RE: Metal Hood Hinge bonded to Fiberglass Hood-Adheasive ?

3M 5200 will make that repair permanent. I have made that same type of with excellent results.

RE: Tow dolly or not?

The only way to find out if you'll have any sway is to buy a tow dolly and give it a try. Odds are you will be fine and won't have any issues. A tow dolly just seems to be something that more of a problem to store that use.

RE: GAS CLASS A. Vs. Dually

I once owned a 2009, high end, gas class A that road every bit as good my 2015 Silverado 2500. The class A was more comfortable to drive being up high with a large windshield and a larger more adjustable seat. I am far more tired after 500 miles in my pickup than I have ever been in a Class A

RE: Outside Faucet Repair

I agree with replacement. Probably cheaper to just buy a new one. As for removal, the stems have threaded, locking nuts on the back side of the panel it is mounted on.

RE: What Chassis do I have

Tony, there is really nothing special about an OEM converter, Ford doesn't build them anyway, they are provided by one of their vendors. I think the major concern is one sized large enough for your 8-cylinder engine and fits in the space of the original.

RE: What Chassis do I have

Class A's were built on the F-53 chassis. E series were basically vans. So you have a F-53 chassis You can call Ford with your VIN number and they can give you information on your chassis.

RE: Winnebago Destination

I have always been intrigued with rear engine gas motorhomes. Seams engine service may be easier and putting the heat behind you while driving would be a plus. If the engine revs loudly, at least you would be 30 feet away from the noise and a flat floor up front is a plus.

RE: 1994 Holiday Rambler Endeavor 30CB

Not much differance in MPG's betwen a samll class A and Class C motorhome. Class A will be somewhat more comfortable to move aroumd for the passenger while on the road. Most A's have levelors and only some C's do so in my mind the A wins out. As for gas milage and maintenance, they are pretty much the same.

RE: Air-conditioner availability

I work in the HVAC industry and never seen it this had. All the circuit boards, capacitors and relays are made in China and probably sitting off shore along the west coast. I struggle to get air conditioners and even enough parts to make repairs for my customers and this has been an issue for the last 6 months. While a year is a bit much, its not all that unusual.

RE: Newmar Slidout seal

You have a 2021 coach and Newmar replaced the seal twice? Or was it replace by a Newmar dealer? Somthing is just not right. I once owned a 1998 Newmar that I sold in 2012 and all the slide seals were original. You may wamt to have a conversation with Newmar about this problem. Your coach is way too new to have this problem.

RE: 12 Volt reset ??

Not at all unusual find a 12 volt reset will get an inoperable slide to work. It has happened to me before. A different time I lost the ability to read current for L1 on the EMS panel. A reset of the 12 volts and all was well. I for one need to learn that when 12 volt dc things stop working, a simple hard 12 volt reset is the first thing to do before tearing into the electronics.

RE: Winnebago quality

I have a Winnebago and have owned 3 prior RVs Newmar, Fleetwood (pre Bankruptcy) and a REV Products Ambassador. I feel the quality is as good or even better than any of them. The customer service has been better than any I have preveously owned.

RE: Black water tank overflow

Winnebago has always plumbed the 1/2 bath sink into the black tank on the 43 and 45 foot Class A rigs along with both toilets. The grey tank gets connected to the rear sink, kitchen sink and shower.

RE: Adam Graphine ceramic coating

Ceramic coating might last 7 months but I hardly thing is could last 7 years unless you never wash the motorhome and maybe keep it in a garage. If it doesn't last you could never prove it because it's invisible and can't be measured.

RE: A/C Issues??

You say both are set to 75 and the rear is 74. That means the rear is cycling the compressor off because the temp is satisfied and the compressor is cycled off. Just leave the front set to 75 and bump the rear down to 68. You need both running to drop the temp up front where all the glass is. At night you can bump the rear back up because you won't have the sun load on the front of the coach.

RE: Advice please

Body moldings on cars and trucks is installed with 3M VHB tape. If it holds door amd trim molding on a pickup it should hold on an RV

RE: 2012 bounder scare light

While some refer to that light as a scare light its not meant to scare anyone or anything so putting a switch by the bed would serve no purpose. The light is to help when hooking up after dark so the dash switch makes the most logical place to install it and why its over the wet bay.

RE: Winnebago Vista front end noise

I had that happen to me after doing the Cheap Handling Fix on an 09" F53 chassis. Somehow a the factory sway bar would tap the bottom of the coach when coach body would sway a little. I had front air bags on that coach so the fix and the bags didn't play well together. Look closely at your Super Steer sway bar.

RE: Stability Issues

There are a few that that have had issues. Maybe some people expect there class A to handle like a car or SUV and maybe there are some lagit issues with coach handling but I have owned a Newmar 34' FRED, a Fleetwoof 37' gasser, a HR 39' diesel and my current coach 43' Winnie. None of them had handling issues and I never needed to do any suspension work on any one of them.

RE: Plug and play wiring harness for Jeep

You could use the Mopar 82216358AA wire harness made by the manufacturer.
