RE: How loud is your onan microlight 2800 in your B?

How do you have it mounted now? Is it on rubber bushings? I'll have to take a look at the install. I believe it was done the same way as a Travato

How loud is your onan microlight 2800 in your B?

I just installed an Onan 2800 microlight in my Promaster B conversion. OMG is it LOUD! I did some research and got a few ideas like resonator and mount points......hope this gets better or I wasted a bag of $$$ :(

RE: length to wheel base ratio

I think it was more of a guideline, not a rule something like >.55 WB/length, higher the better there a lot of other factors, so, just a guideline

BT Cruiser 5210B

Anyone seen and driven a BT Cruiser 5210B? I like the size and the price, the specs are a bit spotty on the Gulf Stream web site. Unfortunately, they are all over 1000 miles from me :( edit: had the wrong model :o

RE: 10' x 10' Canopy : Round Stakes or Weighted Bags to secure?

If you are going to but a hammer, get a short handle one instead of a regular long sledge type. I have a ballpeen one that has about a 1 foot handle, and weighs about 3-4 pounds. It is handy for a lot of things. I use the long nails, and found some of these that just fit the nails. https://d2pbmlo3fglvvr.cloudfront.net/product/full/Z1110vfo5oy.JPG height=200 I use those to, found then for a few bucks each on amazon

RE: Spare Tire Carrier Project - Under Chassis mount

nice job! I did the same thing with my 22.5 tire on my A I used 1x2 steel tube over the chassis rails I used the same crank mechanism I also secured a 1x2 tube under the tire secured by threaded rod to the 1x2 above, just to be sure that 22.5 don't get away! great minds think alike!

RE: Body roll on a new 2016Winnebago

Just decided to do the CHF front and rear starting with the rear because I plan to have extender plates made for the front. The rear does not change the included angle between the connecting link and the sway bar, at least not much. The front will change this angle a lot unless you extend the links in some way. Either cut the links and weld in an extension or use plates to do the same thing. You will learn all about this by reading the link posted by RDG above. The extender plates start getting discussed on page 270. When I got under the MH yesterday to do the rear I found the clamp that holds the SB to the rear axle was broken and hanging. Have appointment tomorrow to have it repaired under warranty. Looks like it has been broken for a while, I will have to get under there more often. It is a Thor ACE 2015 on a Ford F-53 with 10,000 miles. Jim. or you could just buy extended links for the front

RE: Onan genset stops running--------Fixed

Start by dis-connecting generator fuel line. Mix a gallon of gas with SeaFoam and run generator for 15 minutes from gas can fuel(Have can higher than Genny for gravity feed). Let sit for at least 30 minutes and then restart. It just may be a gunked up carb. Repeat again if necessary. Might have to reset choke. If that doesn't work, then look at other culprits like fuel pump and filter. what do you mean or how do you reset choke? I ask because I had similar problem as the OP, same solution, but my choke has not worked since. It starts fine, runs rough for a few minures, then runs fine. sounds to me like faulty choke
