RE: Seabreeze Ford v10 vs. WorkHorse

The brake recall is only relevant if it has a W series chassis . WRONG. Just having a W does NOT mean it had the brake problem. W24 had different brake system. Many other vehicles had the Bosch brake system but it was the lack of use and periods of non-use that were a cause of the brake problem for RV owners. After the recall mine was perfect.

RE: Water in tire? YES, I said "IN" the tire.

I remember they used milk in the tire. It would harden and stay for the winter. They had excess milk many times.

RE: Seabreeze Ford v10 vs. WorkHorse

Workhorse web site will tell if the recall was done. You need the VIN to check. The new calipers were silver colored but that may have changed over the years of use.

RE: Front and Rear Caps

If that is your front fiberglass cap I would say it looks like there is paint wearing off. That looks like primer showing through.

RE: Costco Is Now Carrying Diesel

Here in W. Michigan the 2 Costco have easy access to the pumps but the one closest to Holland usually has the highest prices in the area. They don't have lines very often. When I travel Costco & Sam's club are my first choices.

RE: replacing keys

In storage my keys got misplaced one time. I went to the Fleetwood dealer and got a new key from their drawer. They were all the same for the compartments.

RE: Used RV under $20,000

Should he avoid a Workhorse chassis? Why would you want to avoid a Workhorse chassis? I was under the impression they were not well supported anymore. PPL has a nice Safari Trek in his price range on a Workhorse and recall past Workhorse discussions. I'm not saying this Trek would be a good FT candidate but it got me thinking. He claims to be mechanically deficient so I was thinking of directing him away from potential issues. He is in the 12yr+ range. What about the plug spitting 460's? It wasn't the 460 that spit out the plugs. It was the early V10s that didn't have enough threads and had to be tightened properly to stay in place.

RE: Used RV under $20,000

Should he avoid a Workhorse chassis? Why would you want to avoid a Workhorse chassis? They ride better than ford from the same years, give slightly better mileage, and have a better transmission. Workhorse is starting to build RV chassis again.

RE: RVing with Spinal Stenosis

I had L3,4,5 fused for stenosis about 5 years ago. The surgeon said he would cure all my pain. I said I had no pain, only weakness in the legs. After the surgery I still have no pain and still have weakness in my legs. Fortunately I have no pain driving. I had to get rid of my Mountain Aire because of the 6 steps to get in. I pick up the GMC on Sat. and the 1 step was easy for me when I looked at it.

RE: 1997 America Dream / Driver's side Electric Window

When I worked at Burroughs Corp. (1958-61) I serviced bookkeeping machines. The time allowed for one repair was ridiculously short. I went to Church with the man who had written the book and asked him how it could be done so fast when it took more time that that to get the carriage & case off. His reply was "their machines didn't have those parts on when they were timing them" I think he may work for Fleetwood now. I would suggest NAPA with their books of power window pictures. I would be willing to bet Fleetwood used an existing part there.

RE: Microwave and front TV zapped?

How long had you been using the 50 amp outlet at home? How was it wired? Is it possible it was wired as a 220V outlet? It wouldn't be the first time for that to happen on this forum.

RE: Workhorse to Re-enter Class A Chassis Market

I had a W22 in my Mountain Aire 3778 and it was very quiet going down the road. The coach builder has a lot to do with soundproofing their coach. This shows what new ownership can do for a chassis maker.

RE: New Foundland

Trip is cancelled. I could not get ferry res. when needed and I now own a 26' GMC MH in addition to having a Roadtrek for sale.

RE: Just made the plunge

We always went to Algonac state park with every new RV because it was close to where we lived at the time. That is a great idea on the driveway. Been RVing since 1969 and never used the CG facilities. We used the self contained for everything. Dumping is nothing special when done properly. Dump black tank first and then the grey to flush the hose. Very simple job when done right. I always do use rubber gloves at the dump station.

RE: learn me about tires

Go North. Even with the exchange rate prices are lower in Michigan. We have only 6% tax in Mich compared to your 15%. That will help on the exchange rate. I would get the heaviest duty tire possible for your weight. I was in Windsor last Friday.

RE: Water Regulaters in Motor Home

I was at a CG a few years back, and before I bought a regulator, that had water running out the MH when we got back. They had over 100 PSI and mine wasn't the only one with water running out.

RE: Will Any Manual Tranny Work?

Now that we've moved from a trailer to our Class A, we're thinking about what kind of Toad we'd like to get. It seems like more and more new automatic tranny cars can't be towed flat, so we're thinking about getting something with a manual transmission. It wouldn't be a daily driver, so we're not concerned about having to shift in high-traffic areas. Are all manual transmission cars able to be towed flat? Thanks! I think there are many more automatics that are towable now than ever before. Most Fords, other than the Escape are towable, Lincoln, many GM vehicles, some Jeeps. I know I didn't mention any foreign cars but I grew up in Detroit and to me they don't count.

RE: looking for reasonable camping in Savannah, Ga

We stayed on Tybee Island. It was a couple years ago, River's End RV Park.

RE: SE Financial RV Financing Experiences (or other)

Until you come up with a definite RV to purchase they can't give accurate info either. Rates will be different on a 2005 than a 2007. The type of MH will make a difference and the term will also vary by what you are purchasing.

RE: Bonehead move yesterday

I sold my Mountain Aire 2 weeks ago. I normally store it in a barn but had moved it to my daughter's place to remove all my "stuff". As I was pulling out for it's last drive I clipped a tree branch that caved in the top corner molding to the tune of $500.
