RE: ISO Owners Manuals in PDF form or Paperback

Here is a Ford Chassis Manual for a 1996, which is identical to your 95 chassis. It shows maintenance schedules, fuse locations, etc. Most of the devices on your coach are generic. IE A/C, furnace, refrigerator, water heater, etc. Richard

RE: How big before 2 A/Cs are a must?

We have owned a 33' 95 Bounder for almost 15 years. We have 2 A/Cs. Front is 13.5K and rear is 11K. So far we have only needed the front A/C. But we do have window awnings along with our patio awning. I guess I should try and start the rear A/C just to see if it works. Richard

RE: FMCA to allow Towables Owners to join

Is a smiling truck camper owner allowed to join? If your self contained. IE fresh water, waste tanks, cook, sleep, poop, bathe. Then yes, come join us please. If the FMCA will allow my 22 year old entry level Bounder, then they will allow most any thing. GRIN OH! And thanks for the smile. It's your positive attitude that I want to see in the FMCA. Richard Webmaster MWPSchooners.com At this point, anything that can be considered a "recreation vehicle" can join. If you have a boat, bicycle, motorcycle, seadoo, etc, you are eligible for membership. There is nothing and I mean NOTHINGwithin the newly approved documents that defines what a "recreation vehicle" is. The wording that is in the magazine about self contained, sleeping facilities, etc do not appear anywhere in the the documents. It is only some smoke screen until July when the wording can be put into the bylaws. The powers to be were in such a hurry to cram this down our throats, they forgot a very important step.The governing board has the authority to change the bylaws and that is what will happen. Until July, go ahead and join with your boat. If FMCA doesn't let you join, there is a lawsuit in the wings waiting. Now, here is a little known fact: The now past president was holding an area rally when a towable showed up. He went over and tild him he was not welcome and to leave. The treasurer refunded the rally fee. This is the same person that who had the brilliant idea to bring in "recreation vehicles" OK, seeing how you have the document in hand. Please post the wording so all can see it. Other wise what you post is just rhetoric. Also the FMCA President does not hold an area rally. That is organised by the area. Richard

RE: Kansas toll road

If you take I35 South to Emporia and then US 50 West to Kansas SR 61 (just a few miles west of Hutchinson, KS) south to US 54 to Liberal, you will encounter no tolls. This route has very good 2 lane roads. The over the road trucks travel this route, as it's the straight line from KC to Liberal. I run this route from Kansas City to Liberal and beyond, every December. Also, there are free places to over-night along 54 in SW Kansas and Oklahoma. Details up on request. Richard

RE: FMCA to allow Towables Owners to join

Been an FMCA member since 1987. I voted to allow other like minded people who have a self contained RV without sn engine to belong to the organization. Have many friends that have the same RVing interest as we do, with all the same equipment except for the chassis. FMCA has a good organization, sponsors good rally’s and membership has some good benefits. Why not allow other like minded folks to participate. Increase the membership base, possibly increase membership benefits and maybe even save a good thing from going away because of increased costs etc..The additional people qualified to join are your neighbors in almost any and every RV park, state or federal park you have ever been in. I agree 100 percent with you. I'm also glad to see those with negative attitudes not wanting to join the FMCA. Maybe some one needs to start a GOM (grouchy old men) origination for those that need to complain about something. We need only those with positive attitudes to bring smiles to our faces.

RE: FMCA to allow Towables Owners to join

"How can that be? The results won't be tallied until the 7th of December and released on the 8th. Care to share the informant? Richard" Came from this person: FMCA National President Results are in for the recent membership vote. Members have voted to welcome owners of self-contained RVs: Total votes: 9,801 In favor: 6,820 Opposed: 2,981 Per FMCA's governing documents, the paperwork is being filed to make the vote official. Until the paperwork is finalized, we cannot accept membership applications from owners of self-contained RVs. So feel free to tell the news to your friends who own travel trailers and fifth wheels, but please let them know we are working on the details! We will tell you as soon as we are ready. In the meantime, we have gathered a list of questions you may have: Read FAQs I want to reassure everyone, regardless of how you voted, that the things you know and love about FMCA aren’t going to change! This is a chance for our RVing family to grow. Jon Walker, F268778 FMCA National President Thanks, Wonder why Jon elected to send the email to a select few? We was told that an email blast would be sent to all members, when the results was released. No one in our chapter (Midwest Prairie Schooners) received the notification.

RE: Looking for a used motorhome to tow 7000 lbs.

I currently have a 1990 Fleetwood Flair 26, with a Ford 460 Gas motor and 3 speed transmission. The original hitch was rated at 3500lbs, and 500 lbs tongue weight. I recently had it reinforced to support about 750lbs of tongue weight, for a trip where I was going to need to carry extra water. As it is, I have in the past towed my boat (~5000 lbs) in a pinch, which was too much by far. Now, pulling my sand rail/trailer (about 3500 lbs), Is beginning to worry me. So, Im looking for something more capable. Eventually I would like to have an enclosed trailer/sand rail/bikes, and be about ~7000 lbs as my max. I have been looking a DP between about $15k-30k and seeing 34-40 foot models from about 1998-2002 in that price range (coachmans, and Gulf Streams mostly). My questions are: should I consider another gas motor, or stick to the DP knowing that towing will take place on most trips? Tow ratings/capacity are pretty tough to find online, what should I expect to see? aside from the motor and trans, what should I be looking for to make towing more comfortable overall? Is air ride suspension in all DP, or is it an upgrade? Ive never driven an air ride vehicle, how does it compare to a vehicle on springs? Finally, is the any erra specific things that changed or were trends I might want to look for or avoid around 1998-2002? You state 3 speed transmission. Then you have an Oshkosh chassis? 88-97 Ford F53 chassis have E4OD 4 speed trannys. Richard

RE: FMCA to allow Towables Owners to join

Got an email, a little bit ago. Towables Owners can now join. They won't be accepting applications until the paperwork is finished. I'm ambivalent about it. It will change the whole character of the organization, of course. Rallies will be different and a lot more participants. I started to post in General RVing but I'm sure word will get there. How can that be? The results won't be tallied until the 7th of December and released on the 8th. Care to share the informant? Richard

RE: Generator problem - only one leg

Generator problem - I have a surge guard protector. Shore power all is ok. (50 amp) When disconnected from shore power and crank up genset, (7000 Onan gas) my surge guard is telling me I am only getting one line (leg). No power to coach. Both circuit breakers on genset are on. Any thoughts? What do you mean "one leg?". Your 7K Onan gas has one 30 amp service to the transfer switch and one 20 amp service to the second A/C. Richard

RE: OIL CHANGE

I guess no one noticed that Tropical36 is in SW Florida. Probably not many oil burning furnaces there. Maybe some one further north would pay the freight to get your oil for their furnace. DUH Richard

RE: Short in house wiring

If he has all the outlets out, he can isolate the short location, between two outlets, with his oem meter. Then he'll only have to tear into one location. Richard

RE: What is involved in adding a trans cooler?

I would install a real temp gauge for the trans temp. You might find there's on trans heating issues at all. Light could be many things, 02 sensor acting up, random miss, fuel cap, etc. (That eng IS EFI and computer managed) That 460 3 speed C6 transmission is in an Oshkosh chassis. Not a Ford F53 chassis. It is carbed with no computer. Do your research. Richard
