RE: Cost to repair or replace half a windshield?

Windshield deductible is usually much less. Call your agent

RE: Cost to repair or replace half a windshield?

You will have some numbers on your windshield which can be used to find a replacement and have it installed. There are several RV glass businesses that specialize in windshield replacement. I used RV Glass Solutions and they handled everything with the insurance company. Of course since I live in Florida my cost was zero. They have a webpage with contact info.

RE: Too old to drive ?

What I find strange is that some states do not care about your physical ability to drive any vehicle. With my airplane, I have to get a flight physical every two years and get a review with an instructor pilot every two years. I also have to be current to carry passengers. With my Florida driver's license, it is valid until I am 82 years old. There was no physical exam, not even an eye test, and it was renewed online and good for 8 years. In Florida this allows me to drive ANY RV regardless of length or GVW. The funny thing is that I can legally drive a 45' motor home but to drive a motorcycle I have to get a special endorsement.

RE: Too old to drive ?

Since you live in Florida, I believe that Lazydays RV, near Tampa, used to have courses for RV drivers. I would think that one of their instructors should be able to evaluate your abilities and advise you the best.

RE: Replacement RV Slide Out Topper

The toppers on my Monaco coach all had a scalloped flap that hung down on the front edge when extended so the length of the topper fabric was important.

RE: TFT Code for ScanGauge 2 ??

Try not using the VPW protpcal and use the CAN protocol. The Allison 6 speed uses CAN (Controller Area Network) protocol and the command goes something like this, 07E2F1221940. This breaks down to 07E2 = command to the TCM, F122 = mode and 1940 = transmission PID code. The key to this is 07E2 part... and what the TCM returns to that command.

RE: how long should B6 Bilsteins last?

I believe that the B6 Bilsteins have a lifetime warranty to the original purchaser so just keep your paperwork and go out and put on some miles.

RE: Fulltime 5er to MH - Help?

You MAY be able to find a used Prevost RV that has the optional 20,000# hitch. Might not be any available in your price range altho it may be worth the effort to see if one is available for sale.

RE: Spark Plug Confusion ??

AC Delco 41-101 plugs are available from Amazon, and other suppliers.

RE: Spark Plug Confusion ??

This website is one of the best for Workhorse part numbers and cross reference numbers. The 41-101 plugs work fine. Oemy's

RE: No power

Welded contacts is sometimes the result of rapid cycling of the electrical contactor. The 15 power outages certainly could have contributed to this situation. Contact damage can also occur with voltage that has gotten too low to properly hold the two contacts tight.

RE: Towing

Many States allow triple towing, with some restrictions. Triple towing

RE: 24K plugs

Coat the spark plug porcelain with dielectric grease before you put the boots on and they will not stick the next time you want to take them off.

RE: Looking for a class A

Where is Pops RV? You can usually do a search online about a specific business and check for complaints/reviews.

RE: Window fog

Suncoast Designers in Hudson, FL repaired ours. WAY less money than new windows. Al In addition to great service, they have hook-ups for you to stay overnight if you have a lot of windows to repair. They do start work at 7AM, or maybe a little before. ;)

RE: Ford V-10 vs GM Vortec for towing

Since you asked about towing, you need to bring up a torque chart for both the 8.1L GM engine and the Ford V-10. You will see that the GM engine has a basically flat torque curve starting at about 1200 RPM. The Ford comes close to the peak torque of the GM engine but it requires a lot more RPM to accomplish the same task. Basic parts for the 8.1L GM engine are available at any parts store and may are the same parts used on some current GM engines. The Ford V-10 is as difficult, or as easy, to get parts as the GM. The Allison transmission is superior to every other transmission used in RV's of the era that your are looking at.

RE: Window fog

I think you are talking about the window seal "snaking" which is pretty common on the SE-GI windows. The name SE-GI is printed on the glass. There are several companies that specialize in repairing this window issue and there are even websites and materials to do the repair yourself.

RE: Ford V-10 vs GM Vortec for towing

The Allison transmission/GM 8.1L is what I used to tow a 3200 pound toad for over 100,000 miles, mostly in the Western mountains. No issues with the motor but do not expect good mileage.

RE: Replace TV

Just be sure that you can hear the TV when it is mounted, especially if the TV speakers are open to the back, and you mount the TV in a cabinet with only the face visible.

RE: Class A travel without interstates

I use google maps if I'm not sure of a route. Usually hairpin turns etc. Using street view you can cruise to your heart's delight. Over 100,000 miles on our coach and less than 15,000 are interstate miles. I love old farmhouses and barns, my wife loves old churches. You won't see either traveling the interstates. Nothing on the Interstates cept traffic and asphalt/concrete. No thanks. You'll be pleasantly surprised at what happens in the small cities. Your travels will take quite a bit longer though. We don't travel more than 150-200 miles in one day and stay a week or longer when we stop. Use the toad to visit the many many things you'll see in the out of the way places......Dennis I agree 100%. We never had a destination on any of our trips, other than East or West. We never made reservations and by traveling the back roads we were surprised to find that we always had a place to park for the night. For us the "journey" was the experience since the destination might be any of the small towns we drove through. We especially like the weekends to travel the back roads. We would stumble on a local festival or a large flea market or something else that peaked our interest. We also were able to meet many people that we never would have met otherwise. If we just wanted to get to a destination, why not fly instead of using the interstate highways? Flying is definitely cheaper than using an RV just to get from A to B.
