RE: Novice looking for an upgrade to Class C

I've been driving Ford vans since '71, and a Chevy company van, service van in 79 & 80, and 3 different class C Fords vans, since '89, and have never had a problem. Of corse they drive different from a car, but still no problem and no special changes is suspension. Dusty

RE: Fresh water drain

A couple of our low point drains were behind a wood panel held on with 4 screws, inside a wood frame. I added a magnet cupboard door latch/holder and a wood knob to pull it out. Works very well. Dusty

RE: Water pump recommendations..

In our last 2 mh's I've added a 1 or 2 gal bladder pressure tank. It eliminates short cycles, and you can flush the toilet a few times at night without the pump coming on. I know you young campers don't need to get up at night. With the bladder it does not matter what position the tank is mounted in. Dusty

RE: The kid meets the furnace thermostat...

If you do decide to go with an electronic one, it must be powered with it's own battery. RV heating units run on 12 DC and home one use 24v AC for control power. Dusty

RE: Can't figure out how to grease u-joints - '93 Ford E350

It's been a long time, but I think that you can get a connector/grease gun fitting that is smaller, I don't think it locks on, you have to hold it on the zerk square and firm. Dusty

RE: Heat strip

I have a installed toe kick heater in a couple of our mh. They are a very small electric furnace. I hook them to the same circuit as the AC. They use a remote T-stat, which can be programable. They work very well and are not in the way like a portable floor heater. Dusty

RE: Leveling Jacks pro & con

I have what I call a cat's eye leveling bubble glued to our dog house, often times I can just back in and find a spot level enough. Then sometimes I need to put a block of wood to two. No power jacks needed. Dusty

RE: App for fuel / generator storage?

On our previous mh I installed an electric switch to turn off the generator fuel pump, and let id die for lack of gas. Out current mh, the generator has a drain valve on it's carburetor. Dusty

RE: Black tank line

On our current mh the black tank is ahead of the rear axel, with the dump station. The gray tank is behind axel, there is a built in pump to move the gray water to the dump station ahead of the axel. Because of this maybe a cup of gray water will always come out when the cap is remover when getting ready to dump. Because of this I have built a way to dump the gray at a different location. Dusty

RE: App for fuel / generator storage?

Drain the carburetor after each trip. X-2 On our previous mh I installed a switch on the wire going to the fuel pump, turned it off when generator was running and let it run out of gas. The mh we have now has a carburetor drain. Dusty

Leaking outside storage compartment

We have 2 outside storage compartments that had water in them when we got home, drove in a little rain. Is there anything that I could apply that changes color when it gets wet, that I could apply that would help me find where it's leaking? Dusty

RE: Stand Up EZ- Haul Idler car tow dolly info

There is one make of dolly that instead of having a pivoting plate it's wheels caster. I've never used one but, to me, it seems like a much better setup. Dusty

Or use a small stainless hose clamp. Dusty

RE: Louder TV??

I wear hearing aids. Our TV audio goes wireless to my hearing aids. I stepped into someones home once, while there tv was on and thought how poor the audio was, then realized how great mine is to my hearing aids.

RE: Newly converted...

I've seen RVs with 1 whole side a slide. I've wonder how they hold up without becoming a twisted mess. Dusty

RE: Life is full of compromise...

If I remember right the gauge on the tank it self is not adjustable, but I think that the gauge inside the mh is adjustable. Dusty

RE: Ford v10 serpentine belt replacement

A Ford mechanic once told me that Ford said that you didn't need to worry about cracks in the serpentine belts, and not to change them until they started to loose chucks of rubber.
