RE: PPL Texas customers

PPL is primarily a CONSIGNMENT LOT-- I believe the largest in the U.S. So condition will range from excellent to units that have been neglected. No, PPL does not recondition for sale units any more than any other consignment lot. They do offer a check of house systems(not chassis)as part of the purchase process. They also have one of the larger RV parts departments with good pricing.

RE: Water Heater when draining leaks into trailer

Before pulling the anode, just take a piece of aluminum foil and make a "chute" to direct water outboard. It will slip up under the boss into which the anode is screwed.

RE: What's your Suggested yearly Maintenance/Repair fund/budget?

You have two major variables that you need to "fill in" for us to even make WAG: Gas/Diesel Do your own work (so only paying for parts)/You pay to have everything done (everything at retail)

RE: Buyer's Agent?

As one who does mechanical inspections on motorhomes, I believe your desire for a "buyer's agent" is flawed. At least in the normal use of the term-- a salesperson working for the buyer. They would only get paid if you buy. Hence the more time they take showing you coaches, the more that are "close, but not purchased" the less money they make in a year of doing that. My recommendation is to start shopping-- start ruling in/out coaches and make a short list. Then ask specific questions here or on one of the other on-line RV forums. Choose a coach or coaches that meet your needs. Locate a specific coach that you like. Make an offer "contingent on inspection and test drive". If you are not familiar with both the chassis and house systems, find someone (a neutral 3rd party) who is to go over the coach WITH YOU (so your eyes see what their eyes see-- lots better than a written report). Renegotiate deal if deficiencies.

RE: Tire balance...weight

Yes, TIRE TRUING still exists, but is almost a lost ART. Yes, art, something that Bubba with 15 minutes experience can not do. This info is a couple of years old, but when I needed it done (trued on the vehicle), I contacted the company that makes the truing machine. They gave me the name of dealers how had their equipment in my area. Then called them-- many just did race car tires, but found one who serviced OTR trucks and worked me it at their schedule. Tire Truing Equip: Amermac Ellaville, GA 800 841-8065.,

RE: Tire balance...weight

Did they remove the beads before re-balance with weights? Good point. If tires were not dismounted and beads removed, any other method of balancing would be a failure.

RE: Tire balance...weight

This sounds like a tire that is not round. Has anyone checked that? Fred Yup, start by checking RUN-OUT with your symptoms. All (good)tire dealers have them and it only takes 30 seconds after getting weight off the tire.

RE: Changing tire size on class A

Yup, no problem, as long as the 235/80 had sufficient carrying capacity for your actual weight, suspect the 245/75 will be just fine.

RE: How to lubricate fan bearings in furnace?

First, the fan has BUSHINGS, not bearings.A bushing IS a bearing, of a specific type, AKA "plain bearing", "sleeve bearing", etc. Bushings are bearings, but not all bearings are bushings. (ignoring suspension bushings which are completely different) Mike, Thanks for the terminology correction. When most people talk about lubing bearings I suspect they are picturing what I was referring to as bearings. What would be the proper term for them to understand that these are "sleeve bearings". Not sure that term is widely known.

RE: tires/weight problem

The 8.25" wheels will accommodate any of your choices. I would look closely at a 275/70R22.5. You would be going from load range G to J. Yes, your engine would be turning a few (not significant) more revolutions/mile (545 vs 538)

RE: Air Suspension Storage Recommendations Needed

Ya, for the last 18 years, have used jacks to take approximately half the weight off the tires. No problem yet. Get close to level with boards under the tires first.

RE: Air Suspension Storage Recommendations Needed

Do you have jacks, or air leveling?

RE: How to lubricate fan bearings in furnace?

First, the fan has BUSHINGS, not bearings. And in many cases, they can be lubed in place. You need light-viscosity oil such as sewing machine oil in a dispenser with LONG tip. Place a few drops on the shaft right next to the motor. Repeat a couple of times-- the oil will "wick in". Note: This IS true for the Atwood furnace, suspect also applies to other brands.

RE: Slide operation...HWH

Jim, Wonder if you have a connection what is not tight. Cold= shrinking= no or poor connection. Sure wouldn't hurt to take loose all electrical connections and clean with DeOxit.

RE: Selling - okay to take a personal check?

Bank to bank wire transfers have worked well for me. Same here. When your banker says funds have arrived, hand over paperwork and keys.

RE: Changed Alternator - Engine Cranks But Won't Start

Do you have a manual primer pump on the fuel filter? If so, use it and tell us if it is easy to pump (a problem) or HARD (fuel pressure in system OK). And, assume engine is turning over at normal speed and if cold ambient temperature that you are waiting long enough for the intake manifold heater to get to temperature.

RE: tires/weight problem

What size wheels do you have. That will determine a large part of the answer, as the wheel determines not only what width tire, but also offset. Look at the rear outer wheel-- size should be stamped there.

RE: Busted shock absorber mount, Safe to Drive home

Your call, but I see nothing wrong with driving home with that shock in the basement (removed from it mount). Might have a little more motion, but don't see that as an issue unless you are on one of those roads where you will already experience a lot of motion. Said another way, avoid any terrible roads, and doubt you will even notice it. But, also have no problem, IF you have the time, to get it repaired before the drive.
