RE: Cost to repair or replace half a windshield?

snip// Generaly The first question asked by the window company is are you paying for it or going thru your insursnce.The differences in cost could be a few hundred dollars. That is really one of my hot buttons. The work and labor is the SAME. Why should it really matter. Same with health care. If your insurance is paying for it, it's cheaper than if you don't use the insurance. Stupid rules....rant over....Dennis

RE: Ceramic Waxes

I'd get a bottle and do my car. If it works as described, then I'd do my coach. If not, you've spent very little time, effort and money and you're done. Looks like a great alternative providing it's not some hyped up snake oil. My experience has been these waxes are easier to apply but do not last as long as the old trusty smear on, buff off waxes, so you might have to redo the coach 3-4 times a year instead of annually.......Dennis

RE: Any option for re-filling MH Propane Tank from Small Tank?

Simplest, and most effective, solution is to call a propane company that delivers, explain your situation and ask them for a solution. Most likely they will have one of their trucks meet you somewhere (safe) to fill your tank. Now if you're in downtown New York or Los Angeles it's not going to happen but most everywhere else, it's a no brainer.....Dennis

RE: Too old to drive ?

I've seen a lot of 30 year olds that shouldn't be driving let alone driving a motor home. :) Coming back from California this past week, I was passed by a 30 something in a truck pulling about a 32' trailer. I was doing 80mph, (in my car, we didn't take the moho) and he passed me like I was sitting still. I would estimate just a bit shy of 100mph....age isn't the only thing that makes for dangerous drivers.....Dennis

RE: Help/ Fresh Water Tank

I, too would suspect a water line to burst before the tank would. That is, unless the tank was compromised earlier. Two 1500 heaters seem like overkill to me anyway. Best thing is assess the damage and then decide what to do. If it is, in fact, the fresh water tank, call your insurance agent. On a side note, unless you're boondocking, and it doesn't sound like you are, why do you have water in the fresh water tank anyway? I'd drain that knowing it's going to get that cold. I'm sure the water lines in the park are of luck. I hope it turns out to be a simple break in the water line. Shark Bite fittings at Home Depot are the best.....Dennis

RE: Heated bays

Consider joining the Monacoers. Good forum, good info. Also, you should have a basement heater that monitors those things and keeps them warm at night. The sensor should be below the Manabloc assembly. If you're still worried about keeping things warm a simple shop light with a 60watt bulb will do the trick. Seven bucks at Lowes....Dennis

RE: Need Help with a route from Yuma AZ to Illinois in mid April

1. Check the cost of having someone experienced pick up the coach and drive it home. Someone not used to a large vehicle may have some issues you don't want to deal with. I went from a 30' gasser to a 40' diesel and used 4 hours of seat time around the Houston area at 2am just to get a "feel" of the rig before driving it back to California. Towing will make it just that much more difficult. 2. If hubby and/or friend are familiar with large vehicles, and/or are determined they can make this journey SAFELY, for them and others on the road, then I'd use Google maps and enter destination and starting point. They will provide several different routes to get you back to Illinois. The southern route will be the simplest with no snow to be worried about. Northern routes in April can be iffy. We are headed east in April ourselves and I have mapped out the northern and southern routes depending on weather conditions. How long will they drive in a day? Figure 45-55 miles per hour average. The tires, even if new, probably aren't rated for higher speeds. Towing, I wouldn't think of over 60mph at any time. 3. I'd take I-8 East from Yuma to I-10 East towards Tucson. Stay on I-10 to Las Cruces, NM then take US 70 north past White Sands Missle range, (4 mile climb) to Clovis,NM. Take US 60 north from Clovis to Amarillo, Texas. From there it's all interstates depending on where you want to go in Illinois. 4. Another option, which might be the safest/easiest, is for one to drive the coach and the other drive the jeep. Stop at truck stops, sleep in the coach and continue on. The savings on hotel rooms will pay for the cost of driving the jeep. If you tell us where in Illinois you're headed we can provide further info...Dennis

RE: Window fog

My experience has been any good glass shop can repair dual pane windows...key word being "good"....replacing a dual pane window with a single pane will defeat the purpose of the dual pane to begin with. Think better insulation and less noise....Dennis

RE: Need an Education

snip/ Thank all of you who DID explain why you leave your rigs running. We had no idea jacks and slides needed the motors on, and learned alot more about the big rigs we also didnt know, so thank all of you FRIENDLY rv'ers who didnt tell me why I posted here at all. I got more of an education than I needed.Thank you Perhaps, if you brewed a quick cup of coffee and visited the neighbor who left his rig running and was seated, you'd get more of an education of the foibles of diesel coaches. You might also meet a new 'friend'. Afterall, aren't we all proud of our rigs? I have no issue making new acquaintances at whatever campground we are at. Perhaps he was having an issue with his coach and could have used your assistance. Meeting people and being friendly is what rving is all about. Get out and start enjoying life and all it has to offer....Dennis

RE: Advice and experience with older DP Class A's

Remember too, mileage on a DP is irrelevant and may be a deterrent. Low mileage means the coach hasn't been driven. Diesels are meant to be driven and thrive on being run. Most recommend driving at least 45 minutes every month. I realize these are recommendations. thanks. Anyway, IMO, the condition of the coach should be looked at closely. If the coach was lived in 24/7, parked somewhere, it will have low miles but could be compromised. Parking near either ocean is a negative due to salt air. Same with a coach that is parked in say, New York year round. Snow/ice/salt are not friends to any coach. Look first at the interior lay out. Will either/both work for you. Then look closely at the condition of the interior. Does it look used/worn etc. Was the coach lived in or simply parked in a storage lot most of it's life? What about maintenance records. Most dealers throw away any information left with the coach. I traded my 96 Dynasty with every dime ever spent on it documented in a notebook with receipts etc. The dealer tossed it and the new owner had to rely on the "truth" of the salesman. The new owner found out too late I was not a little old lady from Pasadena as the salesman had told them. Either of the coaches you listed were quality coaches. I'm a bit partial to Monaco but the Eagle was a very close second. If they have a Cummins engine, all the service information is stored in their computers and can be pulled at any Cummins shop. I'd demand those before making a firm offer. Post what engine/tranny combo each have and we can offer suggestions on their reliability history. Some of the older coaches were underpowered. Finally, drive them both off and on the freeways. I think you'll enjoy the rides.....Dennis

RE: Need an Education

I have a "procedure" I've followed for the past 13 years or so. I start the engine, set the idle up and while the coach is airing up, I disconnect the sewer and water. When I hear the governor kick off I go back inside, kick down the idle and turn off the coach. I then pull in the slides as per mfgs recommendations and complete my preflight checklist. I start her up again and pull out. Sometimes I will leave it idle while hooking up the toad which takes all of three minutes. If this procedure "offends" anyone...too bad. It's what works for me. Get earplugs.....Dennis

RE: Class A travel without interstates

I use google maps if I'm not sure of a route. Usually hairpin turns etc. Using street view you can cruise to your heart's delight. Over 100,000 miles on our coach and less than 15,000 are interstate miles. I love old farmhouses and barns, my wife loves old churches. You won't see either traveling the interstates. Nothing on the Interstates cept traffic and asphalt/concrete. No thanks. You'll be pleasantly surprised at what happens in the small cities. Your travels will take quite a bit longer though. We don't travel more than 150-200 miles in one day and stay a week or longer when we stop. Use the toad to visit the many many things you'll see in the out of the way places......Dennis

Gander Outdoors

Anyone have any ideas about Camping World buying Gander Outdoors. I know they purchased them in 2019 and changed the CW in Mesa to Gander Outdoors. I noticed they have now changed it BACK to Camping World. Seems like an expense that didn't have to be made. Anyone like Gander better than CW. Prices mdse etc???...Dennis

RE: Class A creature comforts at FHU stays

I had a condo when I was younger. I have more creature comforts in my coach than I did in that condo. Aqua Hot is a must (instant hot water as long as you want it) Macerator is a must (flip a switch and your tanks empty) Washer/Dryer are a must, (public washers are gross) Bath and a half are close to being a must. Residential fridge is a must. (cold beer and hard ice cream) Finally, make sure your mattress fits your body....good night's sleep is a must. Also consider the quality of the coach you're looking at. Have someone stand about 20 feet away and talk...if you can hear them inside your coach, keep looking. Ours is insulated well with dual pane windows. Quiet inside. We have 3 15000BTU heatpumps that are quiet. We also have the floor furnace through the AH. You don't know it's on. Enjoy your search....Dennis
