Service and Parts for National RV products

Recommended Posts

My brother-in-law owns a 1999 (on 2000 chasis) Dolphin. He needs to find some parts but doesn't know where to start. I thought I had read somewhere that one of the manufacturers was picking up parts for National. Is that true? Who? Where? Help!!!!!

This FMCA chapter has done an excellent job of compiling just such information:

I have tried to find the tie rod ends and the mechanic is waiting for a steering part which has to be installed as well to replace / fix tie rod and some of the bushings.

They had to order it out of "old/new stock" from Washington State a couple of weeks ago.

Sorry for the generic answer as I am not a mechanic. I have some mechanical common sense but not enough to repair this size rig.

Thank you for the help. Yes we recently joined FMCA and are looking at the many options.

Stump,

Welcome to the Forum.

Might I suggest that if you have the "Tie Rod Ends" off that you take them to a NAPA store and ask them if they can come up with a part # that will work. The ones I have dealt with in the past love a challenge.

If my memory serves we, most front end part on a P-30 chassis are GM parts.

Good luck,

Herman
