Cover to keep snow off coach
« on: February 28, 2017, 07:17:56 AM »
I just got a cover to keep the snow off my coach.

It is 50 feet deep, 18 feet wide and 14 feet high with an epoxy floor.

It came with a few other nice features.

There is a fenced and gated parking pad included for my Stacker.

On the other side of the house is a spa and heated pool.

After 35 years on the road I guess I can slow down.

Looks like a nice place.  I am in the middle of building my cover for the coach. ;)  Hope to have it done by mid summer.  It also has a workshop attached to it.

I like your gate, that is going to be the first project in my new shop.  I built a sliding gate at our last house but this one is going to be so wide I thought I would build a double swinging style gate.

Enjoy, looks great Bill.

I don't know but I think you used the wrong S word.

Snow should be replaced with SUN.

That is unless you plan on having snow shipped in.   ;D ;D ;D

That is exactly what I would like, but probably can't (or won't) afford.  I would want it closer to my grandson (and son) in Vegas.

Beautiful place!!

I followed the professional home inspector this morning as he did the inspection.  Everything was fine.  Discovered that I have a 250 gallon propane tank for the heated pool.  Of course the tank was near empty.

I was surprised to find that I have two 50 amp RV electric outlets, one is inside the RV Garage and one is outside on the wall in the gated parking area.  They are on separate breakers and the RV garage has its own sub panel.  Both areas also have water and sewer connections.

Bill, it sounds like you just purchased this home. Is that right?

I don't know how it is in other states, but in Delaware, any fuel in permanent tanks has to be paid for separately at settlement and is priced at current market price that day. That cost is usually not included in the sale price of the house.
Anyway, CONGRATULATIONS!!! on the new home. I truly hope you two get a lot of enjoyment out of it, you deserve it.

Congrats.

Did you move in yet?

Would like to see some images of YOUR coach at it's new home.

So the Stacker has to sit outside in the Sun I mean snow.   ;D


I just looked at the title of this post and you only mentioned "snow off coach" so Stacker must be outside.  >:(

Looks great Bill! Really a nice looking place. We finally started on our garage extension. We built the house 18 years ago with an RV garage that was big enough for our (then) 28 foot Class A. Fortunately, it was also big enough for our 2nd 32 foot Class A. But I never thought we'd own a 43 footer that was 13 feet tall, so for the last three years, our Tour has sat outside.

Unfortunately, California's building code requirements for earthquake protection have increased astronomically in the last 18 years, and of course, so has the price. $55,000 for a 10 foot garage extension! The structural requirements for such a large garage door opening are shocking and required other parts of the garage to be reinforced too.  :( 11 yards of steel reinforced concrete (being poured today), footings that would support a multi-story building, custom welding - it goes on and on. The two end footings are 5 feet deep X 4 feet X 4 feet. Oh well...

It's supposed to be done in two months - as long as our record setting rains will ease up. By the way, that's Jo Jo in one of the footing-canyons.

Closing is set for the 29th,  I am trying to get it moved up.

The Stacker would not fit in the RV garage because of the height including solar panels.  Parking it outside will allow the solar panels to keep the freezer cold in the Stacker.

I am test fitting the coach in the RV garage next week, (I have already measured it for fit).

I can leave the slideouts open and have a couple of feet around it.

I am thinking about putting a huge photo mural of a beach scene on the wall of the garage so that I can camp indoor...LOL

The back overhead door will allow a nice flow of air thru the garage.

Next week they are also moving what is already in the garage.

Thanks for the info.

Does the floor actually tilt towards the front door?
Is there a drain in the floor anywhere?

I like the mural idea.

Just curious - Do you know why the previous owner sold this Palace?

I would like to apologize to anyone I have not yet offended. Please be patient and I will get to you shortly.

I think that there is a slight slope to the floor.  It is Epoxy and extends about 6 inches up the walls sealing the floor.  There is a floor drain, actually a cleanout that I can use to connect the sewer hose.

I was told that the family used this as a family vacation home and I believe that they are building another home.  The garage has all kinds of new appliances that are still sealed in the boxes.  I assume that they are for the new house as the ones in this house are also new.  I was told that their builder stored them temporally and they will be gone next week.

The home is fully furnished.

This is good. It will give the water a place to go when the snow melts.   ;D :D ;) :)

It fits....barely by about an inch after I dump the air suspension.

When I first looked at it in the driveway I was worried.

I can walk around it with the slides open.

I also have about 5 feet on both ends.

Plan B was to remove the automatic Sat Dome.  Did not have to do that.

Looks GREAT.

But did I see duct tape in front of the front tire?  On a pristine coach?

And you had to dump the AIR and THEN backup the coach into it's spot?  Better have it lined up 100%
as any turning might require more than duct tape to fix.   ;D

All I can say is "I wish" I had a cover for my MH, as it truly is OUTSIDE with nothing to keep the snow off of it.

Let me know if you ever want to trade places..... :-\

Betty,

I am an RV guy.  I was showing the MOST important stuff.  The decorator in chief is planning on using a Cowboy/Western theme on the decorating of the inside of the house.

The home is furnished but Renae is replacing some of the pieces and new artwork.  The bones are all good it just needs character. Film at eleven.

Redandsilver,

Pristine? First, I sometimes get dings and minor dents in the coach.  It does not really bother me as long as it does not impact it's functionality.

The Duct tape is there because that under storage door came open driving down the highway.  My quick fix was a strip of duct tape, (Bubba's Universal Fix it).

On dumping the air.

I found out that I have to put the gear in neutral and set the air brake to dump the air.  Then put it back in gear and hold the air dump switch down while moving.  I can turn the front wheels without rubbing with the air down.

Looks like a nice RV garage, home (what I can see from the front) looks nice as well.  Is your RV garage door 13' tall?  Just curious as you mentioned your ceiling is 14'.  I am going taller door and ceiling but I'm trying to gage how mine will look in my new garage after seeing the pictures of yours inside.

Thanks and congrats.
