RE: Brakes on C5500 Kodiak

Come to find out the rear calipers were stuck and wore off the outside of the rotors nearly to the vents in the center of the rotor. It appears that because of the weight of these rigs there is a lot of brake bias to the rear brakes. Not like a regular car or truck where the front brakes do the majority of the braking. So I got new calipers, rotors, pads and seals on the rear and the fronts are still good. It is difficult to see the rotor the way everything is covered. You need to pull the wheels to get a good look. Jeff :)

Brakes on C5500 Kodiak

Has anyone replaced their Kodiak's brakes? I've noticed a grinding noise from the front brakes lately. There is alot of pad still there at least 3/8ths of an inch. Also the pedal is feeling soft. I plan to get them checked soon. Just bracing myself for the cost. LOL. Thanks. Jeff :)

RE: 2004 GS Endura Power Cable From Gen to Battery

Due to my poor maintenance of the coach battery cable ends the hydraulics ran intermittently. Also the generator was not running and giving a code 27. I put new ends on the cables and both ( hydraulics and generator) are happy now. Jeff

RE: Fresh water tank don't take water?

Back when we had our old Class C with a gravity feed tank fill, I used a homemade version of a water tank filler like this one from Camping World. It completely eliminated "blow back" under most conditions. http://i.imgur.com/yTWEmX8l.jpg width=300 Seeing the picture of that reminds me........I still have the clear tube part down in my hose/tank. It blew off the yellow plastic shut off when filling one day about 7 yrs. ago. Still have the yellow shut off valve :B Mine came off too but I caught it and use a hose clamp to keep it on. First time I tried to fill mine I dicovered it liked it better fast than slow. Slow it would run back out. Jeff

RE: Fueling the Kodiak

When I put the 91 gallons in the other day my Scangauge said it would take 89.7. Just over 600 miles on a tank of gas not diesel. Using the AC and towing the Wrangler too. Takes it a long time to come off the full. It has to be leaning to the passenger side and fill it slowly. Jeff

RE: Refrigerator Replacement

Don't want to do a residential refrigerator because we do boondock sometimes. We don't have solar panels either, just two 12 volt batteries. It seems like Norcold had/has a bad reputation or has that changed? The repair guy mentioned going with a Norcold. I just thought I'd ask for opinions between the two brands. Thanks. Jeff You got 10 yrs out of that Dometic. I would just do a cooling unit replacement. I didn't know that was a option. I'm not refrigerator savvy. As long as the food and beer is cold I'm good. I'll check into that. Thanks. Jeff

Fueling the Kodiak

We've had ours for over 8 years and have fulltimed for the last 4. A few years ago while fueling it was leaning to the right and it took more fuel than I thought it would. So I started dropping the left rear jack to make sure it leans to the right.The other day I ran the tank down to where the needle just touched the red. The 80 gallon tank took 91 gallons. Didn't spill a drop either. Any one else do this? Jeff :)

Refrigerator Replacement

My 10 year old Dometic RM 2852 died. I'll replace it with a similar size unit. Do I go with another Dometic or a Norcold? We are fulltimers so it will be working all the time. Thanks. Jeff :)

RE: CW has our RV for 13 months and counting

How do you know how much they made on the deal? I know what I traded it in for and I know how much it sold for. I had to get a mount out of it that I forgot. I was their the day it sold. After that it's simple math. You'd think they step up and make some payments after all the damage they did and how long they kept it. So your RV was in their shop for how many months then at Workhorse. It can't be fixed, you trade it in. It is fixed and sold in 2 weeks. That's not fishy to you? And they continue to jerk you around on the second rig. They have lied to you over and over but you take what they say as gospel. Good Luck. Jeff

RE: CW has our RV for 13 months and counting

Now it's in Camping Worlds corporates hands. We'll see what happens. They certainly made enough money off my trade (which they sold in 2 weeks and made over 15k on the sale) and the sale of a new RV to cover some of my payments for all my shop time. We're only going to keep this RV for aprox. 3-4 years and then we're moving up to full time and a Winnebago Tour or similar from Newmar. If CW wants a shot at that sale then they better do right by us. My question is that CW used my extended warranty to do final repairs my coach, who signed off on those repairs? Don't you think it's "funny" that once the coach became CW's it got fixed and sold in 2 weeks? How do you know how much they made on the deal? If they know they can jerk you around they will and that's not just a CW issue. They would be making the payments on it for the time they are keeping me from using my rig. If they lied to you once you think they aren't lying about the ability to get parts? C'mon man! Jeff

RE: Hutchinson and Abilene Kansas

While in Hutch go to the space museum. A must see. I was there in May could have used a whole day at the Cosmosphere. Stayed at the State Fairgrounds just blocks away and the Salt mine was about 5 miles away. Full hookups too. Jeff :)

RE: Hitting the Road Full Time

Congrats on the retirement! Have you RVed in Baja before? We just took an RV tour in Feb./March and the highway, Mex 1 is real narrow in places. WE went all the way to Cabo. I hit drivers side mirrors with a garbage truck just south of Loreto, BCS both doing near 80 KPH. The people are friendly and there isn't any Low Sulfur diesel in BCS. Just a heads up. Have fun. Jeff

RE: Leaving kids unattended in RV all day?

I don't think anyone has said go talk to the Mother? Maybe she would like some help. You could probably find out what's going on instead of speculating and guessing. She may need a friend or she may tell you where to go. Talk to the Mother before you do anything. Jeff

RE: Honda eu3000 overload running carrier air v for 5 minutes

Since the generator has some age and unknown hours i would check spark arrestor screen on exhaust to make sure it is clean. If its not it will have reduced power. Did you try this? Jeff

RE: Ever had your mirrors hit by a pasing truck?

Three months ago on an RV tour in Baja California Mexico. Mex 1 gets pretty narrow. North bound just south Loreto, BCS a south bound garbage truck hit my driver side mirror. We were both doing about 45 or 50 MPH in opposite directions. The arm and mirror motors was all that was left. It went with a bang. I pulled over as soon as I could and he was no where in sight. To finish the trip I swapped the right mirror to the left side and used the back up camera until I got back to Texas. Found a replacement online for $250 including shipping. Three others got their mirrors hit on the trip too. Jeff

RE: National General has lost my business!_

How many of you check the plumbing under your shower? I noticed something running down the right rear tire cover. When I pulled the cover to see under the shower there was the p-trap just hanging there. The factory had glued the connection together instead of the correct way. We have vinyl floors never noticed any water (no carpet to get wet). Over time the floor in the bathroom, hall and out toward the kitchen area got soft. Very costly repair. I repaired the shower drain with a rubber coupling. Sure would've been nice to get some help from insurance for the floor repair. I don't believe it was a lack of maintenance on my part. Jeff

RE: Springs or Bags

I have Supersprings and the ride is fine with or without the racecar trailer. I don't worry about losing air either. Check them out. http://supersprings.com/ Jeff
