RE: 2015 Ford Focus flat tow damage

More info please. Tow setup, speeds towed, brake system. What reason is Ford giving for denying warranty? Your Focus was a 2015, when did this happen? How many total miles had you towed the Focus?

RE: Black tank valve replacement

I don't know your specific setupb - PICs? If in that predicament and there was enough exposed pipe I would cut it, cut small section out to give yourself the room needed, install an appropriate sized Fernco fittting, and install the new valve.

RE: Internet question????

GMail does have an import feature. You will need to deal with all your accounts that use your earthlink account and have those changed along with any other users you want to continue corresponding with. arthlink should allow forwarding and if you keep that account for a bit, you can respond to any correspondance with your gmail account. Good luck. I've advocated gmail, yahoo mail, etc. over provider accounts for may years. Loose your provider and you loose your mail account. Gmail will work on any provider's network.

RE: Help finding floorplan

Winnebago Sightseer 36z, or Winnebago Adventurer 36z. The Winnebago Adventurer 38q is also a nice unit. May have to do something about the recliners, depending on model year. There also Tiffin Allegro Open Road models that might fit in, but you will likely have to go a bit older to get into your price range. The thing we don't like about the Tiffins is that they don't seem to include dual pane windows. A necessity for us. Good luck. We found a 2018 Sightseer 36z that has all our/your wants - the recliners is actually a reclining sofa with footrests. If that doesn't work for us, we will remove it and install two recliners. Still waiting for the title to transfer.

RE: Canada barring folks still

Apparently, they are reopening to fully vaccinated folks on July 6th. NHL should have just waited I guess. That's tomorrow at 1 minute after midnight - and only for "eligable" fully vaccinated folks. Like Canadian Citizens. The border is not opening to the general public!

RE: Alaska advice

Get on line and search for Ferry to Alaska. Lots of expensive options. Tools there to estimate fares and times, etc. No Canadian Customs unless de board into Canada, can't do that at this time anyhow.

RE: Propane hook up for peripherals

Without seeing your particular setup, no one will be able to reccomend anything specific. Better to get a knowlegable individual involved, on site.

RE: How long to build Class A Gas motorhome

It's not how long it takes to build - it's how long it takes b4 they start the build.

RE: Washer/Dryer Combo

Splende combo, vented model, not cheap, small loads, works great, will never go back to a laundramat. Pick your clothes to be wash-n-wear. Loads are not really all that small - we do our king-size bed sheets and pillow cases in one load. Just two of us so the BIG sticks n bricks laudry equipment is not missed at all. Occasional access to a full size laudry facility for large items like comforters is welcome occasionally.

RE: Gas Vs Diesel Yah-Yah-Yah!

There are ways to mitigate some of the front engine noise and the possible poor handling characteristics of the gas coach. Not saying it can ever be as nice or comfortable as a DP, but there is that price tag. Add just $3k for improvements to the gas coach and lot of the "bads" will go away.

RE: Gas Vs Diesel Yah-Yah-Yah!

We just went into our second gas coach. Number one was floor plan. We got every feature we wanted. I was very familiar and comfortable with the F53 chassis, handling and upgrades to improve that. After about 20k miles on that first gas coach I was very comfortable in the driver's seat. Not impressed with the cost of a diesel and the maintenance that goes with it and the, generally, more complex systems they incorporate, we went for a high end gas coach. I am a DIYr for maintenance and felt the diesel coach and it's systems would be beyond my mechanical abilities, or at least my desire to do that maintenance.

RE: What month to avoid the massive bug hatch??

Most years - bugs in the northern lattitudes can be bad from mid-May through June and some into July. Mid July and later are generally pretty good for weather and low bug levels.

RE: Can I run my Onan while plugged into shore power?

The main reason to run the gen is to move the awful ethanol gas through. For this you do not need a load to be placed on the generator head or the engine. The other reason is to exercise the generator head, which you DO NOT need to do weekly or even monthly. It is good to do once a month or every two months, but depending on the gen it is not really that necessary. On my old Onan I would let it sit all winter, and even a few years for one sitting, and all was fine. I could not tell any difference in either the gen or the engine. If you will not use it for a while it is best to run the carb dry or at least use Stabil gas additive to keep the gas from turning to varnish in the carb. There are other methods of course... As for transfer switches or circuit breakers or however your particular RV switches I, nor anyone, can say, that is particular to your setup. Are these recommendations comming from Cummins Onan? I can't find those recommendations anywhere. Cummins suggests 30 days for a load exercise and it is to warm up the generator head and expell any moisture causing corrosion. Time would likely depend a lot on environment of storage. Gascondition is, again, greatly affected by storage conditions, mostly moisture.

RE: GSC Roadside Assist vs Tire and Wheel Protection

I believe you need Platinum Complete to get the Tire & Wheel coverage included.
