RE: Plain Black Wrapper

How much time have you saved when ticketed taken to post a bond that takes about 2 hours. Longer if the officer is miffed by your attitude.

RE: Plain Black Wrapper

on a 3000 mile trip how much time is saved by speeding at 80mph 10/15 mph over limit? Nobody's time is worth more than others. As I told semi and greyhound drivers when I ticketed them Don't stay so long talking to the waitress. Why do we speed? "Because we don't want to spend more time on the road than necessary." If we need to be somewhere at a specific time depart where you are with time to arrive at the destination without speeding. "That still doesn't negate the unnecessary time spent sitting at the wheel due to some arbitrarily arrived at speed limit." Speeding is a juvenile attitude exhibiting the need to violate rules. "That doesn't even deserve a rebuttal." I travel by RV to avoid regimented schedules.I'm not sure what "regimented schedules" have to do with speeding. Leave early enough to make your designated time of arrival.Notice my first riposte'. No matter when you leave, you'll still spend more time on the road, in the car, behind the wheel when you drive slower than when you drive faster.

RE: Serpentine belt

Thank you, the belt is installed via under the bed where the engine is visible? 2001 Freightliner Fleetwood Bounder My C7 has a single serpentine belt that also spins the water pump. Even with my rear radiator setup I can change it myself in about 15-20 minutes and the only tool needed is a 1/2" drive ratchet to move the tensioner. Actually the most difficult part is removing all the "stuff" (my wife's clothes, shoes and the cat's bed) out of the rear closet to open the hatch in the floor. Lou 05 Travel Supreme Envoy

RE: Serpentine belt

Where do ou have it installed and at what labor costs? Because of the higher heat where the belts are located in a diesel pusher, I would strongly suggest 10 years is twice what I would run. And very likely on the Caterpillar C7 you have a separate V belt that drives only the water pump. It is NOT on an automatic tensioner, so tension needs to be checked and adjusted occasionally. And, replace this belt when you replace the serpentine belt. EXACTLY!!!!!!!!!! We've owned our '04 Itasca Horizon 36GD with the CAT C-7 330HP now for 8 years and have put 42,000 on it since we purchased it. And I've changed that Serpentine belt and the water pump belt TWICE in that time frame. Those belts are waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay too cheap to try and stretch a life span on them especially since we often are on looooooong stretches of baron roads and freeways. So, knowing I've done at least that to help preserve our nice travels, is a great piece of mind. Scott
