RE: Recommended tools for a newbie

To add to what RedRollingRoadblock said. I carry a square drive screw set, adapters to drive sockets with my 1/2" battery powered drill motor. Torque wrench & a baster to add ATF to the ZF emergency brake. (mine leaks a little). OH! and the wife to nag a little.............. Richard

RE: Deep cycle batteries

I believe the best bang for the buck is two 6 volt golf cart batteries from Sam's Club or Costco. Richard

RE: Printer

We have 2 Epson tank ink jet printers/scanners(ET2650-WIFI). One in the sticks & bricks and one in the MH. The tank system makes ink replacement cheap. When not used for a couple of months, I have to run the head cleaning routine 5 times to get every thing back to normal. The all is good. Richard

RE: Dash ac

Your dash AC is from Denso. The exp valve is inside, next to the evaporator. No orifice tube. You will need to remove the kick panel in front of the passengers seat. Click on link and then downloads. Richard

RE: Full Time Motorhome

Any specific reason to avoid a DP? I think you'll find more DP's with a floorplan you like and a W/D than gassers with W/D. believe me, the cost difference between gas vs diesel is a wash. what you spend on one you'll spend on the other. the big difference is the time spent on maintenance. Really? 7 quart oil change for a gas coach. 20 + quarts for a diesel. Replacement engines don't cost the same. No turbo on a gas coach to fail. Heaver diesel coach has more expensive tires. Richard

RE: School Me on Solar Panels

I suggest 24 volt panels. That gives you half the amperage and better voltage for the MPPT controller to work with. Some times the 24 volt panels are less expensive. Richard

RE: Installing black water tank

It is common practice to put some water back in the black tank after dumping, to stop the pyramid of poop. That water will be in the deep end, so I suggest the toilet goes over the deep end. That's the way is was done on my MH. Richard

RE: The time has come to replace the cooling unit in my fridge.

Go with the Amish unit, best thing I ever did. I now have frozen Ice cream and a fridge that stays at 36 degress DITTO! Richard

RE: Twist-on sewer valves…

In Fleetwood's infinite wisdom, my Bounder came with 2 50 gallon waste tanks. DUH! I add a gray water transfer pump to balance the waste water storage. Richard If both tanks use the same drain. Put a twist on valve on the outlet and close it. Open both tanks and they will equalize themselves. Or I can just flip the pump switch in stead of going out side. I can also use the same pump to pump gray water through a green garden hose, to a distant drain. Richard

RE: 83 and have hung up the keys

David, Sorry to see you leave the RV world. You comments about thrashing around loading and unloading is the reason we have a full service RV pad next to the house. We grab a hand full of clothes from the closet and walk to the RV closet. Hopefully our 80 year old bodies will be able to RV for a few more years. Right now I have the transmission out and the engine is almost ready to remove. Running gear needs to be refreshed. Richard

RE: Parking brake will not disengage

OP said "P-brake button". That would indicate Workhorse P32 chassis with DRUM BRAKE on the end of the transmission. So the hydraulic release pressure is not over coming the brake apply spring. To the OP. Chock a tire, then go under your coach and remove the cable pin, near the drum, that applies the E brake. That will allow you to drive to a service center. You will NOT have park or an E brake, so have you co-pilot chock the tires when you stop. Richard

RE: Overload built-in Onan gen. without popping a breaker?

But if the generator overheats, wouldn't it give you an error flash? I didn't get that. Note, I posted my generator is a NHM. My signature says 95. No error codes back then. Richard

RE: Overload built-in Onan gen. without popping a breaker?

I encountered about the same issue with my 7K NHM Onan. It shut down suddenly under heave load. I was running my 2 air conditioners and my neighbor was running his air conditioner off of my generator. My shut down was because the generator over heated. Richard

RE: Difficulty timing a 1995 Chevy 454ci

When you replaced the Dizzy, did it come with a new cap and rotor? Does the dizzy still has a black rotor, it could be arching through in the center to the metal below. Learned that the hard way. Those 50,000 volt ignition systems need a colored aftermarket rotor. I.E. white, red, blue, green, etc. Richard

RE: Stuck in yard, ruts. Install driveway? Ideas please.

If you ever feel the need to slide under your RV, you'll be glad you poured concrete. Richard

RE: class A safety

As Doug & Dodge Guy suggested. Start with the toe in. I spent my younger years in the front end business and toe in is a major player in driveability. I suggest 5/32" as a good compromise between driveability and tire wear. I purchased my F53 in Tucson, AZ. and it was a struggle getting it back to K.C., MO. The toe in was Zero. I set it to 5/32" and it was drivable with one hand. Richard
