RE: Driving in windy conditions

16 MPH isn't "windy", thats more like a breeze. You'll be fine. When you get up into the 40-50 MPH stuff things get a bit more challenging.

RE: Insurance declared value of used motor home

Is yours a full replacement policy? If so, they need to insure it for enough to replace it should something happen.

RE: Grease on rear wheels

Yup - sounds like an axle seal. It happens, get it fixed before it contaminates the brake pads (or shoes).

RE: Length of time diesel fuel stays good in tank

I use my farm tractors in the Spring - once planting is done they sit until the following Spring. I've never treated a tank of fuel and I've never had an issue. Run it, you'll be fine.

RE: Possible CCC Upgrade

Williebago, Can you post a picture of the CCC sticker Newmar put in the unit? It would help us all understand better. Thank you.

RE: 2000 Bounder Electrical Problem

Since you DON'T need a battery to keep a vehicle running (the alternator will do that), it has to be an ignition problem. I don't know if its the case with the OPs MH, but some newer vehicles do need a healthy battery to run. Want to ask me how I know? :B Given the vintage of the OPs MH, I suspect it might.

RE: New Chassis Battery time Cat C7

^^^ This. The ones in our current MH came from a heavy truck dealer. They were about 1/3 less than the normal suppliers and no core charge.

RE: RV Tires

We've replaced Michelins with Yokohamas on our last MH, liked them a bunch. We replaced the Michelins on this one with Bridgestones, like them a bunch too. Notice we've never replaced a Michelin with another Michelin. There is a reason. :W

RE: Source Manager II (25) problems

PM member Larry Cad. He has the same vintage American Coach and is an electrical guru.

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

Do you have a plan on when you may have the opportunity to permanently install the TPO roof? Any more thoughts on using it for the siding? Sorry, I didn't see your post last night. I went to bed early. As far as gluing it down, I need to figure out how to get up to the correct height, so I can apply the glue, and still be able to manipulate the TPO without putting air bubbles in it. My truck bed is about 3' off the ground, but I still need some additional height, and trying to use a ladder just isn't going to cut it. Some scaffolding would probably be a great addition, but I'll need it to be 20 feet long, (truck bed is 16'), and I suppose work from one side, and then the other. I still need to purchase the glue for the TPO. Why not work from the roof? I've done (2) roofs recently. Take the material and lay it out over the roof. Once you're satisfied with where it's at roll it up to one end. Next put your glue in a paint tray and roll it on a section at a time, unrolling the TPO on to the glued section as you go. I normally do 4-5 feet at a time. Use a floor squeegee or broom to work any bubbles out as you go. It really isn't a bad job. The first one I did I was thinking I'd need help. When I was ready to do it no one was around so I figured I'd get started. Easy job. When I did the second one I didn't want anyone around. On the glue, check with your local roofing supply house or RV dealer. When I was looking I found the glue was cheap enough, the freight wasn't. My local RV dealer buys it in buckets - they were happy to sell me a few gallons.

RE: need new tires

I found the best deal at our local truck tire shop.

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

My only issue is we're almost at the 3 year mark on this rebuild and it looks like it'll be another 3 years or so before it ever hits the highway - if it ever does. That's ok too I guess. I also enjoy doing a good project, I just wouldn't enjoy dragging it out so long.

RE: C'mon back, honey; Give it some gas!

I wonder how the above situation occurred... I know gravity played a part.

RE: Where did the Gas go ?

I'm thinking return line or back fed through the in-tank pump.

As someone who currently owns electric leveling jacks, trust me when I say HYDRAULIC!

RE: What manufacturers will this recession bring down?

^^^ This. Although things aren't good right now we're certainly not to the point of a recession yet. If we can get a handle on the corona stuff soon I think the bounce back will be quick. By the same token if we don't things might get ugly. I have faith in us as a country winning this battle.

RE: Front Fender for 2000 Suncruiser

Is it fiberglass or plastic? How bad is the old one? If you have anything to work with a decent bodyman should be able to save yours or build you one. Years ago when my Dad was alive he had an Oops with their MH, the rear cap wasn't in very good shape. I certainly wouldn't consider myself a good bodyman but I was able to put his back together - looked good too.

RE: Jensen 212T Radio Problem

I just want to find a better one that will fit right in and hook up with no problems. Size should be a double din. Shop around on Crutchfield and give them a call. Tell them what you have and that you want a plug and play replacement. They will tell you the models that will work. Then you can either order from them or do some comparison shopping. I will say that the people at Crutchfield know what they are doing. I've ordered a few things from them and they always supply installation instructions as well ans any wiring harnesses to make the install easier. Amazon won't do that. ^^^ This. The sizes are standard and there are many plug & play adapters now for the wiring. My guess would be for **much** less than your trip to Alpine House you could upgrade your system and still have $$$ in your pocket.

RE: Jensen 212T Radio Problem

There should be (2) fuses in-line. One keyed hot for power, one always hot for memory; time, pre-sets, etc. Make sure than one is good. I took the Jensen out of ours, I'll check the model number. I may have a replacement if you need it.
