RE: Which old motorhome to buy

We are full timing in a 1999 National Tradewinds which requires a tweak now and then but is very solid and comfortable for us. Check out PPL in Texas. They sometimes have an older model coach that might fit what you are looking for.

Consider looking on the PPL website.

RE: Window fog

Had my two front windows repaired at RV Fog Doc in Searcy, Arkansas. Parked at their shop the night before. They took it in first thing the next morning and we were on the road by three that afternoon. They have several electric hookups at their shop which you can use. I was very happy with the job. May have others worked on at a later date.

RE: Help/ Fresh Water Tank

An R V Tech came out and discovered there were two forty-five gallon tanks but only one was damaged so he pulled out the damaged tank and replumed the undamaged tank to supply water to the Bus. The damaged tank blew apart and split almost a third of the way down the top. Now I have one 45 gal of fresh water on board instead of 90. That should work fine.

RE: honda

The last Honda year that can be towed four down is the 2014 model year. All newer Hondas have the CVT transmission and cannot be towed without damaging the transmission. There are other models that can be towed such as the Equinox, some Fords and of course Jeeps among others. Check the Dingy Towing Guides and I would always want to check the cars manual which is in the glove box Good luck on your quest. Safe travels. Arnold

RE: Too old to drive ?

I am now 81 and we are full timing in our MH. I believe I will continue driving as long as I am comfortable in all traffic situations. Key for me is to always be aware of my surroundings and don't get in a bind with the traffic. We want to continue to enjoy the road in a safe manner. Each individual must decide whether you can travel safely and by your driving skills keep all others on the road with you safe also. Happy travels. Arnold

RE: Help/ Fresh Water Tank

We are full time in our RV and the fresh water tank was being used in place of the supply hose which froze up. I was not aware the fresh water tank was not receiving enough heat since it is forward of the last heated bay from the steps to the generator. Anyway, what is done is done and nothing can happen to repair/replace it until it gets warmer. Once it warms up, I can hook up the hose again and try to look at the damage. My thanks to schlep1967 for the info on replacement tanks. I have started an insurance report and will await their help with the solution. Just another hiccup. Arnold

Help/ Fresh Water Tank

Late afternoon yesterday at 5 degrees above zero I heard a loud bang and observed a great amount of water pouring out from under the RV. Despite having two 1500 watt heaters and two fans circulating heat in the basement, I'm afraid my fresh water tank has bit the dust. Too cold now to check but I need your help. I am quite certain I will be trying to find a replacement but that may not be possible for a 1999 National Tradewinds 7370. Has anyone any ideas and what about a fiberglass repair? I'm not sure how I might get it out or what the heck I am going to do. This will be a fun project. For those of you who might be interested, I will post solution. Happy travels. Arnold

RE: Heated bays

Supposed to get down to 0 here tomorrow night. I am using a 1500K heater with a fan to move air in the bay. I am trusting that will be sufficient. I would not be concerned about 27 degrees since my bay usually stays about 5-7 degrees warmer than the outside temp. Best to you Happy travels. Arnold

RE: Window fog

Had my two front side windows repaired by RV Fog Doc in Searcy Arkansas. Pulled up the night before and they took the coach in at 8 and had it out by 3. Price was $529.00. I am happy with results. Someday I may get others done but front side windows were making it difficult to see out of side mirrors so I chose to have them worked on first. Call them, tell them what you are driving and they will give you a pretty close ball park estimate. Happy travels. Arnold

RE: Need new 245/70R19.5 tires, Thnking Sumitomo?

I would check around again for price. I had 6 Sumitomos 245/75/22.5 put on in 2018 for $1860 out the door (mounting, balancing and tax included). $2700 for a smaller tire seem a bit high. Best of luck. Happy travels. Arnold

RE: Need new 245/70R19.5 tires, Thnking Sumitomo?

I am running Sumitomo all around on my Bus and have been very happy with them They ride well and handle the road fine. They were also the best price of all the tires I looked at this time. I have also run Toyo which I liked. For me, price helps make the choice and I steer away from Goodyear because of harsh ride and Michelin because of price. Just my opinion. Happy Travels Arnold
