RE: Towing weight limit

I had a 2007 39' Discovery, hitch was 10,000 lbs....I am sure the frame is the same, just update the hitch and you should be good. This is a valid point. Just because the motorhome has a 5k hitch does not mean it can ONLY have a 5k hitch. Manufacturers don't always install the beefiest hitch possible.

RE: Towing weight limit

Get a 10k hitch installed. there may be more to it than just changing the hitch. for one the brakes on your MH are engineered for the GVWR of the MH, not the MH plus the toad. if you decide to do this please consult with a professional who can properly advise you. Don't toads and trailers have their own brake systems and as a result do not use any of the towing vehicle brake capacity?

RE: Liquid Springs-Tiffin factory installed option now

At the Tampa show, Liquid Spring told me they would install it on just about anything for $10,500. So, I guess you could say it's and "option" on most motor homes. Did anybody take a test drive in the Liquid Spring Tiffin demo vehicle they had in Tampa? Opinions?

RE: SAFETY WARNING FOR TOADS

Well, I'm not sure the OP was actually looking for a lot of speculative guessing as to the cause of the problem. Seems to me the original point was to warn folks to be aware of the possibilities and inspect your rig on a regular basis. There are probably dozens if not hundreds of things that could have caused or contributed to the crack. Things break. The point is that we should all crawl under our rigs and look for things that "ain't" right from time to time.

RE: Prevost Bus or Newmar King Air

Something I've heard but don't know for a fact. If you are looking at Prevost conversions be aware that not all use Prevost manufactured slides. I've been told you will have to get slides serviced elsewhere as Prevost service centers will not attempt to repair any non-Prevost slide problems. I was told that by a salesman so take it for what it's worth. :)

RE: Onan generator shuts off

Do you really have a refrigerator that REQUIRES 115 vac to operate ? If so, that's not a very good arrangement. Most all manufacturers have gone to residential refers in at least part of their lineup. Larger and less likely to burst into flames. However, most of them also provide an inverter and enough extra batteries to power the refer. In that configuration there is no need to run the generator to operate the refer. I don't know what kind of set up the OP has. You would be pretty hard pressed to find a new DP these days with a propane refer and a good many gas motorhomes now come with residential refers. We could run the refrigerator on propane, but what if we want to run the roof top A/C? Of course you need to run the generator if you need to operate the A/C. However, you stated in post #1 that you were running the generator only to operate the refer. I assumed you had a refer that would not operate on propane since that would make a lot more sense than running the generator. So, I was just going by what you said.

RE: Travel on I-24 through Nashville

But the Titans don't play at 9:00AM on Sunday. You shouldn't have any problem going thru town at that time of day regardless of which route you take. Now if there's a wreck somewhere then all bets are off but who can predict those.
