RE: Changing V10 spark plugs...

I got one that's magnetic and attached to a 8-10" wobble extension. I think it came from Advance auto or Auto zone $12.

RE: Need advice on last minute trip to Night race at Bristol

Purchase or rent headsets. The noise will damage your ears. My favorite track. Just got asked last night if I wanted to go. But have other plans. JKaz

RE: AAA and tow vehicle and trailer

Coach net is the only one I found that will tow a utility trailer such as a boat or car trailer. I tow and open flat deck trailer with a race car and that's who I use. It's their premium package. $149/yr worth it for piece of mind. JKaz

RE: Help with floor rot removal, picture included

https://www.amazon.com/WEN-2312-Variable-Multifunction-Oscillating/dp/B005UKGKYK A occillating tool will work the best for Cutting near the edges. Had same problem in my MH. Styro is cheap. I would do it all and do it right. What's under the styro? I would take a look.

RE: Which adhesive caulk for solar panel mounts??

3M 4000UV it's a marine adhesive and caulk. It's made for bedding cleats and such on boats above and below water line. It's UV resistant and has a tensile strength of 500psi. They also make a 5200UV but that's overkill.

RE: Toilet base leak

Check to make sure it's not from the water source or the pedal. Don't tighten down to tight it's a rubber seal not a wax like house.

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.
