RE: Wheel nut torque on 1993 Coachman Catalina

Check to see if it is etched on the face of the lug nut. My 97 E350 are 140 lbs.

RE: VIAIR air compressors?

This is a case of you get what you pay for. Keep your motor running when you use a Viair, draws a lot of amps, and it will get hot. Nice to have for flat tires on the tractors when out in the field.

RE: Every. Decal. Peeling.

Forget the hot air removal. Just redid mine starting with a hair dryer. really made a mess. Got a 3M eraser wheel ($) and put in a corded drill. Works like a champ, and also removes the adhesive residue. This was on a 15 year old fiberglass unit so the decals were really stuck on. Ended up taking back the 3M adhesive remover ($) as not needed. Wiped down with acetone before I replaced with new decal stripes. Check out some vids on utube using the eraser wheel.

RE: air compressor

Spend the money and get a Viair. 12volts so multi uses around the farm...tractor, riding lawn mower. It really inflate a RV tire from plum flat to 65lbs in about 2 min. Very small with its kit so stores anywhere.

RE: Be Carefully Buying A Rental

Was at a NP in line to dump. rental in front was filling water from the clean up hose. I cautioned them, his reply was "we don't drink the water".

RE: Vinyl insert molding trim

I had to use a hair dryer to soften the vinyl to make sharp turns, then hold in place till it cools and returns to shape.

RE: How big is your fuel tank?

1997 E350 V10 35 gal. Are all gas pump flows the same? When in Canada never could get the pump to run by "setting the trigger". Had to nurse every gallon in by slowly squeezing the trigger. Seems like all stations down south will run till almost completly full.

RE: Towing a Toyota Prius on a dolly.

We tow a Prius on a Demco dolly. You will have to increase the ramp length(I use the 3 step plastic ramps) because the air dam up front will drag. just shut off and use parking brake, NOT the emergency brake. You cannot use safety chains over the axel or hook to anything under neath due to the shields. What I use is take the tow hook and screw into the provided ports under each light, and have a plastic coated cable with hooks on each end and hook one end to the tow hook and the other to the front of the dolly. Leave a little slack for turning without stretching the cable. had a bunch of error codes pop up the first time due to the computers seeing the rear wheels turning but not the front. Just drove around the block and everything got back in sync again. This has only occurred the very first time we towed. Use the Demco tie straps if your dolly will take the double strap hooks.
