Tireman vs CW (Borg)

Lots of rave for tireman DULLAY valve extenders, 6 for $135 + shipping. CW has ( rear only) BORG $45. Really, how much difference, both seem to be similar shape and material, same installation. Anybody go with the CW product? Yes I appreciate quality, but that's a lot of $ difference.

RE: How much to paint a 40 foot Class A?

X2 for Mikes in Bremen. Did mine 3 years ago. Still get comments on my class C thinking it's the new to come out Chinook. It's a 1997!

RE: E450 questions

Just turned 100k and about to service the transmission. Funny but both e40d and 4r100 both use the same filter. However in reading, some models of the newer trans have a deeper pan requiring a longer neck. Will pull mine out before ordering! Dextron has got $$$$!

RE: E450 questions

J/D, my 1997 e350 VIN says an 44e transmission, which is a e40d, so 97's can go either way?

RE: Trans temp

Op here. Highest I've seen was 179' was on our last trip. Pulling some 18 degree hills along the st Lawrence in Quebec. So I guess that wasn't too bad then.

Trans temp

What would be a too high transmission temp as shown on a scan gauge. Ford v10, e40d trans and say outside temp of 80 degrees.

RE: Installing Roadmaster RSSC steer damper, Questions?

There is a metal cupped washer that keeps the spring on. On mine the spring pulled over the cupped washer, either the spring end expanded or the washer wore somewhat and sorta shurnk. After talking to tech support, we came up with a way to reinstall the washer, but it pulled right out again, so they sent me a brand new shock. It looks like the new cupped washer might be a little bit bigger. We are still on the road and didn't have an accurat enough measuring tool to tell. If you look at your drag link, it came move up and down quite a bit. Under certain road conditions, I believe the spring makes contact with the Ubolts if the bracket is mounted backwards. I would think cutting off the exposed thread after torqueing might prevent it from getting snagged. Again this time I mounted the bracket as it was designed.

RE: Installing Roadmaster RSSC steer damper, Questions?

The trick to getting it right the first time is to determine the position of your steering wheel when going down a long straight road. Mine is off about 2 degrees to the left. This is the position you want your wheel to be in when you do your install. Just last week had to replace Miya Roadmaster where the return spring had pulled loose from the damper. Their tech support was GREAT as they sent me a new one to acampground we new we were to be at for a few days. Now about the "backward " install of the drag link bracket. I also called on my original install about was it ok to install backwards and they said ok. However when I replaced mine, I noticed the paint on the spring was scrapped off, in one area, like it was rubbing against the Backward placement off the U bolts. I installed the new one with the bracket U bolts installed to the driver side as it should be. I returned my damaged one back to Roadmaster with a note as described above. Just saying, check your bolt clearances. "

RE: Motorhome hitch receiver has play in it

As I mentioned, plastic shims. You buy them in packs. As they are plastic, they slide out real easy. I've never had one stuck where I couldn't pull the receiver out. The thick part faces out. Because they are tapered, you only need one, where using old oil plastic, will involve multiple pieces till you get the thickness right. And doesn't involve another wrench to remove another bolt to remove the receiver. Anyway, just a simple solution to a simple problem.

RE: Motorhome hitch receiver has play in it

Go to your local hardware store and buy a pack of plastic shims. The kind used to install doors and windows. Drive the narrow end into the receiver till tight. Break off remainder sticking out. Solid as a rock!

RE: Reducing "Tractor Trailer Push" E-350 Class C

Helwig installed on my e350 was the best thing ever for handling when being passed by big rigs. Installed myself with help of a couple of axel stands to hold it up while bolting up. If you do it, be carefull of pinching the fuel line with the unbolt s. Took awhile to figure out why it wouldn't crank. :)

RE: Born Free vs ??? Class C Coaches

Chinook. Even though the original company quit in 2006. One solid piece of fiberglass, no seams anywhere.

RE: Spare tire on the roof?

Moved mine from the bumper to the roof. Tire and rim, class C 16". Pretty solid fiberglass roof. Got a piece of 12" square stainless steel plate, about 1/4" thick. Enough ss screws around perimeter to hold down, silicone in screw holes first. Had tire mounting bracket welded to plate first. After every thing screwed in place, laid 2 layers of heavy fiberglass cloth over everything. Will NEVER leak or shift. People comment about how to get it down if I need it. Gravity is your friend here. Getting it up the first time was not much of a problem, just slid it up on an inclined extension ladder. Only hard part is checking air pressure. Tire has a heavy latch secured plastic and metal cover over spare to protect from weather exposure.

RE: What size fuse

Op again. The unit ships with "2 feet 7 awg " (I know!) I plan on running about 6' #4.

What size fuse

Going to add a 1000 watt pure sine wave inverter. Want to install a ANL fuse between inverter and battery. What size fuse should I use? Will be nothing more than Cpap machine or tv.

RE: repainting my 2002 Adventurer

X2 on Mikes. My 97 was painted 2 years ago. Still looks like it rolled of the showroom floor.

RE: Electrical one way, not the other

I did have to jiggle the meter probes to get a reading?
