RE: Easy Automatic headlight modification

Of course paying attention is the easiest way to reduce accidents! I still don’t understand why we need lights on to see a car during the day? I see cars without headlights on just as well as cars with lights on. Open your eyes! There are amazing things all around us! :@ When you are driving a semi or rv it is sometimes hard to spot a car especially if it is a lighter colored vehicle and it is raining and there is lots of spray being kicked up. Also blinding sunlight can be a factor. There is also the guy that isn't paying close attention that it may make a difference You may see everyone else but do they see you!

RE: Older DP's with drum brakes

I have driven trucks for over 35 years and all had drum brakes. I never had a problem with wet brakes and I live on the coast in B.C. where we get alot of rain. I hauled logs on very steep mountain roads and we used to run water to every brake drum to keep them cool. Never a problem.

RE: Fuel filters

On the old diesel engines many years ago we would throw a quart of atf in the fuel tank every once in awhile and it acted like a fuel conditioner. If you were out somewhere and had to change a filter we would fill it with atf or even engine oil in order to keep the prime only because there was no fuel to put in there. Fast forward to the newer engines it is not recommended.

RE: Do lighter color 2003-2008 coaches also have paint checking?

I had an 01 HR Imperial that most of it was dark blue and it was crazed. I have seen even older ones with crazing on the dark colors.

RE: problems

They sure do snap closed fast. Been there too. I just pulled mine manually. Just flip the lock so when you pull it out it latches. I then pulled out some on one side and then the other until it was out far enough to find the strap.

RE: Thinking out Loud

We had fifth wheels for a few years and then went to a D.P. Last spring we sold the D.P. and went back to an older but nice fifth wheel. After 2 trips last summer we are now negotiating a deal on another D.P. The DW missed the handy on the fly bathroom breaks, having everything warm when we shut down for the day and not having to go back and forth to the truck. A couple of sessions at the laundromat also swayed the decision.

RE: Busted shock absorber mount, Safe to Drive home

When driving down the road the airbags support the load not the shocks. shocks just dampen the ride. Like said you will be fine to drive it that way. I had air leveling on my Imperial and Billsten shocks and never had a problem no matter how low I let it go. There must be a difference in the Koni shocks.

RE: Buying a Canadian regsitered motorhome in the USA

In Canada(at least B.C. and Alberta) there will be a registration form. There is a portion that is torn off and given to the purchaser as proof of ownership. That with a bill of sale should be all you need at the border. You would have to get a trip permit and insurance. I am currently looking at motorhomes in the U.S. so I have checked with both border offices. If it was registered in the U.S. the U.S. customs want to review the title and you will need an export number. I am not sure how that would be with it being Canadian registered but I would check with them to be sure.

RE: Air leak

Most times if you run the engine until the air dryer kicks off and you have full pressure, you can shut the engine off and you should have plenty of time to find a leak. Just be careful about going under the coach as the air leaks down the coach can settle and you can be severely injured or worse. Make sure it it properly supported.

RE: Tires

I went to the Houston Space Center where they have the Space Shuttle. It has Michelin tires on it. Nuff said. Agreed! Seeing as NASA has a reputation of paying rediculious money for standard quality stuff ($10,000 toilet seat anyone?) obviously they have proven Michelin is the best choice if you have money to burn. :B For those of us who actually have to make good financial decisions and live within a budget there are probably better choices. :W Well said! Michelin is only the best because Michelin says so. I have worn out countless sets of tires over the years and had good success with Michelin. I have had as good as success with other brands for alot less money. nuff said.

RE: Air brake questions?

It could just be a brake adjustment problem. Sometimes auto slack adjusters start to fail due to age or lack of grease. There also could be a faulty air valve. I would have it looked at by a truck shop or professional hd mechanic.
