RE: Tag axle question

The alum rims are all the same... a steering tag is wider than a tag that raises so the rim goes on the same as the front axle. Most of the rigs with steering tags have 10+K lbs on them and raising it would overload the drive axle and tires by 50+%.

RE: Celebrating our 50th anniversary...

My wife got Sainthood at 50 for having put up with me. Congrats!!!!! We are headed West next week, not enough years left to put life on hold. Easier to social distance out there than most places.

RE: New to RV’ing....and might not last

Congrats on going big and saving several steps. On IRV2 there is a Fleetwood section which would get better answers to your A Eagle specific questions. Yes the learning curve is pretty steep but a lot of free good info available. Fleetwood https://www.irv2.com/forums/f107/If

RE: towing Prius with tow dolly

Yes, not on a dolly but only the back tires on the ground. https://i.imgur.com/FiHmwS7l.jpg

RE: Buying RV that's been stored

OH my, in storage for a year and it’s fallen apart. Check fluids and tire pressures and take it for a test drive.

RE: Trip to granby

I did 9/24 last summer and other than 9 south of Breckinridge, a OK route. Like ^^^ some of 24 is boring and hard to pass. You’ll be going downhill in that switchback section so it will be easier. I-70/40 is probably faster if the Denver traffic doesn’t hold you up.

RE: Water pressure - why does pump run when city water connected

Just turn the pump off unless you need the extra pressure and yes, you’ll eventually empty the tank.

RE: Heads up to anyone coming to NY

Unfortunately Florida didn’t enforce a mandatory 14 days quarantine of the NYers back in April fleeing NY. Guess why SE FL has twice the #s as the rest of FL? What a joke NY has for a governor and the killer NYC mayor... requiring cases returned to nursing homes. Not sure why anyone would want to go to NY. Sorry upstate but the rest of your state sucks.

RE: Least stressful route from Hiawassee, GA to Pikeville, TN?

64 is a much better road today... one of my favorite in a 45’ MH except for the slow moving 4 wheelers from FLa. The 2 bad curves have been widened through the Ocoee gorge... the only curvy part as much of it is a divided 4 lane, Unfortunately once in the gorge there are not many places where you can pull over and get out of the way.

RE: SWFL to Hiawassee Ga pulling a 30 ft TT

Straight through ATL on I-75 non rush hour to I-575 to Blairsville (dividend 4 lane with 2 small pulls). 2 lane on to Hiawassee. You could take 129 in Macon to 441 all the way to Cornelia but you will not like GA 75 after Helen.

RE: Newer Coach

Newer from a 99 implies up to 2004 so plenty of other Monaco rigs in that price range. Seems like parts for a older Safari chassis may be hard to find... otherwise a descent rig. If it's on the Magnum chassis (8 airbags) not a problem.

RE: Domestic water pump quit working

The controller/latching relay located as ^^^^ may have a fuse and/or a relay near it. The relay is a fairly common type reminding me I need to get a spare one.

RE: Newer Coach

Unless you are wanting a mid entry coach, why limit your search to just a Safari??

RE: Towing or packing a Smart Car on the back of a Class A

It's air suspension and the tag is adjustable. Possibly with the tag set to 10,000 lbs it could make up the difference of the steel structure and car weight located about 13' behind the tag. Right now I can't quickly get my head around the lever arm math. Even though the suspension can be raised 6" with modification that would be an very poor choice for traveling but works well for air leveling. I suspect that the stability and safety of a RV is compromised with a car on the back. Probably is fine for normal traffic. That’s 1800 lbs off the rear, on 3 DPs over 120+K miles. Takes 700 lbs off the front axle https://i.imgur.com/bdN0N07l.jpgwidth=700

RE: Length of time diesel fuel stays good in tank

At 10 years I’d start to worry.

RE: Towing or packing a Smart Car on the back of a Class A

OP, if you still have the Bounder in your signature... NO WAY can you put 1800 lbs on a rack on the back. Like Mike said above that’s going to put 3000+ lbs on your rear axle. Get a trailer or a dolly.

RE: fluxuating oil pressure gage

I would look into a Silverleaf monitor... probably less than taking it in. Silverleaf

RE: Water in fuel light came on then off

The sensor is fairly sensitive to water (go figure) so when the area around it gets wet it can give you a false positive ... fairly normal.

RE: What $125,000 gets you in Germany

I’ve gotten out of many a car and MH when my head scrapes the ceiling. Throw in small tanks and limited storage, I’ll keep my fuel guzzling DP with 7’ ceilings. Now I might be tempted with this German made one with the Smart Car in the back. https://i.imgur.com/BAFoUJbl.jpg

RE: Salvage title???? update with pics

In many states you cannot get a tag with a salvage title... it has to be inspected $$ and a rebuilt title is then issued. Some insurance companies will not let you cover comb and collision with a rebuilt title. Need to make some calls for your state.
