RE: Back fire and power loss

For 1987 I assume that you may have a carburetor. Sometimes a backfire will ruin the power valve diaphram. Not a real expensive part and not too difficult to change.

RE: Flexsteel

I pulled out ALL Flexsteel furniture in my coach, including captains seats, sofa, etc, and replaced everything with furniture ordered from I was able to pick the fabric and the style and after several years and 75,000 miles I am still happy to have gotten rid of the uncomfortable Flexsteel products.

RE: Looking at this 99 Safari Trek deisel

Go this website, check in, and ask about this coach. You may find that someone there knows all about it and it's history. Trek Trax group

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

When it is dark, shine a bright light either inside or outside of the coach and go to the other side and you should be able to see any light, which would indicate a hole in the dash. As mentioned some wire mesh embedded within the foam may help. During the oil embargo many companies started using soy based products for wire insulation. Rodents find wiring in the new vehicles delicious. :B

RE: Florida

Keep away from South Florida, Miami Dade, and there is no more COVID than many other areas of the country. I live on the West Coast and we still go to restaurants and my bowling league has been going on for the past few months with no problems. Just use a little common sense and don't swap spit with strangers.

RE: Koni vs Bilstein

My Koni FSD shocks are NOT gas charged so they do not transfer the small bumps, like road joinst, back to the coach as much as my Bilsteens did.

RE: I don't think it will start

I don't think the wind will affect it as much on the highway. It also looks pretty light compared to most RV's.

RE: AC upgrade / Need owners manual

Pull off the lower cover and inspect to see that your cool air is going where it is supposed to. Make sure that it is sealed properly and all cool air is going in to the duct system and not in to your roof structure.

RE: Rooftop AC Weird???

I believe that when you have the generator running, the house plug does not supply any power to your coach. It is an either/or with the generator taking preference.

RE: Marker Lights

Try here: LED Marker lights Keep in mind that you will need the two wire marker lights, NOT the single wire type. Get the SEALED LED marker lights if available since they will be unaffected from any water.

RE: Transfer switch popping every 15 seconds

Transfer switches have been known for the individual wire connections coming loose. Make sure that NOTHING electrical is connected and then take the cover off of the transfer switch and tighten all of the connectors. This may solve your problem.

RE: flat towing a toad

If you want a decent inexpensive vehicle to tow, that can carry quite a few people, pets, or supplies, a 2006-2011 Chevrolet HHR is a great toad. They can be towed 4 down with an automatic transmission and all you have to do is pull one fuse. I installed a switch to bypass the fuse when I tow. All it takes is a light kit and a tow bracket and you are good to go. I had diodes installed on mine so it just uses the existing tail lights and brake lights. It is very light so you don't really know it is back there.

RE: ABS Light On

I assume that your coach is on the Workhorse W chassis. An ABS light will still allow your brakes to work fine but you WILL NOT have ABS or anti-lock braking protection. This can be caused by a faulty sensor (about $100) or a dirty connection, etc. The sensors just slide in on the backside of your braking assembly. There is a two wire pig tail that comes off of each sensor that plugs in to the wiring harness. If you have an ohmmeter it is easy to check each sensor. A good sensor will read about 1200 ohms. The sensors just slide in to the back and you may try pushing on the back side to see if one sensor has come a little loose and just moved out. If it has it should slide right back in and problem solved. If you find that you have a bad sensor according to an ohmmeter check, they are available online or at some truck service centers. Mine were made by Meritor but I do not have the specific part number available. Easy enough to change with no tools needed. Just pull the old one out and shove the new one in. Plug in the cable and drive.

RE: VIN Location on 2000 Damon Intruder, F53

The VIN is stamped on a metal tab riveted to the left-hand vertical radiator support. The VIN number is also found on the vehicle certification (VC) label. It may also be on a label stuck to the wall next to the driver's seat.

RE: F53 Loses Power on Rough Roads

Check for a loose connection on something that might actually be shutting off the ignition momentarily which is causing your RPM drop. The ABS light probably is not related to the engine issue but could be from a loose sensor connection at one of your wheels.

RE: buy from dealer or private seller

I sold one of my Classic Cars and the buyer insisted on paying cash because he didn't feel safe with a wire transfer. Ok with me. When he got here with the cash we went directly to MY bank to make the deposit. They knew me so it was no big deal but they did verify that all cash was legit. No paperwork to fill out since it s the BANK that issues the red flag on cash transactions. When I bought one RV. I paid cash and was with the buyer when he paid off the loan and I got the title. He had to pay almost $10K more than I gave him to get out from under his coach. I doubt that would have happened at a dealer but this buyer had already purchased another RV and he had no room for two. Every deal is different but if you feel comfortable with the seller, I feel the best deals are going to be with a private seller.

RE: Concrete driveway thickness??

OK, let's review. You have a DP and you would like to park it in your driveway. You can pay a lot of money NOW and dig the driveway up and repour it to what they think will work OR, and this is what I would recommend, use the driveway and if it fails, then redo the driveway to suit your needs. I agree about not using your jacks UNLESS you use wood cribbing to spread out the load. For all you know the driveway may be 3" thick at one edge and 6" thick in the middle. Who knows for sure.

RE: Buying RV that's been stored

If properly stored a year of not being used is not a big deal. You don't give much information as to whether or not the unit was plugged in while stored or whether or not it was under cover. Rodent damage can happen even in coaches that are lived in full time as well as roof leaks. Only a thorough inspection can answer your question.

RE: spark plug gap for Workhorse (GM) 8.1L ?

Here is a link to what one of the experts has to say about the gap and different types of spark plugs. Oemy's

RE: spark plug gap for Workhorse (GM) 8.1L ?

I think the factory says .060 but many people also recommend .045 for better performance.
