RE: Water leak

Lots of question to help you diagnose. Is your water pump on? It won't matter if you turn off city water if the pump is on you will still have pressure. Have you used the RV since winter? Start checking pipes in the bathroom and your outdoor kitchen. Even if you've never used them, pressured water will find it's way there. Pex is pretty resilient to cracks so I would check fittings on fixtures, the faucet housings, unions and connections etc. The dealer should certainly be willing to take a look at it. This is a brand new unit right?

RE: Leveling Jacks pro & con

Disagree. In my buying experience, the presence of jacks or not had no affect on the pricing. It's a total lost cost, only do so for your own personal usage, don't count on jacks adding resale. I have to agree with camperdave,I also found that on a used Class C the jacks did not add much to the asking price,maybe$2-300 if at all to the price of the RV, a small return for a $4000+ investment. I spent a lot of time looking and ended up with a Former Rental On the other hand on the Class A there was a bigger markup,seems that when a person is spending big bucks they want all the bells and whistles and are willing to pay for it. It seem that most Class A RVs have them and people are willing to pay extra for them. I hadn't considered that, maybe it's a Class A thing that affects the price more. I guess Camper Dave has a point. I should probably stick to Class A topics :-)

RE: Newmar Sold

I've never owned a Newmar but it was one of the brands I was looking closely at as we near Full timing status in the next year or so. I am curious now as to what this will mean. Newmar and Tiffin were at the top of my short list. I have heard so many mixed reviews about Winnie, I am not sure what to believe.

RE: Leveling Jacks pro & con

If you don't plan on keeping it forever and will eventually sell it, the jacks will add a lot more value and be more attractive to buyers than a MH without them. Disagree. In my buying experience, the presence of jacks or not had no affect on the pricing. It's a total lost cost, only do so for your own personal usage, don't count on jacks adding resale. Then we can agree to disagree. I had 2 Class A MH's of almost the same make and model. I bought the new one mainly because it had jacks and sold the one without jacks. Long story short, we ended up selling the new one too for a completely different MH. They both had similar miles, were pretty much identical. The one with jacks fetched $8k more than the one without. I only paid $4k to have them added when I bought it. A bank was involved in both transactions and they valued them differently almost solely on the jacks option. Nada will reflect a difference too. As far as fair market value and buyer preference - I can tell you I wouldn't buy a MH without them. Not only for convenience but for the value in resale that I personally experienced. I think more people care about them than don't. Identical MH's, one with jacks and one without are NOT the same value and fetch different prices respectively. I think they are pretty much standard equipment anymore due to buyer demand.

RE: Newmar Sold

More details please. Who bought them?

RE: Short MH's

The axis is on the E450 chassis which will handle differently than the F53. The E/F450 is traditionally the platform for class C's. Thor decided to make a small Class A on it. The Axis does have an independent front suspension though and that should help the ride. It will also have a lower center of gravity which should help pitch and roll.

OP never came back to the post. Curious what happened.

RE: Popping sounds from Winnebago

Are you sure it's the jacks and not the chassis suspension settling?

RE: Getting very frustrated with this site!

There are a few ways to get into the site. Some of the older links don't work as well. Try this one. I haven't had any issues since using this one.

RE: Towing

If you get into an accident while towing that much over your weighted limit your insurance company will probably tell you to get lost !! Granted, they may tell you to get lost, if they even have a clue as to weight being a factor or for maybe not wanting to renew your policy next time, but they will have to pay, regardless. "...but they will have to pay, regardless." I wouldn't be so sure about that. Have you ever read your contract/policy with your insurance carrier? Most people don't and that can be a GIANT mistake. You need to take a look at your contract/policy for its defined "exclusions" of coverage. You might look for the exclusion that states something to the effect of "bodily injury or property damage reasonably expected to arise out of an intentional act." Reasonably expected would include exceeding certified posted limits. You think that these insurance companies spend the time and money they do having 60 or so pages drawn up by their staff attorneys so they don't cover themselves? Think again. Unfortunately, Trumpet Player is correct. I work for insurance companies as an engineering consultant, and I can not tell you how many times I've seen claims turned down because of willful negligence on the insured. Al You mean like knowingly speeding or turning right on red? I think he means like knowingly being about 1,400 lbs over weight.

RE: apps

WAZE. Best gps app I've ever used and free. It's pretty good at finding things even with a partial name. It's not RV specific but in combination with google, I find it's the easiest GPS to use. It's real time road conditions because it's updated by other WAZE users constantly. You can report a hazard on the road, police, whatever and it shows up on the map real time for all other WAZE users. One caution, what WAZE is really good at - avoiding traffic, accidents, etc, can get you into trouble in an RV as it may route you to a small road etc. I also use a Garmin DEZl that knows my weight and height and consider this while being re-routed.

RE: Diminshed Value Claims

The only advice I can think of is to speak to a lawyer. He/she can advise you on how to proceed with your case. The problem with lawyers is that they usually end up costing you more than whatever you end up getting.

RE: Towing

My question is has anyone pulled a full size pickup with a 35 ft gas motor home I have a 1997 Fleetwood Bounder 34V with a Ford 460 engine and my tow limit is 3500 lbs my truck is 4900 lbs. I towed a 4,900 lb. pickup with a 35 ft. MH with a 460 motor and 4 speed transmission for a few years and never once had any problem on flat land or mountain. I was under weight on the scales for the combination. Towing 4 down does not put any weight on the hitch only on the pulling and what if any on the stopping. If the auxiliary braking system is properly adjusted it will take all of the towed weight stress off the hitch and MH. Actually it can be set to actually pull back on the MH when stopping thus aiding the MH braking. The three potential stress situations are pulling, stopping and sharp turning. I used a 10,00 lb. Blue Ox hitch and a Brake Buddy brake system for the tow. If you read the instructions on your hitch it is labeled for tongue weight. Such as you would have if towing a trailer. Not when towing 4 down. I went to my local DMV with the titles for my current MH and tow and they assured me that as long as I was not over the rated weight for the motorhome and not over the 10,000 tow weight I was in compliance with the law. Your state may advice is to ask the Department of Motor Vehicles in your area...they will tell you Truth and give you the Facts. Not sure what any of this has to do with the OP who is admittedly 1400 lbs over. You say you were underweight on the scales and he admits he's over. Comparing oranges to basketballs.

RE: tires

Just a tip - when posting a new thread you may want to name it something different than another thread you also started. Looks like you have duplicate threads going.

Or make it easy and pick up a wireless camera and any 12v hot and ground to the frame.

RE: Cant hook up a whole house generator

The builder may have left but the electrician is still around and they are bonded and the county should be able to answer questions as to why it passed inspections. If they can't answer that and agree it's wrong, I feel like the electrician can be made to fix it. We've been a little taxed with the hurricane but I expect to be able to call them on What did you find out when you called? Fighting the flu, it's going to be a few days. I'll post back once I get someone, get an appointment to have them come out, look at it etc. I expect this will take more than a day.

RE: dead 2015 axis 24.1 chassis

It would help to know what rv you have . Usually when this happens something has been wired up wrong or a wire has been left off . Look around the battery compartment to see if a wire has fallen down out of sight . This may be a small wire , not necessarily a cable . Did you take a picture or draw one ? Always take a picture several pictures are even better . Memory will not always work . The title for the post says it's an AXIS 24.1. To the OP - if you replaced the battery and nothing works, my guess is you didn't hook something up correctly. Hopefully you didn't hook the battery up backwards. Did you miss a ground?

RE: Towing

Are you asking if it's ok to tow a vehicle when you are knowingly 1400 lbs over? No, it isn't.
