RE: Is there a difference in Diesel Fuel?

Is that the price on the highway sign or the price at the actual pump? If it's the price on the highway sign, I'd be willing to bet they just haven't changed it due to the rapid fluctuation in pricing. Just the other day, I was filling my pickup at the pump. The advertised price on the sign was $2.45 and the actual pump price was $2.59. I asked at the counter and they said it changes so fast, they sometimes don't get time to change the sign. This is what's posted on Gas Buddy

RE: How to check brake pad on a Freightliner DP ?

Thanks for the input. I just crawled under and checked the pads, easiest thing in the world to see. There's no back cover, it's completely open,. I didn't measure, but my pads looked to be at least 3/4 of inch. Thanks again.

RE: How to check brake pad on a Freightliner DP ?

How do you visually check the brake pads on a 2004 Freightliner diesel pusher Freightliner Chassis? Approximately what is the minimal thickness of pad thickness? I haven't looked, but I believe I have drum brakes, if they're discs, I know how to check those. Thanks supercub, As has been stated, a simple lay-down and squirm around to the back-side of ANY of the wheels will reveal the EDGE of the brake SHOES. You don't say what make/model you have, only the chassis. About 98% of the Freightliner chassis coaches of that era are equipped with regular drum brakes. The few higher end ones MIGHT have been equipped with disc brakes. As I stated, you're only going to see the edge of the brake shoes by looking at them from behind the wheels. However, that will reveal at least one important factor. And that is, just how thick they are and, based on the mileage accumulated to that point of inspection, you MAY be able to tell ABOUT how long you may have left on them before any potential replacement. Our coach, an '04 Itasca Horizon 36GD with the C-7 330HP CAT, now has right at 83,000 miles on it and the shoes (drums) are between 5/8" and 3/4" thick. Based on that thickness, it's a pretty fair assumption that I'd be able to easily double that mileage, to around 160,000 before even thinking about replacing the shoes. But, lot's can happen in between now and that kind of mileage. Something we used on the FD in an everyday inspection of all our Fire truck brakes was a mirror and flashlight. You can get more and better angles of viewing using those, without actually worming around into positions to view the same angles. Good luck. Scott Ok, thanks, I just turned 60,000 miles on mine.

RE: Is there a difference in Diesel Fuel?

Check it out on Gas Buddy, Quick Stop in Livingston Ca, and check against other stations in the areas. I've noticed in the past they're always cheaper, but have never stopped, but I think I'm going to this time.

Is there a difference in Diesel Fuel?

Getting ready to start a trip and I need to fill up, I'll probably take 100 plus gallons to top off. I have a RV plus card that I use at Flying J's that allows for an extra discount. However there's a Quick Stop that has Diesel 35 cents a gallon less. It's a large station, even has 6 devoted truck lanes that appear to be always full, so I don't think old fuel is a problem. So is there a difference in diesel fuel? Am I safe in buying diesel there, Is it the same quality that I typically get at the Flying J's. Thanks

RE: FMCA Michelin tire program issues

Don't feel bad, I was just quoted $695.00 to mount, balance, dispose, nitrogen fill, buying the tire from a FMCA dealer. That was for 6 tires.

RE: 2006 American Tradition advice?

The American Line of motor homes are very good units. As long as you like it and it's in good condition................and the price is right, I'm sure it will be a good coach for you. Make sure you like the floor plan. Assure that it's had proper mainteance too. The mileage shouldn't be an issue. Diesels are designed to run 500,00 plus miles .

RE: Struts that hold engine compartment door open ??

Here's the info off the tag on the strut. AVM highway 76 East Marion SC 29571 1-800232-4AVM SE350V120AL 2963 Do Not open....High Pressure. I called that number but got a recording offering a free Caribbean Cruise, no mention of sturts. The last numbers are 120 I'm sure if they were rated at a 120lbs it would keep the door up, so I have my doubts if that's a rating. This is on a 2004 Fleetwood Revolution 38B. Just did some searching and found the company, will give them a call tomorrow, thanks.

Struts that hold engine compartment door open ??

The struts are to weak to keep the door up. Where can I find replacement ones. Also, is their a chart that show's the pounds or force that a strut will exert? What are these struts called? (they're black)

light strip attached to Motor home below awning?

I would like to put a light strip attached to my motor home right below the awning when it's retracted. Any recommendations on what to use? How do I attach it to the side of the motor home. I want to be able to use it if the awning is in or out, so I don't want to attach it to the awning. Doing this to provide lighting on the patio side more so then multi colored light decoration. Thanks Brian

RE: only 1/2 of the AC outlets have power

Thanks for the help. Easiest fix yet !! It was a tripped breaker on the invertor. Thanks again. Brian

RE: only 1/2 of the AC outlets have power

What can I buy to check the wires at the outlet to see if I'm getting power to there?

RE: only 1/2 of the AC outlets have power

Yes have reset both main breakers. Are the inverter breakers on the invertex itself? I will check inverter.

only 1/2 of the AC outlets have power

50 amp service, plugged into shore power. Only about 1/2 of the AC (110) outlets have power. I have a power surge protector and it tells me I'm getting power to the motor home from both sides. Tried the inverter and still only certain outlets have power. One thing I've notice is, two outlets are GFI's. One is powering up, the other GFI has no power. Tried to reset it, and nothing, it won't click, just push in the button and it springs back out. I don't know much about AC power, but I'm thinking since that GFI is bad, that it is acting as a breaker to the outlets where I'm not getting power.........is my reasoning correct or is there something else going on? Any help is greatly appreciated. Thanks Brian

RE: REXHALL OWNERS FORUM

To bad no one ever picked up on the double full length slides that Rexhall had in one of their last models. It was a good looking motor home. I wonder how that model is working out for owners now that they've been out there for awhile.

RE: Help, broke down-.over heating Cat 350 near Needles CA

Just in case you can't get it fixed in Needles, I believe there's some RV shops to the north in the Laughlin area. Good Luck
