Okay, she runs on electric (shore power) and can run on gas but you have to keep the button in and manually light the burner. If you let go of the button, she goes out. Thinking that this means…Continue

RV and Camper Rule of Ethics

Here is the PDF version of the Rules I found. I retyped it and dropped in the original logo below. CODE%20OF%20ETHICS.pdf

It's in PDF format for printing. Enjoy!

Got a new and improved blog as they say....

This one's been active since we got the LH2 (an Allegro '87 class A) and I've been working the bugs out of her. Fun, excitement, travel, drama it's all there.

Take a look and laugh and cry at the stuff we go through.

Have a good one and all the best to you....

I'm a babe in the woods, yet, but we've already taken the camper for one trip that was successful in spite of all the provincial campgrounds closing over COVID19. Our Econoline camper seems mechanically sound. The one issue that requires attention in the ceiling over the upper bunk is sagging enough to make it claustrophobic up there. So some time this week I need to sneak a peak inside the ceiling to know which of the various youtube solutions I should use!

Daniel Long, found a forum that contradicts my "Neutral Safety Switch" post. Stating it is found on the lower column, assumed to be the steering column.

Yes I would like very much for you to send thru the Manuels.

Thank you so much..

It definitely does! I'm glad you like it.

Hey Chester, thanks for the chat this am over coffee! Anything that generates a auto parts shopping list is okay with me! Need a new chainsaw, too but that's another story....

At 8:29am on March 4, 2018, Daniel Long said…

Just cranks fine (until battery is dead) but no spark, so it's rooted in the distributor/coil area. The parts aren't bad it's just a shame that after only a year and 900 miles (okay a good deal of idling to keep the girl in shape during winter) those parts are going.

I'm going to try and new cap and see if that clears it up. I'm not looking forward to a pickup coil, that involves partial disassembly of the unit. I checked the ignition switch, it's working as it should.

Does it seem like it wants to start when releasing key?
