RE: Ford E450 - Inspect / Lubricate U Joints?

What about the tie rods and king pins ? Our E-350 '03 has plugs in them. Dusty

RE: Power Outage

It's a very good practice to turn everything off thats protected by the GFCI before resetting the GFCI. There is a set of contacts in the GFCI and they burn up easy when closed under load. Dusty

RE: '87 Falcon - Sliding storage compartment

I wonder if the slides are like drawer slides and have releases that will let them be removed ?

RE: leveling jacks

We have a 24' Itasca, no levelers. I put a cat's eye/round level on the dog house where I can see it from the driver's seat. Often times I can get the rig level just by moving it around on the lot.

RE: Minnie Winnie 24ft

We have an '02 24' Itasca. It's on an E-350 with the V-10. Sounds like it has the same floor plan. We like it, bought it new in the fall of '02.

RE: Lazy daze 24 FD

We have an Itasca 24' Spirit. We go to antiqut tractor shows, family camp outs, and spend the winter in Florida in it. When we spend most of our time out doors, it's great. If the weather keeps us inside for a week, then it gets to seem rather small. Dusty

RE: House Batteries

Most all mh charge their batteries, both engine and coach/house, while the engine is running. Have a good trip. Dusty

RE: GFCI Risks? Update

GFCIs do go bad. Yours did. I once replaced a full size upright deep freeze, only to find a bad GFCI outlet. DW was NOT happy. Compressor type refrigation equipment and GFCI's do not get along well. Best not to plug a refigator/freezer into a GFCI receiptical.

RE: Reflections on 6 Months of RV Research! ;)

We have an Itasca 24' on a Ford E-350 and have never felt that the chassis was too narrow. We found it new. If we had ordered it new, would we have ordered an E-450? I don't know.

RE: Heat & AC t-stat

Let us try some real numbers. Say you set the heat to 73 and the cool to 74. The heat comes on at 72 and runs till it hits 74. The cool comes on at 75 and runs till it hits 73. Usually, the temp continues to either climb or slide a little after the unit turns off. If the heat cuts off at 74, but climbs to 75 before it stabilizes, the cool suddenly comes on. If the cool cuts off at 73, but slides to 72 before it stabilizes, the heat suddenly comes on. This is a no win situation. Even a 2* difference is cutting it close. I keep a 5* difference, and use a jacket if it gets cool. I use 69* for heat and 74* for cool. Not on a non-programable t-stat because you MUST manually change a switch from heat to cool and back.

RE: Stupid Question on Generators

Old-Crows. Very good write up, except, if you use 15 gallons, getting to your camp site, with the 3/4 tank generator dip tube in a 20 gallon tank, there will be nothing left for the generator. Question. If a diesel generator runs out of fuel, do you have to bleed the fuel injector pump? If so, is it a difficult job ? Is this one more strike against a diesel generator ? Dusty

RE: Right LED tail light staying on

Different problem but might be the same. I have a 20' flat bed trailer with break way brake system with it's own battery. That system charges it's battery when in use. But for some reason it will drain it's battery when sitting, not plugged in and sitting for a long time. I have to remember to unplug it's battery when not in use. Then remember to plug the battery in when I use it. Before I had a smaller trailer with break away brakes, but it did not have the charging system and it never drained the battery between uses. Dusty

RE: Heat & AC t-stat

But at 2* it gets too cool before it turns off, and then too warm before it restarts. Dusty

Heat & AC t-stat

We have an '03 Itasca Spirit. The t-stat is a RV Comfort NC ColemanMack. On AC the differential is 2*. Is there any way to change it to 1* ? Thanks.

RE: DIY Pressure Testing for Rain Leaks

You read the difference between the two sides. Or one half inch of movement on one side equals one inch.

RE: Anyone using Tire Pressure Monitors??

I use a hand held radiant thermometer and check when we stop. I have caught a soft tire a couple of times.

RE: Expansion tank electrical question

With a 2 gallon accumulator tank I can turn the pump off when going to bed and still have enough water to use the bath room a few times during the night.

RE: Water pump airlock??

Leave a faucent open and let the pump run until water comes out. It does not hurt the pump to run without water, so let it run.

RE: Class C Cabover Rebuild

Or use 2 layers of 3/8" plywood and stager the joints, cost more but would be much stronger.

RE: Generator propane/Natural gas conversion big sale

This past summer I was searching for a LP powered generator for home back-up. I found one that I had never heard of, so I was doing a little research on it. Found a link, don't remember where, that was for asking the manufacture about it. I guy stated he and a neighbor both had purchased a gasoline fired one, and his neighbor had convered his to LP. And that his neighbors now smoked a little, while his did not. The person answering stated that LP fires at a much higher temperatue, it was stated the degrees but I don't remember, and that now the warranty on the converted LP one was now void. Many years ago I was thinking of converting a farm tractor to LP. The local LP supplier stated that I would need to have the head machined down to raise the compression on the engine.
