RE: Power steering filter

According to Spartan: Hydraulic System In Tank Filter: Filter part #87610A Nelson Hydraulic Fluid: All Production Models - AW 32 or AW 46 hydraulic oil Service Interval: Spin-On Synthetic Filter: Every 12,000 miles or yearly In Tank Filter: Every 2 years or 24,000 miles Note: If your chassis does not have the spin on filter, you must change the filter and fluid every 12,000 miles or yearly. I have found the fluid stays pretty clean so I can't imagine it getting plugged, but I would definitely change it on a regular basis. It's pretty easy to do. Lou 05 Travel Supreme Envoy

RE: Power steering filter

05 Spartan Mountain Master chassis and mine is in the canister too. Any questions about the filter P/N or location just call Spartan with your VIN, they are always helpful. Lou 05 Travel Supreme Envoy

RE: toll roads

We typically travel the most direct route that often puts us on toll roads. We did get an EZ-Pass that works most places in the northeast to minimize the hassle and it's even better where the states set up high speed lanes so you don't even need to slow down. Lou 05 Travel Supreme Envoy

RE: Brake Buddy Brake away switch

nor am I soliciting a "defending it in court" discussion, so please let's not start one. Why? Are you independently wealthy? Not everyone is fortunate enough to be able to afford a large judgment against them. WHY, because that discussion was not the OP's question. Also, I'm speaking about a 32K lb MOHO towing a 3K lb car, not a car/truck towing a heavier TT or 5er. Totally different situation. Lou 05 Travel Supreme Envoy

RE: Brake Buddy Brake away switch

I currently do not use it because I envision the switch malfunctioning and locking up the brakes on the toad at 65+ mph. I'm not sure the towbar and/or the attaching hardware could handle that. However, my safety chains are way oversized and are attached directly to the frame of the MOHO and the frame of the car. The chains would still be attached if both the MOHO hitch and toad bracket were completely disconnected from both vehicles. I'm simply answering the OP's question and not telling anyone what to do, nor am I soliciting a "defending it in court" discussion, so please let's not start one. Lou 05 Travel Supreme Envoy

RE: Calling all Country Coach experts price check

Sorry to hear that, but there are plenty of rigs out there so something will come up. Good luck. Lou 095 Travel Supreme Envoy

RE: Norcold refrigerator

Did you have the Norcold recall installed? If so, check to see if the red light is on the recall box. If illuminated either (1) there was a problem and the box did it's thing or (2) it inadvertently tripped. I have read many times where the circuitry has gotten wet and the box trip. It can be reset with a magnet and a search will provide additional info, but ensure there wasn't a real problem with the fridge first. Lou 05 Travel Supreme Envoy

RE: f-53 fuel pump pressure

You can find the fuel pressure for most engines here: http://www.jameshalderman.com/links/book_adv_eng_perf_5/s_and_c/Fuel_Pressure_Specifications.pdf Also, a bad regulator could result in low pressure too so don't just replace the pump until you are sure that's the problem. Good luck. Lou 05 Travel Supreme Envoy

RE: Calling all Country Coach experts price check

Don't rule out too many slides. As long as you have access throughout the coach with them in, it's a great feature when you are parked. We currently have four and will never go back. Lou 05 Travel Supreme Envoy

RE: Calling all Country Coach experts price check

Also, I agree with Sully about slides. The more the better, but get at least one in the living room. Lou 05 Travel Supreme Envoy

RE: Calling all Country Coach experts price check

Congrats on selling the Pace Arrow. I can relate to not wanting to have two RV's at one time. After we purchased our current rig in 09, I listed our Winne Vectra on Craigslist and it sold in about a week. We were able to get it out of the yard before we picked up the new one. The bottom line is if price right anything will move. Hopefully the one in LI will work out. Lou 05 Travel Supreme Envoy

RE: Rear slide wont move??

Before you replace the controller try swapping it out with one from another slide. This way you will be sure it is a controller problem and not just a loose connection somewhere. Lou 05 Travel Supreme Envoy

RE: Chocks for MH

Unlike your service brakes, that take air pressure to apply the brakes, the parking brake chambers are spring loaded such that it takes air pressure to release the braking action on the rear wheels. Therefore, a loss of air pressure will ensure the parking brake is applied. If you search "air brakes" you will find plenty of info with diagrams explaining how the entire system operates. This general info should understood by all drivers. Certainly chocking the wheels will not hurt and is prudent if the site is not level. Lou 05 Travel Supreme Envoy

RE: Country Coach solid front axel

All air bag suspensions on solid axles already have a Panhard rod. Think of air bags as a marshmallow-- they have zero side to side movement control. They only support weight. So they HAVE to be located fore and aft and side to side. Once again, right on the money with an excellent analogy. Lou 05 Travel Supreme Envoy

RE: construction materials

"What other Mfg's use this hung wall concept?" In addition to Newmar, I know Travel Supreme did and Entegra currently uses hung wall construction. I'm sure other will chime in with additional manufacturers. Lou 05 Travel Supreme Envoy

RE: Back-alarm

I just disconnected the plug at the horn. Simple enough and can easily be restored if the next owner wants it. Lou 05 Travel Supreme Envoy (without the annoying backup alarm)

RE: Country Coach solid front axel

Mike, I have a solid front axle in my TS (Spartan Mountain Master Chassis) and it handles likes a dream. Before we purchased this rig I drove the same coach with an IFS and to be honest, I couldn't tell the difference. There are many factors that go into handling so I suggest you drive it first and then decide. Comparing a 90's version of a P30 or F53 chassis to most, if not all, air ride diesel chassis' is apples and oranges. Good luck. Lou 05 Travel Supreme Envoy

RE: Tire pressure monitoring systems

FWIW, on the TST 507 sensors (maybe the Model 510 too, but I don't know) you can also remove the outer cover and do away with the locking cap thing. This results in a smaller sensor which is easy to remove. Lou 05 Travel Supreme Envoy
