Allegro/P-30

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.

Redoing Onan genset wiring an such.... 3 Replies

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

Hi Philip, good to hear about a running Allegro driving in Ohio. It will not be to long before Tina and Pat Paul are driving their motor home in Ohio to attend the 2016 Jimco Jamboree. It's always nice to see a white & green Allegro parked here at the Jam.

Was anyone traveling across I76 today? I saw an old Allegro going over lake Milton between Youngstown and Akron Ohio with a keep behind it.

How about some pics of your Allegros? I threw up a random pic of mine for the group photo but it's not fabulous. There are far more photogenic Allegros out there. Maybe post up some pics and we can vote on the best one to represent the group?

Thanks everyone for the advice. I got the right stuff now. I have to do around the Windows and the refrigerator access door because I took them off for replacement and to get new frig in.

Tiffin still has parts for our old gals in stock in many cases... I've had good luck giving their parts dept a call.  but yes check those drain tabs...clogs happen.  I have yet to find the leak in the front windshield however... off center left and right sides.  I've had the gasket pulled and reset with the hot sealant, silicone, caulk,  and behind each marker light etc... I have not had the glass pulled as that is cost prohibitive and not many places will touch it anyway.

As far as SEALING your windows,,,,, check first where its actually leaking. Its NOT always around the seal,sometimes it is,, But as Jim mentioned, check the *drain track. If its a window that cranks out or slides open, check the felt seal where the 2 pieces of glass meet. Track drains get clogged easily with everyday dust and crud blowing in the wind.

If the original seal of the window is whats leaking, NEVER,EVER,EVER, use silicone, unless you want to peel it off a couple months later and reseal it again. Use Butyl tape, it comes in grey and black rolls,, Looks like cauking on a tape roll.

Its not that hard to work with and removing a window and scraping off the old butyl tape off and applying new butyl is an afternoon job. Usually takes a couple hours to remove,,reseal and re-install the window, then move on to the next one.

A *Note,,, with the window out, You can check the surrounding wood frame for any water damage and takle that problem while the window is out.

Philip - do you mean around the frame itself? If so it appears to be that sticky gray stuff (my dad calls it "dum dum"). I used it to repair the range hood vent and a couple of other protrusions through the skin on my Allegro. It comes in a roll. If your windows are leaking it may not be from the frames. Sometimes the drains get clogged.

Comment by Philip Wolsonovich on May 5, 2016 at 7:58pm
Does anyone have a suggestion for sealing around Windows? I see it is some kind of grey caulking but not sure what kind it is.

Awesome! Can't wait for pics and/or video...

Comment by Philip Wolsonovich on April 23, 2016 at 6:21pm
Well the old girl is rolling again. As soon as I get speedometer and tachometer in I'll post pick and maybe video. If I can figure how to do video.
