For 40 years we always carried a full spare, 20 ton jack, cheater bar, and torque wrench. We had three flats, once on a two lane road heading to St. John AZ, one inside the Grand Canyon and once on I-25 heading to Albuquerque. changed each of them

RE: Pickle on My Entry Door Grab Handle

x2 and many of us are use to blowing noise, fan noise etc and do not think of others. I generally stay as far away from tent campers as I can as they some times make to much to much noise having a good time. Our heat pumps are not loud enough to be noticed on the outside.If you listen closely you can hear some white noise. Your white noise may be annoying noise to others. Especially if the others are in a tent.

RE: House Batteries are fully charged but acts like they are not

you need to load test each battery to determine status I have a 2010 Class A Georgetown ForestRiver. Electrical works fine when plugged into shore power. When I took it off shorepower, generator would not start, steps would not come in, interior lights would not come on and jacks would not come up. Thinking the house batteries may be dead, I took the house batteries out and had the checked. Was told they were fully charged and was told everything was fine with the batteries. I put the house batteries back in and left the RV running for about 20 minutes. The Generator started and got the jacks up. Left generator running while I drove the RV for about an hour. When I stopped, I turned the general off, and just to see what happens I turned the interior lights on and they stayed on for about 5 minutes and then went off. Everything is acting like the house batteries are dead, but I just can't figure out why that is and what is wrong. The chassis battery starts the Rig up just fine, and not sure if that would have anything to do with it anyway. Anyone have any suggestions on what could be my problem and how to fix? Thank you in advance

RE: MH accident in gas station!

The driver must have been deaf or on the phone to do that much damage without hearing of feeling it and stopping sooner.

RE: Diminshed Value Claims

We had a car damaged in an accident and I can tell you the car fax report had little to no information that related to the accident report of repair report, estimate or claim. The car fax report did not identify the correct side of the car that was involved and the accident description had not relation ship to the accident report. IMHO carfax is a fraud

RE: Diminshed Value Claims

Ok folks, our first time here, so will try our best. We recently suffered some damage to our coach, from an 18 wheeler reversing into us, whilst stopped to fuel up!!! So, we had repairs completed, and are now fighting to claim for Diminished Value!! The whole thing about this is very frustrating, so we are now at a point of asking if anyway on this forum can offer any advise to help us out. We have tried the independent appraisal, and submitted that to the "at fault company's, insurance company" and still they are not accepting our!! Question 1. has this motor home ever been wrecked before? If so the insurance company will not pay more than the diminished value on a claim. Question 2. Was the "at fault" company involved before the repairs were authorized? Question 3. Where any other repairs made at the same time?

RE: extended warranty

Since there is no such thing as an extended warranty as it is a service policy most policies have language to exclude specific items. Some policies have language that will state that if a non covered part damages a covered part then the covered part is not covered. If a covered part damages a none covered part the non covered part is never covered. Some policies have low labor reimbursement rates. Most require pre approval before starting repairs. Best that you request a list of what is not covered!

RE: Run Flat on back dually

RE: building new campground

To find out what is in your area check out this site. RV Park review Make sure you get registered with them so folks can post reviews on you facility! My husband, son and I are thinking of building a small, no frills campground on our farm after we get out of dairying later this month. We want to cater to the RVers looking for a safe, comfortable spot to overnight. We do not want to have seasonals nor resident campers. We will start with level sights with water and electric and a dump station and a small bathhouse for $30 a night. Large pull thrus will be located in a grassy field just as you come into the park. Sites for longer stays will be set back further with trees and bushes around. The campground will be located behind our farm brewery. We are located 8 miles from the NYS Thruway in Central NY. I was wondering if I could get any feedback on this idea and some suggestions on what we could/should offer.

RE: Nightmare Repair

The FTL and Spartan chassis 2001 DSDP both had a side radiator with similar equipment. hydraulic cooling radiators mounted first, followed by the "charge air cooler", and finally the actual coolant radiator If possible would find a good radiator shop have them them clean it.

RE: Replacement Trailer Hitch? - 2002 Newmar Dutch Star DP

We too had a Hidden Hitch hitch failure on a 2002 DSDP. We had it repaired by a certified welder. Not sure if you will find a commercial hitch rated above 6K. We had a fastener failure not a weld failure hitch faliure

RE: Spartan Chassis' 1995-2003 engine instruments check this guys out as they may have one and can or answer your questions My Coach is a 2001 Newmar Dutch Star, diesel pusher on a Spartan Chassis. Specific model is DSDP 3891. My concern is the multiplexing box that manages all of the engine instruments. Should it fail, all engine instruments fail. Spartan 'obsoleted' this box a number of years ago and there is no alternative part that can be used. Spartan tells me this particular box was used from 1995 to 2003 on the chassis' they provided to RV manufacturers. The Spartan Part# is 0920-NN1-013 and the Stewart Warner part# is 988H-1. My question is "has anyone been faced with the failure of this box and what was the resolution?" Thanks for any insights/thoughts. Doug [email protected]

RE: Question for Class A owners.

Do not mean to steal the thread but putting the battery in the trunk is an old hot rod trick to get better front to rear balance. Have you worked on a new automobile recently??? I don't mean to be flippant but the new automobiles have so much stuff under the hood that it is impossible to see the engine without removing a lot of items. On both my Chevy and Chrysler, the space under the hood is so cramped that both of them have the battery in the trunk because there is no room under the hood in the engine compartment. Motor homes are cramped for some repairs, and easy for others. If you go to a shop that specializes in RV, they will take care of you. Many medium and large truck shops will work on RV's. Motor homes have their own unique challenges, but so do the new vehicles that are on the road. The fact is that any problem can be taken care of. Some issues just take a little longer. :B

RE: Extended Warranty fir Class A

Not a warranty but is a service contract. Ask for a list of what is NOT COVERED. IF a non covered part is the problem then nothing is covered
