RE: Complaints about Cost of Mhs vs Motels

Not sleeping in a bed that any Tom, Dick and Harry have slept in priceless to me. My wife likes motels I don't I let her win every so often.

RE: Is there any difference in DRIVING a gas class A vs diesel?

I did not read all the replies but if you tow having an exhaust brake sure is nice.

RE: Dome Satellite is it capable of getting service??

I have the Pro and went with the releasable roof mount...best of portable and fixed mount! My current dish is over the drivers area on the MH that is pretty high off the ground to install and remove. I wanted to install the new dish in place of the old dish. This is a Class A and it is probably 11-12' off the ground. I have a ladder on the rear off the coach but I really don't want to have to get on the roof. I am not scared of heights I am a retired lineman it just seems like a hassle but I may end up doing that.

RE: Dome Satellite is it capable of getting service??

Follow up we have not been able to get the old dish to work with the Walley receiver. I have dealt with Dish and their tech support and tech support from KVH. The guy from KVH says the dish will work with an older receiver one of the 211 series receivers but it will only track one satellite and I won't get all the channels. You can hear the dish moving and it even shows it locking on but it is still not working. I am going to just get a newer dish and use this Walley receiver. Now I just have to make up my mind about mounting it in place of the old dish or leaving it portable. I just ordered the Tailgater Pro.

RE: Is there any difference in DRIVING a gas class A vs diesel?

I have had 3 class A motorhomes starting with a 73 Winnebago that was a couple of years ago she had bias ply tires oh what a beating you took until the flat spots were ran out in the tires. I had a 2001 Fleetwood 31' on the workhorse chassis. The good and bad on this MH the engine was a big block Chevy with fuel injection it got a solid 10 MPG and towed a jeep wrangler like it wasn't there. The bad it blew all over the road in the wind it was a white knuckle driving experience. When a truck passed it would first blow you away then suck you back after the truck passed and you got the air wash it would shake. The wind could shift this thing several feet all at once. Quality of build was low entry level. My current class A is a Fleetwood expedition on a Freightliner chassis and a Cat C7 engine with an Alison transmission. Handling, ride & noise is better it is a much heavier machine than the 01 gasser so I can't say it is more powerful weight to HP ratio. The build quality is better with the Expedition better wood and appliances upholstery Etc. I would have liked the 01 MH if it had a better build quality and had better handling. I believe some of the handling was the amount of overhang from the rear axle to back of coach. When the wind hits this area of the coach it acts like a baseball bat that coupled with no weight to speak of in this part of the coach creates a problem. When towing the jeep it actually helped the handling which to me also confirmed my assumption.

RE: Dome Satellite is it capable of getting service??

I contacted Dish today and they told me my TracVission LF/SF will work with Dish. They told me that my system was a high end dish that they normally see on boats. I questioned them and the guy was in tech support and said it would work. I ordered a receiver so I guess I will see when it comes in. I won't be out anything because if it doesn't work I will just buy a new dish I need the receiver either way.

RE: made up own towing system

I have made 2 tow bars for jeeps and I fabricated my own bumper with hitch on a 30' class A motor home that was stronger and better than any bumper I have seen since. The bumper was made from 4" x 6" 1/4" wall tube. It was tied back into the frame in several spots on each side. It had 3" solid steel wheels with greaseable pins for when the MH drug bottom going in and out of some driveways. I have built flat beds for trucks and built trailers. It really depends on your skill level. Some stuff I have seen that came from an Import factory scares me more than a well built home made project. I have also seen home built stuff that scares me.
