RE: How To Clean This

Xylene to remove residue after cutting the bulk off with a plastic razor blade. Heat gun will make it all easier

RE: Mobility Scooter/power chair question

My wife as a mobility scooter. It is called a GoGo and will break down into the seat, the battery pack and then the chassis will break in the center (locking device) We have hauled that one, or one very close, all over the nation. When she had some mobility in her legs and could assist me in getting into the DP we had, we just loaded it into the basement storage or put it in the back of a Honda Element we towed back then. Now, we haul a folding wheelchair in the back of the Wrangler. We have a lift on the side of the MH that allows her to ride the scooter up on, then lift her and the scooter up to where they are able to ride into the coach. The coach is a handicap accessible by Newmar (Canyon Star 3911) While it is a bit more trouble with the scooters and wheelchair, we still manage to get out and see the country a few trips a year. No more two month trips at our age but we still enjoy

RE: Truck Scalping

My grandson got a call from the dealer he bought his 2500 Ram (bells and whistles) wanting to buy it back. He ended up sell the thing back to them for $12000 more than he gave for it. Made no sense at all until the other day I was at the same dealer and saw a list of a similar 2500 for well over $82000. Still makes no sense but they are selling the darn things

RE: Motor vehicle laws. Complicated jurisdiction question.

I might call BS on that business of not needing insurance if you have never had an accident in your life. With that rationale, an 18 year old male would not be required to have insurance and he is in the group that have the highest accident rate in the nation. Why don't you show us the State law code section that says that it is not required.

RE: Class A fleetwood discovery - should we purchase ??

Leave that Fleetwood sitting where it is. If this is all the known issues, then how many exist that have yet to be discovered? Leave it alone. Not sure about the Mt Air except it was the bread and butter of Newmar for years.

RE: Daisy chain cable size?

TRaveler - Not trying to beat a dead horse. With that rationale, would the end battery in the sketch be more 'unbalanced' than the other end?

RE: Daisy chain cable size?

Why was I under the impression that with the 4 batteries sketched the wire going to the device being powered should be fed from between the two sets of 2? Same with the grounding wire.

RE: Removal of gas strut

you are exactly right. Might be easier to remove the phillips screws and do it, Not hard to replace either

RE: headed to Myrtle Beach

Jams can happen almost instantly on I-95 from just south of Savannah to north a couple of miles above the river and SC line. No idea why it happens but many times I headed into Hilton Head from 16 it was go slow for a while

RE: Holes in Fiberglass Roof

micro cracks that allowed water to get below the gelcoat. Freezing expanded the water to ice and the cracks got bigger. as freeze thaw cycled this what eventually happened. Go as deep as necessary to solid material then re-glass. Or, if you can find a boat repair shop willing, have them do it professionally. That would be my choice because falling off the roof an anything is not a good thing to happen to a geezer

RE: solar powered electric vehicle.

Those two vans with the outstretched panels remind me of a caption that fits this topic "When pigs fly".

RE: Auxiliary brake system

We've been using the same one for 21 years. Towed Jeeps, a Colorado and for the last 10 years a Silverado. It's been back to the factory twice ($200+-) with about a week turn-a -round. Ed We have (I think) Classic or similar, I have blocked between the driver seat and the unit but still it gets loose. I really cannot tell if the thing releases or not by looking at the device that sits on the dash in front of me. I have about given up on even using it. If not too much effort on your part, please tell me steps you go through to make sure the BB is installed and working correctly (ie releasing when it is supposed to) Thanks in advance

RE: Gas Class A

We have had 3 diesel coaches and this is our first gasser. The gasser is great and is the only handicap equipped coach I could find without have a custom built and at my age, that is not feasible. All that said I was not afraid to get on the interstate and run either cumming or cat hard all day. I would not feel comfortable doing that with the gasser (ford) even though I have been told the engine would take it. I guess it is whatever suits your needs and wants, but had I found a DP handicap equipped we would have that today.

RE: Gauges are not working

Our precious coach (Freightliner chassis) did that twice. Scared me. I turned it off and shut everything down, waited a few minutes and restarted. The coach had been setting for a few weeks both times
