RE: Gen leaking fuel

X2 and I had one Did you check the fuel hoses and connections? The rubber hoses can rot or wear from rubbing against something.

RE: How long to build Class A Gas motorhome

When we ordered ours we had an invoice printed out the same day. No Vin Number was given. No increase in price when it arrived. Of course that was in 2002. Hey dougrainer, I’m curious about something. When he ordered the motorhome did he get an invoice with all the pricing? And even more critical, did the invoice contain a VIN number? My invoice shows all those things and I don’t know how, regardless of how things have gone up, they could increase my price? Not when my coach is VIN specific.

RE: Towing

She who must be obeyed is very smart! DOUBLE towing (truck/trailer/trailer) is legal in Montana and several other Western states. Yes, I could tow the Jeep and the boat behind the motorhome, legally, except that she-who-must-be-obeyed will not allow it. TRIPLE towing (truck/trailer/trailer/trailer) is legal in Montana on the freeways and within a certain distance of the freeway to allow getting to the yards. It is usually only seen with Commercial trucks (UPS, FEDEX, etc.) Maximum length is, IIRC, 75 feet whether commercial or non-commercial.

RE: A few mods done today

Agreed and I had a fried with a rear flap and I do not after going to the lake on a dirt road his rear compartment was full of a heavy coating of dust. Mine had a light coating. The flap just pushed the dust up into the compartment. It's funny, but the first thing I did after buy my coach was REMOVE that rock dragger on the back of the coach. It sounds like it was just as easy to remove as yours was to install. I don't like providing free advertising either so it was a win-win for me. It should help the engine run cooler (better air flow out the bottom) and reduce the amount of rock chipping to the toad. I had just the opposite. Without it, I had rock damage on my Explorer. Found rocks at the base of the windshield and a couple on the roof. I got 2 things for one with it. It finishes off the rear and offers protection for the toad. As far as heat, the generator is already running hot, this isn’t going to block any airflow at the rear to cause heat issues.

RE: DP Engine Heat

I would not either as after a few beers I could not lift the bed up for more! I wouldn’t put my beer in there.

RE: Towing

South of Denver we came across an interesting sight. A big nice boat and trailer was out in the median flip on it side and then we saw a fiver flip over on the side of the road with a dully flipped in front of the fiver. My guess is the boat trailer had no brakes and jacked knifed behind the Fiver and became disconnected before rambling off into the median, That cause the fiver to start swishing back and forth until it flipped over and took the dully with it. Best news of all no body else was involved and the boat and fiver diver was out of a vacation.IMHO it is stupid! I was just passed by a large DP towing a large SUV that in turn was towing a utility trailer with a golf cart in it. Iv been RVing over 50 years and this is a first. Im wondering if this is legal, it was on I40 going east in TN. Bob

RE: best way to test house batteries ?

Get a load tester, fully charge all of the batteries and then use the load tester on each battery. If one is bad replace all of them at the same time!

RE: Class A Generator Repair - Sacramento, CA Area

Look here RV Service Review I have been looking for a reliable company in the sacramento, ca area that does generator repair. None of the local RV repair places (Yuba City) do their own generator repairs and refer me to Holley Generator in Rancho Cordova. Unfortunately, Holley has a five month waiting period. Does anyone have a good recommendation ? Thanks much for any assistance.

RE: Draining hot water tank

We drained it every fall when we winterized. Hi everyone, Is it necessary to drain the hot water tank when the MH is sitting for several months between trips? I live in the SW so freezing temps are not a problem. Thanks, Bill

RE: Advantages of diesel pushers

Side radiator set up makes the engine compartment entry from the rear easy. Reducing maintenance time frame compared to under the bed engine access.

RE: Sales Hints

Have you financial create an escrow account that the money comes to. Give them the signed title and they will transfer the funds to you and the title to the buyer. When selling your RV, what did you require from the driver before allowing them to drive the unit? When it came time to close on the rv, did you go to a bank to do the closing or what? How did you make sure the funds were valid? What about transfer of the title? I read somewhere a horror story about someone who sold their rv and the new people didn't transfer the title and something happened to the coach and the former owners got stuck with some expenses and a law suit. Definitely want to avoid that!!

RE: New Ford Chassis

I think they are talking about gas chassis that have IFS no DPs. I know of no gas unit with IFS. Not enough of a change to be excited about! Let’s see independent front suspension, and an air ride option. That would be a HUGE cost increase ! One of the reasons that the F53 sells well is it low cost compared to other manufacturers. (Do ANY Class A's actually have independent front suspension ?) Most of the larger Class A RVs have IFS.
