RE: Changing a tire yourself

It's certainly possible but when you have your house and all its amenities with you, what's the rush? We prefer to let them come out and handle it but carry equipment because they're often not adequately prepared. We've also become more proactive with replacing tires on time, and driving with their capabilities in mind.

RE: Custom rims for my Class C

We sprayed the rim with the bright silver paint and it's surprisingly satisfying.

RE: Best place in Wichita Kansas Area for E450 alignment has been a good resource. We had a similar issue in Chicago (if you can believe that) - ended up as a highly-recommended truck alignment shop and they did a great job. Want to drive over?

RE: Question about tires..smell? Temp?

Our 31' has a lot of extra weight on that rear axle regularly so we go overweight regularly so we need to keep them at the max 80 psi. Never noticed a smell but we watch the speed on hot pavement, sometimes even deliberately choosing to drive early/ late.

RE: simple laptop solution for RV travel

Agreed with above. If your budget is more than $400 I would look at a tablet or iPad for convenience based on the usage you described.

RE: Flying J frustrations - Alternatives?

Plenty of regional chains are nipping at these guys heels because they've been complacent for so long. Sheetz in Ohio, kwik trip in Wisconsin, Kum n Go in Colorado, others in Oregon, Missouri will be taking over this segment before you know it. It's part of why love's is building/ adding campgrounds and hotels to their portfolio of products

RE: What Is This?

Agree with above. Ours has two latches you can turn with a coin in the top left and right corners and then the top half of the panel holds down on a hinge to reveal the fuses etc

RE: Work-anywhere towing assistance?

I haven't run across it, and would likely leave the equipment in the vicinity and focus on the humans. I'll call to the police or the local tow yard and the equipment can be secured reasonably well until someone moves it. That someone may be a paid service, but my priority will be on the humans.

RE: F550 based Super C - anyone but THOR.

Do you have a target budget? Seems too me that super C rise quicker than the others, but I agree so does quality.

RE: Parking at Niagara Falls Canada

Increased traffic has turned a lot of those areas into passenger car spots. It's good that you're taking a pickup. Oh, and my info is about 5 years old already too.

RE: Anyone Completely Redo Their Interior?

Solid advice from the previous poster, and I agree on the assessment. You do this for yourself and it's a labor of love not ROI. If you don't want it bad enough, then don't waste your time and just get something else instead - money is a lot easier to replace than time is.

RE: We've had 8 years and 68,000 trouble free miles...

Captain, your story was so nice when I first read it, that I marked it to come back and see what others had written. I agree that in a forum likes this it's refreshing to see positive tales. In that vein, I submit a "remix" of your words for our tale. Just over five years ago we bought our 2002 31' motorhome. We found it on craigslist with about 50k miles. I had looked at so many units in poor condition that we had decided to wait a couple years and buy new when we saved up the money. This unit was owned by an engineer who meticulously maintained the engine and exterior, and a teacher who kept her boys in line so the interior was equally clean. We left a deposit electronically that Saturday (because I had refused to take a check after so many negative experiences). By Tuesday afternoon we owned Da Moose. Over the years we've gone coast to coast {from Denali to the Smokies and just about everywhere in-between} for a total of 32 states visited. Those 55,000 miles have been trouble free, never a breakdown {if you don't count a blown tire}. What has always worked for us is the coach providing comfort and safety in virtually any environment. Add to that the convenience of a Class C that we've taken everywhere, from the French Quarter in New Orleans and downtown Chicago to Beartooth Pass, Death Valley, and Fairbanks. It lacks nothing we need and provides a base for everything that we do. Have I had to fix/repair stuff, of course I have as "Stuff happens" but they have been few and far between. Bottom line... it's good to hear positive stories from owners out there, and we're so grateful to share from our own positive RV experiences. Thanks for sharing, and reading this version.

RE: Enhancing RV security

Catalytic converters seem to be a hot commodity these days, you may want to secure it first. There are also products to change the locks on external compartments because the keys are so common, and some people secure their generator if that compartment is not locked. As for the interior, the best security is to park it around other people and leave the shades up so everyone can see inside when you're not there. From there you could add the various security items you mentioned, and I think your approach is correct if your unit is worth it. Half a dozen small cameras should easily cover the interior and exterior, and an app will give you live notifications as well as full-time recording. This will be easy if you're plugged into shore power and have constant Wi-Fi, but could likely be possible otherwise as well. Let us know what options you go with so that we can also benefit from your research. Thanks for the topic.

RE: Just beginning to do homework

Google maps said 67 hours from Chicago and 2 weeks felt rushed for us. Maybe you can park this year in Boise or Seattle fully loaded and winterized- or a friend somewhere can check it every so often for you. Then do that much closer to being there next year. We parked ours in Albuquerque over Thanksgiving picked it up the next summer one year for 2 months in the southwest. Another option is to just park it at Anchorage because fall flights are cheaper and I've met a family that's done that annually and just fly up to go salmon fishing for week.

RE: As a Fulltimer, Where Can I Work on My RV?

Depending on the extent of your work, you may need to take a long term hotel option like microtel for a month or a week. Then you could just work in their lot. Ditto with a cheap airbnb in a suburban area. For dry work that takes most of a day, and lot would work like truck stop, closed restaurant, our next to auto parts/ home improvement store. Have you looked at as another option.
