RE: Workhorse Opinions

I have seen a few posts that the 8.1 burned oil. Have others had this problem? My V10 did not have this problem. At close to 90,000 I do not have to add any oil between 5,000 mile oil changes. This is with mostly western mountain driving and towing an HHR.

RE: RV Photography

Judging from the amount of units in the photos, I'd guess that sales have not been too great. :B

RE: Workhorse Opinions

Workhorse W22 chassis did not come with Swaybars. Those big square tubes mounted from leaf spring to leaf spring, Workhorse calls those Stabilizers or a Torsion Tube. Because the WW chassis uses such a long leaf spring to try to give it a smoother ride they chose to add these square stabilizer bars to help with sway that the spring get as they deflect. The sway is more from the springs rocking from side to side. This square tube mounted to each leaf spring was designed to help keep those springs parallel and also attempts to help with sway. Here is what a authorized Workhorse service dealer said about the sway system under the Workhorse W22 chassis. "Workhorse did not use a traditional sway bar system. There are 2 stabilizer devices on your chassis and they both look like elongated square bars. These bars are either 2.0 inch on the front or both 2.5" square, depending on the year. The front bar is mounted in between the springs and you can see it mounted below the radiator. The rear bar is mounted behind the differential at the trailing end of the leaf springs. These bars work as torque arms where the side that gets loaded in deflection applies an equal force through the bar in opposition to the force absorbed. What the bar attempts to do is center the roll rate as best as possible and to keep the axle side to side deflection as minimal as possible. Seems to me that the Workhorse service dealer you posted called them BARS 6 or 7 times, but that is irrelevant. Since you seem to be in the minority with handling problems with your W chassis perhaps the first thing you should do is have a FOUR wheel alignment done with the thrust angle being checked to make sure that rear axle is in perfect alignment with the center of your coach. There are very few shops that have the equipment to do this but it is worth finding one. I know of ZERO RV shops that have the equipment but many truck alignment shops have the facilities. Then make sure that the front end is aligned with the coach properly loaded for travel and your tires properly inflated. The WH chassis will handle better if the front axle is loaded close to the maximum. If the front axle is light, the coach will sway and wag. Before you continue to throw money at the chassis, you should take it to a well equipped shop that will check the basic things first before you start adding every aftermarket accessory out there. Go on to IRV2.com and look under the Workhorse section. You will find more then just me who have not been satisfied with the stock ride of the W22 chassis. While doing research on my ride quality I found that site and found that what I was feeling was not not just me. Trust me when I say I did my research before just throwing money at something. The last place I want to spend money is on my RV. The first fix I did was to install the better valving Bilstein shocks and get it aligned. What we found out was my coach was on the low end of the factory settings in regards to caster. I don't remember what degree shim was added, but is was a few degree's of caster, and that in itself made a big improvement. It was this improvement that had me not do anymore to the front end. I admit I would like to add a front swaybar system, but that is pretty far down on my list of daily life needs or wants. A company called Brazel's RV in Washington is big into the Workhorse chassis stuff. I spoke to them on several occasions and they are the ones who suggested I start with a rear track bar (which was not bought though them) Then later it was my choice to add the rear Hellwig swaybar. This also made a big improvement. I still think the ride quality of my sisters Ford chassis is a bit nicer, but I'm much closer to what their ride quality is vs. before I did my improvements. BTW I have a Fleetwood Southwind 32. And I will agree different models & brands will ride a little different on the same chassis. I'm familiar with Jon at Brazels. He prepared my ultrachip but I did not feel anything was needed on my suspension other than switching from the standard Bilstein shocks to Koni FSD's. Did they check the thrust angle of the rear axle and was your coach loaded completely when the front end alignment was done? Is your front end loaded close to max axle weight? Tire pressures at 100 PSI.

RE: RV Photography

I am a RV Salesmen but, I have passion for photography. Thought this would be a place where it would be accepted. Sorry if it was taken offense to. Not my intention, which is why there is no information of my dealership on here :) Since it appears that you don't own an RV you would do better posting on a photography forum. :R

RE: Is a motorhome "Only For The RIch"?

Travel in an RV, or by plane, boat, or train, costs money.

RE: What year MH models are too old to consider buying?

The biggest problem with older motor homes are the rubber items. Rubber bushings can harden and fall apart. Rubber belts and hoses can crack and fail. Rubber seals on shocks, brakes, and wheel bearings, along with engine components can harden and start to leak. Basically the older the coach the more often minor/major things will fail and need to be replaced. Just because a coach looks great on the inside does not mean that the mechanical components are in good shape. I have restored a lot of different vehicles and the worst ones to deal with were the low mileage vehicles that sat unused for long periods of time. I would much rather have a higher mileage unit that was used regularly and properly maintained.

RE: Workhorse Opinions

The Chevy 8.1 is a great engine with plenty of power. The Allison transmission is an awesome transmission. I cant compare the Allision to the new Ford trans, but comparing the Allison to the Ford trans they were using back in the era your looking at, is no comparison and the Allison kills it! You don't hear about people having issues with the Allison Trans. Now IMO the Workhorse suspension sucks! They have a joke of a sway bar system. In order to make my my 04 Workhorse chassis ride as nice as my family members 02 Ford chassis I had to add aftermarket Bilsteins, rear track bar & real rear sway bar. I have been told adding a front track bar & or Sway bar is a big improvement. So IMO to make the Workhorse ride as nice as the Ford I had to add $1,000 worth of suspension upgrades, and that is not doing the front suspension. Actually the Workhorse chassis has very beefy front and rear anti-sway bars that, unlike the Ford chassis, do not use rubber bushings. They are directly bolted to the suspension and remains consistent because there are no bushings to wear out. I have 80,000 miles on mine with no trac bar and plenty of mountain roads and travel in the Great Plains with the high winds. I have Koni FSD shocks on my WH coach.

RE: F53 Brake Advice

If you know the rear axle type, just call a few truck salvage yards. You also might check with a truck shop in your area that deals with medium duty trucks.

RE: Can a generator be moved in a gas MH?

As above, anything is possible with enough money. All you have to do is remove a basement compartment, build a steel frame, extend the electrical power and fuel lines to the new location, and hope for the best. My coach has the generator in the middle of the coach so I am sure that if you look long enough you can probably find one with the generator in a different location. Of course this does not guaranty that it will still be quiet even if it is moved 15 feet away. Perhaps you would spend less money modifying the generator and generator compartment to quiet the unit to an acceptable level. After all, gasoline automobile engines can hardly be heard when they are running.

RE: ?'s about AC, Electric in BR and and thank you!

Some coaches have more than one GFI outlet so you may have one that is tripped that feeds the bedroom. Sometimes these GFI's are well hidden. They may be in the basement or on the side of a bath cabinet or even the side of a bedroom cabinet. Also look at your inverter and see if ONE of the circuit breakers has tripped. My inverter has two outputs and I can lose power on some of my outlets but not all of them if one trips. These circuit breakers are located right on the inverter itself and are before your circuit breakers in your main electrical panel. The AC problem might be a bearing that is starting to fail in the fan.

RE: F53 Brake Advice

When I just completed a brake job on my Chevy HHR toad, I found that there are after market springs available that help to prevent brake drag. These are small, cheap(under $10) springs that fit on to your brake pads and provide some force to retract the pads away from the rotor when not needed. WE just got back from a trip where I put almost 1000 miles on the toad in the mountains. I did not notice any decrease in my braking but I did notice that I no longer have a lingering dragging noise after I release the brakes. I do not know if these are available for all vehicles with disc brakes but for the cost, if I can find them, I will install them on every vehicle that I own, including the MH. They are known as "Brake Pad drag reduction clips".

RE: Seat Belts

We always use our seat belts in every vehicle that we own. That said, my DW is an adult, and depending on road conditions, she will make a decision to unbuckle and use the rest room or grab something to eat or drink while I continue down the highway. After over 50 years of marriage, and riding with me in the various vehicles and airplanes that I have owned, she feels confident enough in my ability to not do anything stupid. Naturally we cannot always avoid the other guy but she also will not unbuckle if there is a lot of traffic in the vicinity. The only time we have had passengers in our coach is for very short local trips and we have seat belts for all to use.

RE: "Show stopper" road probems

IN many years of RV travel we have only had one problem that stopped us and caused a week long delay. As it turned out, this happened to be right outside of Dutch John, UT. We had passed through the little town when we broke down. There is ONE small garage in Dutch John and CoachNet sent the mechanic out to us in about 20 minutes. He was able to do a temporary repair that got us back to the RV Park in Dutch John, right next to his garage. He determined what the problem was and we ordered the parts. We ended up spending a week in a fantastic area of Utah that we would have driven right past. This incident changed our "schedule" but it did not hurt our trip. As it turned out, had it not been for the problem we would have missed a great destination. He completed the repairs, gave us a bill that was way less than I expected, and we continued on our way with a note on our map to return to Dutch John the next time we are in the area. One of the advantages of having an RV and a toad is that a problem does not mean that your trip has to come to a halt. There are usually alternatives that will allow you to just switch gears and enjoy the circumstances that you are in.

RE: Possible A/C noise solution

That may work but it also may backfire on them. Just because the fans are mechanically interchangeable does not mean that they all move the same amount of air.

RE: spin balancing vs bg balancing

Just make sure that you are not confusing RV specific beads with other beads or with Equal powder. The powder will cause vibration if they clump, which is very common. Beads should not need to be vacuumed out since they will just roll out if the tire is tipped. In fact the beads can be reused in another tire if you want to be cost conscious. I read on here about people confusing the different products all of the time. Even in this post some talk about the beads needing a different valve core. If you use the correct RV SPECIFIC product, which most truck type tire dealers do NOT stock, you do not need to change the valve core and you do not have to worry about vibration unless the tire is out of round to begin with. You also have to make sure that you use the correct size bag to throw in to the tire when it is mounted. I ordered my own DynaBeads and just gave them to the installer when the tires were mounted.

RE: F53 Brake Advice

The Ford brake fluid is great and has one of the highest boiling points. It should take close to three quarts to completely flush out the entire system. Be sure to get disc brake high heat lubricant and apply it to all rubbing points on the pads, calipers, and front of the pistons that push against the pads.

RE: spin balancing vs bg balancing

If you go with the RV specific DynaBeads, they are a little larger and DO NOT require any special valve stem and are compatible with any TPMS. The DynaBeads also continuously balance your tires as you drive, even when the rubber is wearing down or if your rims pick up a little mud. The DynaBeads come in bags that are easily installed, unaffected by moisture, and even make it possible for you to balance your unmounted spare tire when it is installed in an emergency. I do not like the balancing powder because it is too susceptible to clumping if there is any moisture present. The Beads eliminate this problem.

RE: RV crash N of Knoxville on I-75

Any accident in an RV is sad news for all involved. Hopefully we can all learn something and remember that things can go horribly wrong in an instant. Live every day like it may be your last because you just never know when your time on this earth will end.
