RE: Bearing puller for utility trailer

Just use a brass drift and hammer to remove the races. It is soft and will not harm the race or hub.

RE: How much anti-freeze?

As an aside, I learned last winter not to dilute RV anti-freeze with water. Here in Nevada cold is a little below zero. The housing that holds my RV water filter froze and broke inside the plumbing compartment. So we don't confuse the OP or other readers, I ASSUME you are referring to the POTABLE water system anti-freeze. The OP is dealing with the engine coolant and DOES get to 50/50 coolant concentrate/distilled water.

RE: Alaskan Marine Highway Experience?

Juneau is the closest city to Glacier Bay NP and tours of the park can be arranged from there. An option is to drive to Skagway and take the Alaska Marine Highway down to Juneau. Probably just do it as a walk on unless spending enough time in Juneau to warrant taking your toad or even coach. BTW, there are other equally spectacular glacial areas further north if you are headed further into Alaska. Glacier Bay is not as spectacular as it was even a decade ago. Many of the tide water glaciers (the ones that calf) have receded so they calf on land, not into the water. This was of May 2023 when we last visited.

RE: Doris is Dead!

Yup,15/20 OR 30 OR 50 amp shore power? Was the CG breaker tripped? What is Alternating Current voltage when heavy loads are turned on? Very likely this is something that can be easily diagnosed, but only with FACTS.

RE: Steering problem...looking for ideas/causes

Tie rod ends can get play in them. That allows the toe-in to change rather than being locked in at, say 1/8" toe-in.

RE: Chaffed & leaking fuel lines in your motor coach? beware!

Replacing fuel lines is NOT technical, but indeed takes time. Many of us have done it ourselves. Cost of fuel line itself is not excessive. You hire out the labor, THAT is a different story. And, yes fuel line degradation at that age is kind of expected.

RE: AIRBAG LIFE

Any thoughts on cost to replace the airbags? Since you have an AIR SUSPENSION on our DP, you need to look at replacements with the same/another replacement of equal quality air bag. Are you seeking a parts only cost? If parts and labor, your location will likely have a big impact on $$.

RE: Chaffed & leaking fuel lines in your motor coach? beware!

You need to replace ALL the fuel lines (engine, generator, supply and return). 25+ year old rubber fuel hose is an accident waiting to happen. Not only fuel LEAKS, but on the suction side of the lift pump (tank to life pump), any opening will allow AIR into the fuel system. Can easily leave you on the side of the road.

RE: AIRBAG LIFE

Reality is if you are going to keep the coach, probably a good idea to replace them. Going to sell in the next year or so-- no. A third option is to carry a spare front and rear and wait for a failure (probably on the side of the road). I have had bags last over 10 years on dump trucks, and end-dumps. Much more severe duty than MH likely to get. When the guy that bought my '95 Pete dismantled it to build the Western Star kit he replaced the bags. 2 out of 4 where original. Over 3 million miles, and a lot of them running 95 PSI to carry the load. Rubber ages by both use and TIME. 22+ year old rubber has suffered more degradation than would occur in just 10 years. Remember to add to coach model year for component age-- manufacturing process of bags, storage at manufacturing facility before shipping, storage at chassis maker, age on chassis before shipped to coach builder............ Another issue that each owner needs to weigh is breakdown on the road VS preventive maintenance. No one answer fits all. Budget, how long coach will be kept, tightness of schedule, etc are all factors.

RE: Allison transmission fluid change interval.

And be aware that it takes 2 changes of transynd before you can use the duty cycle of synthetic rather than generic transmission fluid. Correct. If this is the first synthetic change, per Allison, the change interval remains the same as for non-synthetic oil.

RE: Allison transmission fluid change interval.

Assuming this is an Allison 3000 series, most cost effective is: 5 gallon pail of Allison 668 Transynd. That will leave you about 1 quart left over. An Allison filter kit-- take your transmission model/serial number in with you to get the correct filters/gaskets-- kit is complete. The model/serial number is on a tag on the driver's side of the transmission. About the only thing you need is a bucket and an inch-pound torque wrench. Easy DYI job.

RE: Dometic Dm2852 eyebrow board bypass info needed

The board "runs" on 12VDC, whether on propane or 120 VAC. No 12VDC and it will NOT work on either heat source.

RE: supersteer-ss401-rear-trac-bar-for-ford-f53-

If you do a bunch of reading you will find that the rear track bar does not make a lot of difference, maybe for older units it could. Rear track bar/panhard rod IS a good idea and gives increasing benefits as REAR OVERHANG is longer= more "tail wagging the dog".

RE: P-30 series air bag info

y point was, a LOT of P-30 owners think the air bags are ride comfort like rear air bags and they are NOT. Doug CORRECT. The front air bags are an integral part of the P30 front suspension and are critical for wheel alignment. Set too far from recommended PSI to achieve correct height dimension between A arms and particularly if the bags don't hold air can lead to very rapid tire wear and handling issues.

RE: fan belt number

Give Freightliner, Gaffney a call with your VIN. It also may be in your Freightliner owners manual. Freightliner 800 385-4357.

RE: Air Bag Cost

So I'm wondering if my problem is with the airbags or with the system that feeds them the air. Any thoughts out there??? Yes, a leak in the supply side, ride height valve or air bag will give exactly the same "loss of PSI". A spray bottle with kiddie bubbles will help you identify the leak(s). But with 20+ year old rubber air bags, if you are going to keep the coach, time to replace them.
