RE: when to use "econo mode" on Allison 5 speed tranny?

It is supposed to hold the gear longer to prevent constant hunting between 5th and 6th gear when highway driving on rolling hills and flat roads. Doesn't do anything for city or mountain driving. More or less holds the gear a little longer so it doesn't shift as often between the higher gears. I don't use it because it seems not to make a difference on my coach and it doesn't change my mileage

RE: What is typical width of class A with side slides both open?

My coach is 8'6" wide and I have opposing slides that are 30" deep so like Rich said, at least 15' to give you a little room on the outside but if you have the option for more, you'll be much happier.

RE: Blown engine

If you like your coach, I say go ahead and fix it. We are always upside down on the value of our toys but 10 or 20 thousand dollars is not a lot of expense compared to the joy an RV can provide

RE: Fortunate to be here tonight

I usually experience much the same whenever I travel through Atlanta.

RE: Freightliner chassis

I have owned 3 class A's on Freightliner chassis and never had issue but if I ever do I'll take comfort in their huge network of service dealers throughout the US.

RE: Oil change question

No need to change it with so few miles.

RE: Noisey seat coushions

Shy of replacement furniture, probably not much you can do.

RE: Rooftop Air Conditioner Issues

The compressor is not fused separate of the fan so you didn't blow a fuse. Did you replace a run capacitor or the start capacitor? You didn't say. Capacitors do often fail but they are not the only reason a compressor doesn't work. could be a bad thermal disk, wire connection, relay or even low on refrigerant. Did your servicer check these things?

RE: class a diesel maintenance

None of the regular service items are accessed from inside and if your mechanic did need access from inside and got fingerprints on anything, it would be time to find a different mechanic. As for engine or diesel odors, that pretty much isn't an issue.

RE: Windshield replacement

If Go Glass has not located a replacement windshield in 30 days, it might be time to find a different glass company.

RE: Forty Foot Gasser

I once owned a 2009 37' class A with the V-10, loved that coach and a friend still owns it. Had plenty of power and had the smoothest running engine I ever owned. The only issue I ever had was the range with the smallish fuel tank. If it had a 150 gallon tank, I might still own it and I think the V-10 is well suited for a 40 footer just don't expect more than 350 miles between fuel stops.

RE: Atlanta.... any issues

Can't blame anyone for wanting to avoid Atlanta. Seldom can I get through there with any less than a 1.5 hour delay. Seems they do most of their road construction during rush hour.

RE: AC upgrade / Need owners manual

Going from 13,500 to 15,000 is only a 9% increase in cooling so don't expect much.

RE: Diesel particulate filter

My son had one replaced at Cummins in Jacksonville, Fl, under warranty. If I recall correctly, they said it was a $2,600.00 replacement if it wasn't covered.

RE: Wheelbase ratio

The longer the wheel base, the better the ride, Weight and a tag will also make a ride improvement.

RE: Itasca Ellipse 42QD

Your Eclipse 42QD only has 6 wheels in the rear. Your tag is only 2 wheels. Look again.

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.
