Spare parts

Good morning,

Once again, I'm asking a question that has been more than likely drug around the block a few times. Since we have not taken delivery of our coach yet (spring) I have a lot of time to fester over "do's and don'ts" of MH ownership. So, besides obvious engine, and gen.(425 ISL, QD10k) spares, belts, hoses, filters, probably others I've failed to mention. More along the lines of CC specific Items, if indeed the parts and pieces are not model dependent. First time MH owner, but have had fivers, and bumper pulls. I might add that an OCD condition exists on being prepared, not a bad thing I suppose, but you only have so much room!

The list could be almost endless and varies depending on the coach. As for the house the various switches and sensors for the furnace and water heater are popular along with a spare water pump or water pump rebuild kit. That, along with a good assortment of tools. Fuses, light bulbs and some spare wire and crimp connectors also seem to be popular. Get the good crimp connectors with the waterproof shrink tubing. Personally I carry a soldering iron and solder along with some shrink tubing. A quart of lacquer thinner works good for cleaning things but it's pretty hard on hands and some finishes. Mineral spirits or lighter fluid is not so hard on finishes but might leave a little bit of residue. With the supply chain being what it is currently I might err on the side of having something on hand rather than counting on Amazon or some other supplier. Good luck.

X's 2 on the Ride Height Valve. If all three of your Leveler Valve's are the same, just one. If the Front is different, then One for the Front, and one for the Rears... While normally they're not too difficult to get a hold of, I know some owner's air DP's that have had shops 'make something work' - and ended up having to have the new replace valve changed over to the proper one!

The standard Duct/Gorilla Tape, Some Caulking, and I also carry some Eterna Bond Tape as well. A few of the standard 12V Cubed Relays, and pack of the various sizes of bladed fuses.

I carry two extra Primarily Fuel Filters, and one Secondary (Always remember to Rotate your stock at annual Lube/Oil/Filter time - as filters do have Shelf Life's to consider.) And I carry one extra Fuel Filter for the Aqua/Hydro Hot too. (Oddly, I never carried an extra Generator Fuel Filter, except for out trip to Alaska in 2014...).

Whenever I change the Fan Belts, I slide the old one under the slide out trays for a spare (And toss the previous removed belt.).

I carry a Gallon Concentrate of the Anti Freeze (And in our Allure, had both the Generator and Engine on the same Final Charge from Peak. Have not got that far with our Magna, so need to find out if the Generator is different coolant then the ISX's.). And we carry two gallons of Distilled Water. (Every other time I top up the Hydro/AquaHot Overflow Tank, I use 50/50 Boiler Mix with Distilled water. To keep the mix from becoming too concentrated. Apparently the Silicone Hoses in these system, will at times allow H20 to work out, and eventually the Boiler Mix becomes out of balance.) And the other gallon is for standby - in case we need top up for the engine coolant, along with the Concentrate.

And other odds and ends that have accumulated during projects over the years!

It's so easy to get 'Spare Part Creep'!

Best to you, and all - Smitty

Fuel filters and belts not only for engine but for generator as well. I have found the fuel filter for the generator to be more sensitive to clogging with some bad fuel than the engine filters and is not as available as one would think! It becomes very important on hot summer nights.

I would add 1/2 inch hose fixing kits.....

Our many years old glendenning fresh water hose bent the fitting at the end of the hose creating a 10 foot spray into the neighbors campsite (luckily they had left early AM)....I tried all manner of fixes I had on hand. None worked.

Drove to a local Ace..found part, fixed hose.

Had I had this small part in hand would've been a 5 min fix. Lesson learned.

If you looked in our basement you would see so much stuff it is crazy. Being a mechanic I have tools and all things mentioned above. I replaced my water pump, belt idler and something else. Still have the used ones in rv just in case. Or if another rver needs on side of road. Filters etc.

One last thing, there is a case of beer buried in there somewhere, just in case we get a flat tire
