RE: Furnace trouble again .....

I would disconnect the factory ducts and see if it will run longer, I am thinking the old flexible ducts are starting to restrict the air flow and the new regulator just added more heat to the heat exchanger that the old duct work can't handle so you are tripping on over heat limits.

RE: Anyone interested in 83 Pace Arrow Tear down and Rebuild?

On a slightly more realistic note, I saw this on eBay a few years ago. What do you think of the color scheme? Yes, I am serious. http://paddleupstream.com/mohorebuild/pacolor1.jpg http://paddleupstream.com/mohorebuild/pacolor2.jpg I like the simplicity of the scheme, though I am more into Green or blue rather than the red and brown. I do detest the newer swirls and other blobs they are using on the newer coaches and trailers. My Gulf Stream is as complicated as I would want to go if I ever repainted it.

RE: Cummins 5 year old synthetic oil with 1000 miles - change ?

My oil is going on 5 years and last year I only put on about 350 miles. Blackstone labs says to keep going as the oil is good and I am running Dino, not Syn. I would not worry about it especially for the short haul though I would put enough miles on it during the moves to get the engine and oil hot, maybe a 30-45 minute drive on the highway and not city streets.

RE: Anyone interested in 83 Pace Arrow Tear down and Rebuild?

Put some kind of tung on the hinge side to fit into a recess on the frame. That way when the hinges are removed the door is still pinned to the frame on the hinge side and the dead bolt pins it on the latch side.

RE: What did you do to your Class A MH today???

Filled Fuel Tank and placed the old girl in the Barn for the winter. I can't wait until April or May when she can come back out into the sunshine.

RE: Bad Dog = No Start and No shifting of Transmission

I would check a Motor Home Salvage yard for the harness, there are many wrecked Ford chassis equipped Motor Homes being scrapped every day. I believe the law only requires the availability of parts for 10 years after the last use of the parts in a new vehicle. I ran into that problem looking for parts for several old cars I have had over the years and only the junk yards came to my rescue. Good luck and keep us informed on the outcome please.

RE: replacement awning

Check the RV Geeks, they replaced the fabric on a motor home. https://www.thervgeeks.com/awnings-and-slide-toppers/dometic-awning-replacement/

RE: F-53 Axle vent

I just Tye Rapped a chunk of nylon stocking over the rubber tubing on the propane regulator on my Generator when I found Mud Dobbers building a nest for their young in my tube. Has been there for over 10 years now with no more problems. I have found them building nests in my Trailer plugs and any other round protected area they can find including the small channels in the awning arms. They are a pain in the rear and in some cases can cost us big bucks.

RE: Anyone interested in 83 Pace Arrow Tear down and Rebuild?

Most of the slider windows I have worked on, you pull out the plastic track top & bottom and then you can remove the slider part. A couple I had to work real hard to lift the end of the track to pull it out from the sliding glass and Once O broke the track in half. I reinstalled the broken track on the bottom and it was a few months before I found a new track at an RV Dealer.

RE: 50 to 30 to 15 amps

Just because it is a 15 amp receptacle doesn't mean it is limited to 15 amps. I have seen many 15 amp receptacles wired with #12 wire and feed from a 20 amp circuit breaker, I did that in my garage and barn and everything else I wire up personally. 15 amp receptacles use to be cheaper than 20 amp and I can change the receptacle if I need 20 amp at that spot.

RE: CAT 3126B

Said it would not CRANK, not that it won't start. I would look and listen to see if any relays are clicking, if so there would be the place to start taking meter readings to see if power is getting through. Most likely the problem is in the areas you were working in and you probably bumped a wire connection and disconnected a plug or broke a wiring connection. Do you have the chassis wiring diagram from the chassis builder? It is a great piece of paper to have and Itasca will not have modified it to much.

RE: Anyone interested in 83 Pace Arrow Tear down and Rebuild?

I doubt it would cure as the aluminum acts like the can it is stored in and unless you wanted to wait for several years for the atmosphere to penitrate the thin gap sealed along the edges I doubt the effrot is worth the time.

RE: Anyone interested in 83 Pace Arrow Tear down and Rebuild?

Check this out for your P-Traps, eliminates the Anti-freeze requirement for winterizing. https://hepvo.com/ I am in the process of replacing my P-Traps with the Hepvo traps and am very happy with them. I have even installed one in the basement sink at home. Not sure it is legal from the local building inspetors point of view, but I don't plan on asking him. I found out about these traps at an RV show where a couple of Motor Home had them installed from the factory and I thought it should be standard equipment.

RE: New RV- need Roadside Assistance??

If you have a car, I would NOT recommend the FMCA Plan. I stuffed my car into a snow bank and when I called for assistance I was told I had an accident and that was not covered. I explained the car was not damaged and all I need was a winch out and was again told that was not covered. When I ask what was covered I was told flat tires and running out of gas. When I called Coach Net and explained what happened and if I would be covered, they assured me that is part of the coverage plan I had previously. Needless to say, FMCA was dumped and I reinstated my Coach Net plan. When I contacted FMCA about the deficiency in the plan, they investigated it and were surprised I was not covered. maybe in the future it will be a better plan with decent coverage, but that deficiency cost me $195.00 out of pocket. My Coach New renewal was $169.00 per year. A lot more expensive than FMCA, but I know I am covered. Having used Coach Net to extract my Coach from my Muddy Front yard once I feel I will be better off where I am now insured.

RE: Anyone interested in 83 Pace Arrow Tear down and Rebuild?

Are you spray foaming the cracks while you wait for the M-1 to cure or doing it after the bracing is removed?

RE: Anyone interested in 83 Pace Arrow Tear down and Rebuild?

Make sure you subtract the finished floor height from the published dimensions in the pictures. I made that mistake on a similar project in my basement. Looking good so far.
sundancer268 01/24/19 04:12am Class A Motorhomes

Looks like an old crack with what I think I see is rust where the metal cracked. This probably has been growing for a while if it was a fresh break there would be a bright shine to the broken pieces.

RE: To Brake assist or not to brake assist ?

My Ford Focus weighs less than 3000 pounds (2920) last weighing and I noticed a big difference in the stopping capabilities last year when I installed the Air Force One. I had towed the Focus since 2009 when I got the coach and was hard pressed to justify the $1000 plus for the brake system. I am glad I did install it and will transfer it to the new toad this spring when I decide on what I am going to buy.

RE: Chassis Batteries

Mine were new in May 2009 and worked well when I put her to sleep for the winter. Coach is plugged in to power year around with the BIRD keeping the house and coach batteries topped off. I expect it will start up just fine in April or May when I can get it out of the barn. If it wont, I will boost it from the house bank and then replace. The house batteries lasted me eight years so I expect in the next few years I will be replacing the chassis batteries. I will not replace until they fail as I can't be left stranded if the house bank is available. I also carry jumper cables so I can use the toad to charge either bank as needed to get something running.
