RE: Hard baseball sized "bump" outside RV

. (live in SW FL so factory trip is out of the question.) Wrong answer. You have a lot of money at stake. A trip to Iowa would be the smartest thing you could do. If you can’t get away, maybe you could find someone to drive it there for you.

RE: Does Your State Require a SBS

Why does this matter and who cares? Its just irresponsible to tow a vehicle without a supplemental braking system in place. Just do the right thing and you won't have to worry about it. I agree completely.

RE: Tiffin Motorhome repair Red Bay rule change

Th reason people like to go to the factory for repairs and service is they know what they are doing. We have had many expensive encounters with RV Dealers. They can't keep or don't want to, good people as they cost too much, from what I've seen. Since American Coach has changed things I'm not sure we can get in either. We're over ten years old. Use to have drop in service. Don't think they do now. Out on the road and anything happens, we have been burned three times. Go to the factory, it might cost more but peace of mind it will be fixed right and expedidiously. Dealers you never know. We have had our Mh sit at one for over two months at a time and repairs not done, or not right and damage done and parts taken off. Correct. This is true of ALL brands. The overwhelming majority of dealers do not know what they are doing, don’t care, or are swamped with work. They tend to require long lead times, do shoddy work, and overcharge. Many will not touch a coach that they didn’t sell. A visit to the factory gets the problem fixed on the first attempt, by someone who knows what they are doing. The dealers often need multiple attempts and the work is not done in a quality fashion. The difficulties in getting Tiffin factory service are why I won’t buy a Tiffin.

RE: GoodSams Early Renewal $50 Gift Certificates

GS clearly explains the offer. The complainers didn’t read the terms.They didn’t clearly explain the terms to me. They didn’t explain the terms at all to me. They just told me that I was getting merchandise certificates, and nothing else. The first time I learned the terms was after they had taken my money and after I got home and read the certificates that they had sold me. If ever there was a scam, this qualifies. I will bet you that 90% of people do not get what they were led to believe they would get. P.S. I live over 100 miles from the nearest Camping World so using the certificates under the circumstances required is very unlikely. CW knows that because they have my address in their computer. There is no way I was going to be able to use these “benefits”.

RE: Tire Dealer trying to sell me older tires, what do I do?

Tires are not made every day in every size, they are made in batches. Depending on sales volume they may make your tire once a year or less. Lets say they make them in January. If you order tires in February the tires you get will be a month or two old. If you order them in November the tires you get will be roughly a year old. There is nothing that the tire dealer can do to change this.

RE: Dealer never put TITLE in my name, am I stuck??

The FL DMV is very strict. If the dealer did not act properly he could lose his license and his livelihood. I would contact FL DMV

RE: Michelin 22.5 tires

The safety standards are MINIMUM standards. Just because all tires meet the minimum doesn’t mean they are all as good as each other. Some brands exceed the minimum standards, ride smoother, quieter, or last longer than others. My Michelins are going on 7 years old and still look like brand new. Not a crack on any of them and the tread looks perfect too. (At 35,000 miles they are hardly used.) They ride great, handle great, and are quiet. I will replace them soon due to age, and the new tires will be Michelins.

RE: Tow Bar In or Tow Bar Out?

I have a Roadmaster Sterling towbar and it only locks in the extended position. I usually hook it up in the retracted or partially retracted position and it extends and self-locks as soon as I pull forward in the motorhome.

RE: Entegra class A

It's really a Thor Challenger with the Entegra name on it. Save some money and buy the Thor unit. Thor bought Entegra a few years ago and this is part of their business plan to capitalize on the Entegra name. Nope. It’s a Jayco. Thor bought Jayco and Jayco owned Entegra. The new gas Entegra’s are remodeled and rebadged Jaycos.

RE: Travel on I-24 through Nashville

But the Titans don't play at 9:00AM on Sunday. You shouldn't have any problem going thru town at that time of day regardless of which route you take. Now if there's a wreck somewhere then all bets are off but who can predict those. Exactly. The Tirans game is at 1PM. No game traffic will be on the road at 9.

RE: Do you wax your fiberglass roof?

I wash it and use 303 Aerospace Protectant once a year.

RE: Ran out of 12 DC @ 3 AM 1st night.

Even a new battery that is run dry and drops to 9 volts may be irreversibly damaged. For long battery life a bettery should not be discharged more than 50%, which is at approximately 12.0 volts.

RE: Ran out of 12 DC @ 3 AM 1st night.

I agree. A gallon of water, dry plates, 9 volts, all points to betteries that are beyond saving. I think a new set of batteries are in your future and the improvement will amaze you.

RE: Skirt or Bra or More?

Been dragging my toad around for 4 years and not one scratch or dent. Just lucky I guess. That said the bras for cars do nothing more than rub the paint off. rip and then start flapping in the wind. Been there done that on the first sports car I owned. :C The rock guards that just cover the nose of the toad still allows rocks to fly over it from the MH. There is a sling type rock guard that attaches to the RV and then to the toad everyone here seems to praise about it doing a good job protecting the toad and easy to attach. It doesn't let anything come up from the road. I can't find the name brand of the good one that everyone likes. Maybe some one can chime in with the brand name of it. Here is a similar picture of how it works. http://hscdn5-hitchsource.netdna-ssl.com/images/TRD.jpg That is a http://protectatow.tripod.com/Protect-A-Tow, I have one and it works well.

RE: 45 footer as first RV

I bought a 40 footer as my first RV, then traded up to a 45. Wish I had started with the 45 as my 45 with tag axle drives, rides, turns and handles better than the 40 did. As for learning to drive it, you have that transition on any large vehicle so wheter it is 32 or 45 means little. The only advantage I see to a smaller coach is that you can fit into more campgrounds, but there are plenty of places to stay in a 45 so this has been a non-issue for us.
