RE: Run Flat on back dually

Another Item to add to my list of things to check when buying a used RV. Look at ALL the date codes of every tire including the inside duals. They were 9 years old. others are 4. New tires in the works.

RE: Run Flat on back dually

They matched the Michelins for the new tire so I will buy the same tire For the steer wheels. Michelins Xrv 235 80 22.5. May change out the backs based on date codes with something else. I really not unhappy with the tires. Hold air no weatherchecking Think I blew it out by running over a wood pallet.

Run Flat on back dually

Had the oil changed and when they checked the tires the back inside dually was flat. Tire was check and deemed unusable. Could have been flat a while. I should be more proactive on checking the inside tires. You may chastise me for that if you wish:) Anyway I had the trucking shop put a new tire on the dually in back and then I started reading that that may not have been the best option. My thought is I would have to buy another tire put both new ones on the steer tires and the fronts on the back since the new tire has much more tread depth it could cause issues. Use the tire that wasn't flat but was handling most of the weight as a spare. Is that the right thing to do? I'm checking the date codes to see how old the other tires are, but I think they are about 4 years old.

RE: hydraulic leveling jack replace / rebuild

I have a 2002 Alegro Bay 35db . I had a hydraulic company repair 3 of them. About 1000 dollars. Seals were bad. Waiting for the other one to go now:) They have to break the weld on the jack and re weld to change the seals from what I understand

Tow dolly empty - 1500 miles

I have a situation that I could either rent a uhaul car dolly or take mine on a 1500 mile trek. It would not have a car on it. I realize I would reduce tire pressure on the car dolly. Just wondering if anyone has done this. I’m guessing it would be hard on the car dolly, but not sure.

RE: Possibly upgrading from TT to Class A

Tiffin makes a great motorhome. Went from a 33 foot trailer to 35 foot motorhome(see sig). Less room for sure, but in my opinion the layout fit my needs better. They are expensive to fix if you can't do it yourself. Hard to find people to fix the chassis on older motorhomes I've had mine for a couple years after running the gamut of rv's. Figure about 20% of the purchase price to fix stuff that's wrong with it. Awnings, Jacks, flooring, fluid changes ect. If you need tires you can add to that number. It's a great way to travel though.

stop over North of Birmingham

Looking at my return trip from Fl. Going to make a stop somewhere north of Birmingham Al and south of the Tennessee border. Looking for campgrounds close to 65. Ive heard good reviews about Texas T, but they are a couple more hours than I would like to drive. I would also consider hotels that took dogs with RV parking pulling a car. Look on several sites, but was inquiring about places that people stopped at on the forum. Thank you.

RE: Time for New Floors, Anyone with Pics of New Wood Floors

RE: Workhorse - No Start (Problem and Solved)

You can flop the relays with the air conditioner right next to it if it's a bad relay, but if the female pins in the fuse box are worn it may not work without bending the pins on the relay to get a good fit. I hate stuff that doesn't start. going to have to learn how to cross the solenoid. Of course the refrigerator cooling unit crapped out when we got south. Hey cost of having fun!

I did post this in the breakdown forum just sharing for anyone with an older motorhome with workhorse chassis RV particulars 2002 Allegro Bay Driveline Workhorse 24K Allison 8.1 Miles:83000 Year:2002 Break Down Description: No start Symptoms: No Start in front of my house ready to travel. Started 5 times the same day. Effect: No Cranking just silence. Cause: Starter relay female connectors in the fuse box are worn. Outcome: Call roadside since it was so cold (polar vortex) the hood wouldn't open. 986 dollar tow bill. Thank goodness for roadside assistance. (Sunday 30 mile tow) Had to bend pins on the starter relay for better connection. Until the connectors in fuse box can be replaced.

RE: Headed south for just two weeks

Have fun on your road trip. Be safe take your time and enjoy the journey! Check out that entire coast. Make a stop at siesta key, St Petes Beach. Yes I am stuck in the driveway, but as my father always told me "you should have a problem".

RE: Using a tow dolly

Most likely your accord can be towed on a tow dolly. I'd still look it up. For my tow dolly the steering wheel is required to be looked. Can't help you with other tow dollies. Mine is a Johnson trailer tow dolly which is very similar to the Master Tow. You don't put the car in neutral since its a front wheel drive.

RE: Time for New Floors, Anyone with Pics of New Wood Floors

I haven't noticed the noise difference. In a 2002 motorhome a lot of other noises are more prevalent:) In my case I used carpet in the front cab area anyway. They had a sound barrier under the carpet up there as well.

RE: Time for New Floors, Anyone with Pics of New Wood Floors

Luxury Vinyl Plank Flooring. Removed the glued down tiles and all carpeting. Replaced bedroom and front cab area with new carpeting. The vinyl is thinner than the carpeting so no real issues. I did not do the slideout carpeting. or under the slideout. https://i.imgur.com/uCWU6cxl.jpg https://i.imgur.com/EKOMJDtl.jpg https://i.imgur.com/ndMPVQ0l.jpg https://i.imgur.com/Dx7I0QXl.jpg https://i.imgur.com/RT30IQ4l.jpg https://i.imgur.com/bpCfT7gl.jpg https://i.imgur.com/ZMIhPUFl.jpg

RE: Carrying 2 bikes - Motorhome and Car Dolly

Just didn't know If I'd have room between the car and the back of the motorhome and put two bikes between them. Also didn't know if the 10" drop hitch with the hitch extension would be ok.. Thank you for your input it looks like a good option
