Well the engine in the old Aluma-lite died a horrible and painful death. Cracked block so I don't think I will be resurrecting it any time soon. Now for the 6 million dollar question: what steps…Continue

Does anyone know of a supplier of 3rd brake lights? The one on the Money Monster is missing the lens and doesn't work. It is 2 inches wide and 7.25 inches long.Continue

Replacing Clearance lights

Alright time for my next stupid question. I am going to replace all the clearance lights on the Aluma-lite with Led lights. Can I use plumbers putty around the base of the lights like you do around…Continue

"You might be right about having to cut the lower section and then patch it in later.  On ours, there was a seam on the sides of the bumper, but yours doesn't have one.  Before you cut anything, get under the bumper and confirm that…"

"Take the whole grill off...and the bumper.  My whole front end came off when I rewired the headlights.  Under that trim strip will be MORE screws, and the nose WILL come off..at least enough to remove the engine. "

"Well what I meant to say was there is no seam above the bumper between it and the grill. Now I wonder if I can just cut that small section out and the patch it back together?"

engine pull in 1991 Holiday Rambler

Well the engine in the old Aluma-lite died a horrible and painful death. Cracked block so I don't think I will be resurrecting it any time soon. Now for the 6 million dollar question: what steps should I go through to pull this engine and replace it with a new re-manufactured engine? Do I need to completely drop the trans? How can I get the radiator out without damage? Do I have to pull the heads before removing and then reinstall after the new engine is in? Tried you tube but no help at all, I…See More

I drove long haul for a while as well. And I agree with the tire idea. Ad well as seeing the trailer where you want it to go.

Water pump died

On the trip home the water pump on the 454 locked up. The mechanic where I work, a good guy and worth it I am sure, wants $600 labor to replace it. To be honest I don't have that much free cash. Can anyone give me some pointers on removing the front end on a 91 Holiday Rambler Aluma-lite and a list of tools so I can try and do this myself. I have replaced water pumps on 350's but not motorhomes.

Road Safety

Road Safety: Now that spring is just around the corner and the weather is getting warmer, out thoughts start lingering more and more on getting our RV's out and enjoying them again. As a professional truck driver I have a request that I would like to pass on to both the new hands and the old timers out there BE SAFE! I know most of us have older rigs and we have to baby them a bit. If you are not able to maintain the flow of traffic, PLEASE get in the right lane. Most states have truck…
