RE: Balancing Rear Tires?

If you put that **** in your tires, be sure to let anyone that works on that tire assembly know in the future before they do anything to it. It can make problems for them if you don't. You'll need filters on your valve stems to keep it out or your tire gauge. Not true in all cases. The filters in the stem comes from using powder. I have used Dynabeads in my last 3 sets of tires. They are sized bigger than the stems, they ride fine, nice and smooth, and other than sticking them in when the tire is mounted on the rim, nothing else is required.

RE: Monaco 2008-10 class a diesel 38-40 ft

Yes, but not from the manufacturer who is long gone. There is a Monacoers forum on Yahoo, IRV2 has a Monaco section, and Facebook has a very active group. The only comment I would make is I would back it down a year or so, 10's are questionable, and 9's are on the cusp, earlier would be better. JMHO

RE: To Brake assist or not to brake assist ?

I guess it is possible but I can't even imagine how a toad can break loose unless someone tried to cut corners. I mean you have to have both arms of the tow bar fail, as well as both tow chains, or perhaps your hitch broke loose and the entire tow bar came loose. In that case, you still have the two tow chains. I never trusted the hooks on the tow chains and I replaced the ends with screw on links. These will never come loose and will hold the vehicle if everything else fails. On my rig, I would have to have four things fail at once for my toad to break loose. This seems highly unlikely. I wasn't going to get in this discussion, but my FIL had his toad come completely off the rear of his motorhome in the Badlands. It was a Roadmaster tow bar and base plate, the older style where the safety cables attached to the base plate. The entire baseplate sheared off and the vehicle took off across a field thankfully to the right away from the highway not across it. We saw this with our own eyes.

On our coach the solenoid that controls the door seal is just to the left of the generator when you pull it out. It sits down fairly low and has an adjustable knob on it to set the air pressure. I had to replace the line on it one time.

RE: Diesel Pusher Tires.

I got a fantastic price on Toyos with installation at Josam's in Orlando, not Tampa, but close.

RE: Tire pressure valve cover indicators

I'd much rather have a TPMS. Reads out from the driver's seat all the time.

RE: Shopping tires now wow$$$$

After 2 sets of cracked Michelins, both in 3 1/2 years, I have Toyo's and am very pleased with the ride and the price.

RE: Safety and security

As for campgrounds, we've been in some pretty dark ones and do make it a practice for leaving a lot of exterior lights on, all night. . I'm probably opening a can of worms, but we have been full-timing over 14 years, and have probably felt unsafe a couple of times max. But we are experiencing more and more folks that light up their rigs all night that make it obnoxious to anyone nearby. We seek out dark campgrounds, not brightly lit parking lots. In fact we are finding more and more parks that request all outside lights be turned off after a set time, say 10pm.

RE: TPMS - Newbie worried about what it shows.... is it OK?

The sidewall information tell you how much air is required to carry XX pounds (the load capacity of the tire). Max capacity. But folks on here put more air in ?? No I don't think so. The pressure on the side of the tire is the max to carry the rated load capacity of the tire. Most folks end up with lower than that number. You shouldn't exceed the sidewall number cold.

RE: Cut off battery switch for chassis

Kind of simple, but turn one off and try to start the engine, if it starts then you have the wrong switch.

RE: holiday rambler

Great coaches but if you find one you are interested in which has the Roadmaster rr4r chassis make sure it has had the trailing arms replaced. This was a serious safety issue and the original recall replacement parts were as bad also. But not all Holiday Ramblers. Our Navigator has an S10 chassis with a Detroit Diesel, no trailing arm problem. HR has a large model range.

RE: I promise...last psi question

From what I have read and the info I have found that there is no need to be concerned with even a 25% increase in pressure. I would agree if only 1 tire has an increase like that and all the others are 5%, something is wrong. My TPMS manufacturer even recommends setting the max alarm 20-25% over the set pressure. Am I wrong?

RE: holiday rambler

In the old days HR was a priemier builder. Later they were bought out a couple of times and quality went in the toilet. The one complaint I had with ours was it felt narrow inside compared to other brands. I find this comment interesting, considering that while Monaco owned them from somewhere around 2000-2009 they were virtual clones of Monaco. Then Navistar owned them along with all of Monaco. It was after REV bought the remnants of Monaco that the entire line and pecking order was changed.

RE: New campground situation for us

Did get the lock fee refund plus one night free. Hopefully they leave today the refund is OK but rather have the reserved spot versus a spot that has no shade and a “nice” view of the RV storage yard. Well at least this hasn’t happened to us before in all the years camping. Well, I for one, feel for you. All this "Chill out" **** is for the birds. Many, many folks make reservations at PARTICULAR campgrounds for PARTICULAR SPOTS, everyday of every year because, IT'S WHAT THEY WANT! And, without following each and every RVer who's ever made a reservation, it's hard to tell just how many, like you, have been made to take another spot. You don't make reservations, ESPECIALLY TWO YEARS IN ADVANCE, just to get there and be told, SORRY, THERE'S NOTHING WE CAN DO ABOUT IT! Well, it does sound as if they (the campground management) "tried" to quell the situation but, for whatever reason, they failed fo follow up on it. We have been told many, many times, "yes, you can have that spot, but, only from this date, to this date, as it's reserved both before and after. And, if we like what the dates were, we take the spot(s). But, when the departure date approaches, we don't wait 'till it's time and we see the folks that have reserved our spot, WE'RE GONE! Now, at this point, all we're all getting is your side of the story which, we're all assuming it true and accurate. This would presuppose, that the campground is surely at fault and, needs to get its act together, especially when REPEAT clients are involved. You plan, you get ready, you've MADE RESERVATIONS, and make the trip, only to find you DON'T GET WHAT YOU'VE BEEN GUARANTEED to get, especially after you've paid to LOCK THAT SPOT! I think this situation is DEAD WRONG. The "Chill out" factor here doesn't cut it with me. Tell the other folks, the ones in your spot to CHILL OUT while moving to another spot 'cause this one's been paid for WAAAY in advance. Now, does this happen with hotel rooms too? I mean, if you know what room you've used in past, at a given hotel, and you know why you like it, and you RESERVE it and they say, YEP, we're got you locked in for your dates, but, you arrive and they say, SORRY, WE CAN'T GET THE PREVIOUS OCCUPIERS of your room to move, even though we told them they had to be out by your arrival date, too bad. If that were the case, then why reserve anything? Now, we've also encountered campgrounds that will reserve a spot but, NOT A SPECIFIC SPOT. They'll give you a spot when you arrive but, they will not guaranty that the one you wanted will be available. You know in advance that you may, or may not get the spot you'd like to have. And, we've camped in Mammoth a few times. There are two major campgrounds in the leading edge of town, as you approach it from the 395 highway. The one on the left is a private. The one on the right is I think, either a state campground or a U.S. Forestry campground and is more or less, a non-hookup campground, if I recall. This means it's highly possible you're speaking of the one on the left. If so, yep, that campground, especially in the season, is a sought after campground and is fairly booked up for the entire season. They even have over flow parking lots that are quite often, full up. What does all this mean, you may ask? Well, it could be one of those things that, if they piss off a given amount of clients, even repeat ones, they still won't lose any business 'cause they know they'll still sell spots, even if someone does do a BAD REVIEW in any review address. Is this your situation, not a clue. And as far as this "chill out" junk, yep we do CHILL OUT, when we've gotten what we've asked for and were promised. We chill out plenty while on vacations and trips. But, there has to be some honesty and integrity in business and these campground operations. Ok, let the flaming begin, got the suit on! Scott No flaming here. I agree with you. I would not be "chillin out".

RE: At dealership fast question please Monaco or any MH

Our captain chairs were off white and our one couch was dark chocolate leather and the other was kind of a tweed fabric. The chairs matched the dashboard. We have since recovered them. Seems normal
