RE: 1987 22 ft Chieftan radiator issues

When you call what are you asking for? If you're asking for a motorhome radiator I think you'll continue to come up empty. I'm guessing you have a Chevy chassis - if so try again looking for a Chevy P30 chassis radiator. Also, are you sure it's the radiator or could it just be the hoses?

RE: Long Term Stays

Bruce Brown's advice to relax and stay put during long term stays is probably OK for a diesel rig like his. However, it is not necessarily good advice for a gasser. Letting gas Motorhomes sit for long periods is not good for them. They need to not only be started up, but driven and moved at least every month or two. Reason I say it needs to be driven is, the brakes, tires, axles need to be exercised, too. It would be a good idea on those 'exercise' trips, to put a few gallons of fresh fuel in it, too. Gasoline when it sits for long periods tends to become stale and lead to other issues (especially in a carbureted engine like nearly all gas generator have). If I was staying on a site for long term stay, I'd try to make it a point about once a month to break camp and take the rig for a good 15-20 minute drive. I'd suggest using that time to put some fuel in it, maybe get some LP gas if needed, and run/exercise the generator in that time, too. The generator needs to be exercised, too, to keep fresh fuel going through it. Two of my tractors are a gassers (1957 Allis D17, 1966 Massey 1100), and so is my lawn mower(JD X475) - same advice.

RE: Long Term Stays

I'd park it and enjoy the stay. We park ours in the garage at seasons end (normally mid-September) and fire it back up when the season starts back up again (normally mid-April). We've done it this way since we started this MH deal about 25 years ago and never had an issue. On my farm tractors it's even a longer downtime (up to 10 months), same deal, never been an issue.

RE: Michelin or Bridgestone 245/ 70 19.5

^^^ Depends on where you buy them. We had Bridgestones installed a few years back. The local, independent commercial tire guys bought a truck load on special and passed on the savings. They took our old Michelins in trade (local farmers use them for field trailers), I walked out the door for $1500.00. That was for 6 new Bridgestones installed and balanced. I'm a big fan of checking with the local guys.

RE: Michelin or Bridgestone 245/ 70 19.5

Is there really that much difference per tire . Which one do I choose.At this point in time after doing some research today seems to be a tire shortage in the nation for G& H rated tires IMO, yes. One has a long history of sidewall cracking, unexplained blow-outs (we had one do it in our garage, while parked), and always blaming the customer when something goes wrong. Bridgestone doesn't. :B For my money Michelin would be the absolutely last tire I would chose - ever, but thats just me. There are 10's of thousands of perfectly happy Michelins customers. I just don't happen to be one of them, and I will say they earned it!

RE: Looking to downsize a little - and we went and done it!

Wow! That's a bunch of stuff you've been through - enjoy the new MH!

RE: best way to remover stickers from a 2011 tiffin open road

Trade it? Sorry - not helpful. A LITTLE heat and a plastic razor blade is what I used on my parents Tiffin. It's a tedious job.

RE: Anyone interested in 83 Pace Arrow Tear down and Rebuild?

Quick survey .... Put the walnut on top, or rout the drawer front out, and mount it flush? Whatta ya think? Is this even a question? Let me rephrase... Should I cobb it together or do it right? I will admit, I'm surprised you even needed to ask. Bruce, Bruce, Bruce... You need a little decaf. Lol. Joking, of course. I'm on my second cup of real coffee so far this morning, so maybe? But honestly, I think it'd look pretty amateur and tacky if you just stuck it on the surface and left it. Not to mention all the cr*p that would get caught on the ledge where it sticks out. As unconventional as everything else you've done at least it appears to be quality work. Just tacking that on the front would not be considered quality IMO.

RE: Hankook tires for DP

I could have got them a little cheaper on line but then the hassle of getting them mounted and balanced wasn't worth it. I can always sell the take offs around here but this time sold them where they were taken off---no hassle! We actually enjoyed a tax advantage by trading ours in. NY we pay sales tax on the difference we pay. We saved tax on $900 worth of trade ins.

RE: Hankook tires for DP

Good deal - and another reason to always check with your local tire shop. When I had our Bridgestones installed the dealer took our old tires in trade - he has a good market for them. We have many farms locally and they use them for the field trailers. It's a win for everybody.

RE: stay pluged in or not

Unless we're traveling ours sits in the garage, plugged in, 24/7.

RE: Anyone interested in 83 Pace Arrow Tear down and Rebuild?

That looks good. I'm sure it was addressed somewhere in the last 100 pages or so, but please remind us again where the couch and chairs are going.

RE: Fixed it

Last sentence - a short somewhere? Maybe one you fixed along the way hunting this down and didn't even realize at the time.

RE: Sewer smell

^^^ This. When you open the windows you're sucking the gases through the traps. Leave some water in the sinks and you should be good.

RE: New again, remind me

Avoid any post-2007 diesel. Or find one like ours; built in 2007 as a 2008 model but with a 2006 spec engine. Ours is even pre-ultra low sulphur diesel. My nieces husband is a diesel mechanic, more than once he has said "never get rid of that one". Fortunately after 14 years it still looks, acts, and drives like new.

RE: Gen leaking fuel

X2 and I had one Did you check the fuel hoses and connections? The rubber hoses can rot or wear from rubbing against something. X3. Not on a generator but recently had one go on my lawn tractor.
