  1. The wife and I had similar experience we had to pay for a tow out of our pocket , we couldnt call the assistance # because of bad connection and I turned in bills to them and they refuseto pay. Now i did have it towed to my home which was 147 miles and if they dont want to pay for the whole thing thats fine, but they should have payed for the cost that would have been to a shop. I will be done with them.
  2. The wife and I were on a trip after christmas and we had a headgasket blow on my safari 40' diesel pusher, we had made it 147 miles from home when it happened and we needed a tow. we tried to call the assistance number but we were in a bad area for cell phones , so a local tow truck company happen to see us broke down and stopped to check on us he was in his personal truck he told us he had a tow truck within 8 or 10 miles from us and he could tow it, I asked how much and I would really like to tow it to my home since im a mechanic myself, so he said he would tow it the 147 miles for $900 , I agreed and thought it was a fair price. It was getting late he towed to his yard for the night and even supplied power to keep our fridge going. The wife and I got in our toad and returned back home and he brought the coach the next morning and all was good. Now I know the Roadside Assistance is only going to pull you to the closest repair facility and I understand fully , I turned this in to them with copies of the bill as they ask and got a notice they turned me down. Now i think the $900 was a fair price ive heard of some charging this for just a short pull. But anyway pay half the bill or what ever it would have cost to pull 4 or 5 miles anything would have helped. Very disappointed and Im sure when mine expires I will not be renewing it , and I will tell others of this also.
  3. We found the same solution but put it in a rug Doctor machine with the upholstery att. And it did a real good job
  4. Hello everyone, the wife and I are new members here, seems like a great group, we are in our fifties and are empty nesters and really enjoy RVing. My wife and I both come from RVing families so it's in our blood just carring on the tradition I guess. We really enjoy going to the beach so if we can find a campground on the beach we are there. We bought a older Safari Serengeti that's in good shape and it fits our needs perfectly. After starting with a tent then pop ups and travel trailers and 5th wheels, we really like the coach I think it gives you a lot more freedom, anyways just wanted to say hello and proud to be a member of this fine group. Hope to see you soon.
  5. I have a 96 safari Sarengeti on a Magnum Chassis that has this braking system on it, that I am currently replacing brake lines because of corrosion from being run on salt roads and the line blew out on me last week and I drove another 200 miles with half the brakes working. But it is a Bosch Hydro Max system and the bendx name is affiliated some how maybe they are same company? But you can find the parts online you can buy the motor seperate if need be. Just google Bosch Hydro-Max and you shall find.
  6. Hello Everyone new here, but I have had this happen also when there is a bypass kit on the water heater and the valves are turned wrong way and my water was just circulating in the system?
