Years ago when my sender failed, I got a verbal proposal of 500-600
bucks to drop the tank and replace the sender from Freightliner.
After trouble shooting the sender, I installed a 330 ohm resistor
in the signal line connector to shut up the warning systems.
Now my fuel gauge always reads 1/8 tank.
I travel about 400-500 miles using the trip odometer and then fill up.
When I installed new tires, it took about 400 miles for them to
produce the same road manners that I had before. I felt as if I
were driving on black ice. Went from 10 year old Goodyear G670's
to Michelin XZA2 Energy tires.
I just used La Mesa RV in Port St. Lucie FL to straighten and refinish 2 cargo doors.
While there I toured their body shop and I was most impressed with their new motorhome sized paint booth. They showed me some coaches under repair and some finished. I'm fussy and I was impressed. I worked with Leonard and JJ.
La Mesa is located just off I-95.
Built a 45 X 43 cement block building with 2ea 14 X 14 steel roll up doors.
Building has 13" thick floor and 4 sided hip roof with peel and stick
under 30 year shingles.
Each coarse of block has steel. Every 6 feet there is vertical rebar back filled. A total of 75 yards of 3K cement was used during construction.
MH is plugged into 50A
Cost was about $30 SQ FT in 2010
Subdivision is RS6 building code
I bought a fiver for my daughter in 2004 to live in while her
hurricane damaged house was repaired. I told the dealer it was
a done deal if he could deliver to her driveway about 14 miles away
within 4 hours. A husband/wife team showed up with a 1 Ton dually in
20 minutes and followed me to her driveway. Dealer paid for the
transportation which probably cost $200.00 or so.
17 in my C-7 shallow pan makes the dipstick read normal. I find that if
I check the oil after a day or two, it reads high unless I wipe the
dipstick before getting a reading. This is including the filter change.
