    Gas or Diesel

    It’s all relevant! Nobody would build a 36,000 lb (not GVWR)Motorhome on a F53 gas chassis. Beyond the engine fuel type, overall structure, brakes and suspension make up a lot also. But again it’s personal preference and how many headaches, maintenance etc that play a huge role in the decision. My old class C with the V10 would have ran circles around our DP and was pennies to maintain vs rolls of hundreds! My MPG’s were less with the gas coach, the ride quality, couldn’t hold a candle to the DP and overall comfort and safety are much better in the DP (ours anyway). for the 3 - 5 times a year we run the DP, we should be in a gas coach and as soon as we sell the DP we will switch back. To be honest I’ll be happier with spending less on maintenance and not worrying about very expensive potential problems. The part I will not like, hitting bumps and cabinets breaking off the walls, interior noise and difference in comfort will take some getting use to.
  2. Class C gasser. Something with a solid bunk shell, not multiple pieces. V10. Tioga seems to have that one piece bunk shell and I saw a Thor product with the same. Preferably NO SLIDES!
  3. No. Seeking used coach to trade ours on.
  4. YES, you can call Cummins with your engine serial number and see if you have the problematic pump. If so they can recommend a place to have it swapped with the updated design
  5. You are around 100 miles from us. We are on the east coast of Florida.
  6. Pool. sitting on the patio now watching TV
  7. I was swimming yesterday at 10:00 am. Beautiful here!!
  8. , a wee bit scratchy also. I don’t remember the name, but it’s the brand without the paper tube in the center. When I did the breakdown test it dissolved more than the others
  9. 😂, I think they could have found a bigger box if they applied themselves
  10. Have you tried the east coast? The weather this far south is also much warmer than where you currently are. https://www.treasurecoastrv.com
  11. Ditto, when I open Safari I start to type “Co” and it pre loads and opens
  12. We have one, use it on every trip. We need to upgrade, ours is OLD. I bought the same one Puff recommended on a post 7+ years ago on here.
  13. Does it come with a generator? If not how do you run the AC?
  14. https://www.autometer.com/gauge-types/?gclid=Cj0KCQiAkNiMBhCxARIsAIDDKNWMyOvOUVXZ0GxR17buj9uUTrjr_F7akygiIKlXkxSiPU7oLXghwHwaAs20EALw_wcB&gclsrc=aw.ds the factory gauges were made by VDO. That link is below. You can purchase one from Autometer. The link above, scroll down and contact them. I know they make custom gauges to fit your needs. https://www.vdo-gauges.com
  15. I wouldn’t let anyone touch our coach but this business. And the specialize in Monaco products. http://talinrv.com
  16. Interesting topic. 7 years ago we bought our DP. It had scratches on it and I took it to a local body shop for repair. The owner asked me if he needed to plug it in to protect my batteries. I told him no, they are switched off. When I asked him how he knew that his response was shocking. He has classic cars that sit. Over time they will ruin the battery if not plugged in, I assumed an RV would have similar issues if not plugged in. Needless to say I was impressed.

    Tow dolly

    I believe it varies between states, best bet is to call your agent. When we had a dolly it fell under the vehicle towing it. That was quite a while ago and could have changed by now.
  18. Roland, all I’ve ever done; Pump RV antifreeze through the system until I see pink on the hot and cold sides including washer. Full tank of fuel prior to parking. leave coach plugged into electric. Add Fresh cab and Peppermint oil soaked cotton balls in the interior and basement (to keep mice away). I never started the engine in winter therefore I could care less if the fuel gelled. When we would get a warm spell (upper 30’s to 40’s) I would run my Aquahot on diesel and run the generator under load, each for an hour once a month.
  19. Great recommendation! Especially on a vehicle that doesn’t get tire rotations. The rear inner will always be rear inners.
  20. Mike, I use sold stainless steel extensions that clear the outer wheel from the inner. Then I have the rubber grommets the press into the wheel hole and hold the stem to keep it stable. I have never had a leak issue. When I pull them off I replace the o-ring inside to make sure it’s a fresh seal.
