1983 Fleetwood Pace Arrow

I am doing this for my friend who was given this Pace Arrow and we are possibly moving from CA to MS in July of this year. I was wondering how big the gas tank is and does it take Diesel or regular fuel. Her refrigerator is not working as well and would it be cheaper to replace the unit or have it repaired???

Any information would be greatly appreciated.

What does it read on the fuel gage and most have right there at the fill tank what kind of fuel it takes, as for the fridge I would put a residential fridge in

Look in the engine compartment, if it has spark plugs it is a gas engine, probably a big 454 V8? If the fridge is a 3 way, you won't believe what it costs to fix or replace it, if it needs a new cooling unit!
Lots of good information on the forum here, I am sure someone will offer some advice on the fridge.

Pace Arrow

We have a 1982 Pace Arrow. Gas, 454 4 bbl. 48,000 miles.Gennie has around 175 hours on it We have 2 gas tanks a 70 gal and a 30gal there are 2 doors on the passenger side the front tank is a 30 gal and the rear is the 70 gal.. There should be a switch on the dash for them.
I am not sure how you would put a residential fridge in that little space
Our fridge is a 2 way and its a original , electric (don't work very good) and propane works great.
Just a FYI if there is a emergency start switch, on the dash under the start key,also on a single battery in case you ware down the house batteries, you have to push the button first then turn the key and it should fire right off if the battery is good.I had to use it last year and I am glad the battery was good (A must in my book) especially if you plan on Boondocking.
I really don't think there is much difference between a 82 and a 83 but I could be wrong.
Enjoy, Tim
