RE: Vibrations on 92 Fleetwood - P30

The part missing is called the grease fitting. I highly doubt the previous owner broke it, it most likely either got knocked off, came loose and fell out, or broke when the U-joint went. As far as changing the other ones, as long as they're smooth and taking grease I wouldn't change them, but that's your call. I'm glad you're back on the road.

Add another vote for driveshaft/U joint. And another good job on the English!

RE: Pickle on My Entry Door Grab Handle

SuperBus, I have the solution; I will take one for the team and trade our mint 1 owner Kountry Star for your London Aire. And seeing as I'm such a team player, I won't even charge you for the swap. Please let me know how you'd like to move ahead with this and we'll make it happen. :B :B :B Am I helpful? :h

RE: why am I still getting this

The site has been screwed up for 4 months. lots of different errors. l Nobody cares!!! The part about being screwed up for 4 months is true. The part about no one caring would not be accurate. Believe me, we are as frustrated as everyone else and behind the scenes Admin is doing everything possible with our limits. It is a software issue and there is only so much we can do. It does seem to be better depending on what portal you sign in with, although that seems to move around too. Hopefully someday soon this gets cleared up.

RE: MH accident in gas station!

^^^ Yes and no. Accident? Not really. Incident? I'd go with that one. An accident is many times caused by external forces beyond our control. An incident is normally something we bring on ourselves, normally caused by poor judgement. I hunt; in todays hunters safety training they stress they are no longer called "hunting accidents", they're called "hunting incidents". I agree with their language. That clearly will not buff out. Bummer. The way the axle is twisted I'm thinking they'll be shopping for a new one vs repairing that one.

RE: Weight Distribution Hitch? Newmar

Also, many of the newer WD hitches also incorporate sway control. It would be worth it for that alone.

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

You do realize you can get other work done while the glue is curing, don't you? It's ok to multitask.

RE: Norcold 682 propane lockout?

My sister-in-laws fridge did the same thing. I can figure a lot of stuff out, I did everything I knew to try, finally called in a buddy who is a certified RV tech. Sounds crazy but the final result was the cooling fan on her 120/12 volt converter had failed. The converter was over heating and dropping voltage. Without the full 12+ volts the propane solenoid wouldn't open. I put a new cooling fan on it and it was fixed. That was 2 years ago and its still going strong today.

RE: To Buy or build

In todays world the issue of bad VOC, glues, stains, etc is pretty much a thing of the past. Every company building them has regulations they have to follow, and eco friendly is a really big deal. Also, before we bought our first DP I too considered converting a bus. I went to an auction looking at one, walked in, looked around for about 5 minutes then had an honest discussion with myself - what the heck was I thinking! We ordered soon after. With that said, it's not my money but I'd vote for buying. Order it the way you want it and enjoy.

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

My Newmar has a Brite Tex roofing and I like it. A single sheet covers the entire roof. My former motorhome had a rubber roof and it required constant maintenance to keep clean. Same here. We've owned our current MH over 12 years now, the Brite Tek roof still looks new. I'll also add in those 12 years its probably needed about 10 minutes worth of maintenance, total. I'm a big fan of Brite Tek.

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

Looks like it should work. Just be sure to run some Gorilla tape on the edge where it loops back underneath. You don't want that edge rubbing on your membrane.

RE: Sticker Shock for general service

Agreed. As noted above, some of our stuff technically was over due time wise. I ask the shop about it, they did an analysis on the fluids and gave them the green light. These maintenance schedules are based on OTR truck miles, not typical MH duty stuff. In our case the MH is garage kept so the environment isn't an issue, and unfortunately we haven't been covering the miles we used to. On paper our ISL has a 12 month or 20,000 mile oil change interval. Not a chance I'm dropping 28 quarts of oil at 5,000 miles just because it hit 12 months.

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

What are you going to use for roof material and how do you plan on fastening it? Normally either rubber, TPO, or fiberglass is glued down then the edges mechanically fastened. I'm not seeing how you could do that with your design. There just isn't enough beef on the edge to allow mechanical fastening, is there?

RE: Sticker Shock for general service

We just had our ISL done; lube, oil & filter, plus they tested the transmission fluid, hydraulic oil, and coolant as technically they were past due time wise but not mileage wise - $469.22.

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

When I was rebuilding our TT I just bought a table saw. It was under $100 at Lowe's. About 8-10 years ago I put my hand through a saw that didn't have a guard. I've used saws my entire life, bad things happen fast. From that day forward I won't use any saw without a guard. I got lucky and made a 99% recovery, but I won't make the same mistake again. Not to mention I still have the table saw which I use often. :B

RE: I got the shakes

If the bead wasn't seated that would lead me to believe there was no air left in the tire first. Sounds to me like a bunch of incompetent clowns did your tires. Wow, just wow.

RE: Run Flat on back dually

Toyo has an excellent reputation, and normally they are less $$$ too. I also never recall reading about any unexplained blowouts or premature cracked sidewalls either.

RE: Why was this thread closed?

2 reasons; The question was answered... and The question had absolutely nothing to do with Class A Motorhomes. Now this one is closed too. :w

RE: Run Flat on back dually

Wow, a Michelin blow out, whooda thought. When our Michelin blew, parked in our garage, I replaced them all. In the OPs case I'd at least do the 2 new up front, but honestly if it were me I'd replace them all - with a different brand too. If one went the rest are probably going tick, tick, tick.
