RE: Onan Locked Up

Do you know if the oil and filter had ever been changed on it?

RE: Driver seat not working - questions

Had the same problem a couple months ago. I had my coach in for service for a few days and when I picked it up to drive home I couldn't get the drivers seat to move at all. After a fair amount of troubleshooting I discovered that the dealer had hit the "Salesman switch" by the entry door to turn off power so the battery wouldn't run down. That also shuts off power to the power seats on my rig.

RE: 40 Ft. Motor home with 22ft. trailer (Camp Rules)

I've seen several rigs pulling big attached trailers at campgrounds all over the country. Must be OK as they are out there in numbers.

RE: Tire blew and destroyed storage box

My insurance (CSAA) covered the damage from my tire blowout...$12,000. Check with your insurance company.

RE: Very Scary Tow Car Breakaway

We had a breakaway of our G/C of a different nature. In almost 50 years of towing stuff I have never had. Returning from the SC coast to western NC, after 265 miles we were almost to our exit on I26. Starting up a slight hill I felt a 'bump' and thought the transmission had downshifted hard. I looked in my left mirror and saw about 6 inches of the jeep outside the coach. The 'bump' was when the toad hit the end of the safety cables. Now we were starting down the other side of the hill and the jeep caught up with the coach when I started braking. I came to a stop and found the tow bar had pulled out of the receiver! Some way the safety pin had come out allowing the pin to come out of the receiver. I hook the safety cables from the bottom up so maybe the ends of the cable hook hit the pin, popping it out. We did stop at a rest area about 30 miles back but I don't want to think someone removed the pin on purpose! The tow system is Blue Ox and everything worked as it should. The safety cables did not let the car move away enough to activate the break away brakes. I felt very lucky that it worked out as well as it did. No one was hurt and minor damage($1500) to the rear of the coach. I went back and rechecked the base plate attach bolts and everything was good. My tow bar is held in the receiver with a locking type pin. Keeps it from falling out or malicious removal. It also keeps it from being stolen. Hmmm, come to think of it I wonder where the key is. It's been on there 10 years now. How does time go by so fast?

RE: 2004 Workhorse R-Vision TrailLite Motorhome Dash LCD Display

I'm on my third Actia gauge. The original LED readout was gray and became garbled like yours. The second was orange in color, making it easier to read. It died and now I'm on my third. Mine were all covered by warranty and the dealer replaced them. What color is yours?

RE: Dual water pump upgrade in 85 Pace Arrow

I'd be curious as to how much pressure you are developing. I have a hose bib in my water bay that I can attach a pressure meter to and see how much pressure my water pump is producing.

RE: North Platte Nebraska

Stayed here We stayed at Holiday park. Bailey Train Yard A couple miles from the campground is the largest railroad yard in America. It's funny you posted this thread now because I was wearing my T-shirt from the train yard today. You sit on the 7th floor of a tower building and look down on the yard as retired engineers answer questions about railroading. Great place if you like trains!!!

RE: Rear brakes smokin'!!

I use an IR gun every stop to check for dragging brakes and low tire pressure. what if you never stop ? or don't stop for hours ? I can appreciate the laser thermometer tactic but its only good when you stop. a good TPMS monitor that also monitors temperature will alert you long before you stop. I agree with you. However after seeing so many posts of the problems with the TPMS systems it looks like they are a bit of a pain.

RE: Norcold Recalls

It's been my impression, after watching web chats such as this one, that there are more problems with the Norcolds after the recalls than before. And all this to fix a problem, the frequency of which is unknown. Amen.

RE: Honda Pilot

You can flat tow it as is.

RE: gas price down

Filled up with gas yesterday here in Clovis, California. It was only $4.19 a gallon! Down from $4.33 last week. You guys better count your blessings.

RE: Acceleration 0 to 60 in 30 Seconds

Today I was able to do my speed test without the toad. Same conditions...level and no wind. Shaved 5 seconds off to 25 seconds. Also I went over the Grapevine today with no toad...nice.

RE: Acceleration 0 to 60 in 30 Seconds

Will be on a return leg of this trip to San Diego and won't be towing the toad so I plan to do another 0 to 60 test without the toad Friday. Should be interesting. Thanks to all who replied.

RE: Towable vehicles

See if it towable Pick out a car you like and then go to the Remco site. That site will tell you if you can tow it or how to modify it to tow.

Acceleration 0 to 60 in 30 Seconds

0 to 60 in 30 Seconds I timed my acceleration getting on the freeway the other day. Flat ground and no wind. 2004 Worhorse 8.1 with Allison transmission. I'm about 25,800 lb with the toad. Anybody else ever time their takeoff time?
