Just put a new set of tires on our 12500# Class C and am in a quandary about tire pressure. Manufacturer recommendation verses actual experiance? Manufacturer says 80 cold. My previous tires at 75# wore out in the middle of the tread as in over inflation.
Third time is a charm, Right? We will be leaving Arizona mid June on what we hope will be a three month journey and in Ohio for the The Rustic Retreat..Life just got in the way. We did a 5,000 mile trip, to North Dakota, Southern Texas and home last October and the Leprechaun was great. Averaged10mpg even towing a trailer. Held up and wasn't to bad in the wind. We had a few minor adjustments but all…Continue

Obviously I'm new here, I've read a little bit already, but I'm happy to be here.
I was on facebook a bit, but I honestly care very little for facebook. So I'm here.
I'm asking for pointers tho.
So, in mid 2014 my family kinda fell apart, and we stumbled on a 1984 Chevrolet Fireball (G30 5.7L V8)
We lived in it for a year and a half, replaced the heater and repaired it's TH400 Transmission. After that, we moved into a moral on Route 40 in…Continue

My 1967 Lakeland camper has the original table that slides into
a track on the back wall of the camper and has a leg. It is VERY
heavy. I found a product for a lighterweight table that can still hold up as the bed. Lamalight.
Does anyone know where I can get a new…Continue

I am brand new at this so please bear with me.
I just acquired a this RV and am excited to get going. Unfortunately, I am a rookie and don't understand the function of the various features and components.
I have scoured the internet looking for an owner's manual but can't even find a mention of this vehicle.
Any information you could provide would be greatly appreciated.
Hi, I just purchased this trailer and am looking for help identifying it. The top pops up, has 4 bunks. Has a angle iron frame and plywood exterior. Looking for photos and any info on the company, and it history.
Hello, I'm looking for other Balboa Motorhome owners, I made a website, albeit, basic right now, to house this info.
I'd like to connect with other owners, compile manuals, info etc. for current and future users. Looking for detailed history about Jensen Marine, stories about Balboas, etc.

SATURDAY NIGHT MOON OVER NEW MEXICO FIRST TIME OUT IN MY FIRST CAMPER
Added by Eddie Marquez on May 5, 2020 at 2:34pm — No Comments
Had a bit of a leak that started this morning. Could hear the water pump doing short cycles about once an hour.
Searched the entire fuel line system for a filter.
Hidden between the propane tank and the frame, I find the bugger... finally.
Not only do I find the filter, but I find a kink in the steel hose which was apparently caused when someone moved the propane tank to access the filter. This is why this rig was crapping out on the hills. Guaranteed.
Wonder how long the last owners put up with that??…Continue
I have an atwood hydro flame heater in my 84 shasta class c motorhome. I had an issue with the heater and had to remove if from the camper. The exhaust tube was destroyed with removal.

Have a older 16' Layton camper. Has anyone converted their rear slide out sofa / bed to a jack knife sofa? Is a conversion kit or hardware made? OR Is there a better option?

Just purchased a 1983 Apollo 3300 DB. Frame is in great shape but a lot of work ahead. The 453 Chevy runs fantastic but some water damage inside. Cannot wait to get started and update everyone on the progress! Happy RVing everyone
So we just experienced 5 days of no electric in our home due to power shutoffs in case of fire and at the same time another big fire that came within 30 miles of us. We never used the generator before and hoped that it being 38 years old wouldn't be a problem. It worked! So thanks to our old motorhome we were ready if we had to evacuate and we suffered little with the power outage. Thank you Onan!
