RE: Yipping little dogs!! Ugh!!

My opinion is that dog owners are responsible for keeping their dogs from being a nuisance in any way and that includes excessive barking. So, perfectly within your rights to complain or ask them to stop the barking or move. How would they like it if you stood near them and barked, screeched, talked very loudly or with a loud radio. No difference in my opinion.

RE: How High???

Just measured recently so I could wright it on the dash. I'm saying 11 feet 6 inches for our Class C and that should allow some error. Don't forget the AC. Ironically, just days later I got lost in a city and encountered an underpass at 11 ft. 6 in. Needless to say I didn't try it. There were signs and flashing lights saying "turn right".

RE: Going to the Sun Road

I agree but how can you use "caution" about rocks falling from above. I think you either have to stay off or take your chances with nature. We've driven it dozens of times. Just one of thousands of things that can go wrong on the road.

RE: Major suspension/steering upgrade

We have 67000 miles. Sorry I can't specify all the parts at this time. I'll try to re-post after I know the outcome. It was a big decision but not really after doing the math. We might get $14000 for it; certainly less if we traded. We could find a nice affordable replacement for $25K to 40K. However, who knows what it would need during the 1st year.

RE: Tips for Traveling with Other Couples

Tip 1- Don't. Just kidding, sort of. I think it's risky, especially if you're a little rigid and compulsive like us. We've done it twice with the same couple for several days. We are still friends but example problems: They had an old dog and took forever to get ready to hit the road and it would be "one more thing" just before leaving. They had a big 5th wheel and had to use a much longer approach to refueling, finding a site, etc. One day we needed to drive all day to reach an agreed upon campground and we finally left without them. Nearly ended our joint travels but I'd do it again.

Major suspension/steering upgrade

We have just made a decision somewhat based on faith. We have a 15 year old 30 ft. C on the Ford E-450 chassis that we still like and plan to keep. But recently, the steering has become stressful and even dangerous. We started with bushing replacement to take some of the play out at a motor home friendly front end shop. But we quickly decided- improved but not enough. The installer discussed with us other options up to a total suspension upgrade(which we decided to do) costing over $3000. His claim is that the improvement will be dramatic. I should know what it all involves but I just know it is a whole package of parts. $2500 parts; 5 hours labor. Comments? Support? or you've messed up.

RE: Want an electric truck?

Not sure that battery powered all electrics will be "the future". Another source of power may be developed before truly long range batteries are. Evolution of combustion motors is also still occurring.

RE: New to RVing.....please help

I suggest you go to some RV shows and dealers and walk around a few campgrounds visiting with people before taking yours out. You're really starting from zero and there's a lot to learn. Also, go through the manual that comes with the unit and if it doesn't have one, get one.

RE: snowbirding

Reserve now. Lots of nice state parks, Army Corps of Engineers and other public campgrounds scattered through those states but anything near the coast and far south will be in high demand. I don't worry about wildlife as there are far more likely dangers; such as traffic, etc. Just keep away from the edge of the water; especially after dark. There's probably 2 or 3 incidents a year involving alligators.

RE: Want an electric truck?

Looks like Ford is going for an electric truck. This might be 1 more of many mistakes they are making. Personally I think the death of the sedan is premature and unwise also. I like our 2017 Ford Focus in spite of the disastrous dual clutch trans. With the MPG and $17000 I paid for a nearly new one gas for it's life will still make it lower cost than an electric and it performs better. We still don't have batteries for a truly practical, all- purpose vehicle not to mention the cost.

RE: Extended Warranty Not Covering Parts Cost

Just more evidence to pass on any extended warranty on any item. Just don't buy an item unless you always have enough reserve cash to cover even more repairs and more expensive repairs than anticipated. Save the warranty cost and come out ahead over a lifetime almost guaranteed.

RE: About to buy a TT, so confused, could use some help.

Probably could but shouldn't. Lots of factors to consider when borderline overloaded; braking, acceleration steep grades, stress on trans, suspension, cooling, etc, etc.

RE: Thinking of a Class C

In 40+ years we've had pop-ups, hybrid trailer, small 5th wheel. 7 years ago we purchased a 10 year old Winnebago 31 ft. Class C and still are enjoying it. The MH is my top choice for many reasons; easy backing, onboard generator, good sized tanks and easiest set up and take down. But they all have +s and -s. The MH doesn't drive as nicely as a truck. For us we need a car to drive and towing one is no picnic. As far as money, I think you can set any price over $20000 or so and get a decent used one. Personally, I'll stick with Winnebago but with a used one, condition and service history might be as important.

RE: Ice cream?

Ours does in our 15 year old motor home. Most of the time is is quite solid but less so if we crowd the frig. It has a cold setting from 1 to 5 and we adjust from 3 to 4. I think having our burner replaced helped even more. I don't have an answer but I think something is wrong if it doesn't keep ice cream edible?

RE: Tow/Haul off or on(ram)

I think TH often keeps it out of the highest gear but I still think the computer will let it if conditions warrant; Very flat, no wind, etc.

RE: Georgia for snowbird

Yes you will need to like it cool; 50's to 70 would be typical but sub freezing occasionally. But you will get less crowding and more available sites. Lots of really nice USACE sites. We like northern, inland FL for same reasons.

RE: New member with used class c

Went from a small 5th wheel to a used 30 ft. C 7 years ago. We still like the 16 year old C with 2 slides very much. I like the backing in, the generator and more. I first worried about a drop in MPG from the truck to the MH but the Ford Focus we tow more than makes up for it. We've put a lot of money into it but there is no cheap RVing.

RE: Break Out Another Thousand....

Someone said that used cost about as much as new. Nope, not the way I would do it. By "used" I mean used enough to cost half or less of a new one. In our case we purchased a 9 year old unit that cost around $80000 new for $23000. Only 20000 miles. In other words it had depreciated over $50000. We've spent plenty on it but no where near $50000. More like $10000 in 7 years. And don't forget "new' becomes "used" as soon as you sign the papers. Don't over rate the warranty.

RE: Break Out Another Thousand....

If and when we have a trip with no significant problems we break out the champagne. It's going to cost regardless of how you do it. New MH is out of the question. Used is better but still a thousand here, 3 thousand there. A tent or used pop-up is the only way to be inexpensive.

RE: RV lifestyle...

I don't get it; that is, putting out all that junk; pardon me, decorations. We have out 2 chairs and a small (not 9 by 12 that kills all the grass) mat and that's it.
