RE: How old is too old?

Well, I am almost 77 and feel I can drive the RV just fine. My Mom died at 98 when she slipped on the ice and broke her hip while getting in her car to drive a 40 mile trip. While I can drive just fine and am physically pretty strong, my wife has several medical issues and I can barely get her in and out of the camper. We want to take a trip to Montana this summer to see her sister but I am afraid we may not be able to because of her health. It is not always the driver that forces us to give up the RV! :(

RE: Bouncy new shocks

Sounds to me like the shocks are not doing their job, probably to light for your MH.

RE: Biting Insects

We love to go to Texas in the winter. We usually go from Galveston to Mustang Island, Have only encountered bad mosquitoes in one small area, other than that no problems with insects.

RE: Death Wobble Continues ....

It seems to me that either the alignment is wrong or it has worn or loose parts or both.

RE: Oil change on the road

Dealers that are equipped to work on trucks or truck service centers would be able to do it.

RE: How Bad Is "Bad Enough" COVID-19

Sorry to hear about your friend, I hope she recovers OK from the virus! I also hope you can stay well and safe until you can find a place to get the vaccinations! Best wishes to you and stay safe.

RE: sewer odor

Could the odor be from a faulty air admittance valve(s) under the sink? The odor from a gray tank can be just as nasty as a black tank. I agree, I have had trouble with those valves under the sink and the lavatory. They are cheap to replace.

RE: gas mileage

I would say 7 to 8 mpg, with toad might be .5 less.

RE: Slide Seal Conditioner that doesn't "stink"

I've never put anything on my slide seals. The RV is 12 years old the seals don't look worn or deteriorated yet. I agree, we have a 2001 and have never put anything on the seals, no problems yet.

RE: Tire pressure and temperature recommendations

I run what the MH manufacturer recommends on the VIN/GVWR tag. Have never had a problem. I have had each axle weighed and that had the same result for the pressure recommended.

RE: Jack Lube

I have used WD-40 but I prefer silicone. WD-40 is a good cleaner and protectant from moisture but it is not a very good lubricant.

RE: Cost to repair or replace half a windshield?

Definitely check with your insurance agent, a $2000 deductible in comprehensive seems way to high but if that is what you asked for that is what it will be. I have $250 on comp and $500 on collision. I just had the windshield in my pickup replaced because of a rock chip and it cost me $250. Several years ago I had one side of the windshield replaced in our 1987 Itasca replaced and it cost $250.They had no problem getting a windshield even for that older MH. I doubt that they can repair a crack as long as you have.

RE: Mold in Storage Area

I believe there is a product that will kill mold. I can't remember the name but it is mixed up and sprayed on the mold. Try googling mold remover and you may find some products that will help you get rid of it. Good luck!

RE: Towing

I believe it is legal in Iowa but the length limit is 60 feet. Not sure what the brake requirements are. Don't get in any place that you have to back up. Have a friend that got in a tight gas station and he had to unhook his boat that was behind his fifth wheel to get out of there, don't know how he got the boat hooked back up.

RE: 2001 Fleetwood Southwind Front-end sags

Glad we could help!

RE: 2001 Fleetwood Southwind Front-end sags

I believe I paid around $360 like in the link that enblethen posted. It was well worth the cost to have it sit level and get rid of those blasted air bags! Click on the link he posted for you.

RE: 2001 Fleetwood Southwind Front-end sags

Chevrolet and Workhorse chassis using the P-30 and P32 used coils with air bags. The springs from Henderson are variable rate springs based on your actual front end weights. Improves handling when done along with proper wheel alignment. Yes, definitely look into the Henderson Super Steer springs. I replaced my original springs on my 2001 workhorse chassis and it was the best thing I ever did to it, No more air bags! You weigh the coach and the front axle and they will tell you what springs you need. Now it sets level and drives better! I installed them myself, it was not fun but I got it done, then had the front end aligned.

RE: Cost of engine replacement or rebuild

I worry more about the transmission, wheel bearings, belts, hoses, etc. than the engine. Our MH is low mileage (under 30k) but it is 20 years old so many thing can fail from age!
