RE: C7 oil pan rust

My 2005 C-7 oil pan paint is still shiny. No road salt down here.

RE: Fleetwood and Bounder Owners 2002 to 2008

No serious problems. Refer recalls and my fuel level gauge stopped working. Traced it to a bad sender unit. Had an air bag get punctured.

RE: Ham radio repeaters

I use an app called Repeater Book. It lists all repeaters in order of distance from your phone. Another way is to purchase the ARRL repeater directory. I've made many contacts while traveling and stationary. I prefer 40 meters but that's another story.

RE: Staying in parking lots??

I always look forward to staying at the Danbury CT Welcome Center on I-84 NB. It is so nice that I stay there on my return trip from Nova Scotia. There is 24 hour security, satellite friendly, water and a dump station there. Another favorite is the Augusta ME Walmart.

RE: Dodge Durango

Yes. I have towed my 2002 Durango 4X4 over 15K miles using a 2001 Bounder with the F53 chassis and V-10. I did not experience any problems. Go for it !!

RE: changing your own oil - is it worth it?

I do all my own oil changes. I know where ALL the grease fitting are. I don't over fill the engine oil and I use OEM filters primed thru the inlet side. Safety checks are made during servicing in my own garage. Used oil is transported to be recycled. I simply don't trust any facility to do the job properly. Now that I'm 73, complete annual servicing takes me about 3 hours.

RE: Alignment Before or After New Tires ?

Aliments are not based off the tire but the wheel. Exactly !!!! It would be helpful for the alignment technician to see the old tire wear pattern if possible. I frequently take photos of items I need to remember or show to others. Don't forget to insure that the alignment tech checks the front end and steering components for wear. He will also "center" the steering wheel. Be sure to tell the alignment tech if there are any noises or wandering issues as he may want to increase the caster angle a little.

361 works for me.

RE: Manual inflation of Freightliner suspension

My manual suspension air in Schrader valve is on the air drier behind the rear axle on the drivers side. My valve up front by the generator is for air supply out.

RE: Who turns off coach power? Re: Norcold

"Who regularly turns off their coach power, and have you had any Norcold black box problems because of it?" I do and never a problem with my 1200. It is normally off and is turned on the day before a trip. Coach stays plugged into 50A with the master switches off.

RE: Holes into coach

Foam them as described above. I had to foam an opening in my electrical compartment.

RE: Tracvision help please!

I purchased a antique Phillips DSX5500 (Direct TV) receiver for $10.00 on eBay as it works perfectly with the S2 antenna. The DSX5500 also has a audible tone for manual aiming which is helpful.

RE: Driving a class A

After 30 minutes, I gained some degree of confidence. Now after 50K miles, I'm much more relaxed. I still prefer to avoid major cities however.

RE: Plugging in at home

I'm plugged into 50 amp service 24/7/365. Chassis batteries are maintained by a small trickle charger. House batteries take about 1 gallon of water a year. My Direct TV receiver also stays "active" and doesn't require refreshing when leaving on a trip.

RE: Changing C7 Fuel Filter

I get at mine from under the bed. Loosen with a fabric strap wrench and lower the old filter a bit. Place used filter in a Zip Lock bag and place the bag in a plastic container. Properly dispose of used filter. Fill new filter as described above, place in Zip Lock bag, install and tighten. Start engine and observe for any problems. Keep towels handy....

RE: New Problem with Building a MH Garage

Adjust the location of the leach field as necessary. This will be the cheapest option. Install conduit/piping for future use. Don't forget to install "pull wires" in the conduit. Suggest 1 1/4" conduit.
