RE: Anyone interested in 83 Pace Arrow Tear down and Rebuild?

Just for everyone’s information, a day or so ago a 1976 FMC like mine that had the drive train and many other parts/systems upgraded or cleaned up just sold on the Bring a Trailer auction site for $151,000. I am glad Len and Robert, the two people that did the work, didn’t “stick a fork” in it! I did the same drive train upgrade that was done to that coach. I didn’t do it looking at resale value. I did it for my own use and enjoyment of the coach.

RE: Anyone interested in 83 Pace Arrow Tear down and Rebuild?

I spent from 2010 to 2014 removing my engine and transmission and cleaning up and adding three layers to the firewall and installing a more modern engine and transmission. I also replaced the original gas stove and oven with an induction cook top and convection oven. And guess what - my coach is older than his! What happened afterward? I have put 60,000 miles on my new and improved coach. I keep passing the new coaches on the grades! Sure glad that I didn’t “stick a fork in it”!!

RE: Anyone interested in 83 Pace Arrow Tear down and Rebuild?

I wanted to check out a set of strip led's, to light up the counters for cooking and preparing food, etc. Here's what I found on Amazon. These have a string of 42 lights end to end, but they are a double set, so they have a total of 84 per strip. http://paddleupstream.com/mohorebuild/stripleds.jpg Those look like the ones I have under the cupboards in my house to light up the counters. They work very well. Here is a larger picture, and every set of 3, (6 lights total), the strip can be cut. Included are a bunch of extra ends that can be soldered to the cut strip if needed. Both ends come with a connection, so they can be plugged together if you want more than a single string in length. http://paddleupstream.com/mohorebuild/stripleds2.jpg

On my coach, the toilet and kitchen sink go into the black and the bathroom sink and shower go into the grey. Based on our use patter they fill at a comparable rate.

Our kitchen at home is all drawers below the counters and is great. All except one narrow space for storing cutting boards etc on edge. Small drawer above it.

With just vertical loads, I would just screw.

RE: Anyone interested in 83 Pace Arrow Tear down and Rebuild?

I've spent some time the last couple of days looking at different options for a couple of things that will be needed during the finishing of this build. One of them is a bottom freezer, top refrigerator. They are made in a 12 volt dc compressor version, that will actually fit in the area that I have available for that purpose. The wife and I much prefer a bottom freezer, since we, like most people, are in and out of the refrigerator way more than the freezer. http://paddleupstream.com/mohorebuild/solardcrefer.jpg I have run a a bottom freezer model for 15 years and love it. Also a 12 volt unit. Specs are available HERE! I have run a 12 volt bottom freezer unit for 15 years and love it. So much nicer to get things into and out of it. What brand/size/model do you have? Does it have a Danfoss compressor? I hear they are kind of the cream of the crop. Thanks. Mine is a Nova Kool. Yes, it has a Danfoss compressor. Novakool.com. Their primary market is in boats so most of their dealer are boat places.

Yes, the oven needs to be anchored to the shelf and a stop created to prevent it from slowly extending due to vibration while traveling.

RE: LED or other upgrade for 12v fluorescent light?

I did not change the fixtures. I just removed the innards of the fixture retaining the switch if it had one. Then got some 8” and 10” strips depending on the size of the fixture and wired them into the existing fixtures.

RE: Anyone interested in 83 Pace Arrow Tear down and Rebuild?

We have three of the 9' NuWave2 Precision Induction cooktops and the most we paid for anyone of them was $50.00 at KMart. One was purchased new in box at a yard sale for $15.00 and the other one was a gift. They are super to use and super safe around old folks and children. We use them in the home and Motor Home. Wouldn't leave home without one. Who u callin' old???? Lol.. Thanks for the info. I guess I'll have to look around a little bit and see what our options. are. https://www.qvc.com/NuWave-Precision-Induction-Cooktop-w-9%22-Hard-Anodized-Fry-Pa.product.H295412.html?colorId=000&sizeId=000&ref=GBA&cm_mmc=GOOGLESHOPPINGFEED-_-GShopping%7CL%7CBrandProduct%7Ccooking+dining%7Csmall+appliances-_-Cooking+Dining-_-dm_41632031026_pla-833827043740__H295412-000-000&cm_mmca1=m&cm_mmca2=41632031026&cm_mmca3=pla-833827043740&cm_mmca4=H295412-000-000&cm_mmca5=pla&cm_mmca6=816971433&cm_mmca7=Acquisition&cm_mmca8=Acq&cm_mmca9=EAIaIQobChMIzu6sgvWS7QIVC4iGCh0pmAeQEAQYASABEgKjd_D_BwE&cm_mmca12=Vendor&cm_mmca13=Cooking+Dining&gclid=EAIaIQobChMIzu6sgvWS7QIVC4iGCh0pmAeQEAQYASABEgKjd_D_BwE&TZ=EST This the one we use. Be sure to scroll down and read the description of its features. This seller includes the pan we use the most.

RE: Anyone interested in 83 Pace Arrow Tear down and Rebuild?

I also went to induction cooking in my 1976 FMC. I much prefer it to gas cooking in small quarters. What is the diameter of the heating area of the cooktop? Someone who uses one, has had problems trying to make a pair of grilled cheese sandwiches on one. The burner is about 8" in diameter. Half of the grilled cheese was fine, the other half was not fried. Has that been a problem for your frying? I normally use a 9” pan or similar sized pot without issue. There is/can be a significant difference in quality or operational differences between units. After not being happy with two earlier ones, I am happy with the Nuwave portable unit that know have. Since it doesn’t have hot air/fumes flowing out around the pan, if the pan doesn’t conduct heat very well the outer portion will be cooler. We do cook in a large pan very well but usually it is something that is stirred. In your case, you could put a cutting board on top of the burners and put a portable induction unit on that. When not in use it could be stored on its edge in a narrow, tall rack like for cutting boards. I think a key is to have a quality unit and quality pans.
