Look at a Chinook

RE: Ford V10 no starting power

Just replaced one. Find the pos. wire on battery and start tracing back. Should be next thing in line.

RE: electric or surge brakes for tow dolly

I tow a Prius also. I have electric brakes. With surge, you can't back up even a little bit. You can also just feather the brakes with electric.

RE: Cracked AC plastic cover

First drill a small hole at the end of the crack, or it will continue. I used white headed pop rivers and a thin piece of aluminum backing to reinforce the crack.

RE: Inner Door / Camping Door / Auxilery Door / HELP with Glass

If you take the plastic runner out to slip the glass in, how do you then reinsert the plastic runner?

Rear brakes, how many miles?

Just had brake job done. Got about 35k since last brake job up front. Put new Bosch rotors and carbon metallic pads up front. Shop said rears were still in great shape and don't need anything. Ford E350 with 81,000 miles. I know fronts do the majority of braking, but just how long should the rears go?

RE: Kinked fuel tank filler hose

No, this is pretty much under the shower stall.

Kinked fuel tank filler hose

Been harder and harder to fill gas tank. Looked today and found a serious kink where the hose has a steep radius bending into the top of the tank. Replacing hose would be simple IF you could get to the hose clamp. It was installed where the tightening screw is impossible to get out without dropping tank. A dremmel cutoff wheel would be quick if it was not on top of a GAS TANK. So, do hoses like this collapse over time. I've wedged a block of dense blue board foam to help lessen the kink, but it is still noticeable. A piece of hacksaw blade would be hard to saw due to location of clamp. Any ideas on how to remove hose clamp?

RE: Towing a Prius

Pull our Prius on a dolly. Very first time taking off of dolly, every light on dash was on. A call to a very knowledgeable service manager said every thing was OK. Onboard computer said hey.. Rear wheels are going 60 miles an hour, but front wheels not turning???? Just turn on and drive around block, turn off, turn on. Guess computer learned, as has never happened again. Only thing is you need an extra set of yellow ramps to get loading angle so front air dam doesn't drag.

RE: Repainting Motorhome Exterior

X2 on Mikes Custom in Breman. Had 2 women come over to us and asked if this was the new Chinook that was being built. Mine is 17 years old! It now looks that good.

RE: 97 e350 front brake rotors

The owners manual is too generic covers many models and options. There is an ABS light on the dash. There needs to be a book specific to the cutaway van.

RE: 97 e350 front brake rotors

PCONROY that's the safest bet you will ever make! Op.

97 e350 front brake rotors

My rotors after long braking downhills are really shaking the steering wheel by the time we get to the bottom. Sticking to the subject of the rotors, I'm looking at getting drilled and slotted, or another forum some suggest frozen rotors. These frozen are running $ 225 each or there about. At one point on recent trip I had a garage pull one wheel and check and everything looked OK. Ceramic pads still had a lot of life in them, and by the time wheel got pulled, everything had cooled down so nothing noticeable about the rotor. So who has done what with either the drilled or frozen rotors, and did they really make a difference? When shopping for rotors one of the questions asked is ABS front and or back. I know they are on the front, how to check on the back(drums on the back)?

RE: TRC 34730 BUZZING surge guard

Op here. Just saved $250. You have to remove the 6 screws holding the back on. Take a utility knife and cut around the edges to free up the sealant they used. I took the cover off the contractor and found a washer jamed between the contacts. One that had come off the screws that came loose. Put it back together and seems to be working fine now. JB welded the contactor to the case so that won't be coming loose again.

TRC 34730 BUZZING surge guard

Unit has been rattling something inside for some time. Plugged in on recent trip and a LOUD buzz sounded, unplugged and called TRC. Pretty much tough as out of any warranty. Pulled back plate off and found all 4 screws and washers had backed out of the square D contactor that holds it within the plastic housing. How would you safely check out the Contactor? The Square D is a 8910DPA32. Found some on the net with this number, but they have a V## following.

RE: Bike Rack receiver wiggle

Go to a home store and get a pack of plastic shims that are used in the installation of doors and windows. Drive the shim in the excess space in the receiver tube with a hammer and snap off the excess. Works great, simple to install and is cheap! No wrenches needed if you ever need to remove.

RE: No brake light or turn signal.

Op again. Did turn out to be the multifunction switch. Small local dealer had a switch that worked. Dealer markup was GREAT! But when on the road no choice. Honest took longer to calculate labor time than install. They charged .8 hrs, took .25 hrs from when he drove back till delivery. But again, what can you do. $21 for shop supplies!!!! Non used. $249 total

RE: No brake light or turn signal.

And that bothers the brake lights also?
