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

Personally, I think John Deere Green looks better than Orange. Along with the yellow, you would have some unique yard art. Other than that, it looks like you are making good progress and should be fully weather tight soon.

RE: Distribution hitch

If you are going to leave the hitch head in the tow vehicle, I would spray the square bar and lockable locking pin down with something like Bowshield or WD-40 every so often, maybe every two or three months so the hitch doesn't rust into the receiver. That way if and when you trade tow vehicles, you can keep your old hitch and not have to buy a new one. Heavy Water Resistant wheel bearing grease will also work, though it is a mess when you do remove the hitch head. Rest assured, the towing receiver will rust even if you don't use it. I bought my Chevrolet Pick-up from my sister who only used a fifth wheel hitch in the two years she had the truck and when I bought it, I had to beat my receiver in and out with a big sledge hammer the use it. The more I have installed and removed the hitch, the easier it has become. Still hate the cheap receiver Chevy installed. I never had those problems with the Reese Receiver I installed on my 75 IHC Scout II which I owned for 24 years. I guess they don't make them like that any more.

RE: Tow Bar Age

My RoadMaster Sterling All-Terrain was purchased new in 2009 and I see no issues with the age, everything is tight and works smoothly in fact we are hitting the road Wednesday for two weeks.

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

I really don't think being food safe would be an issue, my wife always uses a cutting board for her food prep so she would not damage the counter tops in our various houses and apartments.

RE: flat towing a toad

Go to the RoadMaster or Blue Ox WEB Sites and see what vehicles they make Base Plates for and then you will know if what you want to tow is even towable. Not all versions of a vehicle are towable due to different engine/transmission/transfer case combinations installed. When I purchased my 2019 Jeep Cherokee I had to be very careful when I ordered to get a version with the Active Drive II or it was not towable. The Chevy Equinox was also on the list that I could tow without exceeding my hitch capacity. Unfortunately I could not order it the way I wanted it with out other junk I would not have in a car of mine. The Jeep also was not exactly what I wanted but the best I could do given my weight limits and the need for AWD/4WD. I really wanted a Toyota/Honda or Subaru but none of the new ones with an Automatic are towable. Good luck in your quest and I understand that Ford now has some vehicles that are towable that were not available when I ordered in January 2019.

More storage, that the wife can reach, is a better thing. Short people problems, 101. Thanks. My Wife says she is Vertically Challenged.

RE: Coach battery replacement

I switched to AGM when my 8 year old Interstate 6 Volt batteries died. If i didn't want more capacity and needing to relocate the battery bank inside the MH, I would have definitely went back to the Interstates. I never had to add water in the first 7 years of use and only started to having to add water the last few months of their life.

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

Are you sure that roofing is TPO? I always was told the way to tell if your roof was EPDM would be White on the top and Black on the bottom and TPO would be White on Both sides. https://www.youtube.com/watch?time_continue=9&v=KL5qJw397Rc&feature=emb_logo

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

In the boating world, that board across the bottom of the shelf is called a Fiddle. That will probably work as you intend, though my wife wants her cupboards to hide the mess and keep things in place. With nicer weather coming along as summer progresses slowly towards us, will you be doing other outside work other than the roof?

Here's the LINK for the blade Pastor Charlie uses. Unfortunately this link takes me to a 9" Milwaukee, not the 12" Diablo blade.

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

Unfortunately, planing a stack of lumber takes more than 10 minutes. First of all, it takes a few passes through the planer to clean things up. We're down now to about 1/2" thickness. Only one side is planed, and I haven't decided on whether to do the other side or not. That would bring it down to about 3/8" thickness. Since these have all been run through the planer, they are all the same thickness. As long as the back side is used where it won't be seen, it's not a problem. I'll have to think on it a little bit. http://paddleupstream.com/mohorebuild/pileofplanedcedar.jpg It all depends on what you are supporting the back side with and how far the supports are apart. 3/8" would make the counter top lighter and with the supports spaced maybe and I am guessing 12" apart, I would think it would be strong enough. If it were planed, it would be a better surface to top coat and guarantee proper coverage with less chance for pin holes in the finish. Of course a 1/4" of Epoxy would cover the rough cut marks and prevent moisture penetration. After spending this much time on time on this project, I don't think an extra 10 minutes per board is that much. This looks like a labor of love project and not something that had a drop dead time line to it.

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

All you need to do is figure a way to secure it to the counter so you don't have to remove and install every time you set up camp. My wife hates to even get the toaster out unless we are setup for a several of days. Maybe a bungee cord to fasten it to the wall while traveling.

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

Our Motorhome came with one from the factory. And what brand is your MH? Might be the Toilet we need to look at finding to see if it is retrofit able.

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

She found one on Amazon that was like $50 or so. Didn't heat the water and didn't dry your butt but got great reviews. I said she was crazy. Found one on Warehouse Deals for about $35. Do you have a link?

Hopefully it comes out soon and the wound heals fast. At my age the wounds don't heal as fast as they use to.

Do you have a link for that DC Amp Meter?

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

Will the negative pressure behind the motor home affect the reefer while running down the road? I would worry about the flame blowing out and the dirt entering the space behind the reefer.

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

I keep hoping someone would come out with one of those WiFi Bore Scopes that would work with my Windows 10 Lap Top, I can see the 17" Screen a lot better than my phone screen.

RE: Help 2018 Equinox

Does the owners manual require you to leave it in the ACC Position? That will kill the battery in a heart beat. Do you have 13+ volts on the Equinox Battery when hooked up to the coach? If the charging line is hooked up properly and powered, you should have 13+ volts on the battery with the coach engine running.

What happened, I need a fix.
