      AdventureAwaits We have an Allure 420.  We love our CC; however, we have had some problems - so be sure to make sure all the main and/or costly things are working well.

    Some people have concerns. I have used it for years. It is hard to avoid. I treated it this winter and had no problems at minus 5 degrees.

      Ken & Lida Welcome to the Diesel RV Club.

      Yes, bio diesel is here to stay-- today mostly because of state legislatures. The percent, as the pump sticker say is UP TO XXX.

      Biodiesel has less BTU's per gallon, so power and MPG are off slight...  more

    I just read a post that said they don't use truck stop diesel because it has biodiesel blended in. What's wrong with biodiesel? Any comments?

      M & B Songer Diesel, in any region, is diesel. It really comes from the same source in a region. Diefferent trucks with different branding show up at the build distribution source and haul it to their branded outlet. Bio-diesel is blended with “farm grown” oils and bl...  more Hide 1 Reply

      Mike and Donna Wagner While I can't comment on the specifics of that model, it is well known that Beaver made a very high end quality coach.  Our coach is a Safari-Beaver combo, built at the Beaver plant in Bend, OR in 2001, and we bought it new in 2002.  It's very d...  more

    We are traveling north & west from Florida this summer. One of our must see places is Dorr county, Wisconsin. Wondering what we should not miss and where is the best camping? If you've been there, we'd love to hear from you. Thanks!

      LarandSus I'd suggest a stop at my hometown of Sheboygan, WI along the way. It has a cute waterfront area and downtown. Have breakfast or stop in for fresh "bakery" at Johnston's Bakery (&cafe best selection earlier in the morning but some choices available later)....  more

      Miki & John Thank you for your suggestions... I was looking at Sheboygan so glad you mentioned it.  Any suggestions on where we should camp?

        LarandSus I've never visited with the RV and haven't been to this park in many years but my first thought was Terry Andrae State Park because it is on Lake Michigan. We do visit Sheboygan often.

      Miki & John perhaps you will be there when we arrive.  Hope to see you on the road.   Hide 1 Reply

        LarandSus I'm afraid it isn't on the itinerary this year. We did stop at Wisconsin Dells for my last birthday and had a good time there.

      Mystic Warrior Very nice, expensive, but sounds like a good job. We had no exhaust smell, smoke or loss of power/mpg. Hoping the Cummins Shop here is as honest and trustworthy, fingers crossed.

        Tom and Barbara It is a discount club that saves you 10% on Cummins parts and 10% on labor. I seem to remember it cost $20 a year. Small price for big savings. You can probably Google it.
    • Mystic Warrior
      Dell & Judy Jackson Honestly and Integrity are sadly missing in society, appears to have invaded Cummins also. Take your concerns to Cummins Corporate Office and ask for an investigation.
    • Mystic Warrior
      DenStar Our coach has been at a Cummins shop for a little over 2 months. We are not happy campers right now. We are suppose to be able to pick it up next week. Details after that.
