RE: Air Bag Installation Assistance

Glad you have a handle on things. We've all been there before. :B

RE: Air Bag Installation Assistance

It looks like violet and tan wires controls the rear block and orange and blue wires for the front block. That is why they label two different wheels on the block for each wire. For instance if you are wiring the rear block for the RR air bag it would be controlled by the violet wire. If that same block was used for the front air bags then it would be the blue wire for the RF.

Maybe these drawings will help: Firestone instructions

RE: Increase Ground Clearance for Driveway

Pour concrete in to the dip and eliminate the low spot permanently might be the least expensive and best solution.

RE: Oldest tires on a MH still running?

Tires being used on a regular basis will last longer, even if the mileage is not a lot.

RE: What is this thing?

With Monaco there is usually only one of those remote sensors if you have 2 AC units or two if you have 3 AC units. The thermostat sensor for the other AC unit is the thermostat itself.

RE: What is this thing?

Monaco uses a sensor for the second AC unit that is usually hidden behind a white grill type of cover. If you take off the cover you will see a small white bulb on the end of the wire.

RE: Can i buy this stuff ("counter molding")?

If you cut all of that plastic off it is very easy to get a great looking caulking joint. Just clean all surfaces very well with alcohol and use the blue painters tape and run a strip of tape about 1/4"-3/8" away from the joint on both the wall and the counter top. I would use a good quality white or ivory silicone caulking to fill the joint with caulk. After you fill the joint you then use your finger or a curved plastic piece to shape the caulking joint so that it looks even and neat. When done you pull off the tape and let it cure and it will be a permanent repair.

RE: Gas vs Diesel

So you have no answer for what a Diesel engine in a DP costs to repair from a BUTCHERED oil change in your fictitious world? :B

RE: Gas vs Diesel

I am over 90,000 miles on my gasser and do not use any oil. The manufacturer says I should get 250,000 miles from the engine so when can I expect this "predictable" failure? :B Didn't you answer your own question? Coming to pricing, I heard about gassers owners who had to spend $3000 after butchered oil change. I rebuild radiator on Prevost for $2500, so who is giving the ****? You are reaching. :B So if someone BUTCHERED the oil change on a Diesel, what is the cost? Do a search for past radiator replacements on this forum. . I could care less what you charge. If someone has a problem on the road, they pay what that mechanic charges them.

RE: Gas vs Diesel

but bottom line is that with diesel you have to have really bad luck to need major repair, when with gasser it is very predictable. Now there is a load of ****. Let's see, with your extensive knowledge tell us all exactly when each gasser coach will fail, since it is so predictable. On this forum I have read about DP owners having $5000-$7000 repair costs from something as simple as a corroded radiator. Then there is the cost of an alternator or fuel pump failure. I know, just bad luck I guess. I am over 90,000 miles on my gasser and do not use any oil. The manufacturer says I should get 250,000 miles from the engine so when can I expect this "predictable" failure? :B

RE: Prevost engine swap possible?

Personally I would contact Prevost directly. I'm sure that they can be of help. Prevost chassis buses are used in fleet applications and they are designed for major repairs and engine swaps with a minimum amount of downtime, if you have the right equipment. You should be able to find a used engine out of a wrecked chassis.

RE: Over heating

It is probably the Hayden 2834 heavy duty fan clutch.

RE: Tire alignment

Do any of your tires show any unusual wear? If not, forget the alignment. If they do show unusual wear, go for the four wheel thrust angle alignment, which for $500, is what I think they are providing. If the shop can't do a four wheel alignment go to a place that can rather than having just the front end aligned at a high price.

RE: Gas vs Diesel

There is no way to tell which would be the best buy. Things break and the older a vehicle, the more chance things may break. They may look great but depending on how they were maintained, they all may have a hidden, expensive, problem. Check all service records. Inspect the radiators for corrosion. Diesel engines last a long time but their expensive accessories do not. Do you want to sleep on and sit on 11 year old mattresses and furniture? Check out everything or, if you are not qualified, bring in an expert.

RE: Engine replacement

Depending on the mileage, you may have a problem that does not require an engine replacement. A valve seal problem can cause an excessive amount of oil burning as well as a few other things. The shop should do a complete inspection of the engine rather than just say you need a new engine and ask you for a blank check. You may only need to remove the heads and have then rebuilt. You may also have some failed gaskets and seals that need replaced. All of those are a lot cheaper, and more probable, than a worn out engine.

RE: I can't imagine this many cables (UPDATED)

If you have an HD satellite box, the cables to the TV will have to be HDMI instead of coax. The same goes for a DVD player if it is HD.

I know nothing about this place but maybe they can help you. Windshield service

RE: Diesel or Gas? Resale value

I think a 5th Wheel trailer and a newer model pick-up is going to be the best choice for a concert tour. I have to assume that your concerts are scheduled in advance so it is imperative that you get there on time or incur some serious penalties. A new truck may still be under warranty and can still allow you to go ahead if the trailer has a problem. With the three of you, a crew cab should provide on the road comfort as well as the reliability that you need. ANY class A in that price range, even with an inspection, will not be as reliable as a late model pick-up truck.

RE: I can't imagine this many cables (UPDATED)

You may have cables for a recorder, amplifier, satellite box, as well as a switchable entertainment center that is used to route the signal to different areas of the coach. This takes a lot of input/output cables.
