RE: Plastic Liner inside Grey Holding Tank??

A cut out disc would have remained rigid rather than a slimy plastic clump. OP stated We have a 2006, 36', Class A Coachmen Aurora MH. This week our grey tank drain became plugged and what I was able to remove from the drain was a rather large clump of white, slimy plastic 2006 -- 2021 15 yrs a disc would be a very slimy piece of plastic I guess by that logic, the 15 year old tank that the supposed disc was cut out of, and made from the same material, would also be a slimy mess. I think he would have described it as a round disc rather than a large handful/clump.

RE: Plastic Liner inside Grey Holding Tank??

Easy to explain if it was in the black tank. Being in the grey tank probably means it came from the factory. I guess there is a possibility of transfer if both grey and black valves were open at the same time. Some people have done that to transfer waste from the full tank to the less full tank when out in the boonies. If it came from the black tank originally it could be anything that went down the toilet accidentally.

RE: Best place to sell class A motorhome

I should have added to my story about Craigslist. Both of mine sold to people outside of my area. In fact, I live in central Florida and one sold to a couple out of North Carolina and the other to a couple out of Pennsylvania. If your coach is at all unique, and desirable, by buyers, they will find the listing. I also got several emails from dealers which just let me know that my listing was working. I had offers for trade, wanting me to finance, etc. Just sort those out. The serious buyers will ask the right questions and if they need additional pictures of anything, send it to them.

RE: Best place to sell class A motorhome

Do you want to SELL it or do you want someone else to sell it. If you want to actually take the time to sell your RV, Craigslist works great, as long as you know how to sort the tire-kickers from the buyers. I've sold two RV's on Craigslist and never had any hassle at all. I got several email inquires but it was easy to sort out the ones that showed promise. I sold both of mine for well above NADA and both sold at my full asking price. Just make sure that you list everything the coach has, and all of the extras that go with it. Include a lot of pictures. Tell why you bought the coach and why you are selling it. Produce all of your records and manuals. I added an extra $3000 to the sales price and allowed the new buyer to pick the brand of tires that he wanted and I had them installed and balanced. I did this because the question I was asked most often was about the tire age. I also payed for the new buyer to spend two nights at a local RV park to learn all of the systems. Naturally these were all done after the sale was completed but they showed that I had confidence in my RV and was willing to back it up. Again, I got full asking price which was well above NADA. It's your choice. You can keep reducing the price until you give it away, which is what a lot of people do, or you can put up with a few tire kickers and save yourself thousands. Your choice.

RE: Slide toppers

I took mine to a marine canvas shop. They were able to match the fabric and make exact replacements.

RE: RV selling

I used Craigslist and sold two of my RV's for my full asking price, well above NADA prices. The difference is do you think YOU can sell your RV or do you trust someone else to get you the best price. On my last RV I determined how much I wanted, which included all of the extras that went with the RV. I then added $3000 to the price to allow for new tires and a hundred for RV park rental. I knew from experience that the one thing that all potential buyers asked about was tires. My listing allowed the new buyer to pick ANY type of tires that they wanted and I would have them balanced and installed. My last buyer wanted Michelin SNOW tires. Not the easiest thing to find in Florida but I had them shipped in. I also included one night's stay in a local RV park so that they could learn about the systems. Obviously all of this was done after we had closed on the sale but, as I said, I got full asking price and the new buyers were happy. This was just something that set my listing apart from others and the buyers were willing to pay more to buy a coach from someone that was willing take the time to insure their happiness. If you want to give your coach away, there are several places that will gladly help you.

RE: Rear View Camera

Some monitors allow you to make the switch right from the front, without accessing the back of the monitor.

RE: How to Remove Window ??

When mine was repaired, they took the entire assembly out and then took the individual panels loose for repair. Once out of the coach, apparently it is easy to disassemble it further.

RE: Had our catalytic converter stolen

I thought it was interesting that one of the most targeted vehicles for Cat theft is the Toyota Prius. As an ultra low-emissions vehicle, the Prius has a catalytic converter that contains more of the rhodium, palladium and platinum that render pollutants harmless. A replacement can cost as much as $3000.

RE: Had our catalytic converter stolen

All electric cars will cure this problem but the slime will find something else to steal. What do you think the VALUE of Electric Car Battery banks are????? Thousands of dollars. Doug And they just drop out of the bottom. Kinda heavy tho. :)

RE: Squeaking From Motor

The chirping sound occurs when your alternator kicks on and off, which causes additional drag on the belt. Alternators are not charging at their full capacity unless needed. When they start charging, the drag increases, which can cause a chirping sound. When you initially start your engine, it takes a lot from the batteries and they need to be topped off, hence the alternator kicks in. If you want to dig around underneath and on top of your engine, you can buy a can of belt dressing and thoroughly spray the belt all over and let it dry. Then start your engine and see if the noise goes away. Belt dressing is not a fix, but in some cases it does quiet a slipping belt for a short time.

RE: Squeaking From Motor

The idler is a fixed pulley at the top. The tensionor pullet is on a spring loaded bracket that you have to release to change the belt. As the name indicates, it keeps the tension on the belt. You use a 3/8" breaker bar in the tensionor bracket to release tension on the belt.

RE: Squeaking From Motor

The serpentine belts will get "glazed" and tend to squeak from time to time. When the bearings go it is usually a noise that is continuous. You will use the longer of the TWO belts listed for the W22 chassis with the 8.1L engine. Since you will need to replace the belt, it is not a bad idea to replace both the idler pulley AND the tensionor pulley. This is not a really difficult job to do but it does need to be done from the top for the idler pulley and from the bottom for the tensionor and belt change. I've change the belt at the side of the road. Takes about 15 minutes to do. I would get a Gates belt instead of the cheaper Dayco belt. It will last longer.

RE: Holes in exhaust

Any muffler shop that has a lift available for large trucks. Most muffler shops for cars will not have pipes that are large enough in diameter nor any way to work underneath your rig.

RE: Driver side “old” windshield into a different coach

I believe you will find a number for the windshield in one of the corners. If they are the same on both windshields, then they should be interchangeable. Then all you have to do is find someone to change it near where you are. Just keep contacting windshield replacement services until you find one.

RE: Fish bowl cooling class A

I have a Monaco gasser but for what it is worth, your problem may be the lack of insulation above your cockpit. On my unit I had to remove the front cabinets because of another issue. What I found was that they had put in fiberglass insulation that had shifted and compressed. I had areas where the front cap actually had no insulation covering it at all. I removed all of the fiberglass insulation and replaced it with spray on closed cell foam that I bought on eBay. This is a two part foam that expands when it sticks to the surface. This made a huge improvement in keeping the temperature down in the front of the coach. I also made sure that the roof above the cockpit was painted white. You might see if you can see behind your overhead cabinets and check the condition of the fiberglass insulation.

RE: Fish bowl cooling class A

Try a portable AC unit that is vented to the outside and directing air right in to the cockpit, in addition to your two roof top AC units.

RE: Banks Performance Module

Do a Google search of "2002 Cummins 8.3L calibration module" and there are several that pop up.
