RE: How do you transport your mobioity scooter

It sounds like with your rig you need to consider a scooter that breaks down. We have one and they are not that expensive and will fit in some pretty small spaces.

RE: Questions About People's Knowledge Of Various Issues

Dougrainer gave you grate advice advise! I have had 3 class C and 2 class A motorhomes. I liked all of them but like Doug said a class C usually has more sleeping room, in fact the smallest one we had slept the most people. Our class A has a rear bed but in the front you have to fold out the couch and make up the dinette to sleep 3 more people. I would not want to have to do that every night. If you carefully examine the over cab area for damage on a Class C and get a solid one just be careful to keep everything sealed and if you have indoor storage, I would not be afraid of one. I really didn't notice much difference in how they drive.

RE: Rear Slide Control Board died

Try a division of Mobility RV at Hanlontown Iowa. Phone #800 933 7742. They are not part of Winnebago but they handle a lot of Winnebago obsolete parts. I have gotten parts for my 2001 Brave from them. They don't have everything but they may be worth a try. Good Luck!

RE: Oil for generator

My onan 4000 says use 30W but I use 10W30 and it works fine with no oil consumption. It is the sa me oil I use in the engine and if it is cold the genny cranks over easier.

RE: Can you put diesel oil in a gas generator?

While I am sure you can use diesel oil it is usually 15-40 and most gas generators call for 30W or 10W30 oil. The diesel is good oil and will not hurt the generator in warm weather but if you are in cold temps it would be better for the engine to use a lighter weight oil. JMHO

RE: Warm weather traveling

If the weather is in the 75 to 80 degree zone, our dash air does pretty good. I usually point the air ducts at me just so it doesn't hit me in the eyes. If it is uncomfortable I run the generator and the roof air. I don't notice a big difference in the gas bill. What if it costs a little more to be comfortable, it costs money to run the AC at home too.

RE: Roof type - leaks

What ever kind of roof you get, maintenance is the most important. In a class C, look very carefully at the cab over, that is a common place for problems with a class C. Good luck with what ever you buy, just have fun!

RE: Routes around Houston TX

The SE section of Beltway 8 is under construction. The lanes are so narrow I hate doing it in my car. The bright side is the tolls have been waved. The West 610 loop to I69 exchange is always a mess but doable. If you're not in a big hurry and want to avoid Houston all together, I suggest turn South at Winnie, take the ferry to Galveston, Freeport and pick up I69 (59) at Edna I agree, that is how we have done it several times with a 30 MH pulling a Jeep GC. It is an enjoyable and scenic trip.

RE: Best and worst routes across the Mountains ?

I think you will be fine on the up grades, shift down to save your brakes on the down grades. Go down in the same gear you go up in or even lower. I recommend flushing the brake fluid if it has not been done recently. I have driven 3 class C motor homes over the mountains, the newest was a '78 and the oldest was a '73. The only problem I had was vapor lock in the '78, it was a 350 Chevy and I found if I burned premium gas I had no problems with it. The other 2 were Dodges and no problems at all. Have fun and good luck!

RE: Antifreeze no longer pink

I am with everyone that said buy new, not worth the risk for what it costs. I am curious though because I winterized my MH a year ago and haven't used it. I hope the antifreeze is still good!

RE: Oil change + replace battery, which comes first ?

The age of the gas is a concern. The gas in our Mh is probably a year old too. I run it periodically and it seems fine but if it gets much older I don't know what to think. I have vintage cars that don't get much use but I haven't had an issue with the gas in them. I have had more trouble with small engines that do not hold much gas. Staybil or seafoam would possibly help.

RE: What do you do with ash/coals ?

When I am home I just spread the ashes from my fireplace in my garden, they are good for the soil. I would ask the campground what they want you to do with them.

RE: Oil change + replace battery, which comes first ?

I would replace the battery, warm up the engine to normal operating temperature, and change both the oil and the filter. At 3 years and 3000 miles plus sitting around that long, your oil does need changing in my opinion. I change mine every 3000 miles, sooner if I am going on a trip that would run it over 3000 miles before I get back.

RE: Winnebago Brave31c

What year and chassis are you looking at? We have a 2001 Brave 30W with 1 slide out. Love the house but not real happy with the chassis. It is a Workhorse with a Chevy 7.4 engine. the engine is fine but have had a couple other issues with it. If you are looking at newer ones with a Ford chassis or even a newer Workhorse I think they are better.

RE: Who do you use for Roadside Assistance?

We have had Good Sam for many years, we have only used them twice but it was on the same trip. They towed us 70 miles to an RV dealer where we could plug in for the night. The next day I had their mechanic check the motor home and he found a blown fuse and test drove it . He said we were fixed and charged us $100 and sent us on our way. It ran fine for the first day and then the second day we were within 10 miles of our destination and it quit running again. I called GS and they sent a tow truck but said it was an existing condition and I would have to pay. They towed us to a camp ground and the next day to a Chevrolet dealer who fixed the real problem. When we got home I appealed my case to GS and told them they towed us to a dealer that did not fix the problem the first time and they sent me a check for the second tow! I have been very satisfied with Good Sam towing service!

RE: Any one else giving up snow birding due to the covid

Well, the virus seems to be getting worse every day, what is everyone thinking now? We are definitely staying home and hoping for a vaccine soon! We even cancelled Thanksgiving with our family and probably Xmas too. We hate it but would like to be around a few more years after this is over! :(
