RE: creeping seals on windows AND windshield?

For those on the West coast, here's a company that also repairs dual pane windows. We had our cockpit windows by Se-Gi repaired by Motion windows, did a great job. http://www.motionwindows.com/ Good luck and safe travels...:)

RE: creeping seals on windows AND windshield?

Another good treatment for weather seals around windshield and other windows is to periodically apply some 303 Aerospace Protectant on the seals. It also works well to extend life of the toilet flush valve seal. We still have the original seal in our 2000 coach. Every couple of months or so, I dump water out of bowl and spray some 303 around the seal and let it set a couple of days then replace water in the bowl.

RE: Grey & black tank

With our coach if there's a question about the black tank fluid level, I can hold the flush valve open (ball valve type) and and using a flashlight visually check the fluid level.

RE: The good old radiator

Long shot, but with what you describe, your timing chain may be worn to the extent cam timing may have been compromised. I had an 84 coach with the 454 and had to replace timing chain, however it had high mileage on engine, 92k miles.

RE: purchase of older stored motorcoach

What kind of tires are best? You'll receive many and varied recommendations on which Tire brand is best. We've found the Bridgestone brand works best for us in that we've been using Bridgetone tires for 14 years on our coach with zero problems. Just keep in mind that tires are the weakest link between your coach and the pavement and if one blows out it can result in serious damage to your coach. P.S. The Zephyr was Tiffin's top of the line coach for that time period. Best of luck and safe travels...:)

RE: What is average spent on 2001 or older motorhome maintenance

When you speak of repairs do you mean repairs due to failure of coach structure; systems; appliances, etc., and/or failure of engine-chassis-drive train components? If so, then yes, it seems a bit excessive.

RE: MH friendly gas stations

When traveling on the interstates, we also try to fuel up at pilot or flying/J stations (now owned by pilot) as most of them have RV lanes with pumps. Also if you have one of their cards there's a 3 cent per gal discount.

Maybe one of the moderators can explain why the title says that this forum is especially for Class A Motorhome travelers. Perhaps one of the moderators may choose to close this thread:R

RE: Five Star Tuning Mod

Before we stray too far off my original post, based on my current driving profile, should/would I see enough benefits if install the tuning mod? Probably not, but it's your call and your $$$ to spend Good luck with whatever you choose to do..

RE: Class A Motorhomes

By title, this is a Class A Motorhome forum. I request that forum members put in their Profile the type of Class A Motorhome that they own. Or, I request that they place the type of Class A Motorhome that they own in the their signature. Why? Because I have observed or suspect by the responses to members posts that a significant number of posters own Fifth wheels, Travel Trailers, of other RVs other than a Class A Motorhome. The mindset of someone that owns other than a Class A Motorhome tends to make their posts worthless. So, if a reader of the posts knows that the member does not own a Class A Motorhome, then the OP or other reader can take the members post with a grain of salt and move on to other members post that are more relevant to the OPs post. Interesting, my observation is somewhat different in that most posts I've had occasion to read in the Class "A" forum relate to Class "A" coaches. Granted, the OP may not always list the brand of class "A" coach they own which I agree would be most helpful to forum members responding to the OP's post. Safe travels to all....:)

RE: Five Star Tuning Mod

With the newer 362hp engine with 457 lb ft of torque I would think you should have plenty of power and wouldn't need the power tune. We have the older 310hp engine and I did get the tune for a bit more power, as we travel extensively out west navigating mountain grades. I was after the power and not overly concerned about fuel economy. You might want to contact Mike at 5 Star tune and ask which tune would be best in your case. Best of luck & Safe Travels

RE: Tires: Michelin vs. Bridgestone

Personally, I'll only run Bridgestone tires on our coach, been using them for 14 years now. Mine are the R250F series load range "G". And yes, I'm extremely biased toward the Bridgestone brand due to the trouble free service they've provided over the years. Good luck with your choice of tires and safe travels..

RE: Turned Away

I just left my local Ford dealer after they refused to service my F-53 ford mo ho on the grounds that it was too big. Now ths is not a old time Mom and Pop dealer, this is a dealer with multipal brands. My question is what if would no longer move? What if it was a major warrenty issue and not just an oil change? Is there no recorse? Whar would you do? You might give Ford Customer Service a call at 800 444-3311 and perhaps they can direct you to a dealer that can service your coach. Best of luck & safe travels...

RE: Spare Tire Mount for a Class A

A spare came with our new 2000 coach, and in 14 years, haven't had to use it. Hope it stays that way.

RE: Insurance for older coaches

We insured our first coach a 1984 Airstream Classic with Foremost Insurance Company. Our current coach is also insured by Foremost. Have been extremely pleased with their no-hassle claim service and and no major premium increases .

RE: Upgrades to 1999 stock V10

Many folks find that by installing exhaust headers and a free-flow exhaust system coupled with reprogramming the PCM (computer) with a 5-Star tune does wonders waking up the older v10's. Did it with our v10 powered 2000 coach and very pleased with the results. I'm sure some other forum members can provide you with additional suggestions. Good Luck & Safe Travels...

RE: K&N filters

I find it most interesting that every time the K&N filter topic comes up on the forum, it always seems to generate a firestorm of controversy. Usually someone will post a report on, or a link to air filter test results that are extremely unfavorable to the K&N filters citing their failure to block harmful particulates that when ingested can result in severe engine damage and/or the contamination of Mass Airflow Sensors. I’m certainly not qualified to dispute those claims, however in 2005 we had the Banks system installed on our 2000 coach at 40k miles. Of course the system included the air intake assembly using the K&N filter. Now, nine years later with 85k miles on our coach, so far, we’ve not experienced any minor or major engine failures nor any contamination of the Mass Airflow Sensor. Hopefully the future will spare us from any major engine failures during our continued use of the K&N filter. Best regards and safe travels to all...
