The 2012 40PDQ Monaco Knight

Posted 09-02-2011 at 07:59 PM by DriVer (Welcome To My Blog!)

As seen in Madison, WI at the FMCA 86th Family Reunion Rally I took these pictures of the new 2012 40DPQ Monaco Knight. What personally struck me as an attention grabber, was the detail in the front cap. Gone are the days when you can't pick out one motorhome from another in a row. The design statement by the new Monaco lineup for 2012, is bold and will leave no doubt in the eye of the beholder. Even the rear cap, typically a non event, is an attention grabber.

Self Install – MCD Manual DUO Day/Night Shades



1. The MCD shades arrived in a what seems to be an indestructible shipping container.
2. The shades were bubble wrapped and identified by location. The clips (6) were taped...

The 2012 40PDQ Holiday Rambler Ambassador

These pictures were taken at the FMCA 86th Family Reunion Rally in Madison, Wisconsin. Seen is the 2012 40PDQ Holiday Rambler Ambassador. Throughout this rally event, temperatures were somewhat below normal in the mid - to high 70s. During the week prior to our arrival, temperatures were in the 90s with high humidities. We could not have had better weather than was enjoyed during the week of the reunion rally. The rally was held at the Alliant Energy Center.

Installing a 110 volt electric Lightning Rod for the water heater

Posted 12-13-2010 at 06:50 PM by Wanabee FTer (More blogs to come)
Updated 12-13-2010 at 07:52 PM by Wanabee FTer

I read a few threads about the pros and cons of adding a 110 volt electric heating element to my Suburban 6 gallon DSI water heater. The good, reduced propane usage when camping at hook up sites. The bad, voids Suburban and Atwood water heater warranties. After all my research all I could find was a few people saying it will damage your water heater, but no one with first hand knowledge of this. The good posts outweighed the bad, so I decided to go ahead and install the Lightning Rod kit.

I Drive The 2011 Monaco Vesta

The 2011 Monaco Vesta

The first time that I saw the 2011 Monaco Vesta was at the Louisville RVIA Exposition this past December. At that time my impressions were that Monaco RV LLC wanted to make a statement and step away from the usual box appearance that so many motorhomes manufacturers present nowadays. Monaco states that Vesta is fully vertically integrated thereby giving Monaco complete control...

Winter Blues or Winter Do's??

Posted 12-05-2014 at 07:01 PM by michealwhela

I find myself sitting in front of the fireplace, feet up and considering the status of my favorite adult beverage. We recently experience a warm up. The outside temperature went all the way to 29 degrees and is supposed to hit 35 by this weekend. First thought, go get Winnie out for the weekend! Reality hits this is temporary, very temporary by Monday the snow is supposed to return and temperatures are supposed to head for the basement again. Getting Winnie out is a bad idea.

Would you say “China” and “RV” in the same sentence?

Posted 06-27-2011 at 07:18 PM by Zagami

Hardly a day goes by without some reference to China and the damage they are currently inflicting on the United States with less expensive, or flat out counterfeit, products knocked off from American-made products that once drove the powerful domestic manufacturing communities that once drove this great nation to prosperity.

Economists and financial analysts are warning of future distress...

2013 Newmar Dutch Star Multimedia Setup

Posted 03-16-2013 at 07:35 PM by redbaron73
Updated 03-16-2013 at 07:50 PM by redbaron73

I am going to describe my media setup. I had this system working in my previous RV (2008 Fleetwood Discovery 40x), but was not as robust as I am describing. The features streaming features where all available, but the source selection was not. Since the Fleetwood was a RF signal, I was limited in how I could wire it. I setup a dedicated media server that ran off the middle television, and did the wireless streaming. Now that I have my 2013 Newmar Dutchstar, there is a lot of improvement. Below I...
