RE: Windshield seal

Spray foam and Eternabond?

RE: Windshield seal

Any chance the structure is rusted out? I haven't read of many lately but it used to be a common Winnie issue. If it is you'd be better off removing the windshield and getting it fixed properly. There has to be a reason for the issue you're having.

RE: Mecerdes Diesel

From memory here that engine wasn't well received. The brand itself is also one you may want to research. Not a lot of love for the Alpha.

RE: Bounder with Atwood jacks

At a national rally years ago the Atwood factory guys were making courtesy calls. We happened to be the last scheduled call of the day. After they were done we offered them a cold beverage. After a couple of those the guy went to his service truck and loaded me up with a bunch of parts. Over the years I've used a bunch and mailed some out to other people in need. Gears and pins were the most popular, I changed a clutch on one jack once too. I like the concept of the electric jacks, I just wish they were more robust.

RE: Bounder with Atwood jacks

My Atwood electric jacks still work fine but I do have a brake on one front jack that does not hold like it use to, can I still get the brake kit ?, would not want to replace the whole system for a simple repair.. I've had them apart a bunch, they're a screw jack, no real brake in them. They screw up and down. I'm trying to think how one could not hold once it's screwed into place. I know when the pin holding the gear breaks they'll drop and won't retract. With that said, ours are the original version. I know the second version counted rotations too plus pulling the amp draw (?) so maybe it's different somehow??? It's still a screw jack so I can't imagine how. Maybe Doug can shed some light on this?

RE: 1984 Revcon!!!!! Garbage or decent?

$1900? Any chance you hace a link or pictures? That's not much $$$, might be a fun project.

RE: Bounder with Atwood jacks

The short version is yes, thats pretty much accurate. Lippert owns what's left of them but support for those jacks isn't strong. Some (many?) have changed them out for hydraulic jacks. We're currently in the same boat with ours. I have a few parts left and even carry a spare jack. I keep procrastinating and haven't made the move to hydraulics yet. I'm sure someday in the near future I'll wish I had done something sooner.

RE: I’m Back!

Jim - where they heck have you been? And how the heck have you been? Not many of us old timers still around. Still driving the Winnie?

RE: Coach Batteries

http://www.rvnetwork.com/topic/126519-mineral-oil-in-batteries/ https://www.thermoil.com/battery-de-mister-vs-mineral-oil/ I tried it many years ago and the battery did not last any longer, but I am only one person. I'm not saying they'll last any longer - I doubt they will, the last set lasted 9 years. What the mineral oil has done is greatly reduce my needed maintenance and all of the out-gassing corrosion.

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

Yep. The energy reading is the amount of energy used over time. It's a little like the electric meter on your house. It keeps track of how much total energy has been used, until it is re-zero'd. That's another reason why this is a great little device. If you have this in line to something that uses energy as a varying rate during a, (say 24 hour time frame), you can get an average hourly rate for the day. The 14 wh shown in the lower right corner, was all the energy used since I plugged it in and was playing with the different lights as well as the fan I had hooked up for a little while. Having the numbers over time gives a great way to tell how much solar would be needed on a daily basis. Same with using a Kill A Watt meter with 120v ac electric. Clear as mud? Very clear. I own a Kill-A-Watt and I understand electricity. :W

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

Next is the single led bulb. First pic is with switch after the amp meter. Second pic is the switch before the amp meter. http://paddleupstream.com/mohorebuild/ledbulb.jpg http://paddleupstream.com/mohorebuild/ledbulb7.jpg It looks like the switch doesn't use much energy. Can you explain why the energy reading is higher when the others are the same? Just wondering. As far as the beer - we'll call it a draw. Stop by tonight and I'll buy you a couple.

RE: Coach Batteries

We use golf cart batteries and I do the mineral oil trick. Virtually zero out-gassing corrosion and I've added water once in... I think we're into our 3rd year now. I'll have to look at up and confirm. ***Update*** I just looked it up, I installed the batteries in July of 2016. They're doing even better than I was thinking they were. On a side note, man I getting old! I can't believe how fast time is going by.

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

Now do that test again except put your meter between the battery and the box. I'd be interested to see how much juice the box is eating. I'd bet a cold beer it doesn't run for free. :W And I like beer, so even if I'm wrong I still win. :B

RE: Entegra or newmar

With Thor now owning Entegra it would intensify my interest and choice of a Newmar product Winnie owns Newmar now. Fairly old news, but yes. Hopefully they don't screw it up.

RE: Dash heat & defrost diesel pusher?

Ours works great. We also have overhead fans that blow directly on the windshield.

RE: Interesting video

More torque at a lower RPM will be the engines best point at first.

RE: LEDs Replacement for Flourscent

What powers the under cabinet lights? Do they have one of those cheap LED remote control units or are they hard wired somehow to a switch? A hard wired dimmable LED driver. The summer switch is wall mounted right next to the regular canned light switch. I didn't do this in the camper, those aren't dimmable.

RE: Interesting video

Super! I'll bet a new 7.3 with a full banks power pack and 5 start tune would beat your V10 by at least 3 or 4 seconds too. Whats the point? The video is showing whats available today and some of the improvements that have been done. What happened 12 years ago really isn't relevant to whats offered today. If they were both available today then sure, but the old V10 is gone.
