RE: No road side assistance! Tire Blow out on Interstate!

I switched to coach net for that reason. I needed trailer coverage also and GS doesn't provide it.

RE: Above 100,000 miles: Ford/Chevy/Dodge vans?

Having maintained fleet one ton vans. I prefer fords over the Chevy. Both had pretty much bullet proof drive trains. Both needed front end overhauls, ball joints , tierods etc at 125-150k miles. Biggest problem with Chevy was the cargo doors. Hinges would seize up and stick and sometime break off. Also the gas petal would need replacing at 200k or so. Its a drive by wire and the gas petal would stop working a $300 replacement part. As for ford lower rad hose will need replacing at 100k+. Tie rod nicks it as you turn wheel, after 100k of nicks it wears. $100 part I would cut piece off old and zip tie on new to cushen it. In 2008 ford started putting on plastic shields. Sway bar bushing $60 after 2008 they change style of sway bar so no bushing wear. 2003 and earlier coils for the plugs would fail. If buying those years see if they have been replaced. 8x $30 We would get 500,000-600,000 miles out of the fords. Oil changes every 8-10k miles. I NEVER serviced the transmissions and never a failure. Good E350 are hard to find around here. Just spent 2+ months looking for one for a new business. Finally found a 2011 extended with 125k on it for $11000. Ford discontinued them in 2015 and good ones bring a premium $$. Good luck with your search. JKaz

RE: Floor Replacement in Storage Area

Find and fix leak first. When I did mine I had two layers of plywood sandwiching carpet. When carpet got wet it all rotted. When they built it they started with a flat deck carpeted it then added walls etc. A vibrating cutting tool will be the best tool. Because it can make precision cuts next to walls and such. Cut and pull decking material look for any rotted supports. It's basic construction cut out bad and replace and reinforce if nesisary. My supports were both steel and wood. I replace what wood was bad. And then redecked it. JKaz

RE: Urethane Adheisive Caulk

3m 4000 UV. It's an adhesive and sealant that is not affected by UV. It's designed for the marine industry for bedding cleats and such as well as a sealant.

RE: I keep throwing a fan belt

You stated a build up of melted rubber on the air pump pully. Sounds like the air pump is seizing up when it gets hot. Try bypassing it with a shorter belt.

RE: Origin of power stroke engine

The D and DX blocks were made by Oldsmobile. They are same size and dimension as an Olds gas small block. They definitly had there issues as a diesel. But convert them to gas with Olds gas block parts ( heads intake etc) they will run well. They D and DX blocks are very popular with the high performance Oldsmobile crowd because the blocks are very strong. Can easily handel 1200+ HP.

RE: Thinking about going from m MH to TT who makes quality units

Wow people thanks for the replies. Keep them coming. I now have some ideas and direction. My E-150 is set up with tow package, air bags,10,000# hitch,WDH,bilsteins all around and a brake controller. I have used it for years to tow a car trailer. I know I'm limited to max 26'-28'. Just don't know if many of the NW manufacturers units will make it to the east coast. A quick Craigslist search didn't turn up much. But shopping for the unit is half the fun right? Lol Thanks again JKaz

Thinking about going from m MH to TT who makes quality units

DW and I are looking at selling our MH and getting a TT. Would have to be max in the 6000-7000 lbs range do to the fact we have a Ford E150 already set up for towing. My question is what manufacturers have the best quality? We would be looking at used. Do any have one piece front and rear caps? Instead of plastic angle holding corners together. Anyone with fiberglass or aluminum roofs? Or are they all rubber. Its just the wife and I does anyone have kingsize bed? I know layouts important but I'm trying to get a direction as to which brands I should steer towards. Any brands to steer away from? And why? Were not in any hurry just want to find the right TT. Thanks JKaz

RE: RV Caulk Reccomendations

I used the 3m 4000 for every side seam, marker light, trim and door on the outside of my MH. I like the fact its a caulk and an adhesive all in one. Most import is its UV protection. Been 4+ years and still holding up great. Its was designed for marine use bedding cleats and such. I used eternabond on my roof seems. No brainer do it once and be done with it. I also used eternabond double sided for my windows. Removed each window cleaned and applied eternabond double sided. Same 4+ years and no leaks. I only wanted to do these fixes once. Couldn't understand using something that has to be redone or touched up every few years. Good luck with tour project.
