  1. Just a follow up on the vote. IT PASSED. This should give money for upgrading and for building parks. The fun part is it does not raise taxes. For those who might be intersted the results can be seen heare. https://apps.texastribune.org/features/2019/texas-election-results-2019-constitutional-amendments/ One outher big amendment to pass was Prop 4. Making it more challenging for future lawmakers to enact a personal income tax, requiring support from two-thirds – instead of a simple majority – of the House and Senate and a majority of Texas voters. Bill
  2. This would be a good time for all those who "Domicile" in Texas step up and exercise their vote. There are several things that will affect RVers directly. Like do you want to pay a state income tax? Bill
  3. If you can vote in Texas Vote yes on prop. 5 From 1993 to 2017, the state has collected nearly $2.5 billion in revenues from the Sporting Goods Sales Tax, yet only 40 percent has been spent on state and local parks. Prop. 5 is a constitutional dedication of revenue from the existing sales tax, so those dollars can only be used by the Texas Parks and Wildlife Department and the Texas Historical Commission on public parks and historic sites, and not for any other purposes. Importantly, Prop. 5 requires no new taxes or fees. A YES vote on Prop. 5 on Nov. 5 will protect Texas’ natural areas and historic sites, so we don’t lose the very things that make Texas a special place in which to live. Bill
  4. The outher big thing (to me) get a towbar like Blue Ox that stayes on the RV not on the toad. One outher thing. I recommend getting a 10,000 lb rate towbar so if you change to a different toad that might be heavier you don't need to buy a new towbar. I also like the added safety cushion to. Bill
  5. I only run Diesel Kleen in the white or gray bottle depending on temps. Diesel Kleen is now endorsed and recommended by Cummins. If you have any concerns about oil lubricity just run Shell Rotella T-6. Bill
  6. I am glad the climate is warming up. Why was nobody complaining about it when the ice sheets were over a mile thick in New Jersey? Hypocritical, what I think is hypocritical is Al Gore who started this tale and made his fortune on selling Global Warming. Why is he flying around in his private jet if he believed in it? Well there is to much more. Bill
  7. Brad Before I did I would ask to drive his rig and see how it works. I am willing to bet he hasn't done this. I would NEVER do it. I am trying to figure how someone thinks engine oil and transmission oil can be swapped. Bill
  8. Well it is to bad you feel that way. Perhaps others can learn from your mistakes. Maybe if you worked on your attitude they would come back.🤣 😘 Bill
  9. Joe, I think you are right. We didn't get to try to explain that he will need to do a bunch of suspension upgrades to make that NEW gas coach comfortable to drive. Not to mention all the warranty work that will be needed. I found several coaches he was looking at. All were in the $180,000 to $175,000 range before all the add ons, like super wax job and treatments for the carpet type things. Go look at the last coach I posted a link to. $136.500. That would leave at least $43,500 for any upgrades/repairs. I want you to tell me which you would be better for full time use. Which one would be the better buy. I also don't want to hear about "the OP wants a gas coach and that is what he should get." The OP came here to get help in making a decision from people who allegedly know and have actual experience. Telling the OP to spend that much on a gas coach is like telling him "go ahead and buy that rowboat shure it leaks bad but the exercise bailling is good for you". Bill
  10. Near Mendon, MO? I haven't stayed there but have stayed in Sedalia, KC and St Louis. Looks like a nice area. What tow bar/brake system are you looking going to use? Bill
  11. You are going to be happy towing 4 down. I see you have been some of the places I have. Where are you now? Bill
  12. Well yes it is. Want to bet he comes back and tells us he bought the gas coach over the weekend , if he hasn't already had the paperwork in the system. Well I don't know what you did but if you did the same thing, then yes I think you could have made better choices. I know you won't admit to making a bad choice. No one likes to admit the could have done it better. If that is true, why are they on this forum asking for advice from people with experience? I can understand how easy it would be to make not as good decisions years ago. You didn't have the tools like this forum to gather information and benefit from others experience. Bill
  13. Thanks for your service. Unfortunately trying to give advice to the OP seems to be a waste of time. He ask, but his mind is made up and facts about fulltiming by people who have experience doesn't matter. He is dead set to spend a lot of money on a entry level gas coach. For example for the same money as the gas coach you can have this quality/luxury diesel coach. https://www.motorhomesoftexas.com/Pre-owned-Inventory-2007-Foretravel-Motorhome-Nimbus-340-6649627?ref=list Here is something else to look at. https://www.motorhomesoftexas.com/Pre-owned-Inventory-2008-Newmar-Motorhome-Mountain-Aire-45-6649415?ref=list Many reley like the comfort Comfort Drive Steering with Adjustable Control. Here is one that is amazing and only $136.500. That would leave at least $43,500 for any upgrades/ repairs. https://www.motorhomesoftexas.com/Pre-owned-Inventory-2005-Foretravel-Motorhome-U295-6800828?ref=list Unfortunately I think the OP has the misconception that he needs to buy new because he thinks it is like buying a new car, say a Honda. Pick it up and never have a problem. Bill
  14. Is this because you are concerned about "power"? What are you towing now on the tow dolly? The more important question is can I tow it using a dolly or 4 down. Be aware that some all wheel drive cars can't be towed on a dolly but can be towed 4 down, I have a 2014 CR-V that is that way. Bill
  15. Not enough information. What RV are you going to be taking? Where are you going "New England states" is a big area and has a diverse supply of places. I have been in The New England states the last 2 summers. I will be heading back that way in May. I have been from Niagara Falls to East Port Main. You definitely need a towed to get around in. Give me some answers and I can give you better answers. Bill
