RE: Absolute positively the worst road ever

Alcan Hwy from Destruction Bay, YT to Tok, AK 225 Miles of frost heaves and even some gravel. It was so bad I decided going back home to take “The Top of the World Hwy” from Chicken, AK to Dawson City, YT. The American side of that road is two lane gravel. Hewn into the side of cliffs with no guard rails or shoulder. Mesmerizing views but terrorizing when meeting gravel haulers coming down at you at two or three times your speed. There is literally no place to go. You just pull as close to the edge and stop praying they miss you.

RE: THOR Motor Coach

I all ways by used. I had a 2011 28’, Thor made, Chateau for my last class C. It had some electrical issues. But the coach was made to the same standards as my 2002 Arctic Fox and 2003 Damon Challenger near as I could tell inside. In fact my current coach made by Coachmen, a subsidiary of Forest River, (2014 Leprechaun) is made with the same standards inside. Yes, some small things are made on the cheap with this unit also. As you will find in any mid-priced coach. The folks that throw “THOR” out there as junk product is just is not right. They make many, many products. Some are better than others. In some cases much better than second up. In Thor’s case they make so many products you have to hear about the bad ones more than the good ones on the net. Peace…

RE: 2020 Class'C' E-450 Ford V10 lacks power?

Almost funny... “K&N filters still require that spray to capture the dirt more effectively” Followed by “That sensor is extremely sensitive to dirt.” I do not think K&N filters are necessary on a van. Normal common sense says change the filter when needed. The only car I have had a K&N filter on was a 1965 Shelby AC Cobra that really needed to breathe. If you have a Ford. Get the Five Star Tune. It does make a difference on shifting under load. I bought it and liked it.

RE: toilet

I have seen a tooth brush used on the seal, it worked.

RE: diesel class c

If you do not like the sound of a V10 in a class C. Get one with a Chevy chassis. Just my two cents….

RE: Loud Water Pump

I also like to hear the water pump run. That burp when there is a slow leak someplace saved a bathroom floor recently. Also turning the pump on after being gone for a while and hearing nothing is a good feeling. Now rattling water pipes just have to be quieted somehow. Been there, done that also.

RE: Move to Motorhome

Things to think about when considering floorplans. Walk into shower. Some showers you have to step up to get into them. Corner shower, some are bigger than others. Big ones are real roomy inside. Counter space by the kitchen sink for food prep. Large outside rear storage. They can be up to 100cu ft. No window over the headboard of the bed. Keeps bedroom more comfortable on hot days or real cool nights. Livable with slide(s) in. A north south bed that is offset to one side. That gives you room to walk & dress on one side. 60x80 real queen bed. Uses standard bed sheets and such. Ford E450 or Chevy 4500 chassis. Having had both I have found the Chevy handles cross winds & passing big rigs better. Just a comment. All class Cs have an overhead above the cab designed to be a bed or audio center. It is a great place for storing things. My current rig has lots of storage behind the large TV in the audio center.

RE: Class C wish list

Things to look for I have found value in while having in a class C …. Walk into shower. Some showers you have to step up to get into them. Corner shower, some are bigger than others. Big ones are real roomy inside. Counter space by the kitchen sink for food prep. Large outside rear storage. They can be up to 100cu ft. No window over the headboard of the bed. Livable with slide(s) in. A north south bed that is offset to one side. That gives you room to walk & dress on one side. 60x80 real queen bed. Uses standard bed sheets and such. Ford E450 or Chevy 4500 chassis. As a Ford guy, I have found the Chevy better. Hate to admit that. Just a comment. All class Cs have an overhead above the cab designed to be a bed or audio center. It is a great place for storing things. My current rig has lots of storage behind the TV in the overhead area.

RE: Fry cooking electric device and watts?

I use an air fryer at home & in the camper. It has fewer prep/cleanup steps to deal with and the results are as good as a deep fryer. As much as I like French fries I almost never made them when I had a deep fryer. Now I make fried or baked foods whenever feel like it because cleanup is so simple. My fryers are 1400 watts.

RE: Do Flea Collars Really Repel Pests?

I had a spider build a web in the mixing tube close to the LP jet in the water heater overnight back in 2006. I have placed used pieces of flea & tick collar in the hot water & furnace bays ever since and have never had a spider issue again.

RE: Anyone here upgraded their headlights?

If your eyes are not what they once were. Go to an eye surgeon and see if you need cataract removal. I waited way too long to have that done. It makes things back to normal driving. Plus you can see things in front of you with a strong light behind it.

RE: Looking for a preowned Class C

If I were in the market again. I would look at a used rental if it had what I wanted. I would also be looking for another Chevy based unit.

RE: I-94 through Chicago

Been through Atlanta many times. Worked in Chicago many years. Hauled a TT on I94 through Chicago once. Never again. I suppose if you knew what lane was the “right” lane to be in it would not be so harrowing. I would suggest get on I80 west. Pick up I39 north. Then just inside Wisconsin take I43 and deal with Milwaukee traffic while heading north. Or get the I-PASS or EZ-PASS and do I294 around Chicago. I gave I-PASS $20 when they first offered it. When the balance gets to $10 they replenish it back to $20. Illinois tolls are ½ price. One transponder is good for all my vehicles. Just put it in the lead vehicle when towing.

RE: New to RVing

It all goes back to floorplan. My current rig has a lot of kitchen counter space that I love. It also has a walk in shower that I need now that I am older. Plus the bed is off set so one side gives me more room to get dressed. Past that, I found the stock Chevy chassis handles better than a Ford on the road. I have had both. Live and learn. Both were on a class C measuring 30’.

RE: New to RVing

I spent well over $1000 to stabilize my E350 on the road due to wind and trucks passing and cut down on the engine noise due to down shifting on very moderate grades. Pianotuna, I am happy you are happy with your modifications to your E450. “Air Tabs”, must be very impressive.

RE: New to RVing

No stock Ford E350 handles cross winds or big trucks going by like a stock Chevy 4500 chassis in my experience. Both were about 30’ overall. Both rigs had all the water tanks over or just behind the rear axle. I am surprised some manufactures place the water tanks at the back of the camper. My two class Cs have had that room for storage (almost 100cuft). I doubt I have anywhere near what water weighs back there. But I do dry camp with electric most times. I can go a week with or without electric. Depending on the weather.

RE: Ford V10 Winterize/additive?

If you area does not add ethanol to your gas. You do not need to put anything into the tank for the winter. If you have traveled and may have ethanol gas in your tank. Run the tank down to 1/8 of a tank and add real gas. Then drive it for a bit and run the generator for an hour and call it a day. Around here real gas is expensive now days. It may cost more than those additives. But I have had engines sit for many years and still started with real gas in the tank.
