RE: Diesel fuel prices … how is that affecting your RV travel ?

One good option is the old Merle Haggard song...."I think I'll just stay here and drink".

RE: Fuse location on engine a/c compressor

I have a son in the business. The new AC machines can evacuate and recharge a system without the compressor running. They record what they evacuate and the difference between that and the recharge would tell you how low the system was. Full recharge info is usually printed near the ports. However, to verify all this you need high and low pressure readings which require a running compressor. It seems odd that a company would do all this though in a system that has a compressor that doesn’t work.

RE: Tow vehicle

I run a 2000 Rexhall Aerbus with a V-10 for a while. I towed a Chevy Suburban from Atlanta, GA to Bozeman, MT and back without any issues. Over the yrs I also have owned gas RV's with the Ford 460 and some with the Chevy 454. The V-10 was superior in all ways.

RE: Stranded in Marietta, GA

Make sure air dryer is good. Sometimes the filter in the dryer will disintegrate and mess up the dryer. Sometimes it can be cleaned up , and sometimes it needs to be replaced. If you need a new air compressor I’d locate a new one and have a mobile mechanic replace.

RE: Class A repaint cost any ideas

My next question does anyone know this model of class a this is I know it’s on a freightliner chassis thanks https://i.imgur.com/C5LomNTl.jpg I have bought some RV's from copart with salvage titles.....fixed them up, used them for a while and then resold them. There are a lot of fees, and additional hoops to jump thru, to get a copart RV licensed and saleable, and likely varies by state. I live in Georgia. I had to document repairs, get estimates from 2 RV dealers as to what the value of the RV was worth, get it inspected, pay sales tax twice, because I am not a licensed reseller. Some times the fees were more then the cost of the RV, but most of the time I ended up turning a nice profit and enjoyed the use of a RV until it sold. Never had a buyer ever complain about any of my Rv's, and I always made sure they knew they were buying a "salvage title" vehicle.

RE: Inverter

You are correct Doug. I should have suggested the test first instead of replace.

RE: Inverter

First thing I’d do is replace the communication cable from control board to inverter.

RE: Stability Issues

Over the years I've had 7 different Class A's. As a general rule longer and heavier is going to be more stable. Gas models...35ft and over have been very stable...Diesel models 38ft and over have been very stable. I've owned 32ft gas model that was a bear with side winds and truck traffic passing in the wind. Had a 35ft diesel that was bad. Drove a 40ft Bluebird Wanderlodge for awhile. It was heavy and had a tag axle. It was a dream to drive.

RE: Engine blew white smoke died then generator

If your fuel tank is low and you’re on an uneven surface it’s possible you have sucked air from fuel tank or bad fuel (water or other contaminants) from the bottom of the tank. It’s possible your gauge is off a bit. On my diesel motor home my gauge will show a quarter tank one minute and the “E” shortly after. See if you can get some fuel delivered and try bleeding the system. If that don’t work you’ll have to have it towed in.

RE: Rexhall aerbus vs Fleetwood pace arrow

If they are in similar condition, choose the Rexhall. I am currently driving a HR Endeavor diesel. It is basically a cheaper version of a Monaco Diplomat.
