    Saw a post recently re steering stabilizer benefits. I called our dealer today re the Safety Plus, and he recommended that we also take a look at the Blue Ox Tru Center. Any comments re the comparison between the two products? Blue Ox is more expensive ...  more

    We are having trouble with heat gauge going up while traveling. Various attempts at repair over 2 years. Likely a radiator problem. Any suggestions for Freightliner repair in South TX? Also have no dash heat.

    We're thinking about stopping by Red Bay on our way to the Florida Panhandle for some repair items on our 2011 Phaeton. Where do you go first to get on the list? Do you go directly to the service center/campground? Thanks.

      TED MILLER I am currently at Red Bay, along with 135 of my closest friends. All the campgrounds in Red Bay are full. Wait times are 3 to 5 days for Express bays, two weeks for more extensive work. Just fyi

      Steve & Diane Parks We always call the Camp Hosts a day ahead to get an idea of availability in the campground.

      Hank & Shirleen Spring and fall, when people are headed to or from Florida is not the best time to go there. Everybody wants to stop by then!

      Jim and Jane Van Haur we just left yesterday.  Got there on a Friday, got into a bay on Tuesday, gone on Saturday.  Not too bad.  Won't come back this time of the year, better maybe in Feb or July.  Nice people, good work done.

    Picked her up yesterday in Seattle. Our second night we are in Weeds, CA. So far all is well, except we are unable to figure out the TV set up. Oh well, that's what our genius kids are for, right? LOL

      xctraveler Glad to hear we are not the only nutcases that like our roads twisty and up and down. Try the road from Big Bend down through Lajitas and Presidio. If that isn't enough CA 74 up out of Palm Desert is as steep and twisty as you might want. Up is just slow,...  more Hide 2 Replies

    Patti & Jack :
    Does anyone get what I call “diesel dust” in the back bathroom close to the rear engine diesel? I notice a little on the counter and trim and am assuming this is normal/okay. Have never noticed fumes/diesel odor. Thanks.

        Patti & Jack Hope you get in soon.  We have never been there and probably never will.  Will be interesting to see what 'someone" says about the diesel dust.

      Ron & Joanne M. Sounds nasty. Knock on wood, haven't had that issue. I drive with vents cracked open a lot and haven't noticed black soot anywhere.

      TED MILLER OK, I’m at Red Bay now. After asking four different techs the same question, The consensus is that they see it on many coaches,  but the engine bay is supposed to be sealed so that the “dust” doesn’t show. The “dust” doesn’t indicate a problem per se...  more

      Patti & Jack Ted - THANK YOU for asking the techs.  We surmised this was the issue - i.e., not an issue nless there were other symptoms.  We may run a bead of clear silicone gel around the engine cover but it really isn't much.  We have to drive over 50...  more

      Dale Watkins Thanks to all, up to this point!   My wife and I are often having a 'heart to heart' on coach 'length' as she feels a 36' would be plenty, since we'll be starting out with shorter trips before venturing out for months at a time.   It doesn't mat...  more

        King Family As mentioned state and national parks are the only place you're likely to encounter a length issue. My wife would like a 50 footer  :)
    • Dale Watkins
      Mills Travelers The only time our 40' length has ever been an issue is with certain state and national parks, which we very rarely visit. In other words, it's not an issue. If we upgrade, it will be for a 45 footer, according to wifey. To her, there is no such thing as a...  more

      Ron & Joanne M. Check out PPL motor homes. Don't have personal experience with them, but they get a lot of used rigs. All years and models. Seems like decent prices also.
