Well this rv is nothing but a headache. Got rudely woken up by security at Redhawk casino after a night of walking around there casino and eating dinner there to be told I have to get out now. Ben here almost 24 hours ... I get my meds in me get to drivers seat to find out no reverse and no park...just roll fwd ... I just had engine and tranny services with new filter and fluid. Only thing I could think of is linkage. Could airbags not working cause reverse/park not to work?

The rag joint is the part in the steering shaft which allows it some movement and isolates from some vibration.

Here's what a destroyed one looks like. This is out of my 67 Firebird.

What are you using to put air in the tire? Is it working correctly? Spray some soapy water solution around the rim where it meets the rubber and also the valve stem. If you are using a properly working air compressor. The air has to be going somewhere.

If you are stuck I would suggest speaking with the WM store manager and explaining your situation. Maybe you will get lucky and get a good one who will make a 1 night exception for you.

Ok so i got it all back together but I had to air down the inner tire to get the outer tire on. Now the inner tire won't air up. Sprayed soapy water on tire/rim only bubbles I see is around steel stem. Wife wants to put super glue around it if the ,11mm socket doesent work. The tire shops says our tires are too old and they refuse to do a stem job..

Most auto parts stores that cater to heavy duty trucks have the air tubing, fittings, etc, you might need to repair the air leak. Tubing size = outside diameter. The rear air bags should be identically plumbed, copy from the good side when repairing the bad side.

You said in your earlier post that you could only get 15 psi in the tire. I can't see the valve stem leaving that much unless it darn near broken off.
If the tire shop won't work on it due to tire age. Just how old are they?
The average life span seems to be 10-12 years (of coarse there are many variables that can drastically affect this)
Hope that you have some good luck come your way. Sounds like you need some.

If you are serious about being 28 years old, I highly suggest investing in a set of new tires ASAP. In my opinion they have well out lived their structural integrity and may no longer be roadworthy or safe. Especially safe!!!
