RE: How long does a P32 radiator last?

No overheating. I’ll inspect carefully for leaks. After the heater core failed I consideeed replacing it preemptively.

How long does a P32 radiator last?

I have a 2002 Winnebago Sightseer 27c with an 8.1 engine. I replaced the heater core a couple of years ago. As far as I know the water pump and radiator are original. It only had 40,000 miles on it when I bought it, so it is doubtful the PO did anything to the cooling system. I'm considering some preventive maintenance on the cooling system. Radiator? Hoses? Water pump? What does everyone recommend? If it matters, it has 90,000 miles on it now. I don't want to get stuck making repairs on a trip.

RE: Gen shuts off unless “Start” held down

And make sure there is not too much oil in it. I don't fill mine to the full mark any more.

RE: Previous Owner Painted the Gelcoat - What to do?

I have often wondered how well the 2 part marine topside paint would work. Supposedly it hides the brush marks. The OP would have to remove the graphics first, then paint. It would be a lot of work, but not $15,000 worth of work.

RE: Michelin vs Toyo tires

A comment and a question. Weigh the coach and match the weight per tire to the inflation chart for your size of tire. My Winnebago went from almost undriveable using plate pressure to pretty good. What is Michelin's recommendation re age before replacement on their motorhome tires?

RE: Ft. Pickens; water over road

It has been flooded, but open, the last several times I've been there. I am trying to find a seasonal pattern. I do expect sand when I camp near the beach, but do not necessarily expect to have to drive through a road flooded with salt water.

Ft. Pickens; water over road

I love Ft. Pickens campground, but I don't love the salt water on the road. I've got reservations mid April, but I'm thinking of canceling and going to Big Lagoon. We bring a motorcycle as our "toad" and I don't want to ride it through salt water. Does anyone know the water over the road situation at Pickens in April?

Headlight dimmer switch 2002 P32

My headlight dimmer switch will not switch the headlights to dim. Is the dimmer function controlled by the multi function turn signal stalk (see below) or something else?,-Cruise,-Windshield-Wiper-Washer)?filter=283 Thanks for your help.

RE: Removal of gas strut

I ordered 2 more and they just came in. I will work on it this weekend.

RE: Removal of gas strut

Good idea. That will make them easier to rip off!

RE: Removal of gas strut

I already had the bottom one unscrewed. It has to come off no mater what. Then I twisted the top one off. I then put the bottom metal piece in a vice and twisted it off without bending it. I think I have 2 or 3 more to replace. I really can't complain; they are 20 years old.

RE: Removal of gas strut

After the first one it easy from then on. Unfortunately, mine aren't constructed like that. They have a plastic "cap" that looks like it should be pried up to release the ball. I tried to pry it off with a screw driver. I guess I need to pry harder! In the past I have just ripped them off, but in the process bent the holder. by jspringator, on Flickr

Removal of gas strut

I can’t figure out how to remove a strut that holds open one of the cargo doors. The legend on the strut looks like the cover should pop up and it should release. But I can’t get the cover to pop up. Any suggestions? 2002 Winnebago sightseer.
