I think your repair will hold up fine- that's what I would've done.
Mines been in there 26 years and I look under there all the time-- Still good !

Ok guys now I'm having another issue....My jack system thinks my jacks are not retracted when they actually are which results in an alarm when put into gear. What tells the system that the jacks are retracted? No wires to the rams, the only other way I can imagine it could tell is by oil level in the tank maybe. I've got to get that fixed it will drive you nuts!

New to us 95' American Dream, fun begins

Not sure what kind of jacks you have but if hydraulic then there is probably a sensor in the oil reservoir that will sound an alarm if the oil is low. If yours are like this, retract the jacks all the way and check the oil level. My reservoir is in the bay with my fuel filter on my 02 Eagle.

I found this. Also, you can download the owner’s manual on the AC website if you nee to.

Yes that is the exact panel my leveling system has...I looked in my manual but there was no info on Leveling system maintenance, only basic operation. I did find the reservoir and found out it has a small dipstick, required the tiniest amount of hydraulic oil and that satisfied the warning lights. Easy Fix!

We got the MH out of the shed for the first time last week for the first Barrel race my daughter had away from home since December. I cheated and let the truck wash do the dirty work, best $45 I've ever spent lol!

....still dealing with that horrible smell when traveling after using the black water tank, I must have a vent stopped up or something, it will run you out of there if you travel without flushing out the tank first!

The smell you smell may be the gray tank!
The black tank smell in the MH would only be if the toilet is not sealing at the bottom, not holding water in the bowl, or the vent to the roof is plugged up! You can take a water hose to the roof, take the vent cap off, and run water down to clean it out!
The grey tank, has a lot more ways to get the odors inside the MH! Traps with no water in them, the air admittance valve's under the sinks can and will go bad, leaving a vent open when you are under way, can produce a vacuum that will suck the water out of the traps, and get you that lovely aroma!
It is something simple, follow your nose, check under the sinks, if no smell, then head to the roof, make sure the vents are clear!
Good luck! Rail!

Odor- If you have a washer and dryer there is also a Drain and P-trap that goes directly to the Grey tank- If the P trap drys up it will siphon odor into the coach-
Remedy ? If you don't use the Washer and dryer like I don't- pour Olive oil into the top of the Drain pipe filling the P trap.
By the way that Drain pipe doesn't vent through the roof- its where the drain line drops in--accessible from the outside door.

Just as an aside, on the last leg of our trip to N.H. two weeks ago saw 2 92 Eagles northbound on I-95 in S. Georgia.


Both were running strong and blowing no smoke!


These vintage Americans rock!!!!!

If you would have been on I-10 in NE FL a couple of weeks ago, you might have seen our 91 Eagle running strong and no smoke. Folks told me that I would love this mechanical engine. They were right.
