RE: Tires - The 10 Year Rule

My friend had a blow out on a rear in his class C. It tore out the wheel well, destroyed the cabinet above it, and caught the wiring and pulled it right out of the walls. What a mess. Had to leave it in Michigan for awhile but his insurance paid to repair it + brought it home.

RE: Help! Heater core

Went to work on this thing about 9AM and 6 hours later it was all done. There is some questionable stuff about the original installation but I got through it all and it works. So a total of 11 hours and $200 for the heater core so even at 80 years old you can take on a project like this.

RE: Tires - The 10 Year Rule

I replaced my DP tires a month or so ago--2 fronts were 6 years old and 4 rears were 7 years old--with Hankooks. $2500 out the door, BUT, I sold my take offs to a contractor for his low boy for $700 right at the tire store so it ended up costing me $1800 out of pocket for peace of mind.

RE: Fuel mileage

The only hazard is the fool that don't know there is a slow lane over there in the right. And in how many states are you obliged to go 55 when towing. My old Dynasty w/ 450 hp would run 90 all day long in Texas but when I hit CA it was back to 55 because I was towing. I have seen min speed 0f 40 some places but the last I knew we all paid for those roads and if you hit someone going slower than you like guess what, ITS YOUR FAULT!

RE: Fuel mileage

My Monaco with a 8.3 Cummins averaged 9.5 round trip to West Palm beach and back towing a car on a Featherlite trailer. I drive around 65 most of the time.

RE: Saw a unicorn F-150 on the road yesterday!

begum I also towed a 18ft camper trailer behind a new 68 Corvette for 2 years. Started out in Dallas and worked a year in DC then back to Oklahoma City then back to Baltimore. Finally sold it in VA, car and trailer.

RE: Help! Heater core

Got the original part from Comfort Air in Michigan for $197 about $80 less than the other place. Will chime back in when I get the part in hand sometime this week. Hope those following can find this post as it now seems to be hidden

RE: abbreviation lookup or glossary

I call it to lazy to write out the complete word....1/2 the time I have no clue what they mean but I am getting better.

RE: Spouse left behind after death at a Campsite, what to do?

Since my post is gone I suppose you thought something was wrong with my helping a woman in distress without thinking she had an ulterior motive. Why don't you PM me with what was wrong with my post?

RE: Spouse left behind after death at a Campsite, what to do?

I posted before but this also happened to me. A lady posted on here she needed someone to drive her 45ft DP towing a 24ft enclosed trailer from CA to FL. Had a whole bunch of BS offers + people wanting a fortune to do it. I contacted her and agreed to do it just for expenses. She made all the arrangements, I flew out, took 3 days to get back to FL. I started flying back home and got stranded in Charlotte 2 days by a snowstorm. Her husband had died in CA. I never heard from her after.

RE: Spouse left behind after death at a Campsite, what to do?

I dropped out last year in FL. The EMS hauled me off to the hospital. Daughter flew down from MD and drove our DP back home. I am 80 and it turned out to be something minor but I think we have all our ducks in a row. Don't matter if I drop dead they got to figure it out--I won't be here. I just try to keep on moving and not worry about things like that

RE: Help! Heater core

3 more hours and it is out. 5 total. Pretty straight forward but with little more than the Irv pictures it took me awhile because I didn't want to break or mess up anything. That sucker was stuck even after all the bolts were out....there are only 4 as the other 4, which I also removed, hold the metal piece on the back on. Now to order a new one.

RE: Help! Heater core

OK, 2 hours into this project and the rain came. I removed the panel in front of the gen and pushed the gen back as far as it would go. Lots more working room. I then removed the pass side headlight assembly, 4 screws and unplug it. Better access, Not sure on the bolt deal but it appears to only have 4 but since there are 4 smaller ones it may have 8. I have 3 of them out and the housing still don't want to move..... will get back to it as I don't think rain will last long.

RE: Help! Heater core

The RV in those pics is different than mine as it looks like the gen cover lifts up and mine comes out with the gen. But it looks like only 6 bolts to remove the cover. I will try it, stay tuned.

RE: Help! Heater core

Mountain Air I saw that before. BUT it looks like they have the gen pushed in and I had it out--I'll take another look. Labor I don't worry about, those guys got to eat to. I am sure some of the people that paid me, a person that never finished high school, thought I charged a lot of money but fact was I could do the work and there were few that could or would. So now its my turn to not be able to do the work so I don't mind paying.

RE: Help! Heater core

Guess I need to get it pulled out. Looks like a bit to much for my 80 year old self. Looks like the easiest way is to take out the head light and go in through there. Thanks everyone

RE: Help! Heater core

Iryrob I bought that 23 year old unit new and its never sat outside other than when I was using it. I paid it off in 3 years so no more payments and to get one of this quality would probably cost 1/2 a million. That radiator is 16.5X6.25x2.75. Pretty small to cost that much but if I don't find a better deal I'll bite the bullet---don't look easy to do to me!
