RE: Pro-Pride Hitch

We are now into a motorhome, but we did own a travel trailer that swayed all over the road with the large SUV I had as atow vehicle. It was our decision to try the Hensley hitch and that made all the difference to allow us to continue a sway free drive. I do know if I was ever to go back to a travel trailer it would have either a pro pride or a Hensley hitch hooked to it. They used to have a money back warranty if you didn't like how it performed. What have you got to loose? It will make your towing experiance comfortable.

RE: Tiffin outstde storage doors

Exactly what are you asking, the striker lock bar for ease of opening the handle or the actual side door hinges? or how the door fits in the opening?

RE: What is too hot

My TST sytem will alarm at 157 degrees, have had it go off once on my truck when a brake pad stuck and got the brakes too hot radiating into the wheel & tire. Let me know I had a problem that I was able to fix. Highest I normally will see in Arizona during the summer while driving is mid 120 degrees.

RE: Windshield sunscreen

We looked at a few rigs in various campgrounds that had the MagnaShade on them, talked with the owners and decided to spend the big bucks for our own set. Very pleased and would suggest them to others. We bought the front windshield and the drivers and passenger front windows too. Does make a huge difference in the heat getting into the rig.

RE: Hellwig Sway Bars on 2021 24-footer

I did the same on my 27 ft class C and was towing a car. To help even more I added the rear trac bar from Helwig.The two sway bars helped a LOT but that trac bar made the rig drive straight and true.

RE: Electric Windshield Shade problem

On our rig the windshield sunshade and night shade have two seperate motors. Watching various videos on You Tube can give you some ideas on how that unit comes out and how to replace the motors. Might want to do both at the same time once you have them down and out.I had a warranty repair on my motorhome and watched the tech pull the unit out and replace the motor, not a terrible job. The electric shade in the windshield of my motorhome won't respond when I press the switch for it. I don't hear anything from the motor that moves it. The sunshade behind it was working fine but now will only go up and down about a foot. Are they both operated by the same motor? Does this sound like something I can repair myself? Please help. It's hot out there!

RE: front seats

Our 2013 Tiffin had the same issue on the frint seats and also on the couch. Had the front seats recovered by a trim shop as the original covers were no longer able to be purchased.Had covers made for the couch, it is a industry wide problem and having the covers remade is probably going to be your only option.

RE: Campground Rates

Was camping 75 away from Glaicer National park, stopped at a rv park very close to the entrance, asked about a site to fit my 40 ft MH? Nope none this year, and only 8 nights for next year, not all in a row, 3 days then 5 days in different months. I asked the rates? $197.50 per night at this years rate, but expect it to go up about 10% for next year. Decided I didn't need to return next year at rates like that. Will find another part of the country to visit.

RE: Windshield covers

Out for 3 months roaming around the North West and got tired of being cooked with the heat coming through the windshield and side glass. Yep, Magna Shade are very expensive and they are about 6 weeks out from placing an order, but having them up and working for the past few days was well worth the investment. These things just plain work. Have not met anyone who owns them that has felt they spent money foolishly.

RE: Anyone have an all elec. car

I own a 2019 Model X 100D and LOVE it, we use it as our everyday vehicle. I charge from home either on Saturday or Sunday ( electric rates are lower on weekend) for a few hours to bring the battery up to 80% charge. I use the car all week and get it down to about 35 to 40% charge, so about 160 to 200 miles used. As close as I can figure it costs me about $8.50 to $9.00 to charge it back up at home. Lots of room, fast, very comfortable and so far zero maintenance costs. Just wish it was 4 down towable. I bought it in North Carolina and drove it cross country to Az. Really enjoyed that drive and how easy it was to charge along the way.

RE: Does closing most A/C vents create back-pressure?

Someone may know more than I do, but we used to do that exact same thing in our travel trailer, never had any problems. I would think maybe with less air flow it might ice up in some conditions, but never had that issue.

RE: The importance of a TPMS Tire Pressure Monitoring System

I learned a long time ago some folks are just set in their ways and no matter how you explain the benifits of some devise, they will come up with a way to say it isn't needed. Those of us that see how something "could" keep us safer, might jump at the chance to purchase said item. I know from first hand experiance that tire pressure monitor systems can and do help in many situations, and I am a beliver in owning a system. As I always say, you get to spend, or not spend your money anyway you want. The original poster has seen the reason so many of us have decided to buy what makes us feel safer.

RE: Buying a new class A

Have had gas and now diesel, all purchased used and well cared for. The V-10 Ford powered 34 ft 2018 gas was fine for the traveling we did and it pulled our towed car fine. But was noisey and not a great ride, so moved to a Tiffin RED 34 ft, night and day difference in quiet, ride and quality. Then moved up to a 40 ft Tiffin Bus, even nicer. For the money your wanting to spend you should be able to find a quality well kept used Tiffin. Good luck in your hunting

RE: full size corner bed vs queen corner bed

Conner beds are not my cup of tea! They are really hard to make up, and if your on the inside, hope you can sleep the entire night without waking up! We made that mistake ONCE, our first travel trailer we kept for exactly 2 outings, and put it up for sale. Never again own a corner bed RV.

RE: Bay View RV Resort in Texas has Workamper Openings:

Exactly and well said! And the previous posts are exactly why no park advertises for workampers on this site anymore. If you don't want the job, don't apply. But for many workampers there is more to consider than just exactly how you break down the hourly wage. Would you actually come out ahead working at Walmart for those 20 hours at $15.00 an hour? You would then have to pay for an RV site, utilities, the cost of commuting etc. The work for site arrangement isn't taxed. You would not have the advantage of working where you live which allows you to check on your pets, eat lunch at your own home and be at work in 10 seconds. If you are a couple and one of you worked outside of the park, the other person would either have to drive you to and from work or spend the day without transportation. There is much more to consider other than math.

RE: Tiffin or Fleetwood.

Have now owned 2 Tiffin motorhomes, both were fantastic and have enjoyed the last one the most. Calling for questions is always answered correctly and quickly by Tiffin staff.. When I needed a part that too was handled well. When time comes to upgrade, I will look at what THOR did to Tiffin before making that decision.

RE: Cali planning carb tests for Class A

Just one more reason to never go there and not spend a penny of my money in that state.

RE: TFT Code for ScanGauge 2 ??

When I was having difficulty getting my Ford V-10 class C to read the trans temps after trying all the manual suggestions, I called Scan-Gage and they explained what I had missed. That made it work, so might want to just call them.

RE: Patching Coroplast

I had cut the bottom of my 5th at least 4 times when doing work up under the trailer for slide out motors, plumbing and some electrical. Went to the Lowe's and bought 2x1 6ft wood and cut it to lay on each side of the cut out overlapping the edge by 1 inch. Screwed that wood to the uncut coreplast kleaving the 1 inch over the hole. Put the coreplast up and screwed that to the wood. Was able to get back uop into the bottom by removing the screws when needed. Never had it fail and fall down.
