Had a fan looking at the coach this morning and he remarked what a high-powered rig I had. I looked at him and said, "hell, I have a tough time passing farm machinery". He said, "with a 310 hp engine, how could you have a problem?"

LOL On the return trip home after picking up my nu2me 310TD I blew the doors off a combine. However it wasn't until well into my beautifully excuted passing maneuver that I realized he still had the corn head on. My brakes, almost non existant so I looked straight ahead at the gap and prayed the combine driver didn't swerve towards my rig as I passed.........The look on the face of the aproaching car driver was funny as hell as it wouldn't be every day you'd be face with the decision of a head on between a combine and a big Silver Bullet as there was nowhere else for him to go.

Added Brad, thanks!

I have another thought and I wanted to throw it out there for opinions...
What about a part, part number and part interchange thread?

For example...
Further to the recent discussions about radiator hoses, and HVAC controls, we have a thread running... maybe a sticky where we post part interchange info, like part numbers...

Say your 1986 345 needs new brakes.. or suspension airbags..
As we get info/part numbers, people post them, like here.
If we find out that there are alternatives, or upgrade options(like a high friction pad), part availability, suppliers, and approximate prices...

I was thinking about it being in the Chassis section, but then what about things like the HVAC control or other stuff...
I personally note, that sometimes I have to search for a while to find the answer...

What does everyone think??

Steve, I'm all for it. I've thought something like this was needed for a while now.

I'm struggling at the moment trying to figure out all of the rear brake info for my 74 Argosy MH. It's amazing all the crap you have to dig through to find the right part and usually the only way is by getting the part and comparing.

By all means set up a sticky thread for parts info. I've got a bunch of part numbers to add


Brad

Found this AWESOME original PDF of the A&E Leveling system...
Added it to the sticky, but those of us with older motorhome might find it good to download all the pageds and save them!

How about a source of supply for manuals? I am looking to purchase one and would like to go through the manual before I do an inspection, not to mention if I get it, I really want the manuals!

Hi, and Welcome!
There is a few links to threads with great advice on pre-purchase inspecting and advice on a classic..... which many of us either did not know or ignored... LOL.
Most of us have a PDF copy of the manual for the early/mid 80's versions.
PM me details of what year, and your email address, and I will see what I can help you with!
