RE: Won't ever buy a Keystone RV

So sorry to hear about all your troubles! When I was researching for our new 5th wheel purchase, I found a site that gave percentages of repairs for different brands. I'm sorry to say Keystone had a very high rate of repair - and not great customer satisfaction. Good luck - be tenacious! I'm sure many RVers would like info on that web site.

RE: Roofs-Fiberglass vs. Rubber/TPO

MHs with fiber glass roofs have front and rear end caps. Not sure about the MHs with rubber roofs. The end caps have to be watched. I like my fiber glass roof but it is probably just personal opinion. The rubber roofs are getting better. Winnebago has had some problems with their roofs. Leaks on the sides. If I were buying another MH I would be looking at Tiffin or some of the other better brands. Keep in kind the best roof can turn out bad with sloppy workmanship.

When that happened to me and I couldn't get into warm country I had to find an RV shop that could put my TT inside where it could thaw. It ended up being, thawing, dumping, & minor repairs. They also winterized and got me on my way.

RE: MAXX Air Covers

There are 2 different types of Maxx covers. We had the Maxx air 2 installed that allows more air flow. Plus it is hinged for easy clean out.

RE: Gas or Electric

There was a post a few days ago where they were supplementing their furnace heat with an electric heater and pipes froze. An electric heater can effect the furnace thermostat i.e. making the RV to appear warmer thus not turning on the furnace in below freezing weather. You do need to keep your basement above freezing. I use an indoor outdoor thermometer and monitor my wet bay temp.

RE: Coach Insurance In Storage

GS insurance only allows your RV insurance to be modified in storage if the RV is totally paid off. Lien holders require full insurance 365 days a year.

RE: Electric short

It is on all sockets on the side, from front to rear bedroom.... In a S&B or RV they normally run several outlets on one line. Loose wire on one will effect all in the line. Check all the outlets on that side.

RE: Help! New led lights don't work

They won't work with a dimmer switch. I have a dimmer switch over my driver position in our MH. LED just glows. I had to remove it. Like a previous post mentions try it in a regular socket somewhere else.

RE: Would you buy used again?

Just go through it in detail. We've all read the stories of lemons,oops,dealer never could fix its, so I traded it in. Make sure that's not what you are looking at. Yup That is why I dumped my 1 year old TT on trade. It was leaking water in the front wall. Jayco couldn't fix it on warranty. They were baffled.

RE: Missoula to Yuma

Having traveled in cold country a lot I would recommend staying on interstates unless you are familiar with secondary highways and watching weather reports closely. Several years ago I was heading south from Missoula and got directions from a local person and almost got stranded in a snow storm. Neither that person nor I was aware of of a storm coming in. Be careful. Interstates are monitored and plowed regularly, secondary hwys are not.

RE: Would you buy used again?

Having warranty left is a great attribute but... I see a new 2016 listed at 36999 which tells me that new price may come down considerably. I think you still have some negotiating room for the used unit,they may not have paid much more than they are asking. That was what I was thinking. I bet with some haggling you could get a 2016 model for close to $28k.

RE: Just had enough

Seems like everyone wishes their life away. I retired at 55 and regretted it. I changed my profession the 3rd time and went back to work and retired 2 years ago at 75. I was bored after I retired at 55.

RE: Any truth to this

Retired from where? The assembly line or certification engineering? Makes a lot of difference. Sounds like he was blowing a lot of smoke trying to justify what he was doing. You only need to read tire load raring, look up RAWR to see that falsehood. So true. I had a friend that when asked a question would ask if you you knew anything about the subject. If you said no he would say "great, I'm an expert". :B

RE: F150 Locking Differential vs 4X4

One of the problems with PUs is they are light on the rear wheels. Not as light as years ago when the gas tank was in the cab but they are still light on the rear wheels. It is easier to get stuck with a 2WD PU than with a sedan. Resale on a 4WD is much higher. I suspect mostly urban buyers get a 2WD PU anymore. The big issue like mentioned is towing. By the time you had the Remco axle disconnect the price would probably be about the same so why add all the after market stuff that probably won't bring more resale value. I would never buy a 2WD PU again. a 4WD vehicle is just more practical. BTW: When I brought a 2WD diesel PU from CA to WY they didn't even want to give me fair market value. The only reason they gave me much trade in at all was because it was a 7.2L diesel. Nobody wants them anymore.

RE: Why I don't like Thanksgiving

I like Thanksgiving. Turkey prices are up so I am trying to help keep turkey prices down. We're having a prime rib roast. If you missed my post. My assigned job is pouring champagne. Keeping my glass, I mean all glasses filled. :B

RE: Can you cook a turkey with a battery charger?

On Thanksgiving everyone is stressed out but me. My assigned job is to keep pouring champagne. :B HAPPY THANKSGIVING ALL.

RE: So..you think you are just gonna shoot the bear?

If you are on the trail and see a bear and have a gun it is better to shoot yourself instead of the bear. You can shoot a burglar or an attacking person. Shoot an attacking bear and you'll go to jail. :h

RE: Clunk when downshifting pulling trailer

Was it the transmission or the locking rear wheel differential?

RE: Goofy Garmin Directions

I plotted a shortest route in WY from two towns. When I looked at the route on a paper map I realized part of the route was on a 4wd jeep trail. I don't trust them. :B
