RE: Awning RECALLS

Do NOT use your cell phone while your awning is unfurling....California will prolly pass a law on that.....just sayin.....:B:B...Dennis Kinda like the late 70's when we were warned not to fly in DC-10s full of Pintos with Firestone 500 tires on them because you might crash into Three Mile Island, and then get covered with asbestos.

RE: A little scary

First time ever riding in a class A motorhome. I was not the driver. Went from Chicago to Florida and back. I felt so unstable in there---like everything was loosy goosy with a sensation of toppling over. Is this normal for the first few times? and will I get used to it? Fairly new (to me) owner of our first motorhome here (a 34 foot Damon Challenger on a Ford chassis) I'm an inexperienced (first time was when we bought it) RV driver and LOML had never sat in an RV. Needless to say, LOML was quite nervous the first few times... the poor handrests really took a beating. For the first couple of drives I even had that "falling off a cliff" feeling (though I would never tell anyone but LOML and you few-thousand folks)... ...but that feeling has gone away... and LOML has lost that "uncomfortable" feeling (we are working on our RV 3-4 times a week so drive the 2-mile trip from our parking spot to our house quite a bit) Some of the improvement also came from me getting a little driving experience. Learning what speeds and how to enter/exit turns (especially slow speed turns) and how to massage the accelerator through bumps/over railroad tracks etc and cause the least amount of wallow and swing (I'm quickly learning how to hit both wheels on an obstacle at the same time and accelerate out of the obstacle to minimize sway) Simply put, give it a little time and if things don't improve I suggest you look into the other solutions presented here by the more experienced drivers/passengers. The advice and wisdom here on the site has been invaluable. Just my .02 Lawrence OK, I give up. What does LOML stand for? I assume OML stands for Old Mother-in-Law but I can't guess what the L stands for. Love of My Life....

RE: A little scary

DW rides/sleeps in the back of our Bounder all the time. Says I seem to find the bumpiest road just when she decides to lay down on the bed. Most the time she sits at the dinette and works, with several computers/monitors set up, a router and wireless card. Haven't thrown anything off the table yet...but then again my Bounder rides real smooth with little side to side motion.
