RE: Generator air filter cleaning

I've also spent many years on a dirt bike. You've be given good advice. Go to the bike or ORV shop and get some proper filter oil. Richard

Kind of reminded me of this. Richard

RE: Kwikee Doorstep

Doug, is this the linkage that you refer to as being not available? All three versions of the linkage are available. Richard

RE: fuel pump and sender module

Rock Auto has the pump you need for your 1997 F53 chassis. Use the PFS48, listed on the bottom of the page. $330.79. Ford did not build a 1998 model year F53 chassis. 1998 Ford based Class A motorhomes are built on 97 (460) or 99 (V10) model year F53 chassis. Richard

RE: Screw Hole Too Big

I use Elmers wood glue and tooth picks, wooden matches or golf tees, depending on the job. Richard

RE: How do they do that?

Here is how I made the change over on my 95 Bounder. Please pardon the off topic pix. Richard

RE: Necessity of a spare?

I have been RVing for 19 years and have had 3 flats. I carry a spare and the necessary tools and have the expertize to change a tire. I had one flat where there was NO cell phone service, credit cards and naps wouldn't work then. Richard

RE: this is a serious tech question

I did a Google and it was worse than pwm/mppt or AGM/Wets! Seems there are different pipe dopes rated for different things. One guy said it was ok with natural gas but not with LP. Anyway it is another thing where you need to read the specs and the fine print and cross your fingers. One thing was they say the tape is just a lubricant so you can tighten more. All I know with a water line is it leaks without the white tape, so the tape must be a sealer---unless it lets me tighten more so it doesn't leak! Arrgghh. Rather talk about something else. Anything else! :) I wondered how long it was going to take to get to the truth. Teflon tape and pipe dope are to be used only on Nation Pipe Threads. (tapered pipe fittings) Tape and pipe dope are used by professionals as a lubricant NOT a sealer. It allows the 2 treaded pieces to slide past each other with less friction, thus allowing the treads to form a seal. Anti-seize, grease, oil and spit will work when pipe dope and tape are not available. Richard

RE: Electric Heater Recommendations?

For those of you that boondock in cooler weather, what kind of supplemental heat do you use in your rig? My wife uses the snuggle method for supplemental heat. Bring on the cold! Richard

RE: Wiring four 6V Batteries--is this the best method?

Keep the interconnect wires one size larger than the connections to the RV. If each 12 volt group only carries ½ of the load, why make the interconnect wires one size larger then the main feed wires going to the coach/charger? Thanks Richard

RE: Water heater problem, need advice

Mike, Look at the circuit board plug-in connector more closely. Those contacts are supposed to be bowed. They sometimes loose their tension and go flat and need to be re-bowed with a dental pick. I learned that the hard way on my 95 Bounder with Atwood water heater. Richard

RE: Fuse box problem 1995 Bounder HELP!

Mike, I have a 95 Bounder but I lost all my wiring prints when I changed computers. Go to IRV2.com and post your question in the Ford Motorhome Chassis Forum. There is a fellow on there called subford. He is VERY knowledgeable and helpful. He should have the Ford wiring print you need. Richard

RE: FMCA Rally, Indio.

Count us in. We'll be traveling alone. Maybe someone familiar with the area would care to set up an eye to eye for us forum members.

RE: F-53 suspension sagging on passenger side

I elected to use Firestone air bags on the rear of my 95 F53. They are only $319.99 for your chassis at SDTruckSprings. The only draw back is checking the air pressure when checking the tires. Mine require some air every 30 days. Never could get them sealed up any better. A spacer block will require an alignment hole on one side and an alignment pin on the other. It's not as easy as just whacking out a 4" piece of steel. Then you may need longer "U" bolts. Richard

RE: Hydraulic levelers to change tire

Buster, I've use the on board levelers many times to get a tire off the ground and then slide jack stands under the RV. Check the capacity of your jacks. I suspect that they are rated to lift your RV off the ground. You MUST block the front tires when raising a rear tire off the ground. I carry a bottle jack capable of lifting a rear tire when on the road. I unload the suspension some and then finish the lift with the bottle jack. Please be safe! Richard 95 Bounder F53
