RE: The horrible roads are killing the fun.

We just completed a trip from Atlanta to the Dakotas and back. All in all I didn’t think the roads were all that bad. There are some sections that are in need of repair but overall 90+% were pretty good. (We drive a Monaco Executive with a road master 10bag chassis). However, in this day and age one would think we could be doing a better job with our interstate roads. Last time we were down in Mexico, they were in the process of rebuilding their hwy 15. They were laying a very thick slab of concrete with a machine that was similar to an asphalt machine. The end product was basically seamless and very smooth. It will be interesting to see how this Hwy endures.

Hi pbutler, would a Cummins mechanic go to an Rv dealer to read the code and quote or a pre purchase inspection ? Yes they will. I had this done when I purchased a RV some Yrs ago. The RV had very low miles for its age so I requested that the engine be checked/diagnosed by a Cummins computer. He was able to tell us the engine was like new and had no issues. The dealer paid for it.

RE: Where is the ice maker water shut off valve?

I have an older HR Endeavor, my ice maker shut off is in the compartment by the hot water heater.

RE: Deisel handling

A diesel doesn't handle any better or worse. The difference is diesels typically come in pusher chassis (think commercial tour busses) and gas engines typically come in lighter duty front engine chassis. It just happens that expensive models come with both diesel and better chassis. Yes you could yank the diesel out of a Spartan diesel chassis, put in a gas engine and it would handle and ride relatively equal to the Diesel engine. However, come on man, do you really think this is the information the man is looking for?

RE: Deisel handling

In general a diesel will ride and handle better then a gas. Usually a 38ft or larger should require no add ons. Heavier RVs with tag axles will be the best. I’ve owned and driven a lot of them over the Yrs. Mind you I haven’t driven them all but my favorite is the road master 10 bag chassis. Spartan is also very good but is a little mushier then the road master.

RE: Diesel fuel prices … how is that affecting your RV travel ?

One good option is the old Merle Haggard song...."I think I'll just stay here and drink".

RE: Fuse location on engine a/c compressor

I have a son in the business. The new AC machines can evacuate and recharge a system without the compressor running. They record what they evacuate and the difference between that and the recharge would tell you how low the system was. Full recharge info is usually printed near the ports. However, to verify all this you need high and low pressure readings which require a running compressor. It seems odd that a company would do all this though in a system that has a compressor that doesn’t work.

RE: Tow vehicle

I run a 2000 Rexhall Aerbus with a V-10 for a while. I towed a Chevy Suburban from Atlanta, GA to Bozeman, MT and back without any issues. Over the yrs I also have owned gas RV's with the Ford 460 and some with the Chevy 454. The V-10 was superior in all ways.

RE: Stranded in Marietta, GA

Make sure air dryer is good. Sometimes the filter in the dryer will disintegrate and mess up the dryer. Sometimes it can be cleaned up , and sometimes it needs to be replaced. If you need a new air compressor I’d locate a new one and have a mobile mechanic replace.

RE: Class A repaint cost any ideas

My next question does anyone know this model of class a this is I know it’s on a freightliner chassis thanks I have bought some RV's from copart with salvage titles.....fixed them up, used them for a while and then resold them. There are a lot of fees, and additional hoops to jump thru, to get a copart RV licensed and saleable, and likely varies by state. I live in Georgia. I had to document repairs, get estimates from 2 RV dealers as to what the value of the RV was worth, get it inspected, pay sales tax twice, because I am not a licensed reseller. Some times the fees were more then the cost of the RV, but most of the time I ended up turning a nice profit and enjoyed the use of a RV until it sold. Never had a buyer ever complain about any of my Rv's, and I always made sure they knew they were buying a "salvage title" vehicle.
