RE: Frods V10 engine

On my second V-10. First one was in 2001 Natioinal, no problems. My second on is in a Newmar Canyon Star 3953. The motor is fine my problem is the sound. I had a 350 CAT in between in a 2003 National Tradewinds with Sparton chasses. That will spoil you. Got rid of the diesel because of maintenence expense.

RE: Travel thoughts

Need to make a trip from the west coast to the Midwest (Missouri). I have two choices of time, leave last of may and re3turn in July or leave last week of July coming back early October. I'd prefer last of May but am leery of tornadoes. Which choice would you take? I've done the tornado thing twice and was fortunate. Guess it's that 3rd. times a charm thing :) I would choose May. Buy a CB with a national weather alert and/ or a weather Radio. We would be staying at the RV park in Old St. Charles. The last time we were there was 9 small tornados touched down in St. Charles. Not that much damage though.

RE: Motor homes over the years

Apologists for the state of current RV quality often make the assertion that RVs being driven down the road are being operated in “earthquake conditions”. I’m skeptical of this assertion and would like to see a citation for it. How often does the refrigerator in your stick house, or the AC unit, or your stove, and other furniture get bounced around like the items do in your RV? Perhaps you just park your RV and don't drive it but I drive mine on the Nation's highways at least 15,000 miles a year and the roads are far from smooth. I may be exaggerating about an earthquake. Actually I think bouncing down the highways day after day in the RV is WORSE than a short term earthquake. :B I agree, especially on California freeways. I feel sorry for the motor home. The washer even jarred unplugged.

RE: Class A Wind Handling

I had a 39 ft. National Tradewinds and twice I had the pleasure of driving it in Misspuri and Oklahoma in winds that were blowing semis over and I could see my tow whippin back and forth behind me but felt little affects, that was a diesel, then I picked up my 40 ft. Newmar Canyon Star and headed across the desert with 43 MPH cross wind gusts, Stopped at a roadside rest and had lunch with the coach rocking slightly but it handled great. Just slow down and expect the worse and wait for that next gust, if it's too bad get off the road.

Motor homes over the years

Compared to some of you I am a fairly new in the motor home world. My first motor home I took delivery 18 years ago on May 16, 2001. Then in Dec. 2002 I took delivery of my first diesel, both being Nationals. Took off for the East coast without thought or worry shortly after delivery both times, no problems . Now I'm on my third, a Newmar Canyon Star since a year ago January and I follow forums and it is scary when you read about people's problems. Even the conversations on Open Road Forum has changed. Do you feel that the RV manufacturing is getting more sloppy or is it Government requirements that are the problem. Even with automobiles, I own 9 cars, 8 of those being General motors (6 are business cars) and am having problems that I have never experienced in the 37 years I have been in business.

RE: Mileage on used class A

A year ago I traded my 2003 diesel for a 2013 Newmar Canyon Star, it had 24,000 miles on it at the time. That is about average for a 5 year old motor home that someone has used and enjoyed. My 2003 had 67,000 miles on it 40,000 0f that was put on the last 5 years I had it.

RE: How Hard Is It To Solo In A Class A?

The only time I have any challenge backing up my RV solo is in the dark with no overhead lights during a heavy rainstorm. I don't even go there, even if I'm not soloing.

RE: How Hard Is It To Solo In A Class A?

So I've been primarily looking at Class Cs under 26 feet mainly for the ease of driving and parking. But, I'll be full timing for a couple of years (or more) and the thought of having more living space and storage space appeals to me. However, I'll be solo and am concerned about parking and backing by myself. The largest vehicle I've driven and backed was big Ryder box trucks but I always had someone to assist in guiding. Of course, there were no backup cameras. Anybody here solo? Any issues? (I guess not if you're still doing it, right?) Thanks. you need 3-things...confidence that you CAN do this; humility to admit you need an extra set of eyes or help at times; practice, practice, practice...mostly thru experience. I soloed in a 39 ft. class a for a couple years. I had no problems except backing it into my storage unit. I usually got one of my daughters to guide me in but did it alone a couple times. One time I backed a few inches too far and bent my ladder. At one RV park I usually had help from office. I would try to get a pull through.

RE: Roadside service

Many of these roadside service plans contract with the same service providers. FMCA, Coach Net, Good Sam, etc. - the same shop or technician may respond. You've convinced me, think I'm gonna change to FMCA and if it doesn't work I'll just blame you. :B

Roadside service

I have always had Coach Net Roadside assist and it is time to renew. How does FMCA Roadside compare to Coach net ? Coach Net is $169.00 a year. I've never had any complaints wit them just looking to save money and still get the same service.

RE: Leveling question.

Thanks everyone. I just thought if it was automatic then it should be automatic. No help from me. Wish I could have just stayed with my old 2003 Tradewinds.
GHOST1750 11/19/18 09:28am Class A Motorhomes
Leveling question.

Has anyone else found that when you push the auto level button it sometimes does not completely level and if so do you level manually? I Carry a level with me as I did in my older motor homes. Still getting used to all the new fangled things on this motor home. It is a 2013 Newmar Canyon Star. Still trying to get used to going from diesel to gas.

RE: Newmar Mountain Aire

Congratulations, Newmar builds a great coach. We have a 2013 Canyon Star. Only fault I have with it is , it's not a diesel. I went from diesel to gas and am having a problem adjusting to the sound. Love diesel.

RE: Motor home slide

Thanks everyone. I have always had National motor homes before, wish they still built them. I liked the hydraulic slides much better.
