    Gas or Diesel

    I have been coast to coast different times and not had any problem thus far crossing mountains with a 39 ft.3 slides, V10, 362 HP towing a Jeep. The underpowered diesels have a problem with the steep grades. I own a diesel F350 4X4 CC DRW therefore I am familiar with diesels. I would not consider any diesel motorhome 32 ft or over unless it had more than 350 HP and 6 speed Trans.

    22.5 tires

    I run Michelin XRV and they have been excellent. Quite and smooth ride. On second set. Dealer paid me $100.00 per old tire trade in when installing new ones. They were only 8 years old. They are made in Canada. I called Michelin and paid them their cost and paid the dealer labor for installation.
  3. I Pulled up to the toll booth on the WVA turnpike and the attendant lady asked me if I was towing a Jeep. I replied; "This is a Jeep pusher." I could tell by her scowl that she was not amused.
  4. I have had Good Sam Platinum Plus for years and am satisfied with their service. They cover all my vehicles including the ones I own, rent, borrow, or ride in, including anything towed; for all my family. They do have cheaper plans for those who are budget conscience.
  5. I have used a Blue Ox 10,000 lb. tow bar and a Brake Buddy for many years and both still give great service. Easy and quick to connect or disconnect and to change to another vehicle when desired. It also is proportional braking.

  7. i only need to run dash air during travel in current coach. I had a Coachmen years ago and had to run roof air to keep cool. There was no insulation behind the overhead cabinets over the cockpit area. Probably little to none elsewhere.
  8. Another thing we can rejoice over on Independence day is the current administration is announcing on TV that a pack of hotdogs will cost $0.15 less this year than last. Did not choose to comment on the price of 3/4 plywood that I paid $100.00 (169% increase) a sheet for a holiday bathroom remodel project. Or the 49% increase in fuel to go pick it up. Oh, well I suppose if I eat enough hotdogs it will all even out.
  9. Your odds of winning are better in Vegas.
  10. I have a forum and the only way to change an ID name is by the Admin. Other profile information can be changed by the member.
  11. For years I have avoided salt in my food. We cook without salt and if someone wants salt they must add it. I also avoid sugar. I have gained a taste for salt free steaks and other meats and vegetables. In fact I like my meats without all the added flavors that do not taste like the real food I am eating. No Salt and No Sugar has been the diet of millions for generations. One must acquire a taste for them. However when dining out it is impossible to find dishes that are salt free. I also drink my coffee plain black and caffeine free. Taste is acquired. One can train their taste for healthy foods or otherwise.
  12. Several of the British cars had positive ground. I owned an Austin Healey with positive ground. Took some engineering to make a negative ground shortwave radio work in it.
  13. Good decision . Gives everyone the option to read and that is what a RV forum should be. It also encourages non-members to join if they have something to share or questions they need help with..
