    I read a post a while back that said you sold a hydralift. I have one on the coach I'm buying and don't need's built for a golf cart. How and where did you sell the thing??

    I'm not sure if I am operating the tag axle dump control properly on my newly purchased Dutch Star. Would someone please explain dumping, auto dump, manual dumping and process reversal ?? Thanks.

    Hi FIRE UP,

    I wanted to let you know after a few more “hit & misses” w/my Onan 7.5 staying running; I’ve decided I’m going to start dismantling the front bumper/cap on Thursday! I’m going to replace the thermostat and temp sensor. I’ve just read your 2012 post and saw your pics about removing the sensor....holy crap! I know I’ll also have problems as my unit is a bit rusted from its time in Lake Michigan.

    May I contact you again directly for help in removing that sensor? I didn’t understand the “freeze” part of your heat-and-freeze method of loosening the sensor.

    Anyways, thanks for all the posting and pics on this subject!

    Hello. I am struggling with remembering how to post questions to the group so taking a chance on asking you as it seems you have a ton of expertise. We are having the red engine light coming on when we are throttling like climbing hills and such, but it goes right off as soon as we let up on the accelerator. We have a 2005 Itasca Meridian 39K. Any ideas?

    Are you a 'expert' on RV inverters???
    I was considering a way to bypass my inverter, Why?
    I have 50A service, but am limited to 30A total on everything that has access to the inverter.
    Wintered in CO, tried to heat as much as possible with 110v heaters.
    Turn out the inverter limits you to 30A

    Just like I stated way back early on in this thread, waaaaaaay cheaper and a whole ton of light, if you want it that way. .

    IMO some people don't grasp what they read.
    Also, at times I know what I think I said, but the person receiving the info might not fully grasp.
    And then we have a lot of people that have the mentality of. When they are on a escalator and it stops, they need help in getting off.

    Their is a movie Idiocracy that should be required watching for anyone old enough to have kids.

    Hi Scott,
    On my way to pulling the Rad and CAC. My coach is wide open in the rear once I removed the grill(s). Can you share the following information:
    I drained the petcock in the heater core hose and radiator. any other location before I remove hoses?
    I have read the refilling procedure. Is it accurate and the best method to refill the system?
    Not sure if prior owner had a water leak or if normal condensation has rusted the face of the engine or the factory paint was just a poor job. Anyway, I plan to clean it down to the metal prime and then repaint with a high quality engine paint.
    Do you have any general recommendations past bearings, hoses and belts?

    Also, In doing some other maintenance I'm not happy with the paint on the front of the engine area. I would like to remove the RAD and CAC then pull bolts out of the items that create issues (broken bolt nightmare) and then detail the entire engine with new paint. Have you ever pulled a rear RAD/CAC out? As I shared prior, not retired just yet so I have the downtime to pull her apart and make new again. Just curious if it's a real pain in the A$% or just a matter of time and bloody knuckles.
