RE: Interior adhesive

I have had good luck with both gorilla glue and epoxy on some projects. I actually re glued a body panel on the front of our motor home after we hit a large dog last summer in Montana. I was where the plastic body was glued to a metal brace and it is still holding fine.

RE: Front suspention

I would definately get the front weighed, as said above you want to get the correct springs for your weight or you are just shooting in the dark! I can't remember which springs I put in my Brave and I am not where I can check. I think it was 5 or 6 thousand. but it doesn't matter because I am longer and a different model than you have.

RE: Yellowstone Trip

When we were younger we did 14 A with a '68 Pontiac Tempest pulling an Apache fold down trailer, then a pickup camper, then a small Class C MH and loved it. Now that I am old (75) and our Class A Winnebago transmission doesn't really like mountain grades I won't do that anymore. 16 is pretty steep but not that bad, that is how we came home from Yellowstone the last time we were out there with this rig. Have fun Yellowstone and the big horns are beautiful. Just watch your brakes and gear down.

RE: Front suspention

I have a 2001 Winnebago Brave 30 W. It had air bags in the front springs but always sat slightly low in front. We were on a trip and both front bags failed which let it sit really low. We finished the trip like that and when I got home I ordered new springs from Henderson Steer Safe. I put them in myself, it was a fairly big job, but well worth it. It sits up like it should and rides and drives better than ever. You have to weigh the front end and they will send the proper springs based on the weight. The front end then has to be re-aligned. The cost for the springs was a little over $500 if I remember right and the alignment was somewhere around $100+. I am very satisfied with the new springs. If you are not mechanically inclined with a place to work, the alignment shop could probably install them. Edit: I just checked and I think the springs are called super steer not steer safe and they are priced at $360 a pr on Henderson's web site. Just google Henderson super steer.

RE: My electric steps come out when I turn on my headlights

The bad ground sounds like the most likely problem. I have a different problem on my 2001 Winnebago, the steps used to retract any time the engine was started and the door was closed, Now I have to put the switch in the on position or they will not retract when the engine is started making it possible to drive with the steps out. This is not good so I have a note to myself to check the steps on my dash. It seems like there is always a problem with a motor home! lol

RE: roadside service providers

I have had good luck with Good Sam E R S. They once towed us 70 miles.

RE: Dental work in Mexicali

Ok I know a lot of people go to Mexican dentists, my question is are they as good as U.S. dentists? I want a "painless" dentist (as much as possible) and I want quality work with good sanitization practices?

RE: Letting diesel rv sit for 3 months

I am a retired farmer (after 40 years). Our combines sat in the shed for 9 months out of the year and some tractors sat for 4 months, all diesels and we had no problems, as long as the batteries were good they started right up when we needed to get them out. I would not worry about the time you are talking about.

RE: senior pass

I can not say nice things about our current government. I've not heard that purposeful but I do not doubt it. When My wife and I Visited Grand Canyon the very nice person told us about the pass $10 bucks and we got in free. would have cost more just to drive in without the pass so we saved money at the get-go. When my wife (Who was a tad older than I) died I qualified for my own pass so I walked into the park office, handed the worker 10 bucks and my driver's license and she handed me a pass (And returned the DL) I'm told our legislators decided to up the price to what 80 bucks now. And now they want to restrict the use...... I agree, we paid full price for most of our lives. Then they give us a break, then they take it away. It SUCKS I don't care who you think is MAGA! There are two things we can do about it. .Write/Call/Contact our legislators and explain our Pleasure over this added cost. Two VOTE.

RE: Toilet Leaking

You need to figure out where the leak is. It could be the floor seal or it could be the fresh water supply or the flush valve. I guess if you can't get to it and can afford it, just replace the unit, but, make sure you have a new floor seal gasket to put under the new stool.

RE: senior pass

I think it stinks, they just keep taking away more things we have paid for! You an not believe anything that the government promises!

RE: Continental Tires PSI rising 20

WOW, 20 psi gain seems too much to me at those low temperatures! I don't have an answer to your problem but good luck figuring it out! I would definitely check the tires with a reliable gauge and if the readings are correct I would call the tire company for support!

RE: What jack to have onboard for roadside tire changes?

On my previous M. H. I used the levelers to change a front tire and at a later date a rear outside dual. I also carry a bottle jack in case the levelers won't get it high enough. If the axle is too low to get the bottle jack under the levelers should get it high enough. My M H only has 19.5 tires, If they were any bigger I am not sure I could handle them. I do have G.S. roadside assistance, but I hate to sit on the side of the road for an hour or more for something I can do myself. I an 75 so things keep getting harder but I think I can still do it! LOL

RE: Have no electrical power and no propane on one side of coach

Yes, thanks for the update, it is always nice to hear how things worked out!

RE: Have no electrical power and no propane on one side of coach

Switch the 50 amp breaker on the RV park power pole. You may have lost just one leg of the input power. The salesman switch shuts off basic power inside the coach and sometimes gets bumped to the off position. Most are right near the front door. They are NOT called Salesman switches. They are called Battery Disconnect Switches. Doug I agree, I have never heard them called salesman switches until I got on this forum, I have always called them battery disconnect switches and I use mine to disconnect the batteries when the motor home is in storage.

RE: 15 Amp Service

Just don't run more than one thing at a time that draws a lot of current. My wife's hair dryer and a vacuum cleaner have both kicked a breaker for me. Any thing with a heat element draws a lot of current. Just take it easy and you will be fine, the worst that can happen is to trip a circuit breaker.

RE: What do you do for condensation inside cabinets?

If your humidity is that high, I think a dehumidifier is your best bet. They are not terribly expensive. I would check Walmart and Amazon as well as the big lumberyard chains.

RE: RV storage - how much room is needed?

I think your drive is long enough that you should not have problems backing in. I think a wider door would be nice. I have a 32 x 45 shop but the door is 20 feet wide and it gives a lot of room to back in and makes it a lot easier to get a vehicle close to the wall. I have 3 antique cars stored in it and with a narrower door it would be difficult to get my 30 foot Motor Home in beside the cars. I sure like storing the camper inside rather than out especially in the winter even though I used to cover it when I had to store it outside.
