  1. Michelin and tire seminars have told me that only wash the tires with mild carwash soap and that is it. No spray or wipe on "protectant". The brown is the oil protection coming to the surface of the tire and will throughout the life of the tire. i also cover if staying for an extended time and park on placemats. The best thing for a tire is to drive and exercise the tire to keep them supple and the oils moving inside to the outside. I try not to stay in one place more than a month. It is better for the tires and coach.

  2. What about the take offs? Is there any value as trailer tires or are the tires disposed with and a fee for that? I currently have 275/80R22.5 XZA3 that are 7 years and 4 months old. I'm studying, thinking of getting tires at Love's Truck Stop in Ontario, Or if possible.

  3. Towing Service tows whenever necessary, right? Once a year? I have been towed twice in about a week time at over 100 miles each time. Coach-Net has been good to me except the second rep on the phone was not as knowledgeable as the previous rep. So far I am a fan.


    To answer the original question, yes they would cover the tow. This is a one-time service, I think once a year.

  4. We recently completed a two-day driving course from **** Reed's RV Driving School. If you want to learn in your RV then this course is for you. No classroom, just you in your RV with the instructor. I was amazed at what I and my wife learned with the 12-hour, two-day, two-person class. We have RVed for many, many years and last year we got a Class A motorhome. Our skill and confidence have really now added to the enjoyment of our motorhome. I believe every couple or single owner should take this or some driving hands-on class like this.

    currently in Quartzsite, Az.

  5. Sounds like you need a portable "Campsite Reserved" sign.

    With the price of chairs today I behooves one to put their name on the chair in

    permanent marker or with an engraver. Make believe your a movie star. :rolleyes:

    Chairs may look the same but they have different heights for the seat and back, and the weight

    capacity which is important if a guest should decide to drop by for a drink.

    I passed up on some chairs and a recliner at Quartzsite that I regret - so I am still looking for

    the one that fits me just right.

    I will be bringing my engraver with me next time but don't think it will help a lot. I would have to see the chair again and then the engraving. Funny but we do have a "Campsite Reserved" sign and thought the chair would work okay. Live and learn.

    We will also be going to Quartzsite next year. Probably be looking in the big tent for some special chairs.

  6. This wasn't the store I saw them in, but is this chair what you are looking for?

    Coleman also makes one.

    Ahhhhhh! The little man popped out! ACADEMY (A sports store here in Texas ad other fine Southern states) academy.com and search on directors chair

    Close, but it looks like the style chair is the director style. It seems like the side table would flip up over the lap and could be used with a computer. I wished I would have bought 2 of them but had a price around $100. We have since bought 2 chairs, recliners, from CampingWorld. They are very comfortable but still we will be looking for a couple of director chairs. Maybe at another FMCA Convention. We bought: https://www.campingworld.com/shopping/item/...erracotta/37560 .

  7. What are your favorite folding chairs? We are looking for two new chairs because one of ours was stolen while we left it to save a parking place.

    At the West is Best Rally in Albany, Oregon, I kind of liked the folding chairs that had a solid flip-up table on the side or over your legs when sitting. I would like to know who the suppliers were, if anyone knows. They don't fold as compact as what we now have, but they may be more useful. Just wondering what motorhomers' favorite chairs are.
