RE: Repairing water damage to sidewall

I used FRP panels when I rebuilt mine. I think I glued FRP to the remaining fiberglass, then plywood, then another layer of FRP to make the thickness correct. Fiberglass Reinforced Panels.

RE: Repairing water damage to sidewall

Had a similar problem on mine. I rebuilt it from the inside out. Still looks brand new and no more leaks.

coleman-mach hp2 high performance heat pump service manual

Anyone have one? My unit works fine in cooling mode but does not provide heat in heat pump mode. Running, no heat. When looking up into the unit I could see ice on the coil. Only 65deg outside. THanks.

RE: Rvparkreviews.com

I dig rvparkreviews.com and find it my "go to" website when planning travel. Changes made in past few years didn't bother me. It's free.

RE: Do Chromebooks Spit & Gulp on Startup??

I have a beautiful powerful laptop collecting dust on the shelf. Once I went with a Chromebook there was no going back. Light, quick, cool, just the ticket for browsing. Still use desktop for heavy use.

RE: Onan 5500 Longevity? Valve Adj?

ON old RV had 6200 hours on 5500, ran like clock. call onan for valve work. JMOThat's a lot of hours. Good to know they can potentially last that long :) The Onan 5500 manual says it's necessary to "Adjust Valve Lash" and "Clean or Replace Cylinder Heads" every 450 hours. Adjusting the valves seems reasonable . . . however, not sure what to make of the requirement to pull/clean both heads (and potentially replace them) every 450 hours :?I put sea foam in the tank and then run the genny. I once took my RV to a cummins place to have them work on the generator. They made it worse.

RE: Onan 5500 Longevity? Valve Adj?

RE: Diesel engine failure?

I think it comes down to economics. Cost of the rebuild verses the value of the coach. I currently own a 10 year old gas rig with a V10. If the engine blew tomorrow it would probably be a hard sell to front the cost of a rebuild considering how much the coach is worth. Change the coach to a 10 year old diesel and I might be more inclined to take on the cost. Then again as a shade tree mechanic would be an interesting project to do a V10 overhaul in the driveway.What is the cost of a new V10 crate from Ford? I heard around 5-8K? That really isn't too bad if a new engine is need considering the cost of a new RV. If you maintain the coach like I do, slapping in a new engine at 200K miles is not that bad.

RE: Rural PA roads may be a Crock

We shake our heads in disgust every time we cross over into PA from MD or DE on back roads. The PA roads are horrible. Some of the highest taxes I have seen and the worse roads. As an someone who has lived in 2 of 3 locations, and driven in all 3, if MD and DE had the thaw/freeze cycles that PA does thief roads would be in the same shape. In fact, when the winters in MD match intensity of PA ( as they have twice in 10 years), the roads fail exactly the same way. Easily observable...This area I am specifically talking about is around Chester County, etc. Freeze thaw, not likely. The roads suck, plain and simple, PA roads are horrible.

RE: Shower Skylight Replacement

Do you really need the skylight? Is the skylight so you can take a shower (provide extra ceiling height in the shower) or is it for light? I replaced mine and regret it now. What is the point? My ceiling was high enough I didn't need the height, nor did I need the light. I should have just stuck a piece of aluminum over the roof opening and eternabonded it.

Spare Parts To Carry

Just when does it end? From past experience I carry a generator board, HWH pump, HWH misc. parts, spare tire, starter, AC unit caps, Lord knows how many tools I probably don't need, etc. I carry so many parts that I had to make a list of them and keep it in the parts bin as I just can't recall how many parts I have. When does it end? Today the topic I just read was water pumps. Do I need to carry a spare water pump as I don't want to be without water? Some places I camp are far from decent supply places.

RE: Lost a pin on the tow bar. Don't use these pins!!

In both cases, both my tow bar pins were just plain missing. Again, the first time I though, wow, maybe I had it backwards but since I have farm machinery and such, I am careful of how I hook things up. Second time, no way. Something gave with those pins and they were gone. Just won't use them again. No chance of removal by evil people or anything either. This was a direct stop/go. No stopping anywhere.

http://blueox.com/products/tow-bar/84-0140-kit-tow-bar-pins-with-clip-2-each/ These hitch pins are the only ones that I'll use....Have had two of them fail. Won't use again. Yes, they were in the correct way. I use this type now. http://images.oreillyauto.com/parts/img/medium/spc/s070940zbulowres.jpg height=300 width=300

RE: Horrific towing incident

I'm not sure if anyone will be able to get to this link. It's on Facebook. I felt compelled to post it. An uncaring driver Cut off some people who were telling a horse trailer. It was a disaster! The horses were killed. This link shoul work. Sorry if it doesn't. Facebook can be quirky. Horrific is people killed. Sad is an animal being killed. Why is it that animal lovers in this country seem to value animal life over human. Animals were made to be eaten, horses, dogs, etc. You're sick.Thank you and talk to me again when the world food production collapses and you have to choose between a pet and starvation.
