RE: leveler spring noise

About the only way the springs can make noise is the movement on the anchors. Shoot a little oil on the top and bottom where the spring hooks on. See if that quiets them down. Just to throw this out there, I've seen 2 coaches without anchors. Just plates on top and bottom with the spring squished between. (yes very odd and next time I'm getting a photo). Curious if the OP's is that way.

RE: Black water gate valve replacement

Yes, and WD-40 is your friend, especially the night before you decide to unscrew. :) Not mandatory but nice.

RE: Ford F-53 Black Smoke

Did it throw any lights? (CIL or check engine?)

RE: workhorse chassis

OK so now maybe I will ask to see the engine. he claims he can prove it has the ford engine. I met him 2 months ago so when he backed beside us today the subject came up again. chevman Well if he's arguing, I say check it out. Post a photo if it's real. :)

RE: Norcold 1200 LRIM

That puppy would be out the door quicker than you can say Not-So-Cold. When there is any sign of maybe a coach fire it would be out, I like to sleep at night. Mine was working but had a hard time cooling in warm weather, so I made the switch to a RR frig. One of the best moves we have made! JR In all my years RV'ing I have come to this conclusion as well. While I love the idea of boondocking, anything that would cause a fire would be out. Not worth the risk. 2 of my coaches have residential fridges. Our TT still has a working dometic. Once it goes or threatens I'm putting a residential in that.

RE: tire pressure

On my passenger car I always make my tire pressures about 5-7psi more than the label. It gets way better MPG and have driven this way for 3 decades with millions of miles.... On an RV I go right off the mfg suggestion to the max or tire max. One of the other. RV's are simply too heavy and large to mess around with. (Especially on my class A bounder. My little Toyota class c I've played with some on psi with no problems)

RE: 1987 Bounder 34ft wiring question

My guess (and guess only) is the wire heads towards some type of accessory that is not on the coach (towing perhaps). Is there any way you can try to follow it to get more clues?

RE: Bbq

Haha, This could easily turn into a charcoal vs. electric vs. propane... I like me meats smoked over real wood or coal. Do electrics cook food though - yes.

RE: Power Gear leveling panel does not come on

Are other things working in the coach? Any 12v fuses and not breakers?

GREAT! Added to the bucket list! Looks like fun!

RE: Why I own a MH continued

We were done with flying after 9-11... Nothing like an RV trip anyway. Sit back, take in views, visit funky places, visit local culture, learn about all kinds of history.... Awesomeness.

RE: RV Residential Refrigerators

Only problem you'll have is when boondocking. Otherwise an inverter keeps ours running while driving.

RE: Need some tires

I've always had the best results with Hankook. They seem to out last the other brands in my experience.... Not by much, but perhaps 15% more.

RE: Day/Night shade cleaning

Take them down, spread them out as much as possible in the bathtub. Hot water and a good detergent, let them soak overnight then rinse with cold water. Lay out to dry keeping the pleats in while it's drying. Mine looked like new after doing this. Exactly. Do not agitate them! :)

RE: Any issues on the Winnebago Vista line?

Winnie's have a good rap sheet in general....

RE: 2000 windsport motorhome

Remember there are also repair types of manuals such as chiltons out there if you don't find one. Usually those will have a lot of info on the vehicle as well.

RE: Purchase Using 3rd Party Escrow Company

Well there are two choices. 1) If you want something done right do it yourself. 2) Two heads are better than one. Typically life experience has dictated that #1 has always proven to have better results --- however #2 is better for scruitiny in decisions.
