RE: Changing transmission fluid

Ya, sorry, FAT FINGERS above. Five gallon pail= 5 time 4 quarts/gallon= 20 quarts. 20 quarts minus one left over is, as others have posted 19, not 29. Sorry for the mis-key-- went back and edited it.

RE: Changing transmission fluid

Edited to correct "fat finger" quantity. 19 quarts for fluid and filter change is correct. Sorry. Very simple. Just did it earlier this month. From Allison, buy a 5 gallon pail of Transynd. Fluid change requires 19 quarts, so you will have one quart left over. Also, from Allison the appropriate filter kit (depends on sump depth). It comes with instructions. Also need a 3/8" drive torque wrench. Start by washing the bottom of the transmission so you don't get dirt in it.

RE: leaning to the right

Again, if you are talking about sway bar/panhard rod bushings, that will have no affect on lean. They need to check springs and spring shackles carefully.

RE: leaning to the right

Looking at your floor plan, I suspect the right side is quite a lot heavier: Both galley slide (weight of slide plus appliances, plus cabinet, plus your stuff) and bedroom slide are on the right side. Have you weighed the 4 corners-- if so, what are weights? Has it always leaned or is this new. Speculating that the answer will be to add a leaf/spacer to the low side, assuming nothing worn or broken.

RE: leaning to the right

PLEASE, when asking a chassis question, let us know what chassis you have. Without that information, we really can't give good advice. By going to your profile and looking at past posts, looks like you have the F53 chassis. So, leaf spring suspension. Rear stabilizer (assume you are talking about the sway bar/panhard rod)will NOT cause a lean. Couple of causes: One side loaded heavier than the other. Weak spring Worn shackle That is the ride height difference? Common remedies for the low side: Add a leaf Add a spacer Replace spring pack

RE: Sumos on Front

Again, let's be careful comparing suspension upgrades on so extremely different chassis. Chevy/Workhorse P vs Ford F53 are COMPLETELY different front suspensions.

RE: Replacing chassis battery with group 27 batteries

What will start a Cummins B will not necessarily start a Cummins C. Either go with two group 31's or another 8D. BUT, at this point, we don't know for sure that the chassis battery is bad. Need to confirm: 1. That it is getting a charged from the alternator (voltage 13.5+ with engine running at 1000 RPM). 2. That after being fully charged, that it passes a load test (free at any place that sells batteries). When you have the "no start", does using the boost switch allow it to start?

RE: Sumos on Front

On the front of a P chassis, better off with: http://www.supersteerparts.com/products/supersteer-springs.html Don't know how you could even fit the Sumos in the P's A arm IFS suspension.

RE: Going down steep grades with a Class C

it is cheaper to replace brake linings than a transmission. bumpyNo real wear on the transmission unless it is shifting gears. Pull the lever and hold the same gear for the entire decent and there is no issue. If the RPM gets high then use the brakes to bring it down and let it coast back up. CORRECT. And, if you are continually speeding up, firmly apply the brakes long enough to slow down enough to downshift to a lower gear that will better hold your speed in equilibrium.

RE: Going down steep grades with a Class C

it is cheaper to replace brake linings than a transmission. bumpy While true, over-use of the service brakes on long descents can lead to a CRASH. A crash is not cheaper than a transmission. And, used properly, the transmission was designed to give engine braking. Remember, brakes turn momentum into HEAT. There is a lot more momentum in a heavy vehicle than in a car or SUV. But brake surface area and cooling physically can not be that percent larger than in your car or SUV. Hence the need to drive a heavy vehicle differently than a small one.

RE: Winnebago Aspect 26A/Itasca Cambria 26A

PPL has an '05 up in Cleburne Thanks, saw that one on their website. Trying to avoid a 550 mile drive just to see if one should go on the short list. Probably get a lot more candid comments from current owners than from a salesman anyway!

Winnebago Aspect 26A/Itasca Cambria 26A

Dianne and I are looking to downsize. One of the coaches on our list (just from internet searching) is the 2005-2008 Winnebago Aspect 26A/Itasca Cambria 26A. We are in League City, TX (just south of Houston). Would really appreciate it if anyone in the area would allow us to look at theirs so we can rule in/out that selection. Thanks.

RE: Suspension Air Bags

Give Freightliner (the factory in Gaffney) a call with your VIN. They can give you the PN. Freightliner 800 385-4357

RE: Suspension Air Bags

Yup, saw the Workhorse diesel pusher chassis prototype summer of 2008 at a Caterpillar RV Engine Owners Club Rally in Bloomington, IL (just east of Caterpillar HQ in Peoria, IL).

RE: Suspension Air Bags

Sorry, got me confused. Was not aware that Workhorse produced any DP chassis in 2000. Yes, am aware that they did some later. So, if Workhorse, contact Workhorse for the PN's. Freightliner was the large chassis manufacturer of DP chassis at that time.

RE: Norcold 1200 Frig won't run on Propane ?

How far into the "light" process does it get? Can you hear the ignitor "clicking"? Can you feel/hear the gas valve opening and/or smell propane? Do you see any flame? If so, now long? And, yes, all this depends on the PC board receiving 12+ VDC. But, that applies to running on 120 VAC as well (the PC board still runs on 12 VDC irrespective of "heat source".

RE: Suspension Air Bags

Yes, is this a P chassis and these are the FRONT air bags which are inside the front coil springs? Easy to tell if it is a P chassis-- it has the independent front suspension (looks like the front suspension on a Chevy PU. The other chassis have solid front axle.

RE: Where to buy tires online?

If an FMCA member, they have fleet discounts with both Michelin and Continental. Worth exploring if not a member-- can get pricing directly from the FMCA website.
