A couple of Questions

I have an 89 Fleetwood Pace Arrow. Ford 460 gas with 4 barrel and 3 speed auto. I have 4 questions:
1) The fridge is leaking the ammonia gas. I keep it closed and all is ok no smell. I now want to remove it. How do I do it without killing myself? Does anyone know how the dealer would do it?
2) Tires say max 110psi. Sticker inside says max 70psi. Should I go by the inside sticker or the tires?
3) I need 4 dash board style switches. I want the same look so they match the stock ones. Does anyone know where I can get them from?
4) The manual calls for Type H tranny fluid. I cannot find it anywhere. Does anyone know where to get it from?

Thank-You
Bob

1) You may be able to disassemble the fridge enough to get it out the door. If not, a window or windahield will have to be removed.

2)Use the 70 psi until you can get it weighed and check the tire inflation tables for the correct psi for thre weight on each axle. The psi on the tire sidewall is for the max weight the tire can carry, not the recommended psi of the tire.

3) Try the RV Salvage yards. Here is a list of some of them:
RV Salvage & Parts

4) Type H is an old Ford spec, no longer in use. Ford's Mercon or Mercon V (or equivalent) is the substitute.

I would check the rims for a maximum weight @ pressure. No matter what load range tires are installed, the rims are the limiting factor.

Fridge: you will need to replace the cooling unit, you may wish to replace the whole unit, I do not (yet) know how to remove them and the directions are somewhat rig-specific.

Tires: The tires do not say Max Pressure 110 PSI
They say somethign like Max Load 22,000 pounds at Max Pressure of 110 PSI.. IT is important to have the pressure match the load on the tire. RV Safety, Merritt Island, Florida and make an appointment to have the rig weighed, they will tell you the proper pressure.. I can all but guarantee it won't be the pressure on the sticker, nor the one stamped in the sidewall.. Usually in between.

I see the switch question has been answered

Type "H" Transmission fluid is a FORD specification so try a FORD dealer. I did find a link to a "Universial" product
Lubrication Specialties, Inc. but since all I know about it is a fraction of what's on the page linked to I can NOT recommend either for or against. I typed "Type H Transmission Fluid" without quotes into the Google search bar by the way and learned all I wished to know about it a few seconds later.

My 89 Pace had a door large enough for th e frig. Seems like I had to take the doors off the frig and it went out side ways. It is a two person job to get it out and a new one in.

Tire pressure is always a concern for me. Where do I go to get my rig weighed?

Many truck stops have scales and the cost is usually under $10. Local moving companies, sand & gravel yards, feed stores, grain silos and such often have scales as well. Check the Yellow pages and ask around - you will find one.
