RE: Class A Tire Recommendation

Did you do the front end work?

RE: Long trips

One of the reasons we traded back in '07 was Newmar had expanded the use of Comfort Drive across the entire diesel line - best move we've ever made in our RV life. We did a 5,500 mile Yellowstone run in 10 days a few years back. We do a 10 hour run to Richmond Virginia a few times a year with no worries. We used to have a TT as well as our MH. A few years ago we were doing a group gathering. I towed the TT the 1.5 hours to the campground, then drove home to get the MH. The TT was set up with all the best towing equipment, plus my truck is a Super Duty diesel. On the way down I was thinking how much $$$ we could save if we kept the TT and sold the MH. When I got back on the road with the MH I was about 2 miles into the trip when I said to myself "what the heck were you thinking?" The TT is gone, the MH isn't. If all we ever did was short local trips I think a TT might work. For TRAVELING its tough to beat a MH.

RE: How important is tire size to your selection?

I would never consider the 19.5s, they won't handle the weight capacity for a true Class A. Bll The Ford F53 chassis was only built for one purpose - "true Class A motorhomes", and for YEARS the 19.5 was the only tire size offered. :h As to the OPs question, bigger is always better.

RE: Is there any difference in DRIVING a gas class A vs diesel?

Years ago we were considering a diesel pusher. Our friends who owned them all said the same thing; "do not drive one unless you are ready to sign the papers". They were 100% correct.

RE: Class A motorhomes with a Ford V10 Chassis

In a word, NO. One of the more reliable gasoline engines ever used in an RV. This.

RE: Anyone interested in 83 Pace Arrow Tear down and Rebuild?

Is there a target date to have this project finished? Or at least a projected year? Decade maybe? June 2020.

RE: Cost if Class A diesel pusher inspection

My friend had 28000 miles on his 40 ft tiffin and the cost to get it home and repaired was $47000.00. 4 different tows but mayor engine work plus other issues. Looked new also needed new injectors and a new radiator from the repair but not included. Shop paid the cost. wish you the best result. chevman Meanwhile, the other 999,999 are on the road trouble free. :R As far as an inspection, call your local truck shop and see what they have to offer.

RE: made up own towing system

Years ago I made/fabricated the vehicle attachment for my '95 Dodge Stratus. I towed the car for years without issue.

RE: Ford V10 vs Chevy Gas

The spark plug issue was over-hyped by the internet, surprise. If you happen to be one with an issue its easily fixable. My level of concern would be zero. As far as the 8.1, lately there seems to have been more than a few posts on them going BOOM - not enough to make me scared of one, but enough that I noticed it.

RE: RV Refrigerator in cold weather

We've camped in 15F weather before with no issues, including the fridge. Enbelthens thoughts on the ice maker are valid, IMO.

RE: tow vehicle

The problem with a trailer is you have a third thing to park when you arrive. Flat towing doesn't have that issue.

RE: Newmar Gas and Diesel Opinions

We've owned (3) Newmars, bought them all new, if we ever decide on another motorhome it will be another Newmar. Our current one is 13 years old, it still looks, runs, drives, and acts like the day it was built.

RE: Freightliner chassis

^^^ On the steering column, are you referring to Comfort Drive or something else? I don't believe Daimler had anything to do with Comfort Drive. I could be wrong.

RE: questions on parking dp vs gas on grass

I drive on grass all the time. We park there too. Unless its extremely wet its never been an issue. As to the height question, ours raises a bunch when its aired up.

RE: Blown engine

There are much cheaper places to have the work done than a dealer. Check around. Agreed. Lots of used engines out there too.

RE: Torque on Lug Nuts

Whenever anyone (well, . . . besides myself) touches the wheels, tires, suspension components, etc., on ANY vehicle I own, drive, etc., I ALWAYS check/retorque at least a few of the lug nuts/bolts before I leave visual range of the shop that just worked on it. I don't enjoy getting stuck with a flat tire, at night, while it's raining/pouring in the middle of nowhere with a lug nut/bolt that was torqued to 450 ft-lbs and now I CAN'T GET IT OFF with the tools I have. The factory spec on the MH is 150 ft-lbs. Chum lee Factory specs on ours is 450#. My biggest torque wrench only goes to 300#. Might be time,for a torque multiplier.

RE: Anyone interested in 83 Pace Arrow Tear down and Rebuild?

Try using a flap wheel on your Ryobi 4-1/2" grinder. Its crude sanding but fast and efficient. I took a little bit off a small section of plywood that way this weekend. Works well.

RE: Anyone interested in 83 Pace Arrow Tear down and Rebuild?

^^^ Uh...yeah. Maybe a few more legs too, but thats just me.,
