RE: 1998 P30 Chevy 454 - Stalling at interstate speeds

You probably have a 4 barrel Holley carburetor. Our 96 Southwind is fuel injected. I agree with ScottG, I'd be looking at the fuel pump. And, I would postpone the trip until I got the situation corrected. Mr Murphy is out there waiting to enforce his law.

RE: Advice on building a gravel parking pad

I didn't build a pad but, I did cover a large area I use for parking my car/truck and RV with 2B gravel. I just scraped off the grass and about an inch of dirt before pouring the gravel. It varies from about 2-4 inches deep. It works great and drains well. I didn't use weed stop fabric. I get some weeds but, I just spray them with weed killer every few weeks. It's much easier than cutting grass. You'll like your pad.

RE: Harbor Freight/Honda smackdown....

If it makes you feel a little better, go to Northern tool, theyre selling what appears to be the same genny under their powerhorse name, in a blue cabinet for $1299 I checked the Northern Tool website. Except for the color, it's almost identical to the Predator.

RE: Do i need new tires

You're taking a 1500 mile trip on six year old (at least) tires that are cracked. I would replace the tires. It could make the trip less stressful. I also do not care for Michelin's. I like Hankook. But, I've heard good things about Sumitomo.

RE: Starting problems

Welcome to the forum. :) Make sure your battery terminals are clean and tight. Our 96 Southwind has similar symptoms if there is a little corrosion on the terminals. Always start with the simple, easy things when diagnosing a problem. And, let us know when you find the problem. Maybe you can help someone else with a similar problem.

RE: Can I tow this

It would be a unique toad. Probably not practical but unique and cool. :C

RE: smartphones sales : best second quarter on record

And a well placed EMP Burst will probably render them all useless. How will people survive if they can't take their own picture 20 times a day and post them online? :B

RE: Why did you decide to buy new instead of used trailer?

To buy new, you have a lot of trust in the mfg as well as your dealer to expedite warranty issues . That's the scary part of buying any new RV, not just a TT.

RE: This kinda thing can't help but keep fuel prices down.

I can see the USA doing something like this IF, battery technology improves. Solar has come a long way in the last few years. I don't see why batteries can't greatly improve. Unless Yellowstone erupts. Then those of us left will be Amish. :(

RE: Seasonal sites

Are the seasonal sites full of summer vacationers, or is it year round residents with tarps over their disheveled trailers, dogs running loose, and junk all over the place? You make that sound like it's a bad thing.. :B

RE: 1994 Lextra by Odessa 32'

Do I need to worry that Odessa is long out of business? I don't think anything is "Odessa Specific" if that makes sense. My cousin did mention that it has an Onan generator and the last time he ran it it shut off for no apparent reason and would only run if he held the start button down. Seems minor and maybe an ignition switch. Don't worry about Odessa being out of business. Your RV will be considered an 'orphan', body parts will not be available except from a RV Salvage Yard. The mechanical parts, as previously mentioned, are available. For the Onan, change the air and fuel filter and make sure the oil level is correct. It may have a low oil safety switch. Also, on most RV's the generator is fed from the chassis gas tank. The tank must be at least 1/4 full for the generator operate. That's probably not the problem if it will start but not keep running. However, you want to make sure everything is correct before you start to diagnose the problem.

RE: 1994 Lextra by Odessa 32'

Welcome to the forum. It sounds like you have the mechanical portion of the RV under control. I think the 360 is a solid engine and will be reliable but, maybe a little thirsty. RV's are not economy cars. I don't know anything about the Odessa. Most RV's are basically the same. The big thing is check for leaks. If it has a rubber roof it will probably need caulked and possibly coated. Not a difficult job. A small leak can cause a lot of damage if it is not stopped/repaird quickly. Tires are a big concern on RV's. They usually age out before they wear out. If it's been sitting for years it may need new tires. Many replace their tires at 6-10 years. You can google the appliances and find manuals for most models. Don't hesitate to ask questions on the forum. Someone will have an answer. Keep us updated on your purchase. You daughters will love RV traveling. :C

RE: Air Conditioner

Can you build it up with composite lumber or something similar?

RE: Full black water tank

For a one time thing it would be okay. I'm guessing you have a valve problem and can't dump your tank the normal way? I wouldn't want to do it on a regular basis.

RE: Right on yard art

Why not just boondock at a Walmart, or other big box store? Park out of the way but, under a light if you need a bright, well lit area for camping.

RE: Found a small TT,,

Anyway, 5 gals is way too small for even a weekend trip. I think you'd be sorry if you got this unit and it might be a hard one to resell to anyone that wasn't new to RVs. Shop around...there are better options for you. X2.
