RE: Replacing tires with wider tires.

Hi, I upgraded to wider and taller tires. If you have duals it requires new rims so the offset is correct. It improved mileage and handling and got me into a "safe zone" for tire carrying capacity. I would do it again. Make sure there is fender clearance. I had 8R-19.5s on a 1993 Southwind and switched to 225-70 x 19.5 Bridgestones and never replaced anything. Ive never seen a P30 yet that a direct swap from 8R's to 22-70's couldnt be easily accomplished

RE: Tips for keeping mice out?

I've heard of a couple: moth balls (not too healthy for humans, though!), or the strongest scented fabric softener sheets. Right now I've got 4 electronic devices plugged in that emit a sound that the critters don't like and I think that is working. Plus moth balls in the basement compartments and the sheets scattered throughout inside the coach. I've seen products at RV stores, like "botanical rodent repellant". Do any of you have some favorite products or recommendations? http://www.earthkind.com/news Its worked for me for 5 years now

RE: Who pulls what toad behind their class C?

We have a class "C" Bengal Tiger (The Tardis). We are towing a Smartcar on a trailer built for the Smartcar. You don't even know it's behind you until you look at the rear camera. Towing on a trailer VS 4 on the ground allows us to back up when necessary. The Smartcar can be towed with 4 on the ground but to me it puts a lot of ware & tare on such a small vehicle. The cost of the trailer VS tow bar, break activator & toad mods is almost tit-for-tat. http://i.imgur.com/QxXmBwJl.jpg Those things plus the SmartCar crack me up. I doubt I could even get in one but they are a total hoot to see. EDIT: I see that IS a Smart Car...thought it was another of those teeny tiny auto's

RE: Who pulls what toad behind their class C?

Suggest you try touring and camping without a toad for a while.If you want to tour Boston or similar RV-unfriendly cities, consider renting a car or use available shuttle bus service to connect with tour or city busses. We have never towed anything but a toad has not been necessary for our type of RV'ing. If you tour or camp with a social groups, or don't want to spend 10 minutes disconnecting and driving the rig into town, etc. you may decide that towing is worth the cost, effort and inconveniences when en route to whereever you are going. Parking a Class C in malls, at restaurants and tourist attractions, without a toad, is not usually a problem. Ive been doing it with my wife for 17 years now...both with and without a toad!:S

RE: Fuel Prices............WHY ??

Gas prices have dropped nearly a dollar in our area..........and diesel has dropped about 10 cents.........why hasn't diesel prices maintained the same decreases as gasoline? Brian Here's a better one! Diesel fuel in my area for farm machinery ( referred to as AG fuel) is 30 cents a gallon cheaper than home heating oil and they are exactly the same product and the answer I got then I jumped the fuel distributers backside for it was...."Because thats the way we price it"..!!:E

RE: Need new couch

Why cant ya lift that sofa up off those studs and move it aside...and using a stud remover get those stubs out of the floor and install new threaded rod and use them to hold down sofa and new seat belts???

RE: Need new couch

Go to Bradd & Hall. Direct replacements in about any covering you can think of That was my first pick then saw the price at shop4seats. Probably one of those you get what you pay for. They have a mixed review. Hey Gary do you know how and were your seat belts are fastened for your couch. I just picked mine up a couple months ago and someone changed the couch and cut out the seat belts. I pulled the carpet back and on both sides of the couch and there are what looked like 5/8" or a little bigger rod cut off flush with the floor. These were about six inches off the back and side wall on both sides of couch. Not sure if that was to hold the couch down or for seat belts. Thanks Mike I'll have to look where the seat belt at fastened down for my sofa. As far as the other "bolts" you speak of Im positive they are the hold down bolts for the sofa. They came up and went thru a section of the angle iron framework of the sofa that was also the foot of it. EDIT: Mike...as far as I can tell the sofa seat belts are also bolted directly to the floor. I can see LG studs amd the metal ends of the seat belt themselves have LARGE flat washer and what appears to be ( maybe??) 3/8 nuts on the bolting each one to the floor of the coach! I think it was for BOTH purposes..1) seat belts and 2) hold the sofa down. Hope that helps some?? Sully

Who pulls what toad behind their class C?

OK...still looking at a 28 foot class C, of course on a Ford chassis with a V10 engine, and wondering what people do...if anything...for a toad? Ive got a Jeep liberty that on the scales sits at 3710 lbs and its an oldie but goodie as its a 2002 model. Ive pulled it a ton of miles behind our class A rig and would sure hate to have to get rid of it! So..what if anything do you tow when you hit the road?

RE: labor cost of Cummins ISL replacement

Unless you had a wrist pin fail and put a hole in the block, why not do an inframe overhaul. Granted if you have a Cummins dealer do it it will be $15+K. Agreed..and you would know for sure how the "new engine" had been treated from day one!

RE: labor cost of Cummins ISL replacement

RE: Cummins CAC

FINALLY got the buggy home ( at last) Cummins got me to the tune of $5500 and the genset place got me for $290 and the work that both / either did was way beyond me. She sure runs like a top now though. Sadly the camping season here is just about kaput and the monsoons are about to start in....but I'll be in like Flyn come next spring!!

RE: Fuel filter replacement on 300 Cummins ISB

The Cummins engines are designed to have the fuel filters installed dry. Once the filter is installed, you cycle the ignition switch on for a few seconds while you here the fuel pump run. You do this several times. With that said, I've found that this often doesn't work. (Someone will come along and say it works great, but that doesn't help when you can't restart your coach and start to panic.) It never worked for me!! I like to prefill my filters. Fuel enters the filter from the outer edges and exits via the large hole in the center. You always fill the filter from the outer edges so the fuel you introduce during the filter change is filtered. Many use a pvc threaded plug to plug the center hole. I just clean my hands and insert my fat thumb while adding diesel fuel. I use a short pipe nipple"screwed" into the center hole Reinstall the filter, making sure you reinstall the new O-ring(s) that came with the filter and reconnect the electrical connection. No need to get a gorilla to install the filter or use a strap wrench. I tighten mine with my hands until snug. Move to the next filter. Same procedure. Once done, fire it up and check for leaks. Here is a procedure I just posted yesterday for changing the filters on my new Dutch Star. Dutch Star filter change
