RE: can't find drain

Find your water tank and follow the pipes leading out. In my situation the water tank is under the bed and the drain valve can be accessed through an opening in the base under the mattress.

RE: Nightmare experience with RV service center

Any consumer should get a written estimate before any work is done on your home, car, or motorhome. If they charge for diagnostics that charge should be in writing before any diagnosing is done. Getting several estimates before work is done is common sense. Then you can choose which company is to do the work. Getting scammed apparently is part of life lately and getting back at the scammer is, I think, the correct thing to do.

RE: Insurance recommendations for Class C

My motorhome insurance jumped up by over $400.00 last year. No claims ever. Found Progressive to be less than half of what I was paying and they offered more coverage. Check them out along with others before deciding.

RE: $$$ to maintain and repair?

No luck at any salvage yards. E-mail from Winnebago - do not have the encoders (actuators) and cannot get them nor manufacture them. Repair facility in discussions with Lippert was advised to by-pass the encoders and wire the motors directly with new switches for each motor.

RE: $$$ to maintain and repair?

Thank you for your suggestions about my slideout. I have contacted three RV salvage yards by e-mail or phone and two do not have any slideout parts. the third is still looking. My repair facility contacted Lippert who bought Kwikee and they were not helpful. Maybe they did not buy up parts-all they said that those parts are no longer available. Hopefully they can come up with a part that can be used.

RE: $$$ to maintain and repair?

I have a 2004 Winnebago - like new inside and out. My only problem just happened with the slideout not working. Had to crank it in by hand. Repair company diagnosed the problem and cannot get the parts as they are now no longer making them. The failed parts are the actuators to both motors. Getting parts is the main problem with older units - although I do not think 15 years should be so obsolete that companies no longer make parts that may fail.

RE: 32 ft class c

You asked for disadvantages and people got on an air conditioner thing. I have a 32' Winnie and tow a car behind. One disadvantage is finding a gas station where you have room to fill up and leave. These would be stations that do not have the pump lanes perpendicular to the street. Another is making sure that you leave enough room when you turn as the back end swings more than you might realize. There are advantages and disadvantages to every unit, but in most cases the advantages (like roominess) out way the disadvantages.

RE: easy place to get gas

When driving down the road I look for the exits that have the most gas stations figuring that one of them would be suitable. The ones that have the lanes parallel to the road are the easiest to get into and out of. I drive a 32 footer with car behind-as Dick B. said pump islands parallel to the road are a must. Many times I have driven by stations with the islands facing the station knowing that it is almost impossible to have enough room to swing out after gassing up.

RE: Question for Class C owners

First of all a class C is a truck and drives like a truck. My 2004 32ft. Winnie drives smoothly on well paved roads. With tires at max pressure, the ride is harsh on bumps. the F450 is loud under load, but under normal conditions is relatively quiet. You will hear noises from the camper part that you cannot hear pulling a 5th wheel.

RE: New to class c

The fiberglass roof is a deal maker. Less maintenance and less chance of leaking. Probably costs a little more, but worth it.

RE: Your opinion on this one

After sitting idle for 6 years there are going to be major problems from lack of lubrication. Obviously whoever owned it never took it out on the road to keep the engine and wheels lubricated. Probably never changed the oil in 6 years. Walk away!!!
