24K plugs

Decided to pull the spark plugs after haven been in for 24K. This is in a 1994 Fleetwood Southwind Storm 28ft 454 w/4L80E Surprisingly they looked very good after 24k miles.... I did however break a boot 1/2in from the end off cylinder #8. Darn....replaced those wires at the same time as the plugs. Engine is now at 68,295 Purchased new 8.5mm heavy duty Belden ceramic wires. The old ones were Belden Edge 7mm wires (non ceramic). I also use 1500F heat shield cloths on the wires. The plugs were AC Delco coppers. I replaced them with Autolite coppers. After 24K miles the gap had only opened barely .001 (from .035) With exception of the distributor itself. Everything in the ignition system I've replaced.

RE: Best mouse trap?

We took the trap far away from the trailer and released it. So it would be someone else's problem. Not to mention that it may violate state regulations. I know that in Tennessee, if you trap any kind of wildlife, TWRA regulations require you to either release it where it was trapped, euthanize it, or get a permit from TWRA to relocate it. That is to prevent the spread of disease from one area to another. Animals are capable of doing that all on their own. A fine example of idiotic legislation. Same as agriculture checkpoints like in Ca. Can't fix stupid. But we can eliminate it from the face of this planet.

RE: Best mouse trap?

Traps that have to be fed? Not good. The bucket? Leave it and forget it.

RE: Best mouse trap?

I use the 5gal bucket method as well. Works great. And best of having to reset the trap. It catches over...over...over...

RE: 1993 Itasca chev 454 will not start

Cranks but no start... 1. Check relay 2. Check ignition coil (Fuel, air, spark are needed for combustion) 3. ICM, Pick up coil (must remove distributor) 4. Check wiring (rodent damage)

RE: Annual maintenance

An oil analysis is the only way to know if the oil life is done. Anything else is guessing. That said, I pulled a sample of mine after 4K miles (Valvoline VR-1 Racing 10w-30) and the TBN was at 6.3. And that was after 17 months. Anything above 1.0 is still considered acceptable. The oil out of the bottle starts at 8.0 TBN (Virgin). I'm now running Valvoline Full synthetic 10w-30 Any decent brand oil (even conventional) can live a long life 5,000+ miles. Age doesn't effect it so much as long as the engine is performing as it's designed to (no issues). RV's spend the majority of their time cruising on the highway at a steady speed. That type of driving is very easy on oil. My recent trip I logged 3099 miles (US) and the oil has 5,527 miles on it. It was put in back in July 2020. I have no plan to change it until I approach 7,500 miles. I'm also using a Mobil 1 Extended Perf. filter

RE: 1995 Fleetwood Flair 22ft

Likely discs on the front drums on the rear. At the very min I'd replace the master cylinder, fluid and pull of the rear drums and inspect them. You also will want to check the front hub assemblies. If they need replacing do the pads as well (Centric ceramic). The hub assemblies incl the hub and rotors combined (heavy). You'll also want to from time-time back up and brake. Doing this ensures the rear drums stay adjusted. They are self adjusting by backing up.

RE: 2 Years Without Changing Oil?

I pulled oil from my 94 Fleetwood Southwind Storm 454 TBI that only had 3,720 miles in 2 years. The Blackstone lab results showed no ill effect with the oil. This was Valvoline VR-1 racing 10w-30 conventional. The TBN was still high 6.1 (starts at 8). I'm now using Valvoline full synthetic 10w-30 with Mobil 1 Extended Performance filter (same brand filter prior).
