RE: Is there any difference in DRIVING a gas class A vs diesel?

I recently switched from a gas Ford powered 34 ft MH to a rear diesel 34 ft and it is night and day different in quiet, comfort and handeling. I find the ride and braking so much better and seems to pull my towed car easier too. It did cost more to upgrade, but we did upgrade from the gas. You have to actually get behind the wheel of a diesel and try for yourself to see if it is what you desire. One drive for us sold us that quick.

RE: Gray tank cleaner

I used the Flush King to back flush the gray tank system. Always pulled things out of that tank without adding anything to the system. have a clear down spout to let me see what was coming out. Did it about 2-3 times a year.

RE: Anyone utilize Camping World consignment?

I can not believe that they would put any effort into trying to sell your unit used when they have a whole lot of new units they can sell. DTANK'S idea is a good one and wish you the best in selling your rig.

RE: Class C Pros and Cons

We bought a 2007 Class C from a private owner in 2015, we looked at C's for well voer a month and saw some really tired rigs. The ones well kept stuck out and you could see why they were priced a tad higher. Our demands were less than 30 feet, one owner, clean and well cared for with some records of service. Was worth the hunt as our rig was close to perfect and we kept it till we moved up to a Class A. I agree with all that has been said, your insurance rates are way out of line, after some suspension improvements I did handeling was greatly improved. It was easy to drive and get into most all campsites.It was a Ford V-10 and easy to work on.

RE: valve stems for TPMS

I second the not purchasing the flow through senders, and going with the regular sender caps. And would not spend the money for the tow vehicle added senders, just the trailer. But I would remove the rubber stems and replace with metal stems for the security of having them not flex and possible snap off with the sensor on the end of the rubber.

RE: 2Toad rver.

Spare tires were an option on the SRX and some folks did not want to pay for that opiton. I have a spare and have never used it.

RE: JB Weld or ? Quick Water Tank Fix

Have to decide if $130 fixed and problem cured is less than a cheaper maybe not fixed as well fix? How many times do you want to try to fix it with less than perfect materials? Sometimes you have to bite the bullet and buy the best product you need. Maybe a cheaper system will work, don't know. I just like to fix things once. Is there another recommendation besides JB Weld for a quick fix water tank leak? The leak is on the part/where valve goes into the tank. Someone also suggested 3M Panel Bond, but this is over $130 with application gun. Thank you

RE: monitoring tire temp

When your pulling out of the campground and get that small nail in your tire and then your planned first stop is 3-4 hours down the road, exactly when are you going to use the ir to see your tire is either flat, destroyed from driving for miles with not enough air or so hot you can't touch it? Spending the money just might keep you from having to buy a new tire, or worst yet, sitting along the side of some expressway with 70 mph plus cars and trucks flying by inches from you and your rig. Make no difference to me what you do, but I never move my RV without the TPMS on and operational.And yes, it has saved me money letting me know a problem long before I had to replace a tire.

RE: Foolish Things We’ve Done as Kids

The little local store was out of caps, the paper strip you ran through a cap gun. Figured since my dad had a bunch of already fired 22 shells maybe us kids could make our own caps? Broke off the heads of the wooden stick matches and crammed them into the empty shell. Then proceeded hammer them with a small sledge hammer on the concrete driveway. Worked GREAT, a louded bang than the paper caps gave out till one of the brass shells split and went flying into my leg. Not so good, could have been a bad thing had it gone into an eye or somewhere else, as it was the brass was easily pulled out by me and a band aide covered the hole. We stopped that little experiment.

RE: Buying an RV in CA from private party

I've purchased two different vehicles from people (not dealers) in Ca and I live in Az. Zero sales tax paid to Az or Ca. Here if you buy from a private owner, from any state, Arizona will not charge you sales tax.

RE: flat towing a toad

We opted to have a nice vehicle to drive when not being towed, so went with a Cadillac 2015 SRX front wheel drive. Tows great, very easy to make ready, no fuses to pull.
