Bought a new to me MH Land Yacht 30 2000
Proud new owner, the fun has already begun, even tho it was a low mileage, clean unit, of course we had to fix and improve to make it ours.
My question to the group of mechanics here that own a MH with 454 chevy 7.4 is the K & N Filter original or an after market addition?
My intake box was mounted 90 degrees wrong, bottom of box was on its side, probably why previous owner changed fuel filter every 6 months or less, sometimes as short as 300 miles. If he drove it in the rain it would have sucked in water. FF are cheap unless you use dealer or truck mechanics, he was paying 75 to 100 for each time he replaced. According to Chevy FF change normally is at 30000 miles. He pointed out the spare one in the parts and said it was time to change it again.
Step didn't work, on checking forums found it was common for kwikee motors to need replacement. Opened motor found white metal housing had corroded so much that it jammed the gears. Best price for replacement was a Taurus rear drivers side window lift. Too bad it was a chinese motor and output gear, had to reuse old gear as the 9 tooth male gear wouldn't mesh with old female in the gear box.
Back up monitor needed a couple of taps on the screen to show picture, on inspection found input wire was loose, the last mechanic that had the dash out removed the wire strain relief from the wire and didn't replace it, probably would have taken an extra 5 minutes, now I have to cobble a new one.
Easiest repair so far was the front sway bar bushings, Autozone actually had them in stock.
Easiest replacement was the Microwave, 10 years after manufacture and the same model is still available at Walmart. No cutting or fitting just unscrew and drop in new one. No it wasn't over used just lack of use, the digital monitor no longer showed what was being entered and first mate doesn't like to out guess cooking modes;-)
One other question, does anybody else here have the floor tile option from AS original upgrade?
Dave Florida, almost ready to travel.
