  1. I changed out my radiator when I did my engine swap. It was all nuts and bolts. I used a 1000 lb jack table and It worked good. I exchanged out my mechanical 5.9 Cummins and 4 speed Allison for a ISB Cummins 275 and a Allison MD3060 6 speed. The new engine took a larger radiator and CAC. I drove that coach for 150,000 miles in 16 years and just sold it in April.
  2. I don't know what the big deal is about letting trailers in. At Perry 2011 I was crew leader for family electric and I also parked a group of trailers. There have been trailers since then.
  3. On my last motorhome I selected three different brands of tvs so I wouldn't have the remote control conflict. With the cheap prices on the new tvs replacing one is not that expensive. I saw a 32 inch at Walmart for $125.
  4. Thats one of the reasons you don't shut down a hot turbo.
  5. There are GFCI made all amp ratings. On one of the 30 amp service in front of Mike's Custom Painting there is a GFCI.
  6. The weight of each corner determines the correct cold pressure. The chart that each brand of tire has will list the correct pressure. The heaviest position on each axle is the determining pressure for the tires on that axle.
  7. I'm Chinese and I'm on the technical advisory committee. I was one of the founders of the Colorado River Ramblers in 1981.
  8. I don't think there would be more new trailer owners that would join than current members who would drop out.
  9. The way they are made is with a sand mold filled with molten aluminum. If you can find a foundry that does sand casting all you need is the pattern. The pattern is made out of wood. The one foundry that I know of is in Dollywoods craftsmen alley. I spoke to them and they said they would cast one in aluminum if I brought in the pattern.
  10. My Surge Guard takes about 137 seconds to turn on, the count down is shown on the readout panel.
  11. What kind of wear? With 39K there shouldn't be enough wear to cause replacement. Check shocks, alignment, balance. Check with Les Swab, I got the tire you are using, on the FMCA plan from them in Warrenton on the coast.
  12. I would use a spout that screws onto the bottle and you can add an extension hose if needed. Some spouts have a shut off valve built in, which makes it easier to control flow.
  13. Generally probably not. I changed a steel spring diesel pusher 32 ft to air bags and the ride was very similar. What I could do is to change the ride hight front to back and side to side.
  14. I agree.
  15. Surge brakes are ok if you don't go down long steep hills as the brakes are activated constantly if you are using the exhaust brake.
