RE: Done!

Good luck with your full timing. The housing market has cooled off a bit with higher interest rates, but hopefully you'll have a quick sale.

RE: How is the Current RV Market to Sell My Coach?

Our financial advisor, who also owns a DP, predicted 6 months ago that ‘22-‘23 would be a buyer’s market. ?? I believe so. Interest rates will probably take another jump and it appears that a sharp downturn in the economy will take hold by December or January. Add to that the people that are already over-leveraged and it may be folks will not be buying as much, but also dumping rigs they can no longer afford. And that doesn't include layoffs that are starting to ramp up. Facebook is quietly laying off 10% of it's workforce.

RE: Field tricks to remove inside dually wheel?

An old mechanics trick is to place a brick or even a stone under the inside edge of the tire a few inches in. Then lower the jack slowly and the off center load will frequently free it up. If it doesn't work the first time then rotate the wheel 180 degrees and try again.

RE: Ford V10 Triton

What Lumpty said is spot on. I have an 03 V10 and it has the full length spark plugs. Anything before that has the shorty plugs.

RE: thor vegas 25.6

Even if everything is off, there are parasitic drains such as the keep alive memory in the radio and other things like that. Also make sure if it has a heated mirror that the switch for it is turned off. You might consider a Trik L Start which feeds a small amount of current from the house batteries to the chassis battery to keep it's charge. You might also try a 12 volt ampmeter and put it around the red/positive wire on the battery and it will measure the resting draw.

RE: E-450 Stuck on Defrost Mode

If you can find a mechanic with a smoke machine, they can hook it up and the smoke will reveal the location of the leak. They can connect it to the hose on the brake booster or other places will work also. Or you can try the poor man's smoke machine.Blow smoke from a big ol cigar and have someone watch under the dash while you watch the engine compartment.

RE: Searching for the new motorhome

I'm sort of in the same boat as you. My last rig was a 2017 32 foot Jayco with 2 slides. I was not that happy with the build quality,and the ride wasn't that bad, but I found the E450 chassis really strained with the weight of the slides, jack system, Hellwig springs and such. Then there were issues with the stretched frame and driveline vibrations. I sold and will go with either a Super C, or most likely a DP. I just want it too carry the weight with ease. It will be my last rig and I don't want any regrets like I had with the C.

RE: Which old motorhome to buy

There's a couple on youtube who did a schoolie conversion and they full time. The husband happened to be a diesel mechanic for a school district. He commented that if you get one, avoid any that have either a Mercedes or a Maxforce diesel.
