RE: 255 30m 22.5 tires

I think what you are looking for are 245/75R22.5 load range G. I'm currently buying Toyo Model M154 tires in that size, about $360 each out the door for 6.

RE: 245/70R 19.5 tires

I'm putting Toyo M154 245/75R22.5 to replace Micheline XRV tires. About $360 each out the door.

RE: Michelin or Bridgestone 245/ 70 19.5

My local dealer says he has found me 6 Toyo M154 245/75R22.5 I asked that he verify the DOT production date, and not install if they are over 9 months old. Dealer says the same as your post, that all the manufacturers have an order backlog. Hard to compete with hefty unemployment for wages... New tires should go on a week from today.

RE: Considering purchasing a 2012 Winnebago Sightseer 33C

For long term travel, and especially if grandchildren are coming, I'd recommend getting a washer/dryer stack. It will take up most of the pantry, but will add a big degree of habitability. Some things I've replaced in three years: video head for bluetooth capability, the bed support frame came apart, the spare bed frame needed new screws to reinforce it, look at the DOT stamp on the tires (ours are coming off this summer), the diamondshield film on the front failed and had to be replaced, we added new cabin lights over the front dash. All in all, the coach has been mechanically reliable and easy to drive. I'd buy mine again.

RE: 98. Suncruiser f53 Ford chassis doesn't start.

To amplify, that solenoid is an easy fix (two wires, two retention bolts). For safety, I'd check the physical connections (battery wires especially) and ensure no grounds to the starter. Rodents love to chew on wire insulation, bless their buggered souls.

RE: Rear View Camera

Unrelated question: When we first started RVing, we had a 1991 Explorer Sport which had a 4.0L V-6 and a 5-speed. That was a tough and dependable little brute. It could tow its own weight (3300 lbs) and was an easy toad for us. It died with over 307,000 miles on it. I'd like to hear your experience with the new Bronco Sport. Good luck with that! It seems to me you've bought into a first class rig. ATB, Jack

RE: Most Desired Accessories

Not mentioned so far: WiFi range extender, if you're traveling with grandchildren look into a washer/dryer, breaker bar with socket for emergency removal of tire, tools suitable for tightening things and quick repairs, consider a portable waste water tank. For us, the very first thing out the door was the lousy Denver mattress. We put in a 12" bed in a box, which helped a lot. I recommend that you provision your kitchen with new pots/pans/towels, flatware, cooking utensils and the like. I keep crystal stemware and bar glasses...a conceit, but I do not like to drink out of Styrofoam (it's hard on the flavor of good scotch, or bad scotch for that matter).

RE: Gas Vs Diesel Yah-Yah-Yah!

IMHO, the sweet spot is the optimal price, floor plan, and equipment. For both my current and former rig (first Class A), I have been the third owner. Bless all the former owners who worked out the kinks and took the major depreciation! Our current rig has 5-Star tuning, so the V-10 now cranks out 420 HP, which is in the DP range. The engine noise is not all that bad, if I ever cure the wind whistle everything would be fine and dandy.

RE: Engine idle surges up and down when stopping at lights

Two items that may be a reach: a) check to ensure your gas filler cap is sealing. b) my old 97 460 was hard on exhaust manifold, and warped two of them on the passenger side; both time the engine ran rough until the replacements went on. Those exhaust manifolds also spit out can bolts as the warp got worse, and could crack a head. Hope this helps,

RE: OBD-i and OBD-ii did a '96-'97 F53 ever have diagnostic plug

My 1997 Coachmen Catalina had an OBD-1 under the doghouse on the driver's side. PITA to get at it.

RE: 5 Star Tune

I bought the 5-Star for my rig, and the performance improvement has been pretty dramatic. The mileage has not changed, but the engine/tranny has given me what I paid for.

RE: Chassis clarification

Shorter rigs are problematic, as the manufacturers seem to view them as low-cost entry level motorhomes. You may be better served by a bigger used rig. After a couple of years,most of the depreciation has been taken, and the bugs mostly worked out. We have been the third owners of both our Class A rigs, and we have had pretty good luck with the integrity of the chassis and interior repairs the prior owners dealt with. JMHO.

RE: Stairs not working

We had Kwikee steps on our 97 Coachmen. They are notorious for being unreliable when their moving parts are not lubed. Try CRC with PFTE on the moving parts, and see whether that cures it. The next issue, mentioned above, is that the controller needs a REALLY good ground. Third, the gearbox can get water in it and the input quill will begin to grind down. Ours was ground to a nub when I finally replaced it. The integrated motor-gearbox is not hard to replace. HTH

RE: Kwikee Step Motor Replacement

We had a 12-yr-old Coachmen, and the step motor died. I replaced the motor with a Taurus power window motor, and the added torque finish stripping the gears in the gearbox. Replaced with a new integrated motor-gearbox and fixed the problem. BTW - the power input quill in the old gearbox was stripped smooth..

RE: Bedroom Slide Lubricating

I use CRC with PFTE, and I lube it often, especially after the slide has been out in rain. I buy it on Amazon for about $9 per can, which lasts about 18 months.

RE: LCI power steps won't shut off

I had this problem on my old 97 Catalina, and lubing the steps with CFC fixed it. Or it was a miracle, hard to say with Coachmen products.

RE: Windshield replacement

I chipped the windshield last month, and before I could get it repaired, it spread into a two-foot crack. Okay, Progressive referred me to Duncan Systems (Lippert) who is in charge of their glass program as third-party administrators. I sent photos today, and have been told it will be 4-6 weeks to get the repair guy here. **sigh**. Co-pay $180. Heck of a way to get a clean windshield!

RE: Dura Shield Flex film failure

We are more than pleased with the work CDI did for us. It was something of a forced drive from our son's house in Columbia, Missouri, but the outcome was worthwhile.

RE: Used RV Financing

USAA Federal Savings Bank got our loan done in four days, purchase complete in six days, which included us driving to The Villages to complete the deal. You just have to be qualified to use USAA...but it costs nothing to ask if you have a good FICO score. HTH
