RE: New Jayco Alante, Winnebago Intent, or Coachmen Pursuit?

I can't speak for ride quality but Winnebago has the best warranty and their customer service is the best I ever experienced bar none.

RE: New to RVing, GVWR and multiple State DL

In Florida I can drive a 45' Prevost RV with my standard FL driver's license BUT I have to have a motorcycle endorsement to drive a little 100cc motorcycle. Kinda weird but that is the way it is. :B Yeah, but people driving RV's are usually driving a whole lot safer than some of those on a motorcycle!

RE: Shark bites for plumbing

There is a reason that the industry uses Pex tube with a Pex clamp. If you have a choice buy the Pex tool and clamps. Way more secure.

RE: Anyone traveling yet

Just returned from Perdido Key, on the gulf. Pretty full resort and a lot of RV's on the road. Didn't see anyone hugging, kissing or even hanging in groups of 10 or more but sure was a lot fun for everyone there.

RE: What is MISSING from your RV Park?

A level site is pretty high on my list.

RE: Awnings

If you have a Carefree Lattitude, they are adjustable. you can pitch one end so water won't puddle on it. Just go to the Carefree web site and download the installation instructions. The factory probably didn't take the time to properly adjust it.

RE: Mechanic and RV fan

You're a welcome breed. There aren't many Freightliner mechanics that love RV's. At least not working on them.

RE: Question about inverter transfer switch

Whenever my generator starts while I'm on battery power my satilite receiver reboots and I have to wait to get the signal back. Aggrvating because everything else seems to switch without a blink.

RE: Replace my aquahot 375 help

There is a Forum called RV Hydronics that may point you in the correct direction, It is run by Roger Berke who is actually a repair tecnician.

RE: 6.7 cummins HP

My last coach had the 6.7 (340) behind a Allison 2500. The coach was 39' and I towed 4,700 lbs. Crossed the country a couple of times with no issues and plenty of power. I think the ISB is a fine motor and would have no issue with owning another.

RE: Kirkland motor oil

Nothing agenst Kirkland but personally I like my motors way too much to use off brand oils. I have tried other rebranded oils in my work trucks in the past and soon realized there is far better places to save a buck or two.

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
