RE: Sprinter Class C questions

We tow 6000lb with a 2003 24' Itasca, using a weight distribution 6000lb/750lb hitch. This works very well for us. It is with the V-10. We would like to get a new 27' mh but don't think a wd hitch will work with that much added over hang.

Weight Distribution hitch

We have a 24' class C mh with a wd hitch rated at 6000lb/750lb. We are looking at a new 27' mh that has a hitch rated at 5000lb/350lb, it does not have a rating for a wd hitch. Does a 27' mh have too much over hang for a wd hitch? Both of these mh are Winnebagos. The last I knew Winnebago builds their frame extensions to Ford specifications. Thanks, Dusty

Four Winds

We have an Itasca and have been very happy with it and Winnebago. We are now looking at a new Four Winds by Thor. Is Thor as good to work with as Winnebago? Has anyone had any big problems with Thor? Thanks, Dusty

RE: Plumbing Water Stream Issue?

The hot water was slow at our bath room sink. I took the faucet off the sink and found the blockage in the faucet before the valve. Dusty

RE: 3000 Miles from home - brake issues...... THoughts?

If the truck cord connector has round pins, and they have slots in them and the one for the breaks may just need spreading. Take a small screw driver or jack knife, and gently spread it. I've had that problem with trailer lights. Dusty

RE: LP leaking at main valve

Not sure but I think that type valve is one that when it's open all the way it prevents the stem from leaking. CAUTION Using a steel wrench can cause a spark. Not good around leaking LP. Dusty

RE: emergency portable air compressor

I've been carrying a 12V compressor in every vehicle for many years. Because they are slow I always bought ones that you can set to turn off at the pressure needed, then you don't need to stand there and watch it. Dusty

RE: Heater

I added an electric Toe Kick heater. Basically it's an electric furnace. There was room under our refrigerator basically. I used the same circuit that the air-conditioner, they don't both use power at the same. It's not very noisy and I added a programable T-stat to it. We spend the winter in out RV in Florida.

RE: Myth that socket extensions change torque wrench readings

It only changes the torque if you add length, like a crows foot. If it's just a normal extension to get to a deeper bolt/nut then no toque difference. That's what I've always understood- extensions like this: http://ecx.images-amazon.com/images/I/31XAsWzKkVL._SY300_.jpg require calculation for proper torque. Correct and there is a formula for setting the right torque on an adjustable or the reading on a bar type wrench. The following formula has been used: M1 = M2 x L1 / L2 Where: M1 is the torque setting of the wrench. M2 is the actual torque applied to the nut L1 is the normal length of the wrench L2 is the extended length of the wrench Marvin If you hook that Crow Foot to come off the side, at a right angle you are not adding any length to the torque wrench.

RE: Electrical problem

Sounds like the original solenoid died and you replaced it with one that was not a continuous duty.

RE: Another Stupid Leveling Question.

One thing that I've found that helps is to keep my foot off the brake petal. It's hard not to, because you know you need to stop as soon as you reach you reach the top of the block. Dusty

RE: GFI Again

I would guess that somewhere in your RV the neutral, white wire, and ground, green wire, are touching. Use a volt/ohm meter. With your rig unplugged check for continuity between the ground and neutral prongs on the plug on the shore power cord. There should NOT be any continuity between them.

RE: Sewer connection rework project.

I've taken solvent welded fittings apart a few times. Always only saved one of the 2 fittings, the female one. I've never tried to save the male fitting, but I believe I could. Don't believe both pieces could be saved. Dusty

RE: stabilizer/anti-sway bushing

No outer steel sleeve. I had to drive the rubber bushing in with a hammer. The R-bushing is shaped like a top hat with the top missing. What I would really like to know, will that J.B. Weld hold it, or do I need to do something different ? Dusty

stabilizer/anti-sway bushing

We have 2002 E-350 under our 24' Itasca. The rubber stabilizer bushing came out of the left front axel, It slid up the stabilizer. How are they held in ? I used J.B. Weld to glue it in, and it has held for about 350 miles. Thanks, Dusty

RE: Have A Major Made In China Purchase In Mind?

How many $ do we/US Government owe China? What if they decide they need it all right now?

RE: Ford Fuel pump rant

What is the average miles when the fuel pumps quits? Should one change the pump at a given miles or age, to prevent being stranded? Dusty

RE: Two small modifications - 2007 Itasca Navion

I've wondered if the T/P valve was designed that way so if it opened due to high temperature, it would put the fire in the burner out.

RE: NEMA 14-30R (not 14-30P) to TT-30R?

In VAC terms... WHITE is ALWAYS Neutral GREEN is ALWAYS Ground ANY OTHER COLOR is ALWAYS HOT! ALWAYS use a tester to VERIFY and turn OFF power before playing with it....Dennis Seldom seen but GREY is also always Neutral. Dusty

RE: Sewer Bumper

Our Itasca got rear ended. Dealer fixed it, insurance paid for it. It's made of aluminum.
