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

Anyone use a sous vide for cooking? Do you like it? Any words of wisdom in it's use? In case you don't know what that is - Here is a link. Click I do it sometimes..... I made my own cooker using a crockpot and a temperature controller I got on ebay for a few bucks. Works good. Many restaurants use sous vide

RE: Is there any difference in DRIVING a gas class A vs diesel?

I've been toying with the idea of trading in my gas Bounder for a diesel powered coach. Do they ride any smoother (my wife's pet peeve), do they handle much differently on state highways and interstates, and do they really make much difference for towing? I've had two class C's before moving to the A, and each coach has been bigger than the last, and for me, better. There are a lot of used diesels on the market right now and I was wondering if it would be worth trading again to get a better ride and livability. Thanks for any insights. Egor Lots of good info posted... here's one more. In the Class C the driver sits quite aways behind the steer axle . On a gas Class A, teh driver generally sits on top of the steer axle or a just a little behind it. On most Pushers, the driver will be sitting in front of the steer axle. Makes driving a bit different.... I like it.

RE: Class A motorhomes with a Ford V10 Chassis

I had a 1999 V-10 in 36' Pace Arrow Vision. So it was pretty heavy and I pulled either a toad or a 20ft enclosed trailer. 150,000 miles with only 2 minor issues--- idler pulley bearing for serpentine belt went bad at about 10k miles and the starter relay died at about 15k miles. Both covered under warranty and easy fixes. Great trouble free engine

RE: Portable Smoker Ideas??

If you already carry a grill for normal grilling, look at using an A-maz-n tube or maze---- I have the tube and it does a reasonable job using my standard table top grill. Link to their website

RE: Whats up in Charleston?

I was there the day before the earthquake, it was closed the next day. I'll list a few places we have stayed or visited this year. Blowing Rock, Linville, Grandfather Mountain, Linville Falls, Banner Elk, Spruce Pine, West Palm Beach, FL, Bristol, TN, Knoxville, TN, Pigeon Forge, TN, Saluda, NC, Lake Lure, Chimney Rock, Hendersonville, Forest City, Fayetteville, WV, Beckley, WV, Oak Hill, WV (where Hank Williams died),Morgantown, WV (home of Don Knotts and WVU), All over central PA where the 911 memorial is located, Harpers Ferry, WV, Winchester, VA and we have 2 months to go. Would take me all day to mention each water fall, river, and mountain we have visited. I will soon be 80 so I got to go while I can and saw plenty of color last trip. Been home 2 days. Congrats on your adventures this year! We too have been out and about . NC mountains in June and August, then Maine in between the NC visits.. Now in the Florida keys. Just making sure we are reasonably cautious.

RE: Rv length

Thanks for the ideas. I always call, but most places are not answering phones.I wish the RV books would list the length of the sites. We have been able to get in some shorter sites as we can frequently back up until the tires are at the end of the pad if there is open space behind. It is more difficult this year as reservations are required, and there is not always a person to help. Stay healthy! In general, it the length of the RV... i.e the trailer ,motorhome or ?? Not including the tow vehicle, or in the case of motorhome, the toad. If you are uncertain and the park doesn't answer, use google earth to view the park. Google earth has a measuring tool ( it looks like a ruler on the tool bar) that you can use to measure sites, roadways, etc. That's what I use when I plan to visit a new to me park.

RE: Oil change

I changed out all my drain plugs to a Fumoto Oil drain Plug no more mess. Just pop on the Hose Kit and put into your drain vessel and turn it on. Check out the one that fits your motor,some times they come as a kit. Also Check Their Website to find what you want. That's how I did it when we had an F53. Why would you wait 2 yrs to change oil ?

RE: Chip a v10

When I had a 1999 V-10 , I put on a complete Banks package which included headers, a new air filter/intake, an engine chip and a tranny chip. Worked great ! Drove that for 13 years over 150,000 miles on that coach. No issues at all. Did it myself-- pretty easy

RE: Oasis Hydronic water heating

Most likely the summer loop pump has failed. On the Oasis panel, are there any fault lights illuminated ? On top of the panel, there is a bypass switch, turn it on and see if your hot water returns.

RE: Back tire stuck in wet ground

I got out once by jacking the vehicle and putting firewood in the hole. Since we were camping firewood is what was available. If you have leveling jacks it should make it real easy. Yep-- did that once too

RE: Winnebago buys Newmar

I gave up a Winnebago Vectra/F-53, and special ordered a Dutch Star/Spartan. (The F-53 chassis was a disappointment) And, got cheated out of the all-fiberglass roof that I ordered on my Dutch Star. I would welcome a Country Coach made by Winnebago. How did you get "cheated" ? Did they just screw up the order ?

RE: Booking Camping sites for 2021

Yes-- we've booked our summer stay in Maine next summer already as well as our 2021/2022 winter stay in the Keys. No more spur of the moment especially with a big rig

RE: Best Camping along the Gulf Coast

The Gulf Coast has over 1600 miles of shoreline over 5 states . If you'd narrow down a bit, it would help the responders.

RE: Carb Overhaul, Pointless?

For $40, I'd buy the replacement and then clean up the old one at your leisure and keep it as a spare.

RE: Get me out of here! PLEASE

To get out of there, get on US-441/23 and go south into Georgia. You didn't say where you're going next. If home to Florida stay on US-441 until you pick up I-75 at Macon or you might prefer to stay on US-441 all the way. There's a book called Mountain Directory Before doing any more mountain anything the navigator needs to read it. That is the route we took last month heading back to FL. 441 to Macon, thus avoiding Atlanta , then 75 back the rest of the way. Easy drive most is 4 lane highway.
