when I first bought the beast home and cleaned it up I used another brand of floor polish it was ok,,,,can not seem to find the Pro Max anywhere local,,tried a bunch of sites, ebay, amazon also,,hmmmmmm this sounds like a good product,,, I also keep my beast indoors,,, but want to add some more protection to the fiberglass areas  may have to go with the marine polish... some guy up in Washington on craigslist had a bunch of it maybe I ought to contact him see if he would ship it to Texas

I keep my RV in a covered locked storage shed. We do not worry about hard freezes too much in Houston. I worry more about UV and cooking the unit in the sun.. going next week to run the genie and do some measuring for my projects. Last time I went out  is was 84degrees inside the unit.  Getting some good points about exercising the genie.   

Oil- I asked one of the sales guys at auto zone about Mobil One,,, he says they guarantee the syn oil for 12,000 miles.  I think I'm going to go with about 6 to 7,000,, better than reg oil.. you know it use to be every 3000miles to change,,, the manufacturers are building much better vehicles now, also the gas is better and burns better,, still looking for some thoughts on oil changes

WEATHER TECH MATS   I just spent a few minutes looking at these,, they look great  however a little expensive,,, where did you buy them   FIND A DEAL ANYWHERE???  You know we all are looking for a good deal haha
 I think the ones I looked at on Amazon were 67.00
 
I took some cheap (about 12 dollars) single layer set of mats from walmart, cut them to fit all the curves in the front.. work great, but always looking for something better

  No I do not disagree,, just looking and seeing what other peoples thoughts are.  These are very expensive vehicles and as some of us know if we take care of them they will last a long time and provide us with a lot of joy. Some people  shop for an answer to a question sometimes,,, I like to see different opinions and then make a decision.  Currently I am going with no tire rotation, alignment with new tires,, just reinforcing  my  decision,,  If 6 people jumped in here and said they rotate their tires the I might reconsider    BTW,,, I keep looking at my garage and dream of taking out about  4 ft so I can park my cruiser in it haha

  Ron brought up some good points as always, also I hate him because of his garage haha...couple of more points, we camp full hook ups, electric only, water electric,  no hook-ups.. the benefit of each is obvious, but  a lot of times cost comes into play,   I think Ron said this, but anyway your fresh water tank = your waste water output.  So if you dry camp you should always have enough room for your waste water, of course your going to fill the grey tank, but you can open close your tanks to take some of the grey into the black tank, works great and really helps.  I have no problem going into a park and just doing , electric, saves money, just have to watch the water use.  If I have water/electric, great, but still keep an eye on the waste tanks, again save money,, now if were going to be somewhere for a couple of days would prefer full hook-ups so I can take advantage of everything,,, a lot of National State Parks  are dry camping,, first couple of times we were weary of this type of camping, but after some practice have no problem, most govt parks are cheap,,,anyway just a couple of points,,,   Our tank always shows at least 1/4, but I do not worry about it

I  think we have the air pressure question answered.. do not over/under inflate,  same PSI on each set front and rear, PSI will vary between each different RV,   Same area new issue

ALIGNMENT  I have seen people get new tires, get alignment and leave it alone as long as tires behave and driving is good..  I rotated tires on a previous RV, had 7500miles on it, tires looked great,, 4000 miles later ate one of my tires on the front..  My PC  had 6700 when purchased, has stabilizer and shock system on it after market. Drives wonderful, am approaching 12000 miles, tires still look great,  based upon previous post and comments I am not going to touch the tires (alignment/rotation) just keep checking and rechecking tire pressure haha,,,, I do plan on getting about two years more on the tires,, mileage will not be the problem, age will be the factor.   Any thoughts on rotating tires. I will do an alignment when buying new tires

Couple of questions.

EXERCISING THE GENERATOR, I exercise the genie (while in storage) every 4 weeks, also I drive the RV couple of miles to move tires, mark them so that they do sit on the same spot.  Is this routine pretty normal and other suggestions?

OIL--- I'm using synthetic, it seems i'm getting different opinions regarding how long to run it  and changing the oil.  What are you opinions and suggestions.

BTW, unit is in storage now (covered),, I do not travel in the summer, too hot, back out in the fall.

GOOD THREAD and a never ending argument. Many good points, main point never never underinflate and never over inflate,,, would be interesting to see the PSI on your tires after rolling a couple 100 miles in the heat and running at 80psi, wow,,,, I think every rig obviously is different depending upon size, suspension and loaded not loaded. If you wanted to be anal about it you would adjust the psi every time filled up with gas, used your water tank etc etc,,, too much work for me,,, I do check my air every day when traveling. I adjust couple of psi if going dry camping and vice versa more/less weight.  Another point,,, altitude.. thinner air above sea level,, I do adjust when I'm running around the mountains for a few days.

WATER TANK-??? I think most of us have the 55gallon tank in the rear.. looking at mind, it looks like it extends the whole width of the rear, so that as it empties the weight is evenly distributed on both sides of the rear tires. Now if your straight dumping with hook ups no problem all the weight is gone, however if your dry camping it seems the tanks are mainly on the driver side rear,, so you have now put a lot of extra weight on one side, considering 400lbs  might need to up the psi on the rear driver side a little, especially if not dumping too soon.. Just curious
