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

I have built several over the years. We currently have two in in our house that I built. I build them with a towel rack on the bottom and a recessed shelf.

RE: Coach Net, great service !!

:) Very interesting that y"all have to go on another roadside assistance service and crow about your service with another company.... Looks a lot like spamming. Have y'all tried posting your good news on CN's form? :) By the way if GS had good service you wouldn't see posts about how bad they are. Pastor needs to go work on next weeks sermon. GS assitance It appears my above sermon went right over your head. :)

RE: Good Sam Roadside Assistance Towing from my home

My 38 ft diesel pusher is inside my pole building and will not start. Will Good Sam Roadside Assistance cover the cost of pulling my RV out of my building and towing it to the nearest capable repair facility? Probably depends on the plan and level of coverage you have.

RE: Raised toilet, what’s underneath

Cut an access window on the front and take a look inside. Can always make a panel to cover over the access window.

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

I spent some time tonight looking at some options for the doors to cover the shelves in the bath wall. Yes, I said doors, with an s. A single door that's about 12" wide and over 6 feet tall, is just not going to work well. So, I decided to split them up into 3 doors, each about 2 feet tall. That will be easier to manage. After spending too much time on options, I settled on a frame and panel design, something like below. This just shows the frame without the panel inside. That means I'll be working on that tomorrow. https://paddleupstream.com/mohorebuild/bathdoorframe.jpg I like to use folding louver doors and make them operate separate for such occasions. I have used decorative doors to accomplish what you are working on. HERE After a little thought, folding doors in a moving rv, doesn't sound like the best idea. Maybe I am missing something. Separate the folding doors and make them into two regular hinged doors. I installed seven shelves in a 6'8" opening such as you are working with, and it holds a massive number of items and storage.

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

Paster Charlie, thats expensive! Bathroom tissue is cheaper than THAT! Going to have to agree with that. Plenty of toilet paper can be bought for way less than $20. You are building a one-of-a-kind custom RV and going to cheap out on toilet paper? For shame, for shame, for shame. Toilet paper was not available with the one- or two-hole toilets back in the day. In addition to expense, there are 2 additional issues, (no pun intended). Oh, I guess that would be magazines, not catalogs. Lol. First is, the saint I am married to, deserves more comfort than a catalog will provide. Second, I use water and not paper for keeping things clean. How about a one hole'r with a bidet? Yeah! How about a one hole'r with a bidet?

RE: First front tire blow out....

All vehicles I have owned with cruise control had an OFF or CANCEL button with the same group of buttons on the steering wheel. Tap it with finger. Would you have released the steering wheel with one hand to tap the cruise control button when the steering wheel needed both hands to control it? Richard No need to release wheel...only takes one finger to press off button on wheel.

RE: Camper basically chopped in half by tree

I have been in a campground several times and had to leave out because of it flooding. Often at a depth of 10-20 feet above the camp lot. They have a good monitoring and warning system in place.

RE: Coach Net, great service !!

Have been a Coach Net member for years but have never had to use it. On Christmas Day, I got my motor home stuck in mud next to my cousins house. Called Coach Net, very nice, friendly person ansered. After insuring them I was ok, and the RV was not a hazard, they assured me they'd call me back in 15-20 minutes after they found a tow company. Called me back and said they had found a tow company and they were on the way. They continued to call back every 20 minutes or so informing me of the location of the tow truck, with a final call once the truck was onsite. Chimas Tow in Sacramento got me pulled out. The driver was very nice and was very cautious in making sure no recovery damage occurred. I can't recommend this company enough. I couldn't have been happier with the service I received from Coach Net and Chimas Tow.I highly recommend them both. Glad it worked out for you... I had a completly different and unpleasant experience a few weeks ago. I was on the side of the road just feet from traffic for 29 hours. I have been a coachnet customer for over 25 yrs... not anymore. I wrote the CEO/President of Coachnet and never got a response. I contacted their director of marketing and did get a response, acknowledging that my description of the events was correct... but no other actions were carried out or planned by them. Here is my letter to the CEO/pres. Mr. Ostlund, Yes, we were on the side of the road for 29 hours and this was no rural country road. It was US 1 in Maimi-Dade county Florida with cars and trucks whizzing by at 60-80 mph literally a few feet from the side of our motorhome. To say I'm disappointed in the service and response from Coach-Net would be an understatement. On Friday December 3rd we left our home in Apollo Beach, Fl to spend a few nights at Key Largo before going to Key West. At about 14:00 my coolant temperature rapidly rose and the alarm went off. I moved to the side of the road. This was at Mile Marker 122 on US1 south of Homestead, FL. The infamous 18 mile stretch. The road here is a narrow 2 lane highway with the lanes separated by Jersey barriers. The shoulder is very narrow and in many places not even wide enough for a car, fortunately I was able to find a spot that we could actually get out of the travel lane by about 5 feet without sinking into the mud . After assessing the situation and finding a catastrophic water pump failure, I call Coach-Net at 14:30 for assistance. The first person I spoke to asked a few questions and then passed me to a technical staff member. We discussed the situation and he said he would get a tow truck to the scene. I was told it would be about an hour before the truck would arrive. Well, that wasn't even close. At 19:30, a full 5 hours later, a truck shows up, the driver looks at the situation and says he isn't able to tow a motorhome due to the configuration of his truck. I call back Coach-Net and after some discussion they start to try to find another tow truck. After a few more hours, they decide that it would be good to inform the Florida Highway Patrol of our situation. A trooper comes by and provides visibility to the oncoming traffic with his emergency lights. Another tow company was finally dispatched and when they got to the scene the driver said he could not tow from the front, but would tow from the rear by raising the coach by the trailer hitch. I told him and pointed out the label on the hitch, that the hitch was rated at 1000 lbs tongue weight capacity and that the coach weighs 42000 lbs and that there was no way I was going to allow him to even attempt to do that. If I hadn't stopped him, I'm sure there would have been tens of thousands of dollars damage. He left and soon afterwards, the trooper had to leave . It was now after 03:00 Saturday...over 12 hours since I called in the issue. I called Coach-Net again. They decided there was nothing to do at this late hour and would resume their (feeble) efforts in the morning. I was told I'd be contacted at 07:00 . 07:00 comes and goes and a little after 08:00 I get a call and they are going to resume trying to find a wrecker. I was promised call backs on status, but never received them. I had to call back myself to find out what was going on. Finally at 16:30 Saturday a couple of guys show up and said they had it under control. These guys were super professional, efficient and demonstrated outstanding team work. After a short period of time, during which they showed me what they were doing, they had us all hooked up and ready to go. But, as we were staring to pull out, one of their airbags on the rear axle failed and in interest of safety, they decided to unhook and drive back to the shop to get another truck. They returned with a different truck and reattached the motorhome and we were finally off the side of the road at 19:30 Saturday. A full 29 hours after the time I called in for assistance. When we got to the repair shop they backed us into position and unhooked. As I was thanking them for their outstanding service , I asked why they hadn't been called earlier. They told me that they were not on Coach-Net's vendor list and were called in only in dire situations. These guys were by far the best. You should have them at the top of the list for towing large RV's. They are Edwin and Kevin from American Eagle Towing. The other companies that showed up should be removed from your vendor list. The reason I am sending this letter to you is to make sure you are aware of how poorly this call for emergency assistance was handled and that hopefully you will take corrective actions to prevent this from happening to someone else. Some thoughts to consider : - make sure the vendor you dispatch understands what is being towed and make sure they have the equipment to do so. - the second tow operator obviously had no experience in towing a motorhome and if he had tried to tow from the trailer hitch as he had wanted to do, he would have caused extensive damage. It is likely that if it had been another person in my situation they might have taken him for his word and their motorhome would have been destroyed. You need to thoroughly vet your vendors to help prevent unnecessary damage. - we were in a potentially very dangerous situation on a heavily traveled road. Police notification by your team should not have taken over 10 hours. - When your staff says they are going to call back in a certain period of time, they need to do so. Other than a couple times when they did call back as promised, in general, I had to call back and wait on hold to get status. - Scrub your vendor list. You obviously have incompetent service providers that are wasting your time, my time and their time and at the same time destroying your reputation as a quality service provider. - A 29 hour wait to get EMERGENCY service is not acceptable under any circumstances. Try to put yourself in the situation that we were in and see what your reactions would have been. I look forward to your response. Sincerely, Joe Hastings I suspect service such as yours is the reason that CN does not have a public forum on which members can post about their service.

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

On a more serious note, throw out the trash and get the wife a nicer place to take care of some private time. How about a nice custom wooden toilet? Joking, of course. Just raise the platform a little more and make it a "One Hole" toilet with a Sears catalog laying to one side. Where am I going to find a Sears catalog? HERE
