RE: Class A Wind Handling

Double post

RE: Class A Wind Handling

I am quite happy with my '03 F53 chassis handling in wind. I have had only a few situations where I have had to pull off the road in a rest area or campground because of the wind. These rest areas usually fill up quickly with all types of large vehicles in high wind conditions. Of course, a side wind is the worst. However, the coach is manageable, but becomes tiring fighting them. I'm sure your '16 will handle better than my '03. Before you begin adding suspension parts unnecessarily, I would see how it handles stock. Other than shocks, I have not added any suspension parts.

RE: wiring issue

It may be on a GFI circuit. Check GFI's if they are tripped.

RE: ? Heat & Air on Ford Chassis?

A lot of variables. How hot/cold outside? Are you trying to heat/cool the entire motorhome or just the cockpit area? While traveling we usually only need the chassis heat/cool to stay comfortable. Does a pretty good job. There have been times during summer heat when we run the RV air and the furnace in very cold weather.

RE: What's up with RV names??

Mine is Ultra Supreme, which reminds me of pizza!

RE: Anyone interested in 83 Pace Arrow Tear down and Rebuild?

Looks good so far except for one thing: where is the sleeping area?

RE: Will RV 760 Work in alaska

As long as you have the North American maps on your RV760, which I'm sure you do, it will work.

RE: I24/I75 Interchange in Chattanooga, Tn Construction

Thanks for the heads-up. I will be heading down that way in a few weeks. The trip through Chattanooga has always been a mess.

RE: Anyone interested in 83 Pace Arrow Tear down and Rebuild?

Just discovered your thread yesterday and I'm hooked! Spent a couple hours looking at everything you've done and am quite impressed. Being a lifelong DIYer, I appreciate the time and determination you have spent on this project. Oh, to be 50 years old again and have the ambition to take on a major project like this! ;) Can't wait to see the finished product. Excellent work!

RE: Laptop or Tablet computer -- I need a new one.

Had a Chromebook for 2 days, returned it and got a 'real' computer laptop. For me, there's not much you can do on a Chromebook without the internet, which for me while traveling I don't always have.

RE: Disconnecting dolly and vehicle

First I try to get a pull-thru campsite, which makes things very easy. If not, I usually unload the car at the office/registration area and the DW drives the car in. When I get to the campsite, I park the motorhome at the end of the site, remove the dolly and push it to the back of the site. I then back the motorhome in so the rear of the motorhome is over the tongue of the dolly. Good luck.

RE: Lake George

I may be mistaken, but I believe the Garden State Parkway is closed to commercial and large vehicles like a motorhome. Overpasses are too low.

RE: Cape Breton Island

We did the North loop in one day and cut across from Margaree Harbour back to our campground in Baddeck. The second day we took the southern route and once again cut across at Margaree Harbour back to Baddeck. Wasn't really paying attention to the miles, but we saw what we wanted to see without rushing and got back to camp at dusk. Beautiful drive!

RE: ? Class-A Gas Climbing MPH

Some of the toughest hills are on US65 from Springfield, Mo to Branson. Several looong and steep (over 6% grade)hills. Have to brake going down to stay under 70 mph, then hit the gas near the bottom to get momentum to get to the top. Usually doing 30-35 mph at the top with the rig in my sig with 4-ways on. Good straight road, but difficult to keep up the speed.

RE: No Bright Headlights, Sometimes

Thanks for the suggestions. However, the obvious solution is to turn the headlight switch all the way to the right. Boy, it's tough getting old. ???? Had that same 'problem'. That is the solution.;)

RE: Using Cell Phone As Your GPS

I no longer use a GPS but use the Co-Pilot app on my android tablet that has a GPS sensor built in. With Co-Pilot you can configure your vehicle size and it will keep you out of trouble. THIS ^^^

RE: GOOGLE search operators

I stopped using google search sometime ago. Got tired of all the 'suggestions' that keep popping up after you do a search. I now use DuckDuckGo

RE: GOOGLE search operators

Wow! Hadn't heard the term 'Boolean' in many years. Used to teach Boolean algebra and the electronic circuits that use it. Remember the Eccles-Jordan multivibrator?

RE: Where to buy Goodyear tires for Class A?

Had gotten 4 tires at Reece's Tire in Summerville several years ago. Took 1 day to get tires I wanted. Price was best around.
