RE: Oregon Coast- From Medford

I live in Grants Pass and take 199 to the coast three or four times a year. I'm driving a 40' Allergo Bus and pulling a toad so my opinion has some relevancy. Most of the road is two lane with a few short sections of four lane and there are some passing lanes and turn-outs. The twisty sections are narrow and need to be taken slowly. When the road sign says 20MPH it means you! Just past Hiouchi there is a right turn onto 197 that saves about ten miles if you are heading north. Again take it slowly and you'll be fine. The Oregon coast between Brookings and Gold Beach is some of the most beautiful in the world, I never get tired of seeing it. If you can hit it at low tide you can walk out past huge mountainous rocks and enjoy exploring the tide pools. Bob

Anyone flat towing a Corvette?

I'm considering replacing my current towd, an '06 Miata, with a c5 vete. It would be a stick so I'm thinking that it could be towed but don't know if there is a base plate for it . . I'm looking at a real nice '01 valued about the same as my Miata. Bob

RE: Dash monitor only shows left turn camera '06 Allergo Bus

Latest update, switching camera inputs left to right to the camera controller makes no difference. The monitor only shows the view of the right camera. The Perimeter view camera controller made by Mito is discontinued. I did check and it is receiving left and right turn signals from the turn signal switch so I suspect the controller is bad? Bob

Dash monitor only shows left turn camera '06 Allergo Bus

No back-up or right camera display, it is stuck on left camera. I have the dash all apart but nothing obvious. Any assistance to get started would be appreciated. Bob

RE: Itasca 43 full wall slide comments?

I'm looking at a new one and am also concerned about the full wall slide and the structural integrity. I would really like to hear from an owner. Bob

Itasca 43 full wall slide comments?

We just looked at one and the living space is amazing! Would love to hear comments, good or bad. Would have to sell our 40" Allergo Bus to make it happen so I'm a little reluctant. Thanks, Bob

RE: 2004 Revolution with Delaminiation

Agree with above posts. I was quoted $1,000 a foot to repair and that was ten years ago. Bob

When your in a park that won't let you wash

What tricks do you use to keep it clean. I see some guys using a long handle mop device with a changeable pad and some chemical. I know not to do this when it's really dirty but how about just to keep it looking good? Any ideas out there? Bob

RE: Air pressure is gone, stuck in a Monaco Dynasty

Glad that you got it fixed. Don't drive longer than necessary with the dryer bypassed as the only limit on excessive air pressure buildup is the relief valve in the air tanks. You'll see 150psi or more on your gauges and hear a new banging sound as those relief valves work. The one way check valve is a $15 part and easily replaced. Anything more than that and you should look into a replacement dryer. Been there, done that! Bob

RE: Air pressure is gone, stuck in a Monaco Dynasty

Same thing happened to us on our 06 Allergo Bus. It was the dryer leaking continually. I was able to disconnect the inlet and outlet hoses and connect them together thus bypassing the dryer and drive it to get service. Bob

RE: Air systen cycles (blows off pressure) every three seconds

New update. It was the check valve! This is a small one inch rubber face metal disc that works with a spring to maintain pressure. It is located in the dryer just under the fitting for the large hose connection. I removed it and found damage to the rubber seal. Good news,! It is easy to change, cheap, and rewarding to fix. Thanks to the help on this topic. Bob

RE: 2008 Tiffin Phaeton 36 QSH: Any Issues?

I think the possible problems are the same on the Bus, check here. Bob http://www.tiffinrvnetwork.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=118&t=75686

RE: Air systen cycles (blows off pressure) every three seconds

An update. I spoke with a tech rep at Haldex and he thought that it was not the check valve but rather the unloader in the compressor. I went ahead and ordered the check valve as it was only $15 so we'll see what happens. I really don't want to have to remove the compressor, i can't even see it! Bob

RE: Air systen cycles (blows off pressure) every three seconds

Thanks guys! I knew someone would have good suggestions. Tomorrow I'll look at the check valve and get back with my findings. Bob

Air systen cycles (blows off pressure) every three seconds

My '06 Allergo Bus has a problem with the air system. Once it reaches pressure, about 115#s it blows off pressure every three to four seconds. So far we have replaced the governor on the air compressor and rebuild the Haldex air dryer. My mechanic wants to replace the dryer but it is a $500.00 part. This seems to be too big a gamble without assurances. Any ideas out there? Thanks in advance, Bob PS When I disconnect the small hose on the dryer from the governor, the cycling stops and the pressure rises to about 140
