Where to Find Used RV Appliance Parts

I have a Maytag RV Range Model #CLY2231BDB. It is missing the oven rack. The oven rack is part #74003106. It is no longer available. It's been awhile since I've had to look for such things. I've tried Ebay, and other web shopping searches, Amazon, etc. What are some current web sites to contact for a fair selection of things like used oven racks?

RE: Portable Hitches

And just to kind of re-state what I'm learning is this... I'll need both a hitch and a mounting system. A fold flat ball is a mounting system, that some kinds of fiver hitches can mount to. Or I'd need to replace the trailer pin box with a goose box. In that case a hitch is obtained in the goose box and the mounting system is the hitch too (gooseneck). But another "clean bed" system is the Pullrite Super5th (for my long bed) which is the mount, and it includes the ISR Super rails with removable pins for quick truck camper conversion use. In such a case I'd buy a new Super5th series mount and rails system, and either a new or used fifth wheel hitch with the standard ISR rail attachment capability.

RE: Portable Hitches

Thanks for the excellent info. The truck is a long bed with an extended cab.

Portable Hitches

I'm new to fifth wheel applications. We're looking into one, but want to keep truck bed access for our truck camper at other times. What are my options for removable fifthwheel or lay flat types of hitches? I'm unsure of the pros and cons for a gooseneck hitch or a fifth wheel. We're into a 26-32' likely length with a trailer GVWR of around 7-13K lbs. I suppose that has a bearing on types of hitches to use. Truck is a 2006 Dodge Heavy 2500 with the Cummins diesel. Thanks.

RE: 2003 Forest River Cardinal 29WB

Thank you both. That's good info.

2003 Forest River Cardinal 29WB

We might go look at a 2003 Cardinal 29WB. What kind of input does anyone have on... Forest River quality of build in the early 2000s. Memories and favorite likes or greatest dislikes about that particular, or your own similar sized and floor plan layout, models. It has 2 driver side slides, small in bedroom the width of the bed, and a larger one aft with sofa and table/chairs. Rear recliners. TV area on common wall of bathroom and living area. Kitchen on passanger side. Solid doors for stool and bedroom. We have enough truck and two would use it for longer stays (1-5 weeks) in various places. Thanks in advance.

RE: Jack Failure Disaster

Oh that's fantastic Dan. When I get back on my other computer I'll zip up those other chapters so you'll have a pictorial reference to the text. The one file I sent (Jacks and Tie-downs Chapter) has the details of the grid you mention. Early pictures in the chapter are hard to see it plain, because of the under spray coating on it. Late photos in the chapter show real good detail. I was mistaken before. The grids aren't integral (and hard to remove), I meant the 2x2's method of fastening to the wing board and the camper box board (that right angle) was a major assembly with staples - hard to separate cleanly. Just saying - the grids come in and out easy.

RE: Jack Failure Disaster

Dan your camper looks to be in excellent original condition for the most part. Amazing find, no water damage apparent like in the front cab-over v-wall. Very nice. I like your poster above the sink. I'll have to send you more files. I have that picture in an original sales brochure on pdf. It's too bad the photos all went away (that whole photobucket thing back ago) because the write-up loses a lot without them. I have pdf files on the entire project with pictures I could send you. I think it was in Chapter 3 - Structure, where I described in detail how I beefed up my corners. In the meantime it looks like you are doing under wing mounts, which may be add-ons or may be originals. I'm sure you'll get it how it needs to be. Yes, I still have a set of Safe-T-jacks laying out in the field. I used them once - when we picked up our first (10.5') Travel Queen in the pasture as described. Lil Queeny is our second and an 8'. Those under wing mounted grids have pipes in them to receive the flip-up Safe-T-jacks. The pipe placements in the grids actually set the four jacks for that camper's center of gravity. My 10.5 is in the landfill. It's not easy to take out a grid - they are quite integral to the box and wing framing. Let me know if you want need the entire series with the original pictures. Many chapters were one pdf file, but several of the chapters generated GOBS of pdf files for just the one lengthy chapter. I used this site's print feature. It was a lengthy process, but I got them before Photobucket fully flushed. Good luck!

RE: Jack Failure Disaster

Hi Dan. I hope that file I sent helps, but keep in mind, I rebuilt the camper framing corners (Travel Queen likes yours) into some pretty beefy stuff before I EVER added those through bolts, and interior nuts, and tie-down eye bolts tied in too, and using interior steel custom made brackets and exterior aluminum sheet to sandwich those rebuilt corners. And yes I just LOVE my electric jacks on the corners and have abandoned all interest in the OEM Safe-t-jacks which still lie out in my field. But! If you can forget about using the camper corner (as found original because they are nothing but sketchy 1x2's) do the connection for weight and strength as it looks like you're doing. Use those under wing steel grids! Tie in to 'em! They are the real deal. And your three-jack mounts may well already be tied in to them. And I agree, a tripod style under these (one jack on one side and two on the other) may well be the best balancing act available. Except you already have the new jacks so use them and that Travel Queen 10.5' is heavy! My 8' is heavy enough. But yeah - keep it as level as possible. You'll get the feel on how far at each jack you can go before you continue your circling around the camper to the next. It makes for a good walk. Like I said. I'm now loving my electrics. Good luck. And yes we'd love to see some interior pics!
