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

If you had done the entire roof project all at the same time instead of screwing around with the other silly stuff the glue would certainly have been good. I hope for your sake it's still good. How many years ago do you start the roof anyway, I forget now. Obviously somewhere between 1 and 5+ years.

RE: Power Gear air bag vs leveling Jacks

The air leveling system works well. My only hesitation is, back when our friends had theirs, is there was still some movement in the coach you don't get with jacks. I am extremely sensitive to movement so it bothered me - I get motion sick real easy, if you aren't then it's a wonderful system. I know some units have both - air to level then jacks to stabilize. I would think that would be the best of both worlds.

RE: 96 Georgie Boy Water Tank

Also check the overflow. Many times if you fill the tank 100% it can hit the overflow, which will create a syphon and you'll lose a bunch of that 82 gallons. In every MH we've owned (5 of them now) I've put a T in the overflow line and extended a vent that effectively stops the syphoning from happening.

RE: Severely damaged windshield … is yourMH totaled ?

^^^ More like thank God we don't have to - yet. :E Wait What? If I had a functional MH that I had cared for, but could not replace the glass I would think I had to. Of course I have put enough miles on more than a few vehicles to understand that windshields wear out. You missed the point - thankfully we can still get glass for most vehicles still on the road.

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

The title asks if we're interested in the rebuild of a motorhome - many of us are, or at least we were 5 years ago. I have ZERO interest in a fiberglass test, which has ZERO to do with rebuilding the motorhome.

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

Curiosity. I just want to know where the failure point is. Nothing more, nothing less. So what does that have to do with rebuilding a motorhome??? It seems like the answer is "nothing". I'm not trying to be mean but if you spent more time working on it and less time screwing around with stuff like this you would have been done years ago.

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

What exactly is the purpose of this test??? What wheel are you trying to reinvent?

RE: Floor Wax - ZEP

You can have a body shop TRY color sanding and see if they can remove the top "yellow" layer of paint and get down to the original white color. This is all assuming that the paint is thick enough to allow color sanding without going through to the body panel primer. Keep in mind that this was a floor wax and there is no telling what damage it may have done to the original paint. A body shop should be able to try a small area to see if it the paint is salvageable. I highly doubt an '02 Bounder has full body paint - it would be a white fiberglass sheet so no paint to sand or primer to rub through too. That said, sanding and buffing might help a little but I fear it's most likely just yellowed with age. Unpainted 20 year old fiberglass won't stay new forever.

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

^^^ Ecoboost with the 10 speed auto is the real deal. This one was the 6 cyl 3.5L engine. There are newer versions of this van with a rating of 27 on the highway with a 2.5L 4 cyl engine. @ $4.50 to $5.00 a gallon or more, mileage makes a significant difference on long trips. We bought 268 gallons of gas on this trip. The moho would have been 687 gal figured at 8 mpg. I think you'll find that engine is in the Transit Connect, the smaller one. The Transit (the bigger one) only has V6 options. Trying to keep this somewhat Class A related, I've often wondered why they don't offer the 6.7 PowerStroke in a Class A.

RE: How to get rid of mold/mildew smell in basement compartment

I like the ozone generator, enough that we own one. Every year when we open our camp we run it for an hour, seems to work well.

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

Just paid $5.459 for Diesel near Myrtle Beach, SC. Hurts, but I didn't by my coach to set at home. Still have about 1000 miles plus or minus before we get back home. People are still out, I have had some trouble getting sites on the weekends. We're at $6.50/gallon for diesel locally. We have a ~1,600 mile trip coming up. We're figuring easy math for the budget @ $1.00/mile - just insanity. That same trip 2 years ago would have been ~ 30 cents a mile. Good times these days. :R In any case, back on topic, obviously Fulltimin won't be taking his project on the road with him.

If you had planned right you could have taken the motorhome! :B

RE: no charge at batteries

2.8 volts is dead, as in dead, dead. Do you have the Magnum Inverter/charger or just a converter/charger? If you have the Magnum run the batteries through an equalization cycle and you might save them, maybe. I do that about every 6 months (maybe a year?), we got around 9 years out of our original batteries. If it is the Magnum Inverter/charger, to do an equalization cycle you push and hold the charger on/off button until "Equalization" shows up on the screen.

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

Normally, when brushes are used up, people just throw them away. It would seem time would be better spent working on the MH instead of taking the bristles out of junk brushes, but your project, your time I guess. :S

RE: Renting out your RV

A few years back I rebuilt a TT that I ended up renting a bunch. I kept my list of renters pretty tight and it worked well - I never had a bad experience. That said, it was a $5k TT, not our motorhome. I had many opportunities to rent our MH in those days too - NOT A CHANCE!!! So it's up to you, how much do you value your property? Are you comfortable with the risk/reward? Your call.

RE: class a in storage for over a year

My gas tractors sit for about a year, never had an issue.

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

No need to go overboard there. Run a little 120 grit paper down the cut, put a piece of guerilla tape around the edge then glue the TPO down. Works great, and yes, I have done it myself so I know it works. My RV tech buddy, who literally grew up in the business gave me the tip.
