RE: Tiffin Motorhome repair Red Bay rule change

Does Tiffin not have a nationwide service network? Why must one bring a Tiffin back to the factory? The dealers are the service network and dealers are often unreliable.

RE: Tiffin Motorhome repair Red Bay rule change

I see no obligation for Tiffin to be a general repair facility. I see an obligation for them to do warranty work. If stopping general repair work facilitates more efficiency in warranty work that's good. I think Tiffin should build several regional sales and service centers, ditch the dealers, and sell and service direct. And then do all services needed regardless of the age of the coach. After all, it's obvious the dealers can't be relied upon, why not just cut the bums out?

RE: Solo Women Travellers

Isn't there a cult of desert dwelling single women in Lazy Daze class Cs?

RE: It sure is complicated.

Just Do It. Americans don't do things, they "get into" things. This is a nation where people change their clothes to ride a bicycle.

RE: Parking at Walmart

Human nature being what it is, I wonder how many choose to keep their secret places instead of reporting them to the makers of campground lists? I'm like that. Being Chicago South Side Irish I was taught as a child to keep a good thing under my hat.

RE: Bridge Falls onto I75

Since this mostly a joke.. My response to most politicians when they make promises is this: "I grew up on a dairy farm".. Of course this begs the question "What does that have to do with what the politician was talking about?"... To which I respond "I've shoveled that stuff by the ton". Raises the question, not begs it. Begging the question is a logical fallacy akin to making a circular argument.

RE: Motor homes over the years

Apologists for the state of current RV quality often make the assertion that RVs being driven down the road are being operated in “earthquake conditions”. I’m skeptical of this assertion and would like to see a citation for it.

RE: Jayco quality?

My last few years in the trade (Boilermakers Local 1, Chicago) housekeeping was increasingly looked upon as a safety issue and as such was looked after.

RE: Jayco quality?

@jdb7566. Leaving trash behind is common among all construction trades. All the trades? And how would you know? In industrial construction cleanliness is often taken quite seriously and trades such as ironworkers,boilermakers, pipe fitters and milllwrights are often expected to keep a clean site and do. And the contractor can always send the laborers around to clean up; that’s their rice bowl after all.

RE: Forest river plant explosion

Its pretty sad when you can't drug test employees for fear of loosing production goals. Maybe they need to relocate the factories, but where would you go. Chicago isn’t far. They could move to the East Side or Hegewisch and hire industrious, enterprising Polish and Mexican Americans and build the things right. But those people won’t work for peanuts and will demand respect.

Maybe management did a Gus and George job.

RE: Is there really a 1/2 ton towable fifth wheel?

I talked to a fella today pulling a rather small Jayco 5W with an Ecoboost F-150 with a heavy duty payload package. When he bought the truck there were only 2 available in the country and it was shipped to his dealer from a couple of states away. The truck is a rather spartan XLT with an extended cab and 8 foot bed; not a soccer Dad truck. The owner is very satisfied. As has been mentioned the savvy know you can get an F-150 that has more payload than a 250 diesel. Now 250 gassers have fine payload but the diesels, well they’re kind’a weak kneed.

RE: Can't bring TT home because of neighbors parking in street?

HOA out here is a Smith and Wesson 44 magnum. Tough guy.

RE: Gas engine

This might not apply but note that scads of people are satisfactorily driving all over the place in Ford V-10 gas Class A motorcoaches with GVWRs up to 26,000 pounds and GCWRs of 30,000.

RE: truck stops

No doubt many RVers pulling rigs longer than legal limits complain about people who feel “entitled”.

RE: Towing a Ford Edge

Luv the Edge and was disappointed to see the 2019 are not towable. The 2019 Edge ST, which uses a 6 cylinder engine and AWD, can be flat towed. The 4 cylinder models can’t be flat towed. Check the owner’s manual if you like, it’s online.

RE: Weight question.... Jeep GC Trailhawk

As long as you come in under both the GCWR of the coach and its hitch receiver capacity you should be OK. We have a 34 foot Tiffin gasser and considered the Grand Cherokee but while we would’ve been under the GCWR of our coach we would’ve been over the hitch receiver capacity of 5000 pounds. No dice. Same story for the 3.5 turbo AWD Explorer. So we bought a 2WD Explorer which loaded to our needs falls under 5000 pounds. (We need a vehicle which can carry a pair of recumbent tadpole tricycles.)

RE: Safety concerns and crash data for Class A's?

In any event I’d rather be “thrown clear”. I can see the reasoning of a small but strong and rigid car that would stand up to a great impact and while still subjecting the driver to large G forces prevents his being criushed or dismembered. Kind’a like a big bumper car, know what I mean?
