RE: Running norcild 1200 off the alternator

What failed on the alternator? That's where I would start, they are pretty simple and the failure might point to the problem.

RE: Vintage Winnebago Star of the Movie

Back then they had 3 base models- Brave, Indian and Chieftain. My 1974 Indian was on a Dodge Chassis with a 413 cu in engine and had plenty of power. I used to tow an 8000 lb boat about 500 miles round trip to the Keys.

RE: Vintage Winnebago Star of the Movie

I had a 1974 Winnebago Indian. The one in the movie was shorter, I guess politics at the time (oil embargo in 1974) caused downsizing. Mine handled horribly with the front end too light! It had tanks, generator and 2-40 lb propane tanks behind the back axle. You had to watch the outside mirror for a semi passing, it would blow the RV 1/2 a lane over if you weren't ready! Bought it with a bad delaminating roof and replaced it myself, had to build it on the ground then put on and fasten. BUT, I still had good times in it!

RE: Vintage Winnebago Star of the Movie

I saw the movie The Pleasure Seeker last week /snip/ For those purists who might want to look the movie up, it's actually The LEISURE seeker. OP was deriving PLEASURE watching it..:B....Dennis Must have been that spell checker changing things! (That's my story and I am sticking to it!!) It is a good movie that also covers the subject of Dementia.

RE: airsprings on rear looking bad

If you can find a part number, I have good luck googling part numbers and finding different sources for the part.

Vintage Winnebago Star of the Movie

I saw the movie The Pleasure Seeker last week and a 1975 Winnebago Indian was featured. Here is a link to a discussion on the Winnebago used in the movie with a movie trailer at the bottom. Movie was funny but also sad. https://winnebagolife.com/2018/04/winnebago-in-the-leisure-seeker

RE: Where did the Gas go ?

Didn't some people cut a hole in the floor over the tank for access to the fuel pump instead of dropping the tank? Then put in a hatch to cover it.

Wild guess, diaper or feminine product. Neither will go through.

RE: 95 Bounder 34J--rear leafs--shop recommendation

Bags are the answer, way cheaper, totally adjustable. Any spring change is permanent or spend more money. My guess is poor weight placement making the front end too light. I had a 1974 Winnebago Indian that had two 30 lb LP tanks, generator, fuel and water tanks behind rear axle. It was MISERABLE to drive over 40 mph, semi's would blow it 1/2 a lane sideways and you had to always watch the mirrors for up coming traffic to compensate!

RE: SURGING PROBLEM

That sure sounds like Torque Converter Lock Up in and out. I have had GM Vehicles that you could feel when lock up occured and it felt like another gear shift. Something to try, when it is working normally, tap the brake pedal but don't push hard enough to apply the brakes, just enough to turn on the brake lights. That will cancel lock up and when you let go of the brake you should feel lock up again. Watch the tach to see if it is the same issue.

RE: SURGING PROBLEM

Sounds like the torque converter is unlocking them locking back up. Most scanners and even free phone apps and using a bluetooth dongle will show torque converter clutch (TCC) status. Watch to see off the command is being lost to lock. If the command is not changing, then tapping the wiring at the trans and adding a light might be needed to prove a weak connection to the solenoid. Unfortunately most mechanics will not pursue without a CEL as a starting point. And at $100+/hr it can get costly for a shop to try to track down an intermittent problem. I had a TCC lockup solenoid fail on a 4L60E that resulted in weak and no lock conditions. It was easy to access requiring only dropping the pan. I don't know where it is on the 1000. Just an additional thought about the converter lock up- Have you had any issues with the brakes? Why I ask is applying the brakes cancels lock up. If a brake issue were causing brake pressure in the system it might cancel lock up. ??? Did Workhorse ever have brake hose issues? Just a wild guess outside of the box.

RE: Pita Bread

and you bake it where? As posted, in an oven or even a skillet on the stove. Dutch oven would be iffy because they bake so quick. They bake very fast and puff up then go flat when cool. There are videos showing them baking. They say they taste better than store bought. You can also add any flavors that you like, maybe garlic, onion, or??

Pita Bread

I was curious about how difficult it was to make Pita Bread so I googled it. It seems it is very easy and bakes fast, 4-5 minutes and can be made in an oven or skillet. Dough can be kept in fridge and used over a few days. The only difficulty if you want to call it that is it takes a couple hours to rise which is not a big deal. I haven't tried it yet but just wanted to throw it out there.

RE: Florida Camping

The Keys is heavily policed as far as parking somewhere overnight. They even enforce hitchhiking laws to try and keep riff raff out. The biggest problem with this time of year is Spring Breakers keep parks full and if you find a spot you might not enjoy it. I have been to the Keys and Panama City during S B and it was a ZOO!

RE: Fixed: Reverse lights not working

They should work with ignition on, engine off, BUT set parking brake!! In order I would check- Bulbs/sockets, fuse, back up switch and switch connection.

RE: Car Trailer behind a class A MH

He states MH has "20,000 lb hitch". That is towing limit, NOT tongue weight! Putting 2800 lbs tongue weight would be much over loaded even for storage! Even at 5 mph that he said it would handle moving around a campground. It's a fun idea but they should have made a lift up tow dolly. Much lighter.

RE: Salisbury Steak Casserole

I have been making Salisbury Steak lately just using Campbell's Soup Recipe found online. https://www.campbells.com/kitchen/recipes/simple-salisbury-steak/ It is simple and turns out great! I do add a small can of mushroom stems and pieces chopped up. I also make extra and freeze it.
