RE: RV Storage Condos - 7 Years later

We have them in our area as well & they are awesome & doing very well. Garage Condo's Link. I think the idea was a fantastic idea & I'm glad you followed up with such a positive post!

RE: $100 per night

Hi Tom, You are an avid experienced RVer & you also mention you stay at KOA's frequently. Suggestion, install the KOA free app on your phone & you'll never be surprised with a rate again. I just checked the KOA you stayed at on my phone for kicks & is says $95 per night- took 10 seconds. :B

RE: Can I Get Away With a Quick Brake Job in a Campground?

Hi Hadenough. I'm a little late to this thread but thought I would share my very positive experience with a very nice RV park that allowed me to have a brake job done on my motorhome right at my site. Long story short, I just got my new to me 2002 Safari. Dropped it off at KC Peterbilt for a PM & inspection. Everything was perfect. We arrived @ River Plantationin TN & noticed a burning smell from passenger steer wheel. Found a big truck mobile service & asked CG if I could have it looked at & they said sure. Tech said I needed brakes (about $2K). It was certainly a setback. I asked the CG again if the work could be done at my sight & surprisingly they again said sure. All went very well, vacation saved, didn't miss a beat. Returned home from the trip to a critical recall notice for brakes in my mailbox. Monaco even reimbursed the brake job.

RE: Tire dealers in Delaware

Will be in Delaware in June to pick up my grandson, anyone have any recommendations for tire dealers. Need 10 for my rig and 4 for the trailer. No recommendations but I am envious that you have driven so many miles to need to replace tires on a 2017.

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

Hi John I have replaced motorhome tires several times in the last 20 years & I have always been able to do better than 2 years old as well as 1 year old. Newer tires are important to me also it just makes sense. I've never been in an emergency replacement situation so you bet I've waited for fresher tires. Are you located in the Black Hills SD? If so that might be part of the problem you are dealing with.

RE: New Member and Question

Hello & welcome!!! Others have already covered the pros & cons but I thought I'd also throw in my two cents. I also like the idea of trading the vehicle out for one that is towable four down with no hassle. ;)

Thanks for sharing!

RE: Early check in

Sorry not much to add here but no we haven't come across that before. If we are checking into a CG or resort for a destination stay that we know to be very popular we'll plan to end the day before 100 miles or so away. That way on check in day we get up late, drag our feet, etc. as to not arrive early.

RE: winterizing with compressed air

Winterizing with compressed air is just fine...if done correctly....and it makes un-winterizing soooo much easier. In fact there is no need to un-winterize...(flushing, rinsing lines etc.) 5 Trailers 30+ years and I have never used anti-freeze except in the traps. Since the ice maker was your only problem, my guess is that that system was not done correctly. I agree with you. I never used RV anti freeze except drains for 20 years and zero problems. My first two coach's were super simple to use the air only method. No dishwasher, no ice maker, no clothes washer, no Aqua Hot, no macerator toilet. I also agree with everyone who choose to use the pink stuff as it is the industry standard. If I was the OP in this thread I would do the same next winter except remember to cycle the ice maker.

RE: Brother in Law wants to not get in financial trouble

I don’t understand the concept that if you ask the price you can’t afford it and/or shouldn’t buy or consider it? I’ve never known that all RV’er’s are so wealthy? I think someone doing anything without the concept of cost is a fool! Sorry for all of the rich reading this thread I’ve offended. Well Bless Your Heart! Oh there isn't much to understand. The person that utters the "if ya have to ask ya can't afford" bunk is simply being arrogant and smug. I've heard it a few times in my life & I typically think very little of the guy that responds to a question that way. This is a forum & anyone should be free to ask anything they wish without smart aleck answers.

RE: Moab Campgrounds

In 2016 we stayed at Spanish Trail & loved it. We just returned from a week @ Portal in late March & loved it also. We chose Portal/Resort side this time as we anticipated some rain & wanted the concrete site/patio. Portal is pricey but may be worth it if you plan to use the amenities.

RE: 260 hp?

Transmission also makes a difference. Is it the Allison 3000? Good catch Brett! My 95 Bounder had the Allison 6 speed.

RE: 260 hp?

Great engine. My 95 was very similar to the 2001 you are describing except mine was rated @ 230 HP. With a tow I was likely about 23,000 lbs. My current coach has 450 HP & w/tow is 45,000 lbs. Frankly my power to weight ratio is no different today than what I had 20+ years ago.

RE: Grand Canyon trailer village

Trailer Village has larger sites but maybe they are all taken? We stayed there and had a FHU pull thru long enough for out 44' and tow car.

RE: Towing a Ford Edge

Towing a 2014 since new and it's been a great toad. No issues.

RE: Changing heat pump to heat strip

I've had heat strips & currently have heat pumps & I don't care for either source for producing heat. Both are loud & obnoxious and as mentioned, since heat rises, rather illogical. To be fair I've never seen a RV that didn't have a actual heat source (furnace/hydronic/etc.) so these are just redundant anyway. If the OP's question was about replacing a failed roof unit with either of the two models, not sure the heat strip isn't the more practical. RV Heat Pumps are no Louder than when they are in COOL(AC) mode. IF you have a loud or abnormal noise, you have a problem. ALL a HP does is reverse the flow of coolant. If it makes a noise in HEAT mode, it will make a noise in COLD mode. The REASON, HP's became more popular was the sound of an LP furnace Blower motor and the hotter output temps, a lot of RVer's did not like. Hydronic systems are almost totally silent. The radiator muffin fans barely make a noise. Most CG's your 120 shore power is part of your daily fee. So, use your HP's for free instead of paying for LP on a furnace or Diesel on a Hydronic system. Hydronic also has 120 elements so that would be "free" also. Doug My heat pumps work fine and I'm familiar with how they work. I suppose If I was honest my issue is why wear out a very expensive component doing what a $15 Walmart heater will do quietly. Running a HP is no different that running the unit on AC (same wear & tear). Surely in your experience you have seen roof units all have a finite life span.

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

I do plenty of RVing with my wife and solo too. Most of our weekend camping trips I'll take the coach & she'll meet me at a CG or state park. I prefer to check in, back in, hook up, slides out, level, turn seats around, etc., etc. by myself & have her show up when I'm done.

RE: Safety concerns and crash data for Class A's?

I have safety concerns as well about motorhomes I always have. However I'm still enjoying RVing. I don't think about safety when I'm driving my car but I sure do when driving the coach. My concerns keep me from driving faster than 60-65 mph, pushed me to using a TPMS, avoid major metro areas at peak times, etc. There is a lot one can do to minimize your exposure to an unsafe situation. But if a more crash worthy vehicle is what you seek both bus conversions & truck conversions will likely hold up better in an accident.

RE: Class A tire protection coatings

Only thing I know of to protect a tire is an actual cover. I use the 303 as a dressing when I feel like detailing the RV but I am under no illusion it will make my tires live longer. It is however the only dressing I know of that doesn't hurt the tire. I thought the petroleum based dressings were the ones not to use.
