RE: Anybody launching a boat with a Class A?

We have done it both ways with the rear hitch and a front hitch.hen in the back just a twitch of the steering wheel moves the boat feet because of the tail end swing. rear and side cameras help a lot. Practice in a big empty parking lot

RE: Good sam platinum roadside assist

We have had both Good Sam and Coach Net and found CN to be superior. Had a flat tire, inside dual in my storage spot. Called good sam a repair man was sent , I won’t go into all the problems with the service, eventually the valve stem was tightened all ok . I paid the repair cost 183.00 or so. I’m unsure if good sam will reimburse me. Anyone have the answers. Thanks

RE: Storing With or Without Full Gas Tank

We always store full even in the season if we are down for a few weeks.

RE: First front tire blow out....

Do you have a TPMS and if so did it give you any warning. In theory ours alarmed after a 20% lose of air pressure. In your case this could have been instantaneous.

RE: I did not know

So who did the servicing every 25,000 or 50,000 miles. Did or do you use Allison specified approved synthetic transmission fluid

RE: Best way to sell the coach

I learned, in a time long long ago that time forget, that in order to make a deal you needed a willing seller and a willing buyer. This assumes no duress by either party. The seller did not get more than it was worth and who knows if he had waited for the other buyers to make an offer he may have received even more $$$$$$. He may have received more than he thought it was worth or some agent said it was worth.Facebook is the most insidious application in the world! My buddy just sold his 12 year old TT for 3k more than it was worth on Facebook marketplace... AND it was the 1st person to come and look... within 12 hours of posting He had 6 or 7 others that wanted to come look that same night...

RE: Let’s hear your best MPG and driving style ?

Cat said that the best MPG is achieved when you are running at the RPM WHERE THE HIGHEST TORQUE IS ACHIEVED. We ran a 100 PRM above that suggestion. For us that was ~60mpg! We found lower elevations resulted in higher MPG. When the sulfur content of the fuel was reducing we lost ~0.3 to 0.5 mpg. We log all fuel mileage. We also set Tire pressure per the tire manufacturers recommendation based on 4 corner weights. We ran a TPMS to monitor tire pressure. We rarely utilized full acceleration starts.

RE: New Class A Winnebago owners

Cat said best mileage is to drive at the RPM WITH THE HIGHEST TORQUE for us that was ~60 mph and we ran 100 RPM higher that rated highest torque. We found lower elevations yielded higher mpg. We also ran with the tire pressure as recommended by the manufacture suggested based on the four corner weights

RE: Do you always need an RV Park ? .....

Back in in the day we camped along the edge of the lake with no services. Well you could use the pit toilet if you wanted. I made the guys use it and the women could use the inside clean facilities. We have done it else where even in rest areas where it was allowed ..... or can you BLACK TOP BOONDOCK from time to time ? My main experience has been with a diesel dually and large truck camper but there are MAJOR LIMITATIONS with that ! Hence my move to a class A

RE: Radial Tire Valve Core Failures

We did a bead balance one time and had this problem. Replacing the valve stems will not solve anything IMHO. WE just lived with it. But relied on the TPMS to tell us when it was time put air in the tires. My front radial tires are Toyo 245/75R 22.5. When checking air pressure (105 pounds), I occasionally have the cores fail which allows air to escape dramatically, and I need to scramble to get the cap back on the valve stem on or replace the cores. This time I took it to Les Schwab Tires for them to check air pressures and to replace the valve cores. Both front tire valve cores had failed. This seems to happen about every 6 months. Does anyone else have this issue. They said that it is common with high pressure tires?

RE: Class A Low Bridge Accident

Your time is coming! The guy got what he deserved. There is no shortage of the incompetent on the roads for whatever reason, especially recently. That applies to everything from the largest class A down to Dodge Neons. You currently have a high percentage who think traffic laws and common sense,along with common courtesy, no longer apply since Covid came along. Not to mention an 80 yr old geezer operating 10 tons of motorhome.

RE: Class A Low Bridge Accident

I remember seeing this bridge or another like it om 60 minutes. I worked in a building that had a second story above a road way. They placed hanging chains before you could enter it to rake the top of the vehicle as it passed. We still had a coke truck ignore the warning and hit it. We with the gee wizz electronic stuff today you would think the could rig a height device wired to a stop light that would detect a over height vehicle and trigger the stop light before the bridge. Would not turn green until you backed up and turned around.

RE: Used class a

2000 to 2004 Newmar products. So I have been researching class a dps and I am thinking more about a early 2000 to mid 2000 year models. I want around a 36 footer with independent front end. I don't like where most homes have the tv, up front would hurt my wife and my necks. I want one with a diesel motor with plenty of hp. Also want want one with a fiberglass roof. Solar would be nice we boondock mostly. Any one care comment on a model and brand. With keeping my budget price around 59000$ anyone hav any suggestions thanks. I have been looking at the Winnebagojourney 36 footer.

RE: Outrageous CA registration fee!

So tell me what you gas tax is! Last December we bought a 2000 Airstream Land Yacht. They want $775 to register it for 2022! WTH? We never paid anything like that much before on our previous motorhome. Is this some new punishment from our a-hole governor for our "carbon footprint" or some such nonsense? Does anyone know what's going on? We are furious! We love living here for the climate and geography but this has to be the worst governed state in the union. You may as well get used to it, under the current valuation to registration charges, in four or five years it will go down to about $600. For the first time, Californians have the opportunity to pay more for vehicle registration than many pay for insurance! Aparently the residents like it, 66% just voted to keep the administration in dictatorship. You should enjoy your gas prices, it is only $7 a gallon close to you, coming to your neighborhood soon. Click Here "this has to be the worst governed state in the union" You are just figuring this out now?

RE: Class As in cold weather?

Not all diesel Class A have an aqua hot system! If that is what you want check it out before buying! Class A diesel units are going to have some version of Aquahot diesel fired baseboard heat. This also heats the wet bays and keeps everything nice and toasty. If the unit you look at does not have this then pass. All the plumbing in inside the coach so even if it got really, really cold you could add a small electric heater or a light bulb or 2 to the wet bays and you will be fine. We have traveled in most every weather you can imagine and we have been fine. I must say that when the company sent us to ND in January (20 below zero) we passed and drove our car and stayed in a hotel!

RE: Anyone know of a seller for a dash cover rug or mat

Our Boston road on the dash every time we went some where. Personally I would keep the dog off the dash. When we bought our MH the people had hooks on each side to put up a mesh net that kept their dogs off the dash
