I have a 2017 Pace Arrow 35E bunkhouse model that I bought new this year. I'd love to see some mods, etc. I previously had a Jayco Precept and I loved their forum because they had great model specific participation.

I haven't modified much other than try to rig an extension to the sewer so I can connect my Sewer Solution. The connection is too recessed for it to fit. And I hate the 3" slinky pipe.

So I'd love to hear what others have done or problems that they've solved.

I have recently bought a 1988 32' Pace Arrow, garaged kept with 25,000 miles, the only owner before me passed away 10 years ago. Except for the mice having a heyday in this motorhome, the ceiling from front to back sags almost everywhere and I feel instead of replacement there is somehow I can get it back to norm without replacing anything except for the strip that secure each panel. Any suggestions, thanks...….

skylight screws
 
2001 35R with a nice skylight in the shower. the screws kept falling out on the inside so here is my fix. remove all screws and the inside plastic. Good time to clean exposed plastic. where the screw holes are I scraped any foam off the 1/4" plywood foam pannel. I cut several pieces of 3/4 x 1 1/2 x 2" wood which I predrilled screw holes thru the 3/4" thickness and started a screw in and out. I put wood glue on the bottom of the insert wood and screwed in down to press the pieces together. after all holes had been reinforced with new wood and glue dried,I removed the screws and reinstalled the inside skylight. No more loose screws. .

I've got a 99 35u pace arrow, no slides. The biggest problem I've run into so far is the roof. leaks everywhere so I sealed it up with tropicool rubber roof coating from hd.

Having the same problem, any pix of the wood size? having a problem seeing it in my mind. did you glue it to the original paneling? I get the 3/4 x1 1/2" but the 2"????? you made a bunch of little pieces or one long piece for each side? did you insert the blocks into the foam?? behind the ceiling panel?

thanks...

On my previous unit I redid the skylight in the shower as well and inserted a LED strip all around the frame on the inside and conected to regular lights and it looked very nice. Wish I had some pictures to show. But planning on doing same on the Pace Arrow soon

Cacique 07-07-2018 01:04 PM

Finaly chose the new floor for the unit we will use the new Lifeproof vinyl board with padding totaly waterproof and also scratchproof. Maybe this will reduce scratching from slides, just maybe.

Motorhomes that sit for very long time develop more problems then those that a used. When you buy a motorhome you need to have a full inspection done of the entire unit before taking it out on a trip and then that first trip shoul be a short one and all systems shoulb be checked and rechecked before a 4500 mile road trip.

Lower the table top and then fill it in with the cushions from the back of the sofa. You'll have to move them around to see which ones fit to make the solid bed surface.

Best thing going for this problem are these Rosettes and most sure I used them on my 87 PA by staggering them all over the ceiling for any place they would grab. ..... https://smile.amazon.com/AP-Products...ess+washers%27

Just bought a 1989 Pace arrow with 47,000 miles. The lady that we bought it from had backed into a tree branch and cracked the upper rear trim that holds the marker lights on the drivers side (see photo). Where can I buy a repair piece for this? I believe it is just riveted on.

Looks like a candidate for a Fiberglas kit and some matching paint.
Otherwise, try Colaw Salvage ..... https://colawrvsalvage.com/

Bob, we have a 2004 36R that had the same problem plus the clear coat on the black doors was peeling. I sanded the mirrors with 400 grit and sanded the doors to get off the loose clear coat, feathering the edges. Gloss black spray paint from Walmart, took my time building up the coats, wet sanded, rubbing compound, ,polish. Iíll try to send after picture via pm. Just doing the mirrors should not be near the work. Just make sure you do a good job of taping off anything that you do not want spray paint on.

DGW is correct you can sand with a 400 grit or even higher if you find and I would try a polishing compound also before that with a whool and then a buff with a good wax before just on a small spot and see if the shine comes back if not then pain. I would try polishing compound and wax before sometimes the shine returns. Then post your finished pictures.

Per Req: attached three Pic's refinishing MH driving mirrors. First lightly sanded (400 grit) then washed and dried mirror covers to remove sanding dust. Used Classic Coat, gloss black for vinyl paint #SEM 17093 spray paint purchased from automotive paint supply store. Lightly sprayed three coats to prevent running, ten minutes apart -requires 24 hours to fully dry. Mirror covers now look like new. Check early post for mirror prior condition.

1992 Fleetwood Pace Arrow 33' Chevrolet 454
 
Hello, I am a new owner of a 1992 Pace Arrow 33'. I am a first time RV owner.

The RV needs a new roof and a roof part that I am posting a picture of so if anyone can tell me where to get it I would really appreciate it. It is the roof to side wall molding and I need about 11' of it.

https://i63.tinypic.com/2luouc9.jpg

I also new a driver's side window (roll down part only) because before I bought the generator attached to the RV (Onan Marquis 7000 with only 133hrs and starts right up) the unit was broken into. BTW, the person that sold me the RV's generator threw in the RV for free!

https://i67.tinypic.com/2lkac9f.jpg

Other than those issues, I got it started and it knocks pretty bad so it probably needs a rebuild (Chevrolet 454). I will address that once I get it water tight.

Lol, first engine I have worked on also. Go Grandma Powers! :dance:

Cacique 10-16-2018 12:33 PM

Have you tried contacting any of the RV salvage yards? I would think that roof piece you could probably get. The window too should not be too much trouble for a salvage yard I would think.

Check with your local glass shop being a flat laminated glass it would be very simple to cut one.

Original glass is tempered glass.

My hat is off to you for the effort your putting into it.

I found the web site where you can download PDF's of your EXACT Fleetwood year and model user and parts lists. You can also order some parts for your unit from them. They are the manufacturer.

For parts lists and manuals go here:

It was $200+ for my driver's side window - but they had it so it has been ordered.

1998 Pace Arrow here. Owned for about 5 years now. Been across the country with it a couple of times. Problems now and then but nothing insurmountable yet. V10 blew out a spark plug a month and a half ago. Got it repaired but now the idle is uneven and it stalls. Got a tag axle tire cupping, hopefully just out of balance. All par for the course when you own an RV, even the new ones have problems. In FL now, heading for AZ in a couple of weeks.

2004 Pace Arrow 35G Workhorse switches - help please
 
We are purchasing a 2004 Pace Arrow 35G Workhorse and in an upper cabinet near the door there appears to be two battery disconnect switches. I asked the salesman why two, what do they do and all I got was a puzzled look. He didn't know. In my old rig there was only one. They must have put two in for a reason, but in looking at the owners manual I could not find an answer. Maybe one is for a different purpose. Anybody know? Thank you in advance.

JohnRR 10-24-2018 10:54 PM

On my Pace left switch is for chassis battery shut off and the right one is for the house batteries shut out.

Yes but after that use 303 protectant that will protect plastic from UV rays. You should use it on tires and all rubber seals as well

JohnRR 12-10-2018 08:20 AM

As I mentioned earlier in regards to a sub forum for the Pace Arrow itís the numbers that count. Each post made in this mega thread still, only counts as 1 thread.

As time allows Iím going to go back and separate/move posts to their own threads this will get the thread count up as well as give more exposure to each post, so if you can not find your past post here look in the Fleetwood Forum, each title will include Pace Arrow.

Itís up to all of you to help with making separate theads to achieve the separate sub forum like Bounders have.

What light strip did you use on your steps? I would like to replace the little yellow clearance light they used on mine.

I used leftover pieces from waterproof led strips that I used in other projects. These strips use 12v and any of them will work as long as they are waterproof and that you seal ends and conections with watertight silicone.
It came out very good the DW lived it and I put a seperate switch tha can be tutned on sepperately from the steps.

I bought a 98 Pace Arrow Vision in July. I moved, started a new job, took the dogs and started OVA. Living in my MacBehomoth and have made investments in it. So far, new tires, new plumbing, new leveling gear (after mkt - still not working 100%, maybe I don't know how to make it work), and other minor stuff. We love it. I bought a tow dolly but haven't used it yet. My furniture is in storage. Just stopping by to say hello!!!

I would be curious to see pictures of your interior to see how similar it is to mine. I too have a 98 Pace Arrow that we just bought at the end of summer this year. I did some updates on a few things and have it stored right now at my mother's house. I have a few more things that I want to fix on it, one being my leveling gear as you did.

Another 98 Vision owner here but mine looks different than yours (see avatar photo at left). Currently struggling with non-functioning dash lights (I checked the fuse) and cruise control (maybe bad ABS sensor).
I have the early generation V10 which has spit out one spark plug so far (got that replaced but now having idle problems). Other than that, no real problems in about 3 years and 15K+ miles of ownership.
I have managed to attack the house and at least one tree with it while backing up. The house is sold and stuff is in storage so we're full timing. The tree survived the encounter better than my rear cap...I've been told those are 'experience marks'.
I am quite familiar with the big Colaw RV salvage yard near Carthage MO now. Fortunately I have not been there enough that they know me by name (yet)...

Whoops dbmowsk yours isn't a Vision, that's lessee, no wonder it looks different. Sorry..

I would be interested in any owners of this model and there towing story. We are looking at the purchase of the Pace and Iím getting conflicting info on it towing abilities. Some are saying GCWR-GVWR = 600 lbs. Six hundred pounds is all itís able to tow after the RV is loaded!!!! Sorry my toad is 3800 empty. Can anyone build on this truth or myth. Will I be able tow anything? Some are say tough luck and upgrade to the Discovery.

600 seems a bit light. My pace has a sheet posted inside one of the closet doors by the bathroom that shows all of those ratings. Unfortunately I can't look at it just yet because it is in storage, but if you can have the people that are selling it send you a copy of that specs page, you can figure it out for yourself.

daveandcarol 01-03-2019 11:41 PM

The Gross Towed Weight (GTW) on my 98 Vision says 5000#. The tongue weight space is blank but I remember from somewhere it is 1000#. (With the Ford V10 engine that means 6% grades are not enjoyable.) I am towing a 3200# auto on an 1800# trailer so I am pretty much at capacity.

JohnRR thatís a great looking set up in the photo. What year and model is that? Do you think Iím too overly concerned about towing a 3800 pound car, four down, with a 2018 Pace Arrow LXE 38K? Itís not a huge Escalade!!! It scares me to think of pulling the trigger on this deal and finding out I donít have the right set up for towing anything. Currently my 09 Holiday Rambler does good.

Do some more research this is a starting point
