RE: 5 figure 30 foot

Whatever RV I've had I was looking for the next one:) I would buy a used gasser class A like tiffin, Newmar or other good quality brands. I too don't like the depreciation. I'd rather put in 5000 dollars in fixing something on mine instead of having the 5000 disappear in depreciation (or more). Just seems like I'm getting something. I know money is money. Now I'm looking at a used pusher, but I'm taking my time and pretty sure what I want. Just want to get a good price because I know that it will need tires, batteries, windows fixed, etc,ect,ect. plus depreciation. Even in an older coach just not as much. My wife could drive mine if she had to. She is a good driver and in a car she doesn't mind it. I'm not sure she would drive any rv even though she thinks she might. I just have to remind her I don't want to drive more than 6 hours at a time. I've driven pushers with air ride. Could probably drive them farther, but I know they would be easier to drive 6 hours. Motorhomes are expensive to maintain. Much more than your current setup, but it is the best way to travel IMHO

RE: Workhorse W22, Chevy 8.1l exhaust rattle/noise

Yes. Hopefully it's a shield. Known for exhaust manifold bolts breaking.

RE: Battery Question

Good idea about the knife switch. I'll try that. Thank you

Battery Question

Yes I know. Another battery questions. I have a 2002 tiffin Allegro Bay and had a question about chassis and house battery. I have not run it for about a month as I have in the past. When I went to start the motorhome the chassis and house batteries were dead. I had the 12 volt disconnect switch switched. I knew that since none of the lights in the rv worked. I was surprised that the starting battery was dead. If I left the radio on (its hot wired to the battery) would that drain the deep cycles as well? looks like they are all hooked in parallel. I know if I had the inside lights on in the rv it wouldn't drain the starting battery, but was wondering on the chassis 12volt side whether it would drain the deep cycles. Like if I left the headlights on?

RE: 2003 National Tradewinds

It certainly sounds like a steering box issue. You had it replaced it should have fixed the issue. So don't worry.

RE: SPARE TIRE

Some of the motorhome tires are not made all year. Had the same issue with 235 80r 22.5 Michelins. Went with a different size that was built by other manufactures.

RE: Heading to Florida

I was in Panama City Beach last year and stayed at the Panama City Beach Resort. They had very little damage at the resort. Panama City isn't too bad. Surrounding areas are devastated But as you drive there you will still see the damage. It will be years before that area recovers. Destin and points west did not have damage. St Andrews park in Panama City Beach about 200 sites had 30 open last march. Good luck on your travels! Nice thing about an rv if you don't like where you're at you just move.

RE: Bad Ground wire taillights Dim

Thanks for everyone's help. (used the self tapping screw and extension cord ideas) That was the ground for the taillights or at least something that affected the voltage of the lights. I am at almost 11.5 volts now. Even when I run the ground right off the battery. I get the same voltage. Looks like a controller unit for the 7 pin connector was added at one time which may be the problem. Again thanks for the help.

RE: Bad Ground wire taillights Dim

Do self drilling screws go through plate steel?

RE: Bad Ground wire taillights Dim

not sure about the black wire. Noticed it too, but didn't see a black wire anywhere down there. I think black is hot on a rv...maybe? The wiring on these things don't seem to make any sense to me, but I'm not an expert on wiring.

RE: Bad Ground wire taillights Dim

I measured across the bulb. Tried to run a find a spot on the frame for a good ground, but didn't have anything with me to get the paint/rust off. Didn't have 40 feet or so of wire either to connect to the battery. This bolt probably won't turn off anyway. Have to cut and drill it out I imagine. Maybe before I do that I'll cut the insulation back on the wires a little and wrap a wire around it and bring it to the front for a good ground and see if it makes a difference before I start cutting bolts. Leaving town in a couple weeks and don't want to make too many fixes before I hit the road:) Thank you for your help in identifying the ground for me.

Bad Ground wire taillights Dim

So I'm doing troubleshooting for my dim tail lights. My meter indicates about 10.5 volts at the taillights. I think I know where the ground wire is, but not the color I expected at the assembly. only white wire I have is going to the backup lights. Thought I'd have more. Black and dark blue wires. Inside I'm reading 12 volts. Anyway does this look like the ground for the taillights its located on the hitch so I'm not sure if its for the hitch wiring or the coach. Probably would be difficult to trace it back. Just wondering for people who had to fix ground wires if this is what it looks like. https://i.imgur.com/PogmXzll.jpg

RE: 2 Years with a Older Class A

Think all tiffins are fiberglass roofs.

Maybe a little OCD instead of "higher standards" :)

RE: 2 Years with a Older Class A

I guess maybe just a little bad luck:) I'll stay away from the lottery for a while. Using them definitely helps.

RE: 2 Years with a Older Class A

Lot of upfront costs when buying an older used coach. Sometimes things just happen like refrigerators. Hopefully year 3 I'm around that 2500 mark.

2 Years with a Older Class A

Not sure why I'm posting this, but maybe it will help people looking at a class A. Now realize I'm one of those people who make sure everything works and takes care of his stuff. I don't like anything that doesn't work. I also like everything relatively clean. My costs over two years for people looking into the class A world. Your costs may vary. Guess one good thing is I don't have any deprecation costs. Class a is the best way to travel! Jacks 1000 Flooring 500 (did myself) Fluids 600 Awnings- Slideouts 700 Tires 2500 Refigerator 1800 Batteries 200 Starter 550 Air Conditioner seal 125 Sky Light 125 Starting issue -Winter 2018 100 Oil Changes 200 Faucets 150 Spray Paint 30 Telivisions 200 Varnish 25 Total 8900 I'm hoping for 3 more years with reduced costs:)

RE: Tire question 235 80 22,5

Thank you for your input. It is appreciated. I decided on Falkens RI151 for the drive tires. 245/75r/ 22.5. Michelin 235/80r 22.5 on the front. I felt the 255 may have been too big of a jump as well. Had to have one Michelin replaced so I just got one more and am using them for the steer tires. Overall about 900 saved. If I had a new coach and planned on keeping it for 5 more years I probably would have gotten Michelins and kept everything the same.

Tire question 235 80 22,5

Getting ready to put new tires on. Mine are 7 years old. May move to a different tire. What is your size preference. Not brand. 245 75 22.5 or 255 80 22.5 Not sure which works out better. Workhorse chassis
