RE: Hankook tires for DP

Good deal - and another reason to always check with your local tire shop. When I had our Bridgestones installed the dealer took our old tires in trade - he has a good market for them. We have many farms locally and they use them for the field trailers. It's a win for everybody.

RE: stay pluged in or not

Unless we're traveling ours sits in the garage, plugged in, 24/7.

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

That looks good. I'm sure it was addressed somewhere in the last 100 pages or so, but please remind us again where the couch and chairs are going.

RE: Fixed it

Last sentence - a short somewhere? Maybe one you fixed along the way hunting this down and didn't even realize at the time.

RE: Sewer smell

^^^ This. When you open the windows you're sucking the gases through the traps. Leave some water in the sinks and you should be good.

RE: New again, remind me

Avoid any post-2007 diesel. Or find one like ours; built in 2007 as a 2008 model but with a 2006 spec engine. Ours is even pre-ultra low sulphur diesel. My nieces husband is a diesel mechanic, more than once he has said "never get rid of that one". Fortunately after 14 years it still looks, acts, and drives like new.

RE: Gen leaking fuel

X2 and I had one Did you check the fuel hoses and connections? The rubber hoses can rot or wear from rubbing against something. X3. Not on a generator but recently had one go on my lawn tractor.

That looks nice.

RE: Electrical Problem

Check the air cleaner. Back then there was an issue with water getting in the intake. Ford had a TSB out on it, it worked. Normally that would just make it cough and sputter but if it's gone on long enough it could have compromised the air intake enough to do what you're saying. Other places to look would be fuel filters and possibly even the fuel pump.

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

We're all interested in the MH stuff, and we've been pretty liberal in off topic stuff as normally its semi-related and swings back to the original topic within a reasonable timeframe. The swings off topic are getting more frequent and going farther off topic. If there is nothing to report on the original subject we certainly don't need a report on beans. Its OK to NOT post something every day. This thread is coming up on its 4th anniversary, there is plenty enough to re-read if you feel the need.

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

When you talk about kidney beans and chili it makes me think that you have lost your focus. Yes. This is an RV forum, not a cooking show or a personal blog. Any more off topic stuff will be deleted.

RE: 2007 bounder 35e rear slide

Is the thump the clutch kicking in because the slide has reached full extension? In other words, is it just a normal noise? If I hold our slide buttons too long that is exactly what happens.

RE: Gas Vs Diesel Yah-Yah-Yah!

Even if power were the same, efficiency is much different. I went with the 6.7 Diesel over the gas primarily due to fuel economy. The cost in the truck was not vastly different but the mileage sure was. With diesel costing more per gallon typically, the fuel economy no longer really holds up well. So what if you get 20% more MPG but a gallon costs 15% more. Unless you are putting a million miles on it, you will never break even. Locally we've flipped back to diesel being less expensive than gas.

RE: Alfa See Ya

Sorry you found out the hard way. Alfa was once the number 1 Diesel motorhome builder in the mid 2000's. But, due to poor construction and other design and quality issues went out of business after a few years. They are NOT a Motorhome for people that cannot repair their own Motorhome. Doug Well said, sadly for the OP.

RE: Need recommendation for a replacement inverter

While I'd agree with the thought behind that it sure would be easy to take a look and find out.

RE: Slidout room not working...

On electrical stuff, many times clicking with nothing else happening is a bad ground. It could be many other things but thats where I'd start looking.

RE: Driver side “old” windshield into a different coach

With a little help you could probably replace it yourself. Check Youtube to see if you can find a video. Years ago I used to swap out the fixed rear windows in pick-up trucks for sliders - it literally was a 2-3 minute job. I think you'll find the windshield in your MH is mounted using the same method.

RE: Would you switch from Class A to Travel Trailer

Exactly

RE: Would you switch from Class A to Travel Trailer

And then there is common sense. There isn't an intelligent person alive that would let their loved ones ride in a camper being pulled down the road. Lets face it, in any type of accident a pull type camp will not win - period. They're just not built that well. That's not a knock on them, it's just a realistic statement - they're simply not built for it. It's bad enough in a MH, but at least you have a decent frame around you. With a pull camper, of any type, what could possibly go wrong. :E https://pickuptrucktalk.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/06/trailer-wreck-photo-1.jpg Agreed. But then I don't recall this thread discussing riding in a trailer...:? It sure seemed like it. No way are you going to be driving the Volvo and getting up to stretch your legs, make a sandwich, use the bathroom, etc - unless you're riding in the camper. :w

RE: Follow up- Turbo goes out at 37,000 miles

Your trip home was all down hill with a 35 MPH tail wind??? :B
