RE: Well it was a lot of work...

I just did mine too. It was a heck of a job. It is worth it.

RE: P30 Suspension Overhaul

Hello. The front end of my HR is sagging and I can't use my front levelers because they can't fully extend. So I am thinking of some kind of overhaul. I bought some new airbags to install. I also looked at some new coil springs. I find heavy-duty springs for sale that supposedly don't need airbags. But I wonder if .they would make the ride too stiff. Maybe I would be better off with OEM-type springs so I could adjust the ride with the airbags. I don't really have any knowledge about this so I would appreciate any advice or experience. Thank you. I replaced the air bags in my 92 p30 and aired them up, it drove much better. They are a bear to get in there but they will squeeze in. Do what you bought first you may be suprised

RE: Furnace fan and battery drain

Use a buddy heater. They work great.

RE: Any companies take base plates in trade?

Anyone know if any companies will buy used base plates or take them in trade. I've got three now that I've taken off different toads. Two Blue Ox and One RoadMaster. Of course, I'm going to have to buy another. It would be nice to trade them in on the new one. I know they are not worth much to a retailer but they aren't worth much to me either right now. I was just thinking they might sell remanufactured ones. I need a BX2671 blue ox.

13 F150 as a toad with a 99 newmar 8.3 Cummins

I have been thinking I already have a perfectly good truck I could put my scooters in it and go. Has anyone had problems with a setup like this? Speed is no problem I drive slow anyway?

RE: Freon capacity

People give you down the road for calling refrigerant Freon but yanno, they knew what you were talking about. I use the term often when I repair someones AC. I know thats what term they use.

RE: Freon capacity

I would think 3 lbs might be too much. If its cooling leave it alone. Wait and see how it does on a hot day. Look at other trucks like yours and see the refrigerant capacity

RE: RV to power home temp

I was hoping to back feed my house thru the shore power cord by killing the main power flip a switch in the motor home (separate transfer switch) and run a few items till power is restored. Maybe ad a twist lock at two points within the transfer switch, one at incoming power and other main gen power connecting to the cord depending which mode I'll be in. Please don't. Use a transfer switch designed for this application do not trust your main breaker as a disconnect to the utility. I am a retired journeyman lineman and this can kill utility workers. I can't tell you how many failed main breakers I have seen. If you back feed into the utility the 120/240 volt service feeding your house comes from a transformer that converts primary high voltage at the transformer to the 120/240 volts for your house. If you back feed into the transformer you create primary high voltage through the transformer. The transformer is a simple device feed high voltage in the top it makes secondary voltage out the bottom feeding your house feed secondary voltage into the transformer and it makes high primary voltage out. Not just utility workers are at risk lets say you have a wire down on your street or 2 streets over and you back feed through your service and the neighbor kid moves the wire so he can play and dies or is maimed guess who is at fault or maybe the downed line starts a house fire etc. I know of one lineman personally that got killed by an illegal hooked up generator in Mariposa, CA and their have been more many more. It doe not matter if your home is fed underground or overhead the threat is the same. Best case scenario is the utility worker grounds the primary line and smokes your generator. Do NOT TRUST YOUR MAIN BREAKER TO BE A DISCONNECT TO THE UTILITY. A proper transfer switch is a break before make device that gives a physical separation to the utility service. Would it be legal if I installed a 200 amp disconnect between the meter and main panel? Back feeding would be so much easier.

Thanks for the heads up. I would have thought it would pop the gen breaker because of the load. I will do more research. Thanks
