RE: F-53 V-10 Oil Capacity

Old race car trick with custom oil pan. Add say 5 qts, check it, then add to the fill mark.....and remember how many it takes to fill it.

RE: Is it time to trip

Just this minute saw a thing on TV that RV parks in our area were mostly full with plenty more reservations from people wanting to get away from affected cities.....showed pics of 3 parks packed. Not sure exactly where they were but we are in central NC. The Outer Banks is closed to anyone that don't live there.....

RE: How are others facing issues with the Coronavirus?

Sorry I upset some of you. I guess my outlook is different than most having worked in countries where people drank water out of the same river their sewage drained into and worse. Decided not to leave NC for the time being but undecided on staying out here in the country or go to city house. Here we won't be exposed but are far from health care if we need it.....79 years old and I refuse to live in fear!!!!!!

RE: How are others facing issues with the Coronavirus?

We rolled back in here from a race in VA on Sunday where there were over 1000 people or more, 500+ racers. We have a trip Planned to WV and so far its virus free so we may get to go. We are out here in the country well provisioned so we aren't concerned.

RE: LOUD Transmission drone at 58-62MPH

That thing may whine forever---my last DP whined in the rear end for 80,000 mi while I had it. Now if it starts to chatter it won't be that much longer till it breaks.

RE: Staunton Va to Elkins WV

The observation made above about touching your own rear end on some of the turns is only 1/2 of it, its so steep you can see the TOP of your RV going up hill....I just thought someone might have found a better way after all these years. Trust me Bill when I started RVing I was in a covered wagon on mud roads. LOL. I'll be 79 in a couple of weeks and we are planning on heading out west in the fall. Going to Petersburg VA Thursday and went to West Palm Beach for Christmas......Going to Elkins area to ride Cass Railroad.

RE: Staunton Va to Elkins WV

Thanks. I came across 250 when my daughter was going to Sweet Briar and have also been on 33 so I guess 250 is it.....You got to cross the mountains.

Staunton Va to Elkins WV

Any suggestions? DP with a Toad. Looks like every road is 2 lane and crooked as a snake.

RE: Roadside assist

I thought when I paid $550 for one tire it was a lot....You sure you only paid for 1 tire???

RE: Thanks Doug Rainer

Yes! He has helped me a few times and he is not selfish with his info and it always seems to be spot on....Must have worked on these things a long time

RE: Problems locating repair shops for Motorhomes.

No one mentioned here is close to MD but there is an independent garage in Odenton MD that works on ANYTHING RV. I got sent there a couple of years ago and it is a great big place doing all kinds of things from mechanical on DPs to putting in laminate floors----they treated me real good and were priced fair I thought.

RE: 1999 Monaco Windsor oil pressure gauge

On my Monaco I had a shop install a new gauge in the dash, sending unit on the motor, and run a new wire from the back to the front. Cured that problem just fine.....Since you are in MD I can recommend a good shop in Odenton if you PM me.

RE: Roadside assist

I'll spend the money. I have used it over the years 3 times, once locked out on a Sunday and they were there in 30 min, once had a blow out on inside dual also on a Sunday and they brought a tire and fixed it in about a hour (I paid for the tire), and once I had to be towed maybe 15mi and they were extremely careful with my rig....Never paid anything other than the tire. Worth every penny.

RE: Price to expect if a RV dealer buys my coach

I sold my old one in about a week on Craigs list for what I asked. But I didn't ask what it cost new, I priced it to sell and it did. I have had 5 so far and never bought one from a dealer.....You are in the Baltimore, DC, Annapolis area where lots of people live with money!!!!!

RE: Advice on Campgrounds

River Bend in Pigeon Forge. I have used a couple of the others in the area and liked this one the best.....Gatlinburg is to crowded for me....We drove to Ashville and stayed at the Grove Park Inn. Lots to do and see in both areas.

RE: Class A, gas or diesel

I agree on the cost of maintenence isn't as high as some maintain. Mine gets done once a year and is between $2-300 including filters, grease,andd everything else. But had a new radiator put in my old DP and the part from Freightliner was $1500 + installation. Fuel, if you want to ride you have to buy it and forget the cost my current DP got 9.25mpg on a 1400 mi trip to FL towing around 5000lb of trailer.......Good luck but years ago I had 2 gassers and don't know what I was thinking.

RE: Class a toy haulers that can fit a smart car

If a golf cart will fit so will a smart car. I never had a toy hauler but have hauled my smart in my enclosed in front of the race car as well as sideways in front of the race car on the Featherlite open trailer......The Smart is a pretty handy little car.

RE: HOV Lanes in Atlanta GA

Don't know about Atlanta but I have used the ones South of DC several times towing. I think those have now been changed so if you have an EZ pass you are good.
