RE: The Workhorse Isn't

If the engine overheats in a little over a mile, that indicates that you are NOT getting water circulation. This eliminates the fan clutch, transmission, dragging brakes, etc. I would look at things that will stop the water from circulating like a bad thermostat or an air pocket in the cooling system that will cause the water pump to stop pumping. Check the thermostat with a pan of hot water to make sure that it opens completely and that it is installed correctly, and not backwards. Fill the system with water and properly bleed it to make sure that all air is removed. Good suggestions. The bottom radiator hose could be collapsing or plugged. Make sure that there are new hoses in that $5000 worth of parts. Check the hoses- If a hose has a tight bend it could cause collapsing. I have one vehicle where a spring the diameter of hose ID is inserted to prevent collapsing.

RE: Paper journal recommendations

We use the Camper's Daily Log available through Camping World. We have used it since 1991 and it has proved to be invaluable in many instances to find a good campground quickly or just to reminiscence. I've had laptops since 1991 but would have lost stored data several times. Plus you can reference or input to a hard copy at anytime without the need for a boot up or power requirement.

RE: St Joseph Peninsula SP in Florida

I love St. Joe but I don't think kids will be happy for more than a day. You might want to replace it with a stay at St. Andrews in Panama City. Lots to do for the young.

RE: Campgound name changes in a.State Park

I was up there one year for the colors and thought I was in a cartoon. It was that colorful and beautiful.

RE: Battery charging service?

There are portable solar charging kits that hook up to your battery or plug in cigarette lighter. I don't know if they have the capacity you are looking for but check them out on EBAY.

RE: Discontinued Part Search help needed

Verify what manufacturers used the control. Then google that car companies name and NOS (new old stock) and start calling companies specializing in that brands obsolete parts. If they don't have the part, ask if they know who might. Some companies are very helpful and have a database indicating where the part is available.

RE: What Constitutes Vintage Class A

There is vintage and then there is reliable. I would opt for a coach from 1991 forward that has fuel injection and over drive transmission. The GMCs are neat and a classic however they lack the above two features as well as storage.

RE: What diesel conditioner to use for storage??

I have always added biocide for winter storage. Diesel does expand when it warms up so fill to 7/8 to leave room for expansion.

RE: Gas leak on Generator

Cross reference to a NAPA filter. I believe it is a filter used on older model Fords.

RE: Clearance lights continue to flash

My system will do that if a lock is out of sequence. In other words, all locks must lock at the same time. If one lock was manually locked before using the remote, my clearance lights will flash. They will also flash to indicate low chassis battery charge. This is on a 1991 but it might give ideas on items to check.

RE: 1990 Class A, 460 Ford Vision by Rexhall- maintenance

The brake fluid reservoir should be located in the drivers side front wheel well on the frame.

RE: Doing dumb things..

My back up camera monitor is built into the dash. I took it out to have repaired. The repair wasn't done and I took off on a trip. About 1100 miles into the trip, I discovered that I forgot to refasten the dash. It had been lying in place all that time. I guess air ride really does work.

RE: Any chance for Topsail without a ressie?

When you know when you will arrive, go on Reserve America website (or call) and check for site availability. Dependent upon your length of stay, you might have to reserve separate sites for different days. Flexibility is the key.

RE: How old is too old, subjective question but I want opinions

Compared to my 1991, you have a relatively new unit. We've had ours since new and don't hesitate to go coast to coast in it. As far as replacing a tranny or engine, that expense would be less than the depreciation hit the first day you drive another new one off the lot. I am afraid if I upgraded, I would be a two motorhome owner since I don't think I could part with mine.

RE: great spot without a car?

Henderson Beach State Park in Destin Florida may be a great choice. Restaurants and shopping across the highway. Very nice sites and well run park.

RE: What to do on way to New Orleans

It might take you out of the way to start in Nashville, but I think doing the Natchez Trace Parkway would be a great way to spend some time. Free campgrounds and lots of points of interest to stop at. So, Jeanette's Party Bus and Jeep in tow will have no issue on the Trace? We are looking into the idea of riding it from Nashville. Not a problem. I've seen Bluebirds with tows in the campgrounds. Since they are free, I suggest stopping by 2-3 pm before they fill up for best site selection.

RE: Got hung up and could not move. How did I get out?

Sorry but I'm boondocking with poor cell service. This post was really to help those of us with air leveling only. MM hit it as I went into the manual leveling and lowered the front and raised the back. I even waited until I had max air while holding the raise button before trying to move. I do like the suggestion of letting air out of the front tires and the bored child. I did think about increasing the air pressure in the tag 's airbags but that regulator is hard to get. I was not going any where until I got the hitch out of the asphalt. Steep driveway and bad internet/cell service. You are really roughing it!
