  1. Here is a place that does impeccable quality. Texas Custom Coach, http://texascustomcoach.com/ Bill
  2. So in reality you are just selling the rim. The tires are 12 years old. Bill
  3. Merry Christmas!!! and it is 70 in Dallas today.
  4. I would do a little more research before I did that. The hub in the picture appears good. If you over fill them they will leak out the vent hole and get oil on your wheels, brakes well everywhere. One big thing never get in a hurry it takes a long time for the oil to move and settle. Bill
  5. Best move I ever made. My absorption worked ok but gave up the ghost. I replaced it with a Sears that was about the same size. Wanted to use the popular SamSon but lacked 3" of height in the slide. Here is a little secret. If you had a ice maker in your absorption fridge you already are weird to your inverter. The receptacle that the icemaker was plugged into will give you 120V power from your battery bank. All the ice makers run on 120V So for them to work when on propane they have to have 120V power. That is where I am plugged in and never worried about it when traveling (eaven makes ice cubes on the road). I haven't turned it off in about 3 years now. I have gone a couple days without shore or gen power. Bill
  6. 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
  7. 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
  8. 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
  9. 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
  10. 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
  11. 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
  12. 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
  13. 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
  14. 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
  15. 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
