RE: ? Heat & Air on Ford Chassis?

It all depends upon the RV manufacturer and how well they have insulated the house that rides on Ford's chassis. I have never needed more than the chassis heat or A/C while traveling coast to coast or border to border. It keeps the whole house comfortable. And I do not need to run it on high setting. Some RV are entry level and some are 4 season equipped.

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

Have you considered extending the yellow top horizonal board all the way to the top? Above it to the roof appears to be a void behind the cabinets when they are hung. The space behind the board and between the roof and wall could still be filled with foam. The Green outside connector from the wall to roof could also serve as a roof gutter by curling it up in a gutter form extending no more than 1" beyond the wall.

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

If I may make a suggestion, I would place the shower and toilet across the back with a small sink under the window. Bring the dinette forward to use as extra seating and computer/craft/etc. usage and included into the living arrangement. The 2 front seats can be used in the living Rm. configuration. Our coach had a 4 place dining area and only the wife and I use it so I downsized it for 2 people and it works great. We have seating for 10 in the living/dining area (2 couches) and if company is available at meal time we use TV trays for 8. With a good combo couch/bed and dining area will make for more day time enjoyment with sleeping area at night. "If I may make a suggestion" --- Yup, that's the whole point of this discussion. Ok, if I understand what you are saying correctly, I have a drawing that I think indicates what you are saying. If not, let me know. Took a little while to draw this up, but I think this is it. This would definitely open up the front end somewhat, and allow for the people at the dining table to be part of the LR conversation. Thanks for the post. http://paddleupstream.com/mohorebuild/updatedfloorplan.jpg There you go. I was thinking of a general arrangement where those things that are less used to be out of the way to the back and the things most used toward the front. The living room, kitchen and bed room are the most used. The kitchen and dining area and living room can be combined for entertaining and the dining area and kitchen can be used for food preparation and eating. The table if convenient to the kitchen will be useful for additional counter space during meal preparation. The rear bathroom consisting of stool, sink and shower could be combined into one unit like in most homes.

RE: electric brake booster

I have the hydro boost brake system and the electric motor only runs when the brake pedal is pressed.

RE: Blue Ox Hitch

Sounds like the stud that latches into the slot is a little bent and scrubbing the edge of the slot. If it cannot be straightened then a new one is needed. I would mark the point of contact and try hitting it with a hammer to see if that will correct the problem. I have the same Blue Ox Aladdin 10,000 lb. bar.

RE: Trusting your mirrors

Its possible for following traffic to see the mirrors of a vehicle ahead and not be in the focal area of the driver. That is called blind spot. Side cameras or blind spot add on mirrors help to detect traffic in the blind spot of normal mirrors. My coach has 6 mirrors and 3 cameras.

RE: New Ford F53 Chassis

Rating an engine based upon the transmission is a false engine rating. Rate the 6.8 V10 3 Valve 362 HP coupled to a 10 speed trans. Then compare their performance. Chassis have nothing to do with engine performance.

RE: New Ford F53 Chassis

Its the old 460 redesigned. The 6.8 V10 3 valve 362 HP is a much superior engine.

RE: ? Scouring Powders/Cleansers & RV Septic System

I would not use any grit scouring powder, that could eventually end up in the crevices of the rubber valves. These valves seem to collect grit on their own, without adding any. Mine always work best in Spring, due to the lubricating value of the antifreeze I use. I doubt it would harm the pipes/tanks. In any case, I would change my LUNCH time discussion, away from RV septic tanks. Jerry Other than a little tissue paper and water there should not be anything in his holding tank than what he has already eaten and enjoyed.

There are computer programs that will generate various floor plans even with paint schemes and wall hangings.

I noticed in the above picture there is no termite shield. That is a must have in my area to pass code.

RE: furnace leak

Dirt Dabbers and wasps often build in the outside vent in warm season when furnace is not used. Over time it accumulates and restricts the venting when in use.

RE: Spongy floor

The entire floor or a certain location on the floor. The leak is near the rot. Is there a window, vent, outside opening, missing screw on exterior, wheel well, utility through wall, water pipe, water storage, etc. near the leak?

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

You could make some window frames from wood such as Brazilian Cheery, it is very dense and extremely hard. It would need to be drilled and screwed in place like metal.

RE: truck stops

I am at 60' with my tow and I have not had any problem with using regular stations as I am discerning about my choices. My preference is truck stops and Flying J foremost. I use Good Sam RV Plus card at the pump and have no limit cut-off, so I swipe card, pump fuel and go.
