What about tires? Any recommendations?
Your results may vary at your napa but they can normally get parts next day from the warehouse excluding sunday.

If you need additional help let me know.

That 98' has 16" wheels and should be a pretty easy find at just about any tire store.

For truck tires I like Michelin BFGoodrich. Those are my preferences.

You will find cheaper tires than those that is for sure.

Happy hunting!

I just put new Michelin tires on my car. I will look at both Firestone and Michelin.

Thanks so much! I do appreciate your help and am feeling a bit better for the moment.

My husband can be forgetful and as I said before, is disabled, part of which is a problem with the brain which he doesn't realize, so sometimes we get into situations like this and thank you for being kind and not judgmental like that other guy.

As Turbs said above the Firestones are a good tire as well.

Cowracer: Being a licenced mechanic since 1987 ( here in Canada it takes five years of training to get a licence not like in the US where you can just go and write a test to get your ASE cert.)flushing of brake system is very important more so on vehicals that sit for long periods of time, as brake fluid absorbes water like a sponge! This will cause calipers to rust internally and seize up.True 1100 may be a bit high but the statement of honest mechanics being few and far between??

John3333, it might be different in the US. The second estimate was $800 and my husband will do it himself for around $200 on parts. Dealers jack up prices terribly on repairs.

I looked up similar RVs...the Shamrock about that old for sale...Most go for about 18k if that helps you feel better. So after putting in some repairs, you prolly still got a good deal (not counting customization and comfort items, of course). Continued good luck to you.

That may not be entirely true, but they are getting harder to find. It just seems like the good ones are being outnumbered by the shady ones. A person just has to "be on their toes" when it comes to finding good, honest mechanics. We have an excellent shop here called GMAX which is one of the best I've ever seen on honesty and work.

May be different in Canada, but that is not all that prevalent down here.
