RE: DP lengths and Tag Axles

There are plenty of 41 foot motorhomes aroumd that don't have a tag, larger are generally tags. Buses don't generally have a lot of weight other than people and if they are locally used there isn't much need to have a tag so I could imagine there are some pretty long single axle buses out ther.e

RE: "Balancing" motorhome heating systems.

In the past, I've owned 2 different class A's with 2 furnaces. One heated the bedroom and rear bath, the other heated the living area. 2 furnaces is a great design for me because I would only run the one up front when we were sleeping keeping the bedroom nice and cool when we slept. If your single furnace cycles on the high limit maybe you could find a way to run an additional duct up front allowing it to cycle properly and maybe allowing you to damper the bedroom down a bit.

RE: Venting basement storage

Most of the heat in the basement is from heat from the engine and exhaust on a front engine coach. You would need to dump a lot of a/c down there to get any benifit of cooling. Any air that leaves the inside and is dumped below will be replaced from ooutside through leakage around slides, vents and windows. It would make more sence to just put the drinks in a cooler with a 2 dollar bag of ice.

RE: Windshield Shades

Any window screen on the outside will really help to cut down the heat in the front of the coach. Magna Shade has the best design but is very expensive as compaired to others. I use the Magna Shade because I refuse to put fasteners around the wind sheild. With the shade on my coach it is about 10 degrees cooler in the hot Florida sun.

RE: Side windows are fogged up

Single pane is an option if you never want to deal with window fogging again. All the cars and trucks we drive have single glass and don't seem to be an issue. ALL double glass will eventually fail. Just takes longer on some applications than it does on others.

RE: Truck bed liner on roof

Why would someone want to put bed liner on their roof? Its black so it would absorbe a lot of heat and it isn't made as a water proofing. If someone spent a lot of time on the roof, it would be pretty slip resistant but there are a lot of better products to coat a roof with.

RE: Slide moving out

A good RV technician can repair your problem or a hydraulic repair shop. Not many truck shops would want to tackle slide issues

RE: Jeep towed discharged when towing. This is new.

You say you towed this jeep for a few years with no problem, maybe your battery is failing. If a cell is shorted, it will run a your battery down. Most auto parts stores will load test it for no charge.I once had a battery that that would start my coach and I could drive all day until I turned the coach off. After a while the battery would cool down and start the coach again. The charge circuit was heating the plates and causing one to seperate but only while driving.

RE: Window shades?

Day/night roller shades work the best. Easy to clean, not noisy when you travel and actually help quite the inside when the noght shades are down. The can be purchased almost anywhere window coverings are sold and are not very expensive.

RE: Where is everyone getting their wiper blades?

You need 32's not 33's. 32's are a popular size for motorhomes. I get mine from Amazon and 55 dollars sounds about right. Like others said, shorter blades are cheaper.

RE: Alternative satellite option?

I use a roof mounted dish and carry a Tailgater but useally don't need the portable. I also habe a Verizon MiFi for streaming when in the southeast but it isn't much good in the North Central part of the U.S. Couldn't get a signal for streaming in Nebraska and the d Dakotas

RE: Back lights wire

Why not just pick up 12 volts from the ignition switch or just run a fused hot wire from the battery? might be easier.

RE: new satellite hook up?

I have used (2) 211k receivers for many years in the coach. I have a RF Mogal dish on the roof but cary a Tailgater for those times when I am under trees. You don't need a Wally to get satilite in the RV. I move the 211's back into the house when we are home and to the coach when we travel.

RE: Holiday Rambler Fuse location

I had a 15" Ambassidor and my power seats were fused from the panel you mentioned, front left basement door. I had the same issue, fuses were not labled. As a matter of fact, nothing was labled very well.

RE: Plastic sheeting under shower?

One of the first stages when building a coach is to put the floor down and then cover it with thin plastic sheeting to protect it during the rest of construction. What you are seeing maybe some of that plastic that wasn't removed pre delivery?

RE: Winnebago vs Tiffin

Winnebago has givin me greate tech support and the quality of their coaches goes without exception. Fit and finish is almost perfect. I looked at Newmar, Tiffin and Winnebago, all for their build quality and although I would have been happy with any one of them, I absolutely do not regret my choise.

RE: roof air

How ofter do you clean the filters. They should be cleaned every month when in use. The dirt thay gets past them will make the evaporator coil smell pretty bad after a short time.

RE: Water Heater

When I had a LP water heater I always had the electric element on. I now have Aqua Heat and only occasionally turn on the electric element.

RE: A/C Issue

A weak run capacitor could cause the amps to go up and open the thermal switch (klixon) when it cools and resets the compressor would start again. Just a thought.

RE: Newmar Dutch Aire 4304

Can't say it that price is fair without alot more info but as for parts, there should be no issue with getting replacement parts. Nothing on those coaches was proprietary other than the monogram.
