RE: Rooftop Air Conditioner Issues

Seems odd it works good for 7 days then quits. Could it be something as simple as it's freezing up after a week, then works again after its thawed?

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

Our house is built with floor trusses between the first floor and basement. Yours are close to the design of what we have. Ours runs a 28' clear span and yes, they have sagged some over the years (about 1/2") but structurally they're sound.

RE: Pac Brake Question

Just me, I've never know one to work as you originally described. The way it works now is how I've always known them to work.

RE: Good Bye Class A forum!

The 7.6L Ford part was obviously a typo. That's what I thought but, the OP is sure it's a 7.6 engine. That has me confused. Yup - but in the very next post he said it's a 7.3. :B

RE: Good Bye Class A forum!

^^^ I think Mercedes would be surprised someone put a Ford engine in their Sprinter chassis. :W Must be a prototype. :B Unless I'm missing something it sure looks like a Ford chassis. Looking at the chassis specs I suspect the OP may mean the new Ford 7.3 engine??? The specs say "Ford gas engine" and "E450" so it's either that or the 6.2L. I certainly hope msmith comes back to clear up the confusion. Seriously though, just because the Class A is gone doesn't mean anyone has to leave. Everyone is welcome here. Nice looking rig too! You’re losing me? What confusion? I bought a Nexus Viper 27V which is on the Ford E-450 Cutaway chassis. It has the 7.3 liter V-8 engine which was new last year. I read your original post wrong, I read it as you were saying it was on the Sprinter chassis - my bad. The 7.6L Ford part was obviously a typo. As you have noted, its the Ford E450 with the 7.3L. I'm real interested in your opinion on the engine. I've heard a lot of good things about it.

RE: class a diesel maintenance

Only issue we've ever had was the shop using sooo many protective mats it took a minute to pick them all up! Not once, ever, have we had as much as a fingerprint in ours. We're happy with our shop.

RE: Cruise control not engaging

^^^ This. If not that check the brake switch itself. Also check for a blown fuse. It should be something simple.

RE: Where does the little red wire go

Red is normally power. I would suspect it goes to a keyed hot in your fuse panel. I could be wrong, but I'd also guess a call to Banks would also answer your question.

RE: BACK UP CAMERA

We sell THESE at work. Our customers seem happy with them, and they're in abusive environments. They also offer wireless models too. I can't speak on these as we've never sold one to my knowledge.

RE: Forty Foot Gasser

We had a 35' gasser, it was fine. As to the V10 vs new V8, from everything I've read I know which one I'd go with. I'm hearing a lot of good reports on the new V8. I'm actually considering one for my next truck.

RE: 88 Ford 460 keeps dying

I would think your vehicle came with a fuel pump in the tank. Someone may have installed an external fuel pump also. There is a certain flow rate for each engine that needs to be met so engine can run at WOT. Pressure may be fine but if the flow rate is not there the engine will bog down. As noted earlier, ours had a pump in the tank and another one on the frame rail. We replaced the one on the frame rail mid-trip after we were towed in. It was better, but not 100%. Once we replaced the in-tank pump it was back to 100%. Others here have also noted an in-tank pump, the OP originally said he didn't have one, and I haven't seen anything where he has acknowledged the possibility there may actually be one. The in-tank pumps of that vintage were known to be problematic too.

RE: 88 Ford 460 keeps dying

Plugged catalytic converter? Also, are you 100% sure there is no pump in the tank? Our 1990 had (2) pumps, (1) in the tank and (1) on the frame rail. Both were known to be problematic, we ended up replacing both for about the exact symptoms you describe. Seriously, you'd head out on a trip and it was a guessing game on if you'd make it or how long you'd go before it acted up. Not much fun, for sure.

RE: Fan Motor 2007 Mandalay 40B

Stop leak is just a band-aid, not a fix. Get it to a hydraulic shop and get it fixed right. We rebuild hydraulic pumps and motors at my real job, your fan motor should be an easy fix.

RE: Fuel additive recommendations

Ours only has a 100 gallon tank but all we do is make sure it's full when we park it in the Fall. We've been using this method successfully since 2003. I do the same with my farm tractors, and they sit a lot longer than 6 months. They're outside all winter too.

RE: gas millage

Back when we had our V10 it had a sweet spot speed-wise where it got better mileage at - going from memory here, 70 MPH than it did 65 MPH. At 70 it would stay in overdrive going up hills and do a decent job maintaining speed. At 65 it would drop gears, the RPMs would climb, the speed would drop, and it would struggle to regain a reasonable speed. I'm sure on the flat ground going slower would have returned better mileage. Where we traveled 70 was actually better than 65. Again, that was going from memory. It might have been 65 vs 60. The point is slower isn't always better. Keeping your driveline at its most efficient point the longest/most you can should return your best mileage.
