RE: How many of us are there? Owners of Dodge based RV's?

My RM300 requires the 300-350 lb-ft as well.

Great progress. I'm very sorry about Max :(

RE: How many of us are there? Owners of Dodge based RV's?

Got our fuel pumps from the local LAPS. I think I bought the regulator online, but I cannot remember now. It’s adjustable and, I think, a Holley. Maybe a Carter. Here’s our setup, with one pump and the regulator hiding behind the hoses. We have three tanks, an electric pump at each tank, switches on the dash to select from which pump to feed (and you cannot accidentally choose more than one). Each hose goes into a three-way air hose chuck, then the single output (since we use it backwards) goes to the regulator, then to the carb. We did re-route our fuel line to get most of it out of the engine compartment and into cooler air. https://s20.postimg.cc/tu46ggisd/4_D174_A3_D-5_CC6-4_DD1-_AC79-374_E43_DACF2_F.jpg

RE: How many of us are there? Owners of Dodge based RV's?

Yay go me lol now how do i fix it Install an electric fuel pump close to the fuel tank, instead of the sucky engine mounted pump. 'Push' is easier and more reliable than 'pull.' This. And yes, a fuel pressure regulator mounted up by the engine. That’s what we did.

We use Castrol 20w50. We never drive it in the winter, but if we had to I'd change to Castrol 10w30.

RE: How many of us are there? Owners of Dodge based RV's?

Who's bored? I'm interested in the discussion. And yes, thanks to Griff and Richard Ehrenburg on Allpar.com, we have an idiot light and gauge for oil pressure in our RV. The light sure does get your attention and the gauge tells you why.

Yup, damaged by ignorance.

RE: How many of us are there? Owners of Dodge based RV's?

The phenolic bowls do warp or crack, but not due to heat. You can hit one with a torch and it won’t get hot (told to me by my old parts guy who knows these old rigs - he said a salesman used to go around and do just that, then toss the bowl to someone after pretending it was a hot potato). They warp or crack due to overtightening of the screws.

I remembered: he filed out the accelerator pump jets a very little bit at a time until it sped up smoothly from idle.

RE: How many of us are there? Owners of Dodge based RV's?

Ethanol problem? We had a problem just off idle and my husband had to pump the pedal to get it going. Once I remember what he used a carb file on to make just a little bigger, I’ll post back. It is mentioned somewhere in this monster thread, but it’s late and I’m tired.

RE: How many of us are there? Owners of Dodge based RV's?

I got lucky; all 6 of my rims are the same (actually, all 8 'cause we have 2 spares).

Yeah, they really do look good.

RE: How many of us are there? Owners of Dodge based RV's?

^ that was my plan. Brush loose stuff off, wipe down, paint with white paint. And I had planned on keeping the tank info/plate/markings visible.

RE: How many of us are there? Owners of Dodge based RV's?

Definitely a new tank and definitely a new regulator. For a couple bucks on both, why risk it? Our permanent tank is in great shape. We did replace the regulator with a new one because the original was leaking a bit and I plan on cleaning and painting the tank this summer to make it look a bit better, but there are no pits or rusty areas. The propane place is 3 miles away and they inspect and fill the tank for us. There was a gas station 2 miles away that would fill the tank for slightly less than the propane place, but they moved to 6 miles away and lost their jobber status so their price went higher than the propane place.

RE: How many of us are there? Owners of Dodge based RV's?

Fingers crossed for you. I hope you’re well in the 80%. Mine is healing and advancing (about 1° from straight, bending fully, twisting is getting better and strengthening), but today’s weather really hurts.

RE: How many of us are there? Owners of Dodge based RV's?

Believe me, I (literally) feel your elbow pain. No really, I do. Especially today. This is what's going on in mine (broke it Jun 10, surgery Jun 17). Fully healed but still working out the stiffness and kinks... https://s20.postimg.org/bx6w67d6l/4weeks_1.jpg I tripped on my top concrete step (of five) and landed on the concrete walkway below). I chose to land on my right (I'm lefty) elbow rather than my head. So it's cracked from the distal humurus (the top part of the elbow) up to the big break you can see, then it exploded, creating a displaced break there. He had to put 7 plates and 13 screws in, along with 2cc of demineralized bone matrix.

You also can ship via Greyhound bus, for cheaper than regular freight carriers (there are height and weight limits, but I got a long block that way once).

RE: How many of us are there? Owners of Dodge based RV's?

I just told Pat that if I never get around to Junior, you get the engine when I die. There's lots of empty cargo capacity dead-heading back to the Lower 48. It takes a bit of searching but you can find very good rates. One person shipped a rare engine to the East coast and it only cost $50 more than it would have cost to ship it from Seattle to Florida, Pat and your husband could commiserate ... they both have to rein in our wilder impulses. Excellent - thanks! Yeah, poor Pat and Sam...at least we have a big yard and no HOA ;)

RE: How many of us are there? Owners of Dodge based RV's?

Mine's a Class A with the 440-3, aka industrial version, but I would love to own a 413, which was only available as an industrial version...I'm not sure I'll ever get around to the Junior project. So, you might be able to talk me out of the 413 that's in Junior. (If so, and I get around to that project, I'd consider putting a Hemi in it.) Yeah, but I'd have to get it from Alaska to Maryland... I could be tempted, however, but my husband might kill me...
