RE: yet another door look bites the dust

Clicky Good idea. But a screw driver bit and a 1/4" wrench fits in smaller areas. Richard

RE: GMC Class A

Interesting GMC Class A info. I had the privilege of touring a gathering of GMC MHs. A couple had been cut in half and extended. One had a rare fuel injected 500" Cadillac motor installed. I couldn't even count the $$ sitting in front of me. Another interesting place for GMC MH owners. Richard

RE: RV insurance claim - flood

If you feel like you are not being treated well by your insurance company, contact the state insurance agency. They are you advocate. I have used them here in MO. with positive results. Richard

RE: What Chassis do I have

Getting back to the original topic, I was curious as to the manufacturer for the frame of my Gulfstream Class A. It turned out to be a John Deere chassis. I had no idea that John Deere made a chassis, but the do for trucks and RVs. They did years ago. If I remember correctly, and I very well could be wrong, it was basically a rebadged Ford chassis. The John Deere chassis used a Ford 460 with carb & C6 tranny until 1990. 1991 had a EFI 460 & C6 tranny. 1991 was the last year for John Deer's class A chassis. Freightliner is now the John Deere OEM parts supplier. Richard

RE: LP gas leak

I suggest teflon pipe dope made for propane and natural gas. Neither tape or pipe dope is a sealer. It's designed to be a lubricant to allow NPT fittings to screw together more easily. Richard

RE: 2005 Fleetwood Expedition

It wasn't Cat engine failures that took Cat engines off the road. It was the EPA challenges that Cat didn't want to face. Cat still makes great engines for off road equipment. Richard

RE: HwH is getting Ridiculous

Rick.Jay. THANKS. Racklefratz is exactly what ails ALL repair and Parts servicers. Of course, HE does not see it that way. WHY does he think RV's are different from Autos in parts and service? Well, the answer is that RV service and auto service are apples and oranges, but you people are in terminal denial of that, simply because it exposes the problems in the RV service business you people are complicit in. It IS, what it IS. The RV service business is abysmal, and you know it. You're just trying to put a happy face on it, and most of us owners see it what what it is - frustrating and disgusting. I may be in the minority of RV owners willing to expose you people's lackadasical attitudes for what they are, but I'm here to do it, having 30 year's experience with it. The auto industry's approach to service-after-the-sale is night-and-day different from that of the RV industry's. Car makers take it very seriously; they want you back as a repeat customer. RV dealers? Nah - once they get your signature on the deal, you're a stranger, and they don't give a rat's ass if they ever see you again - in fact, they HOPE THEY DON'T. And that includes people like YOU, "Doug". You're part of the problem. Hmmmmmmm. Doug is the most informed person on this forum and he is part of the problem. NOT! Racklefratz, you need to go away. You have nothing to contribute but hate and discontent. Richard

RE: I need to buy a Onan 6.5 kw generator model 6.5nhefa26100p

An Onan 7K NHM will also fit in the same space. Both are twin cylinder, 60 cu. in. engine. 1800 RPM. I suspect the NHE is a more pollution free version of the NHM. Thus 0.5K less out put. Richard

RE: 1995 F53 dash air conditioner receiver/drier

Year not an issue. Same set up from 1986 to 1997. here is a pic of how I previously stated to change the receive dryer. https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/TuQVWXxwS45_hQDU1WFBlsln13PHN7YLGeNyk-SSQI4c0drsncKGyiq38V1LGljoTXhVNORw5L0QNucJ5Fqqz9ScNGM5CH_9qlDggCftlRx3QeDY2x9smbAM8Plej7Dg2f3JM0fc3uVFI5IO82-oZ2P__s4lN3IxNvy1rEWioYR5_mMfDnp4L2W4dTULMgBY_OJKhioml--Fs05kNRuxOyKrXRV0ZDMPQsVNEsu_yhTmOKkx_gRUeVWmPgZgHan1OOb0yg5qPnQFbstwKu9Ll7Basp24yrMG4liZCwIjFFXir9BZwTSbLUlvLDYkG4gdXJE2mc1KuRJSl0rvCcoTjaf2QjP0BVsaHoeIsB8ttPyReJCRqq2MOAFPa7K4kizQwD40tw3Ph1e2WLRQ63sYFBAbrA8vWdPdA0URljyB4DLJaHYKLUyEpBPBR4F5Proe1FgnTgLdYnXSyK7sg507zmg3bOwqIsEOMtJkS-HCNoMTzO4W02yw73xbI5rSX3-Z2mQJ8LLYQPXHvBBaCny7VXqkpy0SPS-oZOjKmTFzg8XmfvCn6y3nMynhHTYJPQiOxXIWlLnqiB2Su9k7D5ADoCW9wZvUNr6jDub0PQUMHqOSuS7bo5G-rp0Z_wf8a6LBS3sCFBzP-BTdJY-d-iNqwrCv1e3CyOKhsDZHuee5c1DMtifr5ex5INg7DInaNdY4WacYDBK0UnA6nBMVOYoqiMQCgfoYW0fi5LJaBFgzRn0pQeprlawy6mGpQP4dQjKv4sGHX_FSSVxIOPd-e60PgNF9aOdtv4dc6xKa3__Bq-dimkh1nSWU4aX3rSnLj5Dp0XkZFCpWeuj5GALXr77BA9eQ89c2cJdHp5xl_C5XiC5QbE1FgHfZe6XapVI44xObHSc_ynPXOHt6Sn7mys3R8OFbaAAjRa2l0VH4KVibiPHXJO0r=w1250-h937-no?authuser=0 height=600 width=400

RE: Norcold fridge - clogged drain tube?

As Doug suggested, remove the check valve. Then maybe try pouring some hot water in the tray. Might melt the blockage. Richard

RE: Roof Sealant type

Listen to Doug. Dicor has been punishing us RVers for ever, with their cheap product. Sikaflex is a quality product that you don't have to inspect all the time, looking for cracks. I've been using Sikaflex-715 for years with never a crack. Richard

RE: 1995 F53 dash air conditioner receiver/drier

The receiver dryer is a Ford part. It comes with a unique dry break connection on the discharge end. The easy way out is get a dryer with tube "O" ring connections on both sides and a 90° tube "O" ring to barb fitting to put on the old hose. The expansion valve is from the coach manufacture. If you have a Fleetwood product, the expansion valve is from Denso. Most other coach manufactures use Evens Tempcon for their dash ACs. Richard

RE: Refrigerator

Well at 81 I had very few choices as a youngster in Appalachia. No indoor plumbing, outhouse, wood stove for both heat and cooking, farmed with horses, no car, no phone, no electric, no TV, kerosene lamps for light, hunted or raised all we had to eat. We had nothing so at the ripe old age of 15 after not going to school for 2 years I walked out of there and have done pretty well since. But there will always be those holier than thou folks that will look down their nose at me because I miss spell a word now and then. So be it. I'll still help with your refrigerator if I can, no problem. Hay, I'm with ya every step of the way. Ya have me by a year. I'm just a pup? I also experienced no running water, out house, pot belly stove, etc. I made it through the 10th grade and did well in the trades. I couldn't survive the forums with out a spell checker. Richard

RE: Water Heater Dometic 2022 Burning Rough Not Work Hi Altitude

There are a few thigns that can cause "Rough" burning and other problems Insects sometimes nest in the hot path... Dirty Gas Jet (Orifice) And in your case the suspect #1 is the air/fuel ratio. There is a sliding collar on the large burner tube just past the gas very much smaller gas jet.. at high altitude you need to slide it so the "Windows" in the tube open a bit more.. Your eyes and ears are the "Meters" you use to make the adjustment You want a clean flame and proper sound... The OWner's manual if in color, has photos or you can to the thing I don't like... YOU TUBE Here is the RV Doctor https://youtu.be/nSjDklZh4ws The information you provided is wrong. You provided info for an Atwood water heater. Richard

RE: Oil Pressure Help Needed! - 1993/p30/454

I see 2 possabilities. The wire from the oil pressure sending switch may have temporally shorted to ground. The switch sends a modulated ground signal to the gauge. Thus a short will peg the gauge high. Or the oil pressure sending switch is failing. Richard

RE: ALWAYS something!

Well it is a sad state indeed, that the RV manufacturers present us with such poor quality. Every time I see posts like this I go out and give my old Bounder a Lub, Oil, filter and a big hug.............. When we went on out 4 month trip to Alaska, I had one failure. Had to replace a clearance light lense, that someone else needed. Richard

RE: JC Refrigeration 12 volt compressor cooling unit

Your SRM 27 deep cycle batteries are NOT true deep cycle batteries but are RV/Marine batteries. They are compromise batteries. On a cold night they would probably NOT run the furnace and the refrigerator all night. The furnace blower is a high amp draw item. Richard

RE: Extended stay propane use

The "Extend A Stay" "T" connects to the propane shut off valve and the old fitting screws to the "T". Fitting to valve is LEFT handed threads. See pictures of installation. Richard
