RE: Florida Camping

The Keys is heavily policed as far as parking somewhere overnight. They even enforce hitchhiking laws to try and keep riff raff out. The biggest problem with this time of year is Spring Breakers keep parks full and if you find a spot you might not enjoy it. I have been to the Keys and Panama City during S B and it was a ZOO!

RE: Fixed: Reverse lights not working

They should work with ignition on, engine off, BUT set parking brake!! In order I would check- Bulbs/sockets, fuse, back up switch and switch connection.

RE: Car Trailer behind a class A MH

He states MH has "20,000 lb hitch". That is towing limit, NOT tongue weight! Putting 2800 lbs tongue weight would be much over loaded even for storage! Even at 5 mph that he said it would handle moving around a campground. It's a fun idea but they should have made a lift up tow dolly. Much lighter.

RE: Salisbury Steak Casserole

I have been making Salisbury Steak lately just using Campbell's Soup Recipe found online. https://www.campbells.com/kitchen/recipes/simple-salisbury-steak/ It is simple and turns out great! I do add a small can of mushroom stems and pieces chopped up. I also make extra and freeze it.

RE: Rent a tow dolly?

I have driven a lot of motorhomes and most types of semis with trailers but had never used a tow dolly. I drove my Chevy PU 140 miles to look at a Kia Sportage for sale by Hertz Used Car Sales. The car was in perfect condition so I made a deal on it and needed to get it home. (they were great to deal with and even took a personal check and furnished new tag) I went across the street to U-Haul, rented a dolly to bring the car home. The car/dolly towed GREAT, like it wasn't even back there! I ran 65-70 mph most of the way home. My only problem was when I would look in the inside rear view mirror to see that car tailgating me! :)

RE: Brake booster (hydraulic) and master cylinder (1993 P30)

Have you priced it at your local NAPA? Sometimes they are very reasonable on brake parts and it's easier to deal locally if there is a problem.

RE: Microwave dying

A neighbor gave me a high dollar Sears microwave that worked sometimes if you slammed the door. I replaced a $1.50 microswitch on the door latch and used it for many years. Many switches on ebay.

RE: P30 Suspension Overhaul

The p30 chassis is a bad item.Weak suspension. Bad auto park brake. Parts are getting hard to find and can be pricey. I am a gm guy but not the p30.Do not install air bags. Get the aftermarket coils. It is not inusual to spend $5000 on the front end and handling add ond. Moisheh WHAT a totally ridiculous statement! If you replaced EVERYTHING on the front suspension including the tires and rims it would cost no where near 5 grand! Not that you would ever need to! I had a 1989 Southwind 30'er and I replaced the worn out air bags and it rode and handled fantastic afterwards! With air bags you can adjust for weight in rear overhang. Try that with new springs- no options.

RE: How to check brake pad on a Freightliner DP ?

Some drum brakes are exposed and some have dust shields. If dust shields there will be a slot roughly 12 o'clock 6 o'clock for inspection of shoe thickness. Always check for oil leaking, grease slinging, ie bad seal.

RE: Has this happened to you?

Was also an episode of I Love Lucie many YEARS ago where they were traveling and stopped at a roadside motel and the owner (Tennessee Ernie Ford) stole parts off of their car and was selling them back to them!

RE: Has this happened to you?

There was one of these scams exposed back in the low 80's on TV where they claimed they heard a noise from M H rear end and told them it was the differential. M H had cameras under it, guy removed cover and dumped metal shavings in oil. Sold them their old parts back that were marked! Busted! Your best bet is to call the police!

RE: New Ford F53 Chassis

Gee, an engine with the camshaft in the block. How original. And 8 cylinders! Why don't they put one of those 3.5 ecoboost engines in it? Everybody brags about how powerful they are!

RE: Coachmen 24FS towing a travel trailer?

I have seen hitches that have arms that connect to the rear axle. That would take the load off of the frame and suspension and increase towable weight. I don't know where you would look for them. ??

RE: P30 front end upgrades

I have owned 2 P-30 chassis motorhomes, a 1983 Winnebago and a 1989 Southwind. Both were a dream to drive and never wandered. I drove semis for over 30 years so I know the difference. The only thing I changed was bad air bags on the Southwind. You might have too much weight behind the rear axle. My rv always has something behind it. I either have my enclosed dirtbike trailer (approx 2700lbs) or my motorcycle carrier, which is about 500lbs “floating” on the hitch. Its definently a bit more squirelly when driving with the carrier but not that different than when nothing is behind it. What can i do to combat rear weight? I towed a 23' Boat (5000 lb) with no problems up to 80 mph passing/keeping with traffic. I always ran 35 lbs in my air bags. You might have too much tongue weight and need an equalizer hitch for the trailer?
