"Personally, I would never put disc brakes on anything. In these days of high gas prices you just add more rolling resistance. I have never seen a disc brake system where the wheels will rotate freely when you raise them off the ground. To prove my…"

Hello Kirk,  Just was wondering how many North American All Season units would have been built at the Sioux City plant. We do not own this RV yet. Owner said make an offer but I'm not sure where to start. He will not set a price. Thanks for your time.

Pete

Hi Kirk & thanks for the welcome!

I have a copy of the manual for my RV and will send it to: winbago_gmail.com for posting on this website.

I'm in the process of doing the inside of my RV over with some friends.  I also need to find a mechanic locally to do work on it, hopefully without raking me over the coals.

The electrical system seems to be working, but I wondered if it was worth it to have the wiring updated. (I'm not at all sure how to do this stuff!)

Thanks for your input!

Kirk, I checked the measurements of my tank & it is the same as the one you have.  I am most interested in the sending unit & float.  Would you be willing to sell just the sending unit.  I will pay all shipping.  Other question, do you know what model or any numbers as I have checked with auto parts stores and haven't gotten the right one yet to fit the opening.  Tried Chevy 350 series & others.  Thanks Steve
