I have been following the discussion regarding cleaning of exterior aluminium, and discovered the comment Gord's cleaner. I gave it a try, and although it did a great job of cleaning, and gave a good LOW luster shine, is that the best to expect from anodized aluminium?

Well it is time to change out the old tired batteries in my GMC Class C -Got a couple of new batteries and after working on my van I decided to do some work on the camper. Prying the old battery out was a chore! They sure don't leave you a lot of room to remove the battery. The problem is that the battery tray is up so high that with the height of the battery you barely have room to lift the battery out from under the front fender. Plus the tray was rotted and rusted. Solution was to remove…Continue

Got back a day early from the shake down cruise to the lower end of the state. Gotta say I am more convinced about the Chrysler products since my old van 129,000 miles gave me almost 19 MPG in the mountains! She ran flawlessly the whole way we put a little over 600 miles on her this weekend.
Reason for the trip was that my GF who is a photographer as well was scheduled to do a photoshoot of a Belly Dancing event on Friday and Saturday. Had a great time!
A very late review and thank you. Why do I even include late? You guys know me by now.
The 2013 Freezefest went perfecto! 14 people showed. It always hovers around that number.
Paul volunteered to arrive early and lend a hand setting up. We arrived about 2:30 and by 5:30 the tarps were hung by the chimney with care in hopes of friends would soon be there....whoops got carried away. It takes that long to prepare and get things ready.
We had more than enough…Continue

While enjoying some time down in a resort in Pigeon Forge, I was noticing a lot of people with those Toy Hauler campers. I always enjoyed biking when I was growing up on the weekends when I was off work. I was interested in getting back into it again and would love to get a Toy Hauler to haul my bike in. One that I really love is one that is a Raptor 300MP that I saw a man and…Continue
Just joined the site so thought I should introduce myself.
I am the owner of a 1978 Pace arrow. I bought her on Ebay in England and as you can see she had been badly treated for a long time.
The last owner had put in an oldsmobile V8 diesel which he assured me was good! It made 16 miles and blew up!! not a bad thing realy as it couldnt pull the skin off a rice pudding.
After being towed to my friends house we set about finding a power plant.Petrol being so expensive over…Continue
I recently bought a 1951 new moon camper. It is in need of some major work, but the first thing that I am looking for are some wheels to fit it. It presently has 2 split rim wheels and is missing the other two wheels. As far as I can tell it is a 15x6 5 lug wheel. The lugs are the 5 1/2 diameter and the center is 4". One of the problems is that there are little nubs between the studs that the wheel must clear and one centering stud. I am in need of any help to find what kind of wheels…Continue

Today it was time to start working on the motorhome. I desperately needed to fix the fuel enclosure as it was broken. This let in fumes and cold air and just was not safe. I looked all over the internet for the part and even went to a few local RV parts stores. No joy!!! So, I found a cover the could me modified to fit. It was the right width but it was too tall. I had to cut it in half and squeeze it together and then I had to cut a hole in the middle. After all was said and done I…Continue

When my wife and I bought our trailer last year. I noticed that it had 12 volt lights already added to it. What it didn't have was a converter! The previous owner ran all the wires under the dinette seat and had 2 deep cycle batterys wired in series with the 12 volt wires attached to one of the batterys. First thing I did was take the batterys out of the inside of the trailer. Next I went to our local RV store to find out how I could hook up the 12 volt system correctly, He was a great help!…Continue
