I have had a blow out on my right rear tire on my jeep monitor told me right away. It occurred in a work zone so I had no shoulder to pull off for a half a mile. But I was able to slow down and limp to the best possible location to change the tire....ruined the tire saved the rim and jeep fenders.
I might add to the above post. When replacing the shear bolt inspect the holes if there is any sign of the hole being deformed you will have issues with it shearing bolts down the line. I had to cut off and redrill the square tube and also flip end for end the drive shaft pin because my holes were deformed. I have not had a problem since. I might also note that I ordered and am using the factory shear bolts and nuts. They are the exact size needed. I would only use a bolt from a he hardware store to get by in an emergency situation.
I know this is an old thread but my motor died and I went to AutoZone and bought a generic $42 Ford Taurus drivers window motor and related gearing. It worked perfect. It wasn't a Dorman it was just the cheap one they had on the shelf. All I did was pull the big gear off the old one and put it on the new one. No indexing just spiced the wires together ...even the wire colors were the same.
Glad this helped you, that is all I had to do also. What year step do you have?
I have pulled and replaced a cooling unit, and then pulled it again because of a design flaw. Not tough job you will need a helper to lay the refridgerator face down. Took 4-5 hours, I took doors off first. This was done on my previous 96 Coachman Destiny. Today if I am forced into that decision again I will be replacing with a residential.
I always pay cash and have gotten good at guesstimating how much it is going to take eg gauge shows half I'll put $100 in.
Note pump number, wifey runs money in while I do windshield, I pump and leave.
Exactly what I do!
BB TX - this IS new news and is not the same discussion as nobody, even KVH, knew this was about to happen. This change just happened last Thursday (March 17) at 3AM. it affects dish tv subscribers with KVH or Winegard units; i.e. mine is a KVH R6 in-motion box. this is NOT the same issue as the Tracking Parameters software flash (KVH Technical Bulletin 15 & 16) needed to continue to track 119 and 110 on Dish. Direct TV users are still ok.
This has also affected King control units. I have a King 9762, after talking with King controls, and Dish I have a choice, switch over to Direct TV, sign up for a two year contract rent their equipment, or change out the dome for a different unit. King controls stated that they would not be supporting the 9762 any longer. Right now I have an anchor, or a large paper weight sitting on my roof.
