RE: Cali planning carb tests for Class A

So what would they do with ours? Its an '08 MH with a '06 spec pre-emmission engine in it. No DEF, no DPF, heck we can even burn high sulphur diesel.

RE: Jack Lube

The fluid that you use for the pump. Keeps the seals lubed. This. There is a reason nothing is listed in the manual - it's not recommended. As noted many times before, anything you put on the rod simply attracts dirt and grime. The wiper, when in good condition, cleans that grime off when the rod retracts. Enough grime and eventually that wiper gets worn and all that junk now ends up in your hydraulic system. Nothing good happens when junk gets in your hydraulic system. And yes, as part of my real job I deal with hydraulic cylinders and systems on a regular basis, as well as pneumatic cylinders and systems. There are cylinders in our shop every day of the week.

RE: What the heck? I thought motorhomes lost value fast!!

COVID has screwed everything up. Markets are messed up, valuves are messed up, selling prices are messed up.

RE: Ceramic Waxes

Its hard to beat Nu-Finish Nf-76 Carwax the once a year product...rated number one by professionals auto finishers. Its my preference. Agreed. Our MH is garage kept. I can't remember the last time I waxed it, it doesn't need it any time soon. It still looks great and water still beads up.

RE: 2001 Holiday Rambler

Our 2000 had a Sony that died. You should be able to just match up the wire colors and be good to go.

RE: Tires

^^^ The problem with that is the damage that dual does when it blows. Want to ask me how I know? :B

RE: 3rd Issue of RV Magazine

I'm trying to give it time, my subscription ends in June. But so far it has actually gotten worse each month. I'm trying to be optimistic, but it's not looking good. I looked at the latest issue and thought the same thing - its getting worse instead of better. I haven't seen even one thing yet that made me stop flipping and start reading. Maybe I'll stumble on to something but its not looking good.

RE: 2021 Ford F53 Chassis v8 engine

Its not just the HP difference, it also has more torque and now its running through a 10 speed transmission instead of a 6 speed. So far every report I've seen has been very positive. Well, except from a few current V10 owners that don't want to accept the newer driveline is better. :W There are also chassis upgrades as well.

RE: Spark Plug Confusion ??

I would trust NAPA but not he other stores. However, I'd go by the GM manual before I listened to anyone in a store. The gap should be listed under the hood or somewhere in the vehicle or the manual. I wouldn't just assume the gap was right out of the box. I wouldn't trust our local NAPA with a bottle of windshield washer fluid. Our local Autozone is excellent. Honestly, I trust myself the most.

RE: Thor taking Tiffin ???

Tiffin went to Thor with the idea rather than the other way around. I guess Tiffin made Thor an offer then couldn't refuse. Not sure how having both Tiffin and Entegra under the Thor umbrella will work. If I understand correctly, a couple years ago Bob Tiffin retired and put his son(s) in charge. As might have been expected, quality and sales dropped off such that Bob apparently felt obligated to come back in. After a while of that, Thor buys Tiffin for a reported $3,000,000 so we can probably read between the lines. I say good for Bob, he earned it with hard work and customer care. Beyond that, caveat emptor for future buyers. I think you dropped a couple of zeros....$300,000,000. Al I was thinking $3,000,000 was a little light.

RE: Looking for a class A

A buddy of mine listed his TT with Pops RV, he wished he didn't.

RE: Electric Jacks Lubricant

I think most of you guys are talking about hydraulic jacks. The OP was asking about electric jacks. Big difference.

RE: Do you let you kids drive your motorhome

No one uses ours except us. If we need extra sleeping space we do let people stay in it when it's parked in the garage.

RE: Electric Jacks Lubricant

Based on the year I assume they're Atwood Level Legs? If so, there really isn't much you can do without disassembling them. The gearsets are grease lubed, as is the screw part, to some degree.

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

Fair enough. For fun I just measured the drawers in our kitchen. They're only a few years old, custom built by a friend of ours. The one I measured was 19-1/8" wide in a 19-7/16 opening. He didn't waste a lot of room.

RE: Fiberglass roofs on Winnebago Vista

There was a bulletin on the 2015 Vistas to add Eternabond tape to keep the roof on, maybe the previous owner felt his '14 needed it too?

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

This drawer will be roughly 12" high and about 26" long. I figure I've gained roughly about 1" in width with the wooden slides. That translates to 312 cubic inches more useable space over using factory drawer slides. You have gained approx. 1/5th cubic foot space. Well, there you have it. If you want more storage space, wooden slides will work. An extra 1 inch of width doesn't sound like much, but sometimes i will make the difference between items that will or won't fit. Go figure. Thanks for the figures. Ok! I have finally gotten the other side of the drawer slide glued and screwed into place. Here's a pic of that. Other than going a little overboard with screws, I am happy. After coating all the slide surfaces with furniture wax, she slides like a hot knife through butter. So now I look at the completed shelf/drawer/whatever, with the top slides installed you didn't really gain an inch. That shelf is no wider than a standard shelf with standard under mount slides, or side mounts with a small reveal for the slides to be mounted in. But hey - why do it in 10 minutes when you could take a week! :B :B :B I know, it's more about the project. Carry on.

RE: Ford V-10 vs GM Vortec for towing

Buy which one you like best as either will tow 2,800 lbs without issue.
