I was at Jackson Center today and found four new Alcoa rear wheel center inserts for my 1984 Motorhome. Mine needed replated.

I need new. How much were they? I thought about the ones I have seen at truck stops. Didn't know if they would fit.

New Coleman Mach 15. Installed this morning before temp got up to 99. I think they gave me the wrong ceiling unit. Anyone have a Mach 15? I have some questions

They are aluminum, the outer finish is polished. I had the person in the store verify with the service shop to make sure these are the correct ones for my motorhome. Once I got home and did some measuring I noticed that these are 5 1/8" diameter vs. 5 1/4" diameter of my old ones and the closed ends do not exactly match my existing ones. Of course the shape doesn't matter since I purchased enough to replace all of them. I will now have to see if they will fit. The airstream part number is 452260-01 and they were $23.15 each.

I installed the Rear Wheel inserts today. Since they were smaller in diameter I had to flatten the 45 degree angle in the ring that holds the inserts to the wheel. Even though I did this the ID of the ring was still larger than the OD of the Wheel centers. I had to make sure that the wheel insert was centered on the wheel when I tightened the lug nuts. If I had to do this over again I probably would have investigated plating my old inserts and the ring since they would center on the wheel and be a perfect fit.

Yeah, especially if anyone hears the words that come out of my mouth during these times.

In my experience fuel leaks have great potential for becoming exciting.
