Tom, Thanks for the response. It looks like I am going to keep this thing. The software is quirky. Since Ike, my phone service at home which includes DSL has been up and down. I have a phone for a few hours, then it goes off. The 3G network is available when DSL is available. I have a second phone l...

Has anyone tried using an AT&T Aircard or equivalent as an alternative to campground WiFi? I just purchased an AT&T USBConnect Mercury and need to know if it is a viable alternative to trying to find RV Parks with WIFI. I like the idea of secure access to the internet, but is the 3-G network...

I have a Garman NUVI 660. It came with a suction cup mount and a plastic disk that attaches to the dash with a strong adhesive. It works fine. I had to move the disk a couple of times to get it located where I wanted it. I bought two more disks from Garman for my toad and second car. Garman's profit...

I will answer the questions that are common with the features on our BF 32'. 2. How would you rate the comfort of the sofa bed? My wife and I slept on a similar sofa bed in another RV when we were younger. We survived, but were happy to get a RV with a decent bed. The sofa bed is fine for our grands...

David, Since you own a 2002, if you are involved in the recall, you would have received the notice quite a while back. Disconnecting the chassis battery should prevent the problem, since how can there be a short with no juice. I would call a Ford dealer, give them your VIN and see if you are include...

I have used RV Masters Inc for four or five years. They are located at 1739 Bingle Road about one mile north of I-10 on the west side of Houston. I have been satisfied with the work they do. I had a discussion with the owner last summer about which RVs he thought required the least repairs. He menti...

I purchased a Roadmaster Falcon about 8 years ago after the Blue Ox broke and Blue Ox offered no replacement other than to tell me to buy a new one. Do you really want a tow bar that requires you to periodically go to rallies so the manufacturer can tighten the bolts that never should have come loos...

I only have 4,000 miles on my 2008 President. 2,000 of them towing a car. The car got dirty, but nothing that would not wash off. With my previous motorhome, I previously tried a bra on the car. Big mistake as indicated by the previous response. I did not remove the bra often enough a sustain some f...

I got my first recall back in September on my prior motorhome on a 1996 Ford chassis. This was the day before we were scheduled to depart for a 3 week trip to Colorado. The notice was scary. Don't park in or near a building or something to that effect. I called a Ford dealer and was told that they d...

Features include all pull-through sites, 20-30-50 amp electric at every site, free wi-fi, free continental breafast (including Texas shaped waffles), private bat...

I agree releasing the valve daily to get the moisture out is overkill. Of course, some of us living in more humid climates like Houston or Florida need to get rid of the moisture more often. Before we got the choke cable installed, we took a trip from Houston to Florida. I crawled under and released...

Late reply to post. We picked up our 2008 President RQ on Nov 6. We spent the first night at the factory and they fixed a couple of minor glitches in an hour the next day. This unit drives great -- better than our previous 30' Class A on a Ford chassis. Better performance, better gas mileage, shorte...

My wife and I were able to test drive the 32' BF at the factory. We determined that the turning radius is indeed shorter than our current RV and except for the added width it will be easier to back it into our RV Port garage. I was disappointed that one of the respondents was a factory rep under the...

Thank you all for your replies. I checked the specs on my present RV and the BF President. It looks like the BF has a shorter turning radius and should go into our garage about the same.

We have an appointment in Humboldt next week to take a look at the 08s.
