RE: Gasser guys and gals ...why not a diesel ?

We buy size and floor plan. In our case we wanted a unit less that 30 feet. We looked around for a 32-34 dp and did not see anything we liked. Our 30 foot length was important to us. Frankly the DP's have a lot of fancy features installed that do not suit our taste. We liked the Winnebago Vista 29V and bought one. Has everything we want, done simply and its well made. My wife likes it. It has the Ford V8 gas fuel engine. Works well does everything we ask of it or will ask of it. I operate the motor home at a cruise speed of 65 mph. If we want to go faster, well, we would get in the airplane. In the big picture of motorhome travel, we get there at about the same time, give or take a little time, as those units going faster and even much faster. Its time moving, not the speed at which one moves that makes the difference.

RE: Decals cracking!

We found that the rubber eraser worked well. Then some 3M Adhesive remover scraped with a plastic gift card, the flexibility of the card works well on fiberglass. To clean up the remaining adhesive, discoloration, and general oxidation, compounding with an appropriate liquid cleaner is necessary. I use a number of products, rubbing compound, 3M Perfect-It, and Meguires 67, which I use the most. Use a rotary buffing machine on fiberglass, I find that the orbitals do not work nearly as well. Gel Coat on fiberglass is different than paint. Get the speed up and watch the heat carefully, keep the machine moving. Then to clean things up and make the MH look good, I use Meguires 67 which has a wax base as well and it does look good when done. I also use Fast Finish by Meguires, this is an easy to use product that produces a good result. I am experimenting with Meguires Ceramic Hybrid product, but do not feel comfortable using it on the MH with out more experience with it. If you do not have a good buffing machine, it will take a lot longer and be more difficult to finish the removal. Best.

RE: Best tire inflator for dually tires

We have a Sprinter based MH. It had fill extensions that after awhile did not work. The tire man removed them and showed me the correct type of extension that he uses on this type of dual. This is what I used now. Best. https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B06VSRNTMK/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_search_asin_title?ie=UTF8&psc=1
