RE: Boarder crossing insanity - CBP gone crazy...

We have Nexus cards. To get one they do a background criminal check and you have to go in for an interview. Takes a few months. Normally all they do at the Nexus booth is ask you where you're going and/or if you have anything to declare and they wave you on. The Nexus lane is a LOT faster than the regular lanes and usually get through in minutes at the most. We cross the border a lot year round because we also have a mailbox in the US and having Nexus helps a lot for that too. Just wondering if any of the Nexus group ever go bad? Sounds like they would be the target to buy off to be a carrier for illegal drugs, etc.

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

That thing washed up there during high tide. :) Hope you also had time to visit the Creation Museum. We enjoyed a visit from a Christian minister and wife Saturday who live there at Williamstown. We have enjoyed a couple visits to the museum over the years. A lot to see. A couple days are recommended to fully appreciate the museum and planetarium. We are currently parked about 1 1/2 hours east of the Ark, I-64. Be here for another 2 weeks.

RE: Remove 3 m from front of coach

I would rather paint the front than have than junk on my coach again.. wife and I removed it in a couple days labor... not bad, took our time. Mine was still under warranty but they refused to honor the warranty. Newmar quoted me $6,000 for the job. Rocks chips are easily repaired.

RE: Balancing Rear Tires?

My preference would be to have them trued and balanced for the ultimate quality ride. All tire have run-outs and out of balance problems. Nothing is perfect in its mold form.

RE: Brother in Law wants to not get in financial trouble

Ford recommends oil change every 7,500 miles on V-10. That is 2 for every one on diesel at 15,000. Math and reading are very interesting studies. :)

RE: Brother in Law wants to not get in financial trouble

There is a big difference between pressed sawdust covered with paper and solid wood cabinets and furniture; as well as hinges, latches, etc.. There is a big difference between plastic toilets, sinks showers, etc. and stainless steel, china, fiberglass, etc. There is a huge difference between a cheap foam mattress and a quality mattress. There is a major difference between a quality slide mechanism and a cheap mechanism. There is considerable difference in wall, window, doors, roof materials and construction. Our traveling friends have a popular brand diesel pusher and their dining table is constructed with over a half inch out of level and their cabinets are of the same build dis-quality. Their ceiling is coming loose in several locations. But their ride is quiet. All late model class A and class C use Ford chassis with the V-10 engine and Tow-Haul transmission (it has ability to provide auxiliary braking). The Ford chassis will compete with diesels in the same class and size for less cost to operate.

RE: Low overpasses, etc.

There are 4-5 thousand bridges in the USA with clearances below the federal limits.

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

Its not healthy to breathe recycled air...that is what would happen to a person living in a air tight environment. They would be breathing their own second hand air and soon deplete all the oxygen.

RE: Is it legal to get use?

An option would be to establish a PO Box convenient for a family member or trusted friend and call them occasionally and have them to pick up your mail and put it into a mail package and mail it to you. The Post Office would need to have the trusted person's name on record and the person would need your Box code. My son does me the favor and I pay his expense.

RE: Is this legal???

I was fueling my coach a few years ago and the pump cut off before a full tank was pumped. I reinserted my card to continue filling the tank and the price increased $0.02 per gallon. In that incident I considered the first contract was fulfilled at the cutoff. I would venture that if two people agreed on a price and the price was paid up front in full that would seal the contract from one party changing it without consent of the other party agreeing.

RE: How important is a refer thermistor?

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

Drywall, i.e. Sheetrock can be had in 1/4 inch thickness. What is fire resistant drywall? Gypsum is approximately 21 percent by weight chemically combined water which greatly contributes to its effectiveness as a fire resistive barrier. When gypsum drywall is exposed to fire, the water is slowly released as steam, effectively retarding heat transmission. Fire Rated Gypsum - CertainTeed https://www.certainteed.com/drywall/what-fire-rated-gypsum/ Is all drywall fire resistant? Drywall is relatively fireproof, but manufacturing processes such as adding glass fibers can increase the resistance. Drywall is relatively fire resistant. It's composed of gypsum pressed between two sheets of thick paper. Gypsum is a soft mineral that by itself is not flammable.Dec 15, 2011 Is Drywall Fire Resistant? | Angie's List https://www.angieslist.com/articles/drywall-fire-resistant.htm Class A Fire Retardant Fiberglass Wall Panels Class A Fire Retardant fiberglass wall panels are USDA approved so they can be used in food processing areas, restrooms, shower and tub walls, animal enclosures, surgical rooms, and workshops, as well as many other applications where health and sanitation are concerns.

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.
