So when I bought our new to us 2007 Damon Tuscany 4076 I noticed the steering wheel was hard to turn at a stop, the instant the wheels started rolling the coach could be turned. I thought that was just normal, I'd never driven a CP coach before. This spring when I brought the coach of a deep winter slumber the coach had lost all power steering. I was almost pulling my arms out of their sockets trying to turn the steering wheel. Three weekends ago I received my TRW power steering pump. Less than...

So, I'm about caught up. Last weekend, I flew out of the village and over to Homer, drove the 70 or so miles up to Best Truck in Kenai to pick up the coach. I had rented covered storage to help keep the coach out of the weather but the past two months it has sat in the weather at Best Truck, not smart on my part. When I called to let them know that I was coming to pick up the coach and would need to have them bring it around front they agreed. A day or so later I got a call from them saying the...

The biggest thing I do not like about my Tuscany is the invisible "shield" on the front of the coach, it has molded as many of the them do and will need to be removed, that'll be a pain but something I plan on taking care of this summer. Secondly is the cost of any work being performed. The big truck shops seem to charge a premium for any work on an RV and I can understand some things require a contortionist to get to but other things are exactly the same as a commercial truck. Fortunately...

About an hour west of Edmonton the trip took a turn for the worse. While driving the high temp light came on and an alarm sounded, I pulled off the highway, turned off the coach and walked to the back of the coach. I didn't smell anything out of the ordinary and there wasn't any smoke. My wife immediately called roadside assistance, fortunately we bought that with the coach. I pulled up the floor to look at the motor and saw a shredded serpentine belt. After a couple of hours a huge tractor with...

So after purchasing our RV and finally getting out of the finance office we were on the road, late in the day mind you. Neither of us had ever driven a 40 foot motorhome, except for the test drive back to the dealership. I would add that it was very intimidating at first, a lot of low speed wobbling down the interstate, I felt like I was going to butt my head against every overpass! We drove from Tampa Florida back to Homer Alaska, by the time we were in somewhere in the midwest driving was pretty...
