RE: RV Blows Tire Causing Roll-Over Video

I'm not sure if it was mentioned yet, but the motorhome ended up in the travel lanes blocking both. There was an additional picture posted somewhere that I saw when the event originally happened. Thank goodness the traffic moved on and there just happened to be an open spot for the motorhome to land. Could have been even worse. MM. http://i.imgur.com/y67vBDNl.jpg

RE: 1995 Chevy 454 intermitant hard to start

My old 1994 with a 454 tbi PaceArrow did the same thing. Fuel pump relay. Mine was mounted inside the dog house near the gas pedal. It's a square box just smaller than a pack of cigarettes.

RE: Camping in a tent site

I used to read a blog by an "older gentleman" with a small class c (Tioga George) who would pretty much camp anywhere he wanted to. He'd stop on the side of the road in a subdivision at 10 or 11 pm, sleep, get up at 5, walk his dog and make breakfast and motor on by 6, there and gone before anyone even noticed him. He would pause in various legal places to freely dump tanks and refill water when needed, spend his days parked in parks or beaches. He had solar and a gennie, and was pretty much self sufficient. A hoot to read too. I use to read his blog all the time.

RE: roof air or basement

Our roof air's are horribly noisy, especially if I open the main vent (bypasses the ducting) Generally at night, we'll run the front only and let the ducts feed air to the bedroom, then we don't have to hear it. I've heard common basement a/c's used in class A's are obsolete and very hard to get parts and repairs for. Far as I know, Winniebago/Itasca was the only mainstream manufacturer to use them. (note I'm not talking buses here, just regular class A's) I think even two million dollar Prevosts have roof air. Four or five of them.

RE: Help-need a hobby!

I hated everything about dancing. I danced twice in my life. Once at a prom and the other at our wedding and that was over thirty years ago. We started taking ballroom dance lessons for about ten months now. I'm hooked. We have made some great friends and I can't explain it but it put some spice back into us for a lack of better words.

RE: It's always something

It sounds like we were pretty lucky with our old 1994 PaceArrow that we had for 14 years. If I didn't do all the chassis work(bell cranks,inner&outter tie rods,drag link,Henderson super steer rear trac bar,larger ipd front sway bar with poly bushings front and rear,Henderson super steer front coil springs,Koni shocks,steering dampner)luckily I did all work myself. We maybe had $3000.00 in repairs in the 14 years. Rust in fuel tank that we had re lined and while I had tank out replaced fuel pump,altenator,headers.water heater limit switches some bulbs and faucet washers.

RE: Class A motor home steering stabilizer

Mine tracks straight and 18 wheelers have little to no affect. I have a Blue Ox Tru Center sitting in a box waiting for me to install. I purchased it for peace of mind in case of a tire blow out and like it is adjustable on the fly.

RE: Set up Order

Is there a preferred order when setting up? First thing I do is grab a cold beer.

RE: Which class a motorhome came with a dt466 engine?

There are lots of bargain priced DP's with older engine technology. Have you considered a Bluebird. Lots of nice units under $20,000. But I really don't think you will find a DP with that IH engine. Besides there are other considerations like build quality and layout. Finding one with your desired engine but nothing else is not the answer. Moisheh ...and the BB will have leaky/smoking 6v or 8v92's

RE: Protecting your campsite privacy

If you want TWO empty sites on either side, leave one of these on the picnic table: http://cdn.roland.com/assets/images/products/gallery/fr-7x_top_gal.jpg width=640 I have one of these from my youth and can still play it! Photo circa 1955! http://www.irv2.com/attachments/photopost/data/500/AccordianTom2sm.jpg My neighbor plays one and use to bring it when we camped with the Boy Scouts. We use to have a blast. My sister also played one when she was younger.

RE: Which class a motorhome came with a dt466 engine?

DT 466, is that a inline 6 or the Ford V8 built by International? It's the International inline 6 (Navistar MaxxForce DT: 7.6 L wet-sleeve diesel.) A Detroit Deisel 40 series was built by International, and is essentially the same motor, so I'd be ok with one of those too. I want one for their reliability more than their power. It's an older model, yes, but my budget won't allow for newer high hp models. It should be plenty powerful for my needs. I value long-term reliability over hp specs. When I get parts for mine I tell them it's a DT 530

RE: Which class a motorhome came with a dt466 engine?

I have a series 40 in mine. It's basically the same as the 466. Since you said "basically", not identically the same you are correct as many parts can be exchanged, but not the crank or bearings. DD got more HP out of their version When I needed a fuel check valve from what the parts guy at international told me is that the series 40 is a international 530 that detroit put their electronics on it and call it a series 40. I really don't know anything about them. Looks like a bunch of parts are the same for the 466 and 530. But as you point out not all. Hope I never need to find out lol.

Replaced a couple glow plug relays and a gem module that I did have to have the dealer program. I have been running a TS chip for over 70k miles with a bunch of other goodies. I think it like to get beat on. We pulled a 5er for a few years also.
