RE: 1997 460 noise?

I was going to suggest exhaust manifold leak until I saw you just had headers put on it. Was the noise there before the headers were installed?

RE: Mirror covers....where are the big ones?

Another reason to cover them is that in some places birds will be attracted to them for whatever reason and then poop on your mirror arms.

RE: Bakersfield ca. to Phoenix

I like MarkTwain's idea, though I've never driven that route. Another way is 58, I-40, then 95 in CA or 95 in AZ(along Colorado River), making your way down to I-10. We've done that route probably 20 times. We take 95 south out of Needles on the California side. Buy gas in Quartzite. 95 is in real good condition now. Do your potty break before getting on 95 as there are not many places to pull off the road. Ask me how I know.

RE: Exhaust Manifold Gasket Leak and click, click noise?

Click click sound is typical for a gas engine manifold leak so I guess it's probably the same for diesel. On my gas engine I heard various strange noises and ticking was one of them when my exhaust manifolds went bad. Twice. Sometimes they would make noise on startup and then go away, other times they would show up after the engine was warm.

RE: Slightly used, but still running

That's how I feel when I've run half way across the country through several rainstorms and pull into a park where the rig next to me has just been washed and waxed. I'd love to park next to that....make mine look like it was new.

RE: On-Site Oil Change - Yuma

Don't let them change the transmission fluid. See the attached link, I don't know if it is the same outfit. RV Service

RE: replacing slideout motor

Let us know how you make out with that. How it is relatively simple for you.

RE: Need advice, in a lot of trouble

Purple Power I spilled a bunch of transmission fluid on the concrete next to my house after I did a transmission fluid change on my motorhome. I sprayed it with Purple Power and let it soak for an hour and then hosed off. Had to do that several times over a period of a few days but now you can't tell where I spilled it. I also have a car that leaks a bit of engine oil on the driveway and I use Purple Power on it too.

RE: Ac’s went off

Do you monitor the voltage? The worst thing for an air conditioner is low voltage. I keep a plug-in voltage meter plugged into a wall socket on my coach and if it drops to 105 volts I turn off the air conditioner.

RE: Gasoline Smell in Cabin

Holy smokes, so many replies!! :O Thank you all so much for your input! :) Yeah, I'm gonna call the dealership where I got her from and talk to them about it. Obviously, Betty needs some TLC...The probbbblem is that I'm currently nearly two hours' drive away from the dealership, because I bought Betty to move into the same area as the dealership. She made the drive out here...I hope she can make it back... :'( ---------EDIT----------- I just got off the phone with the dealer, and omg! He's gonna drive clear out here to look at Betty for me, free of charge! Wow, what a great guy. That's no short jaunt! I feel so relieved... :) What's the name of the dealership? They need to have the good publicity, sounds like an excellent outfit!

RE: Gasoline Smell in Cabin

It's important that you find out where the smell of raw, unburned gas is coming from. That is a real fire hazard. I'd suggest going to a repair facility. Thay should be able to find the leak fairly quick. What town are you located in and or do you know someone who can recommend an honest place?

RE: Thinking of switching to 4-flat towing

Remco Remco will tell you if a car is 4 down towable and what is necessary to make one towable if possible.

RE: Detailing an older motorhome

I have a 2004 LaPalma. For the past 13 years I have hand washed it with a long handled brush and Dawn dish soap. I wash and scrub the roof with a strong mix of Dawn about twice a year. I went through a truck wash that used high power sprayers and my refrigerator quit working for a day or two. Never again. I'm going to get beat up on using Dawn so while I'm at it I'll throw in the fact that I use regular toilet paper too. No RV toilet paper. Two toilets and nary a problem over the years. Oh I forgot to mention I don't use a water filter either. Nor a surge suppressor!!! I'm hiding under the table now, gonna get mean in here soon.

RE: Touring South & East US

When you hit Pennsylvania spend a few days in Gettysburg. We did a tour of the battlefield on Segways... Get some peanut butter ripple ice cream at Sunset Ice Cream Parlor downtown.
