RE: Diesel vs Gas

Just go drive one of each - you'll know. :W

RE: Tow Bar Age

No it means if you are the original owner Demco just want's a copy of your bill off sale. Maybe if other company's do what you are saying that's them. You missed the scarcaism. :W

RE: Tow Bar Age

^^^ A "Lifetime Warranty" these days means as long as its working you're good. As soon as it dies its lifetime is over, and so is your warranty.

RE: Water, water....not everywhere?

Great idea. Thanks! I'm not too far away. If you want another set of eyes on it I could give you a hand looking sometime.

RE: Class A Tire Recommendation

^^^ 2 post above - YES!!! Even if you have been abusing it not a chance in heck that thing needs new tie rods and king pins. The Goodyears are known to river so don't let them tell you a worn out front end is causing it. Someone is being a bit less than honest IMO. As to the tires, Hancock & Continental make a nice tire, personally I'm not buying Michelins.

RE: Strange sounds from the kitchen sink

I think you figured out what it was. I always keep the valves closed until (A) the tanks are near full, or (B) it's time to go home. Over the years I've found it seems to work best to let the tanks fill as opposed to trickling out as you're doing.

RE: Looking at this 99 Safari Trek deisel

I'd do some real research on the engine in it. I believe, and I could be wrong, that has a GM 6.5 diesel in it. I'd check reviews for power, longevity, as well as parts availability. If you're good with what you find the Trek was a neat little motorhome.

RE: .........

PMs are good but don't be afraid to ask/discuss things here too.

RE: Used RV Financing

With the current situation and so many people working remote good luck getting anything done quickly. A good friend of ours is a loan officer at a local bank - she has never been busier.

RE: Rodents coming in through engine compartment.....

One issue with spray foam is you'd need to use the rodent resistant stuff. They actually like the other stuff - ummm, tasty!

RE: Operators manual

RV manufacturers manuals are often so generic as to be virtually useless. You're likely better off finding the individual component manuals for jack systems, etc. 100%. We've owned 5 MHs now and a TT, I've never seen an operators manual for the MH itself.

RE: 1998 holiday ramble endevor

I agree with all of the above. If, however, you change your mind please let me know - I'd be more than happy to take on the project. :B

RE: I don't think it will start

It might need a jump and some starting fluid. I think maybe it's seen a little too much starting fluid. :B

RE: Banks Exhaust

Banks makes nice stuff. We installed a Banks exhaust on a MH years ago, it was very well built and a nice improvement.

RE: Sofa bed clearance

OK, that sounds like a statement, is there a question in there somewhere? Agreed! Was there a point to the post? Was it a venting post or just letting others know? I will say when we bought our current MH clearance between the opposing pull out couch/beds was something we considered, and sure enough, we have plenty of room between them when they're deployed.

RE: Generator vapor locking

It very well could be a fuel pump. If it were weak Pump) and electric pumps are known to work at slower speeds when they get hot) would Cause the issue I’m having. I can’t see it being an oil issue only at hotter temps. I will try the pump first. If not then I’ll do an oil switch. If it were an oil switch issue it should give a code on why it shut down. I never get a code. There is no code to be set for low fuel flow. So if it died due to low fuel it wouldn’t set a code. It's your money so do what you want. If it were my money I'd start with the oil switch as Doug suggested. Pretty cheap and easy to try, and 100% makes sense as to what is happening, as he explained. With that said, we once owned a Ford powered MH that would die when it got hot - it was the fuel pump. The big difference is that one wouldn't immediately re-start and run well. Sometimes it would re-start and limp, sometimes it wouldn't re-start until it had cooled. You guys are aware this is the Generator engine right? The generator runs In completely different parameters than the vehicle engine. I've very aware. My note on the MH was yes, a hot fuel pump may indeed be an issue. With that said, it made no difference if it was rough or smooth, when it died it died. It was 100% a temperature issue and 0% a terrain issue. In your case the fact it only does it only when you hit a bump or shake it leads me to believe the switch is more likely to be the issue. Keep in mind heat effects electronics too. But like I said, it's your money. If you want to start with a $45.00 pump first it might save you from buying a $4.00 switch later. Me - I'd rather start with the $4.00 switch in hopes I'd be saving $45.00 later, but thats just me. I'm sure you'll get it figured out and let us know - and we'll all appreciate your information!

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

I got up early this morning, and managed to get a coat of Lacquer on before breakfast, and then this evening I added the third coat, so I think they are about done. Next will be to put some finish on the counter tops. http://paddleupstream.com/mohorebuild/lacquershelving5.jpg That would look pretty good with some doors on it. :W

RE: Ford V10
