RE: To DP or not DP

My experience is with Cummins so would likely stay with that. This link seems reasonable to me and I'm sure you can find many more opinions. http://www.luxurycoachlifestyle.com/forums/showthread.php?t=4697

RE: To DP or not DP

When buying be aware. I'll pick at the prior Newell link which is a quality coach. New Aguahot could be $9,000. 20KW gen suggests an all electric rig. Note a 50A plug is 12KW. You might need the gen at a 50A site and will definitely need it boon docking. Get 4 slides or full wall for full timing. But at $99K it might be fantastic and 138K miles is not a lot. I have no direct experience with it's engine but I would think long and hard before buying a Detroit 60. Ditto for Cat which is no longer offered for road vehicles.

RE: To DP or not DP

I agree with the ride and other luxury benefits of a DP. But they are much more expensive. You have a very heavy vehicle (mine is 38K lbs) which has heavy and expensive parts. Tires run $500+ each for just the tire. My air filter cost $160. I'm about to have the 10 shocks replaced and the shock price is $150. And the list goes on. Just suggesting you know upfront that they can be are are expensive. Many like to suggest that oil etc is the same as a gasser due to the 15K mileage possibility, maybe but the other expenses not so much.

RE: What is going on!!!!!!!!!

I was concerned that a simple hole might allow water to escape into the insulated area when filing so I added a 6" riser and covered it with a loose cap for bugs, dust, etc.

RE: Any reverse snowbirds out there?

The west coast has one big air conditioner - the Pacific Ocean. Plus plenty of mountains above 4,000 ft in the western mountains.

RE: DirecTV DNS changes

DTV and Nexstar that owns about 190 stations are in dispute and all of those stations are off DTV. Wish they would would fix the double posting on this board which is due to the invalid errors that trigger this.

RE: outside cook center

My son needs one of those! Brand and model please? I added a high pressure propane tap as it will work with any BBQ. There can be issues with a low pressure tap.

RE: A truck repair shop gave up 2002 Monaco

We have called everyone Cummins in Chattanooga was the first running out of placesI wasn't clear call the mfg. Or take it to a good Cummins shop vs a phone call. You might consider a coach care shop. However, other than a power plug and keeping the inside clean they may not be any better than a normal Cummins shop.

RE: What is going on!!!!!!!!!

Plastic tanks expand when full, just install a anti siphon T and short riser to resolve. My riser is 6" long with a loose cap on the top.

Have you called Cummins with the S/N? Maybe join the Power Club. I would hope a good Cummins shop could also easily locate it.

RE: Best route from Biggs Junction to Coos Bay

126 from Eugene is a good route but don't go through downtown. Take the 569 Beltline. BTW Diesel at Freddies on the north side of Florence is $2.99, use the inside lane furthest from 101. Plus points for future fuel discounts.

RE: Need help, upgrading Dometic Analog Thermostat to Digital

Contacting Dometic is the proper way to go. They can tell you which digital thermostat is compatible with their system .....if any.X2 Additional equipment may also be required.

RE: house batterys

Replace them but a voltmeter may have given you advance warning. Load testing could also be helpful. And if not sealed a hydrometer should reveal a bad cell. Don't delay and be very careful as batteries can explode.

RE: Truck with 5ver towing a boat

Other than a drivers license there is no reciprocity on driving laws between states. Can't exceed speed limits for example. Double towing if allowed in a state may have length restrictions. While I don't believe reciprocity applies to double towing, it's a little more nuanced than that. For example, I can drive in California without meeting California emissions rules.OK good point but if you live or work in CA for some time you have to register the vehicle and that requires passing emissions in many counties. Not all counties require emission testing. Best to remember the towing speed limit is 55. The worst offenders of this are Californians IMHO. And me as I flow with most trucks at 61-62.

RE: Campground Breakers - EDITED

ivylog, Thanks for the update. With a all electric rig they would be candidates for a PI HW50C with inside remote since they have to manage their electric usage. Kinda wonder about a 50A autoformer also. But in 15 years I've only had low voltage at one CG on 50A but, my rig is not all electric. Of course I anticipate low voltage on 30A.

RE: Things to do in Alaska?

A great boat trip is on the Danny J from Homer Spit to Halibut Cove. Beautiful trip and Halibut Cove is where Oto Kilcher picked up the horses because the summer grass is poison to them. Oto of the Alaskan the Last Frontier TV show.

RE: Things to do in Alaska?

Nice picture. If you ask an Alaskan they will tell you they are going to split the state so that Texas is the third largest state. Also interesting to overlay Alaska on the lower 48 as it stretches from Savannah to San Francisco. We enjoyed the Barge 8 and Riverboat tours in Fairbanks. 230 miles? Isn't that just an Alaskan commute? Of course Denali and other interesting sights are on along the trip south. A very interesting CG on the way to Homer is Deep Water State CG and it's boat launching. But there is so much more to the Kenai Peninsula that I could type for hours. We arrived at Hope for their CG but all of the town roads were closed for a wedding. We tried to stay on the Kenai River during the salmon run but there was an Alaskan every 6'. And bad traffic as the taxis were taking the floaters back upstream. That's Alaska! And a few more hundred miles will get you to Valdez which was also enjoyable.
