RE: King air

Follow the link and find out for yourself. I did as well and found really nothing. In fact, one of the MH that parks where we park sold his Newall and got a King Aire and said he likes the King Aire better. He said the Newall continued to have issues the 3 years he owned it, and the King Aire has been flawless (his word, not mine) since he's owned it. Al

RE: Tires

If memory serves, the Toyo 245-75 22.5 have the same height, and about .25" wider. That's what we went with on our MH to replace the Michelins.... Al.

RE: Miles per day.

Man, some of you guys are beasts for driving so far in one day. Back when I was in my 30's I could drive my CAR 12-14 hours, but not anymore (62 now). I have 4 "rules": 1. You are not in a hurry 2. If you get in a hurry refer back to rule #1 3. The 330 rule; no more than 330 miles and get there by 3:30pm 4. Never drive the motor home more than 3 days in a row without a day off These seem to work well. BTW - I'm still working full time and not yet retired. Al

RE: Miles per day.

We use the 330 rule; no more than 330 miles a day, and get to where you're going by 3:30pm... Al

RE: windshield wiper arms

Denso made the wiper arms. They are still in business, as I bought 2 arms a few months ago. www.densoautoparts.com. Al *EDIT* - www.densoheavyduty.com

RE: F-53 tires

I'm having my 4 rears replaced today. Toyo M-154. Already put 2 on the front last year. $1750 mounted, balanced out the door.... Al

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

I had to many big brother moments,after disconnecting my Alexa they stopped :h Yeah...a guy who works for me told me about the time he and his wife were chatting about a new music artist, way outside of the type of music they liked. The next day when they asked Alexa to play their music the first song was from this new artist.... So, not in my house ever..... Al

RE: RV Toilet

We have been doing this for a long time and stopped having problems the first season when we learned .... MORE WATER.... If you think you are using too much use more. The other rules apply like poop, pee, toilet paper and water, nothing else! Use more water!!!! This 100%....MORE WATER!!!!! After I dump each time I put about 10-12 gallons of water in the tank. That will keep "stuff" from hardening and stopping you up. Al

RE: Interesting article: Tesla Semi Electric Motorhome.

I love the self driving aspect. How lovely to start out at night, sleep, and wake up at the destination the next morning. Didn't they use to call that a train? ;) Al

RE: National RV "Club"

I was going to point you to the National RV Owner's forum over on iRV2, but I see you've already started a club sticky there. Indeed...Thanks for the thought. Just trying to see if there is interest. Al

National RV "Club"

As some of you know my wife and I own a 2006 National Seabreeze LX. We have looked around for a National "club" and have only seen one in California. So I would like to ask those National owners - are any of you interested in participating in an Eastern National club? Basically National owners east of the Mississippi. We could maybe hold a rally once or twice a year in a warm location, say the Southeast US. So do we have anyone interested? If so send me a PM and we'll see where it might take us. To the moderators - if this is the wrong place to post this let me know please. Al "FloridaRosebud" Rose

RE: Refrigerator Change in a Class A Gasser

OK, I obviously don't know how to post an image. Can someone help? Al Check the sticky topic in the DIY thread. Super easy! Thanks!!! Al

RE: Refrigerator Change in a Class A Gasser

Ended up with a Frigidaire 10 CF. Shop did a great job. This is the first weekend out with it, and was nice it only took 2 hrs to cool down, and everything is cold even with 95+ degrees outside. https://imgur.com/R0Yr0uj Al

Oh man, that sucks. Glad you're OK. That was your toad as well, right? Al

RE: Looking to upgrade suspension and add a steering stabilizer

I have a 2006 Seabreeze LX on a Ford F53, and have Firestone airbags. I have added a Hellwig rear anti-sway bar (big help) and a roadmaster return to center steering stabilizer and it drives a ton better. The Sumo springs are good - but - the airbags will help you level the MH, which is more important. I am happy with my mods, and can now drive the MH more easily. BTW - tire air pressure is also very important... Al

RE: Campground Breakers - EDITED

(Incidentally, the suggestion that current always goes up when voltage goes down is absolutely incorrect for many loads. Electric motors and motor-driven equipment is a rather complicated case; the current may go up, down, or stay the same, at least within some reasonable range of voltages. If the voltage drops low enough, the current will of necessity go down; otherwise you'd have the air conditioner etc. consuming inifinte current when unplugged with the generator off! For resistance heaters and incandescent lights, the current (and hence power consumed) drops as voltage drops.) In other words, Ohm's Law is not a fact. WOW! I did not know that. Thanks for posting this new relevation! Ohm's law is a description of how many, but certainly not all, things behave electrically. Ideal resistors follow Ohm's law; practical physical resistors (including such things as wires and fuses) come very close indeed to the ideal, over a wide range of voltages and currents. Of course, for things that follow Ohm's law, the current is proportional to the applied voltage, and so goes down as the voltage drops. Things like semiconductors and motors under load and incandescent lights are not ohmic, some very much so, and for them the relation of current to voltage is different and generally more complicated. Ohm's law can still be used in some circumstances as a handy analysis tool, perhaps only under fairly closely defined circumstances. In other words, it's still useful at times to treat such non-ohmic things as their equivalent resistances at some specified operating conditions. I am not an electrical engineer, are you? However, I have several advanced degrees and did do a little study about what you posted, as well as removing a few cob webs from my brain where I did study the science and physics of electricity obtaining an advanced degree, and I cannot support anything you posted. I would appreciate your citing sources so I can better educate myself. Without any citations, I have to assume you are merely an armchair critic without any qualifications. I'm in the same boat as you, however I am an electrical engineer, have my PE in 12 states, have been practicing for 39 years, and have dealt with 100's, if not 1000's of induction motors, and his statements are pretty much all wrong. I decided not to post and see if others stepped up, which they have. Ohms law is not a guide or suggestion, just like a speed limit is not a suggestion. In addition, the power of a motor is P=V*I. No resistance there. In addition, every, and I mean every circuit can be broken down into a Thevenin(sp) equivalent, where Ohms law applies. In fact, I have taught a course on motors, and motor design and maintenance a few years back. So I have a bit of experience here... Al

RE: Newmar Ventana LE Recommended Tire Pressures

The above post is correct other than you should actually try to get each wheel weighed for an accurate determination of tire pressure. If you are just weighing front and rear you can use the Michelin pressure guide but you should add 5# to try to accommodate one side being somewhat heavier than the other. No one on the forum can tell you the correct pressure. No one. You must know the RV weights before making any adjustments. Never exceed the pressure listed on the tire sidewalls and be sure your tires are cold when you set the pressure. This....my tires say 110psi on the sidewall, but my weights gave me 80psi front, 85 rear. MUCH better ride and handling. Al

RE: CAT 3126B

I was born and raised in the north, moved to Georgia and have lived there for thirty years. Language terminology is different in the south In the south if a vehicle won’t crank, it means it won’t start. Yep, you are right. I'm from Ohio, and have lived in NC for 16 years and FL for 23 years. I'll never forget when a guy in NC at work asked me what I was having for dinner. I thought dinner was the meal I had at 6pm. No, he meant lunch. My 6pm meal was called supper. Breakfast, Dinner, and Supper...OK.... Now in FL I'm back to lunch and dinner, go figure. I guess it's too many Yankees here... Al
