RE: Onan BFA Oil - Why not 20W-50?

Every thing you ever wanted to know about oil is at Bob is the oil guy. I linked to his viscosity article but there a weeks worth of reading on his site. Richard

RE: Winegard Antenna

If your installation is similar to the photo shown, I would just rotate the base assembly far enough to the right to clear the Wingman past the A/C and reseal it. X2. This is exactly what I did when I add my Wingman. Just reindex the whole antenna assemble a few degrees and reseal. Richard

RE: '99 Bounder Front Door Lock

Chuck, if your door lock is any thing like my 95 Bounder, you won't have any problem putting it back together. 3 Screws, I think. Nothing will go flying when it comes apart. Richard

RE: 1995 Bounder and What to offer on it

I've been driving a 95 Ford 32H Bounder for 13 years. It's really easy to over load those old Bounders. That Chevy chassis is rated for 16,500# and will be close to over loaded with a full tank of fuel, 2 passengers and some clothes in the closet. If you fill the 100 gallon water tank (830#) you will be over loaded. It's rated to tow 3,500#. The independent suspension front end on that chassis is problematic, but fixable. The mid 90s Bounders were built well with decent materials. You can only run one roof top A/C when plugged in to shore power. But both will run when on the generator. That coach was delivered with a CCI 7719 LP detector that controls a solenoid valve to shut of the LP in case of a leak. It must be turned on for the propane appliances to work. The detector is located next to the floor in the galley. Not trying to condemn any thing, just want to make you aware. Richard

RE: restoring 1987 holaday Rambler

If memory serves me correctly, those P32s of that era came with both an electric and a mechanical fuel pump. That being the case, the electric, pusher, fuel pump will work when the starter is engaged or when the oil pressure comes up. With only a mechanical fuel pump, vapor lock can occur in the long line from the tank to the engine. Richard

RE: Header Installation - Abandon EGR Tube? - Acetone?

The EGR valve was installed to lower combustion chamber temperatures, which reduced the formation of NoX. Then the ignition timing was advanced to help compensate for reduced performance. With NO EGR and advanced timing, there is a chance of burning a hole in a piston. Richard

RE: Light Bulbs

OP here, ones I'm looking at are GE Brite Stik, Soft White from Sam's Club $15+ per pair. I have the same 2 LEDs. Nice white light. I use one as a porch light. Neighbors hate it because it lights up there house, across the street. :B Richard

RE: F53 front end shimmy

"Shimmy" usually makes reference to a front end/tire problem. Could it be that you are chasing a "vibration" from another source, like engine misfire or drive train? Richard

RE: This sums it up for the status of the RV industry now

While some valid points are made, the author does show some lack of knowledge when he blames the RV manufactures for the in tank fuel pumps. He needs to learn the difference between coach and chassis. Richard

RE: Ballpark cost of Brake Job on F53 Gasser

New pads and rotors at 18,000 miles. You couldn't be that poor of a driver if you tried. The repair industry brings tear to my eyes. My 95 F53 still has the factory rotors and second set of pads @ 144,000 miles. The calipers have been rebuilt or replace about 4 times. Please take you F53 to a competent repair facility. Richard

RE: Do the people that build them ever use them?

Yes, one builder was a RVer. John Crean, the founder of Fleetwood, was a RVer that ask questions in the camp grounds to help him make a more usable RV. That's why the Bounder was the top seller in the 90s. John retired in the late 90s and Fleetwood went down hill. Or maybe the others caught up. Richard

RE: Anyone Making Gas Pushers?

Many years ago there was a few 460 gas pushers manufactured. They had cooling problems that was falsely blamed on the engine being gas. The real problem was the engine/radiator fan. The fan pulled air instead of pushing air. Richard

RE: F53 front end shimmy

There was no 1998 F53 chassis. Is your coach on a 1997 or a 1999 chassis. If a 97 chassis with 16" tires, have the damper on the tie rod replaced. Richard

RE: Putting on wallpaper using glue

Buy vinyl paste at the wallpaper store. Then spread it on over the existing prepaste. I learned a little from my dad, who made a living hanging wallpaper. Richard

RE: Hydraulic Booster Pump -stuck? Ford 460 OshKosh

Oshkosh was purchased by Freightliner. So Freightliner may be your best source for information. Richard

RE: Propane detector issue

If you like, there is a gentleman doing CCI repair. To the best of my knowledge, all repairs get a new sensor and voltage regulator plus what ever else is needed. Contact Larry at ccirepairs@gmail.com Having the ability to have the propane shut off when there is a leak, is a plus. My CCI 7719 continued to function properly for over 15 years. I now have a rebuilt CCI 7719 that functions as designed. Richard 95 Bounder

RE: Clunk after CHF

This guy on Ebay has been the gold standard for F53 sway bar bushings. There are others with bushings but Skuterdude's bushings are of known quality. I have bushings from him that are going on 8 years and they still look like new. Well except for the dirt. GRIN Richard
