RE: length to wheel base ratio

Wheel base to over all length ratio is more forum/internet nonsense. MY 95 Bounder has a ratio of .479 and it drives great! 190" wheel base, 33' long. Best thing is the turning. Then there is the diesel owners talking about rear over hang on the gassers. My gasser has a 13' over hang. Diesel pushers have a 12'+ over hang, depending on chassis. More forum/internet chatter. Bah Humbug! You'll see folks telling how horrible or how great their rig drives, no matter the ratio or total length. No one can document the ratio thing. If set up correctly, they all drive well. Richard It's called physics. OK, any one can say a work. Can you detail what you said? Richard

RE: Class A MA Propane Storage in Garage

just looking for some info. I live in MA I have a class A motor home with what I believe to be a 40 pound propane tank, I am building a garage attached to my house to store my RV in when I am not using it. I need to get a variance for side yard setback. One of the conditions the fire department is requiring is that I store no more than 2.7 pounds per living unit and no more than 5.4 aggregate pounds of propane in cylinders. Was wondering if anyone knows a way around this requirement. The tank is built into the chassis so I cannot remove it and store it outside. So my feeling is do they want me to empty the tank before I put it into the garage.? I will talk to the fire department to see if there is a misunderstanding about the tank. As I read your post, the code is referring to DOT CYLINDERS. You coach has an ASME TANK. I don't think you have a problem. Richard

RE: Winwguard Batwing Antenna

Sorry to disagree, but my sensar didn't come from the factory with a wall plate wiith a switch, many don't. I still had pretty fair reception. I did add a simple inline aftermarket booster for about $30, but the best addition was the wingman. In one rv park we pulled in 82 channels OTA. I have pulled them in from pretty close to 65 miles. No you don't have to have the thingamabob. There is a cheaper Winegard batwing with out a built in amplifier. It was used in many pull behinds as an economic measure for the builders. Sooooooooo that's why you don't have a switch on the wall. Richard

RE: Early 90's F53 Trans shift cable

I believe this is the correct cable. 88-97 should be the same cable for F53 E4OD transmissions. Most shifter cable failures are from exhaust heat from after market headers and no heat shields. Richard

RE: gun laws in New York

well heres the problem. All cops in all states have the ability to run plate numbers. Mine would show that I have a carry permit from Michigan. Would that give them the right to stop me a do a search. Is that probable cause? Are you sure??? Florida laws keep my carry permit status unobtainable except for a specific instance when it is required by law. In other words, any police running a standard license check will not find out about my carry permit. Michigan may be different but you should check with what their laws are about the confidentiality of carry permit holders. X2 Missouri. Richard

RE: gun laws in New York

The federal gun laws do allow you to transport a hand gun through any state, unloaded and in a lock box. But NY, being what it is, renders "through" void when you stop, even for lunch. Long guns must be unloaded and in a commercial gun case. The possession of any fire arm in New York City with out a New York City licence is strictly prohibited. But individuals transporting standard rifles and shot guns through the city may do so for a period of 24 hours after entering the city, if the weapons are unloaded and locked in a case. I do recommend Travelers Guide to Fire Arm Laws of the 50 States $14.95, if you intend to provide for your own safety. You may still travel with a fire extinguisher, tool box and band aids, for those "just in case moments". :B Richard

RE: No Power To Fuel Pump.

You get 12 volts to the fuel pump, only when, 1: for 3 1/2 seconds when key is turned on 2: when starter is engaged 3: when oil pressure comes up and oil pressure switch closes. Richard

RE: wheel simulator installation

If your simulators are from Dicor........you can buy new extenders from them.......www.dicorproducts.com I found some of the simulator nuts with bad threads. I welded the bad threads and retapped them. Richard That's a lot of work for a $3.05 pieces part :B But I live in the part of the world where work is not a dirty word. GRIN Then I took the coins that I saved and bought a burger and malt. Richard

RE: wheel simulator installation

The ding-dong tire changers used their impact wrench to install the simulator nuts and striped the threads on the nuts. My simulators rely on the very same limited amount of threads and I won't allow a tire shop to touch them. They need to be gently hand tightened only. When I purchased my coach used, I found some of the simulator nuts with bad threads. I welded the bad threads and retapped them. Richard

RE: 13.5K BTU vs 15.0K BTU Air Conditioners -- HOW????

I also thought I was getting more than a 22 degree drop. So I went in to my 81 degree coach and started my 1995 13.5 Coleman. At 15 minutes I had 68 degrees at the return duct and 46 degrees at the cold outlet. Color me wrong! Thanks all for your educated/experienced responses. Richard

RE: Holiday Rambler Vacationer 1997

Open hood. It's on the drivers side, close to edge of radiator, independent of pump, black round tank with twist off cap on top. Same fluid is also used for your power brakes. (hydro boost) Richard

RE: Generac gene 7.5KW shutting down

Maybe a Kill A Watt meter should be your next expense? Then you'll know voltage and frequency at time of shut down. Richard

RE: autoformers for dummies (me)

As I see it, you pay for 30/50 amp, 120 volt service. If the camp ground has low voltage, they are stealing from you. You are just recovering what you pay for with an autoformer. Consider the cost of the autoformer, legal fees. You're not the guilty one, it's the campground. If you neighbor want to continue to pay for service he's not getting, you're not to blame. Richard

RE: Generac gene 7.5KW shutting down

At 11 years old and 2333 hours, I'm thinking loose or wore out fan/water pump belt. I would think the maintenance schedule would have called for belt maintenance by now. Could it be the radiator fins are full of dirt and bugs? Richard

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

With all the viscosity index improvers needed to meet that wide spread in a conventional oil, you're not at all concerned about viscosity breakdown? That is exactly why Onan didn't want multi-viscosity oil in their engines. Air cooled engines run hot enough to breakdown the VIs. 10W30 Non-Synthetic oil requires aprox. 11 percent VI. 10W40 requires 17+ percent VI. VI is not abrasive no is it a lubricant. Many years ago, GM would cancel the warranty if they found 10W40 in the engine. Some 10W30 synthetics do not require VI. So it should not be a problem in air cooled engines. Most 10W40 synthetics do require a small amount of VI. I am privileged to have a petroleum engineer as a friend. The above info. comes from his desk. Richard An old wives tale from decades old ago that never went entirely away. VW used to also recommend straight weight oils. But that changed many years ago as multi viscosity oil improved. Can you document your statement? Or are you just repeating rhetoric? Richard
