Agree with Magne Shade.

RE: Benefits of registration in SD

As noted above, states are cracking down on RVers claiming residence in one state to avoid taxes in their "true" home state. My state is checking out of state tags and when they find somebody doing what I stated above, they get fined, pay all past state taxes and state tax penalties. Check with an attorney.

Traditions are fine coaches.

RE: Induction cooktop

Does an induction cooktop run off of the inverter or is it genset only if not plugged in. I am referring to a cooktop in a large DP. Tiffin, Newmar, or Berkshire. thanks You can run it off any AC outlet that is wired to the inverter. We run the M/W off the inverter and it draws more amps than the induction cooktop.

RE: Slide Out Toppers

When you replace them use Sunbrella, they'll last a very long time.

RE: Diesel engine storage

Fill the tank and use a biocide. The biocide is critical, it will keep microbial growth (algae, bacteria and fungi) out of your fuel. Don't start the engine until you are ready to use it, monthly starts are not necessary.

RE: Travel on I-24 through Nashville

RE: Transynd vs Dexron VI

Allison ONLY recommends transmission fluid that is TES-295 approved. Several manufacturers meet this spec. I would not use any fluid that does not say that it meets the Allison TES-295 specifications. The older transmissions did come with a non-295 Fluid, probably Dex III in your case, but why go with any inferior fluid when Allison now recommends a fluid that meets TES-295 in their older transmissions. You do not have to buy Allison fluid if you don't want to give them the money but I would definitely recommend buying the newer spec fluid from someone, anyone, instead of using an older fluid. Saving a few bucks on a transmission that can cost $5000+ to repair just doesn't make sense. BP, Castrol, and others make the TES-295 fluid that you need. Try to find one on sale and use the right, most recent fluid, instead of using a fluid that Allison abandoned many years ago for their transmissions.This is the answer. If you want a graduate education on TES-295 fluid go to but be prepared to read 51+ pages. EVERYTHING you need to know. I talked to Tom Johnson last week about the sample of trans fluid I sent for testing. He said if you test the fluid annually, and it tests okay, the fluid is good for 300,000 other words "life" for an RV. The biggest concern is that it could get contaminated by coolant, engine oil, etc.

RE: Newmar Mountain Aire

Close to pulling the trigger on a 2019. This will be our first MH have had 3 5th wheels. Any insights on the model 4579 Should be a nice one, but my preference for the same dollar amount, would be for a slightly used King Aire or maybe a London Aire. Should have less problems than a new one and with a large chunk of depreciation already gone. Same here, any new coach will have it's share of problems. I'd buy a unit a few years lots of money and the problems will be worked out (hopefully)

RE: In Dash GPS are they worth a darn ?

A portable big screen Garmin is much better. I don't even bother with the one in my dash. Same here, I've had two built in GPSs....very hard to use and update. Get a Garmin RV GPS, free lifetime up dates and RV oriented.

RE: To leave plugged in or not

...The real answer is that IT DEPENDS. IF (yes, big IF) you have a smart charger, or smart inverter/charger AND it has been properly programmed for your battery chemistry, bank size and ambient temperature (or has battery temperature probe)leave it plugged in 24/7/365... Agree, it is an all electric coach so it will have an inverter/charger, not a converter/charger.

RE: Winnebago Windshield Leak Repair near Madison WI

Many cracks/star breaks can be repaired, replacing the windshield is not always necessary. Try NOVUS...just had mine done.

RE: Can your RV handle the high winds of a hurricane?

To answer the question in the subject line...I don't know and don't plan to find out. We were on the Gulf Coast last fall when a hurricane was forecast to hit. We packed up and left...why would anybody in a very mobile vehicle stay around with a hurricane coming??

RE: Winterizing

When putting a diesel in long term storage, a biocide should always be added.

RE: buying another pusher.

The new residential refers only use around 3 amps when running....very low power draw. All electric is the best way to go.

RE: Avoid dark?

Re the roof color....all MH roofs are white, regardless of the other colors.

RE: Avoid dark?

We've had both...the dark colors are noticeably hotter than lighter colors. If I had a choice, definitely light colors.
