    Koni is the best and only a bit more than Bilstens.

    if you are near the west coast and can find Jack's tire and oil (they have many locations) they accept FMCA tire deals but can beat them. I just bought new drive tires and Uniroyal (a Michelin company) was my choice because of the price and am pleased, especially since I saved a ton over Michelin.
  3. Newmar and Tiffin if new. Monaco, Newmar or Tiffin if used. Nothing being made today has any attention to quality outside of Newmar and Tiffin unless you have a boatload of cash for a Prevost or Newell.
  4. yes it is radial. getting old I guess
  5. Looking at the goodyear G670R tires are radial tires. The front tires are Hankook AH 22 tires but don't say they are radials. Is there a problem with non radial on front and radial on back? The front tires are only one year old and came with the coach. 275/80 22.5
  6. Hidden Valley in Von Ormy is a great place to stay, it's just outside San Antonio and is quiet and easy access to the loops.

    Will be staying in Boise for the summer, there are a number of parks but would like some FMCA feedback on them.
  9. Did some figuring and I can pull out the cabinets on the drivers side which are against the existing TV and then I can fit a 40" and still be able to relocate the equipment that is in the existing cabinet.
  10. The spot for my front TV will not handle a 39" TV so somewhere 32 and 39 will fit. Can't find one. Anyone have experience with this and where I can find one? Looked on-line and nothing.
  11. Anyone used RV Decor in Yuma?
  12. Want to pull out the front TV and put in a larger LED up front but it will require wood work and fitting. Which shop would you recommend-- we are full-time so can travel from the Southwest eastward. 2004 Monaco Camelot 40 PDQ.
  13. When mine got stuck while extended I sprayed all the joints with penetrating oil and rapped lightly on the motor with a hammer and voila, it has worked fine ever since.
  14. Would like to stop along the way for a night since it is a long days drive and could be horrible considering the travel through L.A. also, what is a good RV park near the library?
  15. Need to be in LV for granddaughter's gymnastics competition so looking for recommendation for a nice RV park that won't break the bank. The ones I have seen on the internet seem to be parking lots around casino's. Are there better options?
  16. The steering does not lock when the key is left in but I am not sure if there is a voltage draw. Anyone pulling a Soul know?
  17. The only issue I have had with my Acme is that it is heavy for this old man so I had a swing jack added. Needed to visit a trailer fabrication shop to install it because the frame of the trailer is angle iron. No problem for the shop. Now it is easy to move around without having to lift the front.
  18. I need to stay close to Chicago and Naperville, Il to see my kids and grandkids. Slim pickings for RV spaces but found Big Rock, Il. They don't take reservations so pulling in with a 40' MH pulling a toad is dicy. I plan to arrive early on a Friday which should help. Anyone been there that can give me some info?
  19. How did you attach it to the frame? Do you have any pictures? I am using a furniture dolly that I roll under the front of the frame but the wheels are small.
  20. Anyone gotten a swing down dolly jack to save your back when moving the dolly? What did you get and how did you attach it to the dolly?
  21. Not that bad, I saw a post where the cost was over $2000 but I guess they did other things.
  22. Looking to buy a Class A DP and since I have never had one. I am curious about the 'extra' cost of maintenance compared to a gasser. Most notably is the 15,000 mile service interval, about how much should I budget for this service as a general rule?
