RE: 2000 harney coach ...trick to start?

If the start button in the rear works to start engine, you may have an open circuit in the 12v feed from ignition switch to the starter solenoid, just a thought. Best of luck & let us know when you find the fix..

RE: How to clean Toilet bowl seal?

On our Thetford Sealand unit I've found by dumping all the water then spraying 303 Aerospace Protectant on the ball seal and letting it soak for a a day or so works for us.

RE: Best "A". For under $350,000

I would opt for an older model Newell coach over any others.

RE: Tag Axle problems on 2000 Pinnacle 3790

You most likely have the "Henchen Tag Axle System" that we have on our 2000 Residency 3790. You may be able to get some assistance from this site of Airstream as they use the same type of axles.: http://www.inlandrv.com/axles/ Here's another site with information on the Henchen axles: http://www.inlandrv.com/tours/axle-plant/axles-briefing.htm As far as the wall separation from the floor, you'll need to remove the long molding strip on the outside under which you'll find screws that attach the sidewall to the floor. The screws may be broken, if so, you'll need to remove a screw that isn't broken and try to find the same type of screw at a hardware store, perhaps Lowes or Home depot. After finding matching screws you need to drill a hole in the sidewall in line and next to where all the broken screws are located then reattach the sidewall to the floor with the new screws. If you're lucky and the screws aren't broken off, than all that's necessary will be to tighten the screws to bring the sidewall back tight against the floor. That's how I fixed the same problem I had with my coach where the gap between sidewall and floor occurred on the driver's side just forward of the Living room slide out opening. Good luck and let us know if the fix works. Feel free to e-mail me at duvay35@yahoo.com. Best of luck and safe travels...

RE: Suggestions for making my F53 a little easier to drive

I have a 2001 Itasca Suncruiser built on a 2000 Ford F53. Just got back from a long trip. Overall it did fine, but am looking for suggestions on what to make it a little easier to drive. I have Koni FSD shocks, and I am overall ok with the ride. The problem the driving. I get blown all over the road when a truck passes by. If I encounter an uneven piece of pavement, the coach swings from side to side very easily. I'm not sure if anything can be done to help, but I'd appreciate any suggestions or success stories. We had that problem, and my solution was to install the Davis Tru-Trac stabilizing bar to our front suspension. It reduced the harsh sideways shove by overtaking 18 wheeler's to now just a gentle nudge. Here's a link to a website with more information if interested: http://www.supersteerparts.com/products/davis-trutrac-front-trac-bar-ford-f53-v10-1999-to-2006.html Best of luck & safe travels:)

RE: 2000 Residency 3790

I'm looking for any information that I can get on the 2000 Mountain High Residency. I have a friend that is selling one and I'd like to know what I'd be getting into. I've searched the forums and found very little information on these RVs except that the motor mounts have been known to wear causing issues with the back slide, the transmission cooling can cause the transmission to fail, and the stock fuel pumps can cause stalling issues. Any information on where to get replacement parts, maintenance manuals, or service would be helpful. Thank you, Ray Hi Ray, sent you a PM Jim

RE: Best Insurance

For us it's Foremost Insurance Co. been insured by them for 21 years and have enjoyed prompt courteous no-hassle claim service along with a minimal premium increase over the years. Based on our experience, highly recommend Progressive. Regards to all & safe travels.........:)

RE: Slow moving Speeder

We observe posted speed limits, if posted speed limit 55, we drive 55. Should there be a number of vehicles following behind our coach, and if a paved shoulder of sufficient width is available to drive on, we'll pull over to allow those vehicles to pass. If not, we remain in the designated travel lane where usually there's a break in vehicular traffic coming from the opposite direction where vehicles following our coach can safely pass. Best regards & safe travels to all..:)

RE: Kwikee Steps Won't Extend

Have the same problem with ours so we bought a collapsible step stool which works well for us. Replaced the steps once and motor/gear assembly & control unit a couple of times, so finally gave up.

RE: CA to MO, best route?

You might want to bring up google maps on your computer and get directions by typing in your starting point then your destination. It usually gives a couple of alternate routes. Just a suggestion. Best of luck and have a safe Journey....:)

RE: Fuel Pump Replacement 2004 Fleetwood Terra V-10

You might want to have the fuel pump relay checked. Have you had a diagnostic check done for any trouble codes? Haven't read or heard of any fuel pump problems on that late model of a coach. Best of luck and let us know the fix....

RE: 2006 Monaco LaPalma gas

Hi all, Looking at a 2006 Monaco LaPalma with 30k miles on a Ford chassis. I have had 5th wheels for many years but have decided to go to a class A so this is my first one. Looking for opinions good and bad from those of you who know something about this coach and/or chassis.Cosmetically it is very nice inside and out. This particular coach floor plan suits us and the price is budget friendly. Thanks. Just curious, why do you have a duplicate post on the same coach:@

RE: Workhorse vs. Triton Engines

Overall, the v10 is a more advanced technology engine utilizing overhead camshaft along with coil-over-plugs. However IMO the Allison transmission on the GM v8 is superior to the Ford 4R100 transmission. It would appear the newer Ford 5 & 6 speed transmissions are perhaps comparable to the Allison units. Good luck with your choice & safe travels...:)

RE: Moving to Gasser

Well, for whatever it's worth, our 15 year old 2000 Residency gas coach has served us well over the years virtually trouble free. Good luck with your next coach whatever it may be.....:)

RE: Build quality gas vs DP

I seriously question whether there's any gas powered coach, old or new that can match the build quality of a Foretravel. Just my humble opinion for whatever it isn't worth....:B

RE: Triton V-10

We have a v10 powered coach bought new in Jan 2000. It's 37'8" long with tag axle and fully loaded with 2 persons weighs in at 21,230lbs. Now with 91k miles it's been virtually trouble free. I did have the Banks system installed along with the 5 Star Tune. To improve ride comfort installed Koni FSD shocks on the front suspension along with Firestone Ride-Rite air bags on all 4 corners. Over the years, fuel mileage has averaged 7 mpg. Based on the experience with our's I can highly recommend a Ford v10 powered coach. Good luck with your choice & travel safe.......

RE: Motorhome insurance

We've had our coach insured with Foremost Ins. Co. now for 20 years and during that time have filed several claims which have been handled expeditiously with no hassle. Current annual premium for full coverage & $250 deductible is $922. Based on my experience with Foremost I highly recommend them. Good luck with your choice & Safe Travels....

RE: Houston to Palm Springs & I 10 road grades?

If your coach is powered by the Ford V10 you will find it will go into a "limp" mode (firing on alternate cylinders) should an overheating condition occur and eventually will shut down to prevent engine damage. Personally I wouldn't embark on any trip knowing of a possible fan clutch malfunction. However it's your call. Best of luck and safe travels....

RE: Best Tow dinghy

We're still satisfied with our 03 Suzuki XL-7. No fuse to disconnect, just put transfer case in neutral, trans selector in Park, turn key to accessory position unlocking steering and go. It's been a great vehicle to tow, and while being towed, mileage isn't recorded on the odometer. Good luck with your choice of a tow vehicle & safe travels.....
