RE: Thor ACE 27.1 - used (2015 or 16) gripes or praises?

I has an 2017 ACE 29.3 for a season and a half. We wanted to down size from a 35' 5th wheel. Well we down sized to much! For weekend trips the ACE would be ok but for longer trips 3-4 weeks there just was not enough storage space. Space for cloths, food that type of things. The out side bays really had no room also at least for the important items. We ended up getting out of the ACE for our older DP with more space than we can fill up. Now for the quality. All of the appliances are the same as every other unit on the road. The ACE has a lot of just little things to save money. Our paneling kept coming off the studs. In stead of staples I put them back with screws. The workmanship just was not there. To get to a water heater value I had to remove a piece of panneling under the sink. One would have thought a little access door or something would have been nice. One of our biggest complaints was the black holding tank was only 26 gal. we could deal with that sort of. But then found out the bathroom sink drained into the black tank. Would I buy another one most likely not

RE: Non-level campsites Class A

On my rig the "auto level" has a hard time when the pad is not even close to level its self. Manual level you can adjust the rig so as not to have the wheels off the ground. I never raise the rear wheels off the ground. They are your brakes and and your stability for the rig. If I have to raise the front off the ground I put either wood or legos between the tire and the ground. Good Luck

RE: Clearstream 2 Amplified RV antenna

Very interested in this post will be following. Looked on their web site the antenna looks very interesting at best. I just wonder how directional it is.

RE: Where to get steering alignment done for a class A?

You may want to find folks that work on tour busses. The reason I say that is here in Branson MO is a great place for all chassis work. They started out mainly for tour busses and are now more RV chassis folks. They have an alignment set up for larger busses etc. Good Luck

RE: Pet peeve, neighbors leave porch light on

I am with you on that 100%. I hate to turn the porch light on to take the dog out.

RE: Used class a

I traded an 2017 Thor product for a 2007 Itasic Meridian 36 DP. The Meridian is brother from different mother to the journey. As for the tv thing, I could be wrong but the years you are looking at that was the style. Ours is up front and really its not a neck breaker as my wife all so has neck problems and has never made a comment about the location of the tv. Our Meridian has the cat c7 350, its not a big diesel but it does get me where I want to go. We traveled all over the canyons this past may. UT, AZ, CO pulling a KIA on tow dolly with no problem it handled all climbs very well. The Meridian as do other Winnebago products has the fiberglass roof. They do require maintenance just like everything RV. Good Luck

RE: has anyone stayed at:

I think about 3 years ago we stayed there and will never ever return. If I remember just getting to the correct road to enter the park was a challenge. At the time I have a 35' 5th wheel and reserved a pull thru site. The sites were so tight and the corners entering and leaving the site were almost impossible to navigate. If the person next to me (end site) had not left I would not have been able to get out. We paid for cable and there was not cable, answer in the office was we are working on it. Stayed there 4 nights and it seems they were working on it when we left. Good Luck safe travels

RE: Black Eye

I feel for the truck driver as they are working and need to get to the job etc. A few years back I was traveling up to Door County Wi doing the speed limit and there was a logging semi behind me. He was just not happy with me going to speed limit, he finially found a place to pass and boy did he there was no speed limit for him. This year I traveled up I70 in CO going east and many many years back I remember semis moving all the way over to the right shoulder to help keep the other semis moving at good rpms. Boy this does not happen now I had to slow down once and thought I would never get the rpms up. So my point is the world is changing, sit back and relax. We may not like what we see but then do we really know the reason.

RE: Help for Unreliable combo brake turn signal light on trailer

When I had a 5th wheel, I had rear light issues that drove me nuts. It seemed the problem was related to the ground wire. I ended up removing the light can and soldering all the wire connections. I also tighted up the light bulb connection. If you are using the 1157 bulb its just sitting in the correct spot by a hope and a prayer. You may have to rework that area also. Good Luck

RE: Motor coach with bunks recommendations for family

I had a Thor ACE 29.3 for a season and a half. Traded as we found out it did not have enough storage for extended trips. Heres my thoughts, yes the ACE is rated as a starter MH. With that being said all of the components i.e. frig, stove, plumbing are the same in it as in all other MH. Its the workman ship that leave alot to be desired. These are my neg. comments about the ACE. The black tank was only 29gal and the bath sink drained into it. This caused the tank to need emptying very often. It also was plumbed that a 90 angle was at the bottom of toilet so everything had to turn right away. This caused a poop mountain at the base of the toilet. I always had a problem with the water supply getting to the bath side of the camper. My kitchen was on the long slide as was the water inlet. For some reason the water line to the bath would kink, never did solve the problem. Dollars for dollars the ACE was a good unit, drove nice enough power to deal with mountains. Things I would look at, storage inside cause not much outside. The large room slide can become problems make sure it works and learn about how to work it. Its important to keep the motors insink. Good Luck safe travels

RE: Hot water tank drain plug

When I got my used coach the past owner replaced the nylon plug with a brass set up that included a petcock to drain the tank. The first chance I got I replaced it with the good old nylon plug. The reason I could not clean out the tank. At the end and beginning of each season I like to really flush out the tank to remove any debris.

RE: I need a new wingard traveler antenna for TV

I think here is a good place to ask Google for help. There seems to be a few mobile RV folks in the area. That or call RV dealers in the area for help they may have folks that could help you out. Good Luck safe travels

RE: Planning a trip to southeastern Oklahoma

I know Jet OK is not is the SE part of OK more like North Central. BUT if you have never dug for sand crystals this needs to be on your bucket list. Its a great "free" time https://www.onlyinyourstate.com/oklahoma/crystal-digging-ok/

RE: Just experienced our first Non-refundable campground

Randot, I posted a commit just about like yours last year when I had to cancel a site due to covid, where I was going was for all purposes closed. The RV park would not refund my money (full payment) and wanted to charge me 50 to change date. When I posted I got the same response you are getting. I know I was out a little over $300.00, guess that amount does not phase folks. Good Luck safe travels

RE: How to change a latch bolt in a 2000 winnebago

I am not sure if your latch is like mine in an 07 Itasca Meridian or not. Mine the latch part is a white plastic piece that is spring loaded and when shut latches to the side. Much like a home door does. I had one break and had to replace. Drill out the two rivets holding the latch to the side of the door. There is a metal hook that attaches the latch part to the handle part. This can be reached by unscrewing the cover over the handle part. You should then be able to unhook the old and put in the new. Again this is how mine is not sure about yours.

RE: 2006 Holiday Rambler 40PDQ How to start the Air Conditioners

Lets start with the back up camera. Are you wanting it on while just siting or with motor running. If just sitting I do not believe it will come on. As for when coach is running a lot more info is needed to help, the model of display that type of thing. No the slide does not need to be out for ac to work. The remaining items. Are you plugged into shore power or not? Do any of the 12v items work, i.e. lights that type of stuff. My first thought was the battery disconnect switch was in the off position. Then I re-read and you said the batteries were turned on. When you move the disconnect switch do you hear a clicking sound? If not maybe the switch is bad. You most likely have more than one switch for the water pump. does it work from any of the switches? There is an in line fuse somewhere near the pump that may not be any good. Good Luck

RE: Leveling Jack Pads/Slide Out Supports

It a great idea to always carry jack pads of some sort with you. They are mainly used for soft ground or like stated when the park requires it. After using both wood planks and the lego type blocks, both of which I had problems with. I ended up getting level pads from big foot and boy are they special and great. https://www.outriggerpads.com/ I also way back 4 rigs ago thought I needed those slide out supports. I bought a pair, there great for holding things up in my work shed. Nothing about them is good for and RV stay away from them period! Good luck stay safe
