RE: '92 Coachman Chugs & Stalls Cold Gas to Fix - Another Way?

When it acts up stop and open gas cap and listen for vacuum sound. Might be a problem with fuel vent system (emissions). ??

RE: Towing

Something like this? This guy was across from us at the Grand American World Trapshooting Championships a few years ago. I don't know what state he was from https://scontent-ort2-2.xx.fbcdn.net/v/t1.0-9/563058_10100635389406560_530644862_n.jpg?_nc_cat=111&ccb=3&_nc_sid=cdbe9c&_nc_ohc=0LPecHXaFDYAX91q8tr&_nc_ht=scontent-ort2-2.xx&oh=e2fc50cf898e5341ecebc8af4de35372&oe=605356AA width=600 A much safer way to do that would be to have a double axle trailer, put the golf cart in front sideways with ramps from the side and SUV in back. Simple electric trailer brakes. Handling would be way better. If ever they had to swerve to avoid something with pictured combination it would not be pretty!

RE: Towing

I have Class-A with Doubles-triples endorsements. Semi's use fifth wheel, trailer, converter dolly to firth wheel to trailer. The converter dolly connects to pintle hook on back of front trailer with air snubber to prevent slop. Air brakes on all including dolly with brake away valves. I would NEVER tow the rig OP describes!

RE: Loss of rear air pressure

Possible problem with leveling valve. ??? Could linkage have come loose while down? Valve dirty, some how stopped up?

RE: Taaadaaa! Took the plunge. Airbags on the Class A

I have drilled a few hundred holes in semi frames mounting axles/equipment and I can't imagine using battery tools! We used a 1/2" drill with a "D" handle AND put a chain around the frame through the "D" in a loupe. With chain tight you rotate the drill which forces the drill into the hole. In your case you might try a rope around the frame and drill to get more force. You also must use slow speed with lub.

RE: Changing Spare Tire

It would always be to your advantage to be ready to do it yourself. As stated wheel chocks are a must for safety. Also an assortment of wood blocks to drive upon so there is less jacking. Even on a flat front this will help. Also for under the jack on soft ground. I have changed many dozens of semi and/or car tires and you will find over tightened lug nuts often so a cheater pipe to fit over a breaker bar should be carried. Every vehicle can be a little different so you need to be ready. I had a Class A with A frame front end and I needed 2 jacks for a front tire! One for the frame and one for the A frame. And large tire iron to "Jimmy" the tire onto the studs.

RE: Warm weather traveling

I have had numerous motorhomes and I always used the generator with roof air and NO dash AC. The dash AC will use more fuel than the generator plus dash AC equals more heat for the engine to dissipate and motorhomes are notorious for engine heat problems.

RE: How to Fix a Squirrelly Front End?

Ford invented the phrase "Keep it between the ditches". If you still have the Twin I-Beam it was never a good system. One trick to aligning Twin I-Beam is to replace the coil springs. (sagged over time) The only alternative is to bend the I-Beam which needed special equipment.

RE: Air bags on a Class A gasser

There are hours of reading on here about Ford harsh riding/handling. The only thing that would make air bags harsh riding is over inflating for the load. A compressor/adjustable system would give the driver tuning control for the conditions.

RE: Cummins ISB 5.9 Cranks but no fire-ECM power.

I would double check/clean all battery connections. Also check to see if you missed connecting a ground wire back to the engine. Could even try a jumper cable from frame to engine temporarily. My best unfamiliar with unit guesses.

RE: Help! Onan 4K generator refuses to start and stay on

Do you have MORE than a 1/4 tank of gas?

RE: Ford V10 vs Chevy Gas

i had 20 years experience with a fleet service consisting of cargo vans. the v10 plug issues are from early days. we got 300k trouble free miles out of v10s post 2005, same with the 5.4 from late 90s thru early 2000s. bullet proof engine that loves to drink gas. don't get me started on ford diesels after the older 7.3 diesel. i have no experience with chevy and dodge Time Cert is an aftermarket spark plug repair kit for Ford engines. The kit instructions state that it covers 4-6-8-10 cylinder Ford engines from 1993 to 2004.

RE: Teacher's Pet

Please pace yourself and don't be too hasty. It would be easy to get taken advantage of while dealing with your grief. Get advice from others that you trust, so often we hear stories of widows being swindled. I lost a girlfriend to cancer in 1992 and later realized I was in a fog for over a year after. Just something to think about, Wish you well.

RE: Towing with a dolly

If computer is confused you might have to remove a battery cable then reconnect to reset. My Smartphone is ALWAYS confused!

RE: 1972 Ford RV - Can't find any info

A money pit!!! Just price a new set of tires and you are in deep. Also what will you do for a title?

RE: New RVer with some diesel fuel issues.

The good news is you have found the problem and it is minor. With the right cleaning you should be back on the road.

Just another wild guess, partially stopped up muffler. ???

RE: 88 Ford 460 keeps dying

Your engine temp is too low, you need the correct thermostat. That can cause bogging issues also.
