Changing out a water pump on a 7.3 diesel looks intimidating to say the least,, Its just a massive beast of an engine shoved and stuffed under the hood. And with any diesel engine, everything is super extra heavy duty,, no whimpy parts there. So I tackle the job with a positive attitude.
With my poor eye sight, I apply common sense approach, a bolt,nut or screw has to hold everything in place, the trick is locating them. I first find the drain on the lower part of the radiator and get…Continue

After my 'full-timing' adventure of last year, poor Juno found herself neglected in the yard most of the summer. I think I suffered from a little RV PTSD. As the temperatures grew and the humidity descended on our little piece of mountain paradise here in Asheville, NC I was content to enjoy not worrying about my electric consumption, not having to pack up my home every time I needed to go to the grocery store, and poo that just goes away forever when you flush!
One of my jacks was leaking really bad, so I took it apart to replace the 'O' rings.
One part stripped. It's the pump cylinder, and it is made of light aluminum.
I have the jack at a local machine shop, they are going to make replacements for that part for all the jacks. The new parts will be stronger, they are making them from brass.
If you have a jack similar and need this part then let me know, I can have them run off more.

We Pulled our Capri from Inverness Fl. to Pittsburgh Pa without any problems. It was a little slow going over the mountains in West Virginia and Virginia. We did manage to pass a few tractor trailers that were going slower than…Continue

I recently bought a 1985 Real-Lite truck camper. While I was getting it home, the escape hatch lid blew off and I couldn't find it.
I am having a terrible time finding a replacement. I ordered from Hengs, but it wasn't quite right. Too big and the hinge was wrong. The opening is 17 x 24.
Any advice where I could find it? Is it easier to just replace the whole unit?
Thanks for any help,
Found a great family friendly youtube channel called "RoadTrippin". A must to see their many vids if you plan to visit Fort Wilderness and their most recent trip out west to the badlands in their big class "C" motorhome. Scott & Jolly also do live streams on the weekends and you can participate on live chat! Just subscribe & hit the notification bell. Great couple, it's fun, very informative and it's FREE!

In 2014 I committed my wife and myself to a “summer project”: restoring a 1964 Fireball Meteor travel trailer. How hard could it be, I asked myself. It was only 13’ long; the videos I watched fucused mainly on woodworking skills; anmd I found what looked to be a likely candidate on eBay. The seller, Todd Anderson of Salt Lake City, Utah sold a book and CD about how to restolre one in a couple of weeks. He adsvertised it as well maintained, ready to go camping,…Continue
