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

Unless you are going to start with flat stock and weld them to the required angle, no. You will be hard pressed to find a shear/bender longer than 48". Most cheap benders will only do 90 degrees without a jig to go farther. Then if it is anything thicker than sheet metal, it may facture due to how it is made. You could try the Armstrong method, but it may not be a good look, or uniform.

RE: Voltage or Ground

What is going on? Why are we at each others throats? Aren't we trying to help each other, or is Russia changing out posts? LOL.

RE: Ford 7.3L V8 Power Numbers & They Are Lower Than We Thought!

I agree on that. I believe that is a vastly under estimated power plant.

RE: Interesting article: Tesla Semi Electric Motorhome.

Reisender, maybe I was just cheery picking the info, it was a little confusing from one paragraph to another. You are a better man than I finding the true honest websites that are giving true reports. I have searched and didn't get a warm fuzzy feeling from most of them. Some seemed to be copied from others, but hey, it is the internet.

JR, you would have been better off putting a 390 in it instead of the 360. The 360 really had a bad rep in the ford pickups as being gutless and a gas eater. Quite a few people put a car 390 in place of the 360 and were very happy with the increase power and mileage.

RE: Interesting article: Tesla Semi Electric Motorhome.

Reisender, your links do not contain much information about actual sales of all cars, like less than 160 EVs for the month. How many cars are usually sold in a month in Ca.? I don't know about the UK, but the probably quit plugging in because of the way it ran the electric bill up. Now Germany is a different story. Quite a few of the upper class have purchased plug-ins, but do not go far from home because of lack of charging stations, or not knowing where they may be. Hybrids on the other hand, are in great demand. Used one are near nonexistent. Germany saw that they would loose taxes on fuel with EVs, so they have put a penalty on the purchase of them, but it does not end there. Since the own a EV, they added a surcharge on their electric bill. My information if from someone that lives there, not a website. It seems your Damned if you do, and Damned if you don't.

RE: Ford 7.3L V8 Power Numbers & They Are Lower Than We Thought!

if you all remember the big ford 460 truck engine it was the biggest gas gushier ford made and don't think that will change in the new engine. False. Back when "Super Duty" on the side of the hood ment there was a 850 in the VIN, (F850) Ford had a 477, and 534 CID. I had one of each. Either would pull Jesus off the cross, but a GMC 427 could pull right with them, and burn less gas. One place the new engine might box a diesels ears is if it can run on compressed natural gas, might get the same work done at much lower cost.The 460 was a gas eater because of the way Ford had to set it up to pass emissions. With the correct timing chain set, so the cam is straight up, and some other corrections, it was a powerhouse and didn't do bad on MPGs either. Unless you are talking about the poly head 427, GMs real powerhouse was the 454 hands down, and wasn't a nightmare to work on.

RE: Interesting article: Tesla Semi Electric Motorhome.

Lots of politicians have made millions with this global warming stuff and to me thats all it is. Is the earth changing? Sure it is and has since the beginning. Must have been camp fires cave men used during the ice ages that started it.:S This has been my argument. I believe that if you burn wood it still emits carbon. So, billions of campfires would do what to the atmosphere? About what China is doing to it today.... And running a genny to not run your own engine? Seems counter-intuitive. WW Kinda why Hibrid sales are falling fast and BEV sales are rising.Say what? Most manufactures are increasing the hybrid lines. Lets see, 40+ mpg on the highway, mid to high 30s in town. What are the down sides again? Where do you get your information?

Are you sure you can't make it work with some canvas and POR?I was referring to the cruiser as a joke, sorry.

RE: Dometic a/c

The compressor should shut off before the fan. The compressor will cycle on and off as temp. nears the set-point. If both the compressor and fan are cycling on and off, there is more than likely an interruption of power to the unit. Start by checking you supply breakers for the AC. Could be some loose wiring.

RE: Ford 7.3L V8 Power Numbers & They Are Lower Than We Thought!

Well, if you think a larger displacement engine, producing more power, is going to get better mileage, good for you. You can run them really lean, and get a large amount of power, until all of the aluminum is burned up. That usually does not turn out good. A larger engine that runs easer, but uses more fuel, yes, but don't kid yourselves. Ford developed a large V8 in the late 60s, 537 CID, but they did not turn out well. Machine shops seem to like them though. Not saying their new engine will turn out the same, but this is not any new for ford.

RE: Interesting article: Tesla Semi Electric Motorhome.

But but there are no tailpipe emissions lol https://i.imgur.com/axLnjTjl.jpg That’s kinda cool. Looks mostly portable. Could be setup fairly quick almost anywhere. Can’t see the manufacturer name. Would be handy in an evacuation scenario etc. Can’t tell the connecter either although it maybe a CCSActually, that goes on a trailer that you tow behind you so you do not run out of power. There is no free lunch.... If you want to save the planet, sell you RVs, buy a tent, stove and ice chest, and don't forget the 5 gallon bucket and roll of plastic bags for your waste to take home with you. If you really want to save the earth, figure a was to reduce the population by 1/2. After that you have only delayed it for a few thousand years, or whenever our Sun turns into a red star.

RE: Fleetwood ratings

That year should have been built on the "Power Bridge" platform, very solid and well handling. The roof should not lead if you keep it up and off the pavement, just like any other manufacturer's. The design is as good, or better than the others, the actual execution may not have been as expected, just like others' MHs. You are the one that must inspect it and make the decision.

RE: Generac generator quits power output...UPDATE

Yes, thanks for the follow-up, and at a reasonable price also. The repair facility seems to know what they are doing, and fairly honest.

RE: Both AC's quit.

If you need the caps in a hurry, try an H & V firm/installer. They will be more that on the interweb, but if you need them, you need them. Just like the price of fuel in out of the way places, it may be high, but a bargain if you really need it.

RE: Advice for a trip up the west coast

Second the reservations. 101 is a great drive, but slow, with lots of bad road and construction. Well worth the time and drive.

RE: Generator Issues

You have not given a time line of the repairs, but the repair should be suspect. Before you go trying to re-inventing the wheel, look on line for wiring drawings. If the gen will not carry the loads, will shore power? As others have said, the gen should carry all the loads with ease. Good luck and please get back what you find.
