  1. I had to replace my right rear Power Gear hyd jack also - same symptoms as you describe - bought new one for $325 from Visone RV - P/N 500759 - and had my local RV tech install - approx 2 hours labor as I recall - may want to go this route --- Nick
  2. Have you cleaned your Mass Air Flow Sensor ? How long have you owned coach ? How many miles on coach ? Which O2 sensor is failing ? I've experienced limp mode - not a pleasurable experience !!
  3. Agree with pvgsma - we went in 2013 with Fantasy RV Tours - 60 days, 5700 miles and unlimited memories - established great friendships, saw things we probably would not have done by ourselves, traveled with very experienced RV's who could fix almost anything that broke during the journey - would highly recommend this way of seeing AK and western Canada - the Calgary Stampede was one of the highlights of this Caravan - I could go on for hours re the enjoyable time we experienced - Time and $$ well spent !! We also now live in FL but left SC in 2013 to catch the Caravan tour which started in ID --
  4. We did the AK 60 day tour with Fantasy in the summer of 2013 - best decision we ever made -- Time and $$ well spent - We had a great wagon master and tail gunner - hope yours is enjoyable as ours was -- Enjoy the sights !!
  5. Would help greatly if you indicated the coach brand, age, and what work you are in need of -- You can add the specifics of your coach to your signature line for clarity going forward -
  6. I use Coach Net - never had to call them for assistance but other owners have given them high praise when their assistance was needed ---
  7. Manholt - I do have a DW and we get by fine with making small quantities of ice in small trays as I mentioned above. We also avoid areas where the temp is above 100 degrees ---
  8. Need more detail - what brand coach, year, etc so we can help !!
  9. Correct size ice trays are available at Camping World - or buy a small bag of ice at a grocery store and break it up and keep it in the freezer - how much ice does one need ??
  10. Our ice maker leaks - so we just fill small ice cube trays with store bought water - really easy fix for us !!

    Why haven't you used it ? It works well for small loads but not for big ones of course -- I assume you have a Splendide model ??
  12. Two thumbs up for the SMI Duo system !! Has worked flawlessly after being utilized for 24k miles including AK and Western CN - Highly recommend a dash "red" light being installed to indicate when system is activated and please, have a Professional install this if you are not handy !! Better to be safe than sorry !!
  13. Well said Brett - we went with Fantasy to Alaska and Western Canada 2 summers ago for the 60 day tour - Best $$ and time ever spent - developed new friends for life!! Wagon Master and Tailgunner were outstanding!! Could not have asked for a better experience!!
  14. I also have a portable surge guard and always, when plugged into the pedastal, wrap a garbage bag over the surge guard, and then bungee cord it in place to protect from the elements. Has worked well during the past 2 years.
  15. If all else fails, try contacting Fleetwood for their advice and suggestions ---
  16. I also used a front bra cover - covering the windshield, hood, fenders and front end - can't recall the mfg name - bought it used as it is vehicle specific - used it for our caravan tour in Can and AK 2 summers ago - worked very well !! No chips or broken glass, no chips from gravel roads - it does take 2 to mount correctly and does take some effort - especially in the rain - then must dry it out when removed - Does take extra work but worth the effort !!
  17. We used Fantasy RV Tours 2 years ago - to visit Western CN and AK - 60 days, 5700 miles and the best decision we ever made - trip of a lifetime !! People do it by themselves but this all inclusive Caravan tour was time and money well spent - PM me for more details if you want --
  18. I also have a Sterling All Terrain tow system with matching base plate - when on a caravan tour of AK and Western Canada 2 summers ago, the "cross bar" on the base plate became bent when flying over an unmarked frost heave in AK - after the tour was over, we worked our way down the West Coast and actually stayed in their facility overnight while they attended to replacing this crossbar and installing a more accurate drop down hitch - Very accomodating personnel and a huge manufacturing facility as over 90 % of their products are made there !! Could not have asked for more service from an American supplier ---
  19. Try and get off the interstates to really see the USA - we found the "back roads" a lot more enjoyable at a slower pace - remember, you are riding on springs and shocks but the incremental cost to go to airbags is a huge leap forward in my opinion -- Our Pace Arrow is similar to yours - fully loaded and we do hit a few bumps but that is part of the journey !!
  20. I've used Blue Sky Ins for the past 3 years - one awning damage claim (wind gust damage) handled effortlessly with a couple of pics - replaced 5 months later in Las Vegas (my request) as we were on a Caravan tour of AK and Western Canada at the time - I've only experienced a nominal rate increase - others have reported larger increases - a lot of variables go into insurance quotes - send me a pm and I can give you further details - sounds like you have a great plan worked out in a reasonable timeframe -- enjoy the journey !!
  21. Desertdeals69 - thanks for the info --how could they design a unit with such small tolerances ?
  22. What is the leveling issue? Front to back or side to side??
  23. Ditto above comments - I've experienced several Reverse Polarity issues and move to another spot or have RV Park repair pedestal --
  24. I used the Michelin Program about 2 years ago in the Savannah GA area and saved over $500 for 6 tires for my coach - They are quality !! Of course, compare quotes of Toyo vs Michelins and include the tire removal, disposal, balancing etc before you reach a decision --
