RE: 1999 holiday Rambler Endeavor

Doug, is yours a gas or diesel model? My references are for a diesel model.

RE: 1999 holiday Rambler Endeavor

Sounds like you looked at the panel to your left if you are sitting in the drivers seat. The panel that has the allison electronic shift control. What I was referring to in my above post is under the dash right in front of you when you're sitting in the drivers seat. On my 2000 there is a control board for the Power Gear jacks to the left of the steering colume. This control board also has about 4 fuses in it.

RE: 1999 holiday Rambler Endeavor

I am currently running a 2000 Endeavor. I have never looked for the control board for the slide out, but thought I could offer a couple of hints. The board for the Power Gear Jacks is under the dash in the area where your left foot is when sitting in the drivers seat. Maybe that board controls both or the slide board is in the same area. Another place I'd look is behind the switch for the slide in the cabinet.

RE: It’s that time again...to have some fun

When we decided to do the snowbird thing, we spent a season in Florida, the next year we spent the season in south Texas, the next year in Arizona and southern California, and finally we did a season in Mexico, mostly the San Carlos area. Now, living in the Metro Atlanta area, Florida makes the most since, but even though there were areas of Florida that we really enjoyed it wasn't our favorite. Same goes for south Texas. I liked south Padre Island and the Corpus Christi area the best, but we settled on Mexico and Arizona as our favorite areas. I think the main reason for that decisionn is the climate and traffic. We found we liked the break from the congested traffic and the nice dry arid climate. Bottom line, each area has plenty to offer a snowbird, and each person will have a different opinion as to what they prefer. I'm getting to the point where the long trip across the US to the desert SW is getting a bit more tiring every year. So soon my snowbird adventure will start being closer to home. Hello Florida.

RE: New 450 Lxi home

Had a 1991 Wanderlodge for a number of years. Bluebird made some great motorhomes and is one company I wished could have held their operation together. Anyways your fuel problem brought to mind a trip we did where we had a tail wind and we drove from Atlanta to Fargo, ND before we had to refuel. The exit was a button hook and about 2/3's of the way around the engine started missing. Luckily it came out of it and we made it to the pump. I don't recall the exact amount in gallons it took to fill the 300 gallon tank, but I do remember it was a bit over $1100.00. Mine had a Detroit 8V92. Good power but poor fuel economy..4-6mpg. When I sold it, it had over 200,000 miles on it, was still solid as a rock and ran like a top. If it would have had some slide outs I'd still be driving it.

This part of the country the barns were painted with "See Rock City" ads. Still a few of them around. By the way...if you're in the Chattanooga area, check it out.

RE: First trip in Class A driving in Smokey Mountains

My first experience with the Ford V-10 was about 5 yrs ago when I bought a used 2000 Rexhall Aerbus. I used this RV for 3 yrs and put about 30,000 miles on it driving from Atlanta to Montana, Atlanta to Arizona and Atlanta to Mexico. I consider the V-10 the best gas engine I've ever had. Lots of power, smooth running and never had any issues. On the Montana trip we were towing a 4wd Chevy Suburban. The engine had 40,000 miles on it when I bought it, a bit over 70,000 when I sold it. Changed oil every 5000 miles and never had to add between changes. The Aerbus had a 4 speed transmission, and would shift down to 3rd on most climbs, and 2nd on a few, but really didn't do that much worse then the diesels I've had. Expecting a motorhome, diesel or gas, to climb every mountain pass at speed limits speeds, is not going to happen.

RE: Cummins 5 year old synthetic oil with 1000 miles - change ?

I know very little about synthetic oil, just wondering does synthetic age or break down with age as much as real oil?
grldst 11/07/19 08:58pm Class A Motorhomes

A spare tire is just not worth the bother. I have been RVing since the mid 80's and have logged over 200,000 miles, have RVed to Alaska and Mexico and only had one blowout, and that was due to a 20 yr old tire an unscrupulous dealer stuck on the inside dual. Check your tires before every trip, replace them around the 7 yr mark and your odds of needing a spare are nil. If the odds are against you and you have a problem, due as mentioned above, make a phone call. Think about it....I can't remember even using a spare on any of my other vehicles.

RE: Class A. Wheel size

Some of the larger 19.5's will carry as much or more weight then a smaller 22.5. I have driven Class A's with both sizes, and the difference in ride in my opinion was insignificant. Please explain I have never seen a tractor trailer with a 19.5 in rim all I ever seen was 22.5 with heavy load. Rv were the only thing I ever thing Ive seen have this weird size tire rim. A 285x70Rx19.5 has a load rating of 6610 lbs A 10Rx 22.5 has a load rating of 5675 lbs I am not trying to say a 19.5 will or can carry more weight then a 22.5 tire. I am stating that on many gas chassis the option of going with a 22.5 or 19.5 tire does not have anything to do with weight carrying capacity. A 19.5 tire can safely carry the weight.

RE: A flash back today - to former member Sully!

Yeah, I remember the first time he responded to a thread I started, and I thought to myself "Who the heck is this guy"? I think in his hey day he responded to just about every thread in the Class A forum. He was not exactly the guy I would choose to handle my customer service department. He at times would come across a bit on the abrasive side, but he had a wealth of good solid information. RIP.

RE: Heading to Florida

Beings you are a beginning snowbird, I'm going to recommend you do what I did. When I decided to do the snowbird thing I spent a season checking out each snowbird area. I did one season in Florida, one season in south Texas and a season in the Southwest. I never stayed over a month in any particular RV resort or campground, usually only a week or two and moved on the the next area. Had a great time doing this and it gives you the opportunity to see what suits your needs. I never did any reservations, and still don't. If you are not particular and are not looking to stay in a definate place for a definate amount of time, reservations are not necessary. There is always some place to stay.

RE: 1987 37' Winnebago Elandan for Sale >$45,000< ??

First Class A I bought was a 1985 Elandan 32ft. I bought in 1988. It had a 454 chevy engine. Pretty nice RV as I recall, drove nice and rode nice. I remember the price being $32,000.00.

RE: MH accident in gas station!

Isn't that a temp tag on the RV. Might be a pretty inexperienced driver. Easy mistake to make when you're new at driving one of these things.

RE: Help with full timing over the winter

When we retired we did a winter season in Florida, next year in South Texas, next year in desert southwest (Arizona and California) and one season in Mexico. My personal preferences....Florida, I like the North Central area, South Texas, Port Aransas Corpus Christi area, California the Glamas sand dunes area, Arizona Yuma in December and January and Lake Havasu and Parker areas later. . Mexico, San Carlos. Each area has something unique and interesting to offer. Best thing to do is take your time and check them all out.

RE: Seriously looking at a late 90's HR Endeavor

I am currently running a 2000 Endeavor with the CAT 3126B Freightliner chassis. It currently has 82,000 miles and have had no major issues and few issues of any sort. Over the yrs I have had 8 different class A’ s. 4 gas and 4 diesels. Cummins or Cat will make little difference in this scenario. Cat may have a bit more power. The Endeavor is a good basic mid line diesel motorhome. The ride and handling are very good and near exceptional for an RV in this range. Fit and finish better then avg. In my opinion you are making a good choice.

RE: CAT 3126B

I was born and raised in the north, moved to Georgia and have lived there for thirty years. Language terminology is different in the south In the south if a vehicle won’t crank, it means it won’t start.
