RE: What diesel conditioner to use for storage??

I have been winter storing boats and MOHO's for 30+ years with no problems by simply using a full tank with no additives for diesel and stabil for gas engines. Lou 05 Travel Supreme Envoy

RE: Allison Tranny Fluid

There was a poster on here some time ago that was an ex Allison guy and he was able to answer all kinds of questions. I don't remember who it was, maybe someone does remember. The gentleman you are referring to is Tom Johnson and he frequently answers questions over on the iRV2 Allison Transmission Forum. You can find him here: Former Allison Fluid Engineer Lou 05 Travel Supreme Envoy

RE: water filter

I use the same standard whole house charcoal filter that I use for my well water at home. Relatively inexpensive and readily available everywhere. Lou 05 Travel Supreme Envoy

RE: Central Vacuum / Next Project / Motor Bearing / Suggestions

I would bring it to an electric motor/alternator/generator rewind shop. They will probably have a bearing in stock and if you want, install it for far less than a replacement unit would cost. Good luck. Lou 05 Travel Supreme Envoy

RE: Installation of back up alarm

I disconnected mine because I found it annoying (and I'm sure everyone around me did too). If you do install one I would recommend an ON/OFF switch on the dash. Lou 05 Travel Supreme Envoy

RE: 1994 Winnie Chieftan 34 Ford chassis (F53 ?) BRAKES

Our previous rig was a 97 Winne Vectra on a F53 (460 V8) and when I replaced the calipers the local auto parts place informed me that Ford used a couple of different brake setups in that timeframe. I don't know if that applies to all years, but would recommend you either take a pic with measurements or bring the old ones with you when you go to get replacement parts. Lou 05 Travel Supreme Envoy

RE: Hardwood Floor Installation or ???

Engineered wood. Dimensionally stable. Adhered with urethane adhesive. Will not give you any trouble. Couldn't agree more !! Lou 05 Travel Supreme Envoy

RE: Over the door awning

I realize this doesn't directly answer your question about converting to a manual awning, but I would consider removing the motor and getting it repaired at a motor rewind shop. It will be better than new at a fraction of the cost. Lou 05 Travel Supreme Envoy

RE: How old is too old, subjective question but I want opinions

We recently asked ourselves the same question when we considered an upgrade to an Entegra. However, other than the use of carpet in the living room area, there is nothing we dislike about our current rig. Therefore, we decided to keep what we have. Based on your statement: We can afford a new one but we love the one we have. I think you already answered your question and would recommend you hang on to it until you no longer feel you love the RV you have. Good luck in whatever direction you go. Lou 05 Travel Supreme Envoy

RE: How young were you when you bought your first DP?

I started out with 34' sailboat at 34, then moved on to a 34' gasser at 51 followed by a 38' DP at 55. I retired at 57 (2 years ago) and envision a slightly larger DP in a couple of years after my wife retires. I believe the most important thing is that it doesn't matter what the toy is (boat, motorcycle, car, TT, 5er, gasser, DP) it's that you enjoy it. Lou 05 Travel Supreme Envoy

RE: transporting a rv fridge

Many folks have purchased replacement cooling units from both the original manufacturers and the Amish aftermarket suppliers. Since these are usually shipped to your location (UPS/FEDEX/USPS), I doubt the shipping carriers maintain them in a vertical position the entire trip. However, the best place to get an answer is to ask the manufacturers. Good luck. Lou 05 Travel Supreme Envoy

RE: 87' Monaco Executive

The moderator (1492) moved it from "Technical Support" to the "Class A" forum, both of which are part of rv.net. You'll have better luck in the Class A forum finding someone familiar with the engine/MOHO to answer your question. Also, iRV2.net and rv.net are two separate forums. Lou 05 Travel Supreme Envoy

RE: Is anyone still using a car dolly?

I've had both. Although 4 down is clearly easier, the dolly is no where near as difficult as some would have you believe. If you find a good vehicle already set up to tow...great, but if not and you find a car that you want, IMO a dolly is fine. Good luck. Lou 05 Travel Supreme Envoy

RE: Washer dryer

We hardly ever use ours. The run time to winterize/de-winterize is probably about the same as actually washing clothes. Lou 05 Travel Supreme Envoy

RE: Recommendations for an RV Park near UNC.

We've stayed at Spring Hill a couple of times, nothing fancy but a good place to stay with a really nice owner (at least it was a few years ago). There isn't much else in the area. Lou 05 Travel Supreme Envoy
