RE: Actia Instrument Repair...

What was wrong with the original one? Mine has been replaced twice for the digital read out being unreadable.

RE: Banks Upgrade Question... Voids Ford Drive Train Warranty?

How does it affect the smog test here in California?

RE: My toad gets 133 MPG while towing

I've averaged 7.1 mpg over 80,000 miles pulling a 4,000lb toad. On a recent trip, without the toad to Quartzite and back, about 1,200 miles, I averaged 8.1 mpg. I calculate by hand all mpg figures as I don't trust the figures that the engine computer displays.

RE: Lack of Horsepower

Based on my loss of power in an 8.1 gasser I would suggest cleaning your MAF. Which means Mass Air Flow sensor. It controls the mixture of air and fuel. About $10 for a spray can of cleaner.

RE: Workhorse Avg Fuel Economy

My average over the last 80,000 miles is 7.1mpg pulling a 4,000lb toad. I don't even look at that reading on the gauge...My thought is that it lies. Kinda like VW.

RE: Massachusetts to east coast florida

I am looking for the best route, road condition and mileage, to Hutchison island , Florida from central Massachusetts. I will welcome any advice. I have a 32 ft class a towing a Honda CRV. I believe that this takes the Garden State Parkway out of the plan. All suggestions and ideas will be greatfully accepted. Will be leaving Jan. 10, 2016. I'm assuming this is your first trip to Florida. Don't make the mistake I made the first time I went there in January. Have reservations made well in advance!!! Like now.

RE: Hope this wasn't YOUR slide-out!

Makes you wonder if he ever uses his mirrors. For what it is worth the signal to alert others of an emergency is three loud noises, repeated over time. 3 horn toots, 3 gun shots, 3 taps on a wall, 3 blasts of a whistle, 3 flashes of light, etc. Whenever you hear 3 of something repeated that means someone needs help.

RE: To cover the RV, or not.

You said you read an article in Motorhome Magazine that recommended it. Notice that the magazine has advertisers who sell covers. Of course they recommend it otherwise they lose their advertisers. Used a cover a couple times years ago. Won't ever do it again for all the listed reasons.

RE: Syn oil in generator

I had a friend who owned a British MG sports car. He said "If there ain't oil under it there's no oil in it." Like Dennis said....check it for oil.

RE: Coach Batteries

I would buy a hydrometer, about $10, and test all four batteries. I'd make my decision based on that. A random specific gravity reading is meaningless. For it to be meaningful, you need to (try to) individually charge each battery fully and then take a reading. And of course if you already have AGMs getting that sample of fluid is gonna be kind of tough. :) You are correct. The hydrometers come with instructions so I was not going into great detail.

RE: Engine cooling system

It can be a sign of a leaking head gasket. You might start to notice a white smoke when you're under full throttle. That's coolant steam going out the exhaust. It can be caused by a leaking head gasket or by a hole in the EGR cooler. Both are bad news. A good garage can check for both. They can put a coolant pressure checker on the coolant reservoir and see if it holds pressure. If not, they can run a compression check and look for a leaky head gasket. I'm with mabynack. I'd take it to Ford and have it checked, that way you have a record established with Ford should the problem come back at a later date. My 8.1 gas engine will get up 238 degrees sometimes and it doesn't loose any coolant, nor should yours. I use an UltraGauge to keep track of everything. $70. Track your temperature.

RE: Winnebago Vista

I didn't think they had a MSRP as is required on regular cars. Was the MSRP exactly the same at different dealers when you were doing your research?

RE: I think this guys needs a truck!!!

Obviously it's doable but I wonder what a law office would say if he encountered this combination. Any law officers on here care to comment?

RE: I think this guys needs a truck!!!

Yes, it has appeared before. More interesting is why it is in the CLASS A forum? I put it in the "A" section because I thought a few people on here might enjoy it that never see the other forums. I have never seen this clip before and found it interesting. Found it on Facebook... Speaking of Facebook, I think we need a "like" button.

RE: Recliner stuck!!!

You may want to check with a local upholstery shop as they know those things inside and out.

RE: TPMS Sensor Question

I'd move it to another tire.

RE: Removing window for cleaning

We need more information. If you tell us the make and model, etc of your RV then the people who have one can help you.

RE: tire age

I'm taking my Hankooks in tomorrow for inspection. I found the tires are starting to crack in between the ribs. I bought them 4 years ago and they probably have 5k on them. I won't by another set if hey don't cover them. Brian....what did they tell you?
