  1. What tire if price no concern

    If price is excluded in the decision making, what tire would you buy ? Michelin, Continental or Goodyear are the tires I have locally at reputable dealer. Roland
  2. Freightliner Oasis

    Is the difference in an Oasis shop worth driving an extra 50 miles? Are the techs more skilled on mh or is the difference the availability to camp at the shop the main thing? I have 82000 miles on my mh and only limited knowledge of previous service so I am going to get 90000 mile complete service now to bring everything up to date.
  3. Buying a gas class A

    I know most of us are diesel mh owners but if you were going to buy a class A gasser which would be the brand you would chose and why. thanks, Roland
  4. Freightliner Oasis

    Do you really feel that a trip to Gaffney is necessary? Surely there are other qualified service centers more locally located. I have read good reports on the oasis FL dealer in Kalamazoo Mi., this is only 100 miles from me. Hate to think South Carolina is the only place.
  5. Hanging out at Marfa Lights

    Punsxy they weren’t there 1 month ago when we were there either. A Texas tall tale or mystery! Roland
  6. Buying a gas class A

    While the price of a new gas mh is attractive, the drivability and weight limits make it a no for me. I plan to plug along with my present DP until I win the lottery! Buying another used DP doesn’t hold any attraction to me now, who knows what the future will bring.
  7. Captains chair

    Anyone replaced their captains chair in a class a? Did you do it yourself or have it done? Anyone used the air type chair semi trucks have?
  8. Routine yearly maintence

    If I take my my with a c-7 cat engine to a Freightliner shop what routine yearly maintence should I expect? Oil change, chassis lube, what filters? I have 82000 miles on coach, is there any other service I should be doing?
  9. Routine yearly maintence

    Would it be time for transmission service?
  10. Routine yearly maintence

    I am not original owner and have no service records.
  11. I know Texas BBQ is good but Memphis does a pretty good job. Try Central BBQ when you are there. Pine wood? We use hickory.
  12. Captains chair

    Thanks for the info. I am going to contact the Freightliner shop near me.
  13. Captains chair

    Thanks Bill.
  14. Captains chair

    Carl, Did they have seats in stock or did you order? Did the shop do the install for you? I wonder if someone in Indiana could do this? We are only a few hours away from Elkhart. Roland
  15. What tire if price no concern

    After talking to a few dealers I find I am unable to get a Continental dealer that accepts the FMCA program within 100 miles of me. I am going to go with the Michelin tires and be done with it. Thank you all for your advice. Roland
  16. Mainline Truck and RV repair

    Anyone have experience with this firm for steering and alignment work?
  17. Mainline Truck and RV repair

    Carl, They are near Cleveland Ohio. They are a certified dealer and installer of Henderson Alignment products. Thinking of having them do a ride analysis after I get new tires, also an all wheel alignment. The Freightliner shop near me is reluctant to touch steering gear. I may not need anything other than alignment but I want it checked. With my wife’s health issues we have decided to keep this coach and fix it so that it is as comfortable as we can make it. I am going to check into new drivers and passengers seats also. The padding is starting to wear out in the current chairs. Roland
  18. Pets and Rallys

    Do most of you bring your pet along to big rallys or is it best to leave them home? Our Jack Russell loves to travel but if left alone to long she tends to bark.
  19. Mixing tire brands

    I need to get New back tires and am thinking of getting a different brand from steer tires. Currently have Firestone steer tires which are 2 years old, they have done well for me but are a stiff tire with a harder ride. Would like to put them on one side of duals in rear and other side and steer with new tires of different brand. Will this cause a problem? Roland
  20. Fiver Cost/ Discounts

    Do fivers have a similar discount from retail price as class A motorhomes? What brands (manufacturers) of fivers are considered better?
  21. Mixing tire brands

    I am comparing the hardness of ride to previous Michelin tires. Yes I have weighed my coach and have the correct air pressure. Reducing the air pressure 10-15# would under inflate the tires, not a safe situation. The Firestone tire has a thicker sidewall according to dealer which gives a stiffer ride. thanks all for thoughts, I will follow up and let you know what I do for replacement.
  22. Mixing tire brands

    Thanks Brett, so would you leave the Firestones on the front or buy a second pair and put them on rear if the current Firestones are not worn to far?
  23. Dish vs Streaming

    I currently have a carry out dish and use dish network service. I am wondering if ota and some form of streaming would be better. With dish you have to buy larger package to get any usable channels and then we don't use several of the channels. I know streaming isn't perfect but would like input from current users and how they use it.

  25. Fuel stop Tx rt 90

    Are there diesel fuel stops on Tx 90? Looking on map doesn’t seem to be any.
