Why We Own Classic RV's

One of our newer members from up North mentioned the cost of new RV's and boats vs. the older models and how they are still just as good (if not better!) as new but cost a fraction of the new…Continue

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

Group Opinion: Back up camera, gps and more...

I've been looking for a setup for the center dashboard for the Allegro that will  function as a sort of information center. A decent size flat screened gps unit that can also act as a back up camera…Continue

"What I find disturbing is that this part craps out at about 5000 miles or so. Must be the drive gear either out of alignment or it has burrs on it that are stripping out the plastic gear. Based on the wear pattern, I'm guessing a mis-alignment."

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....

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..

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?

It's nice to see someone else who knows what a B-29 is. Yes, I like the older stuff.
I appreciate your comments. I am at the beginning stages of this journey. I think my first order of business is finding a place to do the work. I live in an apartment, so no garage to work from. I do have some ideas - might have to wait until spring to really start digging in.
