RE: Dually valve extenders

There are probably thounsans of people that have and use the braided extentions and never have any problem with them. There are "O" ring seals that are a wear item, that should be replaced at times.

RE: Self Driving 18 wheeler Going 75 MPH

no way is the world ready for self driving anything. Do it all the time in my A. Set cruise control on, tie a bungy cord to the steering wheel, and go in the back to take a nap. So far so good! :ZBungy cord, where did you learn about the bungy cord. The sales people did not say anything about using a bungy cord, and there is nothing in the information that came with the MH about a bungy cord either.

RE: Coach battery size/model

OK, does you current batteries have 6 caps or only 3? If you have 6 caps they are 12 volt batteries and should have a size molded, printed on them. If they have only 3 caps, they are most likely CG6 golf cart batteries. Before disconnection anything take pictures of the configuration, and each post, to make sure that all cables get connected back up, and the proper configuration for 6 or 12 volt batteries.

RE: Anyone interested in 83 Pace Arrow Tear down and Rebuild?

... From my perspective, I don't think that is excessive. If we were talking a diesel for around 20 grand, that is a different issue. For $20K I might be willing to part with a 540 BBC that makes 897 hp and 755 lbft of torque on methanol. Only has about 50 miles on it since full rebuild last winter. Couldn't squeeze out 900 hp because was lousy weather when we had it on the dyno. Gets about 4 gpm with a 4.31 rear end ratio. Can run gas with a different carb and would get about 1.5 gpm on 113 octane. Does that come with a guarantee that my 12,000 lb motorhome will turn sub 10 second runs in the quarter mile? Yes, and solar will be all you need for power also.

RE: Anyone interested in 83 Pace Arrow Tear down and Rebuild?

Joe had a very good idea of how to remove the 2bys. Try the cutter blade ad the saw blade to see which one does a better job. Spray silicone on the blades to keep the glue from gumming things up so much. In this case cardboard is your best friend. If it is not bit enough, it can be glued or stapled together to make it big enough to use. You can fold an edge over and staple it to the wall, that would be easier to work with until you really decide on a layout.

RE: Battery charging slow

I don't think you are charging your batteries long enough. If they are in a depleted state, it would take at least 24 hours, and more likely 48 hours to fully charge them back up.

RE: Upgrade V-10 to Turbo?

Rich, where are you finding these parts? Then there is the balance problem. I couldn't find stroker crank for the V10. I suspect the 4.165 crankshaft on the V10 mostly fill the crankcase. All the other stuff is readily available. Or are you talking about my 528? RichardThe V10. If there was a stroker crank, there would be balance problems. The V10 has a balance shaft in the driver side head now.

RE: Onan Gen--hard starting and surging

Russ, your problem may be the fuel line from the tank to the gen. Get some fuel line the right size, and connect it to the inlet of the fuel pump. Then insert the other end in a container of gas of know quality, and start the generator to see if it will run. If it does, the fuel line from the tank to the metal line under the MH may have dried out and cracked, allowing air to enter the line causing the problems. It is possible to change the hose without dropping the tank, if you are not too muscled up. Good luck

RE: Good news... dreaming of BEV Class A

Being Technically feasible and developing the battery are two different things. a 10% drop-off is very optimistic also. We may get there, but it will take time and very large amounts of money$$$.

RE: Ford Questions

More than likely, the wheel covers are held on by three nuts.

RE: Anyone interested in 83 Pace Arrow Tear down and Rebuild?

Unless you are going to start with flat stock and weld them to the required angle, no. You will be hard pressed to find a shear/bender longer than 48". Most cheap benders will only do 90 degrees without a jig to go farther. Then if it is anything thicker than sheet metal, it may facture due to how it is made. You could try the Armstrong method, but it may not be a good look, or uniform.

RE: Voltage or Ground

What is going on? Why are we at each others throats? Aren't we trying to help each other, or is Russia changing out posts? LOL.

RE: Ford 7.3L V8 Power Numbers & They Are Lower Than We Thought!

I agree on that. I believe that is a vastly under estimated power plant.

RE: Interesting article: Tesla Semi Electric Motorhome.

Reisender, maybe I was just cheery picking the info, it was a little confusing from one paragraph to another. You are a better man than I finding the true honest websites that are giving true reports. I have searched and didn't get a warm fuzzy feeling from most of them. Some seemed to be copied from others, but hey, it is the internet.

RE: Ford 7.3L V8 Power Numbers & They Are Lower Than We Thought!

JR, you would have been better off putting a 390 in it instead of the 360. The 360 really had a bad rep in the ford pickups as being gutless and a gas eater. Quite a few people put a car 390 in place of the 360 and were very happy with the increase power and mileage.

RE: Interesting article: Tesla Semi Electric Motorhome.

Reisender, your links do not contain much information about actual sales of all cars, like less than 160 EVs for the month. How many cars are usually sold in a month in Ca.? I don't know about the UK, but the probably quit plugging in because of the way it ran the electric bill up. Now Germany is a different story. Quite a few of the upper class have purchased plug-ins, but do not go far from home because of lack of charging stations, or not knowing where they may be. Hybrids on the other hand, are in great demand. Used one are near nonexistent. Germany saw that they would loose taxes on fuel with EVs, so they have put a penalty on the purchase of them, but it does not end there. Since the own a EV, they added a surcharge on their electric bill. My information if from someone that lives there, not a website. It seems your Damned if you do, and Damned if you don't.

RE: Ford 7.3L V8 Power Numbers & They Are Lower Than We Thought!

if you all remember the big ford 460 truck engine it was the biggest gas gushier ford made and don't think that will change in the new engine. False. Back when "Super Duty" on the side of the hood ment there was a 850 in the VIN, (F850) Ford had a 477, and 534 CID. I had one of each. Either would pull Jesus off the cross, but a GMC 427 could pull right with them, and burn less gas. One place the new engine might box a diesels ears is if it can run on compressed natural gas, might get the same work done at much lower cost.The 460 was a gas eater because of the way Ford had to set it up to pass emissions. With the correct timing chain set, so the cam is straight up, and some other corrections, it was a powerhouse and didn't do bad on MPGs either. Unless you are talking about the poly head 427, GMs real powerhouse was the 454 hands down, and wasn't a nightmare to work on.

RE: Interesting article: Tesla Semi Electric Motorhome.

Lots of politicians have made millions with this global warming stuff and to me thats all it is. Is the earth changing? Sure it is and has since the beginning. Must have been camp fires cave men used during the ice ages that started it.:S This has been my argument. I believe that if you burn wood it still emits carbon. So, billions of campfires would do what to the atmosphere? About what China is doing to it today.... And running a genny to not run your own engine? Seems counter-intuitive. WW Kinda why Hibrid sales are falling fast and BEV sales are rising.Say what? Most manufactures are increasing the hybrid lines. Lets see, 40+ mpg on the highway, mid to high 30s in town. What are the down sides again? Where do you get your information?
