RE: Best place in Wichita Kansas Area for E450 alignment

If you don't mind driving to KC MO, go too Midway Ford. They work on big trucks and have been taking my Class C motorhomes there for years, they do great work never had a complaint with them, reasonable prices. They are located right by Worlds of Fun.

RE: Towing 6,500 pounds with a class C

I have the new Thor Omni XG32 Super C on the F550 chassis with the 6.7L Diesel and tow a 24ft trailer with 2 side by sides through the mountains of western Wyoming and Montana and have no issues with the 3k mile round trip and has more than enough power for the mountains, going up the steep grades it rarely down shifts and the engine braking is awesome coming down. Backing the trailer is not a problem either, the rear mounted camera comes in handy for backing.

RE: Opinions on diesel vs. gasoline

Had several class C with the V10 engine, the engines never gave us any problems, But, they were noisy, lacked power going up hills, no room between the seats because of the dog house, put a lot of extra heat in the cab, always down shifting. Now we have a Super C, a Thor Omni XG32 on the Ford F550 cab and chassis with 6.7L diesel, It drives and handles so much better than the van chassis, it's much quieter, plenty of room between the seats, no heat in the cab from the engine, rarely down shifts and goes up and down hill's or mountains with ease. Would not own a gasser again, night and day difference.

RE: Do newer Winnie Minnies (2015+) have leak issues?

RE: Camping in a high temperature area.

Our 2 previous motor homes only had 1 A/C which did not work well in the heat of the day with the sun hitting it, so we purchased a Vornado fan to help circulate air had it blowing to the back of the coach to help cool the bedroom and it made a big difference. Now we have 2 A/C units and keeping cool is no issue but we still use the fan to circulate air.

RE: Considering move from class A to C

Look into a Super C on either Ford, Chevy or Dodge truck 550 cab and chassis. I have the Thor Omni on the F550 chassis and the ride and drive comfort is so much better than the van chassis.

RE: Class C that's easy to fix?

The Thor omni/magnitude motor homes are Super C's and are on the Ford F 550 chassis, not a gas engine but have the 6.7L diesel and have 4X4. I have the XG32 and really like it.

RE: Bear Spray

While out and about keep an eye out for Bear poop, it's easy to identify. It has little bells in it and smells like bear spray.

RE: Need Generator Help!

I use a pump that is used for filling oil in the lower unit on outboard engines works much better than the funnel.

RE: Removing seized shackle bolts?

Cut off wheel or SawzAll for the win.

RE: Dicor lap sealant or Eternabond tape for new roof vent

Pro's and con's to everything, Dicor is easy to replace, but you have to keep an eye on it and do maintenance. Tape will last a long time, but is extremely hard to remove without hurting the roof liner. I use the dicor and do the maintenance, but carry the tape incase of an emergency.

RE: New Thor Omni xg32

I have an XG32. We really like it and it drives awesome, no suspension or steering upgrades needed and plenty of power. No real issues with the coach, the sunshade for the overhead bunk window came loose had it fixed under warranty and had a window over the dinette that was making noise so Thor replaced both of them.

RE: Buying RV from a far away dealer

I live north of KC Mo, purchased a new motor home last year a Thor XG32 from Lazy Days in Tampa Florida, had to have some warranty work done on it and had no problem with the local dealer taking care of it, they only had the unit for a week to fix the problem.

RE: 6 liter V8 Chevy Vortec question

If you don't like the performance of a gas C, look into a super C with a diesel engine. Had 2 different C's with the gas engine an E350 and a E450 and now have a Thor Omni XG32 on the F550 chassis with 6.7L diesel, It has all sorts of power, drives great with no modifications needed for handling and is comfortable and quiet. Oh and very good fuel economy, we are averaging 14MPG pulling a trailer and it never down shifts on hills except for some very long steep grades, set the cruise control and go. I looked that vehicle up, my goodness is that a beauty. We really like it a lot. Certainly get a lot of people coming up wanting to ask questions and look at it, The handling and driving comfort was definitely worth the upgrade.

RE: Harbor Freight Tailgator generator review

Purchased the Yamaha 2000 generator last year for dry camping. Nice little generator, will run for about 12 hours on a gallon of gas and is very quiet.

RE: Save Your Atwood Furnace

That is a common issue. I purchased a 2 part Encapsulating epoxy, like they use on automotive electronics and encapsulated mine. Water was not an issue after that.

RE: Life expectancy of a small C class.... Ex Rental

I would not purchase a former rental unit, I have seen how the renters use and drive them. It's not theirs and they don't care. Going across Wyoming where the speed limit is 80mph the only RV that passes us is a rental. The ford chassis and drive train may be good, but that is pure abuse.

RE: sears 3000 inverter

Find a used Honda or Yamaha. You'll be much happier in 5 years. I agree, I have the Yamaha generator 2000i. It's quiet and runs for approximately 12 hours on a gallon of gas. Purchased it new last year for just under $900
