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.

RE: Best wax for lazy people?

We have been using Wash and Wax All on the RV and the cars. It is very fast and easy to use. You just spray it on and wipe it off.

RE: storage tips for keeping batteries in good shape ????

I purchased two BatteryMinders - one for the engine batteries and one for the house batteries. I keep them connected to the batteries when we are at home. As stated, you do not add acid to batteries - you only add distilled water. The easy way to do that is install a battery watering system. You pump water in one house and it tops off all the batteries. You should do this before each trip.

RE: Pros and Cons of owning a class A RV

Driving in a class A with air bags is very comfortable. The passenger can get up and get a drink, make a sandwich, use the restroom, etc. Also, we like the choice of what toad to bring. We have a fuel efficient toad and we have a Jeep Rubicon. We tow the Jeep to places like Moab and have a great time. That would not work with a fifth wheel.

RE: Battery Chargers

I used this one to keep all 4 house batteries charged and it also is a Desulfator: BatteryMinder 128CEC1: 12V 2/4/8 AMP I also use one to keep the 2 engine batteries maintained: BatteryMINDer Model 2012: 12Volt-2 Amp Battery Charger When I get home, I just clip them on and forget it. They work well.

RE: Air Conditioner Performance

I also recommend an external windshield screen. We have the Magneshade and they work very well.

RE: Do you contribute ?

We contribute to rvparkreviews. We figure if we find it very useful, we want to contribute our reviews to it.

RE: Miles per day.

No more than around 400 miles per day. However, if it is windy back roads, we do less miles per day since it is more tired and time consuming.

RE: Diesel Pusher, side vs rear mount radiator

I would not make the radiator location a major determinant in deciding if a motor home is right for you. If you somehow find two identical motor homes and one has a side radiator and one has a rear radiator, I would go for the one with the side radiator. However, it never works that way. Models either have one or the other. More important are the quality of the coach, how well it has been cared for, and if the length and floor plan will work for you.
