    TV Lift Cabinet with Fireplace and Storage Build

    I promised to post a thread showing my modifications to my 2005 Winnebago Vectra that is new to me.  I started this project and did most of the work on it over the Christmas/New Years Holidays and just competed the project last week. The TV in our Winnie is mounted in the front, like many...

    New to me Winnebago Vectra

    Just wanted to post a note here since I am a new Winnebago owner and have not posted in the Winnebago Owner Specific section before.  I have been a member of the forum since 2006 and this is my third motorhome since that time.  I previously owned a 1998 Tiffin Allegro and a 2000 Fleetwood...

    Another defection to Residential Refrigerator

    Well, I finally defected and switched to a residential fridge and got rid of my Norcold 1200.  I have read so many posts about refrigerator fires and absorption refrigerators not cooling well or going out after only a year or two that I decided it was time to convert to the residential fridge in...

    Have finally made the decision to fulltime

    After years of traveling on weekends and vacations in a truck camper, a travel trailer and 3 motorhomes, my wife and I have finally reached a point that we are ready to go fulltime.  We've upgraded our RV over the years from the truck camper 30 years ago to our diesel pusher that we currently...

    Motorhome catches fire and burns

    I was on my way home yesterday and saw a huge fire with lots of black smoke on the freeway.  I thought it was a bad accident until I passed by and saw that it was a motorhome on fire sitting on the side of the road.  Fire trucks were on the way behind me and I was on the opposite side of the...

    Front airbag delayed inflation on 2000 American Dream

    When I took my coach out this weekend to exercise it and weigh it at a nearby scales, I had an issue with one of the front airbags not inflating.  I drove it for several miles and noticed that it was riding rough and seemed to not handle very well and was leaning on the drivers side.  When I...

    RV Park Recomendations in North Orlando

    My wife and I have to go to Orlando, FL for business in early April and wanted to see if anyone could recommend a good RV Park for 2 or 3 nights in the area north of Orlando (Maitland, Altamonte Springs, Winter Park or Oviedo area).  We don't want to get too far from downtown Orlando since...

    My First Diesel Motorhome

    Last year I sold my Motorhome and bought a 32 foot travel trailer.  We used it several times and enjoyed it, but we just didn't like it as well as a motorhome.  Well, as fate would have it, my son, who is a survey crew chief working for a pipeline construction company, needed a travel trailer to...

    Tire failure on I-10 -- Coach-Net to the rescue

    My wife and I took the motorhome on a weekend trip to Austin, Texas this past weekend staying at McKinney Falls State Park.  We had a wonderful weekend visiting with 3 of our sons and 2 of our grandkids.  The park was great and the falls were beautiful.  We headed back home Sunday afternoon and...

    Shoping for a new Digital Camera

    Well, I've been looking into replacing my point-and-shoot digital camera with a better camera.  I've been reading the posts from Tom about his new Cannon DSLR and the expert opinions from Tom, Bob, Jim, Ron and others who are experienced photographers.  I've also looked at the pictures that many...

    Survived Hurricane Ike but had some damage

    We evacuated from Southeast Texas to Sallisaw, OK in the motorhome and missed the storm, but found that we had some damage to the house from a big oak tree that fell when we returned this past weekend.  Funny thing is, I thought my motorhome shed would be gone when we got back, but it was the...

    Tropical Storm Edouard

    Tropical Storm Edouard suprised us and made landfall during the night instead of this morning as predicted.  It also came ashore farther East than predicted.  The original path showed it making landfall right at Galveston Texas, but it turned more North during the night and came ashore between...

    This is a terrible case of neglect

    I saw an ad for a 2001 Alpine 38' diesel motorhome in a local ad and was curious about it because of the low mileage and decent price.  I drove over to where this coach was, about 25 miles away, to check it out.  The photo of the coach looks like it is in decent condition, but it was far from...

    No DC power up front

    Last weekend when we were traveling in the MH, the power went out on the DC outlet on the dash.  It happened when I pluged in my cell phone charger, which I have done before with no problem.  I just knew it was a blown fuse, but I can't seem to find the fuse for that outlet.  It is the original...

    Windshield Leak

    Well, we had not gone anywhere in the motorhome in several weeks, so last weekend we decided it was time for a trip.  We went to the beach close to Galveston, Texas and dry camped and everything went wonderful until we started home on Sunday.  We stopped to eat and walk through some shops and...

    Locked gas cap--no key

    HELP!  Anybody know how to get off a locking gas cap if you have no key?  I've had the MH for a few weeks, but have not needed to fill up because I have not taken a trip yet.  But now I need to fill it up and realized last night that it has a locking gas cap and I didn't get a key to that when I...

    New Tires

    I am about to replace all of the tires on my 1998 Allegro Class A that I just bought because they are 10 years old according to the date code.  They only have 7,800 miles on them, but after reading this forum, I know they have to be replaced before I can go anywhere.  The tires are Michelin 7.50...

    Battery or Alternator trouble?

    I'm having trouble figuring out what's going on.  I went out to start my 4K Onan generator on my 1998 Allegro and it wouldn't start from the generator control panel.  So I started the engine, which started fine and then tried it from the switch on the dash and the generator started just fine.  I...

    Motorhome cover

    I just purchased a 1998 Allegro 25' motorhome and am in the process of building a canopy to park it under.  In the meantime, the coach is parked outside, in the open, at a self-storage lot for motorhomes.  Should I cover the coach with a tarp while it is outside or just leave it open.  It may be...

    Newcomer

    Hi, my name is Dan Walters and I am the proud new owner of a 1998 Allegro 25' Class A motorhome.  This is not my first motorhome, although it has been almost 20 years since the first one (a 1982 Allegro 29') so I am all but starting over and learning again.  I do have one question.  The coach is...
