RE: Seating

All great ideas here. Thanks to all , as I have been thinking about this since our kids have all grown up and now just the 2 of us. I think I am going to go the new dense foam and new "easy slide over" covers, as we want to keep the dinette set up ..

RE: Class C RV Bomb

Morning Folks. I agree that the class c in question looked like a Coachman to me. It really stinks that an RV was used for this purpose. Just another thing to be depressed about..... I hate any bad press about RV's

Winter - Mice Nest location warning

Howdy, could be any type but I have found mice nests down in the engine, under the intake manifold (2002 Ford V 10). Look out for them there. Also couple years ago they ate my paper air filter and it wrecked my MAF (Mass Air Flow ) sensor. Just sayin look out for them and the damage they cause....

RE: Life expectancy of a small C class.... Ex Rental

Howdy, just my 2 cents; Its all a **** shoot. Used, New, previous rental (yes I said new too) I saw your grandkids families have a camper. My adivce is just get into something (I think that rental you describe is about average **** shoot) And Get out there camping with the grandkids !!!!!!!!!!

RE: Roof type - leaks

I found fiberglass best over rubber and aluminium. But for a large spend - suggest the seller conduct internal presurized leak test and report any leaks.

RE: New to us 2006 Winnebago

Just a clarification to my post above. Where I said AC (not air conditioner, althogh that will only work when plugged into the generator outlet in the compartment or campground plug) I mean the shore power cord must be plugged in

RE: New to us 2006 Winnebago

All good and excellent advice here. I have a 2003 winnebago mini 24v. There is no transfer switch. The AC must be plugged in as shown above for the generator to work with the vehicle. But not related to this stuff, check your over head bunk area for leaks on the sides. This vintage winni is subject to insuffecitnt seal at the corner molding below the side windows of the over head bunk. Seveal other owners of similiar yoar winnies have share this with me and they were right. Gotta seal it up with Dicor or some other method. I completely removed the molding and coverd the corners with eternabond then replace the aluminum molding. PM if you want more details.

RE: RVing in the winter

Howdy, I have traveled from MA to FL several times in the dead of winter. You have a few days of sub freezing temps.. before anything actually freezes - especially if you are moving daily. Keep the propane filled up and a small electrical heater is good if you have a hook up. I have found the onboard furnace (2002 Winnebago Mini) suffecient for 1 overnight at zero degrees, perfectly fine to keep comfortable.

RE: How to Fix a Squirrelly Front End?

All good avice above. Just one more thing to add. I suggest you focus your search for a capable shop - To specifically a TRUCK repair facility. Often times businesses that focus on trucks like that have the word Spring in their name. But the few times I have had to get repairs - automotive shops simply do not cut it for campers. Gotta go to a full blown truch shop. After you find one have all worn parts replaced. Then nicely ask to have the specs. HARVARD supplied, used on the alignment. May require purchase of (2) ecentric adjusting cam bushings....

RE: Replacement Black Water Holding Tank

Howdy, Here is a tank company I would not have a black water tank repaired. the bonding may be effected by the holding tank chemicals. I once fixed a tank because I thought it would not be available. It turned out I eventyally found one. All of them are. There are many vendors out there. Google and you will see.

RE: house batterys not charging with engine running

Fairly common problem is that the solonoid that connects the coach and engine batteries when the engine is running, will both charge then when the ignition is off, seperates the coach battery from the engine battery so the coach will not discharge the engine battery. The manual switch brings them together to start if for some reason the engine battery is dead. I have had to change that battery isolaton solenoid on every camper I had (4 over the last 20 years or so) the only one that did not fail whas an old camper that used a solid state isolator instead of a solenoid. I suggest you replace the solonid with one rated for continous duty availabale commonly at NAPA auto parts stores. Do not replace with the same trombetta solonid it probably has. It will not last.

Trip Report - MA to North West Ohio and back

Drove out to Lima OH last weekend. Rented a Uhaul car trailer and drove home with my son's car in tow. What a great trip. Kinda rushed and it was the first time towing a Uhaul but it all went great. My old Winnibago 24v performed flawlessly. Great to have a trip like that after all the preperation and unknowns. Those Uhaul trailers are really good qulity and tow great. No brake controller needed as they use surge hydraulic brakes. Now I can build a race car and take it to tracks with my camper......

RE: Brougham Dodge 1979 engine

I strongly suggest it is a Dodge MB300 chassis. 360 engine with 2 bbl carb. I had several similar vintage class c campers. PM if you want.

RE: 2002 Ford E350 V10 Transmission Fluid

OP here. Thanks for all the advice and suggestions. One thing I am not going to do is have the transmission flushed. I believe this is not necessary and can cause issues that did not exixt. displacing sludge, causing shifting issues and possilble leaks.......

2002 Ford E350 V10 Transmission Fluid

Howdy, looking for recommendations here. About to do my first transmission fluid change. Looking for recommendations on fluid. synthetic or old style? thanks for anything. Planning to drop the pan so I can change out the filter. NOt sure about draining the converter. If it has a plug great. If not I think I may leave it and just live with the pan hold up volume change. I am concerned about pumping it out although I have heard others use that method successfully. Thanks ahead for any replies.

RE: 2002 E.450 c.class starting issues

Howdy, I got an 2002 Ford V10 also. I am just sharing my experience here...Your issue may be different. I had one of the ign. coils fail. Coil on plug here so ther are 10. Mine would run but the idle was rough. I would imagine that if more than one coil failed (or was marginal) it might not start. Also I once had a starting / running problem that was because the Mass air flow sensor failed. Mice ate the air filter and the paper crumbs blocked against it.

RE: Looking for a good RV

I have had 5 class c's over the years: 73 Gladding del Ray, 86 Crossman, 73 Tioga, 94 Tioga, and now 2003 Winnebago Mini 24V. The Winnibago stands out not just because it is newest, the design and attention to detail make it better. The aluminum frame (camper section not the Ford Chassis) make a big difference because it won't rust every place it leaks. I strongly recommend a Winnebago or Itasca product for getting the most for your $.
