RE: Deisel handling

A diesel doesn't handle any better or worse. We've owned (3) gassers and (2) diesels. I would NOT agree with this statement.

RE: Making the move back to a Class A

In that timeframe, I'd look at a Newmar, and probably not much else. Our experience with them has been that good, dating back since 2000.

RE: Deisel handling

Our last gasser was a 2000. In 2003 we bought our first diesel. In 2008 we bought our current diesel and currently have no intention to trade. Yeah, they're normally that good.

RE: '06' monarch House electronics not working.

Is the 12v cutoff switch on?

RE: Tire pressures

Maybe I just need to reword what I’m saying I’m saying on a long trip I’ve got a tire pressure monitoring system and when I see the pressure getting up to 110 psi do you guys continue letting it to rise or do you readjust it back down to the starting point and continue on with your trip. I was just concerned that reaching 110 psi which is the maximum PSI when you’re driving and it gets above 110 is that a good thing or a bad thing. That 110 psi is the cold max. The engineers have a safety factor built in. That said, the best advice has been to weigh the MH and adjust according to the tire weight chart. One more thing, if heat caused the rise cooling will also lower it. If you started at 90 psi and it gets to 110 while driving it won't stay there forever. If you're seeing that you might want to check your pressure senders. No one added any air while you were driving so eventually the original pressure will return.

RE: generator auto start for charging?

Good advice on getting with Winnie to learn your MH. Replacing the batteries on a 2019 already is waaay too early IMO. We got (I think) 9 years out of the batteries in our current MH. Probably cared for you should get at least 6-8 years out of your batteries without much trouble.

RE: Month/Year of Mfr

Look on the wall beside the drivers seat. Ask to see the Manufactures Statement of Origin {MSO}. But if it's only a second stage MSO wouldn't that have only the completed coaches' build date, not the chassis date? Many first stage incompletes MSO's are replaced with a second stage MSO for finial builds. If the final build MSO didn't carry over the chassis build date (not required) all the second stage is mandated to carry over is the VIN which just decodes the "year". Obviously the chassis would have been built before the coach was completed so the first stage MSO really doesn't matter.

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.
