RE: need new tires

We have used Hankook, Toyo and Sumitoma tires in the past 20 years and have been happy with each. I do not care for Goodyear because, in my opinion, they ride too harshly and Michelin because they are too expensive for me.. Look for any of these brands at the best price mounted, balanced and out the door. Best of luck in your selection. Happy travels. Arnold

RE: MH models with the fewest slides

We are full-timing in a 37ft. 1999 National Tradewinds with one slide (couch and dinette). We've owned it since 2003 and have traveled to all 48 lower states, Canada and Alaska and have never thought the coach was not adequate for our needs. Wishing you success in your search. Happy travels. Arrnold

RE: Time to replace windshield /side curtains

My wife bought some similar material as the old curtains and cut and sewed new ones for our Bus. They look great. The cost for the new ones was much less than buying them from CW,

RE: Dinghy Towing guide

I am towing the last model year Honda CR-V that can be flat towed. That is a 2014 model. In 2015 they changed to the CV transmission which CANNOT be flat towed. Hope this clears up the CR-V information about towing it as a dingy. Arnold

Bleu Ridge Parkway

Has any one traveled the Blue Ridge Parkway south out of Ashville, N C? in a motorhome? If so, how far? Am looking to travel back to Texas and see some scenery on the way. Thanks for the help. Happy Travels. Arnold.

Best Route through the Smokies

Looking for advice going from Gatlinburg to Ashville NC. Anyone made that trip and know of the best road? Is 441 across the Smokies any good for a Diesel Pusher with Toad? Planning for the summer-fall of 2020. Thanks for any advice. Arnold, Happy travels.

RE: Air brakes on Towed

I have used M & G on three different cars in the past 17 years without incident. Each one has been fitted with break away system for safety. Easy to hook up and unhook. One air cord from toad to Motorhome. I have never used any other kind. They are right here where I live so are very convenient. Hope this helps. Happy travels..

RE: Flex Steel Couch Air Mattress

I have a pullout bed in my coach that has an Air Dream mattress. You can get a replacement air mattress from them if your patch doesn't work. Hope this helps. Happy travels

RE: 15 Amp Service

How Long are you going to stay? Will you be going back again any time soon. If so, check the breaker box and see if there is room for a 30 amp breaker. If so, pigtail a 30 amp breaker outside the box on the wall of the garage. Not too expensive. Home Depot or Lowes has the stuff. Assuming the control panel is in the garage Easy to do. I have done it three times at my kids houses. That is if you have any electrical knowledge or know of someone who can help. Just a thought. Otherwise all the suggestions before certainly apply. Happy travels. Arnold

RE: Side windows are fogged up

I would also recommend RV Fog Doc in Searcy Arkansas.. I had my two front side windows done this last Sept. The price was $500.00 plus tax. In and out in about 6 hours. I went up on Tuesday night, parked and plugged in at their place and they got me in first thing the next day. On the road by 2pm. Very happy with their work and the windows look great. Had called and made an appointment first. If you have the funds, that would be my recommendation. Best to you in whatever you decide Happy travels. Arnold

RE: Interior dash lights flickering

My headlights are fine. I am going to replace the light switch. Thanks, Doug, I didn't know it might be a Ford switch. Will let you know the results.

Interior dash lights flickering

When I pull on the lights for night driving, my interior dash lights flicker. I'm wondering if I need to replace the light switch. Thoughts?

RE: coating rubber roof what have you used

I recently did a complete cleaning of my roof including taking off (all) the old caulk, re-caulking completely and applying three coats of Hengs' (orange can) I used almost two gallons applying with a roller. Took me about a week to complete the whole project. Hard on the knees, body but I am really happy with the results. There are other products that I researched but decided on the Hengs' because of the easy process of application. Good luck with your projects. Let us know what worked for you. We are always interested in the final results. Safe travels. Arnold

RE: Pros and Cons of owning a class A RV

I own an "older" Motorhome with less than 100,000 miles and I would not be afraid to purchase one that had been properly maintained. It sounds as though you are not planning to use it extensively, so why put a lot of money into the RV? Having only owned a class A, I can't speak about a TT but we really like the convenience of traveling in a Motorhome. Many here will give good advice as to what to look for in shopping but you should consider that with a Motorhome, you will most likely need something to tow so you can get around once you reach your destination. If you don't already have that vehicle, it could be an added expense. Something to think about. Let us know what you decide. We are always interested. Safe travels. Arnold

RE: When it rains, It pours--HELP

It is usually advisable that if one of the four coach batteries goes bad, it is best to replace all four at once. I have found that Sams Club or Cosco carry a suitable line of 6 volt deep cycle batteries. I'm sure there are others and the folks on here can be of help there also. On the Tradewinds chart that I have, fuses F17 and F20 are 10 amp and the others on that row are 15 amp. That being said I'm sure those have been replaced over the years on a coach that old and I doubt that 15 amp fuses in those spots would cause a problem. You mentioned the CO2 sensor beeping. That usually occurs when the house batteries are low. It sounds that many of your symptoms might be due to low batteries. I would suggest a check of each one and if necessary, check your charging system. (inverter/Charger). Posting the solution, when you find it , will be of great help to others who may have encountered similar problem. If you would like a copy of this fuse chart I have, PM me a cell phone number or address where I can send you a copy. Happy Travels. Arnold

RE: When it rains, It pours--HELP

F20 shows to be the stereo and fans. On my chart, it is located next to F17. It is on the upper right hand row last fuse to the left in that cluster of fuses. It also shows to be a 10 amp fuse on the chart. The engine starts on the two big batteries and sounds as if they are low. The generator starts on the 4 house batteries and the slides get power from them also.
