RE: Help in Purchasing Class A Motorhome

We have a 12 Georgetown. We bought it used last year. We have had no issues. And the previous owner had very minor warranty issue (we have all the paper work). My buddy has a 17 Fleetwood Bounder and it has had its share of issues. Mostly the way it's built (thrown together). I walked through a new Georgetown and wasn't impressed with the build quality in it either. Whatever you end up going with I think you will have some issues with it. That's just how these things are made.

RE: Are there good used DP's under $40,000?

Smart shopping and knowing what to look for will get you what you want! There out there. You just have to weed through all the junk!

RE: Concrete driveway thickness??

I belive my driveway that was poured 3 years ago is 4-5" thick and reinforced with wire mesh. The contractor that did it is a village resident that's been in buisness for 40 years with none of pathetic residents complaining of his work. My MH is only 19k lbs total distributed by the 4 (6) wheels. No issues with cracking. I would put hesitate to put another 10k in the same spot. Anything bigger wouldn't fit and I wouldn't be worrying about cracking.

RE: Disappointing test drive

My 12 was like that when I bought it last year. It was all over the road. Didn’t notice it on the test drive around the dealer. But bringing it home it was a miserable drive. I have to do constant corrections. The previous owner added all that was available for the F53 chassis. What I found was the tire pressure were all at 110psi. And then I found the front tires were toed out 5/8”. I did a tape measure adjustment and set it to 3/16” toe in. Now the MH drives like my previous Ford Excursikn and 35ft TT. Sometimes it’s the simple things that makes the biggest improvement.

RE: Heads up to anyone coming to NY

It's my understanding that masks and distancing are not going to cut itYour understanding goes against medical science, is in direct conflict with what other countries have done effectively, and has nothing to do with the subject of this post. Medical science has other agendas to worry about right now. Like telling states how to list Covid deaths. Basically anyone that dies has Covid! Can’t trust anyone anymore!

RE: Furrion A/Cs?

If it’s the same Company as the one that makes the TV’s I’ll pass! I’ll take the standard roof mounted AC’s.

RE: Campground recommendations for the FL panhandle

Camp Gulf in Destin FL! Not cheap but you can have a literal beach front site or just off the beach. These are tight sites, but if you like the sand and water it's perfect. We are staying around Biloxi MS in 2 weeks. Some nice places right across from the beaches there also.

RE: reese hitch question

Not sure. I only had the 800lb bars for a year along with the smaller trailer.

RE: Towing with a Ford Explorer

That’s perfect for the Explorer. But like I said I would have the PTU fluid changed, probably a couple times if it’s got 60k plus miles on it! Have fun!

RE: Resurgence of the Virus and Travel

San Diego County just closed bars, wineries, and breweries for the next month. We and friends had reservations in July at a beautiful RV park in Chula Vista. We cancelled those reservations, Cali doesn't need our money. There are no travel restrictions I've heard of. We're currently enroute from Tucson to Branson, MO for a week of celebrating the birth of our country. Branson is, so far, free of the idiocy enveloping our locations. Rant: The virus numbers are a crock of lies, anyway. The medical folks are making mucho dinero for every covid patient they can claim. In Arizona it's been proven that one person can be counted multiple times for every covid test administered to that one person thus inflating the count. People can die from other causes and be called a covid death thus further inflating the numbers. Glad I'm not the only one that can see through the BS! We are headed to Galveston in 2 weeks and then to Biloxi MS. We don't socialize. So just hang out at the camper. Go to the beach and then back and maybe in the pool.

RE: Leaving breakers in the camper on while away?

If you turn them all off, then why not just turn off the pedestal breaker? Personally mine are never turned off. Not even if I had it set up for permamnent (we did for a year with our previous trailer). They always stayed on. We did turn off the water and water heater.

RE: reese hitch question

I had the DC with my last 2 trailer. Swapped from the 800lb bars to the 1200lb bars. No problem. Just watch the hitch head. Mine had the older design head and the trunnions would contact the ball nut on hard turns. It would then force the bar down and bend the lower trunnions socket in the head. I called Reese and after I explained my displeasure they sent me a new updated head and I paid the shipping. You can tell the difference. The new design has a raised area where the ball mounts too. The DC is the best sway control hitch out there. The only thing better are the HA and Pro Pride. I never had an issue with sway with my Excursion and 35ft TT. BTW, welcome back!

RE: 15+ F150 - Breakaway Cable anchor?

When I had my conversion van. I installed a stainless eyebolt to the van chassis. This way it would still pull the pin in case of the near impossible hitch separation. Find a place on the rear frame and do the same.

RE: Opinion: 1991 Fleetwood Southwind 30'

80 miles isnt too far to drive. You won’t know till you get there if it’s a must have or junk! Sounds like the previous owner took care and replaced everything when needed. Look for Water leaks and rot. Don’t get your hopes up and be prepared to walk if you have to. I wouldn’t hesitate on it if it was in good shape and in the condition described!

RE: 2019 Dodge Durango with tow package? am I making a mistake?

The Durango will do fine with the family and a 25ft TT. No need to be scared off by everyone telling you to buy a 3/4 ton truck or only buying a PuP. The Durango has a long enough wheel Base for a 25ft TT. And with the Hemi it will tow it without issue.

RE: Preference for one night camping

Depends on the campground in question. IDE drive a few miles past the one off the highway if it were a better place.

RE: Campng in Red Lodge, MT for 40 footer

Yes Perry’s is nice. Plenty of room for a 40footer. And you can do a day trip on the Beartooth hwy.

RE: 2013 THOR MOTOR COACH CHALLENGER 37DT

Sounds a bit high for 13. The generator has a lot of hours on it. How are the tires. If it needs tires, that alone is at least $2500. Around $63k would be a good deal. That’s if it doesn’t need anything.

RE: Towing with a Ford Explorer

ugh. ok. sounds like we will be looking at lighter popups for right now and if we really want to do this - invest in a truck, I guess. Kind of a bummer. I agree. And I am far from a member of the weight police, but with the current gen Explorers they just aren’t up to the task of a tall trailer. You would be OK with a 3500lb loaded PuP.

RE: Towing with a Ford Explorer

I have a 2013 Explorer Limited with the factory tow PKG. I was towing 3 snowmobiles (around 2k lbs with the trailer). the engine will not stay in 5th gear, you`ll be lucky to keep it in 4th most of the time. I wouldn't tow anything more than a large PuP. I`ve seen people tow TT`s with them, I don't know how they do it. The 4th and 5th gen Explorers are nothing like the 1st and 2nd (and even the 3rd gen for that matter). they are car based. the early ones were more truck based. BTW, towing anything that heavy in the summer will require more service than normal. the PTU is one major one. they are not serviceable and only hold a 1/2 qt of gear lube. so it gets cooked pretty well being next to the catalytic converter, engine and transmission, towing will only make it worse. I just did the fluid on mine (drilled and tapped for an NPT drain plug. the fluid came out like thick mud! it took 5 drain and fills to get it looking normal. it will be done again at the next oil change. then once a year after that. the water pump is another issue on the 3.5`s.
