Rv stripes?

I need some suggestions for my class C motorhome 21ft. I want to add some design to the sides. My outer shell is corrugated aluminum. My picture had a vinyl decal that only lasted 1 year as the installer did not know what he was doing. I want to paint on some simple design. Not complicated. Have you got any examples?See More

Update for my fuel injection

After 7 yrs, I am very happy with my install of fuel injection on my 1976 dodge motorhome. I have had zero problems and I like the added fuel mileage, though it was not as much as I was hoping for, only about 1 1/2 mpg more. The power at higher altitudes is wonderful. Before the TBI system I was going up the Vail Pass in Colorado with my Saturn toad and about 2/3 rds the way up I was doing about 7 miles per hour. When I took the car off the back, I only did 20 mph. I told the wife that when we…See More

"Daniel, I just installed a Easy Start from Micro Air on my rv ac and it reduced the start up amps from 45 amps to 13 amps. I did this so that I can run my ac on my 2000 watt inverter generator. Have you thought of that?"

Hi Jack,

Many thanks for the tip, I'll give it a whirl and see how we go. I've been under there today cleaning all the crud off and trying to get an I.D on the axle but without success. 

I put some card under last night and there's not been any drips overnight. Hope It's not all gone !!

Jack, you wrote:
"Sorry Don, but that type of video is not my cup of tea. Eye strain and a head ache. I prefer real time videos that do not jump around.Just my two cents worth."

Please do not apologize Sir, obviously, you are in enough pain to reach out to a perfect stranger for help. While I am not a doctor or a psychiatrist I have done a lttle research into the nature of your complaint. The video in question has been seen by millions of people over the past five years and you are the only known case to have a complaint so you have good cause to be concerned. The first thing that comes to mind is you should have your eyes checked for the cause of eye strain. If your eyes check out good then you would need to see a psychiatrist for the cause of the head aches. I am told it may be a case of clinical depression coupled with an inability to sit quietly in a room, alone. I hope this is some help to you Jack.
