RE: B+ motorhomes

been applying some basic mods often suggested on this b+ thread. http://i166.photobucket.com/albums/u110/burlmart/DINETTE%20BED_zps6xvcfkqq.jpg~original width=500 http://i166.photobucket.com/albums/u110/burlmart/DINETTE%20TABLE_zpszabzocm4_1.jpg width=500 http://i166.photobucket.com/albums/u110/burlmart/u%20dinette%20and%20sofa_zpstlkijwp1.jpg~original width=500 took out 24"x38" dinette table and replaced w/ 24"x20" and 24"x18" plywood. added thin foam layers (about 3) beneath 22"x38" dinette seat cushions and upholstered with easy-to-wipe-clean vinyl fabric. used about 7 layers of foam to create two cushions atop two pieces of plywood. used grommets on cushion backsides to allow air to escape when compressing. also covered sofa bottom in vinyl fabric. routed an extension cord and cable from front right glass-door cabinets to cabinet just above dinette where 19" tv now lays on a foam cushion. i need to be close to see tv, so now we just open cabinet, lift tv down to 24"x18" table top, and turn table to view from any seat in house. tv laying in cabinet http://i166.photobucket.com/albums/u110/burlmart/tv%20in%20bin_zpsazcnecfh.jpg~original width=500 tv on table http://i166.photobucket.com/albums/u110/burlmart/tv%20on%20table_zpsbpi85s1i.jpg~original width=300

RE: Class c vs. class a

thank you for this, phil...this is really going to change many things about how we start a new/different assessment of what our mini-motorhome is capable of. good stuff.

RE: Class c vs. class a

FWIW, we also sometimes leave the dog in the motorhome with the generator powering the roof air when shopping, eating, or rockhouding out in desert heat. do you ever use idling engine w/ dash AC?

RE: Class c vs. class a

thank you, phil. that is really good to know. we are hot and humid half the year, but dash cools whole rig easily. we use shore power at state parks where we go fall/winter/spring. we use genset maybe an hour a month in summer for AC for dogs while in a restaurant or store + 20-40 min/mo all year to keep it limber. if we have 200 hours on our genset over the last 10 years, i'd bet 80% of that was solely to keep it limber. i sure can see that we could do w/o a genset w/ a ford if it's legal to leave it running w/ dogs. (i gather the chevy is not as good idling?)

RE: Class c vs. class a

i did not know a ford V10 could easily idle for maybe 2 hours. i thought it was harmful. what is its fuel consumption running cab AC compared to tha onan 4000's 1/2 gal/hr running rooftop? a small B+/C will cool w/ just dash AC

RE: Batteries: Two-6V In Series, or Two-12V In Parallel ???

ron and all the posters on this good thread i may start a thread on some battery questions, but a flag just hit me on something ron said about completely disconnecting the batteries when his rig is stored in the attached garage. because i think i may have a current draw on my coach batt even with its disconnect is toggled to STORE. research shows there may (or may not) be safety monitors at work despite the 'disconnect.' CO2 and propane detectors are two i recall. if so, is total disconnect a potentially unsafe thing in an attached garage?

RE: ideas for dog walkable towns adjacent to RV c.g.

another good example of what i mean was grand marais, mn. i asked something similar on this forum several years back, and palacious, tx was suggested. it is a good many hours off, and when i have looked at its layout, the c.g. was not a safe pedestrian stroll to town. goliad has a paved walkway from c.g. to town. IIRC, it is the site of the cinquo de mayo battle.

ideas for dog walkable towns adjacent to RV c.g.

we mostly enjoy walking our three dogs when going RVing. we mainly hit nearby state parks because they are big enough to take long walks. would like to find some other nearby places that afford hour+ walks that maybe include shops and restaurants - one of us goes in while other and dogs wait outside - in a dog-walking friendly town where the RV park is somewhat integral (easy walking access) to the town. 2 of the 3 dogs are kinda unsettled in the moving RV, so closer proximity to baton rouge is desired (not much more than 4 hours away). for example, we go to fountainbleau s.p. which is connected to a nice walkable small town, mandeville, by 3 miles of converted rail-to-bikepath. the walk is too far to include strolling the town's streets. i am thinking of goliad, tx and new glarus, ws as good examples of where the RV park is close to points of interest in the walkable town. thanks for any ideas.

RE: class c 26ft no toad

when point of interest are in places like the center of st. augustine, asheville, gatlinburg, new orleans, etc. you will be looking at appreciable walks from where you park.

RE: B+ motorhomes

when checking on the steering pittman arm thing, i think our '05 chassis was built november '04. i am pretty sure it is '05 per memory and chevy manual.

RE: What class am I/

for the op and the poster whose sister bought the older carri-go, it appears to use very similar body skin parts with the phoenix cruiser 2350, which is still in production.

RE: B+ motorhomes

that is good info. so if it's allowed to cool, you might can carefully make another dozen miles? do you think there is a way to use the VIN to see if our rig has a different model fuel pump that corrects rhe earlier problem? with 3 dogs, a freeway or other breakdwn and overnite waits would be very difficult?
burlmart 04/26/15 06:24am Class C Motorhomes
RE: B+ motorhomes

how does the failure occur? i guess i mean what are the warning signs or any symptoms you noticed before failure?
burlmart 04/26/15 12:52am Class C Motorhomes
RE: B+ motorhomes

that happened at costco and we got it going at another station. no fuel pump fail yet on 2005 tl. is there a probable time frame for these to go out? or mileage? or model year? and maybe a better question: "is there an after market fix with a fuel pump that's mounted somewhere else?"

RE: Recurring engine bank 1 sensor 1 trouble code

new sensor is in. i erased codes, so we'll see...j-d said what i have gleaned from many websites "Bear in mind, it's "probably" the O2 sensor. Commonly replaced, consumable kind of part. Same idea as a spark plug. Still, other problems in a system "can" trigger a code so simply replacing the part bearing the code's name may not clear the problem." When we went to autozone, they only had Bosch. so for a 1st timer, i figured i'd just try it for $47. i also had realized i had no 7/8" wrench, and they were out of slit sockets, so i got what was there, a $10 12" long 7/8" wrench (open/box ends). turns out this was fortunate as the old sensor was frozen on even w/ WD40. the slit socket would not have worked - no room, so i agree w/ you guys that the offset O2 wrench is likely better. but FYI, the old and new end wire harnesses both pass through the box end of the 7/8" wrench. so with running the engine to heat the metals, more WD40, and that 12" leverage, i somehow got one lucky sharp rap that broke frozen O2 free to hand turn. fingers crossed and thanking you all once again for leading this novice wrench thru yet another fix-it adventure.

RE: Recurring engine bank 1 sensor 1 trouble code

thanks to this clue from turbojimmy, "I can clearly see all 4 sensors from underneath. I've had to change 2 of them, both post cat tho," i got back under to look more. i knew catastrophic converters were big, but all the internet drawings led me to believe the cats were within the exhaust manifold close to engine. well, once i spotted my 2 catalytics under the coach and found both #2 sensors there behind the canisters, i see that what i thought was HO2S bank 1 sensor 2 is actually sensor 1 - the upstream O2 sensor i probably need to change for DTC P0053. thanks guys...think i'll see how hard removing the harness is, and start off using WD40 to penetrate and a 7/8" wrench. TBC...

RE: Recurring engine bank 1 sensor 1 trouble code

i read that for chevy trucks, the bank 1 cylinders are uniquely on your right as you face engine from bumper - driver side. the 6.0L V8 is tight and you are reaching way down past valve cover near spark plug of cyl 1 and exhaust manifold. i cannot see it well, but there is a spark-plug-like thing with wires insulated in what martha tells me is a shiny foil-like insulation. this wire goes into a bigger sheathed cable of wires, which seems odd. i think this is HO2S in question - bank1,sensor1. but where is it's harness plug-in? from underneath, i can clearly see the bank1,sensor2 O2 sensor. its wires are sheathed in common black plastic insulation and go 12" to the harness connection. i may use the slot socket, but 1st i might need a chevy owner of a 2005 vintage to explain what i am seeing/feeling.
