RE: Upper, lower, and heater hose replacement

Replace the upper and lower radiator hoses after replacing the radiator. That is a rule of thumb that proved accurate in my case. I had all the hoses replaced by an independent shop on my Excursion and received a bill of $1,000. I about fell over. Everything I read say the heater hoses shold be good for thelife of the truck.

Opening behind mirror base 02 Winnebago Sightseer?

I discovered a little delam under my drivers side mirror. I removed the mild steel screws and replaced them all with stainless steel and a generous dollop of 3M4200. The delam appeared to get a little worse. I was wondering whether there is another opening behind the mirror base. If so I will have to either seal AROUND the mirror base or remove the mirror and seal the other opening.

RE: Ford Excursion 2wd

The 2wd will be much lower, have a shorter turning radius and have fully independent suspension in the front. With M/S tires and a Ltd Slip I never had any trouble in the snow. I did put some weight in the back one real bad snow storm. Went everywhere I needed to go. Go on and rust treat the inner rocker panels now. I didn't and they rusted out bad.

RE: P32 sticking rear caliper

Got everything in last summer. Had the mechanic pull all the pins and lube with the Permatex lube. They also had to replace one of the rigid lines too. Brakes are much improved, but they still take some effort.

RE: I'm looking for a replacement truck

If you are interested in gas, the last year for the 8.1 in the truck is 2007. Put up a search on Ebay and auto tempest for nationwide craigslist search. Might want to try a search on Facebook marketplace. I have an 8.1 in my MH. I always say if I had the 8.1 in my tow vehicle I would still have a TT.

RE: LiquidSpring Suspension

Here is everything I've done to my 05, that probably has the shortest wheelbase to length ratio of any motorhome, and after all of this, it handles pretty well. After buying it I thought what have I done! I mowed down a row a cones on the way home. It cost some money, but since I spent $15,000 on the MH I had a little to spend. I can't spend $12,000 0n a $15,000 coach. https://farm5.staticflickr.com/4851/45795210041_a9f275c1f1_b.jpgUntitled by jspringator, on Flickr

RE: Driving differences between 25', 31' class C's.

I went from an Excursion towing a 33' TT to a 27 foot Class A. It is a lot easier for me to handle than the TT and X. I don't tow a car; I use it to go everywhere. I can always find a way. Mine has a large overhang, so it does swing wide when turning. Mine is more than big enough for 2 people. Take a hard look at how much MH you really need. Don't get one too small, but don't get more than you truly need. Remember, kids don't camp with their parents much past age 16, so plan ahead. When my youngest goes with us, I set her up a big tent and stick an AC in it. Smaller is better and eaier to deal with, but not if it is too small to do what you want to do with it.

RE: Exterior outlet on Winnebago

The stainless steel clothes pins work. Here is an Amazon link. https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B01NBR79Z1/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o07_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1

RE: Winterizing "fun"

My pump won't draw pink pop from the bottle. I've been blowing it out with compressed air. Is thare some sort of pump I could attach to the city water and pump it in that way?

RE: Fear Aggression

No growel. No warning, except dilated pupils. By then it was too late. That dog was a lot quicker than me!

RE: Fear Aggression

My Springer was a fear biter. 40 mg of generic Proziac a day really helped him. No bites after we started it. The Dr. tried Alprazalam, but all that did was release his inhibitions. He would countersurf right in front of us instead of waiting until we left. Based on that and other things I read I thought that would increase his tendency to bite.

RE: Exterior outlet on Winnebago

UPDATE. The weather cover I ordered did not fit. I taped the cover, off, painted it, and ran a good sized bead of caulk around the top and sides. I used 3M4000 UV. Later, I plan to mount one of those flaxible plastic gutters over this outlet, and eash window. I'm also trying some stainless steel clothes pins to attach to the end of each gutter. I'll do another post after I see if they work.

RE: Exterior outlet on Winnebago

Got any suggestions for a more water-tight replacement?

Exterior outlet on Winnebago

I have the beginning of delam under the exterior outlet on my Winnebago. The outlet appears to be of an unusual design that I can't find anywhere. Does anyone have a link to a new one? I tightened it up, but I would feel better replacing the whole thing. https://farm2.staticflickr.com/1955/30421819287_f0e79e49a8.jpgUntitled by jspringator, on Flickr

RE: Water pump won't pull Antifreeze from the jug.

I had the same issue. Replaced the pump. No joy. Works fine for water use. I ended up first draining the system by use of the low point drain (in my case the shower head on the ground), and then using a jump starter with an air pump to blow out all the lines. I give it 10 seconds to come up to pressure, then I open it quickly. I do it 3-5 times per line. Ended up being cheaper than pink pop. Still have to do the drains though.

RE: Antenna will not work unless MH plugged in

After running The motor for 20 minutes it suddenly came on. Definitely battery related. Thanks.

RE: Antenna will not work unless MH plugged in

I probably have a dead cell or 2 in the old golf cart batteries. I did get it to work after running the generator for a while. Doesn’t work when the motor is running.

RE: Antenna will not work unless MH plugged in

I did have a led on. When I get back I’ll check it.
