RE: In Your experiance what are best ...

Yes, the more details you give us about your needs/wants, the better we can answer. Price range. Size range. Full time/part time/tail gate. Any "must haves". How mechanical are you-- will affect older high quality vs newer entry level. Without details, many answers will boil down to "Ford vs Chevy".

See your other post on brake bleeding.

RE: brake bleeder tool

From your description of the condition of the fluid in the master cylinder, I would strongly suggest an additional FIRST step. Suck the old fluid out of the master cylinder. Fill with new fluid. Stir it around with a clean metal tool. Suck out the fluid. Repeat until it is totally clear. THEN change the brake fluid by sucking out fluid starting at the furthest location from the master cylinder (right rear). You really don't want to move all that dirty fluid through the system.

RE: Antifreeze in Atwood water heater

Only real question-- was the water heater full (of potable water) when you started adding potable antifreeze? If so, it could be too diluted to properly protect your system. Said another way 6-10 gallons of water added to the potable antifreeze changes the freeze point substantially.

RE: Age to start driving 24' class C

The BIG difference between driving a car and an RV is JUDGMENT-- the need to make decisions further ahead, as stopping and maneuvering distances are well more than for a car. Some acquire "judgment" at an earlier age, some later. Though certainly not foolproof, check the MPG they get on their primary vehicle. Anticipating stops instead of barreling up to the stop and slamming on the brakes, approaching corners at the proper speed instead of too fast and braking hard, etc WILL translate into poor performance in a much larger vehicle. And, absolutely I know older drivers who should not be behind the wheel of any heavy vehicle.

RE: Need info on mid 90's p30 or 32 chassis

Proper PSI is based on weight (based on heavier wheel position on each axle). Until you weigh it, refer to the GVWR plaque which is usually located in the driver's area. It will give the correct PSI for the OE tire size and load range (and it will list that as well) if each axle is loaded to its GAWR (Gross Axle Weight Rating). The only other information source is the sidewall of the tire which gives the max load capacity and the PSI required to carry it. Hopefully, you will not need that much, as it would mean you have no safety reserve/the tires are carrying 100% of their design capacity.

RE: Need some help with Coolant issue in 2002 Tiffin Allegro

And, if you do have a COOLANT FILTER, make sure they install a new one-- called a BLANK. It is a filter only with no SCA.

RE: 12 V electrical problem

On edit after reading Bud's post immediately below: I was incorrect-- assumed that the ignition solenoid also controlled all features that are on only with ignition on (like the dash HVAC fan). Evidently on the OP's chassis, that is not correct. Sorry for the misdirection.

RE: Broken water heater plug

A broken sprinkler head removal tool (any box store) works perfectly. And, not heating needed.

RE: Battery wiring diagram

Yup, the first interconnect wire puts them in series. The second one is the one that turns it into an arc welding experiment.

RE: Need some help with Coolant issue in 2002 Tiffin Allegro

Make sure it is the same type you already have in it now. Either green for the less expensive or red for the very expensive coolant. And, THAT is the problem. Color alone does not tell you the coolant chemistry. Sadly, no industry standards here. IMO, if going to change coolant anyway in a few months, do NOT take a chance on mixing coolant chemistries. And, if the standard diesel coolant, if you are even thinking about using it over the winter, check the pH with test strips. Poor economy to wait and have the radiator eaten by acidic coolant!

RE: Problem with new Atwood furnace

Check for closed heater vents or other restrictions that cause the SAIL SWITCH to not complete the "start cycle". Low voltage will also contribute to insufficient air flow to close the sail switch.

RE: Need some help with Coolant issue in 2002 Tiffin Allegro

David, Reality-- very unlikely you will know what coolant is in there unless there is a receipt for changing it. Worse, it could be OE and 13+ years old. The ONLY rational thing to do is flush and go back with new coolant. Make sure you use one made for diesels. Either the "low silicate for diesel with added SCA" or the newer no-maintenance OAT-based coolant.

RE: Battery wiring diagram

As a minimalist, I am fine with it-- just have to remove EITHER wire and it is a standard 12 VDC battery bank. And, that leaves you with one fine interconnect cable when you add another pair.

RE: zacatecas

Yup, Zacatacas is one of our favorite towns/cities to visit. For a gourmet meal at a reasonable price, try dinner at the restaurant in the old bull ring.

RE: Is a Western RV Alpine a Quality Coach?

Totally agree. That is a neglected, abused coach. What a shame. Did an inspection on a Foretravel last week-- same thing. A really nice coach that has been long neglected AND abused. Caveat Emptor.
