RE: Broken Down any suggestions

Mobile mechanic on the way but thought I ask if anyone has any suggestions for quick fix. Pulled in to fuel up shut engine off now the complete dash is dead and won't start. Workhorse 24 chassis and yes batteries are good, won't even let me use house batteries. Any help appreciated did you maybe hit the chassis and coach battery disconnect switches?? I've inadvertently done that with my foot as I exit the coach many times. X-2, I do this all the time!

RE: Can basement of 1994 Damon Intruder take weight of scooterr?

I used to carry some pretty heavy stuff in my motorhome compartment. I lined mine with 3/4 plywood from side to side, and you could also put metal strapping under the plywood and up to frame mounts to help carry the load. The more the plywood helps spread the load, the better it will be. X-2, this is the way I would go! Plywood is very strong and distributes the weight of the scooter.

RE: Joining the A ranks!

4X4, you finally gave up on that Jambo, good for you! I did the same thing and likewise bought a 04 Winnebago a long time ago. Your really going to like the upgrade and when you get used to driving the Class A you will wish that you would have done it sooner.

RE: Broke down days from home, what would you do?

Brian, sorry to hear about your breakdown. When my coach was T-Boned in Lake Havasu City, AZ. we were down for 8 weeks (Winnebago was on Christmas Vacation for 3 weeks so we couldn't get any parts). What we did is packed up both dogs and our parrot into the tow car and headed home. We made arrangements with the paint shop to store our coach until we could get back to LHC, after are coach was painted. Are Insurance Company, Geico, paid for everything and they called us everyday to make sure everything was O.K. with us. Good Luck to you!

RE: Cat C9 Engine

I'm a retired truckdriver! When I was working I had a CAT C-9 motor in my Peterbuilt Semi and, I went 1,200,000 miles before the engine was rebuilt (in frame) the first time. The C-9 engine was then rebuilt two other times before I retired. I guess what I'm trying to tell you is you will wear out the inside of your RV before you wear out that motor. IMHO CAT's were the greatest diesel engines ever built.

RE: Do shops ever fix something on the first try?

Yes, the ones who really know how to troubleshoot, usually been around awhile.

RE: Campsite Length Restrictions for MH

I have a 36' coach in length, overall the only parking difficulties, I've encountered have been in U.S. Forest Service CG's and National Park CG's. They seem to cater to smaller length vehicles.

RE: Confession of bad parking

Being a retired truckdriver that is the correct thing too do. Remember GOAL (Get, Out, And, Look)! I learned that in the Smith defensive driving class that I haven taken several times. Also, the instructor said when your backing up, 3 things can happen and, 2 of those things are bad. Sorry to hear about the damage.

RE: shower stall crack

Eternabond Tape.... X-2, might not look good but it will stop the leak. And that's the main thing, you don't want water leaking into your coach as you know.

RE: Good Black flush "trick" or bad idea?

If it works for you O.K.! Not my cup of tea. I drain black then gray then turn on the oscillator to clean everything. Then I shut all valves and put 1/2 cup Blue Dawn in black tank followed with 5 gallons and let it slosh around until I get to next destination, then drain.

RE: Looking for Suggestions

I would use it for storage and cover it with a picture.

RE: 5 Star Tune and Ford Warranty

Outside of my coach being new, I've never had a warranty.

RE: Is the engine dying a serious issue in a '94 Damon Intruder?

I had that happened to me just one time. The problem was in the accelerator pedal sensor. My coach was gas powered with Workhorse Chassis W-22.

RE: Leveling the RV

As for the refrigerator being level, as long as the coach is level enough for comfortable living, it's close enough according to both Dometic and Norcold. X-2

RE: 30 ft- one roof air sufficient?

I owned a 31' coach a long time ago that had one air conditioner and it didn't do well in temps from 90* to 127* that I've been in with that coach.

RE: What are the proper ways to keep batteries charged.

Hi, I chose to install a modest solar system. My batteries love it. X-2

RE: Residential vs Repair RV Fridge

Owning a Winnebago with a glued windshield taking the windshield out is a no go for me.
