RE: Easy fill up near Richmond

I 3rd the FJ at 104. Heading south you make a right at the end of the ramp. Turn left at the next light. I have been in the RV pumps with a 38' RV towing a 28' trailer. Depending the time you hit Richmond you may consider staying on 95. 295 is quite a few miles out of the way and hilly. The road was rough the last time I traveled it also. But it is the way to go if traveling thru rush hours.

RE: Rand McNally In-Dash GPS

I had the same issue with the Infotainment dash unit. The only way I got it to just have GPS audio is to Pause playback if on DVD or iPOD. Overall the unit is OK but like so many other things nowadays it appears to be designed by someone that has never used the device in real world conditions. Just advertising gimmick that it has 450 functions.

RE: Brag about your deal on your Tiffin diesel.

MSRP = Manufactures Suggested Retail Price If a dealer has a made up dealer price for a coach, you need to run not walk away from there.

RE: EZpass help please

A word of advice. Stay off the Pa. Turnpike if you have anything more than a car. It is BIG BIG BIG $$$ anywhere on it with a MH. And most of the road is either in construction with 40MPH speed limit or is so rough you will want them to pay you.

RE: Norcold class action suite

Class actions were created by lawyers for lawyers. They are the ONLY ones who benefit fully from a class action.

RE: Motorhome parked in driveway

I can certainly see the need for the law also. Too many people are just total slobs that have no respect for their property or the property values and visual appeal of their neighbors. I have no problem with someone parking an RV or trailer in their driveway or side yard but then the next house has 2 abandoned pop ups covered with blue tarps and 3 junk cars. The next with 3 rusted boat trailers and a junk pontoon. The next has 3 rusting trucks and some other stuff covered with blue tarps. And on and on. Maybe it would be a good compromise if you could get them to allow 1 boat or RV per property. That would help property values but not affect the RV owners.

RE: RV Garage Design Help

Make it 50' deep in case you go to a 45' some day. Make the door layout and interior width so you can open the slideouts and awnings and still have space to walk around.

RE: Nexus Phantom 32 SC

az99 - Like most comparisons there are trade-offs. For me the Super C pros are; - A massive engine and body structure in front of me instead of a short area of fiberglass - Less worry about a flying stone hitting a huge windshield - Several things are easier to reach while driving, i.e. sunvisor, things on the dash - Like having the cab door for easier exit - Seems more natural having the steer wheels out in front instead of under or slightly behind me - The road seems wider since I am sitting closer to it - The rig seems narrower since the cab portion is not as wide (Those 2 characteristics lets my wife feel confident enough to drive it) - Feel less concern over possible breakdowns since more truck repair places would welcome me On the con side; - The ride seems harsh compared to the air suspension - The noise level is much greater than the DP Those are the main things of concern relative to driving. Since I have made the commitment to a Super C, I am required (by my wife) to say I prefer driving it. :)Thanx for that in depth comparison. What about the actual driving? Like passing trucks,wind,grooved road,bridge humps and side to side rolling?

RE: Nexus Phantom 32 SC

RichNewcome- Since you have had a DP and a truck which do you prefer to drive down the highway? Assuming all other features were equal. Just the drive down the highway. Thanx

RE: Tile Floors and Cold Weather

Mr. Al, we didn't have heated floors in our 'tiled' coach and didn't really miss something we didn't have. The little electric heater seemed to work well. Now that the new coach has heated wood floors, it's amazing. We were in 8 degree weather back in December heading West through NM and AZ at higher elevation. It's amazing how the heated floors maintained interior temp. At night, I don't like to have anything on if possible, especially, our diesel fired furnace. I like things as quiet as possible. Your wife will love heated floors. MM.She does love heated floors. We have them in our S&B. That is the reason the question came up. :) When I kept seeing all the big$ coaches advertising tile floors and hydronic heat, I assumed it was radiant floor heating.

RE: What to buy in a 40'-45' with tag ?

Thanx for all the suggestions of used Bluebirds and Prevosts but as the OP said I am looking for a new 40'-45' tag axle. In the neighborhood of Dutch Star pricing and trim level. I know used is in many cases a better way to buy a MH but I always become a sucker for the latest bells and whistles.:)

RE: What to buy in a 40'-45' with tag ?

I honestly don't believe any 'run of the mill' coach is built that much different than each other. Just my opinion. Tiffin, Winnebago, Newmar, Fleetwood, Monaco..... all are built about same in their given price ranges. They pretty much use the same venders for everything. I disagree. There is nothing wrong with the materials used. It is who and how it is used. When companies reward their workers by how fast things are done and have no QC, the materials used in a Prevost would net the same result at the end of the assembly line. Thanx for your recommendation.

RE: Tile Floors and Cold Weather

We were just really surprised that anyone spending the big $ that the units cost with tile floors would not demand floor heat under tile. Anyone in a cool to cold climate would certainly have floor heat under tile in an equally priced new sticks and bricks. We just assumed it was there. It is certainly on DW's must have list. If I am going to spend all the money to haul that heavy, pretty tile up and down the road I am not going to cover it with carpets so my feet are not cold. :)

RE: What to buy in a 40'-45' with tag ?

If I were looking for a regular coach, they just received a 2015 Entegra with only 3,200 miles, four slides, etc. If there is nothing wrong with it, for $299,000, I would be all over that coach. MM.I have had 2 Jaycos. Both of them the quality was horrendous. Never again no matter how they try to rename them.

RE: Tile Floors and Cold Weather

Why don't they put heat under them? Tile is a very uncomfortable surface to be on when it is not warm. No one would put tile in their home without heat under it in a cold climate.

RE: What to buy in a 40'-45' with tag ?

Anyone like any of the Tiffins in that price range?

Tile Floors and Cold Weather

Since all new coaches seem to use tile for flooring and many don't seem to use underfloor heat, what do you do to keep your feet warm?Nothing worse than walking on a cold tile floor. Do the electric optional heat pads seem to work?

RE: What to buy in a 40'-45' with tag ?

There is absolutely NO WAY I would ever buy a motorhome at the Hershey show!!! I would rather travel 600 to 1100 miles or more to a reputable dealer.Me either. I just meant to be able to look and compare models all in one place.

RE: What to buy in a 40'-45' with tag ?

Where is your dealer for American around Allentown? We are not far from there. My wife likes them.

RE: What to buy in a 40'-45' with tag ?

I see that you are in PA, and that is a downfall for us looking for the bigger tag axle coaches. I am on my third coach in ten years and have gone south to find them and bring them back to PA. Enjoy your search!!That is the truth. I can't even find a DS within 200 miles of us. But we always have the Hershey show. When we are in Fla. there are several dealers down there.
