RE: DP weird design "feature"?

One of the reason I refer to 12VDC and the life blood on a rig. You can get by without 120VAC but not so much without 12VDC.

RE: Front grill filter

The grill in my rig is a 1/2 square grid that will whistle at around 50 MPH. The fix was to disrupt the air flow thru the grill with window screen material. As an added bonus I have yet to need to clean the insect carcasses out of the radiator sandwich. No noticeable loss of cooling of the power train or loss of dash A/C performance. https://i.imgur.com/NrwPwiul.jpg

RE: 1967 Travco 270 440 to Cummins 8.3 Upgrade

Interesting idea but it reads like shoe horning a Corvette C4 power train into a 1972 Vega. You'll turn heads but it will have a bit of a Frankenstein Monster if it comes alive. You might be better off finding a late model low mileage GM diesel pickup to use as a donor. And you'll need the entire truck to make the conversion. Fuel system, engine/trans electronics, gauges, antitheft and such. An insurance auction truck that was tee boned would be a perfect donor.

RE: Month/Year of Mfr

Thor built rigs will have a sticker at the driver's left sidewall with on and off assembly line dates. The Ford incomplete vehicle stick has the chassis dates. Personally I wouldn't worry about it. My 2006 was thrown together in the middle of the housing bobble when everyone was flush with cash thru refinancing their homes and buying flashy toys and my build dates seem to confirmation of my speculation. April chassis build completed and the coach leaves the Four Winds factory in June two moths later. Even being a repo my rig has been pretty easy to maintain and has never had me headed home early. My one break down I fixed the next day in the driveway. https://i.imgur.com/dJhJUmKl.jpg https://i.imgur.com/QQWSmkbl.jpg

RE: F53 Hitch update.

,,, The body builders always seem to install a generic #5000 hitch, even if the capacity is higher. They do that because if they put a 10K hitch on a coach that can't tow that much weight someone, actually may someones, will attempt to tow 10K because that's the number on the hitch so that must be the limit for the coach.

RE: Floor Wax - ZEP

More than likely the yellowing is from sun exposure and the normal aging of the fiberglass. I stiped off a sun stroked black graphic several years before I started using Zep and there was a stark white shadow where the graphic used to be.

RE: 2004 Class A gasser

Both rigs will get you and all the stuff you want to bring along (within the listed weight limits), to any camping spot in North America that can be access on improved roads (as in paved or graded). More than likely the house will die from water damage long before a chassis related failure that ends the service life. Choose the coach with the floor plan that fits you daily camping routine first and the chassis second.

RE: Replaced "Kingdom", any value?

I had a older dead Wingard roof model. Gave it to a Ham Radio guy that had a few ideas about tracking the moon and bouncing signals or something.

RE: ez pass/toll pass placement on class A

Top center driver's side (split windshield). Been there since 2011 with no violations and I usually hit a toll at least once a year for any number of the bridge tunnels in the Norfolk Virginia area. https://i.imgur.com/Jj2b5xbl.jpg

RE: inverter/charger

That would be dependent on if the house and chassis DC power buses have the capability of being cross connected to support the charging of both. Most rigs, but not all, are set up from the builder to do so. What is the make, model and year of the coach the Magnum MS2000 is installed in?

RE: 2013 Itasca V-10

If the maintenance schedule has been followed there is a strong possibility the chassis will out last the house that is built on it.
