You will probably have to take the whole cap off to do the repair though which might be hard. On mine, luckily I only had to take one side of the top cap off to repair it since there was a seam just past the backup camera.

As for the vertical trim, you might want to get some sheet metal screws that have a fender type head like these:

The larger screw head can then act as a clamp to hold the cap in place since your screw holes are torn out.

I assume you checked the RV salvage yards for the part. When I checked on mine, none of the salvage yards had that part, and fleetwood said that they no longer had the mold for my part.

Great FG repair shop in W Melbourne Fl. Repaired same thing on mine can't tell where it happened. Insurance cover it all. Call if you need their number. 321 999 4555

Colaw has a couple of Pace Arrows with good rear caps but I really don't want to replace the entire rear cap (it's all one piece) if I don't have to.

Well, not much happening here. Time to bump it back to the front page so it doesn't get lost...
Had another Pace Arrow (mid-90's?) here at this park a couple of days ago. Didn't get a chance to talk to them though.

On my 1999 PA Vision, the front parking lights were discolored. A few years ago, after much research I replaced the headlights and decided to replace these parking lights now. Lo and behold my info that was compiled on lights has been lost. I'm thinking the file was deleted by mistake, that being another story. If any of you have this info I would forever be in you debt if you will share with me.
In the meantime I decided to try cleaning the existing front parking lights inside. After finally getting them out I was faced with how to get to the inside. I decided to fill them with detergent, slouch around until clean. This didn't work. I forgot to say both were half full with water and had stained the lens inside. Next I poured bleach mixture into both and left them soaking while I ran to hardware store for something to seal the lens with, should this bleach trick work. I decided on flowable silicone used for windshields.
After a couple hours I emptied bleach and began flushing with fresh water. The lens look brand new after flushing the gunk out. After drying the units good with compressed air and sunshine, silicone was applied to edges and allowed to flow into the cracks. I used a full tube for both lights.
I could not find a part number on lights. There was a sticker on each but printing has been long faded off.
:dance:

Unfortunately the parking lights are exposed to spray off the front tires. On mine the rubber sponge gasket on the light socket (an O-ring maybe - can't remember) was shot and the rubber boot had worked loose. I found a replacement for one of mine on Ebay. I believe they were listed for a Chevy Astro van. There is a small hole on one edge to allow humidity to escape (I think it was on the top - wonder if mine are reversed - not sure if they are handed or alike).
Will remember your bleach trick.

Regwal 09-21-2019 07:19 AM

A Chevy Astro rings a bell with me too Dave but I'm thinking the head and parking lights were from different vehicles. On my fix, there is no hole for humidity to escape now if it was close to the lens edge lol. I may have to drill one if any moisture is noticed.

Well, this thread has been quiet for a little while now so it's time to post something and keep it on the main page. Unfortunately I don't really have anything to add at present. Hopefully this lack of activity means none of the Pace Arrow owners are having any problems...(that comment might get a response or two...)

On my 99 PA Vision the right side was always lower than the left. I first thought it was loading but that was dismissed after emptying out storage bays. I performed a "parking lot check" and determined the right rear leaf spring to be a problem. Ask around for suggestions but really nothing was offered. I called Peterbuilt and ask if they did springs and found out they used Horton Trucking so I visited them in Jax FL. After a through inspection they confirmed the right rear was lower with left still at factory specifications. Gave me price and appointment. What a difference the repair made to handling. I put this off too long considering how the couch drives now. Very pleased with their inspection of springs, bushings and suspension, front and back.

Regwal,
That's interesting. My '06 PA (mine since 11/16) has always listed the same direction as yours did. Had it checked at the REV tech center in Coburg, OR, and they said everything underneath was to spec. I don't think they really understood why it was leaning. Another shop told me the lean is typical for PAs (or was it Fleetwoods in general?) of that vintage.

Vagaron, Take it to a "spring shop". I doubt a RV shop has the equipment or expertise to correctly level your coach. It sure made a difference in mine. I estimated mine to be 3/4 inches difference at axil level which would be quite noticeable at drivers eye level. JMHO

Hello! Couple of questions.

Where can I find/purchase a service manual for my Pace Arrow? Where can I find a service manual for the Ford engine?

Is there an OBD I or II port in a 94 Pace Arrow?

Thanks!

2019 Pace Arrow 38K
 
I have a question on my new Pace Arrow 38k. On the control panel on the wall (Digital)When I turn to heat the bed room goes to heat pump but the living area stays on gas. Can you tell me how to get both units on the heat pump

daveandcarol 10-21-2019 10:46 PM

New Question: when my large slide goes out, it seems to need a little push at the bottom with my foot to help out the last inch or so. Likewise, when I retract it, I frequently have to push from the outside to get the first inch or so of movement started. I met another PA owner who said he had to help push his slide in too. Do others have this problem with their slide? Is it a lack of lubrication problem or a misalignment?
