RE: Where to get a spare tire rim for new Ford F53 19.5"

Got mine at the Ford dealer. It was expensive.

RE: GPS - Garmin 760LMT Experiences

I've had them both, 760lmt and dezl. I like them to tell me when I will be where I want to go. I wouldn't trust either of them to tell me how to get there. Both models have given me terrible routing. I keep my Dezl in auto mode now. Know and review your route ahead of time and us the GPS as another tool.

RE: Installing Baseplate With Thread Lock?

Op, did you just finish, put it all back together, and then read the part about making sure you use locktite?

RE: Which is the best converter to buy?

I two rather huge deep cycle wet type batteries. They are about 20 feet from the converter location. The existing converter looks like a parallax 30 amp unit. I never charge using my generator. I'm either driving or plugged in. No boondocking.

RE: Which is the best converter to buy?

I see several amp models. How do I know which to buy?

RE: bearing service

Everyone is assuming trailer. Just did my 60K bearing grease on my F-53. Took me 2 hours per side, with the tools handy.

RE: Coach Leans to Driver's Side

My truck shop used spacer blocks to get mine nice and level. I couldn't be happier.

RE: Trav'ler Problem

I often rub folks the wrong way. It's why I left the forums awhile back and it took some time to come back. I guess I haven't changed much and will have to live with it or leave again and be done with it. Thanks for the comment, however.Your advice outweighs any rough and rowdy attitudes you may have. If they don't like it, TS.

RE: Reduction in Fleetwood's work force

Culling of the malcontents, trouble makers, and those who are not flexible. If they were really needed in the past new employees will be hired to replace them. One here one there until they are back up to staffing needs. Or it could be they want to hire people for eight dollars an hour.... JimYes, the great american business model, pay them peanuts and no benefits.

RE: No rest stops for RVs or Busses

Northbound 81 in VA is kind of funny. I have seen RV's in the car only one and I don't hesitate to use truck only ones when I need them. Then, they have a couple old ratty rest areas with no good truck parking close to each other but the next one is several hours after that. Southbound 81 is ok.

RE: Onan 5.5HGJAB-1038C

OK, thanks for the replies. I will check it out further as soon as I can and report back here on my findings. It could be a couple days though. The pump seems to be working OK. Sounds like it always has. I did test it a while back and it pumped fuel pretty good. I don't have a way to pressure test it though. It is the standard Onan pump that goes on the generator. I will get the part number off of it. I saw it earlier today, but I can't remember the number. If it is running lean, how do I adjust that? It has the altitude adjustment on it and it is almost down to 0. I am only about 800 feet above sea level.I had to replace the choke pull off on mine. It ran but ran terrible. The only way I found it out was taking off the filter and such and watching the carb.

pirate, if you use the on line form. thats different from a call about how to service your system. someone will call you back, most of the time, the same day. they will quote the price, and the shipping cost at that time. the reason they have to call you back is that they do not store credit card numbers. there are a lot of federal regulations that apply, ans a lot of cost, when you do that. it takes a lot of experience to help someone over the phone. it also takes a lot of time, depending on the callers own expertise. calls can take 5 minutes, or sometimes an hour or longer. we dont cut a caller off, because he doesnt know what he needs. there is never a charge for this diagnostic service either, even though we have 15 to twenty people answering the phone for all types of calls, from engineering, to just how to check the fluid level. in a pinch, call me at 602-549-3638. i work for hwh also. i can help ,and am available on weekends, and evenings.Ok, thanks. My wife is in a wheelchair and being able to operate the slide is one of my freak-out type worries.

RE: Onan 5.5HGJAB-1038C

Pump? That would be my guess. Putting the line in the gas can next to it still used the same pump. All that rules out is crack or air penetration into the fuel line from the tank.

Yah, great idea, hire some contract hands who know their job is limited in duration to work on some pretty complex systems. Not on my coach ! I'd rather work to the HWH schedule, and enjoy the class of service they are known for. Thanks.Making someone wait a week for a return call when they could be stuck in a campground is NOT the type of class of service they should be known for.

RE: Huge Thanks to Barker Manufacturing - Blue Tote

They are a nice product. I have a 32 gal I have never used I just happen to be getting rid of.

HWH in Moscow IA is very slow in the winter but the other months they are snowed under. We went there for service and it was packed. If they hire more people they would have to let them go in the winter. I found the same thing when we were in the NW and needed service. Every place we called for a new AC said it would take 2 weeks to even look at it. That's one of the big problems of such a seasonal business in most areas of our country. Feast or famine, I don't envy those who are forced to make what are supposed to be intelligent business decisions with that sort of built in problem that they can't do anything about. I found this to be true also in the winter they called me back within 1 day when my jacks would not retract and were helpful During the summer they said they would call back within a week but did not hear from them until 3 or 4 weeks later. I already ordered and replaced the needed control board. They could always hire contract workers for the busy season then let them go when things get slow without having to lay off direct employees.Agree. They should hire on some extras to keep the response time down to a day or two, max.
