RE: Older MH mpg with diesel

I have a 2004 Cat C7 350hp - 40 feet. I get between 7.5 and 8 pulling a toad. This is out west - lots of mountains. With the weight the engine is pulling, I figure that is not bad.

RE: Water softner setup

As others have stated, you want the filter before the water softener. We have a sediment filter and a charcoal filter before the softener.

RE: Help Me Choose My Next Unit

If you purchase a Class A or Class C, make sure they can pull your truck or a Jeep. My Jeep is 4500 pounds empty weight and many of the class C's cannot pull it, even though they have 5,000 pounds hitches. To calculate how much an RV can tow: GCWR - GVWR = how much you can tow

RE: KOA membership

In looking at the KOA web site, not all KOAs offer any kind of military discount. Also, when you join KOA, you get points for every stay in addition to the discount. When you accumulate enough points, you can use them for nights at a KOA. You will need to do the math yourself based on how many KOA nights you plan to spend each year. We end up doing enough nights that it is worth the yearly cost.

RE: Bicycle Rack

Another option is to put a hitch in the front of the coach. I had this done and I really like this option. I do not have to worry about the heat from the radiator. I lock the bikes to the carrier when we get into camp.

RE: Full Hook-ups or no?

In order or priority: Power Water Sewer However, most of the time we have full hookups. We stay in RV parks and rarely park in the boonies. We are retired and we park in an area where we can see the local sights which usually means we are in a town.

RE: Newbie ClassA questions - Stacker trailers

Instead of looking under the topic of "Super C', do a search for Super C. There are posts there.

RE: Newbie ClassA questions - Stacker trailers

I agree - you need to go to a Super C. To figure out if the coach can pull the trailer: GCWR - GVWR = what you can tow

RE: New RV TV show 11/17/19

We recorded the first show and watched it last night. We were terribly unimpressed. There was very little content and lots of advertising. And the content was not very good. We will not be watching any more.

RE: Windshield Shades

Yes, the MagneShade works to keep the heat down by stopping the sun from coming in. It is also nice that you can see out during the day. It is easy to put on and there is no drilling for connectors.

RE: A Question Are you limited to life on pavement

We experience both by pulling our Jeep Rubicon. We park in a nice RV park, and then take the Wrangler out and explore the great outdoors. We hike, bike and 4 wheel.

RE: Those with portable surge protector

We do not use the external power monitor when at home. We have a whole house surge protector.

RE: Boycott “No Campfires”

I also prefer a campground that does not allow campfires at the site. I am fine with a place away from the sites, but I dislike the smell, smoke, and embers that fly up.

RE: 2 Years with a Older Class A

If I was purchasing an older Class A, and the current owner says "In the last 6 years, my expenses have been low since I have just needed to do oil and filter changes", or something like that, I would run. If you do the recommended scheduled maintenance, your costs would be much higher.

RE: To Buy or build

Cost wise, you are much better buying an older RV than doing a conversion. Green wise, an existing RV already has that stuff done so you do not have to waste resources building up a conversion. If she does not want all that glitz, get an older RV.

RE: Valve extenders safe?

Use the Borg one piece extended valves. They are solid and quality. No issues with leaking.

RE: Towing

I do not think you should exceed the weight you are supposed to tow. So my advice is to not do it.

RE: building new campground

For an overnight stop at an RV park, I would avoid the 8 mile drive one way and I would avoid dirt roads. If the RV park was a special destination, then I would consider it.

RE: Help with full timing over the winter

I would use rvparkreviews to look at the RV parks in the areas people have been recommending. The reviews will talk about the amenities, ease of access and the area around it. Be sure and read many of the reviews to get a good feel for the park.
