RE: Time to hang up the keys...(consignment ?)

Perhaps it would be a good idea to get a doctor's opinion of your limitations. With my pilots license I have to get a flight physical each year to see if I physically have the ability to fly an airplane safely. Maybe it would be a good idea to search for a flight surgeon, which are available in most areas, and get a complete physical. Naturally there is the mental limitations that we each place on ourselves, like I did when I stopped racing motorcycles, but maybe you can still continue to RV but step down to a Class B, which is not much bigger than a van. When I think about it, maybe it was when "common sense" kicked in that I stopped racing motorcycles. It took a lot of broken bones for me to finally get some common sense. :B

RE: Time to hang up the keys...(consignment ?)

One of the biggest dealers in the South is about 270 miles from you near Tampa. It is LazyDays RV sales. You might want to call them and see what they can do. It is fast approaching the time when the snowbirds will be flying South and this place sells more RV's than anyone. I can't give you any first hand info about them but I am sure that others have dealt with LazyDays.

RE: First trip in Class A driving in Smokey Mountains

I mostly travel in the Western mountains and have had no problem with the Western grades. Occasionally I am slowed down but for the most part, so are the DP's. Not all DP's can roar up a mountain grade, and most owners do not want to anyway. I used to have a DP and changed because of floor plan and do not miss the slight power difference. As far as decent braking, again, it is more technique than anything else. The facts are that during your travels, in the East or West, the steeper grads happen so infrequently that they are really nothing to be concerned about. For 99.9999999% of your travels, your engine, as with anyone else's, will do just fine. Actually I have never heard of anyone on this forum stating that their coach COULD NOT make it to the top of any highway hill. It might take a little longer but they all got to their destination. So will you.

RE: Hearing problem need wireless mic and ear piece

Due to my time in the service around airplanes and my career afterwards that included more airplanes and construction equipment, I have lost some of my hearing in certain frequencies. For instance in the lower frequencies, like thunder, I can usually hear it in the distance long before most others. Now with the higher frequencies, like when my wife speaks, I seem to have trouble hearing her. During our 56 years of marriage she has always been saying that I never listen to what she has to say so perhaps what I have is a genetic anomaly rather than a true loss of hearing. I'm afraid that if I use anything to improve my hearing in her speech frequencies that I will lose whatever excuse I have enjoyed for the past 50+ years. :B

RE: Paint job done

That looks outstanding. The price is about what it should cost for a quality paint job. If it is as smooth as you say then it was painted, clear coated, and finished sanded/polished to get the high gloss. This all takes a lot of labor time but the final product looks great. Enjoy

RE: Cummins 5 year old synthetic oil with 1000 miles - change ?

I would be more concerned about the tires sitting for so long than the oil. I would forget about the oil and drive a little slower than normal to get to the destination. Of course you want to make sure that the tires are properly inflated with maybe some extra to keep them cooler. After the engine warms up it will burn off any moisture that has gotten in to the oil.

RE: 2007 workhorse w22 rear wheel axle seals

It is a truck rear axle and WH used a few different brands. I believe yours may be a Dana rear axle and parts are readily available from truck service shops.

RE: Lightning Protection

Aluminum is not as good as copper but it was used for many years as the electrical wiring in many homes. It is still used in some feed lines to homes. You are as safe in your RV as you are in your stick home.

RE: RVs and California's Planned Power Outages

It is getting even worse the next few days with entire towns being evacuated and power being shut off to almost 3 Million users. Winds are expected to reach 85 MPH. Best of luck to all involved and evacuate if they tell you to.

RE: Indoor RV storage in Florida

Where in Florida? I might know of a private place near Clearwater, FL that has power and is air conditioned and can handle up to 45 feet.

RE: Transynd ??

Transynd is the fluid recommended by Allison but if you go to the Allison website they will give you a listing of other brands that are also TES-295 approved. As long as you use a transmission fluid that is TES-295 approved you are good to go. DO NOT let some auto parts guy in to telling you that their fluid is just as good and will work. If it does not state that it is TES-295 approved on the label, do not use it. NAPA should have what you need. It is not real cheap but it is what you need. Allison fluids

RE: 2008 Bounder F/G/B indicator panel problem.

I would be checking that the connections of both ends of your battery cables are clean and tight. I would also see if the panel lights change when you push the dashboard "Boost" switch. You may be having an issue with your house batteries nearing the end of their life.

RE: Heading to Florida

Some of the RV parks in and around the Panama City area, especially near the beaches, were severely damaged by Hurricane Michael and may still require repairs to open or have closed permanently. Check ahead and don't assume there will be plenty of RV sites available.

RE: Front windshield and info for insurance

There are numbers in the corner of your windshield that most any glass company can use to order a replacement. How your insurance company handles it varies.

RE: Replacement of Trans Cooling Lines ??

The cooling lines disconnect from the radiator and the transmission so that they can be replaced. You will lose some fluid when they are taken loose. These are steel lines and any hydraulic shop should be able to replace the flex end for less money that buying new WH parts. They are NOT high pressure so even a silicone hose and clamps will work as a replacement, which I had to use when one of my cooling lines was ripped off when my engine fan came apart and sliced through the transmission line.

RE: Where Fill Trans Fluid ?

I used a funnel like this to fill mine through the dipstick tube. It does take someone to hold the funnel while you add the fluid or you can do it yourself if you are only adding a quart.

RE: 1987 37' Winnebago Elandan for Sale >$45,000< ??

She died in 1999. This coach has been sitting unused for the last 20 years? It even comes with all of the original hoses and belts and tires, that were on the coach when she died. Like that is a good thing. :B Maybe you can make a fortune selling off the individual parts as being from the "death coach". Maybe it was the stuff in this coach that caused her to OD. Her time has passed, and so has this RV.

RE: Basement Heat Pump

Sometimes a heat pump that is not used regularly will have issues with the reversing valve not opening completely. This is the valve that causes the reversal of the refrigerant to produce heat instead of cold air out of your unit. The valve, like any other mechanical valve, should be exercised from time to time to insure that it remains trouble free. If the valve is not fully opening/closing it will make some weird noises. Occasionally just cycling of the AC unit from heat to cool will correct the problem and sometimes the valve needs to be replaced. If the AC works fine(same compressor), it is not a voltage issue. It sounds like a sticky reversing valve.
