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

Some folks are destination people and some are journey folks. There is great joy in crafting a work of art. The process of designing and building sometimes is more satisfying than the end. The end often for a true craftsman is like coming down off the mountain it is not as exciting as the climb. It is the low point compared to the high peak of the mountain. That is the challenge mountain climbers also face. They live to reach the peak of the mountain and not the valleys. There is also joy in using and sharing the finished project. The ones that did not share the journey can not appreciate the reaching the mountain peak as much as those who did the climb. Those lifted to the mountain top via a helicopter will never understand the reward that those who choose to climb share.

RE: Class A Roadside Assistance

I prefer Good Sam Roadside Assistance. I have Platinum + and recommend it for anyone with a large coach. I have had Coach Net in the pass but one gets what they pay for and Good Sam has different options for different needs. My needs require Good Sam Platinum +.

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

I would think there would be more concern with what the black walnut is treated with than the walnut itself. Some finishes will off gas and are very flammable. I would think it would be a little tough to light up a counter top just from off gassing. Then again, I suppose stranger things have happened. I've used a lot of Lacquer over the years, and fortunately never had a problem, and never want to. Some of the inside will get Lacquer, but it probably won't be all at once. Murphy's Law: "If it can, it will" :B

RE: Door hard to open from outside

http://www.visualsc.com/monaco_door_adjust.pdf The exterior door handle may fail and prevent entry to the coach. In this case, when you pull the outside handle, it will move very easily and the door will not unlatch. This will lock you out of your coach. The inside handle will still function so if you have an alternate access such as described later in the document, you will be able to open the door. To open the door from the outside, you can drill the door handle. ? Using a ¾” to 1” hole saw (1” shown), carefully drill a hole in the top left hand side of the handle. Be careful not to cut into the inside latch. The top of the hole should be level with the bottom of the lock. ? You can then use a large flat bladed screw driver to push down the inside latch as shown by the yellow arrow. Picture illustration available on website.

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

I have used step ladders for that same reason but I donot like them on uneven ground as they are somewhat unstable. Be sure of your footing they have a tendency of flipping sideways. I now have a step ladder my BIL gave me that solves that tendency, it has a bar across the feet making the side to side movement more secure. Like clamps one cannot have too many ladders.

RE: My (our) Ultimate Truck Camper Body Build

Great Work.. professional quality. Is access to the spare tire blocked by the camper? Will camper have to be removed on side of road to change tire?

RE: Possible CCC Upgrade

674 divided by 8.3 equals 81.20481927710843 gallons. Does that include full hot water tank plus water in lines? My Newmar has a 75 gallon fresh water tank and 10 gallon hot water tank plus water in lines. That total 705.5 lbs. plus water in lines. I have the same chassis as you. Mine has 10 seat belts and sleeps 10. Only 2 use it.

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

Have you considered renting a few sections of scaffolding and running a walk board between a couple towers on each side?

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

Too late now but would have saved cutting large holes for stove and sink if space had been left for them in the assembling process. Perhaps can utilize the cut-outs for a stove and sink cover to increase counter tops when not in use.

RE: Buying a Motorhome not a mechanic

In the long term one could buy a mechanic for about the same cost as a motor home. It all depends on age of both and the condition they are in.

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

Back in the day one of my customers wanted me to refinish the counter top in his wife's kitchen. It measured a total of 65 feet of counter top.

RE: Source Manager II (25) problems

When I installed solar on mine I also installed a Magnum Inverter/charger. The charger is a great upgrade over the factory one. My recommendation is to do a package insulation at the same time and get a quality system. Hi Charlie.... which Magnum unit did you choose? Did it replace the Source Manager in an American Coach coach? I own a Newmar not American Coach. My coach has 50 AMP service with the auto transfer switch and an EMS built into the electric panel. The Inverter works with all existing equipment except A/C and washer/dryer. Just add a sub panel. I have the Magnum 2012 which I owned before purchasing the coach....otherwise I would have purchased the 50 AMP Inverter. I have 460 AMP battery group and 260 watt solar. I also operate power tools (saws, drill, grinders, etc.) with the service. We live a lot off the grid. Here is a discussion on IRV2 about a Magnum 2012 and SOURCE MANAGER: https://www.irv2.com/forums/f107/heart-source-manager-20-replacement-470989.html

RE: Wind noise

Friends WB Journey had an opening going inside under the dash where a gob of wires were run on the driver side. Shine a light under the dash and see the light shining outside.

Want there be a need to split the TPO over the slope on top of the cab area of the motorhome?

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

I have a box on the back of my Jeep I tow behind the .motor home and it attaches in the hitch receiver. The other day I saw a very large trunk that looks like the typical pirate's trunk that would be the perfect trunk to replace it.

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

A Ranger Rover hood would be more in keeping with the Range Hood idea.
