RE: UPDATED: Arizona (not Nevada) roads question

last week I traveled I 40 east in Arizona and the road was terrible. I am a motorhome towing. Next week I have to travel it again. Can anyone tell me if I 10 would be better? I could take that and connect back to I 40 via I 25 later. Does I 40 get better after Arizona? .Thoughts? thx We drove 10 to Texas back in June, road wasn’t too bad but getting there via 93 from kingman was horrible, much much worse than 40. My opinion FWIW.

Brake controller for my diesel pusher

Would the prodigy wireless brake controller be a good choice for the electric brakes on my trailer? Looks like the right choice to me, but I am a novice at this

Traveling From Kingman, az to near San Antonio, tx

We want to go back to spring branch which is north of San Antonio, Texas for thanksgiving. We went there this summer taking 93 south to Phoenix and I-10 east. 93 is one of the worst roads ever driven on and I-10 was long and lonely. I was thinking about taking 40 east to Albuquerque and 25 south to 10, unless there is another route toward San Antonio. Any suggestions from you guys that travel all the time Merrill

RE: Reno/sparks, Nevada service center

The service manager at the Sparks store, denied that it could have happened there, but Corporate has told me, they will pay for the repair. Fat fingers, what can I say

RE: Reno/sparks, Nevada service center

Got the motor home back yesterday afternoon, and this morning discovered a deep gash in the fiberglass just past the slide out on the driver side rear. Sent pictures to service guy that answered the phone this morning. He said he would pass it to the manager on Monday, we’ll see. $589.00 to diagnose and tell me system was out of Freon, which I already knew before I took it in

Reno/sparks, Nevada service center

For anyone with a diesel Motorhome, if you are ever in the Reno/Sparks area of northern Nevada and need maintenance, I do not recommend Velocity Truck Center, the Freightliner dealer in Sparks. I don’t have a comfortable feeling with their Motorhome section. My fleetwood discovery is a freightliner chassis and has a bad dash air compressor. I took it in yesterday morn for my appointment at 0900 and they still have it. May change my opinion after I get the bill, but probably not. Rocky Mountain Cummins is a much friendly place for service

RE: Towing weight limit

I am trying to find a toyhauler and they all come in at 6-7000 pounds with matching tongue weights. That would be an enclosed trailer ? Unless you need something HUGE, I don't think an aluminum one would be anywhere near that heavy. Of course, part of that might be the load; what are you needing to carry ?? We still have 11 kids/disabled adults at home and I am trying to come up with a solution to avoid having to setup/tear down tents when we go camping,. We carry the additional stuff for all of us and sleeping for 6-8. I am seriously thinking about a cargo trailer conversion to a bunkhouse. This would give us the extra bed space and cargo space and allow me to stay under the 5000 pound limit.

RE: Towing weight limit

Thank you all for your input, I have found a toyhauler that could meet our needs and is under 4000 pounds. Will update . Thanks

Towing weight limit

I have a 37 foot 2001 fleet wood discovery with the 325 CAT engine. The manual states that the hitch will handle 5000 pounds max with 500 pounds tongue weight. I am trying to find a toyhauler and they all come in at 6-7000 pounds with matching tongue weights. My question is will I damage something if I am over the limit by a couple hundred pounds on the tongue at 6-7000 pounds

RE: Need Advice

One of the things with a van and trailer is you still have weight considerations. Our E350 van could seat all 12 of us but if we hitched our 10,000 lb trailer to it, we were seriously overweight, so since we never went more than a few hours from home, I could tow the trailer with my pickup, and mom would bring the kids in the van. As the kids have aged out we have now moved to a DP and are looking for a smaller toynauler to house the remaining kids and allow for something motorized also

Synthetics in a diesel pusher

Was just wondering, has anyone run Amsoil or similar products in a diesel? I use it in our sprinter and it seems to be ok, was wondering if there is any advantage to using it in our cat motor.

Diesel pusher loses power going uphill

I have a 2001 Fleetwood Discovery 37 foot Diesel Pusher with 60,000 miles Last week we took a trip over Donner to Wheatland, Ca. And Bishops Pumpkin Farm. Coming back, it ran great till we got into the mountains and started pulling hills and all of a sudden, I was down to 35 mph and had no power. We crawled up to the top of Donner Summit at 35 mph, when I got to the top, I stopped at the rest area and shutdown while using the facilities. After that it seemed to run better, but would still drop down in speed as soon as we encountered any kind of incline. Does anyone have any ideas what to check? I am trying to avoid another generator situation, if it is something simple. Engine is a CAT. THANKS IN ADVANCE. MERRILL
