RE: Allison 3000 transmission

As long as it tests good, no change is required...per Allison.

RE: Allison 3000 transmission

Have the fluid tested by JG Labs. I have it done once a year, their report will tell you everything you need to know. http://www.jglubricantservices.com/

RE: Oil change on the road

....We usually get an oil change just before we leave... Same here, that's the safest thing to do.

RE: Inverter charge battery?

You probably have an inverter/charger...the inverter changes 12v to AC power and the charger charges the batteries. FYI, a converter, usually in pull behinds and 5th wheels, changes AC power to 12v...and has a separate charger.

Be sure it will clear the slides.

RE: Buying a new class A

My suggestion would be........don't buy new. Look for a good used motor home. There's lots of them out there. Let someone else take the big depreciation. Second, don't buy gas, buy a diesel pusher preferably with a side radiator. With your budget you can get a very nice used diesel pusher. Supercub beat me to it...my suggestion exactly. For $250k you can get a nice relatively new DP.

RE: Towing a 2 wheel drive automatic transmission

...The ultimate authority is the actual Owners Manual that came with the vehicle. In most cases you can do a Google Search with the year make and model to find one online. But you will want to verify with the actual owners manual of that vehicle to be sure since sometimes the online ones might differ from the actual. Generally speaking you want to look for the section on "Recreational Towing" in the owners manual... This is what you need to do. You're getting lots of advice that is not exactly correct...the owner's manual is what counts.

RE: Tiffin or Fleetwood.

Get the one with the floor plan you like with good maintenance records. Tiffin makes a luxury coach, but Phaeton is not it, same goes for Fleetwood and Discovery.

RE: Keeping a charge on AGM batteries

Call who ever makes the controller for the batteries and be sure it is set up for AGMs, correct number of batteries, amp hours, charge rate, etc. Once they are set correctly, you can leave the AGMs plugged in as long as you want.

RE: Good time to buy class a diesel?

Good time to buy a DP....used is better, don't get the huge depreciation lost on the new ones....which are way over priced.

RE: Oil for generator

Use what ever you use in the engine....15W40 Rotella for me on diesel number four.

RE: Antifreeze no longer pink

Color of coolant is irrelevant. There are too many variables....for gas engines, for diesel engines, standard, extended life, probably more, and they don't mix well.

RE: Newmar response

My experience is that the tech side of the house will not call back. You have to call them and wait in line until they get to you. They all like to say, "call, leave us a message and we will call you back."

RE: Class A Tire Recommendation

Like several others, I replaced my OEM Michelins at five and a half years....will never buy them again. I have Continentals on the front and Toyos on the rear. Both were cheaper and will last longer.

RE: Long trips

One reason we switched to a Class A from a 5th wheel was that no how nice the truck and 5th wheel, you're still riding in a truck. You can't do anything but ride. In the class A you can get to the refrig, bathroom, bedroom, closet, pantry and any where else you want. Plus the weather is irrelevant....if it's pouring rain you can still get what you want without getting out of the MH.

RE: How important is tire size to your selection?

Get the coach you want, the appropriate tires will be on it. If you want 22.5s that means you'll get a larger coach than one with 19.5s.

RE: Side mounted cameras

Our coach came with side cameras. We don't use them....in the habit of using side mirrors on our regular vehicles so we do the same thing in the MH. We have triple lenses which is nice.

RE: questions on parking dp vs gas on grass

....DPs are much heavier than gassers.....D Yes, the most important difference.

RE: Freightliner customer service

The Freightliner dealers in my area don't make appointments. So I call the day prior to see if they will be busy...."no, bring it out." So I did, fuel filter change, got there at 8 AM left at 4:45. Happens routinely, and they don't seem to care.
