RE: Interesting video

More torque at a lower RPM will be the engines best point at first.

RE: LEDs Replacement for Flourscent

What powers the under cabinet lights? Do they have one of those cheap LED remote control units or are they hard wired somehow to a switch? A hard wired dimmable LED driver. The summer switch is wall mounted right next to the regular canned light switch. I didn't do this in the camper, those aren't dimmable.

RE: Interesting video

Super! I'll bet a new 7.3 with a full banks power pack and 5 start tune would beat your V10 by at least 3 or 4 seconds too. Whats the point? The video is showing whats available today and some of the improvements that have been done. What happened 12 years ago really isn't relevant to whats offered today. If they were both available today then sure, but the old V10 is gone.

RE: LEDs Replacement for Flourscent

I too did the $5.00 roll of LED strip light with the new ends. Pretty simple and easy. I keep a roll in the MH and when a light goes out I switch it over. We did a new kitchen a few years back, I did the same for under cabinet lights. $100 vs $1500. The contractor had never seen it done that way, that's how he's doing them now. I did my daughter and S-I-L kitchen the same way.

RE: Repalcing Onan

^^^ This. I've never seen a factory installed one that wasn't.

RE: Tire Shopping

I did pretty good buying off Ebay I did awesome buying from my local truck tire dealer. Not only did they have great pricing on my tires, they also took my old tires in trade as they have homes for them.

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

Do an under mount sink. No seam to catch ****.

RE: Another Oldie Not Mine

Agreed. If that was closer I'd be tempted. Thankfully its not closer. :B

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

I just saw the following on Craigslist. The ad was from a speed shop cleaning out inventory; 350 Chevy engine: Basic rebuild with RV camshaft All new parts / dyno ready $3500 complete with aluminum intake, New carburetor and Electronic ignition. Includes >>FREE<< DYNO testing! You've gone this far, might as well pop in a fresh, updated engine too.

RE: 2020 F-53 V-8 Specs

Actually, reasonable to compare factory spec to factory spec. Totally understand that factory spec for that generation V10 is not close to how I would program it! Agreed. Stock for stock is how 99% of people will actually own and drive them. Sure a tune is nice, but most just don't do it.

RE: The Verdic is in, New Ford 7.3 V-8 Gas mpg not so Great

Sometimes I just shake my head on these. I know there is no perfect test, but you should at least test under the same conditions. Which they didn't. They mention a couple times on the video that they were fighting the wind when they were with trailer in the Ford. Also, I'm not sure they are even using the same test track. The towing test are on I76 east. That non-towing trip with the Ford wasn't on that stretch of road - it is on the diagonal from Longmont to Boulder - not an interstate, there is more traffic and stop lights. Is that the same road they used for the unloaded Chevy test? Not defending the 7.3 blindly, but we really need to get some real-world test results before anyone makes a judgment, good or bad, about the MPG of the 7.3. Hold on now...don't let the facts get in the way of a good story. :B

Yes, yes, and yes!

RE: The Verdic is in, New Ford 7.3 V-8 Gas mpg not so Great

I'm not even a little surprised. BTUs are BTUs. Big trucks with big engines use a lot of fuel, nothing new there. The real test will be how well does it do in MH duty. My guess is it will be a real nice improvement.

RE: Interior adhesive

Just last night I watched a video on which construction adhesive was best. Loctite PL 8X was the winner by a wide margin.

RE: "Leather" coming apart and peeling

I could be wrong but the stuff thats failing isn't bonded leather. If it's peeling it's bonded leather. Bonded leather is made by grinding up all the scraps left over after making "real" leather products, then adding the resulting powder to water to make a slurry. That slurry is then sprayed onto a fabric substrate and allowed to dry. When the manufacturing process takes shortcuts - either using poor quality materials, or just sloppy processes in general, the top layer will eventually separate from the substrate. There is also a man-made product with the trade name "UltraLeather" - it is a higher quality product that seems to not be used much anymore. We had a sofa and love seat set in our house made with bonded leather. It started peeling right as the warranty ended and the company would not do anything; they said it's "normal wear and tear". In contrast, our 2007 Bounder has UltraLeather upholstery and it still look great after over 12 years and 45,000 miles. Thanks for the info - I just learned something. Ours too has Ultraleather which has held up well.

RE: "Leather" coming apart and peeling

You are right, Bruce. That is what Bradd and Hall told us. We've just had some bad "happenings" with our Fleetwood. Added all together makes us think 'no more Fleetwood'...This is our last motorhome anyhow, due to our ages, not the motorhomes'...but if we were to get another one it would NOT be a Fleetwood. While ours was many, many years ago, our second MH was a Fleetwood. Had it been our first MH there never would have been another one - it was that bad. With that said, Fleetwood today is an entirely different company than it was when we owned ours. It is sad people have issues with any brand. Thankfully since we traded our Fleetwood for our first Newmar things have been **MUCH** better. We're on our 3rd Newmar, if we ever buy again it will be another. Good luck with yours.

RE: "Leather" coming apart and peeling

Our 2005 has the ultra leather and is in great shape. A year or longer later they started using a cheaper ultra leather, or polyurethane I think it is. it was on these forums and others. We looked at Winnebago, some American Coach and the others and their seat covers feel like the really cheap car seat covers from Japan 30 years ago as well as the seats being smaller and hard and not fitting us. The stuff in our '08 is still good, thankfully. In the OPs case I can't say he would have had any different result had he bought another brand. They all pretty much use the same suppliers.

RE: "Leather" coming apart and peeling

I could be wrong but the stuff thats failing isn't bonded leather. It's a bad run of man-made stuff that has been discussed here at length. Sadly, very few are getting much help from either the coach builders who used it or the manufacturer who put the furniture together.
