  1. I ended up at a Goodyear Commercial tire outlet and purchased replacement Goodyear 295 80R 22.5 G670 RV replacement's. They were really decent people as I ended up only having to replace the tag ties. They measured the other 6 tires I have and they said I would be good for another 4-5000 miles.
  2. That is the sad side of electronic engine control. You have a motorhome that is 20 years old and over the years you can get corrosion in any number of places. Does the engine sound ok when it is not in limp mode. Is the engine oil level were it is supposed to be , does your dash indicator show engine oil pressure? This does sound like a possibility of a defective sensor that only indicates itself when it wants to. How many miles do you have on this engine? I was an engine development engineer at Ford for 37 years and electronic engine control can be very frustrating. Obviously, the newer electronics have been vastly improved. Did you know that Ford has stopped producing the V 10 engine. They have come out with a pushrod replacement called the "Godzilla." It produces more torque and horsepower and is cheaper to produce for Ford going back to old technology. There are at least 3-4 versions of this new engine and each version produces different power levels. Should make a difference in the gas powered RV Industry and they are now available and in production.
  3. Most tire dealers do not deal with the larger RV tires, have to go to a commercial tire location. I'm disappointed at the FMCA Tire Discount Program as it seems to not work very well at all.
  4. Well, I tried both recommended location's for Hankook RV tires, Pomp's and Meekhof and neither one deals with Hankook tires and these are the recommended dealers from Hankook. They also do not get involved with the FMCA tire discount program.
  5. Looking to replace my RV tires under the FMCA replacement program. Does anyone know of an tire dealer that carries RV tires in SE Michigan?
  6. I never heard of Toyo tires and they are not listed in the FMCA offerings. I have had at least 3 sets of Goodyear RV tires and have not seen any unusual wear pattern on them.
  7. Thinking about some new tires for my Holiday Rambler. I have 295 80 R22.5 Good Year tires now. Does anyone have any experience with Hankook Tires as they are a lot cheaper than Michelin.
  8. Safeco through FMCA was $2359 for a one year renewal with no claims or accidents. Priced AAA of Michigan and they quoted me $1650 for one year coverage. Canceled Safeco and went with AAA of Michigan.
  9. I have been talking to FMCA RV insurance all morning. The reason I was given is that Michigan's lawmakers has required some additional charges this year and this is what caused my Safeco insurance premium to go up .Another one of them was losses in Michigan, at least that is what I was told. FMCA priced Progressive, Foremost and several other insurance companies, but Safeco remains the least expensive even with the increase.
  10. Herman - that was a typing error on my part, it was $1610 the first year and my RV insurance is through FMCA RV insurance. But, I guarantee I will price others now as this has gotten ridiculous.
  11. Just received my renewal notice from Safeco insurance for our Holiday Rambler and it went up dramatically again. We started at $1610. went to $1910 last year and now the renewal this year is $2359. All of this with no claims and a perfect driving record. Anyone else seeing these kinds of increases?
  12. According to Michigan Law, a motorhome in Michigan is licensed at the original sales price, so if your motorhome is 10 years or older, you get screwed for license plate fees as the fee is based on the original value of the motorhome. Or in other words you are going to get screwed.
  13. Does anyone have any experience with any of the tire pressure systems listed in the October 2019 of Family RVing? Tire Minder seems to have the most variety. A new Tire Minder is due out next month shown as a TireMinder A1A-S.
  14. I have some waterborne ploy and I will try that next. I have sanded the area that turned white already so I cannot take a picture of it. Only have sporadic chances to work on it now as we are attending the FMCA Glamarama event in Allegan, Michigan. But, when I find something that works I will post a picture.
  15. I have a 2009 HR Scepter and have some interior wood that needed touching up. I have the optional cherry wood interior and when I applied some Minwax wiping polyurethane to the wood surface it turned white when dry. Does anyone know what will work. I'm not the original owner so I don't know what the wood is finished with. But it is a gloss finish and I sanded it down some but when dry the wiping poly turned white. Any recommendations.
