Well, we got about 8mo out of a Zero G before it split(using a 40psi reg). That was actually a good thing as in the process of repairing it, I noticed a "white" film on the inside. As such, I elected to demote it to garden hose duty. Gary

RE: Lifting my class C

Lots of great advice given...the one nice thing about those Firestone bags is they don't take much volume so they can quite literally be pumped up with a bicycle pump. Also, check the top bracket on those bags. The one in the picture appears to be angled slightly. The ones on ours are square to the axle. You may not need, or want, the rollers once you have implemented the suggested suspensions upgrades/changes. Gary

RE: Best and worst routes across the Mountains ?

We've taken I40 from Raleigh to AZ. The most dramatic climb was the 6 miles going up to Black Mountain just East of Asheville. Everything after that was far less taxing on the RV. Good luck, Gary

RE: Best Toad Brake controller Battery

Just food for thought...we use a Brake Buddy and tow 5-6 days without starting the Jeep. In the 4 years we have been doing this, we have not had any battery issues. I suspect replacing the Tahoe battery will resolve your issue. And yes, a charge line will certainly eliminate future problems. Gary

RE: How important is tire size to your selection?

The 22.5's are typically on the higher GVWR chassis... An increase CCC is not unusual and perhaps a bit better handling as well. Gary

RE: Class C Chassis

Our Coachmen 28QB is on the GM 4500 chassis. It handles, rides and drives very well. We tow a 4700# Jeep so a little more power would be nice. All in all, either brand will serve you well and most likely outlive the "house". Gary

RE: 2018 coachman freelander 26ds flat towing

We tow a 4660# Wrangler and I know it’s back there! That’s about the absolute limit in my mind.We used to tow a Beetle convert on a dolly, that combo weighed 4000#. That was just a tad better... Gary

RE: need help with motor size

If the OP is referring to a MOPAR...For reference, our first C was a 1978 20' Jamboree on a Dodge chassis powered by their 318! We bought it new and put about 50k miles on it. It took us all over the US with no issues. If maintained, the 460 and Dodge 360 will provide respectable service. If you're asking about the Ford 360, we had a truck with one and it could not pass anything, especially a gas station! Gary

RE: Anyone using the HD Roadmaster Rear Sway Bar RM-1139-163?

I'm not sure you can have too much sway bar on a C. I would go with the 1 5/8 without hesitation... along with poly bushings. I have 1 3/8 on the front and rear with poly bushings and may go larger on the rear this Fall. Gary

RE: Climbing steep grades...

Okay, I40 at Black MT is a 5 mile 6% grade. I run in the right lane and pretty much stay with the trucks and some other RV's. Of course we hit it at 60 or so and then down to 45mph for most of the way. I do let it trail off the last half mile or so just because I don't like to push it as long as I'm not impeding traffic. So, I don't attempt to run up it, or any other long grade, at full throttle. We'm about 18.6k lbs so, below our GCWR of 20K. No heating problems thus far and we've been from NC to WA and everywhere in between. Cheers, Gary

RE: Climbing steep grades...

For reference, we pull a 4500# Wrangler with a 6.0, 6sp, 32' C. running up Black Mountain on I40, our temp creeps up as you mentioned. I run with the "Tow/Haul" mode turned on and the trans does it's thing with downshifting. We are around 25mph when we reach the top. The Scangage shows water temp a touch lower than the instrument cluster by 5 or so degrees. I added another external trans cooler to aid in controlling those temperatures as we travel the Rockies as well with this setup. Gary

RE: Which Michelin for Class C

We've been running the Agilis CrossClimate tires on our 32' C for about 5000 miles. So far so good...they ride well, are quite and seem to handle well. Gary

RE: Route 34 from Estes Park through Loveland Pass

It's a great drive following the Thompson River. Somewhat winding and, of course, pretty much down hill most of the way. This is the route we take every year into and out of Estes Park. Gary

You might want to check out some of the BMW forums for some input on this. Gary

Thanks Drew Gary

RE: Chevy C-5500 Kodiak Duramax potential safety issue!

Help me understand something... doesn't hydraboost utilize the hydraulic pressure from the power steering pump to "boost" the brake pedal? Is there actually an accumulator somewhere that holds some pressure to aid in braking once the engine is off? Gary

RE: How how do I find my tongue capacity?

Way back in our earlier years we had a 250cc Yamaha we carried on a 20' C. Although it was probably only about 200#'s, when mounted on the back it made the steering a bit "light"feeling. We finally moved it to the front bumper and handling was far better. Gary
