RE: faucets

^^^ These. Normally there's nothing special about an RV faucet. I've changed a few myself over the years.

RE: New to RV’ing....and might not last

I'm not sure of your location but if you were anywhere in the area I'd be glad to help you figure it out - as I'm sure many others would too. Other than that, take it one step at a time and enjoy the journey.

RE: Are there good used DP's under $40,000?

The trip is half the fun!

RE: Are there good used DP's under $40,000?

Not mine, looks like something the OP might be looking for; Click for DP

RE: Are there good used DP's under $40,000?

They're out there, for sure. A few years ago a friend of ours sold a 1998 Dutch Star DP for $15k. The thing was well maintained and in excellent shape. Banks don't like the older stuff so he needed a cash buyer. Look around and have the funds available, you'll find one.

RE: Concrete driveway thickness??

Add me to the list; Concrete highways are 12" thick. A 4" highway wouldn't last 24 hours with any real traffic. Heck the 12" ones don't last around here. I'm not a fan a the thump, thump, thumping concrete highways for our part of the country. In the south, sure. In the freeze/thaw areas, not a good idea IMO. In years past I have made fair paydays hauling the slabs when the state decides to cut out 1 bump to put in 2. :B True!

RE: Class A Roadside Assistance

OK I have waited for the appropriate time to add my two cents to this topic. I am curious what makes this time more appropriate than any other. Why not earlier or later? My guess; appropriate story at the appropriate time relating to the appropriate subject. As to the OPs question, my only dealings with AAA on a MH would lead me to NOT recommend them. We had Coachnet, used them once and they were fine. We currently have GS and fortunately haven't had the need to use it. I hope that continues.

When we built our garage we went with 6" thick, 4000# mix with 1/2" rebar on 12" squares topped with mesh holding the in-floor heating tubes. When it had cured we then did relief cuts so there is no span greater than 16' without a cut. We live in a heavy freeze/thaw area, the garage was built in 2001. The floor looks as good today as the day we poured it. With that said, I wouldn't expect good things to happen parking a DP on a 3" slab, but maybe.

RE: Buying RV that's been stored

If properly stored a year of not being used is not a big deal. You don't give much information as to whether or not the unit was plugged in while stored or whether or not it was under cover. Rodent damage can happen even in coaches that are lived in full time as well as roof leaks. Only a thorough inspection can answer your question. This, 100%. In an earlier thread about how long diesel fuel lasts there were many examples of MHs, tractors, and other heavy equipment sitting for long periods of with no issues. One of those examples was me with my farm tractors that get used in the Spring then get parked until the following Spring - and they just sit under a shed roof in the off season.

RE: Sailun tires

Interesting thread. Never heard of this Chinese brand until now. I see the positive testimonials. All I can say is that I HAVE experienced a front tire blow-out on a diesel pusher, and I never want to risk an unpleasant experience like that again. Taking Chinese-made tires out of the equation is my first-line of defense, regardless of testimonials. RV tires are simply not a place to look for cost-savings, IMO, ESPECIALLY with higher gross weight vehicles. The risk is just not worth it, even WITH the bargain-basement prices. On our last MH we had a Michelin blow out, in the garage, while it was parked. I've never owned a Sailun brand tire but based on the reviews and my own experience I'd take my chances with one of them before I'd buy another Michelin.

RE: Driving in windy conditions

If we never drove in the wind we'd never leave the house. It seems regardless of the trip we always get wind in one leg of the trip. I just checked, we currently have a nice 10 mph breeze, which is very typical for us.

RE: Driving in windy conditions

16 MPH isn't "windy", thats more like a breeze. You'll be fine. When you get up into the 40-50 MPH stuff things get a bit more challenging.

RE: Insurance declared value of used motor home

Is yours a full replacement policy? If so, they need to insure it for enough to replace it should something happen.

RE: Grease on rear wheels

Yup - sounds like an axle seal. It happens, get it fixed before it contaminates the brake pads (or shoes).

RE: Length of time diesel fuel stays good in tank

I use my farm tractors in the Spring - once planting is done they sit until the following Spring. I've never treated a tank of fuel and I've never had an issue. Run it, you'll be fine.

RE: Possible CCC Upgrade

Williebago, Can you post a picture of the CCC sticker Newmar put in the unit? It would help us all understand better. Thank you.

RE: 2000 Bounder Electrical Problem

Since you DON'T need a battery to keep a vehicle running (the alternator will do that), it has to be an ignition problem. I don't know if its the case with the OPs MH, but some newer vehicles do need a healthy battery to run. Want to ask me how I know? :B Given the vintage of the OPs MH, I suspect it might.

RE: New Chassis Battery time Cat C7

^^^ This. The ones in our current MH came from a heavy truck dealer. They were about 1/3 less than the normal suppliers and no core charge.

RE: RV Tires

We've replaced Michelins with Yokohamas on our last MH, liked them a bunch. We replaced the Michelins on this one with Bridgestones, like them a bunch too. Notice we've never replaced a Michelin with another Michelin. There is a reason. :W

RE: Source Manager II (25) problems

PM member Larry Cad. He has the same vintage American Coach and is an electrical guru.
