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.

RE: Inverter

You are correct Doug. I should have suggested the test first instead of replace.

RE: Inverter

First thing I’d do is replace the communication cable from control board to inverter.

RE: Stability Issues

Over the years I've had 7 different Class A's. As a general rule longer and heavier is going to be more stable. Gas models...35ft and over have been very stable...Diesel models 38ft and over have been very stable. I've owned 32ft gas model that was a bear with side winds and truck traffic passing in the wind. Had a 35ft diesel that was bad. Drove a 40ft Bluebird Wanderlodge for awhile. It was heavy and had a tag axle. It was a dream to drive.

RE: Engine blew white smoke died then generator

If your fuel tank is low and you’re on an uneven surface it’s possible you have sucked air from fuel tank or bad fuel (water or other contaminants) from the bottom of the tank. It’s possible your gauge is off a bit. On my diesel motor home my gauge will show a quarter tank one minute and the “E” shortly after. See if you can get some fuel delivered and try bleeding the system. If that don’t work you’ll have to have it towed in.

RE: Rexhall aerbus vs Fleetwood pace arrow

If they are in similar condition, choose the Rexhall. I am currently driving a HR Endeavor diesel. It is basically a cheaper version of a Monaco Diplomat.

RE: 1992 HMC with 12V Cummins

I had a 1995 Safari with the 12 valve 5.9 rated at 230hp. Some of the earlier ones were rated at 210hp. Good engines, pulled very well for their rating. Sorry, can't help with more info.

RE: New again, remind me

The biggest issues with Cat engines comes from Cummins lovers....I am one! Meaning I love Cummins and currently am running a 3126B Cat. I am pleasantly surprised at the performance of the Cat, and all in all I would not consider it a game changer in decision making. Used motorhomes Late 90's-2005 era....Look at Foretravel, Country Coach or Monaco. I prefer and over the years have mostly run Monaco Signature and Executive. Am currently driving a Holiday Rambler Endeavor. Much cheaper build then the Signature and Executive but a lot less complicated and has been basically trouble free.

RE: Sharp Microwave Oven Door

Easy fix and a heck of a lot cheaper then buying a new one. I replaced mine some yrs back, don't remember the exact procedure, but I do remember I did NOT have to remove the microwave, and it was not difficult. My foggy mind seems to recall that you remove the facial plate around the door and you will get access to the bolts/screws to remove the door. You should be able to google for parts, and you tube may even have a video on the repair. ON EDIT: My memory has recollected that when the facial is removed you will see the door latch workings. The door does not have to be removed. Its a cheap plastic latch that breaks. I tried glueing it and it didn't last long, so I just replaced it. Like I stated earlier, the parts are cheap, the fix easy.

RE: Need recommendation for a replacement inverter

Been RVing for 30 plus Yrs. Boondock 2-3 months a yr. have had 4 different motor homes with Xantrex inverters and have never had a problem with them. There is a guy in Metro Phoenix area that sells refurbished xantrex. Guarantee them and reasonable price. Should pop up with a google search.

RE: Surge Guard - Need Vs. Cost

A lot of motorhomes, especially the top end models, already have surge guards built into their transfer switches. My Monaco's had built in surge guards.

RE: What the heck? I thought motorhomes lost value fast!!

A 50+ year old farm tractor like mine sold recently near here for a little over THREE times what my grandfather paid for mine when it was new. Depreciation is a non-existent thing today. That's a little different situation. Depreciation eventually bottoms out and then the underlying condition and value of the item takes priority. Depreciation probably maxed out on your tractor at around 15-20yrs. After that inflation started pulling it back up relative to the non-inflation adjusted original price. Of course a good tractor can be completely functional at 50yrs, so it retains a good underlying value. Your average run of the mill 1970 RV in typical condition has a underlying value of a few dollars based on the scrap metal. But to the OP's original post, once you update that to actual sales prices, 5yrs is likely resulting in 30-50% reduction in prices. Pretty typical depreciation. CASE IN POINT....this weekend the Decades channel was showing the rerun of the TV series "Route 66". Buz and Todd drive a 1962 Corvette Stingray that sold for a little over $4000.00 brand new. Worth a bit more today!!!!

RE: What constitutes a "new" tire?

They are new! Where is Toyo manufactured? If it's still Japan, how would you expect to find tires that are a month old? I have not looked into Toyo in many years so if they are now US built (not just distributed) I apologize! Big TOYO tire plant about 20 miles north of Atlanta. Don't know just what tire sizes are made there but its a big plant. Tires date stamped 6-9 months old are fine.
