RE: National Sea Breeze bedroom slide gears

Does it look like this slide out gear/motor assembly used in the 05 Dolphin. If so, I had problems with the brass gear losing teeth. I tried a steal replacement gear but is too brittle and also broke. The gear needed was a Martin WB1220 that requires the bore to be drilled out from 1/2" to 5/8" and a 1/4" hole drilled for the roll pin. I found replacement gears in brass or steal but that was 4 to 5 years ago now, I see they are still listed. https://www.motioncanada.ca/productDetail.jsp?sku=00367424 https://i.imgur.com/y4eFXgll.jpg https://i.imgur.com/7Lnywiml.jpg

RE: 5-8 Error Code on Onan 7KW Gas Generator

I assume the error code was read counting the 2 sets of the number of blinks by the start button red light, that is after the first 3 blinks showing a shut down, then pressing the start button once showed 5 blinks followed by 8 blinks for code 58.

RE: First trip in Class A driving in Smokey Mountains

I agree with other's comments and it sounds like you did everything right, especially going down hill and not letting your speed build up and get out of control. I never worry about slowing down going up hill as I know there is nothing I can do about it and put on the 4 way flashers when under 45 mph. In the mountains out west, often I may end up following a semi who is also slowed down by the up hill grade and I usually back off a bit on my engine RPMs as it can be many miles to the top.

RE: 2007 workhorse w22 rear wheel axle seals

Your rear end is likely labeled as a Spicer model # S-130. The Workhorse seal # is W8000276 and the Dana-Spicer's part # is W20HH100. https://www.finditparts.com/products/2030547/dana-holding-corporation- w20hh100 Or made by SKF part# SKF 35000 https://www.rockauto.com/fr/moreinfo.php?pk=1837330&jsn=8 Also see DIY video of replacing seal: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZNw5wYmektE

RE: ~Post your campsite photos here~

Gros Morne National Park, Newfoundland, Canada, Berry Hill Campground, site 65 Sept 2019. This is one of the nicest campgrounds we've stayed in. It not only had large,well treed private sites, it had an amazing common area outdoor kitchen with 2 wood burning cook stoves(firewood provided), a stainless steel counter sink with running hot/cold water, well covered by a large roof, bright night lighting and is a Wifi hotspot. First class washrooms and showers were just around the corner. https://i.imgur.com/deqpuFml.jpg https://i.imgur.com/S5XobIql.jpg https://i.imgur.com/1dq8YYal.jpg https://i.imgur.com/jBLsUhbl.jpg https://i.imgur.com/7iE2vhHl.jpg https://i.imgur.com/WZhku1Ol.jpg https://i.imgur.com/PZKctapl.jpg

RE: ONAN 5500 Grand Marquis fuel pump & filter

I got a fuel pump and filter off Amazon.com a few years ago and is still working fine. My fuel would stop(seize) when it got hot causing generator to stop. It would work again once it cooled but stop again when hot. In cold weather it would work better. https://www.amazon.com/s?k=onan+5500+fuel+pump&crid=VQGILPQ11T1L&sprefix=onan+%2Caps%2C286&ref=nb_sb_ss_i_4_5

RE: Yellowstone glacier NP with no reservations

Mammoth & Norris Campgrounds in Yellowstone don't take reservations, first come first serve only. In September we have camped just outside the park then driven in the morning to get a campsite. Be at the campground between 9 & 10 am and you will get a site. Check the dates when campgrounds close each fall. See the campground chart on web site below on what time of day each campground did fill up to estimate what time be at the campground. September is better, not sure about August.

RE: Near New York City and/or train lines

If you could handle dry camping with no electricity there is a NPS operated campground a Floyd Bennett Field in Brooklyn. There are 12 RV sites and 32 tent sites with rates at $30/day. Bus/subway is about 1 hr. 22 mins to Manhattan($13) or Uber maybe $85 and 30 mins away. The closest option is Liberty Harbor RV Park only 15 minutes to Manhattan. https://www.nps.gov//gate/planyourvisit/camp-at-fbf.htm https://www.libertyharborrv.com/

RE: Bike trails

Though not mentioned in your list of states but mentioned by soren is South Dakota. We enjoyed the Mickelson Trail that run for 109 miles through the Black Hills. https://www.traillink.com/trail/george-s-mickelson-trail/ http://i63.tinypic.com/11agapc.jpg http://i67.tinypic.com/a2cc9i.jpg

RE: Bike trails

A bike trail we enjoyed in Alabama is the Chief Ladiga Trail with continues east as the Silver Comet Trail into Georgia. We rode the Alabama section which was once a railway converted to bike/hiking trail and so is fairly level. About 61 miles total of both trails. https://www.trails.com/us/al/talladega-national-forest/chief-ladiga-trail http://i66.tinypic.com/ousbyw.jpg http://i66.tinypic.com/1127fp1.jpg

RE: 2004 Workhorse chassis; no sway bars?

23hotrodr, agree. Once it warms up here, I just got a rear track bar that I'll install plus a Road-Master sway bar. I fact going one more step, I'm removing the old square tube sway bar to make room for Kelderman's 2 stage Workhorse rear air suspension.

RE: 2004 Workhorse chassis; no sway bars?

Here is the rear sway bar for example on our 08 W22. After market ones are available for the W22 (one company is Roadmaster) but I'm not sure about the W20 chassis. To me it doesn't seem that effective when noticing how much the coach rocks side to side when pulling on or off some approaches and on to a highway. Update: It appears the W20 and W22 use the same sway bars offered from these 3 companies, Blue Ox, Roadmaster and Hellwig. http://i67.tinypic.com/210yc2d.jpg

RE: Yellowstone NP in early Sept

You are going in the right time of the year. If you need more time in Yellowstone, Mammoth and several other park campgrounds are first come-first serve, no reservation needed. Show up on the morning you want to camp, especially in Sept/Oct and you will likely get a site. Once on the site, you can stay up to 30 days. We stayed for 7 days in Mammoth campground in mid Sept/18, I didn't notice anyone get turned away if they arrived by 11:00 am. Mammoth is nice, all pull thru sites, and the very helpful campground staff will get you into the right length of site you need. If you go to Mammoth, don't be alarmed if you pull into a short line up as is normal every morning.

RE: ? Class-A Gas Climbing MPH

What often happens going up some mountain grades, I-70 west of Denver being one of most challenging, is needing to gear down to first gear. But keeping the RPMs at a comfortable 3500 for example, 35mph or more is usually easy to maintain. Often in fact you catch up to slower heavy trucks, and as mentioned above, it becomes difficult to get around, so with the 4 way flashers on, you just follow them to the top. Going up is not the problem, going down is where care in needed. You need to stay in a lower gear, but even then, the RV's speed will tend to keep increasing, so brakes must be applied firmly and briefly, with keeps them from over heating.

RE: Best place to stay near Mount Rushmore

We also liked Horse Thief Campground, close enough to Mount Rushmore that we rode our bikes there.

RE: Effective Electronics Circuit Board Washdown?

Cleaning a dusty looking circuit can also be very helpful as you may already have done. No need to wash circuit, just use a brush and light compressed air to remove all signs of dust from components and between components. There could be a problem called crystalline growth on circuit boards(in amoungst the dust) and we did see this at times, though sometimes with the aid of a microscope. Crystalline growth can cause a short circuit on the board. A dust free circuit board may also operate cooler. Best of luck. See info on link & Google for images & other info on this: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Whisker_(metallurgy)

RE: Effective Electronics Circuit Board Washdown?

If the circuit board has electrolytic capacitors and the circuit board was manufactured between 1999 and 2007, visually check all these type of capacitors very closely. If the top bulges up, its bad, replace them. In some cases leakage from them could corrode the circuit board and if it's a multi layered circuit board it usually is not possible to repair the corrosion damage. These were used in every type of electronic product, and I mean everything, cameras, Tv's, PC power supplies, PC monitors, general power supplies, audio, sat. receivers, garage door opener boards, anything. See info here: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Capacitor_plague
