RE: Toad Service ??

Break out the owners manual. Learn how to reset the internal computer, it likely will tell you. and then any auto parts store will replace the battery, you just have to reset the computer, and save about $200. If all else fails,,,,, check out youtube. Also, get yourself an OBD-II code reader, many small problems can be identified saving you thousands vs a STEALERSHIP visit.

RE: Quiet heater that doesn’t drain batteries ?

What we have done in the past is use a little buddy on low, when it was cold enough that it couldnt keep up, the thermostat was set for the furnace to kick in at 50. With the one we just bought, I'm installing the smallest camco, and going to use it the same way. The camco's are very easy on propane, quiet, and with the furnace as a backup, the little 3000 btuh should be great for our 26' motorhome.

RE: Drawer latches

A method we found to work was "child proof latches" for home use. Catches They arent expensive and they do work, but can be a nuisance when you want in.

RE: 600kbps = unuseable

It also depends on the model of your hotspot, 3G, 4G and evenwithin those , what band? Newer higher number bands, if available in an area may have much lower congestion because fewer phones or devices are capable of connecting to them.

RE: Is there any difference in DRIVING a gas class A vs diesel?

I wont decry the diesels, but I will point out that IF you are looking at new, things are changing with the new engine and tranny on the F-53. More torque and more gears next year should make drastic differences in the platform. Also some changes have been made in the new chassis, which should further close the gap in roll and sway. There are a few video's out there fast lane winnie model These are still 6 speed models, supposedly the 10 speeds are coming which should help noise and power even more, and the lean improvements have already been mentioned. Go and drive one, or give it a year to get the better tranny and try that. If your looking used, then go try one of them, but for new, be selective on what you research with all the changes coming out.

RE: Atwood 8535 heater

Maybe a search online for a troubleshooting guide, or this overall atwood guide which includes other appliances Atwood Also a check on you tube will give quite a bit of info on troubleshooting those units. Good luck.

RE: Considering an LLC, looking for experiences

x2 on South Dakota, dont even have to come back but once every 5 years for DL renewals, no vehicle inspections or personal property taxes. If you haven't researched them yet the mail forwarding service Dakota Post has a lot of information on their website. We changed everything out back in August, and are about to register the new (sorta) Winnie there using their services. It helps having a representative in the state.

RE: Independent Pricing of New and Used Motorhomes

It's Coronacrud season. The market was drained this past spring, and at the moment there is so little inventory out there that dealers will demand a premium, and private parties are trying to ride the same train. A year ago you could evpect new tt's and 5er's to sell for 25-35% below claimed MSRP, now discounts are more like5-10% if any.

RE: Travelling from Nevada to Alaska in the Middle of Winter

One other question. The others who have traveled during the Coronacrud up there mentioned that campgrounds and parks were closed to them, with you saying you wont be trying to stay in the camper, ,,, will motels accept travellers from the US?

RE: Canadian Entry with Vaccine?

Nothing personal but,,,, Dogs generally carry fewer risk than people. ;) I dont think Guvmints have worked it out as of yet since the vaccines are not generally available, But , I would expect something like that to happen next spring as the numbers vaccinated grows.

RE: Canadians still crossing into the USA

The one caveat to your post is that for those "older" folks you mention,,,,, many are going from areas with very low incidents of Coronacrud, to areas with much higher incident rates. It appears the timing of the new vaccines is about 2 months late to both protect them, and the US.

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

I just bought a 2010 Winnie Vista, and my 60+ pound Aussum Shepherd seems to think he is a cat, and belongs up on the dash. He doesnt jump up there while i'm driving, but does as soon as I leave him for fuel groceries etc, I know I can cut up a 3' wide carpet runner to fit, but thought I would check here first. Amazon had them for regular vans, but nothing like this. thanks for any ideas.

RE: Winnabego Vista

Thats why I worded it the way I did. Motorhomes are basically a year behind the chassis year, ie a 2020 Winnebago will usually bebuilt on a 2019 chassis. So,,, this year being a change year on powerplant from Ford, you have to be more specific. IF the OP is looking new, which engine becomes key.

RE: Winnabego Vista

Depending on the year, hp, torque, and overall performance should be basically the same as all the other F-53 chassis units from them and the other manufacturers. If you are looking at new, it "could" be based on either of two engines, the old 6.8 V-10, or the new 7.3 V-8. For 2020 chassis these are the Ford numbers with the 7.3 engine. Highlights Fuel Capacity 40 gallon, 55 gallon, 80 gallon Horsepower 350 hp @ 3,900 rpm/ 300hp @ 3,750 rpm (Economy) Torque 468 ft-lbs @ 3,900 rpm/ 425ft-lbs @ 3,250 rpm (Economy) Transmission TorqShift® 6-speed automatic with overdrive and tow/haul mode Wheelbase 138", 158", 168", 176", 178", 190", 208", 228", 242", 252" But either way, it should not be appreciably different than other units from the same model year.
