RE: 2010 and 2011 Winnebago Vista 30W Owners

Hello everyone. Anyone still RVing LOL. We went 3 years and didn't take our sightseer out due to so many health issues. Man it is tough getting old. Late last summer, my husband said he would not feel comfortable driving the 33c and towing a car so we sold it rather than let it sit any longer. We immediately started looking for a small Class C (our first rv was a 25 foot Class C that we loved and put 21,000 miles the first year we had it.) Since we will just be makking short trips and maybe a few month long visits to friends and families, we wanted an older, low mileage and great shape that we wouldn't invest a fortune in. Unbelievable how many uncared for there out there. LOL Finally about 6 weeks ago found one about 3 hours from us. Drove over and it was exactly what we wanted. The seller had installed hydraulic auto levelers which was a huge selling point for us. The seller moved to Florida about 6 months before and came out to sell it. He had 4 days to sell it before he had to leave to go home so he took our offer and we went to his bank, wired the money to him and drove it home. The only thing it needed done was to have it totally stripped and reseal all the seams etc. and we wanted to relocate the TV to a more comfortable position. It is now at our RV guy being done. We will head out end August for a month maiden trip to visit my sister in Omaha and maybe go to Branson Mo. I won't be released from the Doctor until end of July as I had rota tor cuff surgery in December and then had to have it done again in May as the tear didn't heal. It is now on the mend (a tough recovery though) Won't be released to even start lifting anything more than a coffee cup until end of July. Well our last 3 years in a nut shell, so what is everyone else up to.

RE: Replacing accelerator pedal on 2005 E450 Fleetwood

Raise the seat! I’m 6’4” and these seats are too low. They make your knees face out and your foot isn’t square to the accelerator. I always add spacers to raise my seat two inches or more. That is exactly what my husband is experiencing. May be that his legs are being pushed out like you said so his foot is not straight on the pedal. He is also 6'4 and his foot just does not line up with the accelerator pedal so he feels like only his little toe is on it. The new seats and a wider pedal (The RV place we took it do will be doing both) should solve the problem. If it still doesn't work, will look into raising the seat or using a cushion to get him a little higher. He now feels like he is sitting in a hole

RE: Class C steering stabilizer

We had a Safe T Steer installed on our 30 foot class A and our 33 foot Class A. We did not really notice a difference that was worth the purchase price. A good alignment is the best thing you can do IMHO

RE: Replacing accelerator pedal on 2005 E450 Fleetwood

Thanks everyone. I am going to check the covers and we are getting ready to take it out and have it resealed and cab seats replaced. I called him and he said he might have some ideas. He remodels RV's and we have used him for years. I am going to look at covers to see if any might work also. Bordercollie My husband is feeling the opposite. He feels like the seat is way to low. As he is 6'4 everything he drives the seat is as far back as possible. That is why we are going to replace the cab seats with a little taller seat for him. We are long time RV'rs. Traveled for 6 months of the winter for 12 years. As we have gotten older, health reasons either one or the other kept us home for 3 years plus my husband now does not feel comfortable driving a huge Class A and tow a car so we sold it last year and just now found the short Class C. We had one many years ago and loved it. We just have to do a few modifications to make it ours. Thanks again everyone. My husband just felt like he was using only his little toe on the accelerator. Might get used to it but would be better if wider for sure

Replacing accelerator pedal on 2005 E450 Fleetwood

We just purchased a 2005 Fleetwood 26Q. My husband has noticed that the accelerator pedal is so narrow and sits so close to the motor housing he is having a problem getting his foot on it. Has anyone replaced the pedal with something wider or cut away the housing or have a fix for this. Thanks for any input.
