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.

RE: Minimum door height required for RV storage garage

I would go 16 ft ceiling 14ft. door height and 16 ft wide inside. The door width would be 12 wide. You can get away with 10 ft but it is easy to catch a mirror. This will give you enough room to open storage doors and perform other tasks. Good luck I am envious.

RE: How not to drive a motorhome

You got to admit this thread has taken a better turn. Almost spit my coffee on the crow and the fence post theory!

RE: How not to drive a motorhome

Also very bigoted but you never noticed that. Well, in my defense I confine my bigotry to those with money and power. Such as Canadians with the means to infest the southern United States in big RVs while trying to chisel us by passing off their funny coins as real money. Not to mention infecting us with Rush, Triumph and April Wine. That's funny I see alot of Americans on our side of the border and they travel all over the world for that matter. They probably are not a s small minded as yourself.

RE: How not to drive a motorhome

Proponents of licensing seem to forget that the stupid driver in question is from Canada. Explain to me how forcing US drivers to get licensed will fix this particular problem. Maybe if we build a wall... I far prefer Mexicans to Canadians, who throw nickels around like manhole covers and this time of year jam every happy hour and all you can eat buffet in Florida. That is good!! You probably have more Mexicans in the U.S. than Canadians. I see idiot drivers on both sides of the border no matter what province or state they are from.

RE: New Driver

You may find that if it is equipped with air brakes you will find that they work a little different than juice brakes. If you read up on air brake systems and how they work it may be helpful especially if a problem arises like mentioned above. Tail swing accidents mentioned above usually happens in tight quarters like filling stations. Good luck and enjoy your new coach.

RE: Longest trailer ever seen

When your rig breaks down and you call for a tow, just hope that doesn't show up. I can't imagine what that setup gets per hour. I have seen similar rigs like that hauling massive pieces of structure up to the oil sands in Northern Alberta.
