That's so wonderful to hear...We just bought a 2003 Winnebago Adventurer two days ago, and I'm trying to learn every thing I can. Kirk even answered one of my questions...Thanks again Kirk...For now, I've got lots of reading of posts to learn, so I don't ask stupid questions...haha...Good to be here...)) Rita
welcome Rita, if you have some patients you will get your question(s) answered. we have a bunch of RVers who like to have fun with each other , but there are some very good tech's and some mechanics on this forum that will go out of there way to help a fellow RVer. So just remember there are no dumb questions on this froum. PS happy camping :laugh:

Welcome Rita, you can post most of your rv :question: in general rv but most anywhere is ok. Be warned to not mention BEACH in any :question: you ask 730 because he will go beserk :laugh: Keep the Adventure service, fix the little things, watch for leaks and be sure and ck tires. They should be replaced every 5 to 6 years regardless of tread. The Adventure is a good MH IMO
Hey I gotta diesel pusher, a Discovery with a Cat diesel. Us diesel people are like Harley Davidson people. No matter what the price of diesel fuel we will still drive a diesel. By the way tonight I noticed on the freeway there was only .20 difference between diesel and reg. gas :approve: :laugh:
Gas lines remind me of the 70s today here in alabama. most stations were out of reg which has jumped to $4 a gallon. Some stations were already closed. I talked with a local station owner and he said he was not going to order any more now because it was going to cost him 5 bucks a gallon.
well i know this is off topic ,, but here in TN we have no gas ,, most stations are out ,, or out of reg or mid grade ,, but as of tonight gas was 5.02 ,, dielsel was 4.19 ,,, our pilot's and exons are pulling teeth to get fuel to their stations ,, the pilot fuel center off i40 in Lenoir city is out of reg gas ,, and a running low on diesel ,,, and our local texaco was at 3.99 still ,, and they were gonna keep it that way till they ran completely out of gas and diesel ,, both were 3.99 :angry: :disapprove: :disapprove: :dead: :dead:
I guess you found out all class A's are here. I used to have a gasser, '05 Pace Arrow, and just traded for a Revolution. After owning 4 gassers I opted for a DP (diesel will come down , right?) Every one said I was nuts to buy a diesel with fuel cost so high, but today I showed them.....Reg gas-$4.56 gal. Diesel-$4.09 gal.
I have started running my Gasser MH on 89 octane gas. I get almost 1/2 mpg more than 87. for the .12 more per gallon it works out cheaper. I think that there is no ethanol in the 89 octane so that may be the reason. (thanks Nash and Rod.)
As long as we were off topic anyway. I thought I would put in my .02
Rita, if new to RVing, try to avoid driving your RV in the winter time on salt covered roads. We lent our 29' Dutchstar (gasser) to a co-working who took it up to Ohio in the dead of winter. When he got back he hosed it down and washed it clean on the outside, but there was a good 10-15 pounds of salt piled up everywhere on the undercarriage. Since last winter, the remote start wire for the generator corroded in half, the choke on the generator corroded and stuck in the on position, then the throttle control linkage for the generator corroded and the generator became unable to maintain a constant 115V AC. Last time we drove it out of the "cave" we keep it in, I found a 1" rusty spring that had corroded in two and fell off the RV. Needless to say, it now sits on a dealers lot and we pick up our "new" Revolution in 4 days.
On a side note. How many in here loan their RVs to family or friends?! We have decided we are not going to loan this one out. Let's face it, there are just too many things you have to know an awful lot about to work, or you can really mess up an RV. I am curious and will feel better saying "No" if others feel the same way.
Tom my MH is my pride and joy, and no I will not loan it out to anyone, kin or not, and I will not rent it either. I always tell them if they want to go camping in a MH, TT or a 5th wheel go and buy one. It hard but no one is going to protect your investment like you will. :laugh:
