2 Trojans for me too. Both are now 9 years old and are still strong. When they do weaken I’ll definitely replace them with the same. They have been well taken care of over the years. I also use a Cpac machine, two nights will leave me at about 70%

Update , I just finished a 2000 mile trip with the new tire and they did well. So far I like them, they are smooth and quite.

Well I just installed 4 new agilis LT tires on the rear of my born free so I’ll let you know what I think after a while. I still have a relevantly new set of Michelin Defenders on the front. A word of caution, one of my Borg long valve stems was dangerously close to wearing through where it had been...

Yes I too had ran the same tire as you and put on the new Defender about a year ago and have found them to be as good as the old tires they replaced. 2001 26rsb

About 60,000 miles ago I had the same problem. My fix was to place a 1/2” steel plate under the floor carpet and then bolting through this to raise the generator back up tightly to the coach, my plate is about 14”x 20” and has worked perfectly for the last 10 years . This spreads the load over a wid...

Some of the best $ spent , tire momtor, ac protection and monitoring, scan gage for engine monitor . All added peace of mind and well worth the investment. 6 volt Trojan coach battery’s now 8 Year’s old and still going strong. Recommend a good dc volt gauge to monitor these also. New shock worth it ...

My thinking on keeping my coach is the same as you. I also have a 2001 rsb, 100,000 miles. I believe that at my age the up keep and maintaining will be cheaper than buying a new coach. And we both really like our coach and have kept it in great shape. I am planning to replace my water/radiator hoses...

I just last year started using a product called Rejects, I really like it for cleaning and protecting the fiberglass in one application. I use it now on my car and trucks as well. So far I highly recommend it.

Well it looks like a lot of have had this problem, I used a similar fix to mine and it has worked well so far. Some of the fixes shown should be stronger than new. Check your generator compartment, I had to reinforce it in a like fashion about 10 years ago and it has held perfectly.

I had always done this with Out any problem,BUT the next day on I-81 we were broke down with transmission trouble. Turned out we had a broken overdrive gear on the end shaft. No w...
