Re: onan

I sure hope that you have better luck finding your issue with it than I did. I started calling ours a ghost. For almost a year there would be days that it would start normal and run great no...

Re: Power to weight ratios?

Our 3500 Chevy 190 is a 2006, and I can tell you that the 6.0 engine with the 4:11 rear end is a real power house. We have done plenty of mountain driving, and trailered also. Our RT has never wanted...

Re: Roadtrek Factory Tour

Re: Roadtrek Factory Tour

We took the factory tour about 3-1/2 years after purchasing our new RT. I'm glad we did the tour, but it was dissapointing in some ways. We have been extremely pleased with or 2006 190 Versatile, but...

Re: a/c question from a newbie

You are welcome. Something that I think folks overlook with the RTs is that they don't cool off anywhere near as fast as a car does. This is a home on wheels, and all of the stuff inside when it gets...

Re: a/c question from a newbie

In our RT 190 the front A/C is very capable of cooling the back of the van just fine. If however you decide that you still need to run the rear A/C unit, you will have to run your generator while...

Re: Roadtrek Water Pump is noisy (groaning) when in use

As far as I know Roadtrek only uses the Shurflo water pumps in their class Bs. I have never heard one that was quiet. Most I would classify as noisy. after 4-years of use, we decided to instal a...
