Why We Own Classic RV's
9 Replies

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

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

"Yikes. Just yikes. I have one in my Allegro and the old one was shot. The new Monroe one went in, easy peasy and made the ride so much better. It went from flying a Catalina to a Cessna (okay, maybe a Beech). If yours has 2 shocks that just makes me…"

Daniel Long commented on James's blog post help! i have a 1970 dodge oasis, need to find electrical diadrams.
"Try this out. Haynes is usually the go-to manual for the basic chassis. This is the link: https://haynes.com/en-us/dodge/b100-van/1971-1974 Okay, so your's a 1970 but I bet your's if very similar enough to work."

"That's good news. At least that's a easier fix. After you get it started you can slowly twist the it until you hear a smoother running engine. That will get you close, not perfect but close."

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..

It definitely does! I'm glad you like it.

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....

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.
