early 90's C on a Ford e350 7.5l V8

I'm thinking of buying an old class c with an early 90's Ford chassis. I've been rving for 25 years and am pretty comfortable fixing and maintaining the house stuff but not to sure about the chassis. Looking for suggestions on how to assess and maintain and older rig like that. thanks!

RE: Banging when turning

did you add a stiffer anti-sway bar? maybe the bushings are causing it

RE: Necessity of a spare?

do you need a spare? no should you get one? depends.... I've been RVing for 24 years and used my spare twice. Glad I had it on hand. Once was July 4 th in the afternoon and I have this "not available" XRV size. Other time was nail found at departure tire pressure check. quick change and on my way. if you have a spare, do have an ERS that will change it for you if you don't have a spare, do have an ERS that will find one for you and be prepared to "possibly" wait longer and pay more....possibly is there a right or wrong answer? no (unless you didn't get ERS!!!):B

RE: Tiny House Movement

Excuse my language, but tiny homes are stupid. You watch the shows and they all talk about seeing the country. Then none of them have the means to pull the rig so they hire it out. During the move they sweat bullets to go 5-10 miles. Then the neat thing is a loft bedroom in them. Put's the tiny home over 14 feet high. Good luck going down the road with that height. None of them have tanks so FHU is a must. None of them have slides so you're stuck on livable square feet. What really makes me laugh is when they come in around $60,000 for 300 square feet. That's $2,000/ foot with no land, and cheap construction to boot. Sorry, that's just dumb in my book. I guess being a hipster and looking smart, doesn't mean you are. go to the back of the class....it's $200/sq ft but I agree with the rest.....

RE: How can a 12vdc light cut off my A/C unit?

weird problems like that turn out to be ground problems I'm no electrician myself, but every time I've had something screwy like this with anything electrical is has always been a ground problem. Weird how that works. if your charger died and your batteries are low, turning on a light could be enough to lower your battery voltage below the operating level your thermostat requires, thus no AC. try putting a charge (with an external charger) on the batteries overnight and then run the AC and lights, if your problem goes away, it was caused by a kaput charger and low battery charge.

RE: Onan 5500 gummed - fixed!

Thanks for the report. Don't forget to change the fuel filter. Where is the fuel filter? and why does my operation manual say it has to be replaced by an Onan mechanic??? ok, found it in the parts diagram, underneath....

Onan 5500 gummed - fixed!

I think I dodged a bullet today! My 2010 Onan 5500 HGJAB with 1000 hours finally got the often talked about dreaded gum up :( It would start but under load it coughed, spit, and died). It has worked flawlessly for 5 years, probably cause I used it a lot. This is the first summer I left it in the Florida heat unattended for 3 months. I took the carb off and hit it inside and out with Gunk carb cleaner. I sprayed every orifice I could find. I opened the bowl drain and half filled the bowl and tightened the drain screw. I reattached the carb and before attaching the fuel line, filled it with an ounce of sea foam. When it was all back together I hit the prime button for a while to force the pure sea foam into the carb. I let is soak for a few hours and then started it up. Was a little rough at first and then smoothed out. Turned on one AC for 5 minutes and then the second AC was turned on. She's purring now! From all the horror stories I've read about the Onan 5500 I feel I cheated death (of a carburetor)! :)

RE: Cleaning the Class A while using it?

I usually wash the bugs off the front quickly, every time I ask the office, they say ok to just wash the bugs off...... I wait to do a full wash at my destination.

RE: Instead of the recliner...

I don't know how the Fiesta attached the chair, but in our Winnebago the chair uses a bolt that is mounted under the floor. I've used the bolt hole to attach an eye bolt that I use a ratchet strap to hold a cooler. You might probe around for such a hole as it gives you more options. X2!

RE: Dog urinating and defecating on your site while owners watch

At Slough Crek in Yellowstone, I was walking the dog, which I pick up after, one morning I saw a pronghorn, the next a bison and the third a black bear. No one picked up after them as they walked through my campsite. If I follow that line of reasoning, I should be able to take a dump on your campsite!

RE: Dog urinating and defecating on your site while owners watch

We were eating breakfast outside on our site while a lady walked up and relieved bother of her dogs in front of us. Nice ambiance! I wish it were legal for humans to do the same, I'd follow them home and return the favor!
