RE: Ford F-53 Chassis - Nude

How much does that cost?

RE: Wheelchair assessable

Born Free makes very high quality, fully customizable Class C Mobility (their term for wheelchair accessible) RVs. The advantage of these units' size is that it's possible to travel without towing a wheelchair accessible vehicle -- which often requires a four-wheel dolly. Also, their steel roll-bar cage design allows for easy installation of a Hoyer-style patient lift. The disadvantage of a class c is the step down into the cab, and the lowered front window. If confined to a wheelchair, a class c just will not work.Thanks. I would like to see pictures of that. Not in our unit, Pirate. For the record, BF has built units with Q'Straint QLK electric tie-downs in the cab, so they've dealt with your concern. Any actual transition between the cab & the coach floor is so short that it can be covered by a piece of 1/4 round molding or a short threshold ramp. But, then, we don't try to bring the chair into the cab; DW uses a B&D transfer seat from the dining area to the front passenger area.

RE: Camping neighbor destroying trees?

I complained to the local manager at a northern MI campground about low trees, next thing I know a tree crew was on site lopping off limbs to I could get in without hitting. O the drive to the site, I scraped like crazy. I got all over the managers case about it. He said it was ok for another rig, bla bla bla.

RE: Ford 5 speed Tranny fluid. Mercon SP or Mercon VL ?

Newer one should be LV. Older could be LV or Mercon, but I think Ford preferred LV. Just google Mercon SP VS LV, you will find more than enough confusing posts. I have been using LV in my 2006 since I owned it. There is a Ford TSB recommending it.

RE: Sault st Marie campsites?

If you are thinking of Aune-Osborn, call ahead to see if they are open. When I was there in May, the entire cg was shut and there was open trenching down every road and alongside each site. If open now, they have done a lot of work in a fairly short period of time.It's open but you should call and try and get a site before showing up.

RE: GPS - RV specific or not?

I have a Dezl 760lmt. I use it in auto mode. In RV mode, the routing is terrible. I like that model because of the programmable dashboard areas.

RE: Park Power Low

Had another real hot couple of days with no extra rv's around. Power dipped low again. Others are right, campground wiring sucks. Owner says he has talked to power company but I never walked over and looked at park panel to see if these sites are all individual back to main panel or tied together. Nothing I can do about it, it's the only decent campground to stay at when visiting granddaughter. Think I will skip the middle of summer and plan for spring or fall. Sitting in a different place down the road, still 95 deg, but no power issues at all. Showing around 118 on both legs, both ac's cranking, and no hickups running microwave with ac unit on.

RE: Air Bags and Brake Proportioning Valve

I could find no mention of such valve in my tech manual for my 2006 f-53. Perhaps they are just thinking class-c.

RE: Park Power Low

Well, I have a theory that some may not like but, there was a 45' rv parked in this group of 4 supreme sites. The 45' behemoth left today and what do you know, no power issues at all. I suspect the 3 roof airs, washer, dryer, who knows what else dragged us all down. This is the second time that I was lucky enough to be parked next to a 45' rv and had power issues at this park. Soon as they left, everything is back fine and dandy. I was fortunate enough to have a pd50 surge system installed that protected me from under-voltage but the other folks probably didn't have a clue as to the damage they were incurring with the low voltage.

RE: Park Power Low

Sounds like your autoformer is not working. If 105 then autoformer should boost it to 115....should boost 10% Is CG guy measuring at pedestal w/o your rig plugged in OR inside rig at outlet with load on rig???105 is the boosted power. Just measured 105 outside 112 inside. It is just real low during the heat of the day.

Park Power Low

Staying at a place and I have the PD50 installed. It keeps shutting me down because I am at around 105 one one leg and 112 on the other. It is dipping below 103 or so which shuts everything down, rightly so. I complained to the campground and the man runs over an says 220, 110 each leg, you have good power. I even have a autoformer type gizmo installed. Never have any issues except for here. Just venting.

RE: safe-t-plus steering stabilizers

I recently had the Safety Plus Stabilizer installed on my Class A Bounder. I highly recommend that you have a experienced alignment shop that works with RVs install the stabilizer. It is a very precise adjustment to secure it to the steering rod. Also, you will need to have the front end aligned. Do it right the first time. To much work to do it by yourself. Not to expensive either.Nonsense. As long as your existing alignment is great, no need to have a shop put the stabilizer on. The ONLY issue I learned was that you need two people to do the final adjustment. You can't turn off the engine so you need someone to hold the wheel where you have set for straight while you loosen the gizmo and let it find center. Of course the other issue is making sure you have the correct torque wrenches to re-tighten all the bolts to proper specs.

RE: Hose and wire rub points

Absolutely noticed this same problem. My dash air went out because the coolant lines had holes rubbed into them. The repair place traced all my lines and put guards on them where they were touching other metal parts. This summer I went under the rig and located about 30 other spots where wire looms, hydraulic lines, main battery lines, were all rubbing on sharp metal edges with no protection. It only took me a few hours but I think I managed to find all potential problems areas and take care of them. I have no idea how many I missed. One that really ticked me off was a massive wire loom with probably 40 or 50 small wires in it. It was rubbing on a metal surface. If one or more of those wires had chaffed through, I don't know how I would have repaired it as there was no slack and it was a huge bundle above the drive shaft.

RE: Elk Neck State Park

What are you saying, just one loop closed or entire campground? The entire campground. They are making all hosts leave and shutting down the park from December 1 to April 1.Bummer. thanks.

RE: Onan 5500 EFI vs Carb.

Since my post I have found a couple of comments that perhaps the EFI requires a return fuel line to tank so if it isn't installed, I'm guessing that would mean tank drop too.

Onan 5500 EFI vs Carb.

Seems all I hear about is carb problems with the Onan's. Is the carb model standard vs EFI? Never seem to read about any issues regarding the EFI model. Is the EFI worth the extra money or just more to break? More fuel efficient?
