RE: 2009 Tiffin Phaeton Engine Rebuild

I’ll put more in here later as my friend owns a shop that does this work all the time. But for now another friend 2 years ago cut a hole in his oil pan and ran it till it locked up. 1000+miles from home. Towing, reman engine, etc was $32,000. I’ll see what my friend here is charging these days tomorrow. Hope this helps.

RE: Reasonably decent towed vehicles for a Class A

As I said before, do what suits you. I have dollied and trailered all over the country and have never unhooked the trailer or dolly. But I also never rely on state, or federal parks. There may be some restrictions but I have never encountered them

RE: Dump stations

For the first time in a long time I had to come home with part full tanks because it was pouring rain this weekend. Its 40-50 mi from here to the nearest place to dump. At our house in town we had a connection into the city sewer and could dump at home. But from out here in the country it takes a long ride. Lots of pilots have dump stations and you have a place right there in Millersville that will let you dump for a fee that I have used before. Good luck

RE: Delete

Hard to fathom someone getting under a bus without any type of solid support. Pretty careless. Any way since you trust it, won't the jacks hold it up? I have had 3 Monacos and have seen the tire people change tires using the coach jacks. Or just pay a professional to change it. Good luck

RE: Reasonably decent towed vehicles for a Class A

I tow a Smart car. I have one set up with the Roadmaster deal so it can be flat towed and one that is not. I thought the Roadmaster deal was the way to go after reading about it forever but have only used it a couple of times as it takes to long to hook up and the first time I used it the "death wobble" got me. So, I use a dolly which allows me to tow any of our cars that are front wheel drive and takes no time to hook up. I also have a Featherlite car trailer if I want to take something else. I am also 82+ years old. Get what suits YOU and get on out here.

RE: I-77 WV

Its all good. I-95 in lower SC is awful but I still think I-10 in LA is the worst in the country. WV does pretty good considering the weather and terrain they have to deal with. Lots to see up there. I went up 19 from 77 to 79 a couple of years ago and didn't see anything wrong with 19. I have also made a few trips to SC in the last few years. Got to keep moving, getting old.

RE: I-77 WV

but I-77 won't take you near where US-19 takes you, never mind tolls. People in glass houses shouldn't throw rocks, you been on I-95 in SC lately??? LOL

RE: Saying Good-bye/Scrapping a TT

That’s what I would do. Someone will buy anything if the price is right

RE: What to do when you are not camping for awhile

I use mine off and on year round. All of my water sources are in the same compartment in the basement and it is heated. I close the bedroom door, open all doors under sinks & leave commode lid open and heat on 55. Close all curtains. This has worked for me in MD, WV, and here in NC. I head South as often as I can also.

RE: I-77 WV

If you would have got off at Beckley, RT 19, you would have only paid 1 toll in and one out. Glad you had a good trip

RE: thinking of buying a Motorhome....looking for tips/hints

As someone said above buy a high end unit. My 20 year old Monaco still has better construction and features than new entry level models. When I bought mine I could have gotten a DP for 1/2 what I paid for the Monaco and would have got what I paid for. It only costs a little more to go first class.

RE: Chaffed & leaking fuel lines in your motor coach? beware!

Must not have liked my response to this, oh well.

RE: Towing a toad

I have towed our 2wd Honda CRV, Toyota Camry, Smart car, and Honda Civic all on the same dolly. Anything else I have a Featherlite trailer. To me that mess I have on the Smart is just to cumbersome and takes to long + its only good for one car. But to each his own.
ferndaleflyer 09/04/23 08:11am Dinghy Towing

My 1998 Monaco has original air bags. Had a leak once that turned out to be the connection to hook up an air hose to air up tires etc. I have one of those in the front and in the back. Held pressure ever since.

RE: Looking for a refrigerator.

I have the same Monaco 1 year newer. I have never had much of a problem with the original frig but Mama wanted more room so I got one of those Haier units and put it beside the table. On the coil location you mention, your furnace is under the refrigerator which might affect coil location in the Monaco

RE: Are all super C's 4 wheel drive?

JAX I am at the track and this thing next to me is a "super C home" and has 8 wheels in the back. + probably over 40ft long. Don't matter but it is NOT a truck conversion as in the original discription of a class C

RE: Towing a toad

I used a dolly for years then in 2014 had our Smart car equipped with a Blue Ox towing system---the whole nine yards done at a dealer. After 2, thats right 2, trips with the tow bar set up I went back to the dolly. The Smart is still set up and the rest of it is in the garage. Was just to much of a PIA for this 82+ person to hook up and unhook. I can do the dolly in 10min. But that is my choice, may not work for others.

RE: Are all super C's 4 wheel drive?

I been at this over 50 years and all over the country and never saw a 4X4 super C......I go to the races about every week and the pits are full of super Cs (they call them Toter Homes)but never saw a 4X4.
