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

Is that mold forming on the bathroom floor?

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

I have 2, 3" Makita battery power, circular saws that will saw within 1/4 inch of the wall. the rest would be worked down in different ways. One way would be to use a portable plainer and finish by sanding. I expect the adhesive you used on the 2x3 is stronger than what is used on the plywood behind it and would separate first if trying to dissolve the adhesive.

RE: What do you do for condensation inside cabinets?

Without removing the moisture from inside the van it only absorbs into the furniture, paneling, carpet, walls, ceiling, clothes, and any material that is porous. It will cause mold, rot and rust. What are those items worth? Being cheap is not always cheap. Hisense makes a good dehumidifier, Lowes is a good source.

RE: What do you do for condensation inside cabinets?

Install a Dehumidifier and pipe the drain outside and the problem is solved...other efforts just move the moisture around inside.

RE: Will any portable compressor handle 95 psi?

Have had the 400prv for almost ten years. Still works great. Tops off 22.5" MH tires quickly. Light weight and easy to store. Can be kept in the trunk of you car Our 400P-RV Automatic powerful portable tire inflator kit will inflate 275/80/22.5 tires from 80 to 90 psi in just 30 seconds. While the unit is intended for RV use, it can be used for virtually any tire since it comes with accessories for more varied inflating situations than any other portable compressor kit on the market today. Portable compressors with automatic shutoff come into play when moving from tire to tire, and when checking tire pressure in the middle of a tire fill. A typical portable compressor must be turned off between tire fills, and anytime you want to check tire pressure. If you aren’t near the compressor, this can turn into running laps back and forth to the portable compressor to turn the unit on and off. Automatic portables do not work in this fashion and will save you time & effort to get tires inflated quickly. Want to learn more about our RV Portable Tire Inflators? Click Here Please Note: The air hose supplied with this kit may become brittle from prolonged exposure to UV/sunlight. – Stow when not in use. Never allow the hose to come into contact with the head of the compressor during use (melting hazard). The use of the included air hose is not recommended in sub zero or freezing conditions. The 400P-RV does not work with Presta bicycle valves, unless used with a Presta Valve Adapter. FEATURES – Thermal Overload Protector – Automatic Shut-Off Function – Primary & Extension Air Hoses – Vibration-Resistant Diamond-Plate Sand Tray – Heat Shielded Quick Connect Coupling – Gas Station-Style Tire Inflation Gun with 160 PSI Gauge – Heavy Duty Dual Battery Clamps with Inline Fuse – 45-Degree Extended Reach Chuck (For Dual Rear Wheels) – 90-Degree Twist-On Chuck – Heavy Duty Deluxe Carry Bag – 3 pc.

I never purchase anything with that low CFM. To inflate a 22.5 tire to 100 PSI would require a considerable amount of time as the CFM drops to 1.19 @ 100 PSI and 1.11 @ 110 PSI.

RE: Will any portable compressor handle 95 psi?

That you, always nice to learn something helpful I've been using a 12v master flow tsunami 1050 for almost 10 yrs and three RV's, it did well with my gasser for topping up, but was not the right tool for the 22.5 tires on the DP Some day I will replace it with a 120v portable 2.5 CFM at 90# seems to me more like a shop compressor Than a portable unit, that is the size to carry in an RV Going to need about 2hp to produce that flow rate at 90# Please post any links to this compressor https://www.lowes.com/pd/Kobalt-3-Gallon-Single-Stage-Portable-Electric-Hot-Dog-Air-Compressor/1000258241 CLICKY for kobalt at lowes I'm concerned about that Kobalt - we already have enough scams. :B From the description; class leading 2.8 scam at 90psi As far as the $40.00 one from Harbor Freight, I bought one of those for my Mom, if you have all day it might be OK but its pretty darn slow even for a car tire. I have been carrying one for years in my coach and it does find for my 22.5 tires and my air tools, etc. Never had a problem with it and am currently using it to operate my nail gun shooting 3" nails without any problems. Without a good CFM plan to spend all day to air up large tires...volume is what is needed not just PSI.

RE: Will any portable compressor handle 95 psi?

What you need to look for is CFM at 90 PSI. Also one with approx.150 PSI max. One with 2.5 CFM at 90 PSI or above will inflate a large 22.5 tire without waiting all day to do so. If you have adequate battery AH you can use an inverter to power a 120 Volt compressor.

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

Also factor in the hot water tank capacity as fresh water.

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

The black tank must be located so that the commode will empty directly down into it. Will it clear the chassis frame.

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

Where will the holding tanks (fresh, gray and black) be located? Will the access be clear of obstructions if located under body? How will everything balance out on weight distribution?

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

How do you like my door hinges? (Sort of). http://paddleupstream.com/mohorebuild/doorhinges2.jpg The door told me it was cold, so I put another coat on it. Lol. I figured, why not. One last coat of clear Por 15 for the outside. If you plan to "dutchize" your door you will need 4 hinges.

The screws used in many public bathroom stalls have non reversible heads. LIKE THIS

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

While shopping, my wife and i walked by the hinge section, and SHE picked out these hinges for the door. She said, let's put something different on there, rather than the standard old drab, rv hinges. So, here we are. Black hinges coming up. Just so you realize, with the screws exposed on the outside it makes it really easy to remove the door. Should make for an interesting accent on the door. Now you just need to find a latch that will coordinate with the hinges. I suppose the standard lock in the link would work. At least it would not clash with the hinges. Wonder if there would be a way to texture the surface of the lock to match the texture of the hinges. Totally aware of the screws thing'y. I have a couple of different ideas of making those screws secure so they cannot just be removed with a screw driver. Before posting them, does anyone else have any ideas for keeping the screws from being removed, (or the door secured), to keep the door from being removed? Outside the box thinking here..... Use screws with secure heads such as often are used in bathroom stalls or bolt through with secure nuts on inside and decorative plates to give added security.

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

I also have a Newmar and it probably has the same lock configuration....I posted a link to it above for fulltimin to see. So far I have not had a problem with the bolt.

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

I don't recall ever hooking my belt on any vehicle or motorhome lock. I can see the possibility of it happening if a person is larger than the door. That reminds me of a real life situation which happened many years ago at Rock City Gardens on Lookout Mountain, TN. The area has huge boulders and at one point on the trail as it winds through the garden there is a place called the "Fat Man Squeeze." There were three ladies ahead of my group and they were friends. At the squeeze point they stopped to discuss being able to pass through while we waited and watched. Two of the ladies were on the obese side of healthy, one overly obese. The smaller lady passed through first and reached her arm back and took hold of the overly obese lady's hand and the lesser obese lady followed behind and pushed on the lady between the two. They overly obese lady wiggled, twisted, turned, and shoved her body forward as the one pulled and the other pushed her. At the point of appearing to be stuck they again had some discussion about whether to continue or to return back the way they came. Had I been a gambling man I would have placed odds that the overly obese lady would never make it through the "Fat Man Squeeze." But she did. But not without a struggle and extended effort and noticeable damage to her clothing which appeared torn and tattered due the the exercise. I can foresee that happening to a motorhome entrance where the latch bolt gets caught in a fold of flesh or a belt should they be wearing one. Not a pretty picture, not a pretty picture at all. :)
