RE: DIY-who's tackled Foggy Glass repair?

The best location for window repair in country is in Vancouver, WA - Peninsula Glass / Motion Windows / where they can make completely new windows if you want to move that divider bar up out of your line of sight. There website doesn't mention cleaning and resealing windows but I'm sure they'll do that for you - just call them first. I absolutely agree with this opinion. We went to Peninsula originally because they make custom replacement window screens. While talking to them they said they could fix our fogged windows. In the end, we went with all new windows as most of ours were fogged. What sold us on new windows was several items. 1. They got rid of the divider bar towards the top of my driver's window that was always in my sight. 2. On the passengers window which was an up/down slider, the window break was always in the DWs line of sight. 3. We didn't like the escape windows in the rear bedroom where as the window was hinged and had to be pushed out while trying to exit through it. We had them install large sliding windows like in the living area of the DP. Better airflow besides being easier to escape through. 4. And last, all of the new windows have a reflective tinting. This both cuts down on the sun heat entering the DP and it blocks peoples view into the DP. We went there one day so they could take measurements and build a couple of templates. Came back a few days later and in eight hours they replaced all of the windows. They do have 30 amp plug-ins if you want to arrive the night before. I think they had a three or five year warranty on the windows, but Mike said if there's ever a problem, bring it back and they'll fix it anyways. Great product and service. Bill

RE: Fuel economy

Stay around 62 to 65 mph and DON'T FILL UP AT TRUCK STOPS..... Truck stops are for truck driver's who's company either gets a discount off of the pump / advertised price when they're billed and for truck drivers for whom time is money. If you'd use Gas Buddy you can always find a station near a truck stop that's 15 cents to 25 cents per gallon cheaper. And Gas Buddy will give you an aerial view of the station to make sure you can get in and out. I just put two new Michelin on the front of DP - I figured they were paid for by not filling up at truck stops. Bill

RE: OTA television while traveling?

We probably receive OTA TV 85% or more of the time. It's enough that we haven't bothered to upgrade our satellite TV receiver or want to pay the monthly fees. Bill

RE: Removing Silicone caulk

Test them in a out-of-sight spot first. I found out that if you leave them on too long, they'll also take off the paint. I didn't find any of them that worked really well - lot of scraping with a sharp plastic putty knife worked the best. Bill

RE: Excellent service from Roadmaster

You are talking Roadmaster? Stowmaster towbar? Ah yes, my mistake, it was Roadmaster. Bill

Excellent service from Roadmaster

Having just been in Vancouver, WA with a little time to kill, we took our Roadmaster tow bar to them to be serviced. This did not include the parts attached to the Jeep. They have a flat rate of $75 (plus tax if I remember right?) to inspect and service it. I was pleasantly surprised when we got it back and they had replaced every piece of the tow bar except for the two square arms with the serial number on them for that $75. Delivered it to them in the morning and we had it back that night. Couldn't beat the service or the price. Bill

RE: Possibly upgrading from TT to Class A

Since you mentioned the roof satellite receiver for TV, be aware that unless the current owners have upgraded it someplace along the line that it will probably not be usable without replacing the whole unit as we found out. But, it seems that we find acceptable OTA TV about 97% of the time and therefore get along fine without satellite TV. Bill

RE: Miles per day.

300 to 350, will push 450 if I need to, but not often. I'm retired, I don't like to get up early and I don't like to set up in the dark at night. Bill

RE: Replacing all my bulbs with LEDs

Amazon and eBay. Replace your tail lights while at it with brighter LED bulbs drawing less power. Bill

RE: What did you do to your Class A MH today???

Finally installed true battery disconnect switches on both the starting and house batteries. It's so nice not to have to disconnect the battery cables now when putting it into storage. Also changed the starting batteries as they were over seven years old and they were having problems starting the DP when it was down below freezing. The Interstate distributors had 20% or 25% off for veterans. Bill

RE: Fleetwood Excursion 39S

Keep looking for one, they're better than most DPs. We're from Alaska and bought ours in Colorado sight unseen but we got about a hundred pictures checking on all of the small details. Flew to CO, did the inspection and drove off in it. The seller even filled the fuel and put a case of water in the cold fridge.

RE: Fleetwood Excursion 39S

She's probably trying to get what she owes on it. I haven't been checked lately how many hours are on our gen set, probably around 1000. Great generator, never any problems with it. A friend had the dash air controls go bad, it was over $500 for it. I just put two new Michelins on the front and it was over $1300 without taxes.

RE: Fleetwood Excursion 39S

They got rid of the geaseable fan hub because 90% of the people never greased them resulting in a lot of failures so they installed a permanently greased hub bearing. Of course they'll eventually fail but MH people don't put enough milage on them to worry about it. If you buy it, I can give you a lot of pointers on this particular DP.

RE: Fleetwood Excursion 39S

Here's something you need to check if you buy it. There were a couple of years there that the white plastic antifreeze tanks were made of bad plastic that didn't hold up the e gine heat well. They developed a lot of spider heat cracks and then started leaking. The tank is located on top of the right corner of the radiator. If it looks new then it's probably been changed. If it has cracks, change it before you load the closet as everything has to be unloaded from it. If you have to change it, I'd recommend having Freightliner flush the cooling system and install their long life coolant good for 6 years or 600,000 miles.

RE: Fleetwood Excursion 39S

It's definitely a Freightliner. On the wall to the left of the driver's seat should be a large white tag on the wall. It should include Freightliner's VIN number. It may be hidden behind the curtain. I've been watching my roof as I plan to install solar next year. I didn't want to have to take the solar off to install a new roof. Mine is in good shape and should have a number of years left on it.
