So far I have crushed two empty pop bottles and one small pot. We now do a careful check before closing the slide.

I now have a small dent in the side of the bed frame. I had to pull the slides in to go get propane. No one will deliver and a sack of glass jars of body cream apparently got wedged between the bed and the slide. Didn't break the jars (thank goodness) but put a nice dent in the luan.

Never put the jacks down in a icy blizzard. Spent three hours chipping the ice off the jacks with a tea kettle and screwdriver!

Great tip, not sure I would have thought of that ahead of time.

There is a better way to do that.. A steam cleaner.

However if you DO put the jacks down in the wintertime.. Put a block of something under them..

Here is why
I've seen jacks freeze to the ground.. Alas, it can be a real.. Er.. Witch.. to get 'em up when that happens. Even on a class A where they don't get freezing rained on.

But if you put a block of something under 'em often that wont' get wet on top, so the jacks won't freeze, The block will stick to the ground.. But a couple of gentle taps with the 8 pounder usually breaks them loose (That's a sledge hammer folks) if that don't work.. I have a 12 pounder too.

Admitting an error

Setting up in a tight spot I checked that the drivers rear slide would clear the power box and the fawcett was low so no worries. It would be under the slide.
I connected up the power water and sewer. Turned on the water - all good so far. Went inside and extended the slides.
Anybody see where this is going??
The handle on the Fawcett contacted and dented the slide., luckily didn't need a plumber as the spigot was only slightly bent.

I'm am absolutely beating myself up about it. Particularly after spending months researching MH's and the last two weeks studying the hell out of the Freightliner and Cat to end up with a Workhorse and Cummins.
Cummins in a Workhorse chassis? Is it a front engine diesel? If it's a DP you have a FL or Spartan chassis.

We did that once in a Wal*Mart parking lot after the State Patrol closed I-5. The pads were frozen to the pavement (but no ice on the rams). I got out my "pickle fork" to break them loose after the first one broke free with a "BANG". Nothing broken though and the pad went back on easily.

If you are going to have beans for dinner, do not sit close to the LPG detector. It can and will go off. Then it is too late to blame the dog.

I had a over the window bedroom awning installed on my last coach. Some how I got my checklist screwed up and drove off with it down. The wife was driving the toad as we were only going a few miles. She wavedy over and pointed it out. I told her that I had left it that way to dry it off as I drove. She didn't buy it.

It is an 8.3L 330 Cummins ISL. Chassis is a Workhorse, i still need to get the model number. All this information is in my owners case. It must weigh 15 pounds. I really would like a good resource for the Cummins engine. Seems Corporate dose not have older motors documentation online

I found the information in the 2006 WCC Chassis guide. Page 209 is on the R32 Series DP chassis. It lists one 29500 GVRW with the Cummins 8.3L 330hp motor. So for your apparent disbelieve, yea WCC does make a DP chassis.
