RE: How much to repair?

I have wondered each year if my pump was working. Sometimes it just takes a little bit to get the water running through it. I never had a problem with freezing except for the year I had it done because I was out of town.

RE: 2001 F 53 heat & A/C cuts out?

I don't think I have a vacuum motor, like on the Safari. Yes....dash heat & A/C. On the way to the camp ground it worked fine, but on the way home it got really bad!!!! I've been working on the A/C, adding Freon. Adding Freon to a system that doesn't need it can cost you a compressor. That is one of the problem with Wal-Mart and everybody else selling the cans but they do help to keep the real AC service men I business.

RE: A good deal?

It isn't the miles on the tires that count on RVs, it is the year of tire manufacture.

RE: Health Insurance for Full timers

Depending on what coverage and deductibles you have $400, per mo. sounds pretty cheap. Health insurance is expensive and Obamacare made it higher because it included many extras you probably wouldn't buy if you had a choice. Do you need birth control? You get it now whether you want it or not. I sell ins. in Mich.

RE: Ever walk into the wrong trailer?

My cousin did that about 35 years ago. She had to go to the bath house at 2:00am and when she came out she couldn't remember if she had to go right or left. She wandered around for 1.5 hr. before finding her own TT.

RE: Used roadtreks

You should start by flushing the brake fluid (very inexpensive) check all rubber hoses, belts, brake lines and also make sure the radiator is clean. Rubber brake lines deteriorate with age and heat. My Roadtrek I had everything I mentioned done and it was worth it for me ($270.) A lot had been done before I bought it so that was a big help. I had several Chrysler cars in that era and never once had a problem with an engine and I sold them to friends who waited to get my cars.

RE: Roof Coating Streaks

I had one MH with an aluminum roof and got black streaks down the side. The next was a Pace Arrow with the rubber roof. There I got white streaks. The Brite-Tek n the Newmar left very few streaks. Choose your color of choice.

RE: How do I remove headlight condensation?

If the headlight is like my '03 Mountain Aire it is from a '02 Grand Marquis.

RE: Traveling I-80

We have stayed at Rafter J Bar 5 times in the past. It is in the middle of everything. Stop at the Corn Palace for a quick stop. Last time we were there for a wild game hunt. A mouse was running around in the stalls there and someone caught it u der a box. The next problem was how to pick it up.

RE: motorhome width

It took many years for all the states to pass the 102" width even though they would license them knowing they were technically illegal. California had a limit on length of 40' for years but sold and taxed 45' as well.

RE: Loose motor home dash

The dash on my '96 Pace Arrow was meant to be lifted up so you could access the wires, fuses, etc, that were under there. Are you sure yours wasn't designed for this also?

RE: How fast do you drive your rig?

I drove fro Holland, MI to Port Huron, MI yesterday and back today in my car. Yesterday I was passed by a couple gassers like I was standing still and I was at 70. Today there was an older C that was passing everything. I got a few trucks passing me also and they have a 60 MPH limit.

RE: Detroit to Niagara Falls via Canada, what to expect?

Medicaid is for special cases only. Medicare is for seniors and most of us have a med/sup plan to cover what Medicare doesn't. Most of the sup plans cover costs out of the country. Only the 3 cheapest plans have no foreign coverage. ( I sell Ins.)

RE: First time RV

I would definitely have the brake fluid flushed. Brake fluid absorbs moisture from the air and when you get the brakes hot from use you can boil the moisture in the brakes. You will have no brakes when the pedal goes to the floor and then after cooling off you will not have a problem. The advantage of doing this in a motorhome is that if your brakes fail and you do get stopped you will have clean underwear within reach.

RE: Nurse refuses to change bandage

What about the possibility she is not really a nurse. I know a few who call themselves nurses who are just aides and are limited in what they can do. That really irked my wife who was a RN and my daughter who is BSN.

RE: Replacing Kwikee steps

I could always tell when it was time to lube my 3 steps on my Mountain Aire. The step would not return fully. I carried a can of spray lithium grease and used it on all the moving parts. After a spraying they always worked great for a few more months.

RE: Axle shafts

In Canada they used to have reductions in price for road use of propane. I don't know if that is still in effect. It could be worth checking out.

RE: Medicare & ChampVA as supplement

DW has a suppliment that costs her 41 dollars a month. You MO plan must be really extensive. The problem with the VA is sadly the system is really overloaded and under staffed. I think you would be better served to go shopping for a more afordable plan. There is a lot more to pricing than just price. From the fact she has had no out of pocket costs she probably has a plan F. I live in Holland, MI (W. side of Mich) and sell med supp. ins. The premiums for Detroit are almost double this side of the state.

RE: B class driveability?

I had to drive my Roadtrek for a week while the Saturn was getting some work done. It is not quite as easy to park as the Saturn but it sure comes close.

RE: Auto Park Brake Issue or Not?

Did you take it to a RV shop? In most cases an independent mechanic will get to it quicker and less expensive. You have a mechanical problem, not an RV problem.
