RE: DIY-who's tackled Foggy Glass repair?

repair kit, Desiccant foam spacers from Amazon I use 3M Window Weld for the sealer. Richard

RE: Caulking

You can't apply anything over silicone, it won't stick.

RE: Short MH's

This article on wheel base ratio may be of interest. https://axleaddict.com/rvs/Why-RV-Wheel-Base-Ratio-Is-Important Hog wash! If you can't figure out why a coach handles poorly, blame it on the wheel base to chassis ratio. I drive what is considered one of those foul handling coaches. 190" wheel base, 33' coach. It drives and handles quite well. Get the chassis and steering right and they'll all drive well. Yes I still do part time work in the alignment business. Richard

RE: Basement Door Latch replacement

Once you've repaired those latches, make sure and use some silicone spray on them to keep the moving. Petroleum lubricants will attract dirt. Also, when shutting those bay doors pull up on the handle and when shut push with your knee. Handles and latches are all original on my 95 Bounder. Richard

RE: coating rubber roof what have you used

Liquid Roof. is an EPDM coating that bites into the original EPDM roof and becomes one. I used Liquid Roof on my Bounder and was impressed with the produce. It's pricey but I would do it again. Richard

RE: Radiator performance? Life expectancy?

Bob, you mentioned new head gasket. I suggest you have the coolant system checked for combustion chamber gases. The possibility exists for the new gaskets to be leaking. Low cost item. It looks like the general consensus is to just throw $$ at it, no matter what the cost, instead of analyzing the problem. Richard

RE: tires

Michelin's XRV tires gave a lot of problems. Michelin XZE & XZA series of truck tires give excellent service. I've had Michelin XPS 16" tires on my MH for 19 years and no cracks. Before I get beat up on the 7 year issue, I'm on my 3rd set. Richard

RE: DIY-who's tackled Foggy Glass repair?

If the windows are just wet inside, they can be disassembled, dried out, cleaned & reassembled with new spacer material. I've done it. I elected to assemble a square with 2x4s clamped to my bench for reassemble. Make sure and purchase the correct thickness spacer. You want to make sure the 2 glass panes are perfectly matched. You could use your dining table if allowed by the lady of the house. How else may I get you in trouble? If the are foggy (mineral etched) new glass is called for. R

RE: alternator

And the suffix for ANY of these bearings is 2RS meaning sealed both sides. The rear A6000 XX has a pair of Teflon bands on the outside. They fit better. Some European alternators used a 6202 DRE bearing like the Bosch which is utterly stupid with a serpentine belt tensioner. Good bearings use a BLUE-GREEN polyurea grease like MOBIL 7. OK I'm out of date on the front bearings but DD was also used by some manufactures for double seal bearings. 6203DD 6303DD Richard

RE: alternator

Model number does not matter. Whether it's a 3G, 4G or 6G The universal bearing is a part number 6303 ALWAYS replace the rear bearing part number A6000 In my fussy likes and dislikes, I prefer the NTN brand bearing LUA model. Buy new brushes in a brush holder too. Ahhhhhhh, Mr. Wanderer, did you make a typo? The universal front alternator bearing is a 6203DD........ Richard

RE: Towing

Ford rated your 17,000lb F53 chassis to tow 8,000lbs. Fleetwood derated your chassis when they installed frame extensions and installed a 3500lb receiver. If you take a look at the installation of the frame extensions, it may scare you. Have those frame extensions beefed up and add a 5000lb receiver and you'll be good to go with that truck. Richard

RE: Balancing tires, what's best?

Beads will only do STATIC balancing. For front tires you need both STATIC & DYNAMIC balancing, which can only be accomplished with a spin balancer. Richard I don't understand what you mean. what is the difference in static and dynamic balancing? Seems like beads in the tire are by definition dynamic, as the wheel is spinning as they find their home. It means he doesn’t understand physics. Beads/Centramatics ARE dynamic balancers. :):) No It means you don't understand tire balancing and physics. Would you care to come out from behind your keyboard and insult me to my face, big guy? Or are you just a keyboard bully? Static balancing is what beads and bubble balancers do. Dynamic balancing is the balancing of the tire from side to side, not top to bottom. Dynamic balancing is one of the causes of death wobble and cupping tires. Here go educate yourself I watched your video, and I have no problem with what he’s saying because he’s demonstrating the modes of a computerized spin balancing machine. One of the modes is “Dynamic”. He says nothing about any type of dynamic balancing media. If you’re under the impression that a spin balancer is the only thing capable of dynamically balancing a tire, you’re wrong. I’ll say it again, you don’t understand physics, and I suspect you don’t understand what the word “dynamic” means either. If you did, you’d know that saying “Static balancing is what beads and bubble balancers do.” is half wrong (guess which half), and “Dynamic balancing is one of the causes of death wobble and cupping tires“ is completely wrong (it should be “Dynamic imbalance is....”. BTW, the balance problem he was illustrating with the big, wide, off-road tire can be easily fixed with dynamic balancing beads. Provided the problem is strictly a balance problem, and there are no physical defects or damage to the tire or wheel, beads will balance it. No dynamic balancing media can fix a bent, warped, out of round tire or wheel. But then, lead weights can’t either. Even if a computerized spin balance machine is used. :):) Or never mind, ya can't fix stupid. Richard

RE: Dash AC

Then I am mistaken. When I go to get filters for it, the parts houses state that their book sdo not show a F53 but they do show a F550. Oreilly, Advance, NAPA and the rest of the large parts houses have listings in their computers for the F53. It's the noodle head behind the counter that needs to be up dated. Richard

RE: Surface and Terminal Mount Fuse Blocks

Yes I use the type of fuse you ask about. I think the're great. No additional wiring. Just bolt it to your deep cycle battery, hook the cable to it and you're done. Richard

RE: Ford 460 motorhome running hot

"As a result of this, I am a believer in using only distilled water with a radiator." Assuming that you mean distilled water MIXED 50%/50% with the appropriate antifreeze/coolant? (see owners manual) Using deionized, RO (reverse osmosis) or, bottled drinking water is also fine as long as it is mixed with the appropriate coolant. Stay with only distilled water, bottled water can have minerals and DI or RO can have contaminants if not handled perfectly. Oh please. So it's good enough to drink, (actually preferred) but not good enough to put in your radiator. Yeah right. Where did you take your chemistry classes? That's what I thought. What do you think happens to distilled water when it comes in contact with common metals found in any cooling system? (rhetorical question) You need not answer. Chum lee Mr. Chum lee, I had the privilege of working in the ink business, where we did a lot of formulation of water based inks. Lynnmor has it correct. Distilled water is far better for your cooling system and batteries. If you do some PH research, you'll find that distilled water has less solids and reduced the PH of antifreeze far less than DI, RO or bottled water. We actually had RO and a boiler for distillation for some of our fussy inks. The distilled water always performed better for hard to formulate products. Why settle for less when we know what the best is. Richard
