RE: Fleetwood ratings

Is this brand mechanically as good as a Winnebago, Tiffin or Newmar? NO what roof material does the fleetwood have? Bumpy

RE: To DP or not DP

NOTE that folks here who say that maintenance on a dp is not expensive,will confess to doing their own work on them. buy what you need, not what you are "talked into". bumpy

RE: Truck with 5ver towing a boat

My BIL was pulled over in Minnesota for pulling a boat behind his 5th wheel, and told his 5th wheel was too long by 6 inches. By 6 inches? To know, the officer would have had to measure. Who held the other end of the tape? :hWhen was the last time you had a disagreement with a highway patrolman...and won? :). I have. I point blank stated facts and he backed down. my neighbor, the former chief of police, had the philosophy that in case of disagreement, write up the ticket, the perp would have to take off work, come 1000 miles back to argue the case in court. but I am curious as to exactly what was "backed down" on? bumpy

RE: They Better Not Screw Us Up

I wouldn't be surprised if some folks showed up, stayed just outside the restricted area, and moved about, sort of jerking the govt's chain. bumpy

RE: New style entry steps

has anybody considered having to make a quick emergency exit in case of fire etc. with the steps in/up? bumpy The steps would never be in/up if you are inside the trailer. Some trailers have two doors, like mine. some trailers have one door.like mine. of course if I had a second door, it might be located on the bathroom wall so we could all pass thru there entering and exiting. bumpy

RE: New style entry steps

has anybody considered having to make a quick emergency exit in case of fire etc. with the steps in/up? bumpy The steps would never be in/up if you are inside the trailer. so you pull into a rest stop, have to quickly deploy steps to park and enter RV, then have to lift up steps and close door?????? bumpy

RE: New style entry steps

is there a video of these in use anywhere? from looking at the pictures it seems that this "step ladder" is hinged up into the door opening and then the door is closed. bumpy Here - You Tube thanks, sure that isn't somebody's idea of a joke? drag that dirty/wet/unwieldy thing in and out. might be useable on a 5er or TT but not on a motorhome. bumpy

RE: New style entry steps

My concern is this. (I do not have them by the way) Sometimes when I'm parked my steps are actually touching the ground. other times it's a "Big step" to the first step. With those "new style" you are going to end up with tilted steps (not flat) and it can be very tilted.. In fact if the entry side of the RV is high enough you are climbing a ladder not a stairway. sounds like a bad idea to me. bumpy

RE: EZ-Pass?

Question can we just pay the toll as we drive through? Don't want something that I have to keep a minimum balance on. We probably won't be through those states for a long time. some roads are ezpass only, and there may be times that they are unmanned. IIRC my "deposit" was $25 and whenever my balance dipped below $15 they would raise it. bumpy

RE: Virginia I -81 corrider gas tax.

This cracks me up. Someone from PA, who travels I-81 in Virginia frequently, is "outraged" by our fuel prices? I'm pretty outraged by the condition of PA's roads when I try to drive up there, and their fuel prices are higher. Perhaps you'd rather pay a toll to travel 81, like I-77 through West Virginia? I always was apprehensive on the PA turnpike years back when the only thing between you and vehicles coming at you 7 ft away at 70 mph was some chicken wire. bumpy

RE: Please confirm what I think I already know

when running multiple heavy draw devices and everybody else in the park is cooking supper, running ACs, etc. you may be able to run stuff but check your voltmeter and you may be surprised that you are now running on 104/5 volts and not doing your devices any favor. bumpy

RE: Please confirm what I think I already know

with 30 amp service, I again quote a previous poster: "You do make a good point, the OP DOES need to learn to "manage" HEAVY loads. OP must learn to manually shed loads when a lot of heavy loads are needing to be used at one time." bumpy
