How do I replace a rocker arm switch?

I have a heater block switch that is mfg by pass and seymour cat # SCO 70R. It is a mobile home rocker arm switch . Has anyone replaced one or replaced with another type of switch. It is located in the ceiling of a cabinet and not much room for an electrical box therefore I probably need to use and exact replacement switch since it is self contained.

serpentine belt and hose replacements

When do you replace serpintine belt and radiator hoses on diesel engines? Last year I replaced all heater hoses & tank radiator hoses. Autos are generally 5 years.

Tree branches scratched Motorhome

Anyone know of a good product to remove tree branch scratches form my Motorhome. I have a full body painted MH. I can't feel the scratches so It I think they didn't do any paint damage.

RE: On going dead battery problem 2012 Ford Explorer.

I have checked the voltage and get 13V plus. I start the engine every 250-300 miles for 10-15 min.. I tow the Exporer 4 down & follow the correct shift pattern as listed above. The dash lights go off when in the accessory position. The RVi sensitivity is set on small suv. Still having a low battery problem!

On going dead battery problem 2012 Ford Explorer.

Has anyone solved a problem w/ Explorer battery going down when towing. I have added a wire charger from my motorhome 7 pin connection to the toad battery. I use the RVi Braking system and still have a battery discharge after 7-8 hr day of towing. I have the MFT navigation system w/ the radio and the HVAC system turned off when towing but still get a low battery at end of day.

RE: Proper Shifting to Reduce Engine Temperature

I've been down shifting for 14 years to lower temp. When you live in Colorado you learn to do that very quickly !

RE: Need dash A/C condenser!

Thanks Doug for the info Comfort Air has the CONDENSER for $428, quite a savings. Do you know where Newmar buys the A/C Line hoses? I have Newmar's hose part #'s. We have a local DASH AC supply shop build the new hoses. We take the old in and have them matched and made. Usually while you wait. IF you need the hoses from the REAR to the Front, then Freightliner and Spartan supply those 2 hoses. They are installed as part of the Chassis build. NOT easily replaced. Doug THX for the info Doug, I already had the rear to front water heater hoses replaced and they had to re-route them thru the storage compartment since the original were built into the chassis tube frame.

Need dash A/C condenser!

I need to replace the dash A/C condenser and Newmar has one but cost is $764.00. Does anyone know a cheaper part that might be available. I have seen some auto condenser's sell for as little as $125.00. I have Newmar's part #only.

RE: Tires

I replace tires every 5-6 years. Safety and not having a tire problem on the road is critical to me. I have seen blown out tires that have caused major damage to the fiberglass body of a Motorhome. Michelins 22" RV tire prices can vary considerably depending on where you live. I'm on my 3rd set of Mich's and next year will purchase our 4th.

RE: How long before buying a toad

Bought our 1st class A in 2000 was a 1996 Safari 31" gasser. Only used it for short trips because we were still working. Never had a toad always rented when we needed a car. Bought the 40" DS in 2004 and set up our 04 Odyssey and towed it from the start. Have now towed our 2 vehicles about 70000 miles & love having them w/ us. The only problem I'm having w/ the Explorer is my battery goes down each day and I have to recharge it daily. Can't figure out the problem since I do have a charge wire system installed on the Explorer. Best I can figure is the computer and the RVi break system must be eating a lot of juice during a 6-7 hr travel day.

Relocating to Arizona

My DW and I are moving our stick and brick home base to Sedona, AZ. Can anyone tell me if there is a good repair shop for Diesel Motorhomes in the general area. I will need general maintenance (oil changes,etc ) for the chassis and sometimes need coach repairs. I do know of repair shops in Phoenix area but not the Sedona area.

RE: Arizona pack rat problems?

I am more concerned w/ the engine wires being damaged for AZ area storage . I have stored my MH outdoors in Colorado for 16 yrs and never had any rodent problems inside or outside, but i'm looking for answers from people in AZ that are having success with their methods to keep from rodent invasion. Yes, eHoefler I am aware of rodent invasion "as with any other place".

Arizona pack rat problems?

We are moving to Arizona area and will be storing our Dutch Star outdoors (in Phoenix area sometimes and in Cottonwood area at times) and I'm wondering if there are any mice, pack rats, or other insects problems that can damage wiring, etc in storage yards and what you do to prevent the problems.
