  2. FMCA Continental Tire Program question

    Just about always, the tire price is plus FET tax and all other taxes that apply for your area.
  3. 275/80R22.5 vs 11R22.5 tire sizes

    It's really not recommended to run two different tire sizes. the nose low looks might be just the way the body is hung. you can check frame heights with a tape measure to check if it's tires or body. you also might want to check your air bags. I would definitely would use what the manufacture recommends. Check with your local tire service writer and he can answer all your questions.
  4. Frig latch

    I just had mine repaired in Chandler, Az. The problem is a very common issue. There is a magnetic switch in the door, I think it was in the left lower door. What happens is the door shims at the lower hinge needs to be replaced to allow the magnet to align with the switch. I fought with mine for about a year. There are other issues that need to be addressed. I would call for a Norcold auth. repair service and have the entire frig inspected. One of the issues is over heating of the cooling unit and in some cases, it turned into a fire hazard. Not trying to scare you, but get it check out by a professional.
  5. New Mexico I-10 to San Jose, CA

    Depending on the time of day, you are going to be in heavy traffic starting in the Palm Springs area. I've lived in San Bernardino, Ca. since 1957 and the freeway congestion has gotten very bad. If you want to avoid heavy traffic, then you should jump up to I40 and travel west to Hwy. 58 in Barstow, Ca. That's where the 40 and I15 meet. Their will be a little traffic in Barstow, but nothing like I10. Take Hwy58 west to Hwy99 and go north. You can jump West on any highway and catch I5 north. Its a much nicer drive and no L.A. stress. Avoid I10 from Palm Springs at all costs.
  6. ?8 Point Torx Bits?

    I work for Oriellys part time and we stock those bits in So. California. Maybe your store does also.
  7. Our RVing Story

    Herman, we are planning on being in Gillette, Wy., not with the grandkids. My son and daughter in law live in Oklahoma and are renewing their vows in June, so we are going to take a 2 1/2 month trip to the rally. Hope to see you again up there.
  8. Our RVing Story

    How ya'll doing. My wife [Paula] and I stated camping as a family in 1972. We started out on the ground in sleeping bags, but that got pretty old fast. Then we started using our pick-up truck with an mattress in the back. Later that year we added a camper shell. In 1980, or so, we purchased a Four Star slide in camper. We thpight we were in heaven. It had a ice box and a fresh water tank. It did not have any waste holding tanks and we had to plan all our travel stops were there was a Ice House, so we could keep the ice box cold. That lasted for a couple of years. We had three kids so we moved up to a 28' Fireball fifth wheel trailer and used it until I broke the frame supports in the king pin area. We traded it off on a 30' Fleetwood Terry Resort 5er but only kept it for a year or so. It leaked really bad when it rained and the dealer could not repair it, so we traded it for a 32' foot Snowbird. We used it until 2015 when we got our first class a motorhome. It's a 2004 Holiday Rambler Endever, 38' with two slides. We are in our late 60's and plan on traveling a whole lot more now that we are both retired. traveling with our grandkids has been a blast. I can't wait until our great grandkids get old enough to travel with us. Well we are getting ready to head out to the western area Indio Rally. Hope to see some old friends and make some new ones. See everyone on the road. Safe Travels Rick & Paula Ammerman F442485
  9. Wash Wax All

    I have been using "The Solution" for quite a while. It's pretty awesome stuff. Bugs and road grime are no match
  10. First Motorhome!!

    Great looking rig. Hope you have a great time roaming this great country.
  11. RV Tire Recommendation

    Goodyear is the only tire company that makes a true rv tire these days. I have a set of Hancook on my coach. I've had real good performance from them.
  12. Ford V10- Adding Oil

    you can find the spout desertdeals69 is suggesting at O'riellys Auto Parts
  13. Flat Towing Versus Trailered

    I usually trailer when we (my wife and I) go boon docking. We do a lot of off roading, so when or if I break the toad, I need a way to get her home.
  14. Hello To All

    For all you snowbirds out there, Lake Havasu City, Az. runs a winter series from November thru March every year. Come on out and enjoy some local short track racing at its best.
  15. GM 454 Backfires

    If the backfiring only happens under a large load, like climbing a grade, and stops when he backs off the gas, its most likely fuel pressure related. (it's leaning out). If the backfires happening in the intake manifold, its low pressure/volume and if its happening in the exhaust, its most likely coil and/or plug wires. If all else fails, take it to the dealer. They are factory trained and have all the correct equipment to diagnose the issue. This is going to get real expensive if your just guessing what is wrong. Like I said in a previous post, I have 53 years experience in GM performance issues.
