I experienced the same thing with Goodyears but when I felt the bumping I stopped and found a large bubble in the tread. Driving on this will cause the tread separation. I lost 4 of the 6 Goodyears the same way by 12000 miles. My 2003 came with Goodyears from Ford after the Firestone problems. I rep...

I have found that using a flat ended punch I can just tap the dippled spot and it will bend it back in enough to hold the nut on. I haven't lost any using this trick. :D

I had HWH Jacks installed when my coach was new at the Camping World in Salt Lake City. I also elected to go with the manual control. HWH standard Class C jacks provide a short shaft pair for the front and a longer shaft pair for the rear. My 26 RB would not alow for the longer shaft on the rear the...

If I remember right, in this forum a some time ago there was a discussion on this subject. It was stated that if different oil filter than the Onan is used you must be careful as most are to long and will strike the frame when it shuts down.

Just a thought

Bill, I had my couch replaced Back and Bottom 7-29-04 still under the 2 year warranty. They sent them no charge. The shop they hired in my town to install the foam butchered it. So they sent me new finished complete top and bottom and I put them in. (No Charge) The contact was Flexsteel Lisa Bauer 5...

I recieved one of the first coaches that came with Goodyears after the Firestone problem. At 11561 miles after losing the treads on 3 of the 4 rear tires I scrapped them for Michelin XPS and have not had any more tire trouble. Goodyear does not stand behind there tires and they are crap. They should...

Karl,
I use a window washing handle with a sheep skin round brush. It fits inside the opening above the windshield and cleans while you stand on the ground. I purchased my extension handle and brush at Lowell's in the window department. I think it was around $12.

Robert, I have had a similar problem with my V10. I get a high pitched whistle and a roar it lasts 5 to 10 seconds. It is always on a grade. The Ford dealer can't find it or get it to duplicate. It occured more with fewer miles. I have 13500 miles and it is now less frequent. MotorHome magazine had ...

Mike, I purchased 2 compartment locks from BF-Kim Olson a few years back. They are easy to install if you just watch how they come off. I put one on the gas door and one on the battery compartment. :D

Larry & Sharon

When you switched to 6 volt batterys was there any problem with the factory parallax converter? Will it work ok with the 6 volt parallel wiring?

Tim, the switch cuts the power from the battery off. It is the same as disconnecting the battery terminals. The shore line bypasses the batterys and everything runs off the 110 converter. Therfore the charge can't return to the batterys. Is this as clear as mud? Sombody with more tech. knowledge cou...
