RE: Solar while the RV is in Storage

So while we had our RV in storage we kept it on solar to keep the batteries charged. We have 4 - 12 V batteries, 2 coach and 2 chassis. The solar panel was only 100W and we never had an issue. We live in Florida and it never was in storage for over 6 -8 weeks at time.

RE: Couch to recliners

We swapped out sofa bed for two recliners. The only thing we had to do was remove the back of the sofa to get it out if the door. Make sure you measure for wall clearance with the new setup. We bought our recliners from Hudson Furniture.

RE: Coach net vs FMCA road side assist

Wed have FMCA's Roadside Rescue and had the unfortunate experience in using them twice. The only reason I say unfortunate because we broke down twice:(. Both times they made sure we were safe and called once they found a tech or wrecker. The also called to make sure that the services arrived when they said they would. They then called back on a follow-up to ensure all went well. Safe Ride is what most roadside assistance network uses. The big difference is what each plan covers. FMCA roadside rescue does cover any vehicle we own. For 75 bucks a year it is well worth the money it costs. We purchased roadside rescue after attending a FMCA seminar in Perry. You do have to have a current FMCA membership, which also has other benefits.

RE: What is the hierarchy of Gulfstreams?

We have a 2003 YellowStone and are very happy with the coach. It has a CAT330HP with allison transmission. Very well built, solid structure and wood cabinets. We just replaced the original roof top A/C's and all other appliances are original. We have had the coach about 6 1/2 years. We would definently look at Gulf Streams again of we were in the market.

RE: Dometic roof top ac unit

The cost of repairing could be as expensive as replacing with a new one. We replaced both roof A/C's with 15K units for $1200 including new thermostats.

RE: Winnebago vs Tiffin

Tiffin has changed their repair policy recently. They don't do much repair if out of warranty any longer. We travel with a group of Tiffin owners and they don't much like the change.

RE: Motorcycle carrier for a diesel pusher

Depending on your axle capacity you may want to look at Tandum Tow's. We have looked at the lifts, but our bike and lift will put us about 1800# overweight on the rear axle. We have a 39' DP on a freightliner chassis.

RE: CAT 3126B

When I change the fuel filter I put a 1" nipple on the fuel filter and then pre-fill the filter with clean diesel. The nipple is there to keep the diesel out of the center of the filter. So far has worked for the last 4 filter changes.

RE: Water system woes.

I would check the tank sizes for all of your tanks. We have a 03 Class 'A' and my wife and I can go about 12 days before we need to dump? Depending on the fresh water tank size you may be okay with a full tank.

RE: Serpentine belt

I replaced both belts on my 2003 Gulf Stream DP with a CAT 330HP with rear radiator. Takes a 1/2 ratchet to pull down to pull off the serpentine belt. It takes if I remember right a 1/2 socket to loosen the water pump vbelt. It took me probably 2 hours which included running down to the freightliner dealer for the belts. I suspect a repair shop would charge 1.5 - 2 hrs.

RE: FL to Yellowstone 10 weeks out west what to do?

Depending on what you like to do. Austin Texas is an awesome place. Lots of food and music downtown. There is an old RV park, Pecan Grove, that is only a mile from downtown Austin. Another stop as you get to Alabama is outside of Birmingham called Barber Motor Sports. It is a 5 story motorcycle museum and has the largest collection of Lotus racing cars in the world. They old vintage motorcycle races and Indy car racing, among other track events. It is well worth the stop due to the amount of history on motorcycles. If you gamble there are also quite a few casino's down toward Alabama and Mississippi. Mobile Alabama is also a military park that a good stop.

RE: Key West suggestions other than Boyds

Blue Water has 2 different sites for rentals. It was a few years ago but water sites were only 110 a night.i see they went up but some of the sites are atill under 150. https://bluewaterkey.com/vip-rates/ is the site I looked at. I looked and couldn't find the other site. It was a .net site. There are no comparisions between Boyds and Blue Water. Blue water tons of space and some type of TiKi Hut at each one. There is also a shuttle/local bus that will take you directly to Key West. NO need to park or drive. The pickup/dropoff is right outside of Blue Water.
