  1. The winnebago 4x4, 4 seasons model appears to be new for 2018. Didn't know about that one. Is that the only one on the market this year? The Avion Azur looks to be better insulated. And although it is advertised as a 4 seasons RV, I couldn't find a definitive answer on whether or not the plumbing had a winter heated option.
  2. Hi Mark, I couldn't say for sure as to whether or not there are any true 4 season Class B motorhomes, but I'm guessing that due to the fact that the ones I've seen do not have a heated basement (or any basement for that matter), it would be difficult to protect the tanks and plumbing lines from freezing. Many Class A's have this feature as well as heated tanks. As well many Class A's have some sort of additional floor ducted heat system to keep the coach toasty while traveling from front to back also protecting additional plumbing lines within the living areas. In addition many Class A's have additional insulation to whether the seasons. So my answer to your question would be a no, likely no true 4 season Class B's.

  4. 1st MH Road Trip w/ mileage

    Although the KOA is nice, if you want to stay beach front, I would recommend that you check out Ocean Lakes. although at this late date they may be getting full. https://www.oceanlakes.com/ much nicer than the KOA...IMHO
  5. Buying a gas class A

    I have to agree with Phil. Dealer support is a huge in deciding what brand to buy. Further to this, manufacturer support is likely even more important. Between the trailers and MH's we have owned over the last 20 years, none have come without issues. What made the difference between them was warranty support. We are happy with our 2010 WB Suncruiser 37F gasser. What has made the biggest difference in drivability between it and previous gassers we have owned is the Workhorse engine and Allison transmission powertrain. A huge improvement on the previous Ford chassis we have owned. No more screaming up the hill!

  12. Air Pressure Doubler

    Although I also carry a compressor, I usually leave my tire changing needs to the roadside assistance crew....

    No issues with ours either.
  14. Women Driving their A Classes

    My wife Lori drives ours frequently. On long hauls we split up the day. I generally take the morning, her the afternoon. Lori was a school bus driver for years so not intimidated by large vehicles.
  15. Suggestions on best hose from holding tanks

    We actually bought two so that we could reach any sewer connection from 10 to 40 feet. When not in use you can compress the hoses and screw the storage caps on. Makes them easy to store and keeps any residual liquid or odors inside.

    I would go with the Camco 20ft Revolution Swivel RV Sewer Hose Kit. Available at Wal-Mart, Amazon, Camping World...
  17. Furnaces cause lights to flicker

    Just wondering, is it possible you have the coach battery disconect switch off? (Sometimes referred to as the salesman switch) If so you could be running the furnace, lights, everything 12 volt off your charger/ converter. Without the added resource of the storage batteries this could cause your lights to dim and furnace blowers to slow..

    Me too! Thanks for sharing the pictures.
  19. "Infield" Camping- NASCAR

    call their ticket office, they can likely find you a spot and will be happy to do so. also, when you say both races are sold out, did you mean the end of July race too?
  20. "Infield" Camping- NASCAR

    I usually make plans and reservations in December for the following season. Sometimes I'm too early so they put me on the call back list as soon as sales open up. Did You call the track ticket office directly? Usually the have a few spots open ...
  21. Any Canadian Benefits?

    Dan, I for one would really like to see the Michelin tire discount available to Canadian members. This would be next on my wish list. Thanks
  22. "Infield" Camping- NASCAR

    If camping in the infield it is Important to consider whether or not you want to party harty day and night, or enjoy the day and race but still get a good night's sleep. Depending on where you choose to park the experience will go from one extreme to another. We find that the cheaper the camping, the more extreme the partying. This tends to be true at most tracks. Pocono is a great track to camp at. We generally go for the RV preferred in the $350 range against the fence between turn 2 and 3.
  23. Seeking participants for new magazine feature

    Ken, the vote to allow towables was far from unanimous on every point. The posts above aren't about making you feel unwelcome rather are about concerned existing members feeling left out and sad and disheartened to see FMCA lose its founding focus. I fully agree with Richard's points and concerns

    I feel your pain...
  25. RV Friendly Gas Stations

    Almost all FlyingJ locations have RV islands that offer both gas and diesel. A few Pilot locations do too. We generally choose FJ when traveling in our 38 ft gasser. Download the very heloful :Big Truck Stops App" to view travel plazas near you or by state when planning your route. You can select a station to view services such as propane, RV islands, restaurants, etc.
