RE: Bob Quinn Lake, BC

I suspect that the pit is for the use of the highways contractor come winter. I can't imagine that anyone is going to say anything about an RV set-up overnighting, especially in the North. Gary Haupt

RE: Emergency start button......?

My 99 Triple E doesn't have one, so I had a electrical by-pass installed. A marine switch in the battery bay. Gary Haupt

RE: Need someone to drive a 22 ft Winnebago

If the first offer fails...give me a shout. I live in BC. I would drive to you...then drive your RV to destination and fly back to the original location and drive back home. 37 years pro driving and now retired. hauptgw@gmail.com Gary Haupt

RE: Anyone know how rear air bags work

You have to fill yours manually...there is an option. One I took. Mine too, came with valve stems. Still there. I had the air bag compressor installed. Gauge on the plastic stuff under the dash with the control buttons..one on each side. Looks down right spiffy..plus, I don't have to stand out in the weather to check and fill..and I can do it as roll. https://www.google.com/search?client=firefox-b-d&q=air+bag+compressor Gary Haupt

RE: Using Furnace While Driving

I have no idea of the complexities involved, but...my '99 E 350 Triple E Regal has ducting to provide an engine heater outlet in back..plus a separate fan motor. It might well be worth looking into. Gary Haupt You would think all manufacturers would run at least one duct back but most don't - at least mine didn't. Would be even better if you could open that vent and close the ones in the cab so you don't get run out of the cab. Man..I was sooo wrong. Triple E's had an optional winter package that included a rear mounted heater/fan. Not ducting from front heating system.

RE: Using Furnace While Driving

The simplest is a ‘bus heater’, to a self-contained heater with fan that runs off the heater line from the engine. The name comes from the fact that they were created to warm the rear of school buses. On a lot of motorhomes they have an electric switch on the dash marked “coach heater” which is just remote power to a bus heater buried in a cabinet somewhere down the back. They’re a really easy DIY project. Maybe that's what I have...a "bus heater'..as opposed to separate ducting. I shall investigate. Gary

RE: Best Used Class C's? Rank your top five.

When we were shopping for a good used or new Class C back in 2005-2006 I ran across a used slideless 2004 24 foot Bigfoot Class C. I had studied them pretty thoroughly and really thought that I wanted to go with one ... however at the last minute I discovered a gotcha in that used Bigfoot. The shower was not tall enough for me to stand up in it .... for some stupid design reason!!! Our E450 24 foot Itasca does not have that problem, plus does not have a lot of other problems and poor design issues that I read about in the forums regarding other Class C brands and model years. The bad news is, Winnebago quit producing this model and feature-set in about 2006 or 2007. About the only Winnebago Class C offering in a small footprint that I would consider today would be their 22M on the optional Ford E450 chassis -> other than I can't buy into the 22M having a slide due to our off-highway camping need for overall reliability and ruggedness. Man..a low shower design? Was the RV interior tall enough for you. One of the things of my Triple E Regal...tall enough for my 6'2" handsome height. Gary

RE: Class C roof damage

I did but still wasn't sure. Fair enough. If you are wanting more info than what you could glean from the search I sent, perhaps do a Google search for dealers in your area and go and chat with them. Gary

RE: Class C roof damage

What is a Rhino liner? I am guessing you could have Googled it...? https://www.google.com/search?client=firefox-b-d&ei=__i1XJ7GIsGX0gKx2o64CA&q=rhino+liner&oq=rhino+liner&gs_l=psy-ab.1.0.0l10.9512.9979..11809...0.0..0.78.146.2......0....1..gws-wiz.......0i71j0i13.QZfNkSCdlYI Gary

RE: Class C roof damage

What does this mean-- 'shoot a whole new membrane.' Thanks. Rhino liner is a mixed product. It is prepared acording to the customers design..wants/needs...how much flex. The application is referred to as 'shooting it'. https://www.youtube.com/results?search_query=shooting+rhino+liner Gary

RE: Class C roof damage

You 'could' rip up the damaged roof material, lay down new plywood and then do a Rhino Liner cover over the new plywood. One 'could' also rip up all the plywood and shoot a whole new membrane. Then pull down the damaged interior and repair. I also have to add....I hope that you intend to disclose any and all damage to a potential buyer. Gary Haupt

RE: Legal to tow this combination in Alaska

Yeah....guy from Texas makes such a great suggestion. It always takes me by surprise when some goof suggests breaking a law in Canada and no-one raises an eyebrow. Make a similar suggestion about breaking a US/state law and the world is about to end. "Worst case if you get stopped would be simply disconnect the SUV and continue on your way. And hook back up an hour down the road." Gary Haupt

RE: Looking for an RV solar vendor in So Cal

This may not be what you wanting to do..or go to...but Mike is fabulous. People drive to the Slabs just for him to do install. I had him install a 125 and wire it to my existing and have had 7 years trouble free. http://www.thesunworks.com/ Gary Haupt

Rv's are the new housing.

I hesitate to post this...however, it is the way things are, in many places now. The article is written with California as the focal point, but it applies across the board. Worldwide.

RE: Night stops with RV

Perhaps I misunderstood the "night Germans" comment. I thought it was referring to those that come in after dark...like, at midnight...after the last of the Ranger patrols...and then leave before the first of the Ranger look-see's in the morning, thus avoiding paying the camping fees. And further..it is in no way only Europeans. Lots of N/A folks are doing this too. Gary

RE: Night stops with RV

I ran into a new phenomenon last fall camping in Yosemite. There are young people that are out all day in their cars driving around. They must go out to dinner. They show up at dark only to sleep and leave early in the morning. They are sleepers not campers. There is another group we called the "night Germans." They have foreign cars and wear Adidas track suits. They only are there at night. We got a "gutten morgen" out of them and they were gone. A lot of people in both groups show up in the dark and set up their tents with the use of their headlights. They were relatively quiet, but the headlights are annoying. I have never seen this level of popularity of sleeping but not camping. I have seen this often...and last trip in Red Rocks State Park in Nevada. They roll in after dark..set up...sleep...and are out the gate just before the morning Ranger patrol arrives. (I was parked at a view point for sunrise and it was a race out to beat the Ranger) Although I avoid campgrounds like the plague, what I never do is crawl into a cg, use the services and scoot out, not paying. That is theft. Gary
