RE: King air

Follow the link and find out for yourself. I did, there was nothing to see. Pretty obvious at this point you simply have nothing useful to add. Time to move on.

RE: King air

You should read the blog at the Outsideourbubble.com website and try to correlate that with your intentions of buying a King Aire. You would think that, right? Not necessarily so! Bill, You need to help us out here, not do the innuendo stuff. In an effort to actually help the OP, I went to the blog you listed, search both Newmar and Kind Aire, and all I could come up with was; If you want to really be able to do some custom work, seek out Newmar, however, for us, their floor plans had kitchens and bathrooms that were too small. Maybe you're confused with the Winnebago they ordered and refused delivery of due to numerous quality issues??? In any case, if you have something to say, say it. As it is we have no idea what you're talking about. :R

RE: How much is too much? Electrical question.

Please let us know; 1. If you gave an inverter 2. If you do, how big is it? 3. How many coach batteries do you have? With that info we can give you a much better answer.

RE: Tires

On line check Simpletire.com. As to the brand, my opinion is since you already own Michelins anything you choose should be an upgrade. :B I think you'll also find the 235/80-22.5 is a Michelin only size. If you check around you'll find many have switched to a different but similar size with good results.

RE: Onan Marquis 7000 - No Output Power

Check the brushes. Years ago friends had one that would run but no output. We took it out and dropped it in my garage. Found one brush cracked. $26.00 later it was working as advertised.

RE: Diesel Pusher, side vs rear mount radiator

We've had both, I prefer the side radiator for the access. With that said, with what you're looking to do, I wouldn't be afraid of rear radiator at all.

RE: Tool chest in MHbasement

I recently added this kit from Harbor Freight to our MH. I have the same kit in my big garage and just bought another for our small garage. For $150.00 w/ coupon it's a deal. I should have done this years ago.

RE: Interesting article: Tesla Semi Electric Motorhome.

I can't get on the electric vehicle bandwagon. In the little research I've done they aren't really as eco friendly as they would have you think. To manufacture - especially the batteries - the waste and materials used to make them are pretty caustic and not eco friendly at all. And electricity still has to be produced to charge the car. You've only shifted where the pollution and emissions comes from. Careful now - you're letting the facts get in the way of a good story! Years ago I owned a Ford Focus ST that was a PZEV (partial zero emission vehicle). Going from memory here, so it might be a little skewed but the point is valid; Car & Driver did a test on it at the time and on the bad greenhouse gasses, it produced fewer bad gases per mile than a fully electric vehicle charged off the California grid. While electric may be zero emissions, the plants that produce it aren't.

RE: Interesting article: Tesla Semi Electric Motorhome.

Is this April 1st? Gotta be an April Fools joke. $100,000/year fuel savings, yeah right. We haven't spent $100,000 in fuel in the last decade, probably a lot longer.

RE: Plastic sheeting under shower?

^^^ I'd agree with that.

RE: To DP or not DP

I'll say... I hope the OP got the information they were looking for. I hope no one does something foolish and ends up hurt or worse. This one is done.

RE: To DP or not DP

When you do not know what you are doing, you don't belong under there. But tell me what you could move to cause the jacks to collapse ? Remember the air ride system is already drained, when you raise the coach. so it has been on the jacks for week. and jacks must be selected up electrically to lower the coach. Changing a brake line fitting isn't going to do that. When you don't know the difference between falling off a car lift and a coach on its leveling jacks you shouldn't post. A hose or fitting failure would drop the jacks in a second. My real job is industrial sales, and ANYTHING that you're relying on hydraulics to hold absolutely MUST also be mechanically held before any work is started. Failure to do so is grounds for immediate dismissal in every plant I go in. Now, can we please get this thread back on track. While safety is always a good subject, this thread is about whether to DP or not to DP.

RE: New Ford Engine

I certainly hope they addressed the abysmal handling of the F53 as well as the power! Hopefully they now have independent front suspension as well as an air ride option. I'm sure I can speak for everyone when I say the handling is bad enough that it should've been addressed before the power. While I certainly like the idea of IFS and air ride, I sure wouldn't say our last gasser handled poorly. Also, with as many as there are on the road they can't all be bad or they wouldn't be selling. I think in many cases it's more how the house builder balances weight and chooses specs most so than the chassis itself. 16K to 26K chassis. 19.5 wheels vs 22.5 wheels. 158" to 252" wheelbase. Same chassis design, different options chosen = different results. I tend to agree with you. However Ford is the only chassis builder right now so there is no competition. I would like to see Ram get into the game and offer a superior chassis like I mentioned with a Cummins option up front. Ford needs more than a new engine and trans offering. I mean the F53 was introduced back in he 80’s I think. And other than the brake system is basically still the same. The basic chassis used today was introduced as a 1999 model, well past the 80s. It's been updated a few times since then, although they were evolutionary, certainly not revolutionary. I'd love to see Ram get into it too - they make decent stuff.

RE: To DP or not DP

The only thing I can say is when we were considering our first DP, friends who owned them said '"Do not drive a DP unless you are ready to sign the papers". They were right. :B

RE: New Ford Engine

This seems to be what many are predicting; "This will push the 7.3L V8 estimates to: 482 hp and 557 lb-ft of torque. The 7.3L V8 will make its debut in the 2020 Ford Super Duty (F250 and F350) trucks later this year. The engine will be mated to Ford's new 10-speed automatic transmission".

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

Thats a bummer, I'm glad you're good to go. Let me guess, someone was texting and driving - proven to be far more dangerous than drinking and driving.

RE: Motorhome drinking oil

1/2 qt in 500 miles but how much in 1000 miles? Many engines will use a half at and stay there for many miles. You don't need to add until it gets to "add" our almost. I agree with this. Many times an engine will seek it's own level and stay there for many, many miles.

RE: What is going on!!!!!!!!!

Just drill a 1/8" hole on high point of overflow pipe. Yup. I've done this with every MH we've ever owned. If possible, I extend the height of the overflow with a T first. I put a plug in the top of the T then drill a small hole in that (red arrow). I use the side of the T for the overflow. We've been camping for over 20 years now and this method has always worked. Simple, cheap, effective, and nothing to fail. https://i.imgur.com/qWBGQCJ.jpg
