Hi All;
Sitting in the dealers parking lot in Forest City. 1900 miles in three days.

Ron - definitely laughing at the/your situation, absolutely not at you. We are all subject to the drive by's and the situation was too much for my tongue in cheek humor. Seriously if you can get your wife to agree to let you get some parts for installing the lazy susan let me know. I will tell Janet and see if I can get some extras as well.

Nice work on the ceiling Terry. I really like it. Far cry from the standard white you see everywhere else. The colors are going to make your unit very welcoming and cozy.

The coach ran well except for the check emission light came on. Stopped at Freightliner and they could not look at it until tomorrow. Have an appointment here for the coach tomorrow. Service writer says no worries you can still drive it unless more engine lights come on. Hour later the light went out. Any ideas?

We got all the way here without driving in the rain. Saw evidence of rain on the highway a couple times and there is lots of water sitting in the fields in Iowa. Clouding over and we may get some later, sure feels like it.

Agree with Paradox. What he did not say was the last 10% takes 90% of the time. If you save some of the last bits you can do them when you have nothing to do and get bored. Thankfully the last bits will soon be forgotten.

Going to have a nap and then a sleep. At the service desk at 7:30 tomorrow.

Have a great evening everyone.

What is a CLACer?
What a difference a few panels make!
Gordon, that is an airplane builders mantra..just when you think you are about done you realize all the little details take as much time as the first half! Haha

Good Morning, Sunshine today!! working on the plumbing and heating systems today maybe I can put them to bed today. Gordon, glad you made it where you are to get things looked at, does the new MH have to regen? its a diesel right? We just didn't like the plainness of a standard white ceiling so we had decided to try this headliner material, a little daunting at first but it really was quite easy. Ed, a CLACer is someone who Can't Leave it Alone Club the thread is in the just Conversation Section. Popeye you are correct there is always something. Frank, thanks, it is getting closer, if my funds hold out we'll be okay .

Hi Terry;
I do not think there is a regen on the system. It injects DEF (diesel exhaust fluid) into the exhaust. At least I think that is all it needs. Back to the books to check for more information.

Gordon, I don't know alot about the "new" diesels, I stopped driving them just as we were getting them in, and I never did work on them. Know enough to be dangerous .

No worries. I will get it in to Freightliner at some point. I will also ask our grandson. He works for KW.

Gordon,
The biggest problem is that the technology of those things isn't up to the EPA regulations that demand it. That is one of the reasons that CAT quit making engines for the on road market. Too much hassle and not enough technology to meet the EPA mandates. Anyway I hope that they get you fixed up.
Terry,
It looks like you are almost ready for Eleanor and paint in the bedroom. I like the looks of that front, it is different and looks cool.
Frank

These new diesels are the main reason I am still driving my 2000 Dodge Diesel Pickup. It's a 24 valve with 200,000 miles now. It looks and drives like it did when I bought it. And I've taken care of it since day one.

It wants for nothing!
And would you believe I only made one payment on it!

When the diesel fuel was good it would get 23 MPG. But with this new stuff I barely get 19. Explain how that is better environmentally, because I burn more to do the same job.

I love my truck, it will pull anything I hook it up to.
And no pee in the tank!!!!!

I'm told it has held it's resale value real well. But I couldn't afford to replace it. And they don't make anything I think is better.


When I converted my Motorhome to diesel I installed a 12 valve Cummins with a P 7100 pump. I believe that's the best combo 5.9L out there.


Now if I can get that 5 speed Allison harness done I'll have the perfect Motorhome for my needs, once I get it installed. Did I mention I put a limited slip in the readend when I regeared it?

Anyway Terry, I am blown away at how fast your TH is coming together now that you're back on your feet. Looking good!

Anybody need water? We've got plenty extra!

Thanks for the information. I have an 05 Ford that works very well. Enough power and with the 4:88 rear ends it will pull the wings off of flies and other larger stuff.

This DEF seems to work OK. The power in the coach is more than sufficient and the mileage is tolerable. Would like to make 20 but if I did I would be looking for 40 mpg. Just do not like paying high prices for fuel and then hear the oil companies are making billions a quarter profit. Rant over.

The TH progress is fantastic. Kudos to Terry and Eleanor for the workmanship.

Curtis - What a difference in prepitation from location to location. We have not had significant moisture since a snow storm in March. Keep safe.

Everyone have a great day.

Terry,
Looking at the front end that looks so good from the front. What are you going to do with the 2 half round spaces?
If you doubled up the plywood,(overlapped seams) glued and staples, it would be strong enough to remove the divider? Then you could slide the bed up into there.
Just thinkin'
Ed
