  1. Please need a engineer to come down to a layman understanding, how it effects and how it all works. Ok lets start with the Firestone Air bags on the rear springs.So you see that the motor home is leaning on the right side . You add more air to the air bags (on the right side) and level the rig .In the process you have changed the wheel alignment of the front end. Now , you get the 4 corner weights. time for checking tire pressures. BUT ! !Lets go back to the Air Bag. SHOULD THE AIR BAGS HAVE THE SAME PRESSURES . LEFT AND RIGHT.? And if not, does this put a twist on the frame ?It would think weight needs to be move around , by hand: to level out the coach.Than maybe move weight from the rear to the front by increasing the pressures in the air bags? DO THEY HAVE TO WORK IN PAIRS? Would this be the right thing to do before a wheel alignment? Okay , what do others do ? Tim the Mailman Winnebago Class C 3 slides 2014 32 ft long. Cambria
  2. Keep it simple check fluid level. Than start looking for leaks, than the device controller . Phone the company customer service . I had a problem with another brand it was fix with a part replacement , phone call away zero charged. Tim the mailman
  3. Well, lets get down to basic's . What kind of motor oil are you using? The only oil to use in the Ford V-10 is 5 W 20. The oil returns in the engine are small, which is the reason for 5 W 20. Hope there is no restriction in the engine. Check to make sure you check what kind of oil filter to use. I have a Ford V -10 in my motor home. The dip stick is really in a bad spot first to find it than making sure it is seated. Without measuring it, I believe a yard long. I Use the Ford 5 W 20 oil, stays very clean even with 5000 miles on it. I change mine between 3000 - 5000 miles. I think WE need get the basic out of the way, why is the oil not returning to the pan, use of weight of oil. The V-10 Ford requires oil changes on a schedule. Tim the Mailman N8AHK
  4. Thanks for reading. Have already taken 1-70 Ohio to Iowa in the past. I will not subject my Motor Home to that road again. Has anyone used 1-40 to go east-west from Nashville Tenn to Albuquerque NM . Any status info we all should be known before we set up a trip to used 1-40. Detours, road concerns etc. Tim the Mailman Winnebago Class C 32 ft Tow car HHR Chevy 2011.
  5. In the world of GPS today, I am curious what is the best GPS to buy? Features a way to import the trip to the device. Maybe we should address software and Hardware. Tim the Mailman
  6. Some times you have to make sure to hold the in button in at the time it seats so the motors re time. Check for items under the Topper , outside. Tim the Mailman
  7. I am looking for some one who tow this vehicle . I remember issue's concerning Jeep's. My rig is a Winnebago Cambria 30 J 2014 V-10 Ford. I can not find info concerning fuse's that have to removed while pulling. Maybe you do not have to concern this. I need a Elmer. Maybe one concern what hitch to use Tim the Mailman
  8. I was wondering could some one cover a topic travel trailers ,5th wheel, bus , semi's and semi trailers, and anything recreational W H A T IS T I R E LIFE FOR THEM? I have never seen this covered HUM ! Tim the mailman
  9. Just a little update With research the Winegard Trav'ler dish sk1000 or directv swm-3 can be interchange on the top end with kits to change with either system. BUT use the main unit on the roof. So, I have a SD G3 on the roof at this time. BUT with the providers playing with SD or HD at this time you the customer has to be able to change with them. So I believe the Winegard Trav'ler is the best option for installing one time to the roof, or upgrading the hardware on the fly. This is the reason for thinking out loud. The problem is finding a clear 44" by 34" clear Flat spot in roof area on the class C to install the system. I have a Class C Winnebago 32 ft Itasca Cambria 30J, with the sky light close by on the roof, this is going to be interesting to say the least. Thanks for all the reads. Is there any Class C units out there that run this setup? Tim the mailman Retired 40 years carrier
  10. I am looking for a camper with a Class C that uses a Trav'ler Winegard Sat Antenna. First problem is finding a open space 44"by 34" area. My Class C is a Winnebago Cambria 2014 30J. Just not to sure of clearance and trees above the roof at almost 3 feet. So if you run this setup on a Class C I need some advice. Thanks for reading Tim the mailman
  11. gfbrower I was wondering does the manual have any thing maintenance? that being the pivot points. I am planing to buy a Trav'ler SWM-3 for Directv for my use. We would think clean and oil it some where. Is it binding. ? Tim the Mailman
  12. I also am confused what to do about the future of equipment TV with the recreational vehicle. With the thoughts of SD going out of signals and HD the one to be the future, for TV on the road will require research. We to believe the Trav'ler Dish or DirectV might be the way to go. Upon reading they do both SD and HD, and the list of equipment available for use with the Trav'ler Directv or Dish is listed at the Winegard Web site. SO, do check the hardware equipment needed for a SYSTEM to work with RV.. The system I have at the moment is only SD. There should a lot of discussion concerning this topic, and costs to bare.

  13. This is a update to my original post. This applies to Directv only. I just got off the phone call with a REP with Winegard Corp Office in Iowa . If you have a SD receiver Directv , they are being replaced by only HD receivers . They are phasing out SD in the future. If you are concern about this the Trav'ler Winegard for Directv can received both SD and HD, This was my understanding of the topic. Tim the Mailman
  14. It has been on the internet concerning Directv no longer in the future not to host SD. This would mean maybe we all should keep in mine to get ready for HD only for our camping needs,with Direct TV. So, if we have a SD setup Directv on the roof of the motor home, how much trouble to convert to a HD system.? Would everything have to be replace? For instance ,HD TV, a receiver Box, and a new Sat dish. Will One have to modify the roof to hold all the weight of a bigger Sat Dish? Has any one with a trailer , motor home try to update their system. Tim the Mailman Class C Winnebago Itasca Cambria 2014 32 ft long 3 slides
  15. SNOW SNOW GO AWAY COME BACK ANOTHER DAY I have a Class C Winnebago Itasca Cambria 32 ft. 2014. We have a spare on a steel rim in the hatch back storage area. Some time in the fall we had to remove the inside dual rear tire, because of a broken valve stem. We have Aloca Mags on the outside wheel positions. Make sure if you call for a AAA service make sure to explain you need a big truck with air tools. Those nuts are set at 150 lb-ft? I have never check the spare tire for air pressure 20 PSI is a long way to 80PSI. SO, if you have a space check its tire pressure. No good having a SPARE if you have a FLAT as one. SO when you check tire pressures include all tires that being a spare. I was lucky they have air on there RIG.. My stems are solid metal stems. Tim the mailman
