  1. Juist seeing this ... were doing fine. Got a new camping partner sense this post. Actually 2 new camping partners .
  2. Best move i could have ever made. now almost 5 months in and still happy with my 12v residential. if you get one, i wouldn't do 120 it is much more efficient on 12v.
  3. ill go as far as say its closer to 90% how many older saints miss kids and have dogs ... and how many people under 60 own coaches, not many. but 75 is a safe number thats for sure
  4. And even Better when you have cold ice cream when she connects with one of the pots and pans.
  5. October of this year I had finally had enough. I said goodbye to that norcold 1200, drove 547 miles to Indiana, I believe the town was Shipshewana, and had some very righteous religious fellas put in a 12 V residential. They reworked my cabinets in my carpentry, moved my central vacuum, and this was the result, I’m much happier, Keon. And for the record no the refrigerator didn’t make me happy, the wife not yelling at me anymore about not having ice cream made me happy.
  6. So my irritation isn’t with the generator per se it’s more so with what I’ve been noticing. I’m not sure whether the previous owner of this coach put his hands on it like he did some other stuff but the oil drain plug seems to be stuck. The last couple of oil changes I just sucked the oil out with a pump which did not present a huge issue however, does anybody know a trick to getting this plug out or has anybody ever experienced this issue? I would like to just replace the plug and use it for what it is but if it’s gonna be that much of a headache I’m just gonna leave it like it is in pump it out from the top.
  7. One of the things I did to our Honda, when they stole our catalytic converter in Connecticut. The new one was outfitted with razor blades that I JB welded to the top of it. Now it doesn’t sound like that would do much, however, when they go to reach their hand up there to pull that rascal down, they’ll think twice about doing it again the next time. And the blood trail alone Might lead us to the crook.
  8. The body is in immaculate condition, and the interior, I got some carpet maintenance to do but other than that she is a perfect coachThe body is in immaculate condition, and the interior, I got some carpet maintenance to do but other than that she is a perfect coach
  9. So to bring in conclusion to this post, we ended up getting a Discovery with the rooftop air conditioning and two heat pumps as well. I wasn’t afraid of the basement air. I was more afraid of the support. The discovery seems to have an overwhelming amount of support and I think that was more important for me. Andy and she liked the discovery over the sport Coach for space, and both of us liked the discovery over the meridian. Although the meridian drove like a dream, the layout just was not what we were looking for.
  10. You know, funny, you mention it, I asked her about that, and Toi politely told me that she was not Mary Poppins I needed to invest in a table! Nevertheless, it was definitely a good idea, and worth a shot.
  11. Coming from a gas coach I always had a table in the front where I can put stuff on. Now that I have gone to the Darkside, I lost my table. For you diesel guys, what do you put up front for the driver to sit is oversize coffee mug on?
  12. Herman is absolutely correct, you gotta check all of those things first, because putting Sumo’s brings on it and having bad bearings bushings and other things does nothing but waste your money and waste your time. There is no fix for preventative maintenance when it comes to bushings and bearings. Also, while you’re under there, check those king pins and make sure they are good, I would also install centrifugal rings on your front and rear axles, but at minimum your front so
  13. It depends on who you talk to. Me personally, if I have a breakdown, I want somebody coming out to me within 45 minutes to an hour not seven hours later so I prefer not to have roadside assistance and rip out cash on my credit card. Everybody is not in that boat, some people can only afford to pay roadside assistance and then have to wait for them to come out, but that doesn’t necessarily make them wrong. It’s just personal opinion and preference. Is it a waste of money, no, are there other options absolutely!
  14. And 90° weather my rooftops struggle a bit too. Thank you so I just try to keep it at a modest temperature. This is good information. Thank you.
  15. Folks, I’m in a real pickle. I thought my issue was going to be finding a Coach that did not have a lien against it that was gonna be easy to transfer, but my situation has gotten worse. Decided to jump the broom again and she’s a newbie. The coach that I really want I cannot get a floor plan that will work for two people living in it full-time so I kind of have to go off the beaten path and get something that will work full-time until we buy a house in a few years. Because of that I’m having to have an open mind to getting something different than what I’m used to. In my infinite wisdom, I allowed her to pick coaches with me and she picked a Coach that has a basement air conditioning unit. I’ve never owned one before, and I am just curious, are they worth the hype. My major concern is maintenance and cooling ability. From what I understand it’s one unit not to separate ones and the coach is 40 feet long. What say ye?
  16. Ummm .... I probably would fire the guy that had the kahunas to even tell you that. Customer service has gone to the wolves!
  17. Toi and I will be moving into the "new to us" coach as soon as we find one in the next year or so. Anyone got an suggestions on how to share the space with someone else with out throwing each other out a window? Here is our challenges 1. She got too Much Stuff 2. I got my stuff which I wanna keep 3. Storage is expensive but not out of the question 4. What would you buy new and NOT take from the old coach?
  18. HEY JOE!!! Where can I grab one of those tools, Toi and I are in the market again and I will surly need one
  19. I run these lights when i have a car on a dolly. They have a delay which is expected with wireless anything however, they work.
  20. Cant Make Gillette - I am punching the 9-5 Clock for the first time in a LOOOONNNNGGGGGG time trying to get somethings in order.
  21. Ok. I’m going to be due for tires on the coach as well so I’m probably gonna buy all of them at the same time. You’ve given me some options to look at thank you. glad to see your doing well.
