RE: Campground near Pittsburgh zoo

As mentioned, not a lot of campgrounds in Pittsburgh metro area. There is Fox Den Acres near New Stanton where I-70 and PA Turnpike (I-76) converge. Easy in and out of campground ( about a mile to the turnpike), approx. 34 miles, about a 45 minute trip.

RE: 2010 650 Cummins mileage

Thanks for the comments, I'm just trying to weigh a number of variables. Dennis, you probably don't carry a calculator with you all the time, but what would you estimate your average mpg on your rig over a number of years? I know you've traveled all over this country, a number of areas we've also been thru. We've been in a couple of campgrounds together, such as Portal and Bella Terra, just never had the pleasure of meeting you and your wife.

2010 650 Cummins mileage

The wife & I are contemplating a larger rig, one with a bath & 1/2 and king bed. Found a 2010 44' that has the 650 Cummins with 39K miles on it. Anyone here have a 600 ish in their rig that can give me an idea of what to expect fuel mileage wise? We plan an extended trip late summer this year from southwest PA to Washington state which will include about all degrees of travel from flat lands, to mountains, etc.

RE: Hankook AH11 vs AH35

RE: Hankook AH11 vs AH35

I put 6 new AH35's on this spring, very pleased with the ride. I replaced GoodYears back in 2012 with Hankooks, the ride, handling, and quiet were a very noticeable improvement. The 275 75 22.5 AH35 tires are 2 plys more than the AH11 and AH12, I had concerns that the ride may be a little more harsh, but they appear to be the same great quality. Price out the door around $2,900.00.

RE: Atwood Jacks/Levellers issue

Add me to the list of people that have replaced the Atwood Leveling System on their rig. After 9 seasons of issues, I had the complete Atwood system removed and replaced with an HWH Auto-Level system in September 2018. This season has been enjoyable not having to worry about multiple issues with the jacks. The new system that was installed was not cheap, but definitely worth the cost!!

RE: Atwood electric jacks control panel will not turn on

I had continuous issues with the Atwood jacks since I bought the rig in 2010 when the rig only had 3200 miles on it. After board replacements, jack repair, jack replacements, multiple faults, etc, etc, I had the whole system removed and replaced totally with an HWH system. Not cheap, but, peace of mind is worth plenty! I replaced the system last September in Elkhart.

RE: Toad wobble

Sounds like "death wobble". I have a '13 Equinox with electronic steering, towed it for the first 3 years without any issues with the steering. The wobble is created by sharp turns such as pulling out of a side street, and the only way to stop the wobble is to come to a complete stop, and then proceed. You don't make many friends on the street this way. I have to remove a fuse to tow the car which also kills the electric to the steering which obviously effects the unwanted wobble. As previously suggested on this form, I wrap a bungee on my steering wheel and hook the two ends on the front edge of the driver's seat to create tension on the steering wheel to keep it centered, it does not take a lot of tension to stop the problem. My Equinox is a 4 cylinder which has electronic steering, the 6 cylinder engines have hydraulic steering which is not prone to wobble. I've towed the last 11,000 miles(approx.)in this manner.

RE: Bowling Green, KY to Indy

Thanks folks, we came thru Louisville around 1:00 yesterday without much of a slow down on I-65.

Bowling Green, KY to Indy

Is the preferred route I-65 straight thru Louisville?

RE: Time for a Leveling System Upgrade?

Bruce, I went thru many failures with the Atwood system also, boards, motors, jack screws, etc. Last year after the system defaulted three times on an extended trip, I decided to replace the whole system. HWH master shop (Stewart's) in Elkhart did the work for me, less than any of the prices on here. I pulled in on a Wednesday morning at 7:00, and drove away the next day at 9:00 am.

Hankook AH37 275 70 22.5

Ready to change out tires, in 2012 I had Hankook AH12 tires put on the rig. They've been a good value along with a smooth ride and very quiet. Hankook no longer makes the AH12 which was a 16 ply tire, they now offer the AH37 which is an 18 ply tire. Any thoughts to the extra 2 plies effecting the ride???
