A little help please.

Good Morning,

I have a family member that owns a 1990 34ft Georgie Boy Cruisaire with a 460 engine, Kohler 4.5 generator on a John Deere Chassis. He is preparing to hit the highway and has found that the unit needs a few repairs.

I would like to get some general pricing ideas from those of you that have had these type of repairs completed on your rv's. I am just looking for a range not exact quotes. We are located in Southern California but please share even if you are located in different states.

1. Replacement of King Pins
2. Generator Re-build
3. Engine Tune Up
4. Add Banks Pack to unit
5. Front Wheel Alignment

Thank You

Welcome TEEGEE1997 TO IRV2.
I had same chassis many years ago on a GB myself.
It maybe cheaper to buy a new Gen if it has not been used much or if major trouble.
You can Goggle for BANKS info for that engine and with the 460 may have broken bolt problems with cylinder heads that could be cracked. Banks is a good option had them on 3 coach's with 460 & v-10's.
I would get the realignment after you have coach weight you will be carrying.
I would shop around for king pins may have same garage put in Banks as a package.

Banks package: Way too much money for a 1990, in my opinion. The full Banks package will likely cost well over $5000 if somebody else is hired to install it. The partial Banks kits won't do enough to bother with.

Generator rebuild: Is there some problem with it? If not, change the oil and filters (air & fuel too) and go.

Front end alignment: Probably about $100 and they can tell you whether the king pins need replacing (or other front suspension parts).
