A place to share information about and to get help with your Tiffin Allegro and its P-30 Chevy chassis. I'm amazed at the seemingly infinite combinations of floor plans throughout the years.

Well it was cold and rainy but fun. The furnace works great after I put a new circuit board in her. Good thing because it snowed on us the last night.

In the next few weeks I've made the decision to pull the BFA 4.0 genset from the Allegro and get it into the workshop. Too many past splices to the wiring, the remote panel works half the time, now…Continue

Removed the Roof Rack 3 Replies

Well after years of contemplation, I finally decided to remove the roof rack. I love the classic Allegro look, but I just couldn't keep up with the leaks anymore. From the factory, there are 44…Continue

RL glad to have you on here!! yes, I was so glad to have the right tools to open up the bleeder but wow was that tight clearance Clarence! You might check out my old Suburban furnace fix it videos (took two to make one).

Dan I Just saw your YouTube video on the rear brakes ,,,you’re so right the bleeder is sooo close to the leaf spring /hub assembly ...But glad you got it bled! I just finished installing a new furnace (suburban nt 30sp) Got a great deal I think at only $600..either way the old

35 year old unit needed to go ,the heat exchangers aren’t safe at that age .waiting on parts to rebuild the dash AC ..on to the next project..LOL!!!!!

Well, I managed to find the pen hole (bigger than a pin hole) in the brake hard line and fix it with flared fittings. Now to bleed the rear drums but wow! The bleeder valve is like an 1" from the leaf springs!!

It may be less because I'm thinking how the heck to I get a slotted wrench in there??? Any ideas? Allegro P30 with, you guessed it, rear drums....

Thanks Phil!

I have a Bookdocking unit on order to replace my old and not-sure-it-even-works no label model.

Comment by Philip Wolsonovich on April 5, 2020 at 2:48pm
It is a power converter. Mine went bad on our first camping trip. Replaced it with a up dated version. Half the size and has a battery maintenance programmed in it. I would replace it while you've got the fridge out. Well worth the money in the extra life you'll get out of house batteries.

I pulled my Dometic fridge unit out to fix the roof leaks and rot and realized that under this cabinet, bolted to the floor of the RV is some metal box with a vented top. It's plugged in and has what looks like a voltage regulator mounted near it and some lead (metal and looks to be a thermostat wire going down into the floor). The box is aluminum and is about 11" wide by 8" high and about 9" deep. I'll be examining it more and I assumed it was some sort of inverter but the other connections give me pause.

Managed to redo the wiper/washer hoses, pump and tank so now I can hit a push button and get some water to wash mud and crud off the windshield! Of course we won't be able to travel but hey, it's one thing off my list!!

Comment by Daniel Long on February 9, 2020 at 10:42pm

Got the belt issue fixed by pulling the alternator and putting the RIGHT pulley on her! Finally, the belt is on a correct 6 groove pulley. One more thing fixed on the Long Hauler 2.

Getting ready for the next road trip south to beat the winter blues. If only we can get Mom to not pack for 3 months of clothes....

Comment by Russell E Johnson on February 1, 2020 at 6:07pm

That is good the belt came apart when it did. We lost ours in the middle of nowhere, 4 hours to get a wrecker and towed to a mechanic. Then 2 days of repair, they had to get the part from 150 miles away. Fun times LOL
