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

I think there is some misinformation/fear being spread here.Ive driven tractor trailer since 1988,most trucking companies do the bare minimum maintenance on equipment to save moola. I worked for the guys with the brown trucks(freight division)for the past 13 years,they do a service on the trucks 1 time per year.diesels are beyond reliable, and yes more expensive, but you get longevity and a far better ride with the air ride suspension.

RE: Which class a motorhome came with a dt466 engine?

RockingM your right,I too have put plenty of miles in trucks/tractors powered be DT 466 motors,reliable is what they're known for,surprised more MHs weren't powered by them.

RE: Fixed it

Not so funny things happen with electrical. One time on a trip to Florida my alternator quit changing, I pulled into a shady town in SC ,pulled the alt.rode my bicycle to the NAPA store, they didn't have any but decided to test it,it was fine,re installed it,not charging, put a battery charger on it overnight and headed down the road only to have the battery losing its charge again,r&r the alt again had it tested, charging fine,checked fuses all good,finally had a idea,changed all the fuses with new ones and the problem was solved. As these MHs get older the electronics will corrode.

RE: Body wraps

I was about to comment that $22,000 seems expensive, especially for a vehicle that is mostly flat surfaces.

RE: 1999 Fleetwood Discovery 5.9 275 HP

Curious as to what the problem was?

RE: Black tank

I second Dennis's opinion, most likely an insect nest.

RE: 1999 Fleetwood Discovery 5.9 275 HP

White smoke/no throttle typically means the turbocharger died. limped more than 200 miles in that condition driving tractor trailer on a few occasions.

RE: Schoolies

Actually I had a class A that I had bought when it was ten years old and spent quite a bit upgrading/maintaining it, had it for 16 years still only had 72k on it,I just can't see spending 75k on a DP thats 10-12years old with tired appliances, under used drive train etc. I don't plan on building an eyesore and definitely won't be looking like its carrying kids.

RE: Schoolies

But built like a tank,with a heavy-duty suspension and leak free steel body that most claim 9-10 mpg. Most high end RV's will be delaminated problems after 15 years. IDK I would rather have a conversation worth 15-20 k than a low mileage high end DP worth squat when I can't drive it anymore.

RE: Schoolies

I'm looking at a legit safe machine that will last,will gladly take it to be certified if that is possible,I think I could build a better coach than what is sold at RV dealers that wouldn't spend time in the shop for warranty work,I've talked with many owners who have a class A with issues.

RE: Schoolies

Really I've never been asked if my RV was certified,at least in the northeast,they've never asked about anything other than size.I worked at Bud motorcoach,they built school busses made of steel.
Rickyrocket 03/19/21 04:08pm Class A Motorhomes

What is the thoughts on this trend.Its nothing new as people have been converting busses forever.Having owned a Cl.A in the past for 16 years,I'm intrigued whit doing a bus conversion. For my retirement home,I was wondering how these vehicles are treated at campgrounds/RV Parks? The bus itself is built on a heavy duty chassis with a steel body,much stronger than most high end class A coaches. So whats the thoughts?
