RE: Replacement for Onan 4000

I have had motorhomes off and (mostly) on for almost forty years now and have had an Onan problem one time. I forgot that they shut off if the gas level in the rv tank is about 1/4 or less full. About means about I found out. Fortunately, I live in an area where I can store my C within a few miles of my home and our winters are a few days cold, a few days nice for the entire season. So, on a nice day around the first of the month every month I get it out of storage and drive up the highway about 30 miles with the generator running and under load. I stop, eat a burger for lunch in the little town up the road, drive back to the storage and another month's maintenance on the rv and generator is done. One sixty mile trip and a couple of hours time including a burger and fries is a small price to pay to keep my rig ready for travel season. Of course, I change the generator oil, change or clean the filter and do all the other normal maintenance as required as well but I have concluded that exercising it is a cheap price to pay.

RE: Down a truly rough road in my class C?

Several years ago we took our Class C to Chaco Canyon, New Mexico. It was about 20 miles of some of the most rutted road I have ever driven. It took me about an hour and a half to get there and our rig was "shaken and stirred" but fine. The guy in front of me was pulling a nice travel trailer and he was oblivious to the road due to the fact his pickup could handle it just fine...but not the trailer. When we got to the campsites at the park, we camped close to the poor fellow and his wife. I loaned him some of my tools for him to try to put his trailer back to gether. Cabinets had been knocked loose and stuff strewn over the floor. The moral to the story is simple: drive slow and read the road. What was an hour and a half in and the same out as opposed to less time?? A rig that survived without any problems, that's what.

RE: Road Trek MPG

14 mpg honest. I drive full highway speeds except when touring the blue lines on the map. 210 Popular with V8 6 L engine and we always travel with a lot of stuff and full tanks.

RE: Down to Road trek?

Quirky? I never thought of those systems as quirky but I smiled when I read chast's post because..........they are a little quirky. But, they have worked well for us for over twenty years and we have found the systems to be reliable. I still pause when I try to remember which way those valves go to switch between the water tanks so I just always leave them combined and use both tanks. I suspect most owners do the same. I have owned both a MG and a Austin Healey in my past and now THAT is quirky so I probably measure most things compared to "positive earth"!

RE: Down to Road trek?

We had a 96 Roadtrek 190P we bought new and we enjoyed it for six years, sold it and bought a small C, kept it for a few years and then bought a new 2007 Roadtrek 210P. Seven years later, we sold the RT and bought another small C because we had gotten to the point where we camped (boondocked) more and toured less. We tough a Jeep behind the 24 foot C. Add up the lengths of the Jeep, the towing gear and the C and we are about 43 feet long. We have to plan every stop for gas, cannot just "whip in" to a place to grab a bite to eat and so on. When we get where we are going it is great and we spend 2 weeks or so in one boondocking spot using the Jeep to run around. Well, great. The lady that bought our 210P put it up for sale after a few years and guess what? We bought it back from her! She kept it in immaculate condition for a few years and only added a small amount of mileage. It is now back in its home garage on our property, looks like new and runs like new. I can service and take care of all the rv "stuff" on the unit myself and after all these years know those systems pretty well. Our RT has twin beds as opposed to the couch that makes into a bed. That gives us a large storage space accessible from the back. This 210 has an armoire in place of the third seat and the combined interior storage is more than our last C. So is the external storage. I think I am correct that the 210 has more cubic feet of storage than any other B. To make a long story even longer, it has now been 23 years since we bought our first Roadtrek. Driving is more of a chore for us than it was 23 years ago. We can drive for longer distances in a day if we desire, buy gas anywhere and every little town has a "Chevy place" that can work on that chassis. Cramped? Yep, compared to a C any B is a little cramped. Hey, so is a Cessna Citation or a Learjet. So what?

RE: Roadtrek 190 Popular

Here is a link to another forum and my post about building a storage cabinet to replace the third seat. This was on a RT 210P but the same thing will work on a 190. My post is the fourth one down on the thread and I included pictures and details of how I built it. PSW
