RE: Comparing 3 Class Bs

Bob Nestor wrote...Sigh, so here we go again with the pointless never-ending argument about what the RV Classes are and how salesmen, dealers and manufacturers are all "wrong" if they mis-identify their RVs as B's, C's, B+'s, C-'s, RUV's, Super-C's, etc because RVIA doesn't recognize those terms. Reminds me of the time I owned a Roadtrek 210 which was sold as a Class B and recognized by RVIA as a Class B. I pulled into a campground that didn't allow "van conversions" and the gal at the counter insisted my RV wasn't a Class B motorhome but was in fact a "van conversion". Didn't see anyone from RVIA show up and argue with her and her definition though, so I just left for another campground. RVIA Classes are nothing more than general guidelines which may or may not apply to any specific model of RV produced. I'm still trying to figure out what class my 24' Dynamax is in my signature. It is all one piece body and about 7' wide. Wider than a van but not as wide as a class C. I was told that Dynamax marketed it as a Class A, but who knows?

RE: TR: Utah, parks, friends and a few weeks with my wife

I'm guessing you live in WA...haha. Awesome vacation. We have been to several of the places you traveled and enjoyed them too. We agreed that Moab, Zion, and Jackson have gotten too crowded for us. We would have loved being at the Salt Flats during Speed week. You really lucked out on that! Thanks for the great pics!

RE: Reservations in California

About a month ago we made reservations for late April at CA state parks. One is at Refugio beach near Santa Barbara, and the other at Pismo Beach. They accepted my reservations and took my money. Haven't heard anything about them being cancelled, so far. Refugio Park had room for your 40' RV???? They told me if I could fit in a site and not block any part of the road then they were okay with it. Since we have been there several times before I knew which sites we could fit in and not be near the edge of the pavement.

RE: Anybody in Quartzsite?

Just drove through Quartzsite this afternoon. It's changed a lot since we were here a couple weeks ago. BLM land north and south of town probably has a combined total of 500 rigs. Things are picking up in town too.

RE: Anybody in Quartzsite?

We were there about a week ago and Plamosa Rd had a lot of rigs scattered around that area. Several vendors had open air displays open for customers but nothing like it will be during the RV show. We will be back during the show dates.

RE: Class A creature comforts at FHU stays

I would recommend a floor plan that has the TV across from the couch/recliners. Not one that has the TV at the top of the windshield where your neck would be cranked to the side.

RE: Roof type - leaks

Both of the motorhomes in my signature have metal roofs. Had rubber roofs in previous motorhomes and much prefer having metal roofs for ease of maintenance. The 1st thing I did when I purchased each one was to apply 4" wide Eternabond tape around the entire perimeter of the roof seams where the roof meets the sides and seams on the front and rear caps. I also apply Eternabond tape around all roof vents, skylights, antennae mounts, ladder, etc. Been using Eternabond on 8 different motorhomes for 20 years and never had a leak after applying this tape.

RE: Trans temp gauge reads '0'

Several years ago I had the same issue. The wire connector had come unplugged from the sensor on the transmission. I think it was on the rear of the Allison 3000, but was easy to reattach.

RE: Long trips

One reason we switched to a Class A from a 5th wheel was that no how nice the truck and 5th wheel, you're still riding in a truck. You can't do anything but ride. In the class A you can get to the refrig, bathroom, bedroom, closet, pantry and any where else you want. Plus the weather is irrelevant....if it's pouring rain you can still get what you want without getting out of the MH. Same with us. If it's hot, it's already cooled down before we get to our destination. Same with cold and heat. Sitting up high in a class A also makes for good views. Seeing what's way up ahead makes for a more relaxed driving also. JMO.

RE: CDC issues warning

Has anyone heard what the situation is in Algodones? It pretty much only exists as a border town for low cost dental and optometry for US and Canadians.

RE: Tail light issues

Had the same problem on a car a few months ago. It had a loose fitting socket. I pushed a couple of flat toothpicks in between the socket and bulb. It's a McGyver fix, but it's been working fine for 3 months now.

RE: Help figuring out DOT tire code

I found the date code on the inside of the tire. Didn't know they only stamped one side. I learn something new everyday. Thanks guys for the informative replies.

RE: Help figuring out DOT tire code

Thanks everyone. I'll look on the inside of the tire. BurbMan, they sure don't make it easy to read the numbers:(

RE: Help figuring out DOT tire code

Thanks Old Biscuit, but there are no numbers next to the DOT code, just letters.

Help figuring out DOT tire code

I was looking at the spare tire for my enclosed trailer and can't figure out the date of manufacture. The side wall code says DOT 1PP CXKRCF. How do I figure out those letters for mfg date? If it helps, it is 15" load range E. Thanks for any help in advance.

RE: Loose side mirror

The ones I've seen have a small Allen screw on the side or bottom of the arm to adjust and tighten the mirror.

RE: 12 volt receptacles shorting 12 volt accessory charge cords

I had exactly the same problem because I had wired them backwards..."reverse polarity". Switched the 2 wires around and they work perfectly.

RE: Easy way to tell what outlets are on my inverter?

Are you sure about your stove? I thought the ignitor would be 12 volt.

RE: Motorhome magazine good till Oct 21 refund??
