RE: Air Conditioning condensation

My air conditioners put out a lot of condensation it gets in my awning track and ended up creating corrosion to the rivets holding the track i have replaced the rivets but what i would like to know is what types of rain or water diversion systems have been used and lasted for a good period of time. I have seen rain gutters on the internet but which ones hold up. I have also have put silicone on the rivets and track to help with any water damage. Thanks in advance for any input on this subject I would replace the rivets with stainless steel versions. Also consider covering them with calk to keep the water from corroding them.

RE: Concrete driveway thickness??

Concrete highways are normally 4 inches thick to stand up to truck traffic. Call some contractors and ask them. You might be riI ght on the margin of safety. I had a 90 Ft driveway and parking pad poured about 6 years ago. I specified 6000# mix with rebar on 24in center 6 Inches thick. Worked well for our prior coach that was 32K lbs and has performed well for over 2 years with our present coach for over 2 years which weighs 42K lbs with no cracks. I do use 1-1/8 plywood under the tires and smaller wood under the jacks, but so far it has performer well

RE: Passive Steer

Thanks Doug, I had been watching a YouTube on a newer DutchStar with Passive Steer on a Freightliner driving forward in a tight circle that showed how the tag-axle tires were turned out at I believe 12 degrees, I became curious if the tag-axle tires also turn out at 12 degrees when going in reverse, would make getting into a tight campground site much easier. In addition to the tag steering passively, the tag has a control at the driver which allows for 3 additional function selections - 1) Auto will automatically dump the tag air when the trans is put in reverse (no weight on the tag except for the weight of the tag and wheels/tires reducing tag tire scrub, and pivoting on the drive axle) 2) Manual will allow you to dump the air as desired. Helpful when traction is an issue allowing more weight on the drive tires. 3) Disable prevents the tag for dumping the air when backing. I don't believe I have used this selection in 2 years.

RE: Wanna bring a golf cart and a Jeep towed

We're selling our vacation home in SW Fla and plan on using our Challenger for future vacations of a month to 6 weeks. I'm thinking I might want to buy a golf cart to bring along with my Jeep towed. Is there a way to do this? Maybe something to put the golf cart on and then hook up the Jeep. double towing is illegal in some states. an enclosed double deck trailer comes to mind but is likely too heavy for the MH chassis to safely tow. may i suggest that before you embark on this plan that you know and thoroughly understand your Damon's various weight ratings (GCWR, GVWR, GAWR as well as the actual rolling weight of your loaded MH and the items you want to tow. your rubicon likely weighs over 4K pounds by itself. be safe. Trade your Jeep in for the new Jeep pickup and haul your golf cart in the bed of the Jeep. Likely cheaper than a stacker trailer a a whole lot less weight to haul.

RE: 20 year old hoses

My 20 year old American Dream diesel pusher still has all the original cooling and hydraulic hoses. It has been stored indoors all its life and only has 30,000 miles on it, and is in excellent condition (still looks new). The hoses that I can see all look and feel good. Are they due to fail? On our 2 prior coaches, the first we only owned for 4 years and I wasn't concerned about the hoses. Our second one we owned for 15 years and I changed all of the engine coolant hoses at approx 60K miles. Although they appeared OK, it was time to change the coolant so I bought new hoses at NAPA and changed them including the thermostat Never had an issue that left me at the side of the road needing to be towed.

RE: Spartan service Az/Nv

Thanks Bill. Actually called them early this morning before I posted. Waiting for them to get back to us with a price. Already know what parts we need, and how much they are directly from Spartan. Problem we’re having is the shop we usually go to in the Phoenix area quoted us 10 hrs more labor than Spartan says ( 6 ) . The man we talked to in Redlands nailed the labor hours off the bat, so that’s a good sign. Will post when he gets back to us. Was hoping for a place in Arizona or Nevada. We try to stay away from Cali whenever possible Thank you again You might also want to check with Colton Truck in Colton Ca. They are also a Spartan repair facility. While likely not the cheapest around, their techs are very knowledgeable and we have had good service from them. Can't provide input regarding Redlands as have not used them

RE: Bird’s Eye View Camera

I want to install a four camera system to have a bird’s eye view of the coach much like my wife’s Traverse has. I’m sure a lot of newer vehicles probably have those. It makes backing in a tight space or when there is sun glare a breeze. I’ve found one on Tadibrothers website and a couple of others. I haven’t found anyone with experience installing one on a coach. I don’t mind running the wires and mounting the cameras but I want to know that it’s going to work correctly with a clear image and without skewed lines when it’s done. Has anyone done this on their coach? Ours is 42’ so it would need a lot of image correction to get rid of the skewed image. We have a similar system which is factory installed. Amazing what you can see via this. I remember seeing a post regarding a company that does this for vehicles including motorhomes, but can't find it now. It may have been a different forum, but your answer is out there.
