek pictured. I recognized it as belonging to a neighbor. I called him and said I was interested. I had just lost my wife and the Mountain Aire is a little overkill for me. I bought it before even putting the other one up for sale. After checking a few different places like Alaska marine ferry and New Foundland ferry I found it much cheaper to take the RT. I don't need a toad. I get 16 mpg with the RT and ferry prices are the same as a car. It came from KY and had no rust and also included all paperwork and service records since new. As soon as some of our snow disappears The Mountain Aire goes up for sale. Both have been stored inside all of their lives and it makes a huge difference in them. I have a lot of summer planned for the RT. My only problem is I am a slow earner. Back when I had boats I learned to sell the old one first. I didn't do it then and this is the 4th time I have ended up with 2 MHs at the same time.

RE: Child safety in a prevost

You said you don't use the Prevost often. How old are the tires? That could be a greater concern than the car seat.

RE: Online RV sales sounds to good?

Without any specifics we can't answer. I think that might be the place that keeps sold vehicles on forever but I am not sure about that.

RE: Rotate tires on Class A YES OR NO ( why?)

Since class A uses similar tires to a semi this is what I'd say. Check your steer tires they are probably different from your drive tires. You ought to check out motorhomes a little better. I don't know of any that recommend different tires for each axle.

RE: Deposit on MH purchase?

My second MH we went to an RV show in Port Huron, MI with no intention of buying anything. DW found one she loved. They gladly accepted the $20. I had in my pocket. My next MH was from a different dealer (General RV), same salesman and we didn't need a deposit. He even sent a van across the Detroit area to pick us up so we could ride home together.

RE: 2000 windsport motorhome

There is a section on E-Bay that lists manuals from various ages. You also have to say what model chassis you have. You used o be able to get a new one from Helm but I don't know if they are still around.

RE: Confused about bearings

A lot depends on what size vehicle you are talking about. Finger tight would be acceptable on a light weight car but not tight enough for a 30000# motorhome chassis. You might need to get some specs from the chassis maker.

RE: Towing with class c Jayco

Honda CRVs for 2015 are not towable. They went to a CVT transmission. Ford & many GMs are towable with automatics. Lighter weight is easier towing.

RE: Cab overhead bed restraint

I made a ladder that had extensions on one side that would sit over the lip on the bunk pullout. Only my youngest travelled with us then and she never fell out. That was a '89 Jamboree Rally that didn't come with a ladder from the factory. ( my first new MH)

RE: burnt power cord plug and wires to it on cord

This is a good reason to carry a 50-30 amp adapter. You will get one side of the 50 amp power but each side has 50 amps so you get an outlet that has probably been used less and not as worn.

RE: Interstates versus secondary roads

You get to see a lot more of the country off the Interstate. I came home from Edmonton, AB with no freeways until I had to cross the Big Mac bridge back in Michigan. We just went East until a road ended and then went South until we found another road going East. We saw a lot of things not visible from the freeways.

RE: I 75 northbound conditions Saturday Feb 21

Schools are closed tomorrow for many schools in Oakland/Macomb counties for freezing temps. Any ice on roads won't be affected by salt because it doesn't work under 17F. I wish you good luck and a safe drive.

RE: michelin 235-80-22.5

Check out FMCA and their Michelin Advantage program. You can buy that tire for a very good price that way.

RE: Michelin vs Toyo

If you join FMCA you will find the Michelin Advantage has great prices on tires. I checked the size you have for mine and a couple months ago they were $399.99 each. You have to pay for installation, balance & disposal at the dealer but many ties they will end up selling your old tires to a farmer or small trucker.

RE: Where to get tires

When I checked on the 235 80 R22 from Michelin and FMCA I think it was $399 per tire for the Michelin. That sure makes it worth being a FMCA member plus their travel insurance that is included in the membership.
