RE: New Class A Winnebago owners

We have a 2008 Itasca SunCruiser 35L that we bought in 2011 with 6,400 miles on it. We put about 5,000 miles per year on it and have had very few issues. Ours came with terrific manuals, and I have links to additional manuals on-line. I try to do most of the work myself, but use a local mechanic for chassis / engine work, and a RV repair facility nearby for repairs beyond my capabilities. Y-Guy provides good advice. . . keep up with things and enjoy it.

RE: HOW did you choose your Class A ? ....

We had purchased a 2002 Triple E Senator Class C motorhome from a rental agency in BC, Canada. It was a great MH, but we needed something a bit larger and perhaps with slides. The new search began. We searched many local MH dealers, and were looking for a 30+ foot diesel pusher with slides. We found a 35' 2008 Itasca Suncruiser that we love and we bought in 2011. Then salesman (a blues guitarist for the WHO) convinced us that a gas version was more appropriate for us. We entered the MH on a cold day with the heat on, classical music playing, and with mood lighting. We were sold! The MH had been used by his step-father on a trip to Yellowstone, where he had a heart attack, and never used the MH again. It had 6,400 miles on it and was 3 years old. They gave us a great price for our Triple E and we negotiated a great price. We have never looked back. Good luck with your search!

RE: overdash tv

Make sure that all of the mechanical attachments are secure. Mine needed to be tightened a bit to stop the rattling. I eventually wedged foam pool noodles behind the TV, which helped to better secure things.

RE: Request Prayers

Where in the South are you? You need to arrange for transportation back to the ER (Uber, Lyft, ambulance)? NOW! Have you called back to Urgent Care to update them?

RE: Using your motorhome to help fund a charity

Next time you have that problem, Ron, call me and I'll be happy to stop by and help reduce the weight of that wine! And I'm right here in wine country, too. I'm not sure that I can afford you. We've noticed that wine prices have certainly escalated. Wow?

Using your motorhome to help fund a charity

We have used our motorhome to help raise money for our local hospital's charitable Foundation. We had a local wine shop set up wine tastings at wineries in Eastern Washington for 2 couples. The tastings were complimentary. We provided transportation and lunches, and the hospital paid for each couple to stay at B&B's for 2 nights together with spectacular wine-maker's dinners. Fortunately, friends of ours purchased the trips at the annual auction, that raises nearly $300,000 each year. The first trip was auctioned off for $2,200, the second trip went for $2,600, and the third trip went for 2x$7,500. When the price had gotten so high, I had the auctioneer announce that we would do 2 trips for that price. The only problem was that the couples purchased many bottles of wine, and loading the motorhome was interesting. Note to self: Do not put too many cases of wine in very back, as the front wheels prefer to have more contact with the road.

RE: Radial Tire Valve Core Failures

I suspect that I have received low pressure cores? I'll verify that I now have the high pressure ones. Thanks everyone for your input. I hate drama when I am only checking tire pressure. There are many more things to be concerned about!

RE: Radial Tire Valve Core Failures

I’m thinking you are over the valve cores max pressure. And why 105? Have you weighed the MH? I’m certain you don’t need to run over 80 psi. I run 75 per Michelin’s pressure/weight chart. My rear axle I run at 95 per the chart. 105 is the recommended pressure. I bought a new compressor to achieve that.

Radial Tire Valve Core Failures

My front radial tires are Toyo 245/75R 22.5. When checking air pressure (105 pounds), I occasionally have the cores fail which allows air to escape dramatically, and I need to scramble to get the cap back on the valve stem on or replace the cores. This time I took it to Les Schwab Tires for them to check air pressures and to replace the valve cores. Both front tire valve cores had failed. This seems to happen about every 6 months. Does anyone else have this issue. They said that it is common with high pressure tires?

RE: Gas Oven

I've given up using the normal procedure. I turn on one of the gas stove-top burners to get the gas to flow to the stove, and then turn it off. I then try to ignite the oven, which often doesn't work. I have resorted to use a propane torch to warm the ignitor and actually lite the burner.

RE: Tips on asking friends for mootchdocking?

We encourage people to share our driveway, but we may get even sometime? Our last visitors are moving to Portugal. . . we're coming soon! We live on the beach with oysters, clams and mussels that we grow, and Dungeness crab that we catch. They must provide the wine.

RE: Almost lost the microwave while driving.

I'm glad that you were able to solve your problem. A bit of a different situation, but my wife and I talk about a front-end collision with the MH. We say: Lift up your feet, and duck, because the microwave is coming forward. Timing is everything.

RE: Toilet Tissue...

As I remember, a student did the ultimate TP evaluation for her junior high school science project, Soaking it in water, shaking, etc., and determined that Angel Soft performed the best. I'll try to find a reference to it on this Forum?

RE: New 5er, fresh water

Bob, I do not know your specific coach, but as a general statement, almost any pump will be able to deliver water to the potable tank from the city water connection. All that extra valve does is to by-pass the pump and (typical) check valve part of the system and go right to the tank. Matt Good to know Matt. Thanks for the tip. I’m seeing pumps around 35 PSI to 65 PSI that should work well for this process A bucket to draw water from is also needed.

RE: Article - Best Campground in Every State

We've camped at Lone Fir Campground on the North Cross State Highway in WA Sate. It's a great and quiet spot. . . once we were the only campers there. We came early in the year when Highway 20 had just opened for the season.

RE: Toto tires

I'm very happy with my Toyo tires that replaced my Michelin tires with potential sidewall issues. They probably give a bit rougher ride, but that's OK. The manager at Les Schwab Tires came around the counter and shook my hand when I bought them.

RE: I hate roundabouts -- but maybe I am wrong

I love roundabouts. I travel through 3 in 6 miles on my way into town. One of them with 2 lanes has 30,000 vehicles per day. I just wish that people would use their turn signals. . . it is suggested in WA State, but not required. Its is required in Germany and Austria. I never travel beside a large truck or trailer in multi-lane roundabouts. . . I like to give them room. My most adventurous roundabout was in the UK, with 3 lanes and the steering wheel was on the wrong side. . . yikes. A fender ahead wins.
