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

How do you like my door hinges? (Sort of). http://paddleupstream.com/mohorebuild/doorhinges2.jpg The door told me it was cold, so I put another coat on it. Lol. I figured, why not. One last coat of clear Por 15 for the outside. If you plan to "dutchize" your door you will need 4 hinges.

Breaking out a window would seem more real.

The screws used in many public bathroom stalls have non reversible heads. LIKE THIS

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

While shopping, my wife and i walked by the hinge section, and SHE picked out these hinges for the door. She said, let's put something different on there, rather than the standard old drab, rv hinges. So, here we are. Black hinges coming up. Just so you realize, with the screws exposed on the outside it makes it really easy to remove the door. Should make for an interesting accent on the door. Now you just need to find a latch that will coordinate with the hinges. I suppose the standard lock in the link would work. At least it would not clash with the hinges. Wonder if there would be a way to texture the surface of the lock to match the texture of the hinges. Totally aware of the screws thing'y. I have a couple of different ideas of making those screws secure so they cannot just be removed with a screw driver. Before posting them, does anyone else have any ideas for keeping the screws from being removed, (or the door secured), to keep the door from being removed? Outside the box thinking here..... Use screws with secure heads such as often are used in bathroom stalls or bolt through with secure nuts on inside and decorative plates to give added security.

I also have a Newmar and it probably has the same lock configuration....I posted a link to it above for fulltimin to see. So far I have not had a problem with the bolt.

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

I don't recall ever hooking my belt on any vehicle or motorhome lock. I can see the possibility of it happening if a person is larger than the door. That reminds me of a real life situation which happened many years ago at Rock City Gardens on Lookout Mountain, TN. The area has huge boulders and at one point on the trail as it winds through the garden there is a place called the "Fat Man Squeeze." There were three ladies ahead of my group and they were friends. At the squeeze point they stopped to discuss being able to pass through while we waited and watched. Two of the ladies were on the obese side of healthy, one overly obese. The smaller lady passed through first and reached her arm back and took hold of the overly obese lady's hand and the lesser obese lady followed behind and pushed on the lady between the two. They overly obese lady wiggled, twisted, turned, and shoved her body forward as the one pulled and the other pushed her. At the point of appearing to be stuck they again had some discussion about whether to continue or to return back the way they came. Had I been a gambling man I would have placed odds that the overly obese lady would never make it through the "Fat Man Squeeze." But she did. But not without a struggle and extended effort and noticeable damage to her clothing which appeared torn and tattered due the the exercise. I can foresee that happening to a motorhome entrance where the latch bolt gets caught in a fold of flesh or a belt should they be wearing one. Not a pretty picture, not a pretty picture at all. :)

This type of lock is on my Newmar…. I have purchased parts from this site with good results. https://www.pacificrvmirrors.com/product-p/30-900.htm

I was responding to: He seems to understand the minutiae of construction. I suspect he is not going to have a door that swings open and closed but does not have a way of properly securing it. If it does not swing it slides.

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

He mentioned that the hinges will be on the left side of the door in his post above my previous one therefore it is a swing door and not sliding.

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

Will there be blocking for the door lock to make for a stronger latch?

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

My Newmar has a Brite Tex roofing and I like it. A single sheet covers the entire roof. My former motorhome had a rubber roof and it required constant maintenance to keep clean.

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

I appreciate your thread very much. A deceased fellow minister told me a few years before he died as we were working together on a construction project about a conversation his father shared with him. He and I both were contractors as was his father. He said his father had built a house and there was a critic of a particular aspect of his work and he replied to them: "I always try to have a little something for everyone." You accomplish that with your reporting. Something for everyone. I like that and give you two thumps up. You are a expert craftsman. Thanks for sharing.

RE: Terrible Trucks

F350, diesel, 4X4, crew cab, long bed, dually are safe vehicles to use for grocery shopping and cruising. What is the value of ones' life?

RE: Diminshed Value Claims

Any vehicle that has suffered damage and been repaired suffers diminished value in resale. It is a previous damaged vehicle and worth less than a comparable vehicle that has not been damaged.

RE: Towing

There is a difference in a tow limit and a pulling limit dependent upon the ditch rating. Hitches rate their limit for trailer towing which has a tongue weight. If the hitch has 350 tongue weight it has a tow weight of 3,500 pounds for a trailer. That is not addressing a 4 down towing, i.e. wagon type of vehicle which bears it own weight. Also his Motorhome build may be built with too little CCC therefore maxed out and overweight when loaded for travel. I was addressing the capability of the '97 Ford 460 CI engine and E40D transmission to pull the 4,900 pound wagon type vehicle according to my experience, with a properly rated hitch and auxiliary braking system properly adjusted for the specific vehicle being towed. If his MH is overbuilt for his chassis and his tow combination then he has a problem. Not all '97 35' MH had the same chassis and same weight of house built upon it. Not all taters are alike. :)
