My air dryer filter is due for service and the local freightliner shop is telling me that the filter is $190.00, :big_eek
i think that is a little high for a spin on filter don't you think.
Does anyone know if fleetguard of another manufacturer has a filter that i can purchase that fits my chassis without breaking the bank.
It is a 1998 allegro bus, XC chassis.
The weights i listed are within a couple hundred pounds of the actual weight that i go on the road with,
i have been running with 85 or 90 psi cold in the front tires and it seems that if there is no crosswind it drives JUST OK, if there is any cross wind at all it is a real challenge to stay in your own lane, i have had to stop and get my nerve up to keep going, i have had the front end aligned,i even had the steering box rebuilt, shocks are bilsteins and in good shape, tires are only 2 years old, the MH only has 31000 miles on it.
I have a 98 allegro bus 32' freightliner w/ 275 cummins.
I am having handling problems and trying to figure out the best tire pressure to run.
The sticker by the door says the tires are 19.5" but it actually has 245/75r22.5 toyo's
I found another chassis ID card with the documentation that says 235/80r 22.5 are the right right tire size, the original michelins were changed to toyo's, i had the MH weighed and here are the #s
front GAWR is 9350#s actual weight is 6620#s full fuel, water and propane
rear GAVR is 15500#s actual weight is 14300#s
The toyo tire inflation chart show the front tires should be inflated to only 70 psi and the rears to 95 psi, the rear seems ok to me but the front seems a little low and i don't feel comfortable running these tires at 70psi, it also seems that the front of the coach is a little light, could this be part of the reason for having handling problems ?
just looking for a little input from anyone that has had the same handling problems. :scratch
