RE: You're kidding...Right?

You do not have to take each wheel position weights. While that's nice to know it's not easy for many of us to get. Yes of course you can take averages from each axel and then refer to your inflation chart to get proper inflation.

RE: Does your slide interfere with any operation.....

Our opposing slides are deep but still leave an aisle to use the kitchen & get to the half bath. She makes trips to fridge for pop or snacks & sometimes uses microwave & we'll use the half bath but we don't "use" the kitchen with slides in. When the weather is nice we have parked & did picnics outside. Otherwise we wait until we have docked at a CG to enjoy a meal.

RE: Gasser guys and gals ...why not a diesel ?

Diesels cost more and cost more to maintain. Anyone that says different is spinning it. I do DIY and spend about $500 per year on supplies only. And not talking about tires or house batteries. Replaced starter batteries (2) this spring @ about $125 each, gas coaches have one battery. Fluids & filters (not including air filter) for ISL & 10K genny about $350 every year alone. Add def filters @ $50 each & air filter $150 each which I do every two years. Air dryer element $60 every 3 years. I've had to replace a air bag already. Many other ticky tack expenses also. Maybe I'm not the most careful shopper for my parts so others may do better sourcing. But a diesel simply costs more to maintain than a gas coach period. Also my ISL is not a large engine I had slightly higher costs with the C12 in my last coach. Many DP owners are not DIYers & spend one heck of a lot more than $500 per year. I'm just now replacing the OE house batts (8 230 ahc flooded). I don't need to muddy the conversation with that but many diesels come with larger battery banks than gas units.

RE: Air compressors

Sorry this isn't very helpful but why does it have to be "quickly"? Surely you never have to add more than a few lbs. right? I have a 150 psi cheapy portable from Lowes, I use 120 psi in steer & 90 in drive & tag. If I ever have to add it only takes a minute or two per tire. I would keep it as compact as possible to save basement space & just be a little more patient but that's just me. Is it possible your current unit isn't working properly?

RE: diesel additives

I've always stored with full fuel & never had any of my coach's sit for more than 4-5 months. Been golden for 20+ years! I also never used a biocide but I do now before I put away for winter. Routine service two years ago showed algae in my filter. What I would do is add a biocide now & use the shock dose. It's better to add while filling to help mix but you don't have that option. Also purchase a couple extra fuel filters to carry. If you find you had no algae that's fantastic. If you did you'll also want to continue adding another additive to clean up the dead algae. Below is the Cummins line up but there are others if you prefer. Cummins products

RE: Meter

Does a guy need a meter to check his exhaust temperature.And turbo boost. I notice my heat goes from 180 to 215 when I get on steep grade. Isx 600 215 is higher than I would want to see. I've climbed most passes out west and 205ish is as high as I've seen. But I'm heavy & underpowered so I downshift early & often. I have been in 3rd gear reaching the summit of some of the bad ones.

RE: Tire valve Stems

When I woke up my coach from a 4 month hibernation last month my driver side inner dual was about 35 lbs light. Tire tech struggled with finding anything & ultimately found the metal stem had a slight (very slight) leak. Leak was not where it screws into tire but stem was allowing a small amount of air out through the core & air was escaping past the TST cap. Didn't realize that could happen. Regardless he replaced the stem & we're golden. Anyway, new tires will likely run you several grand YES I would let them install new stems for $85. Nothing lasts forever.

RE: RV Magazine

I liked it. In the later years the Motorhome magazine became a pamphlet more than a magazine. This one seems more ample. Frankly I like the lifestyle format & I'll continue to get it.

RE: Class A creature comforts at FHU stays

OK, so now, what budget are we talking about? Probably something lightly used, 3-5 years old. 200K? 250? Higher? $200K to $250K would buy a very nice later model coach with all the high end options mentioned so far.
