RE: Braking Conundrum

My CDL has a bake adjustment endorsement. BUT: It is not recommended that anyone without a HD mechanic's license adjust air brakes. If they are out of adjustment there is something wrong with the system. But one can check the stroke length. Near impossible on the rear axle of a MH. Even the fronts on many are hard to do due to ground clearance. I would bet that some of the posters do not know how to do a "6 pack" brake adjustment ( does not apply to disc brakes). Moisheh

RE: ULSD in Baja

You have brought up a subject that is sure to start a riot. There is no real answer to your question. Some posters claim that part of Baja uses US ULSD fuel. Could be correct. As for any rollout of ULSD. Nothing has changed since last year. Moisheh

RE: Cat water pump bearing

Normally I would bow to Wolfe's professional knowledge. But the Cat C7 in a rear engine MH does have some problems that C7's do not have in other applications. That bearing is one of them. I am convinced that it is due to a heat retention in that area. I have read Fire Fighter forums and do not ever remember seeing that problem with the C7. Some RV owners have even posted the part #'s for changing over to a greasable bearing. I have also noticed that it is rare to see someone posting about the bearing disintegrating in a Pre C7 Cat ( greasable). When we had a MH with a C7 I carried a spare bearing! Never had to use it as we sold that unit within 12 months. Moisheh

RE: December's Pemex fuel prices

navigator: Very interesting. Sometimes after finding one brand to be bad you may find that the problem is local. In some areas there is only one refinery and all brands use the same fuel. The additive package is different. Where I live in Canada the small engine repair shops all say: NEVER USE SHELL. But maybe we are imagining this as Tepetapan says that fuels are made to some international standard !!!!!!!!!! " Pure Nonsense"!!!! Moisheh

RE: Cat water pump bearing

NEVER replace that bearing with a sealed bearing. Contrary to some posts the C7 has a sealed bearing and a short life. Probably due to all the heat in that area. If that bearing lets go you will have a huge repair bill! Moisheh

RE: December's Pemex fuel prices

Tepetapan: Are you calling me a liar??? One day I was in HMO and stopped for fuel. A PU truck beside me had a flat deck trailer with plywood sides. About 24 feet long. It was full of converters. I asked the driver what that was all about. Some of them appeared to be brand new. He explained about the value of these babies. Precious metals including:palladium, and rhodium are in the converters. When scrap metal prices were at all time highs some converters could bring $300 or more. Today's commodity prices are lower. There were ads in El Imparcial that offered a while you wait removal service. When prices were high you got the equivalent of $75 to $150 for the large units. Even in Canada thieves were using battery powered pipe cutters to cut off the converters on car lots! Magna is manufactured to a Mexican standard that has a higher Sulfur content than in the USA. You will not see the UBA sign on Magna pumps. Only Premium. According to Mex and others Premium is all manufactured in the US. As usual your so called facts are flawed. https://yucalandia.com/driving-in-mexico-issues-fun/pemex-gasoline-issues-the-article/ http://automotivemexico.com/?p=3198 Moisheh

RE: Braking Conundrum

Bill: Yes that is scary. Unfortunately the US does not have a cross state driver training program or any standards for one. It was part of a bill in Congress in the 80's but never passed. I took a 240 hour course: 80 hours classroom. After that we learned with a partner. The trucks had the sleeper removed and they installed an extra seat. I drove 60 hours and observed my partner for another 60 hours. We drove city and highway. Did alley docking and maneuvers. We also did 20 hours of pre trip and air brake. Also observed my partner doing the same. It was intensive and I hadn't studied this much since College. There is talk of the US implementing a similar program. Some trucking companies have a finishing program where you work with a trainer for 90 days. Moisheh

RE: Braking Conundrum

Mile High:I know what you mean but driving in the left lane is an invitation to an accident. If you are on an Interstate with a 75 mph limit and drive under 70 the other drivers get frustrated. If you move over a lane change may result in an accident. If you stay in the outside lane the 4 wheelers get excited and frustrated. That leads to more accidents. Slower vehicles should always stay to the right. Tropical: There are a lot of bad semi drivers. But 80 % being bad is a an exaggeration. I would say that 75% are good and 25% horrible! As the older guys retire it does get worse. You can get a CDL with less than 40 hours training. What a joke! Moisheh

Anything you buy at CW is probably an auction vehicle. Try elsewhere. The service is usually horrible. Salesman are fast talkers. Moisheh

RE: Health Insurance - Caution

Actually your Dr. erred. You need a lawyer and a Dr. to answer the questions on some policies. CBC did a story on Manulife and both the Dr. and the lawyer stated they could not guarantee the answers were correct. Manulife has designed their questionnaire so you will make a mistake! Moisheh

RE: December's Pemex fuel prices

Russ: Did you know that there are shops in HMO that remove your Catalytic Converter and install a pipe. You get a few bucks for the converter. Mexicans with brand new cars do this. I think they pay about $100 !! Luckily there are no smog checks. Moisheh

RE: December's Pemex fuel prices

Your mention of Magna being low quality is interesting. For years I used only Magana in my vehicles. I read of expats having problems with their Catalytic Convertors and shrugged it off as nonsense. I WAS WRONG ! My wife's Rav 4 has a partially plugged convertor. She now uses Premium. magna is mostly produced in Mexico according to the forum experts. It is NOT a low sulfur fuel. Premium is produced in the USA according to those same experts. It is a low sulfur fuel and Pemex even puts that on the pumps or the signage. The Rav 4 convertor is around $300. If you have a gas motorhome with dual exhaust I bet the convertors are more like $400 each. Only 83 centavos price difference. Less than a nickel a Litre. Moisheh

RE: Braking Conundrum

The area in front of you is your "Safe Zone. I always watch the traffic and the brake light on vehicles in front. I have a CDL and drive long haul in the summer. If you think a Class A MH has a greater stopping distance than a car a Class 8 truck and trailer @ 80,000 lbs. is even worse. The guys in a 40+ ft. MH that are constantly changing lanes and passing everything in site are the ones who should have to take a driver's test. Sometimes on a nice freeway I will jump up to 70 MPH. Usually I stay @ 65. Some units pass me and must be doing 80 MPH. Very Bad. Moisheh

RE: Braking Conundrum

Did I misspell cantankerous? If this thread is closed we will all know why. Does anyone really think that a mod would close a thread to a select group of forum members? I think the Canadian posters were simply reminding a newbie that having a little knowledge of a brake system that is unlike the one on his car is a good idea. The OP has received some solid advice.

RE: Braking Conundrum

Many of us are getting older. For men that sometimes equates with being cantankerous. Maybe that is Bill's problem. He is an expert on satellite systems and I bet he has mechanical knowledge. Don't understand why he makes those posts. Moisheh

RE: Disconnect alarms for tow bar arms

Right on mowermech! I would bet that more than 50% of tow bar disconnect incidents are operator error. Maybe on a Blue Ox the operator missed the hole for the pin. Maybe the latching pin was not closed. Locking pins eliminate that problem but if there is a fire and you have to disconnect quickly that becomes a problem. Once I insert my latch pins I grab the tow bar and give it a hard wiggle on each side. When I am all hooked up and ready to go I check every wiring connection and put my hand on all connect parts of the tow bar and give it a shake. If stopped at a shopping center I check the pins before we leave. If the toad is connected overnight we check the lights and all tow bar connections in the morning. Never take anything for granted.

RE: Broken trailer spring

Unfortunately most of the trailer mfrs. buy the axle and springs as a package. Or someone like Lippert manufactures the frame and suspension. In either case the springs are usually made in China. Poor quality steel. Trequila: Both Edmonton and Calgary have spring manufacturers. High quality ! Standens is one of the best. Moisheh
