RE: What camera do you RVer's use?

I have 7 Pentax SLRs and 14 lenses from fish-eye to 800mm telephoto so I went with a Pentax DSLR so all my lenses could still be used. It has been more thab 2 years now and I still feel good about it. I do have 150 film cameras from 1893 Cycle Poco (4X5), to eberything down to Minox. If ou can use any of the old stuff keep that in your choices.

RE: Roadside Assistance - Tires

I have been RVing since 1969 and have had a serpentine belt break and a fuel line problem that requireed towing but never a tire problem in that time with TTs, popups, and 7 MHs. It could happen but not yet. I have also never had a problem with car tires in the 49 cars owned since 1959. There are a couple million miles in that time span.

RE: Huge hail storm - Repair / replace an aluminum roof

Don't know where you get $50,000 unless you have Agreed Value, which I doubt on a 2003. NADA is $22,000. GOOD LUCK, YOU WILL NEED IT. You need to check another book. :W I show a low book of $43,950 and an average retail of $49,350. He is in Canada where everything is priced much higher than here in the US. I am glad I left the area on Tuesday to miss that storm.

RE: Can basement of 1994 Damon Intruder take weight of scooterr?

When I went to my Roadtrek I had the same problem. I bought a Travel Scoot scooter that folds and weighs only 35# It slides under the bed on my Roadtrek and sets up in abot 30 seconds. The only problem is loose sand with the small wheels but with hard surfaces it goes great.

RE: Steps stopped working

It is probably a power window motor from a Ford product that runs your steps. NAPA had mine for about $55.00 when my '03 Mountain Aire had that problem. Always make sure there is no possibility it can come to life when working on it. They have enogh torque to remove fingers easily.

RE: Not towing a car, Where can we go?

My Roadtrek is 19' and I go anyplace I would take my car. I don't have the width of a C but 19' is 19'. I also park in handicap spots in most places. Mine is n longer than the fellow with the 4 door pickup andd they park all over.

RE: Niagara Falls and ???

Take a train ride to Toronto and then a tour. Toronto is great if you aren't doing the driving. I will be driving through myself on Thursday. The train trip is great by itself and there are so many things to see there. Casa Loma itself is worth the ride. You young kids enjoy yourself. I can still remember when I was only in the 60's so you will get some great memories. French is nothing. When I went to an ATM I got a choice of 6 languages.

RE: Considering used Coach. How old is too old?

Look at my RVs in my signature. My daughter & SIL have a 1982 Bluebird that they take all over. I drove my GMC home from Florida and just had the Roadtrek to NW Wisconsin, all with no problems. Roadtrek goes next week again for 2-3 weeks in Ontario, Canada,

RE: Mount Rushmore in the Winter

When I had my Pace Arrow in +10F I went through a tank of LP in 1 1/2 days. The freeways in the North have gates at many spots to keep people off in bad weather. You could spend days waiting for a road to open that time of year. If you are in a car you would at least have a hotel for the duration rather than a MH out of LP with frozen tanks.

RE: Thinking of going to a Class B

I went from a 38' Mountain Aire with large tanks to the 19' Roadtrek. I have 30 gal waste water and 12 black. That is better than the '75 GMC with only 30 total. I have an Onan gen., microwave, water heater, shower, and 110 Air Condit. 7500 BTU kept me very comfortable in 90+ last couple weeks. Mine has a 318 Dodge chassis and goes on most ferries for the same as a car. I don't use CG bathrooms. I have had this 2 year the frig. is full of juice, Snapple and soft drinks.

RE: Thinking of going to a Class B

I just got back from 2 weeks in my Roadtrek. It is great for me. With another person it would be crowded but doable. Theoretically it sleeps 4. Reality says 2. I did average 18 mpg on 1500 miles and AC running half the time.

RE: Diuretics R us

I had my prostate removed about 7 years ago. When I get the urge to go it is "NOW". I have been fortuate in not needing the pads they suggested but it sure is great to have the bathroom only 6 feet away.

RE: just purchased fuel milage horrible

The newer gas is very hard on the old rubber lines. I got less than 4 mpg taking my GMC to Florida and with new gas lines got over 9 mpg on the return trip. That was one of the good things that came from thatbtrip. The rest was a fiasco.

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.
