oil filter?

New to me 2021 Sunseeker Classic on an E 450 Ford Chassis. This unit has the Ford "Godzilla" V8 engine. Itis getting close to the time to change the oil and filter. Anyone know the filter number for this engine? I use the combination synthetic and petroleum oil blend! Thanks, Bandaid

wing wall repairs

I just got home from having repairs done to my 2021 Sunseeker. Last fall, while washing the unit a piece of metal trim fell off the bottom edge of the passengers side wing wall. I checked the drivers side and it was gone! Doing an investigation, I found both walls badly deteriorated from rot in the plywood backing. After contacting the company and getting an approval to have them do the repairs, the job got done. I was expecting the walls would be replaced as they were originally built. However, the replacement walls are now a composite synthetic material. YEA! No more chance of rot. So far, I am very pleased with the Customer Support given to me at Forest River. Bandaid

RE: Brevard County Florida camping fee changes

When I posted about the increase in the Brevard County Camping fee's. the information I had was in a newspaper report of the County Commissioners meeting last month. To my knowledge, they have not updated the campground websites yet, as the snowbirds are still grandfathered in for this season, as well as those who had made reservations under the old fees. Please, before you flame me on reporting this, check out the County Commissioners minutes. People who were camped at Hammock Landing went to the meeting and voiced their displeasure. The County Commissioners voted in the new rates at either their October, or November meeting.

Brevard County Florida camping fee changes

Hello, Very quietly, Brevard County Commissioners have restructured the camping fees at our County Park campgrounds. This apparently was due to complaints from county residents of not being able to reserve sites during the winter months, because of the extended stay "snowbirds" The result was a raising of the basic camping fees by 200% now being $48. per day for a water and electric site. If you want full hookups, or a water view, you pay a premium fee on top of the daily fee! Also, the length of stay has been dropped from 169 days to 90 days. All in all, this seems a bit excessive and I am a County Resident!. If I am going to have to pay a premium to get a full hookup site, I might as well go to a private campground and have more amenities! Bandaid

Discovered a serious problem

Hello, A year ago my wife and I purchased a 2021 Forest River SunsSeeker Classic, class C camper. It now has 5400 miles on it and is less than two years old. Yesterday, while washing the camper I bumped a piece of trim on the bottom edge of the bulkhead panel between the cab and the camper living area. The trim piece fell off onto the driveway and a bunch of what I thought was sand and dirt came with it. Inspecting the trim piece, it looks as though the factory installed it with one screw. The serious part is that the wood, probably either OSB board, or chipboard, sandwiched between a thick layer of sound deadening foam and the fylon outer skin is wet and rotting! Same thing on the drivers side and in that case, the trim piece is laying along the side of the road someplace! I'm wondering. Have others had this problem with not only Forest River products, but other class C's. If so, what have you done to fix the issue, DIY, or was it taken to an RV body shop? Bandaid

RE: headed to Myrtle Beach

I am very familiar with the Myrtle Beach area, although it has seen massive growth over the past few years. My wife and I volunteered at Huntington Beach tayte ark for five years after I retired. Loved the area and especially the seafood restaurants. Really, that is the main reason we are going there this next month! We will be staying at Pirateland, as we like the south end of the strip and are most familiar with it. The last time we drove up 17, there was a lot of construction south of Charleston. I think it was a major paving project. Yes, 95 can be a nightmare in places. Thanks for your info, Bandaid

RE: Where to get Replacement Wheel Bearings -Old Camper

I have had good luck with NAPA. If you remove your old bearings and seal, there are numbers stamped into them. Take a set with you and NAPA can cross reference them. They should not be hard to get. Bandaid

headed to Myrtle Beach

Next month we are heading to Myrtle Beach, from Melbourne Florida. I don't expect any problems on 1-95, other than the usual traffic, but I am wondering about HWY 17. Anyone have any input on construction on that route? Bandaid

jackknife sofa removal

I am getting ready to have optional factory theater seat recliners installed in my 2021 Sunseeker Classic, by Forest River. Presently, the unit has a jackknife sofa where the theater seats will be. I want to remove the sofa before the new seats are installed, mostly to save installation time, as the installing dealer get $174 per hour shop rate. I am a hand guy, with lots of tools and automotive experience, so I am pretty sure I can handle removal of the old sofa. However, has anyone else with a class C done a removal like this? Is the sofa taken out in one piece, or is best to disassemble it and remove it in pieces? I do plan to advertise the couch and recover some money, as it is in excellent condition. Thanks, Bandaid

RE: New Ford V8

Hi All, Just had my 2860 Sunseeker at a HD tire shop this past week. Nope, it was not the ball joints and the unit has just over 5000 miles on it, ( Ford does not put zerk fittings in the ball joints so there is no way to grease them ). Ford puts in a "non-adjustable splined alignment bushing" which is set to less than one degree of caster from the factory! In my case, the front wheels were also slightly toed out and between the two of these issues, this camper was a beast to drive. The bushings have been replaced with aftermarket adjustable bushings and the caster reset to about +5 degree's. Also, the toe was corrected. What a difference in the way this unit handles! It no longer wanders all over the road! I am looking forward to getting out on the interstate and seeing what the handling improvement is at highway speeds above 50, which is what I was driving on the way home. The improvement in handling was very much improved at that speed and I expect it will not regress at any higher speed. Regarding the V8. Our unit has the V8 and it is a 2021. On a 1400 mile round trip, prior to having the alignment fixed, we got an onboard computer average of 9.2 MPG. We are not towing anything yet, but will be in the future at some point. Bandaid
