  1. Need parts- go see your Case/IH dealer.
  2. If you plugged into a 15/20 amp outlet you probably tripped the GFI. Even 30 or 50amp outdoor circuits may have GFIs. In some locales building codes require them. Almost all MHs are miswired. There can be no connection between ground and neutral in the MH. If on the end of your power plug you place an ohm meter and measure between neutral and ground and you meter go to zero you are miswired. You will not be able to use any GFI protected electrical circuit. In many cases the mfg did no use a ground switching inverter. You need to correct this if you plan on using any state or federal campgrounds as many are putting GFIs on the 30 & 50 amp circuits.
  3. Nope! Except in very strong cross winds. We own a 1992 30' Barth Breakaway with spring suspension. A very enhanced 5.9B (300HP) and converted to an Allison 2000 transmission. Pulling a Suzuki Gran Vitari we get just under 11mpg usually running about 70mph. We average about 12K miles per year as we live in Yuma, AZ and our kids are on the other side of the big hills. The ride is firm but not uncomfortable and even with the long heavy overhang in the rear it is stable except in strong cross winds. Actually pulling a vehicle helps as it tends to keep the Barth going straight down the road. We have had MHs since 1978, so we are not new comers to this. I also converted a GM4106 and we also currently own a 43.5' Newell that is for sale.
  4. My answer to a drain pan is a 10 gallon blue boy. Fits under the engine and has the capacity to to handle 7 gallons. But the caps back on and haul it to a recycle center.
  5. I have used Sprint for years, both for voice and data. I have found nothing better yet. As for speed, around major metropolitan areas you will find high speed (2-3mb) and other areas it will be about 2-3 times faster than dial up. I only use it tied to my laptop. Surfing the net on a cell phone screen does not appeal to me.
  6. Very quick and to the point. Non-vented dryers are junk. Check around and you will not find one happy user.
  7. I have a 12valve 5.9 Cummins with both a Band intake manifold and turbo charger. In addition I replaced the fuel plate in the pump and installed larger injectors. I have the HP set at about 300HP even though this setup will produce up to 375HP.
