RE: 2004 Bounder New To Us Has Issues We Need Help With

What made U think a RV dealer knows anything other than selling RV's Buy a multimeter and get to probing, no one is going to care wassup more than U, It's simple, lights need 12 volts to function, get busy it will be fun & U will learn how to troubleshoot U're coach come rain & shine. There are always gonna be problems with that mobile house U have. Last time I woke up as all others before, gravity dictates water only falls down, not up!:)

RE: jacks up or down

Jacks down, Hydraulic fluid doesn't deteriorate an the jack shafts won't rust, check an old pc of abandoned construction equip thjat has set in the elements for years, most cylinder shafts look like new! Take as much of the coaches weight off of the tires & suspension as possible. 4 hydraulic legs don't care, careful U block the drive wheels so it doesn't roll, 6 tires sitting can develop flat spots over time, zero weight on em, zero problems other than sun exposure, If that doesn't make sense to U, nothing will.

RE: 20 year loan for RV?

I bought my 1992 Monaco Beaver Contessa for $15,000 the MSRP on it what's $325,000 it's a luxurious 3208 Caterpillar 4 speed transaxle Diesel Pusher, the body is in seriously nice shape with 0 delamination, solid as a rock handling down the road, I purchased the vehicle with cash and have been living in it since 2013, one of the best investments I've ever made, I will be heading from Virginia to Lake Chapala Mexico in a month or two and know that my rig will be trouble free, the only thing that has given me trouble is the hydraulic jacks that are on it for when I park long term, it's computer controlled,along with the air ride, I had to wire it all bypassing the computer, now it works fine + i have complete remote control. I would not go out and purchase a newer rig that has not proven itself over many years especially the **** they manufacture these days that has computer-controlled engines as well as drivetrain. Not even to mention slide outs. They are like electric windows only more **** to go wrong. :) I could sustain a sizeable EMP hit and the only thing I would probably lose is the radios,short wave,CB,PC and 65" TV if I'm using them at the time. Otherwise my 3208 will keep on tickin down the road as long as I feed it it's funky green juice. As far as finances go, dont belive the hype I have been holding Bitcoin a many a year yes it goes up and down, if I had of sold it at 20K I could have bought back at 3K thats a hell of a gain. Do not try and guess that U will come out ahead because U never know what U're Govt is gonna throw in the mix to screw U over next! :) I'm gonna be an expat an live the chill life down south, U can have this $h!tty american dream all to yourself.

RE: Anyone interested in 83 Pace Arrow Tear down and Rebuild?

Don't even waste your money if it isn't a worthy (rust free) diesel pusher! MSRP @ least $250,000 new!
