RE: Newmar Sold

Beyond the entry level Forza DP, Winnebago doesn't make anything bigger right now. The Horizon was on pause with the transfer back out of Junction City Oregon back to Forest City, and that is it. No Journey, Tour, Grand Tours in the lineup for the last year. Maybe Newmar will fill that spot for the higher end DPs. Winnebago had to diversify or die, and they have been between Grand Design, Chris Craft and now Newmar. They could learn some things from each other I think. Winnebagos available documentation of build is not duplicated by any other builder that I have seen.

RE: Would this be crazy??

You'll go a long ways to be more comfortable than this. beaverhttps://www.rvtrader.com/listing/2005-Beaver-Motor-Coaches-Monteray-40--Laguna-Diesel-5008369527 A 60k budget isn't going to buy you a 170k rv. It was only it the high 40s before it came down.

RE: shield for towed car

The OP is talking about the shield that attaches to the cars base plate! Not the rear rock guard under the RVI realize that, but I'm saying that if you get rid of the source of the problem, you don't need the fix to the problem. The standard mudflap behind the axle should be sufficient.

RE: shield for towed car

I got rid of the full rear mudflap in the back and don't need any kind of shield anymore. The mudflap was causing the issue.

RE: tires

You may pay a little more but you will never be sorry you bought Michelin. Shop around. I just replaced my Michelins XZA3 with X Line Energy Z, but I've been plenty disappointed in Michelin before. The XZA3s that came off were severely cracked to the point I didn't want to run them any more after 7 years even though Michelin said they were fine. There are many suitable alternatives but you do have to alter tire size. Also, Shop price before jumping in with FMCA discounts - Mine were cheaper retail than FMCA discounted, and once you bring up FMCA you are stuck with FMCA pricing per the agreements.

RE: Class A drive tires

Not sure I would want the noise associated with that tread.

RE: Picking up our new rig

Congratulations on that rig! Hard to find on their website anymore, but at the bottom of the page on winnebagoind.com there resources for your specific manuals, wiring diagrams, drawings, even parts lists. Also plenty of support on facebook groups specific to Winnebago diesels. Enjoy!

RE: Would this be crazy??

I ditched the F350 dually and 5th wheel (which also pulled a Jeep behind it occasionally) in favor of a MH and Jeep - don't miss the truck at all because all it was to me was a motor for the trailer. Now I have room in the garage! The only thing you may not be considering is a $50K MH is going to need a lot more money for maintenance and repair than a new $50K truck.

RE: thoughts on our 2019 Rubicon

I read old Mechanics Illustrated and you should have heard the controversy when Detroit integrated the ignition switch with the starter back in the 50s, eliminating the need to engage the starter with the foot pedal. You would have thought the world was coming to an end - The horror to think you would be stranded out there when this new fangled ignition switch failed and you couldn't manually engage the bendix. Nothing changes does it :) Although my heart did race a bit when the 2019 Sahara would shut down to save fuel - nothing I would like on the trails, although I know you can bypass that.

RE: thoughts on our 2019 Rubicon

That's incredible on the fuel. They are nice, I've rented a 2019 Sahara a couple of times.

RE: Magnum Inverter/Converter Question

Now, Are the AGM's ORIGINAL factory installed style batteries? NOT asking if the batteries were original, asking if the Meridian came with AGM's. Why? Because the Magnum has to be SET for charging regular Lead batteries OR AGM batteries. Very few people realize this. The Owner replaces the Lead batteries with AGM's but does not know to set the Magnum for AGM charging. You do the set up thru the remote panel. Verify this and if set for Lead, your new batteries will be ruined in a few months. Doug The 2011 Meridian came factory with four (4) 31 series AGM coach batteries and a Magnum 2000W inverter. With the residential refrigerator option - that got upgraded to six (6) 31 series AGM coach batteries and a Magnum 2800W inverter (2812). Ranger - you should make sure they didn't change the settings on the Magnum. Under battery type, Use AGM2 for the typical East Penn or Trojan (most brands), or if you installed Lifeline use AGM1.

RE: Remember the EM 50?

This was kind of interesting Why GM Cancelled the 1973-1978 GMC Motorhome

RE: Sub 35 foot Well Built Motorhome?

Looked at a 2001 Winnebago Journey 32' for a friend. Looked pretty well constructed on Freightliner chassis My concerns were: Basement air-- no longer in production. Smaller transmission (2000, not 3000). The basement AC had been back in production for several years: Coleman 2-ton Basement AC

RE: Caulking Roof to gutter

After a roof inspection (2000 Itasca Horizon) in Forest City several years ago the tech told me the roof needed re-caulking. They would do it for $400 or I could do it myself just for the price of the caulk. I chose the 'do it myself' route. I cleaned the roof and gutter with an alcohol based window cleaner and did the caulk job. Decided I did not want to ever go thru that again and bought a 4 inch wide roll of EBond tape. I split the tape and then cleaned again. Marked a straight line above the gutter edge on the roof. Let the factory edge of the tape follow that line and the width of the tape follow the roof line and lap onto the side of the gutter next to the body of the coach. This was the fiber tape and had to be painted with the UV resistant paint. We kept that coach until 2008 and the EBond was as strong as the day I put it on. Great stuffThat must have been more than a couple of years ago, because Forest City wants closer to $2,000 to do it now.

RE: Caulking Roof to gutter

If it is not a full body paint, the tape is probably fine, especially if you have already used scotch brite pads on it.

RE: Tire warranty

Well here is the final solution to my dismay about supposed no warranty on my tires. I don't know who the idiot was that told me there was no warranty, but he was totally wrong. When I physically went to my local Les Schwab, there was no question about Michelin's seven year warranty. They were happy to submit a warranty request to Michelin.Submitting a warranty request and getting resolve are two different issues. You can submit a warranty request yourself and they will find you a Dealer for verification. Getting Michelin to respond favorably to the Warranty........good luck.

RE: Tire warranty

After the Rep denied my warranty for cracking and walked away - the Dealer said Michelin and Goodyear warranty tires until they get tired of it for the year it seems - "until they have had enough".

RE: The wide world of steering stabilizers

The other one I recommend is the Safe-T-Steer with the OPTIONAL Remote adjustment device.. What is the name of Safe-T-Steer's optional remote adjustment device? I can never re-find it.

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

Just replaced all 8 of my 22.5 with Michelin X Line Energy Zs 10 days ago. Two things: Shopped several Michelin commercial tire dealers, most were $10-$30 under FMCA discount if I never mentioned the discount. Some of the shops were high volume shops that had over 50 of my tires in stock, but they were stored outside. The shop I settled on ordered me new tires on request, and they were all dated 1219, or less than 2 months old.

RE: RVi3 portable brake

I have the RVi2 and it works fine - A key advantage to the RVi3 is the piston foot has a sensor to detect if it has a constant steady pressure on it, which sends an alarm to cab or tablet. The main screw up with the RVi2 was depressing the brake after everything was set up, letting the piston slide down the rail to a new position causing your brakes to drag ruining your car in short order with no real warning. The sensor on the RVi3 is supposed to at least give you warning.
